    Beautiful coastal views for destination wedding!

    My husband and I decided to go with the Westin Carlsbad because we felt it would give us the best value for our destination California-chic wedding! We fell in love with the Westin’s palm trees, greenery, and overall aesthetic. I had done some research on prior to landing on the Westin and fell in love with their beautiful grand view terrace. The Westin Team and Debra Ayala were phenomenal to work with. We had our ceremony on the pacific lawn and cocktail/reception on the terrace overlooking the beautiful Carlsbad coast and Pacific Ocean on the horizon. It was truly a dream! Thank you to the amazing team for making this such an unforgettable experience for us! The food was amazing and our friends and family enjoyed the open bar set up with all sorts of drink options!

    Michelle,
    It was our pleasure to help make your dream come true! You were such a lovely person to work with you and your wedding was so romantic and beautiful! Best Wishes for a lifetime of happiness always!

    Excellent. Could not be better

    The location, the set up, the food, the room arrangement, the service were all excellent. But it all could not happen without the professionalism of Mr Jeremiah Oshiro who put it altogether with his knowledge, his experience, his cultural awareness (very important) coupled with his own personal touch. A+ We are very happy with a memorable moment forever. Our heartfelt Thanks

    Dear Jean
