If you're looking for a venue that feels like an elegant, dream-like version of a backyard with sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean and you like working with the most honest and kind people in the wedding industry, BOOK THIS VENUE IMMEDIATELY.
I am still in awe of how wonderful my wedding was and it was all because of the hard work of Jill, Sparky, and Cathy at Rancho del Cielo. I am not one to usually write reviews, but I had such a fantastic experience planning my wedding start to finish that I felt compelled to share. I combed through all of the venues in the Los Angeles/Malibu area that offered an outdoor venue with ocean views and found this gem offered everything my fiance and I were looking for. We could not have been luckier to find this venue and many of the 100 guests at our wedding have been telling us that this was one of the best weddings they have ever attended.
For context, I decided to plan this wedding from across the country and I only reserved 1 weekend to come out to Malibu to meet with Cathy and Jill prior to the wedding. We decided to do the all-inclusive Cielo package over the a-la-carte wedding and it was one of the best decisions we made. Here's why:
1) All of the vendors are amazing. Initially, I felt apprehensive about not being able to pick my own caterer, florist, rentals or DJ, but not having to deal with choosing/coordinating vendors was a big weight off of my shoulders (especially since I was planning from across the country and was not available locally for tastings). In addition, Jill and Cathy have only selected wonderful vendors to work with, all of whom are professional, excellent at what they do, and honest.
2)Jill & Cathy. They are phenomenal women and an absolute joy to work with. They were both prompt in replying to any question I had and helped me immensely with decor, making gorgeous signs, and putting it all together on the day of, all with a smile and a great sense of humor. I'm out of room, so just do it!

Rancho del Cielo is magical!!! The lovely owners were gracious, welcoming, responsive, and attentive throughout the wedding planning process. They were generous in allowing us to do several site visits with vendors for planning. Every time we saw them they were smiling and kind. But how could they not be- they LIVE at this amazing, gorgeous hilltop site. I've never seen another view quite like it in all of Malibu. We decided to skip the chuppah/arch for our ceremony decor and instead opted to let the splendor of the sky and ocean be the backdrop for our eternal vows. This place is breath-taking. Our guests were delighted with the abundance of sweet backdrops for selfies and photoshoots. Do note- if you plan to have a large event, pay attention to how many cars can be accommodated for parking on site before another lot needs to be rented. And make sure you're ok with turning off the music early on a Sunday night. Oh yeah, and no live music- has to be a DJ. It was SO SO worth it. We had the time of our lives :-)

We recently had our wedding at Rancho Del Cielo in July. We originally started our planning process with Avesta, but she no longer with Rancho Del Cielo and they now have new staff, Kim, Cathy and Jake who are all very easy to work with and definitely get the job done! The entire planning process is great! When visiting their home, expect to be greeted with ear to ear smiles, espresso and biscotti’s and an adorable dog, Hoover. Jill was so happy when discussing the plans for our wedding and makes you feel like an old friend. Everyone truly made us feel like family and like they really cared about our day. Everything was handled with ease and turned out great the day of!

We opted for their Celeste package because we had a wedding of under 75 guests. This was perfect because it came with the tables, linens, floral, DJ, caterers, etc. Everyone they work with is very talented! On our day, when our guests arrived, everyone was amazed with the view and many said it was the best wedding they had ever been to! This venue is so quaint, vintage, and eclectic. If I could do it all over again, I would in a heartbeat!

Thank again to everyone at Rancho Del Cielo who made our day a dream. They are memories we will cherish for a lifetime!

The owners Jill and Sparky make you feel like part of the family. The setting is so intimate and breathtakingly beautiful. Everyone at the wedding commented that it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever attended... AND IT DIDNT BREAK THE BANK!

I simply can't imagine getting married anywhere else in the world. My now husband and I almost didn't visit Rancho because of some negative reviews, and boy were we glad we ignored them! The owner, Jill, and the site manager, Avesta, were AMAZING. They are incredibly friendly and welcoming and immediately made us feel like family. The location is STUNNING with breathtaking views. Our guests were freaking out over the venue, and even commented on how attentive Avesta was to each of our guests! If I had to do it all over again I would pick Rancho del Cielo in a heartbeat. It is a magical, gorgeous place, and it was an honor to be married there.

I got married at Rancho Del Cielo in August 2006 and it was amazing. You cannot beat this venue for an outdoor wedding. The views are amazing, the owners are the sweetest people ever and Avesta helped me so much. I am so happy I chose this venue. I was able to really pick and choose how I wanted everything to look. Make sure to check it out if you are thinking of getting married in Malibu.

I wanted an outdoor venue that represented Southern California living at its best. I was also looking for a place that was unique and a space that was private so we wouldn't have to run into another wedding. Rancho del Cielo had everything I was looking for. The owners, Jill and Sparky, are so gracious and Avesta, the site coordinator has RDC weddings down pat. Echoing earlier reviews, yes, it's more expensive because you have to bring everything in. Yes, they have certain vendors and requirements for you to follow. For good reason. And it's worth it. The views are breathtaking and stop you in your tracks. It's a gorgeous, charming place by day and transforms into a magical space at night. Our guests couldn't stop talking about how beautiful the place was. Our wedding was such a special day and RDC provided a gorgeous backdrop.
