A Big Sur Wedding Overlooking the Ocean

An intimate and elegant wedding in Big Sur at the Wind and Sea venue

When I think of Big Sur, I get BIG heart eyes. It's such a special place in California and so incredibly romantic. I remember when the inquiry came in for Lissa & Stephen's wedding! Which says something because I can barely remember what I did two days ago. That weekend we were doing a wedding in Utah and I said, "I'd like to manifest one more wedding this year in November." Only a few days later, I was graced with this Wedding Management booking. Lissa is a do-it-yourself, organized bride which is perfect for that package so I knew it would be a good fit.

The Venue

Lissa & Stephen chose Wind & Sea as their venue. A venue that Gabby had personally looked at booking for her own wedding! We were excited for the opportunity as it would be our first time there and truly a unique venue. Wind & Sea has a max. capacity of 120, however, it probably works best for about half that guest count which is right about where Lissa & Stephen landed. The space doesn't need much to enhance it but does need a lot of attention when it comes to planning. Guests have to be shuttled in and there's a ton of levels on the property to work between! Meaning you have a lot of rentals that need to go up and down stairs plus you'll get your steps in no problem. It's totally worth the view though!

The Details

The bride & groom enlisted in help from their talented and creative family members to produce the floral arrangements as well as the wedding cake. They did such a great job and were such troopers through the hard work! When it came to food & service, they chose some great vendors for the job! A Taste of Elegance provided some amazing food stations while Night & Day Productions team staffed the event. PRO TIP: Always hire a captain and servers.

All in all, Wind & Sea is a dreamy Big Sur wedding venue. It's perfect for the intimate wedding that you may be dreaming of! The rolling gold hills that drop into the ocean is something that you'll never forget or regret because it will be in all of your wedding photos!
