    Amazing Venue and Staff!

    I would highly recommend the Ballroom at the Ben! We worked with Emily and she was amazing! She was extremely helpful and supportive throughout the process. She was always available to answer questions and responded to emails extremely quickly. She made the planning process a breeze and was a joy to work with! Ott was also incredible to work with. He was extremely organized and made the week before stress free. He took care of me and family the day of and made sure we had everything we need. My parents couldn’t speak highly enough of him.

    The venue itself was incredible as well. My guests raved about the food, especially at cocktail hour. Many people said they have never been at a better cocktail hour. The venue itself is beautiful and the extra additions the Ben provides makes it truly a wedding to remember. The staff was all friendly, helpful, and professional. What you get at the Ben for the price is well worth it. I truly feel like every penny I spent was worth it and went to good use. I can’t recommend the Ben and Finley Catering enough, they made my wedding unforgettable.

    Perfect Wedding

    My husband, daughter, and her fiance looked at nine venues and none compared in beauty, menu choices, space flexibility and professionalism. We first met with Stacy, who is so pleasant and knowledgable. Once we went to contract, she guided us through menu options - which were so plentiful, seating layouts, and all of the amenities. Then, she worked seamlessly with our wedding planner. A month prior, we met with Ott, who's role is everything: the logistics of the entire event flow through him and he doesn't stop for one second. From the coordinator, catering director, lighting designer, ceremony coordinator, go-to-guy for every vendor and everything else. Just call him the most efficient general contractor you will ever meet. In the middle of it all, he stopped to make sure that my husband and I tasted everything, special culinary requests were attended to, and the bride and groom were taken care of. Just thinking about how much he handled still makes my head spin. Now about the food: it was nothing short of divine. The cocktail hour included perfectly prepared lobster tails, lamb chops, oysters and even vegan selections. Chilean Sea Bass (just one of the main course options) was the best I've ever tasted. Our friends and family have very high standards, and everyone told us that three was absolutely nothing we could have done to make the evening more perfect. Thank you, Ott, Stacy and Finely!
