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!Sent on 08/06/2020

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!Sent on 11/02/2019

A Dream Come True!
Stephanie, her team and the club are absolutely AMAZING! Stephanie was attentive, kind and extremely helpful. Throughout our year and a half long wedding planning process Stephanie was always there to answer every single one of my questions and to reassure me that things would be handled. Even the day of our wedding Stephanie and her staff were so caring and always made sure that my husband and I had everything we needed so we did not have to lift a finger or leave our guests.Sent on 07/04/2019
We had our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception at the club and each space (indoor and outdoor) was more breathtaking than the last!
A big thing for my husband and I was to have great food and Lake Forest exceeded our expectations. The food made in house by the chef was delicious! While my husband and I greeted guests at dinner, the number one thing everyone said to us was how great the food was and how impressed they were with every plate.
We utilized the beautiful and spacious get ready room on site and the hair and makeup artists were so happy with how large the vanity workspace was. We also had breakfast and lunch served in our get ready room with drinks, which made the day so much easier. They even made sure to accommodate our dietary restrictions and food allergies so everyone was able to have something to eat and drink.
Overall I cannot thank Stephanie and her team enough for being so kind and accommodating. They really made our wedding day what we had always dreamed of!
A beautiful venue and great staff!
