About Black Iris Estate

Thomas Caterers of Distinction is very excited to announce that soon we will be the proud new owners of the Beautiful Oak Hill Mansion and its surrounding property. Our reputation for special event venue design and management has become respected all over the country and we are especially excited that this historic building has become the next member of our family. Our goal is to create a stunning event atmosphere for wedding receptions, corporate events and all types of special occasions. Black Iris Estate will be like nothing else in the city of Carmel or the surrounding area.

Oak Hill Mansion will be closing for renovations January 2016 - April 2016 and we are strongly aiming for Black Iris Estate to reopen early May 2016.

    The mansion and grounds have been completely transformed and updated. We booked at the start of their renovation and were absolutely impressed with the results. The outdoor wedding site behind the mansion is one of the most beautiful outdoor venues I have ever seen...our photos are spectacular. With the flexibility of moving the wedding into the ballroom for inclement weather....it was a no brainer. The ballroom is stunning and the other rooms are beautiful. I would say you have to see it to believe it. This review was from the mother of the bride.

    Horrible experience with Thomas Caterers of Distinction at Black Iris Estate. We were sold an experience and level of service that was never delivered. First, let's begin with the sales pitch. During the sales pitch, they only used a tablet and never gave us any written sales documents. Now I see why - because it was all smoke and mirrors to get your money. We were told that a "wedding planner" would walk us through every step of the process and even their own website (on the home page) reads: "Planning
    Enjoy a Positive planning experience with our team of professionals who will guide you through every step". First, we booked in October and plan to wed on September 15th. After taking our deposit, we never heard from a "planner" or "Even Designer" as they call it for the rest of the year. We had to reach out to them on December 27th and ask to be contacted. The "event designer" emailed back the next day asking when we would like to meet in APRIL. By her own admission in a subsequent email on January 28th, the first "design" meeting should happen six months prior, yet she was trying to schedule us in April - 5 months out. Her email read: "Design & Planning (6 months prior) Lets Dive in! At this first meeting held at our corporate office 4440 N Keystone Ave; we will discuss floorplan, linens, timeline & vendors. It is a best practice to have a conversation at least 2 weeks prior to this meeting to discuss wedding colors, theme, etc. so I can have sample linens and décor options ordered in to show you." This "conversation" two weeks prior never took place either. When I confronted the owner Vince Early about our issues and dissatisfaction, he flatly refused to refund our $4000 deposit on a wedding that was going to cost at a minimum $34,781.89, but in all reality would have cost over $40,000 because our guest list exceeded their minimum of 135. We simply wanted a refund and it didn't happen. Take your hard earned money elsewhere. They do not deliver as promised.
