    Perfect Wedding!

    We met with Caitlin Michaels, coordinator, before booking the Plaza. She was able to walk us through what it would be like to have our wedding there. She worked with us to find the perfect wedding day that would match up with the church where we ended up getting married.

    Caitlin was very responsible through the wedding planning process. We enjoyed experience with the preferred vendors: Mike Danen Photography, Sarah Pink for flowers, Freedom Bakery and Confections, and Belmont Entertainment.

    Caitlin made the food tasting/linen section process very easy. A few months before the wedding, we met and did all the tastings. Everything was delicious! I wanted to switch out a vegetable, and we were able to do that.

    On the wedding day everything was executed perfectly. Caitlin set up all of our decorations, including the guestbook table, guest setting table, and put our favors. We had our cocktail party outside facing the ocean. It was beautiful and our guests enjoyed the hors d'oeuvre. Caitlin helped get everything into the reception room, the Monterey Bay Room.

    The food was delicious!! We went with steak or salmon. Caitlin came to check on us to make sure everything was perfect, which we appreciated.

    Overall, we enjoyed our experience. We had shopped at other reception venue locations in Monterey and we felt the Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa had the best value for the money. There were no hidden costs at the end, and we felt that we were treated well.
