Whimsical Garden Dream
McGraths was a dream come true.
This is one of the more affordable venues in the area with the most spectacular garden. The team went out of their way to accommodate all of our COVID changes and helped to make our day a dream come true. We were excited to have a whimsical Garden reception here, but due to covid had to move our ceremony here instead. It ended up just perfect! Our first look in the garden made for amazing photos. The lights shining through the trees and the beautiful nature sounds were spectacular. The sparkler walk was so magical on their front drive.
We couldn't have asked for a better venue! Thank you McGrath and team! 💜Sent on 10/21/2020

Beautiful venue at an amazing price point!
The property at McGrath Ranch and Gardens is stunning offering a beautifully landscaped yard with lots of shade, various areas for setting up your event and a guest house that is offered prior to the event to store items which also functions as a nice space for the bride and bridal party to utilize prior to the wedding. The venue also currently offers a lot of perks such as the ability to bring in your own alcohol, café string lighting strung throughout the venue, additional props that can be rented at a very reasonable price point. Although the venue has a recommended vendor you are welcome to bring in your own vendors as well. On a side note their recommended vendor DJ’s California Catering is AMAZING and wonderful to work with, providing pretty much everything you need catering/ tables/linens/bartenders etc.Sent on 04/16/2020
We had been planning a wedding at this venue for summer 2020 and the event manager Nick has been so easy to work with and helpful throughout the planning process. We ultimately decided to postpone our summer wedding due to COVID-19. It was a very difficult decision and Nick and McGrath Ranch and Gardens were so understanding and kind during this very stressful time offering us multiple options if we decide to move forward or cancel. I feel so very fortunate to have worked with such a great venue and cannot say enough good things about this venue. If you are looking for a beautiful venue with kind people and plenty of additional perks I highly recommend McGrath Ranch and Gardens!
