    Absolutely the BEST Wedding Venue!!

    Let me sing praises for Joel, the owner, his incredibly talented vendors and his outstanding staff! What a fabulous venue tucked away in historic downtown Benson! My daughter got married here in September 2019. We purchased a weekend package. A destination wedding in our own backyard! The wedding party and family stayed on site. So we really got to celebrate the impending nuptials! We spent a year and half planning this wedding. We have very high standards and details are extremely important! Let me say that Joel and his staff treated us like royalty for the entire weekend and made sure our daughter and son-in-law's wedding was perfect and exceeded our expectations! They were on point and on top of every detail! It's a huge plus that Joel has already vetted out the best vendors and, consequently, they all go above and beyond to impress! Our guests were absolutely amazed! Starting with the rehearsal dinner to the pristine garden ceremony, cocktail hour, gorgeously decorated ballroom reception and so on! The food, the flowers, the DJ, the photographer and even the photo booth! We are still having friends and family tell us that it was the best wedding they've ever been too! It was epic! We could not be more pleased! :-)

    Organization like no other

    I cannot say how grateful I am to Joel and his staff for the warmth and attention they provided not only to our wedding party and I but also to our guest. We chose to do in-house catering and they exceeded our expectations. Our guest and us cannot stop talking about how delicious the food was. The organization is unmatched! When I say they put in work I mean they really put in work! The staff made sure the entire day went by seamlessly. The best decision I made after marrying my husband was to have our wedding at the Preston Woodall House!
