Whimsical Weddings with The Good Fork

"We should look for someone to eat and drink with before looking for something to eat and drink."


If you have clicked around the internet and have arrived here it is because you want to keep it simple and impress your family and friends with a local, sustainable meal. When it comes to planning a wedding in tune with what the bride is looking for, Chef Mary knows exactly what to offer. Just some of her creative ideas are:

    Having a popcorn bar complete with organic dried herbs and spices.
Entertaining your guests with games during cocktail hour.
Having local fruit pies paired with semifreddo served in Ball jars instead of cake.
Use Verterra platters for a beautiful and eco-friendly look.
Alternative seating such as haybales with flannel blankets.

We have done receptions in private homes and with some of the most beautiful, spacious venues in Akron, Cleveland, Canton and Hartville such as:

Brookside Farms - Patterson Fruit Farm - Vermillion Historical Center - Quailcrest Farm - Mohican Grand Barn - 78th Street Studios - Ariel International Center

We even offer in-home tasting dinners for the bride and groom along with his and her parents.

When you choose The Good Fork, you can savor the moment and focus on the most important part of the event - your marriage. We look forward to working with you to create a whimsical, locally focused wedding reception that your family and friends won't soon forget!
