  • Wedding planning is hard enough and once you throw in a pandemic, well, planning a traditional wedding is out the door! Nicole and her team at CMR were able to accommodate our smaller, outdoor ceremony for our day and it couldn't have been any more perfect. Our close family and friends were able to witness and enjoy our ceremony while still being safe and adhering to social distancing guidelines. When we initially booked CMR, we thought we would have our ceremony AND reception, but of course plans changed. Throughout the whole process of trying to figure out if we should postpone, cancel, or go with a ceremony only, Nicole walked us though our options and always answered the inquires we had (which was a lot!). We never felt pressure from CMR to make a decision and felt that they respected whatever we decided to do. We're happy that we stuck with CMR for our ceremony only. Not only was working with them a pleasant experience, but the venue itself had a lovely vibe and wonderful lo... Read more

  • We couldn't ask for anything more from CMRE and the entire staff. They were flexible the day-of when we had to shift some plans due to rain (thank goodness that they have so many different indoor and outdoor spaces!). Our guests still talk about how good the food was. The serving team was so prompt. Our guests seemed to finish their meals at about the same time, regardless of which table they were seated at. The whole team was professional and friendly - it felt like they were really celebrating along with us. I would absolutely recommend this venue, especially if you're looking for a place with indoor and outdoor spaces or a venue where you have plenty of space to get ready on-site!

  • My husband and I had the honor of having our wedding at Carmel Mountain Ranch Estate last September (2019). We had looked at about 6 venues before we saw CMRE... and to be honest, the moment we parked in the lot and walked to the front of the building, I immediately knew this venue was the one! We toured the venue with Nicole (who is absolutely amazing and so sweet). From the outside ceremony site to the indoor reception hall... everything was absolutely stunning and beautiful. The natural light that came from the windows in the reception hall was a complete game-changer for me and my husband. We knew it was THE one. I have absolutely no regrets and would 1000 times choose CMRE as our wedding venue. Nicole, the event manager, was absolute joy to work with - she was so attentive and responsive to my non-stop questions. She was super supportive in all the decisions we had to make re: the venue and catering and all the little details. Little did I know that our wedding planner (Talissa) w... Read more

  • I fell in love with this venue the moment I saw the french windows with gorgeous mountain views. I wanted an indoor venue as I was having a winter wedding in San Diego's wettest month, January (it actually poured on my wedding day so thank god I chose this venue). The room was spacious enough for our 160 guests and the service was amazing. PLUSSS the food was actually hot, cooked perfectly, and so tasty. Talissa was our coordinator and helped execute everything flawlessly! Would 100% recommend this dreamy venue to anyone!

  • Our wedding dreams began 2 years ago when we booked Carmel Mountain Ranch Country Club as our venue. Not only did it perfectly fit my vision for a Gatsby wedding I also felt so excited to begin the planning process knowing I would have Talissa (the event manager) as my coordinator and right hand through-out the entire process. For two years she was there every step of the way. I was very eager to get my planning started and as premature as my questions and worries were she always was there to calm me down and give her valued opinion. As the big day grew closer my questions for Talissa got more and more frequent. As busy as she is she always was there for me as though she was my maid of honor and best friend, never making me feel like she was bothered or pushing to add to the total of my wedding. She has so many great vendor recommendations and decor ideas that were so helpful. The venue it's self is simply stunning but having someone who knows how the well oiled machine operates at his...

  • Words can’t describe how amazing CMRCC’s team was for our wedding, but I’m going to give it my very best. Long story short, if I could plan our wedding all over again we would go with CMRCC 100% and recommend it to everyone we know! Food: most common comment from guests “that was the best wedding food that I have ever had in my life, and that includes my own wedding!” We had a beef, salmon, and mushroom entrée with the shrimp and tomato hors devours. The chef snuck our sweet heart table extra entrees and the staff made sure to bring out the hors devours to me while I was taking photos. Perfect rating on both food, service, and value. We had an open bar, which many of our guests commented was extremely generous with their pours. Ceremony Area: It is stunning with a lovely gazebo. Everything was set up for us so we didn’t have to lift a finger. Reception Area: even more stunning than the ceremony, the reception room floods with gorgeous lights, huge windows, and perfectl...

  • Our daughter was married at CMRCC October 1, 2016. A HUGE and RELAXING success, as noted by all who attended (85 adults, 5 kids who probably had more fun than anyone). Wow! A great time planning a wedding? Check. Nicole Manalo, our in-house planner, wonderfully helpful from beginning to the wedding day? Check. Every one of their suggested vendors AMAZING—Moments in Bloom, Zelo Photography, Battleson Entertainment (Gus). Spectacular garden to have the ceremony? Check. Warm, beautiful and professionally maintained and run reception area? Check. A little room for babysitter and kids? Check. A private room for the bride and her party with champagne? Check. Delicious food, served impeccably? Check. Belly bars outside with pretty string lights? Check. Excellent support of, and contact, with all vendors? Check. BEST wedding experience EVER, from beginning to end. Thanks so much. Almost wish we could do it all over again. Will be enjoying memories for many years to come.

