“Kudos to the staff of Carl House for doing an absolute fabulous job. The food was excellent and plentiful. The flowers, decor, and the grounds were beautiful and the professionalism from start to finish was amazing. Thank you again for giving my daughter the wedding of her dreams.” – Cheryl Moore, MOB

“The moment I first stepped into the Carl House, I knew it was the place where I wanted to get married. My husband and I did visit one more venue after seeing the Carl House, but out hearts and minds never left it. The Carl House team simply made us feel at home from the very beginning. Whether you want an indoor or outdoor ceremony, this place is absolutely beautiful. If you need a florist, look no futher than their very own Lindy. She did an amazing job with our flowers; everything was beautiful! Our wedding day really was perfect, and we could not have done it without our wedding director Nicole. She kept a positive outlook even when I was worried about rain (the weather was perfect!). It is clear that she loves what she does, and she is great at it. She made the day go so smoothly making it possible for me to enjoy every last second. If you are looking for a place to get married, or for any other special event, you will not find a better place than the Carl House.” – Mary McAdams, Bride

Our Wedding Day

5/ 5

Hello Readers, Just to let you know a little about myself. I am the bride of this recent event. When starting this journey I was finishing up my last year of professional school, so my schedule was a little crazy to say the least. I researched and researched ……and researched multiple venues to have my dream wedding. At first my row Husband and I wanted to get married at a venue that could accommodate a decent party size and have our ceremony and reception inside. We wanted a venue that would take care of our family, wedding party, and guests. Also, we wanted a venue that was willing to work with my budget. After visiting multiple venues my husband and I finally visited the Carl house. I was blown away by the venue. It was so Beautiful I even considered changing our plan and wanted to have my ceremony outside. Also, the house was so gorgeous and the Carl House was fully staffed to take care of all of my guests. In addition they had on site catering and florals! So, I thought ok how much is this going to cost me???? I thought it was going to blow my budget…. but Carl House was very good about helping me decide what I really wanted/needed so that i could have the dream wedding that I wanted that also fit within my budget. Also, they were really good about working with my busy schedule! So as you already know I booked my wedding date with Carl House. But the great things do not end just yet…. If you book with Carl House, they have a list of amazing vendors that are just as fabulous. I researched every vendor myself inside and outside of Carl House recommendations. My other recommendation to you is to book their Florist Lindy! She made the vision of the flowers and decor of my wedding so much better that I could image. I would not have changed a single thing. Lastly, I need you to know about Carl House’s Amazing Wedding Coordinator Nicole! The day of my wedding, when I say it poured….. IT POURED!!! Nicole help make every decision I made so stress free! We ended up having the wedding Inside like my husband and I originally wanted! It was amazing! Nicole was taking care of our wedding party, my family, our guests, and My husband and I the entire event! Everything ran on schedule, everything happened just the way we wanted it to, My HUSBAND AND I GOT TO EAT OUR FOOD, and there was so much more! I do not know how she does it! But she deserves much more credit than she gets. It has been 3 weeks since my wedding and all of our friends and family are still talking about how amazing she was and how we found her! Carl House was worth everything and their staff is amazing and made My Husbands and My wedding a dream come true! Everything was perfect and I would do it the same exact way all over again! Thank you so much Carl House and TEAM! We are so grateful for all of you!

Our Dream Day

4.8/ 5

The Carl House is an absolutely stunning venue with an amazing staff. Everyone we dealt with was very polite and helpful throughout the entire planning process. Lindy, the in house florist delivered what was easily my favorite aspect of our day, our flowers and arrangements. She is immensely talented and just down right sweet. Nicole, our coordinater was no nonsense and really took care of all of our needs, also very sweet and a hugger! On the big day Indira took over and kept things on track and everything went smoothly. It has been a month and our guests still talk about how amazing the food was and it truly was delicious. Overall, wonderful experience and would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a classy location to host their wedding.

