I know firsthand the way this family owned business handles a situation involving their paying client when theft occurrs against their client. Can you imagine what you would feel if you walked into your ballroom discovering your centerpieces were tampered with? And at that point there would be nothing you could do? Ask yourself what would you expect from your venue if an outside vendor stole fresh flowers right out of your wedding centerpieces that you paid good money and the venue knew theft took place and did nothing?
You should feel comfortable and trust that a venue will act in good faith if an incident occurred involving you. IN my opinion, I feel management of The Carlisle did not. Isn't that what you would expect from your venue when you are paying so much money? For them to stick up for you when theft occurs involving your belongings?
You should be able to feel secure when you drop off wedding items ahead of time. In my opinion, the venue should act in good faith if an issue were to arise involving you. Always check to make sure your wedding items or centerpieces are stored safely and securely no other outside vendor has access to them. In my opinion, ask a lot of questions, make sure you know what their stand is when it comes to your wedding items and how secure they will be. As a Bride you want your items kept safe. You have enough to worry about. If it is possible I would get it in writing that if you drop off centerpieces ahead of time they will be safe from outside vendors or anybody else that might have access to them.
Because in reality if they don't, then how can you trust them to host one of the most important days of your life.
There are so many beautiful venues to select from. You can sense the integrity of a business, in my opinion, make sure the business that you are giving so much money to has your best interest at heart. If they don't, I would suggest to "move on" to a another venue that will.
Good Luck!

The Carlisle was phenomenal! Not only did we use this venue for our reception but wedding ceremony as well. One month before the wedding, my on-site coordinator at the Carlisle no longer worked at the venue and I was nervous about who ever they would place us with so close to the wedding, but I could not have been any more satisfied! ALL of the staff were AMAZING! The quality was great! The facility is up to date with a modern feel and I have heard nothing but great things about the food! They were beyond accommodating, making sure they met our every needs. The value was beyond comparison of any other local banquet hall with the same quality! The Carlisle has made my wedding experience one to remember. I am forever grateful for the amazing staff for taking care of us and ensuring that I had the wedding that I ALWAYS dreamed of. Thank you very much!

We just had our wedding at the Carlisle on Saturday, April 5th. Everything was wonderful! Megan was our planner, and she was so responsive and helpful with everything. The rooms turned out even more beautiful than I could have imagined. Our only little complaint is that not all tables got served cake. Other than that, it was amazing! :)

The Carlisle was a wonderful venue to have my wedding. I visited the Carlisle and just fell in love with the whole experience. The venue is elegant and has so many different options to make your wedding special. I actually booked my wedding on the first visit to the Carlisle. The event staff there was so accommodating and helpful. When I need assistance or had questions they were quick to respond with ideas. The communication was awesome! The food was unbelievable! The cooks and serving staff met my expectations by going above and beyond with service. I had over 250 guests and was serving a 5 course meal and ALL the food was out on time with great presentation. The Carlisle made special arrangements for the cake I wanted and also added in other great extras. The room was gorgeous and they worked so well with my wedding planner on the design, so that the room was exactly how I pictured it. I would recommend this venue to anyone. The entire package was just wonderful!
