The five-acre site offers a beautifully manicured lawn ,vine-festooned gazebo, a shady grove of pines featuring an outdoor stage, outside full service bar, a large open grill area, patios, decks and more. Memorable views of rolling hills, pastures and farmland are the picturesque backdrop for your unforgettable wedding. You will be escorted down the aisle on the stunning brick patio, surrounded by flowering rose bushes and all the people you love. After a magical ceremony guests can take in the view of the soft rolling hills of the valley while enjoying a cocktail and dining under the pines.
Your memorable indoor reception begins in the Rancho Room, decorated with local landscapes by acclaimed artist Carol Satriani .The Rancho Room is the perfect setting for elegant dining. Step through the French doors onto the deck to enjoy the cool evening air and the stars twinkling above. Dance the night away as rustic sconces and a wagon-wheel chandelier lights up the dance floor and the original 19th-century brick fireplace casts a romantic ambience into the room. The Rancho Room, Lawn and Gardens are included in all of the "wedding packages."
