Amazing, gorgeous, perfect! Just a few of the words to describe our wedding at the Summer Star Ranch. Matt, Starr, and Laura came to our rescue when we lost our venue four months before our 5-20-17 wedding. After losing you venue so close to your wedding you feel defeated and in complete panic mode. Starr and Laura eased all of my concerns and we knew this was the venue we were meant to have.Sent on 02/18/2017
One hour before the ceremony it started raining, and, of course, we had originally planned an outdoor ceremony. Matt and his team were so amazing! They kept me calm and quickly moved the entire ceremony inside the reception tent which was just as beautiful. Oh, and not to mention my father ended up in the ER the morning of and Matt offered to drive into town and pick him up to ensure he made it to the ceremony and then drive him home after. The team at Summer Star Ranch are absolutely amazing, and are willing to do whatever it takes to ensure you have an absolutely perfect day. We did and we wouldn't change a single thing.
Our guests loved everything about the Summer Star Ranch from the beautiful setting to the fully functional outhouses. It truly is where city chic meets the wild west. And if rain on your wedding day is good luck then we are set for life! Thank you all so much for everything you did to give us the most perfect day!
Summer Star Ranch's reply:It may have been an unfortunate situation that brought you to us, but sometimes things happen for a reason, and we couldn't be more thrilled to be the place you start your life together! It will be here before you know it!!! Starr, Matt and Laura
