Wedding Rentals List

Full Package

When you book your special day with us, you’ll get complete access to the inside and outside areas of The Carriage House. Hold your ceremony outside in our beautifully landscaped gardens, or have your ceremony and reception inside, where you’ll find the original stone walls, exposed wooden beams and grand fireplaces. Unlike at other venues, you get access to the building on the evening before the event, so that you may have a rehearsal, decorate and make other preparations.

Ceremony Only

With this option, you’ll have the use of our building and grounds for the wedding ceremony of your dreams. Prepare for your event on the evening before, with full access to hold a rehearsal, decorate and make other preparations.

Reception Only

Imagine throwing a lavish reception inside The Carriage House, with its original stone walls and exposed beams, dancing and chatting beside the grand fireplace. Outside The Carriage House, celebrate your union your way, on our tree-lined grounds, near colorful gardens, a soothing waterfall, and a landscaped brick patio. This option gives you full use of our building and grounds, with access to the building on the evening before, so you may decorate and make other preparations.

Happy Clients

“Married here in 1993—still going strong 26 years later! Beautiful, kind-hearted, warm, unique, special place (and people) to help begin a lifetime partnership.”—Gregory M.
“This is my third visit and I absolutely love the Carriage House. I have recommended it to all my friends and former co-workers.”—Forest H.
“We booked this venue for our November 2016 wedding. The coordinator helping us was very flexible, professional, and able to answer all of our questions.”
“We got married under their gazebo, which is beautiful and did not need any decorations added. The feel of our wedding was fairly casual and the stone walls, wood pillars, and former stables made it feel homey and rustic.”—Mary Kate
