Wedding - 10/14/16. We looked at a lot of potential venues and settled on Deerfield because it is so beautiful. Little did I know when we booked it that the attractiveness of the venue wasn't the half of why Deerfield was the right choice for us. From the beginning to end, our wedding consultant (Angela) worked with us to make sure everything was exactly how we wanted and amazingly (and thankfully), she worked hard to keep it within our budget. She was professional, efficient and totally responsive to any requests no matter how trivial - an absolute pleasure to work with! And then there was the event itself. We had the wedding (the grounds are lovely), cocktail hour and reception there ... and the food, service and facility were beyond wonderful. Our event manager (Michael) saw to every need, keep us on time and made sure everyone had a great time. Everything was perfect. I have given it a lot of thought and there is not one thing that I can think of to have made it any better. We are so pleased and have received so many compliments from people, many saying it was the best wedding they had ever attended. Deerfield is definitely the northern Delaware location for a fairy-tale like, picture perfect wedding. I highly recommend it.

My husband and I were married at Deerfield (ceremony and reception) on October 8th, 2016- Angela was an absolute gem leading up to the event, and David assisted in keeping my nerves down/sugars up/brain on track throughout the day to pull off an incredible event! Angela was very organized and proactive in sending emails, reminders, etc throughout the 15 month period in which we booked Deerfield and the day of our wedding; likewise, she was very flexible in scheduling meetings as needed as the wedding drew closer and closer to finalize items such as menu, guest count, etc. The only complaint I have is that I did not find it to be explained well about the "cake credit"; if you do not utilize the primary baker that Deerfield utilizes for their wedding cakes, then you received a "cake credit". This does not mean that you receive, for example, $500 of your bill/minimum revenue to put towards your cake, but instead a few dollars are deducted from each guest's total to "credit" the cake they are not eating for Deerfield. Again, it is possible this was described/explained to me and I misunderstood, but i was quite surprised to have a separate bill for my wedding cake following the event. The day of my wedding, it downpoured and David and his crew were wonderful about waiting until the absolute last minute to make the call to move the event indoors (i.e. instead of the patio). I had dreamed of getting married under the pine trees, and whereas Hurricane Matthew prevented this reality, David and his team were very understanding and doing everything they could to try and hold the ceremony outdoors, weather permitting. Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful being in the ballroom, and they did a great job sectioning off the ballroom so it felt more intimate during the ceremony! They also did a wonderful job of minimizing the attention towards my sister in law passing out during the ceremony/keeping the focus and attention on my husband and I.

Deerfield recently hosted my wedding, and was phenomenal in every way. Their staff was courteous and professional, and every detail was exactly as planned. The food and accommodations were excellent. My wedding had 78 guests, which was the perfect size for their smaller ballroom. The ceremony was also on the premises by the gazebo, which was perfect as well. The rates were very competitive with other wedding venues.

We would highly recommend Deerfield to anyone looking to get married in the future.

The Deerfield and the staff were wonderful. Claire was very easy to work with and answered all of our questions. The venue was gorgeous, and all the windows overlooking the golf course made for a beautiful background for our pictures and lighting in general. I almost didn't include it in my list of possibilities because based on the appearance it was probably going to be outside our budget, but they worked with us to make sure we stayed in our budget. They were also great about accommodating our food restriction requests which included guest allergies, gluten free, vegan, and kosher. We let the chef's recommendation guide our food choices and all the dishes were absolutely amazing. We also rented an additional room as a game room for all the kids invited, which worked out really well. The younger cousins and children really appreciated having a room they could retreat to and hang out in that was separate from the event as a whole. The entire event was wonderful, the staff was great, the planning was very easy, and the venue was gorgeous. I would definitely recommend them!

There aren't enough compliments for the wedding & reception Deerfield gave us. They were hands on, detail oriented & made sure everything ran smoothly. They worked within our budget too! The grounds & ballroom are absolutely beautiful. The food was delicious & they were sensitive & accommodating about our request for both non-vegetarian & vegetarian food. Angela, Dave, Gabby & the team did an incredible job & have the best personalities for their jobs!! -MK

I cannot even begin to explain how wonderful the staff and grounds of Deerfield are! Our wedding was April 30 and our day was absolutely perfect!! People are still telling me what a wonderful time they had and how beautiful it was and how good the food was! Angela was so incredibly helpful from the very first email conversation. She took time to answer my endless emails and was always prompt with her responses. She made the planning process fun and easy and seemed to take some of the stress away. And the value was outstanding! The food alone was incredible, not to mention the beauty of the ballroom and the grounds. I was not too picky about layouts or decorations of the ballroom and they made it beautiful! The day of the event was better than I could have dreamed! David was wonderful at the event! I appreciated how he made sure to take my plans for the day and keep me to it! All I had to do was mention something and David was on it! His professionalism and kindness made me feel like the queen of the day!! Gabby was also wonderful! It was almost like she read my mind and was there the second I needed something. She even helped bustle my dress! I just truly cannot say enough wonderful things about this venue! Everything was simply perfect and I was able to thoroughly enjoy my wedding day!





The entire staff was so great! And the food was absolutely delicious! Even when I went back to my own dinner an hour later, it was still yummy cold!!





Someone asked me if there was anything about my day I would change and I couldn't think of anything! It was absolutely perfect!

We could not be happier with our wedding experience at Deerfield. We had just about 8 weeks to pull a wedding together and Angela helped us work through the planning process, providing invaluable advice and tips along the way. She was flexible and responsive to my many emails and questions. We weren't sure if we could have the ceremony outside or not, so Angela had a plan either way that used the beautiful rooms to best advantage. On the day of the wedding, Michael was our point person and he was fabulous-- he anticipated our needs and ensured that the event went off flawlessly. The appetizers and the main dish were top notch, and I heard many compliments from the guests. We had one guest with special dietary needs and that was no problem. Perhaps the best compliment I can give is that I was able to relax and enjoy our guests and the reception without having to double check details or timing. From start to finish, Angela, Michael, Anne and everyone else we had contact with at Deerfield went above and beyond our expectations.
