Extremely Blessed to be Married at Perry House

I just want to give a big shout out to Frankie and her team for all of their hard work on our day! The Perry House was a dream come true. We will cherish our moments there for a lifetime! I highly recommend this place for intimate weddings! Beyond magnificent!

Absolute perfection

How much more can we add that hasn't already been written by dozens of other 5-star couples? We didn't have a dream wedding in mind; our main goal was to spend as little money and effort as possible to host a fantastic party for our friends and family (and, also, get married). With the Perry House, we got that and so much more.

Can we just talk quickly about the value of a full-service venue? Catering, drinks, staff, linens, tables, chairs, those cute little string lights, heating lamps--it's all just there. You don't have to think about it, you don't need to add it to your checklist, you don't need to deal with last-minute snafus. The Perry House does it ALL, and also has fun add-ons (like a fire pit for late-night s'mores and a pizza oven for a late-night snack--BIG hits with our guests). And it's not like you're sacrificing quality for convenience; the food is phenomenal (don't sleep on the rockfish if it's available), the kids meals are served in the most adorable little dishes (macaroni in an espresso cup?? stop), the staff is efficient and knowledgeable and helpful and in every way perfect.

Speaking of staff--what would we have done without our day-of coordinator, Charlene? Her services were included in the cost of the venue rental, and she was an angel sent from above. She helped us through every step of the process, including planning the timeline for the day, the structure of toasts, the flow from dinner into dancing, and more. Day-of, she helped coordinate communication from VIP guests who were running late due to traffic, directed the processional, made sure the dinner and toasts ran on time, and, well, probably a lot of other things, but we didn't notice because she did it all flawlessly in the background. We are so appreciative for everything she did to make our wedding magical.

Our guests could not stop raving about how incredible our wedding was, and I cannot stress enough how little we actually did to make that happen; all we did was book the Perry House and let the staff do its work. The elegant space, the full-service bar, the ocean view from the terrace, the exceptional food...the Perry House delivered beyond our wildest dreams, and we would recommend it to anyone planning their wedding around the Monterey Bay.

The perfect venue for our mid-size wedding

The Perry House was an amazing venue for us in every possible way. They were quick to get back to us on any questions (and we had a lot) and efficient with our time getting all the details ironed out. Charlene and Tammy were both wonderful and we're very grateful they helped make our day even more special than it already was.
Day-of they were super organized and everything went smoothly without any worries on our side. They were very professional with the whole event, start to finish.
The food was a definite standout (get the ravioli!) but the venue itself was gorgeous as well. It made figuring out decorations much less stressful knowing that if we did nothing it would still look lovely.
We had about 80 guests and they all had a fantastic time.
We felt very supported throughout the whole process of organizing the event and would highly recommend The Perry House for any mid-size wedding.

The Perry-Downer House is my new favorite venue. The renovation of this historic property was done with some much love--it shows in every detail. The easy floorplan and sweeping views are just two of the wonderful things I love about the Perry House. The food, the location and the people are all assets and I don't think that you can find a better venue for the price. I love the Perry-Downer House!
