Perfect Wedding!

We absolutely love WaterStone! First of all, it’s a stunning property. With the sun setting, it was magical.

Meaghan, our coordinator, was wonderful to work with! You can tell she loves what she does, as she was genuinely excited for us as a couple & for our big day! She’s very friendly, helpful & organized; planning our wedding with her was fun! She even gave us great recommendations for other vendors.

The food was also great! Our guests all raved about their meals.

Overall, it was the best day! Everything came together perfectly. We can’t recommend WaterStone enough.

Dream Wedding!

Not sure where to begin. Our wedding at Waterstone was everything we pictured and more. The barn was absolutely stunning, the scenery gorgeous, the food to die for, the staff absolutely incredible, and the party - one for the books. Our coordinator Cynthia was absolutely amazing ensuring everything ran smoothly, keeping us updated leading up to the wedding, and even joined us for a dance before the nights end. There is a not a thing we would change about our day. Our guests said it was one of the best weddings they ever attended and a huge part of that was all thanks to the vendors and staff. Highly highly highly recommend having your wedding or event here.

Our August 2023 wedding at Waterstone was perfect. Meaghan and the rest of the team at Waterstone were very professional and helpful throughout the planning process. The property is absolutely beautiful with so many great places for pictures. We also had a lot of compliments about how great the food was. Overall I would highly recommend Waterstone for your big day!

Amazing experience!

The venue itself is so beautiful, and then the team is such an added bonus. I was definitely lost in planning and the help from our coordinator at Waterstone helped us so much (included in cost of venue).

The food was spectacular and our family and friends are still talking about it. The grounds are breathtaking for photos and the inside is so warm and inviting.

If I had to do everything all over again, I would still choose Waterstone.

Thank you for everything!!!

Ceremony/Reception/Private Dinner

We had our ceremony in the barn, a small reception afterwards and a private dinner that followed later. The service we received from both Devin and Cynthia was excellent and far surpassed what we could have imagined. They took care of every last detail and went the extra mile giving us complete VIP treatment! The property is beautiful and we could not have asked for a better location to celebrate our special day. Many unending thanks to you both and to Waterstone Estates for absolutely everything! Thank you!!!

Overall a great experience!

Wedding planning can have its stressors and we had a few hiccups a long the way. Though - that did not stop us from having a great day at Waterstone. The guests loved the venue, our photos are incredible, and the food is exceptional.

My best advice for any bride looking to get married here would be to ask as many questions as you can. Waterstone staff were always responsive to email and the meetings along the way helped make sure everything fell into place.

If you’re lucky to have Meaghan as a coordinator, she’ll stand up for you if things aren’t right and she’s extremely flexible. Thank you for a beautiful day.

Absolute Dream Venue

I had my wedding on June 24, 2022 at Waterstone Estate and Farms. I worked with Brittany for months leading up to the event. Brittany was outrageously helpful making sure we stayed on our timelines and answering all my emails right away. On the day she kept in contact with me letting me know everything was going great and keeping me in the know if where I needed to be throughout the day. I couldn’t have asked for a better coordinator.

The food!! The food was so so good, all of our guests said how great the food was.

The venue; this venue has everything you could want! It has a gorgeous barn that has church like vibes which is perfect for a ceremony. In between the ceremony and reception the venue had outdoor games for my guests to partake in during cocktails. Everybody said how much they loved the venue and the grounds. I was lucky and had a perfect sunset. The reception area was perfect for us. It fit everybody so well and the fireplace really ad to the charm. We also liked this venue because we were able to purchase our own booze with the liquor license.

I could not have asked for a better day. The entire day was a dream!

Rustic Meets Elegance

We lost track of the amount of compliments we received for this venue! Everything turned out so whimsical, it was like a dream.

Brittany was a huge lifesaver!! I cannot give her more praise: she truly went above and beyond to accommodate us and our needs. She was professional, extremely quick to respond, and a true joy to communicate with! Everything went so incredibly well, and a huge part of that was due to her help and attention to detail.

The venue itself is stunning: from the barn, chapel / gazebo and main building to the grounds, everything was pure magic! Waterstone is close to guest accommodations, the in-house caterer prepared the most delicious food(!!), and the opportunity to stock your own bar was incredibly appreciated and helped make the day more cost-effective!
The one hassle was having to have all our décor and items out of the venue by 1am, but the staff were very willing to help our bridesmaids and groomsmen gather all our belongings at the end of the night. So overall, totally worth it!!

Love that there are multiple options to have your ceremony on site, but we couldn't resist the heritage barn! Our photos don't do it justice!!
