The staff at the Waterford were great. We had our rehearsal dinner here too. The food was excellent and the service superior. Our wedding and reception was held in the Wordsworth Ballroom. The staff did an awesome job flipping the room the tables, dance floor, gift table, cake table were all lovely. The table linens were clean and unstained. The wait staff, chef, bartender all were polite and helpful.

We had our wedding reception at the Waterford at Fair Oaks, and I very much enjoyed working with Consuelo and Elizabeth! They were so professional, thoughtful, responsive, and helpful! They took time to get to know us, and we were really thankful for the structure they provided for such a stressful day. I thought it was wonderful how they had scheduled meetings available for us, and I really enjoyed the care and attention they provided all the way through.

On the wedding day, I showed up to our reception about 15 minutes late, and the Waterford patiently waited on me and my husband before allowing the party to get started. Upon arrival, Elizabeth was outstanding about helping me to tie up the stressful loose ends so that I could enjoy the reception.

I also enjoyed working with Consuelo. She was right on responding to all of my emails, and she was very thorough in answering any questions. She also really helped me to not feel so silly about asking basic questions, and I felt very comfortable relying on her experience in making judgment calls.

The cost was extremely reasonable, especially given our budget and the expensive nature of the DC area. My guests enjoyed themselves, and we really loved the fountain and the chandeliers. It felt so fancy!

The food was extraordinary! My husband and I were really hard-pressed to make a decision about what to serve, but we loved our choices. The one problem we did have, however, occurred on the wedding day. We requested not to have almonds served on the green beans because we had guests with nut allergies, and unfortunately almonds were served on the green beans anyway. We managed to intercept our nut allergy guests and they were provided with a nut free meal. Despite this, everything else was perfect!

I was beyond thrilled with my experience at the Waterford. I had no questions, no issues, and no worries! From the moment I met with my consultant, every option was made known to me and every problem was nullified. It is a beautiful venue with the most competent and friendly staff. My guests loved the food and the ambiance and I loved the fact that I didn't have a single thing to worry about!

Consuelo and Elizabeth were great! They were very flexible and patient. It turned out that ours was the only afternoon event on our day, so Consuelo offered to let us have our ceremony in a different room instead of the room we reserved for our reception. It really made me feel that she was personally invested in making our ceremony and reception a success.

The food was great. A number of guests commented on how delicious the food was. I particularly enjoyed the mini crab cakes. All in all, the Waterford offered fantastic value for the price!

We had both our ceremony and reception at the Waterford on August 24, 2012. From the first day we walked in to tour until we left the night of our wedding, we were treated like ROCKSTARS! Consuelo Scott is the person I corresponded with most and she was responsive, professional and very flexible on any requests I had. The food was amazing, the staff was extremely professional and willing to help in any way they could. I used the bridal suite also, which was set up with beverages and ice and I just relaxed and waited to make my debut! Overall, I highly recommend the Waterford at Fair Oaks because of the service and the fact that I have NO complaints with regard to my venue choice! Thanks Consuelo!!

The Waterford at Fair Oaks was simply awesome. My wife and I both had a lot of ease and comfort when setting up and planning our wedding with them. We were planning our Wedding all the way from Texas and had to rely on my brother and his girlfriend to do our tastings of which they both had rave reviews. Everything went smoothly and their entire staff was nothing but accommodating.

The food was awesome. We had the Virginia Chicken and the Three Peppercorn Strip loin. Everyone loved the food and they even accommodated my Mother and Aunt who have gluten allergy. We never in our wildest dreams imagined it would go as awesome as it did. The Waterford made everything happen to our standard and above. The event coordinators were simply amazing and friendly. We would love to go back for another friend/family wedding so we could have the food again.

The Waterford is a great value for your money. In NOVA the price per plate can be through the roof, and finding a location that was within our budget but still allowed us to have an open bar all night was great. The Waterford's staff is very professional and they really know their stuff.

I was especially impressed with the food, we were able to have a carving station, an entree, a starch, two vegetable dishes and a salad.

We had a full bar during our cocktail hour, wine service during dinner and then a full bar for the remaining three hours of the reception.

