Ranch Wedding in California, Anybody?

Howdy Pardner! I thought you and your fiancé would be interested in a few choice ranch wedding venues in California.

Greenhorn Creek Guest Ranch
Quincy, California

Greenhorn Creek Guest Ranch has been in operation since 1962, and is located in Quincy, north of Sacramento, fairly close to Lassen National Forest. That's right. Not much out there. Except really beautiful country and a great place for horseback riding. Which makes it a perfect place for a ranch destination wedding!

Greenhorn Creek Guest Ranch specializes in destination weddings, has accommodations for approximately 80 people, and offers loads of fun activities, such as trail rides, wagon rides, line dancing and volleyball. You can get more info by emailing them at

Taber Ranch
Capay Valley

Taber Ranch is located in Capay Valley, east of Sacramento. They offer ceremonies at their country altar on the lawn overlooking the vineyard and pond, or on their wedding plateau overlooking Capay Valley. And, of course, there's a barn for a barn dance. You can get more info about their wedding services by emailing

Highland Guest Ranch
Philo, California

That's right, in Philo, located east of Ukia, southeast of Mendocino, 2.5 hours from the Bay Area; about 4 hours from Sacramento. Highland Guest Ranch can host your small, intimate wedding, as well as a larger destination wedding with over 100 guests. For those of you having larger weddings, you will be required to book the entire ranch for a minimum of 16 adults for a two-night minimum. And, yes, there is a barn for a barn dance.

There's plenty to do for guests of Highland Guest Ranch, including horseback riding, hiking or biking. They also offer yoga and tennis. The location is also ideal for those of you into wine, as it is located within the Anderson Valley appellation, which includes such fabulous wines as Roederer Estate and Husch Vineyards. Roederer Estate, for those who don't know, produces some really fine, inexpensive sparkling wines.
