About The Waterfall Catering & Special Events

When you host your ceremony at the Waterfall Catering & Special Events, a wedding venue located in Claymont, Delaware, you will get to experience a truly romantic escape. Even though you and your guests will be situated just a few minutes away from the big city of Philadelphia, you will feel as if you are in a tucked away garden setting. This intimate escape can also be used for bridal showers, engagement parties, and receptions.

Facilities and Capacity
The exterior garden areas at the Waterfall Catering & Special Events is filled with blooming plants and lush greenery. Eye-catching details like ornate columns and a gently cascading fountain fill the space. You and your guests can slip away to the gazebo or walk across the little arched bridge. This peaceful and meticulously designed garden space provides the perfect backdrop for all of your wedding photograph needs. The interior of this venue is just as elegant and refined as the exterior. There are two ballrooms inside for couples to choose from: the Grand Ballroom and the Cascade Ballroom. The Grand Ballroom, which can accommodate up to 500 of your friends and family, is simply elegant with its crystal chandeliers and marble dance floor. This spacious dance floor is perfect for dancing the night away with your guests. Your other option, the Cascade Ballroom, can accommodate up to 325 guests. You and your guests will really get a taste of the outdoors in this space because it lets in plenty of natural light and leads straight out into the garden areas. Even though both spaces are designed differently, they both provide couples with an elegant backdrop in which to exchange their vows and celebrate their big day.

    My venue search

    The waterfall was my second venue I attended ( I saw 13) and I loved everything about this place. The outside is beautiful and they have a waterfall that’s will fit into all my picture opportunities. As soon as you walk through the doors of the Waterfall you fall in love. I wanted a sunset wedding and this venue was able to provide that for me. I cannot wait to say my I do’s and have an amazing time with friends and family

    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.
