    Style & Elegance

    My niece Jennifer Beals and her husband to be Derek recently held their wedding and reception at he Monterey Dance & Event Center. We were pleasantly surprised with how perfectly this venue lent itself for both events. The wedding set up, platform and lighted arch trellis was beautiful. Seating for the wedding ceremony was comfortable and ample. All done in elegant creamy hews. Parking was readily available as well for all the guests. Everyone congregated in the foyer with hors d'oeuvres adjacent to the bar area while the seating was quickly rearranged for the reception. Again, the décor and seating perfectly accommodated everyone with ample room for the dance celebration. Both bride and groom appeared to thoroughly enjoy their special evening with family and friends.

    Thank you Monterey Dance & Event Center for a wonderful wedding and celebration experience!

    Jennifer & Derek's Wedding Review

    On Feb 29th my dear Niece and Her fiancé tied the knot at Monterey Dance & Event Center. It was a wonderful experience from arrival appetizers and prelim cocktails to The beautiful wedding and extraordinary reception with DJ music and photo booth and lots of area to mingle. It was beautifully organized and everyone had such a great time dancing and mingling and eating. My husband and I enjoyed ourselves immensely. I would highly recommend Monterey Dance and Event Center, it was classy, fun and very professionally done without pretentiousness. Well Done!

    Wow....Happy Bride Here!!

    Wow just wow. Happy bride here. From the venue allowing you to bring in your own drinks, bartenders, caterers but they supply with fee DJ, chairs, tables, linens and seating chart maps you can have the most elegant wedding on a beer budget. The venue backdrop had high archways and chandeliers with up-lighting and disco ball, I saved so much money NOT having decorations (no flowers). Such a cool thing, the venue changes colors throughout the night. We started with gold lighting during dinner and changed to a soft blue for dancing. I saw my guests pictures posted on fb and every square inch of this venue is beautiful from the dance floor, bar area, bathrooms and bridal suite from the floors to the archways. My nieces were always in the bridal suite because it’s so cute and feminine. The dance floor is amazing and the venue helps coordinate your first dance song…no boring spinning around and around, but a dance that showcases every inch of your bridal dress.
    Let’s not forget about the location, the real star of this venue!! The location, right across the street from the Monterey mall with Whole Foods and Rite Aid. There are 5 hotels within 2 blocks of the venue. Feel free about letting your guests drink alcohol all night long because they can walk back to their hotel rooms. I hired Michell as the wedding coordinator through the venue. Such a reasonable rate. She is worth three times the amount she charged and answered every question, phone call and email within hours. Michell even booked the salon for my wedding party’s hair next door to the venue when I forgot.
    The groom and I paid for our own wedding and we were on a tight budget. Since we brought in our own food, drinks and decorations, it became an affordable wedding with happy guests.
