Why We Like This Place

Perched above the Carquinez Strait, the historic town of Benicia has a beautiful architectural legacy, perfectly embodied by the stunning Jefferson Street Mansion. Built in 1861, this classical Federal Italianate-style building has been meticulously renovated as a fabulous special event venue, which modern media has dubbed one of the “Most Romantic Spots in Northern California.”

The mansion’s initial impression of nostalgic grandeur is enhanced inside its magnificent double parlors, trimmed with custom gilt molding. Two marble fireplaces, 12-foot-high windows, crystal chandeliers and antique mirrors complete the effect. Upstairs, the bride and her attendants prepare in the air-conditioned and magnificently arrayed dressing room, which boasts its own fireplace and chandelier. Brides also love the white-and-gold dressing table and the antique armoire with a full-length mirror—the better to admire her wedding attire!

Though you and your guests are encouraged to wander through the mansion, the primary festivities take place outside. The Veranda works well for smaller events and ceremonies anytime of year. And it’s the perfect place for the bride to begin her grand entrance, descending the steps on her way to the West Lawn where a classical colonnaded wisteria arbor shades her waiting guests. Here, vows are exchanged beneath a 15-foot-high trellised arch flanked by two majestic palm trees. Receptions are held in the garden on the mansion’s opposite side among fountains, statues and flowerbeds, or in the elegant fabric-draped Grand Pavilions (each with elegant chandeliers). The buffet is set up in front of two exquisite antique back-bars.

No matter how lovely the surroundings, your event isn’t going to be much of a success without experienced staff working behind the scenes, and that’s exactly what you’ll get here. With over 30 years experience in planning memorable celebrations, Wedgewood Weddings consider it their personal mission to keep things running smoothly. Another plus: Wedegewood’s fully customizable event packages, which provide so much more for less (as in, less money and less stress!). And with a later-than-usual event curfew, you can extend the party until midnight.

So if you’re seeking a venue with the romance of the past and the convenience of the present, take a trip to Benicia and Wedgewood Jefferson Street Mansion. Your event is sure to be a day you and your guests will never forget.
