So So pleased to have used Watermark as my reception site. My day turned out just as I had hoped it would. The venue is just beautiful. It was recently renovated and turned out gorgeous. Mid-way through wedding planning, a new event manager was hired and she took over helping us make our choices. I was a little concerned having a new person start, but Chapparel was great. She was so responsive and answered any questions I had!

The food at Watermark is very good. They have a great selection of entrees and appetizers and my guests raved out them all. It's nice to know you're not serving boring banquet food!

The grounds are beautiful and we were able to take pictures on the course right outside the main building. So nice!

Overall, I have no complaints and I'd recommend Watermark to anyone looking for a nice facility to hold their wedding reception.

Watermark is so simple and elegant, an excellent value with no room rental fee. The views of the golfcourse are certainly ideal. The staff is very warm and they do everything in their power to make your day very special.

May 2011, we had our son's rehearsal dinner at the FireRock Room at Watermark Properties' FireRock Grille Restaurant. It was a BIG disappointment, and for reasons listed below, down-right embarrassing.

(BTW: We did send a note of dissatisfaction along with our check for final payment and deliberately waited to hear from them before posting a review. But, we never heard a word of concern back from either FireRock Grille or Watermark Properties. They did, however, cash our check.)

Door to loud dish room left open. After a full half-hour, my husband had to finally get up and tell them to close the door to the very loud dish room and keep it closed. (That was horrible...especially, I'm sure, for the people seated right near the service door.)

Tacky sundae bar. Because we had children present, we thought it would be fun to have a sundae bar after the prime-rib dinner. And at the price we paid, we of course assumed it would be presented in a tasteful, appealing manner. Nope! Not even worth describing...just pathetiic.

Centerpiece candles and mirrors NOT there. The candles and mirrors that were to be provided at center of tables were not there upon our arrival. So, outside of place settings, the tables were BARE! Fortunately, we brought very full flowers as center pieces which were supposed to be in addition to the candles/mirrors.

Lighting. Though there was plenty of light through the big, beautiful windows when we arrived, as the sun set there was no compensation for the dimming light, especially since there were no candles on the tables! By the time, people left, it looked as though the place was closed and we didn't know how to turn lights up or down.

Though it's a beautiful place with a beautiful view...what they deliver is NOT worth it!

Our wedding reception at the Watermark was wonderful. The food was great and all of our guests were amazed at how quick and effecient the kitchen/waitstaff were. Everyone got their food at once and it was all steaming hot. I did ask for a vegan meal for some of my guests that came out as just vegetarian but when I mentioned to it waitstaff they had new vegan meals out in minutes and my friends said they were amazing.

I was a little disappointed with the communication with events coordinator before the wedding. It was just a littler bit harder to get a returned call or email from her than I would have liked. That being said she did always get back to me and was very helpful. I was also very please that I was able to drop off all the my decor items the day before the wedding and the staff did all the set up according to the directions.

I am glad I had my recception here and would do it again.
