Weddings at any time of the year are beautiful and comfortable at air-conditioned C Bar Ranch, located in Alachua, Florida. Our luxury barn wedding venue sits amid majestic oaks on 191 acres of forest and family-owned-and-operated farmland. Hold your ceremony at one of five, beautiful sites, including on the looking-glass pond or under 150-year-old trees. Then head to the air-conditioned barn -- with elegant chandeliers, wood ceilings and floors, lovely draping and reception seating for 200 -- to celebrate and dance the night away. We strive to exceed your expectations with our three wedding packages, starting at $6,000. Our most popular wedding package includes three days of private access at the ranch, plus many included services, such as planning and coordination, linens (choice of about 30 colors), bartending, DJ, wedding-party boxed lunches and much more. Couples have access to the property the day before the wedding to rehearse, relax, and decorate. You even may hold your rehearsal dinner on the property. Then have all-day access on the day of the wedding as early as 7 a.m. to begin getting ready, until as late as 11 p.m. for their celebration. Return the day after from 8 a.m. until noon to retrieve items left behind, including vehicles. With any wedding package, couples get exclusive, private access to the venue and grounds for engagement photos. And most special pets can be included in engagement photos and wedding ceremonies. The barn has an easily accessible, warming kitchen for your caterer, with ample room for food preparation and cake cutting on rolling tables. The kitchen is fully equipped with a freezer, refrigerator, two ovens, three-compartment sink, plating tables, and commercial ice maker. Side porches feature lighting, built-in cocktail tables and ceiling fans. A patio area under large oak trees features a fire pit and is illuminated with market lights and uplighting under the trees. Ranch staff will set up for your reception in any configuration you’d like, and they are happy to advise on a floor plan that would work well for your event. They have a vast selection of decor from which you can choose, including antique whiskey barrels and wine barrels, centerpieces, lanterns, signs, shepherds hooks, easels, glassware, silk flowers and garlands, table numbers, free-standing barn doors, and much more. They also can provice yard games, such as Giant Jenga, Giant Connect Four and corn hole personalized with your last name. They want it to feel like your personal party barn for the weekend. Representatives from C Bar Ranch will assist with parking and will be on-site during your event to monitor the cleanliness of facilities, replenish restrooms, and handle any concerns that may arise, and to help other vendors work as a team to make it your Best Day Ever.
