All I can say about Penn Oaks is WOW. They are truly nothing short of amazing. From day one when I walked in and met Lori (my coordinator), I knew I would be in for a wonderful experience! From napkins to room set up to questions and concerns, she addressed it all with a positive, fun, and friendly attitude. The staff, including the clubs owner, treat you like royalty during your entire experience. Their prices are unbeatable - trust me, I looked at over 40 venues. For being located in a relatively high-dollar area, you'd expect to pay tons for such a positive experience, but that's definitely not the case here. Penn Oaks values your feelings, is willing to work with you and accommodate you in any way they can, and do it with grace and an unbeatable attitude along the way. I've recommended them to every one of my friends who are getting married in the near future, and to others who have mentioned they were looking for a place to host other events. If you want peace of mind, quality bang for your buck, friendly staff, and to feel like you really do matter, go with Penn Oaks. I promise, you won't be disappointed!
Our experience at Penn Oaks was the best possible! We owe a huge thank you to Dawn who helped us from the start of our planning until the end of the wedding! Lisa was also great during the reception! We had the ceremony & reception at Penn Oaks. We lucked out with a beautiful day. Words cannot describe how perfect the entire wedding & reception turned out. Dawn & Lisa think of everything and they make sure they take care of the bride and the groom the entire time. We had so many people tell us that it was the best wedding they've ever been to (of course we agree haha)! Thank you so much for giving us such a special wedding!
Made all my dreams come true!!
planned this wedding in less than 2 months. Carina at Penn Oaks pulled it off. I did not stress at all. She was so efficient at pulling everything together in such a short time. All of our guests had a great time! Would do it again there!
AMAZING is the only way to describe this venue. The patio and ballroom are beautiful. The Penn Oaks staff were incredible... professional, friendly, and helpful. Our wedding planner Carina was great to work with and tied everything in together just as I had imagined it. The banquet manager Lisa went above and beyond to make sure that not only myself and my husband were having a great time, but that the guests were being taken care of as well. The whole night was perfect and to be a bride and not have to worry about a single thing the entire time is priceless. Our guests had nothing but the best compliments of the venue and it was more perfect than my husband and I could have ever imagined.
Thanks Steve, Carina & Lisa for making the day PERFECT for us!!
My ceremony and reception was on Penn oaks site and my husband and I could not have been happier with our choice. From the very beginning carina our coordinator was so helpful and always available to talk if I had any questions or concerns. The day of my wedding could not have been any better, carina and Lisa made sure everything went smooth. While we were walking out to the tree to take pictures carina at one point had my bouquet and my 14 month old nephew in her arms (who was my ring bearer).She truly was amazing. I wish I could do the whole day all over again.Thank you to carina and Lisa for making my day so special!!!!
We were married at Penn Oaks Golf Club on Saturday, September 13th 2014. Our wedding was awesome.. Carina was our coordinator, she was extremely helpful. Any questions or concerns I had, she answered in a timely manner and was easily available.
The day of the event it rained and we had to have the wedding ceremony inside the permanent tent. They did a nice job, setting it up.
We were very happy with the food as well. Many of our guest commented that the food was very good and there was so much of it.
Lisa, who is the banquet manager took over on the day of the wedding after Carina left, she was just as helpful. Whatever we needed she was right there to take care of.
My husband and I can't say enough nice things about Penn Oaks.
Thanks Steve, Carina & Lisa for making this day just PERFECT for us!!
Penn Oaks was amazing! They are so organized and they know what they are doing for wedding preparations and day of! The ballroom is beautiful and the grounds are great for pictures. The service on the wedding day was perfect. I got ready at Penn Oaks in their bridal suite which was ideal- they let us order food for lunch and brought it to us. The service during the wedding dinner was awesome, the wait-staff always made sure we (bride/groom) had what we needed and wanted. Overall, could not have asked for a better time. Highly recommend for a wedding!
From the very start Penn Oaks was amazing. The price's are very reasonable and include so much. The staff are always so friendly even when I called about something so stupid.Come the day of i didn't have to worry about a thing, Lori & Lisa (wedding Coordinators)went above and beyond not just for us but all our guest. They handled everything from the food & alcohol to wedding cake & decorations. We even had fireworks at our wedding from Penn Oaks. The food was superb, we had the normal chicken and beef for dinner, a cheeseburger station at cocktail hour and a dessert station. Everyone comment about how beautiful the venue was and how awesome the food was. I recommend Penn Oaks to everyone I talk to and would go back there for other venues.
