Bernardus Lodge is one of my favorite venues for a wedding or vow renewal. Their wedding site is beautiful surrounded by vineyards and gardens with roses and fountains. The wedding party stands on a raised platform so everyone is able to see and hear the ceremony well. And the people who work there, from the guys who greet you when you arrive to everyone in the Lodge, are dedicated to customer service. Bernardus is a gem to be treasured!
I have had many Brides have their wedding at Bernardus Lodge and have attended weddings there myself. It's an amazing place, professional staff, and you won't be disappointed. My son also has his wedding here. Cathy Montante, Collezione Fortuna Fashion Boutique and Bridals, Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA 93921, www.collezionefortuna.com
This is one of my most favorite venues. It is so beautiful and the staff takes such great care of all my clients. Working with their professional, friendly, and knowledgeable coordinators makes the day go smooth. Their new guest rooms and remodel make the property amazing. Don't forget to enjoy their spa!
