My husband and I LOVED having our wedding at Sanctuary Beach Resort and we come back and stay at the resort every year for our anniversary. We began our search for a venue in spring of 2013. Once we agreed on a beach wedding in the Monterey area, we toured several venues along the Monterey coast. Sanctuary Beach Resort was initially not even on our list because of the maximum capacity listed for ceremonies but was our preferred accommodation location. When we saw the beach, we fell in love! When we met the wedding coordinator, Amanda (no longer at Sanctuary) we were sold.

Because Sanctuary had a 75 person limit on ceremonies, we had to get special permission to hold our 200-person wedding there. After some discussion, they said okay! We negotiated and came to an agreement on a very reasonable price for the venue (which is really the same amount we would have paid to do a DIY beach wedding given licensing, rental of chairs etc... so really a great value). Amanda, the coordinator, was wonderful to work with and we began getting ready for our special day.

We had a few hiccups along the way, Amanda left and there was some confusion internally at the resort about who we were to coordinate with and what was actually include din our package. So, we were slightly frustrated but then things started to smooth out when Jeff and Derrick bean working with us. Phew!

Our wedding day itself went along without issue and the Sanctuary staff were very accommodating to us and our guests. They even through in a champagne toast one the beach as our cocktail hour with the champagne we provided! I must say, the end of September is an amazing time to have a beach wedding on the California coast. Not only did all of our wonderful family and friends come to celebrate with us, the wales and dolphins were there as well! It was miraculous! To top it all off, included in the wedding package is a bonfire with snacks for guests which was wonderful!
