When my husband and I were searching for a reception venue, Running Deer was our first spot to check out. We walked into the venue, and we KNEW that this was where we wanted our reception to be. We fell in love with the rustic, yet modern look, and loved how cozy the room felt. We had seen pictures online, but they didn't do the place justice!
We met with Heather on our first meeting and she took us on a tour, answered any and all questions, and was very honest and open when it came to prices and such. She is incredible! Being a typical bride, in my planning months I emailed Heather COUNTLESS times with minor (silly) questions, and she responded back to each and every one in a friendly way and never made me feel like I was bothering her.
When it came to the big day, I can't even describe how PERFECT everything was! The staff scheduled that night set everything up exactly how I asked, and the room was absolutely breathtaking. We met our matre d, Angel, before the start of the reception. She was so friendly and willing to do anything for my husband and myself. Before our bridal party was announced, she even ran back to the bridal suite and grabbed ALL of my bridal party's flowers! She also made sure we ate and were taken are of the entire night.
Running Deer went above and beyond to exceed any expectations I could have ever had about my wedding day. The staff, the actual room, the food, the service... it was all EXCEPTIONAL!
Thank you for the kind words Sherry! You planned a gorgeous winter wonderland wedding and we are so happy you chose Running Deer to be a part of it!
We just had our wedding here on 3/3/18. I don’t think I can fully explain how incredible it was! Olivia and Kaitlyn were so helpful for all the planning. The venue itself is so beautiful. The grounds are gorgeous. The food was amazing. I’ve had people texting me for two days telling me how delicious everything was. We also had what they call a “wedding concierge” the day of the wedding. Her name was Heather, and I’d refer to her as an angel. She handled everything! From making sure we got where we needed to on time, to wiping cake off of my face. We could not have made it through the days without her. I also love that everything can be done in one spot. They have a gorgeous bridal suite and grooms suite to get ready in, place for ceremony, reception and even an after party! I would recommend this place to anyone looking to get married. They truly made my vision and all our dreams come true!
Thank you so much for your review, Sheena! We are so happy we got to be apart of your special day! You made a beautiful bride! Wishing you and Rob a lifetime of happiness!!
My husband and I got married on NYE at Running Deer! Olivia and Kaitlyn were truly amazing from the moment that we decided on Running Deer! Heather made our day absolutely amazing! She took care of everything we needed or asked for! She made our night perfect! I cannot speak higher about the food and the professionalism of the staff here!

Thank you Kristine! We are so happy you chose to have your wedding here. We enjoyed working with you and Anel and wish you all the best! Congrats again!!
An absolutely beautiful venue with an incredibly helpful staff! Both Olivia and Kaitlyn helped me coordinate my wedding and made the process so easy. Our guests raved about how good the food was too! We got some beautiful pictures outside (even in December). Running Deer was the right decision for our venue no doubt!
Thank you Rebecca for the review! We are so happy we got to be a party of your wedding. You looked absolutely stunning! We can't wait to see pictures. Congrats again!
Our wedding 12.9.17 and I just want to re love it ALL! Everything was amazing from the beginning. Olivia and the rest of the staff were so professional and helpful from beginning to end. The decorations we brought looked amazing and exactly how we explained we wanted them! The food was delicious and everyone else thought so as well! Running deer is beautiful and made our winter wonderland wedding a reality! Heather who attended to my husband and I all night was amazing! She made sure we ate, we always had a drink... if we needed anything she was there!! They made planning the wedding a breeze! Everything was so perfect. There are not enough words to describe how magical our night was! Thank you running deer!!!
They were Perfect with accommodationing everything we wanted and needed. Our concierge, Heather, was amazing through the whole day making sure things were just perfect. Olivia and Kaitlyn were such an amazing help through the planning and execution process and I can’t thank these ladies enough for all they did for us to make the day wonderful!
Thank you Jamie! We are so happy we got to be a part of your special day. You were such a stunning bride! Congrats again!
My husband and I got married on October 20, 2017. Words can not begin to describe how wonderful Running Deer Golf Club is. From the reception room to the ceremony pergola to the staff. They went above and beyond every expectation we had for our big day! When we began planning our wedding, we checked out 13 different venues. Some before Running Deer and some even after. We decided to go back because we knew it was something special and it most definitely was! Olivia is wonderful to work with. She is the sweetest and quick to respond with any questions! Krista and Kaitlyn were wonderful to work with as well. They made planning the wedding relaxed and enjoyable. The day of our wedding we were honored to have to Krista as our concierge. SHE WAS AMAZING. She was with us and our family every step of the way. Her generosity and work ethics helped calm my nervous. She made sure we ate, had drinks and made sure we got to try our hors d'oeuvres and desserts. If you are looking for a perfect place to have your wedding, Running Deer is it! We built amazing relationships with the staff, wedding coordinators, and general manager! We will continue to visit Running Deer for lunch just so we can stop by to see the wonderful staff and be reminded of our beautiful wedding day!
