We initially looked at Shack a year before our wedding and loved it the moment we walked in the door. The dance floor is HUGE, there are a bunch of options for bar locations, the patio was a great size, our food tasting was delicious and the staff was so accommodating. Robin and... Read More Rakesh were awesome and replied to any questions very quickly via email throughout the whole process. The day of was absolutely perfect. We got to the country club and had golf carts waiting for us to go out to take pictures. Cocktail hour had great food. Robin and Rakesh made sure everything was how we wanted it and people are still raving about our day! We made a great choice by having our wedding at Shackamaxon :)

We fell in love with Shackamaxon the moment we saw it! We both wanted a beautiful golf course venue for our reception and just knew the Shack was the perfect place to celebrate our marriage! The entire team at Shackamaxon is there to make sure your wedding day is the perfect... Read More day. Robin was amazing at coordinating all the little details at putting our reception together and making the room look beautiful! I had a lot of little things decor wise and she did such a wonderful job putting it all together and I truly appreciated it! When we arrived after the ceremony, we all got to hop in golf carts and ride around the golf course to take the most beautiful pictures with our bridal party. Cocktail hour was in the grill room and outside patio and all our guests raved about it! The seafood bar was a big hit! Rakesh and the catering team at Shackamaxon were amazing and did such a great job all night - all our guests were so impressed with everything! Shackamaxon was our number one choice for our wedding day and gave us the wedding of our dreams - and more! We both could not be more thankful! Highly recommended this venue!

What a fantastic place to hold a wedding reception! My husband and I fell in love with Shackamaxon the first time we visited through the personalized touch from the entire staff. Everyone was so friendly and helpful - and they gave us homemade potato chips that were delicious!... Read More Chiara was absolutely wonderful and always available to talk to. Our guests were delighted by the service they received the night of our wedding. The servers and captain were absolutely amazing, catering to every need of our guests. And how could I forget the food! Everything was absolutely delicious! I couldn't get over how smoothly everything went, and how accommodating Shackamaxon was to us and our guests. I would absolutely recommend this venue to anyone who is planning a wedding. Everything was perfect, and I wouldn't change a thing. Thank you so much, Chiara, for making our special day the start of our happily ever after! :)

Solid value

After lots of research, we felt very confident in picking the Shack for our wedding. The venue is set on a beautiful golf course and the ballroom is modern. The wedding package is affordable, yet offers a wider range of options than your typical and similarly priced wedding... Read More package. Our guests raved about the quality of the food at our wedding and were impressed by the staff. Each table was assigned a waiter who also took table side drink orders. Chiara was always available and worked with us throughout the year leading up to our wedding. Unfortunately, the week before our wedding, we stopped by the Shack to see the venue set up for another wedding and were in total shock when we saw the golf course under construction. We were upset because up until that point we had no idea about the impending construction that would take place and be apparent on the day of our wedding. Luckily, we spoke with the GM and he was accommodating and apologetic. Even though the view wasn't what we thought it would be, we don't regret our decision to have our wedding at the Shack and they stood by their service and quality.

Amazing Wedding!!

Excellent Venue, Excellent Food, Excellent Service

My husband and I were thrilled that we chose SCC to host our wedding. The grounds and facilities are beautiful, the food was amazing, and the staff went ABOVE AND BEYOND to make our wedding wonderful. Our pictures on the grounds came out amazing. Our guests had a great time on... Read More the patio during the cocktail hour and dancing in the ballroom. We chose the place principally because we were excited about the menu and we were not disappointed. Everyone could not stop talking about how great the food was. And the staff was amazing from the start of the process through to our communications with them after the wedding. An example of how great the staff is -- the shuttle carrying half of our guests arrived significantly late to the cocktail hour and, although SCC has nothing to do with the shuttle company, SCC's event coordinator (Lauren Lucas) seamlessly worked with us to extend the cocktail hour and streamline the serving of the first course once we got into the ballroom so that we did not feel like we lost out on the beginning of our party. What could have been a huge downer at the beginning of the night was remedied by thoughtfulness, quick thinking and flexibility on the part of SCC. Having been to 20+ weddings before having our own -- we felt that we got great value for our money at SCC.
