We had an amazing wedding at the Kensington Hotel. From the time we visited, we knew immediately that we wanted to have our wedding at the hotel. Leah was so kind, helpful and welcoming right from the start. The hotel is so neat from a decor standpoint, a cool mix of old and modern. The outdoor courtyard is beautiful and perfect for a wedding ceremony. Another thing that really caused us to choose the Kensington was the flexibility with the menu. We had a vegetarian wedding and there were many options to choose from. The chef happily made us an off menu dish for vegans that turned out great! We were so impressed that they offered to make our own dish for us, few places are that flexible. Again, Leah was amazing to work with. While we did have a wedding coordinator on board prior to finding our venue, I am certain that if we hadn’t everything still would have gone perfectly smoothly with Leah coordinating at the hotel. Everything about our day was perfect. Even though it rained on our day and we moved our ceremony inside, no one noticed because the change in plans went so smoothly and the decor was beautiful. The staff at the hotel were fabulous. So accommodating, so nice. Multiple guests commented on how good the staff were at the reception.Sent on 07/07/2019
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 FamilySent on 09/10/2018

Candice did a wonderful job creating my perfect wedding. From initial tour to all communications to the day itself, I felt listened to and she accommodated every request. Having her there to coordinate on the day of the event was really helpful and made me feel at ease. The venue is beautiful, especially after the remodel completed just before my wedding. The food is fantastic!!! Highly, highly recommended.Sent on 04/29/2017
