    They made our dream wedding a reality

    My husband and I got married at WVR on 10.16.21. I don't think there are enough words to express how magical the day was. The very affordable venue is everything we could have ever imagined and more. We did our first look pictures on the top of Mt. Snow, our ceremony at the osceola arbor, and our reception at the tent. The back drop for all of our sites were breathe taking and people (a month later) continue to comment and reach out on how perfect our special day was. If you are considering this venue look no further. Erica and her team will ensure your day goes off without a hitch. She was responsive and on top of every little detail, including a potential rain day plan (thank god it wasn't needed!) Her team were the nicest and most accommodating people I have ever met. They walked me through each step of my day, the tasting was perfect and answered all of my thousands of questions. I can not say enough good things about Waterville. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our dream wedding come true.

    Bride/Groom

    We cannot say enough good things about our wedding! We had the most magical day at Waterville. From the chairlift ride for the first look to dancing under the tent we had an amazing day! Erica and Taylor were great and made sure that our day went smoothly- we didn’t worry about a thing! Our guests enjoyed the fact that they could stay in the valley and walk to the wedding! We highly recommend getting married at this amazing spot!!
