Historic Seven Sycamores Ranch offers a blend of the natural beauty of lush gardens and sprawling orange groves with meticulous attention to details. The gardens provide the perfect, relaxed ambiance for your guests—making your special wedding day very special indeed. A beautiful white arbor on the raised pergola embraces the wedding party as a glorious altar among the colorful greenery. The entire grounds transforms into a lush and living theater, with all eyes focused on the bride and groom. Two large arbors of native plants provide pleasant shade and dancing glimmers of sunlight for your reception or dinner. Guests also enjoy strolling the landscaped gardens with many labeled native flowers and plants, and pausing to listen to the sounds of dancing water in the fountains. We are also happy to introduce a new indoor wedding and event space. Formerly a working shop for over 40 years, it has been transformed into a “Vintage Country Barn”. Lined with spectacular glass windows, and gorgeous cedar on the walls, it makes for an impressive setting for any kind of event, from formal black tie or casual country. Skylights over one end give the perfect lighting to an indoor ceremony. The Glass Barn will be available year around, and will has a smaller outdoor garden available for ceremonies, weather permitting. Our professional wedding staff works to assist the bride and groom in selecting from our approved list of licensed caterers and other professionals, and seeing that all necessary needs are met.

Don't be fooled by the beauty of this venue!!!!! Yes it is pretty but that is the only nice thing I can say about this place. I booked the venue in July of 2013 and part way through the year I was contacted and told that the owner fired the wedding coordinator and I was forced to sign a new contract. They did offer to give my deposit back but no other venue was available in our wedding day and Save the Dates had already been ordered. Part of that new contract was asking us to spend even more than we signed up for. The new wedding coordinator was extremely rude and she smiled while I was tearful and upset about the situation. A month before my wedding I went to the venue for a walk through and everything was fine. I went for a final walk through a couple of weeks before the event and they had added a huge barn wall in the pavilion area that I intended on using Bc I had 250 guests. No one informed my about the changes and even though I was crying and angry the wedding coordinator and owner did nothing to help or ease the situation. They were extremely rude. The worst thing I did was have my wedding here and after booking both sides to the venue and spending a large amount of money the wedding coordinator Kim did not even help with the wedding, setup or even leave her office. I'm just glad I never have to work with them again!

Historic Seven Sycamores Ranch responded with the following comments:

Thank you for your honest review. When clients sign a contract we can’t guarantee that our venue will look the same or have same staff when their wedding day arrives. When changes occur, our first priority is to communicate with our clients. If they’re unhappy with a change, we gladly work to find a solution.

In January, we hired a new coordinator and reviewed our contracts. We made some revisions and clarifications and asked each client to sign a new contract (we didn’t force them and offered a full refund if they didn’t wish to do so). These changes included adding an event insurance requirement. This client didn’t feel that the additional cost of the insurance would fit in her budget, so we offered her a small refund to cover the added expense.
We’ve never offered day-of coordination or set up, other than tables and chairs. We set linens out (on the hanger, still in the bag) on the tables, but it’s up to the client to set them up. On the wedding day, we have a venue coordinator here for 8 hours to answer questions, direct vendors if needed, and provide tools (i.e. a ladder). Staff is NOT responsible for linen placement, table top set up, or any other décor. This is communicated in our contract and during the contract signing.

There’s a short time period, usually in July and early August, when we can do major projects. As soon as we knew construction was going to occur (late-July), we worked quickly to notify each of our clients via phone, email and text. We also held an open house so they could see the changes and ask questions. For anyone that’s been unhappy with the remodel, we’ve done everything we can to ease their minds and make them happy so can have a memorable day.

Cecilia: We are truly sorry, if at any point, you felt that we were rude, didn’t meet your expectations, or didn’t communicate with you. We feel we did everything we could to make your experience and wedding day as enjoyable as possible. We wish you and Ryan all the best!

We had our wedding here on June 7, 2014 and everything turned out wonderful. This venue is absolutly gorgeous! We loved having it out in the country surrounded by orange orchards. Work with Kim there even planner was great. She really helped us a lot and answered all of our questions quickly. She even let us use some props from another wedding that she done. We loved everything so much. If you are looking for a rustic venue in the central valley this is the best spot. We had both the garden and barn setting for our venue and we rented the house for my bridal party and family to get dressed.

Overall our experience with Seven Sycamores went pretty well. We rented both the Glass Barn and the Garden area for 300 hundred guest and we were really happy with how beautiful the venue is. We booked with them a little over a year of the event and seen the venue go through some changes with their staff and property renovations. Some of the changes affected their initial contract with us and we were forced to alter our plans on our big day. We were not very happy when we found, but the newly hired staff (Kim Ricco) did a great job accommodating our requests to make up for the disappointment we had in the unexpected changes. The only other problem we had was with their security staff being rude at the end of the night. Other then that, I would definitely recommend Seven Sycamores and was happy that my husband and I got to spend our special day there.

