"Getting married at Paicines Ranch was an absolutely magical experience. From the stunning ranch landscape featuring historical buildings, silos, and rolling oak-studded hills that painted that landscapes to the charismatic, delightful, and incredibly helpful events crew (Mary is a gem), this venue has it all! To top it off, it's a working ranch tackling regenerative agriculture and they aligned with my values and eco wedding. I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful wedding and exceptional venue that went above and beyond to make my wedding unforgettable."

-Alicia

"Paicines Ranch is truly a magical venue. We knew it was the perfect place for us upon arriving, its calming and naturally beautiful. We knew we wanted to really embrace our experience and the ranch allowed us to be onsite for two days surrounded by our friends and family. We had the most amazing weekend and Mary and her husband are the best! She was so helpful throughout the entire experience and they both were so generous and kind. Thank you for everything!"

-Brittany

"This venue speaks for itself, it is absolutely gorgeous. However, once you couple it with the ease, and flexibility that Mary offers to help planning your wedding here, it makes you love it even more. I don't have words for how wonderful it is here, and how beautiful my pictures came out. The whole wedding looked like it was taken out of pinterest. I loved it, it was such a beautiful scene, from start to finish, and having only our guests, and being able to keep the privacy of it all was wonderful. This venue is a perfect outdoor/ indoor venue, the Barn with the chandeliers are amazing."

-Vanessa

"Having our wedding at Paicines Ranch was one of the best decisions we made. Our wedding was everything we wanted it to be - we wanted something outdoors, rustic, with a sense of place and history... and we wanted flexibility to do it our own way. Paicines Ranch fit the bill perfectly."

-Lindsay

"Paicines Ranch was and is a beautiful venue. I highly recommend this breathtaking ranch if you are looking for a relaxing wedding day. The scenery is amazing and pictures came out beautifully! Mary the Event Center Manager, is extremely professional, understanding, and helpful in every way. We had our dinner inside the barn and dancing outside, which gave our guest the opportunity to enjoy an inside and outside charming wedding. It is very reassuring to still hear our guests talking about their relaxing experience at our Paicines Ranch wedding."
