Best Decision We Made

Gabriel was absolutely fantastic to work with. He truly cares about making sure your day is perfect and helps out anyway he can. He is extremely professional and was great with communication. The ranch is breath taking and so many of our guests commented on how beautiful it was and how great Gabriel is. We could not have asked for a more perfect venue or venue owner to work with. We took Gabriel’s recommendations for a wedding coordinator and bartenders and those were also some of the best vendors to work with. I can honestly say my day went perfectly and a lot of it was due to how great and hands on Gabriel is.

Best Venue Ever!

We had our wedding 5/20/23 and let me tell you, we had so many compliments on the venue! Not only was Gabe extremely helpful throughout the whole process, he really works hard to make all your dreams come true. The venue is perfectly situated, close to downtown but tucked between the hills so you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere. The sunset pictures are located at the very top of the highest hill top with an incredible view, straight out of a fairytale.
If you are looking for a rustic wedding, look no further. We cannot recommend this venue and Gabe enough.

Beautiful Venue!

We are so happy we went with La Cuesta Ranch for our venue! Gabriel is so accommodating and went above and beyond to make our wedding special. He made our lives so much easier by providing tables, chairs, furniture, lawn games, lighting options, decor and more! This venue comes with so much that you really get your money's worth. We instantly fell in love with the charm of the ranch and the ceremony site. At night, when the lights above the reception area light up, it's truly magical. The best part was sunset photos! Gabriel took us & our photographers up the hills for sunset. It was my favorite part of our wedding. Our guests loved our venue and Gabriel! We couldn't have been happier with our decision.
