Words From Our Brides & Party Planners

"I just wanted to send a huge thank you to you guys and everyone at Pheasant Run. My wedding was absolutely perfect and everyone I talked to went above and beyond the normal compliments when talking about the entire experience. The staff was friendly and took care of everyone so well. The speed and smooth transitions from place to place was flawless and was it's own experience. We had such a wonderful time from the start of this process to the end and you guys along with Steve were really just the best. So thank you from Frank and I and from all our families.Thank you for giving me a stress free and beautiful wedding day."

- India Marie Paul

The wedding coordination was well planned and organized. Everything happened on time and the staff was helpful and friendly.

- Shannon, Married 9/1/2019

We cannot say enough great things about how wonderful our experience with Pheasant Run was from the very beginning of booking them, throughout our whole process, even until the day after our wedding! Debbie Fields was who we worked with hand in hand, and she was simply the best, so accommodating and really on top of her game!  She answered all of our questions, and made us feel very at ease with the entire planning process. She was right there to help us all the way. From our beautiful lakeside Ceremony, to an awesome cocktail hour and a wonderful reception, our guests were simply Wowed! We received so many compliments even months after our wedding. The food is fantastic, and the drinks were great! The service was perfect and the bartenders were so much fun-even our guests complimented on how much fun they were! We honestly couldn't have had a better experience and would definitely choose Pheasant Run for our wedding day all over again!

- Karen McQuillin

George and I only looked at two locations as options for our wedding venue. The Pheasant Run was the first location that we viewed. From the moment we had our first meeting and tour we knew this was the perfect place for our special day. We could not pass up getting married outside by the pond with the fountain going off, then having cocktail hour on Bourbon Street, and finishing the night by celebrating in the New Orleans Ballroom. The room was spacious and it had a huge bar and a balcony that our guests could use. We had the luxury of working with two different coordinators Fay Ander and Debbie Fields during our wedding planning process. They both were very outgoing, professional, and great at communicating with us throughout the entire process. I was updated when new guests booked their rooms and was updated on if we needed to block more rooms. It was nice that I was able to bring in my decorations and all the accessories for the wedding earlier so I didn't have to stress about forgetting anything important. All I had to do was tell Debbie my vision of how I wanted the ceremony and cocktail hour to look like. When our big day arrived we were amazed at how beautiful the ceremony space outside was and how perfectly Debbie and her staff decorated Bourbon Street and the Ballroom. The food was fantastic and the staff made the day perfect. I was already ecstatic on how the day and night went and I didn't think anything else could make it better until one of the servers came up to us and said that our wedding is one of the best ones that she has seen at the Pheasant Run. That compliment meant the world to us and we knew that all our hard work had paid off and everybody was satisfied.  Thank you to all the staff and personnel at the Pheasant Run for being professional, friendly, and amazing at your job!

- Alyssa Dollar

Thank you Pheasant Run for making our wedding turn out more perfect than we could have ever imagined. The Resort and Staff were exceptional in providing guidance and support through our entire planning process and wedding day. Our friends and family are still commenting on how beautiful our wedding was and we could not have done without you! We are forever grateful!

- The Carlsons

 Everything was better than i could imagine 

From the first call to check out, Debbie made sure everything was smooth. Her and her staff were great and super accommodating. Debbie even upgraded our banquet hall at no extra charge. I honestly couldn't even tell you all the things that made our wedding perfect or how Debbie was the best. 

- Alexandria

My husband and I had our wedding at Pheasant Run on 10/12/18 and it was AMAZING! I cannot say enough good things about the staff, particularly Debbie Fields who coordinated our wedding with us from the very start, and Lori, one of the servers at our wedding who gave 110% all weekend long. They, as well as all the other staff, were truly what made our wedding amazing! Cocktail hour on Bourbon Street and the reception in the New Orleans Ballroom were perfect. The food was outstanding. I had a lot of guests tell me how good the food was, and the quantity of food was overwhelming Nobody left our wedding hungry! I'm sure our wedding day would have been great anywhere, but I really feel that Pheasant Run and their wonderful staff are what made it better than I'd ever hoped. Thank you!

- Stephanie Justen

Wonderful Wedding Experience
Debbie was attentive, knowledgeable, and kind throughout the entire wedding planning process. She guided us with our decisions by letting us know all of our options in detail before a decision had to be made. She was easy to work with, paid attention to every detail, and responded quickly to every email!

