About California Ranch Events

California Ranch Events is a stunning outdoor venue welcoming weddings in Livermore, California. The ranch is family-run, and its owners hold community near and dear to their hearts. They offer the property to couples to use as their own, tailoring the space suit the needs of their big day. Located within driving distance of San Francisco and San Jose, the venue is surrounded by breathtaking natural beauty. Indeed, guests will enjoy the scenic journey to the ranch before they even enter its picturesque grounds. Situated on Reinstein Ranch, the land’s history dates back to Muwekma Ohlone people in pre-colonial times. It is now cared for by couple Christianna & Albe, yogis and meditators who love the land for its calm, spiritual energy.

Facilities and Capacity

The venue specializes in hosting conscious weddings, and its owners encourage couples to make their wedding into an organic expression of themselves. Those celebrating their big day can exchange vows with Mother Nature as their witness. A stunning backdrop of sunkissed, rolling hills can be the backdrop to their outdoor ceremony. Receptions are welcomed in the property’s barn which is charmingly rustic space for a boho-chic wedding. Its interior can be decorated with string lighting to illuminate the worn grain of its wooden timber frame. As dusk falls, guests can venture outside and relax in the firepit area for intimate into the night. There are multiple spaces available for the party’s use when getting ready, and a range of stylish accommodation options on-site for up to 30 people.

Services Offered

The owners of California Ranch Events cultivate a calming environment throughout the property, allowing couples to relax and enjoy their big day without stress. They can help take the work out of planning events by organizing a DJ, a hair and makeup stylist, an officiant, and more. Their in-house planning team also includes a wedding planner, a florist, yoga instructors, and even artisans who can create custom pieces such as altars. The management also welcomes outside vendors, allowing couples to make use of the space as they wish.

    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. 
    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.

    Wedding Planner

    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.
