Lovely Venue, Lovely Owners
Tom & Joanne at the Banyan were so helpful throughout the planning process and at the wedding. Definitely a bit on the pricier side, but so worth it. A sweetheart table and bird cage for gifts were included which I don't think is listed anywhere on their site.Sent on 01/23/2020
Tom helped all the ladies up and down stairs and made sure I (bride) was taken care of the whole evening. I went to hug him and my dress knocked a Moscow mule to the floor and shattered a glass all over the floor, me, Tom, and a 100 year old desk. Tom rushed to clean it up and somehow did not yell at me for probably ruining a precious antique.
They were super responsive and helpful the entire time!
Banyan Estate's reply:Thanks Megan, We so enjoyed hosting your wedding. It was such a beautiful event. For the record the deck is fine ;-)

Best venue we could've hoped for.
Tom and Joanne were highly attentive and the ultimate professionals. They were wonderfully response during the entire course of planning and on the day of the event itself. They made us comfortable in that we knew there would be no glitches and had there been I suspect they had a plan "B" for almost any situation - they really know what they're doing.Sent on 01/11/2020
