River Ridge Ranch is a unique combination of wedding benue, nature preserve and recreation ranch in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. The environmentally-conscious 722-acre ranch includes the Tule River and borders the 323,000 acre Giant Sequoia National Monument. River Ridge Ranch is a fully-protected ecological reserve. We are about three hours from L.A. and less than five hours from San Francisco.

I can't say enough about Gary and David at River Ridge!!! We started our planning our ceremony and reception with Gary. His advice, honesty, and sincerity was so refreshing (he was our officiant as well). We held our ceremony and reception on the ranch. Absolutely beautiful; we really didn't even decorate, since the scenery was enough for us.Sent on 07/23/2014
David took over the reigns before the big day. He was WONDERFUL!! He took on our event as if it was personal; he made certain that I was happy and that our day was exactly as we envisioned. He went above and beyond.
Communication was a breeze with David and Gary, our vendors (food/photography/DJ) all had wonderful things to say about the ranch. Speaking of photography; gorgeous photos!! This place is where all should go for family photos; opportunities everywhere.
Our guests ( ages 12+) all had wonderful things to say about the ranch as well. Just a great, great place.
I would ask that any and all to go visit and decide for yourself!!

This place is a gem! From first to last, Gary took care of every detail I could possibly imagine. He managed all rentals, deliveries, set up, vendor coordination, etc (for an additional, very affordable fee). I'll admit I was really hands on, and very particular, but Gary wasn't phased at all by the minutiae I would email him about or the requests I would make. The day of the event, I didn't concern myself with a single detail and Gary handled it all without missing a beat. He also had some very helpful advice and guidance along the way. Since I didn't hire a wedding planner, it was particularly useful.Sent on 06/30/2012
More importantly, the wedding was incredible and beautiful. Everything I imagined and more. It was the perfect place for a rustic outdoor ceremony and reception. Complete with a fire pit for marshmallow roasting. It is great because there is a lot already available to you to work with (chairs, tables, baskets, etc.) , but it is still a blank enough canvas to let your imagination run wild.
