Reception: The Bank Restaurant

Cakes/Candies Vendor:

Cakes by Graham

718 N Cleveland St
Richmond, VA, United States

"Amazing cake. Attention to detail is extraordinary. Graham is an artist. You will pay for the quality though, but it is worth it. My cake was my "splurge" item. But I was having a budget wedding. If you have a fairly normal budget, his cakes will fall right into your price range. I will use his again in the future for specialty cakes. Better than what you see on tv."

Invitations Vendor:


Asheville, NC, USA

"Simple, but nice. No engraving, but elegant. I got the dogwood pattern in blue and greyscale with old fashioned cursive writing. They turned out wonderful. They are so affordable that I was able to get matching thank you notes as well. However, be careful when you order your reply cards. They sent me cards that didn't fit in the envelope for the invitation. That's the thing about vistaprint, it's a DIY type place in that you have to figure out dimensions, etc. on your own. They don't sell invitation packages. Well, they might, but not in any pattern I wanted. So I had to do a lot of cutting, pasting, etc. to make my own invitations, reply cards, and thank you's out of the pattern I wanted. It's a lot of work but it will save you money and if you don't want anything too fancy, it's the place to go. Do NOT, and I repeat, Do NOT pay full price at their website. I've never seen so many coupons on the internet for one site. I got 50% off all of my orders. I think they know people do this, though, and they adjust their prices. It is not worth the full price. You should get a coupon if you want to shop there for wedding invites."


Memories Forever Photography LLC

Richmond, VA, USA

"This family of photographers will go above and beyond to provide you with gorgeous photos. The candid shots were most impressive - their daughter did these and she caught some of the most touching moments of our day. The family are wonderful, kind people who genuinely want you to have amazing photos to choose from. Their website is easy to use, they have a custom price list that is easy to follow, and the communication between client-photographer is always open."


Little Bean Photography

Richmond, VA, USA

"They did our reception and the other photographers did our ceremony. They were fantastic, very artistic and unique shots but also some great candids of our family and friends laughing/etc. They charge a minimal amount for the day of shooting and the pictures themselves are very affordable. The quality is very good and in my opinion they are underpriced for the quality you get. Great unique photos. Perfect for party atmosphere."

The Bank Restaurant

"We were their first wedding, although they have done many parties and events. The location is set up perfectly for a wedding reception. There is an upstairs private room that looks like an old library with books lining the walls and a bar. Off of that is the mezzanine that overlooks the gorgeous building. An impressive location for your reception. They were absolutely wonderful to us and went above and beyond to make our reception a day we would never forget. I got endless compliments on the food and service from the kind folks at the Bank. I couldn't have been happier. Their wedding coordinator, Maegan is incredible. She prices very fairly, too. It is a great deal for everything you get. You don't even need to hire a DJ because they have a sound system and ipod compatible facility. I can't think of any better place in Richmond to have your reception if you are looking for something unique, downtown, and in your budget. I highly recommend having your wedding reception at the Bank. You won't be disappointed."

"Good customer service but noisy, crowded, under construction, my Mom's tv was broken the first night... However, the customer service end of the wedding blocks was amazing. They were so helpful and even gave us Marriott points for the rooms our guests booked. I recommend them for the ease of planning. The hotel will be renovated soon enough, my guests did enjoy the beds."
