My husband and I recently got married at The Crossings At Carlsbad, and couldn't be happier with our venue selection!! From the very start, we were assigned someone to e-mail or call with all of our questions/concerns. We had Becca Hartegan as our day of coordinator, and were VERY impressed with her responsiveness to e-mails, patience with numerous questions, and overall professionalism when it came to her job. Becca would always answer any question we had for her, and in a quick manner. The Crossings At Carlsbad was very flexible when it came to us wanting to set up for our wedding the evening prior at our rehearsal, since no other event was occurring that evening. This allowed us to be a little more stress free the morning of our wedding. The service was excellent, both from what I witnessed as the bride, as well as what I have heard from guests. As soon as our ceremony had ended, everyone was instantly greeted with champagne/mimosas. From what I heard from guests, there were more than enough appetizers to go around at cocktail hour. The food that was included in our package was INCREDIBLE! Everyone was impressed by it's quality, temperature, and arrival time. The scenery for the ceremony location at the Crossings is breathtaking, and the reception room is absolutely gorgeous. If we were to choose a venue all over again, it would definitely be the Crossings, and we would recommend this to anyone looking to get married!

My husband and I had our dream wedding at The Crossings at Carlsbad. The venue was so beautiful and everything looked better than I had even envisioned. Our coordinator, Lindsey Bockoven, was so organized and at the same time a calming presence. The service was excellent and food was delicious. We had our ceremony out on the lawn with a view of the ocean. Our reception was inside but the view is still spectacular from the restaurant. The Crossings took care of so many of our wedding needs, it made the planning process so enjoyable. Our family and friends are still raving about how wonderful the location was and how much fun they had.

Selecting The Crossings for our wedding was the best decision! We had the greatest day and we've heard from so many family and friends that they did too. Lindsey Bockoven, who is an Events and Sales Manager at The Crossings (and also our wedding coordinator), kept us calm and updated through the entire process. She was extremely easy to work with, and her positive attitude was very refreshing throughout the entire planning process. We were so lucky to have her help! Everyone at The Crossings was extremely accommodating, professional and flexible throughout our entire wedding planning process and the day of the wedding. And, although we've never done this before... we don't think the wedding could have gone any better!

We had our wedding with 130 of our loved ones and closest friends at the Crossings at Carlsbad on April 12, 2014. Our wedding from start to finish was absolutely perfect. When we chose the Crossings as our venue almost a year ago, we knew we were in good hands. The staff was friendly and helpful, the surroundings were beautiful and the wedding packages were generous and customizable to ensure our day was everything we wanted it to be. Throughout our year long planning process, we worked closely with our venue coordinator Lindsey Brockoven to plan every detail. She was helpful, kind, knowledgable and met every one of my questions and requests with "Sure!" and "No problem!" She is everything one could wish for in a coordinator: calm, cool and collected, and knows how to create a perfect, seamless day. Our quests were blown away by the beauty of the venue and the delicious menu. Our other vendors were almost all chosen from the Crossings preferred vendor list, and every single one was great. It's no wonder they have good vendors—people love working with the Crossings! We are so very thankful we chose to have our wedding at the Crossings.

There are not enough ways I can express my gratitude to The Crossings for all that they did in the months leading up to, and the day of our wedding. Choosing this venue as the place to have our wedding and reception was by the far the best decision we could have made. This place has the most incredible Wedding Packages to insure that you will get the most out of your budget. From the moment we expressed interest, the girls at the Crossings (Sara and Lindsey) made us feel important and appreciated. They were in constant communication with us through the months, and they were always there to answer questions, and send us information that would help with the planning process. We were even invited to try out the entrees to help with our menu selection. Needless to say, we were blown away by the presentation and the taste of the food. It is absolutely delicious. Hats off to our chef! Lindsey ended up being our Day of Coordinator, and she was fabulous in every sense of the word. She kept everything running smoothly, and made sure the day went off without a hitch. She was on top of every little detail, including the rehearsal, and we cannot thank her enough for all that she did. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect. From the breathtaking views of the ocean and foothills, to the gorgeous patio for cocktail hour, and the beautiful lighting for the reception. It was all executed with such precision and expertise. Our guests were raving about how stunning everything looked, and how the food was some of the best they had ever tasted at a wedding. The staff made everyone feel like a VIP, which was more than appreciated by all. The Crossings really knows how to put on an impressive wedding, and they truly helped create a lifetime of memories for us. We miss Lindsey, and the Crossings team already!

