    Perfect venue!

    La Lomita Ranch was the perfect venue for our wedding weekend. Karen was very accommodating and easy to work with. Our close family was able to stay on site in the 7 beautiful rooms available for the weekend. The stay included a delicious breakfast (frittata, meats, cheese, yogurt, fruit, breads) and we just loved Darlene who greeted us every morning at breakfast. The property has many different areas to hold your events. We hosted a welcome cocktail hour in the front courtyard, which is absolutely stunning. We had our rehearsal dinner at a long table in the barn, which ended up being so romantic and the perfect ambiance. Our wedding reception was held in the pavilion, which was absolutely dazzling! We were able to keep the side window doors open on the pavilion to the outdoor cocktail area so we could have fresh air and the guests can move inside to outside easily. The venue itself is an absolute dream. The detail on the buildings is incredible and the landscaping is amazing. This venue is so flexible with the different site options it is perfect for a small wedding or a large wedding. I cannot recommend this venue enough!

    The most beautiful venue, BUT

    La Lomita Ranch is an absolutely gorgeous location for your wedding, but I cannot give the venue 5 stars. I was going back and forth between 3 and 4 stars, ultimately I chose 4 stars because the venue is gorgeous and my day was beautiful; however, Karen - the director of Weddings and Events at La Lomita, made my experience less than perfect. Throughout my engagement (a little over a year) Karen was the person I was in direct contact with, and trying to work with her proved difficult. Karen was openly condescending to me, my family, and my wedding planner. She disparaged some of my vendors as "not worthy" of a La Lomita event and scrutinized all vendors she did not recognize (Including my wedding planner). Karen did several things that felt condescending. One example, (there were several) was when she tried to move my rehearsal ceremony around a yoga class that was taking place at 5 pm the day before my wedding. Almost everything else about my planning process was smooth and all my other vendors were so accommodating, it was frustrating and stressful to feel belittled as the bride by my venue's event coordinator, especially given the price of the venue. I would like to end this review by saying that the owners are very nice, the rest of the staff on the Ranch were wonderful, and La Lomita Ranch is even more beautiful in person; but I cannot disregard the treatment I received.
