Citing its one-of-a-kind sophistication, elegance and rich history, the Bently Reserve was chosen from more than 2,000 venues as one of the best spots in the San Francisco Bay Area for brides and grooms to say "I do" by the readers of Wedding Spot. Additionally, the Reserve's Banking Hall was named one of the top ballrooms in Northern California.

Criteria for the awards was based upon the number of online clicks, number of viewing appointments requested, number of price estimates created and number of weddings booked for each venue on the Wedding Spot website.

"Our mission has always been to provide ease and transparency for brides to discover and book their dream venues," said Wedding Spot CEO Tina Hoang-To. "We've been fortunate enough to work with a number of absolutely stunning locations since our launch, and we're thrilled to have the opportunity to share our brides' excitement for these incredible venues and showcase them through these awards!"

"We are thrilled to be recognized as one of the best wedding venues in the Bay Area by Wedding Spot," says Director of Events and Sales Jim Bruels. "The Bently Reserve was nominated alongside the leaders in the bridal industry, and we are honored to receive this prestigious distinction."
