    Beautiful wedding weekend at the Forsyth B&B!

    We rented The Forsyth B&B Inn & Barn for our wedding weekend from Thursday until Sunday. We wanted a space big enough for both of our immediate families to stay together for the duration of the weekend (and for our small dog as well). This spot was absolutely perfect. The interior decor is very tastefully done, and goes so well with the existing charm of the space. The artwork selection is fabulous, and there is so much attention to detail that you can't help but appreciate every nook and corner in this space. All of the rooms and bathrooms were very spacious, and the outdoor spaces (porch and back patio) were an added bonus. We held our intimate ceremony in the barn, which even without any added decor was a perfect backdrop for it. The barn has a sound system, a bar setup, bathroom, and loft (which we used as the groom's getting ready space), and it was absolutely perfect. The barn doors open to the street which along with the skylight provided wonderful natural lighting. We also held a post wedding brunch the day after in the barn. Tamara catered this brunch, and WOW, the food was incredible! The quiche, scones, pastries, salad, and everything that Tamara prepared was absolutely delicious, and our guests were all raving about the food. The brunch was also set up beautifully with very sweet labels and tiered displays. From the initial contact throughout the weekend of our wedding, Tamara was so kind, very accommodating, answered any and all questions, and made our wedding weekend even more spectacular. We are so happy that we found the Forsyth B&B, as it was the perfect setting for this special occasion. Many, many thanks! Highly recommend!

    Beautiful Event Space & Dedicated B&B Owner

    My husband and I have stayed at The Forsyth as guests in the past and fell in love with the B&B. That’s why when we got engaged I knew I wanted to find a way to incorporate it into our wedding weekend. In fact, I reached out to Tamara (the B&B owner) before we even started looking at venues! Yes, it’s that good.

    We ended up renting out the entire B&B for the weekend along with the new, beautiful event space located in the backyard barn. I had my entire bridal party and their guests stay in The Forsyth and used the barn for both the rehearsal dinner and day after brunch. Besides having The Forsyth serve as the perfect “home base” for our wedding weekend, Tamara was an incredible resource throughout our entire planning process (not surprising as she always goes the extra mile to ensure her guests have the best experience possible.) Her knowledge of the area was extremely helpful when researching and selecting vendors. We were so grateful for her insider tips!

    We also worked with Tamara and her team to cater our day-after brunch. I am still having dreams about the lemon curd and breakfast scones. Her team not only delivered on an AMAZING menu, but also were efficient and attentive throughout the entire morning.

    We were already big fans of The Forsyth before our wedding weekend, but now it’s safe to say we’re obsessed. Thank you, Tamara! P.S. The barn now has an incredible finished bedroom loft suite, complete with an electric fireplace. The perfect bride and groom suite?! We think so.

    The Forsyth B&B and Barn's reply:

    Hi Amanda,

    Thank you for this glowing review. We loved being part of your wedding weekend, making brunch for your guests and helping the process along. Thank you again!

    My husband and I had both our ceremony and reception for our 50 guest wedding at the Forsyth B&B and it was absolutely beautiful! We didn't need to add many decorations because the venue already provides so much beauty. We rented out the entire B&B for the weekend to accommodate our families, so it made it so easy for our guests. Tamara was an amazing host and helped us throughout the entire process. We held the ceremony in the barn and then quickly flipped it for dancing for later in the evening. We used the entire space for the event (with exception of the bedrooms), and guests loved that they had the option to roam about: relax in the living room, dance in the barn, or dine in the garden. It was such a magical weekend. Thank you, Tamara!

    The Forsyth B&B and Barn's reply:

    Thank you so much Jen, it was so great to be part of such a special wedding weekend. We were so happy to help out and see the two of you married in such a fun wedding! Thank you again.
