Best. Decision. Ever.
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 could go on and on, but the bottom line is this place is awesome. Great value, reasonably priced, great staff, great food, and beautiful. If I had to to it all over again, I would absolutely still choose Ford's Colony.Sent on 11/28/2018

Beautiful indoor wedding options!
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 outdoor ceremony spots too, but I didn't want to risk anything with the weather. Again, we are so happy that we chose Ford's Colony Country Club as our wedding venue!Sent on 11/01/2018

Perfect venue for our wedding
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 beautiful to start with, it required little decoration besides centerpieces on the tables. We also loved that we and many of our guests could stay at the Marriot right next door, which is a beautiful hotel and if our guests wanted to get a little too tipsy they could take a 5 minute walk back to their rooms at the end of the party. Also, Ford’s Colony has a bar onsite where we were able to hold a little after party. They allowed us to do a sparkler grand exit at the end of the night, which some places do not let you do. Also, I should mention that we got a great deal by booking less than 6 months out; so while the quick wedding planning is stressful, it worked out really well for us because we would not have been able to afford this place otherwise. All in all, Ford's Colony was beautiful, the service and food and drinks were on point, and we recommend it to anyone.Sent on 10/30/2018

Weddings at Ford's Colony are some of my favorites to photograph! Their venue space is open and full of light even on a cloudy day! The staff are so sweet and are good at keeping the flow of the wedding day smooth! I love the space around the venue! There are so many places for amazing portraits and the reception area is like something out of a magazine! I always recommend this venue to my couples!
We have enjoyed working with Ford's Colony throughout the years. Brittany is a pleasure and the venue is stunning. Highly recommended
Brittany is a joy to work with and one of the best in the industry! She anticipates the needs of everyone and is a true professional. As an officiant, it's brilliant to arrive at a venue and to be able to trust the wedding director. More than that, she's like a couple's best man, maid of honor and mom all at the same time. There are not too many venue coordinators around who is as talented. And the beauty of the venue is perfect. This is a winning combo here for any event or wedding. Much love, Pastor Cory <><
