About Lake Forest Country Club

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.

    We booked our wedding with Lake Forest for August 28, 2015 after seeing the lake at sunset, the patio, and the large windows overlooking it all. (Prices for a Friday event were very reasonable - Saturday events have a minimum requirement that we couldn't meet with an intimate wedding of 60 people.)

    Jennifer Bachman became the Director of Events starting early in 2015. She was incredibly easy to work with, super flexible, accommodating, and made our wedding reception beautiful. I could not have asked for more. Several of our guests (including me) had dietary restrictions and allergies requiring specific changes to the menu. Jennifer was on top of all of these needs, starting with our tasting - which was superb - and she made sure each person had the right entree, offering different options so that we had no concerns.

    On the day of the event, we were very well taken care of. The server saw that my husband and I had to leave our plates to have pictures taken at sunset (gorgeous over the lake!), and she not only offered to wrap up our food but sent home completely separate new entrees for us! Jennifer personally put out a vase for my bouquet and a cloth napkin to blot the water from the stems so it wouldn't get on my dress. She ordered floor-length linens for us and patiently went over all the table arrangements and last-minute changes to our guest list. My mother-in-law dropped off cookies for a dessert table the night before, and they were arranged beautifully at the reception with tiered displays, napkins, and plates. We had a sparkler send-off at the end of the night, and it was completely organized for us from start to finish. We only needed to drop off the sparklers!

    Everything was perfect, and our guests commented repeatedly on what a beautiful venue we found with delicious food. We loved the outdoor option for cocktails as well! Go with Lake Forest and Jennifer if you want an easy-to-plan, beautiful, wonderful wedding!

    Lake Forest Country Club is a beautiful wedding venue. The wedding coordinator, Bethany Boyd, was easy to work with and helped me feel at ease with all of the wedding day details. She met with us numerous times to make sure everything was set just the way we wanted and everything went as planned on our wedding day. Bethany was always quick to respond to all of our emails and flexible with times to meet with us. The staff at Lake Forest were very professional and they all helped make our day truly special. The food was delicious and all of our guests complimented everything from the beauty of the venue, to the food. Lake Forest Country Club was everything we could have ever wanted for our wedding reception. It was a perfect place for us and I would highly recommend it to other bride and grooms.
