Everyone at Running Deer made our wedding stress free and flawless. We loved getting married here!
Running Deer is amazing! We got married there 9/1/2013 and it was everything we dreamed of and more. We literally went to every venue in South Jersey and choose Running Deer because of the great impression we received from the staff and also because of the beautiful location. From start to finish Heather was an absolute pleasure to work with. As a bride dealing with multiple issues, it was so nice to have someone who was so accommodating with all my questions and concerns. On the day of the wedding everything went so smoothly and everything I envisioned came to life thanks to the staff’s work to set up everything. Mary Jo was so great and made sure we were where we needed to be, kept us updated on what was next, and always made sure we had something to eat/drink. Knowing the staff at Running Deer had everything under control helped put our minds at ease so were able to enjoy the day. I can’t tell you how many compliments I received from my guests saying what an amazing wedding we had. We received various raves about the outside pergola, the beautiful ballroom, and the scrumptious Chocolate Room. Running Deer is the perfect location for both a ceremony and reception and is a place I would absolutely recommend. We will forever remember the thoughtfulness and hard work Heather, Mary Jo, Olivia, and staff put into making our day perfect.
Good afternoon, Heather and Olivia,
We want to thank you for a glorious day. Everything was absolutely perfect, When we walked into the main room, we were both taken aback by how absolutely beautiful the room looked. I cannot say enough about the food. Many times the food at a buffet is okay at best. The buffet was delicious. All of our guests commented that it was the best buffet they ever experienced. The Chocolate Indulgence Room was a huge, huge hit with our guests. None of them had seen anything like it. All of our guests were so impressed Your attention to detail is unsurpassed. The warm chocolate chip cookies given out as people were departing were a great touch. Your recommended vendors were outstanding. Bob Morgan kept the reception lively and people on the dance floor which is what we wanted. The use of his Room Glow Package really added another wonderful layer to the room. Laura of Savannah's Garden was simply superb with her flowers. She is such an artist and an absolute joy to work with. Laura was able to bring Megan's vision for flowers even though Meg could not meet with her as she lives in Massachusetts . Speaking of artists, Sweet Life Bakery is truly owned culinary pastry artists. Our guests said it was the first time they ever ate all of the wedding cake.
Again, thank you for the wonderful, wonderful reception. Mary Jo was wonderful and took care of all of the bride and groom's needs as well as making sure we were okay as parents of the bride. My only wish is that we only had more than one daughter. I would have loved to experience another wedding at Running Deer as the Mother of the Bride. I certainly will recommend you both and Running Deer for any event especially a wedding.
Our wedding would have never been so amazing without the help of Heather, Mary Jo, and the rest of the staff at Running Deer Golf Club. All of our guests raves about the classiness of the venue. Many said it was the best wedding they've been to! Heather and her staff went above and beyond to make our day a success and extra special!
Our wedding was absolutely wonderful. Everything was well planned out and the staff at Running Deer made sure that the entire day went smooth. They worked really well with the other vendors and made the night PERFECT! Would definitely recommend to anyone who's looking to book a wedding or even a private event. Also, their chef, A+++++!!!!!
Everything was beyond perfect! Heather, Olivia & Mary Jo were all fantastic and I truly wish I could get married every year just to have another wonderful experience. They all made sure that I did not have to worry about anything, and I am so thankful for everything that they did.

I am so happy that we chose Running Deer to host our wedding ceremony and reception. The venue is beautiful, the staff is responsive and accommodating, and the services included in the wedding package are incredibly reasonable. Each event, from the arrival of the wedding party to the cake cutting, is perfectly orchestrated by an experienced and welcoming maitre d'. Any finishing touches that a bride could wish to add to her big day are made possible with the help of a friendly wedding coordinator. I was so happy to learn that my wedding day would be even more relaxing due to the efforts of Running Deer's staff. My husband and I were truly treated as guests of honor. Running Deer was the best decision we could have made in choosing a venue. Our day could not have been more enjoyable. I highly recommend the staff at Running Deer to host any event with class and elegance.
If you're looking for an elegant wedding venue who takes care of EVERYTHING from the moment you start planning, Running Deer is the place to go. I can't thank them and their staff enough for making our day so special! I wouldn't have wanted it anywhere else! My guests raved about everything from the course, to the food, to of course the chocolate room. Everything was absolutely perfect! I wish we had weddings every year so we could celebrate there again. Go with Running Deer, you will not regret it!
Running Deer Golf Club is a must! Heather and Olivia made the planning process stress-free. They answered EVERY question, cleared up any confusion on my part and were open to all of my ideas. On our wedding day the ENTIRE staff was professional, prepared, and friendly. Our guests are still commenting on how pleased they were at the level of professionalism displayed by the Running Deer staff. Running Deer provided one staff member to work solely for my husband and myself. We never had an empty glass or plate. Every possible need was taken care of efficiently and effectively. I honestly cannot imagine a more perfect day or a more perfect place. Our wedding day was the best day of my life. Everyone at Running Deer made us feel like the most important people on the planet and we cannot thank them enough for all of their hard work and dedication. If you are looking for a beautifully clean ballroom, amazingly dedicated staff, and delicious food you will look no further than Running Deer Golf Club!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!

