Out of this world dreamy
NOTHING ELSE LIKE IT! Wedding venue, planner, floral team, furniture, etc. all in one! We feel so incredibly lucky that we were able to get married at this secret gem of a place! We still cannot get over how beautiful every single detail of our wedding day was here. We had zero stress the entire day and every single guest would not stop raving about how magical this venue was! They have every detail figured out! We dropped off everything for the venue days beforehand so we wouldn't have to worry about anything the weekend of our wedding. The owner, Stephanie Watson, took it upon herself to make home-made brunch for all of the ladies when we arrived on wedding day, and we relaxed on the scenic property until it was time for hair/make-up. Pre-ceremony was so dreamy and fun, and the wedding itself was so the most amazing experience of our lives. Anything we wanted to incorporate into our wedding, this team made happen! WORTH EVERY PENNY! And your money is supporting an absolutely amazing family and group of people! Thank you to every single one of you!!! We love you guys!Sent on 05/15/2021

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

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.
