    Perfect Affairs

    This year I booked 2 events at The Carltun. One of the things I was looking for was an outside area as I wasn't sure how the situation with Covid would be. I booked the outside Patio for my daughter's Bridal Shower Brunch in April and for her and her husband's Post Wedding Day Lunch in May. I was very pleased as to how both events turned out. For the most part I dealt with Adam, the Catering Director. He was always cordial, attentive and answered any questions or concerns I may have had, At times I also spoke with Raphaella, Banquet Sales Manager, who was also very informative, pleasant and helpful. For both events I received many compliments on the food and the venue from the guests. We lucked out with beautiful weather for both days and it was so nice sitting outdoors overlooking the grounds. It was great food, great service and atmosphere. I am grateful to them for making both days special for my daughter, her husband, family and friends!

    Classic, elegant, FUN wedding!!

    We just had a our wedding there last weekend and people cannot stop talking about it. Our wedding was postponed from from April 2020 to May 2021 and Adam at the Carltun could not have been better to work with. So understanding throughout the whole process and we knew he had everything under control. He was honest to us from the start and helped us so much along the process. Given the current covid situation, they handled everything perfectly and everyone was so comfortable. The food was delicious, just as amazing as our tasting. The drinks were flowing, the service was great. They had heaters outside for cocktail hour since it was an unusually cold day for May. The covered patio and outdoor space was something that we really wanted. My husband loved that there was the room with the bar attached so it gave people that weren't dancing an option. It is honestly so beautiful inside the ballroom and on the grounds which makes pictures so easy (you don't need to go to an additional facility after your ceremony) and the ballroom is beautiful, just add flowers and you are set! For a classic, elegant wedding this is the place to be!
