We had our wedding ceremony and reception at this particular Wedgewood location. Both Amanoel and Brea were wonderful to work with. We paid extra to have our wedding on the beach. The day of the wedding it rained all day. We saw that there might be a clearing in the rain so we decided to continue to have our wedding on the beach. They were very patient with us and allowed us to continue to have our wedding on the beach. Sure enough it was sunny when I walked down the isle. The day was perfect and blissful. I plan events for a living and I know how much work they put unto our event and I was so grateful that I was stressfree the day of my wedding. Plus the food was Delicious!!!
My husband and I married on 11/10/13 at the Wedgewood at Rancho Canada. Everything went so smoothly and the service was amazing! The great service started at booking and went right through to the event - our experience was better than expected. The venue was beautiful, the food and cake wonderful, the bar was great, the flowers were better than I could have dreamed, the DJ was fun and did a stellar job, and the staff were so lovely and helpful. This place is such a good value but they don't skimp on anything! Plus, having all the vendors included makes life so much easier. We worked with Brea, Amanoel and Amie. In the video you see Amanoel fixing my train before we go down the hill to start the ceremony and it warmed my heart because I don't remember that happening. The staff at the Wedgewood made our wedding day even better than we expected or could have hoped!
I came all the way from Germany to get married in California and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding venue! Well, we are talking about Carmel here, CARMEL!!!!! The beach they use is gorgeous and not crowded with people, their location on the golf course is gorgeous, the room is gorgeous, yes, everything is gorgeous, yes, Brea and Amanoel are gorgeous too :)!!!! Brea and Amanoel are amazing to work with, they replied to emails within hours, make sure to tell them every little detail in mind. Remember, for you it's THE wedding, for them it's just one wedding out of tons of weddings! That doesn't mean they don't treat you with special care and live! They are beyond friendly, warm and caring! The food was great, everyone loved the open bar and the music! Thank you!
So wedgewood has apparently been around for 25 years, but this particular venue is a new contract and has only conducted a couple of weddings. I contracted for a beach ceremony for 100 people and would be told that it was no problem. After doing our own research we found out that a beach permit would only allow 50 people and the general manager told us "there's nothing we can do". Not only were we paying for $100 people, and had already put down a hefty deposit, but they were not allow a refund due to breach of contract.
Not until I left a truthful feedback post on their facebook page when they asked for feedback, did I get a response from Bill the President of Wedgewood. Only then did people seem to care about the issue. They tried finding another beach, but only found one that was dirty and had homeless people living on it (no offense to homeless people, I know they need help, but its not something anyone pictures in the background of their wedding pictures). I then sent another disgruntled message to Bill, and was shocked to hear the message he left on our voicemail. He basically said the he was sorry, and its clear that both sides are at fault. Both sides?! I honestly don't know how I would be at fault, other than for signing a contract with this company for my wedding! Really, they should be thanking me, because if they hadn't heard about this permit issue, they wouldn't have known to fix other contracted weddings.
I, finally found another beach myself (pretty easy when you can use google and a telephone) and thankfully Wedgewood did the rightful thing and paid for those services.
I wouldn't necessarily say that all Wedgewoods are like this, but this particular site has a lot to learn. Be very careful when booking at this site, and make sure to ask the right questions. I'm thankful that they took care of the issue, but I did a lot of the solution solving myself. I have faith and hope my wedding goes well still.
We had our Reception at Rancho Canada and it was beautiful! The room had just been renivated and it looked great! The food was FANTASTIC! Best wedding buffet food I have ever had.
It was all in all a wonderful day! Jeff at Rancho Canada did a great job with getting things set for us. There was a lack of communication with some things. But all worked out in the end. The food was great! Prime rib the best!!! My only complaint was we had the room rented until midnight and the staff was breaking down tables by 1030 when we had plenty of guest still dancing and having fun. Was kind of strange...made everyone feel they were being pushed out to soon. Not alone they tossed all my rented flowers and fall leaves.
Perfect size room for 100 guest wedding. They also had a larger room if you need it. The food was A+! We did a dinner buffet for our wedding. We got many compliments about the food. They did not have a cake cutting fee, we had a cash bar, a DJ floor was provided. They had it all.
