Loved holding my wedding at Blue Harbor even in the middle of a pandemic! They helped catered to my atypical idea for food stations and absolutely nailed it! Everyone has been raving about the food and saying it was the best wedding the ever went to! If I could do it all again I'd definitely do it again here! Beautiful venue, great staff, on-site lodging, waterpark! It was everything we needed all rolled into one, made it soooo easy and perfect for our day!Sent on 09/24/2020

Beautiful Lake Venue
Choosing Blue Harbor for our wedding reception was one of the best choices we made for our wedding. Leading up to the day, Paulette, their coordinator, was very responsive with every question we had and on top of all of our deadlines. Between her and all of the rest of the catering staff our night went off without any issues. Not only is the staff amazing, the space is absolutely beautiful! Having our reception right on the lake was absolutely amazing. We would recommend Blue Harbor in a heartbeat.Sent on 10/16/2020

The first time I met Paulette, she told me that she expected Blue Harbor and her team to exceed my expectations. I didn’t think much of it until after my wedding when I realized they did just that. I am a 2020 Bride- my wedding was originally at the end of May and was changed to August. Paulette worked through the struggles with us rather than trying to nickel and dime us on anything she could. She had reasonable solutions to everything and I was overall impressed with Blue Harbor’s response to COVID and postponement of the wedding. Paulette answered my questions promptly, often picked up her phone on the first call (rather than needing to play phone tag), and worked out every detail with me. The day of the wedding I didn’t see her much. Once I was introduced to my waitress, Jaime (who took great care of us at the head table), I asked her if Paulette was even at the event. She pointed Paulette in the back of the ballroom. Everything went without problems and I hope Paulette was standing there happy knowing she sure did exceed our expectations. She followed up promptly later in the week and was available for the final bill. I cannot say enough great things about her and Blue Harbor is lucky to have them as part of their team.
Paulette met me just before our rehearsal to sign the final estimated “bill.” As a bride that was definitely caught up in the moment, I did miss a few lines that were not what we discussed and ultimate had added charges after the wedding. Ultimately, I signed all pages, but after the fact and when bringing this up to Paulette, she was quick to resolve the issue we presented her with. There were a few other lines we didn’t mention because of the small amount and our satisfaction with her fixing the larger amount difference. I would recommend that whoever is paying the bill comes to the rehearsal dinner 15 minutes early to review EVERYTHING- or review the one emailed even a few days earlier (which I have to admit I didn’t as I was traveling to get to WI and got caught up in the pre wedding activities).
We also worked closely with Martina and Kendall with room blocks. Blue Harbor requires a 90% attrition which is a bit difficult in planning and was even more so with COVID. Fortunately, Blue Harbor worked with us regarding room blocks as well. While Blue Harbor is indeed a business, their staff made us feel as though they had our interest a priority rather than money. For that we appreciate them and recommend them without hesitation.
We stayed in a 4 room villa that was lake front. The villa was surely dated but served the purpose. The villas were in a great location however we were a bit concerned regarding the cleanliness, especially during a pandemic. My mother cleaned frequently touched areas (such as the railing on stairs) in which the Lysol wipe turned black- definitely confirming their “Healthy BLUE Program” was not strictly adhered to. There were many dead bugs that were plastered on the outside of the building by the doors and around the light posts that I thought could have been cleaned up especially considering we were getting ready for a wedding there were professional photography and videography there. The BH team did seem receptive to other advice or concerns and therefore we have trust that these issues will be addressed with their team and it will be resolved in the near future for any potential guests.
Thank you, again, Paulette and BH team. Our guests had endless amounts of compliments of the weekend. My 86-year-old grandpa told me he had one of the best filets EVER, others have said it was the best wedding they ever attended.
