Ventana Inn is a dreamy place to have a wedding, it's such a unique and enchanting venue!! The scenic views are absolutely jaw-dropping, the food is to die for, and the service is superb. My guests were so excited for the opportunity to visit this special spot, and I know I'll be coming back for years to come. Ventana is my 'happy place'.Sent on 07/30/2016
Sophia, the catering sales manager, worked tirelessly with me for an entire year to make sure that my wedding was perfect. I can get really intense when it comes to working out details and budgets but she was always right on my level, totally proactive about every detail. Now I feel like she is more of a friend than a business partner! She and her team bent over backwards more times than I can count so that my every expectation was exceeded. I've never experienced better service anywhere in my life.
The one drawback about choosing Ventana was the price tag, which was considerable. But there is simply no other place like Ventana in Big Sur, and you get what you pay for! We're very glad that we were able to celebrate our special day here.

My husband and I used Ventana Inn & Spa for our small wedding ceremony this past October and I can't say enough good things about the venue and staff. We had a last-minute issue with our existing venue and engaged Ventana just three weeks before our wedding. They were incredibly responsive, helpful, and offered a beautiful spot for the ceremony. Sophia, the Catering Sales Manager, went above and beyond to ensure everything went smoothly on our wedding day and was just a dream to work with.Sent on 11/03/2015

If you are dealing with The amazing wedding crew at the Ventana, then I hope you brought along extra tissues for the emotional beauty of this rare jeweled location perched high above the cliffs of Big Sur. We've photographed three lovely wedding celebrations on the property, and each time the event flowed effortlessly, thanks to the careful planning and sincere kindness of the staff. The grounds, menu, and views are magnificent, and we can't wait to photograph at this wonderful location throughout the future. It's quiet and serene, and the tones and layout of the property are a photographer's dream...
The uniqueness of Ventana Inn & Spa is in their location, in the beautiful Big Sur area of California, it's attention to detail and it's unsurpassed quality of accommodations. When you stay at Ventana, the rest of the world melts away and you are free to enjoy your surrounding and just relax.....doing the things that make you feel good.
