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!

Heart for Africa


Heart for Africa is a Chris­t­ian non-profit 501©3 pub­lic char­ity. Work­ing along­side churches in Swazi­land, they are pro­vid­ing care and hope for a future for chil­dren in this small African nation. Through short term ser­vice trips, child spon­sor­ship, and large fund rais­ing pro­grams, they are work­ing to deliver qual­ity care, shel­ter, food, water, cloth­ing, health care, and edu­ca­tion to the orphaned and vul­ner­a­ble chil­dren of Swazi­land. We enjoyed see­ing what they do while they hosted their suc­cess­ful fundraiser here at The Car­lyle House! Every­one enjoyed the wine pair­ing meal with 4 courses of yummy food and wine. They are such nice, car­ing, and hard­work­ing peo­ple for the chil­dren, what a won­der­ful cause.

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! :)

Thank you National Charity League (NCL)



The National Char­ity League (NLC) had their Senior Pre­sen­ta­tion Day again with us this year! I know the Daughter’s Reflec­tion lun­cheon is a very spe­cial time for every­one. The girls and moms loved the mixed green salad with grilled chicken and glazed pecans. The dessert was a huge hit, fresh fruit with a choco­late cup piled with choco­late mousse, the plates came back all empty! :) The dec­o­ra­tions were beau­ti­ful as well as the weather! We are so glad every­one had a great time at The Car­lyle House. Thank you National Char­ity League (NCL) for all you guys do for the com­mu­nity, and for allow­ing the 173 Car­lyle House to host you Senior Pre­sen­ta­tion Day.
