3/29/24 Wedding

I had my wedding at Watermill Caterers on 3/29/24 and I have to say it was the wedding of my dreams. Since the beginning when booking with Brian the whole experience has been nothing but amazing. All questions were answered quickly and Brian was extremely helpful. Nick was our maître D and I have to say he went above and beyond our expectations. He was extremely helpful, had our wedding extremely organized and on time. I can’t thank Nick enough! we had Christina and Dominic as our bridal attendees. Christina was absolutely fantastic! She made sure everyone was taken care of and it just blew my mind how much she was involved with making sure everything ran smoothly. She even bustled my dress! Dominic was great as well he made sure the drinks were flowing! The food was outstanding! Till this day my guests are still raving about the food and are stating that it was the best wedding they have ever been to! That is all thanks to the Watermill and the wonderful staff! I’m so happy we decided with this venue because it was perfect! Thank you Watermill!!!

Wow wow wow

WOW. WOW. WOW. Is all I can say about our experience at the Watermill. From the start of our booking our special day with Brian Fingerman, to our finals appointments, showcase events, planning, and finally to the best day of our lives, Brian was there every single step of the way. He was even present to congratulate us on our wedding day and EVEN after our wedding to make sure every detail was taken care of. Besides Brian, the entire staff at the Watermill from our Maitre d Sean, to our bridal attendant Morgan were all beyond professional and made our day truly seamless! The food was RAVED about by all of our guests! We would forever and always recommend anyone to Watermill for their special day!

The most perfect evening!

I’m not normally one to write reviews but I just HAD to give it up for Watermill Caterers! We had our ceremony and reception at Watermill in March 2024. Everything was perfect! Not a single thing went wrong! They truly listen to what you envision for your big day and execute it perfectly! Our bridal attendant Christina was completely on top of everything, I never had to lift a finger or worry about anything! Johnny our “captain” was so wonderful and down to earth! He helped make sure everything ran smoothly! Our maître d Nick kept all of the night’s events perfectly scheduled! Watermill is a well-oiled machine! You will not be disappointed booking your wedding here! Be sure to book with the sales person Robert! He was so kind and welcoming, answering any texts and questions we had! The food was incredible! Every entree got raving reviews from our guests! The building and grounds are so well- maintained that you have nothing to worry about for your pictures!
