Great Customer Service posted 11/12/2014

We have not booked a wedding venue yet but did a tour here and both sales girls are so professional and accommodating. Lindsay follows up quickly and continues to check on us to see the status of our decisions. She is even willing to give us another tour on a holiday weekend!!! I have been so impressed with the sales staff and applaud them for being so on-top of everything. Thanks for the great customer service!

Stunning wedding venue posted 10/22/2014 (modified 10/23/2014)

My husband and I were looking for an upscale modern but very elegant venue, we wanted something different. Waterview was everything we were looking for and more! It made a huge impact with our guests! The staff was so wonderful and ran the entire event like a well oiled machine! We were blown away with how everything turned out! Not to mention our pictures from the wedding are gorgeous with the back drop and scenery Waterview supplies!

Waterview Wedding posted 7/29/2014

My husband and I were married here on 6/28/14 with 150 guests in attendance. Our day was wonderful and our guests are still raving about how beautiful the venue was, how tasty the food was, and how marvelous the service was. The preferred vendors associated with this venue (Emerald City Designs, Baked Impressions, Elysium Experience) all exceed expectations and worked impressively well together to coordinate all services smoothly.
The venue itself is stunning; complete with new modern carpet and paint, nicely updated bathrooms, and surreal views of the riverfront. We found the facilities to be very clean and well maintained. The service team that ran the show on the day of was amazing and largely responsible for the success of our event. The bar and service staff were very quick and efficient, and appeared just outright happy to be there. Jackie was the operations manager responsible for our day (w one other whose name I forget now). These two were very attentive and communicated well to orchestrate all the vendors.
I deducted 'stars' from this review due to the experiences I had while planning. While all the management/ coordination staff were very nice and eager to please, the communication and organization of the team was lacking. We were originally assigned a coordinator named Christy, who then was fired/disappeared. Then had a second Kathy who was a manager just subbing as my coordinator, then finally Dawn. During this shuffle we actually hired an outside planner to help us. Poor Dawn was in the difficult position of having to deal with all the impossible promises the first coordinator had made (byob rules, rehearsal times, several prices). On the day of several details that had been discussed at length went awry leading me to believe communication between the many "coordinators" was flawed.

Despite the challenges I cannot express how kind the people were (especially Dawn), and how beautiful this place is. We would recommend this venue and it's team.
