18 Carey Institute for Global Good Reviews
Married on 08/06/2016
Carey Institute was absolutely the best place to have our wedding! We had the whole place to ourselves as we filled the premise with our guests. It has abundant of spaces for activities- as we did ... Read more yoga on the hill, taiko in the tent, parade from ceremony to cocktail, warm bonfires, and lots and lots of dancing until the stars came out. It was a magical place where family and friends come together and celebrate

Outstanding is an understatement
Two weeks later, and I am still on cloud 9. The Carey staff was absolutely spectacular! Our wedding weekend was even better than we could have ever expected. Every detail was thought of and handled by ... Read more Tina and her staff. Tina is exceptional and is a master of coordination. If you are deciding between a one day wedding and a weekend wedding, I highly suggest a full weekend wedding at the Carey. There was time to enjoy every moment and catch up with every guest. It was important for us to have sleeping arraignments for our guests and the Carey provided above and beyond service. Being able to stay in one location eliminated any travel time/coordination between events and it eliminated any worries of driving after enjoying a night of beverages. The accommodations were extremely clean and buildings and grounds were well taken care of. Because Tina was thorough, she had understood and captured all of our requests. Everything was covered and there were simply no stresses. We had visited the Carey in all seasons and there was no doubt that no matter the weather, we would be able to capture beautiful photos to document our day. We were lucky enough to have the sun come out for the ceremony over looking the valley but if we were sent inside, we would have had an equally beautiful ceremony. The food needs it’s own review and if I could give more than 5 stars I would! Chef John was outstanding and so easy to work with! He is extremely professional and talented! I’ve never seen a bbq so elegant and I’ve never had morning eggs so rich and delicious. We decided to have our reception served family style and everyone loved the home style feel as meals as a family don’t happen as much as we’d all like. It was all just perfect. Everything about The Carey Institute exceeded our expectations and I can’t wait wait to go back for a brewery visit!

To cut to the chase: if you are able to have your wedding at the Carey Institute, just book it now. Everything about it- the staff, the food, the grounds, the organization, the houses, the scenery - ... Read more is absolutely incredible. Our wedding weekend was amazing because of the Carey Institute. It was so great that we could have a whole weekend with our guests all in one, gorgeous place. Beyond the physical beauty is the amazing staff. We worked with Tina, the coordinator, Kathe, the front office manager, and John, the chef, throughout our planning. Fantastic is an understatement. All three (and all the other staff members) were so helpful, dedicated, accommodating, and kind. We had a wishlist of things for the wedding, and they accommodated every one easily. It was clear that they wanted us to have an incredible weekend, and they did everything in their power to make it happen for us. They were all so wonderful to work with. And they were all so organized. It felt like we were all one team working towards the same goal- an incredible weekend. We need to dedicate an entire paragraph just to the food. SO DELICIOUS. We were blown away by our tasting, and the food throughout the wedding weekend was just as good. Everything, from the breakfast pastries, to the main courses at dinner, to the soup at lunch, to the desserts, to the sides for all meals- incredible. Our guests are still talking about the food. Our wedding weekend was obviously always going to be special for us, but everyone and everything at the Carey Institute made it so much more special by their obvious care. We never felt like just another wedding. Everything was organized, everyone was so responsive, the food and drinks were amazing, and the staff were all incredible. It was so worth every penny. Thank you so much, Tina, Kathe, John, and everyone at the Carey Institute for planning a weekend with us that we and our loved ones will never forget.
