Since 2010, we have planned and set up weddings in over 150 different locations throughout Monterey County stretching from Aptos all the way down to Big Sur. Depending on your preference and budget, your wedding can take place in any of the following locations:
Site fees vary based on the location and range from a few that are still "free" up to over $10,000. On average, a beach or park rental will range from about $400 - $700 while a venue that includes a reception space can be closer to $1,500 and up. We are fully insured as a wedding company to meet the requirements of any location.
Where you would like to hold your wedding is up to you! We are here to help assist with the finding you the perfect Monterey County wedding venue. For some, they love the beach with the sand and great ocean views. For others, you might love the ocean view but not be interested in having everyone trekking down to the beach. We have talked to some brides that really relish privacy so having the ceremony in a private room or a separate area of a small inn is preferable.
When it comes to finding the perfect location for your wedding in Monterey, Carmel or anywhere in between, just let us know how we can help your dream location become a reality. Keep in mind that although we list some locations on our site, we currently have a complete list of 150 outdoor wedding venues and 45 indoor venues for a ceremony in Monterey County.
Often times, people also ask about where to have their wedding reception. Many of the wedding venues in Monterey County offer sites for your reception as well. For some, you will be taking advantage of their in-house culinary team while others will allow you to bring in your own caterer (and we have an excellent list of local catering teams). For some of the smaller hotels and churches as well as beach and park locations, we can either help you find a restaurant for your wedding reception or a special place where your dream lunch or dinner can be catered. You can also make use of our reception planning module, to assist you in finding the perfect location.
