What distinguishes your venue?

Greengate Ranch & Vineyard is really a wedding weekend retreat - most of our couples arrive Thursday or Friday with friends and family, enjoy the homes and property through out the weekend with a rehearsal dinner and celebration the night before their wedding day followed by a beautiful ceremony and reception, then a great after party up at the Ranch House and sometimes even a send off brunch on Sunday morning.  It is the perfect approach for couples coming from out of the area to bring their nearest and dearest with them to enjoy a whole weekend of all that the Central Coast of California has to offer.

 

Where are receptions held?

There are several areas that are appropriate for receptions on the vast property.  Most often, our Vintage Wood Barn is the choice for dinner, a much larger group can fit in our courtyard right outside the barn as well as the many lush lawn areas.  One of the really nice things here, is that we have a wonderful prep kitchen area for your cater to service and stage your reception dinner which allows for more catering options from casual BBQ to full on plated dinner service.

 

What is the capacity of your reception location?

Reception capacity ranges from 50 to 600 depending on where on the property you hold your reception.  Our Vintage Wood Barn can accommodate up to 200 guests for dinner and the courtyard area outside can accommodate up to 400.  If we add on the Grand Lawn area, an additional 200 guests can be situated for a large celebration.

 

Do you have space for doing a ceremony? Where do ceremonies usually take place?

We have several areas for ceremonies on property.  The Grand Lawn beside the Vintage Wood Barn is accented with our old walnut tree as the focal point.  The Pond area is serene and features a view of the vineyard and the lower terraced lawn of the Ranch House features vast views of the mountains and vineyards.

 

What are your dinner prices for a sit-down and buffet?

We do not provide catering on site, but do share our list of Preferred Vendors to get you headed in the right direction.  Pricing for various service options are easily acquired by contacting each catering vendor.

 

What is the rental cost?

Our weekend Signature Package starts at $17,400 which includes two nights' accommodations in both of our luxurious homes on site.  The Ranch House has 6 kingsize bedrooms and 7 bathrooms, The Carriage House has 3 queen size bedrooms and two bathrooms.  A third home will be coming in the summer of 2015 which will also have three bedrooms and three bathrooms.  The third home will be priced separately, pending completion.

 

Am I required to use your food, beverages, and serving attendants?

Yes, we do require that food and alcohol is attended by service people. You can bring your own alcohol on site though and we do not have a corkage fee.

 

What is your cake cutting fee?

We have no cake cutting fee.

 

What is your closing time?

Our receptions end at 10 pm due to the San Luis Obispo County noise ordinance requiring that all amplified music be off at 10 pm.  The Ranch House does serve as a great place for an after party following the end of the reception for your nearest and dearest.

 

Is there adequate parking available?

We have adequate parking for up to 500 cars.

 

Do you have a PA system?

We do not provide any sound systems, but do have a list of recommended DJ and sound companies that we can share with you.

 

Do you have overnight accommodations?

We have two beautiful homes on site that have been designed with wedding weekends in mind.  The accommodations are ranch chic with luxurious finishes and decor throughout.

 

TESTIMONIALS

"Ryan and I just wanted to say thank to Greengate Ranch and it's staff for not only making our big day special but our entire wedding weekend! The cottage house was the cherry on top to an already truly awesome venue! The house was beautiful, relaxing and so much fun! It was really cool to be able to sit on the front porch or just glance out the window and see the barn as it was being transformed for our special day. On the actual day of our wedding the Greengate staff made us feel sooooo special; you guys truly went above and beyond and we can't thank you enough! We honestly could not have picked a better place for our special day!!! We look forward to coming back and celebrating anniversaries for many years to come! Thank you again for helping make our big day such a special and memorable experience!" Ryan & Naomi - July 2014

"Greengate Ranch and Vineyard is truly a dream location. It is located in the most gorgeous valley in the Central Coast and has 360 views. Our guests were blown away by how beautiful it was everywhere you looked and our pictures are incredible! My husband and I am so grateful to the ranch for taking such good care of us and for how helpful they were throughout the whole wedding planning process. Kelsey really went above and beyond for us -- especially the weekend of our wedding as she was basically on-call the whole time to help with anything we needed. The staff takes such great care of the whole property and there was really not even a leaf out of place!

We had our ceremony in the backyard of the Ranch House with it's breathtaking views. It really set the tone for the whole wedding. And of course, we had our Reception in the Vintage Barn, which not only has so much character, but it was built to be functional for a wedding. When my husband and I were touring barn venues, we found that a lot of them lacked the necessities -- accessable power, solid ground, lighting, bathrooms, kitchen, etc -- but Greengate's Vintage Barn has all the charm of an old barn but the functionality of hotel venue.

And to top it all off, the 2 houses on the property are available for rent, so our whole family was able to stay on the property with us and we were able to get ready there so we had so much freedom. We got to have a full wedding weekend with all of our friends and family who traveled there."  Emily & Matt - August 2014
