The Waterfront at Silver Birches, formerly Ehrhardt's Waterfront Banquet Center, is proud of our tradition of providing an exquisite location for a lovely wedding. Our dedicated staff delivers on the promise that “the only thing we overlook is the lake”. From pre-event planning to execution there is always a member of our experienced team to assist you with the important details – from the ceremony and cocktail hour to the dinner and wedding cake because we know that it is the combined details that make every Waterfront wedding special.

The Waterfront is the only location on Wallenpaupack that can host Poconos wedding for up to 250 guests in an immaculate setting with both comfort and elegance. These Pocono wedding packages are designed to offer menu choices and budgets to fit the needs and style of every bride. Although we can’t claim credit for the awe-inspiring sunsets we do acknowledge that they enhance the romance of the day. Our photo gallery proves that “a picture says a thousand words”.

A wide variety of Pocono wedding packages are also available, ranging from a sit-down dinner or lavish buffet to a “Stations” reception. Packages can be customized to create a unique one-of-a-kind wedding. Your guests will always remember a wedding reception at The Waterfront.

The Waterfront wedding coordinator pays close attention to even the smallest detail and will help you plan your day, from selecting menus, colors and flower arrangements to the wedding cake and ice sculptures.

An accessible shoreline and lakeside deck provide a stunning natural backdrop for memorable photographs or an outdoor ceremony.

When I met Karen and her assistant, Ashley, at Ehrhardt's back in January, I immediately knew they were the ones to help me plan my wedding! Karen's sincerity and welcoming, warm personality reassured me that my wedding was not just going to be another "job" for her. She really does care about each and every couple and makes it her personal prerogative to ensure you have the best day ever! She is very friendly and personable and will do everything in her power to give you the day you dream of. She bent over backwards a few times for us to accommodate our wedding day needs. As for the serving staff, my guests could not rave enough about their excellent service! After the wedding, my guests gave me personal accounts of when a server went above and beyond their duty to help them with something. My guests also raved about the quality of food! It was just so delicious and the portions were huge! My wedding day was perfect because it seriously was stress free. The Ehrhardt's staff set up our ceremony inside because of cold weather, then served the appetizers to smoothly move guests to the bar area so they could quickly set up the dining room with my centerpieces and favors included in maybe a 15 minute time frame. I've never seen a room transform so quickly and beautifully. This staff knows their stuff and all the rules of hospitality. The staff was very friendly and helpful towards my guests and made our night so enjoyable because we felt like we were taking care of at all times. Karen kept our wedding timeline punctual. She smoothly transitioned us from ceremony, to reception. I never had to talk to any of my service people because she took care of everything and kept my photographers, videographer and DJ all on the same page and timeline. I cannot thank Karen and her staff enough for our perfect wedding day! You will not be disappointed if you decide to get married at Ehrhardt's!

I cannot say enough about Silver Birches. My husband and I spent 16 months planning an outdoor wedding and then it rained. The staff at Silver Birches made sure that we still had a perfect day. They were very kind and accommodating, and did a wonderful job transforming our space from ceremony to reception. Karen and Ashley are absolutely wonderful. They were with me every step of the way and I couldn't have done it without them! We received countless compliments the night of or wedding from the food, to the venue to the staff. All of our guests loved it. One of the questions we were asked most often was "how did you find this place?". Silver Birches is truly a hidden gem. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and my husband and I are already counting the days until our return.

There are not enough words to say how thankful we are that Jess and Erik chose Ehrhardts for their wedding. From Karen's help on Day 1 to the event itself, we could not have asked for more. Everyone was pleasant and helpful, the banquet hall was beautiful, and the food was outstanding. Since it was off-season and the guests could stay on-site, it became not only a wedding but a weekend reunion, and many guests said they'd like to return. We are so happy they chose an off-season date!

In short, the most common comment we heard was "Best wedding ever!"

Thanks again for everything!

I cannot say enough what a beautiful venue this was to have my wedding! The ceremony took place outside and had a gorgeous view of the lake! The layout of the banquet center was perfect and also had a gorgeous view of the lake with a private deck that guests could enjoy. The food was phenomenal! I received nothing but compliments from the wide assortment of food and beverage options. I loved how the venue was able to provide not just the location, but also the food and open bar options I was looking for. Tax and gratuity were all included within their package pricing which made the budget planning so much easier with no hidden costs or surprises! I also loved working with the wedding coordinator, Karen, who was an absolute delight to work with! She really paid close attention to all of my requests and details, and everyone from Ehrhardt's staff were more than willing to accommodate special requests to make the day exactly what I wanted! I would have to say that everything was worth the price because I had zero stress, and it was absolutely gorgeous and unforgettable! Not only will you gain a gorgeous wedding with this venue, but you'll gain relationships with this staff that will have you going back long after your wedding for food and fun! Thank you again to all at Ehrhardt's!

My wife and I selected Ehrhardt's for our wedding on Sept. 25, 2015 and we could not have been happier with the decision. We had never heard of the place before, but we selected based on both our preference for the venue as well as the positive reviews we saw online. This is yet another positive review. We're probably going to mirror a lot of things that had been said before, but we're going to give credit where it is due. For starters, Karen, the wedding planner, is fantastic. She's extremly personable and was always available for any questions we had. We had no worries that anything was going to go wrong and sure enough, nothing did. Having that kind of confidence alone was worth selecting the venue, but it didn't end there. The banquet hall itself was very inviting and with the deck outside, it gave our guests plenty of room to move around. Nothing felt crowded or congested in terms of the available space. That may seem like a trivial thing to say, but it was important to us. And you can't beat that view of the lake. Saving the best for last, we'll talk about the food. In a word, it was fantastic. Our guests had many positive things to say about Ehrhardt's, but we undoubtedly heard the most praise about the food. We opted for the Stations package, which apparently is their most popular. After having seen the spread, we can see why. There wasn't anything we selected that was less tasty than any of the other options and there was more than enough food to go around. Another added bonus was the fact that the lodging is on the same grounds as the venue, so none of our overnight guests needed to drive anywhere to get back to their rooms. This obviously made having an afterparty quite an easy affair. In closing, we can only speak in accolades about the venue, the food and the staff.

Our wedding at Ehrhardt's was perfect! It was the exact balance of nature for me and air conditioning for my summer wedding guests! From the time that we officially decided on Ehrhardt's (two years in advance!) to our wedding day, the staff at Ehrhardt's was exceptional. I got so many compliments from wedding guests that this was the best wedding food that they had ever had and that the venue itself was gorgeous. Karen was an angel that we could not have imagined everything going so smoothly without her!
