Everything I could have dreamed of

Following my first meeting with Amanda at Carriage Greens I knew I was in good hands. She was always readily available, gave amazing suggestions, and helped to make my husband and I's vision for the ballroom come to life. Everything about our experience at CG was perfect. The...

Wonderful!

We were a little nervous about not having one coordinator assigned to our event but we had no problems at all. All of the staff members we worked with were helpful and able to answer our questions. Everything at the reception was set up according to our specifications. The food... Read More was delicious and they were able to accommodate the specific dietary needs for some of our guests.

Carriage Greens was wonderful!

The staff at Carriage Greens was wonderful and very accommodating from start to finish. They were always available to answer my questions (I had a lot!) and they even allowed us to bring in our favorite ice cream from an outside vendor as a late-night treat for our guests! They... Read More let us bring in all of our reception centerpieces and details a few days before the wedding which made storage and the hassle of bringing in all of these things the day of so much easier! The night of the wedding, the staff was amazing! They were extremely efficient and the bartenders had drinks ready for guests as they saw them walking up to the bar. If they didn't want a different type of drink, it was ready for them when they got there. We were able to take pictures along the beautiful golf course with no problem and used the gazebo for photos as well. The bridal room was a nice room to have to freshen up before the reception and to leave our belongings during the reception (we were the only wedding that night). Their costs were affordable compared to other reception venues that we looked at and the food was delicious (we had the chicken francaise). I would highly recommend Carriage Greens to anyone!

Carriage Greens was helpful, efficient, and a great value without being cheap.

This review is for the wedding ceremony and reception I had at Carriage Greens Country Club (CGCC) this November. The price and easy access location for out of town guests were what first drew me to this venue. After I had the chance to meet in person and talk with the banquet... Read More manager I participated in a food tasting. I immediately knew this was going to be a great pick. The staff is very flexible and accommodating so go in with a game plan and tell them what you have in mind – don’t be shy! The venue is elegant but in a way that is not overwhelming or distracting from a look you might want to achieve. I went with a “rustic autumn” look but I saw photos from other weddings there that were completely different and they all seemed to work well in the room. We had compliments from our guests about the friendliness of staff, servers and bartenders. The room we specifically used for the reception was a ball room divided in half by a wall partition. A birthday party was being celebrated at the same time with a live band but we hardly noticed that other event going on. I would highly recommend this venue – especially for the bride who wants to decorate/DIY her own wedding – CCGC offers the perfect canvas to paint your dream wedding on!

We decided to have our wedding at Carriage Greens after one of our friends had a wonderful wedding there years ago. The prices were very reasonable, and they were flexible on the timeline of the day of the wedding. They were also great for a smaller wedding because they did not... Read More require expensive minimums for Saturday weddings. The frustrating thing is that 2 weeks before my wedding I call up to get a final bill and I'm told they didn't save most of my wedding info. I had to go through our menu options yet again, as well as all of the other details. It was incredibly disorganized and there was always someone else to answer the phone that didn't know the details of our wedding. Our wedding day went as well as it did because of our outside vendors setting everything up for us. Carriage Greens had many other events going on that same night and we were told "we're very busy" when our dance floor wasn't opened on time. We had guests that waited over an hour to be served dinner, and some guests never even got cake. It was a beautiful venue, but had I known that our wedding wouldn't be a priority I would have paid more to have my wedding at another venue. Please be aware that you will not be assigned one main wedding coordinator throughout your planning process. You will have to do a lot of the follow up yourself.

A beautiful affordable wedding

Reviewed on 5/28/2013 Krista B

I had been to Carriage Greens for a wedding about 10 years ago and remembered I liked the atmosphere and the food. After meeting with one of the coordinators and taking the tour, my fiancé and I (who had seen other places, as well) decided it was the best venue for the type of... Read More wedding we wanted and for our fairly modest budget. On the wedding day, the staff did not disappoint. The room looked beautiful; the food received rave reviews; everyone had a great time; and everything went smoothly (as far as I know!). Throughout the process, the Carriage Greens staff went out of their way to adjust to our needs, including allowing us to bring in pizza for a late night snack. I would say there only were a few niggles--1) Leading up to the wedding, it sometimes was hard to get a hold of the staff by phone and e-mail and get a straight answer about certain things and 2) we gave them a bunch of long-burning votive candles to use for our centerpieces, but they ended up using their own candles instead on the day, and their candles burned out very quickly. Otherwise, we had a great reception and had many people tell us it was the best wedding they have been to!


Best Night Ever!

We had our wedding here on NYE , so we obviously did it indoors, where most people have outdoor weddings here. I would recommend this venue to everyone for any season. Seriously. The staff was overly helpful and friendly, from the bartenders to the owner to the bus boys.... Read More Planning with the people at Carriage Greens was a dream- almost made me feel like something was missing because it was so easy. I honestly didn't have to worry about anything the night of our wedding because everything was taken care of. We had our ceremony and reception here and had a spacious bridal room to hang out in beforehand and in between. Our reception room was completely set up and ready 3 days early and it was absolutely beautiful. The food exceeded expectations and we are seriously still getting emails from friends and family telling us how much they enjoyed it! I really can't say enough about Carriage Greens, and the best part of all is that their prices are totally reasonable. I highly recommend this place!!!!


Bang for Your Buck

Carriage Greens - great for a budget wedding!

Reviewed on 10/11/2011 Lindsey M

Carriage Greens was a beautiful setting for our wedding day. The affordable prices allowed us to have a big wedding on a budget that wasn't so big. The food was really great, the Grand Ballroom had a perfectly large dance floor and the bar was nice and large. My only... Read More constructive criticism would be that the banquet sales staff should be a bit more knowledgeable in general banquet information. I am sure I feel this way because I am an event planner myself and know more about the process than the average bride would, but a few times, I asked questions and was surprised they could not be answered with great ease (ie. are your round tables 60" or 72"?) It caused a bit of unnecessary stress in the planning process. That said, everything worked out in the end and I would recommend Carriage Greens to friends.

For our July 2011 wedding we were in the Grand Ballroom with 200+ people. We were very happy with the way everything turned out. The staff was all great to work with. From the little questions I would call with during the week, to the food tasting, and then on the big day...... Read More all very accommodating! It was great spot to have your wedding reception. We had enough space, a great, large dance floor, the chairs were pretty enough you didn't have to cover them, the food was delicious, and the bartenders were great!! What more could you ask for? The only downside was that there were some wedding crashers. A gift and a couple of cards were stolen, along with my husband's cell phone (which was in the bridal room), and a few guests' purses. More security in the room would have been great. Not sure if wedding venues offer this, but bride-to-bes beware this can happen at your reception.
