Alex and Eric’s Wedding – Excellent!

Dear Marlene, thank you very much for everything you did to help us plan Alex and Eric’s Wedding.  From the beginning stages to the end, your expert guidance and attentiveness to every detail was excellent and made the whole experience pain and stress-free! The staff in the dining room and hotel also were excellent. The service and food was perfect in every way! We are sorry it is all over now!!!!! I would not hesitate to recommend The Waterside Inn to anyone planning an occasion whether it is large or small.  The ambiance and setting made everyone feel welcome and well-looked after.  Thank you again to all who helped make our special day very memorable.  🙂

Exceeded Expectations!

We were married in October at the Waterside Inn and every detail of our wedding matched our expectations…and exceeded them! The venue is intimate and elegant, the service outstanding. Marlene Barcelos helped us to plan the event for 80 guests in less than 3 months, always available and most professional. Together we arranged: a wedding ceremony on site, cocktail reception, delicious 3 course dinner, an open bar and live band.  It was a perfect day. Our guests were impressed! They were also very pleased with their accommodations at the Inn. The rooms are lovely. I would highly recommend the Waterside Inn as a wedding venue.

So Glad!

Had my fall wedding reception and ceremony at this venue and so glad I did! The staff are extremely pleasant and reliable. Drinks were flowing, my guests couldn’t stop raving about the food! The flow of the day was perfect! The venue itself is stunning and doesn’t need a whole lot of decor and this place really has its own charm. Marlene was fantastic and brought my vision to life while answering hundreds of emails. The staff working that night truly cared about making sure we all had a great time. The suites were gorgeous and accommodated my guests in the best way possible. Thank you so much for taking care of my special day I absolutely recommend this venue for these events!

Excellent!

My husband and I had our wedding reception at Waterside Inn in July of 2015 and we were extremely happy with our experience. From the very first visit, Marlene Barcelos was extremely helpful and beyond professional in every element of the planning. We had about 250 guests that were able to sit comfortably and enjoy the stunning banquet hall with ease. The staff was very accommodating to all of our needs and requests, including customizing certain meals to meet the various dietary restrictions of our guests. All of the food was fantastic! The guest rooms were bright and luxurious, and everyone who stayed said they would be returning. This includes us, who very happily spent our first anniversary there, reliving the happy day. Waterside went above and beyond our expectations to make our wedding feel unique and special. Can’t wait for our next visit!

Thanks for an Amazing Wedding!

We had our ceremony and reception at the Waterside Inn and we could not have found a better venue. We worked with Marlene at the Waterside and she is simply amazing! She answered all our questions and emails so fast and ensured that our day was perfect. Anytime I felt any stress, Marlene put my mind at ease.  I provided the Waterside with all the table setting pieces and all the décor we wanted and the Waterside ensured that everything was placed perfectly. The reception room looked amazing, beyond everything I had envisioned.  The entire staff at the Waterside ensured our night was perfect. Tony is amazing as well. He ensured our reception flowed smoothly and accommodated everything we asked during the night.  Pretty much all of our guests requested early check in as well. Marlene and her staff accommodated our guests as well. The Waterside was very flexible in everything we asked. We are so glad we saw Marlene at the Bridal Show.  Thank you Waterside Inn for an amazing wedding! We couldn’t have asked for a better venue.

Took Away All Our Worries…

The Waterside Inn was a great venue for our wedding. We wanted a place where the food and accommodations were all on-site and the Waterside was perfect for this. The planning was so easy, and made me feel like it was all under control. I had so many questions, and all were answered in a timely manner and without making me feel like they were silly questions. The space itself worked out so well, and everything was set up as we wanted, and looked fantastic. The food was amazing, and to this day people still like to tell us how good the soup was – and really, who remembers what you ate at a wedding that happened a few years ago? The staff and manager were amazing on the day of the wedding. We had some things come up, totally nothing at all to do with the Waterside at all, but they handled everything behind the scenes for us, and took away all of our worries so we and the guests could all enjoy the day. We would totally recommend the Waterside. We have actually, recommended it already and friends took us up on the recommendation 🙂

The Waterside is THE Place

My husband and I got married at the Waterside Inn and it was the best day of our lives. The wedding co-ordinator Marlene was exceptional at her job. She helped us from day one create an amazing experience for both of us that will last a lifetime in our memories. We had our ceremony and reception all in their hall. The staff was beyond accommodating, friendly and went above and beyond their duties. We did not have a worry the entire day and night. Our guests are still talking about the hospitality they received. One of the best features of having your wedding at the Waterside is your guests don’t have to leave. Til this day our guests still rave about the food. From the first minute we stepped into the Waterside we were extremely happy. We would definitely recommend anyone looking for a venue for their wedding look no further. The Waterside is the place. You won’t be disappointed. Thanks to the Waterside for making the beginning of our lives together a memorable one. To Marlene for being there every step of the way.

