My new husband and I just had our wedding at the Carlisle on Friday, and we could not be happier with our experience. From the beginning of our search process, the staff at the Carlisle (primarily Stephanie and Maureen) were kind, helpful, and timely in getting back to me. From the time we booked them, I must have sent Stephanie close to 50 emails with all sorts of questions, and she was always kind and incredibly thorough with her responses. Another great thing about the Carlisle is that they were extremely flexible and generous with the contract. There were some aspects of different packages that we loved, some that we didn't love, but Stephanie and Maureen worked with us to be sure that the package we decided on (from the appetizers to the food to the liquor to the chair covers) was exactly perfect for our vision. As the wedding date got closer, and with SO many other things to worry about the day of, I knew that the reception hall was in good hands. We had a very large wedding (250+ people), so we had two of the three rooms, and it looked absolutely stunning. Even though I wasn't there to actually set everything up, the Carlisle staff took care of everything, and when we walked in the doors, EVERYTHING was executed exactly as we wanted it to be (things like our place cards, card table, grandparents' photo table, table numbers, favors, etc). As the night went on, the whole staff was attentive to our needs. The bartenders (we had two bars set up because of the size of the wedding) were fabulous, and many of our friends told us how generous they were with the drinks they were making. The biggest and most common compliment we got throughout the night was how delicious the food was. It was SO GOOD. We had the minestrone soup, Carlisle salad, chicken, steak, garlic mashed potatoes, green beans with red peppers, and hot fudge sundaes, and all of the guests were raving about everything. The night was everything we hoped it'd be and more. Thanks, Carlisle!!
