  • I'm not really sure where to even begin, but I'll start with saying that choosing Running Deer was the BEST decision. My wedding was on 2/29/2020 and from the moment we met Miranda, we knew we were in good hands. Everything was so organized from start to finish, I honestly don't think I had to worry about a thing. They took care of all of the fine details and answered every single little question I had in such a timely manner. Kaitlyn was so professional and so sweet, they really make you feel so welcome there. Any last minute changes were handled with such grace, they were the most accommodating group of people I could've ever asked for. Heather is an actual angel on this earth and I feel so lucky to have had her help on my wedding day. One of my bridesmaid's dresses was kind of falling apart even before the ceremony started, and Heather literally pulled out a thread and needle and fixed it for her on the spot. Absolute anything I needed, Heather was there. There wasn't a moment throu... Read more

  • Miranda was a dream! We felt so at ease while we were there. She answered all of my questions and even helped with some minor accommodations to our guest list. Our daughter was with us for the tour and although shy at first she was Miranda’s best friend by the end. We were so pleased with the service we received and all that Running Deer had to offer we booked our date on the spot. 10/2020 will be here before we know it and we CAN NOT WAIT to work with everyone at Running Deer. Thank you for kindness. Anyone thinking of booking...stop thinking. Book.

  • We got married at Running Deer on February 15, 2020. We knew from the very beginning that we wanted to have our wedding reception at Running Deer. It was the perfect venue for our winter wedding. They also updated their ballroom with brand new hardwood floors, which made the room look even more stunning! Miranda and Kaitlyn were so accommodating. They answered all of our questions and helped make our wedding planning so easy. I am usually nervous letting other people take control but they did everything exactly how I wanted it. The day of the wedding, Heather was there to greet us and was with us the rest of the night. Heather was beyond amazing! She took care of everything and allowed us to relax and enjoy ourselves. Our wedding was everything we dreamed it could be! Thank you Running Deer for making our wedding day truly the best day of our lives!

  • I can’t express how incredible running deer was. It was more than a dream. Miranda and Kate were the BEST I couldn’t have asked for any better. The whole experience was better then I thought it would be. They knew my thoughts before I did. Running deer wasn’t just beautiful but ALL the staff was on point. My guests are STILL talking about how the food was, they’ve never had better wedding food before! That should say it all! I hope someone I know gets married there because I’d love to enjoy it as a guest and relive it. My day was absolutely perfect and I have running deer, their staff, Miranda and Kate to thank for that. Thank you again running deer! Everyone should get married there!!!!

  • What more can I say but that from the moment I stepped foot at Running Deer until the moment I left for the night I did not have to do one thing!! Heather and the team made sure I really got to enjoy my day. The food was amazing, the service was great and when it came to setting up, they really made my vision come to life. Not only did they make sure that I was doing great that day but our family and friends as well. Running Deer made my wedding day as perfect as can be. If you haven’t picked a spot yet I would def suggest them 100 times over !! Thank you again Kate, Heather and Miranda.

  • My son and beautiful daughter in law got married here on 10-6-19. I was taken aback when we first arrived at how beautiful it was. The outside wedding was breathtaking. Absolutely perfect! Once the ceremony was over and we were done with the outside pictures, we joined our friends and family for coctail hour which was outside and again it was a perfect setting. The reception itself was made very enjoyable with the friendly and competent staff. A special shout out to the bartenders for the evening. The important part for me other than the fact that my son married his princess, was Heather. She was with us every step of the day. How she was with the groomsmen and the bride and her girls at the same time, i will never know. She catered to their every need including drinks and food and comfort for them both calming them down before their walk down the isle. As mother of the groom, I have never felt more special because of Heather. She talked with my husband and I and more impor... Read more