 

3 Daughters – 3 Receptions at The Waterside!

I have three daughters. All three had their receptions at the Waterside Inn. Our greatest challenge was to make each one a unique and unforgettable experience. Working closely with the Chef, the Food and Beverage Manager and the Catering Manager, I am delighted to say that each event was an incredible and memorable success. Thank you team.  Over the years, my experiences with the Waterside have always been very positive, in fact my wife and I still stay at The Waterside Inn for a get-away weekend or for a great meal.

Beautiful

Our daughter and son in law’s wedding was held at this beautiful venue this past summer and my husband and I are so relieved that it was held at the Waterside Inn. We had looked at many different options and areas but the situation at the Inn being so close to the water gave it such an elegant feel which surpassed many other very nice venues. The Inn itself is gorgeous, kept up to the highest standards in every way and were proud in front of friends and family to have this very special occasion held here. The quality of service, food, surroundings are truly exceptional. Our event planner, Marlene took care of everything that I asked her to and then some, and basically took all the pressure off my shoulders with her professionalism and knowledge. To the smallest detail, anything I was concerned about was taken care of and therefore never became an issue. I could not have been happier about the entire event. Surprisingly, everyone I encountered here was amazing… I can’t say enough about this elegant place. The rooms were stunning and everyone who stayed over here was extremely impressed with the gorgeous accommodations.

An Absolute Pleasure

Marlene and the whole Waterside team were an absolute pleasure to work with! For the entire year of planning leading up to our special day, Marlene was the epitome of flexibility, hospitality and, professionalism. When our day finally came, it was picture perfect from the accommodations to the menus and food. The Waterside Inn made our wedding day absolutely spectacular!

A Day to Remember

Everything was fantastic ! The room looked beautiful, the food was terrific & the service could not have been better. My parents were just thrilled with everything. We had many compliments from people. It was a big success. Thank you so much for all your help & suggestions. It was a day to remember.

A Baby Shower to Remember

I wanted to send you an email to say how happy I was with the service I had for my baby shower yesterday. Thanks to you and all the staff and the Waterside Inn, it was a great success.  My guests were all very impressed with the venue, food and service. It was a fantastic afternoon.  Your help throughout this process was stress free and you always accommodated my every need.  I can’t express how impressed I was with everything (especially the way the personalized menu cards turned out).  I was able to come Saturday night to set up and everyone that I dealt with was so helpful and accommodating.  Thanks again for a great experience. I will definitely keep the Waterside Inn in mind when planning other special events.

The event was a great success and all our guests enjoyed themselves. The food and service was top notch as always. Thanks again for setting up the hall just right and making it a memorable day for us all.  Please again give our thanks to the support staff who were awesome and took care of us all impeccably yesterday. Our friends and family were quite impressed with the venue, food and service and have asked for your contact info to discuss possibly having their events there as well. So FYI, I will be sharing your information with them. 

Perfect Venue

Everything was absolutely lovely – the room set up was great; the food superb and we had great service. The guests were very impressed and the Bride-to-be was so pleased.  It was the perfect venue.  Thanks so much for everything.

From the Bottom of our Hearts…

The shower was definitely a success………..everyone could not get over how much selection of food and how delicious everything was.  I did compliment the chef as there was lots of compliments over the salmon.  The staff were truly amazing even when they had a few people asking them for things.  I would like to once again thank you for assisting us on all that was needed to make Nicole’s bridal shower a success and she herself was truly appreciative.  It was truly an amazing venue.  We thank-you Marlene from the bottom of our hearts and would recommend The Waterside Inn and I’m definitely sure our guests would do the same.

VERY Impressed!

Everything was absolutely amazing!!!  Every single person at the Waterside Inn that we interacted with went above and beyond for us. We were both VERY impressed with the whole process from beginning to end.  All of our guests had nothing but great things to say about your staff and venue.  We can be a crazy bunch but you handled us very well lol.  A big thank you for everything and I really look forward to working with you again.
