    Amazing venue

    The Carl House was everything I dreamed of and more. When we first started looking, I had never even heard of The Carl House. I saw some pictures online and decided to check it out. When we got there, we both fell in love. We loved how simple The Carl House made it. Everything was laid out right in front of us. The only thing we needed to worry about was photography, videography, cake and the DJ.

    Nicole was also AMAZING. She made sure all of my questions were answered and helped everything go so smooth. My bridesmaids and groomsman especially loved her ability to always keep a drink in their hands whether before the ceremony or during pictures. I could not imagine our big day with out her!

    Finally, Lindy, the in house florist was amazing as well. I brought in a lot of my own decorations but she helped with florals and making sure my vision came to life.

    If you're looking for a venue, I highly recommend The Carl House.

    A Bride's Dream

    When I began looking for a wedding venue, I saw what felt like every type of venue possible before my visit to the Carl House, yet when my mother and I pulled into the driveway the first time, I immediately knew The Carl House was the one. One of the best things about the Carl House is that so much of the major things you need - catering, florist, day-of coordinator, décor - are built into the package cost. As an out of town bride (I live in DC and got married in GA), that aspect of Carl House was a life saver. Everything was phenomenal. The food was good, the flowers and décor were beautiful and exactly what I wanted (thank you, Lindy!), and it was all packaged perfectly into the naturally beautiful, southern estate home feel I so desired. Carl House management has thought of everything a bride and groom might desire for their wedding, including two fun photo booths (highly recommend!) and elegantly decorated respective bride and groom suites for getting ready/dressed. The staff was amazing also. Before the ceremony began, the staff took the beverage orders of the wedding party/family and had drinks ready and waiting for us after the ceremony and then passed hors d'oeuvres to us while we took pictures during cocktail hour so we didn't have to miss a moment of our day and all that we planned for. It was truly the perfect touch of added service that puts Carl House above other venues. To top it all off, Nicole, the day-of coordinator, is excellent at her job and helped keep the entire day and evening flowing smoothly. I was SO glad to have her overseeing the entire event because it took a huge weight off my and my family's shoulders knowing we had someone we could trust. I could not be happier with having selected the Carl House as my wedding venue and highly recommend their services.

    DJ TOD / Peavy Entertainment Wedding DJs

    Over the last two years I have worked at least 25 weddings at Carl House. They are so good of taking care of Brides and Grooms and every person on your guest list. Monika is the one you will speak with when you call or visit and she will help you plan and build your wedding just the way you have always dreamed it would be. Then Kelsey takes over and implements all of your wedding days plans with such a warm and friendly personality that any and all of your weeding day stress will disappear as soon as you are greeted at the door. The food is delicious and the staff will meet or exceed all of your expectations. Carl House is by far one of my favorite venues to work due entirely to their level of service provided to Brides and Grooms on from the first visit to the grand departure of your wedding reception.
