About

Garden of Light Venue offers a gorgeous escape for any style wedding hosted in Bonsall, California.

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 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.

Capacity

The venue can accommodate up to 200 guests.

A true gem!

The Garden of Light venue is truly a hidden gem and we couldn't have found a more perfect place to host our wedding reception. First of all, the owner, Sheila, was so kind and generous with her time, resources, and connections. We were treated like family from our first meeting. Always quick to communicate, she helped us integrate all of the elements that were important to us (complete with a hosted coffee bar!). It was clear she wanted us to have the most special day, and did everything she could to make that happen. She provided excellent vendor connections, as well, that made the entire planning process seamless. The value we got for the price was incomparable for the high quality of our event. She has clearly poured her heart into making the Garden of Light feel like a home to others during the hours they are utilizing the space. Our guests appreciated having the garden and grounds to wander in while waiting for official festivities to start--an especially big hit with our guests who brought children. The peacocks and birds were a fun addition for those spending time outside. It's also a beautiful place for pictures, inside and out. We are so grateful to have found this place and couldn't have been happier with our event!

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)
