Weddings on the Ranch
On your special day,
Ride off into the sunset
With the one you love…
Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!
At Yolo Land & Cattle Co., we can help turn an already
special day into one you’ll always cherish. Our secluded, working
cattle ranch offers numerous locations for adventurous couples willing
to try something off the beaten path. A cattle ranch may not be the
first choice for folks who prefer black tie extravagance, but it
presents a perfect backdrop when a western theme is desired. Our ranch
is rustic and rural, but we have hosted several elegant events and
weddings. Each wedding has been a positive, memorable experience for
the bride and groom. Above all else, we offer a scenic, relaxing and
peaceful setting for you and your guests.
Over the last few years,
our family has worked diligently to
improve the general appearance of our headquarters, corrals, and
landscape. Numerous ongoing environmental restoration projects have
also enhanced the ranch aesthetics. One of the benefits of having your
wedding at our ranch is the availability of multiple sites, so you can
have your wedding and reception at one location.
We offer three “developed” sites for your wedding, but on our
property, you are only bound by your imagination:
The Headquarters Area
Our headquarters area
outdoor seating for over 100 people
under shade trees. With additional tent rentals, we have hosted as many
as 400 at this facility. About 30- 40 people can be comfortably seated
inside the headquarters building. We offer two restrooms for
moderate sized events (up
to 75 people), and additional portable restrooms can be rented for
larger groups. Inside the headquarters we have kitchen
facilities available for
caterers to use. The headquarters floor is concrete, and the
outside area is
gravel and decomposed granite. In addition, we have a large lawn and
horse shoe pit for recreation or tent placement. Parking is plentiful
at this site. With a gravel base in the parking lot, this site is
best suited for events on days when the weather might be inclement.
The “Red Barn”
Built in the early 1900’s, our vintage hay
barn provides a
secluded, ambient setting for weddings. You will hear
no sirens here to interrupt your ceremony, only a gobble of a wild
turkey, or the soft call of a dove.
Guests have decorated the
barn in a variety of ways to suit their tastes. The barn is currently
amenity free, except for running water.
We have small generators available for rent, but for larger events,
guests may need to rent a diesel generator for lighting or other
electrical needs. Guests will also need to rent portable toilets for
Surrounded by grand old oak trees, and situated next to a
seasonal picturesque creek, the tranquility of this setting is
unmatched in Yolo County. Adjacent to the barn is a magnificent oak
tree that has
provided a backdrop for numerous wedding ceremonies.
Parking is virtually unlimited at this location, due to its
proximity to open fields. We generally construct a smooth dirt parking
lot to match the needs of each wedding.
The Clear Lake Pond
Located near the middle of our ranch, this restored habitat
site provides a beautiful backdrop for a more intimate wedding
ceremony. The pond features a covered dock which hosts a large flock of
resident cliff swallows.
Due to the remoteness of this site, accessibility may be
difficult for large crowds at this time.
