  • We held our ceremony (SeaLoft), cocktail hour (Vineyard Room), and reception (SeaLoft) at the Waypoint Event Center. We chose this venue because of the affordable pricing, the ability to have everything in one location that was attached to a hotel and wasn't your traditional ballroom (the SeaLoft Room has a brick wall, rafters, and an overall unique feel to it), and offered a real weekend-getaway feel for our out of town guests since there were tons of restaurants, bars, and shops within a 15 minute walk from the hotel. Overall our experience with the Waypoint Event Center was very good. We had a wonderful day, and our guests loved the space and raved about the food. Very good for the price! There were only a few minor hiccups throughout the process: 1) the staff who were helping clean up at the end of the night were throwing things into boxes with no regard of the fragile items (glass cupcake stands, decorative wine glasses, glass bride and groom toasting glasses, etc.) - I know ...

  • My husband and I had our wedding at Waypoint Event Center. I stumbled across the Venue on my google search for wedding Venues. The moment we met with Diane, and saw the venue for the first time, we knew this is where we wanted to be married. Diane was absolutely incredible throughout her time at Waypoint, about 6 months before the wedding she was offered a promotion, and unfortunately we lost her. :( From then on we dealt with the new Event Coordinator, Kayla. She was sweet, and tried very hard to fill Diane's very large shoes! The day of the wedding we worked with Steph, one of the event managers. I was slightly disappointed by her, considering the room wasn't set up the way it was supposed to be, we only needed 11 Tables, and there were 12 set up, so one of them was completely empty, with not guests and the one that had people at it was not decorated with the table runners or centerpieces that i had brought because we didn't have enough for 12 tables. Also, she didn't know my husban... Read more

  • We had our wedding reception at the Waypoint in April 2017. Everything was absolutely beautiful. Our guests raved about the food and the event space. We have no connection to New Bedford, and randomly found the Waypoint during an internet search for wedding venues. After meeting Diane in January 2016, viewing the space and the local area, we knew it was where we wanted to hold our wedding reception. The Waypoint is connected to a Fairfield Inn by Marriott, which allowed our guests to stay the entire weekend and enjoy the local area. We had several guests coming from out of town and having the hotel attached to the event space made it easier to spend more time with our guests throughout the wedding weekend. The surrounding are (DNB) offers the perfect setting for amazing wedding photos, tons of restaurants for guests to have lunch, and many options to explore (museums, galleries, urban wineries, the harbor walk). Our guests raved about the local restaurants and how many places t... Read more

  • My fiancée and I had our reception at the Waypoint Event Center and Diane was amazing through it all! The tasting was so good, that we kept talking about it to all of our friends about how excited we were. Diane replied to ALL of my emails in a timely manner and was a sweetheart through everything. Not once did we feel stressed out. We met with her the week of the wedding to go over final details, and the place looked great! The food was delicious, the staff was so nice and helpful, and the room looked spectacular! All of our guests raved about the buffet (which I would highly recommend). I can not thank Diane and the staff at the hotel enough. It was also great having the hotel connected to the venue, since it made accommodations easy for all of the out of town guests.

  • Jen at the Waypoint Event Center is outstanding. She is amazing at what she does. She goes above and beyond to make things work for your event. My event is in the near future but since the beginning she has been and email away to help me plan and organize things! She replies to email and phone calls within a couple of hours with an answer. I can't wait to have my perfect day in just a few month and I know it will be perfect at the Waypoint Event center!

  • The Waypoint was the perfect venue for our January wedding. We had 95 guests, who fit nicely into the Sealoft room. It was warm and intimate, with plenty of room for dancing the night away. The food was really great! People raved about everything from the hors' d'oeuvres to the entrees. It was all delicious and well presented. We were very, very pleased with all of it. [We had stationary hors d'oeuvres of cheese and crackers and the vegetable crudite, as well as passed hors d'oeuvres of bacon wrapped scallops, pork tenderloin crustini, grilled cheese and tomato bisque sips, and clam cake demitasse shooters. For entrees we had Baked Scallops Nantucket, Roasted Prime Rib of Beef, and Vegetable Skewers over rice for the vegans. Nothing was left to be desired. Every single thing I ate was scrumptious!] Jen, the event coordinator, was amazing! We met with her many times and she answered all of our questions. She always responded very quickly to emails and made sure that every detai... Read more

