Jan Jan went above and beyond what we could have ever expected for our big day! Everything from the decor to the attention to detail to the overall setting and vibe of the place was magical. The whole process was so smooth and you would have never known it was thrown together in 3 months! All we had to do was select the options we wanted, the colors, and flowers and Jan Jan threw everything together for us. It was so amazing that we’re already talking about coming back one day when we want to renew our vows:) if your looking to have a small intimate wedding then Jan Jan is the woman to go to at Waterfront Weddings!!

I can’t say enough about how wonderful our experience was with Jan Jan and Waterfront Weddings. The venue was even more beautiful than the photos depicted. Every detail was so thoughtful and planned. They provide a lot of options for your photographer to capture all the special moments of your special day. Jan Jan even provided a special memorial chair for my new son-in-law’s father. Everything exceeded any and all expectations we had for our daughters wedding and we are so very thankful to Waterfront Weddings and would not hesitate to recommend them!

Waterfront Weddings is THE place to get married at the Ozarks! My HUSBAND and I chose this place because we not only love the lake, but we wanted to celebrate our love within our budget and with a small group of friends. The package options are the diverse to fit whatever needs you have. And if there’s anything you need, Jan Jan is there! Even in a small crisis the morning of the wedding, she saves the day!! Our wedding on Friday could not have been more perfect!

“The Christian & Christian Bullard Love Story: We met at Jan’s house, on Labor Day 2003, so it only seemed fitting that we get married at Waterfront Weddings when we decided to finally have our long awaited wedding. The venue blew our minds when we walked into her lovely home and started planning our magical day! Our beautiful waterfront ceremony & perfect 80 degree weather on 10/10/2020 was so inviting for us and our wonderful guests. The floral bouquet was perfectly matched to my dress , the decor was so gorgeous and the food/cake was more than amazing! Getting ready in my own personal “Brides room” was special to me because I was able to have many photos with my girls right before my walk down the aisle. My husband & I were able to sit like King & Queen at our very own table for dinner and for our cake ceremony. We had our own personal, playlist going throughout Jan’s speakers which was great to see all our guests loving the music. We also did a photo shoot with our “first look” moment captured by Brad Glidewell Photography and the pictures turned out amazing with a lake sunset behind us for our 5pm wedding. Highly recommended location for your wedding to take place at the Lake Of The Ozarks! Jan & her staff were nothing but professional and always willing to go the extra mile to make everyone feel welcomed & comfortable.”

“Jan Jan is AMAZING at what she does! She makes her couples feel special and plans beautiful ceremonies, so what more could you ask for?! Plus, she has great photography skills for someone who is not a professional photographer. This is great if you’re looking to save money! Her entire venue is GORGEOUS and honestly, a sunset wedding is the way to go. I loved how she was available to answer my texts/emails pretty much any time of the day, and she has such a fun personality! I highly recommend Waterfront Weddings to those who want a beautiful wedding without the hassle of decorating and finding an officiant (though you can bring your own).

Jan Jan made it possible for us to get married and it was so amazing. Your place is gorgeous also! You would’ve thought it was a big wedding the way she decorated and fought for us and the storm that day! LoL I wanted more than anything to have an outside wedding at sunset. Jan watch the weather and got everything ready and texted me and said there’s a break in the rain between 3:30 and 6:30. We will work it out between those times if you still want to do this outside. It may not have been my perfect sunset wedding, but Jan Jan made it the perfect wedding. I can not  give enough gratitude to this amazing woman and all her hard work! She even set me up with someone to do my hair, who was also amazing by the way!!! Thank you so much for all you do Jan Jan! You really are the best! It was both beautiful and amazing!

“Jan Jan at Waterfront Weddings made sure everything was absolutely perfect for our wedding day! We chose the Two Hour Love Story and all we had to do that day will show up. All the wedding details were flawless. We couldn’t have asked for a better venue. I would highly recommend this location for anyone wanting to do a small, intimate wedding ceremony! Thanks again Jan Jan for everything. ?? Our wedding day was so special ?”

“Oh my goodness…I cannot say enough about Waterfront Weddings!!! i am new at the lake but heard from Lyndsey at Serenity Medical Spa about Jan Jan and her business. I reached out to Jan Jan and she immediately won my heart! She invited us to come over and look at the area before so we could decide if that is where we wanted to have our weddings. Her venue is absolutely gorgeous and was perfect for what we were looking for!! She was so attentive to details and made me feel so relaxed – it was like working with a friend! I did not have to fret about anything which was a blessing! I would recommend Jan Jan and Waterfront Weddings to anyone who is looking to get married or renew their vows. We said our “I do’s” on 9.1.18 – a day I will never forget…the weather was great, the blessing of the stones was awesome, the mixing of the sands was beautiful….I am one happy bride!! A huge shout out to Sirena, Jan Jan’s assistant, who was amazing with my guests and especially me. Love you guys!!! ❤❤”

“Thank you Jan for the most perfect wedding! Jan absolutely LOVES what she does and we are so happy that we chose to get married at Waterfront Weddings. My husband and I wanted to get married at the courthouse and when that wasn’t an option, I felt so overwhelmed with the thought of planning something. We didn’t want a traditional large, day long wedding and were both nervous about standing up in front of people, even just our family. Jan made us feel comfortable and the ceremony was the perfect amount of time and was so unique. In the end we are so grateful we found Jan and we wouldn’t change one thing about our wedding.  Thanks again! ❤”

“There are not enough stars to rate here! Jan was so wonderful and easy going! I emailed her two days before our eloping date, we did it spur of the moment. She was AMAZING, she made it so easy and got everything set up perfect! We can’t thank her enough for planning as fast as she did! She is so caring and welcoming! She did great at making our day perfect!”

