Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • This local landmark has been reimagined as a unique indoor/outdoor retreat with an utterly dreamy ceremony site: a vaulted chapel whose soaring sky-lit cathedral ceiling bathes the space in natural light. Modern chandeliers and a stylish backdrop of light-wood doors, draping and a geometric wedding arch make an on-trend romantic statement. Or wed on the lawn in front of a natural wood gazebo. Bonus: The beach is only five minutes away for scenic photos (or “I do’s” in the sand before heading back to the Windmill for the celebration.)
  • A secluded, bistro-lit patio hosts cocktail hours or intimate dinners warmed by an outdoor fireplace. The new 2nd-story Grand Ballroom boasts a built-in bar, a Lobby and Library nook for relaxing, and wood floors that double as a dance floor. Be sure to show your guests the novel observation lookout under the windmill sails!
  • As with all Wedgewood Wedding venues, flexible all-inclusive packages and their knowledgeable wedding experts make planning a breeze. Start with their “build your own” wedding package option and let them help you put together your own custom wedding experience. For extra convenience + fun, a hotel and the fashionable Carlsbad Food Court (perfect for late-night snacks) are right next door!
