I cannot thank the entire team at RLL enough for providing the most amazing venue for our ceremony and wedding this last month. My husband Chris and I were so happy with how the entire day flowed and that is in large thanks to Julie Stoddart and her crew. My bridesmaids and I stayed at the three cottages at RLL the night before our wedding and I wish we could've stayed longer! Full kitchens/kitchenettes, living rooms, one had a huge backyard, little squirrels running around, and we woke up to the sounds of a white bengal tiger's grumble, it was so cool! Getting ready in the bridal cottage was such a treat as well, all 6 bridesmaids, my mom, my mother in law all got our hair and makeup done, blasted music, sipped on champagne, it was a blast! Now the venue itself, wow. Have I mentioned the tigers?? Because wow. I opted to have a "tiger feeding" during my cocktail hour for all guests to watch one of the trained groundskeeper feed one of the white tigers and it was EPIC. ALL of our guests were blown away and it made for such awesome pics. We also had the two macaws out talking to guests and repeating after people, that was a hoot. :) The Teatro provided the perfect space for our ceremony and I loved how our florist transformed the space with succulents and made it into our own. Walking with my Dad across that bridge was so special because it was just long enough to pause and take in everyone that was there, really special moment. Of course standing with my husband at the top of those steps and looking out at everyone was the best vantage point, we were truly lucky to have that moment together and to call THAT our wedding day was the best. Afterwards we had cocktail hour by the pond and the RLL crew transformed the teatro area into our reception. I was amazed at their speed and they are obvious professionals with attention to detail. We cut our cake back up on the teatro and then headed upstairs from 10pm-12 for more dancing. Overall a perfect venue!!

What can I say about Rancho Las Lomas except that it's just a beautiful and magical place and that's exactly why I chose this to be my wedding venue. I first worked with Kara who was lovely and always responded timely to my emails. Later on, Kara went on maternity leave and Julie took over my wedding. Julie was just as great as Kara! She was great with planning out the floor plans and always made great suggestions. If you want a venue where you don't really have to do anything because it's beautiful on its on, then come to Rancho Las Lomas!!

This was the last place out of at least six that we visited on our busy wedding venue hunting day. All throughout the day, I thought each venue I saw was nice in its own way but what I really wanted was lots of natural greenery, since I am originally from Washington state.

Once I stepped out of the car and began to walk around the expansive premises I knew there was no other place that I would want to get married. We really were getting three unique settings (Teatro for the ceremony and reception, Fountain side for the cocktail hour, and inside the Grand Salon once it got too chilly at night to keep dancing) all in the same easy to access spot.

Our wedding was in January so we may have received more attention than during the busiest part of the year and did not had have to fight the crowds to get what we wanted. This location is worth every bit and the guests loved it just as much as we did.

I had my wedding here, and it was awesome. I wanted a venue with a lush outdoor reception, and this venue provided just that (it has an indoor option too for those who prefer indoors). In the beginning I called and emailed Kara a lot, and she promptly answered all my questions. Later Julie took over, though overall I didn't really have questions for her because I had a coordinator who took care of pretty much everything for me. I'm very happy with the vendors recommended on Rancho Las Lomas's website, and their website itself gave me some good ideas for wedding planning (some cool blogs of other brides at Rancho Las Lomas online as well). There are so many great spots to take photographs, which is great because photography is very important to me. I had a lot of compliments from my guests, two of them telling me that it's one of the best weddings they've been to. A few of them even said that it made them want to own a ranch with random exotic animals as well. It can get pretty pricey because all the detail costs add up (lights, tables, etc.), but in my and my husband's opinion it's worth it and you get what you pay for. I highly recommend Rancho Las Lomas for any future brides looking for a beautiful place to marry.

Rancho Las Lomas was the wedding venue of our dreams! Everything was so beautiful on our special day. Also Julie and Kara of Rancho Las Lomas were so helpful in figuring out rentals for tables, chairs, etc and other details. We didnt have a wedding coordinator and some ideas and advice they gave us were things we didnt think of. And if I ever sent them an email, I would get a quick and professional response. Thank you Rancho for an awesome wedding!!!

