    Beautiful and Perfect Venue

    Teresa was so kind and easy to work with. The venue was even more gorgeous and perfect than I could have imagined! My husband and I LOVED it and so many of our guests commented on how beautiful it was. It was perfect!! It is timeless and can accommodate most any style of wedding (I wanted to be in a barn/outdoors, but still feel elegant). I would choose the venue all over again and would recommend to anyone!

    The Best Venue!

    As soon as I found Rafter J Ranch, I didn't look any further! Teresa and her husband are super sweet, down to Earth, sincere and will work with you to achieve your vision! My wedding on November 9th of 2019 was so beautiful from the bridal suites, to the bridge for pictures to the twinkling lights (my favorite part)! I got so many compliments from my guests at how much they loved the venue and what a great time they had. This stems from having an awesome venue owner! Teresa has tons of decor to choose from and comes with tables and chairs! There is so much room and so many options as to how you can have the reception and ceremony set up! They work so so hard to provide amazing service and the best night of your life. I am so thankful to have found Rafter J Ranch and had the most amazing wedding day thanks to them! The best aprt was it was the most affordable venue I found! Not to mention, the history behind this piece of property is incredible! Ask about it and get a little educated :)
