I honestly don't know where to begin, but I will do my best to try and describe to you the amazing experience we had. First of all, the venue is absolutely stunning. The grounds, the reception area, everything is beautiful. The most important item on my wish list when it came to... Read More finding a venue was ensuring there was a nice indoor space for the ceremony should it rain - I didn't want to be disappointed over something I couldn't control. The room that holds the ceremony - beautiful. The weather wasn't a worry at all. Luckily for us, it didn't rain and we got to enjoy the stunning grounds and view of the west garden. I didn't even need to dress up the space - it was gorgeous on it's own. Our cocktail hour and reception was amazing. From our experience, and from the words of my guests, everyone loved it and had an amazing time. The staff was attentive, but in stealth mode - they were never overbearing. The guests even gushed over the bartender and knew him by name. The food - UNBELIEVABLE. Everyone raved about the appetizers served during cocktail hour, dinner and at the end of the evening when they served hamburgers (with all the fixings!) and french fries! The wedding package they offer is incredible. Everything was taken care of right there on site which made everything so much easier. The Waterview took care of our ceremony, the reception, catering table linens, our cake (which was delicious and gorgeous by the way!), the open bar - even our table numbers and parts of our centerpieces. Everything was set-up beautifully, just as I had asked and envisioned. They did an amazing job making our fairy tale come to life. And then there was Sue, our wedding coordinator. Speechless. Sue was always there to answer any questions we had. She went above and beyond to make sure our day went off without a hitch. In our final meeting, three days before the big day, I mentioned how that past weekend at a friend's wedding I tired this amazing drink called huckleberry lemonade and never had heard of huckleberry vodka before. She went out and got huckleberry vodka and lemonade for me for our big day. Just one of the many things Sue and The Waterview did to ensure that our day went smoothly. Sue was there through every step to ensure we were where we needed to be, but also that we were enjoying ourselves and being present in the moment. I honestly cannot thank Sue enough for everything she did for us. Oh, and as a bonus, she is a wonderful person. Sue has a huge heart, great sense of humor and the most wonderful personality. I honestly can't say enough good things about this venue. Everything was just perfect - and if something didn't go perfectly, the venue did an amazing job at resolving it without us every knowing which is exactly what you want on your big day. You don't want to have a single worry. I wish we could relive our wedding every day. It will forever be one of the greatest days of our lives and I will never forget it thanks to Sue and everyone at the Waterview.

It's a beautiful place, the food is phenomenal, and the staff is ON POINT! They're so well organized and professional, and when something goes wrong (as it happens to everyone) they are right there to fix it before you even realize. We had pictures of our grandparents on the... Read More mantle place, and accidentally double printed one set and missed another. We realized as we were walking into our ceremony, and our bridesmaid emailed the photo and it was already fixed and in place before we came back in from our ceremony. What could have been a disaster was handled swiftly and with a smile, and that's the kind of courtesy and service that can really make or break your big day. We were a bit hesitant in the beginning, knowing that two weddings can be held there the same night, but I can honestly tell you, there was another wedding and we never even noticed. There was no cross-over, no noise, no confusion. Everything was magical, every last detail (and seriously, the FOOD!!!!). We loved it!

Absolutely Amazing!

I can't say enough good things about The Waterview staff or about the venue in general. The Waterview was the first placecw looked at when we were shopping for a venue and we knew it was the place for us before we even finished the tour. The grounds are flawless and... Read More immaculate, and the inside is the same. Exceptionally clean and spacious. The staff are the friendliest, most accommodating people I've ever met in my life! They literally waited on us hand and foot. The food was OUTSTANDING, not one negative comment from a single guest! Everyone loved everything! The Waterview provided our cake as well as a dessert table and everything was just phenomenal. We also did our ceremony on-site and had the most beautiful view of Lake Zoar. It was absolutely incredible and our day could not have been any more perfect. Huge thank yous to April, Sue, Shannon, Angela, and Jason, as well all of the staff we didn't get to meet personally! I truly could not have gotten through the day without you all so thank you so much!!!

The Waterview is an absolutely amazing wedding venue. The staff is fantastic and happily accommodates everything that you want for your special day. Sue, our wedding coordinator was wonderful and we cannot say enough good things about her and our bridal attendants Angela and... Read More George who were by our side the whole day offering drinks and food and making sure we were happy . It was a rainy day, but when the rain stopped the staff had tablecloths to lay on the ground so my dress didn't get wet or dirty. The event was so well coordinated and flowed easily. The food was great! The appetizers were delicious and the meat was cooked perfectly, even according to my high standards. The cake was beautiful and our guests loved the chocolate fountain that we added which had a large assortment of dipping items. The servers were very professional. The grounds are absolutely beautiful as well as the indoor space. At the end of the event the staff packed up all of my decorations and gifts that had been displayed perfectly and we didn't have to worry about anything at the end of the day. I cannot say enough about The Waterview and how amazing our wedding was thanks to the venue and the wonderful staff that help make your day as special as it possibly can be!

