Two brides approve this message! :)
Water's Edge was the perfect wedding venue for my wife and I. Living in Boston, and with some family/friends based in NJ and central CT, the location was ideal. And that view? Really can't beat it, with the price range we had. We were lucky enough to have perfect weather, but if it had rained I know the staff would have handled Plan B perfectly- a big reason we chose this venue. As a same sex couple. we were a little nervous during the venue search. However, we were greeted by Water's Edge staff with open arms, and treated with respect from day 1. Sadly not the case with all vendors in CT. Things we especially loved: minimal decorations were needed because the grounds are already gorgeous, and the Royal Ballroom was recently updated as of April 2019. We rented a villa (two bedrooms, two bathrooms, large living space and kitchen area, and private water front balcony). At check-in they provide golf cart service and will help with carrying all of your bags, too. (My parents really appreciated this service). My wife and I got ready here in separate bedrooms of the villa- no stress, no worries with logistics. One stop shop. We had our rehearsal dinner onsite, hosted a wedding morning yoga session (led by a friend) by the Gazebo with 20 of our closest girlfriends, then hosted a champagne toast/continental breakfast afterwards in our villa. It made our wedding day feel more like an epic weekend instead of just a 5 hour event. If this venue is in your price range, I highly recommend!! Thank you, Nancy and Emma, for taking care of us, and for being calm and collected. Just what two brides needed on their wedding day :)Sent on 10/03/2019

I can’t say enough about how amazing Water’s Edge was during the entire wedding process. Ariana was so helpful and prompt when answering all of my emails and phone calls, I always felt like they had everything under control. Ariana was able to accommodate anything that we asked - if we wanted certain au d’oeuvres, cake, or a certain type of beer - they were able to make sure we were satisfied and happy. They made sure everything went smoothly the day of and every request we made was done. From being there as soon as we got off the party bus, to putting out the flip flops for our guests exactly when we asked them to, Ariana handled it all. I highly recommend Ariana and everyone at Waters Edge for your wedding. Besides the most gorgeous venue and view, they really make sure everything is handled exactly how you want it to so the bride and groom don’t have to worry about a thing!Sent on 10/18/2019

Best wedding venue in CT!!!
Water's Edge Resort & Spa was able to give us the feel of a "destination wedding" without all of the travel. Our wedding day was magical and made even better by the wonderful services at Water's Edge Resort & Spa. Our wedding coordinator, Ariana, was in contact with me and my mother throughout the process of getting everything scheduled and arranged. Upon arriving at Water's Edge, I was greeted by Ariana and Emma, who handled all of my affairs up to my saying "I do". My husband and I had a wonderful server, Ed, who took care of all of our needs during the cocktail hour and reception. Our bridal party had other servers assigned to them, which was an extra special touch. Our guests had a great time, loved the food as well as the beauty of your facility. Our wedding was perfect and Water's Edge Resort & Spa exceeded our expectations! Thank you again.Sent on 10/25/2019
