My daughter had here wedding at Deerfield in Newark Delware a dew days ago. As the Mother of the Bride I must say I was extremely happy my daughter chose this venue. First of all thank you so much to The Deerfield staff but especially to "David" for his excellence in service. As the mother of the bride for the most part I was nervous, pushy and aggressive because I wanted my daughters big day to be exactly what she wanted. David handled my personality extremely well and did not seem a bit bother but was respectful of all of my requests and too care of my daughter as if she was part of his family and for that I thank you so much David from the bottom of my heart. My daughters wedding was so beatiful, the food, the decor, the service, I cannot say enough about this venue. Deerfield is beautiful and the backdrop for wedding photos are simply beautiful. David even made sure the mother of the brides slippers were place at my table so that I could kick off my heels and enjoy my daughters wedding and dance the night away. As the mother of the bride I can truly say I was very happy with my daughter's decision to have her wedding and reception at Deerfield . David thank you for keeping me laughing and happy.
David thank you so much for everything

Our wedding day was absolutely the best day of my life and it couldn't have gone smoother without the expertise of the staff at Deerfield. Deerfield was the PERFECT place for our wedding reception & our guests still talk about how beautiful our wedding was. The ambiance for our evening wedding was absolutely magical. The grounds were perfect for pictures and the staff catered to us throughout the entire day & evening. The staff was so professional and helpful throughout the entire process & we did not want for anything. Emily was fantastic with her planning and always made herself readily available for any questions or concerns we had. From the planning, to the day of our wedding, Deerfield's staff made the entire process so memorable. David & the rest of the entire staff was excellent & executed the night precisely. They really went above and beyond to make me, my husband and our guests feel so welcomed and special. I really can not say enough about Deerfield. It is one of the best places to have your wedding reception in Delaware. From the breathtaking views the venue has to offer to the delicious food & drinks & the superb hospitality, you can not go wrong with choosing Deerfield. We highly recommend it! Thank you Emily, David & the rest of the staff at Deerfield.

I cannot say enough good things about Deerfield and their staff. From the very first meeting, I had a good feeling that they would be wonderful to work with- professional, responsive, sincere, and very capable. I was not disappointed. The wedding (ceremony and reception) was seamless and the staff all paid such excellent attention to detail. The guests could not stop raving about how great the food was and how smooth everything went. I couldn't be more thankful that we picked Deerfield!

Deerfield is AMAZING!!! They were the perfect venue for my Labor Day weekend wedding. We had about 250 guests and Deerfield's ballroom was the perfect size, we even got to expand the dance floor.

Deerfield's staff was beyond fantastic. The service was on par with a 5-star restaurant, I never saw an empty glass. Angela's industry knowledge and advice proved to be invaluable during the planning phase and she managed to keep the whole process as stress-free as possible. David was awesome! As the day-of coordinator I knew everything was going to go perfectly in David's hands. On our wedding day David would check in throughout the night to make sure we were ok. Anything from a tissue to a 5-hour energy David was there.

Deerfield worked with me to get the exact menu I wanted and their packages are very flexible. The food was phenomenal, everyone was commenting on how great everything was and the taco bar was a HUGE hit!!

Deerfield is a first-class establishment with delicious food and superior service. I will definitely recommend Deerfield to all of my friends.

What can we say except PERFECTION! From the minute we met with Emily we knew Deerfield was the place and we were not wrong. The day was more than we could have ever imagined or hoped for. Emily was so helpful through the entire process. The day of the wedding David was phenomenal and Scott and Anne were also great our bridal party said they felt like royalty. The room looked amazing, the food was great and no detai was missed. Friends and family are still talking about our wedding. I do not think they are enough words to convey how oustanding the experience was that day.

Deerfield was the perfect choice for our wedding. The packages were flexible and we just had an amazing experience! From the beginning, Emily was awesome- answering my endless emails and calls about so many things. She gave awesome advice and really helped us through the wedding planning process. The day of the wedding, David was simply AMAZING. He took care of so many little things and really helped keep the day running smoothly for us and all our guests. He was a huge reason of why our wedding went so well! We had about 200 guests- they all commented on how beautiful the venue was. We were hoping to be married outside near the gazebo, but ended up doing an indoor ceremony due to it being really hot and humid. Even inside, the green golf course and beautiful trees made for gorgeous pictures and wonderful ceremony/reception. Overall, we loved Deerfield and would definitely recommend it to anyone in the future!!

Deerfield is an amazing venue for any event. I've been to several events at Deerfield, so knew it was the perfect place for my wedding! David was amazing, he made sure everything was perfect on our wedding day! We picked the best venue in Delaware!!!

We did have some problems with missing cards (4 cards were stolen), and Deerfield handled it really well. They immediately got the police involved and reimbursed us for the missing cards. I was very impressed with how great they were about it. Now I know to tell everyone and anyone to get a locked wedding card box!!!

We recently had our wedding reception at Deerfield. The entire experience was excellent. Angela, David, Steve and the entire staff at Deerfield went above and beyond to make sure every thing went smoothly on the big day. The cocktail hour, patio and ballroom looked beautiful. Their attention to detail, guests, and bridal party was outstanding. We were extremely pleased with the way the meals were served. There was enough staff to serve over 280 meals at one time. Guests complimented on the service and delicious food all night.
The beautifully landscaped golf course and fountain made for great pictures for the bridal party and guests.
Deerfield was the perfect venue for us and it made for a perfect wedding day!

Deerfield was a truly magical venue for our wedding. Very spacious and elegant, with a large fountain right behind the glass doors enclosed room. They helped organize all the necessary details. The price was excellent given how beautiful the facility was, and how helpful the professionals. Angela was very helpful.

