I can’t recommend Rancho Nicasio and the good people there enough. A special thanks to Julii and Max. Our wedding was early July and we had the ceremony and dinner outside, then dancing inside. Julii ... Read more was fantastic at coordinating everything and taking care of ALL the details. We had one brief meeting with her to give a general feel for what we were looking for and then just trusted her judgement to figure everything out, and she nailed it! For example, we had no idea what the menu was going to be until it was served, since she just “got whatever looked good at the local farmer’s market,” and it got rave reviews from our guests. Kind of last minute, I came to Julii asking what we could do with all the kids. No problem, she found some babysitters, set them up in the bridal cottage, and all the kids and parents had a blast. The venue has an elegant, rural, casual atmosphere, yet the staff working behind the scenes are highly regimented and professional. The surrounding scenery is beautifully pastoral, so much so that we had to tear our photographer away from shooting. The outdoor area was very convenient and conducive to mingling and eating after the ceremony, then the indoor space was perfect for a packed raucous dance floor. If you do decide to have your wedding here, I would recommend trusting their judgement and letting them make recommendations for you. They’re good at it and it makes it less stressful for you. Obviously you don’t get to compare and review a lot of wedding venues, but we had high expectations and Rancho far exceeded them!

Relaxed and Rustic

Julii was amazing! I highly recommend Rancho Nicasio for an outdoor wedding. They take care of the linens/chairs, food, bar, setup and break down. They even have a ton of decorations we could use so ... Read more we didn't need to buy all new things. The food was delicious and our guests had a blast!

The Perfect Wedding

Our wedding at Rancho Nicasio was absolutely perfect; from the beautiful backdrop of the rolling hills to the delicious food (guests raved about it! ) we couldn't have asked for a more perfect place. ... Read more The staff, especially Julli and Max were great for helping with all of the details. They are well-organized and know what they are doing. The cost was reasonable and Julli has a ton of great ideas for decorations without breaking the budget. We can't wait to come back for dinner on our anniversary!
