Having the best of both worlds, The Perry House lends itself to combined indoor/outdoor gatherings. When you choose The Perry House, your special occasion is the star! No "factory-style events" allowed, you might even consider it a bit "non-traditional." We book the house and grounds for only one event at a time so your care and comfort can be our highest priority. The Perry House is a gorgeous setting and an ideal location where special memories are made!

The Perry House is an Historic Monterey building originally built in 1860. A complete renovation of the property has taken place to turn it into a one of a kind private events venue. With spectacular day and evening views of Monterey Bay and Harbor, as well as beautiful gardens, The Perry House offers the perfect backdrop for your very special day.

Amenities include a fire-pit, 10 foot pizza oven, bridal changing room, speaker system throughout, space to roam and mingle, ample parking across the street and a 2 minute walk to hotels, bars and restaurants. The food and service is expertly handled by a well respected 5-Star catering company -- Classic Catering. Owners of Classic Catering, Dean & Debbie Young, a husband and wife team, have been creating memorable occasions for their clients since 2001, and you will find Classic Catering to be the epitome of a company that is willing to go above and beyond for the satisfaction of their guests!

We had our wedding reception at the Perry House on June 3rd in the evening. It was picture-perfect with the beautiful Victorian house and theme, scenic views from the third floor balcony of the Monterey Bay and nighttime skyline. The attendants were professional and friendly. The food was deliciously prepared and passed around in a timely fashion. The bar tender was fantastic and made his place look clean and professional. Our guests all thanks us for including on this beautiful venue. The night was perfectly wonderful. We could live there. We highly recommend this venue and Classics Catering for your special occasion. You will be more than pleased. Big shout out to Richard Wood, Senior Sales/Event Manager.

My now husband and I got married at the Perry House in May 2015. The venue, the staff, the view, everything ended up just perfectly. I knew from the first time I saw the Perry House it had the unique feel I was looking for. It is a smaller venue and we wanted a smaller unique event, which was absolutely perfect. Honestly, the food at our wedding was INCREDIBLE. Our friends and family are still talking about it. I have been to so many weddings where the food is just ok. If you are looking for a unique location with something special, The Perry House is fabulous. We added the Day of Coordinator and worked with Hana Nishiguchi. She was FABULOUS. Hana made me feel so at ease with the hole thing. From the beginning to the very end of the actual wedding evening, Hana was right there for me. She was a great listener and had lots of good advise when I asked her for it. She responded to all my emails for over a year!!! Thank you Hana and the entire staff at the Perry House. I would highly recommend them. We will never forget our amazing wedding! Thank you

After searching high and low for a wedding venue, I hopped on Wedding Wire and found The Perry House. We made an appointment to meet with a coordinator, and as soon as I stepped into the place, I KNEW this was where I wanted to get married. It's a beautiful space, with so much charm and character. We had two more venues to look at, but cancelled our viewing appointments as soon as we left The Perry House.

The Perry House was restored to perfection some years ago, and it is the absolute most perfect setting for an intimate or bigger wedding. It is a beautifully done historic Victorian, and the views are amazing

Our wedding at was everything we wanted and more. From day one, the staff and our Peace-of-Mind coordinator RIchard, never let us down and always gave us top-notch service. We couldn't be happier with how everything turned out.

They also made sure we were taken care of on the day of, making sure we actually ate the amazing food we picked out, and keeping our drinks replenished, and of course making sure all of our decor was perfectly placed. Everyone was professional, friendly and warm, and our guests are still raving about everything.

I would definitely recommend giving this venue a visit, and I will continue to refer business to them whenever possible. They truly deserve it!

First off.... Thank You: Thank You: Thank You: to everyone at Classic Catering and the Perry House for the most magical night of our lives and making this most important evening go off without a trace of anxiety and/or apprehension. And a special thanks to Erin for being there from the very start to make a process so foreign and scary that it was AS EASY as sitting down for a family meal.
I feel bad that it has taken this long to get this posting out there but it has taken 8 months to find the words to extrapolate from what was just a memory of an event that has become more an emotion. It's not as simple as just pontificating the magic of the most extraordinary night, it's expressing an emotional experience.

It's a long story that I'm glad to share, but for those of you who need to be persuaded in 140 characters or less.... Here you have:

#Don't make the biggest mistake on the most important night of your life when you will express your love for the person you will spend the rest of your life with! (150 characters, whatever)

First off...the Service, was out of this world. Not one thing went wrong. They even let us change the uniforms the staff wore. Everyone treated our friends and family like family.

