I never could have hoped for such a fantastic event! Rancho San Antonio is hands down the best wedding venue on the Central Coast- Exactly what we wanted and had pictured for our special day. Plenty of space for guests to roam, beautiful lighting and photo opportunities, unique décor and a great atmosphere for a lovely celebration. Parking was easy to navigate. They truly make everything easier - from planning/rentals to the day of, just a great seamless experience.
Everything was amazing. I cannot say how many times people told me the venue was so beautiful and I even heard compliments from other vendors and my guests. Everything was organized, efficient, help was always readily available no matter what! It was all perfect :) Thank you sooo soo much!
The venue played a huge part in the success of our weekend and the amount of our guests who are still talking about your venue is testament to that.
I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone looking to get married in the Santa Ynez valley.

From the incredible vibe that both naturally permeates the grounds, to the one that has been created, and nurtured on this amazing working ranch, that doubles up on the weekends as a wedding venue, we found a sanctuary to be married at. RSA had all the “right touches” – from the signs in the trees, to the archway for the ceremony to the chandeliers in the trees and barn – and the grounds which were, despite being a working ranch, flawless. Then there were the cool rental mismatched antique dishes, unique bar, relaxed but nice guest house(s) and a well vetted vendor recommendation list.
Then the intangible stuff – the staff and the magic. The folks who run RSA are amazing….down to earth, kind, compassionate, cool, genuine, real, helpful, caring – and each have a sparkle in their eye – which is something you simply can’t fake. They LOVE what they do – and they love finding the people who will appreciate it and for whom they can help make their special day stunning. As far as the magic…if you feel it, you do. If you don’t, it won’t mean anything to you if I try to describe it.
I know I’ll always tear up thinking of my bride walking down the “Once Upon a Time” pathway, to our “altar” and our sign of “Happily Ever After.” I know every time Linda and I look at the truly gorgeous and profoundly apt gift from RSA, we will be reminded of our vows and the magic we created – not just a legal contract, but a mystical bond – which was made even stronger by the connection of the grounds and staff for RSA. I am confident we’ll both always treasure the sunset photos taken on the three-tree ridge and while I know most people will tell you their wedding day was unforgettable (usually for good reasons) ours seems forever etched in our hearts, minds and souls. We owe a thanks to many great vendors, but in the largest part, to Bobbi, Jeni, Greg (and Juan) who made our weekend amazing, our big day STUNNING and our memories ever lasting.
