    Perfect wedding venue!!!

    It was a pleasure working with Dawn and the team at Fort William Henry! Throughout the process Dawn has been very helpful in answering all of our questions. As we got closer to our wedding, Dawn helped us stay organized and coordinate with vendors. The day of was absolutely amazing!!! Everything was perfect, and we could relax and enjoy ourselves. Dawn made sure that we got some time to ourselves, which was really nice. The bartender was excellent, and all of the waiters were kind and helpful! We were super happy with our delicious food! And the views from the premises and ballroom are stunning! Our guests have been raving about the great time they had and how good the food was! We had a perfect wedding day, which was thanks to the excellent work of Dawn and the whole Fort William Henry team!

    Excellent from start to finish - wouldn’t change a single thing!

    Dawn and team were fantastic from the first email. She made sure we felt special on our special day. The planning couldn’t have been easier or more organized. Dawn felt like family on our wedding day and helped keep our anxiety/stress level down by always having a smile and a kind word throughout the day. The staff was just as lovely. Even the waitstaff and other employees who we passed in the halls anticipated everything we needed (before we even knew) and stepped in to help put boutonnières on, bustle my dress, etc. The entire evening went smoothly and Dawn and team are to thank for that - they are absolute pros at this!
    Extra bonus: the proximity to Lake George! The view is perfect. Our pictures are GORGEOUS. You just can’t beat the uniqueness of having the Minnie Ha Ha’s horn blowing a few times during our ceremony and making an appearance in our photos as we said “I do” - what a great treat for someone who grew up taking steamboat rides on the Minnie every vacation! It made us and our guests smile!

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.
