Absolutely breathtaking property with an unbelievably accommodating staff and planning team!
We may be a little biased, but Deerfield is the best wedding venue and exceeded all expectations for our wedding day. We looked at other luxury venues in the DE / PA area, and none of them compared with Deerfield. Deerfield offers a completely customizable wedding experience that allows you to select everything from the food and beverages selection, linens, seating arrangement, timeline and much more. Not to mention, the package comes with a remarkable wedding planner and day of coordinators (we especially want to thank Angela, Mike, Carmen and Jeff for making our wedding day certainly a day to remember).
We had our wedding reception at Deerfield on September 21, 2019. The ballroom at Deerfield is breathtaking! It is perfectly laid out with a large dance floor in the center. The ballroom has large windows on every wall which sets the stage for an even more romantic setting. Not to mention there is access to the perfectly kempt greens and a porch with a waterfall (which makes for a very romantic photo setting).
Instead, we want to focus this review on the unbelievable staff at Deerfield who were professional and executed everything flawlessly through the entire planning process and on our actual wedding day/night. You can tell the moment that you start planning a wedding with the Deerfield team that they have done it before and that you are in great hands. You never sense an ounce of stress or panic in their team, even when you are stressing as you come down to crunch time!
The event planning team, and we worked with Angela and Jeff in particular, are able to take all your different thoughts and ideas and construct them into a perfect vision for your wedding day. And most importantly, they are not afraid to add in their own ideas or to tell you if one of your ideas may not be the best fit for your wedding day. They are not there to just say “yes” to you, they are there to ensure that your wedding goes as smooth as possible.
The day-of event team, we worked with Carmen and Mike, are a well-oiled machine. We had not met with them until the week of our wedding, but a day or two is all they needed to make sure they understood the plan that we had laid out with Angela and to get their staff to execute that plan to perfection. When we went to check on the ballroom during our cocktail hour, we were left speechless by how elegant the place was. Throughout the night, they handled the coordination with our vendors and made sure that we kept to our timeline – which is harder to do than we ever could have imagined!
And they treat you like royalty. There was one point in the night that my husband swears he had simply thought about grabbing a gin & tonic from the bar and before he could even finish the thought Mike tapped him on the shoulder and had a gin & tonic for him. They make sure that all our guests are taken care of and they do it without being in the way or even being noticed – they are like wedding ninjas!
And in case you feel like it’s just a business to them and you are just a number – we went back there for brunch in November (which we highly recommend) and Mike, Carmen, and Jeff (the general manager) all recognized us right away and took the time to catch up with us about our wedding, honeymoon, etc. They remembered specific people and details from the evening and from our conversations that we would have never expected them to remember. It really made us feel special and made us feel like part of the family at Deerfield.
We highly recommend Deerfield for your wedding or really any event. A beautiful venue with a team of true professionals in every sense of the word.Sent on 01/20/2020
Deerfield's reply:Kendra & Dylan: Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with Deerfield and our wedding team. Can we steal the phrase "wedding ninjas" from you? We love that!

My fiancé and I toured this venue and it was an amazing experience. They offered us a sneak peak of the venue and offered us wine or champagne the moment we came through the door. I really appreciated their hospitality and were thinking about booking them in the spring.😀Sent on 11/26/2019
Deerfield's reply:Hello Rochelle! Thank you for the compliment, we take great price in a high level of service. We hope to welcome you in the Spring for your wedding. If there is anything keeping us from being your first choice, we welcome the opportunity to address it!

Great wedding venue!
I would highly recommend Deerfield for a wedding venue! The staff was easy to get a hold of during the wedding planning process by phone and email. The day of, the bride had her own bridal attendant who was absolutely amazing and went above and beyond her job. The catering staff were extremely attentive to a guest with Celiac's. Also, all coordinators the day off asked the bride, groom, and close family members if anything was needed throughout the night!Sent on 12/14/2019
Deerfield's reply:Emily & Vince: Thank you for the great review! We are thrilled that you felt well taken care of, and look forward to welcoming you back to Deerfield in the future!

