    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.

    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!

    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.

    We had such a wonderful experience with Ford's Colony. They were so helpful with planning, flexible with our requests, and really went out of their way to make our day special.

    This place is gorgeous! We loved it from day one. Shay and Courtney responded quickly to any questions or concerns and they made the process so easy. The food was great as well. I recommend Ford's Colony to anyone...whether it's a wedding or a party.

    Ford’s Colony was a dream for our wedding day! The venue is SO beautiful that you hardly need to go above and beyond with decorations, the food was amazing, and Shay is absolutely the BEST!! She was so responsive, gave us all the information we wanted/needed, helped move things along for our rehearsal, and even helped us create a timeline for our day! Both my husband and I were pretty clueless when it came to a lot of details, but Shay was quick to give us guidance/advice and it made our wedding day go so smoothly!

    After touring Ford's Colony we knew almost immediately that this is where we wanted to have our reception. Shay was wonderful throughout the process from start to finish. The venue is beautiful, the food was great, and the food was fantastic!

    Shay Rybin is the events coordinator here and she was a dream to work with - responded quickly to every question including my inane bridal worries, presented all kinds of great options, and was so kind every step of the way. Ford's Colony Country Club is beautiful and easy for all your guests to have a ceremony and reception all in one place if you want. Minimal extra decorations are needed, place speaks for itself, and their packages include a LOT of things you would have to buy or rent separately elsewhere. So glad we had our wedding here!

    When my husband and I were touring venues, we had a few appointments scheduled after Ford's Colony and cancelled them all. I'm so glad we did. The grounds and interiors are absolutely gorgeous and Shay is the most amazing event coordinator. She ran our rehearsal and communicated with other vendors to make sure everything came off without a hitch. Staff was friendly and helpful every step of the way. I cannot recommend them more strongly to future couples!

    We used the venue for both our ceremony and our reception and it was beautiful from start to finish. Thanks to Shay, everything went flawlessly despite us making many last-minute changes. Shay was so helpful and friendly; she made sure we had everything we needed and made the process super simple. The banquet staff was great and made us feel special the entire night. We would recommend this venue to anyone!

    My husband and I fell in love with Ford's Colony Country Club from the first time we saw it. The venue and grounds were beautiful, and just what I dreamed for our wedding day! We had the ceremony and reception both on site, and it went off without an issue. The entire planning process was so smooth thanks to Shay! She was extremely professional, responsive and made me feel like a bride. I need to plan another event there just so I can work with her again! The food was also fantastic- we had a mashed potato bar and it was a huge hit!

    When initially beginning to search for a venue, my husband and I didn’t know where to begin. We made a few appointments and Ford’s Colony was the first we visited and the last. We instantly knew it was the perfect venue. There was plenty of space for our guests and it was a beautiful location. Our guests all raved about the food, atmosphere and the location. My husband and I worked with Shay throughout the year and she was extremely helpful and responsive. I HIGHLY recommend this venue.

    Where do I begin? When we were first looking for a venue, we stopped here and knew immediately that this would be our place. Between the beautiful atmosphere and the professionalism and helpfulness of Shay, it was easy to say yes to having our big day here. Shay always got back to us within a reasonable time with an answer. Through every change we made, she was very pleasant in helping us make those changes. We had our rehearsal, ceremony and reception there and from the words of my guests, it was one of the most beautiful and best weddings they had attended. From the front attendant to the waiters, everyone was friendly and accommodating. If there ever comes a time that I need another big event done, I will not hesitate to go back. Thank you Shay for everything you have done throughout the year for us!

    In the beginning we were working with Brittany and then switched over to Shay. The transition from 1 event person to the next was seemless! Shay helped answer all of questions in a timely manner and gave us great suggestions through the whole process! She was great to work and highly recommend Ford's Colony for a wedding!

    Our experience working with Shay at Ford's Colony was one of the most rewarding, stress-free experiences we had leading up to our wedding! Shay was clearly knowledgeable in planning events and made sure to ask as detailed questions as possible to ensure the day was planned out and we had as little as possible to worry about. The room for our ceremony and reception was prepared beyond expectations. I truly recommend having your wedding (or any event for that matter) at Ford's Colony. You won't regret it!

    We just celebrated our daughter's wedding here on Sunday, October 8th and even though it was raining outside, the inside was aglow with beautiful decor and a breathtaking reception room/tent! The cascading drapery and white lights provided a romantic and elegant setting, while the staff served an array of mouth watering dinners. One of the the best things about the venue is dealing with Shay, the event coordinator! She made the entire wedding planning a joy, shared wonderful ideas and was always available to answer our questions!! She's a gem!! I would highly recommend the venue, not just because of the food and ambience, but also because Shay made the entire process wonderful!!

    We started off working with Brittany Rice, then Samantha Garcia, then with Shay Rybin, and while I was concerned about the transition at first, our emails and calls never went unanswered. The venue itself is stunning, so it was an easy sell, but the great food and Shay's help made everything perfect. We got a ton of compliments from friends and family on dinner, the venue, the staff, and the flow of the night- Shay kept us moving like a well oiled machine. I wouldn't have changed a thing!

    What a picturesque location!! My husband and I toured many venues in search for the perfect setting, but this by far took our breath away. We experienced a few slight changes with the gain of a new event coordinator, but the transition was so smooth it did not alter our decision. Shay Rybin is PHENOMENAL!! Her professionalism and genuine attitude towards her clients, is reflected in her quality of work. Her hands on approach and flexibility became very interpersonal when we faced unforeseen circumstances. It's such an honor to call her our anniversary buddy!!
    Thank you Shay for everything you've done!

    I planned my wedding remotely from Florida. I started off with Brittany Rice, then Samantha Garcia, but ended up with Shay Rybin. I was a little concerned with the change of hands, but my ceremony and reception were practically flawless. The venue is beautiful and Shay was incredibly accommodating! She was onsite for our rehearsal and during our ceremony and reception. The food was phenomenal! We got SO many compliments on our choices! I had many friends and family members tell us it was the best wedding they had ever attended!!

    I can't say enough great things about our experience with Ford's Colony! From start to finish, Brittany responded quickly to my (many!) calls and emails. She walked us through the venue's standout room and menu options, and was very flexible when our start time and guest count changed. The entire staff went above and beyond to make sure our snowy wedding day was a success! Our guests are still raving about the outstanding food and service!

    Fords Colony was not our first choice for a venue, we originally wanted a barn venue however, we are so glad we so happened to stop by to check it out because our wedding was absolutely perfect! Fords Colony was the perfect venue for our wedding day. The ceremony site out by the lake is beautiful and our reception hall at the Garden Pavilion was amazing. We had about 130 guest at our wedding and still had plenty of room inside the Garden Pavilion, they have pretty white lights strung throughout the inside and outside around their outdoor deck. There was no limitations on personal decorations. The staff provided excellent service; our guest raved about how great the service and venue was.

    Don't think twice. Brittney Rice was available to us for 9 months. She is a true professional and has a "calming effect." Good job FC in hiring her.
    The venue was perfect and food outstanding. We chose FC based on the positive remarks about Brittney and glad we did.
    They are all true. Additionally, Christy O'Neil with "Truly Yours" (our planner for the day) didn't disappoint. She handled all the
    details for the day and we highly recommend both of these outstanding professionals. Thank you for a perfect day. Maxwell Family
