loved every little thing about our wedding at French Creek! We were
looking for a venue that had a beautiful ceremony location and an
equally beautiful back-up plan in case of rain, and French Creek had it!
We were lucky to have a picture-perfect day for our ceremony, but I
would have been equally happy to have the ceremony in the
newly-renovated barn. It is stunning! Our guests loved mingling on the
terrace during cocktail hour and throughout the evening. The whole
venue is beautiful- the foyers, the suites, the grounds outside, there
are so many options for photos. Kate Hannon, the coordinator, was
fabulous to work with. We knew we were in good hands after our first
meeting with her - she is super organized and detail-oriented, and was
very responsive to my emails and questions. Kate has a great sense of
humor and a reassuring presence, which was so appreciated during the
rehearsal and wedding day. I was confident that everything would go
smoothly because she was prepared and had our back should any
complications arise. Kate and her staff are so attentive - even placing
a napkin on my lap during dinner to be sure I didn't spill on my dress!
Our friends and family are still raving about our wedding; from the
food, to the gorgeous space, they loved it just as much as we did.
Thank you so very much to all of the staff at French Creek - we had our
dream wedding thanks to all of your efforts and wouldn't change a
thing! posted 10/9/2019 by Erin G
Like many of the
other reviewers, I also did not want a country club wedding and French
Creek Golf Club provides the perfect balance of a beautiful reception
venue with the service of a country club. Our wedding day was exactly
what we imagined. I had one guest tell me that our wedding looked
exactly like a Pinterest wedding and that was due to the beauty of this
venue. Kate, the event manager, ensured that our event plans were
completed the month before. She and her staff were amazing on the day
of. One example was that our florist did not send flowers for the cake.
Kate was able to strategically take some flowers from our centerpieces
to decorate the cake beautifully! One word of advice is that this venue
is better suited for 200 or less guest. They can squeeze more in but we
had 200 and felt like that was the perfect number for the ballroom. - posted 10/6/19 by Maggie B
We found French
Creek on the knot and fell in love with the venue in the dead of winter
when we had our tour and booked it shortly after! (our wedding was
9/28/19 and the beautiful colors of everything made everything that much
better) We were able to have our ceremony outside, but the backup plan
as the barn would have been just as beautiful! We were able to snag a
few pictures there and I can't wait to see them! Every little bit of the
venue is gorgeous, there isn't one corner that wasn't a photo
Kate was our coordinator and I didn't have to worry about much the day
of because her and her staff took care of it! We had a bridal attendant
just for the bride and groom so from the second we came back from being
married she had drinks for us, she also brought us and the bridal party
an assortment of the food from cocktail hour so we could finish up our
pictures and not miss out she brought the bridal party drinks so they
could enjoy then as well! When our dinner was served, yet we were out
talking to tables she came to find us and let us know, kept the food
warm and I can't thank her enough for basically making sure we ate!! The
food was delicious!! Everything was perfect about our wedding day, I
wish it never had to end so I could continue to enjoy it! posted 10/5/19 by Meghan M
Just WOW. WOW.
WOW. French Creek Golf Club was my absolute dream of a wedding venue.
They have absolutely everything I could ever of imagined from the newly
renovated barn to the insanely gorgeous ceremony spot in front of the
lake/lake house/tree, to the cocktail hour room to the stunning
ballroom. I was beyond impressed with every aspect of this venue and not
to mention the staff that helped make my day absolutely perfect was
AMAZING. Kate knows exactly what she is doing and made every second of
my day seamless. She was amazing to work with and plan and extremely
great at her job! I would recommend French Creek 100 times out of 100
and literally would not of changed one thing about our day. Very
reasonably priced as well and made the whole thing the best experience
ever! posted 9/2/19 by Marissa D
Kate H and her
staff at French Creek Golf Club made our daughters wedding absolutely
perfect!! There was not one detail that they didn’t handle. I, the
mother of the bride, did nothing but enjoy my daughter’s wedding. I did
not have to worry about, take care of, answer questions, or do anything,
Kate and her staff took care of everything! They were amazing ! They
made the place look like our wedding, not just French Creek Wedding. It
was just amazing and perfect. I have four daughters- I hope all of them
get married at French Creek Golf Club with Kate H!!! posted 8/30/19 by Laura M
I could not say enough wonderful things about French Creek, Kate, and
the whole FCGC Team. Kate runs a tight ship in the best way and allows
you to truly let go and enjoy your wedding day from start to finish. We
got married in December and the venue was already tastefully decorated
for the holidays, which was a huge bonus for us, but honestly, it's such
a beautiful space that you really don't need to bring in much
We knew we wanted to get married in the newly renovated barn but it was
still under construction when we first saw the venue. It was easy to
visualize how beautiful it would be but the construction timeline made
me nervous to not see the finished product before locking in the venue.
