  • We had a beautiful wedding reception in the Edgewater's Grand Ball Room. Top notch service and attention to detail. We had a wonderful experience working with the wedding & catering manager Meghan, she was great at answering all our questions and helping us make our dream wedding a reality. We did have some complications with the guest room booking for the weekend, it was a lot more complicated and time consuming on our end then it needed to be. I would defiantly recommend having your wedding at the Edgewater, so worth it!
