About Bar SZ Ranch

We can sleep up to 50 guests in beds and offer a three night exclusive rental for each wedding, additional guests are welcome to camp.

Throughout the weekend you may feed and groom the animals, collect chicken eggs, go horseback riding, learn to rope, practice archery, take a hayride, go skeet and target shooting, explore the creek, hike the vista, walk a pig, snuggle a chicken, play games, BBQ over oak, sit around the campfire, roast s’mores, soak in the stars, and more.

There are many unique ceremony sites to choose from such as the barn, riding arena, oak knoll, and eucalyptus grove. We can host a very large group of over 200 guests as well as small intimate parties of any size. Camping and RVs are allowed for overflow, and there is ample room for parking.

You and your guests are allowed to party until the cows come home. Although the ‘late night’ party must be scheduled in the barn, the common area of the ranch doesn’t shut down until 2am. Our wedding weekends start on Thursday at 3pm and go until Sunday at 11am.

One thing to note about our venue is that we strictly provide location, housing, and ranch activities. All other wedding details are left up to you, whether you want to bring in your own supplies or have them ordered and delivered. We have a list of local vendors to help you navigate a new area.

Our exclusive wedding weekend includes full use of the property, early arrival, housing for 50 guests, farm tables and benches for up to 150, the first 150 guests onsite, tent and RV camping, campground showers, the cleaning fee, and nightly campfires.

    Ranch-tastic!

    Bar SZ Ranch is absolutely gorgeous! My husband and I had our wedding here on June 9, 2018, and honestly I could not have imagined having it anywhere else. From first contact with Rebekah, I knew that this would end up being the place that we selected to have our wedding. Sure enough, when we went to visit we fell in love with the place. It is just so serene out there and we can't wait to go back. Rebekah, who was the point of contact for all wedding related details, is great at responding to e-mails and lays it all out there for you, which is great because it is so straightforward and everything is on the table. Then, there is Tim and Michelle and their kids who were just THE best, they were so helpful with the venue visits and during the wedding weekend we were on the ranch. They go way beyond expectations and are just so accommodating it really makes you feel welcome. We only spent a weekend with them, but I was so glad to have them be able to partake in some of our wedding festivities because again AMAZING people. There are so many things that you can do on the ranch there is never a dull moment (ALL THE ANIMALS). Also, there are so many different ways to customize parts of the ranch to make your dream wedding come true, Tim seems to always be open to any ideas you might have and will help as much as he can (within reason of course). I always hear that weddings are stressful, but I can tell you that mine had zero stress. Book your wedding here and you're guaranteed to have a good time. There's so much more I can write about this amazing place and the amazing people that run it, but I feel like I've given you enough to at least reach out and experience the ranch for itself and the people that run it. At the very least make a trip out there to check it out.

    I think it's safe to say this is the single best wedding venue in California. Consider the reasons:
    - It's gorgeous. It's just you and nature, with 660 acres of golden hills, which make for an epic backdrop during your wedding. The structures on the ranch add to the rustic feel. And the Art House makes for beautiful photos, too. And then there is that old oak tree on the hill that has overseen so many couples get married, including us. It is magical.
    - It's remote. That means you can party all night and no one will care. But it's not that hard to get to: It's just 2.5 hours south of San Francisco. The closest town is 40 minutes north. Your cellphone won't get service, which is perfect.
    - The Borland family and ranch staff work so hard to make your wedding dream come to reality -- while just being the nicest, warmest people in the process. We can't thank you all enough for allowing us to celebrate our special day on your magnificent property. And thank you all so much for being so welcoming and warm. They are truly wonderful people!
    - It's good value. Renting the ranch for your wedding typically means you get the entire property for the whole weekend, including beds for up to 35 people. Then there's ample space for other guests to camp. While you do have to rent bathrooms, etc., for campers, you can recoup some costs by charging guests small housing fees. And otherwise there is plenty of infrastructure there.
    - Most importantly, you have freedom. We ultimately chose the ranch because they allowed us to create the wedding we wanted: a party in the middle of a field that lasted until 5 a.m. So many other venues we considered had countless rules about where we could go, what vendors we had to use, when we could be there, etc. Bar SZ Ranch has very little of that. The ranch is your canvas from when you arrive on Friday to when you leave on Sunday, enabling you to create your very own wedding weekend. We highly recommend this venue.
