enue all weekend with our entire bridal party. It was so great not having to go back & forth! The day went off without a hitch & we cannot thank Cottonwood Farms enough for providing the most beautiful venue. Every single area of the ranch is unique & made for a gorgeous ceremony, cocktail hour & reception dancing under the market lights! It was amazing! We even held our rehearsal dinner in the pool area. A weekend we will cherish forever & never forget!!

It’s so nice to find a place that respects your wishes and does not come with a list of must have vendors, extra prices for silly things, etc. Not to mention it’s a beautiful beautiful venue and so affordable. We are so thankful for cottonwood and their team for making our wedding so amazing. Highly recommend!

The owners are incredibly kind and it was an honor be allowed onto their property to get married.

re weekend! Amanda is quick to respond to all questions via email, Cheryl put so much work into the small details of the venue and Tom is just a joy to work with and knows the ins and outs of everything of course. My husband and I fell in love the minute we drove in and we booked that same day. Our family who also joined us the Friday before the wedding for the rehearsal had so much fun in the pool. Our guest loved the venue and even got the chance to feed Spirit the horse who is so kind. I would highly recommend this venue to all brides looking for a spacious, comfortable and beautiful wedding. The pictures will totally be worth it!

tely upon asking, from us unable to figure out how to turn on the gas on the BBQ for the rehearsal dinner, to realizing there were no towels in the Groomsman's suite. All we had to do was ask! The setting was beautiful and there was a ton of parking. I do admit my daughter did all the planning and organizing so I got to see it the first time showing up for the rehearsal. Gorgeous setting, beautiful sunset, Friendly horse "Spirit", who even gives out kisses! We just couldn't be happier and I highly recommend this venue!

I truly cannot say enough great things!

self is absolutely breath taking and everyone at my wedding raved about how gorgeous it was. This venue does require you to have a day of coordinator which was the best because on my wedding day I was able to solely focus on my husband and enjoying the day. Any hiccups went through my coordinator. I literally didn’t know any of any of the hiccups that had happened until after the wedding. So it made my day that more magical! I can’t thank Cottonwood Farms enough for the most memorable and magical day of my life! I highly suggest this venue.

day night after the rehearsal dinner and loved having the option of staying on site. Tom was always available via text in the weeks leading up to the wedding for random questions I had. We had so many guests tell us how beautiful the venue was. I loved the flexibility we were given to bring in our own vendors and truly make the day our own. I would definitely recommend hiring a shuttle for transportation because the venue is pretty remote. It worked well for us. Overall you will not be disappointed if you book with Tom and Cheryl!

d at Cottonwood farms and decided that day it was going to be where we would have our magical day. We spoke with Tom and Cheryl who were so welcoming and nice and made us feel at home. When we had to leave to Texas , anytime we had a question they answered us right away. We visited a couple times during the year when we came to visit California and every time we came we fell more in love with the place. Tom was always working on the place to add more additional features to the place. We were excited about the new dance floor and were amazed on how he built everything himself. The day we arrived on Friday to start our rehearsal and set everything up we were welcomed with open arms and like family. Tom and Cheryl were so helpful and kind about everything no matter the question or need. Tom made sure everything was set up the way I wanted. We started our rehearsal dinner and it was perfect by the pool. The bar area and having unlimited ice was awesome. I loved the wine barrels for tables and the scenery of the farm around us. Saturday came along and no matter the need it was fulfilled and helpful. My day at the farm was more then amazing it was enchanting and beautiful. I was in awe of my sunset pictures taken in the hills. The farm where we had our tables to eat dinner was so amazing and beautiful. The set up for everything fit perfectly at cottonwood farms. We got these lovely cards from Tom and Cheryl when we arrived as well which was so sweet. Man our suites for us to stay were so nice and what a great price for everything we got. I can’t say enough about how great everything was . I wish everyone as the chance to have such an amazing wedding like I did. Everything was perfect and that was with the help of everyone involved including Tom and Cheryl.

The venue itself is so beautiful. We used the bridal suite & groom's quarters to get ready in & it was spacious and convenient. The owners are a little difficult to work with, especially if you use their wedding coordinator. Communication alway...
s went through the coordinator, even when it was questions for the owners. I would ask the owner, Tom, directly & he would only answer through the coordinator. It was extremely frustrating for myself & the coordinator. The contract did not include all the details, for example, the owner changed the seating in the grass to only benches, but we agreed on chairs. We had elderly & pregnant guests who could not sit on a bench & we had to fight the owner on this (the week of the wedding mind you). We ended up paying extra for the chairs AND to have the chairs moved from ceremony site to reception site. Another thing that was not included in the details of the contract was that we were responsible for cleaning ALL the dishes & leaving the bridal suite & groom's quarters SPOTLESS or we would be charged. It was no issue to leave it how we left it, but we were not told ahead of time so our parents & bridal party had to rush to clean everything last minute. While they were cleaning, the owners shut off all the lights. Communication was very poor with the owners, despite my best efforts. We loved the venue, but would not recommend due to the poor communication of the owners. If you decide to book, clarify ALL details & verify that it is written in the contract!!!

My wife Vidya and I just had our wedding at Cottonwood Farms yesterday, and even a perfect score for owners Cheryl and Tom doesn't feel like enough. Vidya had a vision of a "modern country" theme for our day, and Cottonwood fit the bill in ever...
y way. The property is astoundingly beautiful and serene, and you can take a short golf cart ride to the nearby hills for jaw-dropping views of the sunset and the surrounding valley.
Since there are onsite overnight accommodations for both sides of the bridal party, you can pay a bit extra to have the venue for the entire weekend. We took this option and it was worth every penny. Not only were we extremely comfortable, but having the extra time for setup and tear-down was greatly appreciated.
Both spaces for either side of the bridal party are perfectly themed. The women have salon chairs and mirrors for getting ready, while the men can lounge at the poker table or watch Direct TV. Both suites are equipped with full kitchens, and you can enjoy your morning coffee on country-style porches before your big day. We were also treated to farm fresh eggs in the refrigerator – perfect for a wedding day breakfast!
Cheryl and Tom were incredible throughout the entire process, and eventually came to feel like an aunt and uncle that you would want to visit in the countryside. We had multiple challenges leading up to our wedding day, including a heavy thunderstorm the night before that required a complete rearrangement of our table setup, as well as an emergency need for a wedding coordinator. Tom and Cheryl answered with calm flexibility and work ethic that was a sight to behold.
Our day ended up being absolutely incredible. One part of our ceremony included a prayer for my wife's late father. Spirit, the horse on the property, "joined" our ceremony with a resounding "neigh" when Vidya's father's name was mentioned. There were chills and laughter all around during this unforgettable moment!
Simply put, you should VERY seriously consider having your wedding at Cottonwood Farms. Everything about the venue Tom and Cheryl have built (and constantly work to improve) is charming. Their passion for making you feel like royalty is tangible. We loved every minute of our experience, and are already looking for excuses to visit again!

The whole weekend felt so organized and relaxed, Cottonwood Farms went out of their way to accommodate us and the staff couldn't be more helpful and kind.
