Virtually a one stop shop - Stress reducer for sure!
Upon meeting with Joanne for our tour, we fell in love with the facility. They do a great job of helping you set expectations, and they handle basically everything except for a photographer and your favors. They are incredibly kind. Being a same sex couple we did not know what to expect. The Conservatory did an amazing job of treating us like everyone else, even going as far as editing their forms to groom/groom. We were treated like any other opposite sex couple and to us, that meant more than anything. They are clear and concise in what is included, what it will cost and there are NO surprises at the end. They made our day special. We were not rushed the day of, and the coordinators took special care of my husband and I as well as our family. If you're going in not sure what to expect, or if you know exactly what you want, the people here are amazing.
They also provide the catering, and the food was top notch. The service provided was excellent. They sent us with lovely to go boxes of food, and a bottle of the delicious champagne from our toast.Sent on 11/05/2020

An incredibly memorable experience! So happy!
My daughter's wedding was just this past Friday night and WOW! I know it may be unusual to receive a review from the mother-of-the-bride but I simply have to say how wonderful the every single member of the staff was! Start to finish, every detail was attended to and easy to understand. Believe me when I say they've thought of everything! However, if you do have some ideas for additional personal touches you'd like to add to your evening, they are very happy to accomodate! I could never say enough about Ms. Linda. She was our coordinator on the day of and she's an absolute angel. Patient and kind and thorough - she was a superstar! Thank you all so very much for an incredibly memorable evening!Sent on 11/10/2020

They really took care of us and had a great value!
This venue is all inclusive which made everything SUPER easy AND super affordable. Our day-of coordinator, Linda, was amazing and took care of everything! We were able to enjoy our day without a single worry! Our DJ, LeNard, was so energetic and really kept the party going. He was very personal and vibed so well with our guests. He was just the best! The space is so beautiful and the food was delicious. We'd recommend this place to everyone.Sent on 11/11/2020

Dream come true
Had our wedding here last night and it was an amazing experience. This venue is perfect for those that want to have a beautiful wedding without having to sort through vendors and plan each thing out individually. They made things so easy from the beginning. They reached out whenever it was time take another action ( dinner tasting, cake tasting, choosing decor, etc). I could not have asked for a more perfect experience. Suzan was our day of coordinator and she did a great job of keeping things on track and making sure we were happy. They thought of everything! They even packed us up individual to go plates of our wedding food to have the next day. The packed up our cake. Helped us with a DJ...i mean man. No complaints. I've received so many compliments about the food and decor. One friend even told us our wedding was her dream wedding! So thankful we found this place and since we did it on a Thursday the wedding was even more budget friendly.Sent on 10/11/2019
Conservatory at Waterstone's reply:Wow Orin, what an awesome review! Thank you so much for taking time out to let us know about your experience. I will let Susan know how much you appreciated her as a coordinator, these things mean a lot to our staff. This is the type of experience we strive to give all of our couples! We wish you all the best in your marriage.

Flexible and affordable
Everyone at the Conservatory was so helpful and did everything they could to make our wedding day perfect. They give you a day of coordinator who does it all- she tells you where to be/when, and takes all the stress out of a wedding. I am the most Type-A person and the Conservatory managed to be so professional and put together I felt no need to worry about a single thing on my wedding day. They know what they are doing! And, of course, the food was just amazing (we are still hearing about it from our guests!) and the venue is just so beautiful. A perfect blend of modern and classic.Sent on 10/10/2019

Our Experience was Wonderful
Working with the staff at the Conservatory was wonderful. They were reasonably priced, very flexible and organized. My only area of discomfort was their reluctance to work with my wedding planner. They even made the comment that they haven't worked with planners before. Everything worked out in the end and my guests and husband had a wonderful time at the wedding.Sent on 08/17/2019

More than we could have wished for
Thank you SO MUCH for providing a wonderful venue! The Conservatory was perfect! The DJ, Food, Bartender, Planner and everything was stress free thanks to your employee’s and beautiful venue. The planner who kept everything right on time was wonderful. As the parent of the bride I was able to enjoy the entire day stress free day and everything went off perfectly. Everyone who attended has also said how much they loved the venue and the great time we had.Sent on 11/05/2018
Thank you again for the perfect wedding for our Daughter Brooke and Husband Dylan.