The team at Rancho Las Lomas made all my wedding dreams come true! They were always going above and beyond the call of duty to help me with any questions that arose during the planning process. There is no other place to go if you want a fairytale wedding. The property is one of the most beautiful places in Orange County and again, the staff is beyond top notch. They make you feel like part of the Rancho Las Lomas family so you will feel comfortable working with them from the very beginning. It brings tears to my eyes just thinking back to my wedding day. Even if you are on a tight budget and don't have money for too many "extras" for decorations, Rancho is so beautiful without ANY decorations! Thank you Rancho Las Lomas!

My husband and I were married at Rancho Las Lomas in May! This was the last place we had looked, and knew as we pulled in that this was the place, were going to say "I, do!" We were greeted by Julie, who is so sweet! And we spoke with Kara, who is also so sweet!

The venue itself is amazing and breath taking. The grounds are beautiful, and the animals make it more beautiful! My husband and I are from the midwest/east coast. And decided to have our wedding in CA (our new home). Being from the Midwest we didn't want the traditional, hotel/country club wedding. I wanted to get married at a private estate and do a fancy wedding! He wanted to get married at the zoo! So, when we came across Rancho, we were sold! We had the best of both worlds! Not to mention they have a wonderful team of vendors to work with!

A month or so before our wedding, Kara emailed me to let me know that they had cottages we could rent, on site. I was of course interested! With that said, my husband and I were able to spend our first night as husband and wife at our wedding venue! We woke up to the sounds of the tigers roaring! It was amazing! We were also able to walk the property one last time, before leaving. It was bitter sweet. I cried, because I wanted to stay forever! I can't wait to go back and visit! Maybe they will let us go back, and have a picnic! On a side note, my girls and I were able to get ready in the cottage before the wedding!

On the day of the wedding, the venue was perfect, the weather was great, the birds were talking, and all of the animals seemed to have smiles on their faces! Our guests were blown away, by the venue, they have told us they were sold once the big wooden doors opened and they drove in. But as they kept driving it just got better and better! Each one of guests has told us, it was the best wedding they have ever been too. And that we picked the best venue ever!

I honestly can't think of a more magical place to get married! Thank you!

We got married here this last January and it was absolutely perfect! We put a clear tent in the teatro area and had our ceremony and reception down there and it was magnificent. Every one was raving about how amazing and beautiful the venue was. There is so much space to spread out, so many places for special details, and so different than any other place you will go! I highly recommend it.

AMAZING!!!! The Venue is out of this world. We recently had our wedding at Rancho, and it was better than I could have ever imagined. Everything was perfect. The day was perfect, the ceremony area was beautiful, the reception was so much fun, and the food AMAZING, thanks to 24 Carrots. The venue grounds are breath taking. I could have not asked for my Wedding day to be any better than it was. I am still getting comments about the Wedding. Most say it was the best wedding they have ever been too. I think it was pretty spectacular.

Rancho Las Lomas was the first place I visited when trying to find a wedding venue. I must've visited at least 20 other venues in Orange County but simply could not get RLL out of my head! The venue is so unique...while you're on the property you really feel as if you're in your own world. I am an OC transplant and I loved the fact that this venue showed our wedding guests a side of Orange County other than the beaches we're known for.

RLL allows you to arrive at the property early and really enjoy the day. There is a very nice bridal cottage to dress and have hair and make-up done in. The groom's cottage is much smaller, but decent. The outdoor areas are gorgeous and very well kept, and guests especially enjoyed all of the animals. We also really loved walking around the property and enjoying the animals with our bridal party and family after our rehearsal the night before the wedding. The "Grand Salon" is very cozy and made for a great intimate party.

There are definitely some things to keep in mind if you are considering a wedding here:

1. Catering must be through 24 Carrots on weekends - This is actually a HUGE PLUS!!! So thankful we didn't have to waste our time with anyone else! They are professional, know the venue inside and out, and serve delicious food!

2. Transportation - We ended up using a shuttle service to and from the Ayres hotel. This was one of the best things we could've done! It's not cheap, but guests are really able to enjoy themselves and we had piece of mind knowing no one would be drinking and driving on dark unfamiliar roads. Be careful with who you hire...Best Chauffeured was amazing and knew not to use shuttles that held more than 23 people.

3. Kara is now in charge - Nili is no longer with RLL. I personally didn't have nearly the bad experience shared by some of those who have posted reviews. Kara was not in charge while we planned our wedding, but was present throughout our planning process. She was always so pleasant, encouraging, and responsive. Everything you would expect. Putting her in charge was a smart move.

