I cannot overstate what an amazing venue this is!!! Preparation leading up to the event was so easy with Lauren guiding us and answering all of our questions promptly and helpfully. The week of, she was super accommodating and hands-on, offering help even where she didn't have to, like supply transport and helping lug cases of beer with us. Coordination and prep overall was a breeze!

The day of our wedding was AWESOME. Outside of it just being a gorgeous venue, the staff were amazing. Bev was instrumental in making everything run smoothly from rehearsal, to the night of. She was so helpful and attentive, offering my husband and I assistance with anything we needed throughout the night. She truly went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable - bringing us snacks we didn't get a chance to try during the cocktail hour, making sure we always had a drink in our hand, and just being reassuring about everything over the course of the evening. My bridal party were raving about how they all wanted to bring her home with them, she was such a pleasure to have around!!

Our maitre d Jerry was fantastic and orchestrated the night perfectly. Michelle was wonderful and ran the kitchen smooth as butter. And the food was delicious - our guests were so pleased, and many took the servers up on an offer of 'seconds' which I have never seen a wedding venue do! Everyone I've spoken with was so impressed with how friendly and hard-working all of the staff were, from the bartenders, to the servers, to the valet service.

My husband and I, and all of our guests, had such a wonderful experience - we truly couldn't imagine having had our wedding anywhere else. If you are considering booking here - take our advice - DO. IT. The value and experience were just incredible. Thank you, CBM/Richmond Hall!

I cannot thank Lauren and her team at Richmond Hall enough. Our wedding was amazing. Everything went perfectly. We had so many compliments on the food and venue. From my husband's request for an ice sculpture of our dog to late night Pretzels being brought in, I felt like any request we had was met with "yes we can do that". I spent next to nothing on decor since the room was beautiful with the chandeliers and the included uplighting. This was by far the best value we were able to find in the city. The staff was amazing. Guests couldn't believe that they came out and offered second helpings on their plated steak dinners.

This place blew me away when I entered. Granted the parking situation was a bit wiry but the free valet parking they offer WAS A LIFESAVER. My guests loved the flooring and lighting and curtains and THE CHANDELIERS Oh good god the chandeliers were magnificent. I'd hire these people right away if I were getting married again. In a heartbeat. Thank you Beverly and the entire kitchen crew for taking care of my vegetarian choices!

Richmond Hall was a dream come true. Can't believe how blessed my husband and I were to come across this place. I wanted somewhere in the city so we could take our pictures at the art museum, but every place we looked at previously was too expensive. This place was so classy on the inside because of the high ceilings, wood floors and beautiful chandeliers. SO many things come included when you book with Richmond Hall for such a reasonable price. I really can't express enough how amazing the food and service was. Lauren, Bev and Mario are all great people as well as the rest of the staff and people who set everything up for us. I wish I could relive the day and it mostly has to do with the fact that Richmond Hall ended up being such a success for us.

I believe Richmond Hall is a hidden gem in Philadelphia. With the classically beautiful ballroom and the rustic downstairs bar it has the best of both worlds. We are so happy that we upgraded the cocktail hour, our guests raved about the stations. Lauren and Jenna were so easy to work with from start to finish, always nice and flexible with whatever we wanted to do. Jerry the Maitre D was the nicest guy and truly took care of us all night. The rest of the staff were also very nice, congratulated us and treated us like royalty! We were very happy with the reception and so were all of our family and friends. Richmond Hall is able to deliver a great overall experience and at a more reasonable rate than most in the area.

We were searching for an affordable but beautiful location that was convenient for family and friends. This is a tough task in Philadelphia where prices are high. Richmond Hall is gorgeous and well-priced. We opted for a cocktail reception rather than a full sit down dinner because that is the vibe we are going for. Lauren has been extremely helpful, knowledgeble, and flexible in answering all of my questions and making sure I'm a well-taken-care-of bride. I can't wait for our wedding (ceremony and reception) to be held at Richmond Hall in 3 weeks!

I loved Richmond Hall! The space is naturally beautiful, and with a few simple decorations the place was perfect. People were gushing about how beautiful everything was. I love chandeliers, and this place was full of them. The staff was very helpful and accommodating and made sure we (bride and groom) were well fed. The staff also acted very professionally, and made our night a super success.

For appetizers - upgrade to the white glove 10 appetizer option - the guests loved cocktail hour. They did say it was a bit long (1.5 hours). Valet parking was great, and we arranged for shuttle service to and from the hotel in Center City.

Although the venue does not have a parking lot, the venue offered the service of valet parking, and after hiring a shuttle bus to drive people into the city, transportation was not an issue at all.

The venue also allowed us to provide our own alcohol, and the price for hiring bar tenders was very affordable.

All in all, we had a spectacular time, and cannot speak enough about this place. If you're looking for an affordable option close to the city, with tons of flexibility, professional service, staff, and beautiful pictures, this is the place for you.

I am so happy that I found Richmond Hall while planning our wedding. I didn't have time to hire a caterer and event space separately, and I wanted a venue accessible from Center City. I also wanted a flexible, low-pressure planning experience. Richmond Hall took care of everything from food to tables, chairs and napkins. The hall has a lot of character with high ceilings and a beautiful wood floor. Lauren worked with us to provide the best options for our guests on a somewhat limited budget, and the result was more than I had hoped for. The space looked beautiful, the food was good, but really the highest praise goes to the staff. Many people commented to me how friendly and efficient they are, and I can't say enough about the great experience we had.

Words cannot express how happy we are with our experience with Richmond Hall.Lauren was so friendly and RH was so much more reasonable than places we'd seen, with great prices and the look/vibe we were going for. It has so much character! Lauren kept in contact with us about exactly what we wanted, and was absolutely wonderful about answering my million questions. Lauren did our venue setup, and when we got there, we were absolutely amazed. The hall looked stunning. Lauren set up all of our decor to a T; our special wine glasses were on our sweetheart table, our picture frames, bulletin board /guest book were perfectly displayed, our candy buffet (which took me a day to assemble on our coffee table!) was perfectly arranged and amazed guests. It was so wonderful to see the hard work Lauren and the RH staff did to make sure everything was just how we wanted it right down to the smallest details. And the staff present for our event was absolutely wonderful. When i came in for cocktail hour, the photographer wanted to get some shots at the nearby playground, and Heather took my bags for me and offered me a drink, which Michelle brought right over to the playground! Michelle was on top of everything, making sure my things were boxed up to take home, or offered them to guests, and making sure my husband and I had enough to eat and drink. Jerry the maitre'd was wonderful, asking guests if they wanted to try other food, making sure everyone was filled up on everything they needed. Bev and Michelle made sure the bridal party got all the appetizers from the cocktail hour, bringing them to us in the bridal suite. The staff was absolutely great and so friendly, I got compliments from my guests at the wedding and after it. The food was delicious, the bar had lingerers all night long. We had a fantastic time and Richmond Hall made it a wonderful absolutely unforgettable night for us. The service is impeccable. Thank you Lauren, Jerry, Michelle, Bev, and Heather!
