    The best venue

    We recently had our wedding reception at the Waters Edge Resort and Spa. We are a covid couple, and this was our 4th wedding date. Before finding Waters Edge our wedding planning was stressful and we spent countless hours trying to make backup plans due to the pandemic. When we found Waters Edge, everything changed. They were so incredibly flexible that we suddenly began getting excited for our day, something we hadn't felt in over a year. They coordinated every aspect of it and were so flexible with guest counts, meal changes, menu options, table setups and last minute cancellations of guests. They turned what was a really sad start to wedding planning into the most beautiful day I could have ever imagined. We worked directly with Ariana and her team. I cannot speak highly enough of her. She is kind, flexible, accommodating, and is a true professional in this field. For the day of, we had Jenny and Maureen as our staff. They did everything from fixing my hair, to bustling my dress, to making sure we sat down to eat, to replacing our drinks when the ice melted. Every single detail of the day was perfect. They gave us choices throughout the day, and handled all communication with our vendors. We sat back, ate so much food, and enjoyed our day with our family and friends. It is abundantly clear as to why Waters Edge has been around for so long, they clearly have weddings down to a science. I wish many other venues could look to them as an example of how to plan and host weddings during this time. We are so overcome with gratitude for their amazing team. There was not a single thing I would change about our wedding. Waters Edge is simply the best. A huge thank you to every single person who went above and beyond to make our day what it was. They made the dream I have always had, come to life! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Water's Edge Resort and Spa's reply:

    You and Jason were absolutely wonderful to work with. We appreciate your kind words and so happy that you were pleased with our services. We loved hosting your family and friends for such a beautiful celebration. We hope to see you again in the future!

    Fantastic venue with even better wedding team!

    My husband and I began planning our October 2020 wedding at Water’s Edge in 2018 with Nancy, one of their wedding coordinators. From the beginning Nancy was very responsive and answered any questions we had. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we had to change our plans. We heard so many horror stories about other venues so we were nervous when we decided to move our date, but Nancy couldn’t have been more accommodating. Her only goal was making sure we had exactly the wedding we had dreamed of—and that’s exactly what happened. We still got married in 2020 but pushed our reception back one year to October 2021 and did a vow renewal ceremony. Our whole wedding party, parents, etc made a weekend out of it and stayed at the resort and we had our rehearsal dinner in one of their ballrooms. Everything was perfect from the minute we walked into the door. Our vow renewal ceremony and reception was exactly what we had dreamed of when we booked Water’s Edge in 2018. There was some rain the day of our ceremony and Nancy was very communicative through the entire day, watching the weather, and helping us decide what to do. During our reception, we had 2 attendants dedicated to us to make sure we had drinks, we ate, etc—they were fantastic!
    Our guests raved about the delicious food, and what an incredible time they had and I believe that is because of how great everyone at Water’s Edge is.
    Thank you Nancy and the entire Water’s Edge team for an incredible wedding, and weekend!!
