"We just had our wedding here and my (now) husband and I were very, very impressed with how well-organized, friendly and attentive the staff was!! Jennifer, the director, gets IT DONE! The food was ABSOLUTELY amazing. We got the Cajun style buffet and the tilapia and chicken were to die for!!! We didn’t have to spend as much on decor because the venue really does speak for itself!! Well worth the investment we put into the wedding!!"

"The Carlisle Room is an absolutely beautiful, timeless venue in Downtown Dallas. It was the first venue I looked at and I knew it was what I wanted. The venue itself has so much to offer - they offer just about everything in house, from chairs, linens, catering, even the stage rental, which made everything so easy.
Beyond the Box Catering was amazing - the food was great and they had such a large range of options and were so accommodating, letting us mix and match different things.
The venue itself it classic and elegant, one of the things I loved most was that there wasn't much additional décor needed to make the space look amazing . With just the basics - linens, flowers and a few small touches the space was absolutely amazing. It also offers a ton of great little spots for beautiful, unique photos.
The Venue team is incredible as well. Jennifer was so helpful and so responsive throughout the entire planning process, and she worked so well with my wedding planner as well. The whole venue team helped make the day absolutely perfect and seamless, everything went so well and our guests had the best time." - Jamie E., 2021 Bride
"Our wedding at The Carlisle Room was absolutely perfect. Jennifer was incredibly helpful from our initial booking process through wedding day. The Venue looked beautiful and the whole day ran smoothly. The staff was wonderful and the food was great! We are so happy we picked The Carlisle Room for our wedding, it was everything we hoped it would be!" - Jaime & Zach, April 2021 Wedding
"The Carlisle Room is a truly spectacular wedding venue!! We wanted something grand and timeless, and it delivered! The space is stunning--which made decorating easy and simple because it really does not need much! Jennifer and the staff were also a dream to work with. Jennifer was so helpful and responsive, and the wedding went off perfectly! We received so many compliments about how beautiful the venue was (a true hidden gem in Dallas), how delicious the food was, and how great the staff was. Even more, the Carlisle Room makes wedding planning so easy because they coordinate all of the rentals, linens, staff, catering, and bar! I could not recommend this venue enough!"