I can not say enough amazing things about the Waterview. My husband and I were married 8/6/16. Kat, my Event Manager, answered all my questions in a timely manner. She helped us make our wedding perfect, the way we imagined it. The staff of the Waterview were professional.... Read More They all went above and beyond when it rained 15 minutes before my ceremony. They dried the ceremony space and pulled off a beautiful outdoor ceremony. The ballroom is simply stunning. The food is delicious. The tea light candles on the tables create a romantic feel.

The outdoor space is simply stunning, it is a beautiful backdrop for wedding photos. I wish i could relive this night all over again!!

Our experience with the Waterview could not have been any better. We first met with April in January of 2015 and from there our experience with the Waterview only wow'ed us more. April was amazing, she made us feel very welcome and was very open about what was included and not... Read More included in the pricing of the venue. We knew almost immediately that this was where we wanted to have our wedding and we are so happy we made that decision. Kat was our wedding coordinator and she was amazing the entire way. She was very quick to respond when I emailed with a question and supplied all the necessary information we needed. What really impressed us was the day of the wedding. I don't even know where to begin for this part. We had Kat and two bridal assistance that were with us for the day. Kat did an amazing job organizing everyone and making sure that everyone was where they had to be. While my husband and I were taking pictures, she lined up all of our bridesmaids and groomsmen to get them ready to be introduced, all we had to do was get in line. She made sure that everything was perfect and it most certainly was. Our bridal assistance were there every step of the way making sure that we had everything we needed. If we needed a drink, food or even someone to hold my bouquet or fluff my dress, they were there! Once the reception was over, everything we had brought with us was packed up on a cart ready to go before I could even think about having to do that. I know it's part of their job but my husband and I felt extremely well taken care of. The Waterview was one step ahead of us the entire way and we didn't have to stress or worry about a single thing the entire day. It was absolutely amazing and I would highly recommend the venue to anyone that asks!!

Everything was absolutely perfect and beautiful the day of our July wedding. Everyone was very professional and the day went more smoothly than I ever thought a wedding could. I love that they provide a wedding coordinator and 2 bridal attendants who made sure that we had... Read More everything we needed. Very affordable when we chose the 10:30am time slot on a Saturday for the ceremony to begin. I couldn't be happier and HIGHLY recommend The Waterview. They provide soooo much inclusive of the per head price that there were very few outside vendors we needed to hire. For those, if we didn't have something in mind they have a list of vendors that they work closely and frequently with. We used a couple of their suggested vendors and were very pleased with them as well!

From the moment my husband (then fiancé) stepped into The Waterview for our first tour, we were greeted by friendly and caring staff. Our tour guide, Hilde, was bubbly and knowledgable. The venue was gorgeous and we loved that all our food needs (including our wedding cake)... Read More would be handled onsite. Our coordinator, Kat, was attentive and did not make me feel like a nuisance with my late night emails and random questions. All in all, I would recommend this venue to any couple. What I especially liked about The Waterview is that no one made us feel like a number. Venues like this do host several weddings/occasions each weekend but we were never made to feel like we were being processed by the "wedding machine." The day of our wedding, the staff was very attentive to our needs and our guests needs -- including accommodating my husband's mobility issues and providing a space for a breast-feeding guests.

I'm not a traditional bride and didn't want a typical summer wedding so I decided to get married on New Year's Eve... I had about 5 months to plan a wedding after I got engaged and everything worked out perfectly with the Waterview! I had been to a couple weddings at the venue... Read More before, so I already knew the venue was gorgeous and the food was amazing. It was the easiest process booking the wedding, I met with the staff multiple times and emailed constantly. For the actual wedding day, there were multiple "attendants" with us who made sure we had everything we needed and could explain everything. I also got dark mauve lipstick on the center of my dress right before walking into the ceremony which one of the great helpful guys got off my dress completely within minutes! (salt and seltzer is the trick!) From the ceremony to the reception, the staff was extremely attentive, on top of everything, and made sure we were organized and that everything went smoothly! For NYE we could only do the sit down dinner option (which I would have picked anyways but I've also been to a wedding with the buffet option and that was good too!)... we chose filet mignon, chicken picatta, and salmon. Everyone loved the food and raved that is was perfectly hot and had a huge portion. I didn't get to enjoy the apps but everyone also raved about them and said they had hot chocolate and hot cider for the winter wedding! We did the cake through the venue as well and did dark chocolate cake with dark chocolate mousse.. it was delicious! As far as the venue itself, we did our ceremony inside which was beautiful. It was dark outside so the room was lit dimly and had candles in the huge windows behind us.... I've also been to summer weddings where there are two options for getting married outside and both sides are beautiful! We were able to take pictures outside because it was a warmer December day and we got great pictures by the lake and with some of the settings outside! Everything was amazing from the venue, to the staff, the food, etc.... I would recommend to anyone!
