I was lucky enough to celebrate my wedding last year at The Ranch! Everyone at The Ranch was GREAT! They truly made my wedding a dream come true.
The Ranch far exceeded my expectations. The venue, ambiance, service, and food made our wedding day the BEST day of our lives. We had a smaller wedding with 75 people. We rented the Hospitality Room and chose to do our ceremony and dinner in the same room. There was a hard wood floor section built into the middle of the room, so it made it easy to accommodate everything from our ceremony to dancing! The kitchenette in the corner was perfect for the bar area. We played our own music since there was an auxiliary chord to plug in a computer or phone. Off the Hospitality Room was a fantastic balcony where we finished the evening by watching the fireworks over Disneyland. It was magical! After the fireworks, our crew went to The Saloon and danced the night away! Since we are West Coast Swing dancers, we appreciated the classy dance venue they run. We love food and wanted to have amazing food at our wedding. This was some of the best food I've ever had in my life. They made the whole process easy since the food was part of the package. We were also able to have a modest open bar which then switched to a cash bar mid-way through the night. It was very affordable compared to many of the other venues we looked at in Anaheim. One of the best parts of the day was getting ready in the Bridal Suite at the venue. It was GORGEOUS! The giant mirror made it fun for my bridesmaids and I to get ready in front of. It was great to be around the buzz of the venue, yet secluded and hidden away. A little oasis of happiness. There was another room for the groom and groomsmen to get ready in as well. We were all very well taken care of, more than anticipated or expected! Gina and her team were amazing to work with and helped with every request, no matter how small or silly it seemed. They were professional, understanding, kind, and easy to communicate with. I'm thrilled we chose to celebrate our happiness and love at The Ranch. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat! The best part is, we can go back anytime and enjoy the food in the main restaurant!
