About

On WeddingWire since 2007

Discover the enchanting beauty of Jefferson Street Mansion by Wedgewood Weddings, a captivating vintage venue nestled in the historic area of Benicia, California. Set against the breathtaking backdrop of the Carquinez Strait, this neoclassical-style mansion exudes timeless charm and elegance. Step inside to be transported to a bygone era, surrounded by nostalgic d茅cor and authentic period pieces. With its romantic settings and inviting ambiance, this venue is the perfect choice for couples seeking a truly unforgettable wedding experience. Our dedicated team is passionate about upholding the venue's tradition of hospitality and will go above and beyond to bring your vision to life in this elegant getaway.

Steeped in history, Jefferson Street Mansion proudly stands as part of Historic Benicia's Arsenal, once serving as the Executive Officer's Quarters. With construction dating back to 1861, the mansion's East Coast architects drew inspiration from French military heroes like Napoleon and American Revolution General Lafayette, incorporating elements of the Empire design style. After the US Military Arsenal decommissioning in 1960, the mansion transitioned into private ownership. In 1998, it was lovingly restored to its former glory by the current owner, specifically intending to create a stunning venue for special events.

Jefferson Street Mansion by Wedgewood Weddings is where your amazing outdoor ceremony can come to life. With a capacity for up to 200 guests, this picturesque venue offers stunning water views of the Bay, meticulously manicured landscaping, and impeccable vintage styling throughout. After exchanging vows, continue the celebration in the enchanting tented pavilion adorned with twinkling lights and surrounded by lovely trees, creating a truly unforgettable reception experience.

We love JSM & Wedgewood!

We knew we wanted to have this venue as soon as we did a tour, based on looks alone! Wedgewood made the planning process so easy since we were able to customize our package & we ended up selecting all of the preferred vendors, since they know the venue best. Day of our wedding, we just had to show up & have a great time to soak everything in. Especially after the planning meetings with the venue, we had timeline all worked out & the team took care of us -- shoutout to Maricela, Taylor & Demika for alletting us know where to be & making sure we had everything we needed!

Incredible venue

Get married here!

The staff at Jefferson Street Mansion are so reliable, so good at their jobs, so fun, and so kind. Maricela and Demika went way above and beyond our expectations.

Maricela in particular took care of us over months of planning, emails, phone calls, and meetings. She was always organized, responsive, and kind. As we got closer to the wedding, it really seemed like she cared about us and our special day.

Demika was our banquet captain on the day of the wedding. She took care of our every need, built us up, and joined the party.

If you get married at a Wedgewood venue, you'll benefit from an extremely well-designed and well-organized system of planners, facilities, coordinators, and relationships with preferred vendors. It made my wife and my experience so much easier than it otherwise could have been.

Jefferson Street Mansion is beautiful and delightful. If you live in the Bay, it feels both local and like an escape.

We loved everything about the experience.