- Missy Mollica, Married 9/29/2018

Our Wedding Ceremony & Reception we're in Pheasant Run's New Orleans Ballroom which was beautiful, elegant and spacious. We loved the stage for our Wedding Ceremony & Entertainment. Bourbon Street was where we had our Cocktails & Hors D'oeurves, which was amazing! The staff, France, CEO, to Director of Catering, Debbie, and staff, are fantastic! Our experience was excellent!

- Debra

Wow, where to I even begin?!...
We want to give you such a big THANK YOU and HUG!!! THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!!! We honestly couldn't have asked for anything more! Debbie, Steve, the entire staff, the whole venue exceeded our dreams and expectations in every way possible! 
Every single detail and moment was beautiful, everything came together perfectly, and you were such a joy to work with! We've just been in awe by the beauty of the entire day. I can't thank you enough for your attention to detail and how helpful you were every step of the day. I can't tell you enough how much I mean it when I say you made so many parts of the planning process and the weekend/day itself seem so painless and easy. Who would have thought that you could use those two words when describing planning a wedding? Thank you for being there to answer every question, phone call, and email. Thank you for being willing to meet in person and talk things over with me, our families, and vendors. Thank you for being so open minded to our ideas and thoughtfully guiding us through every step of the process. You turned my questions into confident, worry-less solutions. You always said "I got it!" and you meant it. I was always pleasantly surprised by your willingness to help. And I don't mean surprised because I didn't expect you to be helpful, I mean surprised because we didn't know what to expect throughout this process and we were willing to have to do a lot of things our selves. So thank you for taking even more off our plates than we expected and executing everything beautifully and perfectly! You truly took care of everything as if it was your own wedding. 
Steve, and his service staff were so nice, friendly and helpful. Our guests, family, and us were wow'ed by amazing food, service, and overall experience. It was so thoughtful for the bartender to come to our head table during dinner and take our drink orders knowing that we wouldn't have a chance to get up and get it ourselves. It's those kinds of details that we always covered and really made a huge impact on our experience. Steve could not have been more hospitable! He also had the "I got it!" attitude and always went above and beyond. He thought of what we would need before we even thought of it ourselves or asked for it. We truly appreciate his thoughtfulness and attention to detail as well! 
We are so so grateful! Saying thank you will never be enough. We cherish our time spent with you and wish you, your team, and your family nothing but the best! We hope our paths cross again in the future! 

- Danielle & Eric

Just wanted to let you know everything came off perfectly Sunday.  The rooms were fantastic with the direct access to the patio and the pool! The pool was perfect the water was the perfect temperature. Sunday afternoon was definitely the way to go in terms of the crowd. Your catering employees were excellent! - efficient, helpful and very nice. Everything was laid out perfectly. The food was very good. Served appropriately and plentiful. Everybody had a wonderful time. Thank you very much. Look forward to her second birthday! 

- Mark

Debbie was everything we could have asked for and more. The Pheasant Run blew our guests away with the amenities they offered to their guests. The catering team and Debbie made us feel like we were the only thing that mattered which was important. I did my best to keep my requests simple but I for sure felt like I could "get whatever I wanted" if I asked. They never once were hard to coordinate with, they offer great wedding packages that include food and cake (we did the Exquisite package) which meant two less vendors to look for. We were there for a long time pre and post wedding and I never felt rushed or bothered. We got ready in the Arnold Palmer Room which was nice and Debbie directed everyone for our outdoor ceremony which I appreciated how involved she was for all aspects of the day. We had cocktail hour on Bourbon Street which was beautiful. The food was great, the bartenders were great, and they helped us pull off an amazing wedding that our guests still can't stop raving about weeks later! We look forward to returning for an anniversary stay!

- Madeline

"I want to thank you and all the Pheasant Run staff for an AMAZING day and night.  From the first minute to the last we experienced the best in customer service. You are awesome at your job and really know how to keep brides calm, follow through on your word and deliver. All night and day today we've been getting nothing but rave reviews of the night, especially on the salmon."

- Jackie and Phil

"Pheasant Run (PR) went over and beyond in hosting our daughter's wedding in August of 2017. Debbie Fields, Director of Catering, was a true delight to work with.  From the first consultation to the wedding weekend, Debbie was always right there with a smile and a "why not, I don't see why we can't do that" attitude!  My daughter had a vision of bringing an outdoor environment inside with a ceiling panel of greenery and flowers topped off with lanterns and Edison lights.  This had not been done at PR before and Debbie with that positive attitude made our daughter's creativity come to life.  Along with Debbie, we had the great privilege of working with Steve Meggos, Banquet Manager, who was involved from the planning months up until the end of the Reception making sure all expectations were met!  Brittany, new with PR was awesome to work with - we wish you great success with PR and truly believe you will be an asset to the resort. Pheasant Run, 2 thumbs up on having Debbie, Steve and Brittany coordinating wedding events. When things started getting a little hectic before the ceremony they came in with a calm, cool and collected attitude and smoothed out the kinks which was so appreciated by the crazed bride and mother of the bride. Thank you Debbie, Steve and Brittany for providing an optimistic attitude with heart felt kindness all rolled in with true professionalism throughout this beautiful event.  