Those are the only "musts" to really be aware of. I also have to share that we used Lindsay at LVL Events for Coordinating and Larrissa at Inviting Occasion for flowers. I'll yelp on these ladies separately because they are SO AMAZING and deserve really long posts of their own! :)

We also really loved walking around the property and enjoying the animals with our bridal party and family after our rehearsal the night before the wedding. The "Grand Salon" is very cozy and made for a great intimate party.

There are definitely some things to keep in mind if you are considering a wedding here:

1. Catering must be through 24 Carrots on weekends - This is actually a HUGE PLUS!!! So thankful we didn't have to waste our time with anyone else! They are professional, know the venue inside and out, and serve delicious food!

2. Transportation - We ended up using a shuttle service to and from the Ayres hotel. This was one of the best things we could've done! It's not cheap, but guests are really able to enjoy themselves and we had piece of mind knowing no one would be drinking and driving on dark unfamiliar roads. Be careful with who you hire...Best Chauffeured was amazing and knew not to use shuttles that held more than 23 people.

3. Kara is now in charge - Nili is no longer with RLL. I personally didn't have nearly the bad experience shared by some of those who have posted reviews. Kara was not in charge while we planned our wedding, but was present throughout our planning process. She was always so pleasant, encouraging, and responsive. Everything you would expect. Putting her in charge was a smart move.

Those are the only "musts" to really be aware of. I also have to share that we used Lindsay at LVL Events for Coordinating and Larrissa at Inviting Occasion for flowers. I'll yelp on these ladies separately because they are SO AMAZING and deserve really long posts of their own! :) Read less

We had the first wedding of the new year!!! 1/1/11. This site was amazing. From the lit fireplace on our cold morning in the bridal suite, to the gorgeous grounds... everything was perfect. This venue was awesome as well because they honored a quote they had originally given me for the rental...even when they later figured out they were supposed to charge me more. Love their professionalism. They created a truly dream wedding... check them out!

If you are looking for a ceremony and venue that is out of the ordinary, RLL is the place. It is so beautiful there. Your guest will enjoy the wild animals they have on the property as well ( In cages of couse). I loved my Wedding. I had to plan it in 6 weeks. The catering was excellent. Perfect if you want a garden Wedding!!

I was recently married at Rancho Las Lomas on September 5, 2010.
I am honestly lost for words. People say that your wedding should be the best day of you life, and while I tried not to put that kind of pressure on it when I was planning, it magically turned out to be that way because of all the wonderful people I worked with. Nili Stevens was so supportive and amazing at directing me towards the best people: from my florist (Larissa@ inviting occasions), caterer (24 carrots), planner (Lisa Moon), photographers (Sargeants) ,video (Elysium) DJ (Dimirtri Zarate)...the day couldn't have been better. It does help that our families our crazy and love to have a good time :)
If you are looking for something unique in your wedding, Rancho is the place. It honestly feels like you are having a destination wedding. If I could do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing.

Well - this was just the best experience that my daughter and I have ever had - from beginning to end;the people, the service, the food, the PLACE. There was no guest that didn't rave, and say that it was the best wedding they'd ever been to. Choosing Rancho Las Lomas was truly the best decision we ever made, and everyone involved-Nili (Rancho), Laura (24 carots), Larissa (flowers), Lisa (coordinator), the Seargents (photographer), the people at Elysium (video) Dimitri (DJ), DPS (lighting) - all the BEST - all worked with each other with love for what they do. There are no words enough.

We were absolutely thrilled with our wedding at Rancho Las Lomas on June 12, 2010. After a venue catastrophe with our original venue just 4 months before our wedding, I contacted Rancho Las Lomas and Nili (their sales manager) took control of the situation right away! Luckily, our wedding date had become available and within a few days we had booked with Rancho Las Lomas and all the details were covered! 24 Carrots catering was FANTASTIC. They handled the food, bar, linens, everything - and did it perfectly. I never heard "sorry, we can't do that" or "I don't know what you want me to do" when we had questions, requests or concerns in the weeks before the wedding. They went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect for our wedding. Even down to our event captain, Heather, folding our napkins herself to insure that they were a perfect fit for our menu cards.

