I strongly recommend this venue for your wedding. We had two weddings in one week so budget was a BIG concern. Greg helped us stay within our budget and was so accommodating. He paid attention to the details and gave us lots of recommendations. Our wedding was dubbed "a United Nations summit" because we had people from all over the world attending. Greg ordered Haiti's rum as well as German beers and allowed us to bring in specialties for cocktail hour. He responded to all of our emails/calls in a very timely manner (even on a Saturday night). The food was AMAZING. They were able to make specialty dishes to accommodate our ethnicities (jerk chicken, south indian curry, fried plantains, rice and beans....need I say more) and we got SO MANY COMPLIMENTS. People thought we spent a lot more than we actually did! Three weeks later and we're still getting lots of compliments. I was set on having a city wedding, but after seeing this venue, I fell in love and I'm so glad we chose the Corinthian over a hotel downtown. The backdrop makes for beautiful pictures.

One last note. We had the dinner inside and the ceremony, cocktail hour and dancing were held outside. I was nervous about the transition but there was no need to be. Everything worked out perfectly. We got married in June and although we provided insect repellant, it was not needed. Even though you are on the water, no bugs! I can't say enough about how great this place is and its a short drive from the city. Take a look at this place and you'll be happy you did!

Absolutely everything about our experience with the Corinthian Yacht Club was praiseworthy. Greg made the process of planning the wedding less painful than it could have been. He's open to any ideas and is always willing to go above and beyond to make the day exactly as envisioned. His candor and suggestions were incredibly helpful and he answered any questions in a timely manner (even when he was out of the office). Also, the price was inclusive and reasonable. We never felt that the club was nickel-and-diming us or that they were cutting corners. The food for all of the events (rehearsal dinner, cocktail hour and reception) was superb and I cannot say enough good things about the staff. They were willing to accommodate any request with a smile and were so friendly and easygoing that it made it that much better to work with them. Finally, the venue itself is beautiful. The clubhouse is clean and the decor is perfect. Meanwhile, the river provides a wonderful backdrop. We are still receiving compliments on our wedding and we are anxious to attend an event at the Corinthian as guests so we can have the full experience.

The Corinthian Yacht Club was the perfect location for our wedding! And affordable for those on a budget. The building is beautiful - clean, polished. The grounds are perfect for any event, but especially a wedding. We wanted to get married by the water but at a local spot - the CYC exceeded our expectations. Greg was easy to work with and was always there with answers to my many questions. He is a true professional and good at what he does. The CYC is a hidden gem that we were lucky enough to find!

Shortly after my engagement and after looking at many venues, I walked into the Corinthian Yacht Club and knew immediately it was, "the one". My mom attended a wedding there about 15 years prior and that is the only reason why we knew this gem existed! You try to leave a venue making the person you met with think, "We'll think about it and let you know"...it was the exact opposite for me. I walked out of there and told my mom that there was no doubt in my mind that The Corinthian Yacht Club of Philadelphia was the place where our wedding reception would be held- Our deposit was left that day!

Other than it being a beautiful facility with an amazing surrounding property, I was more concerned with service and food because my wedding was not like the average wedding. Our reception was only a dinner- No alcohol, no music. My husband is in the Army and I was planning to move to the west coast a few days after our wedding- We wanted this to be more than a reception- It was an opportunity to visit with family and friends before we took off for the west coast. We didn't want any distractions. Greg paid attention to every detail and helped us plan the perfect dinner within our strict budget. He returned my messages quickly and often included the Burger King slogan, "Jennifer, you can have it your way" Nothing was too difficult for him to pull off and as a bride to be- THAT IS IMPORTANT because we all have our specific visions.

The service was awesome, food was great, my wedding photos on the grounds were AMAZING and my guests are still raving about it 3 months later. I highly recommend Corinthian Yacht Club of Philadelphia- No matter your budget, I assure you they can give you what you need!

We were so grateful to find this hidden gem for our wedding venue! My mom was hospitalized prior to the wedding, thankfully she made it to the wedding and Greg was able to rest my nerves and took care of all of the details! It also rained the day of our wedding.. We were still able to have dancing outside and the pictures are unbelievable! Would highly recommend! We are still getting compliments from our family and friends on how smoothly the evening went and what a unique/beautiful venue the Corinthian Yacht Club is!

Corinthian Yacht Club was wonderful. Dealing with Greg and the staff was so easy for me a first timer throwing a party for my sons wedding. All of the guest were amazed and impressed with the club and the food was great. I will definitely use the Corinthian again if I have another affair to plan.

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!
