A dream within a dream! Pure magic.
Stunning, breathtaking, pure beauty - the wedding office team at Calamigos in addition to their Guest Ranch hospitality service is simply off the charts. These people are veterans who will take care of you every step of the way - they're collaborative, responsive, family friendly, and willing to do whatever it takes to ensure your special day at their venue is as beautiful as can be. We hosted 30 guests at the Birchwood Room during a pandemic (outdoors, masks on, negative tests, etc) and it was simply stunning! If you're looking for a one of a kind venue with a one of a kind staff, take a trip up the PCH and bask in the beauty of this place. We are overjoyed that they stuck with us to pull off our event safely and responsibly for all of our guests. Thank you for taking such good care of us. With love, the Clunes.Sent on 01/04/2021

This venue came together after we lost our first venue during the 2018 fire season. Calamigos survived and they were very accommodating to the weddings that lost their venue. They helped us and we were able to have the wedding of our dreams at a beautiful location. We took the first Saturday we could and grabbed the Oak Room location which gave us a beautiful waterfall backdrop. It couldn't have been more perfect, I highly recommend Calamigos Ranch for any wedding or event.Sent on 12/03/2019

I am a wedding planner and love working at Calamigos. Their hospitality is completely on par with orchestrating a beautiful wedding. They take special care of the bride and groom as well as each guest. I cannot say what a breathe of fresh air it is to work at a property I know my clients will be well taken care of.Sent on 09/13/2019
