Let me begin by saying The Ranch was is the most magical place with an incredible, knowledgeable staff and breathtaking views!! Bringing guests to Laguna Beach from Florida, people said said it was the best and most beautiful wedding they'd ever been to. From when guests arrived, they were in awe by the gorgeous canyon back drop. We had our wedding ceremony on the fairway under a canopy of trees which was quiet, serene and a magical setting. The reception was on the Harvest Patio which was spectacular with cafe lighting and an old bare tree. The venue is ideal for romantic photos as there are so many bridges, green space and back drops for many different pictures. We were able to get married here outside during the summer and had the most perfect weather. Lindsey, the coordinator at the Ranch was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was attentive, patient, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Lindsey and the chef were brought over from the Montage. Our guests raved that the food was amazing (which most people never comment on). We also stayed here the night of the wedding and our suite was two stories, two bedrooms and beautifully decorated. The prices are also affordable for the five star service, venue and scenery in Laguna. Thank you for an absolutely perfect wedding and experience!! We could not be happier!

The Ranch is a magical place for a wedding! As soon as we looked at the Ranch, we knew this was it. Extra sentimental value added for my husband who grew up playing golf on the Ben Brown's course with his dad and grandfather. There were some challenges with planning because they were undergoing renovations and reviews with the coastal commission at the time, but at the end of it all, our wedding was perfect! The catering staff were so great and professional, being sure to take care of the bride and groom too :). And the food was phenomenal! Everything went according to plan without a hitch. We got compliments from our friends and family on the gorgeous views and the great food!

The Ranch at Laguna Beach is an amazing venue. I would highly recommend it for any wedding or event. Not only is it absolutely stunning, but the on site catering is amazing. We had a brunch for our wedding and all of our friends and family were blown away with how good the food was and the selection we had.

We booked The Ranch at Laguna Beach based on its location alone. Stunning views and the feeling of a secret garden off of PCH. As it turns out, over the course of our wedding planning, the venue was undergoing a complete overhaul. New menus, packages, furniture, guest options, and a brand new wedding venue were just the beginning. We were so lucky to have stumbled on this gorgeous gem hidden in Laguna Beach! The food was amazing and the staff is amazing! We had the wedding of our dreams, and so much more than we ever expected. A truly perfect day and I know that it was in large part to this amazing venue. I would recommend this to any couple looking for a gorgeous outdoor wedding!

Aliso Creek Inn was the perfect choice for us. It was beautiful, elegant, picturesque, a great price, and served amazing food. The backdrops are phenomenal if you are having an outdoor wedding, and the inside is very pretty too. The food service manager, Eduardo, and his staff, are beyond outstanding as well. The ONLY thing that prevented me from giving this location a perfect score was the wedding coordinator. She was quick to get frustrated by things she was paid to do, such as answer emails, and she was rude to my wedding party at the rehearsal and while we were getting ready the day of because we were running late. Also, some of the important questions I asked via email went unanswered or her answers didn't match with what she later expected. Overall, she didn't make me or my wedding party feel relaxed or that it was important we were having a good time. It seemed all about staying on exact schedule, no matter if we didn't get the pictures we wanted and so forth. However, she did a good job organizing everything and making sure there were no major problems. Fortunately, she was able to make the actual day a pleasant experience. I would beyond recommend this place if you are on a budget or have all the money in the world; it's beautiful and all other services are outstanding. I am still receiving compliments on our wedding weeks later, with people saying it was the most gorgeous place and the best time they've had at a wedding. :)

The Ranch at Laguna Beach responded with the following comments:

This is my first negative review and I am truly affected by it. I’m not sure what exactly happen, maybe personalities clashed or I was not being my regular self. I think the first problem may have been that I didn’t define my roll verses a “coordinators” roll the best I could have. I am the Sales and Catering Manager with the Venue. I do assist with some of the planning, but I am mostly the day of person. I know this does not excuse the rudeness and frustration that was perceived. It honestly made me feel better that you accepted my apology for the unpleasant year of planning through the email I sent you. I was also extremely happy to hear that your wedding day was still a wonderful success. It certainly was beautiful!

We had our reception at Aliso Creek Inn overlooking the golf course. It's the the most beautiful and unique location. I wouldn't even trade this spot for the Montage! When you drive up the hill from PCH you feel yourself leaving the craziness of Orange County and entering a tropical island that's secluded by several mountains, a huge lush golf course and beautiful palm trees. Krystal was our coordinator and she's amazing! She knows the property inside and out and was prompt to answer all our emails and phone calls. She helped us organize our timelines along with decor ideas and gave us do's and don'ts of what works best. The staff at Aliso Creek was also superb. Every time my husband or I couldn't find where we left our champagne glass one of the waiters quickly found it. The whole evening was perfect! It was my fairy tale come true, under the stars. xo

We just recently had our wedding there. The wedding location is amazingly beautiful, the wedding coordinator was nice, and it's one of the least expensive places to marry in the O.C. The coordinator answered all of my emails within hours of sending them. My problem is with their catering. The food took 2 extra hours to come out then what was planned. We even had to go back there two or three times to ask them to bring out the food which is absolutely ridiculous. We had done a food tasting months before and the food was amazing. We ended up ordering filet mignon and mahi mahi. Well, that's not what we got at the wedding. The meat was like eating a rubber band and about 95% of my guests complained that their mahi mahi was raw in the center. We also spent a few hundred extra dollars to rent a projector which we also had to remind them twice to bring out and set up for us. You should never had to remind someone to do their jobs! They also threw away our handmade cake toppers that were very expensive and special to us and now we have nothing to show for it. The gift I bought for my husband as our wedding present was stolen from his room. He forgot a jacket and card in the room when we left for pictures and everything was accounted for and returned to us from the hotel staff except his brand new present. The wedding coordinator on the day was not the one we had been working with for months and she seemed extremely stressed out and frustrated with us. We seemed rushed through everything/ pictures only to get back and had to wait for our food for hours. Overall it wasn't super inexpensive when all is said and done and for the money we expected more. The food was a total fail, our cake toppers were thrown out, and things were stolen from rooms we used. We wrote multiple emails to the coordinator and manager with our complaints and there was no response. This place is absolutely unprofessional and I would NEVER recommend having a wedding there...EVER!!
