    My husband and I had our wedding at Waypoint Event Center. I stumbled across the Venue on my google search for wedding Venues. The moment we met with Diane, and saw the venue for the first time, we knew this is where we wanted to be married. Diane was absolutely incredible throughout her time at Waypoint, about 6 months before the wedding she was offered a promotion, and unfortunately we lost her. :( From then on we dealt with the new Event Coordinator, Kayla. She was sweet, and tried very hard to fill Diane's very large shoes! The day of the wedding we worked with Steph, one of the event managers. I was slightly disappointed by her, considering the room wasn't set up the way it was supposed to be, we only needed 11 Tables, and there were 12 set up, so one of them was completely empty, with not guests and the one that had people at it was not decorated with the table runners or centerpieces that i had brought because we didn't have enough for 12 tables. Also, she didn't know my husbands name the day of the wedding when she saw him before the ceremony, which frustrates me. And then, she didn't do the Ceremony processional correctly, she was rushing through sending everyone out, so when i walked in and walked down the aisle, no one was standing, and the song i was supposed to walk down the aisle to wasn't playing yet. Other than that, everything else was great! The food was delicious, and all of my guests loved the venue, and the patio area where cocktail hour was held! I would recommend to anyone that they use Waypoint as their venue!

    We had our wedding reception at the Waypoint in April 2017. Everything was absolutely beautiful. Our guests raved about the food and the event space. We have no connection to New Bedford, and randomly found the Waypoint during an internet search for wedding venues. After meeting Diane in January 2016, viewing the space and the local area, we knew it was where we wanted to hold our wedding reception. The Waypoint is connected to a Fairfield Inn by Marriott, which allowed our guests to stay the entire weekend and enjoy the local area. We had several guests coming from out of town and having the hotel attached to the event space made it easier to spend more time with our guests throughout the wedding weekend. The surrounding are (DNB) offers the perfect setting for amazing wedding photos, tons of restaurants for guests to have lunch, and many options to explore (museums, galleries, urban wineries, the harbor walk). Our guests raved about the local restaurants and how many places there where to explore directly across the street from the hotel. One of the main reasons we booked the Waypoint is because we were super impressed with the wedding coordinator, Diane. Diane is very personable and professional. She is very experienced and accommodating, and was able to refer us to a bunch of local vendors. She always answered my questions in a timely manner, and made me comfortable whenever I was stressing about anything. She did a wonderful job with our wedding set-up. Everything looked exactly the way we wanted it. The sea loft is go with its wood beams and stone wall. The loft area allowed our photographer to take a cool group shot from above. The food was amazing and there was soooo much of it. The cost was very reasonable compared to other venues we looked at and the Waypoint didn't have that wedding factory feel that so many other venues have. I would highly recommend having your event at the Waypoint. Many thanks to Diane and her staff!!!!!