This venue is absolutely beautiful and Sara was such a pleasure to work with! We fell in love with The Crossings from the moment we walked in and are so happy we chose to have our wedding day here. The ceremony lawn is gorgeous, there's a great balcony for outdoor cocktail hour and the reception space is very unique with vaulted ceilings and large windows showcasing the amazing ocean/golf course views. They offer flexible packages that include everything which made the planning process a lot easier. We went out on the golf course for our bride/groom photos and there was great waterfall/bridge backdrops, which turned out stunning. The food was amazing too, our guests were raving about the appetizers/dinner. There's a couple hotels across the street, which was very convenient for all of our out of town guests and the bridal party.

The best part of it all though was the service! Sara was so helpful throughout the entire planning process. She genuinely cares about creating a magical wedding day. Her friendly personality, responsiveness and attention to detail really put us at ease. She was there to coordinate vendors and kept the timeline of events flowing nicely. We didn't worry once on our wedding day and were truly able to enjoy every moment.

Cannot say enough good things about The Crossings and Sara. You really exceeded our expectations and turned our wedding day dreams into a reality. Thanks for everything!! :)

This place will always have a special place in my heart. Truly fell in love with the place while looking for venues and could not have choosen any place better. First of all it was within our budget! And depending on when you sign your contract they have deals for booking ahead of time.The location was perfect, we got ready at the Sheraton across the street and for guests visiting the outlets and beaches are down the steet and Legoland is close by.
Sarah and Amanda are amazing to work with and always get to your emails in a timely manner. The food is really good too, we had the hardest time choosing our dishes during our tasting because they were all delicious! The servers are amazing, on the day of our wedding they made sure we were able to have some of the hor dourves we choose and had a plate prepared at our table! Driving up to the venue, I'm always in awe by how beautiful the building is! As for photos we didn't have to go far to have great backdrops for our photos, they have a ton of areas to take photos depending on your taste! Beautiful venue and from the patio area you can see the ocean!

We had our wedding here and it could not have been better! The moment we walked in, we both knew it was our venue with its character and charm; it wasn't a stuffy typical banquet hall. We loved the veranda and distant ocean views, the vaulted ceilings with the exposed trusses and the fireplace. My husband's a golf engineer and a golf course was the natural choice for our ceremony. It was gorgeous and the weather could not have been better! That said, we lucked out that there were just a couple clouds blocking the sun right behind where we stood so squinting wasn’t a problem, but this could potentially be a nuisance. Staff was great. We first met Sara Rader who was so helpful and genuine. Within a few months, they added a new wedding coordinator, Alexandra Clark, and she was awesome, too. She was responsive, open, and flexible. She has a great sense of humor and was a very calming soul (more for the rehearsal with than for the actual wedding day which was stress-free)! The wedding went off without a hitch! We missed cocktail hour because of pictures, but the staff brought us cocktails and our guests raved about the appetizers. Dinner was awesome and they even gave me an extra lobster tail from a guest’s plate that couldn't make it. If you love beer like I do, then you'll be happy to know the selection is really good (Stone IPA which was superb among others). We had a personal server who was very attentive and friendly. There was plenty of space for all the guests to feel comfortable (we had 150) including the veranda all night. At the end of the evening, we weren't pressured to rush the clean up (per family/friends who cleaned so we could see people). All in all, it was a 5-star night and there is not a single thing we would have changed. We stayed at The Sheraton (conveniently located within about a 5-10 minute stroll)! Thank you, Alex, and your stellar crew! Congrats to all you brides (& grooms, of course)!

