We chose Santa Fe River Ranch as our venue for many reasons. One thing I looked for when choosing a venue was the “whole package”. We were able to get into the venue Friday morning and we had it all the way until noon Sunday. This was very convenient for dropping things off, setting up for the rehearsal dinner ( which we were able to have there at their adorable rustic house ), and picking everything up the following day rather than having to clean up the night of. It was truly the whole package. My girls and I were able to spend the night Friday after the rehearsal at the “cottage” and it truly made the experience. Waking up at the venue, with all of my closest friends, was the perfect way to start the day and added to the excitement. The location is beautiful. If you are wanting the rustic but elegant barn feel, this is the perfect place. I have included pictures of their beautiful scenery, the oak tree we got married in front of, and the azaleas which were bloomed just in time for our wedding date (march 13th) and made for beautiful photos! The owners themselves, along with their staff, went above and beyond to tend to our needs and accommodate us. They are directly involved during your time there and do everything possible to make your day go smoothly. We used their on-site coordinator, Susan, and she was amazing. I never felt rushed or stressed out. The day flowed perfectly start to finish. I could not have asked for a more perfect wedding day, and I owe a lot of that to this wonderful venue. I highly recommend them!
