LOVED the Renaissance
The Renaissance gave a wedding day better than we ever could have hoped for. They made everything run so smoothly, from the initial planning, all the way through the big day. They are flexible, professional, dedicated, and so incredibly kind. The food was amazing. The venue is beautiful. We have zero complaints! You are truly treated like royalty on your wedding day if you book with the Renaissance! So glad we chose them for our wedding day. We can’t thank you enough Jen and Lana!

I can’t say enough good things about the Renaissance! One of our family friends mentioned the Renaissance when we were on the search for a wedding venue. We fell in life immediately! The grounds are beautiful, but the ballroom is breathtaking! The added bonus of the venue is the suites upstairs which the bridal suite is gorgeous!
Our coordinator for our rehearsal as well as wedding day was Jen and she was phenomenal! She took care of every last detail making our day as perfect as can be! She was very hands on and we didn’t have to worry about a thing!
My husband and I couldn’t be happier we got to share the best day of our lives at the Renaissance, and highly recommend it!

Best day ever!
Go and book this venue for your wedding right now... Just do it! We had the best day of our lives on October 20th and it was very much in part due to the staff at the Renaissance Golf Club. From start to finish, we had about 3-4 meetings with the venue for planning purposes. The team was flexible with us in booking a package, adding and subtracting fees appropriately based on our needs. Brianna was our point of contact for the majority of these meetings, and she is extremely detail oriented so that you don't have to be! The grounds are beautiful here and the indoor space is well kept and clean. We had a very large guest list- 213 guests to be exact, and all of my fears about space in the ballroom were completely relieved after reviewing with Brianna. She was so patient with us, taking the time to show us in person how she would arrange the tables and dance floor in such a way that the room still felt large and spacious. She made excellent suggestions regarding bar placement for cocktail hour that allowed our guests to flow in and out of the foyer without feeling cramped. She came through on every promise she made- including putting some white pumpkins outside for decoration to tie in my theme. :-) She was by our side on the wedding day, making sure we were well hydrated and fed. She made sure we had time to go out to the bridge on the property to take some of the most romantic photos I've ever seen, and even fixed the bustle on my dress with a safety pin! My husband has some severe food allergies and every precaution was taken to ensure he had a worry-free evening as well. The food was delicious, and the chef even made my grandmother's apple crisp recipe for our dessert course, which our guests are still raving about. I cannot recommend Brianna Parkhurst and the Renaissance enough- I feel like we struck gold.

I can't even begin to express our happiness through every step of working with Renaissance.
This was a venue I had had my eye on for years, so I was thrilled to tour the facility and see that it truly is as beautiful in person as it appears in pictures. The building has been beautifully maintained and is clean, elegant, and homey. The grounds are stunning and were perfectly manicured on our wedding day and every visit we paid to Renaissance prior. It didn't take more than a couple minutes on the drive home to decide this was the perfect venue for us.
All the pre-wedding planning was flawless. The staff was responsive and helpful in helping us make decisions on everything from meal choices to napkin colors and even helped nail down a schedule for the day. They are true professionals and it shows in their exquisite attention to detail.
Brianna was an angel sent from heaven leading up to our day and on the wedding day itself. She was constantly checking in to see if I needed anything, to make sure every aspect of the day went smoothly, and even feed me pesto chicken flatbread pizza in between post ceremony pictures (legit, this girl is queen.). She even bustled my dress for me! She is by far the most amazing wedding coordinator and lovely human being I came across in my wedding journey and I genuinely could not recommend her enough. Her entire staff, Lana, the bar tenders, wait staff, everyone was just lovely beyond compare.
Thank you so much for everything - you made our wedding day absolutely perfect and I can't begin to express my gratitude.

