I’m Dana.
I take destination wedding photography seriously. If I’m going to book a flight and travel across the ocean for you, I should probably show you that I know what I’m talking about.

If you are looking for wedding venues in Monterey, California, then you came to the right place!

Destinations with Dana

Hey, there! My name is Dana and I am a wedding photographer based out of Monterey, California. Since 2020, I have been photographing weddings here in the Bay Area, and to this date, have been some of my favorite venues to photograph weddings at!

I love what I do so much, which is serving beautiful couples getting married in Monterey, California. With its historic and charming beaches, piers, and shopping areas, it is no wonder that Monterey has become popular to get married in. Whether you are a local, a military couple stationed here, or a destination couple, there are venues for you!

Wedding Venues in Monterey California

There are three wedding venues in Monterey that are the most popular to get married at. We call them the ‘sister venues’ because they are all owned by the same company/ wedding planning team.

Each venue is unique to it’s own. One is in a quiet neighborhood perfect for small weddings. The second is a barn fir couples who crave that barn wedding style but still located in town. The third is a venue on the beach, newly renovated and has a S’mores pit!

Perry House Monterey

The historic Perry House is located in a community near Fisherman’s Warf. From the balcony of the house, you can see the town of Monterey. This house is newly painted white (it was yellow), has suites for both wedding parties, and is perfect for guests around 100 people. This is a venue that is popular to have both the ceremony and reception outdoors with dancing inside. Do not worry, there is a tent in case it rains.

The Barns

To me, The Barns is one of the most popular venues in Monterey all together. This venue is located in downtown Monterey and walking distance to Alvarado Street. As well as many popular hotels, and even a quick drive from the Monterey Airport. I love The Barns personally because it has a great outdoor space for ceremonies with many options to set it up, and indoor for receptions. You can also convert the outside for a reception as well if the weather is nice. Either way, dancing is done inside with plenty of room for guest count to be around 150 or so.

Monterey Beach Station

Another Monterey wedding venue I love is the Monterey Beach Station (formally known as Monterey Beach House). Also newly updated, this beach house sits right on Monterey Beach and across the parking lot from The Fisherman’s Warf, plus walking distance to a few hotels. I love this venue because it is perfect for beach ceremonies, and indoor modern look receptions.

These three Monterey wedding venues have become some of the most popular to have a wedding at. We (the wedding vendors) are a small community and we love working together to make sure the couples have the best experience on their wedding day.

I am so fortunate to be a preferred wedding photographer for all three venues. I will always love to serve any couple getting married at any of these venues!
