I cannot comment enough about how much we loved Spanish Oaks and Jamie! My husband and I planned our wedding from overseas and Jamie worked so hard with us at getting everything together. We booked the venue simply from seeing its website but seeing it in person makes it stand out even more! Pictures do not do it justice! We were worried about rain on the day of the wedding but Spanish Oaks contingency plan was great. My husband and I got married in December so weather was a concern but Jamie did everything she could to help us make sure we would have the best day no matter the weather. We loved the beautiful oak tree outside for the ceremony which is why we choose this venue in the first place but we were blown away by the hospitality from start to finish. Our bridal party also stayed in a rental house on site that had plenty of space (we slept 15 people there for two nights) and was a great additional space to get ready and store wedding decorations. This was an all inclusive site(from tables to linens to chairs to bride/groom suites to get ready) plus plenty of time the day before the wedding to set up and they offered tear down service for an additional fee. Overall, we HIGHLY recommend this venue to anyone.

Oh my gosh! Spanish Oaks Ranch is the MOST beautiful wedding venue ever. We were so fortunate to be able to celebrate our special day there. All the trees were lit up, the fountain was beautiful, the decor inside is gorgeous, and the patio is perfect for dancing! We had our ceremony on the hill under a huge tree, our social hour (hors d'oeuvres and lawn games) on the patio, had our dinner and first dance inside the building, and then went back outside for dancing. Our guests could not stop talking about the venue. Jamie was a joy to work with- she would text, email, or call me back within minutes, no matter what time I contacted her. It was so wonderful knowing that she was so responsive. It was perfectly priced compared to the places nearby, and was the perfect size for our group of 130. I can't recommend it highly enough!

Spanish Oaks Ranch was the ideal venue for our elegant, vintage wedding. Jamie (owner and my coordinator) was a pleasure to work with and from the beginning was super responsive and just so incredibly helpful. The venue is gorgeous, and we made a point to utilize the entire property for our reception. Our guest traveled from all over the country to be at our wedding, and they all left feeling as though they spent the evening in one of the most beautiful settings in the Central Coast. We had a semi-destination wedding and planned our Central Coast event from the Bay Area. Jamie had no problem keeping in constant contact and making sure that I was feeling comfortable with the event planning process even though I was far away. When I dropped off all of the details that I had collected and put together for the wedding I was nervous that my vision may not be executed how I had envisioned, but Jamie made sure everything looked incredible and it actually turned out better than I could've imagined. My husband and I thank Jamie and her team at Spanish Oaks for helping us put on a wedding of our dreams. I recommend Spanish Oaks to any bride -- local or destination.

What a fantastic venue....our guests were just in awe of the location. Jamie, the event/venue coordinator, was the best! She was extremely attentive, knowledgeable, and professional. We couldn't have done it without her! The rental house that we stayed in on the property was beautiful as well and oh so convenient. We are so happy that we chose this location for our daughter's wedding.

Spanish Oaks Ranch is the perfect wedding venue! Jamie, the venue coordinator, was very responsive to all of my emails filled with lots of questions. She was very accommodating to let me visit the venue a couple of times with my vendors to make sure we had all of the details covered.

The venue is located on a sprawling property with gorgeous oak trees perfect for getting married under. The banquet hall is large enough for dinner or tables can be placed outside on the beautiful back patio and lawn. The venue also has a large bridal suite and grooms room perfect for getting ready.
Tables and chairs are included in the rental price and Jamie contracts rentals at a very competitive price. We rented all of the glasses, dishes and serving ware from Jamie, she even has a bar you can rent!

This is a great venue for a DIY bride who is looking for freedom to not have to choose the vendors that a venue dictates. I was able to bring in all of my own vendors and had access to the venue Friday afternoon to get everything set up, although the venue is not available to hold the rehearsal dinner.

Many of my guests commented on how beautiful the venue was, it was the perfect place for a fall wedding. I couldn't have wished for a better to venue to get married at, everything was wonderful!

What a wonderful place to have your wedding and reception! Everything about it was perfect! My daughter always wanted to get married under the old oak tree at her grandparents house, but since her grandparents passed away this was the perfect substitute! The grounds and the building are so beautiful and so clean and so many beautiful places for pictures to be taken! Jamie was just wonderful and always got back to me within a short time! Even when she was on vacation so would respond to me my email. This venue was everything our daughter had ever dreamed of and her and her new husbands wedding day was perfect. Jamie is so flexible and let our daughter have everything extra that she wanted. We are just so glad that we found Spanish Oaks Ranch and Jamie!!! We will forever be grateful!

The location is beautiful. However, after reading some of the other reviews in this site and hearing some additional experiences from friends that match mine, I felt obligated to leave a review to give future brides considering this location a fair warning.

Location great, very nice to be able to bring your own food and beverages, it fits a good number of people but feels good at a range of sizes and logistically it features many pluses. Major draw back is Jamie, the venue contact, and having to work with her. She seems nice at first but once you sign your contract you get a very different person. She tries to nickel and dime you to use all of her services (flowers, DJ, rentals) and becomes very difficult if you don't. My perception and reason for not using her services was a lack of class and quality, but I didn't use them so I may have been wrong.

Jamie is high-strung, quick to panic and jump to accusations, and overall the last kind of personality you want to depend upon on your big day. Her communication lacked and was unprofessional, she cut us off from access to the venue for two of the three weeks leading up to my wedding date, and she showed up an hour and 45 minutes late to my scheduled walk through with all of my vendors, just to name a couple of the specific programs. It is really a shame as the venue is terrific in so many other ways but she was the greatest source of stress in my wedding planning experience.

Spanish Oaks Ranch responded with the following comments:

In Rebuttal to the FALSE accusations that are being made toward me I feel it is time to tell my side of the story!!
Claim #1--Nickel & diming her. The venue comes with 20 round tables, 20 banquet tables, and 300 white chairs. Yes we do offer these services, flowers, Rental's, , at a reduced price. She chose not to use my services, In NO way did I FORCE her to use my services. I was not upset with her at all. Claim #2-- High strung-panic-- In response to this matter. Amanda said that I showed up and hour in a 45 minutes late. What actually happened was we had set up an appointment for 3:00 for ALL her vendor's to come at that time, and I actually showed up at 2:45 to open up the venue and get things ready for her and her vendor's, and when I drove up there were people mulling around the ground's and inside my venue, (which my venue was locked) I walked in the back door that was already opened. ALL her vendor's and Her were already in there Yes I was very upset and was wondering how they even got in. I asked that questions and Amanda said" I came through a window and let everyone in". She BROKE into my venue and had been there an hour and 45 minutes before our schedule appointment without my knowledge. I do not feel that I over reacted on this matter. It was a very terrible feeling having people in my venue without my knowledge. We are a gated ranch and people have to call to get in, accept during their events. I feel that what she is accusing me of is completely not what happened. We at Spanish Oaks Ranch fulfilled everything on her contract and more!!