“Jan Jan is the best wedding planner ever!!! The venue was absolutely gorgeous and everything was so perfect!!! I forgot a couple of things in my pre-wedding bliss/mind fog, and Jan Jan was so helpful and accommodating! The communication was above and beyond; she helped me every step of the way and kept up communication but never bombarded me. So talented too!!! My big day was stunning and absolutely perfect!! And the price was fantastic! My family and friends thought we spent A LOT more than we actually spent, we got the “the works” package.  It was One Thousand times worth it!!!!! Thank you for everything Jan we ❤ you!!!”

“What a great experience!!! My husband and I got married here one June 10th. I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived by boat at the dock. The pictures really don’t do it justice. It really is so much nicer in person. The inside area for eating and getting ready was very nice. We got The Works package. The cake, and bouquet were amazing. Jan took care of everything for us. All we had to do was show up. Everyone there was so nice and ready to help with whatever we needed. Even her helper that set up the tables, made a big production of walking my 71 year old mother back to the boat, which made her feel very special, and a little sad she didn’t ask for his number  I highly recommend Waterfront Weddings! It was a very sweet and tender moment that I will never forget.”

“Our wedding was perfect because of Waterfront Weddings!! Jan did amazing with all of the details and love she put into our event! We boated over and as we pulled up my breath was taken away because of how beautiful it was! Jan and Amy went above and beyond to make sure the day was perfect! It was so relaxing to show up and everything was done for us! Jan did a family sand ceremony to include my step son which meant a lot to us to include him more.  We had a party of 30 so she had her work cut out for her but everyone there could not say enough wonderful things about the venue and how well all of were taken care of! I honestly wish we could get married every weekend because of how AMAZING our day was and we owe it all to Waterfront Weddings!”

“I can’t say enough about Waterfront Weddings. The setting and view, stunning and the service, excellent. No hassles or worries- just an exceptional ceremony with beautiful pictures. Thank you Jan for a lifetime of memories.”


“Organized, beautiful and professional!! Jan, Cheri and Roger made our ceremony one to cherish!! I would highly recommend this unique and intimate venue!”


“Amazing venue, yet so affordable! If your desire is for an extraordinary, intimate setting with a beautiful resort vibe, this is it! Jan will ensure that your wedding day is exceptional, memorable and fun!!”


“We eloped at Waterfront Weddings in a beautiful sunset ceremony, and couldn’t have asked for a better venue or host! We wanted the ambiance of a beach wedding, but neither of us was interested in dealing with sand, so Waterfront Weddings was PERFECT for us! The dock where the ceremony took place was perfect, with that amazing waterfront backdrop we had been looking for. Jan was nothing short of amazing. She had everything set up and ready to go when we got there. We literally just had to show up and say, “I do!” She also took photos for us, and they turned out so wonderful. There are several really great places at the venue for shots, and we couldn’t narrow down what we liked, so she just led us around and took a few at each one! We would absolutely recommend Waterfront Weddings for anyone looking for a ceremony on the water!”

“I highly recommend having a wedding here!!! We loved our wedding, it was sooo beautiful. Jan was awesome and very accommodating!! Cheri did amazing pictures!!! And Roger the officiant did a great ceremony!! The property is very pretty and made for great pictures!!!! We will remember this day forever!!!”


“Juan and I loved having our wedding here. Jan is a wonderful hostess – making sure everything was just right and Roger’s ceremony and readings are beautiful. The setting is gorgeous and we could not have found a better place for our wedding. We cannot give more stars or a higher rating – but wish we could! All week we’ve told everyone we meet what a great experience we had with Waterfront Weddings!”


“5 stars doesn’t even touch the experience we had! My husband and I got married here on sat 9/9/17 and I was blown away with how it turned out, Jan and her team did and outstanding job. Keep in mind we had 35 guests at our wedding and Jan paid so much attention to detail and went above and beyond our expectations to provide quality, personal/friendly service! Everyone on her team was so welcoming and so on track, I could just drive down there right now and hug them all! This experience was nothing short of amazing. We had many choices of venues to book and we couldn’t be happier that we chose this one. If you are looking for a beautiful venue, with a personal, relaxing not overwhelming atmosphere, at a price you can not beat for the service you receive here, this is your place! If I could do it all over again, I would chosen her sooner! Not only did we leave with an amazing day to remember, we left here with a friend for life.”


“We had such an amazing wedding. Things could not have been better. Jan did such a wonderful job making sure everything was perfect. Beautiful venue!”

“Jan did a great job and made the ceremony very touching and unique. She made sure we got all the photos we wanted and gave many suggestions. She was just so welcoming and excited for us. The venue was perfect for us as we had wanted a beach experience but as we love the lake, it was worked out great for us and felt right.”


“What a beautiful place for a wedding. My husband and I got married 11/12/17, and Jan couldn’t have made it more special. Everything was setup beautifully, to make our special day one we will never forget. Big shout out to Lisa, for being there to witness. You gals are the best!”
