Everything we Dreamed of!
Forrest Grove was the best decision we could have made regarding our wedding. They were accommodating with our special requests such as a signature drink and cocoa/coffee bar. They helped us decorate the venue with limited time and even held out hope with us to have a outdoor wedding even with a large chance of rain. Everything worked out as we had dreamed and they were a HUGE part in making that happen. Everyone raved about the food and they loaded us up with all the leftovers. We are STILL enjoying it! Thank you!Sent on 01/29/2019
