From the owner of the venue, Christianna:
California Ranch Events is a historic ranch with regenerative spirit! All the historic charm and open space just begs for creativity making it a magnet for the free spirited couple. Fifth generation owner, who happens to be a yoga teacher, opened up the ranch as a wedding venue and offers yoga to brides and their crew for the big day. Talk about the magic elixir for a chilled out bride! Burning Man was the honeymoon destination for the young California Ranch Events couple accompanied by a trusty Stout tent. This was the source of inspiration for a glamping village! Along with a charming farmhouse and cabins, weddings can be transformed into a full-on weekend retreat.
The ranch banks on crafty vendors to pull off truly unique events. Photographer Danielle Poff is a stellar pick for vibrant & colorful photos. She has an eye for catching the gypsy-on-the-run lovers and knows how to make elements POP! Plus her husband does video, which is a great selling point for couples wanting both photo & video at their wedding!
Tara proved to be a fierce florist decorating a massive geometrical IKO ceremony structure from Buzzworthy Events with natural greenery and soft flowing feathers. This was balanced with a gorgeous flower crown for our lovely bride… did I mention we like color? Vintage rentals from Pieces by Violet served as the perfect lounge in the glamping villiage. And tabletops by Classic Party added just the right touch. Our lovely boho bride was beautified by Bay Area Beautiful and fittingly swathed in none other than Lovely Bride with gals by her side decked out in Show Me Your Mumu. The festival spirit was alive with this one featuring music by LMJ Entertainment, who also makes a seamless and entertaining MC for the whole show. Big backdrop marquee letters from Pine and Perry added big time to the festival vibe. And who doesn’t love a photo booth? But a vintage VW photo booth… come on! Complete with festival inspired invitations from Pigment and Parchment. To top it all off, there was a donut wall… yes you read that right, a donut WALL from High Voltage Donuts. And the cutest gelato cart you’ve ever seen with a damn good assortment of flavors from Sweet Springs.
