practice trusting the universe - great preparation for married life

We crafted our ceremony to reflect us as a couple; untraditional, quirky and a dash of spirit. I thought I might get nervous in front of so many people, but as I stood out in the rolling hills under the open sky, I swear it was just me and him with the trees as our witness.

With a variety of accommodations for up to 30 people, it’s like going on a trip with all your favorite people, only everyone came to celebrate your love story. Cozy up on the front porch as you sip coffee and watch the horses or do some yoga. And of course you’ll dress up and dance until your feet hurt so you just might end up in the hot tub under the stars.

There is something magical that happens over the course of a wedding weekend at the ranch between Friday night rehearsal and Sunday morning brunch. It's the in-between when the real moments occur. That doesn't happen if everyone is only there for the picture perfect production part of the wedding. Rich, authentic connection develops amongst family and friends, old and new. Even past tensions tend to dissolve in the space. Open nature has a way of being too big for small minds.

vintage ranch house

Even the most relaxed bride wants to look beautiful on her wedding day! The 1890's ranch house with all its vintage charm, great lighting and lots of space is ideal for getting ready.

whiskey & cologne

We have equal aesthetic appeal for the groom and his buddies. The "Man Cave" is an 1860's bunkhouse built of old growth redwood with an integrated music studio.

let's eat!

The barn was built in the 1860's - talk about built to last! This former home of 19 draft horses now let's you choose between dining inside with a historic feel or outside with the facade of the barn under the open sky.
