  • Fords Colony was wonderful! I booked this venue pre-covid, and got married May 2021. Melissa, the Director of Private Events, was OUTSTANDING. She and her team worked with us for months and months talking through capacity uncertainty, social distancing, etc. Melissa truly went above & beyond to make our entire wedding weekend special. At the end of it all, I felt like she was a friend, rather than an employee of the venue!! Of course, the venue was beautiful, the food was delicious, and the set up was impeccable, but the thing that stands out the most about this venue is Melissa! I HIGHLY recommend!

    Thank you so much Maddie! You, your husband and your family were the dream clients! I am still over the moon about your wedding weekend with us back in May! We are honored to host your big day!!

  • Ford's Colony has been absolutely incredible! The place is so beautiful and they have so much to offer! I fell in love with it when picking my venue. Once I saw Ford's Colony, I canceled every other venue tour I had scheduled. My wedding has suddenly been postponed due to covid-19, and the people at Ford's Colony have been the absolute best at getting that rescheduled for us! We are forever grateful for Jessica and Peter!!!

  • Planning a wedding in 2020 took a great deal of patience, and ability to look beyond the uncertainties ahead. Throughout the entire wedding planning process, Melissa and Peter were so accommodating, and took away so much of that uncertainty. They handled each change (and there were quite a few) with understanding, professionalism, and attention to detail. They went above & beyond to make sure our wedding day was special, and that our guests were comfortable. Additionally, Melissa and Peter took the time to know us, and form a personal connection - which really sets them apart, especially when you’re celebrating one of the most exciting moments of your life. We are SO glad we chose FCCC for our wedding. Thank you to Melissa and Peter! We could not have asked for a better wedding-day experience.

    Thank you so much from all of Ford's Colony! Peter and I are so glad you gave use the opportunity to plan Bobby and your big day. While 2020 was not the greatest, your wedding day was wonderful! Cheers to many years of joy!

  • Choosing Ford's Colony Country Club as the venue for our wedding and reception was hands down the best decision I could have made. From beginning to end, I don't have a single complaint. The staff is incredible. I worked with Courtney and she was AMAZING. She made sure everything was taken care of and kept the whole day on track and took away all the stress. The staff working the reception were all so kind and attentive. The food was incredible. We decided to stray from the traditional menu and do stations-- taco bar, slider station, mac and cheese bar and salad bar. It was a HIT with the guests and I was appreciative that the venue was able to make it work for us. Not to mention, this place is GORGEOUS. Without having to add a whole lot. The chivari chairs, linens (depending on color), tables, all included in price. Even gold (or silver) chargers! The reception area has beautiful chandeliers, lighting, and draping on the ceiling. The room we got married in has so much natural light. I... Read more

  • When I was looking for a wedding venue, I wanted to make sure there was a good indoor option for both the ceremony and reception. Ideally, I wanted this to be two different spaces, but I wasn't sure I would be able to find it. When I walked into Ford's Colony Country Club, I knew I had found the place! Our ceremony room was beautiful with walls of windows and natural light. Cocktail hour was on the patio outside, and our reception was in the lovely Garden Pavilion. It was absolutely perfect! Ford's Colony provided the chairs and linens, and they also provided all of the food. Our meals were delicious, and I have gotten numerous comments from my guests about how good everything was. We got positive feedback on our appetizers and our signature cocktail as well. Ford's Colony was great to work with, and the venue was perfect! The spaces are lovely, so we did minimal decorations. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for an indoor or outdoor wedding venue. They have some lovely... Read more

  • This place was absolutely beautiful! We got married on the golf course, looking over the water. The back-up plan/ “if it rains” room was gorgeous as well so we felt good knowing if the weather didn’t cooperate, we had a great alternative. Shay and Courtney, the on-site coordinators were so sweet and patient and detail oriented. They were always there to quickly respond to all my questions, provide recommendations and reassurance. The property itself is beautiful and my husband loves to play golf, so getting married on a golf course was perfect for us. He even got 2 free rounds of golf on the wedding weekend. We loved having all aspects of the wedding in one location so our guests did not have to drive somewhere else for the reception. After the ceremony on the golf course, our guests went to the patio for cocktail hour and then moved inside the gorgeous reception hall for the party. The reception room has string lights and lots of windows looking over the view and was so beautif... Read more

  • Ford’s Colony was a dream for our wedding day! The venue is SO beautiful that you hardly need to go above and beyond with decorations, the food was amazing, and Shay is absolutely the BEST!! She was so responsive, gave us all the information we wanted/needed, helped move things along for our rehearsal, and even helped us create a timeline for our day! Both my husband and I were pretty clueless when it came to a lot of details, but Shay was quick to give us guidance/advice and it made our wedding day go so smoothly!

  • Shay Rybin is the events coordinator here and she was a dream to work with - responded quickly to every question including my inane bridal worries, presented all kinds of great options, and was so kind every step of the way. Ford's Colony Country Club is beautiful and easy for all your guests to have a ceremony and reception all in one place if you want. Minimal extra decorations are needed, place speaks for itself, and their packages include a LOT of things you would have to buy or rent separately elsewhere. So glad we had our wedding here!

  • When my husband and I were touring venues, we had a few appointments scheduled after Ford's Colony and cancelled them all. I'm so glad we did. The grounds and interiors are absolutely gorgeous and Shay is the most amazing event coordinator. She ran our rehearsal and communicated with other vendors to make sure everything came off without a hitch. Staff was friendly and helpful every step of the way. I cannot recommend them more strongly to future couples!

  • Ford’s colony Country Club was well worth the money spent. They were easy to work with and the decor for the reception, ceremony, and rehearsal blew us away. Not only that but they had the most amazing food. It is a bit pricey but in this instance I feel you get what you paid for.

  • Ford's Colony makes for a gorgeous wedding venue. On the day of the wedding, the staff were very accommodating and were fun to work with. We had a choreographed first dance, which was surprise to our guests, and wanted to do a quick run through on the dance floor after the rehearsal to make sure we wouldn't fall off. The banquet manager quickly put together the dance floor for us to practice. We booked Ford's Colony about a year and half before the wedding and in that time, the Private Events Director we booked with took a new position at another country club. We had some issues with new Private Events Director as we were leading up to the wedding. Anytime we made a change and were given a new summary of charges, we noticed the taxes were higher than they should have been. She kept telling us it was because the service charge is also taxed, which was never the case before. When I brought that up, she would go back, correct the taxes, and blame the system for the error.

  • The Ford's Colony Country Club staff were overall amazing! Even during the rehearsal dinner when I had to finish making a surprise bridal party gift, the staff went out of there way to find some tweezers to help me out. And during the reception, while we were constantly saying hi to everyone, the staff made a plate of food for us and kept making sure that if we needed something, they would take care of it. From the very beginning of first viewing the venue, all the way up to the wedding, and even afterwards, Shay was extremely helpful and awesome at her job! She was so down to earth that it made the planning process extremely easy.