Rancho Las Lomas and 24 Carrots lived up to every expectation I had....even surpassing most of them! We got so many comments about how professional the catering staff was at the wedding, how beautifully presented and yummy the appetizers, late night snacks, and entrees were (no cold food at a wedding of 180 people!), how quick the staff responded to the guests, and just generally how fabulous our wedding was! I would without a doubt recommend Rancho Las Lomas and 24 Carrots to any couple who wants their wedding to be a fun, classy, gorgeous, relaxing and amazing experience. I'm not a perfectionist in my everyday life, but for my wedding I morphed into one. With Rancho Las Lomas and 24 Carrots at the wheel, we were relaxed and able to enjoy our day! It was still a blur, as I hear most wedding days are, but all of our guests said it was the most beautiful wedding they'd ever attended. I would, without hesitation, recommend Rancho Las Lomas to anyone considering using them for their wedding!

We knew Rancho was IT for us when we first saw it. The pictures on the website are pretty, but really you need to see Rancho in person to appreciate the absolutely breathtaking beauty of the place! It really is a wonder. And no other venue is like it--it's like a dream destination wedding without all the hassle! Our reception was held outdoors on November 7, 2009, and Nili and Kara and 24 Carrots were SO great in accommodating our special requests and they were also fantastic in addressing our concerns, as well. Nili and Kara are incredibly helpful and SO sweet--really amazing people to work with! It just made Rancho an even greater place. We had cocktails upstairs with a mariachi band, and then dinner and dancing downstairs in the teatro, and everything just flowed so effortlessly--we had some difficult-to-please guests attend our wedding, people who've been to weddings at the Pelican Hill Resort, the St. Regis, the Ritz, and the Montage, and they all agreed that ours was the most beautiful wedding they've ever attended--and that is ALL Rancho! Dancing under the stars is just about the best it gets! A hotel ballroom, even the nicest and most expensive, seems boring and dull in comparison! Everyone just raved and raved about how beautiful Rancho is, and though it is a bit pricier than some other outdoor venues, what you get is absolutely worth it! You have the entire venue to yourself ALL DAY--there's no other weddings to compete with, and there's no "block of time" you have to stay within. You and your guests are treated like VIP--there's valet parking, handicap access (our senior guests were treated VERY well!!), wonderful staff, a very quaint bridal cottage to get ready in, so many romantic nooks and alcoves to explore, plus the tigers!!... Where else can your guests see white tigers up-close and personal? The animals were a big hit with not only our big families, but our older guests, as well. And the place is overall well-maintained and well taken care of--looked absolutely spotless on our Big Day! We visited RLL several times before the wedding and had no problems or complaints at all. We had a long 2-year engagement, and everything went perfectly in those two years, and everyone was just SO nice! This is the ultimate location for a high-end upscale wedding, OR for a more modest wedding, since the natural beauty of the place, whatever your budget, will WOW your guests! We could not be happier, or have had a better experience. Thanks Nili and Kara for all your advice, support, and your thoughtfulness! We are SO SO happy!

Rancho Las Lomas provides you with a magical location that is completely yours for the day of your event. You will not be sharing the location with strangers that wandered in from other parts of the hotel or, worse yet, from the beach.
Everyone we worked with were extremely accomodating in arranging appointments for our initial visits as well as appointments that occurred during the planning stages. There is a site at the venue for each part of your ceremony, cocktail hour and reception or you can hold everything in the same setting. Because of its natural beauty (buildings, tiles, trees, flowering plants and potted plants), you need do very little more decorating. The bride's cottage is perfect for your appointment for hair, makeup and a celebratory glass of champagne before the ceremony. The path from the bride's cottage to the ceremony site makes a spectacular "walk down the aisle."
We were extremely pleased with our choice of Rancho Las Lomas and would heartily recommend it to anyone who asked.

I LOVE RANCHO LAS LOMAS. It is the most beautiful location from the minute you drive into the gate. It doesn't feel like you are in Orange County and you have the entire location to yourself on your wedding day. Everyone on the premise is there for your day. Nili will definitely help in making the place become a reality if you have a tighter budget.. from booking during off season days or fridays/sundays. Every penny is worth the place and I wouldn't have changed the location for anything... If you love the natural, outdoor, non-hotel like venue- this is the place to book!

