I got married at Leo Carrillo on 6/29 and am still living on newlywed cloud 9. I might be slightly biased but I think that we had the best wedding ever and the most beautiful wedding ever. Leo Carrillo had a lot to do with the later. The space is so absolutely stunning that it doesn't need much embellishment at all. I would also like to mention that the twinkly lights everywhere somehow make the place even more magical at night, which from all my visits prior I had never had a chance to see before and was such a great surprise.Sent on 07/15/2019
We booked the venue well in advance, somewhere between a 18 months and year. So I had the opportunity to work with a few people within the company in that time, as people moved around in positions within the company. I was slightly nervous when a couple months in advance of the wedding a new person took on the lead planning role. However, all my fears were for nothing, because Kendra is amazing! She kept the day running smoothly and never made me feel like I was on a clock. Even my family and friends commented on how wonderful she was as a person and at her job.
I also feel like our money went incredibly far with the venue and catering. The ambiance alone of the venue made our wedding look more expensive, by far, than it was.
If you also would like the most beautiful wedding in the world, book Leo Carrillo.

"The most fun wedding I've been to"
Leo Carrillo was the second venue we toured and literally booked it the next day. It’s lush, beautiful (day AND night), has a great staff, and there is literally not a bad spot on the property.Sent on 09/06/2019
The entire team is wonderful. We had a few different points of contact through the process, but each person was able to keep up with our ideas and what we wanted for our wedding. They answered emails and questions so quickly and never forgot one detail.
The wedding day itself went so perfectly. Our day of coordinator was Kendra. In the words of my mother, “Kendra is OUTSTANDING.”
The wedding day was so smooth. The whole day I never questioned or worried about anything going wrong or being crazy, Kendra had it all under control. Plus, she is like a magician. She would literally appear out of nowhere to grab us for whatever was happening (pictures, dance, cake cutting, etc) and then would be out of site when she wasn’t needed. My mom was so happy and raved to me about Kendra dropping the gifts and cards into her car and returning the key to her purse without my mom ever having to leave the party.
My husband and I wanted to do a private last dance at the very end of the night to enjoy the moment together. Kendra was able to round up all of our guests to get them lined up for our exit without them even knowing we were staying behind for a few minutes. She collected the items we told her we needed from the bridal suite, and had them on the golf cart waiting for us, then dropped us off with our ride.
Literally every guest has told us it was the most fun wedding they’ve ever been to. It’s been almost three months since our wedding and I look at pictures daily. I can’t believe how well it came together and just how much more beautiful everything was from what I imagined. I'm so happy we got married at Leo Carrillo!

A slice of California paradise!
Wow! We had such a fabulous experience getting married at Leo Carrillo Ranch. The venue is so gorgeous, it is truly a little slice of paradise in Carlsbad. Our California wedding dreams came true at the venue, from the market lights to the landscaping and architecture. A huge thank you to Personal Touch Dining who made the planning and coordination process so easy from the very beginning of booking the Ranch. Kendra, our day-of-coordinator, was a rock star and made the big day run so seemlessly. She was really great to work with during the months leading up to the wedding and then the day itself. We couldn't be happier with how the day turned out, we love Leo Carrillo Ranch!Sent on 09/01/2019
