Every couple wants their magical day, one to top all expectations that one could dream of for their wedding. Deerfield has done just that.
Andrew and I have been planning our wedding for 19 months. From the beginning, Angela has been nothing but amazing; answering my million and one questions and meeting with us several times to make us feel more comfortable of how our day will look and feel like. Angela was more than helpful with always a smile on her face. As we were nearing the last 6 exciting months before our wedding, we thought this is when the ball starts rolling. Where we go for food tastings, dress and suit fittings, ceremony meetings for the music and details, looking at flower arrangements and so much more. However the world had different plans; the pandemic. Nothing is more stressful than trying to plan a wedding let alone planning a wedding during a pandemic. Andrew and I's stress levels went through the roof but trying to stay as positive as possible. Angela put our minds at ease with countless conversations about what to expect with any changes, updates and state guidelines making sure we were clear on what our day will look like and how Deerfield will do whatever it took to make our day magical.
Though many weddings decided to postpone or cancel their weddings, Andrew and I made the decision to move forward with everything we have planned with the same date. Each day, week and month that passed seemed to get easier as Deerfield and Angela made sure that we were going to have the perfect day. Every phone call, meeting and detail appointment only made us more excited to share our big day with Angela, Michael and the Deerfield Staff.
I will be the first to tell anyone I am very organized, particular and have a very high expectation of how I like things to look like. Deerfield went over and beyond to make our vision come to life. From making sure our guests felt comfortable and safe with plenty of space at cocktail hour to Deerfield's staff making sure every thing was clean, making ourselves and every guest feel like they were their number one priority to making sure all state guidelines were being followed to every detail that we wanted and planned happened on our big day.
We will never forget walking into the most beautiful ballroom before our guests to see our vision come to life. We were blown away at how the Deerfield Staff put everything in place and really wowed us and our guests. Every staff member was polite and respectful, they were all eager to make sure we were taken care of as the bride and groom but made every guest have such an amazing time. There was not one moment that we felt like we were having a wedding in a pandemic, we felt like all you could feel and see was love and happiness. The Deerfield staff, Angela and Michael wasn't just part of any amazing venue but felt like part of our family. They were as happy for us as any of our guests were that day.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our dream wedding come true! A special thanks to Angela for helping us everyday up until our wedding day and to Michael who made sure everything was perfect and we were taken care of on our wedding day. Deerfield will always have a special place in our hearts. Thank you again for making, October 17th 2020, the best wedding of the year!Sent on 01/19/2021
Deerfield's reply:Kirsten & Andrew: THANK YOU for taking the time to share your Deerfield experience and for the lovely review! We are thrilled that your wedding day was as magical as you imagined, and that our team took great care of you. Your photos show the love shared that day!

August Deerfield Wedding
I cannot speak highly enough about Deerfield and their team! We were wowed from our first tour to the very end of our wedding reception. I am an event planner and knew that not only did I want a beautiful reception venue, but also a team of staff who I knew would make our wedding planning process and day-of stress free. Deerfield truly made our experience so joyful, fun, and stress free! They kept in frequent communication in the months leading up to our wedding and promptly answered every question and concern I had. Our reception could not have been executed more perfectly! They delivered on every detail, even the most minor touches were attended to exactly as we had discussed! The wedding team, chefs, table attendants, everyone had top notch customer service skills- we were blown away! I truly cannot sing their praises highly enough, not only is Deerfield an absolute dream come true reception venue, their team will make your wedding process so easy and enjoyable!Sent on 01/19/2021

We are thrilled that you found your experience to be joyful and fun, and loved seeing your photos!

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!

We finally had out big day and I couldnt be more thankful to have had it at Deerfield! The grounds were immaculate and made for amazing pictures and back drop. Mike and his team did everything and beyond what we could have expected or needed. Someone was always checking on us to see if we needed anything. They care of every single detail, and we could not be more thankful for his assistance. Guests raved about the food, so props to the chefs. We had an absolutely amazing day and we thank every single person at Deerfield that played a role in making our wedding perfection. Thankful for Angela and all her hard work leading up to the wedding. We love Deerfield and could not have picked a better venue.Sent on 09/15/2020

