I tend not to give reviews unless the service or product is beyond terrible or absolutely stellar. Fortunately for me, it’s the latter. My wife and I had such an amazing experience at the Forest Lodge. I know you are supposed to be pampered and taken care of for your wedding, but my wife and I seriously felt like royalty. Under Anthony Panchery’s leadership everything fell into place quite impressively, from the ceremony and cocktail hour to the dessert and everything in between. The army of servers that came out to serve our guests were an incredible bunch. Not sure where Anthony got them from but they were all very respectful and obviously hard working. My wife was even assigned a dedicated bridal attendant, Jimena, who was no doubt an asset to the evening. My family and friends had nothing but compliments for how everything flowed. I was so blessed with how many people come up to me to say how this was the best wedding they’ve attended in quite some time. From how beautiful the outside venue was, to how everything seemed to flow so smoothly. Even my DJ said how impressed he was with how he and the other vendors were treated. I had nothing to do with how my wife found this place for our wedding, but I’m so glad she did. I was also very pleased with how flexible Anthony and the Forest Lodge were with scheduling (and re-scheduling) when we had to cancel TWICE last year due to various Covid related issues. It’s probably no sweat off their back because it’s something they do for a living, but I hope they will one day realize how much of a blessing they made our wedding experience. Anthony and his people brought together our months of planning and stress (stressful mostly for me) and made a wonderful masterpiece out of it. Other than this review, I cannot thank you guys enough for giving us the experience we had!

"Forest Lodge went above and beyond our expectations for our wedding last Saturday. This staff is so professional, accommodating, and not to mention they are all EXTREMELY kind. They were flexible with everything that we asked them for, and put on a wedding that was miles beyond what we thought it was going to be. Sean, our Maitre d’, was so professional, and did not skip a beat the entire night. He went through a rehearsal with all of my groomsmen, accommodated my wife and I the entire time, and also took the time to make sure my nieces and nephews were having a good time and got them whatever they needed as well. If I didn’t know any better there were probably multiple clones of Sean running around, because I can’t fathom how he was in so many places at once without breaking a sweat. My wife and I can’t say enough about how great he was. Also the bridal attendant Lea made my wife feel incredibly special and she cannot stop ranting and raving about her. If there were more than 5 stars to give, it still wouldn’t be enough."
