    Just amazing!

    If I could give 100 stars I would. Sandra and Luke were helpful, kind and professional. On the wedding day they noticed my husband's uncle needed help getting around and drove him to the ceremony space in a golf cart. The venue itself is absolutely beautiful and well manicured. It's really breathtaking. The bathrooms and bridal cabin are kept clean and pristine. I'm really glad I chose this the carvers cottage.

    The Carvers Cottage's reply:

    Thanks so much Chantel, it was a pleasure hosting your wedding at the carvers cottage and meeting your family. We wish you a blessed marriage filled with everlasting love and happiness Luke and Sandi

    Intimate Wedding

    Sandra and Luke were very professional and flexible for our wedding day. Gorgeous venue for unique pictures and a scenic ceremony. The sign Luke carved for us is absolutely amazing.

    Very professional and homey

    Sandra and Luke really are amazing and so so kind. Not only do they offer their home for your special day, they get involved to assist in any way they can. I received many compliments on this venue choice and we even get a parting gift from them!

    We're not just giving them 5 stars lightly.
    Anyone who has been to Carver's Cottage will know that they deserve it.
    Right from the onset, owners Luke & Sandra were warm and accommodating - allowing us to go there as much as we wanted and even suggesting we take engagement pictures there.

    The land is big and beautiful. The pictures are beautiful, but they do not do it justice. You have to go there in person to appreciate just how beautiful it is. We've been raving about it and now our guests are raving about it.

    Luke & Sandra were invited as guests, but instead they were at our service the whole day, assisting the other vendors with all their needs - even though this was not expected of them. They did all with genuine smiles too - they got to enjoy the wedding from a different perspective. It was beautiful to watch and experience.

    They are also very talented carvers and we were able to use their cake stand which, together with the name sign and table numbers they made for us, fit in nicely with our rustic elegance theme.

    It was such a beautiful day and they made it all so easy and well worth it.

    Thank you!
