    The perfect venue

    My husband and I really love this venue. It's beautiful and has it's own charm without us having to do anything to the space. We added our touch through the centerpieces and incorporated our colors through the linens. Jeff and Tiffany at Jeff Thomas Catering were wonderful to work with and they coordinated well with our wedding planner. The food was delicious and everything went off without a hitch. We're so grateful that we picked the Carnegie!

    We loved this venue. We chose it because it was beautiful, unique, and historic. We appreciated that it was a venue where it would just be our wedding onsite - no running into guests from another wedding in the bathroom, etc. The venue comes with Jeff Thomas Catering. We did both the ceremony and reception here and the staff took care of the room-flip and made everything look great. The lighting in this place is fantastic! The food was wonderful and we got many compliments on it and the attentive staff. They accommodate many dietary restrictions if necessary, which made things so much easier for us and our guests. They provide the tables, chairs, china and linens, and even have a multitude of items to borrow for decorations, flowers, etc. We did have to bring in our own sound system.

    Jeff Thomas coordinates the events. He was wonderful to work with through the whole process. We planned our wedding in just over 4 months so I was anxious about certain things from the start, but Jeff put a lot of those anxieties to rest and was very helpful from the moment we first met at our venue viewing. He was easy to reach when needed and responsive to emails and texts.

    There were a couple of snafus that we ran into on wedding day. The staff had to come ask us some questions we had already answered prior, and at the end of the night, for clean up, the staff didn't seem to know what things were theirs and what weren't, and whether tired or frustrated, some of the staff seemed to have an attitude when asked about things that were ours that disappeared. I have a feeling this was probably a fluke though. I also didn't realize Jeff would not be onsite for the event until it was happening and he wasn't there, so we wish there was just a little better communication to the staff on those things.

    Overall it was a great experience and we would recommend The Carnegie and Jeff Thomas Catering.
