I couldn't have better things to say about working with Nicole Benson and her team at the Carl House. Throughout the planning process, Nicole was attentive, organized and resourceful. Nicole helped to alleviate any additional stress leading up to the wedding by providing helpful tips and resources that kept me and my husband on track for our big day. She took the reigns on our rehearsal day and made sure all of our attendants (and little ones!) knew exactly what they were doing, and made it fun and enjoyable throughout. On our wedding day, I knew I had absolutely nothing to stress about because Nicole was on it. Every little detail, every step of the way. I couldn't have asked for a better planner, and am so grateful that we picked Nicole to help us throughout our wedding planning. I would recommend Nicole and her team to absolutely anyone!

My husband and I enjoyed our experience working with the Carl House staff. Nicole was assigned to work our wedding and man she was AWESOME! She did not miss a beat and she ALWAYS made herself available to us. Lindy, the in house florist, did our flowers for the wedding and they were so amazing. I was so shocked to see how amazing the flowers looked for the price we paid. Lindy is truly talented and a pleasure to work with. Chef Kelly did the food for the wedding and she did an amazing job as well! Our guest kept talking about how awesome the food was. The owner Ms. BB was also very pleasant and hands on with her business. It was nice to see that the owner cared about her business and wanted to make sure that our experience was pleasant. Overall, the Carl House was a great choice for our wedding venue. The staff truly cares about making your wedding a day to remember and I would recommend the Carl House to anybody looking for a wedding venue in Atlanta. Thank you Carl House for an amazing wedding ! ~The Barrs~

The Carl House is AMAZING!! The staff are very reassuring and catering to what the bride wants and their needs. They are the white nights of your wedding day and ensure that everything you want happens! They are with you from the very beginning to you're farewell on your wedding day!

Having my wedding at the Carl House was the best decision I could've ever made. I'm a very laid back person and I wanted a stress free wedding. That's exactly what I got. Everything was taken care of for me from day one. My menu was perfect, flowers, decorations, I could go on and on about how beautiful our wedding was, from the ceremony to the reception. Nicole was the most amazing person ever. She made sure everything was perfect for me and made sure I was relaxed and calm before the ceremony. She even helped me sit down each time in my dress. I'm so happy with how beautiful our special day was. Thank you so much to the Carl House and Carl House staff!

There really are not enough words to describe how amazing this venue and its staff are! From our very first walkthrough we were treated so warmly and it immediately felt 'right'. The venue is truly one of a kind and must be seen to truly appreciate it. Really pictures don't do it justice! Nicole was our wedding coordinator and she is just BEYOND!!! On the big day she was there every step of the way, making sure that every detail was carried out to the fullest. It would not have been the amazing day it was without her. We received so many compliments from guest saying how beautiful the wedding was and I was so pleased by the amount of guests who commented that it was one of the best weddings they had ever attended! Honestly all of this praise goes to Nicole, BB, and the rest of the Carl House staff! If you choose this venue you will not be disappointed. The food is incredible, the venue is one of a kind, and the pricing is absolutely affordable!

We had our wedding at Carl House on April 2nd, 2016. It was absolutely amazing! The Carl House was beautifully decorated, and food was amazing!! Nicole was determined to help us have the wedding of our dreams and we did! She went out of her way and i can't express how much I appreciate it! The staff was also so warm and inviting. They went above and beyond to make sure every detail was perfect. I still have friends and family telling us just how beautiful everything was during the ceremony and reception. Thank you very much Carl House!

My husband and I got married on October 3, 2015 and I may be biased but our wedding was perfect! Nicole at the Carl House was incredible, she made sure the entire night ran smoothly without anyone being stressed or behind schedule! The entire staff made sure everyone had what they needed. The food, setup, decorations, and everything went smoothly. We ended up having an indoor wedding due to the rain and it was better than we could've imagined!

