    Amazing venue

    My wife and I held our 150 guest wedding ceremony and reception at the beautiful Renaissance in February 20,2022. We had been planing this wedding for a little over a year and could not be any more pleased at how great the process was as well as our wedding day. Tommy and Jon (the owners and Jon is the head chef), were so welcoming from day one and you could tell they really wanted us to have the wedding of our dreams. They gave suggestions and even went along with some new fun ideas that we wanted to try. They have the warmest personalities and by the end of this wedding journey we all felt a bit attached to each other LOL! The value of the Renaissance is unmatched—an all inclusive venue with options for upgrades, they even have their own parking lot which is great since it is in downtown Richmond. The food was superb and so flavorful! The bar and bar attendants were amazing. They have great connections with all sorts of vendors you could want and all of our vendors LOVED working at the Renaissance! Also, they have a wedding coordinator that made sure the weekend went smoothly. We’re truly at a loss for words because everything about this venue suited our needs and wants! Impeccable staff, atmosphere, food, location and amenities. We cannot thank Jon, Tommy, Emmett , and Precious enough for all their hard work and care that they put into our special day! It was a true fairytale thanks to all of them. The best decision you could make in planning your wedding is to go with the Renaissance because you’d immediately knock off so much on your to do list and lessen your stress levels!

    Amazing wedding venue

    I cannot express enough how amazing The Renaissance was for our wedding (10/30/21).
    From the moment we met Tommy we were sold! He went above and beyond to meet all of our needs and answer every question quickly and efficiently. He actually provided more detail then I originally thought I needed! He is such a positive person and a breath of fresh air when dealing with all the stress of wedding planning.
    Chef Jon is a master at what he does! The food at the tasting was incredible. We were worried about how it would be with a large wedding party, but it was perfection! Our guests raved about how great the food was.
    Precious and the wait staff made my husband and I feel like we were royalty. Always checking on us throughout the night to see what we needed. I can gladly say I always had a full glass in my hand.
    The venue itself is absolutely stunning! Right in the middle of Richmond - it has such a historical and elegant vibe to it. The burgundy and gold colors were the perfect touch for our fall wedding.

    I HIGHLY recommend The Renaissance. The staff and venue made our day so special and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day/night!
