Wellington Ranch is a rustic wedding venue located in Sacaton, Arizona. This venue is situated in a valley that has stunning vistas of the San Tan Mountains. There are plenty of charming elements scattered throughout the property that are sure to create a magical ambiance. This could be influenced by soft twinkle lights that line pathways, the plethora of roses and cacti that are peppered around, the mesmerizing fish pond that is bursting with life, or the casual outdoor bar that entices guests to come and have a drink. The Wellington family has worked tirelessly to curate a beautiful setting for weddings and special events, making the most of their location in the Gila River Indian Community.

Facilities and Capacity

Wellington Ranch is a five-acre property that offers plenty of space for delightful occasions to take place. The barn is able to hold a capacity of 120 guests. Outside capacity is 300 Guests, there is a gazebo as well as plenty of grassy knolls for events. As this venue is a working ranch, there are various animals around the property. Outdoor celebrations are not an issue as virtually any area is available for use. A featured garden is a popular spot to exchange vows as there is a brick path that is able to act as an aisle for ceremonies.

Services Offered

This venue works with preferred and trusted caterers in order to provide the best services available to their clients. Bartenders, wedding planners, and entertainment services can all be coordinated through Wellington Ranch. Should the couple wish to use their own choice in vendors, this is accommodated pending approval by the Wellington family. All-inclusive packages are on offer and both setup and cleanup are provided, taking the stress off of the betrothed couple so that they can focus on what is important.

Location

Wellington Ranch is its own slice of paradise, located just southeast of Phoenix, Arizona. Plenty of overnight accommodation options are within a short 20 min. drive of the property, allowing you and your guests the convenient comfort of close proximity.

    Remarkable

    Lorraine and Norman are amazing! Since day one of us deciding we wanted our wedding on their land they were with us every step of the way. They went above and beyond for us. Everything was perfect. They made my wedding day a breezy. Definitely would recommend them to everyone I know getting married. They made them selfs available the whole day of my wedding in case we needed anything. Their land/venue is absolutely beautiful. I have always wanted a barn/ranch style wedding and if it wasn’t for them it would have never happened. I seriously can not express how greatful I am. If you want a barn wedding but still be able to afford life after please look no future this is 100% the venue. You will NOT be disappointed with anything!

    My step mother was so impressed with how they handled everything and helped. She is wanting to book them for my little sister wedding.

    Smooth, Fun, financially correct decision.

    We found this place through wedding wire and wow! What a beaut hidden out there. Nobody had any idea something like that was out there. You seriously can’t beat the price. With everything that comes with it, it’s a no brainer. A barn, a field, pond, paster, animals, literally so many spots to take pictures at. Great place. Wedding day went smooth. Was a great time and really had a smooth process through this stressful time lol. The owners are incredibly nice. Workable, and good ol country people.

    Wellington Ranch's reply:

    Thank you for choosing our ranch for your wedding day. You two were a joy to work with, so happy it was everything you wanted.

    Sincerely
    Lorraine & Norman Wellington