In my opinion, there is no other venue as beautiful as Rancho Las Lomas. My officiant called it a "playground for the senses." Everywhere you walk, you hear the sound of running in water in the many fountains on the grounds. I barely needed a florist because of the natural beauty of the estate and it is kept immaculate. I had a wonderful experience with the Sales team for RLL. I was on a limited budget but just HAD to get married there. They worked with me to get a date in the off-season, on a Thursday; so not only did I save money on the venue, but all my vendors discounted their prices as well. I was constantly contacting Kara in the office to ask questions or be reminded of items that had slipped my mind, and she never made me feel like I was an inconvenience. In fact, I scheduled so many site visits to RLL during my planning process and it was never a problem. The most relaxing thing is knowing you don't have another wedding or event stacked up on you. So many other venues only give you a 4-hour time frame for your event, then you are rushed out to make way for the next. We were able to arrive at Rancho early in the morning, hang out in the bridal cottage (which is gorgeous), get our hair and make up done and just enjoy the greatest day of my life. I was my own wedding coordinator, with the help of my caterer. It can be done, but if you want to alleviate a little more stress of your shoulders, be sure to hire a coordinator. In fact, Nili at RLL has a list of preferred vendors she will recommend and who will work within your budget. I want to get married all over again because it truly was the best day of my life.

If you want a place that will WOW your family & friends this is the place! Once you rent out the place, you pick your caterer and I truly believe once you tell your vendors your venue, they will be more than overjoyed to work with you.

Nili and Kara with Rancho Las Lomas were wonderful to work with. I always heard back from them right away. I love that you are able to rent the venue for the entire day without worrying about another wedding coming up. It's private, exclusive, not to mention absolutely gorgeous! Everyone is still raving about how beautiful the place was. It had everything I could have wanted in a venue. Having the ceremony and reception at the same place was important to us, because we have some elderly family members that we didn't want to hassle with moving places. They have tigers, zebras, lamas, macaws....the place takes your breath away. Loved it. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Rancho Las Lomas is a hidden treasure! There is no other place that I could imagine getting married. The venue is more then any girl planning her wedding could ask for. Once you begin to walk around the property you can feel the love and romance in the air. It is completely private once the bride arrives which was a huge plus! People are still talking about our wedding a year later.

Rancho Las Lomas was a beautiful venue for our wedding! Our guests still comment to us now (months later) about how beautiful our venue was and how comfortable they felt having fun there. The staff of Rancho Las Lomas were also wonderful in helping to host our special day. They were professional, prompt, considerate, and flexible. We had a few unique circumstances that needed to be accommodated, and they made everything work out so that we had a wonderful time as the bride and groom and our guests had an amazing time as well.

Rancho Las Lomas was the venue of my dreams!!! I saw the venue on a t.v. show about a year before I got engaged and fell in love with the site! When I got engaged, I told my husband, then fiance, I already had our venue picked! I knew I wanted an outdoor wedding reception and something completely unique! The tigers sealed the deal (my husband and I love tigers)! My guests could not stop complimenting us on such an awesome wedding venue we had chosen. I read a previous review about the venue smelling like a zoo, and that is not true. I have a great sense of smell and I did not smell the animals. If you want to give your wedding guests a wedding that will leave their jaws dropped, this is it! People still talk about how our wedding was the best they've ever been to. Completely worth it!!! Thank you Rancho Las Lomas for a beautiful and unique experience!

Our recent wedding at Rancho was amazing! Everyone raved about the beautiful venue and couldn't get over how unique it was. On our wedding day, the staff really took care of us and the grounds looked beautiful! The animals (especially the parrots at the entrance) make it such a magical place. If you are looking for an outdoor ceremony and something different from the average hotel ballroom, this is the place. The best part....the property is yours all day, no sharing the space with another wedding or a restaurant. Also, the beautiful trees provide great shade so even though it was a warm summer day, everyone was very comfortable. We used the reception hall and had them keep all of the french doors open. It created this fantastic indoor/outdoor space. This venue was just the kind of thing I imagined in my mind when we first started planning.

I just had my dream wedding last month at Rancho Las Lomas. I worked with them for 6 months prior getting things planned and set. Their vendor list was wonderful. Everyone I worked with was so professional and knew exactly what they were doing. The staff at RLL was so accommodating and personal. I felt as though mine was the only wedding they were helping plan. They gave such attention to detail without stressing this bride out. Their suggestions were very helpful and I can honestly say I had a smooth experience planning the wedding and a seamless wedding day. As for the site and day itself, I can�t think of a single thing that went wrong or that I didn�t enjoy. The site is just spectacular both in the daytime and the evening. We saved so much on flowers because of the natural beauty of the place. We spent an amazing evening under the stars and danced the night away. A month later, I still have people tell me it was the most beautiful wedding they have ever attended.