Angela, we are so honored you chose to have your wedding with us. We feel super lucky to get to know amazing couples like you and Kevin! Congrats again! We'll see you in our Tavern soon for a yard bird :)
It was a pleasure to work with Olivia for the planning, and the buffet, drink, and table service staff was great. The food and setup was excellent (and the chocolate room is amazing!) Last but certainly not least, Heather was our coordinator during the event and was on point as soon as we met her that morning all the way until we walked out the door that night and made the whole thing completely effortless for us. It was the best we could have hoped for and then some!
Thank you for the review Johnna! It was an absolutely joy working with you and Gino! We're lucky to have been a part of your big day!
Our wedding was held on Friday, September 8. We had looked at a few places but decided on Running Deer for its location, value, and very friendly staff. We had an amazing wedding from start to finish. Thank you and kudos to Angel, our Angel as she took care of us like family. All of the staff were super and very professional. I would highly recommend Running Deer as the perfect venue for any occasion. Rick & Shannon Tighe III
Shannon, thank you for taking the time to review us! It was a pleasure being a part of you and Rick's special day! Wishing you all the best!
Beautiful venue. Olivia is so helpful and kind, she responds very quickly and answers all questions and gives alternatives. Can't wait for our wedding here!
Thank you! We can't wait either!
I'm so happy we found Running Deer for our wedding day. Olivia, Krista, Angel, and the rest of the staff were awesome! We had to make a game time decision to have the ceremony and cocktail hour outside or inside due to rain in the forecast. Luckily we were able to have our ceremony outside. At the last minute, it started it thunder, and the entire RD crew moved the cocktail hour (that was already setup) inside within a matter of minutes. It was great to be able to get ready in the suites, have the ceremony, and the reception all in one space. The food and service went beyond expectations. I would highly recommend Running Deer to anyone looking to have an amazing wedding.
Lindsay, thank you for the kind words and review! We truly appreciate it. Even though we had to make that game time decision for cocktail hour, the outdoor ceremony was absolutely stunning! It was a pleasure working with you. Congrats again!
I can't thank the Running Deer team enough for such an amazing wedding experience. From the day we met with Olivia, she was so attentive and made the planning part a breeze. The more we got into the planning process, the more people we met. They did not disappoint as well. Everyone got back to every email and were so accommodating and friendly. They answered every question that I had and did everything in their power to make what I wanted happen. Everything was flawless from the day we booked with them. No one skipped a beat. The day of was nothing short of that as well. From the moment we walked into the bridal suite, Angel was there to help us with anything we needed. Guests still are talking about how delicious the food was and how wonderful the reception was. I would recommend Running Deer for any event!! Thank you again!!
Lauren, we want to thank YOU! Thank you for choosing to have your wedding at Running Deer! It was an honor hosting your wedding and truly was a pleasure working with you throughout the planning. Wishing you and Kyle a lifetime of happiness!
From the moment we booked a venue tour, to the last seconds of our wedding day, Running Deer was nothing short of amazing. They went above and beyond to help us have the wedding of our dreams. Not only is the venue itself beautiful, but the event planning team is amazing! They were always quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had while planning and they always made us feel like a priority. Everyone told me planning a wedding was a lot of work and really time consuming, but when you work with a team like the one at Running Deer, wedding planning is a breeze! I would highly recommend Running Deer to anyone and everyone!!
Thank you Sara! It truly was a pleasure getting to know you through the planning! Congrats again! We wish you and Mike all the best!
Where to even begin! From start to finish, the staff at Running Deer was absolutely amazing! Olivia and Samantha were the sweetest and answered any and all emails and questions promptly. They were both so helpful and you can tell they both truly just want their brides and grooms to have the best day ever. When there was a misunderstanding about a few things, they were quick to rectify so we didn't even have time to stress about it. They gave email reminders about due dates for payments, which was very helpful as well. They both just made the entire planning period extremely smooth. I felt like we could depend on them for anything!
