Amazing Venue/ Awesome Staff

I cannot express how happy both me and my husband are with our decision to use the Carl House as our venue. From the moment we saw the place we just knew this is where we wanted to get married. Aside from the beauty of the Carl House, the staff was so amazing and helped me every step of the way. Nicole you were a lifesaver on the day of the wedding! Nicole had helped me with everything I was worried about on the big day. She had made it were our wedding turned out so perfect and easy going, I could not have asked for anything more or for anything to have gone differently. I want to also thank Lindy she went above and beyond with the flowers and decor, you can tell she puts all her effort into each piece that she makes. I was so appreciative with how truly beautiful everything was and how all the colors of the flowers worked so perfect with the color of the bridal parties dresses. Also, the buffet was an awesome way to go with the package we chose, all of the food was absolutely delicious! I cannot recommend the Carl House enough to any new engaged couples who are looking for a venue. Thank you again to everyone that was there and had helped make our wedding beautiful!

Best Wedding Experience Ever

Let me just say my experience with Carl House from start to finish was just AMAZING. I love how the Carl House does the Carl House Experience (CHE) for we could try different foods on the menu and meet a variety of wonderful vendors. During the CHE process my husband and I selected our menu and we got amazing review from all of our guest. A lot people found out they actually like Brussel sprouts. Here it is 2 months from the day of my wedding I am still craving the delicious food which says a lot about. Also, from the CHE, I was able to choose a make up artist, DJ, Car rental company, wedding cake person and lastly my flowers where amazingly arranged by the in-house florist. The one thing I love about the Carl House is that you get a lot for your money and you will not be disappointed. My day of coordinator Nicole was a God sent. Even through all the crazy and my indecisive self, she always provided me with truth on what works best for their venue, she also had everyone a schedule that flowed very well. Nicole made sure my husband and I were able to eat and were not disturbed for we can enjoy our first meal together, she also made sure I did not ruin my dress with food and provided me a long napkin to keep my dress clean. The in-house Florist Lindy was amazing. The talent she has is beyond measure. She will give you options for your budget and help you picture what you want then create it and exceed all my expectations. I have never seen such beautiful flower arrangements in my life. Overall between the access to great vendors, amazing food, excellent organization with the wedding process, and the amazing florist and flowers you can never go wrong with this venue. The bar was also amazing the champagne is amazing. Again Thank you Carl House ( Nicole, David, Kathy and the whole Carl House family)

Amazing Venue!!

I cannot say enough good things about The Carl House. From the moment we started talking to them, they were incredible. Kim was amazing with her responsiveness and showing us around the grounds. She was patient with us while we toured and with all the questions we had when we were going through the contract. And then Lindy, their in house florist, was wonderful! Lindy was so patient with us - we emailed her A LOT! And oh my gosh- did she deliver!!! She did such a beautiful job on the wedding day. She offered different price rates for each item, and they were all reasonable. And even if we chose a cheaper option, it didn't feel like it. The vision I had - she made it even better and brough it to life. And Nicole - the wedding coordinator - is awesome. She helped us make decisions, she's direct and she is with you all through the wedding day. Nicole was so wonderful helping us and helping pack up things for the end of the night. Nicole helped our night to go smoohtly and I am so grateful to her. The entire staff was amazing and Megan served us during cocktail hour while we finished photos. Our wedding was the perfect day because of The Carl House - they made the whole process stress free. They are reasonably priced for what they offer. Book The Carl House!! You won't regret it.

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.
