Mary Our Queen’s 20th Anniversary Dinner

Mary Our Queen’s 20th Anniver­sary Dinner


We want to thank Mary our Queen Catholic Church for trust­ing us to host another event for them. The 20th anniver­sary was a very impor­tant night and the turn-out was won­der­ful. They were the nicest peo­ple and every­one had a great time. Lots of com­pli­ments about the food, ser­vice, and facil­ity thank you so much.

Thank you, Gerise.  Every­thing on the final bill looks to be cor­rect.  I don’t need the drink tick­ets, you could just dis­pose of them.


I have heard noth­ing but pos­i­tive com­ments about Sat­ur­day and every­one thought the food was excel­lent.  Hope every­thing worked out okay for your staff….sometimes it felt like I was try­ing to herd cats when I tried to keep every­one out of the din­ing room so I hope we didn’t get in the way too much!


Thank you for help­ing to make our event so successful.



Thank you Joanne for the kind words!

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!

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!
