“Rancho Bernardo Inn will go above and beyond to make your dream day happen. Catering Sales Manager, Courtney Ikeda offered a world-class first impression. We looked at several locations up and down California, no one offered the attention to detail and personalization that Courtney did. We selected Rancho Bernardo Inn for our wedding site, not only because of the beautiful landscape, but because she set such a high standard for service. Fast-forward several months and 1000s of emails, the wedding weekend was successful due to the efforts of the property staff. Our Catering Services Manager, Adrian Dean, did everything in her power to make sure we had dinner outside on a rainy Memorial Day Weekend. RB Inn utilized a space on property that had never been used in this capacity and it was perfect. Thank you so much, Adrian! The team at RB Inn will go above and beyond to accommodate requests. A very special shout out to the banquet housemen who stayed calm through many location changes. The valet and bell staff were always eager to assist. The banquet team was exceptional, especially our captain and bartender. Thank you to RB Inn’s General Manager for allowing us to do something unique and truly memorable. You all played a part in our unforgettable wedding weekend.”Brittany C.
“I got married at the Rancho Bernardo Inn and it was the perfect day! The venue itself is simply beautiful, and the service and staff are wonderful. What I loved about getting married at the RB Inn was that my ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception were all in the same area, which meant no transportation needed! Another plus was being able to keep the party going in the bar after the reception. We loved having a built-in after party that, again, didn’t require transportation. Special thanks to Adrian, our catering services manager, for answering questions in a timely manner and making the day about US. She checked in with us during dinner and made us feel like we were in great hands.”Emily N.
“Getting married at the RBI was an absolute dream. Growing up in the area it meant so much to me to get married at this stunning venue. The locations are all gorgeous and there are countless areas for spectacular photos (especially during sunset). We were married at the North Lawn/Bernardo Ballroom area, and the flow of the evening could not have been more perfect! Special shout out to Adrian Dean for her help and attention to detail to make it our dream day :)”Amanda H.
“”Getting married at the RB Inn was a dream come true. The entire day was magical from getting ready in the dressing room they had set aside for my bridesmaids to walking down the aisle at the North Lawn. Our guests walked through gates off of the ceremony space into the beautiful cocktail hour patio and then flowed right into the picturesque Bernardo Ballroom. Working with Adrian and her staff was a breeze, and everyone really cares about making your wedding day as perfect as can be. Our guests are still raving about how amazing the food was, and I am so glad we chose the RB Inn.”Erin C.
“Rancho Bernardo Inn was really amazing during this COVID crisis, they were easy to work with and straightforward about rules and regulations. Jackie helped us get through our big day seamlessly!”Marisa O.
“We’ve chosen Rancho Bernardo Inn for our wedding on August 7 2021 and it was a good choice! Jennifer led us through all the process and she is very responsive, polite and willing to help. The property is gorgeous, we booked 2 nights there and enjoyed the time. Staff is polite and helpful, you won’t have to worry about anything with them. One thing, be careful with the Granada lawn for ceremony – it’s very beautiful but it was a little noisy there because the swimming pool is close. Didn’t interfere a lot though! They also have a lot of ceremony venues for bigger or smaller company so you will definitely find something to your choice. Our reception room was Granada, too, and it was perfect for our small 30 people wedding. Overall, we are more than happy with our wedding and express gratitude to Jennifer Guynn, her assistant Gina and all staff who helped us. That was terrific!”Ana J.
“My husband and I got married at the Rancho Bernardo Inn in August and we could not have been happier! From our first tour, we knew it was the place for us! The grounds are amazing, so green, and there are so many different ceremony/reception sites to pick from. Jackie at RBI was amazing to work with! She responded quickly and answered all of our questions throughout our year of planning. Our guests have not stopped talking about how beautiful every aspect of the wedding was and most of that was due to the amazing location and food – especially the Sea Bass ! Our photos turned out absolutely amazing. From the entry way to all the hidden lush gardens, there are so many beautiful spots to capture the day! I highly recommend the Rancho Bernardo Inn for a wedding! You won’t be disappointed! It was the perfect day and exactly what we wanted!”Lauren B.
“This venue is the perfect wedding weekend experience! We picked a three day weekend since we had a majority of guest traveling in. Between the rooms and amenities, this was the perfect choice. Our guest loved that they could relax poolside or play golf during any downtime. Our weekend also was a sold out weekend but we felt like the only guest on the grounds. As for the venue for our wedding, it was everything my pinterest board wanted with string lights and romantic garden feels. Jackie did an amazing job suggesting ceremony and reception sites for our guest size. She answered my many of questions (and we had a few) and she went above and beyond the day of to make sure everything we asked for completed. We opted for a plated meal, which we know can be hard and we still have guest raving about the quality and presentation of the food.”Brooks K.
“Our wedding weekend at RBI was magical. We hosted all of our wedding events at RBI and most of our 175 guests stayed on the property. We worked with Jennifer at RBI to plan to event, and she was amazing. She was incredibly responsive and worked with us to create the weekend of our dreams. The food, drinks, service, and ambiance were phenomenal. We are still getting compliments from guests about what a great venue RBI is. We will definitely be back for anniversaries and more!”Lily K.
