Perfect Central Coast Venue

My husband, Matt, and I have been talking about getting married at Swallow Creek Ranch since before we got engaged -- it just seemed like the most beautiful setting in the most perfect place (right above Villa Creek, where we've watched many sunsets!). So, when we got engaged, it was our obvious first choice, and we ended up getting married there last week (8/19/2023). Our wedding at Swallow Creek Ranch was even better than I could've imagined -- of course the scenery was absolutely gorgeous, but we were also so grateful to have Jonna and Reid overseeing everything on our wedding day. They truly made us feel so welcome and celebrated, and helped us so much throughout the process, from our initial venue tour last year to clean-up the day after the wedding. We picked all of our vendors from their suggested list and it made the day go so smoothly, since everyone knew Jonna/Reid and the venue. All in all, it was the perfect day, and all of our guests couldn't stop gushing about the venue. I would recommend Swallow Creek Ranch to anyone hoping to get married on the Central Coast!

The perfect venue

I have been to countless venues for catering events and having this venue for our wedding was incredible. Jonna and her team were so helpful and professional. Their kindness and flexibility made our weekend extremely easy and low stress which is a relief after all the planning! They made sure everything went smoothly and the place was absolutely beautiful. The hill top view was impeccable and the garden was perfect for photos. The barn was a blast as it had great space for a dance floor and was easy to move around in. It stayed warm with the heaters provided and it was also very wonderful to have bathrooms inside of the barn. Everything was very clean and tidy and we loved the outdoor space to be able to take a break and grab a drink! Highly recommend this venue due to its gorgeous location and ease of service. A lot is provided to you and they definitely make it a fun easy experience.