A big shout out to staff workers Ting, Marlene, Donna, Lori, Stasha, Teresa, April, Janis and Donna who worked the reception and Sunday Brunch.  We had so many compliments on the dinner - the food was delicious.  Again, two thumbs up PR with your staff on board!  

We had many guests who were coming in from other states and PR was the perfect venue where our guests could stay at one location for the weekend and provide the wedding ceremony, reception and Sunday brunch for our daughter's wedding. When our guests were not involved with wedding events the resort offered great entertainment and amenities to keep our guests having a good time. 

We would highly recommend PR as a wedding venue because the employees were so instrumental and fun to work with in making our daughter's wedding a success. With PR you get a lot of bang for your buck - it's affordable for guests and there's no lack of entertainment.

- Stacey R

"My husband and I only looked at 2 venues. The first one was Pheasant Run and we only looked at another one because we thought we had to just to solidify the fact that loved Pheasant Run immediately. We worked with Debbie Fields and she was great! Very great at communicating with me, extremely responsive, and always friendly. There were plenty of options for the day of regarding food, booze, decorations, etc. What I loved about Pheasant Run was having everything be in one place: ceremony, reception, and overnight accommodations. People showed up, parked, and didn't see their car until the next morning! The fact that we didn't have to deal with transportation or a caterer or rental place was perfect. The week of the wedding, we had our final appointment where I dropped off all of the decorations, guest book, cake topper, escort cards, etc. It was such a load off being able to drop that off and not have to worry! The day came and we used the Arnold Palmer room as my bridal suite. It was a great, large space for me and the girls to get our hair and makeup done. It was also a great location, right off of the elevators, near a bar, and we could see right outside to wear the ceremony was going to be. Debbie was there to get everyone where they needed to be to line up for the wedding. It went so smoothly and having a ceremony outside (lakeside) was GORGEOUS. Warning though: Pheasant Run patrons at the pool will absolutely be guests at your ceremony. People at the pool turned their chairs around and watched. They were quiet though, so no complaints there! The reception turned out great. We didn't get to experience cocktail hour because we were taking pictures, but from what I heard, it was fun! The New Orleans Bourbon Street area was so cute and full of character. The first time I saw the room (New Orleans Ballroom) was when our DJ announced us. I spent the first 5 minutes sitting in my seat just smiling and looking at all of the details. I was so over-the-moon happy. All of the stuff I dropped off earlier in the week was exactly where I wanted it to be. Pheasant Run turned my dream wedding into a reality. Such a seamless process and great execution. I recommend it to anyone and everyone!"

- Cristin Hovinen

"Pheasant run was such a beautiful place to get married so many beautiful pictures and Debbie did a great job making everything was OK and good ...the food was phenomenal everyone loved the choices they made..definitely recommend this place to have your wedding :)"

- Veronica and Jeremy Bentham

"My husband and I loved Pheasant Run from the start. We were looking for a one-stop shop (ceremony site, reception, hotel) and Pheasant Run is all of the above. We worked with Debbie Fields and she was fantastic. Super responsive and supportive. She helped make our day seamless. We had a final appointment the week of the wedding where we turned in decorations and details and it was such a relief. As soon as that was turned over, it was in their hands. They set everything up for us. It truly was perfect and I'm so grateful. It was the best day of our lives and I have Pheasant Run to thank for that! Highly recommend!"

- Cristin

"We wanted to extend a big 'THANK YOU' to you and the rest of the Pheasant Run staff for making our daughter's wedding reception exceptional. All of the staff were friendly and very accommodating! From setting the date with PR, you have walked us through each and every step to make it seem effortless. The venue was extraordinary with the cocktail hour in Bourbon Street to the unveiling of the New Orleans Ballroom for the reception. Every little detail for the presentation was attended to to the 'T.' It looked amazing! The menu was exquisite too. From the appetizers, soup, salad, all 5 entrees, to the coffee station, they were all superb. We only heard rave reviews! Pheasant Run exceeded our expectations. We are certainly glad we booked our daughter's wedding with PR. We cannot thank you enough!"

