Highly Recommend!

A huge thank you to the John Marshall Ballrooms for helping us put on a truly memorable wedding! As soon as we saw the space, we knew that it would provide a perfect flow between the ceremony, ... Read more cocktail hour, and reception, and it was! The ballrooms are beautiful; the food from Homemades by Suzanne was delicious; and the ease in which the JM team handled everything was amazing. From day one, Amy and the JM team helped ensure that our vision was executed flawlessly--from using a personal recipe for our his/hers cocktails to lending an earring back right before walking down the aisle, the team could not have been more accommodating and helpful throughout the whole process and on the big day. I can't tell you how many emails I sent to Amy worrying about all of the many details, and she patiently and quickly answered all of them, made sure I was comfortable with what needed to be done, and then handled everything seamlessly for the wedding. We would definitely recommend the John Marshall Ballrooms to any potential bride and groom!
