Thank You so much for an amazing wedding reception. We still have people talking about it. Everything from the food, gardens to the service was above and beyond. The firemen are already talking about having a banquet there in the future. Thank you for making the whole process stressfree for me. It was a dream come true.

Best Wishes,
Holly and Dan
P.S. – We really enjoyed the special entrance and Firetruck

Dear Bruce and Staff,

We just celebrated our daughter’s wedding with you on July 2, 2011. Thanks to all of you the celebration was a perfect 10! Our guests were overwhelmingly surprised at the beauty of Carey Lake and the facilities. We had continual compliments throughout the evening as to how excellent the food was. Everyone at Carey Lake was so helpful, and at times I am sure were extra patient with this proud mother-of-the-bride. The evening was completed with an amazing fireworks display that completed a perfect wedding day. I could not have dreamed of anything better!

Bruce, your heart is in everything you do to make Carey Lake a dream come true. I certainly can’t imagine why anyone would go any place else for a wedding reception. On behalf of our families and guests we are most grateful for all you did and will cherish the memories you have helped us make.

Thanks again to everyone at Carey Lake.

Hey Bruce,

I just wanted to send you a note to thank you for an awesome Christmas Party. We all had a great time. I can’t believe the kids were so good both nights. Thank you for making it so special. We have been receiving rave reviews.

Did you find a gift that was left for Ava? Her Mom said she left it on the entry table in the hallway across from the coat check-in. You asked me for something before I left and I can’t remember what it was. Let me know and I’ll be happy to oblige.

Thanks again. Merry Christmas!!

Dear Bruce and Staff-

When we first got engaged, we had booked our wedding someplace else, not knowing that this place existed. The first time we stepped onto your property, we knew this was the place for our special day. We immediatley canceled our booking and came in the very next day to book with you.

Your help and words of encouragement up to and on our wedding day will never be forgotten. You and your staff did such a great job, that our guests are still raving about the food, service, and elegance you provided us.  A million thanks. You are now a part of our family.

Devin and Christine


How can we begin to thank you?! There wasn’t a question in our minds where we were to hold this event. Without a doubt we knew it would be in your hands. However, what we experienced was far more then we could ever have asked for. The DJ and light show were absolutely incredible! We could’t believe how gorgeous the hall looked with all those lights. That added such a beautiful touch to all the wedding photos too!

The photographer had been there quite a few times and she had definitly remarked that she had never seen the place look so wonderful. We could hardly settle ourselves enough to enjoy the meal and we never got a second to see the hors d’oeuvres. However, we heard rave reviews from almost half the guests how fantastic the food was from the beef wellingtons to the seafood newberg. The night just couldn’t have flown more perfectly and we couldn’t be more pleased with how everything turned out.

Neither of us expected such an elegant and classy wedding. I know you wouldn’t have had it any other way and I am glad that we left it in your hands. It was such an amazing night and we have you to thank for putting it together.

Thank you Bruce.
Sara and Joel Verstraete

For Bruce and the staff at Carey Lake,

Gino and I just want to thank you for giving us the perfect location to celebrate our fairy tale. From the gazebo to the Victorian setting we felt like royalty. From the 1st emotion to the last emotion it was everything we wanted it to be! Thank you for making our dream become a reality.

Luigi and Vicki Marseglia

Dear Bruce and everyone at Carey Lake,

You all did an amazing job our wedding was a success! Thank you for being flexible about the weather, the exceptional service, and the delicious food (compliments to the chef).

Dear Bruce and Staff

Just thought I would drop you a note- you will get our pictures soon in the mail. 12 days into our marriage we can’t stop raving about Carey Lake and all of you. Our day was SO incredible and perfect, not a single complaint- only that it went by way to fast!!! We had such a wonderful time, you made everything perfect- the food, the atmosphere, EVERYTHING. I don’t think we could ever thank you enough. You are such wonderful people and we will be visiting for sure.I just had to say love and thanks because you mean the world to us, we couldn’t have asked for more, you gave us everything we could have ever dreamed.
Lots of Love and Thanks

Amanda and Costa.

Dear Bruce-

Thank you so much for all your hard work to make our wedding as beautiful as it was. The food was great, the service was fantastic, but the place…how can you say thank you for making heaven on earth?

We will forever be in your debt for making our dream come true. We know how much you helped Bo and I out so we could have our dream wedding at Carey Lake and we can honestly tell you that you will be in our hearts forever.

Bo and Cindy

Dear Bruce and Stephanie-

Thank you for all of your help and support with Sarah’s benefit. It could not have gone so beautifully without the help of your staff.

It’s not every party house that can handle 300 people plus an extra 100 showing up. Your crew pulled it all together with food, seating and order, Very professional! Hats off to the chef, meatballs still talked about. Bruce, if we could only stop time.

Love Dave and Hope, Sarah and Adrew and Family

Greetings to Carey Lake’s Owners and Staff!

I just don’t know where to begin! I’d like to say thank you to everyone that participated in making my daughter’s wedding such a success!! We (and I mean everyone that attended the wedding) absolutely loved all of the food! Tim did such a great job cooking and then carving at the buffet table, he was so polite and helpful as were all the other staff in attendance!

To the owners, Mr. and Mrs. Bruce Carey, their presence at the wedding ceremony and reception was so helpful and accommodating and subtle that when I think back on the wedding, they were always around making everything go smoothly without looking as if they were orchestrating all the facets of the wedding and the reception, but of course, they were quietly making everything happen as it should!

I will never forget that day or the way everyone went out of their way to make my daughter’s wedding day a dream for her. My daughter was absolutely on cloud 9 for days after the wedding! She couldn’t stop talking about how wonderful everyone was and what a lovely time she and her friends had had!

I could go on and on about the way all the staff made us feel so welcome… about the bartenders, Eric and Ellen, who stayed with us and put up with piano playing and singing in the party house way past the time they should have closed shop and called it a day! (By the way, they make fantastic lemon drop martinis!!) But that is how everyone treated us that night…It will always be a beautiful memory in our lives!

Thank you all for the warm & professional service shown to our family and our friends at Carey Lake! We will definitely come back again and again! I feel as if we’re a part of your family now!

Thank you again,
The family of Beth (Christopher) Roselli

Bruce, Stephanie & Carey Lake Team,

From the moment we were shown around by Time, we knew Carey Lake was the perfect venue. Bruve and Stephanie, you’re the best! Tim your cooking is out of this world! We loved every moment start to finish! We love you and will be back!