Our experience at Penn Oaks was wonderful!!! I had the pleasure of working with Dawn, from the very beginning to the very end she was amazing, and always there to help and make planning a breeze! We had our ceremony and reception at Penn Oaks, since it rained, we had to move our ceremony inside to the terrace, but they made the last minute change work out beautifully, no one would of guessed it was supposed to be outside! The food and drinks we're delicious as well, my guests are still raving about the cheesesteak station at cocktail hour! We had the best day of our lives and couldn't be happier with choosing Penn Oaks! Thank you Dawn & staff for helping to make our day special!
I want to start by saying that our day was so perfect and wonderful and Penn Oaks Golf Club made our wedding a dream come true! When I began my search for a venue I wanted a mansion wedding with a tent and all the works and was complete against any country club venue. Boy, was I ever so wrong. By listening to the advice of one of my close relatives, I got over myself and made the appointment, with absolutely no expectations. When we met Dawn and saw the facilities it was love at first sight. The banquet room was gorgeous, it had afire place and the 90 degree angle of windows, which gave it that personal feel (not conference room like), the tent was amazing with chandeliers and drapery (not a pitched up tent, like at other venues), the tent was built on right off of the banquet room and then there was the ceremony space, right off the tent (a perfect flow) a beautiful outside with so many flowers and a gazebo! The venue was so perfect, if it rained (which it did not) I would be OK with having the ceremony in the tent space, that says a lot when I refused to get married inside. Now that is the venue! Lets get to the staff, our coordinator was Dawn. She was amazing to work with and helped me with all the little details and all the steps. I work full/all the time and planning a wedding should be really stressful. Dawn made me feel at ease and was always there to remind me of my next steps. So much so that I had everything I needed (guestbook, place cards, wedding favors etc.) dropped off to her the Wednesday before our big day. She even checked my champagne flutes and anything glass to make sure there were no cracks or damages! I can't thank her enough. And now for the wedding day its self! I was able to drop of everything (dress, shoes, etc.) before getting my hair done so everything was ready when I arrived. When I arrived, was I ever so lucky, Dawn and Lisa were both there to make sure my whole day ran smoothly and it did. All timing was perfect so that we still could enjoy our evening, even Lisa sat us down and made us eat (from what I hear most brides do not get to enjoy that luxury)! It was the most beautiful day. Now, lastly the guests, unless no one is telling me, I have had only great things said from the ceremony, food and reception. We have been married just over a month and family and friends still are raving me and complimenting me that I could not have picked a better venue. And now to all the brides to be, most importantly to me was cost, my husband and I had some help, but most of the cost was on us. I wanted the mansion venue, where I would have had to provide everything, tables, chairs linens!!! Penn Oaks, included all the food all the drinks, cake and centerpieces and most importantly came with Dawn!, if anything Penn Oaks needs to raise their prices for all that is included!!! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you to everyone at Penn Oaks! Ladies, please do not do what I did and ignore this venue! Take a chance, I did and would not change a think about our wedding day!
Dawn and the staff at Penn Oaks did a phenomenal job for our May 2014 wedding! From the initial consultation to the final farewell, my husband, family, and I were treated like VIP. Dawn was wonderful to work with-she was often times the one to check in with me to make sure that I was feeling ok and stress free, versus the other way around. She catered to my many requests, and didn't bat an eye when I brought in boxes and boxes of decorations just a few days before the event! The day of the wedding couldn't have gone more smoothly- the back patio was opened for cocktail hour and dancing, the food was delicious, and we got to dance the night away under the tent versus constantly worrying whether or not everything was taken care of. For months after, our guests have continually commented on how it was one of the best weddings that they have been to. Thank you Dawn and Penn Oaks for making our day both relaxed and memorable!
Our wedding was everything we dreamt of thanks to Dawn and the staff at Penn Oaks! They went above and beyond to ensure our special day was absolutely perfect! Dawn took extra special care on every detail and it was very evident as everything flowed smoothly and timely allowing a night full of dancing! The food was fabulous! Guest are still commenting on how wonderful everything tasted and how beautiful the room looked! Dawn's experience and keen eye for event planning helped make my wedding day a fairy tale. Thank you Dawn and the staff at Penn Oaks Golf Club!
