Hidden in the valley of Carmel stands a beautiful ranch, also known as Gardener Ranch Carmel Wedding Venue. Presidents and famous actors and singers have come to this ranch in the past, and continue to travel here for retreats, weddings, cooking classes, and more. I had the privilege to chat with Heather, and she gave me a lovely early morning tour. The sun was shinning through the trees on this cold morning, with temperatures in the low 40’s. Birds were chirping, the wind was blowing, and Carmel River can be heard in the distance. Oak trees and fresh greenery is what filled the air with such a warm and welcoming smell.
The Ceremony and Reception Space
Throughout the ranch are so many areas where you can host your elopement, micro-wedding, and any large wedding retreat. From courtyards to patios, you have endless options. Some of the most popular are have the ceremony under the oak trees, and wedding games just outside the pool area. The indoor dance floor just steps away!
As I was walking through the property with Heather, tea in our hands, she was lit up when we talked about the homes and suites on the property. There are so many options for guest, and close family and friends are able to stay on the property for the weekend when the wedding is there. The houses were so beautiful, and lots of room!
