A Secret Garden - Most Memorable Venue

When it comes to McCormick Home Ranch, I am speechless. The natural beauty, the spacious different areas that make up the property, and the "father-of-the-bride"-esque house make for such a unique and memorable venue. My now husband and I just hosted a 180-person wedding here on May 21st, 2022 and we could not have asked for a more magical venue to get married at. Our guests, even days later, cannot stop raving about it. Their instagrams were filled with phrases that imply the beauty of this venue and they are not lying. Sally is amazing to work with, and Becky, who handles all rentals, is the same. Every time we stepped onto that property pre-wedding we were always in awe. It was somehow even more beautiful on wedding weekend. The natural beauty of the venue allowed us to save on florals and decor. The jacaranda trees were in bloom, the ease of flowing from ceremony to cocktail hour to reception was so easy, the sheep were a hit among the guests, and it's just so unexpected! When you're driving, you do not expect to be turning into a secret oasis garden! I wish I could post 1000 photos of this venue but they just don't do justice. If you're looking for a place that allows BYOB, bring your own food, and just an amazing experience for you and your guests, look no further than McCormick Home Ranch!

Gorgeous venue

Sally and Becky were so welcoming and the ranch is absolutely gorgeous. We had our wedding 5/15/22 and have gotten so many compliments on the venue. Sally let us view the ranch multiple times for planning purposes and was very prompt when communicating.

Beautiful Ranch Wedding

McCormick was the first venue my husband and I looked at for our wedding and we knew immediately that it was the right spot. It’s beautiful. And then to see it all come together on the day of our wedding... we could not have been happier. Sally and Becky Mccormick was so pleasant and easy to work with. Sally is so flexible about bringing in vendors and has collected such a great list of recommended vendors that she provides. Becky helped us with all decor and rentals and they were all there ready to go the day of.
