    An unforgettable night

    I had my wedding at Carnivale this past weekend and it was incredible. Our guests had a great time and can’t stop taking about the food, decor, and the service, everything was top notch. Doug was wonderful to work with and he took care of every request I had and made it a great experience!

I can say nothing but good things about Carnivale and their entire team. Not only is the location spectacular to photograph, but the staff really takes the time to make sure their clients are 100% happy. I look forward to working with Carnivale again!
