Beautiful, rustic-chic setting, DELICIOUS food, fabulous staff
We had the most wonderful wedding we could have possibly imagined at Rancho Nicasio and continue to receive compliments from our guests, many of whom have said it was the 'absolute best' wedding they'd ever been to (thanks in large part, no doubt, to our having chosen Rancho Nicasio as our venue).Sent on 10/27/2019
The beautiful, rustic-chic setting with potential for indoor/outdoor festivities, the DELICIOUS food and the fabulous staff are some of the reasons Rancho Nicasio was the perfect venue for us.
Max, the owner, and Julii, the onsite wedding coordinator, were instrumental in executing such a wonderful experience for us and for our guests. They were also responsible for the production of much of the food (I really can't emphasize deliciousness of the food enough -- especially in such large quantities. People RAVED about it)! Julii is an expert (and so fun!) and helped us craft our vision. She accommodated and encouraged us to add special touches to make our wedding as 'us' as we hoped it could be. She and her staff went above and beyond to efficiently execute a last-minute switch-up due to unforeseen weather, which we really appreciated. Julii worked directly with our vendors to ensure everything ran seamlessly.
We recently received our photographs from the wedding and were reminded again of how lucky we were to have been able to have Rancho Nicasio as our venue. The beautiful outdoor ceremony among the trees, the picturesque cocktail hour (complete with fabulous oyster bar!) and the cool inside bar and fabulous dance floor are some the visual highlights. We will cherish these memories for the rest of our lives.

Most beautiful, laid-back, awesome venue ever!
Rancho Nicasio was an absolute dream venue for our wedding! The aesthetic creates an incredible atmosphere of "California rustic" and the team was so awesome, flexible, accommodating, no-nonsense, and on top of things. There is no bureaucracy or jumping through hoops or senseless rules at Rancho Nicasio -- everyone is on the same team and works hard to pull off a seamless event. Staff is friendly, they do all the set-up and clean-up, and the food is so fresh and so good!! The price is extremely reasonable for a California wedding, and we had 250+ guests pulled off without a hitch!

Relaxed and Rustic
Julii was amazing! I highly recommend Rancho Nicasio for an outdoor wedding. They take care of the linens/chairs, food, bar, setup and break down. They even have a ton of decorations we could use so we didn't need to buy all new things. The food was delicious and our guests had a blast!Sent on 10/21/2018
