Forest hall made all my wedding venue dreams come true. The space is not only beyond gorgeous, but it worked perfectly with the flow of my wedding. Aneesa and Nathan, the venue coordinators, are ... Read more INCREDIBLE! I can’t say enough good things about them. They know the venue inside and out and went out of their way to help make my wedding at Forest Hall gorgeous and stress-free. They explained all the layout possibilities and helped me figure out the best options based on what I wanted for my wedding. The price is beyond reasonable, especially considering both for the amount of space and the comparison with similar venues! I also saved a bunch of money because I needed significantly less decorations since the space is already beautiful with the market lights, stunning wood floors, exposed brick, and giant windows. It’s amazing to have the outdoor/indoor possibilities! We ultimately decided to do both the ceremony and venue inside, but we loved having the option to have the ceremony outside. There are gorgeous places to take pictures outside and all over the property. Forest Hall has everything we wanted and more! I would have my wedding at this venue again in a heartbeat.

Forest Hall at Chatham Mills-- The perfect Venue!

Forest Hall at Chatham Mills was the perfect venue for my wedding reception! The owners are wonderful to work with and were very flexible in scheduling walk throughs for us. I love the exposed brick, ... Read more all of the natural light, the beautiful farmhouse tables that are included with the rental, and all of the nooks that could be used for DJ, cake, photo booth, caterer, etc! I also love that there are two "sides" of the venue that can be used as a dance floor area, dining area, ceremony area, really whatever you would like! I don't think I could have picked a more beautiful venue-- everything was clean and set up just perfectly!

NOT Only For Weddings!!!

I had a surprise birthday party at Forest Hall - one for the books! The venue was simply perfect - rustic and elegant, spacious, the natural light made the space bright and cheery. Held 140 guests ... Read more very comfortably. Aneesa and Hannah were a joy to work with, and no detail was too small to work through with them. Their flexibility and calming demeanor helped make the planning and the day of the event go off without a hitch! Cannot WAIT for the NEXT significant life event to celebrate there!