Once we laid eyes on Carl House, my husband and I knew immediately that this was the perfect venue to hold our intimate, classic vintage themed wedding! Not only were the grounds and venue beautiful, the Carl House staff were an ABSOLUTE pleasure to work with as we planned our special day. Through the entire planning process and the day of, they were very responsive, thorough, accommodating, professional, AND patient (with all of our questions). As a result, we felt very confident in Carl House's ability to deliver. From the beautifully executed florals by Lindy to the stellar wedding coordination by Nicole, our wedding day was magical and far exceeded our expectations. And the magic did not stop there...the in house catering by Carl House was also exceptional! Kudos to Carl House, especially Nicole and Lindy!

This venue was the perfect wedding venue. Almost everything is done in house (florals, food, basic decor) at a good price, making everything simple and stress free. The staff is friendly and professional and they have a solution to any issue that might come up! They keep the day moving, while allowing you to fully experience your big day without any hassle. LOVED IT, wouldn't have done anything differently.

I have always heard of the beauty of the Carl House and from the first time I viewed the property I knew I would not be disappointed with appearances on my wedding day. I also was in love with the pictures of the Carl House floral. I was blown away on my wedding day. Lindy, the floral director, was amazing. She did a fantastic job. I could have not asked for anything different. THE STAFF WAS AMAZING. Our wedding director Nicole was so sweet and always on point. She was available whenever I needed her and was a great guide during the entire process. The food was wonderful. The chef will change the flavoring to whatever you would like (spicier, etc.). I truly felt like a princess on my wedding day because the Carl House staff waited on us hand and foot. It was an amazing experience and the Best Day Ever! Cheers to happily ever after!

Leading up to any wedding can be extremely stressful. Making sure all the minor details get taken care of, that all guests get into town safely and are comfortable, etc. There is no doubt that mine definitely was, however, when it came time for the ceremony to start all of that stress seemed to fade away! Nicole did an amazing job attending to my every want and need. The ceremony was beautiful and the reception was out of this world! All of my guests are still raving about the food. The venue is absolutely gorgeous and I am so thankful that we chose the Carl House as our venue for our wedding. We couldn't be happier!

I can NOT begin to say enough WONDERFUL things about Carl House! The venue is beautiful! Being an out of state bride, I was worried about planning and how it would all come together. But once I met Nicole, the head wedding planner, at one of our meetings, I knew that she was going to help us make everything perfect! She made our day so stress free that we were able to enjoy every aspect of our special day! Nicole and her team at Carl House took care of every detail. My mom and I did a lot of DIY things to make our wedding special to me and my husband. Nicole and her team were so flexible in helping us add our special touches to make our wedding personalized. Lindy, head of floral, made all of our flower arrangements, bouquets, and boutonnieres. They added so much beautiful color to our ceremony and reception. All of the staff at Carl House worked flawlessly together and helped my husband and I create our best day ever!

I am so glad that we choose the Carl House as our Reception Venue!! They were really great to work with. Anytime I had a question they would respond quickly with the complete information and were helpful throughout the whole process. They have a very well organized and professional team on hand from the first inquiry to the wedding day. Nicole was a dream to work with as our wedding coordinator. She was helpful with everything and gave us lots of good options to help save money, but still get the most out of everything. She made sure that the groom and I, as well as our families were being taken care of through the whole night. We truly felt special every step of the way. The food was delicious and everyone at the wedding said they loved the place. We wanted a venue with good indoor and outdoor space and this was perfect, with the gorgeous gardens and the pretty plantation style home.

Our experience at the Carl House was spectacular. Everyone was a joy to work with and they made it so easy for my mom and I to plan my special day. Nicole was spectacular and always knew the answer to every question and was more than willing to answer anything I had to ask. Lindy made the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen. The food was spectacular and so was the service on my wedding day. The team is so upbeat & positive. BB (the owner) was even around during my wedding and she was an extreme joy to be around too. I cannot say enough positive things about the place. The grounds are GORGEOUS if you want to take pictures outside and it was very conducive to a large wedding party. My wedding ended up having around 150 guests and it was a perfect fit for the reception. Thank you again to the entire Carl House staff for making my wedding so perfect! I will definitely recommend your venue to future Brides!

