Amazing venue! Absolutely gorgeous!

From the first time we toured the Fort William Henry to meeting Dawn, we knew that was the place we wanted to get married! Dawn and her assistant Natalie were amazing! They went above and beyond to make sure our day was special and exactly what we had planned! They are both kind and friendly, and have an attention for detail. The newly renovated Carriage house is beautiful! It was the perfect location for our wedding. The veiw of Lake George from the property is breath taking!! Our guests have not stopped talking about how amazing and beautiful our wedding was. We cannot thank them enough!! Anyone booking their wedding at the FWH will not be disappointed!!

Amazing Staff, Beautiful Views, Convenient Location

As a wedding DJ, I get to DJ in a lot of different venues. Some of these venues are great, and some of them are not so great.

Fort William Henry Hotel is one of our ABSOLUTE FAVORITE venues to work at. The only thing better than the amazing staff are the breathtaking views and scenery.

We have worked here a handful of times and we are always surprised by how efficient the venue staff are and how delicious the food is. We really appreciate working at venues that understand weddings because it truly contributes to the success of the wedding and most importantly, the dance floor!

Fort William Henry Hotel are some of the best at ensuring we don't fall behind and miss out on dancing time. We love working here because they help set us up for a rocking party. Every wedding we've done here has been amazing and the dance floor is packed the entire time!

We can't wait to work with more cool couples here in the future!

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.
