    Exceptional in Every Way!

    Our Experience with the Sea Venture Inn was exceptional. Every last detail was considered and the Planner, Amanda was an ultimate professional. Each vendor handled our needs, requests and last minute emergencies with a smile and a "don't worry, we got this!" kind of attitude. If you are considering an all inclusive location, this was awesome!

    They care for their clients in a personal level!

    I had the pleasure to work with Amanda who was coordinating a wedding we both were working on. She was very easy to talk to and professional. I admired how easy it was to communicate with her and how her priority was to please her client. She genuinely cared for our bride to have the best experience. It is wonderful to work with other professionals that are interested in a clients experience and eager to get along with the entire team. If you’re thinking of booking with the SeaVenture, you won’t be disappointed. They are hands on and Amanda was a perfect example of that!

    It couldn't be better

    It was more dreamy than we expected, walking down the aisle barefoot and saying our vows to the beautiful beach and cliff backdrop at Pismo. We are so glad that we have Amanda as our wedding coordinator. She took care of everything leading up to the wedding and helped make our day smooth and easy.

    They were so awesome!

    We found the SeaVenture by pure luck when looking around on google maps. We really couldn't believe what a great deal it was! The all inclusive package made things a lot easier! And we got so much for the price. If any future brides have hesitations about booking the SeaVenture my advice is: don't!! You get so much bang for your buck. All the staff was super friendly and helpful. Everything went so smooth thanks to our wedding coordinator Lauren and DJ Tim. The whole process leading up to the wedding was easy, mostly through email which was better for us because we could do it on our own time. The wedding exceeded our expectations. We are so happy we found this hotel. We will be back for years to celebrate our anniversaries.

    Everything with Sea Venture exceeded my expectations. From the beginning, Elyse and Lauren were responsive in answering any questions I had and wanted to make sure everything was as I needed it when I booked for a small Tuesday wedding. Elyse continued to follow through and was nothing but a delight to work with. She is professional, friendly and made sure that literally every single detail was taken care of. The restaurant is exceptional and the details of making menus for each place setting was really awesome. All of my guests agreed that the food was amazing! The vendors that they used for flowers, dj, officiant, are all top-notch and there was not a single thing I was dissappointed in or wished was done better. My wedding was perfect and I can’t thank Sea Venture enough!

    Elyse and Lauren were amazing to work with. They were in constant communication throughout the whole planning process and there was not a moment that I felt stranded. The wedding they helped plan was absolutely gorgeous and in my books was the best wedding ever! Elyse is honestly the best wedding coordinator and I would recommend her and this venue to anybody who asked.

    We had a wonderful experience with SeaVenture! Lauren and Elyse were always quick to respond to emails and phone calls. We dropped off our decorations box with Elyse the day before the wedding. My husband and I are very easy going so we let Elyse decide where the decorations should go. The venue was decorated beautifully and it was way beyond what I could have imagined. The day of the wedding ran very smooth and everyone had a fantastic time. Having our wedding at sea venture was worth every penny. It was perfect!!!

    My wedding with Sea Venture was everything I ever wanted and more! The wedding coordinator Elyse was so nice and worked so hard with and for me to make my day perfect. I decided on the all inclusive package at Sea Venture and was so thankful I did! All of the vendors were amazing. The team with Sea Venture were absolutely amazing! I honestly could not have asked for anything more! My wedding was literally flawless and went so smoothly! It helped me enjoy my day and be worry free! Since my wedding I have had guests tell me how much they enjoyed our wedding and that the food was the best wedding food they had ever had. Thank you Sea Venture!

    The entire staff was AMAZING!! From my first conversation with Lauren, I was convinced that the SeaVenture was the perfect venue for our wedding! And I was right! Our wedding was everything I've dreamed of and more! I have the entire staff at the SeaVenture to thank for making our day so special!

    I am quite a perfectionist and have to say that I was very nervous that about 2 months before my wedding date, the coordinator I had been working with resigned and they hired a replacement for her.... In the end, I had absolutely NOTHING to worry about!! Molly was incredible in fulfilling my entire vision for the wedding from start to finish and was so helpful in calming me about all the last minute details I was so stressed about! The staff was so accommodating, service was amazing and the food was sooooo delicious!

    All my guests raved about the food, the service and of course the incredible view!

    I only have one small negative comment, and that is there is unfortunately no bridal party suite, so you have to reserve rooms at the hotel to get ready in/ hang out before the ceremony.... not a lot of mirror space or sitting area in the rooms, so we were quite cramped in the room before the ceremony.... with that said, I would still do it all over again because it was such an insignificant inconvenience compared to how amazing everything else was!

    I highly highly highly recommend the SeaVenture! You can't beat their all inclusive package or the team they have on board to make your wedding day dreams come true!

    I can not say enough amazing things about the SeaVenture!! They went above and beyond the call of duty for our wedding! They had a wedding the day of our rehearsal a rehearsal after our wedding and one the sunday after but not once did i not feel like the center of their attention! The food was amazing as always and the service was EXCEPTIONAL!! Lauren and her team have mastered the art of weddings and the best part when you have your wedding there you get a free night stay every year on your anniversary date!! You cant beat that!! If you want a stress free wedding with an amazing location and view i HIGHLY recommend using them!!

