    The Renaissance was the absolute best!

    The Renaissance was exceptionally amazing! Tommy went above and beyond to make sure it was the wedding of our dreams by answering all of our questions, putting us at ease, and keeping us stress-free throughout the whole wedding planning process. Tommy always worked with us and made sure we were comfortable before making any decision. He also gave us insight into other vendors, and we chose every vendor he suggested for our wedding... the man has impeccable taste!! Overall, Tommy is AMAZING, extremely HELPFUL, and is the BEST person to have coordinate your wedding.

    We also have to give a shout out to Emmett, who partners with Tommy, and came in for the tail end portion of the wedding planning/day of. Emmett was the perfect mix of friendly and serious, and his personality and professionalism made us feel so confident that everything was in good hands moving into the final week before our wedding, plus he was an invaluable resouce during the actual Reception!!!!

    I also have to give a shoutout to John and Precious for making sure our wedding ran smoothly. They were so amazing to work with and our wedding would not have been the same without them.

    As for the food, the food was unbelievable and honestly the best food I have tasted and I am a picky eater!! All of our guests still talk about how great the food was almost 2 months after our wedding!! The set-up for the reception was breath-taking!! They completely made our vision come true and I was so happy with how everything turned out.

    Please look no further!! I promise you, you will not find better quality services anywhere else. This entire team will make sure your day is spectacular and flawless. They are the DREAM TEAM!!!

    The best! Look no further!

    The Renaissance was AMAZING! LOOK NO FURTHER!
    My fiancé and I were nervous and on a budget because we were both completing our degrees while planning for a wedding. I especially had researched, called, and talked to so many other venues that seemed good, but just not the right fit for us and our wedding.
    Enter the Renaissance. It was on budget, beautiful, great amenities and most importantly of all, the staff were SO receptive and willing to help us with anything we needed (and I do mean anything). Tommy is absolutely AMAZING (but if you've met him you already know that), but also want to give some love to Precious, Chef John, and Emmett for also making sure our wedding of about 200 guests ran as smoothly as possible. Every single person at the Renaissance answered all our littlest questions as promptly as possible, and no request we made of them (from doing a Mardi Gras style second line to last minute changes to the groomsmen attending to getting high chairs for babies) was met with anything but smiles and absolute willingness to help. The food was amazing (our guest still brag about it a month later), the décor was amazing (even better than I ever could have pictured), and the staff were amazing (Precious and Emmett willing to help us do whatever we needed on the wedding day and Tommy even personally helping me assemble a few decorations the day before the wedding). Through a combination of all our vendors, our guests praised us that this was easily the most fun, most emotional, best wedding and reception they had ever attended, and I absolutely agree. I don't write reviews often and I'm very curt when I do, so I'm not lying when I say the Renaissance is FANTASTIC, THE BEST, and if you're thinking of getting married in VA/DMV area you absolutely should get married here!