There is so much I can say about RLL but much of it has been said. As a wedding venue it is beyond gorgeous. We only look at a few other venues before stumbling upon it but I can't imagine having been married anywhere else. I highly recommend hiring a coordinator that has worked there before and knows how the lay out and set up goes. When it comes to that stuff you are left on your own to figure that out but the good thing is they let you do whatever you want. We ended up spending more than we projected but I think that might be a common thing when it comes to weddings. As a warning you have to bring in everything thru your caterer (chairs, spoons, you name it,) but it was still worth it for us! There is just no other place in orange county or san diego thats quite like it.

Rancho Las Lomas is gorgeous. Our wedding photos looked like it came out of a fairytale. The staff responded in a timely manner. They were really great. Everything went perfectly.I did not give it full 5 stars for a few things that occurred on the wedding day/night:
1. The several days leading to and on my wedding, it was freezing cold (40's). The staff was aware of my arrival time of 9:30AM. The fireplace only had a small piece of whatever was burning from the wedding on Saturday. There were no extra logs or matches. The staff on-sight that morning had to go find the items, which given the size of the location...it took a while. When it was started, there was so much smoke. To receive the full 5 stars, I feel the fireplace should have been prepped the night before or started before my arrival.
2. We reserved the cottage for the wedding night. The staff said we could check in by 11am, but it could be earlier. As of our last meeting no one had rented it so we were told we could get in by 9/10AM & the groom/groomsman could get ready here. Well, the cottage was rented, we were not informed, & my groom had to drive home. I understand info can get missed so we were not too upset. However, the on-sight staff member that morning told my groom, "the cleaning crew will clean your cottage next once they are done cleaning the other one". If you know someone is waiting and will be renting the one cottage, wouldn't you clean that one first??? In addition, the on-sight staff member, although perfectly nice to me (the bride), I was told she was a little rude to the groom and groomsmen.

Overall, I still loved the venue and would recommend it to my friends/family and anyone needing a location for an event.

There is so much to be said about Rancho Las Lomas! From the second you pass through those gates it’s breathtaking. Let me start off by saving don’t make this you first visit when shopping for venues, we did and nothing else compared. My husband and I visited at least 20 locations after seeing Rancho and we found something wrong with every one of them. We did not want a ballroom/typical wedding, we wanted something different and we definitely got that. From the animals to the flowers/trees at RLL everything is perfect, well manicured and very well kept. We had our ceremony downstairs outside, our cocktail hour around the pool and reception inside. The places for photography here are just like nothing else. Wedding pictures @ RLL = AMAZING! The only reason we started looking elsewhere after seeing Rancho was strictly just cost. RLL itself as a venue is not overly priced, you are however required to use their exclusive cater (24 Carrots), I reviewed them separately, but let me tell you they were worth every dime that we spent. You also have to factor in Valet services (which are required).
All the staff is really great to work with at RLL, I think over the whole experience between my mom and I we talked to every single person at RLL. My husband and I stayed in Casa Bella (1 of the properties on premises) on our wedding night and it was fantastic definitely worth it. Since we had rented the house all day my bridal party and I also got ready their giving the actual Bridal Cottage to the groom and guys to get ready in. That was the only downfall of RLL, where the guys have to get ready is like a small closet.
Overall I could not have asked for a more amazing venue, it really was a dream come true, everything was so perfect, my Husband and I always say we want to do it again. Almost every wedding guest has e-mailed, called, or sent a card saying how awesome RLL was and that they were honored to have been able to enjoy what an amazing venue it truly is. Thanks RLL!

Rancho Las Lomas is quite possibly the most beautiful, breathtaking venue available in Southern California. We had planned to have our wedding at another venue, which fell through-- lucky for us!!! We love nature, and this venue truly had it all-- from indoor to outdoor seating, lots of nature, plenty of room, and professional staff. Our guests ooh'd and ahh'd and said that it was the most beautiful spot they'd seen for a wedding-- truly magical. We highly recommend it to anyone. The staff was GREAT- Another review on 24 Carrots on their page.