We fell in love with this venue the moment we walked in. We started with a differnet cordinator, but I ended up enjoying working with Sara way better. She is so easy to get aa hold of and is very accomidating to make sure you day goes the way YOU want it to go. She did everything I asked and showed no discomfort in doing anything. We were never pressured for time or anything of that sort. The food was amazing! Everyone was like " OMG! that steak!" or "OMG! that chicken!" I loved how this placce was pretty much a one stop shop. They take care of linens, chairs, food, beverages, deserts and even include your cake as part of you pakage with local bakeries that have a deal with them. Our night was prefect and Sara was amazing and we would have not had it any other way!

The Crossings was a beautiful place to get married. My husband and I live in the Inland Empire and The Crossings acutally had the best prices anywhere around. That was especially surprising being so close to the ocean. Meredith was okay as our coordinator but decided to move to another golf course about a month before our wedding. However, Sara, the new coordinator, was way more attentive than Meredith. She answered all of our questions and handled everything beautifully on our wedding day. She even helped me calm my nerves when I thought it was going to rain on us. The food is phenomenal and nothing like you would expect from a golf course. Also a little tidbit, we had our wedding at around 4:30pm and the restaurant closes at about 7:00pm so we had the whole place to ourselves. Just something to think about when you're planning your wedding here. Just a beautiful place for a bride looking for a classic place to have your wedding.

I loved everything about The Crossings! When the old coordinator had left I was nervous that the details of my wedding would slip through the cracks seeing as the new coordinator, Meredith had more than her fair share of events to handle; however, not a single detail was over-looked! I was so impressed. We choose the Crossing because of its beautiful and unique banquet space and breathtaking ocean view ceremony site. All throughout the planning the staff was incredibly flexible, understanding and very pleasant to work with. The service was immaculate, they anticipated all of our guests need not to mention the food was delicious! We also used the vendors that they recommended and were so pleased. The Crossings was exactly what we wanted and we would recommend them to anyone!

We chose The Crossings because we got better meals for our guests for the reception for a better price than other places we'd checked out. We also liked the look and feel of the whole place. It was great working with Meredith, who was such a big help the day of.

the night was exactly what we had wanted and couldn't have asked for anything more. the staff was accomodating and extremely helpful. the food was great and the vendors we used were recommendations of the crossings and were a perfect match for us. finding the venue was probably the hardest part of the wedding planning, but we knew at our site inspection that the crossings was perfect for us. it just felt right and we are so happy with our decision.

This place is so great, its beautiful and in a great location! Meredith is amazing. She takes care of everything day-of, and will answer any questions you may have in preparation. She is super responsive by email (a requirement for me) and really knows what she is doing there. The food was amazing, everyone loved it! Don't let their everyday golf course food fool you, they have a separate caterer for weddings, and it was outstanding!
Everything is in packages, so you can start with one, and then add/subtract depending on what you would like to do. In my research, I thought their prices are reasonable. Also, the cake was included in our package, so I just had to go the baker they suggested. I also just had to pick out the linens (among lots of other things) with Meredith, no need to contact anyone else! She also did a candy buffet for me, it turned out beautiful!
This venue was perfect for us, and we are so happy with how everything turned out. I would HIGHLY recommend!