Wow! There are no words to describe how thankful I am that we chose the Carl House for our big day! Everything was just PERFECT. The team is great- every single person works together with you to understand your vision, and on that day, they work hard to make sure the only thing you're worried about is marrying your best friend. With two beautiful ceremony spaces and reception space, onsite catering, onsite florists, and in- house wedding coordinators, you can't go wrong with this marvelously elegant venue! This was the first and ONLY venue we visited, because we knew from day one that this would be the best venue ever for our best day ever. Thank you to the Carl House team for all of your help and support! We love you!

We had an April wedding here and it was gorgeous! The rain held off for the ceremony, thankfully. Although, the big reason we chose this place was the inside is equally as beautiful as the outside. Nicole Benson, the wedding coordinator, was awesome to work with and took all my worries away the days leading up to the wedding and the day of. She was always there if I needed her. Lindy did the flowers and they were everything I could have imagined and more. The food was excellent, if you are thinking of the filet station, GET IT! Everyone was professional and engaging. I didn't get to meet her, but my guests raved about how funny the bartender was. If you are deciding between places go with The Carl House, you won't regret it.

I would like to share that our experience with the Carl House was, simply put....AMAZING. My wife and i had been engaged for over a year and during the majority of this time our wedding was booked at a different venue. It so happened that for reasons outside of our control (and a singularly crazy venue owner) we ended up losing this venue only 2 MONTHS before our wedding date! Needless to say, my wife was crushed...we lost a 220 year old plantation home with garden and we did not know what to do. Carl House made our lives SO easy by flying through our booking, being professional and courteous, and allowing us to simply ENJOY our time together! Nicole Benson! WE OWE YOU ONE!

The Carl House was the perfect venue for my wedding! I loved how wonderful the staff was and how many services were provided by the Carl House. I highly recommend using their florist and their caterer offered good variety. The gardens are beautiful for an outdoor wedding, but the rain backup plan to bring the wedding indoors has to be called pretty early in the day, which was challenging. However, the staff did everything they could to accommodate my desire for an outdoor wedding! I wouldn't change a thing!

My husband really didn't want a traditional wedding until I showed him the Carl House. Not only did we get the antique home feel, we got an outstanding wedding coordinator in Nicole, excellent and attentive service staff throughout the day and remarkable catering! The home itself requires little decoration due to its grandeur, elegance and well kept grounds. That's exactly what I wanted- a timeless venue for our timeless day. Nicole was most fantastic in guiding me through decisions and didn't allow me to get too caught up. The sales team was accommodating in moving our rental time earlier in the day because of my concern for traveling guests. On our wedding day, Nicole did an amazing job of handling my outside vendors, getting them all set and keeping me calm through the hiccups (of no fault of the Carl House). Her goal was to make my day all that I dreamed it to be at whatever the effort.

Everything was great � from the venue, to the food, to the service we received. The venue is gorgeous, has outdoor or indoor ceremony space. We did indoor. It has a beautiful mezzanine (I walked down the stairs to the aisle, and we had dinner upstairs with bridal party and close family � very intimate). Our guests raved about the food, everything was delicious! The wedding coordinator was awesome � she was always quick to respond to all of my questions, even near the end, when I was probably a not-so-fun-to-work-with stressed-out Bride (zilla). She was great the day of too � gathering our things from the rooms, which we may have left otherwise. We paid for our entire wedding ourselves, and this venue allowed us the day of our dreams. SO fairly priced for what you get!! To this day, there are friends and family members that tell us our wedding was one of the most beautiful weddings they have attended. I�d highly recommend this venue to anyone!!