Kate was kind enough to keep us updated every step of the way to ensure
that it would be done in (plenty!) of time and the ultimate product was
even more stunning than imagined. This addition fits in perfectly with
the classy yet homey feel of French Creek Golf Club. Although we got
married in December, it is clear that the venue would be beautiful in
any season and that the barn as their new "rain option" is probably a
tie with an outdoor ceremony in my eyes - not a bad situation to be in! - N.L.
When my fiancé (now husband) began looking at venues, we already knew
that we wanted French Creek Golf Club. We saw one other venue before
French Creek and a week after viewing FC, we put our deposit down. We
knew that the rustic-chic vibe of the venue and the landscape was
everything we wanted, but what we didn’t know was how truly amazing the
catering staff was. Kate, the wedding coordinator is the absolute best
around. She made us feel so comfortable and relaxed throughout the whole
planning process. She was on top of everything and it made us feel so
at ease. The day of our wedding (11.9.18) it decided to pour, all day.
Guest ran late because of weather and we ran behind our timeline, but
leave it to Kate and her staff to make it work. Everything was flawless
and it was the absolute best day ever. The food is amazing and we still
get compliments on the meal. The staff at French Creek really take the
day in their hands so the bride and groom and really enjoy their day. I
wouldn’t have changed one thing about that day and I’m so glad we chose
French Creek Golf Club to start our new beginning and Mr. and Mrs. I
highly suggest anyone looking for their venue, definitely put this on
your list!!!! A.B.
Our daughter was married here last weekend and it was a perfect experience. No words can explain the beauty of this venue and the professionalism of the entire staff. They employ a full time gardener and it shows. The gardens, the entry space, every direction was beautiful and well maintained. The expansive views off of the terrace and the cocktail space was picture perfect. You literally have multiple options for wonderful pictures. Kate H., the wedding coordinator is EXTRAORDINARY, very responsive, enthusiastic, accommodating, from our first contact to the event. No question was too much and I wish I could bottle her energy. Her assistant Shelby was wonderful to work with as well. Kate and Shelby were there from when we entered the bridal suite to when we left. They stuck to the timeline and kept everyone updated and informed. Even one of the owners of the club checked in with us to make sure everything was perfect. When the ceremony had to be moved into the newly renovated and beautiful barn due to possible rain, that was an easy transition. The chosen preferred providers were excellent and Kate coordinated with them as well. The food was superb, every guest mentioned how great the food and the servers were. Every server could not have been more helpful, getting special requests, water glasses always filled and even getting me 2 slices of cake so I could try both varieties and I didn't even ask for that. The cocktail space is lovely and they were able to open the full wall of windows onto the terrace. Guests reported very short lines coming in after the ceremony as they provided 3 bars. Literally not one complaint or hiccup and that is almost unheard of. Cannot recommend for your wedding or event any more highly. If you want a 5 star experience, book it asap. It is worth every cent for a remarkable and memorable wedding!- M.Q.
Words cannot describe the amazingness that is French Creek Golf Club.
The expectation we had for our wedding day was completely blown out of
the water by FCGC. After visiting some possible venues and not finding
anything too special, we went to FCGC and just knew it was "The One". It
is not your typical golf club wedding venue, the grounds are truly
stunning. We picked FCGC solely for its inside and outside beauty but
little did we know we would "get" an even better bonus, wedding
coordinator, Kate. The entire wedding planning process was an ease all
thanks to the incredible Kate & Shelby. They worked with us every
step of the way and literally took care of everything. Without Kate,
Shelby, and the rest of the staff our wedding day would not have been as
amazing as it was. Especially because for our July wedding, it
torrentially down POURED all day long. But, thankfully we had the
gorgeous plan B option of the barn. WOW!!! The inside was beautiful and
our guests couldn't stop raving about it. Kate, Shelby, and the staff
were so helpful not only to us but, also our guests, making sure
everyone was as covered as they could be going in and out of the barn.
Thinking there was no way the day could get any better, it did. The food
was incredible, literally all of it. Our wedding day was everything we
had hoped and more. We feel so lucky that we had the opportunity to work
with such great people at such a breathtaking venue. If we could, we
would have our wedding day there over & over again. It truly was our
Best. Day. Ever and it was all thanks to Kate, Shelby, and French Creek
BEST DAY EVER! No need to think twice about hosting your wedding here!