Consuelo did a great job of pleasing my hard-to-please family and attending all the meetings prior to the wedding. She was flexible, helpful, and easy to get along with and compromise with. I highly recommend her. She helped resolve many of the questions I had and the reception hall was beautiful with giant chandeliers.

And the chef did an amazing job with the food. The food was spectacular.

We were very pleased with everything at Waterford. We had an outside catered event. The staff were very nice and courteous and attended to the guests. Everyone had a great time! Beverly, who was in charge that day, was hired only a few days before our event. She was very professional and made sure everything was perfect. Consuelo was always very friendly and prompt in answering our questions. I would definitely recommend Waterford at Fairoaks for your wedding!

I did not feel like I had good communication with the staff at Waterford at Fair Oaks. This was the most important vendor for our wedding and unfortunately the one that I was most worried about. There was no one on one interaction, only two meetings and the rooms were booked duing my appointments so I could not even view the room the first time. The chef did a great job with the food and his presentation was excellent. Service was slow during our reception and the coffee wasn't served when the cake was cut. Overall dissapointed.

Waterford at Fair Oaks responded with the following comments:

This mediocre review is inaccurate. The customer had multiple "one-on-one" meetings with two of our sales managers. There were lengthy conversations after the couple met with the chef at their tasting about the bride's choice of color scheme and wedding folder. The bride requested a "special starch" of baked sweet potatoes, which we were happy to accomodate. Their final meeting was even set at an alternative time, since the couple was going to be out of town at the time when final meetings usually occur. There were also multiple phone conversations with the groom about payments and details of their rehearsal dinner. One of our sales managers even contacted the bride the week leading up to the event to make sure that everything was set. All of this is documented in emails. We go above and beyond to give our customers personal attention and to meet their needs. We always strive to do our best to make sure that a couple's wedding day is perfect, and feel that we did put forth the utmost effort for this couple (as we do for each of our couples).

I knew the Waterford was where I was going to have my wedding within being there for 10 minutes. You walk in and there is a big water fountain that is really beautiful. It is a banquet hall so there are many different options of rooms to however big or small your wedding is. I had the Alexander room which had a minimum of 115 people and max 180. They provide free votive candles, mirror, and glass fish bowl for every table and have different linen options too. I looked at a lot of places and this was the best value for what you got and it was also beautiful. Everyone there was very helpful and responsed quickly to any questions I had. I would go back here in a heart beat and so glad I had my wedding here.

The Waterford took care of EVERYTHING for us! We had our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception all in the same place. Everything was perfect! The food was AMAZING! Their chef took the time to customize a menu for us for both the rehearsal dinner and reception. I could not have been more pleased.

We had to switch venues 10 weeks before the wedding. Something that can be highly stressful. Thanks to the staff at the Waterford we were stress free. Every single detail was taken care of by them. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. And the building is GORGEOUS on the inside! They take great care of their brides!

My husband and I attended our Senior Prom here, so the place is already special in that respect. We were on a tight budget and the Waterford was an amazing deal for me, the location is great (hotels everywhere!) the food was amazing, I wish I had more time to eat but people don't really get to eat in their own wedding. I had 4 hours of open bar and my room was beautiful. The staff if wonderful, all of them, every single person I spoke with was helpful and nice from my first visit to our big day. The day of, if I needed anything I just had to look up and someone was always there to answer questions and help. They were on top of everything and was very careful with my stuff, everything was set up nicely. The bridal suite was roomy, had everything I needed and more. I couldn't be happier and thank you for being part of this perfect day.

