Beautiful venue, exceptional service and delicious food

Our wedding reception at Forest City National was everything we could have dreamed of. The property is gorgeous with a beautiful view of Fanshawe Lake - our guests were blown away by the view and particularly the gorgeous fall foliage in October. We were able to take beautiful photos on the property once we arrived from our ceremony. The indoor reception space where we held our dinner is also very nice and newly updated.

Our guests really enjoyed the delicious dinner, cocktail hour hors d'oeuvre, and the drinks throughout the evening.
The pizza for our late night snack was also a big hit.

Planning a wedding during the COVID-19 pandemic was not easy and not without stress. However, Stephanie was incredibly understanding, thoughtful and accommodating. She made sure we were well taken care of leading up to the event, answered our many questions and helped guide us through the rules and restrictions at the time.

Not as Advertised

We got married at this beautiful venue in June 2022. Leading up to the wedding we had an amazing experience with their lead co-ordinator Stephanie. Consistently answered many e-mails quickly and in a helpful manner. We had no reason to expect our wedding day to be executed as poorly as it was in the end. The whole experience was very blindsiding based off of such a positive pre-experience. To sum our main heartbreaks:
1. Our package includes 'Antipasto and bread trays'... these were never served on the day. We had a large wedding and people were always looking for hor' doerve servers. We thought having those boards out would have been a nice touch for people to self serve. This was apologized for and we were given $300 but it is unfortunate and irreversible none the less.
2. We selected their top Food & Beverage package and tacked on premium bar- making our guests experience a top priority and paying top dollar for it. On the day our reception ran 3.5 hours for which the bar was closed the whole time. That's fine... but the table wine was never replenished! 1 bottle of white and 1 bottle of red per table of 8 was all they got! Most of our tables experienced a mostly dry wedding for 3 hours of our reception despite us being promised a 'premium open bar and table wine'. We were so sad to hear many of our guests tried to get served at the golf course bar. This is something that only came to our attention after the wedding and now we don't know what we paid for.
3. Our head table was served cold food and when asked for hot plates to replace it, more cold plates were brought out.
4. The food tasting knocked our socks off! Making selections was soooo hard. Especially when it came to dessert. The dessert our guests were served wasn't plated anywhere near as nice as at the tasting and tasted nothing at all as we remembered. We ordered a caramel dessert but the dessert we got was some kind of dense chocolate square.
5. Our coordinator who we had been in contact with for 15 months leading up to our wedding day, who knew everything about our wedding and was so pre-helpful, left our wedding during cocktail hour. So when everything at the reception started falling apart the staff we were speaking to were strangers and frankly no one seemed like they knew anything about our wedding. She didn't tell us she'd be leaving before our reception, neither did she say goodbye.
6. Most upsetting of all, when we brought all of these concerns and disappointments to their attention after we returned from our honeymoon there was a complete switch of tone. Our guests character's were brought in to question and in general we felt like they hated us, our guests, and our wedding day and had no interest in taking accountability for 90% of our very valid concerns.

These 6 points were among many others but I would consider them the most relevant to anyone reading this.
The venue is beautiful and clean which were two things that drew us there. However, anyone considering their wedding there should avoid any premium upgrades as the value is truly not there. I wish we purchased the lowest package in hindsight because that is the level of service we got despite paying their top prices.

Venue made my day perfect!

My husband and I got married at Forest City National. Stephanie and the whole team there couldn’t have made it a more special and perfect day. Everything about the venue, the food and the staff was amazing. They went above and beyond to make it absolutely perfect, and they were there for us if we needed anything day of, and if we had any questions prior to the day they were quick to answer and help. There was also a beautiful bridal suite to hangout with my girlfriends before hand which made things a lot less stressful, and made for a lot less running around. I would 100% recommend this venue, and couldn’t have asked for a better spot. Plus who wouldn’t want to get married by the water! Thank you Stephanie and team at Forest City!

Wedding Venue Of Our Dreams

From the moment we walked through the front doors for our first tour we knew Forest City National Golf Club was the perfect place for us! From our meetings and many emails with Stephanie, to the FABULOUS food tasting to the wedding day itself everything was ...dreamy.
The ceremony space was stunning and there were an amazing number of places for photos.
The banquet hall was the perfect size for our 170 guests and those guests are still talking about the sensational food. We want to say thank you the Chef, to all the staff at Forest City , and a big shout out to Stephanie for truly caring about our day.

Our experience was more than we could have asked for!

Forest City National Golf Club was the perfect choice for my Husband and I. Stephanie & her staff were and are phenomenal. They are reliable, helpful, dedicated and make you feel at home. As soon as we stepped on the grounds we were able to envision that being our place to get married. We couldn’t have chosen a better venue. The food is to die for and we were able to capture beautiful pictures to have lasting memories. ❤️

Perfect Fall Wedding!

We booked Forest City National Club almost two years in advance and was very impressed by the responsiveness and communication with the Events Coordinator leading up to our event.
We had our short ceremony overlooking the lake and it was absolutely breathtaking.
I added only minimal decor to the banquet hall with florals and candles nothing else and the space looked magical. You don't need much to dress it up very much.
After our cocktail hour outside on the patio we went inside for our 3 course dinner, speeches and dancing. The guests could not stop raving about the food.
A massive thanks to Stephanie and her servers for making our day simply magical.

It was everything we dreamed of

Planning a wedding can be super stressful, throw Covid into the mix and the stress doubles. Stephanie and her team helped us create a wedding that was more than we could have dreamed of. The venue is gorgeous, (so many places to take beautiful pictures!), we got so many compliments on the food, and the flow of the day was simply perfect. I'd recommend Forest City National to anyone who wants a picture perfect day!
