Fort William Henry was the perfect wedding venue for us. It is beautiful, the staff were incredible and it was lower price than most other equivalents.Sent on 05/30/2019
The wedding coordinator Dawn is great to work with. She will go way out of her way to help you get everything prepared. Throughout the dinner, the staff treated my wife and I with incredible service. I don't think I'll ever be rich or famous enough to get the service that they gave us.
Bravo to the staff and thank you for the memories.
Also, for wedding photos we took some photos with the French and Indian war reenactors; made for really cool photos!

We chose FWH for our 8/31/19 wedding and could not be happier!!!! Dawn is absolutely amazing to work with and went above and beyond to make our day run smoothly. From bar/package changes while planning to bustling my dress day of, she was there every step of the way with helpfulness and encouragement. She is so talented at what she does.Sent on 09/04/2019
The staff was kind and incredibly helpful, including the chef who accommodated MANY food allergies. The food was delicious and the portions were huge! Everyone left full and happy.
We can't say enough good things about our choice. From the moment we stepped onto the property, we were able to just relax and enjoy our weekend. Thank you so much to Dawn and the FWH team!

Better than I could have imagined!
We had an incredible wedding day thanks to Dawn and her team. We planned our wedding from across the country and Dawn was fantastic with responding to emails and phone calls from multiple people. The staff was super flexible with times to meet with us and taste food based on when we were in town. Dawn was amazing on the day of and turned the room into something beautiful with the minimal decorations we brought. She helped pull me aside to bustle my dress and pulled my now husband and I into the reception room to give us a few quiet minutes to reflect and eat. As someone who has planned events for work, I thought I would have a hard time giving up control, but Dawn made it so incredibly easy to sit back and enjoy my wedding day. The reception room and view was unbelievable and we really heard nothing but good things from our guests. Thank you Dawn and FWH for an amazing day!Sent on 09/10/2019

Dawn and her awesome team at The Fort are all over everything!! If you need any help at all setting up a shot, or need some chairs moved, whatever - someone is right there helping you out. I never feel rushed at The Fort because they know the timeline cold and really stick to it - such a treat as a photographer! Gorgeous views of Lake George don't hurt either! The food is outstanding, and every wedding vendor is treated with great care. I love to shoot at The Fort, and look forward to every wedding there.
Beautiful view of Lake George
From the gorgeous views, immaculate venue and professional staff, the Fort William Henry is one of the best this area has to offer for your wedding!
