The Corinthian Yacht Club of PhiladelphiaEssington, Pennsylvania
The Corinthian Yacht Club was the perfect location for our wedding! And affordable for those on a budget. The building is beautiful - clean, polished. The grounds are perfect for any event, but especially a wedding. We wanted to get married by the water but at a local spot - the CYC exceeded our expectations. Greg was easy to work with and was always there with answers to my many questions. He is a true professional and good at what he does. The CYC is a hidden gem that we were lucky enough to find!
I strongly recommend this venue for your wedding. We had two weddings in one week so budget was a BIG concern. Greg helped us stay within our budget and was so accommodating. He paid attention to the details and gave us lots of recommendations. Our wedding was dubbed "a United Nations summit" because we had people from all over the world attending. Greg ordered Haiti's rum as well as German beers and allowed us to bring in specialties for cocktail hour. He responded to all of our emails/calls in a very timely manner (even on a Saturday night). The food was AMAZING. They were able to make specialty dishes to accommodate our ethnicities (jerk chicken, south indian curry, fried plantains, rice and beans....need I say more) and we got SO MANY COMPLIMENTS. People thought we spent a lot more than we actually did! Three weeks later and we're still getting lots of compliments. I was set on having a city wedding, but after seeing this venue, I fell in love and I'm so glad we chose the Corinthian over a hotel downtown. The backdrop makes for beautiful pictures. One last note. We had the dinner inside and the ceremony, cocktail hour and dancing were held outside. I was nervous about the transition but there was no need to be. Everything worked out perfectly. We got married in June and although we provided insect repellant, it was not needed. Even though you are on the water, no bugs! I can't say enough about how great this place is and its a short drive from the city. Take a look at this place and you'll be happy you did!
Greg was wonderful to deal with. Anytime I had questions he was prompt to respond and be there anyway he could. My day went off without any glitches due to him and his amazing staff. Everything was set up perfect and I didn't have to worry about anything the day of. The site is gorgeous and its everything I had ever dreamed of.
