Overall we had a great experience with the Carlisle for our September 2018 wedding. Nikki was a great coordinator to work with. She was extremely prompt in communicating with us and always answered our emails or phone calls quickly. During the planning process she always contacted us when we had to make decisions or update her on things and gave us more than enough time to make decisions and give her information. We could tell that what we wanted was her first priority. Even when I made the decision to change our chairs a month before, she was happy to do it for us and gave us no grief about it. I was often fickle with some of my decisions, and she was always there to help me. The one thing I wish we had been made aware of more was the different options we could have had for the room, such as curtains or other drapery throughout the room. I brought these up after seeing pictures on the website or other weddings I've seen there, but they were never brought to our attention originally. Because of the extra cost of these we didn't end up using them, but it still would have been nice to be given all options as to how the room could be decorated. Even so, Nikki and the rest of the staff helped to make the room look absolutely beautiful the day of our wedding.Sent on 10/05/2018
The week before our wedding, we brought in all of our items for the room and wedding for the staff to organize and set up in the room. This was extremely beneficial for us and it was a huge time saver. We had our table numbers, place cards, guest book, card box, etc. all packed up and ready for them, along with directions of where everything needed to go. The fact that we did not have to come in the day before to set this all up was awesome. Some banquet halls will require you to set this all up on your own ahead of time. We loved this aspect of the Carlisle.
The food was delicious and we got endless comments from our guests about how delicious every course of the meal was, especially the steak.

Our wedding reception was a dream! People haven’t stopped talking about how the food was beyond delicious. Our family from New York City said it was the best filet mignon they've ever had and the seafood buffet and pasta and lamb carving stations were amazing. The dessert tables looked gorgeous! The entire place was magical. Most importantly, the wedding coordinator and everyone else at the Carlisle involved in making our night perfect, were the BEST and nicest people to work with!!Sent on 11/18/2017
