I could not possibly give more praise to Michael Garner and his entire team at Colonial Country Club. My family and I met with Michael about 8 months prior to our wedding date this past April. He was extremely helpful and available during the entire process. All of the vendors that the Colonial Country Club works with, Mason's Bakery, Dream Productions (linens) and JH Designs for the flowers were incredible. Each recommended vendor was absolutely the best of the best. Michael helped us to personalize our menu, table settings and every other detail. He suggested hotel accomodations as well as limo services. Michael is extremely calm, cool and collected which made it very comforting to myself as an anxious bride. He knows exactly what he is doing and how to make an event a success. The venue assisted in creating my perfect table setting and I could not have been more pleased with how my wedding day turned out. The Country Club is well maintained and everyone was a pleasure to work with. Something that I will never forget as I got ready to walk down the aisle was that Michael pulled out mints out of his pocket and offered me one before I met my husband at the end of the aisle. I would recommend this venue and Michael Garner for anyone looking to get married in the Fort Myers/Naples area!

We hadn't searched many places before Colonial. When we arrived they provided SO much information that it was hard to leave without saying yes we'll go with you. We left Colonial to simply look at other options. We walked in to most other places and turned around and walked out. Then, when we did talk to others nothing they provided compared to Colonial. Colonial is the place to go! No one else compares! You walk in and from the start they are welcoming and BEYOND helpful right up until the day you are married and the reception to follow. I was so anxious thinking of all the things I needed to do before my wedding and their assistance put me at ease. Go with them no question about it ;-)

Our daughter's wedding was very beautiful and we were very happy with the care and thoughtfulness of all the staff. We were very happy that Michael and Rob were so attentive, accommodating and experienced in all the intricacies of wedding planning and carrying everything out so well and happily. The "package" made a lot of sense and proved less stressful than it would have been trying to go to different vendors for such things as the cake and flowers. Working with the catering options was easy and the quality of the food was excellent. We couldn't have been happier with the attentiveness to all our needs. We thank you most sincerely and would certainly recommend the CCC to other young couples planning a wedding. In actuality, I have done so already!

When I was planning my wedding, I was planning from a different state. I have family who lives in Ft. Myers and we decided to get married there. I only had a limited time to be there in person for the planning and this is why I loved Colonial. When I went to visit, I loved it. It was beautiful inside and out for the ceremony and reception. Almost everything was included which made planning so easy for me. If I needed a suggestion about another vendor, they had one ready that was absolutely phenomenal. Every little thing that I asked them about, they provided for me. Not once did they tell me no. The people I worked with, Rob and Mike, were absolutely amazing. I never felt like anything would be amiss that day. I definitely had the best experience with them and my wedding was absolutely perfect!

Rob and Michael were so supportive from Day 1!! The grounds were beautiful, the location was perfect as far as being able to have the ceremony and reception in one place. Our guests raved about the food, which was delicious. Michael really saved the day when our baker didn't make our cake. He called another bakery and was able to get us a cake in a very short amount of time. I was so impressed that he took care of the problem without upsetting me while I was gettiing ready.

I first would like to thank Micheal and Rob for the great job they did on making my daughters wedding day perfect. We had to plan the wedding from out of state and myself being in the industry was very nervous on having the wedding my daughter wanted and working with people I didn't know. The first time meeting and talking to micheal and rob I knew we were in good hands. Their wedding package is by far the best , look no further. Being from out of state, having the wedding and reception at the same place was a big plus for our guests and ourselves. I can't stop looking at our photo's the venue was so beautiful.The food was amazing, (we did a duet plate)we received compliments all night on the dinner.Micheal was on site from beginnig to the very end of reception. Everthing went great but comforting to have him there if I would have needed anything. This may be helpful we did chicken fingers for the small children, kitchen knowing that in advance served the children when adults were served their salads. The cake was the best wedding cake, and one less person we had to deal with, they made all arrangements in our pkg.They use the best bakery in fort myers, cut your cake early so you can serve right after dinner, you don"t want your guests to miss this dessert. Just can't say enough on how wonderful everything was. We used Stacy from(Set Free Photograghy), Helen with(J H Designs) for flowers, and Mike from(Black Tie D.J.) They all did an awesome job. Everyone was very professional and I highly recommend them for any function. We are still getting compliments on our very special occasion, I just can't give Micheal and Rob enough praise on a job well done, your the BEST. Thank you sooo very much again. sincerely Mrs. Akin.

