"What a beautiful day it was, and certainly one which shall remain at the top of our list as a day to remember forever." - Letter

Ensuring your day is as perfect as you dreamed.

As you prepare for the most memorable day of your life, decisions abound. Guest lists. Music. Menus. One simple choice you can make to ensure a truly flawless wedding 
is Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa. Whether you're having an intimate event for 10 people or a grand celebration for 250, the 45 acres at Rancho Valencia create an elegant and remarkable setting for unforgettable year-round weddings.

Intimate courtyards privately tucked away, trickling fountains, pristine lawns, dramatic views, and award-winning cuisine set the stage for your perfect wedding celebration. And your dedicated wedding specialist will work closely with you so that every detail is anticipated and every luxury arranged - from the planning and reception to hot air balloon landings and a horse-and-carriage sendoff. And, after the celebration, you and your guests can easily escape to the comfort and relaxation of our spacious casitas.
