Congratulations!

Indulge in Our Exquisite Wedding Menu Packages

Thank you for requesting the menu and pricing information from Carmen's Country Inn and Gardens. We are a private and unique reception site, with all of our attention given to the smallest of details, ensuring that each moment of your reception is what you have envisioned for your ''special day."

The menu selections that we have enclosed are only a small part of what we create here. They are some of the most popular package requests. All pricing reflects the type of menu you select, the number of people that are attending the reception, the hours of bar you require, and even the day and time of year.

Most of our packages include Butler Service for your hors d’oeuvres selections. These are served in the beauty and tranquility of our "one of a kind" fountain gardens, as well as the inside seating area. Also included a champagne toast, a signature beverage that reflects our celebration for the Bride and Groom, set up on the garden veranda during cocktail hour, soup or your choice of salad, your entrée selections, side dishes, and dessert selection.

We even give you a gift of a wedding cake (you may select from 60 different styles), one of the many gifts you'll be receiving on your wedding day.

If you have a budget and a vision, we can help make your vision into reality. We are committed to fine food and good service provided at a "one of a kind" reception site. Enjoy our beautiful cedar-wood deck, which is just off our dance floor. Perfect for dancing under the stars!!!

We have put together our team of professionals who have all worked with us over the years. They are top in their field. Please contact them and let them know that we are proud to refer them.

Please remember, there is never a charge for the use of our fountain gardens, whether for your wedding nuptials or wedding photos.

We look forward to meeting you soon!
