Palm Desert Wedding Venues at the Monterey Country Club

Where the desert ends and the rich green lawns begin, Monterey Country Club provides historic Spanish Colonial-styling that is both charming and inviting and creates the perfect Palm Desert wedding venue. This remarkable location offers two stunning outdoor settings, each one seating up to 210 guests. Situated beside a palm-fringed lake, these settings offer ideal locations for you to say “I do” at a beautiful outdoor venue. Each backdrop is impeccably balanced for photo opportunities and, best yet, the pricing is sure to please.

After exchanging vows, you and your guests will enter the plush drawing room with a cathedral wood-beam ceiling, candelabra–style chandelier, and cut-stone fireplace. We capture the unique feel and vibrance of Palm Desert throughout the venue and we’re sure you and your guests will find this as well. When you move to the Main Dining Room, you’ll be greeted by the natural light spilling through tall, arched windows and views of the majestic San Jacinto Mountains. With the adjacent Sunrise Room opened up via the double doors, you can host a gala for up to 250 of your closest friends and family.

Monterey Country Club has become one of the Palm Desert region’s most in-demand event venues for many reasons but our unique ability to offer stunning indoor/outdoor weddings with plenty of opportunity to customize to your liking is not least among them. We encourage you to contact our event staff to plan your wedding day and we look forward to showing you the grounds.
