    10/10 Recommend

    Flying Caballos completely exceeded our expectations. Having the venue for the entire weekend was a game-changer. It relieved so much stress and gave our families tons of time to connect before and after the wedding. Sarah was so professional and helped make the day come together perfectly.

    Flying Caballos Ranch's reply:

    Thank you so much Haley! It was such a pleasure hosting you both as well as your lovely friends & family! Congratulations!!!

    Gorgeous venue!

    We LOVE Flying Caballos! When booking a venue, our options were limited with such a large guest count. We were able to book a tour of FCR very quickly, and we just knew the minute we walked up to the gorgeous yellow farmhouse that we needed to have our wedding here. Sarah, the venue manager, has great communication and worked hand in hand with our wedding planner to ensure the day ran smoothly, even while planning, postponing and re-planning our wedding. Our guests were awed at the beauty of the venue! From the perfectly landscaped yard to the modern bar, every square inch of Flying Caballos is beautiful. We are SO thankful that we were able to have our special day here. Flying Caballos will forever hold a special place in our hearts.

    Flying Caballos Ranch really is a special place

    Flying Caballos Ranch was the perfect place to get married! We immediately fell in love with one of the locations for a ceremony, a grassy area overlooking the hills, beautiful! And then we also fell in love with the fact that there are 4 places on the property where you and your guests can stay. And of course the barn is so pretty! We were able to stay with our whole wedding party onsite which made the weekend that much more fun by having everyone together. The venue is also located near the airport and close to downtown so it’s easy for guests to get to. There are so many great spots on the property that allow you to host different parts of your wedding in different areas. We had the rehearsal dinner and wedding cocktail hour out back of the yellow farm house which is such a pretty spot with lights strung around. The ceremony was held on the lawn overlooking the hills. The wedding reception and dancing were held inside the barn. The bridal parties were also able to get ready onsite which was nice. It’s such a beautiful venue to get married at and many guests were telling us how much they love the venue. There are also a lot of great spots for photos! Sarah who oversees the venue and was also our month of coordinator is so great too! She knows the property so well and was super helpful with planning out the details of our day and made the actual day run so smoothly!! She had everything handled, and we and our families were all very impressed. It really is a special place and we’re so lucky we got to get married there! We love Flying Caballos!