During our reception, the staff set up exactly how we had envisioned it to look. All of our guests were raving about their service and the FOOD! Everyone felt so taken care of. We had a few guests that couldn't get around that easy and the wait staff took care of it all getting their plates and food (we had a buffet dinner). Our wedding supervisor, Mary Jo was AMAZING! She took such wonderful care of myself, my husband, and our parents. She made sure every aspect of the night (dinner, cake cutting, dances, dessert, etc.) went off without a hitch. She was so so sweet to us!
As for the food- not one complaint. We did a buffet menu and everything was amazing. Our cocktail hour had every appetizer you could possibly want! The crab cakes, prime rib, and the mac & cheese bar were some of our personal favs!
Overall, we feel like we hit the jackpot when it came to wedding venues! We were so incredibly happy with everything and are so thankful we had the RD staff to help us out. We would recommend them to any bride or groom if they are not only looking for a great venue, but also an affordable reception!
Thank you so much Rebecca! We are truly honored you chose to have your wedding at Running Deer and it was a pleasure getting to know you! You planned an absolutely gorgeous affair! Wishing you all the best!
Loved everything about Running Deer! The location was beautiful and the staff there were so easy to work with! Mary Jo was our event coordinator for the day of the wedding- and she handled everything we needed. I can't think of 1 thing that could have been handled better. We worked with Olivia and Sam with all of the details leading up to the wedding and they were excellent! No matter what I asked for they were willing and able to work with us. Food was excellent! Running Deer definitely made our whole wedding perfect!
Thank you for the kind words Krystyna! It was truly a pleasure helping you bring your dream wedding to life! Wishing you all the best!
We had an excellent experience with Running Deer! Our venue liaison Olivia made the planning process seamless and the day-of all staff was extremely professional and accommodating. Food was great, it was an absolute blast, and I would highly recommend RD for those looking!
I had the best experience as a bride at Running Deer. Everything was smooth sailing and there was nothing out of place. People say something will go wrong that night but honestly everything was perfect in exactly the right spot. I am still hearing about how great the food was that night and how beautiful the room was decorated! The staff was helpful from beginning to end!
Thank you for the kind words Lori! It was an honor being able to bring your dream wedding to life!
We cannot say enough about Running Deer!! We were married on site on Sept 16, 2016 and everything was perfect!! Heather, Olivia and Samantha were so easy to work with. They replied quickly to any questions that we had and when one wasn't available the others would be sure to reply almost immediately! MaryJo was our go to person on our wedding day and she was there for us every step of the way! She made sure we had everything we needed and helped me with getting dressed and even brought us food and drinks during our pictures and made sure we had anything and everything we needed. She was AMAZING!!!! All of our guests that we spoke to said they loved the food and the BEAUTIFUL venue! Look no further if you're trying to find a venue. This was without a doubt one of the best choices we made and worth every, single penny! Thank you so much to all of the staff at Running Deer for truly making our wedding day the most perfect day ever!!
Thank you Rose! We are so honored to have shared in your special day with you! We truly enjoyed getting to know you and Tony through these years of planning! Best wishes and congrats again!
When my daughter and I came to Running Deer for a bridal show, the moment we stepped in we knew that it was the venue. The large windows with spot lighting was beautiful. And the food. Delicious. We booked it right away a year and a half because they book up very fast. We met with Olivia frequently discussing the menu and decor. I did make frequent calls or changes but Olivia was always welcoming on the phone to answer them! On my daughter's wedding day, things went so perfect. Olivia was there to greet us as did the staff. We were waited on downstairs while waiting for our entrance. They did bring us down drinks and food from the cocktail hour. Mary Jo was fantastic directing us where to go and when. As we were announced out into the ballroom, the room took my breath away. Absolutely stunning is all I can describe. Everything was how my daughter envisioned. The tables were gorgeous. They also added little touches that made it even more special. I cant thank Running Deer and staff for making my daughters wedding a dream come true! Best place to have a wedding!
Thank you Marla! We are so honored to have brought Alyssa's dream wedding to life! It truly was a pleasure working with and getting to know you both!