Michael and the staff at colonial were phenomenal!!! They catered to our every need and made every accommodation that we asked for right down to a last minute order of french fries! Everything i asked for, they were able to make happen. It was comforting to know that on what could have been a very stressful day, i walked into my reception and everything was taken care of and it looked beautiful and the grounds are an amazing view and backdrop to your wedding photos. The all inclusive packages that they offer make things even easier instead of going a la carte. They also have vendors that they work with that offer discounts once they know you will have your wedding at Colonial. Amazing!!! I couldn't have asked for better service and a great experience.

I can not possibly say enough about Michael Garner and his staff at the Colonial Country Club. I looked at many places and met with many people in the surrounding area to find the perfect venue for our special day. When I met Michael and toured the Club, I had found exactly what I was hoping for.
Michael did everything possible to make all our dreams come true. Our guests still today tell us what a lovely evening they had. The food was superb, the music wonderful (again thanks to Michael's help), the surroundings absolutely breathtaking. We have Michael to thank for it all, his professionalism, guidance, and expertise made a special day an exceptional memory for us and all who attended.
A venue can only be as good as the manager and his staff, with Michael and his staff at Colonial Country Club your wedding day will be perfect, just as our's was.
Thank you again Michael for everything.
P.S. see for yourself when you visit Michael, ask him to see the photo album.

The ceremony grounds and reception area were spectacular.
Rob and Michael, the food and beverage manager and wedding planner were on hand
and made sure everything ran smoothly.
The buffet and service were excellant. The cost of the reception was most reasonable.
Many thanks to the CCC staff who made it a very special occassion.

We were married at Colonial Country Club on July 23, 2011. From day one Alan and Robert were there to meet our every need. We were on a budget and found that Colonial Country Clubs package was around our price and exactly what we wanted. As a first time bride, I had questions every other day and they were always there to answer them. I never waited more than a day to hear back. On our wedding day it did rain unexpectedly, but everything still turned out fine. Robert was very quick to change everything inside. The food and service was amazing as well! Our wedding was one to remember and friends and family still talk about it. :-)) Would highly recommend checking into them.

I highly recommend both Michael and Rob, as well as Colonial Country Club. Michael Gardner was EXTREMELY helpful and made our wedding go extremely smoothly. He was on point the entire time and made sure that my wife didn't feel any additional stress or pressure, even though we had a couple of minor issues on our behalf. Michael and Colonial bounced right back and didn't miss a beat. Noone was the wiser....

Can't recommend them highly enough! I spent several weeks researching venues, and am convinced there is not a better value in Southwest Florida. The venue is beautiful, the food is excellent, and the all-inclusive packages make everything relatively stress free. Michael and Alan were both excellent. From assisting us throughout the entire planning process, to impeccable attention to detail on our wedding day, they were so helpful.

Michael Garner was our go to man for our ceremony and reception.
I've had four close friends get married at Colonial and we all had a great experience. Michael was so patient and flexiable with plans for my wedding. My mother and I were very organized which helped Michael out a lot but he was always willing to sit down with us to go over details and he was great with e-mails for quick questions. Colonial's prices were best in town. They didn't nickel and dime you for everything. You also get your cake through Mason's Bakery which was delicious! Alan was the food manager and he was also a big help in planning our meal. The food was awesome and huge portion sizes. Knowone went home hungry. I would recommend going there for dinner on Thursday or Friday night. They are open to the public, you won't be dissapointed. I was so pleased with how everything went so smoothly for our wedding. It was a stress free day and I was to appreciative. Thank you so much again Michael and Alan your're the greatest!!!