An unforgettable day

5/ 5

Leading up to any wedding can be extremely stressful. Making sure all the minor details get taken care of, that all guests get into town safely and are comfortable, etc. There is no doubt that mine definitely was, however, when it came time for the ceremony to start all of that stress seemed to fade away! Nicole did an amazing job attending to my every want and need. The ceremony was beautiful and the reception was out of this world! All of my guests are still raving about the food. The venue is absolutely gorgeous and I am so thankful that we chose the Carl House as our venue for our wedding. We couldn’t be happier!

The Essence of Magical Day

5/ 5

Once we laid eyes on Carl House, my husband and I knew immediately that this was the perfect venue to hold our intimate, classic vintage themed wedding! Not only were the grounds and venue beautiful, the Carl House staff were an ABSOLUTE pleasure to work with as we planned our special day. Through the entire planning process and the day of, they were very responsive, thorough, accommodating, professional, AND patient (with all of our questions). As a result, we felt very confident in Carl House’s ability to deliver. From the beautifully executed florals by Lindy to the stellar wedding coordination by Nicole, our wedding day was magical and far exceeded our expectations. And the magic did not stop there…the in house catering by Carl House was also exceptional! Kudos to Carl House, especially Nicole and Lindy!

We were married on August 22, 2015 at the Carl House in Auburn, GA. The Carl House is a fabulous location for anyone who is looking to have an elegant wedding that requires first class service and attention to detail. I can’t say enough about our wedding coordinator, Nicole Benson and the entire Carl House team. They have mastered the art of perfect weddings. Our family and friends are still raving about how beautiful everything was and how much fun they had. From the initial stages of planning through the day of our wedding, the Carl House team was there to provide their expertise. This made our lives a lot easier. They also have an excellent selection of vendors that offer everything from cakes to DJ services. Angela & Enrique Willingham

The Best Day Ever

5/ 5

Wow! There are no words to describe how thankful I am that we chose the Carl House for our big day! Everything was just PERFECT. The team is great- every single person works together with you to understand your vision, and on that day, they work hard to make sure the only thing you’re worried about is marrying your best friend. With two beautiful ceremony spaces and reception space, onsite catering, onsite florists, and in-house wedding coordinators, you can’t go wrong with this marvelously elegant venue! This was the first and ONLY venue we visited, because we knew from day one that this would be the best venue ever for our best day ever. Thank you to the Carl House team for all of your help and support! We love you!

5/ 5

I can NOT begin to say enough WONDERFUL things about Carl House! Once I saw the beautiful double stair case, I knew this was place where our fairy tale wedding would take place. The grounds, reception hall, the house, really every aspect is absolutely breathtaking. Nicole, the head wedding planner, made our day so stress free that we were able to enjoy every aspect of our special day! She and her team at Carl House took care of every detail. Lindy, head of floral, made all of our flower arrangements, bouquets, and boutonnieres. All of the flowers were exquisite. They added so much beautiful color to our ceremony and reception. All of the staff at Carl House worked flawlessly together and helped my husband Dustin and I to have the best day ever! I highly recommend Carl House to any bride who is looking for a romantic fairy tale!

Perfect Wedding!

5/ 5

Our experience at the Carl House was spectacular. Everyone was a joy to work with and they made it so easy for my mom and I to plan my special day. Nicole was spectacular and always knew the answer to every question and was more than willing to answer anything I had to ask. Lindy made the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen. The food was spectacular and so was the service on my wedding day. The team is so upbeat & positive. BB (the owner) was even around during my wedding and she was an extreme joy to be around too. I cannot say enough positive things about the place. The grounds are GORGEOUS if you want to take pictures outside and it was very conducive to a large wedding party. My wedding ended up having around 150 guests and it was a perfect fit for the reception. Thank you again to the entire Carl House staff for making my wedding so perfect! I will definitely recommend your venue to future Brides!

Carl House is AMAZING!