  • Nicole from Carmel was amazing to work with. We planned a destination wedding in San Diego from Chicago and were recommended to Nicole by another vendor. We had our ceremony and reception at Carmel. The outside gazebo area is beautiful and in sunny San Diego you can't go wrong with an outdoor wedding. We needed minimal decor to vamp up the gazebo. The inside reception area was perfect for our 70 person wedding. We upgraded to gold and ivory chivary chairs and added fancy linens and this transformed the inside venue. It looked so elegant with the large windows and gold chandeliers. I love that it didn't look like a typical hall but instead it was so elegant and classy. And the views around the venue were stunning. Like I said, Nicole was wonderful to wrong with. She gave me a quote right away, which by the way this place is SO reasonably priced for what you get, and after that all communications with her were just easy. It was like texting a friend. What I most appreciated was he... Read more

  • The PERFECT wedding venue! It has it all, beautiful landscaping, amazing views, elegant details and outstanding service! Talissa was our coordinator and we couldn't have pulled off a more perfect day without her and the rest of the CMRCC staff. We booked the venue a year in advance to lock in our June date. She kept in contact throughout that time and walked us through every step of the planning process. She used her extensive wedding planning experience to help us pull together all of the details at the end. We have been overwhelmed with compliments from our guests on how beautiful and flawless the wedding was and would definitely recommend this venue to everyone!!

  • I had the great pleasure of working with Nicole Manalo, both in her capacity as the Director of Sales & Catering at the Carmel Mountain Ranch Country Club (CMRCC), and as the Day of Coordinator for my son and daughter-in-law’s recent wedding at CMRCC. I found Nicole to be very professional, accessible, accommodating and genuinely devoted to providing the most beautiful and memorable wedding experience any bride and groom could desire. It was clear from the beginning that Nicole takes her job very seriously and that she is highly competent. For these and other reasons, she was an easy choice for role of DOC – absolutely no need to look outside the venue! On wedding day, Nicole was the first one there and last one to leave. She executed the couple’s vision and the timeline meticulously, while also allowing room for flexibility as needed. Nicole’s drive, passion and commitment to her profession greatly contributed to the absolutely, beautiful and magical wedding event that unfold... Read more

  • My husband and I got married at Carmel Mountain Ranch Country Club in June 2017. We had a wonderful experience working with Nicole (who was also our day-of-coordinator). From the tour to the food tastings to the rehearsal, everything was great. Nicole was quick to respond and handled an error like a champ. Our wedding day could not have been more magical. The venue is like a fairy tale. Gorgeous gazebo in a greenery area and then a reception inside a beautiful window filled room with large gold chandeliers. Our guests are still telling us how amazing our venue was and we could not have been happier. Nice staff, delicious food, gorgeous (and affordable!) venue... what more could you want??

    Thank you so much for your kind words! We really appreciate you taking the time to write us a review. We are extremely happy to hear everything went wonderfully for you and your special day from the time you took a tour with us all the way to your wedding day!

  • You do not need to look any further. This venue has the convenience of your ceremony and reception being right next to each other. Plus free parking just steps away. I loved that they included the cake and the food. The room is so beautiful that you do not need to do a lot decoration wise. The staff is so friendly and helpful. Every time I would go back to visit the venue I would fall more and more in love with it.

  • Looking back on our wedding day, I don't think we could have picked a better venue. From the staff, to the food, to the amazing look/feel of the place, our day could not have been any more perfect. Talissa did a great job of keeping everything organized and on track up to the big day. She was such a delight and she handled all of our requests (and emotions) flawlessly. Day of, the entire catering/wait staff was professional, attentive and extremely accommodating to every one of our guests. Everyone who attended raved about the food and how wonderful it was. While I didn't get to eat much, the few bites I did get were even better than expected (best wedding food I've had). Finally, the look/feel of CMRCC helped make my wedding dreams a reality. Dinner at sunset was perfect with the large windows and white interior. Thank you, CMRCC, for giving my husband and me a day we will never forget!

  • Our wedding took place at the CMRCC on 5/15/16. It was an absolutely perfect evening and the venue and staff were fantastic from start to finish. We worked with Talissa and she was absolutely amazing. She was able to coordinate seamlessly between me, my fiancé, my parents, and our wedding coordinator. She was always prompt with her replies and very organized. Everything ran smoothly on the night and everything that we had asked for was delivered. The country club is a beautiful building: Lots of tall ceilings, white walls, elegant chandeliers, and large windows that overlook a beautiful view of the golf course. The reception room is large and elegant, both classy and romantic. They provide two large rooms for the groom and groomsmen, as well as for the bride and bridesmaid to get ready in. We did our ceremony outside by their gazebo and the cocktail hour outside as well. Their outside garden is truly beautiful and provides a very romantic garden setting. There are ple... Read more
