A dream come true!
Carolina trace was everything we dreamed of and more for our wedding day! It’s beautiful, well priced, and all inclusive! Ellen was so great to work with! She listened to everything we wanted and was always so quick to respond to all of our emails. Everyone is still raving about how delicious the food was. (Order the Parmesan risotto-you won’t regret it!) The presentation of everything was stunning and everything we asked for. I would recommend this venue to anyone getting married! Thank you Ellen and to Carolina Trace for making our dream wedding a reality!!!Sent on 11/21/2020

Wonderful memories of a very special day.
Ellen was a joy to work with and helped plan a lovely sit-down luncheon to celebrate our 60th wedding anniversary. Social distancing was strictly observed by the way the tables were set in the Heartstone Room. We even had 2 tables on the outside patio, complete with linen tableclothes and napkins. We had many compliments on the meal as well as the 2 young ladies that served us. The price for everything was more than fair, and Ellen was there the entire time to oversee things. She even made sure that the walls of the outside patio were freshly washed. It was truly a very special day with many wonderful memories.Sent on 09/11/2020

Beautiful and so much fun!
Carolina Trace was a beautiful venue to have our wedding last weekend. Ellen and her team did a phenomenal job! Ellen was very professional, responsive, flexible, and accommodating to all of our needs to make our day extra special. The food was amazing and being able to taste it before hand was definitely a great perk. We had severe thunderstorms, tornado warnings, and hail during our ceremony which prevented it from being outside but having the flexibility to be indoors was awesome. It turned out beautiful anyway! If you need a wedding venue then definitely look into Carolina Trace!Sent on 04/04/2021

Carolina Trace Country Club is a beautiful venue and location for weddings! I came as an on-site makeup artist for a bridal party. The locker room had everything I needed to set up my station and accommodate everyone. I hope to be asked to come back one day!
