Gorgeous reception, fabulous staff!

Having my reception at Watermark was absolutely the right choice! My wedding was early fall, so the colors were beautiful! We worked with Krystle and she was fantastic! We really enjoyed her! Our reception even made it on their website! The only tip I would give brides is to... Read More make sure that your costs are right. Check your bills! Be sure that you're being given the prices you were quoted. I know that staff is busy, so it's easy to miss little things. Best to just check it over yourself.

Could Not Have Asked For A Better Venue

Watermark was very close to our ceremony site, so we selected it mainly for the purpose of convenience. HOWEVER, once the planning process got under way, Watermark was AMAZING! Faith helped in every step of the process, making sure that I was informed and happy about decisions.... Read More She worked with our budget as much as possible. The food is TO DIE FOR! The hall was beautiful! We got to use the golf course for pictures! I could go on and on about how thankful I am that I found Watermark!

Booking Watermark as our reception venue was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day. They were SO accommodating even when I had to make a change just two days before the wedding. They were kind, flexible and SO professional. The food was excellent, the staff was... Read More friendly and our guests had a blast. We do not have one complaint in regards to our reception.

My wedding was 9-29-17. It was absolutely perfect! The staff was so friendly and helpful. Everything could not have gone smoother. The venue is just beautiful.

We chose Watermark CC because of the beautiful ballroom and windows looking out over the golf course, the parking, the spaciousness, and the excellent reputation it has in this city. We worked with Chaparral, and found her to be a dream coordinator! Everything about the process... Read More of planning a winter reception there was easy, flexible, and high-end.

A night I will never forget

They really worked hard to make sure the day was special with little details that I wanted, ie changing the electronic board for us. Jeanette was great at responding back to my emails quick and she made sure that we felt comfortable and confident with everything. The food was... Read More amazing and we had after hours pizza that everyone loved. Not only was the food great but the venue was beautiful with patio seating and we had lawn games that guests could play. They worked hard to truly make it a night to remember!

Good Food, one unfortunate misunderstanding

Reviewed on 8/05/2013 Julie T

I chose this venue because I had tasted their food before and it was amazing. Not cheap, but we had a small-ish group at our wedding reception (115) and we wanted to treat them. I bought a bunch of beer under the impression that I would get the leftover beer (because I paid... Read More for it), but they told me after the wedding that their license doesn't allow them to give me the beer that wasn't drunk. That was very frustrating because it was a big waste of money. Other than that, though, the service was excellent, the facilities very nice, and the friendliness of the staff was great.

We married in an off season so there were some good deals out there. Watermark is beautiful, the food is delicious, and we got to book the day we wanted. However, things did not get set up in the time frame that was discussed and agreed upon causing last-minute setups and our...

Poor service

Reviewed on 2/01/2012 Amanda H

Many little things wetn wrong with the service. They rushed our food out prior to the bridal party entrance. They served the wrong meal and after the fact would not work with us to make things right. They also cut the cake incorrectly and broke the cake topper. Overall food... Read More was good but service was not.

Overall, Watermark was a good choice; however, our wedding planner always seemed to be in a hurry and have little time for us. The food (chicken and prime rib) turned out great.

Great! -but avoid the 'event coordinator'

Reviewed on 7/21/2011 Ashley C

Our rehearsal & dinner, ceremony, and reception was all held at Watermark Country Club. The food was to die for (after gaining the head chef from a disaster of a tasting dinner), the staff was phenomenal in their efforts and really cared about us, and the room looked... Read More beautiful, but a lot of that can be credited to our florist/linens. The one complaint we had about Watermark was their 'event coordinator', Faith. She claimed to be very caring and know what quality service was all about from the beginning, so we felt confident in our decision. Had we not been such over-planners and super-organized, things would have been a complete nightmare the day of. She was only there for 2 hours on the actual day, took our rehearsal as a joke, and things didn't go the way she had promised logistically with our guests. I do have to say that Emily, her assistant/banquet manager was to die for. She was literally running around all day for us and was there from 9am-11pm. She rocked our socks off. I would request her above anyone else.

Amazing Food and Drink!
