The Corinthian Yacht Club venue was absolutely perfect for our wedding day August 2, 2014. We had an outdoor reception with 180 guests. The venue is beautiful, and our guests are still raving about it. Words cannot describe how wonderful everything was from the setup of all the tables and decorations, to the delicious food. The food was far better than average wedding food, and the Sangria was GREAT… along with many other cocktails. Everything far surpassed all our expectations. Greg was wonderful to deal with. From quick response times to flawless execution of table and wedding décor; he was nothing shy of outstanding in both coordinating and running the event. He worked with our budget and made it an absolutely perfect wedding. Every one of our friends had the best time of their lives. It was truly the best day of our life, and you will not be disappointed with your event here. We give both the Corinthian Yacht Club and Greg 5+ Stars and would recommend Greg and the Yacht club to anyone looking for an outstanding event. We can’t thank Greg and his team enough for our perfect day.

General Manager Greg Rashdorf and staff made sure that my daughters big day was perfect in every way. The staffs attention to every detail and their obvious enjoyment in working as a team to provide the best concerted effort was obvious in everything that they did from our initial meeting with Greg to the last dance at the reception. KUDOS Corinthian Yacht Club, we are still receiving phone calls and notes from our guests wanting to tell us what a great time they had and that it was the best wedding they had ever attended.

Greg and the staff at the Corinthian made our wedding ceremony and reception a totally wonderful and memorable experience. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day by the water. From the ceremony overlooking the river, to the cocktail hour under the tent, to the buffet dinner in the main dining room and then dancing under the stars -- we couldn't have asked for a more exceptional evening. Greg's extensive knowledge and experience in wedding planning made the planning of our wedding easy and seamless for which I am eternally grateful. He accomodated our every need and he orchestrated the entire event from beginning to end without a hitch (plus he figured out how to get the cannon to go off so David was extremely happy!). I can't say enough great things about the Corinthian staff. They made us feel incredibly special -- I personally felt pampered by each staff member and I know our guests felt the same way. We also received rave reviews about the food especially the tuna! I personally loved all of it!

David and I can't say enough about our special day on June 7, 2014 at the Corinthian Yacht Club. We will always cherish our experience and hold on to the memories with our family and friends on this brilliant evening by the water in Essington, PA. Many thanks to Greg and his staff for making this day so exceptional for us!

The Corinthian Yacht Club is a hidden gem in Essington. Most of my guests kept asking, "How did you find this place?" Our reception began at 5:30pm. Most of my guests arrived to watch the sun set over the river. As it was a November wedding the fireplaces were roaring and welcoming guests in from the cold. The charm of the Yacht club created a romantic and intimate space.
The food was excellent! I might be biased, but I think it was the best wedding food I ever had. Many unique options to serve your guests, but also the food is served WARM!!! Lastly, Greg is a delight to work with. Extremely laid back, but also completely in control at the same time. His professionalism and talent made the evening flow naturally. Honestly, it was the reception of my dreams

My husband and I were thrilled with the service we received from the Corinthian Yacht Club and its manager, Greg. In addition to the beautiful and well kept building itself, the grounds and view can't be beat! Greg was helpful in every step of the planning process and very flexible when it came to decorations, table set up, working with the band, and all other special requests/concerns we had. He even looked at the tide schedule to make sure the date we picked would be during high tide so the view over the river would be ideal. The food was DELICIOUS and all servers were extremely kind and professional. We are very happy we went with the Corinthian and would highly recommend this venue!

I was a wedding photographer for 25 years and this was my first time on the other end of a wedding. We chose Corinthian because we wanted the ceremony and reception at one location and we also wanted the ceremony outside by the water. Greg was extremely flexible to whatever we asked him for, as my many years of experience in the business gave me lots of ideas for our wedding. We wanted a place with an intimate setting as we only had about 75 guests. Our guests were extremely impressed by the outdoor setting for the ceremony and the excellent food that was served.

The Corinthian Yacht Club was an absolute pleasure to work with. I visited and researched many venues in the Philadelphia area and many of them were very inflexible with many things to include the floor plans, meal menu, restricted areas for guests, bar options, and the list could go on. I was so frustrated with many of the venues, but fortunately, I found the Corinthian Yacht Club.

Gregg worked with us on EVERYTHING and he was always very responsive and accommodating. I was able to plan a menu and bar that fit our budget. We also had full access the to club and the grounds for the entire day (some venues have 2, 3 or even 4 other weddings going on at the same time as yours). There were a few different options as to where to set up the cocktail hour, dinner and dancing. I went with cocktail hour outside in the test, dinner and dancing inside. Our photos turned out amazing and our guests are still raving about how beautiful the reception was!

I highly recommend this place to anyone looking to have any type of special event.

Could not have picked a better ceremony and reception venue. Greg and the rest of the staff were truly outstanding in meeting all of our needs and wishes. It was a beautiful day and the outdoor ceremony was just perfect. Many of our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to and we received lots of compliments on the food! The planning was very easy and Greg was great to work with and made everything go off seamlessly. I would tell anyone to most definitely look into this venue, especially if you are looking to have your ceremony outdoors. Thanks again for a truly perfect day!

This venue was lovely and very reasonable compared to other wedding venues in the area. Greg promptly answered all of my emails and questions and was very helpful and professional . They were also very flexible in dealing with us bringing items in ahead of time, scheduling a tasting for us, and dealing with all of our special requests. It was also nice to know that they could have moved the whole thing inside or under the tent at the last minute if we had bad weather. The chef went out of his way to prepare something special that my husband's Grandmother could eat and she actually liked it, which says alot. We had a wonderful day and I could not ask for much more. My only suggestion for improvement would be for them to have someone to see that the bride and groom get a selection of appetizers during cocktail hour, and for the servers hld back a bit on clearing the bridal table. They cleared our cake before we had time to get back and eat it. Only a very small point though and everything else was pretty much perfect.

All in all we had an excellent experience here. The venue was beautiful, the staff was friendly and helpful and the food was the talk of our guests. My only hesitation to rate full 5 stars was a miscommunication that led to us having to change the order in which events unfolded slightly, at the last minute. No one was the wiser but things could've been a little smoother. Everything else about the service and our experience was superb. When it comes down to it I would definitely recommend this place, and would not hesitate to choose this venue for any other celebration.
