  • From the moment I met Tommy from The Renaissance and I saw the space, I knew that was the place I wanted my wedding reception to be at. It’s very unassuming from the outside. There is so much character inside the Renaissance and it was in line with the historic theme of my wedding. Planning a wedding is already stressful and planning a wedding during a PANDEMIC is ten times the amount of regular wedding planning stress. However, I truly found solace with the staff at the Renaissance. No matter what time of day I sent an email (I emailed them A LOT), the staff was superbly professional and responsive. We talked all the time during the past year and I felt so safe and secure with them and their team experts. No matter what issue I thought was urgent or a fire, they took addressed it and truly comforted me in this COVID environment. During the pandemic, they also made sure to follow all safety and health protocols to keep not only our guests safe, but their staff as well. For o... Read more

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • The wedding that you dream of all of your life as a little girl, The Renaissance can make your dreams a reality! Our wedding was 10.10.2020 and it was the best day of our lives. Everything was perfect. My fiancée and I were stress free and simply amazed with everything. The staff there is BEYOND AMAZING!!!! Tommy was our everything from the time we booked the venue until the day of our wedding. He was understanding and patience and knew exactly what to do when we had no idea what to do! He answered all our questions and more very quickly. Never had to wait long to hear back from him which was very very comforting. Chef Jon, is also AMAZING!!! His Chef Jon special cookie is a little taste of heaven!!!! He checked on my fiancée and I the day of the wedding to make sure we were ok. That moment truly warmed my heart. And our girl Precious!!!!!! OMG when I mean she is the bomb.com! She made sure my fiancée and I had everything we needed the day of! She went above and beyond to assure our... Read more

  • I cannot say enough great things about Tommy, Emmett, John, Precious, and the entire team at The Renaissance! On day one touring the venue they were warm and welcoming and helpful, and it only got better from there. I decided to book them for my wedding before I even left the building after meeting Tommy and seeing the beautiful space. From there, we had constant communication over the next 10 months of planning and I always felt like I had their undivided attention (even though I know they were planning and executing several other weddings during that 10 month span). They got totally on board with some of my more unconventional ideas, and offered valuable assistance for aspects of wedding planning that were completely foreign to me (lighting and linens and napkins, oh my). They helped me feel completely at ease on my wedding day knowing that every little thing was taken care of and planned down to the minute (and Emmett even took on bridesmaid duties when my poor girls couldn't figure...

  • My guest had a great time. It’s a good location. The venue is beautiful inside and that helped with not needing to spend too much on decor. The staff catered to all our needs that day and took a lot of stress off us.

  • We couldn't have asked for a more picturesque setting for our wedding and are so glad we chose The Renaissance! It was absolutely perfect and heard repeatedly throughout the evening what a beautiful venue and how seamlessly it all came flowed. I still find myself looking down at my ring and remember what a perfect day we had amidst the world's uncertainty. Tommy gave input when we asked and helped us to make the day as flawless as possible and easing all worries we had. We understand that this is a stressful and uncertain time not only the couples hoping for the day of their dreams but for Tommy and his staff hoping to bring those dreams to life. They made the planning process easy for us-we didn't have to think about how to enact safety precautions as we know most other couples have had to do. Instead of worrying about the logistics, we took comfort in knowing that Tommy and the entire staff had it covered and that our day would truly be OURS to enjoy. The food was also DELICI...

  • The Renaissance is an A+ wedding venue. After our first tour, we decided almost immediately that we wanted to book the Renaissance for our reception. Tommy, Jon and Precious are an amazing team. From our very first meeting, Tommy walked us through every step of the process with expert and honest advice. We ended up having to reschedule our wedding due to COVID and Tommy made the rescheduling process seamless. Their online planning tools made planning easy and kept me organized too! When I dropped off some of our decor Thursday before there wedding I felt so confident that the team would make everything look beautiful, and they definitely delivered. The food was incredible! My husband and I were fully expecting to not have time to eat our meals but we were served first with plenty of time time our delicious meals and still visit with our guests. You can’t beat the location either. We were married at St Peters downtown and had a trolley take guests from the church to... Read more

  • 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... Read more

  • We knew when we first met the guys at the Renaissance that we were in good hands. They handled every detail from the day we met until the last second of the wedding day with care, professionalism, and expertise. We felt as if we were their only client as they helped us plan and prepare for the perfect day. They made planning easy and provided our daughter with her fairy tale wedding.

  • 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 w...

  • The staff at the Renaissance went above and beyond what we expected in our Wedding venue. They helped us every step of the way and helped us find direction when we were struggling to make a decision. Everything went smooth at the wedding and it ended up being the best party I've every attended. I Highly recommend you at least setup a meeting with Tommy to see if the Renaissance will be a great fit for you. I don't see how it couldn't be. This place and staff rocks! Almost forgot to mention, best wedding food ever.

  • From day one of touring the venue, Tommy was extremely helpful and became a regular point of contact for me throughout wedding planning. He went above and beyond to ensure I had my questions answered and was readily available at a moments' notice if I needed anything. The entire team, including John, the wedding planner, and Precious, were amazing during our wedding day. They helped me feel way less stressed and went out of their way to make sure everyone was happy. The venue was perfect, and everyone said how awesome the wedding was. I highly recommend this hidden gem in Richmond to anyone who is looking for a great ballroom with lots of character and great staff!!!

  • I cannot say enough good things about the staff at The Renaissance. Tommy Waters was the first person you speak to. The place sold itself but Tommy was amazing at communication and was extremely transparent since day 1... there were no hidden costs or any secrets. I emailed and called him about a million times throughout the 1.5 years it took to plan my wedding and he was always energetic and willing to help at any capacity. He gave amazing recommendations for my florist and baker and the decor for the wedding was everything I could have imagined and more. Emmett was in charge of the day of the wedding and WOW he was amazing. Everything ran flawlessly. Any issues that we had he immediately nipped it in the butt in a discrete way. He kept the night running so smoothly and I had no worries at all. He checked on my several times and made sure I had everything that I needed. He made sure I looked beautiful going down the aisle by fluffing my dress and he also helped me bustle my dress.... Read more

We could not have had such a wonderful wedding without them!
