We are still in the planning process of our wedding, but the Maymont Staff have been nothing short of fantastic. Catherine has been such an amazing help in handling all my phone calls, emails, and questions. I was worried about the planning process being that my fiancé is deployed, but she has been a great help!

Maymont is such a beautiful location to get married at, and it was a beautiful day full of love. We rented the stone barn for the rehearsal, and while it is sparse, it certainly did the trick. they even allowed me to store my flowers that we made during the rehearsal and helped me transport them over, which was very generous and helpful. The wedding day of, everything was set up the way we requested, and the service went perfectly. We had a few unfortunate hitches in the day, i never knew when the carriage was picking us up and for how long the ride was (that would help the photographer plan their day as well), the ceiling had some mold on it (which they fixed day of), the ice maker didn't work (so we had to buy a lot of ice), and the sound system did not work. The bathrooms also needed some TLC- broken towel dispensers, stains on the ceiling. We didn't hire a DJ- because the sound system was working when i viewed the space, and a friend of mine got married in the same reception space and just used an Ipod- so i thought we could save some money there. That turned out to be a terrible decision, and if i had known it would cause me so much sadness i would have hired a DJ. It was embarrassing not having music at the reception, and not having any guests dance was a real let down. But Maymont did at least make an attempt to fix it- bringing in a portable sound bar so one of the rooms had some quiet music. they also refunded me some of my fees because of the issues- so were responsive to the issues at hand. I can't say enough about Catherine's professionalism, she is a seasoned pro and is very responsive via email. But for the price i paid, i think i expected things to go a little smoother. Pros: BEAUTIFUL ceremony space, ample parking, excellent photo opportunities, it felt very special to be in the park after it closed, and it felt so very Richmond! Cons: It would be great to have better communication day of, and a little more attention to detail over all.

I have booked Maymont as my wedding site for March 2016. It is beautiful and was actually priced comparable, if not lower, to a lot of sites for that time of year. The only thing I did not like was you had to use their list of caterers. But even with that we found one who is great and the wedding will be wonderful.

Maymont was an absolutely beautiful location for my daughter's wedding. We used the Italian Garden for the ceremony and the Nature Center for the reception. The sales staff were very professional and responsive. They had a representative on site for the rehearsal and the wedding who was very helpful and made sure everything Maymont was responsible for was in place. The Maymont staff had walkie talkies which helped with communication between the two sites when I was couldn't reach my wedding planner by phone or didn't have it on hand. The price seemed a little high to me but I didn't price any other venues. I paid extra for an extra hour, to rent the exhibit area, to rent the tram, and to have the golf cart available for those who needed assistance. It is a little more difficult venue than a hotel because you have to bring everything in and the ceremony and reception sites can require driving. The two hour set up time goes by really fast. I rented the exhibit area for cocktail hour to have extra space in case we needed to use part of the reception area for a ceremony rain plan but food and drinks are not allowed in there and my guests didn't know the exhibit area was open so I recommend a sign. I also recommend a rug where the carriage drops off the bride for the ceremony so she doesn't have to walk throught the dirt, and bottled water for the guests if it's a summertime event. I did not have a transportation plan for the wedding party because I thought they would all have cars parked near the ceremony site but they didn't. Fortunately, Maymont held the tram over until pictures were done, past the time I rented it for, to take the wedding party up to the Nature Center. Overall it was a very beautiful venue, Maymont did everything they said they would plus more, and I was told by guests that it was like a fairytale wedding.

My husband and I got married in the Italian Gardens at Maymont last June. Yes, it's very expensive, but the scenery just cannot be beat. The garden and the grounds make for the most gorgeous pictures. The only complaint I have, is that there wasn't much communication the day of the wedding. Yes, I probably should have asked exactly where the dressing room was located, and yes, I should have verified exactly what time the horse and buggy were going to pick me up, but I honestly feel, even a year later, that that's something that should have been communicated to me by the staff. They were all buzzing around, but no one really mentioned either of those things. A bride has enough to think about during the wedding planning and the day-of; a little help would have been appreciated.

I originally live in Florida. My husband and I want to get married by a waterfall. Thus, began my 7 day road trip to 16 different waterfalls to find my perfect wedding spot. Maymont was the second or third waterfall I visited and I feel in love. As soon as I saw the waterfall and Japanese garden I could picture myself getting married on the bridge in front of the waterfall. Then I went to visit the Nature Center and knew that is were I wanted to have the reception. The beautiful tent on the terrace overlooking Maymont's extraordinary grounds could not be more picturesque. Being that I live out of state I thought it would be difficult to coordinate a wedding but everyone at Maymont was so helpful and accommodating. Rebekah was extremely helpful in answering every question, making sure my wedding day would be magical. During the wedding the coordinator at Maymont made sure everything ran smoothly, running like clock work. She was so patient with me and made sure I got everything I wanted. Thanks to Maymont Park and its staff I was able to get the fair tale wedding I have always dreamed about.

We had a wonderful experience with Maymont from beginning to end.

We were married in the Japanese Garden of Maymont Park and we could not have asked for a more perfect place. The staff were incredibly helpful and supportive. The scenery is so beautiful, there really is no need to go all out on decor/flowers.

We had our reception at the Nature Center. They have a very large terrace that overlooks the park and they provide a tent that covers the terrace. They were able to accommodate our 5-piece band, caterer, and photobooth. We had a blast!

We were thrilled with the service we received at Maymont! The staff was incredable and always willing to help out. Pre-wedding, I must have emailed my contact a million times. Each time, she replied quickly and was always helpful. The day of the wedding we were blown away by how organized and easy it was!

Maymont is a beautiful and easy place to get married! :)