  • My husband and I were married at the Waypoint Event Center, part of Lafrance Hospitality, and also had our catering through them.We were absolutely blown away by the services provided. I enjoyed my interactions with everyone at Lafrance, although we worked closely with Jennifer at the Waypoint. She was so professional and prompt with her responses, and made us feel so at ease through a (sometimes) stressful process. We also used catering via Lafrance and all of our guests raved about the food. Everything was delicious, and helped to make our wedding extra memorable. We really enjoyed our experience working with Lafrance Hospitality, and would recommend any of their venues to couples looking to get married in South Coast Massachusetts.

  • We could not be any more pleased with The Waypoint or the help we received from Jen Cotoia, the event planner. Jen was patient, kind and went above and beyond for us. She returned my emails immediately, stayed late to accommodate the fact that my husband was from out of town. The acoustics in the room were fabulous. The food was, by far, the greatest selling point. I had never eaten there, I went on an opinion from a friend and I must say that it far exceeded my expectations. The meat tender and the salmon cooked to perfection. My only problem with the food was that I didn't have enough time to try all the appetizers as I was attending to all my bride duties. My guest raved about the food. The only thing I would have done differently was request an additional bartender. I felt the drinks were a little slow to come up. But with that said, he was knowledgeable and efficient. My guests were just ready to party! Again, I will say, without a doubt, if I had to do it again, I would c... Read more

  • I am so happy we found Waypoint!!! It was the perfect location for our wedding! The SeaLoft room was the right amount of rustic and romantic atmosphere we were looking for! Jen was amazing to work with! We couldn't thank her enough for all her hard work and flexibility with being out of state. It was the perfect day and we loved everything about our day!!

  • My husband, Andy and I couldn't have asked for a better experience getting married at the Waypoint Event Center (01.04.2014). The months leading up to our wedding very easy and stress free thanks to Jennifer Cotoia the most amazing site coordinator. Jen was a vital part of making our wedding completely amazing. Not a detail was missed or an email unanswered. Our wedding would not have been remotely as beautiful as it was without Jen and the entire staff at the Waypoint and Fairfield Inn. The Waypoint has so much to offer. The Loft room has exposed brick walls and beams and its huge chandeliers create a light and airy open feeling making it a beautiful backdrop for a wedding and ceremony. We chose to hold both the ceremony and reception in the loft room, which was super convenient for our guest. The passed appetizers were hot, delicious and plentiful. We opted for buffet, which allowed our guests could choose from a variety of dishes. The food tables were set up beautifully and were... Read more

    Kelly, thanks for your kind words and we had a lot of fun hosting your wedding too! We know our team at the Waypoint Event Center and Fairfield Inn & Suites are amazing but it's nice to hear others say so too! Thank you

  • We had our beautiful wedding at Waypoint Event Center in New Bedford. We started out working with Jen who was extremely helpful, and once she left we began working with Diane. The actual day of coordinator was Nath because Diane was not on site. There were some communication issues between the previous and current coordinator and the day of coordinator, however we couldn't be happier with the way the day turned out. Diane was extremely sweet and responsive and was able to address all of our concerns and work with us on our unconventional plans. We were able to set up the day before the event and were given ample access for our do-it-ourselves decorating plans. At the event, the venue worked seamlessly with our vendors. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. I would definitely recommend Waypoint, and particularly Diane, to other couples!

  • I had my wedding here almost a year ago and I wish I could have it over & over again! Waypoint in New Bedford was the reception site and I dealt with Jenn C. (She was excellent)! I really wouldn't change anything about them (the prices are a little high but average with everywhere else I would say). As far as flexibility I had to change my wedding date because they only had the 21st of September open (which it didn't matter to me as long as it was in September). Jenn was so easy to talk to and always there for my many questions... She was a huge help!
