About

Up to 220 guests

Lake Forest Country Club - a golf club with a ballroom - is a wedding venue in the Cleveland, Ohio area. Outdoor ceremonies in the park and indoor wedding locations give couples options at this classic venue. It is located seven minutes from Cuyahoga Valley National Park, a 34-minute drive from downtown Cleveland.

Facilities and Capacity
Couples can invite up to 240 guests to their wedding at the Lake Forest Country Club. An outdoor ceremony finds couples in Lake Forest Park under a clean white pergola. The lush green grass and blue skies make the perfect backdrop as couples exchange vows. A crackling fireplace sets the scene for an indoor wedding, where couples can marry in a room paneled with ornate dark wood. For receptions, couples can use the Banquet Hall, with its large bright windows overlooking the lake, or the Formal Dining Room, with an elegant but private atmosphere. The Living Room is available for smaller wedding celebrations or gatherings.

    So blessed to have the support of the Lake Forest Country Club's team

    My wedding was a dream! That's not to say that there were not hiccups, but Debbie (Director of Events) was beyond helpful. She is always very professional, calm, helpful, understanding and helped me solve everything quickly while looking effortlessly cool! I highly recommend them to anyone who's looking for a beautiful venue, amazing food and VERY professional service. The team at Lake Forest Country Club makes your big day magical and takes away a lot of the stress from you.

    August 1, 2020

    We had our wedding in August of 2020. We looked at a couple of other venues but as soon as we walked into the LFCC – decision was made! Actually it was probably made from the parking lot:) The club is so pretty both inside and outside... Major selling points for us were that there was no minimum amount or number of guests required to have our event on a Saturday and that it was so close to our home in Hudson. We also wanted an inside ceremony so we needed a room with pretty décor and the club definitely provided just what we wanted! Stephanie was a pleasure to work with at all times. Covid made the planning an absolute mess but she was always so positive, responsive and encouraging and we worked through everything. It was the happiest day, everything went flawlessly, both service and food were amazing. It rained almost all day and it didn’t matter :) We absolutely loved having our wedding here!

    Absolutely recommend!

    We looked at several venues but immediately fell in love with Lake Forest Country Club. With it's warm lighting and dark wood, it gave us the cozy but classy vibe we were going for. We were able to have our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all in one place which made it not only convenient for us but also for our guests. Stephanie Dickens is the even coordinator and we so enjoyed working with her. She was always available to answer questions and helped with so many little things that popped up on the day of the wedding. She definitely knows her stuff when it comes to weddings and was very focused on helping us make our wedding the experience we really wanted it to be. The food was exceptional and our guests had so many compliments about both the food and the venue. You won't be disappointed having your wedding at Lake Forest...promise!