I had my wedding at the Colonial 2 days ago and it was amazing. I cannot say enough about how beautiful it was. Michael and the staff were so great. We have gotten so many compliments on the location. The appetizers and dinners were so good!

I was a little nervous about having a country club wedding but i am so unbelievably happy with the results. This is definitely the best place to have a wedding in Lee County. I guarantee you will not go wrong with this location!

Colonial country club is the best! Every time I emailed Michael he was always quickly to respond. So glad we live in Naples and found a place just as great/cost efficient as somewhere in Naples cause our snooty friends from Naples were totally impressed! Everyone loved the food and never had Fillet Mignon at a wedding before!

My daughter was married in December. We looked at a number of different venues and chose Colonial Country Club. Everything was perfect. The banquet manager, Michael, was like having a wedding planner. He helped with every detail and had great advice on many areas we weren't sure about. I had a number of our guests comment at how good the food was and how pretty the setting was for the ceremony. They even had champagne, cheese and fruit for the bride and her attendants before the wedding. I'd highly recommend Colonial Country Club.

My husband and I couldn't have asked for a better venue for our ceremony and reception! We visited about 4-5 different venues in Fort Myers and Colonial was an easy choice. Working with Colonial was very easy and care free. We had a lot of customizations to our wedding reception and they were on board from the start. You can't beat the great price and perfect service! The food was excellent and everything ran smoothly. Our guests are still raving about the wonderful time they had at Colonial! Thanks Michael!

Colonial Country Club impressed me from the beginning. The whole
Place had a elegant theme to it and Rob, the banquet manager, and his assistant Mike were such nice and professional people to work with! The price per person was a bit steeper than other places I looked, but things like a custom cake from Mason's Bakery, sheer linen lighting from the ceiling and included chair bows and
Linens were worth it. PLUS the food was absolutely amazing!! They know how to do weddings
And I would highly recommend them!

Michael and Rob at Colonial Country Club were absolutely amazing! They made my wedding reception perfect and I could not have asked for more. The food was delicious and the room was gorgeous. Michael checked on me periodically through the night to make sure I had everything I needed and that I thought things were moving smoothly. When we first arrived from the church, Michael was out there waiting to see what my husband and I would like to drink and while we were waiting to be introduced, he brought us a plate of hors d'oeuvres from the cocktail hour. It was also a gorgeous venue for pictures. Our professional photos look amazing there!

I attended a wedding here knowing that I would be hosting my daughters wedding there within a few months, so we looked very closely at all the details. First off at the cremony there were not enough chairs, and the chairs that were out were dirty. People sat without looking and their clothes filthy..not a good way to start off the night!! Also, the manager Rob was not directing the guests to the back where the cremony was, so people were just "looking" around for where the cremony would be!! After the cremony the guests got directed to walk back in to the building through the regular restaurant,right were their were people eating!! The cocktail hour took 15 full minutes before hor dorves started to be passed on very small platters. The cheese display showed a lack of creativity with 2 types of cheeses, grapes and melon. No utensil to serve the fruit laid out!! When we walked in for dinner, champagne had already been poured and was warm!! Dinner itself was good, but felt rushed. Definitely alot to think about!! I hope they improve after speaking to them about what I noticed. Its too late for us to change the venue, but I would definitely think twice about this place!!

Colonial Country Club responded with the following comments:

Hello!

I greatly appreciate your feedback regarding your recent experience with a wedding at our club. However, I am confused as to why you chose not to contact me directly regarding your concerns if everything was not to your satisfaction. I am happy to discuss any issues you may have had at any time as we certainly want everyone's experience to be beyond amazing.

On a side note, I would like to say that we present each and every bride with a survey upon conclusion of the wedding regarding their thoughts on their special day and the bride from this particular event gave us scores of 100, 150, and 200 out of a possible 10 for each and every category! Comments were even added about the food: "even better than the tasting!". Another comment from the bride regarding whether they would have another event with us "Absolutely!". From the additional comments section of the survey: "loved every second".

Please contact me at your earliest convenience so that we may ensure your daughter's upcoming experience is as fantastic as the bride from the wedding you just attended.

Best Regards,


Rob Podley
