The perfect venue for the perfect day!

We had the most amazing wedding at the old rancho. All of our guests absolutely loved our venue and all of the staff went above and beyond to help us. From planning months out to the last minute details to the day of the event we felt so supported by the staff. We wouldn’t change a thing, the old rancho and personal touch dining made our wedding absolutely perfect!

The Autumn wedding of our dreams

The Old Rancho gave my daughter the wedding of her dreams. It was an absolutely perfect day. The staff were so easy to work with and responded to my questions right away. The quality of the food and the beauty of the venue can't be beat. I'm still getting thank you notes from guests saying that it was the best wedding they've ever been to . I didn't have to do anything. The staff took care of everything. I don't have one single complaint. It was a magical day.

Highly Recommend

My experience with the Old Rancho was amazing. My wedding day was perfect. The staff was great. I enjoyed working with Kendra, Caitlin and Sam. They were all very attentive and always answered my questions. Caitlin and Sam did an amazing job at making sure the wedding day went smooth. I'm so glad we decided to book The Old Rancho.