I can't say enough good things about The Crossings as a wedding venue! It was one of our favorite vendors and we received rave reviews from our guests. Where to begin? The room itself is gorgeous and not a typical banquet room with the beams, lighting and iron. The views are amazing--we had one of the prettiest sunsets I had ever seen on our wedding day so we lucked out but the ocean views and rolling hills are very pretty. The food was delicious, the top shelf bar selection is outstanding and they kept the entire wedding service running smoothly and on schedule. Even the bathrooms are pretty. There are many hotels in close proximity which is a bonus, one within walking distance.
Best of all was the service we experienced. We worked with Meredith and have maintained a friendship with her even long after our wedding was over--she is genuinely concerned about each and every couple's perfect wedding day and also, their marriage. She even offered an anniversary meal on the house--that was a very pleasant surprise. They were so accommodating with our requests and went well above and beyond our expectations--the satellite bar was a wonderful touch and an extra guest showed up and requested an upgrade in the meal and they did not charge us for that (from kids to adult). They are extremely flexible and answer all communication in a timely manner which definitely put my mind at ease. Best of all--their packages include everything so you are not nickel and dimed with the extras such as chairs or a room rental or even the cake. By the way, our cake was fabulous and so pretty!

I highly recommend The Crossings for a beautiful wedding day with excellent service beyond your expectations. They book up very quickly and for good reason--I think they are the best bang for your buck in North County.

We decided to get married at The Crossings because of it's amazing reception room and beautiful views of the ocean. After looking all over San Diego & Orange Counties, it was the best fit for what we were looking for.

Unfortunately, the Catering Manager we initially signed with left shortly after the new year. At first, we were worried, but Sarrah, the Food and Beverage Director, was so patient with us and understanding even though she was holding both positions and was way over-worked. The new coordinator, Meredith, was awesome. Everything worked out perfect in the end!

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. The food was unbelievably amazing, the service staff was attentive and responsive to our needs and they were quick on their feet with any of our last minute changes and needs. I would never hesitate to recommend The Crossings to anyone looking for the perfect location to get married!

We loved Meredith. Our wedding was awesome! It was a beautiful Saturday morning (inexpensive too!) and the setting was perfect. The food was provided and it was EVERYTHING we could have dreamed of. Everyone was talking about it for weeks. They even did an ice cream float station, at my request! The cake and catering was included in the price! It was phenomenal. The Crossings is a beautiful location but it was the staff that made it amazing. I am sure that Meredith is doing an amazing job wherever she is.

Lindsey Bockoven and her team at the Crossings are wonderful! From our first site visit to the day of-- we loved them. Since we were doing an outside reception with our own catering (yes it's allowed) we still felt very connected and appreciated for picking the site. The bar, however, is managed through them, but the price options are do-able. The day of went very well with just a few issues with my caterer, and I was very pleased with the way it turned out. The only, and absolute only small issue I had was the flameless candles that were put in lanterns on the table weren't turned on before hand... people had to turn their own on and my dad had to go around, so my only recommendation would be a little more attention to detail on the setup part, but that's also something I could have mentioned or recommended instead of assuming. You will NOT be disappointed with this venue!

I had my ceremony and reception at The Crossings and it was fabulous!

I highly recommend using them. The only thing is that the site coordinator (who was the greatest person and half the reason I picked it) is no longer there and she was a big part of the planning process. Hopefully they have hired someone with the same great qualifications though.

The only reason I didn't give them all 5s was that they didn't offer mics and speakers for the wedding ceremony, which is fine, but they didn't tell me until a week before, so I had to scramble a bit to rent the AV equip. Just wished I would have known sooner, especially since their wedding fee isn't the cheapest, i just assumed it was included.

The before and during part of our reception was great. We enjoyed the service during the planning process and during the reception. The atmosphere and food was good too.

However, once the checks had been cashed and the reception had ended, the service ended. I was highly disappointed in the lack of customer serivce and the poor business ethics and practice on pending issues after the reception. A true shame. They did not make any attempt to correct the wrong doing that they did after the fact. The aftermath is what is reflected in my ratings.

Although at the end of the day our wedding was perfect and beautiful, the responsiveness and level of professionalism at the Crossings was horrible. A week before the wedding we didn't even have a contract, and it was the most stressful part of planning the entire wedding. Calls weren't returned, emails went ignored, and the only way to get a response was to threaten to go someplace else two weeks before the event. DO NOT RECOMMEND.
