We love the tra­di­tion of a rehearsal din­ner here at The Car­lyle House! It’s such a spe­cial time where the bridal party, close friends, and fam­i­lies of the bride and groom come together to share a meal! AND… it was quite a meal full of yummy south­ern food and lots of good drink! The guests went home with a full stom­ach, for sure! What bet­ter way to calm the pre-wedding jit­ters! Best of luck to Kara and Parker!

From Parker’s Mom.…


First of all, thank you so much for every­thing you and all the Car­lyle House staff did for us.  Our Rehearsal Din­ner was great!  The house looked beau­ti­ful and was absolutely per­fect for the occa­sion.  We had so many com­pli­ments from our guests about how beau­ti­ful every­thing was and how deli­cious the food was!  But most impor­tant, my son and his bride loved it and said it was every­thing they had hoped it would be.  Please pass along our thanks to every­one at the Car­lyle House.  I would not hes­i­tate to use the Car­lyle House again or to rec­om­mend it to some­one else.

Con­grat­u­la­tions Kara and Parker!

Congratulations Nicole and Marc!

Congratulations Nicole and Marc!

Nicole was so sweet to work with. She wanted every­thing to be just per­fect and had a vision of exactly what she wanted. Together with their fam­ily and friends they exchanged vows under the arbor on the ter­race. It was a beau­ti­ful day for an out­side wed­ding with no wor­ries of rain.

She had a lot of great friends help­ing her with the decor and her vision came together. The guests loved the cock­tail hour in the old house. When they moved to the ball­room for din­ner they were very impressed with the menu Nicole and Marc had picked out. They LOVED the Salmon Welling­ton, New York Strip, and the Smashed Mar­tini Potato Bar. There were lots of peo­ple com­pli­ment­ing the chef on how good every­thing was. She also had a friend make her cakes and they were so cute. We are so happy we got to part of such a won­der­ful wed­ding. Below is a note Nicole sent us the next day…

OMG! thank you & your staff for an amaz­ing wed­ding. Marc & I couldn’t be hap­pier. all the guests had fun too. I loved your venue & will def­i­nitely rec­om­mend it in the future! I’ll look for pics on Face­book! did you get our invitation?

Con­grat­u­la­tions Nicole and Marc!

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!

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! :)
