    Shining Waters Marine

    Shining Waters is such a beautiful venue! We had our ceremony on the grass by the water and our reception inside the even space. Carolyn was a dream to work with!! She was so quick to respond to our emails and questions. We could not have planned our wedding all the way from Ontario without her help. She was so organized and the way she set up the event space with our decor was even better than we could have imagined. Our guests had an amazing time and raved about how beautiful the venue was, how delicious the food was, and how smoothly everything ran.

    The wedding co-coordinator is very helpful and goes above and beyond to make sure your wedding goes off with out a hitch. No matter how ridiculous the request she happily makes it happen.

    I must say it was absolutely wonderful to have our wedding at Shining Waters.

    Carolyn was an absolute dream during both the planning stages for our big day and, of course, the day of. We planned our wedding from Alberta, so it was very important to have someone on the grounds who is organized, outgoing, and professional. Carolyn has all those qualities.

    Her passion for her job shows in every detail. It is obvious, she would do anything and more to insure your day is perfect.

    Thank you to Carolyn and the rest of the team at Shining Waters. We wouldn't have changed a thing.
