    We actually had an event last June but I wanted to get this done. My son had a out of town wedding and we wanted to have some type of event for the family and friends around here to celebrate their marriage. I can't say enough about this venue. Siobhan was fantastic to work with and everything went smoothly. She did everything possible to make the day special and have everything exactly the way we planned it.

    Things I really appreciated about the Carle staff: willingness to help assure I could use a kosher caterer who was not previously approved which required a lot of back and forth on their part, quick responses via email or phone when I had questions or concerns, early access to the place to set up for the reception and use of the place later than any other venue we looked at. It's a gorgeous and unique setting which made for lots of fun and great pictures and it was affordable. Perfect!