Wow! I have been blown away by everything The Conservatory provided for our wedding! We opted for their best package for easy planning. The Conservatory was timely to schedule all the meetings on their end. Communication was 8/10, the only improvement I suggest is a faster email response rate, but nothing went wrong! Every meeting and every step of the way, they really made is super easy. If you are an organized, detail-oriented person, this venue will make your wedding planning a walk in the park! If you are not good at planning, the Conservatory tells you what to do, just take notes and do what they say! They're not a full-planning service, but they are very good at their jobs. Also, my sincerest thank you to Lindsey, my day of coordinator. She is wonderful! She blended into the background when needed and stepped up like a boss woman when needed. She really helped my day to go smoothly and the Conservatory is lucky to have her as one of the coordinators. Maria and her flower team did a great job on all the flowers - the archway, all the decor flowers and greenery, bouquets, boutonnières, corsages, you name it, they do it! I showed one inspiration photo of what I wanted and it was really close to it! It was beautiful. I have friends getting married and I feel sorry for them because their venue is no where near as accommodating or easy to work with.Sent on 10/03/2018

I just had my wedding here over the weekend and I absolutely LOVED everything about the team and the venue. Not only were they responsive to all my ridiculous requests but they understood the stresses of planning from across the country (I live in CA) and always made us feel comfortable. Our day of coordinator, Michelle was a godsend! I don't know what we would've done without her. She was literally everywhere on our wedding day! She was able to think ahead and address our needs before we even realized we had needs. Our DJ, LeNard was also incredible. He kept the party moving and the music was great. The food was wonderful as well and the flowers were more gorgeous than I ever anticipated! Overall, 10/10. I loved this venue and would recommend it to anyone. Thank you Waterstone!!!Sent on 04/24/2018

Words can't express my sincere gratitude to all the staff at The Conservatory at Waterstone!! From the time we reserved our wedding date to the end of our ceremony and reception, we were pleased every step of the way. Everything was explained thoroughly regarding what was included in our package and even when I still had a million questions I was never made to feel like a bothersome bride. I honestly can't pick one thing because the day from start to finish was just perfect... pre-wedding (rehearsal and getting ready day of in the beautiful and spacious bridal suite), ceremony set-up, reception details, dinner, and everything in between. I had been warned to expect at least one thing to go wrong, but I can honestly say besides the weather (an chilling 48 degrees), everything went smoothly. Michelle, our day-of coordinator with the venue, was absolutely amazing. I can not recommend this venue enough for one-stop wedding planning. Thank you all for making our day perfect!!!Sent on 11/06/2017

Where do I start?!? All of the staff are awesome! I don't have a single complaint and would not have chosen anywhere else to get married. The communication throughout the planning process was phenomenal. There was always someone available to answer my hundreds of questions and always with a great attitude. They are very accommodating and will work with you to make sure your wedding is unique. Sherry, Maria, Michelle, and Jessica are all outstanding. The planning with Sherry was excellent, the flowers by Maria were absolutely beautiful, the coordination by Michelle was flawless, and the communication with Jessica was great. I never wanted for anything the day of the wedding and all of the guests were taken care of. The value of this venue can't be beat. One of the best things they offer is a to-go plate for the bride and groom. Although, it's a small piece of the wedding, you don't appreciate it until two hours after the wedding is over and you're hungry. It's nice to be able to actually enjoy eating the food you picked. I can't say enough great things about this place and I would 100% recommend them to anyone in the area. Five-star service and even better people.Sent on 12/29/2017

First off we cannot express how much we enjoyed having our wedding at this lovely venue!!! They really went above and beyond to ensure we had the wedding of our dreams! I say dreams because we 100% customized everything to our specific taste and they were very accommodating and professional about it! They really listened to what I wanted and made sure they brought my vision to life! My guests have not stopped raving about the wedding! I would definitely recommend this venue to any couple!Sent on 07/27/2017

