Our wedding at Carmel Valley Ranch was nearly perfect. Rachel, the catering manager, went above and beyond for us and our guests. Our wedding was just about 100 people, and we got married on the Valley Lawn and had our reception in the Clubhouse. Carmel Valley Ranch has such a relaxed yet sophisticated atmosphere. They have an amazing menu with seasonal food and delicious drinks. Most of our guests stayed on property which added to the closeness of the weekend. Everyone was so helpful and supportive, Rachel even helped me book a few things for our California Coast honeymoon! There are so many little details that I could go on and on about, but overall the experience of getting married there and working with Rachel made our wedding more than we could have hoped for.

Location:
CVR is set in an absolutely stunning area, with beautiful landscaping everywhere you look, and the breathtaking hills as the backdrop. We chose the Vineyard Lawn for our ceremony site – I cried when we first stepped onto the lawn in our initial visit, so I knew it was THE place. The banquet hall in the lodge was also beautiful – it did not feel like a typical banquet hall, and there was a lovely patio with a fountain for the cocktail hour. There are endless areas to take photographs – from the vineyard, to the lavender fields, to the organic garden, and any of the tree-lined roads, all made for beautiful pictures.

Food:
CVR’s food was unbeatable. We had numerous guests rave about how it was the best steak they ever had, but every dish was creative, high quality, and most importantly, delicious. It was very difficult to choose our menu because everything was so yummy! We are huge supporters of farm-to-table, and CVR takes pride in sourcing ingredients locally – even as local as from their own garden!

Service:
I worked with Rachel and Tracy for my wedding, and they were amazing. Rachel was responsive and attentive to all my questions leading up to the day. She offered very detailed answers to my questions, and always responded within a day or two. At the wedding weekend, Tracy was an amazing day-of coordinator. She was so patient when one of the wedding party members was late for the rehearsal – we never felt rushed. On the wedding day, she handled all the crazy demands and running-around with grace and ease. When I got a stain on my gown, she was ready immediately with a Tide pen! She was a helpful guide in taking us from place-to-place, and she worked seamlessly with all our vendors to keep us on schedule. We also brought most of our own decorations, and she did a fantastic job of setting up everything. It was a pleasure to work with the catering team to make my wedding day an absolute dream come true.

My husband and I had our reception here and it was beyond what I imagined. We worked with two wedding coordinators Janice and Kevin, over the year and a half planning our cocktail hour(s) and reception. Janice took the time to listen to what we wanted, envisioned what we wanted, added more ideas to what we wanted, and clearly, exhibited what we wanted. It was absolutely perfect. Janice is very down to earth, understands your wedding needs, and makes it happen no matter what it takes. If she doesn't have what you are looking for, she will find it. And if one of your ideas, has gone down hill, she picks you back up along with the help of her assistant Kevin. They are an amazing team, and made our dream come true. The entire staff that worked our reception was respectful and fun, and they even said they had a good time! The Chef is amazing - food was absolutely perfect, and the staff keeps the Bride & Groom well equipped with drinks a plenty! The bar even stayed open late for us and our guests! It was a magical weekend, and we can thank Janice and her staff enough for making it so!
