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.

Kim Rico is the venue manager. She is nice, creative, and very flexible- this makes the whole process that much easier.
This place is gorgeous. You have an indoor/outdoor option along with so many options for the ceremony. The venue is surrounded by orange groves. There are restrooms so you don't have to deal with porta potties. You can choose your own cateter, rental company etc. with no extra fees.
We loved this place!

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.
