Congratulation Leeza and Nick!

The flour­ish­ing beauty of the envi­ron­ment this time of year, the time of pas­sion, emo­tions, and love make SPRING a fab­u­lous time to get mar­ried! Some­times it is enough just to take a look around and observe the beauty of nature sur­round­ing us every­where. The pink and white Dog­wood trees were amaz­ing, the Wis­te­ria hang­ing, and the red Maple tree were absolutely gor­geous! Along with all the sweet touches Leeza and Nick added it was a per­fect day. Their love for each other was as beau­ti­ful as the environment!

The guests all loved the menu 3 kinds of PASTA! YUM… the Chicken Marsala and Grilled Salmon were also a huge hit. AND who doesn’t LOVE candy always a favorite favor after a great reception!

Congratulations John and Abby!

Choos­ing a Sun­day for your wed­ding cer­e­mony and recep­tion often makes eco­nom­i­cal and logis­ti­cal sense. It is also a per­fect day of the week here at The Car­lyle House because we only have one event on that day which lends to lots of flex­i­bil­ity! John and Abby choose this day and it couldn’t have been more per­fect. There was not one cloud in the sky! Their guests had a grand time with the full bar, yummy food, and won­der­ful atmos­phere! There was lots of danc­ing and par­ty­ing. They were a real fun group and John and Abby were right there with them every step of the way. Con­grat­u­la­tions to the happy cou­ple we wish you many years of hap­pi­ness! XO XO

Congratulations Angela and Judd!

Any­one prepar­ing for a wed­ding knows that rain is a pos­si­bil­ity. We always have a good “plan B” but who really wants to go with that plan when you have a mag­i­cal out­side cer­e­mony planned? Every­one liv­ing any­where close to Atlanta on Sat­ur­day knows that it rained all day EXCEPT the small win­dow that allowed Angela & Judd to get mar­ried out­side! Every­thing was so green, beau­ti­ful, and yes Mag­i­cal! We are so thank­ful the ter­race dries so quick with a lit­tle effort.

Every­one had a blast eat­ing, drink­ing, and vis­it­ing with fam­ily and friends! As usual the beef ten­der­loin was a huge hit. Chef William knows how to cook it just per­fect! We also got lots of guests want­ing the squash recipe which is always another favorite. Best of luck to the very sweet couple!

 

 

Chris and Ashley’s magical night

Chris + Ashley

It is not taboo to have the rehearsal din­ner at the recep­tion site. That is exactly what Ash­ley and Chris did and it couldn’t have been more per­fect. The bride of course kept the dec­o­ra­tions as a sur­prise for the wed­ding recep­tion. Mix­ing it up with a Low Coun­try Boil was per­fect. Totally oppo­site of what they did the next night. The food was AMAZING! Every­one had a won­der­ful time and we loved get­ting emails on Mon­day from both sets of par­ents telling us how awe­some the week­end was!

Congratulations Ashley and Chris!

Have a wed­ding recep­tion and the rehearsal din­ner at the same loca­tion can sim­plify both the plan­ning and the flow of the week­end. We really got to know Chris, Ash­ley, and both sides of the fam­i­lies this week­end. What won­der­ful, kind, and “FUN” peo­ple they all were. They started in the old house with appe­tiz­ers and cock­tails for an hour. The Scal­lops wrapped with bacon and cold crab meat were two favorites. Flow­ing down in the ball­room for the recep­tion they had 3 food sta­tions. Most pop­u­lar as usual was the Beef Ten­der­loin, Salmon Welling­ton, and the Smashed Mar­tini Potato Bar.

The col­ored shoes and flow­ers the brides­maids wore were just another reflec­tion of the “FUN” cou­ple. To top it all off the cookie cake and “FUNFETTI” wed­ding cake was a huge sur­prise to all the guests!!! Every­one left with huge smiles on their faces col­lect­ing their favors. The brides mom the next day emailed us…“Thank YOU for such a won­der­ful, beau­ti­ful, ele­gant, and deli­cious evening. It sur­passed our expec­ta­tions, and we expected it to be per­fect!” Good Luck to Chris and Ash­ley you make a per­fect and “FUN” couple.