I cannot day enough good things about The Renaissance including our coordinator, Brianna who helped us in so many ways. Brianna has a perfect personality for this job and she makes it seem effortless. She pays attention to all details, is efficient and organized, proactive when it comes to thinking of what is needed ahead of time, easy going, and so sweet to work with during our time from finish to end. She and Jen worked together for our wedding day and they could not have made an easier and more beautiful day for us. Everyone commented how beautiful the venue was, food is amazing, and staff were wonderful. Brianna especially helped in so many ways reassure and calm me when it was coming closer to the wedding & she was spot on with everything. Thank you so much for making our wedding beautiful and special in every way!

We would get married here over and over if we could. The staff was amazing and the food was even better. We were married a month ago and our guests are still raving about the food and the Presidential style it was served in. Briana was our wedding coordinator and went above and beyond! If you have the chance, work with her. She ran the show and made sure everything was PERFECT! I cannot say enough about her. As a bride you are worried about so many little details before your actual wedding, and each time I had a concern, Briana was there. I had so much confidence in her and her professionalism. Aside from the staff, the grounds of the club were beautiful and made for gorgeous photos and our guests loved the porch/ veranda connected to the ballroom. It was such a stunning venue!

My husband and I got married May 12th, and Renaissance was the first out of 3 venues we visited. As we were leaving the initial venue tour, Holly said we wouldn’t find another quite like them! She was completely right, and I am so happy we chose Renaissance for our venue! Everything was perfect, and the staff was amazing. We actually met our coordinator, Brianna, just a few weeks before the wedding due to staff promotions and such, and I was a little nervous, but she was exceptional! Brianna went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect for us, from offering to call the bridal salon when there was an issue with my dress day-of, to hand feeding my husband and I during cocktail hour photos! I can’t say enough kind words about this venue. We had the best day ever and it’s thanks to the staff at Renaissance!

Very impressed with Holly and her responsiveness and attention to detail. I am looking forward to my wedding in Sept
The planning should be fun too! We are here for any questions, concerns or help you might need.

Renaissance was an absolutely perfect venue for our wedding. Holly, Brianna and Jen were outstanding to work with. They took the time to understand every detail I wanted and went out of their way to make sure it was perfect. Holly and Jen spent hours making sure all our vendors and details and timeline were in order. Brianna was so helpful the wedding day she was a step ahead of everything and made me feel so comfortable. She was a huge help to the photographer while fixing my dress to take pictures. She also constantly made sure my husband and I had time to eat and drink. Holly's team does more than expected. They served as florists when they moved all my arrangements into the reception room. They served as decorators deciding where to put all my décor. They served at a bakery when the placed my cake and dessert display. They really go out of their way to make sure everything is perfect and all my guests took notice.
It was such a beautiful wedding and so much thought and planning went into it. You did such a great job creating and communicating your vision.
I am glad we were able to make it all happen, just like you hoped!

I cannot say enough amazing things about the Renaissance and the staff! I would highly recommend this venue! We got married on August 19, 2017. We scheduled a visit because we really wanted high ceilings for the reception. Holly was very flexible to meet with us and upon arriving, everything was even more beautiful than the pictures. Holly gave us a great tour, was very welcoming and very accommodating. She was able to answer all of our questions and made us feel very confident that the Renaissance would do everything they could to make our day special. Once we booked, Jen reached out and introduced herself as our coordinator. She was very responsive to all of our questions from day one until the day of the wedding. She is very sweet and will do everything she can to make things perfect. She is fantastic! We had an amazing food tasting and loved that we were able to bring both sets of parents. The day of the wedding, there was a wonderful bridal suite attendant, Brianna, who was there for anything we needed. She even found us a steamer when ours broke and offered to bustle my dress for me! She stayed with us during pictures, recommending areas for pictures and taking care of every request. We went out to the bridge after the ceremony (which was gorgeous for pictures) and when we returned, they had appetizers and signature drinks waiting for just the two of us. They have truly thought of everything!
All of the food was delicious and they were very mindful of food allergies. One of the other key features is that they have 8 hotel-style rooms onsite. This was one of my favorite parts, we could get ready onsite and I could go down and take a peek at things the morning of the wedding. We had our family and wedding party stay the night of! Overall, we had the best experience and everyone at the venue was incredibly accommodating and helpful. They take care of everything for you, even things you didn't know you needed! We couldn't have asked for a better experience!
Beautiful words, beautiful pictures, beautiful couple!!!!
We are so honored to have hosted your wedding.

