Reinstein Ranch hosted my wedding weekend, and the first thing that comes to mind is how peaceful, breath-taking and customizable the space is. Every space of the ranch is absolutely gorgeous. There are so many layout options for your ceremony and reception, plus having so many different spaces for our wedding party to stay in was the perfect way to recreate my surprise engagement in Italy with friends.
Before the ceremony, I managed to sneak away with Christianna into the meditation room for a little session, and it was *magical*. It's so easy to get caught up in the craziness of your wedding that there can be a tendency to rush through every moment. Christianna has such a gift being able to center people and gently remind you of the importance of your wedding. The short time I spent tucked away meditating with her was so incredibly helpful. PLEASE start a meditation podcast! :)Sent on 09/02/2020
California Ranch Events's reply:Thank you for the kind words, your appreciation means everything!! And I am SO glad the meditation was helpful. Maybe I will start a podcast! ;)

Best weekend ever!
My husband and I got married at the ranch in August 2019 and it was the best decision we made to celebrate our wedding and bring all of our friends and family together there. When we first got engaged I was so worried that we were going to fall victim to the cookie-cutter, corporate wedding industry and that my wedding would feel like a blur. Thank goodness we found the ranch! From our first visit, Christianna and Albie immediately made us feel welcome and encouraged us to make our wedding celebration as personal as possible, ensuring us that at the ranch we would have freedom to create a unique celebration that was a reflection of our relationship. The warm welcome and introduction were great, but of course I was also blown away by the gorgeous setting, rustic barn, and charming grounds that the ranch had to offer.Sent on 01/07/2020
We opted for the 3 night package which meant we rented the ranch from Friday evening all the way until Monday morning (with planning support from Kirin at TLC events - she's amazing!). This was the perfect option for us because we wanted to host multiple events for our all of our guests - including a pizza party rehearsal dinner on Friday night, wedding + reception on Saturday, and bagel brunch on Sunday. Throughout the entire planning process, Christianna and Kirin were accommodating, helpful, and creative - all to help us put together a weekend that was truly magical and surpassed all of our expectations. From a quiet meditation at the beginning of the weekend, to yoga on Saturday morning, the excitement of our ceremony + reception, and some quiet time with family on Sunday afternoon, we were able to truly be present and never felt rushed. When I look back on the weekend now I'm so grateful that we found the ranch and were able to provide a space for our friends and family to gather across multiple days to help us enter this exciting new chapter in our lives.

What a GEM!! Reinstein Ranch is an amazing venue for an array of events, weddings, showers, corporate events, retreats and more. Not only is it a beautiful space, affordable, flexible in you being able to bring in your own vendors, comes with a wedding planner & coordinator, but the staff there are truly incredible as well. You are welcomed into their home and treated like family by a team who are as close to as excited for your special event as you and your family are. Reinstein Ranch is one of few venues that encourage an intimate, personal and unique retreat style feel; a place where the togetherness and celebration are on the forefront of your event.Sent on 01/17/2019
