    Trust Them for the Perfect Wedding Experience!

    WEG is the best venue from start to finish. Look, people will remember the food, alcohol, and music at your wedding, and WEG ensured that the reception experience was stellar at every turn.

    The space is gorgeous; the staff is thorough and courteous; and the food is OUT OF THIS WORLD. People are STILL talking about how delicious everything was! The fresh mozzarella bar and the Venetian dessert hour were HUGE hits. The bartenders were befriended by our groomsmen and I hear the drinks were great (do yourself a favor, don't drink on your wedding day). Your guests will have a sterling experience at WEG.

    Michele is all-world! The best coordinator ever! She is accessible 24/7, always kind and enthusiastic, and has answers for everything. She is also a great resource for other vendors and how to navigate those decisions. I was in such capable hands with her. I felt like she had become part of the family by the end of it! Additionally, every time I was there, Sal and JoAnn were present to me and very welcoming. JoAnn was even the one who bustled my dress at the reception! That's how involved everyone at WEG is. I simply cannot recommend them highly enough!

    The Gold Standard of Weddings

    We recently had our daughter’s wedding at WatersEdge at Giovanni’s in April 2019. Everything was perfect. There isn’t anything we would do differently.

    Everything was wonderful, especially the delicious food, wait staff and an amazing bridal coordinator, Michelle.

    People often ask us what was the best part about our daughter’s wedding day and for both of us it was the fact that we didn’t have to worry about anything. Michelle was in total control - working very closely with the vendors. Their operation is smooth and slick, the co-ordination they have with their staff and vendors is amazing It was an incredible feeling to know that we could relax and enjoy the day knowing everything was going smoothly and our guests were all enjoying themselves. 

    Months later we still receive endless comments about how good the food noting it was the best wedding they’ve ever attended. WEG sets the bar very high and exceeded all our expectations.
