Today we’re sharing a sweet soiree that we actually got to attend this time! The posh (and only) boutique hotel in Rancho Santa Fe (North County San Diego, CA), The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe, hosted a few wedding professionals for an intimate evening of celebrating with “The Inn Crowd.” And what a celebration it was! If you’re looking for a domestic destination wedding location in a city where it’s almost always sunny, at a place that feels truly private, then be sure to stop and see The Inn and you’ll discover a little hidden magic in this Southern California city.
The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe is ideal for buyouts, with only 80 rooms situated in 17 cottages, every guest of yours will feel right at home when they check into their fireplace-clad cozy getaway. Sitting on 21-acres surrounded by old eucalyptus trees and winding pathways, it’s really the perfect disconnect from the big hotel wedding and the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
And the wedding venues – oh the weddings venues! Whether you opt to play a round of croquet on the lawn during cocktail hour or tent it instead for larger parties (up to 350), your beautiful backdrop will be the center of this quaint California town and the 1920’s adobe style hotel structure that you wish was home!
For more intimate gatherings, like the dinner we attended, head to the croquet cottage – where we dined on an incredible meal fireside with the sweet smell of the fireplace burning beside us. The chefs on property are so exceptional that certain dishes have even become local legend (I highly recommend the Royce Salad)! For decor on this delightful night, Isari Flower Studio dressed the room from top to bottom and we couldn’t have loved the look more!
Yet this isn’t the only intimate event space on property. The library makes a great post-wedding brunch spot for your immediate family and the spa is perfect for a girls gathering. There are so many surprising spots to discover at The Inn; just exploring the grounds you never know what you’ll find!
But perhaps even better than the surroundings that welcome you at The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe is the staff that greets you with a smile upon arrival. And the weddings department is no different – Morgan and Rebecca and their team quickly become trusted confidants when working with them. Rest assured your wedding will be truly spectacular when you say “I do” in this special spot. I loved our time here and can’t wait to go back for that perfect Southern California staycation!
