    Great ambience and service!

    They are professionals!
    Shantal was great from beginning to end. Our wedding ceremony was suppose to be in the venue, outside. But it rained that day! So they moved it to the third floor, which was great ( I don’t know what I would of done if we didn’t get that option).
    The venue is beautiful and the location is unbeatable.
    Food was amazing, we heard from
    Our guest that there was a vast amount of it during the cocktail hour. Dinner was delicious and fulfilling as well. No one left hungry I assure you of that!
    Big thank you to Chris as well, he provide us and our guest with amazing service!
    Thank you waterside!
