The Most Perfect Wedding Venue!

Having our wedding at Lucky 8 Ranch was nothing short of magical. We lucked out with the best weather and our guests are still talking about how beautiful it was. The views from the ceremony site are unreal! Keith and Nick were so awesome to work with and they made sure everything was absolutely perfect. It honestly exceeded every expectation we had for the day. Lucky 8 is a truly special venue and we can't recommend them enough.

Best Wedding we could've ever wished for!

We just had our wedding up at the Lucky 8 Ranch this summer, and my goodness, Nick, Keith, and the entire Lucky 8 staff went above and beyond to make sure we had the best day ever. From their responsiveness throughout the entire planning process, to their flexibility with changes, and all of their efforts to ensure our needs were met were absolutely spectacular. We could not recommend enough for anyone who is looking for a unique and absolutely gorgeous ranch style wedding - do it here! They truly made it not just a typical wedding for us, but an entire experience from start to finish for ourselves as well as friends and family. We can't thank them enough and will absolutely be back in the future for some more adventures!