4.8/ 5

I would like to share that our experience with the Carl House was, simply put….AMAZING. My wife and i had been engaged for over a year and during the majority of this time our wedding was booked at a different venue. It so happened that for reasons outside of our control (and a singularly crazy venue owner) we ended up losing this venue only 2 MONTHS before our wedding date! Needless to say, my wife was crushed…we lost a 220 year old plantation home with garden and we did not know what to do. We were online and looking for a place that could accomodate our date and more importantly our budget. Honestly, it did not take us long to decide. the first venue we looked at after this catastrophe was the Carl House. We called and set up a time with Amy (the event manager) and we could not be more pleased. With a pleasant and professional demeanor Amy put us at ease and quickly started laying out the Carl house options. It was obvious that to her, a short booking can be very stressful to all however she was willing to work within the Carl house business plan to get us what we needed. She showed us around the grounds and talked about the venue option and we were sold! The best part was THEY HAD OUR DATE! YAY! Fast forward to the short booking. The first time I met Nicole Benson (Wedding Director) I knew this was the woman for the job. She quickly made it so easy to understand everything in a series of short meetings that I was no longer worried about our short booking. We knew the Carl House would not let us down. We were not wrong, our wedding day was wonderful, and Nicole handled our series of crisis without hesitation. The wedding ceremony was indoors due to weather, FOB arrived after scheduled ceremony time and our guests were hungry due to the long wait. The Carl House Made sure there were plenty of Hors d’oeuvres for our guests, the wait staff was respectful and attentive and overall our day went off with only one hitch!(pun intended ;-] ) I would recommend Carl House (and Nicole) to ANYONE who is interested in this beautiful plantation style home as the place where you start your life with the one you love!

Amazing Venue

5/ 5

We were married on September 5, 2015 and it was absolutely beautiful. We could not have asked for a better venue to have for our wedding. Nicole made everything from extremely simple, she tells you like it is and knows what works and doesn’t work. The house is so well decorated we only used decorations on the tables. The only thing I wish would have been better kept up was the landscape. Compared to the pictures you see on the website, it doesn’t look the same. I just wish it was better kept up. I definitely recommend the Carl House for any wedding for anyone looking for an elegant yet old time feel for your wedding. Thank You Carl House!!!

Magical Experience

5/ 5

I have always heard good things about the Carl House when it came to the actual house and the beauty of the grounds. Even in December when me and my fiance (at the time) went to view the venue, I was amazed with its beauty. So, I knew that on my wedding day I would not be disappointed with appearances of the property. I also was in love with the pictures of the Carl House floral. I was blown away on my wedding day. Lindy, the floral director, was amazing. She did a fantastic job. I could have not asked for anything different. THE STAFF WAS AMAZING. Our wedding director Nicole was so sweet and always on point. She was available whenever I needed her and was a great guide during the entire process. The food was wonderful. The chef will change the flavoring to whatever you would like (spicier, etc.). I truly felt like a princess on my wedding day because the Carl House staff waited on us hand and foot. It was an amazing experience and the Best Day Ever! Cheers to happily ever after!

A Magical Night

5/ 5

A wedding is stressful enough without adding in all the outside opinions and changes in plans (that are not your idea), but working with Nicole Benson and The Carl House made my perfect day that much easier. Nicole was by my side the entire time and always available to me if I needed her. On the wedding day she made everything run smoothly. What this wedding showed me is that I am a bit of a control freak (I would usually like to do everything on my own, so I know it’s done right), but Nicole made me feel totally comfortable letting go of that control and allowing her to take the reins. I had complete trust in her, and for good reason. I don’t how she pulled it off, but the night was seamless. The rain even held off so we could do the ceremony outside, which is gorgeous! The reason I picked this place though was that, even if it had been inside, it would have been just as beautiful. The inside is GORGEOUS! The staff that was serving everyone was great and very attentive. I didn’t get to meet her, but my guests had raving reviews for the bartender, they said she was hilarious. Lindy and her team provided the flowers and I can’t say enough wonderful things about them either. There was no stress there, she was quick to respond to any questions I had. The flowers were everything I dreamed of and more. She really listened to what I wanted and more than delivered. She is also there to set up centerpieces, which was another thing I didn’t have to worry about because she did a fabulous job. Overall, I can’t say enough good things about this venue. Everything was perfect and WHEN you pick them you will be in excellent hands.

