Forest hall made all my wedding venue dreams come true. The space is not only beyond gorgeous, but it worked perfectly with the flow of my wedding. Aneesa and Nathan, the venue coordinators, are INCREDIBLE! I can’t say enough good things about them. They know the venue inside and out and went out of their way to help make my wedding at Forest Hall gorgeous and stress-free. They explained all the layout possibilities and helped me figure out the best options based on what I wanted for my wedding.Sent on 04/04/2018
The price is beyond reasonable, especially considering both for the amount of space and the comparison with similar venues! I also saved a bunch of money because I needed significantly less decorations since the space is already beautiful with the market lights, stunning wood floors, exposed brick, and giant windows. It’s amazing to have the outdoor/indoor possibilities! We ultimately decided to do both the ceremony and venue inside, but we loved having the option to have the ceremony outside. There are gorgeous places to take pictures outside and all over the property. Forest Hall has everything we wanted and more!
I would have my wedding at this venue again in a heartbeat.

Aneesa is such a wonderful soul to work with! As soon as I met her, I knew that I wanted to have my wedding at Forest Hall not only because of the beautiful place but because I loved her bubbly sweet personality. She has remained in contact with us throughout the planning process although we live 5 hours away. Forrest Hall is the best bang for your buck! The venue is SO pretty and a perfect spot to hold a wedding. Thanks so much for everything!Sent on 09/12/2018

The most beautiful venue!
Even before my husband and I were engaged, we discussed what kind of venue we may want, and we both really liked the restored mill look. By pure luck, my husband happened to see Forest Hall on the internet one day, though it was still very new! We were SO excited about it, and he had actually surprised me and set up a tour for the weekend after we got engaged. I think we pretty much expected to fall in love with it in person, and we did — from the quality of service of the owners to the beautiful, natural look of the venue itself, it was the perfect choice for us. We loved having the freedom to pick our own vendors but also having guidance of recommended ones from their website, and decorating the beautiful space was so easy, since it looks amazing even without it. I know Forest Hall is always constantly improving, and I can’t wait to see the future weddings there. If you want a beautiful, rustic venue in the Triangle, I’d never stop recommending this to you.Sent on 02/23/2019
