We were married here in February, and I can honestly say that Gardener Ranch is a magical place. We got lucky with perfect 70 degree weather, the property was stunning, and everyone had a blast. Heather was great to work with and very responsive to our needs. Our guests enjoyed staying in the guest houses. We loved being there for the weekend and wanted to move in!

Gardener Ranch made our wedding the most fabulous event. Dana was there for us every step of the way, she guided us through all the large and small things to take care of before, during, and after the event. They actually went above and beyond what was contracted or expected. I would recommend this venue for any type of large event. 5 stars all the way.

Gardener Ranch was an absolute dream of a venue. Touring the venue was as if they had thought of everything! The bridal suite was the hook line and sinker for us! My mother "just saw me in my wedding dress" there. Every aspect to Gardener, from the the beautifully decorated and accomodating on-site housing to the abundance of relaxing entertaining space were exactly what we were looking for! The ability to simply step into a gorgeous natural environment and to have the ceremony, reception and accommodations just steps away from each other takes away so much of the unnecessary logistics and allows you to absolutely enjoy the entire wedding weekend. This is what makes this such a magical place and a venue above all else. Heather best represented Gardener through her professionalism, kindness, and willingness to go above and beyond to make sure the family and the bride and groom enjoyed themselves. She was able to "save the day" for me in one occasion and it truly meant the world to me! Gardener Ranch was ever so flexible and accommodating when it came to venue visits. I very much enjoyed working with Heather to create the best possible weekend for our wedding. Our family and friends were blown away by the venue and how beautiful it was. Pulling away my newlywed husband said, "We will be back for our 50th wedding anniversary"!

My wife and I got married at Gardener Ranch in August 2016 and the venue is everything we could ever imagine in a venue. We scoured venue options up and down California for places that could provide on-site lodging for weekend wedding without feeling like a campground. We also wanted the freedom to fully select the vendor team we wanted (including providing our own alcohol). Gardener is one of the only places that met these criteria, but it’s also so much more. The venue totally made our wedding. All of our guests loved the property and it was a completely perfect location to host a weekend full of events. The venue is absolutely gorgeous, and has a huge variety of spaces to host events. We did a welcome barbecue in the Oaklands, our Ceremony in the Woodlands, our reception in the Grasslands, dancing in the Clubhouse, a brunch poolside in the Breakfast Room, and had 45 guests staying a 5-minute walk from all of it.

During our wedding planning process, the Gardener staff was going through a transition period and some of their policies changed. This caused a small period of confusion for us on their catering rules & fees, but everything was ironed out and super smooth by the time of our wedding. We highly recommend working with a wedding coordinator if you book Gardener Ranch, as it’s a large property with so many aspects to consider. We worked with Coastside Couture, and we highly recommend them if you book Gardener - see our separate review of our experience working with them: http://www.yelp.com/biz/coastside-couture-santa-cruz-2?hrid=iGV9UMZ7NRTRkEFS5fDAfA.

Gardener Ranch as a property sells itself. We knew it was exactly what we were looking for the minute we walked on property. Go visit for yourself if you are considering a wedding weekend in the Carmel-area. It is as gorgeous as the pictures make it out to be and access to the entire property for the whole weekend will ensure that you have the most memorable wedding you can imagine.

Our son's wedding was held at Gardener Ranch (GR) in June. We held all four events on the Ranch: Rehearsal Dinner, Meet and Greet, Wedding and Reception and Brunch. The grounds are amazing and the service outstanding. Heather (GR property manager) was almost as excited about our wedding as our family was. She held our hands all the way through the process and helped us make good choices. She went out of her way to help us make the weekend a memorable one for all. The married couple say "it was the best weekends of their lives so far." Truly Gardener Ranch is a magical location for a wedding and we are thrilled that our son and our new daughter-in-law were lucky enough to have been married in this wonderful site.

Gardener Ranch is an absolutely stunning place to host your wedding weekend! All of our family and friends had a fabulous time. As with any new venue there are things that need to be improved, but I believe that will come with time. Being able to have friends and family stay on the property is ideal and makes for a really fun weekend!
