Owners Tom and Joanne
They were both very helpful. When giving advice from their many years of experience, Tom and Joanne were not overbearing and made every effort to listen to both the bride and groom’s needs and desires. They were very assessable and if not available by phone, returned our calls within minutes or a few hours. Being the mother of the bride, I needed to be in contact with them often especially in the last several weeks before the wedding. At the wedding and after, the feedback we received was only complimentary! I highly recommend Tom and Joanne and their venue, The Banyan Estate for your wedding and event needs. You will so pleased you did!! 😃Sent on 10/11/2019

We recently held our wedding and recention at the Banyan Estate (2/23/19) and we couldn’t have picked a better place. The owners, Tom and Joanne are fabulous and really get into the planning process and work with you to make your day extra special. We were married outside in the back by the Banyan tree, held the reception in the pavilion, cocktail hour in the beautifully renovated lobby and the bridal party got ready upstairs in the gorgeous loft with big windows and tons of natural lighting (great for make up and photos!) It was our perfect day! We loved working with Tom and Joanne and we highly recommend the Banyan Estate if you want elegance and professionalism without the high price!Sent on 04/05/2019

Excellent service as usual
As an event space, Banyan Tree Estates is a beautiful and versatile venue that can easily accompdate a ceremony and reception no matter what the weather is. Our theme was vintage travel, and Banyan was the perfect backdrop. Unlike other venues, we felt like Tom and Joanne, truly cared about your day and our party. They were involved in every step of the process, and made our day very special.Sent on 03/22/2019

The Banyan Estate is an absolute gem! The owners are incredibly helpful & passionate and the venue itself is absolutely stunning! Light pours through the massive windows making it an ideal location for portraits. It possesses a distinct historic charm with updated amenities. I would highly recommend the Banyan Estate to anyone looking for a classic yet unique venue for their wedding day.
