In their article "25 Best California Wedding Venues", Vacation Idea writesThe historic Bently Reserve dates back to the Roaring Twenties and is still just as impressive as the day it was built. The elegant venue, which was once the San Francisco Federal Reserve, will form the perfect backdrop for a more formal, elegant wedding – the temple-style main banking hall can accommodate up to 350 guests for a banquet-style reception. There are various spaces where you can stage both your ceremony and your reception, and the outdoor balcony and the mezzanine level are the ideal place to enjoy cocktails. The stately venue is directly linked to the adjacent Le Meridien Hotel, where out-of-town guests can enjoy luxurious accommodation.
