We recently got married at the Valley Forge Casino. Everything the day of was perfect & best part was my husband and I did not have to worry about a thing. Our wedding coordinator, Terri, made sure we didn't miss any details while planning for our big day & the VFC staff did a great job taking care of all the little details the bride & groom shouldn't have to worry about the day of your wedding. The venue room was gorgeous and all of our guests had nothing but great things to say about it. From the overall appearance to the amazing food served. Our maître D, John, was awesome. He made the night flow smooth & really took care of us and our bridal party throughout the night. My husband and I would highly recommend the Valley Forge Casino to any future bride & groom!!
I am honored to be writing a review about Valley Forge Casino Resort and our wonderful Wedding Specialist, Nicole Vinci. Originally we were going to get married at a different venue and even gave them a deposit, and for several reasons we just weren’t comfortable with them and started to read about Valley Forge Casino Resort’s Wedding Packages, including the outstanding florists and bakers they have listed as preferred vendors. At first I was a little hesitant about having our ceremony and reception at a casino, but after we visited there, and learned about all they offer, we knew this was the perfect place for us! Nicole went above and beyond to ensure the vision we had for our ceremony and reception came to life. She was quick to reply and follow-thru on everything we needed and requested. We had a very unusual request to place a huge paper flower wall backdrop that I spent months making in the reception room. When I told her about the flower wall, she wanted to understand all of the elements involved to ensure nothing would go wrong and it would indeed be the focal point of the reception, and it was. I’ll always be grateful to her for that! We also worked with Taylor Osorio, who was lovely, helpful and hands on at the rehearsal, ceremony and reception. They handled things from start to finish without a glitch. People still rave about the food – and after our first food tasting, we both made it a point to enjoy our fabulous meal (we highly recommend the crab encrusted tilapia)! The reception was amazing and all of the servers were incredible. We also had Tasha as our own personal server during the reception and I have never seen anyone work so hard to make sure we were happy! She was great – and we will never forget her! Finally, let me say that I plan and run events for a living so naturally it’s very hard for me to let go and trust caterers/hotels when I’m on site. However, after we started working with Nicole and met other people at the hotel, it was very easy for us to just relax and enjoy our wedding day!
Our experience at the Radisson at the Valley Forge Casino was incredible, from start to finish. We worked with Terri and she was so accommodating and helpful. She was always there to answer my questions. I can not say enough about the food. Our guests loved it! We also used a lot of the preferred vendors that Valley Forge offered. We were so pleased with each vendor that we used. Claude was our maitre d for the night of the wedding and he was awesome. We had a lot of guests come from out of town and they stayed overnight in the hotel. The guests were all located in the same block. They c0uld not say enough about how much fun they had at the Valley Forge Casino Resort and they are already planning another trip to come back!! Breakfast the next morning was delicious! I am definitely recommending the Radisson at the Valley Forge Casino to my newly engaged friends!
We wanted to get married and have our reception all in one location and this was perfect. We booked the "Venue" and loved every minute of it. We got married on stage and held cocktail hour upstairs and back downstairs for the reception. If you are looking for a one stop shop this is it! Terry was amazing to work with and was there for every question we had. She was so supportive and made our day fabulous. The staff through out the night went above and beyond to make our day wonderful! Our guests loved that once they checked in they did not have to worry about transportation and could just enjoy. lfthemselves.
In November my daughter and son-in-law had their wedding reception in the Grand Ballroom. Terri, our wedding consultant, was fantastic. She guided us through the whole process. She responded to our emails quickly and researched any special requests we had. The day of the wedding went so smoothly. She covered every detail for us. We were able to enjoy the evening. The decor was breath taking and the food was amazing. We are still getting compliments from our guests about the reception. I highly recommend Valley Forge. Thank you Terri for making our daughter's reception everything she dreamed of.