    We couldn't be happier with the staff and service at SeaVenture. We had our ceremony on their beach, and our reception at their restaurant. Lauren and Tina were great to work with. They covered every detail and worked hard to create the wedding of our dreams. The ceremony was gorgeous...the location and chairs and arch were excellent. We had 150+ guests and reserved the whole restaurant for the reception. The food was excellent, from the presentation, to the quality, to the service. Simon runs a tight and organized restaurant. Everything went as planned. The staff went above and beyond to make our guests happy. Lauren was very flexible in letting us bring our own cultural foods for appetizers, and worked with us to keep our party going until midnight. Simon even let us keep dancing for a few more minutes past midnight. Tina was extremely nice and organized and was a pleasure to work with. Our wedding was everything we dreamed of and more thanks to the SeaVenture staff. Our families were so impressed by the scenery, the people, the views, the elegant hotel rooms, the wonderful food...we would do it all over again at the SeaVenture in a heartbeat!

    I really, really, wanted to get married in Hawaii but when that didn't work out I decided -- I live in California why can't I get married on the beach. After searching and searching for the perfect venue, I settled on the Sea Venture Resort. They provide all of the chairs, arch and set-up in their very affordable prices and they also can host the reception in their full ocean view restaurant upstairs at the hotel. This is a boutique hotel with just 50 rooms so it's maybe not appropriate for someone hoping for a large wedding but for our 60 guests we couldn't have imagined a more perfect location. Krista, their in house coordinator was a dream to work with and all of the restaurant staff was super helpful as well. My fiancée and I ate dinner at the restaurant before our event and both times the food was excellent. If you want a beach wedding -- you can't miss with the Sea Venture Resort!

    I had 3 months to plan my wedding and I live 3 hours away. Krista and all the staff at the Sea Venture were amazing! The weather was great, the food was delicious and the venue was beautiful! We stayed a few extra nights there at the hotel because we loved it so much, we even got breakfast delivered to our room! We had an ocean view room with a hot tub so we were able to relax under the stars after a full day of festivities. This was the most beautiful place to have our wedding and all on a budget. Thanks Sea Venture, especially Krista, for an amazing wedding and honeymoon! See ya next year!

    Our wedding was amazing, and the day was PERFECT! We owe so much of that to Lauren and the staff at the Sea Venture. It was truly a magical day; one that we had only dreamed and hoped was possible.

    Lauren and Krista covered every detail. They thought of things we never would have. The Sea Venture staff was always accessible. They kept us feeling relaxed and excited, special, and important. All our friends and family have said it was one of the best weddings EVER !!!!

    For any couples that are looking for a place to get married with your feet in the sand, a team of friendly people to take care of you, a reception with a gorgeous ocean view, great food and cozy guest rooms (with breakfast in bed!!!)…..The Sea Venture is the place for you The Pismo area is beautiful and there is so much to do in the surrounding areas. Gorgeous beaches, wine tasting, recreational activities, the list goes on.

    Weddings are one of those life events that people never forget, and making it as memorable as it was for us, is a gift that’s priceless. The Sea Venture gave us that gift. And the best part of all is now that our wedding day has come and gone, we can go back to the Sea Venture every year for our anniversary and reflect on our special memories. How cool is that ??

    Wonderful reception

    We held a small wedding reception at Sea Venture last month (41 people) and everything was perfect. Amanda was cheerful and fun to work with and she handled every detail. The food was excellent as was the service and we loved, loved the elegant room with the amazing ocean views! We would highly recommend this venue to others.

    I never would have thought a wedding could turn out so perfect with such little planning time (4 months). Krista Rupp made the entire process so easy and from all the decision making that went in to it before hand, and including the day of my daughter's wedding. Krista also assisted in the decorating and coordinated the ceremony. Thanks Krista for all your hard work! The service at our plated reception was fantastic as was the food! Room prices were a bit pricey but it was so convenient and such a special occasion we opted to splurge.

    Our wedding at the Sea Venture could not have been any better! The difficulty that we had were related to the front desk staff not ANYTHING about the wedding!!! Krista is ABSOLUTELY the best person ever...she was attentive to every detail, she set up my entire reception and it looked absolutely breathtaking. We had a lot of guests stay and just RAVE about everything related to Sea Venture. Plus the Anniversary Club membership is a good perk. The food was fantastic, the views breathtaking, and the staff was fantastic. If you are looking for a venue ON the beach, I can't imagine anywhere being better than the sea venture!

    Extraordinary to work with! Could not have planned our wedding so fast without the help of the Sea Venture staff! Perfect combination of beach wedding and beach front reception room! Food was extraordinary, staff was friendly! Everything happened without a single problem! Everything the Sea Venture could not provide themselves was neatly arranged on a vendor listing and the vendors we used were very helpful and skilled! I would recommend this wedding site to anyone interested in beach weddings on a budget!! $850 for the ceremony, $3200 for a reception of 40 people. Included several appetizers and tasty main course!
