SPEND A FEW FUN DAYS TYING THE KNOT.
Imagine your ceremony: are you nestled in a pinot noir vineyard, oak grove and lavender field on our Vineyard Lawn? Embraced by flowers, a river and a charming 1879 farm house on our River Lawn? Bathed in the serene warmth of Carmel Valley on our Valley Lawn? We offer three unique and bucolic ceremony settings that will feel true to you on your special day.
And since your ceremony is only the beginning—of a new life and a remarkable evening—we offer a variety of settings for you to continue your celebration late into the night. Our Clubhouse, just received a $1 million indoor and outdoor redesign and pairs perfectly with the adjacent verdant, stone-lined Valley Lawn. The Clubhouse also offers sweeping views of the valley and hills, soaring vaulted ceilings, and an experience that defies the traditional. Our Redwood Room, perched high above the Vineyard Lawn in our Lodge, offers more traditional elegance, tree-shaded views of the valley and the forest, as well as a private expansive outdoor terrace. The neighboring Oak Room offers intimacy, a private outdoor courtyard with a serene water feature, as well as our fun and very popular Adventure Kitchen (which you may choose to hide), where our chefs are available to prepare your fresh-from-the-garden meals in front of you and your guests.
Of course, your ceremony and reception are the highlights of any wedding weekend, but at The Ranch, the quality time before and after can be just as memorable. Your guests can choose from relaxation at Spa Aiyana, to personalized photography and cooking classes, fitness and wellness classes, beekeeping and lavender harvesting, mountain-top yoga, even nostalgia inspired by our nightly s’mores. And after the celebration, a lazy Sunday morning farewell brunch on a sun-splashed patio, or a lavish brunch buffet with made to order breakfast favorites in the Adventure Kitchen. At The Ranch, there are many ways to bring your family and friends together for a full weekend.
But most importantly, as you paint the picture of your perfect wedding weekend, let your imagination play with you—with a 500 acre canvas, your options (and memories) are endless. Carmel weddings have no better home than Carmel Valley Ranch!
