Sweet words from our couples + guests

The Forge is gorgeous. Simply stunning. Every inch of the property from the venue space to the on site cabin has been beautifully done. My wedding was September 6th and to this day my guests are still talking about how pretty it was!! The staff is amazing. They went above and beyond to make sure I had everything I wanted and needed on my day. Kathryn and Rick oversaw my day and I don’t think they sat down once. From making sure things were in place, constantly clearing off tables, even driving 20 miles to town to get me cake plates because in true me fashion, I forgot them lol. The indoor/outdoor vibes were everything I was looking for and from the second we drove onto the property, our venue search was over. From that day until my wedding was over, Jennifer was so helpful with any question or concern I had. From recommendations, which led me to find our amazing photographer, to even staying in touch with me up to my wedding day even though she couldn’t be there. This place is a hidden little gem in the heart of Texas. You won’t be disappointed 🖤   Ryley White, Sept. 6, 2020


      I LOVE THIS PLACE!!! I’ve actually hand the opportunity to work three weddings here as a hair stylist. Electrical outlets are very accessible and it’s pretty user friendly. She’s rearranged things since I was there last, but as a stylist it’s easy to set up in the cabin to make the bridal party more beautiful.

The space is beautiful and the owner is amazing! She’s has a huge heart to work with wedding parties. She’s fantastic to work with!    March 30, 2020


The Forge Venue is a fabulous one stop party/wedding destination! The property is beautiful and Jen and her staff are beyond accommodating! They have so much combined experience with events big and small, and made our wedding reception an absolute dream come true! I would highly recommend The Forge Venue for weddings, special birthdays or anniversaries, vacations or family gathering, like a family reunions,…
The house on the property is adorable and well appointed and updated furnishings with anything and everything that you would need for a weekend getaway! We plan to go back for sure!    Terri Bass, Mother of Groom, Oct. 17, 2020


I had my wedding at The Forge last October, and I have to say, I was overwhelmed at how much I loved my entire experience with them, from booking to the big day! I had the toughest time finding a venue that would work with the creative vision I had in mind for my wedding day, and after one particularly discouraging venue-hunt session at my kitchen table, I gave the Forge a call, and instantly I knew I had found the place! Jen and Clint are some of the most caring and wonderful people I know, and their professionalism and efforts to make my dream wedding day come to life were OVER the top! Jen’s attention to detail and designer eye were a huge help for me, especially with the hectic-ness I faced as the day got closer! The property itself is so breathtaking, like an escape from everyday life, and the industrial/modern barn for the reception was the perfect canvas for me to let my creativity loose for designing. The cabin where I got ready is exquisite, and had everything I needed so that I could just relax and enjoy myself with my girls the day of. Talk about feeling SPOILED, every bride should feel like I did that day! I can’t count the number of positive comments I received from my guests about the beauty of the venue and how much they loved the whole experience! The Forge is a very versatile venue that is a perfect “blank canvas” backdrop for the off-beat, adventurous, and creative bride, as well as the modern, rustic, or traditional bride. I’m a Forge fan for life, and if you’re considering booking with them, I’m giving you a wholehearted YES YES YES!”  Hannah Borden, October, 21, 2017

I recently held my wedding at the Forge and you will find no better team of people to work with than Jen and Clint! My mom passed away 10 years ago and not having her to help plan was daunting and overwhelming. Jen jumped right in, talking out ideas and assisting me throughout my planning process with things above her call of duty. She made me feel so comfortable with the venue by the time the big day rolled around, I felt right at home! Regarding the venue itself…STUNNING. The cabin is everything this half-city, half-country girl could dream about. My bridesmaids and I had the best time there the night before, and everyone had a comfortable, stylish room to sleep in! We felt so exclusive. We maybe had 150 guests max, more likely 120, but the venue was just the right size to me…not too full but cozy, which was what we wanted. Everyone of our guests kept saying how beautiful the property is, and how picturesque it was! The ceremony was outside, as well as cocktail hour and it flowed to the barn for dinner and dancing. If natural beauty and serenity are of upmost importance to you, THIS IS YOUR VENUE! Do not wait to book…this is a hidden treasure for now but the word will get out soon!”  Nicole Hooten, Bride, Oct. 3, 2017

The ceremony was elegant and beautiful, featuring the bride and groom standing under the elegant arch draped with curtainsLadies and gentlemen, this location is simply divine!  I was in the wedding business and a venue like this with great people to work with is HARD to come by.  Jen, the owner is fabulous to work with and I always looked forward to meeting with her.  Her and her husband are true visionaries with their venue.  It’s their calling, and it shows.  The venue is intimate.  The perfect balance of modern and country, fused together to create an unpredictable, stunning space.

My husband and I couldn’t imagine getting married anywhere else.  I highly recommend all brides check them out!”  Ashley Wenth, Bride, May 21, 2017

Since this wedding was an international affair (groom’s family traveling from outside the U.S.), The Forge was the perfect neutral place for both sides of family to make introductions for the first time!  

The beauty and serentiy of the land is unsurpassed and the scenery for the wedding was breathtaking.  The reception/ceremony sites and cabin offered a canvas on which the newlyweds could paint their dream wedding.

The heartbeat of this venue is Jen and Clint.  Their willingness and attention to detail made the wedding night a truly spectacular affair!” Derek Wenth, DJ, May 21, 2017

The Forge was intentionally crafted to provide a chic and modern destination for your special event.  Located on beautiful acreage, the site also offers a spectacular cabin to host guests.  It is perfect for parties and family gatherings leading up to your big event.  The staff are incredibly accommodating and attentive to the needs of their clients.  Cannot recommend The Forge enough!!”  Jessica, Guest, May 21, 2017

This was the perfect wedding venue for my husband and I. It’s a rustic setting in the woods with a large beautiful cabin on the property and we made a weekend of it! Bachelorette party Friday night, hanging out with family and friends all day Saturday, on-site rehearsal dinner Saturday night with group fire pit and s’mores afterwards, and a beautiful New Year’s Eve wedding Sunday! Jennifer was very flexible to work with us to create the style wedding we wanted. There is seriously no other venue like theirs in the whole north Texas region. We couldn’t have been happier.”  Susanna & Dan, Dec. 31. 2017

The wedding held at The Forge was amazing. They handled every detail flawlessly, especially for their first wedding. I’ve never seen venue owners work so hard and serve their clients as much as them.  When the ball was dropped by other vendors, they were there to pick it up without  a hitch.  The property is like no other venue I’ve seen before. The beauty of the land really created an “experience” and not just a “wedding”. I highly recommend checking them out.” Saterra Schipper, Lighthouse Photographer, May 21, 2017

The Forge is an absolutely amazing wedding venue!  My daughter got married there recently, and the entire wedding and reception was truly beautiful!  The owners, Jen and Clint, were sooo wonderful and caring from beginning to end … and Jen is such an incredible event coordinator, too!  I highly recommend this venue, and if you are looking for an outdoor venue that also has a large gorgeous cabin on the grounds, this is it.  My daughter and her bridesmaids stayed there the night before the wedding and absolutely loved it! 

Note:  Jen also helped us throw the rehearsal dinner onsite under the garden lights, and I can’t say enough about how beautiful it was … and again, Jen went waaay above and beyond to make sure every detail went perfectly!  We will be forever grateful to Jen & Clint for making our daughter’s dreams come true on her special day!” Lori B.  Mother of the Bride