Secondly, the Food... 5 Star. Did I mention that the reception was in a barn, and everything was prepped and served from a field tent in the middle of a horse pasture as far away from a kitchen as you could get. Sea Bass and Lamb grilled on site, to Perfection!

And finally.... the Staff... from day one, everyone was beyond exceptional. I have to personally thank Erin for her hand holding from start to finish. We had a extraordinary vision and this staff made it happen to the last detail. October 11th, 2014 was an evening enjoyed by all and to never be forgotten.

Rick and Jeff.

The Perry House is a fantastic venue for anyone looking to get married in Monterey. My husband and I were recently married and couldn't have asked for a better place. We live out of state, and as I was going through countless venue websites, something about this place just seemed special. It was months into planning before we ever had a chance to see it, and we were certainly not disappointed. The staff, and especially our coordinator Richard, made planning a destination wedding as easy as it could be. They also worked seamlessly with my wedding planner.

The venue is gorgeous and does not need much in the way of outside decorations. The bridal room is beautiful and a great place for taking pictures and getting ready! The staff is very accessible and very helpful with all the steps of planning. They do have their own catering company, and you won't be disappointed. We did steak and salmon as well as a taco bar and it was all outstanding. My husband comes from a family that loves to cook, and food was a very important factor to us. The staff is so attentive the day of and made sure that my husband and I had a plate of food as soon as it was served and kept our drinks filled all night long. I've heard so many stories of the bride and groom never even getting to eat on their wedding night; this was definitely not the case. We did a roaming style reception which I was initially worried about having only been to weddings with formal seating...it was perfect! It allowed all our guests to mingle and truly enjoy what the property had to offer. I had relatives actually tell me they thought they owed us a thank you card for having such a fun weekend!
All in all, we could not have asked for anything better. Richard and the staff at the Perry House are top notch! The entire weekend was perfect. We would without hesitation recommend The Perry House to anyone! Jenifer & Beau

We had a wedding eve party here in late August 2014. The place is fantastic - quaint old house very well set up to host parties. Great views of the Bay and wharf.

Food here is outstanding and the staff is very helpful and flexible in terms of providing us access to set up decorations, baking and serving the bread pudding we brought along and in general doing everything to help us with the event.

I recommend it strongly.

There are not enough words to describe the amazing experience we had with the Perry House and the entire staff! From the first meeting with the owner Jim, to the brilliant ideas ands resources of the wedding planner. Erin Wareham is the best thing to happen to me while planning this wedding and I could have not have asked for a kinder, more creative or more helpful person to make my day special. For the day of, we had Patricia and another lovely girl whose name I am forgetting who made sure we were happy, that we ate, and that took our ideas and made them come to life!

Let me tell you also about the food. It was amazing! We did the strolling seating, which I was initially nervous about, but worked out perfectly! We had amazing appetizers and the stations were enjoyed by all! We personally had Mac and cheese, grill, and pizza stations. Just before the wedding date, they even asked us for counts for vegetarians, vegans and people who are gluten free or have allergies so they could accommodate them.

Bring in a different state, the Perry House made it so easy and took a lot of stress off of me. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to get married in the Monterey area. There is a reason they are ranked number one for locations to get married in for Monterey!

I can't express enough how happy I was to have chosen The Perry House for my daughter's wedding. This venue is a 10 all the way around. I was privileged to have worked with Erin. She was FANTASTIC from the very 1st stage of planning to the minute the ceremony began (literally). The food was excellent, we chose the roaming reception & highly recommend this service. The head of catering that evening, Jennifer, was wonderful as well as her staff. We've had many comments from friends & family as "hands down, the best wedding ever".

There truly isn't much that can be said here that hasn't already been said, The Perry House is an A++ venue and it is a true value on top of that. If you are considering The Perry House don't waste another minute and make an appointment! You will not be disappointed.

I will try to keep this to the point:

Location - Cannot be beat. GORGEOUS venue, views and walking distance to downtown Monterey saves a bundle on transportation costs and makes it really easy to plan the "after party".

Value - I had a limited budget for my wedding, and once you consider everything included in The Perry House package you are looking at a much more reasonable number than anywhere else in the area.

Service - talk about a dream! Your event captain is more like a wedding planner, the details are taken care of, your concerns are put to ease, and you feel from the start that you are in good hands.

We had so many compliments on the venue and FOOD. Every bride's dream!

I would 100% choose The Perry House all over again.
