Choosing the venue. The first step in your planning process, and perhaps the hardest to decide on. The venue sets the tone for the rest of the design of the wedding, whether you prefer a casual bohemian wedding on the beach, or a glam ballroom wedding. Whatever your taste is, we can help you find it! We have countless of amazing venues that we have worked at that can be tailored to fit your individual style. We love designing venues in multiple ways, each suited for that couple. To give an idea of the various types of venues that the Central California Coast has to offer, here are some of our favorite spots from Big Sur to Half Moon Bay.
The Clement Monterey is a gorgeous hotel located in the heart of Cannery Row. This hotel overlooks the Monterey Bay, and allows for outdoor and indoor options for ceremony, cocktails, and dinner. This location is the perfect combination for a sophisticated and classy seaside wedding.
One of our favorite spots among the trees is the Santa Lucia Preserve. This stunning Carmel property has it all between the tall redwood groves, open meadows, and a beautiful barn. It is a great option for those who want the rustic feel of the redwoods, yet easily accessible - only minutes from Carmel Valley and Carmel-By-The-Sea.
Holman Ranch is one of our favorite venues to work at. If you are looking for a vineyard location with the feel of Tuscany, this ranch is perfect! The property has a gorgeous lawn for the ceremony with a backdrop of Carmel Valley. There are several cobblestone courtyards and terraces for guests to enjoy, and a rustic barn filled with twinkle lights. In addition to these great locations where the wedding takes place, Holman Ranch will cart the bride and groom around the property to get epic shots in the vineyards, olive groves, and oak trees around the ranch!
The Beach and Tennis Club at the Pebble Beach Resort has stunning indoor and outdoor locations for a wedding. This resort is set on the Pebble Beach golf course, and overlooks Stillwater Cove. The Beach and Tennis Club has mostly glass walls, so you and your guests will not miss out on any of these tranquil and beautiful views!
Do you want to have a wedding day where you can walk back to your room at the end of the night? Gardener Ranch is a lovely property in Carmel Valley that offers all inclusive packages. There are several lush lawns, a clubhouse, and a fabulous pool deck that allow for many different spaces to use for ceremony, cocktails, and dinner. There are five large guesthouses that the couple and a selected group of guests can stay at, all surrounding the main part of the property. In addition to these perks, basic rentals are also included so you won't have to worry about bringing them in from elsewhere.
