  • The whole process was amazing! From the beginning meeting to the wedding day, I knew exactly what was going on the entire time. I knew when I needed to talk to what vendors and I didn't have to worry about coordinating with everyone as Waterview did that for me. It truly helped me to not feel stressed and feel excited about planning and leading up to our wedding day! The day of the wedding was nothing less than perfect. The staff was amazing. All of my guests were extremely impressed with how they were treated. Even when some of my guests got there extremely early, they were treated with kindness and attentiveness. The vendors were AMAZING as well! I would recommend Waterview to anyone. Beautiful venue. Beautiful staff. It made our day absolutely perfect!
