The Perfect Venue!
Where do I even begin? From the moment we walked into the venue we just knew it was the place for us. Joel and staff do an AMAZING job and go above and beyond to make the day perfect. From the venue itself, to the catering, to everyone who works there, we were blown away. They made the day so stress free, and all of our guests couldn't stop talking about everything. It truly is a magical place, with magical people. I cannot recommend them highly enough.Sent on 09/26/2019

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! :-)Sent on 09/25/2019

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!Sent on 12/21/2018

Lovely venue that attracts the loveliest of clients. It's a pleasure to work here when the opportunity arises!
Joel & The staff at Preston Woodall House are just amazing! I cant even describe how attentive they are to each and every Couple! They are extremely responsive, they pitch in on things that are not necessarily their job which a lot of place don't do....AND THE FOOD....AMAZING! I LOVE working with you all! Can't wait until next time!
The Preston Woodall House has been excellent each time I've worked their. Their staff does a fabulous job of keeping the bridal party refreshed and fed during the portraits, and the food has been delicious every time. They make you feel really pampered even as a wedding professional. It is a beautiful building with lovely people running it.
