We got married at the Waterview on December 16th, and it was the most magical day, ever. First of all, the staff is top notch. From our first visit to our wedding day, they were amazing and so accommodating. We worked with April to secure our date and complete our contract (and got a bottle of champagne, yay!). And Colin was our wedding coordinator. Colin was seriously the absolute best. I have an uncle that has religious based dietary restrictions that are pretty intense, and he worked with the chef to create a special Indian dish just for him. Any questions or concerns that I had leading up to the event were addressed quickly and efficiently. He worked with all of our vendors on the day of - I received not one call or text with any issue, which is exactly what you want on your wedding day! Just to paint a picture here, the moment I stepped off of the bus on our wedding day he was waiting with our two bridal attendants (Joe and Angela) and they immediately took my dress and all the things I had to carry to the bridal suite. They all made sure that we had every single thing that we needed while we were getting ready for the ceremony (including getting my brother in law who was upstairs something to eat!), and checked in often to make sure everyone was taken care of. I was delighted to see that all of the favors, picture frames, table cards, etc were exactly where they needed to be when they needed to be there. During the reception all three were always around to make sure that we had anything we needed, Colin actually helped bustle my dress! I really cannot say enough about how wonderful the venue and the staff are. The food was excellent, and we were treated like royalty the entire time. Thank you so much for making our day so special, we love you guys!
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 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!
Our wedding day would not have been what it was without our amazing coordinator Kat as well as our bridal attendants Angela and Joe! Kat worked with my husband and I on every detail and was so flexible and catered (happily) to every single one of our needs. Angela and Joe were so attentive on our wedding day and were so kind and helpful! The view on the lake is incredible, I was so sad it was too cold for an outside ceremony but our inside ceremony was still so beautiful with the floor to ceiling windows giving our guests a lake view. The food was amazing, bartenders friendly and funny. Our guests had an amazing time! There isn’t a single bad thing I could say about this venue.
We got married at the Waterview on 3/16/18. The venue was absolutely stunning. They set up everything beautifully. The staff was so helpful and organized. Colin Melita was very attentive. The staff made both my husband and myself feel special and guided us through the day.
I got married at the Waterview this past January and they blew away my expectations. Our wedding coordinator was Marie and she was AMAZING, and so was everyone on staff. They are responsible, polite, great with all family members young and old, and anticipated my needs before I even knew what I wanted. Marie went above an beyond an even offered to drive and deliver my hair piece to me the morning of the wedding because I had accidentally packed it with my wedding decor at the venue.. she is a real queen! The service we received was truly outstanding, they made me feel like a princess the entire night and I was able to relax in trust in them to do everything from decorate and pack up our belongings at the end of the night (even our leftovers!). It felt so great to finally get to enjoy the day I had been stressing over forever! The biggest thank you ever to Marie, and all the staff at the Waterview for making our day so special.
We got married on 2/18/18 and we could not have picked a better place. Our event coordinator was Colin and he did such an amazing job!!!!!! The food was excellent, the cake was amazing, and they gave my vision of my wedding life. I was so happy with the Waterview... THANK YOU!!!!! Elvella
Our wedding was December 29th at 5:30. The Waterview was beautifully decorated in greens and white lights. The wedding coordinator let us visit 5 times with our wedding planner. Despite having so many weddings each week, it felt like mine was important to her. We also held the ceremony downstairs and she organized all the logistics of that space. The attendants were amazing...we never needed anything. The food was excellent and the Viennese dessert table is so worth the additional cost!!!
Couldn’t recommend more. From the staff to the food, everything was perfect. People are still talking about the food/cake and Colin especially made sure our day went perfectly! If I could go back in time I wouldn’t change the venue for anything!
Absolutely would recommend the Waterview to anyone! We had our marriage and reception on 1/6/18 at the Waterview; a winter wedding on the coldest night of the (maybe decade) year. We had a flawless experience from beginning to end! Kat was absolutely amazing - I had so many questions throughout and she was so attentive and receptive to all of them! Everything went smoothly, all our decorations were exactly the way I envisioned; the food was amazing, and all of our guests had a wonderful time! I could not recommend Kat & her team at the Waterview enough!
