    Beautiful and FUN Wedding Venue

    Where do I even start? We had the best, most fun and beautiful wedding at the Forest House Lodge. Our wedding coordinator was Chenoa and she was truly a lifesaver and an amazing teammate in planning and executing our wedding. We had a couple extra special touches we wanted at our wedding and Chenoa was there every step of the way putting us at ease, fighting our battles, and doing whatever she could to make the day absolutely perfect for us.
    The staff at the FHL is also truly wonderful. As the bride, they made me feel like everything was handled and I had zero worries on the big day. They also provided us with amazing service and extra special touches and surprises we weren’t expecting throughout. They really know how to put on a wedding, and they really know what the happy couple needs. The drinks were great, the food was top-notch, and everyone agreed that this wasn’t your typical wedding fare and many people told us how great the food was. The day after we were still reeling from how smoothly everything went and how truly perfect our big day was.
    Finally, the venue. The ceremony site is breathtaking. The patio for cocktail hour is beautiful. The reception area is amazing and a great place to keep the party flowing nicely all evening. The “playroom” for the afterparty is so fun and has something for everyone. The rooms offered are just what your guests need after a night of partying, and breakfast the next day? Just want you need after all that booze. If you want a beautiful wedding and the greatest party of your life, the FHL is your place.

    Best Venue Ever!

    Forest House Lodge was the best venue! Not only is it beautiful and have the best staff, they also take all the stress of a wedding away and are definitely worth the price tag. We were supposed to get married 5/2020 but had postpone because of COVID. They made sure we were taken care of and offered us a new date a year later without any extra fees. In a time of uncertainty, they guided us through the crazy. I had a few extra precautions I wanted to add because of covid and they happily obliged.

    As for the finer details, the food was delicious, the cake was beautifully made and exactly what we wanted. I loved that we gave them our colors and general theme and they executed the decor perfectly. My guests raved about Trevor, the bartender (we do too!). They went above and beyond after hearing my grandma had passed a few months earlier and they suggested a special tribute for her. Which was something we didn't even know we needed.

    Not only will your actual day be amazing if you choose this venue but their food tasting night was a blast as well. Being able to connect with other brides helped me find my seamstress. As well as see how a party can be thrown there.

    If you are looking for a stress-free, beautiful and friendly venue you won't go wrong with Forest House Lodge.