Carl House Wedding

The Carl House was the perfect venue for my wedding! I loved how wonderful the staff was and how many services were provided by the Carl House. I highly recommend using their florist and their caterer offered good variety. The gardens are beautiful for an outdoor wedding, but the rain backup plan to bring the wedding indoors has to be called pretty early in the day, which was challenging. However, the staff did everything they could to accommodate my desire for an outdoor wedding! I wouldn’t change a thing!

Carl House~~

4.4/ 5

I loved my wedding at the Carl House!! The venue was the highest priced venue my fiance and I visited however it was also the most beautiful. I will say you get abit more for your money for food and drinks at other venues we visited but the beauty won it over for us. Nicole Benson, my wedding coordinator was AMAZING!!! Seriously I could not have imagined a better sweeter coordinator!! Everytime I came to the Carl house she always put me at ease and you could tell she really cared about how you felt. If it was not for the beauty of the venue and Nicole I really might have regretted choosing the carl house cause it was pricey, but everytime I think back to my wedding I could not help but smile at how awesome it turned out. Just a side note though, if you choose the Carl House you really need to hire a DJ or rent a sound system. We thought they had surround sound in the reception room during our initial tour, only to find out it only works for their radio.

One Happy Mrs.

5/ 5

Everything was great – from the venue, to the food, to the service we received. The venue is gorgeous, has outdoor or indoor ceremony space. We did indoor. It has a beautiful mezzanine (I walked down the stairs to the aisle, and we had dinner upstairs with bridal party and close family – very intimate). Our guests raved about the food, everything was delicious! The wedding coordinator was awesome – she was always quick to respond to all of my questions, even near the end, when I was probably a not-so-fun-to-work-with stressed-out Bride(zilla). She was great the day of too – gathering our things from the rooms, which we may have left otherwise. We paid for our entire wedding ourselves, and this venue allowed us the day of our dreams. SO fairly priced for what you get!! To this day, there are friends and family members that tell us our wedding was one of the most beautiful weddings they have attended. I’d highly recommend this venue to anyone!!

I couldn’t be more pleased with how my big day went at the Carl House!! From the food, to the service, everything was 100 percent what I wanted. The staff were incredibly thoughtful and were so helpful and made the day run smooth as silk. It was beautiful inside and out! We had an indoor ceremony and it was beautiful and the staff flipped the ballroom in a very reasonable amount of time for the reception. Most of all, I’d like to mention the on site coordinator, Nicole! She was the absolute best part of my experience at the Carl House and made sure everything was just right behind the scenes. I don’t know what I would have done without her. I would recommend the Carl House to anyone looking to have their big day there. They are professional, easy to work with, and have a beautiful campus. I loved it!

Perfect Venue for Christmas Wedding

5/ 5

My husband and I truly loved our experience with the Carl House. Everything about our special day was perfect because of the extraordinary team at the venue. Nicole, our wedding director, made us feel at ease as she took care of every last detail for us. She was always available to answer questions before the event, and she stayed with us through the rehearsal and wedding day to make sure everything was exactly how we wanted it. The venue itself was beautiful for the wedding. Our wedding was in December, and the decorations for Christmas were so elegant. The ballroom where the ceremony and reception took place was so wonderful as well, and no other indoor ceremony space could compare. The double staircase entrance is so unique to the venue and provides the bride with a regal grand entrance to the ceremony that won’t be easily forgotten. In addition to the beautiful estate and wedding director, Lindy, the florist, is amazing at what she does and she works diligently to go beyond your expectations without breaking the bank. The catering is great as well, as all of our food was excellent. The entire night was more than I could have ever asked for.

I am so happy I chose the Carl house as my venue. It was perfect. Not only was it gorgeous and absolutely lovely, but Nicole, the onsite wedding planner/coordinator was absolutely amazing.. She was amazing and made sure the entire event went smoothly. I accidentally put te ceremony on the invitations for 30 minutes after when it was supposed to start, and found out this was the case the night before the wedding. We texted Nicole immediately and she took care of it. It all worked out wonderfully and my wedding was everything I had hoped it would be.

