This wedding venue is amazing. My friend got married here and it was magical. Valerie was very attentive and was there to meet all of our needs. Everyone was impressed! We will be back and book a mini getaway soon! I can’t imagine why someone would give this place a bad review.Sent on 02/05/2021

We had our Reception @ Sparks Ranch resort on June 13th 2017 and stayed overnight in the guest house. Valerie was a true blessing on our special day and will forever be considered a part of the family now! My husband and I spent our evening gazing at the stars, listening to the waterfall, relaxing in the pool and hot tub, shooting pool into the wee hours of the morning and reflecting on the beautiful day we shared with family and friends. All of which would not have been possible without the beauty that is Sparks Ranch Resort. Valerie was consistent and helpful with all of her suggestions and expertise on how to best utilize the many resources the ranch has to offer as well as her knowledge on local vendors for all of the tiny details. Her genuine and generous spirit brought the whole experience full circle. We felt completely at home. In the morning we reluctantly said our goodbyes wishing we could just continue living in that moment again and again. I cannot express enough how truly blessed we feel to have been able to begin our marriage journey in the comforts if a cozy but luxurious private getaway that resonated such peaceful surroundings and the amount of stress relief we felt in the hands of its owner. Thank you Valerie Sparks from the bottom of our hearts -Mr. And Mrs. Matthew OwensSent on 06/15/2017
