A review for our wedding day
Sent on 07/08/2018
We absolutely loved our venue for our wedding! We got married at Waterstone estate & farms located in king, just outside of Newmarket,ON. Not only are the grounds absolutely beautiful but the staff is beyond amazing and very accommodating. They also provided us with a wedding coordinator included in the costs and she was phenomenal! Very welcoming from the beginning and helped us along our year long journey of planning our special day. Waterstone is perfect for that rustic country feel and is great for pictures with their beautiful land and their Barn! We got amazing pictures from both!! I highly recommend Waterstone to anyone!

I got married on April 28, 2018 and could not have been happier with the staff, venue, and food. I could not imagine a more beautiful venue to celebrate my new marriage. I highly recommend waterstone 10/10 if I did it over I would not change a thing!

Waterstone has got to be one of the most beautiful wedding venues in the GTA. Driving up to the venue is just incredible.
I wanted to have my horse on site for the wedding so a barn venue was super important to me. Deborah helped get all the arrangements in place to have him there on the day.
One thing I would say is that I'm more of a traditional person and I really like to have face to face meetings to go over details so I struggled with the email correspondence that the coordinators at Waterstone preferred. I think it could have been much more efficient if we had meetings face-to-face to go over details.
We hired another company for our day-of-wedding planning and that really helped alleviate any stresses I was having about getting everything in order for the big day. The combination of our planner and the Waterstone staff made the day flow so perfectly (Devin and Deborah were fabulous helping us get everything organized the day before an the day of).
The pricing is really fair for all of the value that you get at this venue. Our food was incredible! We had so many compliments on the food from our guests. The bartender was really nice and did a great job for the evening.
All in all the staff at Waterstone made our day perfect. There's nothing that I can think of that went wrong or caused me stress on the day of the wedding. It was a beautiful day and we're so happy to have been able to host our day at Waterstone.

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 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.
Waterstone Estate and Farms's reply:
Hi Amanda and Brad, Thanks for your feedback. As you know, our heritage barn has always been used for photographs but not ceremonies. In early 2017 we shared with everyone that we were beginning a restoration on this historical barn in order to create a ceremony site which we know will be an exciting and beautiful addition to our other 3 beautiful ceremony site options. Restorations on historical buildings are hard to timeline, as there are structural as well as aesthetic renovations to be made, so unfortunately it was not ready for your wedding weekend in August. As we would not have accepted $1,500.00 for use of the heritage barn as a ceremony site, as it was not ready; and you chose our grass terrace which was beautiful for your ceremony, all I could do - and did do - was offer you free use of the barn for anniversary photos, or perhaps a baby naming ceremony that you might have in the future, or other event that you might be taking photos in the future. That offer still stands. I certainly do wish that your suggestion that a historical barn could be restored for $1,500.00 was accurate, but historical restorations are huge projects, and we will indeed be excited to have it ready for ceremonies in 2018. If I had a magic wand with which to have hurried the contractors, I would definitely have used it so that you could have had the barn available for your use. Please let me know if you want to take me up on my offer for a photography session in the barn next year.

I had my wedding at waterstone this summer. I wouldn't change a thing. Not only is it the most beautiful wedding venue I have ever seen, the staff are so helpful, friendly, and accommodating. All of my guests loved how laid back and elegant the venue was. It was truly a fairytale. Thank you to everyone at waterstone for making our day beyond perfect
