    My husband and I had our rehearsal dinner, ceremony and wedding at The Colonial Hotel. I am SO pleased with everything!!! Our wedding weekend was absolutely beautiful and all of our guests had a fabulous time. I literally do not have one complaint.

    Our ceremony was in the garden and our reception was in the ballroom (we had 105 people). We used the really nice bar and grill for the rehearsal dinner and also guests went there after the wedding to keep the night going (it's open until 2am). The suite we stayed in was beautiful and perfect- big enough for your girls to get ready together the morning of the wedding!

    The night of the wedding everything went flawlessly and was perfectly decorated. I had someone fluffing my dress as I walked down the isle, making sure the bridal party got apps and drinks during pictures, etc. Service was impeccable and food was delicious! At the end of the night my husband and I stayed in the suite and entered the room to a bottle of campaign, which was a very nice touch and made it all the more special.

    Mary was WONDERFUL!!!! I can't say enough about her. She is so responsive (which is important to me) and had an answer for every single question. She made the process so easy and I feel so lucky we had her to work with.

    Two other things I was to add which were concerns of mine as a bride are:
    1. There were 2 weddings the night of ours. I honestly didn't even notice- the venue handles this very well.
    2. Pricing is upfront and open, you don't get any surprise costs or feel like you will (unlike other venues we visited).

    Overall, I can't say enough about the staff and the venue! I recommend this venue to anyone looking for a perfect wedding day!

    Mom & dad approved!

    It has been a week since my daughters wedding and I am still getting emails, texts and calls from guests telling me it was the best wedding they have ever been to!!
    Mary and the staff were MORE than accommodating and put up with numerous phone calls, emails and surprise visits(we live down the street lol)
    We had many guests staying overnight and everyone was happy with their stay.
    We danced all night, closed down the restaurant after and had a nice breakfast (for 68 people) the next morning.
    Everything was smooth sailing and it was the BEST night of our lives (especially my daughters)….I do not have ONE complaint and I HIGHLY recommend The Colonial!!
