    Best Wedding Venue Ever!

    My husband and I had the honor of having our wedding at Carmel Mountain Ranch Estate last September (2019). We had looked at about 6 venues before we saw CMRE... and to be honest, the moment we parked in the lot and walked to the front of the building, I immediately knew this venue was the one! We toured the venue with Nicole (who is absolutely amazing and so sweet). From the outside ceremony site to the indoor reception hall... everything was absolutely stunning and beautiful. The natural light that came from the windows in the reception hall was a complete game-changer for me and my husband. We knew it was THE one. I have absolutely no regrets and would 1000 times choose CMRE as our wedding venue. Nicole, the event manager, was absolute joy to work with - she was so attentive and responsive to my non-stop questions. She was super supportive in all the decisions we had to make re: the venue and catering and all the little details. Little did I know that our wedding planner (Talissa) was also a manager for CMRE, so having both Talissa and Nicole on our wedding vendor team was amazing. They worked so well together and was always on point with everything. Everything this venue had to offer (wedding space, catering, service) all was 1000% and I couldnt have asked for anything more for our big day. Without CMRE , our wedding would not have been complete. We literally had the best day ever, and we wouldn't change anything about CMRE! If you are looking for wedding venue, I would highly recommend and encourage you to check out CMRE and reach out to them for a tour! CMRE, thank you for everything and for making our dream wedding come true!!!

    Genuinely a DREAM come true!

    I fell in love with this venue the moment I saw the french windows with gorgeous mountain views. I wanted an indoor venue as I was having a winter wedding in San Diego's wettest month, January (it actually poured on my wedding day so thank god I chose this venue). The room was spacious enough for our 160 guests and the service was amazing. PLUSSS the food was actually hot, cooked perfectly, and so tasty. Talissa was our coordinator and helped execute everything flawlessly! Would 100% recommend this dreamy venue to anyone!
