Frequently Asked Questions

How far in advance should I book my wedding venue?
Booking your wedding is one of the first things you should do when planning your wedding. This will allow you to speak with other vendors on their availability. Many couples choose to book their weddings so they have 1-2 years to plan the celebration however; we do see couples who book their wedding with less than 1 year to plan.

How many guests can your venue accommodate and is there a minimum requirement?
Generally the minimum guarantee is between 100 and 120 guests but we also offer reception rooms that can seat as little as 50 guests & up to 350 guests.

Are there different rates for peak and off-season dates?
Rates are not only affected by the season but also the time of day and the reception room you select. Off peak months like Jan. through March are more cost effective than months like April through December. As well, AM affairs are less expensive than PM and Twilight (Mid-Day) affairs.

Are plates, silverware, and glassware provided?

Are table linens & napkins included?
Yes. Included with your event is your choice of standard tablecloths & napkins. Upgrades are available for an additional fee through our recommended vendors or you may choose to bring your own.

BOLI Love!

As soon as we walked into the watermill we knew this was where we wanted to have our winter wonderland wedding. We had the pleasure of working with Tom L who treated us like family from start to finish. The staff, service, food, drinks, decor and total ambiance of the watermill was amazing. We had no issues our entire wedding planning and our wedding day on 12/1/18. Tom L went above and beyond for us and made our dreams come true for our wedding. Our family and friends still rave about our wedding a year later, especially how staff made sure during the reception they always had a full glass of whatever they were drinking at the table. I would defiantly recommend the watermill for a wedding or any event.