I couldn't be more pleased with how my big day went at the Carl House!! From the food, to the service, everything was 100 percent what I wanted. The staff were incredibly thoughtful and were so helpful and made the day run smooth as silk. It was beautiful inside and out! We had an indoor ceremony and it was beautiful and the staff flipped the ballroom in a very reasonable amount of time for the reception. Most of all, I'd like to mention the on site coordinator, Nicole! She was the absolute best part of my experience at the Carl House and made sure everything was just right behind the scenes. I don't know what I would have done without her. I would recommend the Carl House to anyone looking to have their big day there. They are professional, easy to work with, and have a beautiful campus. I loved it!

They were exactly what I was looking for and my wedding was literally perfect!!b Not only was it gorgeous and absolutely lovely, but Nicole, the onsite wedding planner/coordinator was absolutely amazing.. She was amazing and made sure the entire event went smoothly. I accidentally put te ceremony on the invitations for 30 minutes after when it was supposed to start, and found out this was the case the night before the wedding. We texted Nicole immediately and she took care of it. It all worked out wonderfully and my wedding was everything I had hoped it would be.

Choosing Carl House for our reception venue was the best decision I made regarding our event. Due to military circumstances involving deployment, my husband and I were married earlier in the year and had a belated reception/celebration at Carl House. If I had had the option, I would have definitely used Carl House as the ceremony site, as well. Not only is the entire site beautiful, elegant, and charming, but the staff is fantastic as well. Nicole made the entire event run smoothly and made sure every detail of the evening was taken care of. Lindy, the in-house florist, is absolutely amazing as well. Our flowers were more perfect than I could have ever envisioned. The food was also exceptional! Our event was held in December so the house was decorated for Christmas, which was absolutely stunning! I highly recommend using the Carl House for any special event!

The Carl house is an AMAZING & beautiful venue. Pictures do not do it justice. Nicole was super sweet and fun. She took great care of us. She kept all the venders communicating. Everyone loved the food. The staff was great, very responsive. This venue is a tad on the expensive side. I spent about 10 on less than 100 ppl for the food and venue. The only complaint I had was that there was a miscommunication on some of the decorations.

Nicole Benson, our wedding coordinator from the Carl House, was truly one of the most valuable individuals planning our wedding and masterminding the day of activities. She is very detail oriented, takes fantastic notes, and makes each and everyone of her brides feel AMAZING. She even grabbed me to put extra lip gloss on so that I would look great in my photos. Our food was phenomenal!! All of our guests (which included celiac,diabetic, and vegetarians) were impressed by the food.

We had the perfect September wedding at Carl House. Not only is the venue absolutely breathtaking inside and out, but it's actually a very affordable venue. Included in the price is a wedding planner, who meets with you 90 days prior, 3 weeks prior and is with you during the rehearsal and during your entire wedding. The Carl House staff, especially our wedding planner Nicole, were absolutely amazing! They made sure the event ran seamlessly and treated our family and friends with so much kindness and professionalism. I received so many compliments on my wedding - especially the food!

We met with Lindy for our flowers and I can not even begin to describe how beautiful all of my flowers were! I loved them! I gave her a basic idea of what I wanted and she completely blew it out of the water and made the most elegant and beautiful bouquets and arrangements I could have ever dreamed of The food was amazing! The wedding coordinator, Kelsey there are not enough wonderful words to say about her! She is amazing from the first meeting with her to the day of the wedding. She made us feel comfortable during the whole process. The day of the wedding Kelsey was there to make sure everything went smoothly and that we had everything we needed.

The wedding was PERFECT! From the moment we arrived at Carl House to just before walking down the aisle, providing tips for how to cut the cake, how to toss the bouquet, reminding me to breathe, and so much more, Kelsey Boggs couldn't have been a better wedding director. She was always nearby and knew just what to say. Lindy LaMarco from Carl House's in-house floral department is an absolute doll and so full of TALENT. I gave her a basic idea and she knew exactly what to do, exactly what to recommend, and made beautiful creations that I never even could have dreamed of. As for Monika Williams, you can't help but put your complete trust in her from the very beginning. She is such a sweetheart, and really goes above and beyond to help you envision your big day. Carl House is an amazing venue with some amazing people. If you're looking for a beautiful southern venue, I'd highly recommend you at least visit the venue and see what they have to offer.

