I was lucky enough to hold my ceremony and reception at the Waterview this past January. From the moment we met with Joanna for the initial tour, until the flawlessly executed wedding day with my event coordinator, Colin Melita, we were so well taken care of and our guests are still raving about the wedding details and the food!
We had about a month to secure a place and fell in love with the Waterview as soon as we saw it-- and how could you not-- it's beautiful. Since our final guest count was about 225, we used one half of the Grand Ballroom for our ceremony and the other for our reception. We saw quite a few venues that would cram people into one section with hardly any room between the tables or between each seating arrangement, but that was not a concern for us here. The Waterview was so accommodating with our lack of time, and worked with us to help us pull off the short-notice planning.
A special shout out to my bridal attendants, who were constantly making sure we were eating and hydrated enough throughout the day. Being that the wedding was in January, they even came out in the cold with us during pictures, holding my coat so I could warm up between shots! A big thank you to my attendants-- Christina and Genny-- you guys are amazing :)
There's one more thing I can't help but mention. I have an uncle who is on a very strict diet, and as soon as I mentioned this to Colin, I was asked where he would be seated and was assured that he would be completely taken care of. The family told me that they received the best service compared to any other wedding they've been to. This, among other compliments I received about the food and the service, went to show that the staff at the Waterview do an exceptional job and go above and beyond to ensure that your wedding (or any other event) goes smoothly. Thank you Joanna, Colin, and the staff at the Waterview for making our day so memorable!!

The Waterview and all of their staff are absolutely outstanding. We had our winter wedding here on 1/14/2017 and I could not have imagined the day going any better. We knew after our first visit that this was our venue. The water views and beautiful windows throughout make this venue absolutely gorgeous at any time of year, but it made our snowy wedding day just perfect being able to watch the snow fall over the lake throughout the reception. Our wedding coordinator Kat was fantastic and made us feel comfortable and excited at every stage of our planning. I was living in Texas for work and was having to plan our entire wedding over the phone and via emails. Kat made this a seamless and stress free process. She was so accommodating and kept me on schedule during each phase of planning. She worked with our travel schedule to make sure we had in person meetings whenever possible and made our day absolutely amazing. On the day of the wedding we had nothing to worry about and Kat took care of everything. From working with our vendors to keeping our timeline on schedule, she covered it all. We also had two outstanding bridal attendants, George and Jenny who made the day even sweeter. They were troopers and even stood outside to help me with my dress for our snowy bridal party pictures! Kat, George and Jenny made sure that my husband and I, and all of our guests were comfortable and having fun all night long. At the end of the night they had all of our items boxed up and ready to hand off to us. The night went off without a hitch and it was a dream come true. We still have guests raving about the beauty, food, cake, and service that this venue offers. I HIGHLY recommend The Waterview for your wedding or event. The staff is fantastic and it was an experience I will always cherish. Thank you!!

Absolutely fantastic place to have a wedding from the beauty of the site to the wonderful staff on hand, I cant recommend a better place for a wedding. Sue was our wedding coordinator and she was just wonderful, she made the day go smoothly and helped us throughout the entire planning process. We planned the wedding from CA and so she was very helpful in making us feel at ease and scheduling meetings when we were in the area so that we could have a smooth wedding. The other staff members who were part of our day were just amazing as well they made sure we had everything we wanted and needed and our wedding went great! I would recommend the Waterview for anyone thinking of doing their wedding there!

We are thrilled to have our ceremony and reception at the Waterview. Kat was our event planner and she was fantastic. We planned our event from Virginia, so we really appreciated Kat's responsiveness over email -- and during those scant times in which she was unavailable, other Waterview staffed stepped in to help.

The ceremony site is beautiful and the reception venue has a wonderful view of the water, as you might expect from the venue's name. The food was phenomenal -- we had many guests remark how great the appetizers, antipasti, chicken piccata, prime rib, and vegetarian dish were. The bride is vegetarian, so they made her a custom dish (the chef even reached out beforehand to discuss specifics over email, which was a wonderful touch). Other guests who ordered the vegetarian dish remarked that it was the best vegetarian dish they ever had at a wedding.

Kat was very flexible as well -- we had some last-minute requests 24 hours before the wedding such as adjusting seating (sick guests cancelled) and all the requests were accommodated with a smile. We had George and Talia as our bridal attendants on the day of the wedding. They both were fantastic and helped keep us on schedule. When the bridal party had to make an emergency dress repair, Talia even whipped out some scissors to help out. We couldn't have been more pleased with the Waterview. My grandfather mentioned several times that the staff was very professional and greeted everyone with kindness, so that's another star in my book. Thanks!

After seeing such great reviews and hearing so many great stories, my fiance and I booked the Waterview and we couldn't be happier to have our reception here. We have already went to one showcase and tasting and I can tell the food is going to be phenomenal! The location, atmosphere, and staff have been wonderful so far and I can't wait to see how everything comes together for the big day!

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. 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. My husband is a big fan of craft beers, we were able to bring in beer and the bar served it. Our bridal attendants kept us hydrated and happy. The outdoor space is simply stunning, it is a beautiful backdrop for wedding photos. We received a lot of wonderful feedback from the guests about the venue. I wish i could relive this night all over again!!

We held our daughter's Bat-Mitzvah for 200 guests at the Waterview in June of 2009. From our first meeting with them almost two years prior, to the crunch time two weeks prior, through the evening of our affair, everything at the Waterview was top-notch. There clearly is a culture amongst the wonderful people who work at The Waterview to please the guests, and never say no. The food was absolutely phenomenal and very plentiful, from the sushi and the baby lamb chops at the extended cocktail party to the Chilean Sea Bass, the candy bar and the ice cream sundae bar at the dinner reception. From the owner to the maitre de to the waiters and bartenders, the service and the attitude clearly demonstrate that they all recognize what an important milestone in our life this day was, and they made you feel like they felt the same way. No detail was overlooked. Many many guests commented not only on the beautiful location and room, and on the wonderful food, but on the non-stop service that was heaped upon them. The Waterview made us, and our guests, feel like royalty, and they helped to create a day that will live in our memories forever. There was absolutely nothing else that could have been done to make this affair more special - if only they could have stopped the rain! Our son is now 11 years old, and we have put a hold on a date for his bar-mitzvah in 2 years. Do not overlook The Waterview - they know this business well, and they do a great job.
