My wedding was the very first ever at The Ben and WOW, we were truly blown away by how incredible it was. The venue itself is simply stunning. The ballroom overlooks the water and has indoor and outdoor space. The ceremony space on the main level has a very cool, industrial feel that went perfectly with our vibe. We had our ceremony in The Studio downstairs, cocktail hour on the pool deck and our wedding in the rooftop ballroom. I think that what put our experience so over the top was working with the amazing staff at The Ben, especially Lauren. My mom and I worked very closely with The Ben's incredible events director, Lauren, for 9 months planning every detail of our 160 person wedding. Being the very first wedding at the hotel, the entire staff went so far above and beyond to make our wedding absolutely perfect. I am a very type-A, detail-oriented person and no matter how many emails or calls or texts my mom and I sent, Lauren was so incredibly patient and kind and diligent, making ... Read moresure to always address all of our concerns and going above and beyond in everything she did. She truly made all of my wedding dreams come true, and no matter what I asked for or how difficult it was, she found a way to make it happen. Despite having to take on a massive list of responsibilities that go along with opening a brand new hotel, Lauren managed to make me feel like our wedding was her first and most important priority. In addition to Lauren, the chef prepared the most over the top amazing food for us and Bernardo, the manager, made us feel like we were celebrities from the moment we walked in to the moment we left. On our wedding night, Bernardo arranged to have a photo of us from the wedding framed and waiting for us in our room when the wedding was over. It was truly top-notch, end-to-end, white glove service. Our wedding was absolutely beautiful and my husband and I (and all of our family and friends) can't stop talking about it. It was the most amazing and incredible night of our lives. I wish I could personally thank each and every person who contributed to our wedding at The Ben--they have given us the most beautiful memories and we will forever cherish them.
