Madison is the best!

We were looking for a venue that allowed us to book the ceremony only since our reception was held at another venue and Hotel Karlan was one of the most affordable and accommodating venue we could ... Read more find in San Diego that also included the chairs. Madison, the event manager, was super responsive, detailed, and very friendly. She was very prompt in answering all my questions. Also, she was also on top of deadline reminders which I appreciated so much since I was already swamped with so many wedding preparations. During rehearsal, she was also super helpful in guiding us through the ceremonial process alongside our day of coordinators. The ceremony site itself is quite nice on an open lawn and very large "arch". The ceremony only package itself includes a large number of chairs and a large ready room. The only downside was that there wasn't much shade to protect our guests from the hot summer sun, but we took care of that with umbrella rentals. Overall, a very satisfied experience with Hotel Karlan.

I had the pleasure of working with Hotel Karlan for wedding planning and decor back in November 2017. My experience was absolutely phenomenal! Once I arrived to set up the decor, a member of the ... Read more catering team greeted me and asked if there was anything that I needed. The members also checked in with me periodically before the event started. Once the wedding began, I was assigned a banquet manager that made sure everything was up to my standards as well as the bride's standards. Before the staff retired for the night, they checked in with myself and the bride! I would have to say this was one of the best experiences that I have had at a venue. Hotel Karlan was more than accomodating to Blush Moments. I hope we get to work with them again in the near future!
