Ventana Inn is a dreamy place to have a wedding, it's such a unique and enchanting venue!! The scenic views are absolutely jaw-dropping, the food is to die for, and the service is superb. My guests were so excited for the opportunity to visit this special spot, and I know I'll be coming back for years to come. Ventana is my 'happy place'.

Sophia, the catering sales manager, worked tirelessly with me for an entire year to make sure that my wedding was perfect. I can get really intense when it comes to working out details and budgets but she was always right on my level, totally proactive about every detail. Now I feel like she is more of a friend than a business partner! She and her team bent over backwards more times than I can count so that my every expectation was exceeded. I've never experienced better service anywhere in my life.

The one drawback about choosing Ventana was the price tag, which was considerable. But there is simply no other place like Ventana in Big Sur, and you get what you pay for! We're very glad that we were able to celebrate our special day here.

My husband and I used Ventana Inn & Spa for our small wedding ceremony this past October and I can't say enough good things about the venue and staff. We had a last-minute issue with our existing venue and engaged Ventana just three weeks before our wedding. They were incredibly responsive, helpful, and offered a beautiful spot for the ceremony. Sophia, the Catering Sales Manager, went above and beyond to ensure everything went smoothly on our wedding day and was just a dream to work with.
