Coastal Locations & Information

Use Permits

Cities along the central coast require use permits for events held on city/public property such as parks, and beaches, etc. It is up to each couple to obtain the city-specific or location permits. Couples are responsible for having those permits and/or taking responsibility for any fines that may arise for unpermitted gatherings.

Pacific Grove Locations

Gazebo Near Asilomar

Here's a video from Youtube showing  the path /walk to the Gazebo. Located along the Pacific Grove Post it's picturesque and romantic.

This is  a 20 acre open space preserve and community park. The area is frequented by dog walkers, and families. Often used for senior portraits, family and wedding portraits.


Lover's Point Park

A popular location for families, tourists and a hot spot during the summer. The Park is aptly named and holds large weddings as well as the small intimate gathering or couple eloping and looking for a wide and clear view of the Monterey Bay.


Berwick Park

An easily accessible park along the Recreation Trail and used for small ceremonies. The hidden gem is the path behind the park along the coastal cliffs which serves as a great place for an elopement ceremony.


Esplanade Park

A 1.2 Acre park running along the coast and separating the neighborhoods from Oceanview Blvd. The natural setting of trees with the jewel colored Monterey Bay in the background is the best of both coast and cypress settings


Jewell Park Gazebo

A small park with a perfect and small town feel Gazebo for a ceremony for two or the intimate group. This location is surrounded by the PG Museum and the historically important Pacific Grove Library, housed in one of the few Carnegie buildings with some of the original Mission Style elements still in place. 

The Park boasts both the coast and the downtown area (with its plethora of dining choices) within walking distance and a small area of grass to gather and celebrate.