I was recently at a wedding held at the Renaissance Hotel&Golf in Haverhill, Ma. The food at the wedding was absolutely stupendous! Chef Aaron prepared an unbelievable meal for well over one hundred guests. Everyone at my table was very impressed, and the service was top notch. I got a chance to speak with him afterwards, and he is a great guy who is very passionate about his food!
Also, the day before was a traveler's nightmare, as what should have been a 4 hour 30 minute drive from NJ took 7 hours. Shortly after we arrived at the Renaissance Hotel, myself and 4 others went to the restaurant and sat at the bar. English, who was our bartender, saw how frazzled all of us were. After pouring our first round of drinks, she engaged us in a thought game that completely engrossed us and got our minds off of our long trips. She was so kind, entertaining and professional. In all of my years having a drink at a bar, I can honestly say that English is by far the BEST bartender I have ever met - she rocks!
She does rock! And so do you for sharing your experience!

My husband and I got married two weeks ago and cannot say enough about the Renaissance! From the day that we toured the venue, we knew that we made the right choice. Everyone that we worked with went above and beyond to make our wedding a smooth, successful day that we will always remember! Holly took us on our tour and was so helpful answering questions and helping us set a date. Brianna was wonderful working with us at our tasting (the food is SO delicious! ) and also on the day of our wedding with photos and all the details. We worked with Jenn throughout most of the planning, she was so attentive to us, answering my emails and making all of our requests come true on the day of our wedding. Your hard work did not go unnoticed and we appreciate everything you did for us through all of the planning, especially those last weeks! I cannot say enough about how amazing our time at the Renaissance was from beginning to end. Everything was great and we got so many compliments on the beautiful grounds for pictures and cocktail hour, the gorgeous ballroom where the reception was held(with a nice, big dance floor), and of course, the delicious food! I absolutely recommend the Renaissance if you are looking for a wedding venue, you (and all of your guests! ) will not be disappointed!
We love that we were able to make your wedding day a success for you and for your guests. And we double love that you enjoyed and felt good about the process and time leading up to the day. You were a joy to work with and we thank you!

My son's wedding was spectacular at the Renaissance. The ceremony was heart warming, their vows to each other were so endearing and showed the love they shared with each other. Food and drinks were plentiful at the reception and grounds were beautiful for photos. They made the perfect choice in venues. Everyone enjoyed the reception. Excellent choice for a wedding!
We love to hear from the family of the couple! Thank you so much for your post. We are so glad you enjoyed the day.

My experience with Renaissance was outstanding! Holly and Jennifer were amazing and always answering emails leading up to the wedding right away! All my guests complimented on the great service the entire event and the food was very high quality! Would recommend to anyone!
Happy to hear you enjoyed it as much as we did! Thank you for having your wedding with us...we were honored to help you plan and celebrate.

I got married here 5/13/2017 and I don't have a single bad thing to say. I worked with Holly, Jen and Brianna and they are an absolute power team. They answered my million questions and solved any "problem" I thought might occur. The food was incredible and they were able to accommodate any and all requests. I had a last minute problem with the cupcake delivery and they even handled that, all the way down to keeping over 200 cupcakes in their fridge and setting them up (along with the giant candy bar) and everything looked AMAZING! I left for my honeymoon right after and they were awesome enough to freeze the last box of cupcakes for me and I had specifically asked them to save a few hostess cupcakes for me if possible and sure enough I was stuffing my face with them when I got back from my honeymoon. Every request, every detail, EVERYTHING was just taken so seriously. I am beyond happy with the quality of service provided by everyone here and I wish I could have my wedding there all over again because it was an absolutely perfect night. The food was to die for... The hardest part of the entire process was having to narrow down which food options I wanted to go with. We also utilized the suites upstairs and they are gorgeous! We got ready there during the day and they had staff available at all times for anything we might need. I feel bad that I'm forgetting her name, but I THINK the day staff was named Maria.... Even the cleaning crew was super nice and always in such a great mood. Like I said, I can't find a single thing to complain about. Some of my guests also ended up renting out the other rooms the night of the wedding and they couldn't be happier. My wedding day was PERFECT and the planning and all that was so easy because Holly, Jen, and Brianna really took care of everything. There wasn't a single request I made that wasn't immediately met and they are just the sweetest group of ladies. If you don't have your wedding here I PROMISE you are missing out!
You were so much fun to work and spend time planning with. We always looked forward to your smiling face (and seeing the great bond between you and your mom) whenever you came to Renaissance. So excited for a wonderful couple whose love is so sincere.

