November 2022

We recently had our wedding at Waters Edge Portside and our day could not have been any more perfect. Delicious food, great wine, attentive service, and a beautiful venue. Our guests commented on the amazing food, wine and venue saying it was the best wedding they have ever been to! For that we would love to thank Katrina and Kayla and all the staff at Waters Edge and The Fresh Collective. They were amazing and so helpful in planning everything we needed for our day. Our ceremony was held on the huge balcony and was set up beautifully. Kayla helped our dream wedding come to life. She is helpful, professional and an amazing wedding planner and Kayla had so many great ideas to share. On the day Kayla was there to help, and all the staff were amazing. Thank you for the perfect wedding we dreamed of.
