  • My husband and I got married at Running Deer on September 28, 2018 and the day COMPLETELY exceeded our expectations. I had been looking for a venue that was different from the typical crystal chandelier NJ ballroom and Running Deer completely fit the bill. The space is intimate and rustic, with gorgeous high ceilings and these giant windows looking out onto their perfectly manicured grounds. From the moment we signed our contract, we knew we were going to be treated like family. Essentially all of our wedding planning was handled through Kate, who did a phenomenal job answering questions, responding in a timely fashion, and easing all of our concerns. We felt so prepared going into the day because we knew she had everything taken care of. Then on the day of the rehearsal, we had the pleasure of meeting Miranda. She not only coordinated the rehearsal with ease (when everyone was of course excited and slightly out of hand), but she took our massive pile of lanterns, candles, lights, wood... Read more

  • We had our wedding there on 9/22/18. Events coordinator, Kaitlyn, was awesome! She was always professional and courteous. Kate was always prompt with answers to our numerous questions. For the day of, we were introduced to concierge, Heather. Heather was with us throughout the wedding. She took such good care of us that by the end of the reception, she was a new friend. We had many vendors and Heather and her team made it work flawlessly. We would definitely recommend Running Deer Golf Club to anyone who wants a top notch, memorable wedding. Many thanks to the team at Running Deer Golf Club! The Mosley's

  • Running Deer was absolutely the perfect place for my husband and I to have our wedding. The staff was always super helpful, very informative, and on top of every detail. The whole place inside and out is so beautiful, and the food was amazing! I'm so so happy that we chose Running Deer for our big day last month. Thank you so much for making our day so perfect!!!

  • I cannot write enough positive things about Running Deer Golf Club as a wedding venue. From the moment my wife and I walked in we knew we had to have our wedding there. The venue had everything I was looking for, high ceilings, a woodsy outdoor feel, and friendly people working there, good food, and a large space to get ready with our giant wedding party, bonus points for being a very reasonable price. Being a same sex wedding we had lots of different requests and Running Deer was able to accommodate all of them. Our wedding coordinators Olivia (sadly is no longer there), Kaitlyn, and the two Heathers answered many emails promptly and always had all the answers. We visited the venue multiple times before the wedding and they were always eager to show us whatever we came to look at. The day of the wedding was flawless.

  • We had a great experience planning our wedding with the team at Running Deer! Kaitlyn was so helpful, patient and informative, and our concierge Heather was amazing the day of the wedding - getting us drinks and food, making sure we knew where to go and when, keeping us informed of the weather forecast, and more. Everything was beautiful, the food was great, and the chocolate indulgence room was a huge hit with our guests!

  • We just had our wedding on 7/21/18 at Running Deer, and everything turned out perfectly. Kaitlyn, Olivia, and Krista were all AMAZING. Every time I sent an email I received a response pretty much right away. The food was delicious...we did the buffet, and everyone told us how good everything was. I have a wheat allergy and have to eat gluten free. Running Deer was SO accommodating for me. They made me a separate dish that was GF, and the bakery they work with (Stella! in Sewell) made me my own small GF cake. We weren’t sure if we were having our ceremony inside or outside, as the weather forecast looked pretty miserable. They let us decide the morning of the wedding-while we were already there-that we would do it inside. Everything was really so beautiful and went so smoothly, I can’t recommend them enough. We are so happy we had our wedding at Running Deer!

  • Wow, I cannot say enough good things about the Running Deer! Where to start! Kait and Heather are amazinggggggggggg! I had looked at 11 wedding venues before I found the Running Deer (so as you can tell, I’m very picky!). This venue is truly a diamond in the rough! It’s kind of in the middle of nowhere, but that is what makes it so special. It’s so quiet and secluded so you are guaranteed to not have any wedding crashers haha! Not only is the venue stunning inside and out, it is a great value! We signed up during a special they had and we got an entire hour of open bar for free in addition to a $500 Visa gift card as a gift from them the day of our wedding. Other perks: if you want to do floating candles in vases on mirrors for centerpieces, they offer that free of charge (specifically, vases and mirrors included)! The cake is included as well and it was DELCIOUS!!! For cocktail hour, they offered a macaroni station which was included (usually venues will charge a lot for station... Read more

  • I really cannot save enough wonderful things about Olivia, Kaitlyn, Heather, and the entire Running Deer staff! Our wedding day was absolutely perfect, and that was all due to how amazing the staff at Running Deer is! Olivia and Kaitlyn were incredibly helpful throughout the entire wedding planning process! They were always friendly, and willing to help/answer questions through email or over the phone! Heather was amazing on the day of the wedding! She constantly made sure we had anything we needed - food, drinks, desserts, any personal things we had forgotten! Kaitlyn and Heather also were incredible in helping set up all my DIY wedding decor, and made my vision a reality all while they made me relax in the bridal suite and just enjoy the day! On top of all the amazing staff, the venue is beautiful! There are so many locations on the golf course for pictures! 2 amazing ceremony sites, a beautiful rustic but classy ballroom, and spacious bridal suites to get ready in! The food is also ...

  • 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!!

  • 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!
