Weddings on the Ranch

married coupleOn 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.

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

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”

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 sanitation.

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.