"We loved every detail of our wedding at the Carlisle Room. Jennifer and each one of the “day of” staff was very helpful in making our special day perfect!" Jenny V., Bride
"The venue was gorgeous. The staff was amazing and so helpful. I loved every bit of my wedding. I would highly recommend The Carlisle to anyone looking to have a perfect wedding experience!" - Kaylee K., October 2020 Bride
"We hosted our wedding ceremony and reception at The Carlisle Room. We chose the space based on its awesome downtown location, having both (but separate) ceremony and reception space, unique and historical design and architecture, and the items included. We loved that we needed minimal décor and “extras” to make both the ceremony and reception space beautiful. The Carlisle Room + Beyond the Box provides the seating (although we did splurge for the $7 per chair for the gold chiavari reception chairs), drink and plate-ware, and tables, so few rentals are needed (linens and centerpieces). Jennifer was helpful and knowledgeable about the space. Our friends and family thought the space was stunning and a perfect size for our 143 guest count (~15 tables). We would definitely recommend The Carlisle Room if you’re looking for a cool downtown wedding (and delicious food from Beyond the Box)." - Sara F., 2020 Bride
"When we were looking for a venue to get married in, we knew we wanted something with history. We researched a lot of places and did some visits. We happened to drive by The Carlisle Room after one of our visits, peeked in, and knew right then and there that this was the place before we even visited! From the moment we visited up until the wedding day, everything went smoothly. There was constant communication, questions answered, and only positivity! We had no complaints and were soooo happy! This was the place for us! On our wedding day, everything looked so beautiful with the accents of the this historical venue, and everything ran without a hitch! If you are looking for an Art-Deco architecture with a modern flare, this is the place for you!" - 2020 Brittany S., Bride
"The Carlisle Room was everything I had dreamed of and more. The venue is historical, elegant, and classy. We did not have to add much decoration to the room since it already has so much of its own detail built into the tall ceilings, walls, and marble floor. The space has so much to offer, with downstairs space for a ceremony, bridal suite, and grooms room. Beyond the Box is the exclusive caterer for the venue, which was a relief because their food and service are unmatched. Jennifer was so responsive, easy to work with, and helpful throughout the whole processes."
- Marie F., 2020 Bride
"I can't say enough wonderful things about the Carlisle Room. First off, the food was incredible. If you're getting nervous about not being able to use an outside caterer - don't be.. We got SO many compliments from our family and friends. It was amazing. We decided to do a combo of different buffets for dinner plus a big antipasto spread and passed apps beforehand. Literally everything was a hit. Further, the venue itself is beautiful, the service is amazing, and everyone was super friendly and accommodating. We had drinks and appetizers waiting for us in the bridal room right after the ceremony, the bartenders were super personable and they poured a good drink! Jennifer our coordinator was fantastic and didn't miss a beat. Highly recommend." - Gina S., Bride
"The Carlisle Room is stunning! Jennifer Moore was a delight to work with and made all the overwhelming decisions seem so much easier. The food was amazing and the staff was impeccable. This hidden gem is the perfect place to celebrate a wedding or any other special occasion." - Kendall M., Bride
"The Carlisle Room was the perfect venue for our wedding. The booking process was very straightforward, and Jennifer was great to work with. She was patient with us every step of the way and answered all of our questions. The venue is absolutely stunning, between the striking white ceremony room and the gorgeous reception space. We really loved the aesthetic created by the high ceilings and art deco architecture. Jennifer and team were very flexible with regard to the floor plan, and gave us complete agency. The fact that we were able to hold the ceremony and reception in the same space was the icing on the cake! Another great aspect of The Carlisle Room is the catering. They are affiliated with Beyond the Box, whose food is delicious. They offer a full spectrum of options for all budgets and tastes. Our guests absolutely raved about the food. Very, very delicious. There are dozens of hotels near the venue, making coordination of out of town guests a breeze. CR also allows you to rent a parking lot for guests who are commuting. Everything about the venue was user-friendly" - Jessica, Bride
"The Carlisle Room went above and beyond everything I could have hoped for my wedding day! The venue is absolutely stunning and so unique! All of my guests are still talking about it! The food and drinks are amazing! The staff is beyond wonderful, Jennifer and her whole team were everything you hope for in a wedding team! From the very beginning they were so accommodating, answered all the questions we had and did so in a timely manner, to the day of made sure every detail was perfect! Everything was exceptional and I could not recommend this venue enough! They made our wedding day everything we could have dreamed!" -Hannah, Bride
"The Carlisle Room was PERFECT!!! It’s historic, Art Deco decor gives it a natural beauty you don’t have add much to for your photos to turn out looking like a million bucks. Jennifer was our coordinator and she made everything easy from beginning to end. They coordinate the food, alcohol, tables, chairs, linens, setup, take down, so you and your family just get to show up and enjoy! I would recommend The Carlisle Room to anyone and everyone. You won’t find this value anywhere else!" - Marlee, Bride
"We just had our wedding here and everything was perfect. The food was excellent (and we're all foodies so we were surprised and impressed), we had shrimp pasta bake, pot roast, caramelized onion mashed potatoes, green beans (not the casserole), salad and rolls. People were raving about the food and wanting seconds. The venue was beautiful. We got married in the downstairs ceremony room with 176 people, it looked great. It's a beautiful room with a very long aisle which is fun. The reception area is gorgeous and grand. We tore the dance floor up all night (not literally, it still looks as lovely as ever). I would recommend this venue to everyone. The planning process was also very easy. Jennifer was so easy to work with and responsive. We had the perfect wedding day, literally everything was perfect, it was amazing. Thank you to The Carlisle Room!" - Emily Black-Roth, Bride
"My wedding reception was held at The Carlisle Room and I absolutely loved this venue! The first time my husband and I visited this venue, we knew it was the one. It is the most beautiful venue with so much elegance that minimal decorations are needed. Jennifer helped us out tremendously and was very easy to get in touch with. The venue does have its own catering and the food is amazing! We chose the Cajun buffet and I still dream about the food. We could not have been happier with how the venue looked the night of our wedding. We were beyond happy! Thank you to the management of the Carlisle Room for all your help!" - Rashmi K., Bride

"The Carlisle Room was everything we wanted and more for our big wedding weekend. It is so budget friendly. Everything about it. I hope it stays this way because by the time we went to tour TCR we were so defeated with ridiculous price tags in DFW proper. But THANKFULLY we found TCR! It is a venue with character. So you really don't need to do a lot. The natural ledges/cocktail rounds were everyone favorite parts. It made for a casual/laid environment in formal dresses. The entire staff was incredible. I am still receiving compliments on the bartenders, security guards & wait staff. Hats off to Jennifer and her team for making the entire process so enjoyable! Oh and their food was topnotch. It was even better the day of then when we did our testing! We did the chicken and pot roast - it was a full crowd pleaser. Along with their cheese and fruit display. We also got ready/stayed at The Statler Hotel. Being able to WALK from our hotel to the venue was just cheery on top. It made for such an easy weekend. We want to do it again!!" - Sean V., Groom
"We had the most memorable reception at The Carlisle Room on January 13, 2018. Jennifer was wonderful from the start! She was prompt to responding to any question, big or small. She also was very organized and kept us on the loop of everything! Our wedding was amazing and all of our guests have given us great compliments. The menu selection is very good as well. If you want to have a big reception in Downtown Dallas, The Carlisle Room is the place to have it !" - Gaby P., Bride
"Our wedding was absolutely beautiful! This venue is breathtaking! My photos are going to be amazing! I solely booked this venue on Jennifer's customer service! Thank you for making our wedding perfect!" - Bride
"The Carlisle Room is a dream to get married or have a party at. The staff is so accommodating, helpful, friendly, and will be sure to make your day a very special and memorable one...even if it means diving in the dumpster to find your cake topper that accidentally got thrown away! Jennifer, who is the Event Manager is always very quick to respond to any little or big questions you have and will do her very best to make sure your menu is exactly what you want it to be. She made the whole process seamless and was always very friendly also!" - Fiona-Lise C., Bride
"Wow! We had the best time at The Carlisle Room. From first meeting Jennifer, we had the best experience. She is SOOOOO responsive and helpful. She is understanding and empathetic.