I think EVERYONE should get married at the Carl House. They seriously made it EASY, which is a word I never thought I would use when it came to wedding planning. But everyone at the Carl House truly did make everything from the wedding planning to the wedding day easy and stress-free. Because of the people at the Carl House, my wedding day was absolutely perfect! I couldn't have asked for anything better! From the quaint details that make the house so unique, to the beautiful flower arrangements and set up for our ceremony, to the amazing food and wait staff, to the flawless direction we got from Kelsey, our Carl House wedding planner, everything went off without a hitch! Kelsey even gave me a bobby pin out of her own hair right before walking down the aisle to make sure I stayed calm and had everything I needed! That was AMAZING!

She even donated her computer when the musician forgot the music and needed to reprint it. The venue was gorgeous and they made sure my vendors were taken care of (even the ones that they hadn't worked with before). BB herself even stopped in to make sure I was taken care of. The rest of the staff was just as helpful. TThe food was amazing as well. They had no problem with dietary restrictions (I hadn't even realized that a close friend of the family was lactose intolerant and the chef made her a special sandwich when we found out that she couldn't eat any thing on the buffet). Carl House is amazing and if I had to do it all over again, I would choose them again!

The Carl House did an incredible job with our wedding. They were very responsive to our questions and emails from the very beginning of the process. The wedding planner we were initially assigned with left the company three to four months prior to our wedding date...most would think this would have been a very stressful thing in the middle of planning, however, the Carl House assigned a new one (the manager of the venue, Dawn) quickly and she immediately contacted us. Dawn was phenomenal. She helped us every step of the way, answering all of our questions, and helping us plan the perfect wedding. She took her time with us and always made us feel like we were a top priority. As for the day of everything went perfectly. I cannot stress enough how wonderful the staff was. We highly recommend the Carl House!

FANTASTIC! As a young girl, I had always dreamed of my wedding day like most. My main requirements were to feel like a princess and have everything go perfectly. While it may sound far-fetched, that is exactly what I was provided by the Carl House. From the instant I had my initial meeting to consider the venue all the way through my special day, the staff made me feel like the princess as I had hoped and were so helpful. The wedding director Dawn is an absolute sweetheart and genius. She makes you feel like anything in the world is possible and you literally do not stress when you and your event are in her hands. The entire night of my reception, eeveryone commented on how wonderful and helpful the staff were and I too witnessed their professionalism and commitment to the best service possible. For every bride who has dreamed of being a princess, book the Carl House.

The Carl House team made our wedding run very smoothly. I felt very comfortable with Dawn running the show!! She was amazing! Even with a few glitches with a groomsman not showing up and our soloist for one ceremony song not showing up she handled everything with the DJ to substitute the song and changed our Bridal Party order to make everything workout perfect! I highly recommend The Carl House to anyone that is looking for a gorgeous outdoor garden ceremony and a gorgeous indoor vintage looking reception.......and of course an excellent team to make your day be as perfect as it should be!!! Thank you Carl House for making my day as magical as I dreamed it would be!

From the moment we met Monika I knew this was going to be our venue. The house sells itself in the beginning but Monika and Kelsey continued selling with their friendly and welcoming personalities. Each step of the process was organized and I always knew what to expect and what was expected of me for payment. The day of the wedding was stress free thanks to Kelsey,Lindy and the Carl House staff. We never went without a drink in our hand and we even had time to eat! They have certified vendors that I would recommend using as well. It made the process even easier. Don't go anywhere else if you are looking for a fun and organized planning process. They know what they are doing and will make you and your fiance comfortable. Thank you Kelsey, Lindy and Monika!!!

