Forrest Grove Plantation is a banquet hall venue located in Denham Springs, Louisiana. Featuring a refined ballroom and full-service catering firm, the venue can host engagement parties, wedding showers, rehearsal dinners, ceremonies, and receptions. At less than 30 minutes from Baton Rouge and 90 minutes from New Orleans, this venue is easily accessible.

Facilities and Capacity

Forrest Grove's ballroom can accommodate large occasions with enough space for over 300 guests. Its neutral tones and chandeliers can match a variety of wedding styles. Dark hardwood floors provide ample room for the newlyweds’ first dance. Ceremonies held at the venue typically take place outside under the covered pavilion, though there is also an indoor ceremony space. Couples who book ceremonies here will have the option to use the Bride’s Room for getting ready.

Services Offered

Ceremony packages can include a rehearsal prior to the actual event in the location of your choice. The outdoor ceremony area is accented with an arbor that can be decorated with flowers to add a personalized flair. The venue’s wedding coordinator will organize the details of your special day, and they will be on hand to assist you on your wedding day. They can help with floral arrangements, catering menu, and vendor coordination. In addition, the venue offers linens with decorative sashes in nine different shades to match a variety of wedding palettes. To wrap everything up, a complimentary bottle of champagne can be provided for the happy couple. With their food and beverage services, they can supply china, flatware, glassware, and barware.

Cuisine

The catering team at Forrest Grove pays close attention to the preparation and presentation of their meals. They strive to use fresh and fine ingredients for all of their dishes. Couples can choose from two catering packages, both featuring hors d’oeuvres, carved meat stations, and entrees. The venue serves authentic Southern cuisine, specializing in regional dishes including jambalaya, grits, and seafood. Some of their specialty items include stuffed mushrooms, mini crawfish pies, and buffalo wings.

    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!

    Thank you Shannon & Kellie! We were honored you chose us and enjoyed being part of your special day! Congratulations again!
