Checks all the boxes
We couldn't ask for anything more from CMRE and the entire staff. They were flexible the day-of when we had to shift some plans due to rain (thank goodness that they have so many different indoor and outdoor spaces!). Our guests still talk about how good the food was. The serving team was so prompt. Our guests seemed to finish their meals at about the same time, regardless of which table they were seated at. The whole team was professional and friendly - it felt like they were really celebrating along with us. I would absolutely recommend this venue, especially if you're looking for a place with indoor and outdoor spaces or a venue where you have plenty of space to get ready on-site!Sent on 05/09/2020

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!!!Sent on 04/05/2020

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!Sent on 01/22/2019
At Spotlight Studios, every artist can't help but be in love with the classy, antique backdrop of Caramel Mountain Ranch Country Club. It is so easy for our photographers to create beautiful images here. We appreciate the staff and absolutely recommend this place for beautiful weddings and events.
Lovely and Legendary. Beautiful for two or a large corporate event which I have been on. It's a special place for any occasion but a wedding would be so beautiful there.
Elegance and beautiful views combined with outstanding professional staff and 5-star dishes make Carmel Mountain Ranch CC the best choice for a wedding in North San Diego.