There is simply no place like Rancho Las Lomas. It's amazingly beautiful. You feel as though you've left Orange County even though you're just a few miles outside of Foothill Ranch. Our guests were simply blown away by it. Another incredible advantage is that it's all yours the entire day of your event. No other brides or guests watching from the pool like at many hotels. Although it's not an inexpensive venue it's worth it for the privacy alone. We got ready at Rancho and really appreciated not having to travel from place to place on our wedding day. We also liked the ability to have two completely different locations for the ceremony and reception, both equally beautiful and right together. Another advantage is the ability to hire your own vendors, allowing you endless choices in both product and price for your wedding day. Rancho's vendor suggestions are generally over priced but with a little research you can have an incredible wedding for a reasonable price at Rancho. Yes, you have to bring in absolutley everything, down to the tables and chairs but that gives you total control over the cost and look of your wedding. However, I would suggest using their caterer, a requirement on the weekends. 24 Carrots knows their way around Rancho, their food is out of this world and their overal performance on the day of the wedding was outstanding. If you are looking for a private, personal, and memorable event location, Rancho Las Lomas is worth every penny.

Beautiful venue. All of the staff are extremely helpful. Ended up being more expensive than we thought, partly because the caterer you have to choose (24 carrots) nickel and dimes you. However, we had many people tell us it was the best wedding they had ever been to and the food was great.

Our wedding was held here in January 24, 2009. It's obvious this is a place of beauty and privacy above all other wedding venues in the area. It is a little pricey (we were lucky to get a great deal since it was January) and you do have to use some of their specific vendors which didn't give you much flexibility if you're on certain budgets (yes, we went pretty far above our budget because of choosing our wedding here). But if you can have your wedding here, do it! You will definitely not regret it. You will get amazing pictures everywhere you take a shot. Your guests will have a surreal time, saying this is one of the "classiest" weddings they've been too, without even doing much to the place (I didn't go wild on decorations or flowers, I let the natural beauty of the place do the work for me). The vendors they suggested were very professional and easy to work with, so the value was good for the money you spent (but you should always negotiate to get the best out of it.)
The privacy aspect of the location really made a big difference, it makes it all about the two of you and your family and friends and that's it. We look at all our wedding day photos now, and that's all we see is just our wedding, which makes it perfect.

This place was beautiful! My now husband and I fell in love with it the moment we set foot on this venue. Lots of greenery and it has a spanish/hacienda flair to it. All of our guests were so impressed and commented for months after the wedding about such beautiful and original location. It is a little pricey in my opinion and they are not very flexible but I have to say it was worth every penny. We had to use their caterer, chairs, bar services. so the price reflects those services

When you have a wedding at Rancho Las Lomas, you get what you pay for. An amazing backdrop canvas to have an amazing wedding. We love having the upstairs fountain area for the cocktail and then the downstairs for reception with a view of Ricks Cafe and greenary/trees. It was beautiful and every time we had a question your staff was responsive.

Rancho Las Lomas is one of the most beautiful venues I have ever seen. When we visited this venue for the first time, we knew we had to have our wedding here. All of our guests loved the venue and still talk about how wonderful it was. Nili and Kara were really nice and great to work with. The only issues we had with the venue is that you had to use their caterer (24 Carrots) which was a pain because they weren't the best to work with and they served one of our tables completely raw chicken at our wedding. For such a beautiful venue, you would think they would have a better caterer or they would at least let you choose. Other than that it was a great place to have our wedding and we're glad we did.

Gorgeous and unique venue, excellent food. We received many positive comments about both from our guests. Everyone was friendly and easy to work with, although (perhaps understandably) at times we felt like we were being a little rushed.

I believe there are some limitations on music after a certain hour, but didn't affect our reception. A little on the high side in terms of price, but you definitely get what you pay for. We got a discount for booking "off season" and it worked out fine (although it rained the weekend before and after our wedding).

Be prepared to do some math - they charge a usage fee per fork, per plate, chair, etc. Wasn't a round figure per preson.

To be clear, Rancho Las Lomas is the venue, and 24 Carrots is the caterers, but on weekends you don't have a choice - you have to use 24 Carrots.

Rancho Las Lomas is absolutely beautiful!!! The second I saw it I HAD to get married there! It is a little pricey but so worth it! We had both our reception and ceremony outside in the courtyard and it was perfect!!! Because it's such a great site it was completely booked for all Saturday nights in 2008 so we ended up getting married on a friday. Which ended up working in our favor because you can bring in your own catering on fri nights!
One of the best parts is that you have the complete property for the entire day of the wedding! My bridesmaids and I got there in the morning and had the hair and makeup people come to us. It was awesome to spend the day there with the girls, sitting out on the deck drinking mimosas and getting ready together in the great little bridal room they have!