We got married here on August 18 2018. We live in Maryland, about an
hour and 20 min away and with no hesitation at all, we KNEW from the
moment we stepped foot on the property that this is where we wanted our
day to unfold. We, along with our guests, could not say enough nice
things about this venue. Every inch is stunning, and hosts SO many
beautiful opportunities for breathtaking photos. Not to mention the
ladies and all the helpful staff involved in the planning process. Kate
and Shelby were literal angels with the most spirited and positive
attitudes - SO accommodating. They made EVERYTHING from day one a breeze
and went above and beyond expectations. Kate even jumped in and helped
bustle my dress before our entry to the reception! The food was amazing,
the desserts were amazing. Our guests could not stop talking about our
day. I would recommend this venue a million times over to anyone in
question. - L.S.
cannot begin to describe what a magical day it was. If you are looking
for a stunning venue with magnificent staff, I highly suggest checking
out FCGC. Our friends and family still rave about French Creek, saying
it was one of the most beautiful wedding venues they've ever been to.
From the very beginning, Kate was nothing short of fantastic. There are
so many details that go into planning a wedding; so many things I would
have never thought of. Trust me ladies, if you want anyone being
responsible for your big day, you want Kate and her team. Kate and
Shelby are extremely detailed oriented, organized, and responsive. They
both were super patient with both my husband and I throughout the
entire wedding process. Speaking of process, Kate and Shelby always
made sure I was following the recommended timelines as far as when to
send out save the dates, invitations, touching base with vendors, etc.
The weeks leading up to our wedding, I'm pretty sure I called or
emailed Kate 32084037 times. She always eased my mind and kept me calm.
Our day was unforgettable. The food was delicious, the ballroom was set
up just how I envisioned it, and the staff were so attentive and
friendly to everyone. From our day-of decision to get married in the
newly renovated barn (which is stunning) due to the weather, to the very
end of the evening, we cannot say enough about French Creek. We would
1,000 times over choose French Creek! - A.V.
French Creek is absolutely amazing - the staff is phenomenal,
the venue is gorgeous, and the food is top notch. I really don't know where to
start, but in short, Kate & Mindy made our wedding dreams come true. They
were accommodating with ALL of our requests, from the smallest detail - like
making sure my 95 year old grandmother got a gigantic bowl of ice cream to go
with her dinner (because she was leaving early), to the major wishes ... When
it comes to value, we were truly lucky to find French Creek when we did,
shortly after major renovations to the event spaces, because this place is/will
be definitely in high demand from here on out.
My last note is this - I was sure of one thing when we started
looking for reception spaces - I did not want to get married at a golf club.
Golf isn't my thing, and I didn't want to get married steps away from an 18th
hole. This place, as a golf club, was my last choice, until I saw it. The club
building has all the charm of a home featured on "Fixer Upper," with
a gorgeous pond and barn surrounding the ceremony space. The golf is completely
separated from the wedding venue side of the club, and it truly feels like the
cozy, modern farmhouse you wish you grew up in with the space to hold a fantastic
party for your friends and family.
Thank you French Creek! We had the best day of our lives thanks
Words cannot express how truly blown away my family and I are with
French Creek! I had my wedding there on July 8th and it was THE PERFECT day.
The service was stellar, the organization was beyond amazing, the food was
wonderful, and the day ran so smoothly thanks to Kate and all of the other
wedding team members at French Creek. Kate is AMAZING! She listened to
everything we said and helped us to execute our perfect day. Kate Hannon, the
wedding coordinator, would get beyond 5 stars in our book! She was on top of
everything and went above and beyond to make sure our day was exactly what we
wanted. Our guests wrote us countless emails complimenting on how beautiful the
venue was and how amazing the food was! Our pastor wrote to us and said,
"I have been to many, hundreds, of wedding receptions and this wedding was
the best wedding I have ever been to. I hope my daughter has a wedding just
like this one day." Look no further! French Creek will not disappoint! I
will recommend French Creek to anyone! It was beyond amazing to have a wedding
at this venue!!
Although I have not had my wedding yet
as it is not until June 2019, I can already say that French Creek Golf Club is
amazing. The entire process so far has just been outstanding and the venue is
BEAUTIFUL. Kate, the wedding coordinator, is so nice and knows how to make the
wedding planning flow seamlessly. She definitely knows her stuff and I know she
will make everything run as smooth as possible on the big day! I also met one
of the owners who is also extremely nice. The venue has recently undergone
renovations and additions and its breathtaking. It checked off every single
thing I wanted from the scenery to the decor. I advise all brides to check it
out. You will not be disappointed.
Amazing experience! We had our ceremony and reception at French Creek.
