Dreamlike setting for perfect wedding
Willow Creek Ranch was everything I hoped for to create a perfect wedding..The setting was heavenly, green and lush. Even the downpour the night before and the on and off drizzle on the day of the wedding couldn't take away from the success of the event. Sue, the venue owner, and her team. were so easy to work with. She was flexible and knew how to make changes to protect guests from the elements and was even able to acquire tents two days before the wedding, which was for 200 people. The tents actually added something magical to the setting. I particularly liked the options I had to make changes to the actual wedding. I got a choice of DJ, worked with Bethany to create the beautiful flower arrangements, and could bring in my own beer and wine and caterer. Not one guest had a negative comment about the wedding and they raved about the setting, services, and dreamlike atmosphere, and all at a reasonable price. We even got a rainbow over the bride and groom in one photo.Sent on 10/24/2018

No words to describe how amazing the venue is and Sue is so great to work with. I fell in love with the venue, but Sue sealed the deal. She is so involve and it feels like she takes every wedding personal and wants to do everything she can to make it the best day ever. My wedding is in September and I can't wait!

This is a wonderful venue in a beautiful area of north San Diego County. Sue Williams is such a pleasure to work with, understands the needs of her clients, and provides wedding services that meet and exceed their expectations. You will find her prices surprisingly affordable, and she works very well with your budget. I highly recommend you schedule an appointment with her and see what she can offer you.
