From the bottom of our dancing toes to the tops of our new year's eve tiaras, thank you for making yesterday an absolutely epic, over the top fun, joy and happy tear-filled celebration of love. We had the most wonderful time, and that is because you and the entire John Marshall staff made sure that we, and all of our guests, were taken care of at every single step.
Happy New Year! We are so grateful for you!

I couldn't let another day pass without letting you know how thankful I am for making the wedding of my dreams a reality. Everything was incredible - the food, venue, event flow, staff, you name it - it was perfect! Kimie sent over a preview gallery and I am just in awe at how amazing the venue photographed. The food was divine - I received many compliments on the cocktail hour offering and of course, the dinner. Your staff went above and beyond to ensure we had smooth service throughout the event - they were so kind and accommodating.
I also want to give a special shoutout to you, Maria. You were an absolute delight to work with. Every question was answered promptly and thoroughly, you always had a friendly demeanor and you never seemed too busy to talk to me, despite what I know must be a very full schedule. You made me feel like I was your only bride and that I was the most important event. Working in the industry, I know how stressful things can be but you never let it show. Instead, you lead with kindness and your passion shows through in everything you do. I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to get to know you and for you to have been such a big part of my special day.

The best wedding venue in RVA! I can not say enough about our daughter’s wedding reception at the John Marshall Ballrooms. Everything was fantastic! From the communications with Maria and Tyler, the food, the wait staff, the set up of the ballroom- I could go on. I have not one complaint about the evening - everything was wonderful! Thank you so much to all of you for making this special occasion just perfect!
Again - thank you for everything!
We are very pleased with the event, and received only compliments about the evening including the beauty of the venue and quality of the food. Thanks again to you and your whole team for making this such a successful event for us.
Maria, thank you so much for helping us host such a smashing success yesterday. Everyone was thrilled about the reunion and raved about how much they enjoyed the event. Our team gushed that it was one of the best events LMR has ever had.
Please extend my thanks to Anthony, Marvin, and the entire kitchen team for their hospitality. We will return, for sure!

THANK YOU so much for everything you did for us and our wedding as soon as I possibly could! I truly cannot thank you all enough, it was absolutely beautiful! The catering team was ON IT regarding getting food out in a timely fashion, I rarely work a wedding where the food gets out on schedule but I don't think I have ever worked one where the food got out ahead of schedule, that was truly amazing!! Everyone has kept raving about how beautiful the venue was and how it was exactly what they pictured for a 'Kristy wedding' so that was a great feeling lol. But seriously, you two made it so easy to plan and I appreciate all your help planning and accommodating my requests and changes!
Thank you again for everything!
Hi Maria. It was nice to finally meet you! I can't say thank you enough! Everything was absolutely perfect! You and your staff did an outstanding job! The room looked beautiful and everyone was raving over the food! Thank you again. I hope I will get the opportunity to work with you in the future!

Thank you so much for your help during this event. And a thank you to your staff as well! You all are amazing with what you do and we are so thankful!
We had a wonderful wedding experience with the John Marshall. Maria and Tyler are phenomenal at their jobs. They knew what questions to ask exactly when they should be asked. Maria truly loves a wedding- and her work ethic shows because of it. We had prompt email contact, numerous revisions of contracts and total understanding as our guest numbers shifted. Maria calls her clients “her kids” because that’s the level of service you are getting. When we had a security issue, she pulled through again. We requested a queso fountain; they secured a company. So many things that just made our planning easier! The value for money here is also incredible. The catering is amazing. And catering staff- just everything. We cannot recommend this place more! Thank you all SO much!
