Manager Katie Moore said they host 30 to 35 weddings a year, with the majority conducted on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Waters Edge offers plenty of options so each couple can have a unique experience. Couples can choose from the ballroom, the great hall, the rathskeller, the chapel in the pavilion or a mix of those. And there’s lots of beautiful spaces outdoors to take advantage of for photos.

The original clubhouse, which closed in 2005, has a guest capacity of about 120. To supplement the existing ballroom and rathskeller, owner Joe Caplea added a great hall, which overlooks the pond and stream, and planted a vineyard.

The great hall features 20-foot ceilings and offers a guest capacity of more than 350. For evening weddings, this room is ideal as it has a wall of windows, perfect for watching the sun set.

There’s also a pavilion that has been enclosed and converted into a chapel. It can hold up to 400 people and works as a great backup if it happens to rain on the big day and the ceremony was planned for outside.

With each wedding package, Waters Edge offers brides and grooms a catering list and alcohol service. These rates are based on guest count.

Because Waters Edge books weddings mostly Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, all rehearsals are performed Thursday evening in one-hour time slots from 5 to 8 p.m., and day-of setup starts at 9 a.m. Your rental time ends at 1 a.m. after your event.
