  • The property alone speaks for itself as a breathtaking venue. When I wasn't staring at my new husband, I was watching the waves crash off the nearby cliffs. As far as the wedding, Jessica Schmidt was a complete dream from day one. She was responsive to emails and made sure I knew what was going on the entire time. On the day of, she always knew what I needed before I did and she immediately jumped in to help, but was never overbearing. I had made paper flowers with wire stems and just handed her some flowers and wire cutters to make into a boutineer. Her look said that she had it handled and then she ran over and pinned it on the groom. She continued to make sure we had everything we needed during our stay at the hotel and I cannot wait to come back. I couldn't have asked for a better wedding and felt so relieved to be in such good hands. I can't recommend this beautiful dream come true enough.

  • After covid-19 had completely disrupted our original June wedding plans and with so much up in the air for when large groups would be allowed to gather again, we started looking for venues to host an elopement-style wedding but still make our wedding day one to remember forever. Enter Carmel Highlands Inn and their incredible events team. We primarily worked with Jessica, their events and catering manager, and throughout the entire process, she was understanding, flexible, and professional. Because of the pandemic, our new wedding was constantly in a state of flux, yet Jessica was willing to work with us through the back and forth and design a package that was perfect for our needs. Leading up to the wedding, she worked with our vendors to make sure everything was in place for our big day and constantly checked in on us to make sure we were set. However, probably the most impressive thing was on the actual day of our wedding - we were amazed at how she single-handedly pulled everyth... Read more

  • Wow! Where do I begin. Lauren and Jessica were amazing on our wedding day and all the days leading up to it. They were super responsive and able to answer all the questions we had. Due to covid this was my third attempt at planning my wedding and we decided on this intimate “elopement” site. Due to Covid, of course we still had some last minute changes but Jessica and Lauren were still so accommodating and gave us great suggestions. We ended up taking pictures all morning along the Big Sur coast and then after the ceremony we had a beautiful intimate dinner in close by downtown Carmel. Let me just say that this venues view is incredible and makes everything worth it!! Even though it was a bit overcast, we still had the incredible overlook view which I’ve always dreamed about. This venue is definitely a great choice for an intimate wedding or elopement. I’d definitely recommend and trust that this team will make your day beautiful

  • Just returned from a brief elopement, couldn't be happier about our choice of venue. The grounds of the hotel are tranquil and beautiful, views from around the property (especially the deck where we were married) is utterly spectacular, and every person involved from the venue coordinator Jessica to recommended floral, make-up, and officiant were so lovely throughout. Couldn't recommend higher, whether for something small & intimate (like ours, just the 2 of us) or something with more family/friends.

  • Our original plan was to save money by finding a spot on the beach or cliff side and hold a small elopement. We looked for over a year to find the perfect spot and the stress was overwhelming. Turns out it’s a lot harder to just elope in a random spot than you might think! So, in early August 2020 we booked the Hyatt Highlands Inn for our ceremony which was held on Thursday, October 8, 2020. With just a few quick months to plan our small ceremony, Jessica and Lauren, the event coordinators, helped create the perfect ceremony I had imagined. The team was easy to work with, vary responsive, always open to my ideas and available to make them work, and most importantly stress free! The ceremony was held on the gazebo, which is more like a deck because it does not have a cover. The area is beautiful surrounded by ocean and garden views. Booking this location was the best decision and allowed us to have so many more options to create a memorable experience. Our ceremony consisted of 7 g... Read more

  • First and foremost, for planning a wedding in 90 days, I don’t know that it could have happened without the help of Jessica and Lauren. They were attentive, understanding, and most of all super helpful. I flew in from out of state and they gave me vendors, even increased my guest count the day before! They were great, the venue was great, and we now have the best memories.

