My Dream Wedding
This was our number one choice for our venue. My husband and I had an amazing experience at the Fort. It is a totally smooth operation and Angie is an absolute pro at what she does. We booked the DJ through them and used their decor recommendations. I would highly recommend it. The food was delicious and a good value. My dad paid the bar bill and his only comment was that the pice of soft drinks was a real killer. We would have been better off drinking more booze. No other complaints though.

Romantic Wedding Venue
When I found out Fort Gibraltar was a wedding venue I knew I would be married there, I hadn't even met my fiance yet...
We loved the rustic, intimate and historic venue. It's a one stop shop, we did our pictures, outdoor ceremony and reception all in the same place. We even had axe throwing in between the ceremony and reception to keep our guests busy. We needed very little decor because the space itself is so beautiful. Hanging lanterns and string lights surround the guests while you ste flanked by a huge stone fireplace. It's the most wonderful feeling to be surrounded by all your closest friends and family in such a warm environment. And the food, so good! No one had anything bad to say about the food. One thing I would say is the bar line was a bit long and guests mentioned there was not 3 bar tenders which we had paid for. Overall a perfect venue for our favorite day.

Angie and staff did everything they could to ensure that our wedding went well. The food was AMAZING, staff were attentive & friendly. Angie was extremely helpful with the planning process suggesting things that we didn’t even think of! Connie was great with decor and the room looked beautiful. We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding venue!
