    Exceeded my expectations

    Our wedding was Feb 16,2019 and words cannot express how amazing it was! The staff and venue completely exceeded my expectations!

    Leading up the wedding Krystal was a complete delight to work with. She was organized, on top of everything and always willing to answer any question you had no matter how big or small it may be! Krystal was able to bring my vision to life and I cannot thank her enough!

    Mike was also great to deal with! At any point in the night if you had a question he was right there to answer it for you or help with anything!

    I can’t forget Ashley, right before I was about to walk down the isle I got a little light headed she ran and grabbed me some apple cider to help calm my adrenaline. She was also an absolute delight to have all night. She always had a smile on her face and was willing to help with anything you need.

    The entire waterfront staff were friendly, fun and made the experience perfect!

    Now I cannot forget to mention the food!! Everything was cooked to perfection! Even the soup came out hot to every table! The staff was great with spacing out the time in between each meal as well and the late night bar!! My guest were blow away by the dinner and then it came to the late night bar and jaws were dropping! All of our guest were saying wow this is the best wedding food I’ve ever had!

    The DJ was also great! He read the crowed well and played a great mix to get everyone on the dance floor !

    This venue is a one of experience. You will not be disappointed when booking, instead you will be blown away! I cannot thank them enough for making our wedding day one will never forget!

    10/10 - Amazing Experience

    We had an amazing experience with the Waterfront Centre. I can't say enough great things about Mike and Krystal. They were quick to respond to every question, very accommodating, and so organized. On the night, Mike was there to ensure that dinner ran smoothly and Ashley also did a wonderful job keeping things on track.

    The venue itself is beautiful and there is tons of space for photos on the water. Our guests all raved about the food and service. The DJ was provided by the venue and he was great!

    I would definitely recommend this venue, they go above and beyond. You won't regret it!

    all our guests are still talking about the food

    We had 130 of our closest friends and family for our March 31st wedding. We chose the steakhouse package. They are still talking about the food, and the bartender remember everyone’s drinks!!!! The late night buffet was spectacular.

    Krystal was easy to work with, explained everything you need to know, about the decor, menus etc!

    The timing! Mike worked with our MC and we had everything worked down to the minute. Planned to start dancing at 9pm and we did!!!!!!!

    Excellent Experience!

    We had our wedding at The Waterfront Centre earlier this year and couldn't be more pleased with how everything turned out. Mike and Krystal made the whole process very enjoyable, not to mention stress free. They had every detail covered and were very accommodating when it came to last minute changes and/or the setup. The food was excellent!! We received nothing but great feedback from everyone who attended. There is plenty of great spots to take photos right on location. We would highly recommend having your wedding or event at the Waterfront Centre.
