    Words can't even describe how thankful we are for both Lauren and Scott with Waterfront Event Center. They did everything right and made our special day one we will never forget. From the beginning, Lauren was easily accessible to answer questions, provide vendor listings to help with planning and make recommendations to ensure our wedding and reception went off without a hitch. We're so thankful for their help all the way through to our reception send-off (Scott even saved the day by providing us with a beautiful backdrop for our photo booth on the day of). Not only is the venue a stunning location for a wedding with its beautiful views of the bay and Moody Gardens, but the management really cares about each bride/groom. They make planning an event of a lifetime easy, and that's not an easy task to accomplish. The level of care was certainly felt! I'd recommend Waterfront Event Center for anyone looking for a personalized small- to medium-sized wedding (up to 125 guests). Wouldn't have changed a single thing!