The Renaissance Golf Club is absolutely beautiful and accommodating. My family just recently hosted my shower there and everything was perfect from beginning to end. Thank you to Holly, Private Events Director & Jen Dewar, her assistant, for planning It & putting it all together and also the rest of the staff, Brianna, Mary, Evan, Joanne, Samantha & Lisa Warner. Anything that was asked of them was taken care of immediately. Whether it was helping with favors, decorations, or just making sure every last touch was perfect before my guests arrived. If you want perfection for your special occasion, I highly recommend Renaissance Golf Club!

We cannot say enough about the Renaissance. The moment we walked in, we knew it would be perfect - and it surely was. Holly, Jen & Brianna were absolutely amazing. Every detail was noticed, and they were so sweet and professional. The food was phenomenal, the drinks were awesome & the grounds were breathtaking. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. AND, they only do one wedding a day - so you have the undivided attention of all staff. I am not saying that other venues who do multiple weddings either a day or simultaneously don't give you the attention you deserve, however you don't even have to THINK about that being an issue knowing it is ALL ABOUT YOU on your special day. Thank you to the entire Renaissance staff for helping us have the most amazing wedding ever!

The first time we went to the Renaissance we knew we were going to get married here. It was the first place we went to see based on all of the great reviews, and they were all right. We went on a few other visits, but every time left saying, “It’s no Renaissance”! Everything went perfectly throughout the whole process. Holly and her team were incredible. From the first visit to a year later, she’s still helping us. Any special requests we made, Holly took them into consideration and made it all happen for us! They have a few food/drink options, and Holly worked with us to make it unique to our wedding and within our budget. We keep saying how smooth the wedding process went, but we owe a lot of that to the help, dedication and professionalism of the Renaissance staff. The venue itself has such character- the drive way and lobby for cocktail hour were extremely classy, cozy and romantic. The moment you walk into the ballroom your eyes are drawn up- perfect size for our wedding of about 185. We got married outside and everyone kept saying how beautiful the grounds and ceremony was. They arranged the chairs exactly how we requested, as well. The long walk down the ‘aisle’ was intimidating at first, but I savored every moment of it and it flew by. Our immediate family stayed in the rooms upstairs both Friday and Saturday nights- extremely clean, comfortable and spacious. Every guest told us how full they were the entire night- between unlimited appetizers and a generous DELICIOUS meal, our guests were happily fed. The night before we dropped off all of our table settings, extra decorations, and little details with our coordinator, who was also wonderful. She set everything out exactly how we requested it, so we had NO stress at all the day of our wedding. I couldn’t have imagined going to any other venue. Highly, highly, recommended without any reservations.
It was so nice to be part of such a great day, with such a lovely couple. Thank you for trusting us with this huge life event.

My husband and I could not be happier with the Renaissance... The staff, the grounds, the ballroom--our wedding was more beautiful than we could have imagined. Brianna was the most incredible staff member, making sure my husband and I enjoyed EVERY moment, she made sure we actually ate our dinner, and she even fed me drinks and apps while we took our photos! She made sure my gown was perfect for every photo... Even after hours she brought the rest of our cake upstairs to our suite! Jen and Holly were wonderful to work with. I cannot express how stress free these people made our day. I cannot thank them enough. Also, as a bride who had a decent amount of decorations and was not too picky, I let the ladies take the reigns as far as setting up and everything was amazing. The food was killer... Planning and organization was easy peasy... I must have emailed Holly and Jen a million times and always received the most rapid responses. I could truly go on and on... Thank you to the Renaissance staff for giving me my dream wedding!

