    Perfect Small Wedding Experience

    My wife and I had our Secret Garden wedding at Forrest Hills Resort in February 2022, and the experience was spectactular. All aspectes of the wedding, planning, ceremony, and reception were executed flawlessly.

    Our key desires for the wedding were to have it small and intimate with the least amount of stress possible. Levi was a great guide through the entire process. He listened carefully and made great suggestions to help realize our vision of the wedding. His attention to detail and desire to be precise with communication was much appreciated.

    On the day of the ceremony he was present but not micro-managing. He worked seamelessly with the wedding cake baker (our package included a wedding cake), the officiant, and the photographer to keep the flow of the day smooth.

    The reception after the ceremony was wonderful. Again, Levi worked with my MC to ensure the traditional dances, background music, and announcements happened as envisioned. Simone and her kitchen and wait staff were surperb. She went above and beyond to ensure my wife and I and our guests were served promptly, and the food was delicious.

    For the night before and after the wedding we decided to stay on-premises in a cabin. The cabin was spacious and well-kept. It was the perfect romatic retreat to prepare for the big day and to celebrate and relax after.

    For anyone looking to have a small, intimate wedding at a picturesque resort and work with a coordinator who has great professional relationships with vendors, we highly recommend Forrest Hills.

    Forrest Hills Resort & Levi Hansard will be the best decision you make for your wedding!

    From my initial reach out to Levi at Forrest Hills, his professionalism, kindness, & knowledge made him stand out from the other venues we were touring. During the year+ time from when we decided to move forward with Forrest Hills, Levi was available, friendly, & helpful with any questions we had no matter how big or small. His services were unparalleled from the preparation through day of. Even things I thought I had fully thought through, Levi had thought of better & more thoroughly. We could not have made a better decision when it came to who we decided to trust with help on one of the biggest days of our lives.
