    Gorgeous Venue & Excellent Service!

    My husband and I just got married at Deerfield Golf Club in May 2019 and we absolutely loved it! We had our ceremony outdoors on the Terrace (facing the golf course), our cocktail hour in the Sussex atrium, and our reception in the ballroom. We loved that our guests were able to experience all these different locations as each one provided its own unique beauty. We first saw the venue (and preferred vendors) at the open house. We were initially nervous that our 95 guests would feel lost in the ballroom, but the staff did an excellent job arranging the room to feel intimate and spacious. The professionalism and customer service of all the staff members from the open house all the way through to the wedding day was absolutely exceptional! We mainly corresponded with Angela during the planning phase, and she was very helpful and pleasurable to work with. The food tasting exceeded our expectations with it's extensive and delicious menu. The week of the wedding, the staff was very thorough in going over all of our decorations/set-up instructions. We definitely felt at ease that our wedding day was in good hands and they did a great job pulling it all together on the big day. They even thought to move two pillars with floral arrangements from the outdoor ceremony into the ballroom to accent either side of our sweetheart table - for whatever reason my husband and I hadn't thought of that but they did and it turned out so lovely!! Overall, from the gorgeous venue to the amazing staff and delicious food we could not have asked for a better experience!

    Wonderful beyond words!!

    We just had my daughters bridal shower in the Sussex room. The room itself is gorgeous. Claire was wonderful with ALL my questions. The on-site staff were so helpful and very kind. Our guests raved about the service and food. The management also helped us in our set up (we brought quite a bit of décor for our Tiffany theme) and were present throughout the entire day to help but not at all intrusive. We couldn't have asked for a better venue!

    Deerfield does not disappoint!

    I can’t recommend Deerfield enough for your next event. The staff is so helpful and accommodating- we worked with Claire to set up the event and Lizette was our day of coordinator. We got so many compliments on the food and the beautiful ballroom it was held in! Book Deerfield and you won’t be dissapointed !

    Absolutely Out of this World

    We went to Deerfield concerned it would be out of our budget but the amount of amenities it offered compared to other locations was so impressive! Deerfield and their event staff made my dreams come true for my wedding in Dec 2018. Not only were they the perfect place for a Bride with big dreams and a Type A personality but they accommodated our fun and crazy Bridal Party who wanted to bring ALL of the fun to the dance floor! Their staff saved the day from a ripped bustle and missing florals! Their seasonal decor tied together our classy holiday motif in the most magical way! They absolutely transformed the ballroom into the vision I outlined for them at our walk through the week before!

    They also referred us to two of my favorite Wedding Day vendors! However they didn’t demand that we use them - only promised that we would be promised the same level of service we got from Deerfield and this was certainly true!

    A Dream Wedding!

    I just had my fairytale wedding reception at Deerfield...and I can't recommend them enough. (My sister also got married here...we LOVE this place!)

    We had complicated centerpieces, food and drink selections and so many other random details that Angela and her team worked with us on SO easily. No request felt too big. We decided not to serve alcohol, and I found out later they made cute little non alcoholic drinks for our guests! They stored each separately boxed centerpiece for us the week ahead of time (20 LARGE boxes...). They served chocolate milk just for my cousins. They lit hundreds of candles on our tables...made sure the groom and I actually ate. Honestly one of the most stress free events and gorgeous weddings (yes I know I'm a little biased). My husband and I can't recommend Deerfield enough. (also, your photos here will be BEAUTIFUL. Get on the golf course at sunset!)

    The perfect venue!

    Deerfield was the perfect venue for our wedding day (10/20/18). The staff is so professional and truly cares about making your day perfect! The staff worked great with our vendors to ensure everything was exactly as we wanted it. The pine trees location for our ceremony was perfect and our guests were able to utilize the outdoor patio during cocktail hour. Lizette and Michael made sure the day of ran perfectly and that I (the bride) was stress free! Our bridal attendant Sarah was always right there when we needed something. Angela was there every step of the way during the planning process! Our family and friends had so many amazing things to say! Everything was absolutely perfect!

    The Deerfield is an amazing venue!

    Last week we celebrated our daughters wedding at the Deerfield and it was an unbelievably perfect day. The ballroom is beautiful, the food is delicious, and all of the staff were awesome. My guests were so impressed with this venue. Angela, the sales manager, was always there to guide us and give us advice throughout the entire planning process. Lizette and Michael helped make our day run smooth. The entire staff went over and above to make our day special I highly recommend the Deerfield, you won’t be disappointed.

    I could not have asked for a better experience

    I knew Deerfield was the right choice almost immediately when we were venue-shopping for our wedding, but I was blown away by the level of care and professionalism Deerfield demonstrated. From start to finish every single person was exceptional.

    I want to give a special thanks to Carly. I don't know where they found her, but she was fantastic - attentive, poised and calm. She stayed close whenever either my husband or I needed anything but we never felt crowded or over-served.

    Chef and his entire kitchen team were spectacular. Guests are still raving about the food, and they have said it was the best wedding dinner they've had.

    Lizette and Michael were in the pinnacle of professionalism. Michael asked me a couple of times throughout the night if everything was going well. I could never find a complaint. Lizette was a fantastic ally to have when I needed to be pulled away from overly chatty guests or just needed to eat.

    And from the time I first toured Deerfield to the last Wednesday before the wedding, Angela was been phenomenal. I never had a question unanswered, always felt like I was her only client when I called with small or strange questions. She was incredible, and I have been shouting her and Deerfield's praises from the Main Line Philadelphia.

    My husband and I just had our wedding at Deerfield on April 7, 2018 and I cannot say enough great things. From the start of planning up till the end of our wedding day everything was perfect. They are awesome to work with and extremely accommodating. My husband has severe food allergies and they even made him his own plate of appetizers just for him! They set up my decorations exactly how I wanted everything to be. I mean I could go on and on. I am SO SO SO happy we went with deerfield.

    Deerfield was the most magical venue for our wedding. We live in New York City, but I'm from Delaware (the bride), and we were looking for something classic and elegant and surrounded with green, and wow, did we get it and then some. Deerfield is stunning in every way. The grounds are lush, with so many beautiful spots to take photos outside even during the colder months when your ceremony will be inside, which we loved. The indoor space is expansive, filled with so many perfect areas and so many windows -- from the skylights and floor to ceiling windows in the cocktail area to the fully surrounded by windows ballroom -- just magnificent. I also can't say enough good things about having the small bridal suite for the gals and the bar area for the gents as our home bases, and as a way to keep us separated until the first look! I hope I've captured just how lovely a space this is.
    Now, to the amazing team who made our wedding a dream come true, it is just impossible to thank you. Our point of contact throughout the planning process was Angela, who was with me every step of the way guiding us with her expertise and amazing taste. She had every detail thought through and none were too small to discuss and review. I'm really enormously grateful for the guidance she provided along the way, she was just wonderful. And then, there is David. David is that person we didn't even realize we needed for the wedding and the person we now, looking back, absolutely could not have done it without! He is a magical person and just a tremendous asset to any wedding day, and led a team of incredible humans who made us all feel so at ease, so supported, so looked after. He, Emily and the rest of the Deerfield team just made our day feel like it just took off, even though it was without a doubt their hard work behind the scenes that made it go so beautifully. I could keep gushing, but instead I'll end by saying that our wedding was perfect, and Deerfield just the perfect venue!
