Glorious Summer Weddings
It's not to late to plan one!
In the mountains above the sea is a place of romantic beauty. Ventana. In Spanish, Ventana means window, and no more fitting name could be chosen. With more than 50 mile vistas of the rugged Big Sur Coast, Ventana Inn & Spa offers a spectacular setting for memorable summer weddings. From the most intimate ceremony to an extravagant celebration, a wedding terrace specifically designed for romantic ceremonies offers the ideal location for creating lifelong memories.
Effortless and serene, is Ventana’s commitment to bride and grooms. The Glorious Arbor Wedding package was created as a supplement to the guest room rate to simplify arrangements for those who would like an intimate and graceful wedding. The package includes all the essentials: wedding site, coordination services, flowers, photography, license, wedding celebrant and reception site.
- A non-denominational wedding celebrant will personalize a marriage ceremony to your specific preferences.
- A florist will artistically design two seasonal floral bouquets and two boutonnières for the ceremony along with four table arrangements, votive candles and cake top flowers for the reception.
- A professional wedding photographer will provide one hour of photography for the ceremony, 50 photos, and all of the negatives shipped with in 45 days of the wedding date.
The cost is $4900 plus applicable 20% service fee and 8.25% state tax with a dinner reception in Cielo required.
A romantic diner for 11- 40 guests will be arranged under the Arbor of Cielo restaurant. The dinner will include hors d’oeuvres, a three-course meal and a wedding cake at the conclusion of the meal. A supplemental f ee of $125 per person, plus service charges and applicable taxes will be charged.
The summer wedding package is offered Monday through Thursday, 4:30 p.m. - 10:00 p.m., excluding major holidays.
