We never wanted to leave!
My wife and I planned our February wedding from Shanghai at Sunset Ranch and have nothing but positive remarks about communication, service, and presentation. First off, communicating with Laurie and Gregg was very easy through email as their response time was usually next-day. They were very accomodating for everything we requested. The property itself is absolutely beautiful. My wife and I wanted to choose a location that naturally allowed people to wander, socialize, and take pictures. We couldn't have been more pleased with having the ceremony in the Fern's Garden and then enjoying the sunset in the meadow. Also, the barn was a great place for dinner. The giant doors that open to beautiful chandeliers couldn't have been more picturesque. Overall, my wife and I were very happy with everything at Sunset Ranch.Sent on 03/29/2020

Just the best!
When my husband and I decided to have a destination wedding in Hawai’i, our initial thoughts of a typical Hawaiian destination wedding would be on a beach. But when we toured Sunset Ranch, we fell in love at first sight. The venue is just breathtakingly beautiful. And another one of the key points of why we fell in love with the venue, was the fact that it’s both a Federally and State protected land, so if we returned 50 years from now, it would look exactly the same.
Like many others, our wedding was postponed due to the pandemic. While this affected many couples hoping to tie the knot in 2020, this also affected the wedding industry immensely. What meant a lot to us was how the Sunset Ranch team empathized with us, provided us with options, and helped us through the difficult decision to postpone our wedding not once, but twice, because of the uncertainties of covid and shut downs. Our wedding coordinator Alia and the sunset ranch team were just amazing. Alia was always only an email, text, or phone call away.
Fast forward to a year later, we were finally able to fly to Hawaii for our wedding on 4/11/21. The venue was just as beautiful as when we first toured it in 2019. With Alia as our coordinator, we had no doubt our wedding day would be everything we imagined it would be (covid modifications and all). We cannot express how grateful we are for Alia, the team at sunset ranch, and all our vendors who made our big day possible.Sent on 04/18/2021

Best day ever
LOOK NO FURTHER! Sunset Ranch is the best wedding venue in OAHU. While venue searching, sunset ranch was obviously our top choice (can't say no to the breathtaking VIEW this venue has!!) and without any hesitation, we booked the venue right away! We had our ceremony at the Fern Gardens and our Reception at Charlie's Pond. The SUNSET here is breathtaking, our wedding photos turned out so beautiful :) We did our wedding ala carte and availed their event coordination. Our wedding was the best day our lives- THANKS TO LAURIE & HER TEAM! Laurie did NOT treat us like we were "just another" client. She helped us through every step and her dedication & hard work were truly astounding! She listened and accommodated my requests. She also had a lot of excellent suggestions that made our wedding even more prettierSent on 03/28/2020

Beautiful place on a Beautiful island...Paradise found! What more could you want?!! ( : Magnificent! ( :
Sunset Ranch is an absolutely beautiful venue with amazing views of the North Shore of Oahu. It's unique locale provides a completely private experience combined with stunning beauty that puts this venue at the top of the list. Sunset Ranch comes highly recommended to any couple seeking a one of a kind country wedding!
This stunning mountain top ranch won't be the best kept secret for very long. Perched upon the top of Waimea Valley this ranch has the most stunning vistas in the whole state. You will find everything you need here for an enchanting and delightful event. What I can't translate into words however is the warm, romantic charm that the property exhibits.
