My daughter had her wedding here and every single person that helped in the planning and execution and every detail was amazing. I cannot say enough complementary things about her overall experience. Every Edgewater employee made sure she and all of the guests had everything they could possibly need during their entire stay.

Katelyn Paulos and Charlie Nolting were amazing. They made sure her wedding was perfect and any bumps in the road were taken care of immediately. I can’t thank everyone enough for making her day absolutely perfect and everything she ever dreamed it would be.

To say we were happy with everything doesn’t begin to describe the level of professional and polished service that we received and the beautiful rooms we used during the course of my daughter’s weekend. Shae nailed it all so very perfectly! Her attention to detail for the entire event was beyond compare. We started the wedding day with yoga overlooking the lake, used services in the spa, had cocktail hour in the Nolen Gallery and outside on the Terrace, held the reception in the Grand Ballroom and morning-after brunch in the Wine Room by the Statehouse Restaurant. Every room was beautiful – along with our guest room. I would unequivocally recommend The Edgewater as a perfect place to host a wedding. They provided us with fantastic recommendations for DJ and flowers as well which made our planning even easier. The memories we made are priceless.

Words cannot describe how wonderful you and your team have been to work with. Amy and Beau’s wedding was flawless. All of you made this weekend the most wonderful event. Amy and Beau were thrilled with everything and the guests are still raving about the food, staff, decor and all of the above.

By the way, I don’t know how you arranged to clouds to clear and the sun to shine which provided the best sunset ever. Kudos to all!!

What can we say as parents of Michael & Ryan. They decided on The Edgewater the minute they walked in the door. Your wedding team was absolutely top notch in helping to plan a perfect evening for Michael & Ryan. The food, venue, service, price and hotel accommodations were the best. When we run into people who attended the reception they can’t rave enough about the food and venue! If we had to do it all over again we would definitely choose The Edgewater.

Last weekend was amazing. The rehearsal dinner in the Red Crown Club was fantastic and your staff was extremely helpful and professional.

Thank you for all your help leading up to the event as well. The food, setup and overall experience was exactly what we had hoped for.

On top of that, the stay at the Edgewater in the Presidential suite, the Lakeview, Lakefront (and the others I needed to get for some friends last minute), as well as the massage were all perfect. I could go on about the staff at the front desk, housekeeping, the bartenders at Augies, etc.  Thank you all for everything.

Everything was perfect for my daughter’s wedding at the Edgewater. We used the outdoor plaza and tent. Perfect setting, well worth the cost. 235 in attendance. great AV system and support from all departments at the hotel (valets, front desk, reservations, wait staff). We used the Nolan Gallery and surrounding outdoor patio after the wedding while the wedding party took a trolley to the capitol. A signature cocktail was well done and there were plenty of bars to get a drink (always one of my frustrations). We did all-vegan food and the chef nailed it. Food stations were fun and the food quality and availability were just what we hoped for. The young people went to the Skybar after the reception. Much better than having them filter downtown. Breakfast the next morning in the Red Crown room. What a grand place. Thank you Edgewater!

Wedding date was May 9, 2015. A whole year ago and it we talk about the event almost every day. It was the best decision we made to have my daughter’s wedding reception at the Edgewater. It was first class the whole way from Check-in to Check-out we were treated like Royalty. Quality of Service was outstanding through the whole process. All questions and concerns were responded to in a timely manner and they became our best ally in making suggestions to make it the most incredible event. The food was fantastic and had several people say it was the best steak they EVER had. Even our kids and special vegan meals were delicious. This was a destination wedding for us so the majority of our guests stayed at the Edgewater. The Edgewater Staff worked with us in getting our block of rooms together and very accommodating in reserving special rooms for the Bridal party. Room service was fantastic. Bridal party ordered Breakfast food while they got ready and it was delivered hot and on time. Overall service was a class act and I highly recommend anyone to booking their wedding at the Edgewater. When giving your daughter the dream wedding of her life it melts my heart when she and her husband say that their wedding at the Edgewater was the most fantastic day of their life. I owe it to the professional staff at the Edgewater for making it all happen.
