The Watson House
My husband and I were guests at a wedding held at the Watson House. My first reaction pulling in was...WOW! The views are breathtaking, the grounds are immaculate, the house...gorgeous. We were immediately greeted by a welcoming staff member who directed us where to go for the ceremony. The ceremony overlooked the beautiful Bogue Sound. Due to the tremendous hard work of The Watson House staff, the entire evening was seamless... from ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, first dances, cake cutting to send off, everything was amazing! The Watson House is THE premier venue for weddings on the Crystal Coast!Sent on 06/29/2019

Magical, Memorable, and Fun!!!
Our daughter and "son", Mary Savarese and Jacob Barnes were married here in October 2019. Stephanie and Brian were amazing hosts and ensured everything was perfect for the wedding. Debbie and her team worked diligently to make their magic for a beautiful and spectacular event, despite the tropical storm that blew through the area the night before the wedding! We could not have chosen a more perfect venue! Thank you for everything. We truly feel like we were part of a very special family from start to finish!Sent on 12/07/2019
