About C Bar Ranch

C Bar Ranch, located in Alachua, Florida, is a luxury barn wedding venue that sits amid majestic oaks on 191 acres of forest and family-owned-and-operated farmland. After your ceremony at one of five beautiful sites, you and your guests can head to the rustic-yet-elegant, air-conditioned barn to celebrate and dance the night away. Let owners Ray and Nanette help you design a unique and enjoyable wedding experience that your guests will never forget.

Facilities and Capacity

C Bar Ranch features a stately, air-conditioned, built-for-weddings facility with elegant chandeliers, wood ceilings and floors, lovely draping and reception seating for 210. The main room is equipped with two wall-mounted, 55-inch, high-definition televisions and a complete audio-visual system for your use, with a smart wireless microphone for slideshows, music and announcements. The building has an easily accessible, warming kitchen for your caterer, with ample room for food preparation and cake cutting on rolling tables. The kitchen is fully equipped with a freezer, refrigerator, two ovens, three-compartment sink, plating tables, and commercial icemaker. Choose to have your ceremony on the patio under the oaks, on the dock by the pond, in a forest-edged field, or at the barn front. Side porches feature lighting, built-in cocktail tables and ceiling fans. A patio area under large oak trees features a fire pit and is illuminated with market lights and uplighting under the trees. There are separate dressing areas for the bride’s and groom’s parties, complete with private bathrooms, speak-easy doors, mini bar, coffee bar, comfortable furniture, full-length mirrors, smart televisions, and makeup stations with salon chairs for the ladies. You can choose to open these areas out to the main room for your reception to allow your guests to enjoy these spaces, too. There are plenty of ADA-accessible restrooms available for guests and a separate, luxurious, ladies’ lounge with an electric fireplace that can be used as a quiet area for nursing mothers or guests hoping to hold quiet conversations.

Services Offered

Our most popular wedding package includes three days of private access at the ranch, plus many included services, such as planning and coordination, linens (choice of about 30 colors), bartending, DJ, catered wedding-party breakfast and much more. Couples have access to the property the day before the wedding to rehearse, relax, and decorate between 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. You even may hold your rehearsal dinner on the property. Then have all-day access on the day of the wedding as early as 7 a.m. to begin getting ready, until as late as 11 p.m. for their celebration. They can return the day after from 8 a.m. until noon to retrieve items left behind, including vehicles. Couples also get exclusive, private access to the venue and grounds for their engagement photos.

The fully enclosed barn includes tables and chairs for up to 210 people and plenty of space for dance floor, bar, DJ, band or any other amenities you'd like have. And you're welcome to bring all your favorite vendors. Ranch staff will set up for your reception in any configuration you’d like, and they are happy to advise on a floor plan that would work well for your event. They have a vast selection of decor from which you can choose, including antique whiskey barrels and wine barrels, centerpieces, lanterns, signs, shepherds hooks, easels, glassware, silk flowers and garlands, table numbers, free-standing barn doors, and much more. They also can provice yard games, such as Giant Jenga, Giant Connect Four and corn hole personalized with your last name. They want it to feel like your personal party barn for the weekend.

A representative from C Bar Ranch will be on-site during your event to monitor the cleanliness of facilities, replenish restrooms, and handle any concerns that may arise, and to help other vendors work as a team to make it your Best Day Ever.

    Fantastic venue choice

    We had our daughter's wedding here and the facility, attention to detail and assistance provided by the staff was impeccable. We couldn't be happier with our choice and highly recommend them. The vendors they helped us choose were just as great, especially our wedding planner, Joanne O. Ray was always available for anything we needed the entire weekend and had a fantastic attitude the entire weekend. Thanks again to all of you for helping make our daughter's special day so magical. The Lanzon/ Fox Family

    C Bar Ranch's reply:

    You did a fabulous job of giving her a dream wedding, and we were so honored you chose to celebrate with us. It was absolutely a pleasure, from Day 1 of the planning. What a special, joyful weekend! We loved being a part of it. Thank you so much for the very kind words!

    C Bar Ranch is one of the prettiest and accommodating venues in North Central Florida! Owners Ray and Nanette Holt, and their family, took a lot of pride in custom creating their venue to not only give their customers an amazing venue and experience. But they took their vendors needs into consideration as well when they designed the venue. Ray and Nanette are the epitome of Southern Hospitality and treat everyone like family, and always make sure that your special event is absolutely perfect. You may start as a customer, but you will leave as family.

    C Bar Ranch is a wonderful venue to host both weddings, receptions, and large scale events! Many of our clients utilize the ranch to host their receptions. C Bar Ranch exceeds our customers expectations in much the same way that our staff provides, which makes it easy to refer our clients to their facility.

    Always Eventful Wedding Planners

    If you are looking for an amazing venue for your wedding, rehearsal dinner, corporate event and beyond, C Bar Ranch is the place to be! This venue is an example of hard work, dedication, planning and lots of LOVE! The Holts are an amazing family and really took the time to think of everything a venue could possibly need. From a planner's point of view, it's a dream, and I'm sure brides or any other clients would agree. From the bridal suite and groom's room to the sound system and awesome indoor/outdoor balcony, this venue is flat out beautiful. It's an elegant twist on a barn venue with the bonus of climate control for year round events. There are gorgeous indoor and outdoor options and plenty of charm. Between the venue and its owners, you'll be in great hands from day one. Oh, I almost forgot - there's no shortage of adorable farm animals on the property! Bonus! I highly recommend C Bar Ranch for any of your upcoming events!
