We absolutely loved our Wedding reception at The Crossings. We actually selected our wedding date based upon the availability of the first Saturday reception date available in 2010.   

The golf course and clubhouse are gorgeous and our pictures exceeded our expectations as a result. The coordinator took us out on a golf cart to take photos at some select locations on the course right at sunset and the pictures are priceless.   Our guests enjoyed a cocktail hour on the patio with drinks and passed appetizers while we took photos. From the brides perspective of wanting to look perfect on the Wedding day, it was so nice to be able to do some hair and make up touch ups in the locker room on site. 

The layout of the room made for a perfect entrance area for the bridal party. The setting was so beautiful that I was able to eliminate some of the extra decorations that I was planning for and it looked great. The service and bartenders were top notch, and the few guests that we had that were vegetarians received their meals accurately. We had rave reviews about the duet plate that was served to the guests on our special day. The chocolate fondue fountain was a big hit! 

Our out of town guests were completely taken aback by the breath taking views, not to mention the proximity of nearby hotels was so convenient. Over a year later, there is not a single regret in our minds about selecting the Crossings at Carlsbad as our reception location.
