The perfect venue!
Our wedding was planned for 2020 and we had to postpone it to 2021. They were really flexible with us and made it easy for us to change our date. Throughout the process, we met with Leah a few times virtually and she answered all of our questions and helped make sure we were following the current guidelines and restrictions. It was cold and rainy on our wedding day, so we decided to move our ceremony indoors and she made the ceremony space look amazing! When I saw how everything looked, I was happy with getting married in the ballroom instead of in the courtyard. She made sure the venue was decorated beautifully and to our liking. There were times before the wedding when I felt very stressed and overwhelmed planning a Covid wedding, and Leah helped ease my nerves and made the process easier. I was worried my wedding was not going to look the way I wanted it to due to covid and the restrictions, but Leah and the staff at the hotel made our wedding better and more beautiful than I could’ve imagined it!
If you are looking for a venue that will work with you to make your day how YOU want it, not just their cookie cutter wedding, then the Kensington is a great venue. We had an amazing wedding.

We had our son's wedding here. It was an amazing experience. We recommend this hotel highly if you are planning a wedding. From the beginning until the very end they are with you every step of the way. Helping you with all the details, even the ones you never even thought of. They gave my son and daughter a fairy tale wedding. Many of the guest stayed at the hotel and loved it. The staff was the best, tending to everyone's needs. I can't say enough about the staff and this hotel, they were wonderful. Leah our wedding coordinator even taking care of the bride's dress sewing buttons on her dress to hold up her train. Polite, knowledgeable, definitely going above and beyond to make our experience a memorable one, thank you so much. The Vaughan Family