And what they might forget to mention until a few days before the wedding (their secret weapon) is about the banquet manager who will make sure your day is absolutely phenomenal! David was every bride's dream- making sure that the event goes super smoothly, that you have anything you could need or want. I'm not even sure how to put into words what he did- just made sure every detail fell into place on the actual day, and helping make the event was especially stress-free and magical for the bride.

People are still raving about how beautiful the facility was.

We had our small, intimate ceremony and reception at Deerfield and we could not have been happier. The location was beautiful - there were multiple ceremony locations to choose from as well as multiple spaces for our reception. We chose to have the ceremony on the patio terrace & our reception in the beautiful atrium with floor to ceiling windows. The staff was super helpful, accommodating, and cheerful. The food was superb - from appetizers, to entrees, to the lovely desserts. The billing was straight-forward and very reasonable compared with other venues we researched. We have received many compliments from our guests that our wedding was beautiful and the food was great. I would absolutely recommend Deerfield! The whole experience from planning to the big day was low-stress, organized, overall just great!

We have had three Bat Mitzvahs and just finished our third wedding, all at different venues. You need not look any father. Deerfield is by far the BEST venue in the area. The staff is the most professional and attentive staff I have dealt with. They made our daughter's special day the best ever. We rate this 10/10, twice as good as 5/5! Thank you Emily and Micheal for everything.

Our wedding at Deerfield was spectacular. We worked with Emily Ferris who is a wonderful consultant/coordinator. She really knows how to work with brides and their families. Michael Marriott was our coordinator for the actual reception and he made it flow so wonderfully. He blended in with our guests and was able to get our whole reception running smoothly. I highly recommend your reception to be at Deerfield. It's so beautiful!

Deerfield Country Club provided the venue for our wedding reception on Nov 22, 2013. (There ceremony was actually at a church down the road).

Prior to this event, we worked with Deerfield staff who were always gracious. They helped us stay within our budget, and considered our desires for the evening event. The staff was flexible in letting my relatives decorate and bring some items over the week of the reception. The event itself was beautiful - the staff was polite, the food was delicious and sound, lightning and the smaller details were all taken care of with excellence. We appreciated the care of Deerfield and the attention they all gave to our special day. We will look forward to returning to celebrate other occasions there.

As the bride, I would definitely recommend Deerfield as a place to hold your wedding reception. It is lovely, and they are organized so you can be sure that your event will be like you want desire. They are very timely in replying to your questions - even on the weekend at times. They will work with your interests and desires and also help provide some of their own ideas when you get stuck! They work within the time frame and budget and treat you with respect.

We also did our "first look" pictures on the grounds at Deerfield prior to an evening wedding and were so appreciative of Deerfield letting us use their grounds for this too. So happy to have memories at this venue! Thank you Deerfield!

Deerfield is a beautiful reception venue! I love the openness and loved how the room was surrounded by windows. We had plenty of space, which was really important in our planning. Steve G. was with us the whole time during our wedding day and he really made us feel special and took great care of our every request. The wedding was beautiful and they really took all our ideas and listened to what we wanted to make the reception perfect! We had beautiful picture outside on the golf course, every detail was perfect. Would recommend Deerfield to anyone!

Amazing! Deerfield and all their staff (and I mean every single person) were wonderful. They took care of the entire day! The day went off without a hitch. The were all VERY attentive and flexible. From the planning stages all the way through the day of the event, they were responsive and willing to make changes up until close to the last minute. We were going to hold the ceremony outside, but we had to make a decision early in the day about having it inside or out. It was raining the morning of the wedding with little sign of good weather breaking. It turned out to be a gorgeous afternoon and although it was too late (and the grounds were still damp, too) to move the ceremony, they quickly set up tables outside to allow the guests to mingle outside and enjoy the beautiful evening beginning with cocktails. I couldn't have had a more perfect day. I highly recommend them!

I had my reception at Deerfield only. I loved Deerfield and would have other events there as well. They were very accomodating and helpful from the moment I booked all the way through the night our wedding. The food was awesome. I stretched them with some of my ideas and they were able to roll with those things easily. They were accomodating to my friends who helped to clean things up as well. To note, I travel for a living and at the time I was living in Georgia, traveling to the west coast for lunch, to Delaware to plan the wedding and to New England to visit my fiance. They really were so helpful in doing all that they could and meeting with me at schedules that i could meet. Angela was my coordinator and she was lovely and quite helpful. I highly reccommend them. Quite frankly they are very worth their price. It may not be the very cheapest around but it is an outstanding value. It came with the cake from a local vendor in the area.

We had special dietary needs for guests and the Deerfield team was very accommadating. The food was very good and ws delivered in real time; not reheated. We utilized the atriums and the setup worked well of a small wedding as well as any small event. There was a large event in the ballroom going on at the same time and that event did not have any impact to our event. We utilized the 3-CD unit that Deerfield had and play background music.

AWFUL! Deerfield was paid good money to handle all of the details of my wedding. For one, my parents were sat all the way in the back at the reception. I paid extra money to order different colored napkins that when received they were the wrong color. They looked hideous. I paid extra to have one napkin in the center of the table...that was never there. Our dinner should have been over by 4:30, we didn't start eating until 5:00..which left my guests & I 1/2 hour of socializing & dancing. They completely forgot to feed my dj & he came up & snapped at me because of it! I am strictly gluten free & they were aware of that & when my food came out my tomato had a gluten crusting on top of it. My package included a cake from Desserts by Dana & when it arrived it was FROZEN & DRY! It was so embarrassing. I have to say it did taste good at our cake testing. This whole ordeal was nothing but a joke. I contacted deerfield & basically all they gave me was a pitiful "sorry.' Don't waste your time or money on your special day!
