Imagine your heart’s desire, where cascading waterfalls welcome your guests, and every detail down to the last beautifully folded napkin is attended. On the happiest day of your life, let our professional consultants, knowledgeable staff, and executive chef do what they do best: make your wedding day carefree and unforgettable.



Share your dreams with us, and we’ll start making them come true. A few questions will get us on our way.



Have you selected a date for your wedding? The seasons affect everything from the look of our waterfalls and landscaped verandas (beautiful year-round, we assure you) to the availability of our rooms, and even the menu selections your guests would enjoy.



How many guests will you invite? The Falls offers three different banquet rooms, which may be used alone or combined, accommodating up to 550 guests with ease. Whether your dream is an intimate dinner for friends and family or a lavish gala for everyone in town, our sterling service helps set the tone.



Tell us about the wedding day you’ve always wanted. Since the two of you have been engaged, or even before then, you’ve had your own ideas about the perfect wedding day. Outdoor ceremony? Ice sculpture? White-gloved servers? Dancing, dancing, dancing? Enclosed we’ve provided a list of three complete wedding packages featuring amenities and options you’ll find only at The Falls. This is the starting point for you and your consultant. Read less

I cannot express how incredibly delightful it was to work with everyone at The Falls! I originally called because I'd had some sticker shock from another venue. I spoke with Brad and his attempt to describe the beauty of the outdoor waterfall sold me immediately. They sent us a contract by the end of the day. We visited later that month and booked our date! Some people talk about how pricey a wedding is at The Falls, but I honestly think it's an amazing value and I had no problem paying for convenience. I had stated early on that I didn't care about chair covers with bows and since they rent those, they were able to take that off our package price. The DJ (Top Cats) was included in our package and a shuttle was available to the Hampton Inn down the road for a small fee. Guests talked about how the shuttle was incredibly convenient! Although we rented our centerpieces from somewhere else, they had centerpieces we could have used for free or rent some from them. The food was absolutely amazing! I didn't quite finish all of my dinner because I was a bit overwhelmed by the whole day and I completely regret it! We had our ceremony outside by the waterfall. We were able to do pictures there beforehand and we had the area for the rest of the evening. It was so nice to have a private space to escape to for some fresh air throughout the night! I don't recall there being any problems at all and even if there had been, I know that they would have taken care of it immediately. They honestly have thought of everything! There were a couple of times when the way they typically did things didn't quite mesh with my vision, but because of all of their experience, they always had good reasons why their way made sense and I was totally on board. We got so many compliments throughout the night and after the wedding about how fun and wonderful the whole night was. My husband and I had such an amazing time we're planning to have a 5 year anniversary party there! I cannot recommend them mo

My husband and I got married at The Falls in April 2014. Two months out and we are still hearing how great our wedding and reception was!! I could not have asked for a better place to have made those special memories! Ashley and Brad were/are outstanding!!! The venue is not only beautiful but they were flexible with meeting times, and just overall Amazing! Dustin and I were engaged for a year and a half and once we booked our venue, I had little to no stress knowing that we were going to be taken care of. The one thing that I thought I was going to have a problem with was being able to set up a time to meet with Ash and Brad because both Dustin and I work all the time, but we had NO issues. Ash was very professional and always kept in touch with us by email, phone, and making special times we were able to meet. The best part about this venue is that it is all inclusive and all we really had to do is get the cake. We booked the photographer and photo booth through Creative Images which is the in house choice! Again they were AMAZING!! Overall the food, service, and professionalism won us over! I really could not have asked for a better group to take care and get us ready for our special day!! I would definitely go back to do other events! Again Thank you so much Ash and Brad, Dustin and I appreciate everything you did to make our night AWESOME!!!

The Falls was everything I wanted and more. What's better is that the price was impossible to beat. The staff there are exceptional, and every question I had was answered within 12 hours. They never hesitated to give us up to four free tickets to their bridal shows and food tastings (tickets usually cost 20 dollars a piece), and every person that's talked to us has said, "That is the most beautiful wedding I've ever seen." They went out of their way to make vegetarian plates for my vegetarian guests, and I was kept completely informed throughout the entire planning process and the wedding day by the staff.

Everything was wonderful. Could not have been better. We used their limo bus that was great too. We originally got the smaller room but when the big room was not rented close to our date they upgraded us for just the cost of the extra people.