Choosing Carl House for our reception venue was the best decision I made regarding the reception. Not only is the site beautiful, elegant, and charming, but the staff is fantastic as well. Nicole made the entire event run smoothly and made sure every detail of the evening was taken care of. Lindy, the in-house florist, is absolutely amazing as well. Our flowers were more perfect than I could have ever envisioned. The food was also exceptional! Our event was held in December so the house was decorated for Christmas, which was absolutely stunning! I highly recommend using the Carl House for any special event!

The Perfect Day

5/ 5

Our wedding at the Carl House was simply perfect! The Carl House staff were amazing to work with leading up to our wedding and the day of. They were attentive to every detail and made the day go by as smoothly as possible. On the big day, Nicole (their in-house coordinator) was on top of everything. She worked with our outside vendors including the large band and photographer to get them all set. The whole time, she made sure everything went perfectly so I didn’t have to worry about it. Everyone says your wedding day is a blur, but I remember every detail of mine because I did not have to worry about the small things. Nicole made sure everyone got to the buffet, that the band played at the right time, that speeches and toasts were made, and that guests knew where to go for cocktail hour. She made sure our bags were packed into the limo at the end of the night. She made sure that we had a chance to eat our dinner without everyone crowding the bridal table. The Carl House staff took such great care of the whole bridal party. They brought us drinks and some of the appetizers while we were taking pictures so that we would not miss out on the amazing food. They had one person who took care of just my husband and I the whole night. And, the food was amazing! All of our guests said the food was great. We also held our rehearsal and rehearsal dinner at the Carl House, which was also perfect. Anna, the events manager, worked with us to make sure that the ballroom had completely different setups and feelings for both days so that our family and bridal party did not feel that they were having the same dinner experience twice. And again, the food was wicked awesome! I could go on and on about how wonderful the Carl House staff and Nicole were. Everything was perfect and I would not have changed a thing. It was the wedding my husband and I pictured it to be and we were not stressed at all the whole day.

Charm, Elegance, and Servitude

4.4/ 5

My husband and I looked and looked for our wedding venue. Many of the venues we saw had hidden costs and the staff acted as if they were above us. When we found the Carl House, we were thrilled by the professionalism and straightforward business approach. Nicole Benson, our wedding coordinator from the Carl House, was truly one of the most valuable individuals planning our wedding and masterminding the day of activities. She is very detail oriented, takes fantastic notes, and makes each and everyone of her brides feel AMAZING. She even grabbed me to put extra lip gloss on so that I would look great in my photos. Our food was phenomenal!! All of our guests (which included celiac,diabetic, and vegetarians) were impressed by the food. The drinks were served quickly during the cocktail hour and there was no lacking in pours. The grounds are always well kept and the charm of the house speaks for its self. As I descended the grand staircase to meet my groom, I felt every bit the blushing bride. Nicole, Bebe, and the entire Carl House team don’t let a single detail slip and go the extra mile to make your day everything that you dream it could be. I wish I could go back and relive our wedding over and over. It was PERFECT and I wouldn’t have changed a thing. Highly recommend this venue any bride.

Perfect Wedding at the Perfect Venue

5/ 5

We had the perfect September wedding at Carl House! Not only is the venue absolutely breathtaking inside and out, but it’s actually a very affordable venue. Included in the price is a wedding planner, who meets with you 90 days prior, 3 weeks prior and is with you during the rehearsal and during your entire wedding. The Carl House staff, especially our wedding planner Nicole, were absolutely amazing! They made sure the event ran seamlessly and treated our family and friends with so much kindness and professionalism. I received so many compliments on my wedding – especially the food! If you’re looking for a top notch venue, look no farther than Carl House.

Your wedding day is suppose to be the most magical day, and thanks to the Carl House team, this day was as magical as it could be! The venue was gorgeous and the level of service that was provide far exceeded any expectations that we had. The food was delicious, the flowers were exactly what we wanted and the staff was attentive, sweet and definitely knew what they were doing! I would recommend the Carl House and their team to anyone and everyone. I especially want to thank our coordinator Nicole, who made our big day so special and ensured that everything went off without a hitch!

