About Us

The historic Santa Margarita Ranch is a unique, memorable wedding and reception site located just minutes from beautiful San Luis Obispo.

The ranch itself is nearly 15,000 acres and home to a sustainable vineyard and cattle ranching operation.

The site offers outdoor seating for up to 600 guests in a lush garden accentuated by a majestic oak tree, an 18th century wishing well, 30 year old olive trees and abundant roses. The iconic barn encloses mission-era stone walls and seats up to 280 guests. Treat your guests to a ride on an authentic Disney narrow-gauge steam engine on a 20-minute loop around the property. The venue also offers a private bridal cottage in a building which once housed a Wells Fargo along the El Camino Real stage coach trail (be sure to check out the original safe on the porch!).

The venue fee includes use of tables and chairs for 280 people, security and parking staff and an on-site venue representative.

Such a beautiful place, it speaks for itself. Our guests enjoyed the train ride with the history of this gorgeous place during the cocktail hour, such a fun and unique place! Destini was so easy to work with and willing to do as much as possible to accommodate us! If your looking for something unique at the central coast, this is your place!

Santa Margarita Ranch! One of our favorite venues in the state of California, a true GEM....and we work all over the state on a regular basis. I feel fortunate to have worked at this venue for so many years, since they began doing weddings. The improvements made in the property over the years have not only been beautiful, but help events to run smooth. This truly is a unique venue, you should visit in person! Destini and Allison (on site coordinators) are a joy to work with! Allyson Magda Photography 805.459.2704
