    Amazing Venue, Excellent Service

    After meeting Shar & touring the Watershed, we knew that was exactly where we wanted to have our reception! Shar was amazing to work with, from the initial meeting, to the food tastings, she worked with the bartender to come up with signature drinks for us, and even created a beautiful bar menu for us! My husband initially had reservations about not renting out the entire space (wedding crashers!) but we had absolutely no issues, and Shar made sure the staff kept our party separate from the bar area (unless guests wanted to go over and get draft beer!). The communication was excellent the entire time. We never had any worries about our requests being taken care of. The staff was amazing at set up, and during the wedding. They brought out a fan for the kids table - and french fries weren't on the menu but the kids asked and they made it happen! Our guests absolutely loved all of the food, and the boat rides around the lake were a huge hit! We were so happy with every part of our wedding reception, and highly recommend Shar & The Watershed!

    Perfect for our wedding

    We got married at the Watershed last month, and it was perfect for our group. They have lots of areas you can rent out to fit your needs if you don’t need the entire venue. The coordinator there, Sharmayne Maytes, did a fantastic job with everything! She answered our many questions, helped plan our every detail, and decorated the place beautifully. The servers and bartenders were great, too. Delicious food! The lake provides a wonderful backdrop for photos. Our wedding was smaller and casual, but I’m sure Sharmayne could make any size or style work. Definitely worth checking out if you are planning a wedding or event.

    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.
