- Wedding: July 2012
I’ve scoured the internet, wedding sites, photographer blogs, etc. and just wanted to throw this out there and see if I’m missing anything. We’d love a pretty, outdoor venue where we can do the ceremony and reception in the same location, can accommodate 150-175, and lets us bring our own alcohol/full bar. In a perfect world, we could bring our own caterer. I know, tall order, right?
I have checked out:
Flying Caballos Ranch (actually almost booked, had the check signed and everything, then got an email that pricing changed for 2012. It’s now out of budget. 🙁 So sad because I LOVED this place.), Santa Margarita Ranch, Spanish Oaks Ranch, Dana Powers House/Barn, Cayucos Creek Barn, Tiber Canyon Olive Oil Ranch, Dune Lakes, and a host of other wineries, bed and breakfasts, and farms that don’t fit our capacity needs. We will be viewing Taft Barn next month.
Originally, the whole ranch idea seemed perfect because I’m fine with DIYing almost everything, and loved the freedom that a lot of the ranches provided. I realize we might end up having to change what we thought we were going to have as a venue, but just checking to see if any central coast Bees know something I don’t?
Although my fiance is originally from SLO, we live in the Bay Area and are open to places between. Thanks for any advice or suggestions! I’ll just be so happy once we’ve booked a place and I can move on to fixating on something else! 😉