Amazing experience 10/10
The staff at Deerfield was very accommodating and helpful throughout the entire wedding planning process. To taste testing, promptly responding to emails, meeting to review all of the details the week before the wedding, to setting up the event with personal items/touches, everything was perfect. We had many positive comments from guests who attended the wedding including the quality of the food, service of the bar tenders, as well as the servers and overall atmosphere. We would 100% recommend this venue and overall had an amazing experience.Sent on 12/31/2019

The most perfect wedding venue!
This venue is so stunning inside and out! From the outdoor patio space, to the cocktail hour in the atrium and the beautiful ballroom, Deerfield is very classy and elegant. Our guests couldn't stop raving about how nice it was.
My husband and I had our wedding reception at Deerfield on October 11th and it couldn't have been more perfect. We worked with Angela throughout the planning process and she was AMAZING. She understood exactly what we wanted and made everything so easy, and was just overall a pleasure to work with! :) The staff on the wedding day were all so professional and easy going and our guests and wedding party couldn't say enough positive things about the overall atmosphere.
Carmen was our banquet supervisor and she did a BEAUTIFUL job setting up all of the decorations and coordinating the flow of the wedding. Our bridal attendant Gabby was the sweetest and made sure that my bridesmaids and I had all that we needed throughout the day.

Best Night Ever!
My husband and I had our wedding reception at Deerfield August 2019. From our initial walkthrough we knew this was the place for us. The large windows, ballroom & atrium for cocktail hour, and outdoor space are stunning! Angela was our wedding coordinator and she was always very responsive. She was also very personal and made sure you were doing ok in the planning process. Deerfield exceeded our expectations! Everything was perfect! The night went flawlessly. We even did a bubble machine exit at the end of the night and last minute I realized the machine need to be plugged in and did not run on battery. The staff at Deerfield said it was not an issue and even ran an extension cord for us to use it! They go above and beyond here!
We would like to thank the all of the staff at Deerfield who made our wedding reception the best night ever especially Angela, Michael, JD and Michelle. Thank you!Sent on 08/24/2019

As a Wedding Planner I needed to find an affordable venue that would meet all of my clients requirements, from the moment the bride and groom step inside the venue they knew they had found the it! Deerfield was perfect! a beautiful ball room surrounded by windows of the beautiful golf course, the food was delicious, the service was one of the best I have found, the team that was there to help me were incredibly efficient, excellent attitude and went above and beyond to make sure I had everything I needed to do my job, I created the decor, flowers, backdrop and centerpieces, they help me greatly through the process. I will think of them for future weddings and will recommend them 100%, if you need a beautiful venue, excellent food, service and great value, look no further.Sent on 03/03/2020

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!Sent on 07/08/2019
Deerfield's reply:Ninette & Joe: Thank you for the lovely review, and for trusting Deerfield with your wedding! We are thrilled that your experience from beginning to end with our team was amazing, and we can't wait to see your photos!

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!Sent on 04/03/2019

Beautiful Wedding Venue, Excellent Service & Food!
My husband and I held our wedding reception at Deerfield on 5/4/2019. I could not be more pleased with how our day went. Everything went smoothly, all thanks to their phenominal staff. We were able to bring all of our decorations and signs to them a few days before, and they set it all up for us; it was a huge relief to us that they did this for us! Our managers for the day, JD and Michael, were wonderful and went over every detail with us at our final appointment. They also made sure that we got to eat despite the busy day, and that my handicapped sister was comfortable. I can't thank them enough for their impeccable service! The scenery around the venue is breathtaking, and is a beautiful backdrop for unforgettable photos. The food was also excellent (I highly recommend the bacon wrapped filet!) and I have heard nothing but great comments from our guests. Deerfield was very accommodating to all of our requests and definitely exceeded our expectations; they truly went above and beyond to make sure everything went as planned and to our satisfaction. I would highly recommend Deerfield if you are looking for a wedding venue in Delaware.Sent on 08/08/2019

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!Sent on 07/01/2019
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!
Deerfield's reply:Alana & John: Thank you for the lovely review. We are thrilled to have made your dreams come true and to have saved the day!

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!)Sent on 12/12/2018

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!Sent on 10/23/2018
