    Best Day Ever!

    From the start, the team members who I worked with throughout the planning process of our wedding were extremely responsive and helpful! I communicated the most with Kate, the private events manager, prior to the wedding day! She was so quick with responses to questions, and helpful with planning details. Our day of coordinator and concierge, Jessica & Heather, were wonderful! The venue is beautiful and we loved everything about our wedding day!

    Running Deer Golf Club by Ron Jaworski Weddings's reply:

    Jamie- What a lovely day it was! We are incredibly thankful to work with couples like you and George and are ecstatic to hear that we were able to plan and execute the wedding you've always dreamed of! Enjoy your time together as newlyweds and always know you have a home here at Running Deer. Cheers to a happy and healthy future!

    The perfect day

    My wedding was at Running Deer this month, and everything was amazing! Staff were helpful, knowledgeable and went above and beyond to make sure the day ran smoothly. Heather D. was great on the day of the wedding, making sure that we had everything we needed to enjoy the night! Planning and coordinating with Kate G. leading up to the wedding went perfectly. She's so organized, kind and easy to work with! Definitely recommend Running Deer!

    Running Deer Golf Club by Ron Jaworski Weddings's reply:

    Danielle- What a night that was! It warms our hearts to know that Heather, Kate, and our staff were able to give you the day you deserve and have always dreamed of. Best wishes to you and Sam on your new life adventure together!

Private Events Director

Meet Miranda, the Private Events Director at Running Deer Golf Club and Seven Tap-Tavern

Miranda graduated from Bloomsburg University & studied business administration/management.

During her time working for a private health club in Arizona, she assisted the public in hosting social events & weddings, despite their lack of equipment, they never turned down an event and always found a way to make it work! This guided her to fall more in love with the industry and she never looked back!

Miranda鈥檚 favorite part of each wedding day is after the ceremony! It鈥檚 completely natural before the ceremony to have nervous energy鈥 so to see the relief wash over their faces when they take their first sip of champagne is priceless!

One fun fact about Miranda is that she is the queen of odd jobs! From selling hot dogs off of the back of a truck at a gas station to
tracking the first-serve percentage for a professional women鈥檚 tennis tournament for live television鈥very experience has molded her!

When she鈥檚 not at her venue, she is playing with her beautiful children who are 12 and 8 years old! They are such precious moments鈥efore she knows it鈥he will be planning their weddings!

Kaitlyn  Gallo
Kaitlyn Gallo
Private Events Manager

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鈥檚 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 a
nd love story right before they make it official!

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

Jessica Nixholm
Jessica Nixholm
Wedding Coordinator

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鈥檚 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.

鈥淚t 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.鈥

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!