  • I just had my wedding here three days ago and I honestly could not wait any longer to write this review. From start to finish I have nothing but amazing things to say about the staff working at Running Deer. The food is absolutely amazing and the place is GORGEOUS!!! First, I met with Miranda, who was extremely kind, helpful, and detail oriented during my venue search. She helped me pick the perfect date, and package that best suited my needs. Next I met with Kaitlyn, who is absolutely AMAZING!! No matter what she was in constant contact with the entire planning process. She walked me through hiring vendors, gave her personal and very honest opinion (which was extremely refreshing and helpful) about linens, food choices, and really showed how dedicated she is to her clients. And last but certainly not least.. Heather DeRosa. On my wedding day- 10/06/19, I was greeted by Heather when I first arrived at Running Deer to prepare for my wedding. As most people are, I was extremely nervous a... Read more

  • My wife and I had the pleasure of hosting my son (Sean) and daughter-in-law's (Kristen) wedding this weekend. Everything was absolutely gorgeous!!! The food was delicious! (Hats off to the chef!) I especially want to thank Kaitlyn and Miranda for all their help guiding us through the entire process. Last but not least, Heather our concierge for the evening gave my entire family the best evening anyone could hope for! The attention she paid to every detail was flawless! Every time we turned around, somehow she was there! My wife and I will be forever grateful. Mike & Sharon Bowen

  • Running Deer was the best venue we could ever hope to have for our wedding!! From our very first visit, we knew we wanted to have our wedding and reception at Running Deer. This venue was considerably more affordable than any comparable venue in North Jersey. They charge by monetary values and not per person, which was a huge deciding factor for us. When we found out they still had a Saturday available in the summer, we jumped at the chance and I'm so glad we did. From the very beginning, Kaitlyn G. was so incredibly helpful and patient! I must've emailed her nearly 50 times in the months leading up to the wedding and she was always happy to answer any of my questions. My now husband and I live about two and a half hours away from Running Deer, so they were great about doing everything through email so that we wouldn't have to make the trip too often. The wedding itself went so smoothly, it was a dream. We asked if we could get to the venue much earlier than originally agreed upon... Read more

  • My husband and I got married at Running Deer Golf Club on 8/9/19 and we were very pleased with our experience. From the very start, we knew we chose the right place. Michael, Kate, and Miranda were welcoming, kind, and helpful from the get-go. Leading up to the wedding. people who were familiar with Running Deer Had only great things to say about it and now we know why. We chose the Timbers ceremony space and it was exactly what we wanted - an intimate, unique space that you don’t usually find at a golf club. This carried into the reception room, too. The grounds are immaculate and the Timbers space was freshly spruced up on the morning of our wedding. We had some different requests for our wedding and they were extremely accommodating which put my worries at ease. Everything ran like a well-oiled machine and they were true professionals. The food was DELICIOUS! We highly recommend Running Deer Golf Club for your future events!

    We are incredibly honored to read your sentiments... thank you! And thank you for taking the time to put pen to paper and express your emotions. From start to finish, you were both gracious, humble, kind, and FUN! A true match for each other through and through. To see your wedding come to fruition was a dream. We love your eye for design and your approach to planning. We know you'll experience the same seamless transition as husband and wife, as you did throughout this journey. Congratulations and know that a Salmon with Crab Newburg Sauce entree will always be waiting for you at The Deer!!! ❤

  • Running Deer was absolutely amazing catering to mine; and my current husband’s every need! Every question you have Kaitlyn answered thoroughly and within a good window of time so the stress level stays low! The day of our wedding Heather was guiding us through every step and made us feel relaxed. I can’t brag enough about this wonderful venue!

    And we can't brag enough about how adorable you two are!!! From your charming cutting board favors to your heartwarming vows, the universe certainly knew what it was doing when it put you two together. We are so fortunate to have taken this path with you. Your kindness throughout the planning process is valued beyond all measure. As the Fabulous Audrey Hepburn says, “If I get married, I want to be very married.” And you, are very married. You're all in!! With love, Your Family at Running Deer –
