    Wedding Venue

    Since the day we stepped foot into the Carriage house I knew we would be getting married there. We had a long planning time frame and the Carriage house's employees answered all my crazy questions two years out from our NYE wedding date. Leading up to the big day they did everything they could to make sure our big day was amazing and ran smoothly. The day of the wedding was anything short from amazing and could not have gone any better. Our guested loved everything about it and still talk about the food and the venue itself. 5 stars does not even begin to describe The Carriage House!!!

    Best in the Biz - Trust them

    I cannot write this review without happy tears. Warning, this review is a long one... Kristin, Megan and the staff went beyond my wildest dreams and delivered a dream wedding. They worked tirelessly behind the scenes. They are the best in the region for a reason! Their professionalism, ability to work with a budget (and respect it), being so pleasant with highly stressed brides and family - I cannot emphasize enough how easy and calm they made the whole process from start to finish. All of my guests are still raving about the quality, diversity, and amount of food served. The venue was meticulously clean and shining. The bridal captains and attendants were friendly, competent and wonderful. I would formulate a hint of a thought of needing something - and it was already in front of me. Kristin and Megan are true professionals and truly sincere human beings who listen to you. They have done it all and give great advice if you listen or ask. Kristin and Megan are super responsive via email - which always reassured me. They are adaptable and handle every hiccup or change in direction like champs. I cannot praise Kristin and Megan enough. You need to trust them with your wedding! The event ran on time thanks to their planning and advice. The Carriage House proved to me why it’s consistently the best through every interaction, with every person. Trust them with your wedding and you won’t be disappointed!

    Bright, airy, spacious, and beautiful are just some of the ways I would describe the photographic settings at The Carriage House. The hospitality of the staff and management is always first rate - I always feel welcome and at home! I have photographed dozens and dozens of events at The Carriage House and the venue never fails to provide me with ample opportunities to get creative in capturing more and more unique photographs of and for my couples. Whenever The Carriage House appears on my schedule for a weekend, I am assured of a smooth day full of wonderful photographs - it becomes an effortless evening! I always look forward to being there!

  • Kenny i Entertainment Wedding DJs

    The Kenny i Entertainment Company has had multiple acts perform at the Carriage House for many years. The unique element that The Carriage House brings to the Southern NJ marketplace is their consistency with their level of product excellence. It's not just about the quality of the food, the ambiance, the "classy" look of the facility, the communication before and during the event, but it's that they do it ALL at an extremely high level of proficiency, which is rare in our market (as well as the entire Tri-State area we entertain in). I give The Carriage House my full backing and confidence knowing that your event will be a success and you will be thrilled with their service from the first point of contact through the end of your event. Bravo Carriage House!
