This flower paradise not only welcomes tourists and local visitors but all those lovely couples searching for a place to share their nuptials. The centerpiece of the Carlsbad Ranch wedding experience is the newly renovated Paul Ecke Jr. Barn that provides an informal and inviting 200-seat reception hall. Behind this charming barn are the brand new one-of-a-kind, flower-ensconced wedding stage, water wall, and trellis guaranteed to create the storybook setting for this romantic event. This central ceremony area is flanked by three separate themed gardens – the Reception Garden with cabana style beverage station and fire pit, the Mediterranean Garden with columned pergola and fountain, and the Whimsical Garden with weeping willows and plants with romantic flair – all well suited for serving cocktails, receiving guests and live entertainment.

In addition to the renovations, the fields are blazing with colorful roses, orchids, sweet pea blossoms and a greenhouse full of poinsettias. Guests can enjoy a variety of events during regular hours and off hours including the new Sunset Wine Tasting & Music at The Flower Fields!
