    Had the most amazing time at the Carolina Inn! To start with the front desk staff who were so helpful - Nils and his team know how to run that front desk- providing first class service. The reception with stations were truly amazing, food was delicious and the station attendants were so friendly. The bartenders did fantastic job of keeping the drinks flowing. Post wedding breakfast ran 1.5 hours over, but they never made a comment and made sure we were taken care of!!! Charmain was the best to work with- she really cares about what she is doing!!

    The Carolina Inn is such a fantastic venue. It has a truly unique vintage character in-line with its 1920's heritage. As a photographer, I can definitely recommend the Inn as a fantastic venue if photography is important to you. Aside from that, the planning staff are always so detail-oriented and personable and the food and service is top-notch across the board. Definitely one of my favourite places to shoot weddings in and I can't recommend it highly enough!
