My husband and I were married here October 2016 and since the wedding everyone has said it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever been to - their words, not mine =). We had a small unassuming 110 guests and they truly brought the vision for our wedding to life! This was the only venue we seriously considered and we booked the venue in July 2015 for an October 2016 wedding. We hired the on-site Ranch Coordinator who happens to be Sally's daughter-in-law Becky McCormick and she left no detail unplanned throughout our wedding planning process. There are so many options for you to utilize to customize your wedding. The property has so many rustic nooks and crannies for the most amazing photos and visual delights for your guests to enjoy. With such a small guest count, we had our hearts set on a food station format to encourage mingling and noshing as opposed to a buffet or sit-down meal. Though they never had a request for this format before, they were delighted to work with us and did an excellent job planning the layout for the optimal reception experience. All in all, I placed my trust in the venue and their team and everyone, including my husband and I were blown away by the quality, attention to detail and the personal touches to make our big day special. Thank you McCormick! Cannot recommend you enough!Sent on 01/18/2017

McCormick Home Ranch is a hidden gem. We had our wedding there in September and our guests are still talking about how much they loved the venue! It's full of natural beauty with an intimate feel. We had 150 guests with plenty of room for more. Sally is great to work with and was very responsive to any questions along the way of planning.Sent on 12/09/2016

We had our wedding here in May of 2016 and absolutely love this venue. Sally the owner is very kind, friendly and responds to emails and phone calls in a timely manner. The home and surrounding areas (such as the garden, back patio, front lawn and barn) are all gorgeous and well maintained. The venue has a large changing room for the bride and her bridesmaids and the groom and groomsmen, which was great for storing the bridal parties items the day of the wedding. There are three distinct areas for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception which was a nice feature. You can bring in your own alcohol as long as a licensed bar tender serves it and you can choose your own catering company. It is very hard to find a venue that allows you to do both of those things and in the end this will help you save a ton of money. The venue had a very reasonable site fee compared to other venues in the area. This place is a hidden gem and all of our guests were in awe of the beauty of the venue and they loved it. The venue is all outdoors and the restrooms are the "fancy portable toilets" that do flush and have sinks in them. I would highly reccomend this venue to any future bride or groom.Sent on 06/28/2016
