    Perfect venue!

    Me and my husband got married here on December 18th and we could not have asked for a better venue and staff. Nicole was lovely to work with, always responds immediately and was so great about answering all my questions. The staff was so helpful and kind, I highly recommend booking here! We loved every second of it.

    A dream come true!

    We just got married on November 6, 2021 at Carmel Mountain Ranch Estate and I couldn't imagine having our big day anywhere else!

    We first toured CMRE in August 2020 as the first venue we toured! We knew right away it was the place for us! We locked it in only a couple of weeks later. From August 2020 through November 2021, Nicole was the most amazing person to work with. She answered all of my questions and was so communicative.

    All areas of this venue are breathtaking. We were able to have our ceremony at the gazebo, our cocktail hour at the Estate Bar and our reception in the beautiful, open ballroom! The bridal suite was the most beautiful place to start my day, and my husband and his groomsmen had a great time in the groom's room. Both getting-ready rooms were so picturesque and look amazing in our photos!

    And the food- WOW! I had the mushroom ravioli and it was to die for. We also had steak and salmon on our menu and all the guests raved about it.

    CMRE felt intimate yet held our nearly 150 person wedding perfectly. It was romantic, stunning and the perfect place to start forever.

    Thank you to Nicole and the entire CMRE team for making our day so memorable and special!

    The most perfect venue EVER

    Carmel Mountain Ranch Estate was such a beautiful venue for our wedding! We got married on the Cypress Lawn and had the reception in the Mountain View Terrace room. It was magical! The planning process was easy, and Nicole was such a dream to work with! She is so patient, answered ALL my questions and made our dream wedding come true. Everyone commented on how beautiful the venue was, how kind and helpful the staff was, and how delicious their meal was. Thank you, Nicole and CMRE for making our wedding day so perfect! We loved this venue and would get married here again in a heartbeat!!
