The Most Beautiful Place for a Wedding
In the quest for our venue, we came across WaterStone Estate. We fell in love with the large wooden hall and the beautiful surroundings. The staff was very helpful throughout the whole process and always answered all our questions.
The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous, it's like a fairy tale, and made our wedding feel perfect! Cynthia was our coordinator and we couldn't have pulled it off without her. She was amazing to work with and kept everything running smoothly on the day of and we are so grateful for all the help she gave us! Our wedding was everything we wanted and more. We are so happy and can't thank WaterStone Estate and Cynthia enough for our beautiful day!Sent on 14/08/2019
Waterstone Estate and Farms's reply:Thank you so much for the kind words Hana! It was an absolute pleasure to work with you and Andrew. Your wedding was beautiful and we can't wait to see your photographs!

I don’t know where to start with Waterstone. The beauty of the venue sells itself, they could easily slack off elsewhere because of it, but they don’t. Between the bridal suite being a space that our even hair and makeup vendors complimented, the food being mouth wateringly delicious, and all of the inclusions making it so we hardly needed to bring in anything of our own, I don’t think we could have asked for more. But there was more! The STAFF take this place to another level! The bartenders, Brian and Adam, made a point of noting who was in the bridal party and who the parents were to make sure they were always taken care of. The foodservice staff was attentive, quick, and considerate during the toasts. As for the coordinators, specifically Cynthia, I can not stress how integral she was to making the day perfect; from setting everything up in the morning and making sure it was exactly what I wanted, to taking candid photos of my guests in the sunset, to making sure the bride and groom were fed during the cocktail hour, she thought of everything. I would recommend Waterstone to anyone!Sent on 15/08/2019
Waterstone Estate and Farms's reply:It was so great to work with you on your wedding! We couldn't have been more honoured to help make your day so beautiful and special and we absolutely loved all your decor and how beautiful everyone looked!! Thanks so much for your kinds words - working with people like you is what makes our job so fun!

Waterstone helped make the day PERFECT
We could not be happier with our Waterstone as our venue. From the beginning Devin was so great to work with and very helpful. Closer to the day and day of, our coordinator Cynthia was amazing. She was SO helpful, thoughtful, accommodating and on top of everything to make sure we were both happy. Everything went so smoothly. The staff and bartenders were all great. The food was delicious. All of our guests loved the beautiful setting, the hall and the food. The bridal suite is nice and big, it easily accomodated our wedding party of 10, including a couple extra husbands and babies. It really was a perfect day and I am so glad we chose Waterstone.Sent on 03/06/2019
Waterstone Estate and Farms's reply:Allison thank you so much for your kind words! It was wonderful to work with you and Kevin towards creating your special day and we loved all of your decor choices and how beautiful everything was!

Lovely, cozy venue
We were married in November 2018, and couldn't have chosen a better venue. Our ceremony was outside, and despite the cool weather, our guests were comfortable in the gazebo. The staff were great, the food was delicious, and the venue looked incredible. We supplied our own alcohol (which is a great cost saver), and the reception building is so naturally beautiful that our added decor was minimal and super manageable without a planner.Sent on 06/02/2019
Waterstone Estate and Farms's reply:Hi Megan and Jeremy, It was wonderful to work with you both towards creating your beautiful day! Your wedding was gorgeous and we thank you so much for this lovely review! Best wishes from everyone at WaterStone!

A perfect day at a perfect venue
Waterstone was everything we dreamed of for our wedding day! Devin was our wedding coordinator and she went above and beyond for our special day! They were very flexible and accommodating in every way! Even let us have our dog in the ceremony which was very important to us! We highly recommend them to everyone!Sent on 26/02/2019
Waterstone Estate and Farms's reply:Hi Hailey, It was great working with you and your dog is absolutely adorable. We loved your wedding - everything was so beautiful!

My husband and I got married at WaterStone Estate & Farms last year and it was absolutely the best decision we could've made! The staff was so friendly and helpful we loved working with Devin!

