    You can't go wrong getting married here

    We had our wedding here and it was perfect. Sharmayne, the event coordinator, outperformed my wildest dreams. She adapted to any and all changes we made, was easy to work with, and the quality of her work is beyond question. Planning a wedding is stressful and she took so much of that stress away. Also, The Watershed has a fantastic pricing model for event hosting and we feel like we got an incredible value.

    We had ~170 people there and rented the whole place out. It wasn't crowded nor did we feel like the venue was empty. Sharmayne will work with you on how to break up the budget. She helped us come up with a plan that had an open bar for 8 hours and provided food the entire night. 10/10 would recommend.

    The Watershed is perfect for an intimate, elopement wedding! We couldn't be happier we had our Civil Wedding there. The view was beyond perfect, the food is great, and the people are friendly and kind! Props to Ms. Sharmayne Maytes, the event coordinator, for working with us on our wedding day. She answered our queries, made suggestions that were very helpful for us and always there when we had questions or favors.

    During the wedding, everything turned out the way I hoped for, Sharmayne helped me put up the designs and took care of the plating exactly how I wanted, the food was great, although it took a while for them to serve all of it, it was delicious nonetheless and most of all, it was affordable. The best part of this though, is the scenic view The Watershed offers. My husband and I had the chance to go to the island to have photographers and it couldn't be more perfect. The Lake as a backdrop was just breath taking.

    We first went to The Watershed on Valentine's Day, and when our initial plan for the wedding didn't work out, we immediately thought this is the perfect place to have the Civil Wedding, and we did not regret having our memorable day spent there.

    Thank you to Ms. Sharmayne and The Watershed, we will definitely be back! :)

    FABULOUS! Having graduated from Coronado High School (Scottsdale), our reunion committee really wanted to have our reunion in Scottsdale. However, we wanted a nice place that would allow us to mingle. We were just about to sign with a well known Scottsdale Hotel when a committee member stopped in and talked to the owner, Dan. We ended up sharing half of the restaurant inside & outside with another reunion. So, the whole place was closed due to two private parties. We had about 150 people. We had a dance floor, DJ, the bar, two buffet lines, an area for registration. The food was phenomenal, the bar kept up with us (we spent about $3,000 in liquor), the restaurant made sure water, ice tea and lemonade was available, we decorated to add to the festive atmosphere. When I tell you that this was our 4th reunion (3 held in Scottsdale) and everyone told us it was the absolute best reunion ever . . . I am happy to take the accolades. However, Sharmayne was available for whatever whim we had. We were not the easiest people to please and she never said "no" to us. We had a pre-meeting and a tasting with Sharmayne. Sharmayne had a surprise event visitor and her co-event coordinator stepped right in to help us complete the planning. It was gorgeous with the lake as a backdrop, parking was no problem with the second lot, and I would be a happy reference for Dan and Sharmayne. Thank you for making my event the best! I am proud to give you my best of recommendations!
