The Inside Scoop
FROM THE KNOT EDITORS
The First Look
Plan a wedding in beautiful Carmel, California at the Wedgewood Wedding and Banquet Center. Located just a short drive from the spectacular beaches of Carmel-by-the-Sea, Wedgewood Wedding and Banquet Center is nestled within the idyllic hills of Carmel Valley. The gently rolling hills dotted with oak trees provide a picturesque backdrop for a dream wedding. While the resort is not located on the beach, beachfront weddings can be coordinated with the help of the experienced wedding staff. Couples can exchange vows under a lovely ceremony arch with the sand beneath their feet and the calm Pacific Ocean behind them.
Wedding parties can take photos under a canopy of trees or along one of the romantic paths lined with hedges and blooming flowers that meander through the grounds. The resort's Spanish colonial-style architecture also adds a sophisticated old-world style. The following areas are available for ceremonies and receptions.
The Garden. Couples can hold a ceremony on the manicured green lawns of the park with the hills of Carmel Valley behind then. A beautifully crafted white gazebo awaits couples at the end of the aisle. Wedding parties are free to hang flowers along the sides of the gazebo and add their own personal touches.
Fountain Courtyard. The bride and groom can host a cocktail hour in the Fountain Courtyard before stepping into one of the welcoming reception rooms. This graciously appointed space has abundant flowers, a tranquil fountain and a shaded patio framed by traditional Spanish wood beams. A stone fireplace is an intimate accent.
Fiesta Ballroom. After their social hour, couples can head into the Fiesta Ballroom. A combination of skylights and chandeliers create a warm, celebratory atmosphere. Impressive windows allow for natural light or views of the starry skies in the evening. The ballroom has an adjoined patio that is ideal for outdoor mingling. The Fiesta Ballroom can host up to 340 seated guests.
Merienda Room. The Merienda Room is the second, more intimate ballroom at Wedgewood Wedding and Banquet Center. High ceilings, views of the park and surrounding area, elegant chandeliers and ample room for dancing make this room a great option for groups under 175 guests.
