The Waterford has an excellent staff and great management. It was very easy to deal with them during our wedding planning and they are very flexible in any changes that you would like to make. My husband and I have no complaints about how our wedding went! I would definitely recommend The Waterford to anyone in the area that is looking for a great reception hall with good food.

The Waterford at Springfield was the venue of choice when we were searching for a location for our wedding. The location of this venue was easy to find and accessible.

I highly recommend this location to all my family, friends, co workers and anyone looking to have an event.

The Waterford staff particularly Kevin, Nerisha and the head chef were extremely nice...they made sure all our needs were attended to in a timely fashion. I called Kevin several times and he always responded with such professionalism. I only had one negative encounter with who I later found out was one of the owners who was very rude on the phone and ended up hanging up on me which threw me for a loop...the staff later explained that it was out of character for him and he was "going through a lot", if it wasn't for the the consistent professional treatment prior I would lose my mind because there is absolutely no excuse...people have bad days...the customer should never know that...I believe his name was Alex. Like I said, Kevin and Nerisha who you would be dealing with on a regular basis for your event are always professional and so very helpful...they make the quality of service at this place...they rock!
The Waterford gets an A plus for responsiveness and flexibility...the payment schedule was well laid out and I was able to call Kevin to authorize payments with no problems at all...very convenient and I never had to wait to talk to a staff member...even if I left a message, they called back in a timely manner.
The value...I like that they offer some "all inclusive" packages...I thought the food could have been better...it was great at the tasting but at the event, it was a little "cafeteria bordering"...I think an upgrade to the menu is due. It may be my Jamaican taste buds that call for a little more seasoning though because the guests didn't complain(not sure they would). We had a brisket and chicken dish. The Chef is very willing to work with clients to create a dish that suits your taste which was a plus. Overall the Waterford was very nice...the staff was great at the actual wedding as well...very attentive to my husband and I. We had a blast and everything was handled expertly!

The Waterford at Springfield provides an exquisite venue to hold a wedding or any elaborate event. The ambiance with the crystal chandelier made the event that much more beautiful. My daughter's wedding was held there and the service provided was great. The food was excellent. The staff catered to our every need and was very courteous and professional.

I waited a month to calm down before reviewing the Waterford. The venue is beautiful and has good food. However, Nerisha made a few inexcusable mistakes during our wedding. She then denied any wrong doing or responsibility. It all started when we paid her the balance. Once Nerisha had the money she stopped talking to me. That isn't helpful the week before or of a wedding. Consequently she forgot to tell me that the bridal room they "let" me use would be changed for the morning of my event. The confusion caused a delay that had me running to the church like a mad woman. The stress showed in my expensive prep photos. Nerisha also forgot to tell event staff that the cake was to be moved to the dance floor for the cutting. I had to correct them, and in the rush we ended up on the wrong side of it. Then she forgot the numerous discussions we had on stopping open bar during dinner, even though my husband, mother, and aunt witnessed the first discussion. It was important to me that the open bar run from 5:30-7:30 and 8:30-10:30 so that the 4 hours would last the entire night without ending the party early. The only question was whether I would want wine service during the dinner hour, which I decided against. She didn't take note of this and the event manager didn't stop the service. So at 9:30 they approached my husband asking for $400 to continue the bar. I was furious given the other events and yelled at him for extorting us. They negotiated to not charge us, but to end the bar at 10, thereby ending the party early. I apologized for losing my temper realizing it was not his fault but Nerisha's. Oh btw for the rehearsal they didn't even realize their sound system can play from phones or computers, my husband had to buy a cable and show them how it worked. I still can't believe she wouldn't take responsibility for her incompetence.

Waterford at Springfield responded with the following comments:

Unfortunately, once in a long while a company must deal with an unreasonable customer. This is an example of such a situation.

Waterford made several “bend over backwards” accommodations to please this customer, both before and during her reception, including a discount due to the fact that her mother worked for one of our good corporate customers.
Waterford categorically denies this customer’s negative assertions regarding our service during the reception. In fact, we have the documentation to prove that we repeatedly and clearly explained weeks in advance why we could not and would not agree to a number of her demands.
Sadly, on the day of the reception, this customer was exceedingly rude to not only our staff but also to another Waterford bride.
As anyone can see by reading the vast majority of our reviews on this site, Waterford is well known for providing great service at a great price and always going the extra mile for our brides. However, even that is not enough to please unique customers such as this one.

Before I booked this venue, I had read a google review that warned me that another wedding could be taking place at the same time as mine and that they tend to clear the dinner service early. Even with that warning, I booked the Waterford, but unfortunately I did experience those two things as well.

They helped to make the planning process go pretty well, but it was the service during the wedding that I was not thrilled with. I was told the tables and centerpieces would be set up by 11 am the day of the wedding, but when we arrived to set up, only the tables were set up. After waiting a couple of hours for set up to be completed by the Waterford, the bridesmaids and family had to finish the set up because time was running out.

I was told that the plated dinner service could be delivered in 30 minutes, which I needed to do because my photographer was leaving before the wedding ended. The dinner service ended up taking almost 2 hours, and lucky for me my photographer was willing to work with me.

In the end, I had a beautiful wedding and the Waterford was a nice bang for my buck. I would only recommend this venue for a friend having a wedding on a budget. If you can afford to go somewhere else, I would suggest that.
