    We had our Oct 23, 2016 wedding and reception at The Waterfront Inn. It was PERFECT! All of the staff was terrific. Everyone made sure that our ceremony and reception went seamlessly. We could not have picked a better place. They handled everything for us (food, decorations, bar, seating, organizing). We did almost everything via email and met with them 2 days before our wedding to iron out last minute details. They literally made sure we had a stress free day. They had great ideas on the decorations and I have to say I was extremely impressed on how gorgeous everything was. If you are looking for a ceremony by the water with the sun set in view, This is the place. No stress wedding planning, they handle it for you. You let them know what you want or are thinking and they make it happen. I just cannot express how happy we are. We had the most perfect wedding ceremony and reception and The Waterfront Inn staff is who helped to make that happen.

    Becky the event coordinator, Aimee banquet manager and Joline and the rest of wait staff and bartender were OUTSTANDING!!!! the Waterfront Inn is outstanding, The Villages, Florida. They are part of what I call the DREAM TEAM of wedding vendors -If you are having a wedding in or around Ocala you really need to have it at the Waterfront Inn, I did not have to worry about anything weeks leading up to and the day of the wedding, also part of our wedding DREAM TEAM WERE Justin at Florida DJ's, Monica and Alex at Wonshot Photography, Amelia with Pixel Pro for photo booth, Wendy with Our Simply Ceremony.
    The Waterfront Inn accommodated all of our out of state family at a discounted rate, set up a private day after brunch, and dinner for 30 on a short notice. The staff and Management were outstanding and made the whole week beautiful. I could not have done this without any of you, as the mother of the bride I did not have to stress about anything on my daughters wedding day!!!!
