Off Path Big Sur Weddings

The Ultimate Big Sur Experience

High above the marine layer and looking out over the entire coast, there's not any direction you can look without feeling awestruck. Whether you want to hike, hangout on the beach, or explore nearby Carmel and Monterey, Big Sur will keep you busy and provide the most beautiful backdrop for a wedding everyone will be talking about.

Big Sur Coast

Big Sur


Built into the backside of a central mountain just minutes from the coast, you'll have the world's best views and still be close enough for all the local activities and adventures Big Sur is known for.

Walk just a few yards from the reception area to reach the peak of the mountain where you can sit, relax, and enjoy a sunset next to the warmth of a giant outdoor bonfire.


Relax, Celebrate, Explore


Unbeatable Views

Set back into the mountains and above the coastline, Off Path Big Sur feels like you're sitting on top of the world. With 360 views, amazing scenery, and breathtaking sunsets, it's hard to believe a place like this actually exists.


Chef Cooked Meals

Start each morning with an amazing breakfast as the sun rises over the mountains. Finish each night with a cold drink as you watch the sun dip into the Pacific. Specializing in California classics and locally sourced food, we can customize the menu around your tastes the entire week.
