  • We had our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception all at the Benson and everything was exactly what we imagined. All of the venues are lovely for photos and don’t need much in the way of decorating, the food was delicious and even our gourmet friends really enjoyed it, And Stephanie was there every step of the way to make sure everything was going according to plan. We had the wedding of our dreams!
