    Dream Wedding

    Looking for all-inclusive venues, we took a tour of the Renaissance and immediately fell in love with the place! From the glass door, to the ballroom, the place is absolutely beautiful!! We were corresponding with the absolutely wonderful Tommy from the very beginning, and he answered every email promptly, with warmth and grace, his personality really shone! The amazing Chef Jon’s food was so delicious, I still have people talking about it! Precious was spectacular, so sweet, took great care of everyone. And then, Emmett, the wonderful wedding coordinator, he saw my vision and elevated it beyond my imagination. I couldn’t be happier with this team of people! I can’t say enough great things about this venue. They eased so much of my stress levels, and took so much off my plate, it was worth so, so much more than we paid.

    What Dreams Are Made Of

    From start to finish, working with Tommy, John, Emily, Precious and everyone else at The Renaissance was truly a wonderful and unforgettable experience. They were all extremely professional, transparent and really made us feel like they always had our best interests in mind. The food was exceptional, the set up of the ceremony and reception was exactly as we had envisioned and they really put us at ease throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend booking an event at The Renaissance.
