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!Sent on 04/11/2021

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
