    Perfect Wedding

    My husband and I were beyond happy with how our wedding day turned out at the Carlsbad windmill! The planning process was seamless and the wedding team would always respond so quickly to any questions I had via text, which made it easy.

    Sarah was so helpful in our planning. Shannon our coordinator was an all-star from the rehearsal to the reception. She did such a great job of organizing our family and friends for the ceremony and was essential to creating a stress-free day for us.

    We had the buffet for the reception and our guests were raving about how good the food was and we agree. The vendors they provided were incredible.

    Having the windmill food hall attached to the venue made it more fun and convenient for our guests before and after our wedding. The hotel is within walking distance, literally next door which was a plus.

    I highly recommend this location they exceed our expectations!

    Wedgewood team is amazing!

    Wedding planning made EASY! I had my wedding at the Carlsbad Windmill and was so happy with how it turned out. My wedding was beautiful and couldn’t have gone better. The team at Wedgewood helped me SO much throughout the process. They answered my emails and texts quickly so I never had to stress. Jax went above and beyond and worked extra to help the venue provide us with black chargers plates for our wedding. Kayla was an amazing day-of coordinator for us and helped the day run smoothly. I’m so thankful for the whole team!

    What an amazing venue

    So happy my daughter found this venue. They had attentive and polite staff, the food was amazing and the location was perfect for our family. The hotel beds were comfy so if you wanna imbibe you won’t be sad that you stayed the night. Obey the rules and you will be treated like royalty. My daughter and her wife got married on a Thursday… I didn’t know that I could afford my daughters dream wedding but this venue made it possible. Thank you for the hospitality Wedgewood. I appreciate and highly recommend.
