The Monterey Beach House

Picturing a magical wedding right on the beach? The Monterey Beach House has the best set up on the Peninsula!

Located next to a waterfront park and wharf, and within walking distance to Monterey hotels and activities, the Beach House is located as close to the waves as you can get. The steps of its broad front deck descend onto the sand, and since Central Coast Events lays claim to its own stretch of this pristine shoreline, they’ll set up your event right at the water’s edge.

Inside The Beach House, the interior features light, faux-finished floors and draped ceilings with twinkle lights. The neutral palette allows you to dress up the beach house for a sophisticated soirée or embrace a beach themed event to complement the natural coastal atmosphere.

Stunning vistas and a romantic “toes in the sand” ceremony will surely make your day memorable.

The Old Whaling Station Historic Adobe and Gardens

In the heart of Historic Downtown Monterey this charming white home, built in 1847 serves as the backdrop to a picture-perfect rose garden and is one of the most romantic garden venues in the area.

Brides are welcomed to get ready in an old fashioned parlor that conjures up visions of southern belles and handsome beaus. While walking through the garden, dominated with stucco arches, columns and a trellis overhead you are transported to another, more peaceful time. A nearby fountain becomes a place where guests and loved ones can throw a penny to wish the couple a happy and prosperous life.

Great care has been put into the preservation of this beautiful historic site and it can host cozy affairs of up to 125 guests.  But we think you will find that the peaceful setting at The Old Whaling Station makes for a stunning and memorable event. Contact us for more info!

Garden entrance for a Monterey California destination wedding


The Memory Garden, Monterey

Nestled in the heart of Monterey, California within walking distance of hotels, restaurants and the ocean you’ll find the beautiful historic Memory Garden.

Framed on three sides by tall adobe walls with graceful arched cutouts and on the fourth by the Pacific House, an elegant 1847 Spanish-Colonial style building, it’s a grand plaza suitable for all kinds of events. Four 75-year-old magnolias shade the plaza, their branches casting an intricate web of shadows on the ground. In spring and summer the trees also provide a gorgeous floral display, along with the other flowers planted along the perimeter. A fountain burbling in the courtyard’s center soothes the ear, while sea breezes supply natural air-conditioning. Sure to be memorable for your special event.

Corporate picnics, luncheons and dinners are popular here, but the Garden is especially lovely for weddings. The site can accommodate a formal dinner for 300 guests, yet it’s warm and intimate enough for a casual gathering of 50.
