Jefferson Street Mansion

East Bay




This 1861 Formal Military Mansion, masterfully restored to its pre-Civil War grandeur, is one of the most unique wedding venues in Northern California. Located in the Historic Benicia Arsenal, the Mansion is a place where luxury knows no bounds. Rich velvet draperies, adorned with gold tassles hang from ceiling to floor. Beautiful artwork generously framed in gold light up the walls. Antiques and collectibles of distinction all serve to recreate the romance of the pre-civil war south. The same elegance and style is displayed in the incredibly detailed Grand Marquee. From the banquet table, which features huge ornate carved antique walnut center pieces, to yards of swagged ivory brocades with gold tassels, richly detailed statuary with ivy topiaries, and elaborate silver trays for food presentation, every aspect of the service is a visual delight. Your guests can stroll through the lovely garden surrounding the mansion, which is maintained in pristine condition. With an abundance of elegance, architectural beauty, and history, the Wedgewood Jefferson Street Mansion will be the perfect venue for celebrations of all types and sizes.
