    Everything We Wanted!

    Running Deep made our day so special.

    The venue is beautifully decorated and makes it very easy for a bride who has a theme in mind. The entire place photographs lovely and really completes a picture. The floor plan is perfect and allows for your guests to grab food/drink and return right to the ballroom where the fun is! The food is great but our guests fell in love with the desserts. The staff is attentive before the wedding and even more so during the event. We couldn’t have asked for a better day!

    My husband and I will always highly recommend Running Deer.

    Wonderful Experience

    From start to finish we had a wonderful experience with Running Deer. Even with a 1 year delay due to Covid, we always felt in good hands. We chose Running Deer because of the ceremony space in The Timbers and how comfortable Miranda made us feel. Kaitlyn did a great job helping us get ready for the day, and we felt comfortable and confident with her guiding us. Both Miranda and Kaitlyn answered all questions we had leading up to the event very promptly. Heather was assigned to take care of us on the day of. We cannot tell you how amazing she was. We were never without food, drink, or any assistance we needed throughout the night. The food was amazing and the venue was beautiful. Many of our guests commented it was the best wedding they've been to and the staff had a big part in that. We would get married here again and again! Thank you all.
