About The Barns at Cooper Molera

The Barns at Cooper Molera is a rustic wedding venue in Monterey, California. This barn was built in the late 19th century, but has been recently renovated to accommodate modern weddings with a historic, country-chic twist. The Barn provides a natural wooden venue for intimate gatherings and grand events alike. The grounds surrounding the Barn and adobe houses provide a beautiful, serene place for you to exchange your vows and enjoy the natural splendor that Cooper Molera has to offer. If you’re looking for a historical and unique wedding venue, The Barns at Cooper Molera is an ideal choice.

Facilities and Capacity
The Barns at Cooper Molera is comprised of a classic barn, adobe (clay-brick) house structures, and beautiful outdoor grounds for your ceremony and reception spaces. You will start your day in the Jockey’s Loft, a luxury bridal suite with modern amenities and refreshments served by the Cooper Modera staff. As you move from the loft to the outdoor ceremony space, you’ll be pleased by the venue’s smattering of oak trees and and roses coloring the distant orchards. After the ceremony, guide your guests into the barnyard where natural light meets romantic atmosphere. The 19th century style decor and furnishings add a distinctive charm, and lantern lighting outside will only enhance the magic and ambiance of your big day.

Services Offered
The Barns at Cooper Molera does everything in their power to make your wedding day a happy, stress-free day to remember. On the morning of the wedding they will help you set up equipment, place decor, and ensure everything is ready for your ceremony and reception. Before the ceremony they provide the wedding party with drinks and snacks, as well as pre-ceremony refreshments for your guests as they arrive. After cocktail hour, you and your guests will be served a custom-made menu, including delicious hors d’oeuvres, plated and buffet-style entrees, and late-night snacks to keep your guests’ energy up throughout the evening.

Other Facilities
The Barns at Cooper Molera has a sister venue, The Perry House, also located in Monterey County. This venue has a rustic theme, but is more European inspired than the Cooper Molera.

    Blown Away!

    We pulled it off! When we started planning our wedding almost one year ago we thought we had found our dream venue to host our 120 guests for a night to remember. As anyone reading this will know as 2020 progressed we became more and more familiar with living in a pandemic and the challenges that can provide. Once it became clear that there was no way we could host our wedding as we had originally intended; our event coordinator Amanda from the events by classic group could not have been more helpful providing us with options. She of course offered us a 2021 date should we choose to postpone, but instead we chose a different option she presented to us that would both make our guests feel safe to attend and satisfy our needs of a special day to remember. We held our ceremony at their sister venue, The Perry House followed by a small dinner reception in the beautiful courtyard at the barns.

    Everything turned out so beautiful, and we all had such a wonderful time. The food and drinks provided by the events by classic group were stellar, and I could not speak any higher praises of Amanda, our event coordinator. She kept everything on schedule and really brought our dreams to life. If you, like we were, are on the fence about having a wedding in a covid world I hope my words help you find comfort in knowing that you will be well taken care of by the events by classic team at the barns or any of their other venues.
