Claire and Garrett’s Rehearsal Dinner + Welcome PartyMay 12, 2023

173 Carlyle House


We loved hosting Claire and Garrett’s Rehearsal Dinner and Welcome Party here at the 173 Carlyle House in historic Norcross, Georgia, such a beautiful couple.  We love a smaller rehearsal dinner with close friends and family, with a big welcome party. It is a great way to kick off the wedding weekend. The welcome party is a chance to literally welcome your guests to your wedding and give them a taste of what’s in store for them for the weekend!


The bride and groom always love to spend extra time with the guests especially when having a larger wedding the following day. This group of friends and family was truly super special. There were some very heartfelt toasts during dinner.  The LOVE from their friends and family was like nothing I had ever seen. AND the couple just glowed.


Congratulations Claire and Garrett you guys make a great couple. Two wonderful families coming together as one we know you will have many, many, many years of happiness.

Beautiful note from the groom’s mom:



A big THANK YOU for a memorable evening!   I am so pleased we selected The Carlyle house and you and the entire staff were so helpful, patient and fun!   I appreciate all the attention to detail and your helpful suggestions, etc.   The guests all commented on how lovely the property and setting was for our big evening.


Let me know how we ended up on the liquor. My hunch is we were under on the wine and beer that was included in the original tab.


Again, thank you so much!
