What distinguishes your venue? Share your unique attributes.
Modern/rustic aesthetic: much of the property has been custom designed and built by the owner using materials like steel, reclaimed wood, and concrete. Combined with historic structures like the Barn, Pepper Tree Ranch offers a unique setting for your one-of-a-kind event. We also have several event areas to choose from, and each offers a different look and seating capacity. It's possibly to truly customize your event here.
Where are receptions held? What is the capacity of your reception location?
We have several locations to choose from. For groups up to 60, the Tree House provides a singular reception location, with views of Edna Valley's vineyards and the Santa Lucia Mountains. The Barn can accommodate up to 250 in a historic, hand-restored building. Our Verandah is an outdoor covered space that provides both a dramatic backdrop for receptions up to 350 guests and an inclement weather back-up for ceremonies. The Terrace Lawn is a lush setting for large events and can easily accommodate several hundred people (up to 1000).
Do you have space for doing a ceremony? Where do ceremonies usually take place?
In addition to any of the locations described above, we also have a space used exclusively for ceremonies, which take place on a large deck over a pond that is set against the backdrop of the Santa Lucia Mountains.
What are your dinner prices for a sit-down and buffet?

We absolutely loved our time at Pepper Tree Ranch! Not only was the location completely amazing, but Hannah and Darren were wonderful! Hannah was always quick to respond and so accommodating to all of our wishes for our special day. Hannah was such a pleasure to work with! We visited Pepper Tree at least five or six times before the wedding, and she was present and so helpful with every visit. Hannah made us and our wedding important to her. We had multiple guests comment on how beautiful Pepper Tree Ranch is. So many were amazed that it existed in SLO, most had no idea it was out there. I have a feeling that will change as more and more people learn about this hidden gem. As locals, we were so pleasantly surprised to find a venue that was different than so many other venues in the area. The barn was beautiful and clean with cement flooring. The tree house was one of a kind and provided such a great experience for our guests. We put bistro tables in the tree house, so our guests enjoyed the view of Edna Valley during our cocktail hour. The pond made for incredible sunset pictures, along with the landscaping around the barn, tree house, and veranda. There were so many options for where to do cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing. It truly was incredible. Our bridal party got ready in the Bridal Suite, and it was perfect! Clean, spacious, and decorated beautifully. The room had tons of counter space and mirrors, perfect for the hair and make-up specialist to get all 11 women ready to go in just a few hours. The Bridal Suite also has a kitchen and bathroom attached. We had everything we needed for an entire day at Pepper Tree Ranch. My husband and I also spent our wedding night in one of the suites at the ranch. We were welcomed with a card, wine, and chocolate. Pepper Tree goes above and beyond to add all the small touches that make the day just perfect. We would recommend Pepper Tree Ranch over and over again. We were absolutely amazed!
Our experience at this venue for our wedding will be one that won't be forgotten!! Our photos from the day were breath taking. I couldn't have imagined having our wedding at any other place! What made it even better was the owners were so great and very hospitable. You won't regret choosing this venue!
