    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!

    First of all the location is simply dreamy! Although I have spent quite a bit of time in Laguna Beach I just recently discovered this hidden gem. The food is delicious and Jayme and the team simply lovely to work with!

    Absolute Perfection!

    The Ranch at Laguna Beach exceeded all of our expectations for our daughter's recent wedding! The venue is breathtaking, the food is delicious, the service is stellar, the rooms and cottages are 5 star and the help from the catering manager, Jayme, was above and beyond everything we had hoped for. I would definitely recommend The Ranch to everyone!!
