Checked all our boxes and then some!
Forest Hall was the first venue I checked out when we started planning; I had four other venue tours scheduled that week, but every tour after that just made me more certain that we’d already found our sweet spot. It checked every box we had and others we hadn’t even thought about yet: lots of big beautiful windows to let in natural light, romantic market lights for after dark, separate spaces for both ceremony and reception, gorgeous indoor AND outdoor space, fabulous farmhouse tables and chairs – the list goes on. The place gave me butterflies. Another important detail – the venue manager, Aneesa, is probably the sweetest and friendliest human being you’ll ever meet. I had a lot of questions as this was the beginning of our planning process, and she was amazingly helpful from the get-go. She positively exudes enthusiasm and a genuine desire to help you have the best possible experience – not just on your wedding day, but throughout the process of planning for it. After we booked, I started following the Forest Hall Instagram, and it was evident that Aneesa and her team absolutely pour themselves into every wedding, and into making this venue the best it can be. There were ongoing improvements leading up to our wedding (a dimmer for the market lights, newly sanded and stained farm tables), which just made me more excited and confident in our choice. I’ve been gushing about Forest Hall since we booked it and haven’t stopped even now that that wedding is over. In fact, my new sister-in-law and her fiancee loved it so much that they booked it for their wedding in May. We can’t wait to celebrate love and family all over again in this magical place!Sent on 12/08/2019

Forest Hall at Chatham Mills is the absolute best!
My husband and I got married at Forest Hall at Chatham Mills a week ago today!! We are still swooning over how perfect our day was. When we first toured Forest Hall we immediately fell in love and knew it was the venue for us! We love the industrial look with just a little bit of rustic. This venue provides the beautiful farm tables as well as chairs and the cute market lights plus so much more!! We love that Forest Hall also allowed us to choose our own vendors and make it what we wanted. We would recommend Forest Hall to everyone we know, we had the best experience! Also, check out their open houses that is where we found most of our amazing vendors!Sent on 09/14/2019
