Absolutely blown away by the beauty of this venue. Have your wedding reception on the poolside / grass area! My wife and I did this as opposed to the event hall and we LOVED it. Also, have your rehearsal dinner here on the golf course patio. The moment the sun starts to set, the greenery, mountain view, and the market lights turn on some sort of magical feel. I know I sound corny, but you have to see it to believe it. Use Yvette Lynch as your day-of coordinator! She will NOT let you down and I guarantee she will amaze you with her organization. If you use the poolside / grass area for your wedding, ask Yvette about using the ceremony area--as long as no other weddings are hosted that day, you should be able to use that spot too. The lodging is spectacular--take a look inside and you'll see yourself. Book the king suite bungalow for the night (bride+groom) and you won't regret it. As a whole, for the amount you spend for the venue, it truly is worth the bang for your buck.Sent on 10/07/2016

There really are no words to describe just how wonderful our wedding was at Carlton Oaks. But! For the sake of reviewing, I can spare a few main points highlighting how awesome this place is. :)Sent on 05/10/2019
My now-husband and I booked in March 2018, exactly 1 year before out March 30, 2019 wedding. We went in for a tour, and as soon as I saw the beautiful garden area where the ceremonies are typically held, I was sold immediately. Pictures really don't do the place justice, it was a perfect fit for our 150 guest garden wedding. Our reception area, the Crest Room, was great, too. It's an awesome blank canvas and can accommodate practically any vision you may have for your wedding theme.
Another wonderful thing about Carlton Oaks is that it's kind of a one-stop-shop type of place. I thought I would have to search extensively for a bunch of separate vendors, but this place has so much to offer, from ceremony/reception site, catering, day-of services, etc. On top of that, everyone (the staff, catering managers, coordinators, etc) was so kind and professional to work with, and the quality of the service we received was outstanding. From the day we booked, to our yummy tasting consultations, to the day of our wedding, everything far exceeded our expectations.
Finally, I can't conclude this without mentioning that Shannon (our main point of contact for our wedding and our day-of coordinator) is THE BEST! She was literally with us from the very start, and I honestly credit her for making our wedding as perfect as it was. She is a dream to work with, extremely attentive, accommodating, and will jump through hoops to make your wedding visions a reality. You can really see and feel how passionate she is about what she does, and that's exactly the type of person you want backing you up on your big day!

I am so happy that we chose Carlton Oaks as our wedding venue. The ceremony site is beautiful and the Crest room was exactly what we were looking for for our reception. It's so convenient because everything is in one place, ceremony, reception, bridal suite and hotel rooms. We looked at so many other vendors and Carlton Oaks was the best value for what you get. I was a little worried when Yvette left about 5 months before our wedding, but Zandra took over as catering manager and she is amazing. She is very sweet and so easy to work. She made sure to answer all of our questions and always did her best to accommodate all of our requests. Even the little things, like having water and snacks waiting for us on the golf cart after our ceremony, really made the difference. Everyone also complimented the food we had for dinner, which was the tri tip and stuffed chicken with alfredo sauce. I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone planning a wedding or event.Sent on 11/21/2017
