The rustic ranch charm of Old California can be found in abundance at Zaca Creek Ranch, a private estate with over a thousand acres featuring low lying creeks, picturesque oaks, grassy hills, and views of the surrounding mountains. Brides who prepare for their special day in the residence have stunning views through any window overlooking the ranch with its native plants, sweeping vista views, and unspoiled pastureland. Tie the knot on the expansive grassy lawn and celebrate with guests near the barn with plenty of space for live entertainment and dining.  Situated in the scenic Santa Ynez Valley just forty minutes from Santa Barbara, this alluring venue is perfect for romantic country weddings under the stars. 

[  Accommodations  ]

An event at Zaca Creek Ranch is like no other. You will experience a retreat to cowboy country, complete with rustic ranch charm and touches of sumptuous chic. The gorgeous residence with wood-beamed ceilings and converted barn are classy and accommodating. The large open spaces provide the classic ranchero California backdrop for any mood you wish to create with all the special touches you arrange for furniture rentals, linens, and lighting. There are two covered areas on either side of the barn as well as a large outdoor entertainment area with campfire pit, picnic tables, and majestic oaks. Arrangements for more formal indoor dining are also available. You may have your choice of licensed caterers and bartenders, though we can also provide you our trusted list of local vendors.

Zaca Creek Ranch is one of the most beautiful places in the world.  I am so glad that we made that choice for our wedding day. All our guests told us what a wonderful experience it was.

Since we were able to control all the vendors and rentals, nearly everyone we hired was a friend or referred by a friend, which really added to the intimacy of our wedding, and helped us keep the budget under control. This was our wedding and we wanted to be able to do it our way. The barn and residence are absolutely gorgeous and I wouldn’t have changed a thing about the day.
