With the help of their staff, you’ll discover your dream ceremony and reception location in one (or more!) of their five unique spaces - The Rustic Barn, The Terrace Lawn, The Ceremony Pond, The Verandah, and The Tree House - each of which offers a combination of stunning views and hand-crafted artistry. Think of Pepper Tree Ranch as the perfect canvas to create a day that’s unforgettable.
First settled 13,000 years ago, this stunning venue celebrates a rich history. In 1841, the land was sold as a result of a land grant, and the property continued to grow as an agricultural hub before becoming a viticulture based area. Edna Valley is well-known for its Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and became an official American Viticultural Area in 1982.
The pepper trees dotting the property are native to the Peruvian Andes. The legend surrounding these trees is that they started in California when a sea captain repaid the Spanish missions with seeds after wandering the area. Long prized by the Spanish, the wood is used in saddle-making as well as providing shade and undeniable beauty. With antiseptic and antibacterial properties, this health symbol expresses the desire for every guest at the ranch to live in prosperity and happiness.
Lovely and romantic, the historic barn at Pepper Tree Ranch is a beautiful spot to say your vows as well as the perfect setting for guests to dance the night away. The rustic vibe of the venue mixed with modern embellishments and twinkling outdoor lights create an unbelievably magical feeling, an exquisite place to have your ceremony or reception. It's impossible to go wrong with this charming venue.
The Terrace Lawn at the venue extends far into the California skies, with its delicate floral accents and dynamic lush greens serving as the picture-perfect background for your ceremony. With dining accommodations for up to 500 of your guests, the spacious lawn ensures absolute comfort while showcasing the 70 acres of the ranch.
The covered outdoor area of The Verandah boasts exquisite views of the Santa Lucia Mountains as well as the serene valleys and hills. This beautiful event space is ideal for any part of your wedding, from the ceremony, cocktail hour, or rehearsal dinner. Let the ever-present California nature be your inspiration for this elegant space.
Surrounded by endless greenery and tall grasses, The Pond at Pepper Tree Ranch is a flawless site for a romantic outdoor ceremony or wedding party photos. With stunning mountain views and the calm water, The Pond gives you the best of both worlds.
Both historic and simply beautiful, Pepper Tree Ranch is the loveliest venue for you to say "I do" and toast to your big day.