Our wedding turned out to be absolutely perfect. We did go through some difficulty (our first wedding coordinator left the company a few months into planning) and we were transitioned to another wedding coordinator, and to a third after that. That said, Nicole Vinci, our third and final coordinator, was absolutely fantastic and did a great job of handling details, coordinating room changes, liaising with the casino's restaurant operations for our rehearsal dinner, fielding last minute requests from out of state family, and taking all of our crazy calls and concerns and turning them into a gorgeous ceremony and one of the most fluid and fun receptions I've ever seen, let alone had the honor of being the groom at. Nicole stepped up big time at a point where we were already tired of working with a wedding coordinator and really made an effort that was above and beyond to make our special day extra special. Our wedding went off without a hitch - everything was properly set up by the resort's staff and I only heard glowing reviews from other guests. We knew exactly what to expect from start to finish and were pleased with every little detail. The catering staff and maitre d' did an excellent job of moving things around smoothly and I felt that everything was elegant and seamless - as you'd hope! We felt that the value at the casino was also very appealing and that the services offered really simplified the wedding process for us. Despite the agitation of losing a few coordinators (in the process of attaining a really good one!), we found that it was really beneficial to have a Nicole to speak with about concerns and questions, and the fact that her services were included in the package was a definite plus. Overall, we couldn't be happier, and we were extraordinarily glad that we had our wedding at Valley Forge Casino Resort and that we were able to work with Nicole and the other fine staff at the resort to host our special day. From the bottom of our newly-wedded hearts, thank you all so much!
Overall experience with The Radisson Valley Forge was amazing. Terri was the best made everything very seamless from start to finish!!!
Terri and staff were great! Our big day turned out just as we had hoped! Thank you so much
The Venue was beautiful! The staff was friendly and Terri was just wonderful throughout the whole planning.
We recently had our wedding at the VF casino in the Waterford room. It was wonderful! The food, set up, and staff were great! Everything was great and for a very reasonable price. I would definitely recommend the VF casino for a wedding!!
Our wedding was in the Grand Ballroom at the Radisson at the Valley Forge Casino in February of 2016. We are so happy to have chosen the Radisson at the Valley Forge Casino for our wedding venue. Everything went exactly as planned and all of the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Of particular note were our Wedding Specialist Danielle and Vince our maitre d'. Both of them were extremely easy to work with and made sure our day was special. We were able to fully customize our menu with items more to our style and everything was delicious and executed perfectly. The open bar was well stocked and the bartenders were friendly. We would not hesitate to recommend this venue to anyone considering it!
We had WEDDING CRASHERS and security did nothing about it even after we told them they were not welcome guests. Our wedding coordinator called out sick day of the wedding and her replacement was overheard talking poorly about my husband and I when we were upset this happened. The food served was not what we had at the tasting and the vegans and those with allergies were not accommodated like they said they would be. However the actual venue space itself was beautiful and we still had a lot of fun with our guests despite all the negative things that happened. Still the best day of my life but I would warn future brides to be aware of the crashers especially!!

Emily was awesome! Super helpful throughout the year of planning. Great service and the BEST day of our lives. Good value especially if you are having 200+ people.
Perfect PackageReviewed on 11/19/2014 Jennifer L
We had a very good experience with the Valley Forge Casino and Raddison hotel! They were very affordable and with a Sunday discount we were able receive a wedding package that included an incredible amount of services for under $100 per person! Although there were some changes with who our planner was going to be, not really sure why still even after the event, the venue was able to remain professional and I felt as though I was still taken care of by all who were involved. By the time the wedding came around all issues were resolved and Emily, the planner that we came to know as our own, was absolutely wonderful. She handled anything and everything that we asked. She made sure that all my requests were met and she even held all ceremony and reception items a whole week before the event so that there was less pressure! I cannot thank Valley Forge enough for what they did for my husband and I. We had a perfect wedding filled with beautiful details and a great staff!
Turnover of 4 Planners = Low RatingReviewed on 11/01/2014
They have high turnover on their wedding party planners. We went through 4. Less than two months before or wedding we got girl #3. Then two weeks before our wedding girl #4. They never had things together. Plans that should have been settled weeks ago didn't get finalized until two days before my event. Talk about stress. They treated us haphazardly. Girl #3 never answered my questions and girl #4 had too much on her plate to make everything right. The venue is perfect but they need to be consistent with the service coordinator. Best of luck.
