At Swallow Creek Ranch we provide the blank canvas for a wedding weekend of your dreams and allow you to shape your celebration as you see fit. You’ll have your pick of two gorgeous ocean view ceremony sites; the hillside amphitheater or the sea view meadow plus the enchanting barnyard for cocktail hour. Each location offers its own unique atmosphere. The party continues in our historic blue barn, your reception space for the night. Elegant or organic, rustic or modern… the scene is set, the ranch is your backdrop. Make your vision come true!

We are the only venue on the Central Coast that offers an ocean view ceremony and a historic barn for your wedding reception! Set on 600 acres of rolling hills our active cattle ranch provides coastal dream weddings between May - October. Choose between two of our spectacular ocean view ceremony sites. Sea View Meadow's magical Creekside location sits alongside a Eucalyptus grove and garden path that attract monarch butterflies and captures views of the sea. Hilltop Amphitheatre offers breathtaking panoramic vistas that overlook the coastal terraces of Estero Bluffs State Park. Receptions of up to 250 guests take place in our enchanting, historic blue dairy barn. Cocktail hour is a barnyard affair out in front of the barn beneath the bistro lights. The vintage creamery turned wedding suite and 1969 Airstream trailer provide two charming spaces for our couples to enjoy while getting ready on wedding day, complete with a full bathroom, minifridge and fun courtyard to sip mimosas and take pre-wedding photos.

We like to offer a relaxed schedule for our "Deluxe Weekend Weddings" where guests may use the ranch from Friday afternoon for rehearsal & set up, Saturday from 11 am - 11 pm, and Sunday until noon for clean up.

Our amenities include: 2 parking attendants, site managers, rustic bench ceremony seating for up to 150 guests, 50 chairs, 3 restrooms (1 ADA), 4 portable heaters, 6 buffet tables, 5 wine barrels for cocktail hour, 1 inside bar & 1 outside bar, refrigerator, outdoor bistro lighting, indoor bistro and cascade lighting, draping in the barn, 1 farm table, 2 vintage spool tables, 3 ceremony arch options and miscellaneous ranch decor.

    Dream Wedding Venue!!

    Swallow Creek Ranch is truly the most dreamy venue on the central coast! The property managers, Jonna and Reid were so helpful and involved in all of our wedding planning. They provided an adorable bridal suite and airstream for both the bridesmaids and groomsmen to get ready in, I was able to come early and enjoy the day from beginning to end. Our wedding day was so incredibly special and we can definitely thank swallow creek ranch for that!

    Swallow Creek Ranch's reply:

    It is always an extra treat to work with couples who grew up in SLO County. You and your families were so fun to work with and really made the team effort to make your wedding dream come true. Seeing Dalton surprise dj was a highlight I will never forget! You both were one of a kind. Thank you for sharing your special day with us.

    Beyond Perfect

    Not even sure where to start or what to say. We had the most perfect day at Swallow Creek Ranch. The venue is beyond stunning and so unique. Our guests were all in awe by the beauty of this place. Jonna, Reid, Kyla and the team are incredible people and great to work with. They are all so kind, personable, responsive, fun and easy to talk to. We really enjoyed our time at the venue and getting to know the team. The vendors they recommended are on point, and having a blank canvas really gave us the ability to make the wedding our own and special to us. We could not be more grateful to have found this magical place.

    Swallow Creek Ranch's reply:

    Our work here really is a labor of love! We were delighted that you & Chris felt so at home here & filled our “blank canvas” with rich, cultural wedding traditions. Every weekend we get to see the ranch transformed in a new way by another special couple. Thank you for sharing your elegant vision with us. It was truly a pleasure hosting your wedding here at Swallow Creek Ranch!
