  • When initially beginning to search for a venue, my husband and I didn’t know where to begin. We made a few appointments and Ford’s Colony was the first we visited and the last. We instantly knew it was the perfect venue. There was plenty of space for our guests and it was a beautiful location. Our guests all raved about the food, atmosphere and the location. My husband and I worked with Shay throughout the year and she was extremely helpful and responsive. I HIGHLY recommend this venue.

  • Where do I begin? When we were first looking for a venue, we stopped here and knew immediately that this would be our place. Between the beautiful atmosphere and the professionalism and helpfulness of Shay, it was easy to say yes to having our big day here. Shay always got back to us within a reasonable time with an answer. Through every change we made, she was very pleasant in helping us make those changes. We had our rehearsal, ceremony and reception there and from the words of my guests, it was one of the most beautiful and best weddings they had attended. From the front attendant to the waiters, everyone was friendly and accommodating. If there ever comes a time that I need another big event done, I will not hesitate to go back. Thank you Shay for everything you have done throughout the year for us!

  • In the beginning we were working with Brittany and then switched over to Shay. The transition from 1 event person to the next was seemless! Shay helped answer all of questions in a timely manner and gave us great suggestions through the whole process! She was great to work and highly recommend Ford's Colony for a wedding!

    Daria, It was such a pleasure to work with you and Joe! I love seeing your pictures of your wedding day with us! I hope you both have cherished the last few months as husband and wife. Enjoy those pb&j's ;)

  • We just celebrated our daughter's wedding here on Sunday, October 8th and even though it was raining outside, the inside was aglow with beautiful decor and a breathtaking reception room/tent! The cascading drapery and white lights provided a romantic and elegant setting, while the staff served an array of mouth watering dinners. One of the the best things about the venue is dealing with Shay, the event coordinator! She made the entire wedding planning a joy, shared wonderful ideas and was always available to answer our questions!! She's a gem!! I would highly recommend the venue, not just because of the food and ambience, but also because Shay made the entire process wonderful!!

  • Our experience working with Shay at Ford's Colony was one of the most rewarding, stress-free experiences we had leading up to our wedding! Shay was clearly knowledgeable in planning events and made sure to ask as detailed questions as possible to ensure the day was planned out and we had as little as possible to worry about. The room for our ceremony and reception was prepared beyond expectations. I truly recommend having your wedding (or any event for that matter) at Ford's Colony. You won't regret it!

  • We started off working with Brittany Rice, then Samantha Garcia, then with Shay Rybin, and while I was concerned about the transition at first, our emails and calls never went unanswered. The venue itself is stunning, so it was an easy sell, but the great food and Shay's help made everything perfect. We got a ton of compliments from friends and family on dinner, the venue, the staff, and the flow of the night- Shay kept us moving like a well oiled machine. I wouldn't have changed a thing!

  • What a picturesque location!! My husband and I toured many venues in search for the perfect setting, but this by far took our breath away. We experienced a few slight changes with the gain of a new event coordinator, but the transition was so smooth it did not alter our decision. Shay Rybin is PHENOMENAL!! Her professionalism and genuine attitude towards her clients, is reflected in her quality of work. Her hands on approach and flexibility became very interpersonal when we faced unforeseen circumstances. It's such an honor to call her our anniversary buddy!! Thank you Shay for everything you've done! Kiyona & George

  • I planned my wedding remotely from Florida. I started off with Brittany Rice, then Samantha Garcia, but ended up with Shay Rybin. I was a little concerned with the change of hands, but my ceremony and reception were practically flawless. The venue is beautiful and Shay was incredibly accommodating! She was onsite for our rehearsal and during our ceremony and reception. The food was phenomenal! We got SO many compliments on our choices! I had many friends and family members tell us it was the best wedding they had ever attended!!

  • I can't say enough great things about our experience with Ford's Colony! From start to finish, Brittany responded quickly to my (many!) calls and emails. She walked us through the venue's standout room and menu options, and was very flexible when our start time and guest count changed. The entire staff went above and beyond to make sure our snowy wedding day was a success! Our guests are still raving about the outstanding food and service!

  • Fords Colony was not our first choice for a venue, we originally wanted a barn venue however, we are so glad we so happened to stop by to check it out because our wedding was absolutely perfect! Fords Colony was the perfect venue for our wedding day. The ceremony site out by the lake is beautiful and our reception hall at the Garden Pavilion was amazing. We had about 130 guest at our wedding and still had plenty of room inside the Garden Pavilion, they have pretty white lights strung throughout the inside and outside around their outdoor deck. There was no limitations on personal decorations. The staff provided excellent service; our guest raved about how great the service and venue was.

  • We looked at several venues before choosing Ford's Colony and we have been extremely happy with our choice. The room we chose has gorgeous windows overlooking the golf course, which meant that natural light was flooding into the room (we had a winter wedding and did not want to feel "trapped" in a room). The event manager, Shay, is incredible! She walked us every step of the way, answered tons of emails and accommodated all our requests. On one occasion, when snow shut down Williamsburg, we Skyped so that we could make the last decisions about decorations. She did not miss a trick. The food was excellent and the portions generous. Through Shay, the chef worked with us to prepare a menu that would meet our expectations and those of our guests. At the reception, the waiting staff was impeccable and very attentive. Kathy (the waitress looking after our table) was absolutely lovely and made sure that we were attended to at all times. We are very, very happy with our choice and feel that S... Read more

  • We had our November wedding and rehearsal here. Brittany and Samantha were both on top of every detail, and the value FCCC provided was unmatched anywhere else we looked in the Hampton Roads area. We had a lot of small details that were very important to us, and the venue handled them all like pros. Nothing negative to say -- we are so grateful to all the staff for ensuring our day was absolutely perfect. One tip we have would be to set an agenda for site visits ahead of time, so you as the couple can prepare to make decisions on things at the meetings, as well as share your wedding timeline with the staff at Fords Colony, so all your vendors are on the same page.

  • I cannot say enough about this venue and the staff, especially Shay Rybin! She literally saved me during the planning process for my wedding....there was so much I did not know about or needed a suggestion for, and she was right there with plenty of helpful suggestions and knew exactly what I needed. She was always two steps ahead and made sure the wedding day went perfectly, which it did! The venue is absolutely beautiful, food was fantastic and the grounds are gorgeous and great for photography. Definitely recommend this place, I wish we could do it all over again because it was so amazing!!!

  • Fords Colony is a beautiful venue, with amazing staff! I had 4 months to plan my daughter's wedding, and with the assistance of Shay Rybin , the private events director, we were able to have a beautiful, stress free wedding! Shay helped with the smallest details, and was there for us every step of the way, including the rehearsal, ceremony, and reception up to the cake cutting! The banquet staff was attentive and the dinner was amazing! We had so many compliments on how good the food was, and how beautiful the rooms were decorated. I will definitely recommend Fords Colony to my friends.
