    We had our reception in the Barbara McNitt Ballroom and it was an amazing, historic venue. I could not have imagined our wedding anywhere else. The location or gorgeous - elegant and old fashioned. We visited other venues that felt cramped with no windows that made you feel like you were in a cave. The ballroom has tall windows overlooking a courtyard. It was reasonably priced back in 2004 compared to many other venues in the area.

We absolutely LOVE doing events at Club Del Monte at the Naval Postgraduate School. There is no finer ballroom on the peninsula with so much history and I just love sharing the history of the venue whenever introducing my couples to the site. Melanie and the rest of the staff at NPS are an absolute pleasure to work with and really understand the TEAM concept of creating an dream event for civilians and dignitaries alike. The food is beyond what most would expect from a military installment with Cordon Bleu trained Chef Hugh Butler at the helm. Overall, one of out favorite places to be on a Saturday night!
