Wedding Venue in Northern California
The Chaminade Resort & Spa offers one of the most complete wedding experience you can ever expect. It will make your wedding a happy weekend full of bonding experiences and unique activities that is sure to pack your memories with laughter, funny photos and lots of new discoveries about the personalities of everyone in your guest list that can only be inspired by anything from exotic to easy activities.
Chaminade Resort & Spa offers the serenity of the redwood covered mountains that cascades down to the sparkling Pacific ocean. This, in turn, offers the dizzying wild fun only water and mountains can bring with the place’s beautiful beaches, fresh mountain air, proud and tall trees, and different kinds of terrain. Their spa, aside from their bewitching massages, sits high on a bluff overlooking the Santa Cruz mountains with views down to the ocean from the resort deck.
So whatever the mood you want to dominate in your wedding the Chaminade Resort & Spa will surely be able to offer it to you.
You have two options. Choose one or both, all up to you.
The Linwood's Bar & Grill partners with local farmers that make their menu dynamic as it depends on locally sourced products based on what’s fresh on the market. If you are looking to have a light meal or serve cocktails at your wedding instead of a full dinner, you can tap them.
The Sunset Restaurant is known for its vast assortment of fresh, sumptuous buffet items. The food is so good it is almost sinful. The brides shouldn’t worry though. The dieting is over and you can now fully enjoy their food.
The Ceremony and The Reception
If you feel like taking your wedding outside, you can go for the Courtyard Terrace or Sunset Patio. Both offer the breathtaking view of the Monterey Bay and rolling hills. Exchange vows at sunset and watch your dress dance against the clashing orange sky and green mountains. From afar, the white chairs serve as accents against the open sky. There is nothing more romantic than that.
You can take your reception in their Seascape Room or Santa Cruz Ballroom or Sunset Room. The sunset room’s doors can open so wide that it gives an illusion of an open space. Sta. Cruz offers the most elegant setting though, with bronze chairs and big windows, it gives you a sheltered celebration.
There are countless activities you can do in Chaminade. They have promoted green living for the longest time and even converted their spa to a Green Spa Experience. The Green Spa Experience is more than just massages. It is all about making the connection between personal and planetary wellness by situating their spa atop the mountains that allows you to commune with nature and using natural skin & body care products.
They have a fitness center, heated outdoor swimming pool, two outdoor jacuzzi, four lighted tennis courts, volleyball, badminton & croquet courts to stretch out your muscles. You can take advantage of what nature has to offer by doing scenic hiking trails, camping, surfing, sailing, and kayaking. The Santa Cruz Mountains is also a stone’s throw away and about 20 more wineries within a 10-mile radius.
Their service is holistic and creates a simple but one of a kind experience of receiving the highest kind of service without losing ground of the fact that you are being given the chance to enjoy the might beauty of nature.