Beautiful WeddingReviewed on 6/27/2014 Jamie K
I had my wedding at the Radisson Valley Forge, part of the Valley Forge Casino Resort. The wedding was absolutely phenomenal and could not have been any more perfect. Erin Crofchick was the greatest and most accomodating wedding specialist a anxious bride could ask for. The only downfall is the lack of communication among the different departments at the radisson. I encourage couples to have their wedding at the Radisson but please be very precise and pay a lot of attention to detail in regards to the finances. If you do not keep track of the totals due on your own (keep your receipts for proof), they would definitely have you paying double or more. The financial and billing department are a bit incompetent in this area. Regardless of this downfall, I was very pleased with the Radisson.
Wonderful!Reviewed on 2/23/2014 Krista
We had our January 18, 2014 wedding in the Grand Ballroom at VF casino resort & there isn't much more that I can say other than amazing!! We started out working with Monica who was wonderful & when she left the casino finished our journey with Erin. I can't say enough about the wedding coordinators & how hard they worked to make not only our wedding day but my bachelorette party all huge successes. VF casino resort is a one-spot shop-they supplied the catering, set up & break down, etc. They have a list of proffered vendors who if you chose those vendors you get discounts or services included from the package your currently paying at VF. Example: our cake was covered under what we already paid at the casino all we had to do was pick flavors! We dropped off our things the day before the wedding & they set up the most beautiful reception area I could ever imagine. Our guests loved the ability to stay the night (it's safe-no drinking and driving) and the complimentary access to the bar and casino after the wedding. The party didn't end until the wee hours of the morning! The food was delicious the staff were amazing.. I have not one complaint. Our year of planning with the coordinators and staff was easy & painless-exactly what I wanted. I HIGHLY recommend the valley forge casino for a wonderful, painless, outstanding experience during your planning & wedding day. They really go above and beyond to make their brides happy.
Great Place!!!Reviewed on 6/13/2013 Tracey H
My husband and I had our reception in the Grand Ballroom at the Radisson. On the day of everything went super smooth. Lenni who was with us from cocktail hour until the end of the night was great and very attentive. I was a little nervous after we booked the Radisson when I found out that Clem was no longer there, but when I finally met Lindsay she was great and very helpful. Everyone said how great the staff and the food was. All around great job.
Go Wild!Reviewed on 4/27/2013 Angela G
Not sure how much it all cost because my Bridesmaids took care of my surpise bachelorette party;however, from what I have found out....it's worth it :) From the casino floor to Dueces Wild, the Valley Forge Resort has a variety of fun. We had reserved seating wherever we went and my girls were even allowed to decorate the reserved sections beforehand. I had a blast and my girls did too!
Wonderful experienceReviewed on 12/29/2012 Heather B
We had an amazing wedding in the Grand Ballroom at the Radisson! Lindsay was wonderful! I'm still receiving compliments on how wonderful everything was from the servers to the food. The only glitches were dealing with the hotel staff.
Best Night EverReviewed on 8/01/2012 Rachael E
What a great place to have a bachelorette. There are restaurants, clubs, gambling all in one place! Noone had to drive and we were able to stay in the hotel so everyone was safe!
Absolutely Fantastic!Reviewed on 4/04/2012 Suzy R
The Radisson Valley Forge was the perfect place for our ceremony and reception. Our coordinator at the Radisson, Clem, was fantastic. He was helpful and patient and very knowledgeable. You can tell he really cares about his job and about each wedding and couple he works with. He made the planning process so much easier and less stressful. The staff at the Radisson during the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception were wonderful beyond our expectations. They really know what they are doing! I received many compliements from guests about how wonderful the hotel staff were - which can really make a difference in the experience your guests have! The food was fantastic and plentiful. We had about 135 guests at our wedding. There was enough food to keep everyone very satisfied and the quality was great. I just can't say enough about how glad my husband and I are that we had our ceremony and recption at the Radisson and that we had Clem as our coordinator. I would defintely recommend the Radisson to anyone for their wedding or other special event!!

Bravo to Clem and the Staff at the Radisson!!!Reviewed on 9/12/2011 Becca F
Clem and the staff at the Radisson did a fantastic job. My husband and I felt comfortable and taken care of before, during, and after our wedding. They made sure all the guests were treated as kings and queens for the night. They were willing to work within our budget to make sure our wedding was everything we dreamed of and more!!!
