You may design, decorate and personalize the Benachi House setting to make your event truly distinctive and memorable. You may bring a planner, decorator and florist; or implement your plans with assistance from only friends and family. Our hosts are responsible for set up and decoration. A setup service is available for an additional charge. Lighted candles indoors are not permitted. Otherwise, decoration is up to you. Four restrooms are available to the wedding party and their guests.
We provide a security guard, a Behringer portable sound system, one-hundred fifteen (115) chairs, and dining and serving tables for about one hundred fifty guests. Our Resident Manager will be present for your event and is available in advance for guidance and suggestions. She may also be employed personally for additional services, including comprehensive planning or “day-of” event management. Any required additional equipment is readily available for rent from our Trusted Providers.
You may choose from among our list of Trusted Providers, or bring your own. For catering and bartending, the provider(s) must provide adequate staffing for set-up, service and cleanup.
The set- up of tables, chairs and decorations is the hosts’ responsibility, which may be fulfilled by planner, the hosts (with families and friends), or by the caterers. At the conclusion of the event, the caterers are required to bag all leftovers and garbage; to gather for pickup all rented equipment, including dishes, glassware and utensils; and to return our equipment to our storage building. We can also provide set-up and/or cleanup–breakdown services for additional charges.
To dress the grounds further and provide an inclement weather contingency, one or more tents are often rented and installed on our patio. Heaters, coolers and fans are also often used and are readily available from our Trusted Providers.
