Hey There,
Looking for a top notch Monterey Wedding Videographer or cinematographer? Perhaps you’re also looking for some aerial cinematography? Yep. We’ve got that too!
Here at KindleWood Films, we are one of the premiere wedding videographers in the Monterey Bay Area and would love to share a few tips with you about a few of the venues you may be considering. We pride ourselves on going the extra mile for our couples so we thought we’d write down some of our thoughts about a few of our favorite venues in Monterey.

Some of our favorite high end wedding venues from Monterey for wedding videography are listed below:


Pebble Beach

When we first shot at Pebble beach, my jaw was left open for most of the shoot. From the ceremony area to the luxurious reception areas, this venue is definitely a once in a lifetime experience. Nestled along the coast, next to one of the worlds most famous golf courses, we had only one opportunity but to walk away with gorgeous footage. Once again, we chose to complement our cinematic films by using drone cinematography to give the film that extra sense of grandeur. The video below also features Carmel Valley Ranch which is yet again another pristine venue in the Monterey Bay Area. Click here to visit the Pebble Beach website or here for the Carmel Valley Ranch Website.


Nicklaus Club – Formerly (Pasadera) Monterey

This high end golf course venue is awesome. The venue was recently taken over by new owners and with that came a new name. With a beautiful well lit bridal suite and a spacious ceremony and reception area this venue is sure to fit most couples needs. A bit further inland, this venue is sheltered from the winds a bit although it can still get a bit chilly in the evenings. We find that being cinematic videographers at this venue gives us plenty of opportunities to get incredible footage. For example, we try to go above and beyond by using aerial(drone) videography to show what surrounds the venue and makes it unique. Be sure to let us know if you have any more detailed questions about this venue. Click here for the venue website.


The Perry House

This intimate venue seats 130 and has some incredible views of the Bay. According to the Events By Classic website, they believe that “The Perry House has a charm and gentility that comes from purposefully and expertly mixing the old with the new . . . then add to that gorgeous views and superbly created cuisine presented with 5-star service, and the distinctive mix is complete.” There is plenty of parking nearby and the venue is in a very accessible area. We love this venue because it is incredibly intimate and really does provide some incredible views of the surrounding areas. Check out more on their website here.

Navy Gateway Monterey

This was by far the biggest occupancy venue that we have filmed at. This wedding was maxed out at 500 guests, and what a party it was! This Monterey wedding video from a few seasons ago shows how a large wedding can be a lot of fun given the right venue. They used a stage to slightly elevate the main wedding party and also had a stage for their band. Although it was indoors, because the ceiling was so high, it did not feel as cramped as one would think. Definitely check out their Yelp here.


Intercontinental: The Clement Monterey

If you are looking for a beach wedding but finding the permitting to be too tricky, you might consider the InterContinental The Clement Monterey. This venue is about as close as you can get to the beach without having a technical “beach” wedding. Saddled right next to Cannery Row this is the perfect “destination” wedding for your guests as there is so much to do right next to the venue. This venue seats up to 220 guests and has not only Panoramic Coastline and Ocean views, but you can also see the Mountains!


Of course there are many more venues in the Monterey Bay area and this page will be continually updated as time continues!