Perfect Wedding Planned in 3 Weeks Thanks to Deerfield
My (now) husband and I got engaged in July 2019. We were ahead of the game with all of our planning and we were so very excited! Then COVID-19 hit. Our original venue required we cut our 150 guest count - which was fine, especially because the count went from 80 to 100 people in a month. Unfortunately, in late November, our venue informed us that we were only able to have our ceremony - no food, no dancing.
My (now) mother and father-in-law sat us down on Thanksgiving and informed us that they had been in touch with Deerfield and we could have a mini-wedding on our original date, if that was something we were interested in.
We didn't hesitate to say yes.
In 3 weeks, with the help of Alex and Michael, who are absolutely WONDERFUL, our perfect wedding was planned. Despite only having 30 guests which included mostly of our family and bridal party, it was the best day of my life.
My husband and I have gone to several events at Deerfield - weddings, baby shower, brunch - and they, as per usual, did not let us down. No one would ever know that our wedding was planned in 3 weeks. It was everything I could have asked for and then some.Sent on 01/11/2021
Deerfield's reply:Samantha & Cameron: Thank you for the kind words. We are so thrilled that during these tough times, Deerfield was able to provide you and your family with a happy wedding memory! We look forward to welcoming you all back for many future happy occasions!

Blown away by Deerfield
Wedding planning during a global pandemic is far from enjoyable. BUT Lizette and the Deerfield team were absolutely amazing to work with. From the beginning, Lizette was patient and understanding. She was helpful as details started to shift. She made sure that we were excited despite the damper that COVID put on things. And then the wedding. WOW. Jeff, Mike, and the Deerfield staff are top notch, world class, absolutely phenomenal. The set up was wonderful - our guests were able to enjoy themselves while still keeping safe. Social distancing procedures were put in place, but you could hardly even tell that things were different (except for the obvious masks... but even with masks, it was the best day of our lives)! Our drinks were never empty, and for sure, our hearts were full. Our day went off without a hitch and we cannot thank Deerfield enough. Stop looking at other venues -- go with Deerfield. You won't regret it.Sent on 12/18/2020
Deerfield's reply:Megan & Jerry: Thank you for choosing Deerfield, and for the lovely note! We know the planning process and the wedding wasn't what you had originally planned...but we are thrilled that you were happy with the way our team took care of you and your guests! We look forward to welcoming you and your family back to Deerfield for many other special events!

Best day ever!
Deerfield was incredible & beautiful! We had our wedding & reception there in November 2020. It was everything we ever dreamed of and more. During COVID - the staff enforced safety & compliance with masks. We felt so special and listened to during the entire experience and recommend this venue to everyone who is getting married soon!Sent on 01/11/2021

wonderul experience for our winter wedding!
In looking for a wedding venue for our January 2020 wedding, it was clear that Deerfield checked every box. We were so pleased with the whole team we worked with, from Angela leading up to our big day to our day of team. They made it effortlessly easy, and we were catered to every step of the way. The team did such a wonderful job executing the day of, Gabby was a wonderful bridal assistant and always made sure we were staying on track, had time to eat, and of course that our drinks were full!

Me and my current wife were both scared that we were not going to be able to get married with everything going on in the world.

Everything you want, you got it! Best venue EVER!
Planning a wedding in a pandemic was hard enough, but planning a wedding with Deerfield made it SO easy! My coordinator Angela was so flexible, organized, always communicated, and went above and beyond for anything I asked. The staff make you feel like family and not only is the food, service, and venue perfect and beautiful but the people and staff make you feel so welcome. I highly recommend having your wedding or special event here. I promise it’ll be one to remember!

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!

Best Day Ever!
Deerfield was exactly what we imagined when thinking about our wedding. We originally planned to have our wedding in May 2020 and had to postpone it to August 2020 due to COVID.
When we were initially searching for a venue there were certain elements Deerfield had which grabbed our attention but the one which really sold the venue to us was Angela. Angela was a dream to work with throughout the whole planning process. She made it all feel easy even with covid being thrown at us a few months before the wedding. She was very flexible and worked with us on our best options for the wedding with COVID.
Michael, and the rest of the team on the day of the wedding were amazing. We got so many compliments on how nice and professional the staff were.
In terms of the venue itself, there is not much to say, the pictures speak for themselves. We can only echo the previous reviews, the property is beautiful, well maintained, and makes for amazing memories. We received so many compliments how it was one of the prettiest venues they have been to.
We were so happy to have our wedding at Deerfield and wish we could do it all again!Sent on 01/16/2021
Deerfield's reply:Rohan and Karishma: Thank you for the lovely review. We are thrilled that Angela was a dream for you to work with and that the Deerfield team took great care of you on the day of the wedding. We recently received the full album of your digital photos and they are absolutely magnificent!!