- Scott & Denise Hickey

"I would like to thank you both and everyone else at Pheasant Run that made our wedding reception on Saturday (3/4/2017) run so smooth. We were very happy with everything. We got a lot of compliments from our guests on the food as well. ... Thank You!"

- Nichole Hope

This past weekend (10/21/-10/22/16, we celebrated our daughter's wedding at Pheasant Run Resort. We started bright and early with a golf outing hosting 44 guests for a round of golf and lunch. The course was in excellent shape our guests enjoyed the event. Onto the rehearsal dinner…. we had a number of guests coming in from out of town and so we had a large group joining us. We settled on pizza and a beer and wine package for the bar. Everyone enjoyed the evening event and again the staff made all of our guests feel welcome. The hotel accommodations were outstanding as well. We had over 60 rooms booked by guests and most stayed in the tower and enjoyed the recently remodeled rooms! The main event was Saturday. The wedding itself took place in our church in DeKalb. We had a 3 hour wait between the service and cocktail hour. Our guests we made very comfortable and entertained by the wonderful staff at the resort. We started the cocktail hour on Bourbon Street. Two bars open, butler passed hourdeorves, a huge spear of additional treats lined the center of the street and the party was on. At seven o'clock the doors to the New Orleans Ballroom were opened and our guests were invited in. What a wonderful dinner we all enjoyed. We could not have asked for better food, better service or better atmosphere! Everything was perfect!! What made this event so wonderful….? the people at Pheasant Run. Starting with the wedding coordinator Debbie Fields! Deb did a great job in explaining the different packages, in helping us establish a time line as we began planning in January and she helped us keep calm and cool while going through the process of planning such a gala. Debbie took care of making arrangements for the entire weekend and let me say, she did not let us down. Debbie didn't do it alone!! Laurie Kirser, the Banquet manager was with us on Friday and Saturday to make certain that all details were taken care of and of course they were! We concluded our celebration with a brunch that…you guessed it Debbie Fields planned. Once again, everything was AWESOME! If you are looking for a venue for a wedding or other major event…Call Debbie and get the ball rolling! You won't be disappointed! Thanks, Debbie and your staff for making our guests feel welcome and comfortable. My brother in law, Rick said it best on Sunday morning "You set a new standard for family weddings" My reply "Pheasant Run and Deb Fields set the standard, we were just along for the ride! Thanks for everything Pheasant Run!

We had our wedding this weekend at Pheasant Run. We had an absolute amazing time! Fay our wedding coordinator was phenomenal, she was key on the details and helped us every step of the way. We could not have asked for anyone better. The staff at the hotel was nothing but accommodating and helpful for us, our families and our friends. They made our night perfect, checking in on us, making sure we didn't need anything and keeping the night moving. We are very happy with everything that everyone did here for us. Thank you for adding the glue to keep all our wedding stuff going! Fay, you did an amazing job and we are so very grateful.

- Michelle & Sean 10/09/16

My name is Judi Lanza D'Amore. My husband and I recently got married at Pheasant Run on September 30th. I wanted to take the time to send you an email regarding Fay Ander. Let me begin with the word AMAZING. We were blessed to have met her and work with her for our wedding. My mom recently passed away in June and I can't begin to tell you how much Fay helped me out with everything, always willing and ready to help me out in any way that she could. Our original plans were to have our reception at Venuti's, but due to my mom's illness, we figured we would do something closer so we could bring her, but unfortunately she passed before the wedding. Whatever reason, God wanted us to be at Pheasant Run and both of us couldn't have been happier. Fay was always a step ahead of everything on the day of our wedding. And anything that was asked last minute she had control over without ever batting an eye at. Such a cool person to work with and know. We are truly grateful to have worked with Fay as well as all of your staff that evening including Steve. Many of our guests commented on the wonderful service and great food. All of the servers were incredible and very helpful. Our server always made sure we were ok and the lady bartender came up to us at our table to make sure we were set. A big thank you to all of you for you service and help on our special day. I ask that you please pass this along to all because they deserve to know what a truly amazing job they did. And as for Fay, she deserves a bonus or raise for what she does. I could not have asked for a better person to work with for my wedding. Pheasant Run is very lucky to have her as a part of their team.
Thank You to All,

- Judi & Domenick D'Amore 9/30/16

Debbie Fields was wonderful to work with. She kept on top of everything for us. The food was great and the wait staff was outstanding.

Ask many questions to see if Pheasant Run is the place for your wedding. It had everything and more that we needed and I could not have been more satisfied. Fay was remarkable and calmly led us through the process and was so patient.

