About Us

The idea for The Carriage House started when my daughter, Abbie, got married almost 10 years ago. While attending the Bridal Extravaganza, the realization came to me that all of this fun wedding stuff was actually a huge, incredible industry.

I had been working for a medical practice for 15 years and they were merging with a large national corporation. I didn’t want to be in a corporate environment so I began thinking of what my “second act” in life could look like. My husband and I began our research and we grew our ideas into this magnificent wedding venue — our chandelier barn — The Carriage House.

Our reviews are the story of our success. We make every couple feel as if their wedding day at our venue is our one and only. Every wedding is so special, from the couple’s unique story to the guests that attend. We are truly blessed to be a part of these most special days and privileged to meet so many wonderful couples, their families & friends, and vendors too.

On your wedding day, a talented group of vendors merge into one team to bring together your vision and wedding magic happens.

There is no doubt in my mind that my heart was made for the wedding industry. The excitement, anticipation, the planning, creating & execution is where my passion lies. My favorite part of the process is seeing couples embrace their uniqueness and letting their individuality as a couple come out in each event.

My favorite moment of the wedding day is when the bride is waiting for her cue to enter the chapel. There is so much love, anticipation, and joy in that sweet time.