While the Waterford is beautiful on the inside and the food was good, I have several issues with them: On the day of our tasting we first met with a new office staff member who quickly went through some things with us and then rushed us off to our tasting with the chef. I still had several questions that I didn't get a chance to ask because of the hurried manner of our visit and the staff member left during our tasting with the chef so I wasn't able to get my questions answered. I ended up having to email my questions to their office. On our last meeting prior to our wedding, I was told that I could set up my centerpieces, favors, etc. at 4:00 pm the day prior to the wedding. (They said I couldn't get in any earlier even though my rehearsal was at 6:00 pm.) Traffic was awful that day so we didn't end up making it to the Waterford to set up. I called them to ask what the earliest time I could get in the next day (day of wedding) to setup was. I was told to call at 9:00 am to see if anyone would be there and if not that someone should be there by 9:30 am. I called at 9:00 am that morning and no one answered. I had my hair and makeup appointment at 10:00 am and we arrived at the Waterford at 9:30 am and someone was finally there. We got all of our stuff unloaded from the car and headed to our ballroom only to be shocked to find that our room wasn't even set up!!! The staff was putting together our dance floor and none of the tables were ready so we couldn't setup my centerpieces or anything! I ended up having to leave my bridesmaids with instructions for setup (which they did a phenomenal job with!!) because the staff was still not done setting up before I had to go to my hair and makeup appointment. Even if I had been able to make it to the Waterford the day before, as I was told I could, to set up my centerpieces I still wouldn't have been able to do it then because my room wasn't set up. The other issue I had was on the day of the wedding when I got to our cocktail reception after taking pictures (all of our guests were in our ballroom at that point) I found out that they had the wrong hors d'oeuvres display! We confirmed our entire menu at our final meeting and they had it correct at that meeting so I have no idea what happened between that meeting and our wedding day. The rest of the menu (thank goodness) was correct. I would say I have to agree with the last review that when I first booked at the Waterford the office staff was very nice and professional and then the closer to the wedding date we got the more unprofessional they became. I do have to say though that the waitstaff on my wedding day was outstanding.

Wheni first booked at the Waterford everyone was very nice and professional. The closer to the wedding date we got the more unprofessional they became. They are not at all flexible not matter what they say. The value for the money is truly not worth it. Please do not be fooled by the package pricing. The ballrooms are beautiful. And i can say that the waitstaff on my wedding day was out standing. Other then that the office staff is rude and unprofessional and has no sense of customer service. They made my wedding week very stressful. All in all my wedding day was great due to my husband staying on top of the office staff and of course my wedding planner.

Waterford at Fair Oaks responded with the following comments:

This groom was upset with Waterford’s sales staff for merely following the payment policies that were clearly stated in his contract. At the last minute, he insisted on making his final payment well after the due date. When he was politely asked to abide by the terms of his contract, the gentleman was not only rude to the staff, but made a show of paying with thousands of dollar bills (which we accepted). This negative review is not a surprise to us.

We had our ceremony & reception at the Waterford at Fair Oaks on June 11, 2011. I cannot be more pleased and happy with how everything turned out. My guests are still talking about how elegant the place was and how great the food was. We only had beer and wine and that was enough. Our guests were having so much and so did we. The staff on "THE" day was very friendly and placed everything in the right spot, which I haven't even though about. They did a great job, if I have to do it again, I will choose the Waterford again and the price was the best I found around my area. If you don't want to be in debt for the rest of your life for one day, this is the place you should book asap.

We had our reception at the Waterford Fair oaks and our guests are STILL talking about what a fabulous time they had and about how wonderful the food was. It was truly amazing working with Kelsey and the rest of the Waterford Staff. Everyone is so very friendly and helpful! I was able to get in the day before the reception to ifnish up the centerpieces and asked if we could get a cup of coffee. They made a fresh pot just for us - completely above and beyond what I would have ever expected! They went out of their way to make sure we had a great time at the reception. They were professional, courteous and extremely helpful. I had TONS of questions and Kelsey put me at ease every time I called. I can't say enough good things about the Waterford - working with them (and all of my vendors) makes me want to get married all over again!

I loved having our reception at the Waterford. Everyone who works there is so nice and they were all SO helpful every step of the way. Especially Kelsey. The food was amazing and I got so much positive feedback on how yummy the food was and how generous the portions were. (It was true I couldn't finish mine!) They were willing to tweak the menu and accommodate my vegetarian needs. The one complaint I would have,is that being a multi-ballroom facility, there will most likely be another reception going on at the same time as yours. (Esp. if you picked a popular date like I did.) And in the middle of my dad's speech we could hear "Shorty got low, low low low low loww lowww lowww..." in the next room! Kind of comical, but not really what you want to hear when your dad's giving his speech! But oh well, everything else was perfect!!! I would def. recommend this place to anyone!

Kelsey, the Catering Manager, is very professional and responsive, too. Overall, I had a great experience working with the team @ Waterford, Fair Oaks.

