Garden of Light Venue
We offer a rustic venue in a rural hillside setting in the Northern San Diego town of Bonsall, California. It is about 10 miles east of Oceanside on the highway 76.
Wedding ceremonies are held outside in the hillside garden of trees, flowers, arbors and peacocks all creating a wonderfully serene backdrop to capture photos and most importantly, the moments.
Receptions are held in the old Adobe hacienda-style building with high ceilings, chandeliers and a faux fireplace. This reception area includes a bar and plenty of space for dance, as well as for dining.
The venue can accommodate up to 200 guests.

Shelia at Garden for Light was so accommodating for our June wedding. My husband and I first visited and knew this is where we wanted to host our reception. The peacocks were a hit and the garden behind the hall. Everything was so beautiful and Shelia made sure that everything went off without a hitch! She also recommended an event staff that was incredible. I love the vibes of this rustic hall.

I'm hosting my wedding here in July this year. I have to tell you all that so far Sheila is amazing!!! She is very helpful and is certainly a pleasure to work with. She is available to answer all of your questions and she is quick! I can't wait to get married at The Garden of Light! (When our pictures are taken I will certainly share)

I cannot believe we found this hidden gem! It has all the flexibility we need to have the wedding of our dreams. The entire property is so beautiful and filled with such warm energy. Every time I visit, I get more and more excited about our wedding. The gorgeous peacocks are just an added bonus!