We cannot day enough about the waterview it was beautiful and romantic and the staff was amazing! No one complained about anything. The day was even more perfect than I had imagined to to be. Every detail was stunning and even though it snowed on our wedding day the staff worked through it and made our day that much more amazing!
I don’t even know where to begin. What an absolutely perfect venue. From the structure to the coordinator to the bridal attendants and everything else in between; our wedding day was more beautiful and perfect than I could have ever imagined it to be! Not to mention, the food was phenomenal! Our coordinator, Kat, was SO helpful from the day that we booked until the day we said I do. My heart is still so full from this day and we couldn’t have made it at all possible without the Waterview!
I had my wedding here November 10, 2017. Kat was my wedding coordinator and she did an amazing job!!! So professional the entire staff of The Waterview they were great, with all of the food, decorating, and cake. The experience was absolutely amazing and we are so happy we chose The Waterview!!!
My husband and I got married at The Waterview on Oct. 20, 2017. To say it was a fairytale is totally underrated. Marie was our coordinator and she did an amazing job, along with the bridal assistants that day, making sure our ceremony and reception went on without any skips. It was truly beautiful, the staff were so friendly, and my guests could not say enough about the food, drinks, and overall experience. 5 stars for sure!
The Waterview was definitely the right choice for our October 2017 wedding. The staff there is incredible and at the top of their game. They caught printing errors on some of our napkins and one of our attendants even walked a nervous flower girl all of the way down the aisle. They made sure that our wedding ran smoothly from start to finish and were so easy to work with through all of the planning beforehand. The food was absolutely delicious and the ice cream and grilled cheese stations were a big hit! We would recommend them to anyone!
The Waterview is an amazing venue! The view overlooking Lake Zoar was beautiful. All my guest commented on the view, but first let me start from the beginning. Everyone I encountered/worked with at the Waterview we’re GREAT! From our first visit meeting April who made sure we had the date we requested to our planner Kat who was amazing as well. Colin was always helpful and our bridal attendants that day were Awesome! The food was excellent and my guest commented on how everything was good and looked good as well as being plenty! I recommend the Waterview to anyone looking for a professional and classy setting to have the perfect wedding day!
The Waterview was the perfect balance between a beautiful outdoor ceremony space and glamorous ballroom reception. The chandeliers - CMON! Our coordinator Kat was so helpful during the entire planning process. She answered all 500,000 questions I had in a timely manner and made sure everything went off without a hitch. She sat with my mother and I as we meticulously went through all our DIY decor and where it should be placed. When the florist forgot to send flowers for my cake, she even helped my mom pluck flowers from our centerpieces to finish the cake off. The bridal assistants at the wedding made sure I had everything I needed when I needed it. It was a perfect night at this venue and I could not have had this wedding ANYWHERE else.
I cannot thank the Waterview enough! I looked at a lot of venues and nothing compared to the Waterview! As a bride you worry about so much during the day of your wedding but the staff at the waterview took all that worry away. They organized everything the way I asked, they were there to make sure everyone was taken care of, they accommodated our budget, and were above all classy. Not only was the venue perfect for the reception and the ceremony, but the staff was wonderful and the food was delicious. Not to mention the cake was beautiful and tasted amazing. Every guest complimented us and Said how much they enjoyed themselves! I would definitely recommend the Waterview to anyone looking for an amazing experience on their wedding day.
From the very first appointment to look at this venue, we knew it was right! The staff we met during our very first visit were so friendly and accommodating, we felt good about booking this venue, which we did fairly quickly! :) Joanna was who we worked with first on booking our date and getting all things started, she is so great! Friendly, helpful, attentive and made sure we had all the information we needed. The Waterview does "showcases" for booked brides and grooms where you get to taste all the food and see what different stations are like, when we went Joanna sought us out to say hello and talk with us for a while! As we got closer to our date we were assigned to Colin as our wedding coordinator. Thank god for Colin! :) He is calm, friendly, helpful and just down right really good at what he does! I must have emailed him a hundred times leading up to the wedding with questions, he always got back to me in a timely manner and always had an answer or solution for me! When we arrived the day of our wedding, he was waiting for us with champagne and quickly jumped into bustling my dress for me so I could get into cocktail hour! Throughout the night he was everywhere! Checking in on us, my parents, our guests, making sure everyone had what they needed. Truly, a rockstar! The service from the entire staff was wonderful, so attentive and helpful to all of our guests. The food was also amazing! We ended up adding many stations to cocktail hour, dessert and late night, and it was so worth it! Our guests are still raving about how great it all was and all those little touches really made the night! We are so happy with how everything went, thank you to all who made it happen at The Waterview! If you choose this venue, I promise it will not disappoint!
