The Watermill made our wedding dreams come true!

My wife and I could not possibly say enough about The Watermill. To say they made all of our wedding dreams come true, would be a tremendous understatement. The staff, from top to bottom, went above and beyond to be generous, accommodating, and exceed high expectations. Robert and Sean’s efforts as manager and maitre’d were absolute top tier; they acted as if it were their own children celebrating their wedding. We have also conferred with guests at every table, all of whom state the service was exceptional and everyone was satisfied every moment from start to finish. The bartenders easily managed our very many guests with ease, at no point was there a line of guests waiting to be served. Our bridal attendant, Christina, was truly phenomenal. As a busy bride and groom, she sought after all of our needs and catered to every request. She absolutely deserves all of our praise. We have been to many weddings as a couple, many at renowned venues stemming across multiple parts of the country. Absolutely nobody could match the service and food that The Watermill provides. The cocktail hour and dinner was of a superior class; our guests could not believe how delicious and well prepared the food was. From the hors d’oeuvres to the dessert and everything in between, we could not be more impressed. My wife and I will recommend The Watermill for the rest of our lives. It is a beautiful establishment with a hardworking and friendly staff. We are so incredibly grateful for The Watermill and making our dream wedding come true.

Best Service at Watermill Caterers

We had our wedding on 4/20/24 at the Watermill and it was the most perfect day.

Starting with our very first conversations with Brian to the seamless execution on the day of, everything went perfectly as planned. Brian worked with us to fine tune all of the specifics for our special day and made himself available at all times to answer our thousands of questions.

On the day of the wedding, we were introduced to Johnny (Matre D), Erika (Bridal Attendant) & Nelson (Captain) and they truly went above and beyond to make everything perfect. We have never felt so special/been surrounded with such amazing service. They were always five steps ahead of us ensuring everything was running smoothly and most of all, that we were happy – which we were for the entire day.

We are so thrilled that we decided to go with the Watermill as they made our special day absolutely amazing. We cannot recommend this venue enough!

Thank you to the entire team – we will never forget you all!
