    Our Dream Wedding

    Where do I even begin? Windows on the Water made my wedding dreams come to life. Tracy was so helpful through the entire process and Cheryl stepped in the day of to make everything perfect. The planning process was super simple and easy. Our day ended up raining but Cheryl made the indoor space so beautiful for our ceremony. The food was AMAZING! I was hesitant at first because there is not a tasting but I promise you the food is worth it! Our guests haven't stopped talking about how amazing the food and venue was. I wish I could relive that day. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
