While shopping for a venue there were a few must haves for us, well, me.. It must be indoors and it must have a chandelier, a big one. It had to be fabulous and affordable. It was also vital that we had an all-inclusive, one-stop-shop; I wanted the event of our lifetime to be stress free for everyone involved, no driving from ceremony to reception, no caterer, no clean up duties. The Renaissance went above and beyond. The Grand Foyer and oak bar are absolutely stunning. Chandeliers? The Magnificent Roosevelt Ballroom has THREE ginormous and equally gorgeous chandeliers. The naked venue alone is enough to blow guests away! And after Tommy and Emmett were done working their magic, our guests were in awe!
Our first visit to The Renaissance was a tour with Darius, he was very cool, welcoming, and down-to-earth - we knew that day it was our spot.
I then began corresponding and making plans with Tommy, he is such a joy to work with. Hilarious and friendly, but also such a professional with vast knowledge and experience in the wedding industry. I felt like I was working with a friend, he was just as excited for the big day as me! The entire process was special and personal.
As an added bonus The Renaissance gave us the most amazing wedding planner you could dream of, shout out to Emmett! This man just exudes confidence, he knows exactly what he is doing, it's magical. I gave him my vision and not only did he bring it to life, he exalted it!
I truly felt like a queen dealing with Tommy and Emmett, they literally granted my every request and made every single step fun and easy. Both of them were consistently available for me at all times, all it took was a simple call, email, even text!!
Everything about The Renaissance deserves five stars - the staff, the service, the amazing setting, the food and drinks, the planning, the attention, everything was perfect! It truly is a one-stop-shop, and if they don't have it Tommy or Emmett will make sure you get it!
