Dream Venue !!!

Words can't express how grateful we are that we chose Windows on the Water for our wedding venue. We went into wedding planning knowing that we wanted a beach wedding and for our venue to feel like a destination without having to travel: windows on the water surpassed our every expectation of our dream wedding vision.

The staff was beyond incredible. During our first meeting with Tracy, her organization and calm demeanor made our decision so easy. She was not only friendly and informative but also she guided us to make the best decisions in regards to our food packages, and other add ons that we needed/didn't. She was honest with things that were a waste to add on and what was necessary. She was so responsive to our emails and was there for our every need along the planning process. We can honestly say we had no issues and we have the entire staff to thank for this. Our attendants, captains, and maitre d were outstanding. The maitre d not only was with us every second of the day, but she completely ran the show by organizing the ceremony lineup and waited for us with our signature drinks immediately following the ceremony. She even went above and beyond and bustled my dress for me! We can't thank the venue enough for making our own table of food for just the bride and groom's private time before cocktail hour and for running on a direct and organized schedule. We never needed to wait in line for a drink, some food, etc. They gave us one plate of each dinner item so that we could try all meal choices ! They also gathered up all of our belongings for us at the end of the night into one room for a smooth transition among the chaos of 160+ people leaving all at once.

This was our first venue in our search and no other venue held up to our feeling we had here. The ceremony spot feels like its out of a movie and the reception hall is so classy and elegant still keeping a beachy feel, as you have full view of the water and sunset and indoor outdoor space for guests to enjoy the night. Aside from the atmosphere, the food was impeccable. I want to go to another wedding here just to go back and enjoy all of the food. The amount of food was above and beyond and there was so much that we didn't even try it all. The quality was well above most wedding venues in my opinion. All of our guests said that it was the best wedding food they'd ever had.

You will not be mistaken by getting married here and we will never forget our special day at Windows on the Water!
