About A Ford’s Colony Wedding
The Ford’s Colony Country Club is not just a wedding venue. The land features four top-tier golf courses, rolling hills, expensive lakes, and Virginia’s beautiful foliage. Although it is an exclusive members-only club, the event space and wedding venue are available to the public. The incredible event staff hosts countless club events, tournaments, and kids programs throughout the year; so, you can rest assured that everything will be taken care of by a team of experienced planners and service staff on your special day.
The Marsh Hawk and Lakeside ceremony sites are on the golf course lawns. A Ford’s Colony wedding always includes Chiavari Chairs for the ceremony and reception. You know your day will look good, and everyone will be comfortable. The sites have a decorative wooden beam arbor to frame your vows amongst the incredible views of the course grounds. Both sites are lakeside, while one of the lakes offers more tall grass around the lake as opposed to the traditional manicured golf course lakes.
The Garden Pavilion holds up to 250 guests and is the perfect room for an elegant wedding. It includes floor-to-ceiling windows along the outdoor patio that let in tons of light, as well as an incredible view of the grounds. This room receives a glamour treatment for every wedding day, with white drapery running throughout the ceiling and back walls. The drapes transform the space, especially when an event lighting package is included in the day. Even without the lighting package, the room’s elegant golden chandeliers and market lights create a beautiful ambiance for your special Ford’s Colony wedding.
Williamsburg Dining Room (80 guests) and Colonial Banquet Room (100 guests) are more traditional architecture-style rooms for smaller weddings. They feature cream walls accented with ornate white molding, classical columns, and fireplaces. Both rooms feature large windows that wrap around the room for views of their private patios and tons of natural light. But of course, they also feature elegant golden chandeliers to add a little something special to your day.
