    I love the venue so much, I want to live here!

    We were married here this last weekend and my day was perfect. No stress, no issues. Truly an all inclusive venue. The vendors they work with are top notch and the night went off without a hitch. I work full time and go to nursing school at night, and I am a bit of a control freak with planning but let me assure you that letting go an having trust in Angel and her team to carry out my vision was so simple and easy. I cant imaging how I would have planned this day without them. The few times during the planning process I felt anxious (from outside sources, nothing to do with SSR) Angel was there for me to comfort and reassure me that our day would be magical. Angel and her husband Richard work so hard and take such pride in their beautiful property that it is hard not to feel the love of the land upon arriving. The ranch gave me such a feeling of peace when I was there. Kitty and the team of ladies are magnificent. There was not one time during our day where we wanted for anything. They worked tirelessly all day to make our wedding beautiful and anticipated our needs all evening. They feel like family now. So caring and such genuine people.

    Such a great venue! (vendors prospective)

    I absolutely love when I book wedding at this venue, Angel and her staff are so helpful and truly do care about their couples! There is so many amazing photo spots with such great light due to the vas amount of trees and greenery on the property. When I am shooting photos or creating a wedding film I never have to worry about lighting overpowering the wedding day. The stream is sooo cool! if you want to see for yourself check out a wedding film I just posted!
