I cannot say enough about our experience with Events by Classic Group and their Monterey Beach House venue! Our guests cannot stop raving about how beautiful the interior was, how seamless everything was, and how incredibly professional Susan and her team were. The event staff was on top of everything from keeping the outdoor firepits stoked and warm to refreshing drinks when they were low. My reception far surpassed anything I could have dreamed of and cannot thank Susan and her team enough!Sent on 03/02/2020

Amazing best day ever!
We had the most amazing experience! This is the perfect place for a wedding right on the beach! Our guests commented that this was one of the most enjoyable weddings they had been too. There was something for everyone to do, we had s’mores & bon fires & kids played in the sand. The food & staff were amazing!Sent on 12/12/2019

Change of hands
After we had confirmed booking the Monterey Beach House as our venue, we found out that the venue would be under new management; we weren't sure what to expect and how this transition would effect us, but we are pleased to say that our day went smoothly! With the help of our amazing planner and the upgrades the venue underwent prior to our event, I feel we really lucked out a benefited from the change. Beverly was our main point of contact regarding the venue and she was very kind, we also had the pleasure of meeting the owner during our event, both whom wanted to make our wedding day perfect and to our liking; they were very determined to be sure our expectations were met. We feel the venue and those servicing our event, exceeded our expectations; the venue holds tremendous value for having access to the beach for the entire event, with bonfires, smores and the options of games on the sand, there was something to do for everyone! The outside may not look like much at first, but inside is spacious with romantic twinkle string lights draped across the ceiling and a neutral slate to really make it your own. The view is outstanding with a great mix of the wharf and the coastline lit up and the beautiful sunset for our evening wedding! Plus we couldn't beat our toes in the sand ceremony; by far the best beach front value in our eyes with the most access to the beach throughout your event! It was just right for our beach chic wedding!Sent on 11/08/2019
Monterey Beach House's reply:“Toes- in-the-sand Show Stopper Wedding” took on a whole new meaning when the stunning couple, Cassie and Blake’s, adorable youngest Flower Girl stole the show and kept the bride waiting when she sat down to play, the minute her bare little toes touched the sand! Wishing Cassie & Blake much happiness and a lifetime of showstopping memories! Cheers and thank you for your kind words! ~ Beverly & Team

Monterey Beach Parties is one of our favorite places to photograph weddings. Our couples tell us they have come to this venue for their dream wedding on the beach. Sand between toes, seagulls flying, waves crashing, sunsets and barbecued steak & lobster, this place offers all the best. We work very closely with the staff and are always amazed how friendly and efficient they are. Our job is easy just photographing extremely happy people celebrating wonderful occasions at this unique venue!
