The venue offers several stunning options for ceremony sites. The sites range from $1500 – $5000 which includes chairs, microphone and speaker, water station, gift and guestbook tables and one night stay in a courtyard hotel room.
There are also many beautiful sites perfect for bride and groom and wedding party photos.
There are several reception spaces available with spaces ranging from 50 person capacity up to 200 person capacity. Dinner reception packages starts from $80.00 per person up to $150.00 per person.

We love to plan weddings that show off the personality of the bride and groom. We found the following unique place setting ideas that have inspired us. These place settings give guests a feel for the type of wedding they are attending. We hope you find one that you like and may possibly use at your own wedding.
We attended the Grand Opening and Bridal Show at Oak Canyon Ranch in Agoura Hills. This venue is perfect for you if you are planning a rustic, barn/ranch style and outdoor wedding. This gorgeous site is 48 acres and located in the Santa Monica mountains. The maximum capacity for an outdoor ceremony and reception is 400. The rental fee ranges from $4000 – $7000 and includes 12 hours of event time including set up and strike. Catering is also provided on site. Check out some of the photos we took of the venue.

One of the key components to a wedding is the food selection. Whether you are offering a sit down dinner with courses, food stations or buffet, you can add your own personal finishing touch by using an unique way of displaying the menu. We have selected some fun and unique wedding menu ideas for those looking for some inspiration.
