About Rancho Soquel

Conveniently located in the middle of Santa Cruz county in Soquel Village, this beautiful private estate has the feel of being out in the country, yet there’s a Spanish Hacienda-type feeling of old historic California in the buildings. Soquel Creek runs through the property and several wooden footbridges connect the two parcels. A historic water tower and beautiful old barn serve as the artist-owner’s studio. Path lighting and grape arbors lead the way through the beautifully landscaped gardens. The drone video that is below will give you a great idea of the layout of the property. Many amenities are included in the site fee including a dance floor and bistro lighting throughout the property. Important to note that we only do one wedding per weekend allowing full flexiblity in scheduling rehearsal.

    We had the most wonderful wedding at Rancho Soquel last weekend. Denise at Wedding Connections was our wedding planner provided with the Rancho Soquel property. She was absolutely fantastic ALL 7 mo's we worked together in planning our event. And the owners of Rancho Soquel were fabulous as well. They have provided a permanent dance floor, seating benches around the property, some tables, lighting around the yard and dance floor.

    One half of the property has a rustic barn with views of Soquel's hills. There's a large lawn area where we hosted our 180 guests for the ceremony and dinner. You walk across a bridge and the main side of the property is a large garden with paths throughout, where we had the cocktail party and dancing after dinner. It includes ample parking, beautifully manicured gardens, a large bridal suite, bathrooms, a bocce ball court and a cement dance floor with gazebo!!!! WE can't have imagined a more perfect venue for a more perfect day!

    Absolutely loved Rancho Soquel! The venue is absolutely spectacular, from the bridal cottage, to the area for the groomsmen, to the paved dance floor with DJ pavilion & bistro lighting, to the meadow for the ceremony and dinner. Wedding Connection helped every aspect day-of flow smoothly so that we didn't need to worry about any vendor coordination. Guests got to explore and mingle across every (outdoor) part of the property, and with the gorgeous landscaping, there's really no area of Rancho Soquel that isn't breathtaking. Our wedding was truly a dream come true!
