134 The Historic John Marshall Ballrooms Reviews
Married on 04/01/2017
Everything about the quality and service from the John Marshall Ballrooms and as well as the Catering by Suzanne was superb. The John Marshall was a perfect venue for our wedding. We used the lobby ... Read more lobby for cocktail hour. With the high ceilings, marble, and tasteful sofas and chairs, it was perfect for guests to relax and mingle. The ballroom is classic and a beautiful space with great architecture and chandeliers. The John Marshall includes tables, chairs, and linen which reduced our headache for planning. Bathrooms were spacious, large, and clean, easily accommodating our 130+ guests. Because no one had booked on Friday, we had the flexibility to set up some of our decorations ahead of time (instead of day of) which relieved tons of stress. The upstairs bridal suite allowed us to lock things up there before, during, and after. The service was exceptional. Waiters were always present during the cocktail hour for food and drink and the staff during the seated dinner was on top of everything. Our point of contact was Amy. From the beginning, and throughout the whole process, she was incredibly friendly, warm, and responsive. Her expertise showed as she offered up ideas and things to consider that ended up playing out really well. During the planning, she responded to our emails very quickly and had changes to our proposal done fast as well. The food from Catering by Suzanne was extremely good as well. Our guests commented on the quality of the food and that everything came out in a timely fashion as well as hot! We went with the beef tenderloin (cooked perfectly), salmon, and zucchini noodle pasta. Everyone raved about the passed hor d’oeurves and that there was enough to go around. Instead of cake we did a pie bar which went over fantastically. Amy and her team had 5 incredible pies that our guests could choose from in a buffet style. We set it up so that people could mingle over there at various times and get pie, ice cream and coffee.

If you want perfection, beauty, fabulous food and drinks and top notch professional service look no further than the John Marshall Ballrooms. The prices were very reasonable in our opinion for what we ... Read more we got. Planning the reception was the easiest part of the entire wedding planning process with Amy Loving at the helm. I send her so so many emails and she ALWAYS responded right away. I can't say in words how much she made this process so easy and was able to take care of absolutely everything I wanted to do. Amy is the consummate wedding professional. I felt completely confident with her in charge. The staff was professional and expert at what they do. The signature drinks were fantastic, the appetizers fabulous and the dinner was delicious,. The salads were cold and the filet mignon and crab cake were hot. No one had to wait. Amy knew how many bartenders we should have and there were no lines.The tables were set beautifully .The lobby is so gorgeous and what a beautiful setting for the cocktail hour. The ballroom was so perfect for a near 200 person sit down dinner. The room was gorgeous. The dance floor very large . We did have a lighting company add some special touches and the room looked magical. Tables can accommodate 8-10 very comfortably. The standard linens, table settings and china are elegant as well as the chairs. No need in my opinion to go extra there. I wish there were more comments allowed here. A great bridal suite included to get ready the day of.
