If you don’t want to have your ceremony at a resort or hotel, an estate is another great option. The Wind and Sea Estate is perfect if you’re looking for a more intimate affair of 50 people or less. This oceanfront property sits on six acres surrounded by Big Sur’s breathtaking scenery. At the foot of the estate, you can also enjoy your own private beach! Multiple decks offer views from every angle of the coastline which makes for unforgettable photos.
