I wanted to take some time to write about Beltane Ranch, which is a wedding venue located in Sonoma, California. I recently photographed a romantic wedding there and wanted to express how much I loved this venue! To see more of this wedding, which was also featured on Grey Likes Weddings, you can see it here.
Tucked away, yet still in the heart of Sonoma, Beltane Ranch is the epitome of rustic and intimate. Golden sunsets, a charming cottage, surrounded by vineyards and not to mention the historic genre of this property, quite possibly, has a little something for everyone.
A historic working ranch, Beltane Ranch offers stunning ceremony views, and can accommodate seating for up to 150 guests on the lawn and garden. If you are thinking about an elopement, Beltane is also an excellent choice, as it offers the intimacy and quiet solitude of the surrounding property.
Bobbie Jean and Alan, my couple who wed here, said “some of the most memorable parts of the day was the morning we said ‘I do’ which included breakfast and feeding the properties horses”. Ahh so dreamy!
The yellow, gingerbread-trimmed lodge also features five rooms and a two-story wraparound porch. Stay the night, stay the week, it’s a beautiful base location when visiting Sonoma wine country.
From a photographer’s perspective, the photo-ops are boundless. There are so many “great” locations for wedding photos. The picturesque setting is breathtaking and one to be “absorbed” with all of it’s natural beauty!
