    Wonderful Wedding Day at Germantown Cricket Club

    Our wedding night at Germantown Cricket Club was truly magical. We had several out of town guests who were dazzled by the Germantown Cricket Club space, history, and presence. Everything from the beautiful ballroom, to the picturesque views of the tennis courts, to the warm and romantic candlelit atmosphere was all beyond what we could have imagined.

    We worked with Janet to have two signature cocktails which the staff pulled off beautifully! But the food was what really blew people away. Everything was spectacular!! Our guests were raving about the food all night and days after. We worked with Janet to create a personal and decadent menu for both the cocktail hour and the dinner reception and we were so thrilled with how it all came together. So many many people also commented on how friendly the waitstaff was…. They were amazing! Everyone was so professional and on top of everything. All of our wants were anticipated by Janet and her team. They truly do a tremendous job of making sure every detail is perfect and that every guest is happy . Janet and Devon were always there when we needed.

    Leading up to the event, Janet does an excellent job of listening to what you want but also sharing advice in a really helpful way. She has so much experience at Germantown and elsewhere so her perspective is so valuable. And most importantly, Janet helped to keep things fun! When we were feeling stressed or overwhelmed, she has a way of making you know they've got everything under control and that this is supposed to be a fun and joyous day! The Germantown staff take care of everything so that you can truly just be present and enjoy a wonderful celebration. From the bottom of our hearts, we are so happy to have had our wedding day Germantown Cricket Club.

    GCC is a Gem!

    I don't know if there are adequate words to express how much we appreciate all GCC did to make our daughter's day so spectacular! The evening was absolutely perfect (if only it wasn't such a blur to us!)

    The entire team did not miss a beat. People are still raving about the food (in particular the duck wraps and the bacon wrapped dates!), the club is dazzling with all of its renovations (there were several former members in attendance who couldn't believe their eyes!), and the staff were so kind and attentive.

    Janet, in particular took such good care of us. We felt like royalty being able to dress in the bridal suite, and she made sure we ate (and drank!) enough. She was unflappable as we made last minute seating changes. And she helped make sure that not a single detail was overlooked.

    Devon and Ed also went above and beyond to be sure that every detail was perfect. Devon my fashion consultant and also making the good save on the candle lighting set up. Plus all the other little things that I know they did behind the scenes--even turning over ever rock to try to find that Aperol.

    There were many more involved in our special night--they each deserve our kudos for their great professionalism, kindness and high attention to detail service.

    Exceeded our expectations!

    We could not have chosen a better place to celebrate our daughter's wedding than the Germantown Cricket Club! The food was phenomenal, service exceptional and the newly renovated interior exquisite. Our guests were able to enjoy their cocktails in the bar area, expansive first floor and even on the porch outside with ample seating everywhere. The expansive outdoor field was an ideal place for memorable pictures to be taken. The newly renovated ballroom was exquisite and we particularly liked the fact that they had a stage for the band we hired. The food from the crudite to the dessert plate was phenomenal. Everyone loved either the salmon or tender short ribs that were served. I cannot say enough about GCC and Janet whose enthusiasm was a major factor in our decision as well. The renovations they recently completed were an added bonus! Everything from the first floor cocktail area to the restrooms to the grand ballroom make it look like a 5 star hotel while maintaining it's character that is unique as well. It exceeded my expectations!
