We loved the idea of an "all-inclusive" venue. We were able to book the ceremony, reception, DJ, floral design and bakery with a one-stop contract. Melanie secured all the above-mentioned vendors and my daughter and I get to do all the planning. What a GREAT way to check off so many of the important elements at once!Sent on 05/25/2016

Amazing view, amazing service, amazing food!
We had our wedding here on 12/29/18 and it was absolutely amazing. Anna was a pleasure to work with and was incredibly helpful as our wedding coordinator. She was always available and aways helped me with whatever I needed.Sent on 01/02/2019
The included vendors were also incredible, it was so nice not having to worry about any of the coordination on the day of our wedding.
On the day of our wedding, everything was absolutely breathtaking, it was so cool to see everything come to life after months of planning. Our guests were raving about the food and the view, both of which were top notch.
The service was also awesome. As someone who worked in the service industry for a number of years, there is good service and there is above and beyond service and that is what we received. Our VIP server, Jazlyn, made sure that we always had a drink in our hand and brought us cake and glow stick necklaces. She made it her mission to make sure we had a blast.
If I had to go back and re-plan my wedding, I would choose WVL again, hands down!