When my now husband and I were searching for a venue, I don't even remember how we came across Running Deer, but we're so thankful we did. Going into the tour, we had no idea what to expect, but were totally blown away by this place. I really wanted a rustic wedding and my husband wanted something more traditional; this place fit both our wants perfectly. It's secluded, so you have that quiet, rustic charm, but since it's on a golf course, it has that modern, yet traditional feeling as well. After our first meeting at RD, we knew this was our place. Through out the wedding planning, Olivia was so amazing at responding to all my questions and e-mails. My husband and I already loved the venue, but after the wedding, I think we loved it a million times more. Not only is the venue beautiful - the staff is beyond incredible. Both our families and our guests, we blown away by the attentiveness of the staff. Samantha was amazing the night before our wedding, when we dropped off so many boxes full of centerpieces and decor. She wrote down all my little notes about what goes where. I had a lot of DIY decor and I was worried about who would set everything up or how it would work out, but they handled everything! And did it better than I could have myself. Olivia and Mary Jo kept us on schedule and Mary Jo was always there giving us food or water - it was so hot and humid that day, and she was so good about giving us cold water when we were all outside sweating at taking pictures! When you're venue shopping, you're looking for THE place that you're going to get married. You always look for details like food and what the environment of the venue is like...but you never really think about the staff and how much of difference they can make on your big day. All of the staff at RD go above and beyond to make sure your day is unforgettable. Our wedding was amazing, and I recommend RD 10000%. From the food (which was mind blowing), to the staff, to the ballroom...absolute perfection!
Julia, we can't thank you enough for the kind words! It truly was a pleasure working with you and Tony and getting to know you both! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of this special time. Wishing you all the best and congrats again!
Running Deer was the perfect choice for our wedding day! Their space offers the perfect amount of room without it being overwhelming! Mary Jo is the Maitre D for the Bride and Groom the day of the wedding and she is AMAZING! Our wedding day was over 100 degrees with the heat index and Mary Jo was right by our sides with water and cool towels as needed. Guests complimented the venue numerous times on their attentiveness upon arrival as they were greeted with cool towels and water for our outdoor ceremony. The cocktail hour and dinner food was fantastic and the staff went above and beyond to make sure everyone was happy. For having an outdoor ceremony, the grounds were very quiet and all could hear the ceremony. Olivia and Samantha were wonderful to work with! They listened to every idea, want and need my husband and I asked for and were extremely quick to answer any concerns.
Morgan, your kind words mean so much to us! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your big day! It was such a pleasure working with you. Congrats again and best wishes!
We loved everything about Running Deer from the get go. My fiancé (now husband) and I looked at each other, when leaving our first look at the venue and said to each other “ok, what’s wrong with it?” Other than being a little bit of a drive for us, we couldn’t find anything wrong! After looking at other venues, we appreciated the upfront pricing. Everything was included and they weren’t trying to nickel and dime you to death over silly things like chair covers. We liked that we would be the only event and wouldn't have to compete with another wedding at the same time. It was really a no brainer to me when they mentioned the mac-n-cheese bar!
It was such a pleasure to work with everyone at Running Deer. I was a busy bride, working full time at a very demanding job. Heather and Olivia were so professional and responsive to all of my questions (and I had a ton!). They made the process so easy and seamless from start to finish.
Every wedding has its hiccups but they made our day go incredibly smooth. On the day of our wedding, it was pouring for hours and stopped only 2 short hours before the ceremony. They had an eye to the sky and were ready to go as soon as it stopped. Our maître d’ , Mary jo and the staff were so calm and collected, it was very reassuring to a nervous bride checking the radar every 5 minutes. Olivia ran our rehearsal so well the ceremony was a breeze.
The reception also went exceptionally smooth. Mary Jo even helped refill the flower girls’ bubble guns when they were having a meltdown about their bubbles running out. She also made sure I got my very own glass of mac-n-cheese, knowing that was my favorite part of the whole deal! I had so many compliments from everything from the room to the food. I don't eat red meat but I had several reports of the filet being the best they’ve ever had at a wedding!
I was extremely happy we chose Running Deer and would choose it a thousand times more. Thank you all for making our day practically perfect!
Thank you! We truly enjoy helping you plan your wedding and can't wait for the big day!
I cannot say enough good things about Running Deer and their staff! From the early planning stages until the last dance on our wedding night, Running Deer was amazing! I e-mailed Olivia what feels like a thousand times; she always responded quickly and was always so helpful with all of my questions. Mary Jo and her team were amazing on our wedding day. She was there to help with absolutely anything myself or my bridal party needed. Olivia, Mary Jo, and the whole RD team really went above and beyond what I could have ever expected! I would highly recommend Running Deer to any future bride and groom. Their venue is absolutely gorgeous and their staff is top notch! You will not be disappointed with your choice!
Thank you Amanda! It was a pleasure working with you to help plan your special day! Wishing you and Bryan all the best!
Fantastic location with excellent staff. People always say how stressful planning a wedding is, but not when you work with people like them. Heather and Olivia were always available to answer questions and really took all the stress out of the planning. They made our day so special and I can't imagine having done it anywhere else. Cannot say enough great things!
Thank you! We had a wonderful time planning your wedding with you! :)
Everyone there was awesome and everything!
Thank you Amanda! xo
