The staff at the John Marshall Ballrooms (specifically Amy and Hunter) are absolutely incredible. They made planning extremely easy and always went out of their way to alleviate my stress as the bride! Communication was great as they responded to all my questions via email, if not within an hour, then definitely the same day. The venue included bar services, in housing catering, and all tables/chairs/linens/utensils. This all inclusiveness was very convenient since my fiancé and I lived out of state. Furthermore, the Marshall Ballroom is stunning! Great big windows and columns with huge chandeliers; perfect for any ceremony or reception. We had about 125 guests and everyone fit very comfortably. I would recommend the JM to any bride wanting an amazing wedding experience in the heart of the beautiful RVA!

Everyone was very helpful from Amy who first showed us the John Marshall to the wait staff the night of the wedding. The room was changed over from the ceremony to the reception setting so efficiently and it was beautiful. The food was great, we have had good reports that everyone enjoyed their meal.

The John Marshall was an absolutely stunning venue for our ceremony and reception. The front Marshall ballroom is just gorgeous with all of the original look and beautiful chandeliers. Homemades by Suzanne's food was so delicious. My husband was very particular about what he wanted and they were open to all of his ideas! Amy was also amazing to work with and was there to answer all of our questions within the same day via email! Such an amazing location and it will always hold a special place in our hearts!

JM is a beautiful and elegant place for a wedding reception. The food was delicious, service was fantastic, bar well stocked, and the venue was absolutely beautiful even that we kept the decorating to a minimum. It was wonderful to work with Amy, the event coordinator. She is very professional and makes sure the day is stress free for the bride. We couldn't have been happier with our reception and the services provided.

If it were possible to give higher than 5 stars, I would! Amy Loving made the planning and execution of this wedding reception seamless, flawless, and totally without stress. Her smile and calm demeanor kept this Mother of the Bride relaxed knowing that Amy had everything under control. She was there every step of the way - from the initial meeting, to the "tasting appointment" where we sampled foods, to the day of our event - Amy made sure that everything went according to plan. We feel so blessed to have found Amy and the John Marshall Ballroom for our daughter's big day. Unmatched customer service and incredible attention to details made for the magical reception that our daughter hoped to have. The wait staff during our seated dinner did an outstanding job of taking care of our guests - the food was delicious and plentiful. As our daughter and son-in-law said at the end of the evening: "IT WAS PERFECT!" And I agree with them wholeheartedly. I would recommend the John Marshall Ballroom (and Amy Loving) to anyone without reservation.
