    Our Perfect Wedding

    From the moment we walked in to the venue to tour with Karen, we were in love! The venue is absolutely stunning - you couldn't ask for more beautiful space. We also had Karen as our officiant- she's amazing to work with, and we loved our time with her. While we couldn't dance as per the covid rules at the time- we truly couldn't have asked for a better day. I wouldn't change a thing about our day and I'm thankful to Water's Edge for playing their part in that.

    Mrs. Cabrera,
    Thank you for taking the time to give your thoughts. We are saddened you did not enjoy your daughters wedding. At The Water's Edge we strive to listen to our clients and take direction from them. Our intentions were not meant to be unfriendly and rude and we apologize if you felt they were.