I used the Waterford for my reception. The first thing I have to say is that the food was AWESOME! All of my guests loved the food and went back for seconds and even thirds (we had a buffet). I was originally concerned when my contact person there left, but Kelsey took over and did not miss a beat. The staff was very friendly, and even though there were two other weddings going on, I still felt like my wedding was the only one there.

From our initial communication, down to their organization on the day of my wedding on Oct 5th, my reception went above and beyond my expectations. The food was outstanding, the venue was beautiful, and the staff is professional and extremly helpful.
I cannot express how overjoyed I was to walk into a breathtaking ballroom for my reception. They made my dream wedding a reality.
A big thanks to Charlena and Erin who were extremly helpful, and to the chef, who made delicious food.

I would recommend Waterford to anyone who was like me and wanted everything in one package. I would also recommend it to couples who aren't on a tight budget.
While our reception was very lovely, it was a bit over priced, even for the buffet.
We also had to follow a very tight schedule of our start and end time. Which is reasonable considering they are a reception hall. Our wedding was at 11:30 in the morning. Our cocktail house began at 12:30 and ended at 5. Even though we were taking up a half hour less of their room time, they refused to budge for their per person price. Our package was a buffet. We could pick two entrees, two greens, and one starch. To add on another starch was two dollars a person extra! The food was excellent though. The salmon was cooked perfectly and the chicken was juicy. The open bar with the package was very worth it though. I do believe some of my guests drank as much alcohol as the per person price was!
My father had one complaint. He arrived to the cocktail hour a little late, as they were taking down the bar and getting ready for the reception. He had tried to order a drink and was told he couldn't. When he told the tender he was the Father of the Bride, the bartended didn't seem to care. Only when my father asked to see a supervisor did the supervisor tell the bartender to give my dad whatever he wanted.
While my DJ was announcing my husband and I for the first time, one of the employees was talking in his ear telling him to speed it up! It resulted in my DJ calling us Sgt. & Brad Sanders, instead of Sgt. and Mrs. Brad Sanders. A minor slip up, but still was caught on film.
Also, the man in charge of calling up tables to go to the buffet forgot about our head table! Mine and my husbands meal was plated for us, but he called our table one before he called the bridal party table! I quickly saw this and asked him if my table could go next. He was very very apologetic and it looked like he just had a brain slip.
Other than that the wait staff was very attentive, espcially to my husband and I. The food was great and the drinks very well made.
Like I said, I'd recommend it to anyone who doesn't mind a reception at a reception hall and who isn't on a tight budget.

I really enjoyed working with the Waterford. I had several challenges that were taken care of with no problem.

My guest list continued to grow and 60 days before my wedding I was looking at 200 - 250 instead of the original 180 max I had contracted for. I was so happy that they worked with me to upgrade me to a larger room so that my guests were better accomodated.

My cousin made the cake for the wedding and since I was not having the ceremony at the Waterford (instead I had it in Manassas), the cake needed to be dropped off well in advance (3:00pm for a 5:30 reception). The staff at Waterford was very flexible and worked with me in order for that to happen with no problem.

I only had a minor flop and this was partly my fault for not being more descriptive. The way I wanted my table centerpieces arranged was a little messed up. I think it was just a miscommunication and it really didnt affect my experience. It was a little annoying, but they worked to fix any little detail that I needed taken care of.

The only other little miff I had with them was it wasnt until the last month that I knew who would be working my event. My suggestion would be to make sure you know who your consultant is when you go into the contract.

All in all, my experience was rather good and I enjoyed my event. The food was awesome and the drinks were exceptional. I also enjoyed the level of service we recieved on our special day. I would definitely reccommend to anyone looking for a beautiful facility at a great price!

They forgot to put out our wedding favors, booked a pretty noisy event right next to our room, and the room was actually not even ready to be set up for the ceremony so our florist was delayed. Overall, I was not a very happy bride. Definitely would not reccommend this venue for weddings.

The Waterford did a great job! We had a little trouble with our tasting. The Events manager mixed up the times and was not too nice to us we she claimed we were late. We requested not to work with her any longer. After that the General Manager & assistant worked with us and they were great. We had a buffet dinner, but they served the bride & groom (which was great, or we would have never eaten)!.

