  • It was our pleasure to get married at this wonderful venue. This place has one main goal, and that is to host an amazing wedding. To be honest, even with their most basic package, you are guaranteed to have guests commenting weeks after your wedding about the beautiful courtyard, the delicious food, and the great service. Our contact person and day of coordinator, Jessica, was a joy to work with the days leading up to and the day of our wedding. She helped to make sure that the day of went as smoothly as possible. Brandon, our matre D, and Amanda, our bridal attendant, were amazing, especially Amanda. We had trouble gathering all the family members after the ceremony for pictures, and Amanda stepped up without hesitation and without necessarily knowing all of our family members, and tracked them all down. She was truly amazing, she did everything we asked of her, and never left our side the entire night. We would give The Waterfall a 5/5 but there were a couple things that we wish coul... Read more

  • DO NOT BOOK THIS VENUE - My fiance and I are from Washington, DC and despite our love for our home city, we decided to venture into Delaware and stumbled upon The Waterfall. From first glance, this place has amazing features including the picturesque outdoor ceremony space and the luxurious ballrooms. Additionally, The waterfall includes catering and bar options, which were a plus for us. DAY OF THE WEDDING - everything that could've went wrong, DID! The picturesque outdoor ceremony space, was infested with bugs severely! I literally walked down the aisle and had to fight to hold my composure while being attacked by gnats, flies and mosquitoes. My husband, bridesmaids, groomsmen and the reverend who were already placed before I walked down the aisle were MORTIFIED. Does The Waterfall deliberately not pre-treat the outdoor areas for insects? Next, The Waterfall gets it's name from it's many waterfalls, correct? None were turned on during any portion of my wedding day and they refused ... Read more

  • I hadn’t been to many weddings. The waterfall helped me every step of the way. Everyone who worked there in the black in white outfits were so nice and understanding. My veil kept falling lol they had my back! Food was delicious. The outside wedding is a dream of mines that came true. And they helped me pack up and load my car. They were like family that day. Thank you Waterfall.

  • My daughter's wedding was on 6/7/19. Everything about this venue is top of the line. Jessica worked with us through the planning process and was always available for questions and answered emails the same day they were sent. The taste testing was as if we had our own little celebration and the staff were all so professional and helpful. There aren't enough words to express how amazing the wedding day was. Our wedding coordinator, Amanda, was so much fun to be with. She made sure the bridal suite was equipped with whatever we needed and she had as much fun as we did. The cocktail hour is an event all its own, and the staff had a surprise for the wedding couple I will not divulge. Our guests are still talking about this venue and that it was the best wedding they've ever been to. You can't get a better compliment than that. All a parent wants is to have their child's wedding day be all they dreamed it could be and the Waterfall made her dreams come true.

  • The staff at the Waterfall went above, and beyond to make my wedding day special. We had an amazing coordinator and bridal attendant that made sure every detail was taken care of, and we didn't have to worry about anything. The food was beyond anything we could imagine, and our guests were blown away with the appetizer, and dessert stations. This is the best place for the wedding of your dreams!

  • Medori/richter wedding 5/10/19 The Waterfall is a beautiful venue with beautifully landscaped grounds and gorgeous marble interior with glass fixtures and beautiful chandeliers. The venue is absolutely beautiful but the staff and food are amazing. The abundance of food is nothing like I ever seen before and taste delicious. All of the staff are there to help you from the minute you walk in till the time you leave.We never wanted for anything! The staff works like clockwork with smiles on their faces! There attention to details is impeccable. My guests left saying “this was the best wedding they ever attended!”

    Clare & Mike, It was a pleasure working with both of you! You two have such a contagious energy, which made the planning process that much more exciting. From the moment Mike walked in on your wedding day and told me about the dance party in your hotel room the night before, I knew your wedding was going to be one to remember! Here's to love & laughter, -Nicoleta Sinagridis & The Waterfall Staff

  • What an amazing venue! Everything was perfect from the food to the service, the ambience! The bride and groom were catered throughout the event! The same attention was given to all our guests! The gorgeous decor inside and out set the tone for the experience we received. The Waterfall created an experience that will be remembered by all our guests and us! Everyone commented about the amazing food, LOTS of food, every dish was perfectly made, the drinks were all premium liquor and so nicely done, the garden with the waterfall and fire pits perfect for pictures and some relaxation!! The staff are professional and they get 5 star excellence! Worth mentioning the honesty of a staff member who found a gold bracelet in the garden and gave to the groom. The bracelet was gifted to the groom by his mother the day of the wedding and belonged to his deceased father! He had not realized he lost it. Tiffany, the server, saved the day! Thank you for the most beautiful experience you provide... Read more

  • I cannot say enough good things about the staff at The Waterfall. From the very moment I walked in for a visit, I knew this was the place I would have my wedding. They always made me feel like a priority and were willing to work with all of my ideas to make my wedding perfect. Nicoleta, my event specialist, was amazing and truly felt like a friend by the time my wedding came around. Everything was set up just as I imagined and I brought in a lot of stuff! Everyone is still raving about all the food at my wedding and how amazing it was! Would highly recommend having your wedding here as it is so worth the price!

  • The Waterfall is a beautiful venue. The food is plentiful and delicious (cocktail hour display and variety are out of this world). The staff are incredibly helpful both to me (a Day-of Coordinator) and to the couple and their guests. They made my job easy, were super attentive, went above and beyond and together we created an amazing event for the bride and groom. They even added something extra special that brought a tear to everyone's eye. I would definitely recommend The Waterfall to other clients looking for a wedding venue.

  • Our daughter's wedding at the Waterfall on 10/27/18 was absolutely beautiful! The staff was excellent and we felt like we were treated like royalty! From the day we booked the Waterfall to the day of the wedding, we never had one concern or problem. So many of our guests told us that it was the best wedding they had ever attended! With 2 other daughters, we will definitely be back!

  • My husband and I have not stopped receiving compliments about our wedding at The Waterfall! The Waterfall's staff are friendly, warm, and incredibly accommodating. Our dog was an important part of our wedding ceremony, and we were worried about how we were going to get her back home without missing too much of the party. They allowed for her to remain in the bridal suite on site, as long as we continued to check on her throughout the evening. The food, the atmosphere, and everything about our event has continually been described to us as "unreal". Brides - if you are looking to throw an amazing wedding, look no further than The Waterfall. They are committed to making your every last wish and dream come true. K&A Mason- Newark DE

  • We got married at the waterfall 10/6/18 and I'm so glad I listened to advice of others and took the time to actually look around to take it all in because his venue is gorgeous and truly were there for you every step of the way. Really breathtaking. I'm very type A and the coordinator (Jessica) was so chill along the way of the process and promised all the decor would look perfect --I honestly don't know how but that staff literally took the pictures out of my head and made it happen. THE FOOD. I can't even. It was BANGING top to bottom. I need someone to get married here just so i can eat there again...i swear...Their sushi was even amazing-- we had the sushi station and i was kind of thinking it would be supermarket sushi but IT WAS SO GOOD!!! LEGIT SUSHI. The staff were SO nice i can't even explain. They were there for you to ask if you were hungry, needed a drink, etc. At one point one of the guys, (now i forget his name) ,in the middle of an almost melt-down during... Read more
