My parents hosted my engagement party here.
From the initial planning to the date of the party, Bonnie the banquet manager was a pleasure to work with. The food was absolutely plentiful and delicious! The banquet room is gorgeous with water views. The dance floor is huge. The location is excellent right off 1-95 on the Post Rd. My fiance and I so enjoyed everything that we felt like we were in a fairy tale!

The Water’s Edge at Giovanni's could not be any more of an ideal place to hold a wedding or any type of major event. The staff and ownership were beyond incredible and catered to our every need. Additionally, they alleviated and prevented any type of stress that comes with making sure things were perfect for our wedding. It was a worry-free and beautiful day and we would never in a million years consider hosting another occasion of this type of importance anywhere else. IT WAS A PERFECT DAY!

From the first moment we walked into The Water’s Edge Giovanni’s we were greeted, and treated like family even though we didn’t have an appointment. Bonnie Littlefield made us feel right at home, she didn’t miss a beat even though she was in the middle of setting up for a wedding that same day. We were introduced to Giovanni who couldn’t have been nicer, and Sal the manager was accommodating, informative, and professional. We were offered a cocktail, coffee, etc. and tour of the venue. It immediately felt like we were with family, and they didn’t miss a beat when we announce it would be a same sex wedding. We were given a beautiful and detailed package of wedding pricing, and extensive menu choices. We made a follow up appointment to see the venue again and to discuss or needs in more detail.

Our second visit was even a greater pleasure, and having already visited 5 or 6 other venues we could tell this was the place for our wedding. Bonnie was patient, kind, professional, caring, and a wonderful person. Again we left there feeling like we were at a family’s home and not in a wedding mill.

So contract in place we began the process and Bonnie was there for us every step of the way… the tasting was to die for… the food is excellent… Rack of Lamb, Filet Mignon, Lobster Tail, there are so many to choose from, and the cocktail hour better than any meal I ever had, and being Italian that’s not an easy task. Bonnie made the process go smoothly from start to finish.

Our wedding day was a fabulous and grand affair… Our family and friends are still talking about the venue, ceremony, amazing cocktail hour, spectacular dinner menu, unparalleled service, excellent music by DJ Kurt, and the most magnificent flowers by JP Licari!

To quote one of our guests “It’s the best wedding I’ve been to in 20 years”

This was a second wedding for us. Giovanni's was incredible...the attention to detail, the kindness and professionalism of the staff. Everything was just perfect. They also recommended a fabulous DJ. It couldn't have been easier. This day was so very special to both of our families. The guests raved that it was one of the best weddings ever.

From the moment we stepped into The Waters Edge, we knew that we were going to have our wedding reception there. Although it was only the second venue we saw, we both felt that there was no better place to celebrate our wedding. After we saw a few more venues, we had to go back to The Waters Edge because nothing we saw compared to it.

Perhaps one of the most important reasons we chose this venue was the food. The quality of the food (all made on the premises) is exceptional, and we had a taste of that in their adjoining restaurant. Our menu provided a choice of chateaubriand, rack of lamb and Chilean sea bass; guests have raved about each of these. Moreover, the service was excellent, with servers assigned to each table. The servers ensured that each guest, including those with specific food allergies, were happy. Our guests are still talking about how delicious everything was and how smoothly the night went. The pricing for their wedding packages is also reasonable, and, given the service and quality of the food, is far superior to most venues in the area.

Last but not least, perhaps the most valuable asset to The Waters Edge is Michele Esposito, their wedding coordinator. She assisted us in every way, and her attention to detail, warm demeanor and enthusiasm made the whole wedding process much less stressful! From planning the menu to making sure we ate our dinner during the wedding, Michele did it all.

We cannot say enough great comments about The Waters Edge. If we had to do it all over, we would choose this venue again without hesitation. We HIGHLY recommend The Waters Edge!!

The elegance and warmth of the facility carried throughout the wedding experience. Michele assisted us during the entire process and was welcoming and efficient. I didn't have to worry about a thing. Absolutely wonderful!!
