    I do recommend the site, I just did not like how I was treated.... We picked this place for the barn and then they decided to restore it and not have it ready on time. She said we could pay an extra $1,500 if we wanted to get married in the barn. So maybe my money would have paid ... View more paid for it to get finished but I highly doubt that. Also we paid for a fire pit and that was lit late, and by my father in law. She was very scatter brained. The place was absoulutly beautiful! So yes I recommend it but the owner was hard to connect with.

    Where do I start? I can't thank Waterstone enough for all they did to make our day PERFECT! Deborah and her team are literally AMAZING! Our package was exactly what we were looking for, and modifiable which was amazing! They went over and above to make sure we had everything we ... View more needed. The connected us with fantastic vendors who work at the venue regularly and were just awesome to work with. They put up with me emailing them constantly about literally everything! I have nothing negative to say! Waterstone was the first venue I looked at...and the last. I literally returned the next day to book, I knew I had found the perfect venue. The place is STUNNING! Our guests could not get over how beautiful it is there and how well maintained the grounds are. I wish we could get married again just so we could spend another perfect day at Waterstone! If you are looking for the best venue in York Region, this is it. Thank you again, Deb you are the best and your venue is beyond perfect!

    We booked Waterstone for our October 2016 wedding about a year in advance. We wanted something "rustic" but still classy. The property is so beautiful! I knew the second we visited the venue for the first time that this was where we would get married. Everything was running ... View more smoothly with Waterstone's wedding coordinator, Tracey. We had all of our meetings, and planned everything through her. 1 week before our wedding my fiancé received an email from Tracey explaining that she no longer worked for Waterstone as their wedding coordinator. First fail - the bride should have been in this email. If you work in the wedding industry, or you've been a bride you know how stressful the last week before the wedding is. I had to re confirm EVERYTHING with Deborah. She didn't have our table settings, she hadn't marked down the second bar tender we ordered, and it took us about 5 times to get the final invoice worked out. She would forget to click on "reply all" most of the time meaning only 1 of us received her reply. She seemed annoyed that I was annoyed that we lost the coordinator that we had been working with for a year. I was so extremely stressed out - and this made everything that much worse. The day before the wedding we had access to the venue to drop off items, and set some things up. My husband (then to be) had arrived with one of his friends to cart in the alcohol. They had not set up the tables as they should have been according to my seating plan. Deborah was there, but only to give us a hard time. The basement where we got ready was a dump,there was garbage from the last wedding, and no toilet seat. Wedding day: to me,perfect. It was beautiful and thats all I could have asked for. The only major issue was the catering company was under staffed. Head table was eating desert,and some tables hadn't even had their main course. The food was delicious though! All in all, this place is BEAUTIFUL.
