Beautiful, cozy, and flexible

From our first tour of Forest Hall, my husband and I knew it was the venue for us. The space is beautiful and customizable, but more importantly the staff and ownership are kind, caring, and fantastic at their jobs. Our entire family and bridal party were impressed with the venue manager, Danielle's, efficiency and organization, and how well she kept our rehearsal and wedding day running smoothly. Danielle, Greg, and their team are some of the best in the business, and they made sure our wedding was every bit as beautiful as we had imagined and then some.

A venue that has everything you need in one spot!

Forest Hall is a wedding venue that can adapt to indoor or outdoor needs, offers a mix of historical, vintage, rustic and industrial, and provides a private, secluded option for any set up you wish. The staff and catering are awesome- so helpful and kind throughout the process- and flexible to meet needs and wishes. Highly recommend!

Perfect wedding

My son and his wife were married here last Saturday. I cannot say enough about the entire staff. From set up to food to making sure everyone was where they needed to be, they were incredible. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking to host an event!

Director of Sales & Venue Manager

Danielle has been working in the wedding business for 16 years. She worked her very first wedding when she was 16 as a table server and knew right then that this was the business for her. Danielle says about her job, “I love watching all the final details come together on the day of the wedding and seeing the look on the couples faces as the vision of their “dream wedding” comes to life right before their eyes” Clients absolutely love working with Danielle because they feel taken care of every step of the way. She also serves as the day-of coordinator for those choosing to work with Forest Hall directly for that

Venue Owner

Greg and his wife, Maria, have been in the restaurant and catering business for over 30 years. Previously owners of “Catering By Design” in Cary, NC, they sold that business to move to Chatham County and open a restaurant (The Sycamore) and new catering company (39 West). They took over ownership of Forest Hall in 2020. Over the years, Greg has taken pride and care in every wedding he’s hosted and catered, making sure that the couples are not just happy, but are over-the-top impressed with the food, service, and attention to detail that he and his staff provide. If you read our reviews, you’ll quickly get a good understanding of the great impression Greg makes on clients!
