Grand Garden WeddingReviewed on 11/07/2011 danielle l
After canceling with another wedding venue (large casino), for lack of communication and help, we booked with Always and Forever. We choose the the Grand Garden Garden Love pkg.. from the beginning our planner stayed in contact, arrainged extra flowers, and was extremely helpful, given the short notice of our wedding date. The wedding was beautiful, the site romantic, and was all the photos on their site appear. I will always and forever look back on that evening as our most precious moment.

Wow, what a wonderful wedding we had at the Always and Forever Wedding Chapel. They were very attentive. They kept myself and the groom seperated until the wedding ceramony. The flowers and the photography as well as the video and live feed were amazing.

The bridal room was pretty. I could sneak a peek at the guests walking by. The garden was beautiful. The minister was hilarious and kept up with our (bride/groom) jokes. The photographer got basic shots, though I think my relatives got some more of the dramatic shots.
Ceremony and Reception All-inclusiveReviewed on 11/30/2013 Tanya N
I loved that it was all-inclusive because I live out of town but I wish I could have had more hands on planning and personal visuals of things instead of pics. The flowers were not that purple or fresh. I wish I had picked all songs played by DJ instead of traditional songs because the dinner music was boring. It was cold at night on deck for reception dinner and they didn't offer or suggest using these until my father-in-law asked for them which was an additional price. They skipped the blessing for dinner. It just was so rushed and felt a little chaotic but overall it was nice. I think they need to add an additional hour to every package for the reception.
Affordable and easy weddingReviewed on 5/04/2013 Amanda R
Overall, I really enjoyed having my wedding at Always & Forever. They had affordable packages to choose from that included everything from the bouquet, the limo, photographer, etc. so you just have to pick out which options you want and they do the whole thing for you. Also, their lakeside location was GORGEOUS and the pictures came out beautiful. My only issue is the price of ordering prints of your wedding photos. They gave a $50 credit with my package towards ordering prints, but the cheapest option was $400. You can get prints done much cheaper at walgreens or office max. But I would still definitely recommend them!
Happy Bride = Happy DayReviewed on 6/26/2012 Amanda D
While I did have some frustrating moments like difficulty in actually speaking to someone or waiting for my photos, this was a great venue and worth it. I chose this site unseen as I live in Connecticut. I chose the all inclusive on the Lakes at the Gazebo. I was nervous when the limo pulled up because it looked like a strip mall but once I got into the place and saw the actual place we would be married I was pleasantly surprised. They treated me like their only client and made me feel at ease. It was a day I will never forget and am glad I chose them for my venue.

This venue offers many different locations and packages. I ended up getting the Lakeside Garden location with the Lakeside Devotion package. The reason I chose this is because they offered, at the time, full rights to a set number of photos. With the package I bought I got 36 Poses On High Quality Digital Format CD, and a DVD of the ceremony. It also included a limo ride to and from, flowers for bride and groom, chairs and music. I did also add on some flower corsages for all the moms. The flowers were stunning. I told them that I didn't want my groom to see me before the wedding and they were able to keep us apart until the ceremony started. The officiant was really nice and had some beautiful words to say. I did opt for a second photographer to get pictures of us during and after the wedding through the reception, you may want to do the same. Overall, I had a great experience. Oh, one more thing. The venue, at least Lakeside Garden, is located in a kind of strip mall. It's all the way on the end, but it's slightly misleading. However, once you are inside, it is really beautiful!!

I used the outside venue this vendor provided at Lakeside and it was great. The girls at Always and Forever were great the entire time I was planning my wedding any question or concern I had it was taken care of
Outdoor summer weddingReviewed on 6/23/2011 Hayley S
Planning was a snap and the wedding was great. Quick but not too fast where you felt rushed. The photographer did an excellent job and the minister said some very beautiful words and even managed to insert a very cute joke in the ceremony. The sunset background went right along with the lakeside and garden view. HOWEVER.... After the wedding was another story. I paid an extra fee for a rush on my picture cd, which I finally received 13 days after I placed my order. I don't feel this was the "rush" order I paid extra for. When I did receive the CD, it was BLANK. I had to call these people for the millionth time and ask for them to overnight me another CD that actually had pictures, which they did agree to do and the next CD was correct. I never once received an apology for the inconvenience or a follow up call to make sure the mistake was corrected. Summary: Beautiful place for the money and great service before you pay, but don't expect much help after you're crossed off their list.

The people from the Chapel is very helpful and very informative. They had given our Wedding a lovely and calming scenery. I recommend the Wedding Chapel to whoever want to get married. This is the place to get married and staff are very friendly.

Review for Always & Forever Wedding Chapel and Destination WeddingsReviewed on 5/10/2010 Jennifer S
Our reception was at a restaurant. We were given a private room in the back of the restaurant with beautiful french doors that we could close for privacy. Also we had our own lighting and music controls. The ambiance was wonderful and the staff was so attentive. The food was exquisite and surprisingly affordable.
