    May Wedding at Germantown Cricket Club

    We are so glad we had our wedding at Germantown. The historic beauty, location, and ease made our weekend just amazing. Working with Sheralda and Mr. Don to plan our ceremony, reception, and Sunday Brunch was pain free. Sheralda was flexible and made all of our ideas a reality. The day of went so smoothly. We absolutely could not be happier, and definitely recommend this venue for your wedding!!

    My Husband and I chose the Germantown Cricket Club as our wedding reception venue for its historical old-world charm and gorgeous grounds. And boy did she shine with the added English garden florals, black tie attire, and live music flowing through the open-air porches. But this review really is intended to highlight Chris, the director of catering and his staff. Our wedding was INCREDIBLE because of them. Chris worked his tail off to ensure everything was perfect. His staff kept our guests pampered while laughing and dancing right along side them. We can't count the times we've been told by someone it was the best affair they've ever attended. The GCC is truly a gem, and I'm so happy with how seamless and enjoyable Chris made the planning process.

    I cannot say enough about how happy my husband and I are with our wedding experience at the Germantown Cricket Club. From the start we knew we found a truly amazing venue for our special day. The ambiance was exactly what we were looking for, but it was the staff at GCC who had the largest role in solidifying our decision and in ultimately helping to make our day unforgettable.

    Chris Carnes, the catering manager, was the first person we were in contact with at GCC. His kindness, flexibility and knowledge of the business went far beyond what we experienced with many of the 20 other venues we visited and spoke with. Chris made the decision of going with the GCC very easy and is truly the reason our experience was so exceptional. He listened to all of our needs and was there to guide us through many wedding decisions, big or small, and always being mindful of our budget. He was well organized and really took a “get it done” attitude when it came to our planning requests.

    In addition to our wonderful experience with Chris, the food at the GCC was exquisite. I’ve received so many compliments on the cocktail hour and our dinner selections (crab cakes and filet). GCC’s chef, Chef Ted, is truly a master of his art. I can honestly say I’m a bride who took the time to sit and eat her meal. It was too delicious to pass on.

    Many thanks to Chris, Chef Ted, Don and the rest of the staff at GCC who helped us throughout our wedding weekend. The compliments we have received from our guests should all really be directed to you.
