Best Day of our Lives!

Hands down, the best day of our lives. Before we even toured here, I knew this was our venue. I had loved it from the outside looking in, and only hoped it would meet our expectations.

From the planning, to the day of, Running Deer was absolutely amazing. We chose to get married in the timbers ceremony space. My vision truly came to life. Miranda, Kaitlyn, & Jessica gave reminders amount payments, answered all questions at the 2 month details meeting, and dealt with my last minute changes. The set up was PERFECTION.

As for the day of, I cannot think of one regret/thing that went wrong on RD’s part. The staff was absolutely awesome. My guests and family members raved about the service, how good the food was, and how this was the best wedding they’ve ever been to. We were truly blessed to have the most amazing team of vendors and blown away by the care Running Deer provided to us on our wedding day. It was truly a day to remember and we cannot thank them enough for bringing our dream
to life!

Beautiful scenery and great team

My wife and I can't say enough about the amazing experience of getting married at Running Deer. First of all the location is beautiful. The club is in a gorgeous rural area at the end of a long road with beautiful homes on either side. It feels so private. We got married in The Timbers outdoor seating area amongst the trees away from the building (highly recommend). There is a large patio area for outdoor cocktail hour, but we were also guests at a wedding that had their cocktail hour inside and that worked fine as well. The ballroom is spacious (we had 15 guest tables fit easily).

Running Deer is a popular venue and many local vendors are used to working there, it seems. Our photographer and videographer had been there many times and knew the best shots to get. They worked seamlessly with the wedding coordinators. Speaking of, shout out to Miranda, Jessica, and all of the staff who helped us throughout the process. They were very quick to respond to emails and explained things well. We had a long details meeting about 3 months in advance of the wedding date and then handled smaller things via email from there on. Rehearsal night and morning of, they were accessible and let us work on setting things up in the space.

They have comfortable bride and groom suites, many beautiful decorative items available to borrow, a room dedicated to a dessert buffet (at least we made sure to include this in our package), fire pits outside, and they work with a local bakery so the cake is included in the package.

I can't imagine having a much easier time planning a wedding. Running Deer made it an incredible night for us.

Best Wedding Venue!

We got married at Running Deer Golf Club last Saturday and it was the most perfect day. I cannot recommend Running Deer enough. The planning process went so smooth and everything I asked for they said yes to. They were very accommodating. Kaitlyn and Jessica were so helpful and answered all my emails quickly. The day of the wedding was amazing! We originally planned to have our ceremony and cocktail hour outside, but it ended up raining. Having everything inside was so nice that I couldn't even be upset about the rain! I gave them all the decor and they set everything up beautifully. All the staff went above and beyond. Heather D was a legit saint! My husband’s button fell off his tux right before our first look and she whipped out a needle and thread and sewed it back on. My dress got wet from the rain, and she took me into a room and blow dried it for me. Our drinks were never empty, and she made sure we had everything we needed all night. Not only us, but our guests as well. The next morning all our guests were talking about how amazing the staff was and how delicious the food was! Everyone said it was the best steak they ever had! I can't thank everyone at Running Deer enough for making our wedding the most amazing day ever!

Kaitlyn Gallo
Private Events Director

Meet Kate, the Private Events Manager!

Kate graduated from Wilmington University for Business Management. The wedding/event industry had always been something she had an interest in, but she never really knew how to get started. After taking a few courses geared toward event sales/management, she was hooked!

Kate’s absolute favorite part of a wedding day is getting to spend the few moments with the bride or groom right before
they walk down the aisle. She said that the couple is usually always a bit nervous, so she likes to distract them with questions
about how they met each other, how they proposed, etc. It eases the nerves and helps put the focus on their partner and love story right before they make it official!

One fun fact about Kate is that her favorite movie is Pretty Woman. When she’s not at her venue, she is spending time with her family and friends!

Riley Mustaro
Riley Mustaro
Private Events Manager

Riley is an La Salle University School of Business alum! After graduating she attended, Rizzieri Cosmetology School, where she obtained her liscense. This led her to start doing wedding hair and makeup. During the trials, and the big day, she would love to hear brides talk about piecing their big day together. Ultimately, Riley began to build a passion for event sales, and with that she took a chance and made it her career!

Riley’s favorite part of a wedding day are the bridal party entrances into the reception. She says “it really shows everyone’s personalities”, “all the nervous jitters they had throughout the day, are over with so they can finally celebrate their love with everyone.”

One fun fact about Riley is that she has 6 siblings! When she’s not at Ramblewood she loves spending time with her family and her 3 goldendoodle pups.

Jessica Nixholm
Jessica Nixholm
Event Producer

Jessica is our resident local, born and raised right here in Pittsgrove, and a graduate of Schalick High School. Jessica graduated with a B.S. in Event Management with a minor in Hospitality Management from University of Central Florida.

After working in a few country clubs as a server in the past (Running Deer included!), Jessica loved having a hand in the success of different events, which is why she ultimately chose that as her focus in college at UCF.

Her favorite part of the wedding is seeing the wedding party all dressed up and watching the married couple’s excitement and love for each other during the ceremony and reception.

A fun fact about Jessica is that she spent 8+ years as an Attractions Operations Supervisor at Universal Orlando Resort in Orlando, FL! Here she learned the ins and outs of theme park operations, specifically focusing on managing the guest and team member experience at the rides.

“It was such a unique experience that I never thought I would be involved with but it was great being able to interact with people from diverse backgrounds and create lifelong vacation memories for guests.”

When Jessica is not at Running Deer, she loves spending quality time with family. After being away from home and family while living in Orlando for about 12 years, her days off are spent with family and helping out as best she can. Jessica also has two cats that she absolutely adores and enjoy traveling when she can!
