Perfect in every way
Our Deerfield wedding was unbelievable and left us completely speechless. They team at Deerfield was exceptional in so many positive ways. The food is undeniable, the staff was warm and welcoming (standing there right as the limo pulled up to get our things), constantly making sure you and your significant other are okay/need anything, served your food first so you were able to make your way to talk to everyone, made sure everything came out on time and was prepared, the servers were all smiling, and everything was set up beautifully. There are no words that can describe how amazing our experience was with Deerfield. Angela is on top of EVERYTHING, even special requests and is in constant contact with you & your family about what is going on. I could not have ASKED for a better place. I hope everyone can experience how beautiful & how perfect this venue is for their special day. We would come back and recommend Deerfield over & over again if anyone asked us. There is not a thing that we would change! Thank you SO MUCH for the Deerfield team for making out special day unforgettable.Sent on 07/11/2019

Gorgeous Venue & Excellent Service!
My husband and I just got married at Deerfield Golf Club in May 2019 and we absolutely loved it! We had our ceremony outdoors on the Terrace (facing the golf course), our cocktail hour in the Sussex atrium, and our reception in the ballroom. We loved that our guests were able to experience all these different locations as each one provided its own unique beauty. We first saw the venue (and preferred vendors) at the open house. We were initially nervous that our 95 guests would feel lost in the ballroom, but the staff did an excellent job arranging the room to feel intimate and spacious. The professionalism and customer service of all the staff members from the open house all the way through to the wedding day was absolutely exceptional! We mainly corresponded with Angela during the planning phase, and she was very helpful and pleasurable to work with. The food tasting exceeded our expectations with it's extensive and delicious menu. The week of the wedding, the staff was very thorough in going over all of our decorations/set-up instructions. We definitely felt at ease that our wedding day was in good hands and they did a great job pulling it all together on the big day. They even thought to move two pillars with floral arrangements from the outdoor ceremony into the ballroom to accent either side of our sweetheart table - for whatever reason my husband and I hadn't thought of that but they did and it turned out so lovely!! Overall, from the gorgeous venue to the amazing staff and delicious food we could not have asked for a better experience!Sent on 07/08/2019

I have captured weddings at Deerfield several times and am looking forward to shooting there again next month. The staff and coordinators are always welcoming and helpful and the venue's grounds are beautifully kept!
I love photographing weddings at Deerfield! They have one of the prettiest outdoor spots in their pine grove for a perfect summer wedding.