- Nora 8/6/2016

Fay is exceptional and truly amazing. She made the entire process so much easier and enjoyable! She answered our million questions right away and was there every step of the way!!!! I would recommend anyone to have their wedding here!

- Janelle 8/6/2016

I was astounded when I found out how inexpensive a wedding at Pheasant Run can be. But the real surprise was how hardworking, accommodating, pleasurable the entire staff was at the Pheasant Run. Debbie Fields was an amazing coordinator and an absolute pleasure to work with. Our wedding and reception (both held at Pheasant Run) were far more amazing then we had ever envisioned. We can't wait for our complimentary dinner and overnight stay on our first anniversary !! Tommy D. (Groom -July 3rd 2016 - Broadway Ballroom)

- Tommy D 7/24/2016

My fiance and I are getting married here in July and we have always dealt with Debbie Fields for all of our planning. She is absolutely AMAZING! We haven't even had our special day here yet and we know that it won't disappoint. Debbie has been nothing short of wonderful. So far she has accommodated anything and everything we have asked. The entire staff has always been professional to the point to where we asked if the server from our wedding food tasting will be serving at our wedding because she was a blast! I am so happy we have decided to go with them for our wedding. Nothing but great reviews to follow.

- Raelin Thorpe 4/23/16

Between the managers at Pheasant Run, the staff that served the dinner, and Fay Ander, our wedding reception could not have been more perfect! I cannot think of a single thing that could have been done to have made the day be better. Fay was awesome from the very start, very accommodating in every way, from decorations to explaining what needed to be where, what she needed from me, and when she needed it. Pheasant Run is a very well rounded reception venue with many attributes that contributed to the uniqueness! Our guests loved the pool, the arcade, and the discounted rate that they were able to get while stay at the hotel with the wedding party! The staff that served us during the reception was so friendly, very prompt, and had the utmost of professionalism. All of our courses were served quickly and the plates were taken away as soon as we needed them to. The food was also some of the best food that I have ever had, and many of my guests have told me the same.

- Kerrin 2/28/2016

Pheasant Run was very accommodating to our needs. Fay answered every single one our questions quickly and efficiently. Our wedding was more beautiful than we ever imagined. The service and the food were outstanding. We recieved a lot of compliments on how great the food was and my husband and I agree. I would recomend Pheasant Run to anyone I know who is looking for a wedding venue.

- Amanda 10/31/15

Pheasant Run was a great venue for our wedding and reception. Debbie was great throughout the planning process and made sure our day went perfectly. The food was delicious, the venue is perfect for an outdoor or indoor ceremony, and it's great your guests can stay there as well. Our ceremony was outdoors and it made it less stressful knowing that they had a back up room ready for us in case it was raining.
If we could do it over again, I would choose Pheasant Run as our venue. Highly recommended!

- Kelsey 9/04/2015

Everything was awesome. The planner, Debbie, helped with every step of the process including the day of the wedding which was a Sunday. She was super patient and helpful and extremely pleasant. Every one of the workers were pleasant and helpful and very accomodating. My new husband and I highly recommend this venue to anyone. I also had my hair, makeup and pedicure done and the spa and all those ladies were awesome too. Love love love this place...cannot say enough nice things.

- Sandra 7/6/2015

Fay Anders did an amazing job helping us plan and setup our wedding. Couldn't tell you how great it was having our wedding at Pheasant Run. The food and service were amazing, the amount of food served was an insane value for the money, no one left hungry. The staff professional and courteous, friendly and fun with a smile. Would easily have another wedding there, everything was spectacular.

- Anonymous

Absolutely fabulous! ! I can't say enough good things about my experience. Fay made the whole experience very easy and painless. She made sure the room looked exactly as I envisioned it and even better! Steve helped us the day of the wedding and he was so attentive and wonderful. They went above and beyond making sure that everything was absolutely perfect. The hotel itself was great for us because it had activities for children to keep them occupied and a late night bar and band after the reception for the adult. It is now three days later and people are still messaging us about how wonderful the whole wedding and reception , was especially Pheasant Run.

"I just wanted to email you to send a huge thank you out for all of your help setting up the bachelorette party last weekend!  Everything was absolutely wonderful!  The pool side spa services worked out perfectly, everyone got to relax and be pampered and still got to socialize with each other while rotating through the different stations and the pool! The lunch came out amazing, everything came out right on time and the server in our room was fantastic! Everyone enjoyed it and the food was great! The bride and all of the ladies had a great morning.  Please give my compliments to all of your staff!"
