    Best venue ever! Thank you Summer Star Ranch

    I can't say enough good things about getting married at Summer Star Ranch. Starr and Matt were incredibly wonderful to work with. We got married at a beautiful spot at the ranch with the mountains in the background and we were blown away by the beauty of the ranch. Starr brought all the chairs down to the ceremony spot and drove my family members back and forth from the ceremony spot. The barn is absolutely beautiful and we loved having dinner and drinks there. I can't believe how beautiful the barn is! And Starr recommended a BBQ caterer who was amazing and the food was delicious! We also loved staying at the cabin that night and waking up to a sunrise with the horses. I chose the venue from out of state and had no idea what to expect as I only saw photos online but I was completely blown away by how beautiful the setting was and how helpful Starr and Matt were in every way. They checked in with us through out the wedding day to see how they could help or if there was anything we needed which was so appreciated. And they were so helpful communicating by email before the wedding. I had a lot of questions over email and Starr was always so helpful and responsive. I can't wait to return to Summer Star Ranch, it was incredibly beautiful and the wedding was more than we could ever have asked for. Thank you Starr and Matt for the best day ever!

    Rustic Perfection

    This ranch is absolutely beautiful and so easy to get too. The barn they built for weddings is so nice and rustic and beautiful. I might sound repetitive but the ranch, the cabins, the wedding barn and the views are just perfect, beautiful and stunning. The owners of the ranch are also so nice and respond so quickly. They do everything to accommodate you with anything you might need for your special day. Thanks Matt and Starr for a wonderful and unforgettable experience at your ranch.
