I've known the owners of Rafter J Ranch for years. The friendliness and professionalism that you get from those two alone you cannot get anywhere else. They let me come to the barn numerous times before the event, their property is beautiful, and to top it off the barn is immaculate! I'm so happy I chose Rafter J Ranch to celebrate our special day.
