Nestled in the heart of Finger Lakes wine country, the breathtaking panoramic lake views and impeccable service combine to create a wedding celebration as special as your love story.

Facilities and Capacity
The recently renovated facilities at Bristol Harbour include two lake view reception rooms with adjoining terraces, two outdoor lake view ceremony arbors, a private bridal suite, on-site hotel, and much more.

The Seneca Ballroom (4,475 sq. ft.) seats up to 260 guests and features elegant chandeliers, custom stone fireplace, built-in bar, and views of Canandaigua Lake. The adjoining Seneca Terrace (3,500 sq. ft.) is covered with a complimentary 60x40’ deluxe tent with clear top and sides, and can be used for your ceremony, cocktail hour, or additional seating for dinner service.

History
Bristol Harbour opened in 1972 as a championship golf course, and the facility quickly grew to include the hotel, dining, and wedding facilities. In 2016 Bristol Harbour was purchased by the Cook Family, who have invested in elevating the guest experience and layering the resort with fresh style, comfort, and luxury.

Location
Bristol Harbour is located on Seneca Point Road in Canandaigua, New York. The beautiful scenic location offers views of pristine Canandaigua Lake and the lush Bristol hillside, in the heart of upstate New York’s famed Finger Lakes region.

    We could not say enough great things about Bristol Harbour or the staff! Sara the wedding planner is beyond phenomenal! She kept us on track along the way and helps us to find other amazing vendors for our day. The staff on our big day was fantastic and went above and beyond to be sure everything was perfect. Our 220 guests had nothing but great things and compliments for the venue and staff. Huge thank you again to Sara and all of the staff!! We would absolutely use them again if we plan any events in the future!

    I could not be happier with choosing Bristol as our ceremony & reception site. We got married in September and had the most beautiful day. They just recently renovated the entire space and I can't say enough with how beautiful it is. We rented a cottage, for two nights. The night before we were able to set up some of the decorations that needed to be hung (and others I wanted to do because I am very specific!) We had our rehearsal and then were able to have everyone back to the cottage for snacks and drinks. Sara attended the rehearsal and then was back bright and early in the morning to make sure we had everything we needed. My girls and I were able to wake up right in our room, have our hair and make up done in the living room and attempt to relax overlooking the most amazing view. It couldn't have been better. Some things as simple as taking my purse and making sure everything was at our head table when we got there, leading us off right after the ceremony so we could have a few minutes to process, and bringing my family and I a quick shot right before to calm our nerves, she was perfect the entire time.
    I also want to talk about Sara during the renovation process. This won't happen again for future brides but I thought I would share. When we first put our deposit down with Sara, I think 3 months later, we were informed they had been bought out from new management. I immediately started writing e-mails asking what does this mean, what is changing, is my price changing, normal stuff. Sara immediately responded and calmed my nerves. Then a few months later I got another e-mail that the place was being renovated... the place we initially fell in love with was changing. Again, I immediately e-mail Sara with 400 questions and within a day, had everything I needed to know and pictures of what was to come, and started following her on Facebook to get weekly photo updates. The whole process could not have been handled better in my opinion. LOVE LOVE LOVE this place.
