The Ranch was perfect in every way!
From the moment we stepped out of the car and walked up to the Ranch patio overlooking the valley and trees we knew we loved it. The venue is gorgeous, but the services they provide truly make this place a gem! Jayme (the events manager) is truly warm and welcoming and made planning with the Ranch so easy. She recommended our wedding planner (LanAnh at Mele Amore, who we LOVED) and they made everything come together seamlessly and smoothly. The ceremony under the trees was gorgeous, the patio is breathtaking, the food is amazing, and the staff were all so friendly and professional. Everything went seemlessly and perfectly and I never could have imagined planning such a beautiful wedding could be so easy. We had so many compliments about all of it! Thanks so much to Jayme and everyone at the Ranch!Sent on 06/03/2019

The Ranch is simply the most gorgeous property in South Orange County. A hidden gem to be sure. The canyon setting is spectacular. The wedding team is amazing, and the attention to detail what every couple wishes for. I heartily recommend The Ranch for your special day.
