First Colony Winery was the perfect place for my partner and I to elope!. The venue is gorgeous, and the staff is friendly, accommodating, and attentive. I would strongly recommend FCW as a wedding or ... Read more event venue to anyone!
Heather and Bruce were very responsive and flexible from the first time we visited the winery. We chose First Colony because my daughter wanted a bbq 4th of July 'party' style wedding -- not a ... Read more ballroom type affair. First Colony was rustic enough to satisfy that description, but had the capacity to seat 150 guests in air conditioning if the weather didn't permit us to have outdoor seating. It did in fact pour down rain during dinner and we were comfortable with our 145 guests upstairs. The DJ was set up downstairs in the tasting room and that's where the dancing took place. Some of the features of First Colony that appealed to us: the price; tables and chairs didn't have to be rented; we could bring in our own alcohol for the caterer to serve; there is a large walk in refrigerator to store flowers and food before reception; the very kind owners. Some of the negatives: with a group as large as ours we weren't able to accommodate dancing and eating in one area inside; the food servers had to replenish the upstairs buffet via the main stairway that the guest were using; the outdoor lighting wasn't sufficient without additional lights brought in; the air conditioner did not cool sufficiently. Overall we were very pleased with First Colony and felt we made a good choice based on what our daughter wanted.