Paul and I had the perfect wedding thanks to the Carl House staff and would not have changed one single thing about our evening! The grounds and house were perfect and our pictures are amazing! The Carl house staff was unbeleivable and we got so many compliments from our guests on how well they were taken care of. The staff even took care of the bridal party during pictures and right after the ceremony! Our wedding planner Kelsey was amazing and handled my freak-out moments like a pro! She had an answer for everything and did a great job at keeping our timeline on track...we could not have done it without her. The food was fantastic, the photo booth was so much fun, the ballroom was beautiful, and we felt truly special all night long. They even packed up our gifts, leftover cake, flowers, and the candles we bought at the end of the night so we didn't forget anything. I would recommend the Carl House to anyone who wants to have the perfect wedding!

They made everyone feel comfortable and I never felt rushed or uncomfortable during anytime spent at the Carl House. Wondeful staff always willing to get anything that you needed or wanted.

I absolutely cannot say enough about the Carl House! They more than met my expectations to create the best day of my life. Kelsey was perfect to work with, and more than willing to run with any idea I may have had. The day would not have run as smoothly as it did without her; it was so nice to get to my wedding day and not have to worry about a thing since I knew she was taking care of it. I could just enjoy myself. They paid attention to every little detail, helping to bring everything together to make my dream come true. I had a Christmas wedding, and through ordering my linens, Kelsey knew what my color scheme was and when I got there on my wedding day I saw that the tree was decorated with the same colors. If I could do everything over again, I would use the Carl House every single time.

As a professional wedding planner I find myself working with different venues a lot. Carl House is one I TRULY love working with. They not only make my bride feel wanted and loved but, they make me feel important as well. It is nice to feel like we can work together as a team to make both our jobs easier and to help our bride feel at ease knowing that everything has been handled with the upmost of care. Having your wedding at the Carl House you will not have to worry about a thing. Monika, Kelsey and the entire time there is completely on their game. No detail is left undone. The venue is beautiful, no matter what time of year it is. I take pride and never hesitate recommending my brides to the Carl House. Keep up the great work!

I got married at the Carl House in November of 2011. I feel so lucky to have had the perfect wedding. I had some unusual requests, and Carl House was willing to accommodate all of them. I had a very small wedding and had a difficult time even finding a place to work with such a small number of guests. Not only did everyone at the Carl House work with me, but they made my day perfect. I couldn't be happier. The location is absolutely BEAUTIFUL. My pictures, which turned out perfectly thanks to the beautiful setting that the Carl House provides, will forever remind me of my perfect day at the Carl House.

I haven't gotten married yet but once I do "grow up" and get married this place will definitely be at the top of my list to share my special day. My experience at Carl House is a little different from most. I'm a producer and filmmaker and recently (on 9/5/11) had the pleasure of utilizing Carl House as a location for our latest short film "Uncle Tom's Cabin". Carl House was everything we could have hoped for in a mansion for our film. BB Webb and her staff were all very gracious and so accomodating. The cast and crew have not stopped talking about how beautiful this place is. No I didn't tie the knot there, but I give Carl House 2 thumbs up and an extra smooches for shooting a film not only because of the beautiful location but also due to the willingness to help and the cooperation of BB and her staff. They are wonderful people to work with. Co-Producer, Uncle Tom's Cabin-2011!/UncleTomsCabinFilm

I got married in June at the Carl House. All I can say is that everything about the entire day was perfect and stressfree due to the Kelsey Banes and the Carl House staff. Every detail was attended to making my day 100% stress free. The location in itself is BEAUTIFUL! The flowers and landscaping is perfect, especially in the spring and summer. The food was unbeliveable. I am still getting compliments on how amazing the food tasted. The buffet was plentiful and the servers were so attentive to everyones needs. If I had to do it all over again I would DEFNITELY use the Carl House again. One word to describe it was Perfect!

