Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs Williams!

Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs Williams!

Sta­cie + Leon


Sta­cie and Leon made such a cute cou­ple. Together with their friends and fam­ily they exchanged vows inside. The cer­e­mony site was beau­ti­ful with its pur­ple accents and can­dle­light. Their unity can­dle was so pretty with their last name engraved.

After the cer­e­mony the guests enjoyed the appe­tiz­ers. The biggest hit was the home­made mar­tini grits bar. Every­one loved the grits with all of the fab­u­lous top­pings. The shrimp and sausage was the favorite top­ping! :0) Yummy!

When they moved to the ball­room they couldn’t believe there was more won­der­ful food for them to enjoy.

The M&M con­tain­ers were so cute and a per­fect favor for all the guests. Con­grat­u­la­tions to Mr. and Mrs Williams!

Congratulations Kristin and Brett!

There was no fret­ting about the weather on Octo­ber 17, 2014. It was such a beau­ti­ful day with NO wor­ries of rain! The cer­e­mony site could not have been pret­tier with the red rose petals mark­ing the way along with the can­dle­light from the gor­geous lanterns. Brett looked so ready to take Kristin’s hand from her father. The love was beam­ing from them and their fam­ily and friends.

After the cer­e­mony every­one enjoyed appe­tiz­ers, drinks, a carv­ing sta­tion, and other sta­tions with yummy items. The night was topped off by a deli­cious and beau­ti­ful wed­ding cake. The candy sta­tion as always was a big hit. We loved all the decor, Kristin did a great job per­son­al­iz­ing it to fit them. We loved the table assign­ments and the names of the tables match­ing their photo ages! We over­heard lots of peo­ple say­ing that was such a “great wed­ding!” Best of Luck to the Happy Cou­ple!!! We had a great time being part of your very spe­cial day. :)

I think Rachel and Jeremiah pulled this off!

If I had to choose the num­ber one thing that cou­ples say they’re try­ing to do these days when it comes to their wed­dings, I would say one word: per­son­al­ize. They want their wedding—and espe­cially their ceremony—to really, truly, deeply reflect them. To not fit into some pre-existing cookie-cutter struc­ture. They want their guests to leave their cel­e­bra­tion say­ing, “Wow, that was so them.” I think Rachel and Jere­miah pulled this off!  From the lights over the cer­e­mony, to the paper lanterns, mason jars with their ini­tials, to the ter­race games, the Chi­nese cook­ies and appe­tiz­ers, and the unique table assign­ments every­thing was well thought out! Rachel was so pos­i­tive it would all work per­fectly there really wasn’t even a plan B. She just knew we would make it beau­ti­ful no mat­ter what and we did!!! It turned out to be the most won­der­ful night after a lot of rain through­out the day. We LOVE the ter­race so much it can rain cats and dogs and be dry 10 min­utes later! We feel very for­tu­nate to be a big part of such a big, beau­ti­ful wed­ding, Rachel and Jere­miah make a per­fect cou­ple!!! The LOVE between the two fam­i­lies was amaz­ing and wonderful! :)


Congratulations Brett and Kelli!

Fall is one of the most pop­u­lar times to plan a wed­ding — and for good rea­son! Gor­geous nat­ural foliage and tem­per­ate weather make for great fall wed­dings. The weather could not have been more amaz­ing this week­end for the first wed­ding of Octo­ber. Nobody could have ordered up a pret­tier day! Kelli and Brett had a great group of fam­ily and friends all of which were very com­pli­men­tary about the facil­ity. Every­one enjoyed the cock­tail hour with deli­cious appe­tiz­ers. They were even more impressed when they moved down to the ball­room for a seated din­ner with a yummy salad, a twin entree of petite Filet Mignon and chicken picatta and beau­ti­fully pre­pared assorted desserts! Let’s don’t for­get the wed­ding cake.….so PRETTY and GOOD! Kelli and Brett make a great cou­ple, I am sure they will enjoy many years of hap­pi­ness together!!!! Con­grat­u­la­tions Brett and Kelli!

Thank You Debra!

Wow! The 173 Car­lyle House staff is so touched and thank­ful for such kind words. It’s emails like this that make all our efforts worth it. In fact we were so touched that we wanted to share the sentiments.

Good After­noon Gerise – This is so late, but it has been a busy week at work since I got back.  I just wanted you to know that you were absolutely the most won­der­ful per­son to help us and the most won­der­ful facil­ity I could have ever imag­ined us work­ing with for Megan’s dream wed­ding.  It was a plea­sure get­ting to know you and the wed­ding went off with­out a hitch!  Thank you for all you did to help make this such a mem­o­rable expe­ri­ence for every­one.  The food was won­der­ful, the servers were so help­ful and prompt and the of course, you and the facil­ity, are top notch!  I meant to get back to you ear­lier this week, but I want to tell you now that every­one enjoyed every­thing about the wed­ding and recep­tion, and for the most part, that is because of you!  Bless­ings to you and I am really glad that God saw fit for us to work together in his divine tim­ing!  I will surely rec­om­mend The Car­lyle House to any­one who is look­ing for a venue and hope the rest of the year is top notch for you and the whole crew!  Bless­ings, Deb Lewis
