I highly recommend any couple planning their wedding to reach out to Nathan and Anissa. I've worked with Nathan and Anissa to coordinate multiple weekend training seminars for over 100 people. They are great to work with! With their experience and support, everything went smoothly and better than expected. Nathan and Anissa gave a lot of time and attention to me and all of my questions. In addition to giving countless hours on site before and at the seminars, they were very responsive, always a phone call or text away. Their positive, patient, and encouraging attitude was so helpful when I would get stressed out with all of the details and big picture ideas. Nathan and Anissa go above and beyond!Sent on 12/31/2017

The wedding venue of dreams!
We absolutely LOVED having our wedding at Forest Hall. The space was warm and welcoming with plenty of flexibility for outdoor and indoor options. The owners of the space were very accommodating and flexible - we were able to visit the venue multiple times during our engagement to test out different decorations and layouts. Forest Hall was also a winner in terms of value - the venue rental price is very reasonable and includes tables and chairs. The location is so naturally beautiful that you don't need many decorations, which is also quite cost effective. Also - pictures in this space are BEAUTIFUL. Lighting is gorgeous, the colors come together richly, and you cannot beat the buildings' old character (those original hardwood floors are to die for!).Sent on 02/19/2020
Both my fiance and I have said that we'd get married at Forest Hall again in a heartbeat. -- it will be a place that will always hold a special place in our hearts.

Beautiful Wedding in a Beautiful Venue
This venue is beautiful! During the day, it is naturally lit, and the windows are absolutely stunning. At night, the market lighting makes for an intimate and homey environment. The chairs and tables are beautifully crafted as well, and match the decor of the space well. Acoustically, everyone could hear any speeches or really music clearly, and the sounds turned out well in videos as well. Our wedding was in the winter, so we didn’t use the outside space, except for photos — and from our experience, there’s a great diversity of awesome places to take stunning photos in. The dance floor was a great size as well. Finally, the Forest Hall Staff made sure our day was perfect by setting up everything we needed, and the place was in perfect condition. All in all, a great experience at an amazing venue!Sent on 02/19/2020