I cannot recommend the Conservatory enough! They are amazing!! They were responsive and kind every step of the way. They are an all-inclusive venue so that took so much stress off of me. It is beautiful there. Our flowers were absolutely gorgeous. Everyone raved about the food and cake. The best thing I can say is that the day of my wedding I was completely stress free. Michelle, the day of coordinator, took care of everything to the point where I really didn't even talk to her until the ceremony started. Our DJ came as part of our package and LeNard was awesome!! He took in some of our geeky touches and decided to play songs that matched it. That is one of the things that guests talk to us about! Our photo booth was through the venue and it turned out great also! I just can't recommend this venue enough! They are affordable, nice people and we had the best wedding!!Sent on 04/16/2017

Can I give this venue 50 stars?!?!?! Hands down best venue! The whole experience was stress free, organized and very professional. EVERY one of our guests loved the wedding. From the beginning, you feel like family. They do EVERYTHING for you. There will be many things your’d never think of, but they do and everything is written down. The food was top notch and not your typical wedding food. The Flowers and Décor were more than I expected. You really get more for your money with their package. We used the phot booth and all of our guests loved it. Our DJ Lenard was awesome. He really got the guests excited and up dancing. I’ve planned many wedding myself and it was nice to find a venue that I didn’t have to micromanage. I really enjoyed that the seating was away from the dance floor so our guests had to get up and mingle and dance. I could go on for days about how awesome everything was. Thank you Sherry, Susan, Michelle, Maria and the WHOLE team!Sent on 03/07/2017

My wedding is still on going but I have booked this venue for my Jan 2017 ceremony. I toured the faculty and just loved it. The staff their have been great to work with so far. They are very detailed and lay everything out for you. I have been impressed so far with the reservation process. They even recommend outside vendors (photo, DJ's, hotels, ect.) that they have worked with many times in the past with great quality work. A co-worker used this venue last year and only had good things to say which help seal my decision to pick this location.Sent on 02/06/2016
I have gotten married and everything went smoothly! The decor was beautiful, coordination by the staff was excellent And the food was good. I highly recommend this venue. It was the best day ever and smoothness of the staff at the Conservatory aided in that.

Our wedding was more amazing that we could have imagined. We truly believe the success of our wedding is mostly due to the Conservatory and their great staff.Sent on 05/28/2016
We became good friends of the venue as we would go by a couple times a month to check out other weddings. We were always welcome and eventually stopped calling to let them know we were stopping by.
Weddings of course can be stressful; the Conservatory helps to alleviate the stress. Nearly everything is included: venue, food, flowers, drinks, DJ, cake and day of planner. The only vendors we had to hire were a photographer and officiant. The Conservatory had great recommendations for both. One of the great things about the venue is they allow you to put your own touch on the place. We've seen more than 30 weddings and all were different.
My fiancé and I visited roughly 25 venues before deciding on the Conservatory. The Conservatory was the only one that gave us "The Feeling".
Michelle gave us the tour and was also our day of planner. She made everything easy and we are forever indebted to her.
Our friends and family raved over the beauty of the venue and are still talking about it 2 months later.
We want to give a shout out to Maria for the beautiful flowers. She took our extravagant ideas and made it a reality.
To JoAnn, Sharron, Michelle, Maria, and everyone else involved we are forever grateful.
Marie and Ryan

