    A Wedding to Remember

    The views of Wind and Sea make it worth paying for a bus to drive 70 of your closest friends and family down from Carmel, constantly reminding friends/family that they can’t bring their own cars, and the motion-sickness that took out my groom for an hour the morning of our wedding.

    It was absolutely worth it in every way. I had a few friends in advance who were skeptical of showing up at a house and being stranded there for 6-7 more hours for the wedding and reception, but everyone made the same face when they walked in - absolute shock and awe. The seals barked in the background well into the evening, and you could hear the waves crashing from the lower fire pit when everyone sat in happy reverence for a second. We used the copper bathtubs as coolers and let our guests stroll around the entire beautiful property with fork-friendly food stations set up both upstairs and downstairs.

    Chris (the on-site venue coordinator) was extremely helpful as we tried to add a speaker to the Sonos sound system during the morning of our wedding (spoiler alert: that didn’t work), but everyone gave it their best shot. Chris came around as we were all cleaning at the end of the night and helped us figure out what needed to be put away before the next guests and what flowers we could leave as a treat.

    NOTE: We didn’t plan this well in advance since we hadn’t noticed, but the site is not friendly for people who have issues walking on uneven surfaces (i.e. older guests, small children, etc.) My nephew ran off the beaten path and was telling us how great the beach is (a beach 200+ stairs away), and it kept quite a few of us on high alert the rest of the evening. Also, my great uncle couldn’t make the stairs down to the lower ceremony site and watched from the upper patio. It all worked out fine, but I felt like we personally didn’t consider it enough in advance. This is absolutely nothing against Wind & Sea, but I wanted to communicate it to anyone else who feels like there is a risk.

    Wind and Sea's reply:

    Hi Alissandria,

    Thank you for all your kind words! We will definitely work on the speaker and we're already thinking of ways we can make the place more handicap accessible, but yes its quite challenging in terrain like Big Sur. Glad you had a beautiful wedding and hope to see you again soon.
