Rimrock is amazing and unforgettable
Rimrock Ranch was the perfect venue for our laid-back wedding last fall. The ranch is so beautiful, the desert scenery is magical, and all the little areas of the venue make it the perfect place to host an even that's fun for everyone. We had folks aged 5 months to 86 years and everyone was comfortable. I can't stress how pretty the scenery is; we are still hearing about how much our guests loved it! It feels rustic but it has all the comforts that you need. Gwen is great to work with. She's responsive, always answered our questions promptly and clearly, and all the expectations, costs, and venue information are up front and clear. Our wedding went off without a hitch and it couldn't have been more perfect. I'd recommend this venue to anyone!Sent on 03/10/2020

Get married at Rimrock Ranch!
Get married at Rimrock Ranch! It is a desert dreamscape and Gwen and Eric are amazing stewards of the property. The fact that they live onsite makes the space much more meaningful--I mean, how wonderful is it that they share their home with so many people who want to celebrate love and a lifetime of partnership. They also made planning a wedding at their space incredibly easy, providing us with a comprehensive prefered vendors list (hooray for local vendors) as well as nearby Airbnb's for guests. It felt like once we booked Rimrock Ranch and their highly-recommended wedding planner (and super awesome person) Danielle, everything else fell into place pretty easily.Sent on 09/20/2020
Moreover, they worked with us through three iterations of our wedding: (1) pre-COVID-19, (2) post-COVID-19, and (3) post-Apple Fire. To say that Gwen/Eric remained flexible and understanding is a complete understatement. When we had to adjust for COVID-19 measures, they were ready to go and clearly communicated all of the safety precautions necessary (including working to purchase compostable disposable dinnerware and livestream capabilities--no small feat given that Internet/cell service is a little funky out there). When the Apple Fire emerged, Gwen/Eric did their best to remain open to hosting our small group and kept us apprised of the ongoing developments. Unfortunately, we ended up having to cancel our wedding at Rimrock Ranch and move to having a ceremony out in Joshua Tree National Park. Please know that this was strictly due to the fire evacuation warning that was imposed on Rimrock and Pioneertown--it simply was not diligent to bring people to an area that could be forced to evacuate at a moment's notice. However, if that had not been the case, we have no doubt that our wedding would've gone forward without a hitch in a manner that was safe for all. Even after the cancelation, Gwen was trying to help and offered to share her livestream equipment with us (all this while she and Eric were packing up their belongings in case of evacuation).
Getting married out in the desert is not for the faint of heart. And if you can keep up, Gwen/Eric will be there for you. Also the lodging space is gorgeous and we have plans to book a stay in the future. :)

Rimrock Ranch is an absolute gem
Rimrock Ranch was a dream place to get married - from the ceremony backdrop, to the wide open sky, to the many different spaces and places on the site to host a dinner, cocktail hour, dance floor, welcome party - it was absolutely stunning. Gwen and Eric have done a beautiful place with Rimrock Ranch, and provide great advice and insight on weather, design, recommended vendors, and how to make the most of the experience. Thank you for helping us have the most memorable and magical wedding.Sent on 11/03/2019