A beautiful house and an elegant but cozy indoor atmosphere for a winter wedding. The Carl House was a great team. We enjoyed working with them. They were very responsive to emails and questions throughout the wedding planning process. My only complaint was that we were switched between wedding managers a few times so the meetings were all with different directors. We would have liked a little more consistency. The in house florist, Lindy, was wonderful! The staff was very attentive to the bride, groom, family, and bridal party throughout the wedding.

Our wedding at the Carl House was perfect! We fell in love with the venue the first time we saw it. The staff was very friendly and helped us whenever we needed it during the wedding planning process. Nicole is wonderful! She did an amazing job at the wedding and kept everything running smoothly! I got to enjoy my wedding day without having to worry and stress about anything else!

The Carl House is awesome!

5/ 5

My husband and I chose the Carl House for our end of April wedding. We loved all the beautiful flowers in the garden, the staff, and the house itself. It is such a pretty venue and our guests loved it. They truly made our wedding special and we are so pleased with our pick!!! The food was exceptional, and the attentiveness to details on every aspect of our wedding was great. I was able to kick back and relax while the wedding planner did almost everything for us. We loved it!!!!

The Carl House was amazing! If you want to have your dream wedding with as little stress as possible, have your wedding here. The food was fabulous, the in house cupcake bar was to die for, and every guest left the wedding with a huge smile on their face! I would choose the Carl House all over again!

We couldn't be happier!

5/ 5

I can’t say enough good things about Carl House! They made our wedding day look effortless. Every one we worked with was so helpful and kind throughout the entire planning process and it made our big day that much more special. A big thank you to our wedding director Nicole, who kept the day running smoothly, and to Lindy, our florist, who made our dream of getting married under the oak tree a dream come true! Look no further, because the Carl House has it all. Amazing food, a beautiful ballroom and garden, and wonderful, helpful staff. My guests are still raving about my wedding and my husband and I couldn’t be happier we chose Carl House!

Amazing!!

5/ 5

I got married at Carl House this past June and I loved everything about my wedding…from the ceremony to the food to all of the amazing staff! I fell in love the moment I walked into Carl House! I really felt at home and knew my wedding would be beautiful! I really loved the outside ceremony site but I also loved the inside ceremony option in the ballroom if the weather didnt go my way! I would recommend Carl House to all of my friends and family! It was perfect!

Dreams DO come true!!

5/ 5

All that I knew that I wanted in a wedding venue was an intimate, old, colonial home. We hit the jackpot with the Carl House!! My husband really didn’t want a traditional wedding until I showed him the Carl House. Not only did we get the antique home feel, we got an outstanding wedding coordinator in Nicole, excellent and attentive service staff throughout the day and remarkable catering! The home itself requires little decoration due to its grandeur, elegance and well kept grounds. That’s exactly what I wanted- a timeless venue for our timeless day. My husband was out of town through much of the planning time (only 3 months), but Nicole was most fantastic in guiding me through decisions and didn’t allow me to get too caught up. The sales team was accommodating in moving our rental time earlier in the day because of my concern for traveling guests. On our wedding day, Nicole did an amazing job of handling my outside vendors, getting them all set and keeping me calm through the hiccups (of no fault of the Carl House). Her goal was to make my day all that I dreamed it to be at whatever the effort. I would recommend the Carl House and Nicole to anyone wanting a stress-free and beautiful wedding venue!!!

Catering with Style

5/ 5

Carl House provided off-site catering for my wedding for 130 guests on October 4th. From the very beginning of my experience with them, they were the perfect mix of professionalism and kindness. BB and Kimberly couldn’t have been more helpful and made the entire process as painless as possible. We received a number of comments on the fine quality of the food and the willingness of the staff to make everything just right. Thank you for a job well done!

Amazing people and venue!

5/ 5

My husband and I visited several venues in our search for the perfect place to host our wedding. Carl House had it all. This venue is beautiful inside and out and the people could not have been more helpful or friendly. Every time we visited, we felt like top priority and not just like another excited couple. My only complaint was that the champagne toast we paid extra for was not served in time for our toasts and many of the guests never received it at all. Bypass that and you’ll have an incredible wedding that all of your guests will rave about!
