From the second you pull into the driveway, you are blown away by this amazing venue. And then you meet Stephanie and her unbelievable team, and you know that this is the place that you have to get married. You can not beat this venue and staff. From the location, to the wedding planning, to the little details and flowers that Stephanie provides, you and your guests will never attend anything like the Watson House. The Watson's and their team think of every single detail and by the end of the planning you feel like you are part of their family. My guests will never be able to stop talking about this venue. I know I won't! Wish I could have my wedding here every single weekend!! Such a fairytale wedding!!Sent on 09/18/2017

The Watson House has gorgeous sound views from their beautifully landscaped 7 acre estate that are truly extraordinary-you can also see the most amazing sunsets there. The Watson House and their "Dream Team" orchestrated the most perfect wedding ceremony that I could have possibly imagined for my son and his new bride. I was thrilled when they chose The Watson House for their wedding venue.
The ceremony area overlooks the Bogue Sound and was so charming with its custom floral decorated arbors, elegant chandelier and vintage church pews. One of my favorites was the reception/ dance space- it was equally as beautiful and featured a closed in area with grapevine ceiling with twinkling lights and exquisite chandeliers. Everyone loved the beautifully decorated farmhouse tables adorned with stunning arrangements designed by The Watson House floral designers. Stephanie, Debbie, Dani and Regan were very accommodating to our guests as well as the wedding party and family members and made sure that all arrangements went as planned. They have many years of experience and it shows.
Everything was absolutely perfect!!!
I had the pleasure of working at The Watson House and it is spectacular!
The Watson House is a exquisite wedding venue unlike any other on Emerald Isle. Stephanie Watson and her staff go above and beyond to make the bride,groom,and their families feel special. They are easy to work with in making my cake deliveries smooth and easy. Highly recommend this venue and group of professionals to handle your every wish and wedding dream!
The Watson House team always exceeds expectations. As a wedding photographer, I am always inspired creatively when I have the opportunity to photograph there.
