The Monterey Beach Station is a coastal wedding venue in sunny California that invites you to say “I do” with your toes in the sand. Exchange vows in front of the waves with the Monterey Peninsula as your stunning backdrop, then walk off into a breathtaking sunset as your photographer snaps photos you will cherish forever. Meanwhile, your friends and family begin the party on a terrace facing the sea, enjoying conversation, cocktails, and hors d'oeuvres. As twilight descends, the celebration moves into the historic venue, which features views of city lights, Santa Lucia mountains, and the sparkling Pacific Ocean.

An absolute dream

We booked Monterey Beach Station for our wedding (6/3/2023) and we cannot recommend them enough. For over a year prior to the event, the staff at Events by Classic was personable, organized, and always quick to answer all our questions. They made planning a wedding from the other side of the country so easy! The day itself was, in a word, perfect: the venue was beautiful, the staff all-around incredible, the food and drink fantastic. If you are planning a wedding in Monterey, you cannot go wrong with Monterey Beach Station. Special thanks to our venue coordinator Frankie who runs the tightest ship I've ever seen and is all-around FANTASTIC.

Excellent experience!

My wife and I got married at the Monterey Beach Station in May 2024 and had a great experience!

From the beginning, the team at Monterey Beach Station was professional and helpful - they answered all our questions and quickly prepared a quote that was competitive and within our budget. Once we signed the contract, we were handed over to our Event Coordinator - Makenna - who was our dedicated contact through the planning and day-of.

Their company includes both the venue AND the caterer - sounds like their company started as a catering company, and the food was phenomenal! To taste their food and select our event menu, we attended a group tasting with about a hundred other people who were hosting events with their company…was a super smart approach, because we got to see them prepare and serve food for a large group in buffet-style service, as it would be at our wedding.

While all of the necessary items for a successful event are already included in the contract, beware of added costs for little “extras”, such as the outdoor string lights…these string lights would create a beautiful aesthetic, but we did not use them and still had plenty of light outside once the sun set, because the building has outdoor lighting.

Overall we had an amazing event and would recommend this venue and team!
