City Girl marries a Country Boy & this place was perfect!
As a city girl that loves vintage that happened to fall in love with a Texas country boy who met in sunny San Diego, this place gave us vintage, class, barn, country and so much more all in one place. We wanted an outdoor wedding in a setting that we felt comfortable and it wasn't overly fancy (because that wasn't us). We were able to make the venue OURS! As a DIY bride, I was able to bring my vision to life and make it all fit in the venue! Me dressing the venue only enhanced the venue's beauty. The horses on the farm are not removed during the time of our event and it added a special touch for us since we only dream of having a ranch one day, it was like looking into the future. Additionally, the venue has a lot of add-ons like a vintage bath tube, mirrors, french doors, vintage dressers, vintage milk jugs, bakers racks, etc. in which are all up for grabs for you to use the day of your wedding, they even provide the option for additional cost for you to take a picture with one of their horses. IT WAS JUST ALL MAGICAL AND PERFECT! If we could do it all over again, we would get married back at the farm!Sent on 07/31/2019

It's hard not to fall in love with the natural beauty of the farm and its beautiful barns. Our wedding day was nothing short of the WEDDING OF OUR DREAMS. The Sweetwater Farms’ staff was great to work with from the beginning. We started working with Jennifer, the onsite wedding coordinator, about 9 months before the wedding. Jennifer is AMAZING; she helped us find our vendors and met with every one of them to make sure all was going to be perfect on our day. Whenever I had any questions or changes to our ceremony or reception, I would just email Jennifer and she would change it in her records. We met again a couple weeks before the wedding to confirm all the details.Sent on 08/22/2016
We had a wonderful experience with Sweetwater Farms and would recommend them to other brides. Their wedding packages are also a good value especially when you factor in all the tables, chairs and very cool vintage furniture they let you use at no additional cost.