Beautiful venue and great food. There was some confusion and last minute changes to the room that we were to use, but otherwise things went very smoothly, looked great, and we had a great time. If you choose to also have your ceremony there and want to be up on a riser, ask for it to be covered or bring something to cover it with you. They are black and silver and just kind of stand out in an otherwise beautiful atmosphere.

We had both our ceremony and reception at the Waterford at Fair Oaks.

Our ceremony was in the morning and reception in the afternoon.

We got there prior to Waterford opening but as soon as the Chef saw us, he opened the door and led us to the Bridal Suite.

The Manager came up and asked if we needed any drinks or food. They brought us some drinks while I got my makeup and hair done.

Waterford's Service the entire day was outstanding. They asked us several times what we wanted and provided it with no problems. They made suggestions for our reception once I told them my ideas. They executed everything exactly as I had asked.

The food was wonderful as well.

During the planning process, they were quick to respond to any e-mails and/or phone calls.

All the setups for the ceremony, cocktail hours and reception were better than I had imagined. It was the best value that I found from all the places we had looked at.

We had an excellent experiece at Waterford and could not be more pleased with their service, staff, food and execution.

Waterford helped make my wedding reception one that people still rave about. They accomodated to everything we needed or asked for. I was referred to this place by a coworker - and it is the best place by far for what you get for your money.

The staff was great, the food was phenomenal... the atmosphere was wonderful.

I had to give them high points for all aspects, even though we encountered a terrible thing there. We had some of our cards stolen from the gift table / card box - it ended up about $2500 worth... but I can't complain because once we started dealing with the Waterford, their insurance company kicked in and replaced the value of the items stolen. I like how now you can have a FFX County Cop there for $50/hr - I don't believe they had that available when we had our wedding - I would recommend it for peace of mind!

The Waterford makes me want to have my wedding all over again, it was so spectacular. They really give you everything you want, plus more.

When looking for a reception site, both my husband and I were impressed by the Waterford’s track record on weddings along with their service and price.

We worked with Kimberly and Chris who were in contact with us during the wedding planning.

The day of the wedding there was a small confusion regarding our seating arrangements, however the staff at the Waterford were quick and help resolve the situation.

Great place to have both your ceremony and reception (we only had our reception there). I wouldn’t recommend it if you are looking for a very private venue since there were two other wedding receptions going on during ours. The location is big enough that you don’t necessary notice the other events, but your guests will intermingle with the other guest in the main area and when using the restrooms.

Also, if you are planning to have an afternoon reception, beware that the Waterford will most likely have an evening reception right after yours is over so you may be forced to move out quickly so the staff can set up for the other event.

I LOVED the Waterford. We chose Waterford because we didn't want to do a hotel but our guest list was too big for Wolftrap, Meadowlark, etc. Waterford was not only the most affordable, but also a beautiful venue. We dealt with both Chris and Kim, and both were very nice and accommodating. We booked way back in December for our November wedding, and then didn't have contact with them until August for our tasting. We did another meeting a week before the wedding to finalize the numbers and confirm the floor plan. We did a sweetheart table and 18 10-tops in the Alexander Ballroom. The staff over there has everything down to a T and the night ran smoothly. The food is amazing -- during cocktails we had petite crab cakes (YUM), mini beef wellingtons and duck & apricot purses, along with an antipasto display. Then during the buffet dinner, we had Waterford salad, Italian roasted vegetables and steamed asparagus, garlic smashed potatoes, stuffed autumn chicken (YUM) and 3 Strip Peppercorn Steak (YUM). The bar was busy the whole night. The wait staff and captain were efficient and friendly. The room got a little warm with all of our guests and all of that dancing, but we never once heard any of the other parties going on in the venue. Overall, it was a great venue for a great price!

I got married and had my reception at the Waterford in Fairfax, Va. The ceremony was beautiful, the room was perfect, everything went off without a hitch. The food was great, all my guest loved it.

The only complaint I have was the room that I had to use to get ready in, was basically an attic upstairs, that was small, kinda dirty and only had one plug and no bathroom. The other thing that we didn't like was that my ceremony wasn't the only one going on that day so things got kind of confusing. We had to get ready in the same room as the other bride and some of our stuff got mixed up. Even some of our gifts got mixed up.

Other then that, the day went off without a hitch. I have been to the new Springfield Location and it's so much nicer.
