Hotels book up quickly in Carmel. Since it's Memorial Day weekend, it'll be busy and the hotels typically fill up way in advance! Please book your hotel as soon as possible.
Airbnb and HomeAway are also great alternatives to your normal hotel, and will have exciting options around the area. We highly recommend you check this out and perhaps get a group together in a house nearby!
If you're having trouble finding appropriate lodging in Carmel-by-the Sea or Carmel Valley, the neighboring cities are great options. Pacific Grove, Seaside and Monterey only add about 15 minutes to your drive.
Note that we will be having a FUN Game Day on Saturday, May 26 and the wedding is on Sunday, May 27 th. We’d love for you to plan to spend the weekend celebrating with us Friday through Monday (see the schedule webpage for more details).
If you're out of town, we recommend that you rent a car at SFO or SJC for getting around!
Lyft does operate in the Carmel area, and we highly recommend for the night of the wedding and travel around town. Wait times for cars to arrive at the Holly Farm average 30 minutes.
If you'd like to drive to the venue for the wedding reception or other events, we have almost unlimited parking with no time restrictions. Just make sure to pick up your car before checkout on May 28th at 4pm.
Carmel Valley typically sees warm summer days and cold nights. We'll be outside, so be sure to bring something warm because it will get chilly! Both the wedding and reception will take place outdoors at the same venue.
We will be hosting mainly for the adults and will not have a babysitter, however, you are more than welcome to bring the kiddos to the wedding and reception since this is a family and friend affair!
We are so grateful you are making the trek and want to make this a lovely weekend for all. If you have trouble booking your hotel or have other logistical questions, feel free to email us!
