Guest Accommodations

Morro Bay and Cayucos

The wedding is in Cayucos, a sleepy seaside town with an easy pace. Just south of our venue is the town of Morro Bay; while still a little sleepy, it has a bit more to do and access to great walking beaches. If you choose to stay in either of these towns, you will be within 15 minutes of the venue and quite happy we're sure :)

Travel and Transportation

Recommended airports

SFO, LAX, or SJC are probably the most affordable airports to fly into, but are a 3-4 hour drive to the central coast. However, we recommend you make the most of your trip to the golden state; choose to fly into one of those airports and enjoy the drive along the Pacific Coast Highway or visit Yosemite en route to the wedding!

To fly in closer to the wedding, look into San Luis Obispo or Santa Barbara airports.

Central Coast Attractions

Hearst Castle
750 Hearst Castle Rd, San Simeon, CA 93452, USA

Hearst Castle’s history begins in 1865, when George Hearst purchased 40,000 acres of ranchland. After his mother’s death in 1919, William Randolph Hearst inherited thousands of acres around San Simeon, and over time, he purchased more. The spread eventually encompassed about 250,000 acres. With architect, Julia Morgan, Hearst conceived a retreat he called La Cuesta Encantada—Spanish for “Enchanted Hill.” By 1947, when Hearst had to leave the remote location because of his fragile health, the estate was still unfinished even though it comprised 165 rooms and 123 acres of gardens, terraces, pools and walkways—all built to Hearst’s specifications and showcasing a legendary art collection.

Book tickets in advance.

Piedras Blancas
Piedras Blancas, California 93452, USA

The northern elephant seal, Mirounga angustirostris, is an extraordinary marine mammal. It spends eight to ten months a year in the open ocean, diving 1000 to 5800 feet deep for periods of fifteen minutes to two hours, and migrating thousands of miles, twice a year, to its land-based rookery for birthing, breeding, molting, and rest. Piedras Blancas is a great place to view these remarkable creatures during their time onshore.

The Piedras Blancas elephant seal rookery spreads over 6 miles of shoreline around Point Piedras Blancas on the central coast of California. The viewing areas are located 90 miles south of Monterey, 5 miles north of Hearst Castle State Historical Monument in San Simeon, 1.5 miles south of Point Piedras Blancas. The viewing areas are open every day of the year, are wheelchair accessible, and free. No reservations required.
