The Condor's Nest Ranch

San Diego



For a rustic wedding filled with charm and love, look no further than The Condor’s Nest Ranch. Ranch owners Lisa and Bob Biesterfeld thrive on creating memorable experiences and want couples to fall in love all over again on their 20 acre ranch in North San Diego County. Enter the property through a palm-lined driveway, taking in horses and variety of animals by the old barn area. Stoic iron gates surround the estate, allowing for a private getaway for you and your guests. Creating a character-filled look is a breeze at the Ranch, with its rustic fences, old farmhouses, and a prop room filled with vintage decor including delicate linens, silver dessert displays, and historic signs. Exchange vows at dusk with lanterns and candlelight or opt for a sun-drenched ceremony beneath the property’s billowy trees. Dress up the indoor barn for your reception, or select an outdoor setting such as the lush pool area, which boasts views of the Pacific on a clear day. The Condor’s Nest Ranch offers a complete wedding experience for those seeking a fun and elegant wedding with a handmade feel.
