    Amazing venue!

    We had our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception all at the Benson and everything was exactly what we imagined. All of the venues are lovely for photos and don’t need much in the way of decorating, the food was delicious and even our gourmet friends really enjoyed it, And Stephanie was there every step of the way to make sure everything was going according to plan. We had the wedding of our dreams!

    I recently had the pleasure of photographing a wedding at The Benson Hotel for Powers Studios. The staff was a pleasure to work with. Big thanks to their Director Janet for all of her help! And the catering was very good, I had the steak and a yummy Crème brûlée. The hotel and downtown itself make a beautiful backdrop, as well as the Crystal Ballroom with its amazing ceiling.
