Great service, great value, & beautiful venue!
Although my fiance and I made the difficult decision to cancel our wedding at Chevy Chase due to COVID restrictions, they were nothing but the BEST to us. The entire planning process was extremely easy and the staff was extremely helpful. The Devonshire is absolutely beautiful and modern. I will always recommend Chevy Chase 100%.Sent on 02/03/2021

A wedding 3 years in the making! A covid postponement with a happy ending!
Our wedding with Chevy Chase was THREE years in the making!
We first met with Kim Merwin the summer of 2018. It was our first venue tour but my heart KNEW it was the one! After touring other venues, we came back to Chevy Chase and solidified our spring 2020 wedding date.
Kim was attentive, answered this crazy bride's multiple questions and emails, and as the day approached, set up our tasting and final planning meeting.
Our tasting was AMAZING. Peter walked us through the menu, THE FOOD = heaven. We knew we were in great hands with Kim. And with the food, we knew our guests would fall in love with Chevy like we did!
Our 2020 wedding, like most, was postponed. And Kim was there to help in those first few weeks as we worked to come up with a plan and pick up the pieces. When she was laid off, we were devastated. My biggest advice to Chevy Chase and the park district is to never lay off these wonderful ladies again! They KNOW how to manage brides expectations and keep it all organized! A general manager just doesn't have what it takes!
Sarah Leifker became our new go to, and proved to be an amazing resource. So put together, knowledgeable, helpful! We met with her for our final planning meeting and stayed in touch throughout because of course more and more questions ,especially with the phase guidelines.
When our late night snack vendor fell through mere days prior, Sarah was on it and we had solidified our pizza order with her within minutes of calling her!
The day was perfect, we had the beautiful bridal suite with bubbly and snacks. The grounds make the best backdrop! And I can't stress this part enough.... OUR GUESTS HAVEN'T STOPPED RAVING, YOU GUYS! The food = Chef's Kiss. The drinks BEST AROUND. The egg rolls during cocktail hour? Devoured!!
Peter and his team were so attentive to Ricky and I. Kept our meals warm while we tended to our guests and stepped away for some photos at sunset, checking in on us for drinks and making sure all was going as scheduled.
My only regret is not having asked the team to set some apps aside for us upstairs so we could munch between photo ops!
Sarah, Kim, Peter, Miahi, the bartenders, staff, YOU'RE AMAZING. Thank you for helping us have the wedding of our dreams. Our guests left full and happy, our memories of the day = perfection, you helped this Covid bride go from tears to joy!
If this review hasn't convinced you that Chevy Chase is THE ONE. Go see the Devonshire room. Meet the team. Trust us, your gut and heart will know it's meant to be!!!

Couldn't ask for a better day!
Our wedding day could not have been more of a dream. Planning with Kim and Jan was a great experience. Kim was extremely responsive and supportive through the entire process, I couldn't be more thankful for her! My husband and I both live in Chicago and are from the south suburbs and we opted for this northside venue and we have zero regrets. From the first day we walked in we fell in love with the space. We chose the Devonshire room for our ceremony and reception for our February wedding. The inclusiveness of the package made planning for the day so easy. From the beginning you are 100% aware of all the costs and there were no last minute surprises. The food was amazing, the bar package was extensive, our guests enjoyed the wine on the table during dinner, and the cake was delicious. The time you are given for a wedding ceremony here was perfect, we did not need to coordinate an after party anywhere as our wedding went until 12:30. We had late night food served which people raved about as well! I would confirm the use of the bridal suite prior and the day of. That was the only hiccup of the day. We were told we had access to the bridal suite to get ready in that morning/afternoon. I chose to get hair and makeup done at the hotel and get dressed at the venue. When my cousin arrived to steam my dress prior to my arrival, and after my arrival, the bridal suite was being used by the event that was booked the morning of my wedding day. All in all it worked out but that would be my only suggestion. We were able to take pictures on the golf course (which turned out amazing)! I recommend Chevy Chase to everyone!Sent on 06/09/2020

We absolutely love working here. It is beautiful and the staff is always great to work with. We can't say enough good things about this place.
The Chicago wedding DJ pros from Fourth Estate Audio always look forward to each new event at Chevy Chase, because we know everything will be perfect. The grounds offer photo ops galore. Your evening starts with cocktails in the Grand Foyer, horseshoe bar and the Abbey, then dinner and dancing in the spacious Grand Ballroom, with a massive dance floor. And the Chevy Chase staff always -- ALWAYS -- takes wonderful care of its clients, party guests and vendors. Here are some pictures of weddings Fourth Estate Audio has done at Chevy Chase: http://www.discjockey.org/chevy-chase-country-club/.
We absolutely love working with the entire staff at the Chevy Chase Country Club.The service, food and attention to details is as meticulous as mine and would highly recommend them.