When I was choosing venues, I looked at venues all over the state (we are from Athens). Originally I wanted to get married in Savannah, but I just couldn't find the perfect venue for us. We drove to venues in Auburn, Greensboro, Dahlonega, Atlanta and the Conservatory and finally we narrowed it down to 2 choices which would have been completely different themes. I showed pictures to my mom, my MIL, my MOH and the best man and took votes and it came up a tie. Finally I woke up one morning and went through both options in my head envisioning how the day would play out at both venues from the time the guests arrived to our final exit and I decided the Conservatory was what ultimately fit my vision.Sent on 08/28/2016
When we started the planning, I was a little irritated at first because they kept talking about out of state brides and giving them priority even though we lived 2 hours away. In the end, this never interfered with any of our planning meetings because they were always able to get us an appointment that worked with my husband's work schedule and allowed us to meet with our other vendors in the area on the same day to minimize our driving. They take care of almost everything venue, food and decoration related which makes it so easy on brides but they do still allow you to have some creative control and bring in anything you want if you're a DIY or Pinterest bride. Maria (the florist) isn't the most friendly person to work with, but her work is amazing!
The venue itself is gorgeous and I got so many compliments from guests on how pretty it was. The food was really good and the cake company they contract with is awesome! The day of coordinator Michelle is so sweet and she keeps everything on track so all you have to do is have fun and enjoy your day! Our wedding went perfectly as scheduled and everyone had a fantastic time. I am so glad I chose the Conservatory and would choose them all over again if I had to!

We held our wedding at the Conservatory on March 11th, 2016. The day went off without a hitch thanks to the amazing staff! The venue was beautifully decorated (their flower specialist, Maria, is AWESOME!) and they were extremely accommodating to us-- even allowing us to book the entire day (they even had an employee present bright and early at 8AM when we arrived!). The food was super delicious. Everything was on a timely schedule which, being me, absolutely loved. I could not have asked for a better wedding day! Thank you to everyone at the Conservatory :)Sent on 03/29/2016

Looking for a wedding venue? Do not look any further... THIS IS IT! The Conservatory at Waterstone is THE BEST wedding venue I could have ever imagined. My husband and I married there recently and we could not be more pleased with the work of their staff. Joann, who is the owner, is such a sweetheart and ensured that all of our needs were met in preparation for the big day. Susan did an excellent job coordinating the event for us. Michelle was our guide on the day of and she made sure that everything on the big day when smoothly. I could not have asked for a better experience for our wedding. The DJ, floral, food, drinks, cake, and decor were exceptional. With this all-inclusive venue, I can honestly say that it was a STRESS-FREE experience... these ladies literally took care of everything and handled our event with care. Not to mention, the pricing is extremely reasonable for all that is included. Thanks to The Conservatory for making our day so memorable and special!Sent on 03/03/2016

The Conservatory was great! Sherry, Susan, Joanne, Maria, Sara and last, but not least, Michelle made our day great!!Sent on 01/19/2016
By the time of our wedding, I couldn't have asked for a better day - everything was perfect and all of the details were exactly what I wanted! Maria made our flowers beautiful, Sara made a GORGEOUS cake and Michelle helped really direct the day so I didn't have to worry about a thing. Not to mention ALL of the pre-work/help from Sherry, Susan and Joanne! I pretty much planned my wedding by myself and was so grateful I picked The Conservatory to be our venue because they helped me along the process and allowed me to stay "sane" in those last few days leading up to the big day!
Did I mention that pretty much everything is included when you book this venue and they have vendors if you don't have your own photographer, videographer, DJ, etc. I did have a lot of my own, but it was nice to have other options just in case. You get to have tasting for the food, cake, drinks in addition to your meetings about items (cake, flowers, etc.). They do not overwhelm you with meetings - it was the perfect amount. Depending on your cake size/design, a portion of the cost is already included in the package, as well as your flowers/bouquets. Overall, just a great deal!
I love the feel of this location! It was everything we wanted and we immediately were sold when we visited! We got our outdoor wedding and the indoor reception with the industrial/rustic/"New Orleans" feel. It was perfect! Thank you all again for a great place to have wonderful memories of!

The Conservatory did an absolutely wonderful job for my daughter's wedding in October 2015. All of the ladies we worked with were extremely helpful in assisting us with decisions that needed to be made. Leading up to the wedding I had no stress or worries and the day of the wedding could not have gone any smoother. I was able to enjoy every moment! All of our guests loved the food, the delicious cakes and the beautiful flowers. I highly recommend the Conservatory.Sent on 01/31/2016
