    We had the pleasure of the Westin opening a few weeks before our big fat Indian wedding on 8/18 (previously it was all Sheraton property until 7/2018) and everything was SPECTACULAR! I cannot thank Elizabeth Murphy and her team enough. For any wedding here, the best part of the Sheraton/Westin is that all your guests can stay on the property for the weekend and your wedding is on the same site, but still separate from where guests are staying so they aren't peeking in on your decorations the night before or intruding into your first look. The staff was incredibly helpful, they were accommodating with room changes leading up to the wedding, passed out welcome bags to over 70+ room bookings, helped set up decorations for our pre-wedding events, helped w/guests having breakfast/brunch in the Terramar Room in the Sheraton, and served ice cream on the day of the ceremony to our 350 guests (just to name a few of the things I really appreciated!). The property itself also has tons of great spaces for photos, and another wedding was happening on the Pacific Lawn and we had NO idea it was even occurring - that's how big the property is! Elizabeth was so amazing over the last year, with her quick replies to emails, her understanding of the Indian desire to negotiate costs, and her flexibility with our crazy ideas (from a giant sign with our names on it to a sparkler exit), she was the best. The ONLY constructive feedback I can think of is that the bridal/executive suite only had 1 mirror (on the day I needed to check myself out the most) - but really, even thats a stretch. For ANYONE thinking of having their wedding at the Westin, do not hesitate to do so! THANK YOU Elizabeth and the Westin Carlsbad!

    Holy moly! Where to begin? Elizabeth Murphy at The Westin Carlsbad is a DOLL. From our initial tour a year beforehand, to helping throughout the process with diagrams of the layout (i.e. a legitimate drone photo taken of the site), recommendations for # people per table and photo locations, booking room reservations for us and our guests that weekend, menu tasting, and not to mention working through my absolute failure to communicate that our seating chart had changed the night before! I still feel horrible and wish I could give every staff member that night a giant hug for cleaning up after me and ensuring everyone was still served correctly ... especially those that were gluten-free weren't served the wrong plate! Elizabeth and the entire banquet team was kind, professional, and just amazing to work with. For the cost, it was absolutely worth every penny to us. We didn't have to worry about food, linens, tables, chairs, flatware, charger plates, drinkware -- they even provided decor like lanterns and votive candles! All we ended up renting was a dance floor and the chuppah from an outside vendor, and then we bought or made our own favors, signage, etc. We did add-on market lighting and the moon balloon from The Westin -- we and our guests LOVED it! It totally set the ambiance for the evening. Both our ceremony and reception were on the Ocean Blue lawn + terrace and it accommodated 100 guests perfectly. We used the smaller lawn for lawn games + belly table, the terrace for the cocktail hour and shade, and the larger lawn for the ceremony and reception. It felt super roomy and gave people enough space to move around and enjoy themselves! That ocean view and sunset was stunning too!
