The Bently Reserve recently finished in 5th place in the BayList 2010 Best Wedding Venue competition — and was the only venue in the city of San Francisco to make the top five cut. We're delighted to have been voted the best wedding venue in San Francisco, and also to be in the final five for the entire Bay Area!

This honor follows closely on the heels of the Bently Reserve's selection as one of the Best of 2010 at The Knot.

The BayList is an interactive city guide featuring promotional contests hosted by the San Francisco Chronicle. The BayList profiles local businesses and allows consumers to vote for and recommend their favorites. Eligible businesses are nominated by readers and winners are determined by popular vote, meaning that Bay Area locals choose the Best of 2010. More than 71,000 people voted in this year's contest.

Vivian Perez, the Event and Sales Manager at the Bently Reserve, had this to say about the event space: "The Banking Hall is not only a beautiful space, but it is also very versatile. Because of that, we have been able to host the most diverse weddings in San Francisco. The space lends itself to all sorts of weddings — from the traditional to the ethnic to the modern — and we really enjoy working with the most creative planners and brides on the West Coast."

Everyone at the Bently Reserve is thrilled that San Francisco has shown its appreciation for the innovative weddings we host. Thanks to all who voted!
