The Terrace at the Waters Edge Lighthouse

My husband and I had our September wedding at the Terrace. It was perfect! Our guests raved about the delicious food and the beautiful location right on the river. You really can't beat the price for the value and service you will receive. While planning I worked with Rit and Sue who both made the planning process so easy for me. They were quick to respond, eager to please and so accommodating. The day of the wedding Rit and his team transformed the venue space into exactly what I envisioned. They even matched their ties with our wedding colors (small details never go unnoticed at a wedding). For the night before the wedding my bridesmaids and myself stayed at the Inn which was also perfect. It was wonderfully getting ready all together in the quaint, charming space. The convenience was key! We woke up, had breakfast (the rooms have kitchens!), got ready with hair and make up and hung out in the lovely space before the wedding. Once we were ready we just walked over to the terrace for the ceremony. It doesn't get any easier than that, especially for a stressed-out bride!I would ABSOLUTELY recommend the Terrace for any event. They will take such good care of you! :)

We are currently in the airport waiting to board a flight to our honeymoon. Everything else can wait until we get back, but we HAD to review The Terrace before we left. We just want to say if you choose this venue for your wedding or event you will be so happy you did. Our wedding was amazing! Rit was fantastic. He answered all my calls and returned the voicemails day of. He made setting up the extra decorations I wanted to include stress free. Our guests food arrived hot and the next day everyone kept telling us how much they enjoyed their food. Also, the hotel which is right next to The Terrace had great accomadations. The rooms were comfy and it was great to have a hotel right there for our out of town guests, and they could just walk from the hall to the hotel. And the views of the river from our balcony were beautiful! All the staff during the reception were attentive, we really enjoyed our personal server Pat who made sure we wanted for nothing during our reception, and it was great to have her otherwise we probably never would have eaten since we were so busy with first dance, greeting guests, and other just married duties. Also, the space on the dance floor was more than enough, the acoustics were great for our live band TSEnsemble (another amazing vendor), and the bar was gorgeous and well staffed. Again, can't say enough, we loved everything so much a review couldn't wait until we got back from our honeymoon, we had to do it now! <3

We had our rehearsal dinner here. We were supposed to be on the Freedom Patio, but due to weather we moved downstairs. The room was beautiful and the staff was great in making this accommodation. There are stairs to get down there and no elevator is available (and the restrooms are on a different floor) which was a little difficult for some of our grandparents, but we knew this going in! We had a slideshow for our family and friends that they let us play, we just had to bring all of our own supplies. We had a BBQ menu and it was delicious and they were great with my sister's food allergy. I forgot to ask for dessert, but the manager was able to help us whip something together quickly so our guests were not disappointed! I recommend having events here as communication with them was very easy!

I cannot recommend the Terrace enough! I had my wedding there last weekend and my family and friends are still calling me to rave about the food! Ritt and his team were amazing to work with. They went above and beyond to make sure that everything was exactly how I wanted it; and that I didn't have to worry about a thing when my husband and I arrived to our reception. Ritt and his staff were responsible for setting up the reception- and everything was perfect, just as I imagined it!! You can tell that he is very experienced and has so much knowledge in the wedding industry.

Guests loved the option to relax outside on the terrace where we had set up cordials and cigars. Very classy venue, easy to work with, and at a great price. The banquet room itself is gorgeous (high quality construction and decor), and with a setting by the river- you really can't beat it! Also loved the new fire pit out on the patio.

I cannot say enough good about Rit and the team at the Terrace! I am very particular and they were nothing but fantastic, matching their ties to my colors and all! Hit worked with us and had everything we wanted for our day! The beautiful setting on the water is just what I wanted. We looked one other place and had to stop because we knew that the Lighthouse was the place we wanted. The night of the wedding they were able to keep things flowing, no one waited long for food and everyone was served by the time we got up to talk to everyone! The food was delicious and exceeded all expectations! Susan our server was great for us and kept making sure that everything was PERFECT! Everything went so well we even extended the party for longer because everyone had such a great time!
