    Perfect wedding

    This venue was such a dream! Everyone was so amazing and kind! The biggest thing we looked for when visiting venues was to to be treated like people and not like a sale. That is exactly what we got with The Carl House! It started with Kim. Absolutely delight to work with and was so flexible especially since we only were having the reception there. Then we worked with Nicole as the wedding coordinator and let me tell you, she will fight for you. Their goal there is to make sure you have the day you want and they will do everything they can to make that happen! Also the food there is amazing! 12/10 would recommend! Every person I worked with made sure that we would have the day we wanted and not have to worry about a single thing. I was highly impressed and if you鈥檙e looking you need to go check them out.

    Dream Wedding Venue!

    I knew I wanted this place when I first laid eyes on the staircase in the ballroom and the rest of the house had me falling head over heels too! Everything about it was so perfect, and the service was amazing as well! Indira was so kind and knew just what to do to keep the day of in line!

    Amazing - covid and all

    The Carl House and staff was an absolute dream to work with. My husband and I fell in love with the venue the moment we saw it. Nicole, the in house planner, made my every vision come true. I was able to be completely hands off during my big day and she took care of everything. If anything went wrong, I didn't know about it. She always made sure myself and the wedding party had drinks in hand. This was especially appreciated after the ceremony and before pictures. She handled the coordination with my outside vendors (which was only photography, DJ, and officiant - Carl House has in house staff for just about everything else). The food was exquisite. I was an absolute mess planning my wedding amidst Covid but Nicole and the team made me feel completely at ease. My day was absolutely perfect! The only thing I would have changed was adding extra time to my reception!

I've delivered many cakes to Carl House and it's always been a pleasure! The staff and management are always friendly and professional! I've also had several friends get married in this venue and it's always been nothing short of amazing!

DJ TOD / Peavy Entertainment 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.