I had both my ceremony & reception at Running Deer. Heather and the staff at Running Deer are absolutely fabulous. Heather was easy to communicate with throughout the process(this involved many emails) and accommodated everything we asked for. She responded so quickly to all of my questions and concerns. We received so many compliments on the food-- both the cocktail hour food and meals were fabulous. I also absolutely loved how the space was decorated for the holiday season. Mary Jo was also absolutely fabulous on the wedding day. She got us whatever we needed, made sure we knew what was going on, and checked in with us frequently. She also checked up with our parents throughout the night as well, making sure they were taken care of. I really felt like my wedding was in good hands with the staff at Running Deer and wouldn't have changed anything about the day. You can truly trust them to make your wedding perfect.
This was the first venue my husband and I had looked at for our Wedding and nothing else compared to it. Heather was not pushy at all during our consultation and just presented everything they had to offer to us. Running Deer is very accommodating to each and every Wedding. They only do one Wedding for the day so you have the flexibility of choosing your timing. There wasn't a question I asked (which was a lot!) that didn't go unanswered. Heather and Olivia were extremely helpful in planning this event for us.
On the Wedding day, I was even more blown away. The staff was very professional and pleasant to work with. Everything was beyond what I had expected it to be, as far as the set up. I was a bit nervous because I felt like we left them a lot to set up for us the day before and I didn't know if I was clear enough on how I wanted everything. What the team did with everything was perfect, though. They truly know what they are doing!
My husband and I and our guests were treated exceptionally well on our Wedding day. Everyone is till raving about our Wedding. We truly recommend Running Deer Golf Club to anyone planning their...
A couple of years ago I attended a baby shower at the Running Deer. The event was beautiful, the venue gorgeous and food delicious. I knew that when the time came, I'd be back to the Running Deer. When that time did come, my fiance and I visited various other locations throughout the Delaware Valley with little luck. It wasn't until we visited the Running Deer that we found everything we were looking for in a wedding venue.
When choosing a venue, your not only investing in the venue but the manager of that location. The success of your wedding is in their hands. Heather and her team are beyond impeccable and extremely professional. After exchanging countless emails with Heather regarding millions of detailed questions I had, I'm sure she and her team can handle whatever is thrown their way with grace, honesty and most importantly, a smile.
The moment I got to the Running Deer on our wedding day we were greeted by our personal maitre d' who again went above and beyond to ensure we were happy, a drink was in our hand, and everything was going smoothly.
Everything about our wedding was exactly how I envisioned it would be. My seven year old self—whose been dreaming about this day since she can remember—would have been blown away.
Our wedding was absolutely amazing! The entire place is beautiful and I loved the fact that there is only one wedding a day. Everyone was great to work with and the wedding went flawlessly! Also, the food was the best I have ever had, which is what everyone else at the wedding told me too! We definitely made the best choice when we picked Running Deer for our wedding! Thanks so much for making our wedding day awesome!
I can not say enough great things about my venue! I'm getting a little teary eyed remembering how perfect they made our big day! Not only was the entire place beautiful, they made our day easy for us! Heather, their wedding planner, was so easy to work with through all the decisions and she always kept me posted on any updates! The day of the wedding the Maitre D, Mary Jo, was FANTASTIC! She made me feel like a princess on the wedding day! She told us all exactly where we had to be and when we had to do things! Whenever I needed a drink or anything she would run to get it for me. The food was spectacular! They put up all my decorations that I had brought them the day before and took it all down for me to pick up the next day. Every thing was literally perfect! I wouldn't have changed a thing! I would recommend this venue to anyone!!
Running Deer made our wedding the perfect day we envisioned! From planning the wedding with Heather's help to Mary Jo getting us anything we needed the day of, the whole process was excellent! We received many, many comments from guests of the wedding at how great the food tasted from the appetizers to the entree's and chocolate room, to how wonderful the staff was. Everyone worked with my husband and I to make our wedding day perfect. They truly were there for us throughout the whole process and helped work with our requests.
We were thrilled with Running Deer Golf Club - the venue is gorgeous, the food was delicious, the service was great, and the prices were reasonable! Heather was so great to work with leading up to the wedding, and Mary Jo took amazing care of us on our wedding day. They did such an awesome job of moving dinner along quickly so that we had plenty of time to dance and enjoy the night. We had such a perfect, worry-free wedding day! I was just so impressed with everything and can't say enough good things about them! And we've gotten countless compliments on everything from our guests! I would highly recommend Running Deer Golf Club!!
Wow!!!! Heather and the entire staff at Running Deer are great!!!!! They are very accommodating and professional. It was so nice, as a bride, to know that everything was taken care of and would be running smoothly. I was able to really relax and enjoy the day. Everyone was still raving about the food for weeks after our wedding! I would highly recommend Running Deer for any event!!
It was just a wonderful experience from the moment we signed the contract to the event. Everyone was so helpful. The food was out of this world!! Heather took care of everything as far as setting up all the special tables. Mary Jo - can't say enough about her. She was always one step ahead - taking care of everything. Than you so much - looking forward to working with you again.
Working with Heather at Running Deer to plan my wedding day was absolutely wonderful. Even though my wedding had to be moved from Running Deer on the day of the wedding (due to circumstances out of Running Deer's control!), their entire team worked to re-create my reception in another venue that turned out to be absolutely beautiful! Guests could not believe that their staff was able to virtually move my reception from Running Deer to another venue. The service and professionalism is outstanding, and I can't emphasize enough just how highly I recommend this venue to a future bride!