When we visited this venue I fell in love. The space is so beautiful and the
ceremony sight cannot be beat. The wedding coordinator, Kate, took over about
halfway through our planning process and was amazing. The day of the wedding
she was on top of everything that was going on. She made sure everything went
smoothly and everything was on time. We had 200 guests and she managed it so
well. The food service was outstanding and came out quickly. No one was waiting
around between courses or for other people at the table to be served. I could
not be happier with how our wedding day went. I had many guests comment on how
beautiful and well organized the venue was. I would recommend French Creek to
anyone looking to have a gorgeous and stress free wedding day!
I just had my wedding at French Creek this past weekend and it was the
best experience! The staff was super friendly and helpful. Kate the event
manager was my favorite person and helped me every step of the planning
process. Everyone could not stop raving about the landscape, the building and
the food. I would recommend this venue to everyone. Loved it!!
A thousand times yes. From working with us to schedule our original
wedding date of 10/13/2017, to allowing us to push it up to 3/31/2017 with only
2 months notice, to working with our guest count due to budgeting reasons, I
would recommend French Creek over and over again. Kate, the woman who we
ultimately ended up working with come the big day was an absolute joy. She was
very attentive to myself and my husband, making sure that all our needs had
been met. The wait staff was very courteous and professional as well. I ended
up getting flowers for my center pieces at the very last minute and Kate and
her team did not think twice about making my floral arrangements for me the day
of my wedding, which was greatly appreciated. The food was phenomenal and the
venue itself is absolutely gorgeous, with a rustic charm. I had my dream
wedding thanks to French Creek.
Thank you so much for all your hard work & planning with this wedding. You went above and beyond in every way. From day one until the end. Everything was wonderful...people said it was the best wedding they ever went to, even the New Yorkers! Eric said it was a 10 out of 10. Everyone loved the food and venue. All of the staff went above and beyond. People were impressed by the attentiveness to every detail.
My husband and I would like to convey our sincere appreciation for the amazing support you and your staff provided to help make my parents anniversary party so special. Our guests had a wonderful time and had nothing but compliments to describe their interactions with the staff. The food was delicious and everyone involved showed kindness and warmth to our family. We are grateful to everyone for helping us provide such a wonderful memory to my parents and our family. As always, a job completed above and beyond expectations by everyone at French Creek.
I just wanted to let you know you and your staff did an absolutely wonderful job with Kelsey & Scott's wedding reception. It couldn't have been run better. Everyone, top to bottom, delivered fantastic service and provided the utmost care in every aspect we could have hoped for. All the guests raved about the venue and the food (from the hors d'oeuvres to the dinner course) was just awesome. Mary Ann and I could not have been happier. Thank you so much for all your efforts and please pass this message on to your staff. Additionally, please forward to French Creek owners, they were so involved. We definitely would have no hesitation recommending French Creek to anyone and would genuinely encourage them to consider this venue for their event.
Just wanted to thank you and all the staff at French Creek Golf Club for the great job you did at our son's wedding this past weekend. The bride said it turned out to be the "wedding of her dreams" and we couldn't have asked for a better outcome. We appreciate how hard you worked getting things together, especially the two weeks prior to our event. Family and friends were impressed buy the level of service that was provided and many commented that they would consider French Creek Golf Club when planning their next event. The food was absolutely scrumptious from the hors d'oeuvres to the wedding cake. The wait staff were polite, pleasant and professional. We couldn't have purchased a better venue at any cost. We considered several other places for this event and French Creek was absolutely the highest quality for the best price. Thank you again.
When my husband and I visited French Creek Golf Club a few years ago, I knew immediately that this was the place where I wanted us to get married. I can't even begin to explain how easy and fun planning our wedding was with the staff. The event planner, was on top of everything we requested and just made our visits so much more comfortable and about us. The golf course alone is breathtaking, and the newly added features in the ballroom just make this place even more unique. All my guests complimented the amazing chef and the entrees that were chosen. I highly recommend French Creek and can't wait until our next visit.
We are so happy with our experience at French Creek Golf Club! The wedding reception was beautiful from the cocktail hour until the last song played for the night. All of our guests had a fantastic time. The food was terrific, and the beautiful decor made for the most memorable experience of my life! It was truly a day I will cherish forever.
Thank you so much for the wonderful work everyone put into making our wedding extra-special. From the help your coordinator gave, to the banquet manager's assistance, the food, the workers, and the gorgeous scenery, it was truly a night to remember. I can't stop think of it all - truly feeling blessed.
Thank you so much for your part in making Brad and Ashley's wedding such a beautiful occasion. Despite the torrential rain, all turned out perfect in their eyes. We realize a lot of quick thinking and planning went into making that happen. I am sure we don't even know the half of all that was done...so many people involved...right down to having a dry chair to sit on! We have received nothing but compliments regarding the entire event. Please extend our sincere appreciation to the staff and the chef. Everyone was so polite and professional. The food was amazing. I heard many guests say it was the best wedding food ever!
