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!Sent on 09/08/2020

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.Sent on 10/12/2019

Even Covid couldn't keep Carl House Down
Carl House was phenomenal! It is absolutely beautiful and their staff is incredibly competent. I am so so grateful to Nicole and Debbie for helping us through the process of contracting and especially on the big day. We had several cancellations due to the Corona outbreak but Nicole was a champ and helped me re-coordinate our entire seating chart on the day of all the while wrangling groomsmen and vendors. I would absolutely return for any event.Sent on 03/20/2020

If you are looking for that Southern Home wedding this is the place. Great area for the ceremony behind the main house! Wonderful staff and the food is amazing!
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!
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.
