I can’t imagine being married anywhere other than the Banyan. It’s such an incredible venue, with endless options. We chose to add the upstairs room for our ceremony, and it was absolutely breath taking. I can’t say enough about this venue, and the owners Thomas and Joanne. We felt at home on our wedding day, and the event was run seamlessly. I would recommend this venue to anyone, whole heartedly. I wish we could go back and get married again.Sent on 03/27/2018

I cannot say enough great things about Tom and Joanne and the Banyan Estate! From the very first day when we toured the property, it was clear this was where we wanted our dream wedding to take place. The owners were open to allowing us to make the space truly our own with a lot of our own decor and vendors. They worked closely with my planner and helped the day run so smoothly. The multiple rooms allowed our larger guest count to freely mingle in the space and still feel a part of the action. The grounds are kept perfect and became the best backdrop for all of our group photos. I couldn’t have pictured a more perfect setting for my dream wedding and we are forever grateful to them!
