Wedding Venues

Say “I do” at The Sanctuary Beach Resort, one of the most beautiful Monterey Bay wedding venues and “most instagrammable wedding locations“, with luxurious accommodations and an unbeatable seaside location. Set between a state park and the protected Marina Dunes Preserve, The Sanctuary Beach Resort welcomes guests to 19 acres of exclusive beachfront property.

Onsite wedding-planners specialize in designing breathtaking waterfront ceremonies that range from casual beach weddings to luxurious affairs. Bookable room blocks in the 60 cottage guest rooms allow couples to share their special day with large parties. Or, for a more intimate celebration, guests can have a small sunset ceremony with just their closest friends and family.

Brides and grooms can pamper themselves in this Monterey Beach wedding venue’s the Spa at Sanctuary Beach Resort, which offers a full range of massages and treatments. And just this year, The Sanctuary Beach Resort opened Salt Wood Kitchen & Oysterette Restaurant, our elegant California-fresh restaurant overlooking the Bay, and an ideal choice for rehearsal dinners or receptions.

“With luxurious accommodations and unbeatable coastal location, The Sanctuary Beach Resort specializes in hosting breathtaking waterfront ceremonies that range from rustic to luxurious. “

“Dana and her team are the absolute best. If I raved about exactly how happy I am about this venue, you’d get bored reading it. I booked without a single visit to the venue relying on only pictures, videos and testimonials. I was not disappointed.

It was everything they said it was going to be and more! There are many beautiful places to get married in Monterey … but the human aspect and customer service is where it makes a different. The folks at the Sanctuary are just incredible.”