The perfect venue for the perfect day
Deerfield made our dream wedding come true. From the initial consultation with Angela through everything COVID threw our way, their flexibility, organization, and ability to manage all of the change and craziness from this year, was beyond impressive. The week before the wedding, we met with the operations team, to go through every minute detail for the day of. There was a lot to manage - every last minute detail, along with a significant amount of dietary restrictions for our guests, and every single ask was executed flawlessly. Michael, Karmen, and Gabby on the operations team were all beyond amazing. For anyone looking for a wedding venue in Delaware, in my opinion, there is no better option than Deerfield. Do not hesitate to contact Angela, Jeff, or any of the other amazing employees at Deerfield. They are professional, responsive, and a joy to work with. What should have been a nightmare process (and sort of was strictly because of COVID), was made 100x easier by Deerfield's amazing team. The only 'downside' is that the night went too fast. We are so grateful! Deerfield is the best of the best!Sent on 10/05/2020
Deerfield's reply:Aliya & Michael: Thank you for the wonderful review! We are thrilled that Deerfield was able to make your dream wedding a reality, and that your hearts hold wonderful memories of a beautiful day! We look forward to welcoming you and your families back to Deerfield for many more special occasions!

Everything You Could Ever Want and More
We are over the moon at the experience we had planning and hosting our wedding with Deerfield. Everything was perfect from start to finish, thanks to Angela and her team. So many of our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever attended. We were kind of nervous about a winter wedding in February, but they made sure it was perfect in every way. From the beautiful landscape of the property to the romantic feel in the ballroom.
Our search started with several of the local hot spots but from tours, to menu items nothing really captured our hearts like Deerfield. We were sold walking through the halls toward the ballroom. The beautiful atrium let in beautiful light and set the ambiance for our cocktail hour, and soft light twinkling through the windows of the ballroom cast a magical feeling for the dinner and dancing, but the Delaware artwork adorning the walls really caught us!
Angela was so patient and knowledgeable through the whole planning process. She handled my indecisiveness and provided guidance when needed like a seasoned pro, and can I just say she is so sweet and caring - just a wonderful human being. And they worked so well with our vendors and
What a beautiful landscape for pictures! When the sun was setting we got so many good shots on the course and in the ballroom with setting sun shining through the windowed room. So perfect and romantic.
Dinner was outstanding - the chef and his crew served perfectly cooked filet, flavorful, tender chicken, and of crispy tasty veggies. Oh and they have AMAZING coffee. The bar was on point, and kept people in drink throughout the evening. We were even surprised with an ice sculpture that turned out to be quite a hit with the guests!
Last but certainly not least, Michael and Ryan were amazing hosts! We were welcomed with open arms to a quiet peaceful suite with a private toast, and area to refresh and collect ourselves. Our table decor had been placed perfectly to create a breathtaking atmosphere upon entry. They kept things moving smoothly throughout the night, attending to us, our parents, and guests as if we were royalty. A special shout out goes to my son's favorite attendant, Gabby, she was so kind to cut his steak for him, and "keep his Shirley Temple's coming."
We were absolutely astonished by our experience with Deerfield and would recommend them to anyone having a wedding or celebratory event. Especially because with all that they offered, the quality and value were better than we found anywhere. Thank you for making our day a beautiful memory.Sent on 08/30/2020

We are so thrilled that you and your guests enjoyed your wedding experience from beginning to end (including the delicious coffee!) and look forward to welcoming you and your families back to celebrate future occasions with Deerfield!

We were extremely pleased with the success of our daughter’s wedding reception that Deerfield hosted on July 4th. Everything was on point including the refreshing cocktail hour with hors d'oeuvres stations, the delicious dinner, the gorgeous facilities, and the attentive staff. We recognize the challenges caused by the pandemic and appreciate all that the Deerfield team did to accommodate us, to create memories for all of our guests, and to keep us safe. Our daughter and son-in-law could not have been happier with their special day as evidenced by the following Facebook comments: "Thanks for the best day ever!" and "WHAT . A . DAY!

Lauren Records · Married on 02/29/2020
We found Deerfield after a disappointing venue fell through in terms of budget. We were hesitant visiting Deerfield and a few other similar venues. When we saw the large ballroom, we were instantly hooked! We loved the space, the amenities, and the staff. Angela was so responsive, she spelled everything out clearly, there were no hidden costs, no surprises and that was such a relief while planning on a budget! Even the day of, everything went off without any issues, the staff was phenomenal! We heard nothing but rave reviews from our guests and we are so grateful to have had our ceremony and reception at Deerfield. Please don’t hesitate to get married here. We would do it again in a heartbeat!Sent on 08/03/2020

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.
