    The caterer's food was unbelievably good, and our guests continue to comment about how great it was. We received overwhelming compliments on the choice of venue as it is absolutely stunning inside and out. Our dance floor was vacant all night because everyone wanted to be out on the back porch overlooking the beautiful landscape. We were able to bring our own wine, beer and liquor, which added a nice touch of personalization and of course, saved a huge amount of money for us! We had an amazing wedding day and would absolutely recommend it to other couples looking at getting married!

    AMAZING!! WaterStone was all we dreamed of for our wedding and more. The venue is beautiful and the food and service were excellent from beginning to end. We booked the venue 4 months before the wedding (eek) and the WaterStone staff helped us completely de-stress. We were able to go on repeated occasions to take measurements, get advice from the owner who is very helpful, and she helped us make some important decisions in terms of time line and room set up. We were always greeted with a smile. ALSO the WaterStone maitre’ d we had was excellent. We felt that she was our own personal wedding coordinator and helped us set up on the day prior to our wedding and was there from start to finish on the day of the wedding to make sure that all the timings were perfect and everything was taken care of. Because we were planning everything on our own, we hugely appreciated all the inclusions in the WaterStone venue package and the help - above and beyond what we expected - from the WaterStone staff. We highly recommend this venue on all counts!

    My wedding at WaterStone was spectacular. Everyone at WaterStone was extremely helpful with our arrangements. The room was beautiful and the inclusions and suggestions that WaterStone provided made the room even more beuatiful. Great food and service and fantastic bartender! Thanks!

    The setting is beautiful, and with good weather and sunny skies, the lighting is perfect. There are numerous opportunities for great pictures. The food was also fantastic! Our guests all gave rave reviews of the food.
    On the flip side, you will have to deal with the owner Deborah... alot. And it will probably be the most stressful part of your wedding planning, period. I've never dealt with someone so disorganized and flighty. Planning to meet is its own ordeal... I've made the 40 minute drive from my house three times in one day to accommodate her forgetfulness or lateness. I've emailed her and had to wait almost a week for a response. I had to sign liability releases and get insurance and jump through difficult hoops to protect her and Waterstone. In exchange, my wedding guests had to risk injury by collapsing all the tables from the wedding before ours and carrying them to storage. Good thing they didn't get hurt, cause there was no liability form for that! It is sheer frustration by the time the wedding day arrives.
    As for the venue, as I mentioned the previous wedding was not cleaned up. Somehow that became our job. The staff that was supposed to arrive at 830am to set up tables did not show until 1030am, and still they watched my guests and myself carry in the tables and set them up. They laid out the linens though... they did that like pros. The kitchen was full of old food, including day old rotting shrimp which smelled bad. But bad smells aside, we had two guests deathly allergic to shellfish, so thanks Waterstone for the near-miss.
    To top it all off, my credit card was charged (without notice) for $300, while we were on our honeymoon 5 days later, for damages unseen and absolutely not caused during our time there. This is still an ongoing fight, unfortunately because we'd like nothing more than to put the whole experience behind us!
    Overall opinion: The good did not outweigh the bad.

    Though I have not gotten married here, I have been a big part of planning two weddings that took place at WaterStone (the weddings of my parents and my best friend) and both experiences were phenomenal! One was a fall wedding and the other was a summer wedding and both of them were graced with beautiful weather which showed off how gorgeous the WaterStone property really is. I've heard nothing but praise and fond remarks from guests from both weddings, and the pictures really show off how well both weddings went. I would absolutely recommend WaterStone to anyone I know looking to plan their wedding -- who knows, maybe even mine will be there someday!
