Carl House, Extraordinary. Memorable. Events.
Built in 1903, award-winning Carl House is an elegant Southern antebellum-style home, meticulously remodeled with lavishly appointed interiors including a dramatic 4000 sq. ft. grand ballroom with porches, classic curved staircase and a charming gazebo on the property. Lush gardens and a rustic barn and surrounding pastureland all add to the ambiance of this private estate. With a host of awards, Carl House provides exquisite culinary services and offsite catering, in-house floral design, beautifully appointed bride and groom suites and inside or outside ceremony options.
“We’re often asked, why do so many brides choose Carl House over other beautiful venue locations. We realized that there are several reasons.
As an Owner operated venue, my heart and soul is in every aspect of Carl House and I’ve hired a team who love this business and brides and their families as much as I do. Understanding and executing your vision, along with meticulous attention to detail is our hallmark.
We work hard to earn your business by providing a great value with all the varied services we provide at Carl House. From in-house planning services to outstanding culinary and floral design, our aim is to help with as much or as little of the planning as you choose. We know the business and how to manage your investment carefully while providing high quality products and services in all we do.
With a background in theatre, I understand the need for a synchronized process in producing each and every event. My team and I assure that the flow of your event and all the behind the scenes details are managed with grace, care and flexibility as needed.
The uniqueness of our property speaks for itself. Our colorful and carefully manicured gardens, the historic re-build of our antebellum home, granite and wood fireplaces, spacious ballroom and classic curved staircase, which highlights your entrance as husband and wife, were all mindfully designed to accommodate your guests with gracious attention and care.
We look forward to the opportunity of serving you and your guests.”

“What can you say about a wedding venue that charges modest rates yet delivers an extravaganza? All you have to say is BB Webb and Carl House. My daughter selected the Carl House and my wife selected the wedding plan. After the wedding, you could not have convinced me that we didn’t spend a $100,000 … superior photographer, videographer, location, cake, food and wedding planner!!!! A five star event magical event … words could never adequately capture the memories created by BB and her staff!”
John Hunt, Father of the Bride

“I just cannot say enough good things about this place, the people, the food, the flowers and all involved!! Being a bride that was planning from 900 miles away was quite a feat, and came with its share of complications but my venue and everything involved was something I never had to worry about, knowing I was well taken care of and in fantastic hands.
I am just in awe at how sweet the entire Carl House team was along with the rest of the staff was. On the big day I was completely taken care of with my wedding director helping me with every little detail. We got the chicken and it was so yummy! Bruchetta appetizer was to die for too!! All of our guests raved about what a gorgeous venue and how smoothly everything went. If you are a bride looking for your dream venue, I have good news for you.. your search is over! THIS IS THE PLACE!”

“My new husband and I had our event at the Carl House. The estate is gorgeous beyond compare and once you have a look at the grounds there is no argument that the place is a beautiful spot to hold an event. But even more importantly, the level of service that was provided exceeded all expectations.
Every single guest complimented not only the food and the flowers (both done by the Carl House) but the entire wait staff was so sweet and attentive and helpful. Our wedding director was nothing short of a superwoman and expertly oversaw everything and made sure that the day went as planned and that everything was handled. I can't say enough kind words about how wonderful everyone at this establishment was to my family and guests and how blessed we felt to have them as part of our big day. Going anywhere else would be foolish!”
