    There are no words to sum up how much I love this place. I can't say enough good things about it. We got married at The Ford on April 16, 2016 and I am just dying to spend more time here. It's one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen and the staff is seriously incredible. I've never seen better service. We had the most perfect day all because of the lovely people at The Ford. It's absolutely breathtaking and worth every penny. Laura is just the best. We are stopping at nothing to retire here! The most beautiful Savannah area venue there is.

    Wow, what a spectacular setting The Ford Plantation provides! The instant you drive into this venue you feel like you've stepped into a magical place. The staff was exceptional, making the wedding day flawless, despite several weather challenges throughout the day. The chef delivered an amazing meal, and was flexible and creative. Laura Johnston was such a pleasure to work with...accessible, always friendly, and truly loves what she does. She helped make the planning process seem so effortless! James is the consummate professional, and exudes southern charm and hospitality, in perfect keeping with such a stately venue. If you should choose to have your wedding at Ford, you will not be disappointed!

The Ford Plantation is one of my favorite places. The historic mansion located within hundreds of acres of majestic oaks is a breathtaking venue for any wedding. The staff at the Ford Plantation is exceptional! Not only is the historic mansion beautiful, but this venue features a full service Spa, Catering, and many other amenities located within the exclusive confines of a private gated community. Your wedding guests will be impressed you were even able to get inside the place! By far the very best attribute of The Ford Plantation is the staff of professionals who work there. They pay close attention to every detail. You can rely on them to provide five star service to you and your guests. I wholeheartedly endorse this venue!
