Carlee Farm was a dream come true. Gena and John (the owners of Carlee Farm), are incredible people.Sent on 05/12/2018
First let's talk about the venue - it's AMAZING! It's very spacious, there are different options for the ceremony site, and in case it rains there is a great backup plan that doesn't mess up your reception. Gena offers the tables, chairs, even a lot of the decorations. I spent less than $100 on decorations because they had everything I needed for a rustic barn themed wedding.
I bothered Gena SO much and she put up with me like a champ. She was always incredibly responsive, never seemed annoyed, and always helpful. I was able to go to the venue on multiple occasions when other weddings were being set up so I could get an idea of what I liked and what I wanted to do for my wedding.
The week of Gena checked in with me daily to make sure I was doing okay and didn't need anything. Two days before the wedding I happened to walk into Walmart and they were advertising Cindo De May (My wedding was on May 5th), and they had these awesome Mexican Cut Outs where people could take their pictures in the face area. I went to two WalMarts and neither one of them would let me have them. I posted on Facebook and within 24 hours Gena found someone who was willing to give it to us for our wedding day. She's magical!
At the wedding she kept everything clean and orderly, and handled the drunken people the right way. Unfortunately some things happened at the end were two people were left at the Venue and John volunteered to take them back to the hotel so they didn't have to wait any longer. They are a power couple!
Carlee Farm is a little outside of Raleigh, but it's the perfect barn for your wedding, and you get that southern hospitality that North Carolina is known for. They are the best!