  • My fiancée and I were one of the many couples who had to change their wedding plans due to COVID-19. Our original wedding in Malibu was cancelled in May. Our venue informed us that we would have to wait until 2021. Instead, we decided to elope. We chose Hyatt Carmel Highlands because of its beautiful location. We met with Jessica and Lauren who walked us through every step of the process. Jessica connected us with their preferred vendors who we could not be happier with. The week before our wedding, tragedy struck and the fires in Northern California hit the region. Jessica proactively reached out to us to let us know that the smoke may be a concern. My fiancée and I were devastated to face the likely possibility that we would have to cancel/postpone our wedding again. However, Lauren was nice enough to take pictures of the venue and view which gave us the assurance we needed to move forward. On the day of our wedding, the level of service Jessica and her team ...

  • Under the current circumstances in limiting our attendees, we were pleasantly surprised how intimate and special our Elopement Wedding Ceremony turned out to be. We first met with Jessica Schmidt, who made the experience easy and uncomplicated. We were so very pleased with ALL of the vendors suggested and recommended by Jessica and her team.

  • The Hyatt Carmel Highlands really made our July 18th 2020 elopement a day we will remember forever. The elopement package we chose had so much to offer with a lot of flexibility. We were really able to make our day exactly how we wanted. Jessica and Lauren were a pleasure to deal with. We were never left in the dark with the excellent communication in the months, weeks, and days leading up to our special day. The venue’s ambience is amazing. The views of the Big Sur coast line from the Gazebo where our ceremony was held were truly breath taking. The lobby and surrounding areas offered so many opportunities for our beautiful photo shoots and made lasting memories with our guests. The ceremony area was private and we felt as if we were the only ones there. The staff was excellent, helpful, and knew exactly what they were doing on the day of. Our guest’s after the ceremony made sure to let us know we chose an excellent venue with great staff, they were impressed. It really put us at... Read more

  • Gabi and Emily are very professional and help with our wedding a lot. They helped us with menu tasting, room upgrade, vender orders and setup. Their questionnaire is well organized and go through each details. Gabi was very patient and helped us on guest meals and even kids meal changes one week before wedding. Emily helped us with rehearsal one day before the wedding and opened the dressing room for us early in the morning. Hyatt Carmel's customer service is excellent. We are impressed by the beautiful view and friendly staffs.

  • I don’t know where to begin with this review. I planned my wedding sight unseen from Illinois. From my first inquiry to the last glass of wine, my wedding was more beautiful and classy than I could have ever imagined. Gabriella was incredibly responsive and was genuinely excited to respond with each petty email I bugged her with. The pictures do not do this venue justice. (And look how beautiful the pictures are). The level of service we received during our small reception was more than I could have asked for. We were spoiled and doted on. What a perfect place. We’ll be returning for our anniversaries!!!

    Katherine, thank you so very much for allowing us to be apart of your special day! It was such an honor to become a staple in your and Craig's story. We look forward to seeing you next March to celebrate your first wedding anniversary!! Love Always, Sheena & Gabriella

  • The most beautiful wedding venue! Our friends got married here a few years ago and we loved it so much we booked it our own wedding. We had 75 people in the surf room and it was perfect for dinner and dancing. Emily, our point of contact at the venue, was very helpful and kind. She was very responsive (even during busy wedding season) and worked closely with our planner which helped me and my family relax. Not only was there a stunning view and perfect weather, the food was so fresh and by far our favorite part of the evening. We had so much fun and everything went so smoothly! The day after the hotel staff helped pack up all of our supplies and load our truck. We are so happy with our experience :)

  • Just had a small destination wedding here. Shelly, Sheena, and Yuri were so helpful and accomodating, especially when planning 3,000 miles away. You can't beat the views from the gazebo, the hotel and it's staff are so nice, the food was amazing, and the vendors they choose are wonderful. Shelly always answered my emails within 48 hours. Though we had a couple of hiccups during the planning process and in the reception venue, the overall experience was wonderful and I would highly recommend the Highlands--especially when it comes to couples who want a small wedding on a small budget!
