The John Marshall was the perfect space for our wedding! Working with Amy was a true pleasure. She was knowledgable and always quick to respond. The rest of the staff was equally kind and professional, always on top of everything and more than happy to help with anything. The food was delicious and plentiful, as was the bar. I would highly recommend the John Marshall to anyone who wants to have a beautiful ballroom wedding and a low-stress planning process.

Amy was super helpful and easy to work with! She was quick to respond. The guests continued to say how amazing the food was and they can definitely work with you to create exactly what you want. I loved the look of the historic ballrooms! We had our ceremony and reception here. Cocktail hour was in the lobby.

I give my highest recommendation to the John Marshall Ballrooms and Homemades by Suzanne. We had my Daughter's wedding and reception in the 2 ballrooms at the John Marshall and our expectations were exceeded in every way. Sarah Rodriguez was nothing short of amazing. She is wonderful and I highly recommend her. We had about 230 people and everything went smoothly. The surf and turf and veggie wellington were cooked perfectly. The butlered appetizers were plentiful, pleasing to the eye, and delicious. All the food came out at once and everyone had a hot meal. The servers were so efficient, professional, kind, and friendly. The open bar...... amazing!!!!! Signature drinks.... amazing !!!!!! Craft beers...... very appreciated!! Venue....... stunning. Dessert buffet ... delectable. If you want the "wedding of a lifetime", where you, as the hosts, can enjoy yourself fully, this is the place to be. It was a wonderful, stress free day. Thank you so much Sarah Rodriguez, Suzanne, and the staff of the John Marshall for making Dana Ryan's wedding such a joyful experience. It was worth every cent. If I had another wedding to plan, I would do it there. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Warmly, Liz Leonard Ryan; Ryan-Kizer Wedding 7/30/2015.

I absolutely loved this venue! I had my ceremony in the Marshall ballroom, which has beautiful natural light, and my reception in the Virginia Ballroom, which is very grand and makes and wonderful impression. Through the entire wedding planning process, The John Marshall Ballrooms and Homemades by Suzanne were extremely helpful and accommodating. I could not imagine having my wedding anywhere else. All the details were executed to perfection. Sarah, the coordinator for the JM, checked with my mother about every 20 minutes during the reception to see if she needed anything and if everything was to her liking. They are extremely professional and always quick to respond to emails and phone calls. I planned most of my wedding long distance so the great communication was key. With the absolutely gorgeous lobby and ballrooms, the excellent service and staff, and the Richmond history of the venue, this is the perfect Richmond wedding venue.

Amy Loving is fantastic at her job, she is quick to respond to emails! I must have emailed her 40 times during the 6 months I was planning my wedding and despite the fact that I probably asked the same question a few times, she was professional and answered my questions promptly. The service was amazing at the wedding, we got several compliments on how good the food was (we had a buffet). The meal at the wedding was amazing and even better than our tasting.

My husband and I got married on December 22nd, 2012. Amy was our coordinator at the John Marshall. This place is a little on the expensive side, but it's worth every penny. Amy set up all our DIY decor, coordinated with the vendors, made sure everything went smoothly the day of, and took care of us all around. Food-wise, well we got raving reviews all night! The buffet was amazing! We had the London broil, Virginia ham, Mac and cheese station, grilled vegetables, and various appetizers. The staff were wonderful And were always checking in with us to see if we needed anything. They were so friendly! Our experience here was top notch! We recommend the John Marshall to any bride looking for a stress free day.
