Are any brides getting married at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, CA? What has your experience been with the venue since the pandemic began? Our wedding was scheduled for June 2020 and we postponed until January 2021. In my experience, they have been uncommunicative and I am struggling to get clear information. We are considering cancellation all together and having a smaller wedding elsewhere.


What has your experience been?

    Ladies! I spoke with the CEO. If you didn’t get a dance floor at your wedding, ask for them to take that charge off your contract!! They still charge you $500 for a dance floor!!

    It was so beautiful, so perfect!


    We didn’t get charged, but they didn’t take the money off until a week before when we called and complained about several things.

    Hello everyone,
    Our wedding is at the end of June. Super stressed as CR has yet to respond. I have nothing planned and can’t seem to get anywhere with them. They don’t return phone calls. Ignore everything! Does anyone have any insight ?

    I have had to incessantly call them, email and become kind of passive aggressive for them to call me back or ask for a manager. It has been ridiculous!

    That’s how I’ve gotten through to them. I also just booked an in person appointment for more information. That’s how I really got to talk to someone.

    Hello Debbie, no word on our end. The BBB responded back to us stating our case is unresolved due to CR not responding back to our claim. Still no word over here. Our wedding is towards the end of July & I’m afraid we will not get our money back. They have been paid in full already. This has been a horrible experience 😓

    Hi Sandra
    They ignited our attorney as well. We get married the end of June. So stressed really it’s the worst and almost fe like postponing again as I can’t imagine spending $$$ on an overpriced dinner.

    Hi Debbie,


    I got married a few weeks ago and the only way I got anywhere with them was to hunt down the CEO. We got directly on the phone with him and got a lot figured out and some prices reduced. I super recommend getting in touch with him. I can give you his direct number and email if you like?
