Like Nowhere Else on Earth

You’re about to embark on one of the biggest adventures of your life. It’s far from an ordinary day — and that’s why you deserve an extraordinary celebration in one of the world’s most iconic destinations.

Imagine saying your vows overlooking the canyons and forest, or surrounded by redwoods. Enjoying a sunset reception or dinner under a canopied arbor. And dancing under the stars to celebrate your new adventure together.

Every couple wants an unforgettable place to say “I do,” and Ventana rises to the occasion. Sur Vista is a beautiful terrace overlooking the expanse of Big Sur. The Redwood Circle of Life is a small, protected area encircled by majestic trees — just right for exchanging vows. And the rolling meadows and enveloping canopy of the Redwood Cathedral are both rustic and romantic.

When the reception begins, the new 7,000-square-foot Ocean Meadow Lawn awaits. Perfect for ceremonies as well, it overlooks the fabled backdrop of the Central California coastline, with the ocean on one side and a stunning redwood forest on the other. There’s simply no place like it on Earth.

With space for up to 200 guests, it is the premier setting for your special day and can be tented if desired — allowing for year-round events. Attendees can revel around cozy fire pits and relax in Adirondack chairs, all while noshing on the creative and delectable coastal cuisine of Executive Chef Keith Potter. And even in the middle of Big Sur, Ventana’s intimate setting will create an exclusive and private feel for weddings of all sizes.

Redwood Cathedral

As natural and as beautiful as the act of falling in love, this dramatic, organic sanctuary is easily accessible yet feels a world away. Ancient, noble redwoods lend a dramatic and reverential air to the entire affair, conjuring a soaring tribute to your union -- a marriage that will thrive both now and forever. Redwood Cathedral will comfortably accommodate 200 guests.