We got married at the Waterview on 9/30/17 and everything was absolutely perfect. We worked with April to secure our date and sign our contract, and she was so pleasant and easy to work with. Colin was our wedding coordinator and he was amazing as well. He was so quick to respond to questions and was so helpful on the day of our wedding. Everyone at the Waterview did such a great job - we brought a ton of decorations and they set everything up perfectly. The food and drinks were amazing, our guests could not stop raving about all the food at cocktail hour and the meals. The cake was also delicious. Everything about the waterview made our day great - it was seamless and we didn't have to worry about anything. I would highly highly recommend.
Wow, where to even begin!! Let’s just say if you choose to go with the Waterview for your event, you will NOT be disappointed!!!! Our wedding day was more than we could have ever hoped and dreamed and the team at the Waterview made it all possible. From the very moment we decided to sign the contract we were treated so well and with so much care! The date I wanted was taken the day We decided we were going with them as our wedding venue but they were more than helpful because all though they didn’t have the day I wanted they made everything possible!!! April was so helpful in making me feel better with a new date! Colin was our wedding coordinator and he was just GREAT! So patient, helpful and showed interest in everything we talked about, which my husband and I truly appreciated . It’s so easy to get lost in a sea of brides and grooms getting married at the same location but Colin made sure to always help us when we needed anything! The day of the wedding was PERFECT! Everyone who worked to make our day happen was extremely nice and professional. My bridal attendants we GREAT. The food was amazing and my guests were so satisfied with the quality and amount of food and drinks that they had. Honestly, I just can’t say enough to express how grateful we are. Thank you so much to everyone at the Waterview.
I am only two weeks away from my wedding and wish I could do it all over again! The Waterview staff was amazing, Colin our wedding planner went above and beyond. Every little detail was exactly how we wanted it and all my guests said how wonderful and beautiful the reception was. I would highly recommend this venue for a wedding reception and am so happy this is where we chose to have our wedding!
This venue was absolutely incredible. Colin and the rest of the team made the day go so smooth. They were constantly checking in on us asking if there was anything we need and making sure we ate. I even lost my drink at one point which I didn't think anything of it and they brought me a new one. They were amazing! Thank you so much for making our day unforgettable!
The Waterview went above and beyond to exceed our expectations for our July 29 wedding. Our guests could not stop talking about how beautiful the venue was, how amazing the food was, and how great the service was. Colin was the best coordinator we could ask for. He was incredibly responsive to email, creative, attentive to detail, and got our vision within a few short meetings. His total control of the day really helped us to relax and enjoy it. Everyone that we came in contact with was very professional, very customer service oriented, and really seemed to enjoy their job. A few amazing surprises that grabbed my attention: Our bridal party was met with champagne flutes at the limo! They re-used my church pew bows and live plants to decorate the space (beautifully and autonomously, I might add)! They had a sewing kit on site to help when my bustle wouldn't stay! They knew my groom & I didn't eat and sent us home with a care package! I could say so many more wonderful things about them, but I will just let you find that out for yourself. We couldn't be happier with how the day turned out, and the Waterview was the perfect choice for us. I highly recommend that you consider them for your wedding.
Absolute perfection! Our August wedding at the Waterview was flawless. Our wedding coordinator Kat was amazing and made sure every detail was perfect. She was always attentive and responsive every step of the way. The wait staff and bartenders are second to none. The venue is breathtaking and my guests are still raving about the food!!! The Waterview certainly made my wedding the best day of my life.
The waterview made my wedding day pure perfection! The staff was on top of every detail and made sure every guest was taken care of. I can not say enough great things about this venue, it is not only a BEAUTIFUL venue, but is staffed amazingly!
