    Little Things

    Carmen's is a big wedding and banquet centre they do many weddings every year which means they know how to take care of all the little things before anything becomes a thing. They took care of every detail from building our light sculpture to taking me to oversee the entire ... View more wedding from a secret lookout to calm my nerves before the ceremony. Our guests raved about the food both the taste and the quantity. The dj played what was on the music list we were asked to provide and kept our dancing going all night. Our waitstaff and bar staff were smiling and efficient constantly serving and clearing away everything with precision. We loved our Carmen's wedding.

    I hosted my bridal shower and wedding at Carmens. Andi and Laura were exceptional and professional. They took the time to meet and were extremely responsive to emails and calls.

    My daughter was married August 4th and had her reception at the C hotel. Everything was great until the DJ came on scene. She did not have the couple's play list and would not do requests as according her they weren't in her program. Also she spoke in a very quiet unintellagle ...

She was a waste of time and energy. A cell phone playing music would have been better. Very disappointed

    We got married at Carmen's the Lakeview and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding. The food was amazing, the hall was gorgeous and the staff really helped us stay stress free! Amber was a delight to work with, and she had us laughing the entire time. Richard and Karen ... View more were excellent in their care of us. I feel that the staff went above and beyond (including but not limited to getting me Advil for my headache at the wedding). If we could do it over, we would absolutely pick the Lakeview again. Our guests loved the evening and were giving us compliments all night.
