    Great Experience

    This was only the second place I visited, but I left in tears of happiness. Ann Marie is so friendly and not pushy at all! Also, the grounds are beautiful, bridal suite is big, and centrally located close to the parkway. I am looking forward to a beautiful day.

    We fell in love with Shackamaxon the moment we saw it! We both wanted a beautiful golf course venue for our reception and just knew the Shack was the perfect place to celebrate our marriage! The entire team at Shackamaxon is there to make sure your wedding day is the perfect day. Robin was amazing at coordinating all the little details at putting our reception together and making the room look beautiful! I had a lot of little things decor wise and she did such a wonderful job putting it all together and I truly appreciated it! When we arrived after the ceremony, we all got to hop in golf carts and ride around the golf course to take the most beautiful pictures with our bridal party. Cocktail hour was in the grill room and outside patio and all our guests raved about it! The seafood bar was a big hit! Rakesh and the catering team at Shackamaxon were amazing and did such a great job all night - all our guests were so impressed with everything! Shackamaxon was our number one choice for our wedding day and gave us the wedding of our dreams - and more! We both could not be more thankful! Highly recommended this venue!

    Medina Wedding

    My wedding on June 4, 2022 was the absolute BEST!!! Kathy & Cesar and the entire Shackamaxon staff was top notch! So attentive, organized and amazing! The food was great, the atmosphere was perfect and the set up was outstanding! All staff (especially Kathy, Cesar and Kaitlin the bridal attendant) were PHENOMENAL! After planning and stressing for 2 years, Shackamaxon owners did a great job with this hiring this new events/catering team and I look forward to future parties and events hosted at the Shack!
