If you're looking to step outside the box on a venue that speaks volumes, Surge on the Water is the place to have your event! The minute I walked into the space, I knew it was the look I wanted and when it was all decorated, it was even more than I had expected! I was allowed to add extra touches that included cultural traditions with no fuss, which I loved! It speaks for itself....my guests were so happy to be able to walk out on the patio and enjoy the evening.Sent on 07/14/2016

Having our wedding at surg on the water was everything we hoped for and more. We had the ceremony and reception there, which was nice for our guests to be in the same place the whole day. The ceremony was gorgeous and we loved being right on the water! Everything ran completely smooth the entire day. Nicole made sure everything with the ceremony went perfect! She came up to us several times throughout the night to make sure everything was going as planned. There were many many staff members that assisted with food, desert, clean up, etc. who were very nice and quick. The entire day was nothing short of what we envisioned our day to look like! The food was phenomenal and the cake/cupcakes were amazing. We can’t stop eating our cake! We would definitely have many more events here!Sent on 06/28/2018

Having our wedding at SURG was a dream come true! The venue is beautiful and the location is even better. The deck was the perfect place for our guests to mingle and hang out, and we were able to get some stunning pictures! Due to rain, we had to have our ceremony inside, where Andrea and the staff were able to flip the room and made sure everything went smoothly as we went into cocktail hour. The food was incredible we got so many compliments! They were even able to accommodate our late night snack request for a tater tot bar. I also can’t say enough wonderful things about working with Andrea. She was easy to work with and always responded to emails promptly. I trusted her completely and she and the staff at SURG did not disappoint. If we could get married again, we would do it all over again SURG.Sent on 11/03/2017
