    They didn't let Covid-19 ruin our day!

    I was extremely lucky to have such an understanding and co-operative venue. They always kept great communication and were willing to work with us when we needed to postpone our wedding. When the new date came, and we had a new set of restrictions. I was worried this wasn't going to feel as special, compared to the original reception that was planned, but Mike and Eduvina didn't let it diminish our special day. They gave us the best experience we could've had.

    Oh and the food was AMAZING!!

    Best wedding venue

    Mike and Eduvina were a complete joy to work with. They helped accommodate our wedding despite this pandemic and truly went above and beyond to make our vision come true. I would absolutely recommend their services to anyone looking for a stress-free wedding. Also, the food was amazing and Eduvina’s stylings were perfect.

    10/10!!

    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!

    Beautiful Venue

    The venue is so beautiful in the fall.
    It’s amazing that they only have one wedding going on, so you and your guests have the venue to yourselves. Food is absolutely delicious!