It was a dream come true!Sent on 23/08/2019

Your harpist was absolutely beautiful and we loved how you set up the room with the harvest tables. We hope we can see your photos and share them on instagram waterstoneweddings - especially the ones with Scout!!

We got married at Waterstone on October 5. We were so happy with the venue, the food, the staff, everything! I knew I wanted to book Waterstone when I saw it. Is a beautiful place with a gorgeous property. Devin was such a tremendous help through the whole process. She was always so friendly and professional, and always answered my many many emails and questions. I can’t say enough nice things about her. Our guests are still talking about how beautiful the place was and how good the food was. Thank you to Waterstone and to Devin for making our day so great!Sent on 24/10/2018
Waterstone Estate and Farms's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words. Your wedding was truly beautiful in every way! It was an absolute pleasure to work with you and Mark and we wish you every happiness in the future.

It has taken us some time to come up with the words that appropriately fit how much we loved working with the WaterStone Estate and Farms team as we fear anything we say will fall short, so we will briefly describe our experience and hope that our gratitude reaches their whole team.
From the moment we made our first visit to the beautiful grounds we fell in love with the rolling hills, gazebo, barn and the hall itself which we would call more of a cottage than a hall. We were looking for a barn-like setting as we went for a rustic theme. Although not a typical farm, WaterStone was perfect for us as it was very ellegant yet rustic and simply beautiful.
We received all of the information that we needed to make our decision on our first meeting and Devin was so kind and patient in answering all of our questions, no matter how silly they seemed.
Unless you have a specific must have colour scheme that they may not have as a choice, the venue has the linnens, cutlery and other basics that one looks for from a hall. They also have a variety of decor items and lawn games that you can rent. Some places that we looked at had a bridal room/suite, WaterStone had a full basement dedicated to the bride and her ladies. It is complete with a washroom a powder room and a large sitting room whith a huge mirror so you can take a long look at yourself before you go upstairs to make your debut.
We would recommend that you skip some meals when you go for your food tasting as they really pull out all of the stops so that you can make the best decision for your day. We must have changed our minds about our dinner choices at leat 6 times and not only was Devin super understanding she also replied to our emails within a very quick time frame making the whole process a breeze (at least for us).
We were also provided with a list of recommended vendors which made our lives so much easier as those vendors were already familiar with the venue and most were reasonably priced.
We were running behind schedule the day of the wedding and by the time we got there we were relieved to see that the staff had received our flowers for us.
The space is already so beautiful and in line with what we wanted that we really did not have to do much in terms of decor so we had more than enough time to set up the day of (unfortunately we were unable to set up the night before due to an event they were hosting, which is completely understandable). The space has many windows and a beautiful glass double door that look out onto the property. There are twinkle lights hanging from the ceiling.
Outside the grounds are simply a gorgeous background for photos, and there is plenty of parking for guests.
It rained on our wedding day and once again Devin and the rest of the team shone through, they whipped down the seats for our guests in the gazebo before the ceremony took place. They provided us with elegant umbrellas for the wedding party (which are now part of our wedding photos). The staff was so wonderful and friendly, there was not a single complaint from any of our guests at all. The staff was really thoughtful, they brought food and water down to the bridal area as we were drying off after the pictures to make sure we ate something and stayed hydrated. They were so good that we never saw an empty glass/ bottle or dirty plate on a table for long during and after dinner.
At the end of the night, we were told to leave everything and come back for our things the next morning (as there wasn't an event the next day). To be honest we had left the place downstairs a complete mess and dreading the clean up, so we were pleasently surprised when we came in and everything had been cleaned and packed neatly for us to just load up and go. I really do wish we had been able to give the staff a bigger tip than we did because they all did a magnificent job and we really cannot say enough good things about them or the venue.
We know this is a long review, but if you're on the fence about renting out this space for your event we hope that it will help with your decision making.
Best of luck,
Jason & Karla
P.S. If any of the WaterStone staff are reading this, thank you so much for having made our wedding day such a wonderful experience that we'll never forget.Sent on 14/03/2019

A review for our wedding day
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!Sent on 07/08/2018
