We planned a wedding with The Renaissance from California & it was a dream!

There are simply not words in the English language capable of expressing how overjoyed I am that my husband and I elected to have our wedding at The Renaissance. We live in California, but our families live in North Carolina and Virginia, so immediately after getting engaged I began to stress over how I was going to plan a wedding from nearly 3k miles away. The minute I met Tommy and Chef Jon at The Renaissance so much of that anxiety melted away. Not only is the venue beautiful (with ready made backdrops for photos everywhere, amazing windows, get ready rooms, and stunning carpeting), but the team was responsive, empathetic, and professional. Tommy answered my emails often faster than I could read them, took time to chat with me over the phone (and later through zoom) about what we wanted, and never tried to up-sell us. Instead, he would give his honest opinion about what he thought would look or feel best, and stepped back to let my then-fiancé and I decide. Chef Jon was an absolute delight on the initial tour of the building and at no point did we feel pressured to make a decision. We toured countless locations, but my gut kept bringing me back to how good my experience was with The Renaissance. After selecting them, I knew I had chosen correctly - they were there every step of the way, helping us to plan the wedding of our dreams (and in our budget). As we inched closer to the date, Tommy matched me with my wedding coordinator, Dani, and she too was a dream. She truly helped me to get my life in order and really let absolutely nothing fall through the cracks. Even when I wanted to panic about something, she wouldn't let me - she’d simply respond with all of the ways that they could make what I was worried about work (Tommy too!). Not only was the entire team warm (and funny), but I respected just how much they honored their word throughout the entire process. If they said it, they meant it - and when you're planning a wedding that is so valuable. My guests were astonished the day of. I've gotten so many compliments on Chef Jon's DELICIOUS food (his mashed potatoes are truly unmatched), as well as his support staff - who were respectful, efficient, and friendly. Further, he met the dietary needs of a few of my guests who had extreme allergies with no difficulty at all. My entire bridal party absolutely fell in love with Dani - she ran a tight ship, and from beginning to end with no one missed their mark because of her. We were all truly impressed how she managed to keep our fun-loving and unruly party together with care and compassion, rather than frustration. Tommy was sick on the actual day of my wedding, but he had coordinated things down to the very last detail, so while his presence was missed - nothing went awry. I've received compliment after compliment from my 200+ guests, and I left that beautiful venue on absolute cloud nine. I couldn't have asked for a better team or a better place to have my wedding. Over and over again I will recommend The Renaissance - it's a choice you could never regret.

The best venue around, look no further!

I cannot praise Tommy and Jon enough! From the moment we toured the venue we were absolutely in love with it. They walked us through all of the details to help ensure that our special day was perfect. The Renaissance is truly a one stop shop with plenty of customizations. As the bride, I truly enjoyed being able access the bridal sweet very early the day of our wedding. Our guests highly enjoyed the easily accessible parking behind the venue, as well as the delicious food. Overall, if you are looking for a venue that is inclusive (which helps aid in the stress of wedding planning), has very knowledgeable staff, and that is absolutely beautiful then this is your place!!

Fantastic experience for our special day!

The Renaissance is FANTASTIC! We held our ceremony, reception and brunch here, and it was a great experience!

Tommy, Jon and their amazing staff left no detail out for us, which helped a lot because we are older. :) The reception had a unique cocktail in honor of our dog, Bella, and lots of fantastic food - made by Jon, who is a chef - that catered to all of our guests and their unique needs. The buffet and brunches were outstanding - they tailored it according to our desires. Our guests really raved about the food.

The Renaissance team also helped me to select available vendors in the area for our floral, hair/makeup, photography, invitation, DJ, and cake needs. All of the vendors recommended by Tommy and the team were fantastic!

The amenities at The Renaissance were great. A Bridal Suite is available as well as a space for the Groomsmen - we used both and highly recommend them to help you get ready onsite. (They even let you drop stuff off in advance so you don't feel like you have to take it all on the big day.) One of our guest favorites was hands down the photo booth - highly recommended!

It is located in downtown Richmond, but there is parking and attendants to watch the vehicles, which is really nice. The facility is quite beautiful with an amazing ballroom- a rare treasure!

The day of the wedding was very busy with lots of details, but the Renaissance team made sure all was taken care of so we (and our guests) could really enjoy our special day! We had so much fun, with lots of room to dance!

They are also connected with hotels in the area and can assist you with blocking rooms if you need them. We had family from out of town and this came in really handy.

They are also very mindful of budgets and can work with you to tailor something very special with every budget.

I cannot speak highly enough of The Renaissance! Thank you again to Tommy, Jon and their amazing team!
