DIY Weddings  at THE RANCH




"My wedding was a fairy tale brought to life at the Wildernest Ranch. The venue’s beautiful open space and tree-lined property made gorgeous photo opportunities. The wedding was absolutely breathtaking from the ceremony to the reception! This property has an amazing outdoor pavilion that we used for our reception area and plenty of space was provided for our wedding party to get ready for the big day. If you are looking for an outdoor venue, look no more! Thank you, Wildernest Ranch, for making our wedding a wonderful event that our friends and family still oooh and ahhh over!"                                          ----Sarah Hargrove
