Most professional and collaborative wedding venue

I had my wedding at Waterside in December 2023 (about ~120 guests) and cannot say enough good things about my experience. From working with Lesley who was super flexible in allowing me to visit multiple times to make my decision on the venue, to Shantal and Christian (the BEST day of partners you can ask for) who literally made sure everything I hoped for and asked for went as planned... the experience was incredible. I am one of those people who have lists and double check everything over and over again to ensure perfectness and Waterside made me feel so assured from beginning to end. The entire team was so responsive, answered any and all questions I had and most importantly, they made me feel welcome. The guests asked who I used as my day of coordinator because things ran so smoothly and the bride and groom weren't running around at all but enjoying each minute. And the FOOD! We chose Waterside because it is also a restaurant and the cocktail and main dishes were all amazing... guests said it was superior to any other wedding food they had. All in all, I want to thank Waterside for a great experience. There is literally nothing I would change if I had to go back, thanks to its amazing staff and hospitality!

The best decision we ever made

I don't really have enough words to describe my experience at Waterside. We found Waterside in early 2019 and immediately signed our contract to get married there in April 2020. When the pandemic was quickly ramping up, Waterside was able to help me find a new date (in November 2020). When it was clear that that date would still not be safe, they immediately opened their calendars to find a new date, this time November 2021. Waterside was by far my easiest vendor during the evolving COVID-situation and they made me, a very stressed-out bride, feel much more at ease. Shantal was my go-to person the entire time and was an extremely helpful, communicative, professional, and all-around amazing person to work with. Whenever I had a question, big or small, she always answered and provided all of the details needed.

We finally had our wedding on November 5th and wow, it was worth the wait. Christian was extremely helpful and communicative leading up to the wedding. I cannot rave enough about the entire Waterside team on the day of the wedding. Everyone was incredibly kind, accomodating, and always one step ahead. If I wanted one thing done a certain way, it was done, no hesitation. We had our ceremony outside right as the sun was beginning to set and it was a perfect backdrop – I highly recommend doing the ceremony outside if you can! We have had MULTIPLE people tell us this was the best wedding meal they've ever had, between the meal at the reception and the food during cocktail hour. Overall, this was the perfect venue for us and I would vouch for Waterside, Shantal, Leslie, and Christian to anyone looking for a gorgeous venue where you know you'll be taken care of! They are all professionals and will make this day so easy for you!