The venue manager is very helpful and approaches most queries with a 'yes' attitude, which was refreshing after hearing a lot of restrictions and 'no's from other places. The venue is growing in popularity and I would suggest they bring on additional help to keep up with the flow of business! This venue is BEAUTIFUL - we fell in love with it when we first toured it, which was in the wintertime. We got married the following autumn and it was everything we wanted in a venue. We feedback we received from our guests was that 'you feel worlds away from everything' and we agree completely. There is so much natural beauty that you don't need a lot of decorations, if you're looking for an outdoor venue. While there is a barn for indoor events, keep it mind it is a barn and has it's limitations. I would recommend the venue improve the PA system.

I looked at a TON of different venues for our wedding and knew that this was the one for me the second I walked in. It was absolutely beautiful and they were constantly working on ways to upgrade and enhance the appearance of the Ranch. Some of the things that were huge pluses for me....they had working bathrooms (not porta potties like a lot of venues I saw), and the arbor that everyone eats under had misters that cooled you down but didnt get you wet, which was awesome for my June wedding! Since they don't cater, you aren't required to do catering through them and I got to pick whoever I wanted as long as they had a license, which was nice.

Aside from the beauty of the place, another strong factor in picking this place was how easy and knowledgeable the event coordinator, Mikka, was. She was easy to get a hold of and was always quick to respond to any questions I had. She was super flexible and the rest of her team was very friendly and there to help. The day of my event a girl named Sam and the "handyman" Tim helped us out. I think Sam may have been new but she helped us with everything we needed and had zero problems! Tim was awesome and checked with me multiple times during the event to make sure everything was going the way I wanted. I was so happy to have my wedding planning process go so smoothly when it came to dealing with Seven Sycamores and will recommend them to everyone I know!

We couldn't have selected a better time of year with almost everything in bloom, the roses, irises, orange blossoms, and jasmine covering the arbors. It was beautiful for the eyes and the nose. Mikka helped us extensively over the course of our year planning, including rentals for the linens and place settings.

We loved the venue and it turned out beautiful. However, there were some concerns we felt weren’t acknowledged and/or taken care of the day of the event (cobwebs in the barn, grease on the floor, etc.). The north east corner of the building had a greasy film on the floor, which resulted in the chair covers being stained and the bride’s dress being filthy (it is at the cleaners now, waiting to see if it comes out). We also asked about the fans being turned down and were told the fans were either “off or on”…no inbetween. However, one of the guests later told us they adjusted the fan above their table, so apparently they can be adjusted. Mikka was always responsive, flexible and helpful with the event. We only used about an hour of her consultation time only because the bride was out of the area. It is really difficult to have dinner in the barn with no refrigerator, sink or way to keep food hot. Mikka was very accommodating and the use of the full house the day of the wedding was a lifesaver since we were out there the majority of the day and didn’t have time to go home and return.
In hindsight, it would have been helpful to have Mikka as a site coordinator to help with the wedding event, in terms of keeping things moving. I’m not saying she SHOULD have done that, but if that’s a service they can offer, I would pay additional for it another time. Keep in mind we are only about the third wedding in the barn so they are working out the kinks. Overall, it was awesome! It's a setting that's so fun and memorable. I'd definitely use them again or recommend to others.

Historic Seven Sycamores Ranch responded with the following comments:

Unfortunately this was a miscommunication between myself (Mikka) and the Bride/Groom. We recently added on to our venue, to add a secondary site for weddings. The couple was aware this construction was going on, and knew it would be finished at or before their wedding date. When they came for the site visit, I was out of the office in an appointment with another vendor, in another town. As soon as I got the call from the groom, I asked if I could call him back when I was out of my meeting and had figured out what had happened. Once I got back into the office, and made a few calls, I already had our employee planned to relocate (as our venue was a back up plan for them to begin with), but the groom called me back and completely canceled their wedding with us without giving me any chance to fix the situation.

After this incident, we gave *every* couple who was currently booked the opportunity to "block off" their date if they didn't feel comfortable having another group adjacent to their event, which many people took advantage of, and we were happy to honor the original contract which does state "exclusive use".

I wish this couple had given me the chance to correct the situation, which I was in the process of doing when they called and canceled. They were given a full refund, including the deposit which is generally non refundable.

We choose Seven Sycamores Glass Barn because of it's rustic look and amazingly beautiful scenery. We where not dissapointed. Mikka, the wedding cordinator for Seven Sycamores took care of every detail and was always available to calm my nerves or handle any last minute crisis. She handles everything with ease and professionalism. The cottages to stay the night in are amazing. Why would you want to get married anywhere else? Once your reception is over you walk to your cottage. In the morning we walked through the orange groves, looked at the peacocks and chickens one last time while ran lightly drizzled down on us. A perfect ending to a perfect weekend. I didn't want to leave! Hightly recommend!!

Overall I loved this venue. Even before the renovations it was gorgeous. It was natural and the flowers were in bloom. Very little decor needed. I received many compliments and would not have it any other way. The staff was the very best! Thank you Seven Sycamores Ranch!
