    We worked with Nick at Forte and he was so enthusiastic, thorough, professional and so helpful.

    Forte has beautiful views of downtown! Although it’s large enough to host many friends and family, it has a very warm and inviting feel. We worked with Nick who answered all our questions, calmed our nerves and offered many creative solutions for our vision. We would highly recommend Forte for your wedding....we received countless comments on how beautiful everything looked and we couldn’t be happier!

    All around outstanding.

    From the very beginning, Nick was fun, pleasant, and most importantly straight forward. We felt we got competitive pricing and exceedingly high quality and service. There was plenty of space for our guests (200+), parking was great considering event space is downtown. Bathrooms were spacious and clean. Food was amazing. Event space is pretty and did not need a lot of additional decorations. The windows added a great design detail to the space. We couldn’t be happier that we chose to have our wedding reception at Fortè. Everything was great!
