Everyone should get married here
I'm not really sure where to even begin, but I'll start with saying that choosing Running Deer was the BEST decision. My wedding was on 2/29/2020 and from the moment we met Miranda, we knew we were in good hands. Everything was so organized from start to finish, I honestly don't think I had to worry about a thing. They took care of all of the fine details and answered every single little question I had in such a timely manner. Kaitlyn was so professional and so sweet, they really make you feel so welcome there. Any last minute changes were handled with such grace, they were the most accommodating group of people I could've ever asked for. Heather is an actual angel on this earth and I feel so lucky to have had her help on my wedding day. One of my bridesmaid's dresses was kind of falling apart even before the ceremony started, and Heather literally pulled out a thread and needle and fixed it for her on the spot. Absolute anything I needed, Heather was there. There wasn't a moment throughout the day/night that I didn't have a Jameson & ginger in my hand. And to top it off, the venue is absolutely stunning. The grounds are well kept, and ballroom is beautiful with new floors, the bride & grooms suites are so spacious, and the food was off the charts. I feel like you get so much for your money. I couldn't recommend this place enough. Thank you staff of Running Deer for making my wedding day absolutely perfect.Sent on 03/31/2020