My husband and I absolutely loved our wedding! The staff is so personable, caring, and accommodating! Monika, their sales person is a former Carl House bride, which showed me she must of loved her wedding to be working their now. She was so genuine and sweet, and was such a good listener in what we wanted for our wedding. The owner BB even came and sat in on our first appointment which really impressed me because it shows she really gets involved with the brides. The house speaks for itself, beautiful inside and outside ceremony site, which really sold me because I think you have to love the inside as much as the outside in case it rains. The reception was beautiful and I fell in love with the double sided stair case! Go check it out, I fell in love!

The staff at the Carl House were wonderful. The evening was perfect. They had everything planned and laid out so all we had to do was get married and have a great time. For example, when it was time to toss the bouquet, they came up to me (the bride) and told me it was time, and then handed me my bouquet ... I didn't have to search around for the bouquet or go retrieve it! The food was spectacular (FRENCH TOAST for rehearsal brunch! YUM!!). Denise was the best wedding planner: friendly and organized. We had an unusual bridal party (mixed gender and uneven numbers) and she figured it all out and made the day work. The venue itself was beautiful. The outside gardens were colorful and fragrant. The inside with the dual balcony and his and her suites were fabulous. We didn't have to spend a lot on decorations b/c the house itself was all anyone would need. We highly recommend the Carl House!

I knew as soon as I walked into the Carl House ballroom, it would be the location for my reception. My Mom and I fell in love with it immediately and booked my wedding date that same afernoon. The setting, ballroom, food and entire staff was amazing. Our family and friends are still talking about that beautiful Carl House. Our guests came from 16 different states to attend our wedding and many said they had never seen a place like the Carl House! The dinner and hors d'oeuvres were absolutely delicious and everyone involved with my reception allowed us to enjoy the most important day of our lives without worrying about a thing. During the planning process, no question was too trivial and every request we made was accommodated. The staff at the Carl House will treat you like you are the only ones having a wedding there. You won't be disappointed!

And the results are in the pictures...check out and look for the pictures of Emily and Randy The Carl House. We looked at many different venues before we discovered The Carl House. "Attention to detail" is what distinguishes The Carl House from other venues. The minute you walk the grounds or enter the house all amenities are impeccably maintained. Many thanks to The Carl House staff for ensuring our guests were treated to a remarkable wedding (5 star event). We are so thankful and blessed!

My new husband and I had our event at the Carl House. The estate is gorgeous beyond compare and once you have a look at the grounds there is no argument that the place is a beautiful spot to hold an event. But even more importantly, the level of service that was provided exceeded all expectations.

Every single guest complimented not only the food and the flowers (both done by the Carl House) but the entire wait staff was so sweet and attentive and helpful. Our wedding director was nothing short of a superwoman and expertly oversaw everything and made sure that the day went as planned and that everything was handled. I can't say enough kind words about how wonderful everyone at this establishment was to my family and guests and how blessed we felt to have them as part of our big day. Going anywhere else would be foolish! Valerie, Bride

What can you say about a wedding venue that charges modest rates yet delivers an extravaganza? All you have to say is BB Webb and Carl House. My daughter selected the Carl House and my wife selected the wedding plan. After the wedding, you could not have convinced me that we didnt spend a $100,000 superior photographer, videographer, location, cake, food and wedding planner!!!! A five star event magical event words could never adequately capture the memories created by BB and her staff! John Hunt, Father of the Bride

I just cannot say enough good things about this place, the people, the food, the flowers and all involved!! Being a bride that was planning from 900 miles away was quite a feat, and came with its share of complications but my venue and everything involved was something I never had to worry about, knowing I was well taken care of and in fantastic hands.

I am just in awe at how sweet the entire Carl House team was along with the rest of the staff was. On the big day I was completely taken care of with my wedding director helping me with every little detail. We got the chicken and it was so yummy! Bruchetta appetizer was to die for too!! All of our guests raved about what a gorgeous venue and how smoothly everything went. If you are a bride looking for your dream venue, I have good news for you.. your search is over! THIS IS THE PLACE! Heather, Bride
