Had my wedding here in May 2018 and it was the best decision I ever could have made. The property is magical, the staff goes above and beyond, and the amenities are amazing. All you need to do is tour the property to see how special this place is.
A wonderful place!!! It felt like a fairy tale to get married there :) I highly recommened this place
Couldn't imagine a better place to have our special day. We also had the family stay on the property while we stayed in the barn and it was so wonderful to have everyone together for the weekend. Some of the most memorable times my family has had together.
Ashley! You and Shane had such a beautiful spirit and energy! It was such a joy to coordinate with you, Margie and Nicole throughout the planning process! Thank you for choosing Sacred Mountain as your 4 day Destination Wedding!!
Our wedding was beyond what I could have imagined, in large part due to the beauty & magical feeling of Sacred Mountain Julian. From the moment we entered the courtyard during our initial site visit, I was sold & it just got better and better! Not only was it a beautiful setting for a wedding, but being able to host our family on the property for the weekend took it to another level-many memories & much bonding made. We are so appreciative of Marti for opening her home so others can share in the experience of being at SMJ. Plus, her team is just awesome-shout out to Megan, Melanie & Daniel for taking care of our needs. SMJ will forever have a special place in our hearts. Thank you!!
Lynne! We feel so honored to have met such beautiful and creative people! We wish you and Anthony the best and hope to have him playing Flamenco Guitar on our property soon!
The word I kept hearing from my guests after the wedding was "magical" and I think it was largely due to the setting -- Sacred Mountain Ranch. I can't thank Marti, Melanie, Megan, and the staff enough for being so accommodating, flexible, generous, and responsive throughout the months leading up to the wedding and on the actual day. They truly made the venue perfect. This is the wedding venue every bride dreams about!
Thank you so much Maleeka! Your design of the venue, to this day, has still not been repeated! From your Thai Ceremony in the Meadow and Reception at the Plateau, we were in awe of your creative design!! We wish you and Bridger a lifetime of wedded bliss!
We had our wedding at Sacred Mountain in June and it was perfect in every way! We had a small, sunset ceremony on the plateau and celebrated with our closet loved ones. Sacred Mountain provided a beautiful, intimate environment and escape from our hectic, city life. The venue is the perfect blend of rustic elegance! We loved that we even got to take photos with Marti's horse! My husband and I look forward to returning to Sacred Mountain to remind ourselves of all the memories we created at this special place. It's a little hidden gem for sure!
Meghan! Your intimate ceremony with Chris was so beautiful. We absolutely love your family photos with the horses, especially when our sweet Cosmo has whole tongue sticking out! We look forward to welcoming you back to Sacred Mountain soon!
If you are looking for a getaway retreat style event Sacred Mountain is your spot. We were at the Venue from Thursday to Sunday and it was the perfect way to spend time with our people and take full advantage of the venue. Our weekend was fantastic. My husband and I were married at the end of June. We had 125 guests and it was the perfect amount. We were married on the Sunset Plateau then walked a short distance to the reception area that was filled with twinkle lights, natural greenery. We had guests who made the trip from San Diego, Oklahoma, Texas, Arizona. The hardest part about the wedding was leaving the retreat! We would absolutely get married here again and again. Marti, Melanie and her team were accommodating, responsive and professional during our 6 months of planning. The weekend of Danny who lives on property was there to help remove items we didn't need and bring items we didn't know we would need. They truly want to serve and make your experience as seamless as possible. Sacred Mountain will always have a special place in our hearts. I look forward to visiting Julian and reminiscing about our magically wonderful wedding day for years to come! You will never regret booking this venue, but you might regret not getting married here! It was worth every penny.

Katelynn! Your wedding with Robbie was an absolute Sacred Mountain Fairy Tale dream come true!! The beauty was endless. We still look back at your photo album in awe and recently shed tears after seeing the video. You encompass love, beauty, and grace! Thank your for celebrating at Sacred Mountain!
Incredible venue and staff. Truly an unforgettable setting! Everyone was so impressed with the beauty of Sacred Mountain. Plus, staying in the wonderful cottages to celebrate the entire weekend with our families made it that much more special. This is THE ONLY venue you want to use in Julian for your special day : )
A 5 does not do this wonderful Venue Justice. There needs to be a higher option!! Everyone was kind, caring, professional and always responded same day. From the very first email it felt like we were at home. During our event, we were at ease with everything. The houses were stocked 100% with everything you could think of! Would stay at Sacred mountain again and again.
Jessica!!! Thank you so much for this review! We truly do our best to be as responsive as possible! You and Jeff were so wonderful to work with! Your mountaintop pictures are to die for!!! We wish you two the best years yet to come!
Marti was my wedding god-mother, seriously. she was generous, kind, and super duper laid back, making me feel relaxed and happy. Sacred Mountain retreat is indeed a magical, serene, beautiful and scard place, that i feel honored to have discovered. Melaine, was beyond amazing, beyond kind, beyond sweet.....
You're lucky if u get to have this sacred space as your venue, and even luckier to work and get to know Marti and Melanie.
Thank you guys for making the wedding of my dreams come true.
Edith!!! Your wedding with Scott was such a delight! We loved your cultural and traditional additions to the entire event! You both were so wonderful and easy to work with throughout the entire planning process. Thank you for such a kind review! We would love to see your entire photo album!!!
We had our wedding here last year and it is literally a dream come true! The most spectatular,romantic place ever! We rented it out for the weekend and had our wedding party also join us, it was a weekend event! San Diego has endless wedding venues but none of them can compare to the experience you'll have here! Marti is amazing and very fast to respond and does so much to accomidate all of your needs. It is just a magical place and we will DEFINITELY be back for visits!!!
Katelyn!! We are still in awe of your pictures going down the canopied driveway! Your wedding was so incredibly beautiful! Thanks for celebrating with Sacred Mountain!
We rented the whole mountain package so we basically had the wedding for two days. You need to have a sense of what you want so it gets laid out the way you vision. The plateauin the late afternoon was beautiful (pretty warm in August) and made for a perfect backdrop. The multi-level patio/lawn area are perfect for dinner down on the lawn and reception above. They provide quite a few things for your use. Very nice staff to work with. Our wedding was a completely DIY so we were very hands on and they were very accommodating. Because we had the whole mountain we had a small family and close friends bbq the next day at the main house that has a pool. Fun times and great memories!
Everything was wonderful. The team was extremely helpful and accommodating. There were a couple of surprise changes to the contract that we had to work through but it was all good. The price for the place was way over budget for us but it ended up being a great value!
