The Waterfall's new renovations are exquisite and the blown glass chandeliers are out of this world! Both ballrooms accommodate large guest lists and their food is absolutely amazing. Their coordinators are a pleasure to work with and their staff is super friendly. Our uplighting and monograms look fantastic in this space because of the controlled lighting. We can't wait to perform at the 10+ weddings we have on the schedule with The Waterfall this year.

I have officiated ceremonies at myriad locations in the Tri-State area, and I always have fun, and I always make the best of every circumstance. Just like a thumbprint, every personality is different, and when we serve the public as we do in the wedding industry, we often wear our heart on our sleeve. I officiated a ceremony at The Waterfall last August, 2017. From the moment I stepped into the facility for rehearsal, until the wedding was over the next evening, I have never felt so respected, catered to and loved on, like I felt by the staff and management there. In this case, my husband was a guest too, and he also observed what I did. The staff is so delightful--they work in sync with each other with the wedding party and their guests like magic--swift, helpful, happy, obliging--I was stunned at their performance. A swiss watch might have the precision that they all displayed. I want John and the staff to know how special I felt as an officiant. You were so pleasant and kind to me. The couple I married that day and the couple I married one month later at your location, both loved The Waterfall experience. I will continue to share my story with engaged couples I work with--thanks a million! "LD" Lynda Daring - Officiant Daring Celebrations & Ceremonies Newark, Delaware

I really love The Waterfall. I have done one wedding there and am schedule for another wedding for 2018. It has the environment that produces a dream wedding image and the staff is very friendly and cooperative. Couldn't ask for better in DE. Please consider this venue if you are in MD, Philly or DE.

A beautiful venue with authentic Italian cuisine. Hands-on owners who work closely with their staff to provide excellent service. A gem in Claymont not to be missed!