I had my ceremony and reception at Penn Oaks and it was the most perfect day! Dawn Claffey was my wedding coordinator and she did everything and anything to make my day perfect! She was patient with me and always there for me if I had any questions for her. She truly is a wedding expert!! The venue is absolutely beautiful and everything I could have imagined for my big day. The food was delicious and the staff was so helpful especially Dawn. I still get so many compliments on how amazing everything was. I recommend Penn Oaks to every engaged couple I come across, and tell them how amazing Dawn was and how helpful she is!
We had both our ceremony and reception on site at Penn Oaks, and were very happy with the services! We booked the location over a year in advance and worked the Carina the entire way through. She was absolutely wonderful! From every detail question, emails, phone calls, several meetings, accommodating our every need- she was always on point. We worked it out so that my bridesmaids, mother and I could get ready on-site all day which helped allow the day go completely stress free. I was especially appreciative of the attention to detail. As the months and weeks grew closer, we met a number of times on site to go over details, to meet with the photographer, to set up the tables and to drop off the wedding items in advance. I felt completely at ease with the coordination of our entire wedding day in Carina's hands. Our wedding was on a Saturday and there was a wedding the night before and the day after. You would have never known. I felt like they were completely on top of all our needs, even ones I didn't think I would have. Carina also worked it out so that we could have the rehearsal practice the day before, without interrupting the get up of the wedding that evening. On the day of, my husband and I did not see each other until the ceremony and we were very limited on time to get photos done between the ceremony and the reception. Since Carina and our photographer met weeks before the wedding date, the two were very on top of keeping the process on schedule which consisted of a number of large family photos and with our large bridal party. We couldn't have asked for a better person to work with. Our guests had an amazing time, commented on how great the service and the food was, and how beautiful the location was. We are so happy with how everything turned out, and I honestly was completely relaxed the entire time, which was a great feeling! I highly recommend selecting Penn Oaks for any or all of your wedding needs.
My husband and I got married at Penn Oaks Golf Club in May 2014 and thanks to our wedding coordinator Lori we had the most perfect wedding! Not only is the venue gorgeous, but the staff was so helpful and accommodating! Lori helped us with every detail of our wedding and even created our specialty drink to match our color scheme when I couldn't come up with anything. Our ceremony was outside and the scenery was so breathtaking we didn't even need to decorate the space.
The food for both the cocktail hour and the reception was amazing! I am still getting compliments from our guests about how much they liked the food!
Penn Oaks exceeded my expectations ten fold! The entire planning process was flawless. Penn Oaks and their staff take away all the stress of planning! The food was excellent and Lisa and Carina made sure our wedding was right on schedule. They came up to myself, the groom and our families to make sure everything was okay and made sure we ate and always were willing to go the extra mile for us! I highly recommend this venue. Not only was the food and venue perfect, Penn Oaks also included the delicious cake and beautiful honeymoon suite!
Penn Oaks was one of a zillion places I looked at online that I really liked & the 3rd place that I visited in person. As soon as we walked in, I loved it! We met with Carina-who from the start-was awesome. The venue itself it beautiful & allowed us to do many things! Carina was incredibly accomadating & very easy to get ahold of leading up to our wedding! We had both our ceremony & our reception there. They have a bridal suite attached to the women's restroom & we used that as a kids room-which was awesome! The club is still open to members while you are there but I found every one I encountered to be very nice. Lisa was there for the majority of our reception & she was amazing! At the end of the night when it was time to gather everything up-her & her team had it done in about 20 minutes...and I had a ton of stuff there! They were so incredibly professional. At one point, my BIL's dinner was taken away because he had not yet eaten it & when he noticed and said something, they brought a new one right back out. The food was very good and I think everything is reasonably priced. I do wish there had been a little more flexibility on their part with some of the pricing but I also am well aware that it is a business and any bride would have taken my day in a heartbeat.
Overall we were so incredibly happy with them from start to finish..they made everything very easy and enjoyable leading up to our wedding and the day was amazing! We are so glad we went with Penn Oaks! I highly recommend it!
The venue was such a nice place to get marreid. Our wedding coordinator, Carina, did an excellent job making it stress free for me!
Penn Oaks Golf Club was the perfect wedding venue! We were able to get married outside and it was absolutely beautiful!! The grounds are well kept. The staff was helpful before we even booked! Christina was helpful during the entire wedding planning process and so patient. The day of, the staff was amazing and so attentive to both my husband, me, and the guests!! Food was excellent in preparation and taste. Guests were impressed by the stations offered during cocktail hour and by the cheesecake station during dessert. The outside area for cocktail hour was awesome. I would pick Penn Oaks again in a heart beat!! Definitely recommend!!