The Renaissance is a beautiful venue, the food is great, and you won't have to worry about anything on your wedding day because the staff is so on top of everything! Holly, Molly, and Jen were all so nice and so helpful throughout the whole planning process. The grounds are beautiful, and they let us take golf carts out onto the golf course with our photographers to take pictures. We had a short window of time to do this because there was a pretty crazy storm coming, so they had a staff member come with us to watch the weather radar and make sure we got back in time! They really did a great job of making sure everything ran smoothly!
We are so happy that you were able to enjoy the day and the planning process. It was a pleasure working with you (although it didn't feel like work)!!!! We hope to see you again soon and can't wait to see those pre-storm pictures...xo

The best of the best. Our entire experience here was incredible from our first meeting to our last dance. Not only is Renaissance a stunning venue but the staff and coordinators are truly top notch. Incredible food, incredible service and 6 months later everyone is wishing we could relive that night!

The Renaissance really helped make our strange vision of a cohesive nerd wedding become a reality. We really didn't expect it to look so wonderful. The staff was understanding, flexible, and very quick to answer us on every question we had. I'm the bride and they did an AMAZING job making it 100% gluten free without being rude, which has been difficult for me to find in other situations
Molly was our coordinator and she was very friendly, and willing to listen to me vent about my crazy relatives as well as anything else I had to say. The staff did an excellent job making everyone involved in the wedding feel at ease. I never worried about anything when it came to The Renaissance because they did such a thorough job making sure we had strong communication.

Molly was wonderful to work with in planning our wedding. She was responsive and helpful every step of way. The evening ran flawlessly thanks to the professionalism of every member of the staff at the Renaissance. All of our guests enjoyed our wedding and as newlyweds we were both catered to and stress free because of the hardwork and great service.

The Renaissance completely blew me away. After originally doing some venue hunting for our wedding, my wife and I chose Renaissance and were extremely satisfied at how well organized and attentive they were. Being a new location, we were extremely surprised by how well they know their stuff. Not only is the venue and surrounding area gorgeous but your guests will be wowed by the wonderful club room and spacious ballroom. Our event manager Molly is one of the most organized and talented planners and coordinators you will ever meet. She runs a well-oiled machine of quick and attentive staff that set up and break down so professionally, you won’t even think about it. The food was fantastic and came out at a reasonable time. Their suite rooms are also great for anyone looking to spend the night. All in all, the Renaissance was a fantastic venue to have our reception at and we strongly recommend it!

We had our wedding at the Renaissance on 1/16/16 and it could not of been more perfect. Much of that was because of how amazing the Renaissance and staff is. We loved working with Holly, Molly and her crew. From the very first meeting to the day after the wedding they were extremely responsive and flexible. If we were uncertain of what we wanted to do, Molly always had helpful advice and suggestions. She really pays attention to the details which is what makes everything run smoothly and come together. I can honestly say that I was able to really enjoy my wedding day because I completely trusted her and her team. All throughout the day there were people there to help with whatever we needed. Someone was always there to grab something for me if I needed it or to hold my flowers. Molly even made me my signature drink (a white russian) herself! You can tell that everyone there really cares about making sure you have the best wedding day possible.
Just as important, the food was amazing. I mean really really amazing. They have such a large selection with many options. They are also willing to work with you with pricing (within their minimum) so you can get what you want. Since we had our wedding during the off season for the club we were able to have our cocktail hour in the Members pub, which was so perfect. The Renaissance grounds are so beautiful and there are so many beautiful spots for photos, inside and outside. We loved taking pictures in the billiard room!
You can not pick a better venue for your wedding!