My wedding at Rancho Las Lomas was absolutely beautiful! My husband and I only had one issue and that was with 24 Carrots doing our catering. We knew going into it that we would have no other choice when it came to caterers. However, we expected the caterers to be more professional. With Rancho Las Lomas being such a beautiful and EXPENSIVE venue, we expected they would choose a caterer that would represent them just as well!

This location is absolutely fabulous! It's got all the elements of a natural setting, with animals and beautiful water fountains and trees everywhere. I had an outdoor ceremony surrounded by all the outdoor elements, and an indoor reception with a wonderful fireplace and cocktail area. The pictures on their website don't do it justice. The staff was excellent and very accommodating. They loaded all my gifts into my car before the end of the night so I didn't have to worry about any of that. The price has gone up substantially since I was married there only 8 months ago. It's definitely not mid-range anymore. You can save money by booking a Friday or Saturday event, and not during peak season (Oct-Feb). The only complaint I have was getting back my deposit. It was a month after my event when I realized I hadn't received my deposit back yet. I should have gotten it back 2 weeks after the event. It took 5+ emails, numerous phone calls and 2 months to figure out where the check was, when it was sent, where it was supposedly sent to. I didn't get my check until a full 3 months after my wedding.

Let me start by saying if I had to do it all over again, I'd go with Rancho Las Lomas in a heart beat! It's an absolutely gorgeous location!! I realize my review ratings don't necessarily reflect that. I had issues with RLL's sales person from the beginning. RLL Is a highly sought after location and so she was very quick to tell us that from the get go. When we booked the location we decided on a Sunday (holiday weekend). We received no discounts even though it was a Sunday because it was a holiday weekend. When I had questions it seemed like it was hard to get ahold of her and she wasn't always helpful. On the day of the wedding there wasn't a representative from RLL at all. I never did meet the sales rep. When I did the tour it was someone different and on the day of if there was someone I never saw them. I never received a follow up call asking if we were happy with our experience or for that matter if we needed anything. We had to use Craigs on the Table for catering and fortunately they are very familiar with RLL. I cannot say enough positive things about Craigs!! Oh and one more thing, when I was scheduling my tour of RLL I was told they did not allow tours on wedding days (once the bride was on site). I had to tell them when I would arrive ... I told them no sooner than 2:00 (we had a 5:00 wedding). Well, wouldn't you know, on the day of my wedding, after I was already there (mind you this was after 3:00) there was someone there looking at the site. When my coordinator approached them she was told that she worked for RLL (but she was there with her parents) and was showing the site to her family. I didn't overly mind that she was there but I didn't like that I had been told that wouldn't happen and then it did. Like I said, you absolutely cannot get past the fact that it's a goregous location and if I had to do it all over again, I'd still pick RLL!

The physical environment is outstanding, it is truly a gorgeous, secluded venue that makes you feel like you're having a wedding at a rich friend's house. The natural flowers and huge oak trees provide a unique setting for your wedding. We could not have picked a more beautiful venue.

Because it's such a unique, popular wedding location in Orange County, just be prepared to not have a lot of flexibility. The cost is the cost, the dates available are the date available. So while the booking fee is high, they know you'll pay it if you want that spectacular location. They don't really need to do anything else, even though it would be a really nice thing to do to offer good customer service.

At the time of our wedding, they had an exclusive caterer for weekend dates (Craig's On the Table Catering), and they leave it up to the caterer to handle "coordination" of your wedding. We held our tasting with them, and the food was very average, but came with a very premium cost. RLL also gives you a list of their "preferred vendors" for lighting, DJ, photography, etc. If you book any of them, the RLL salesperson gets a commission, so she really doesn't have any incentive to help you if you don't go with people on her list because she makes no money.

We ended up paying a high buy-out fee to be able to bring in our own caterer and event production company/planner, and did not choose any other vendors off of their "preferred list". It was worth paying the extra money to have the good food we wanted, and the good service we wanted.

The other reviewers are correct that the salesperson at the venue isn't exactly brimming with helpfulness, so don't expect much there. She basically just books the venue, handles the calendar, takes the payments, and tells you you have to use their preferred caterer and valet company...that's it. Make sure you hire a coordinator to take care of managing the rest of the vendors and all your details.
