Nestled in the Las Trampas Regional Wilderness of San Ramon, California, The Ranch at Little Hills offers a beautiful, intimate setting for a wedding ceremony and reception. Though it's only five minutes from the San Ramon proper, the park allows guests a feeling of privacy and escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Guests stroll through the main entrance and come upon the ceremony area, surrounded by majestic redwoods. The redwood pergola deck is a perfect setting for the couple to take their marriage vows, and provides a beautiful site for wedding pictures. Just behind the ceremony site, the reception takes place under stately oak trees, beneath a white canopy tent where the lighting has been perfected to create a romantic, candle-lit atmosphere. Guests will enjoy a hosted bar while dancing the night away under the stars.

The grounds are a substantial 25 acres and provide endless photo opportunities with plenty of secluded areas for the bride and groom to steal a few moments away during their first hours as husband and wife.

The Ranch at Little Hills is a beautiful landscape for the beginnings of marital bliss!

The Ranch at Little Hills was the perfect setting for our wedding. My husband and I both love the outdoors, so the ceremony site under the trees was just right. Our wedding coordinator was a huge help during the planning process and always quick to respond to all of our questions.

Amazing outdoor venue! Lauren, the wedding day coordinator was always very helpful and very quick to answer any question via email or text. Even while away on vacation she responded to emails. Everything went according to schedule and the way I had envisioned and everyone came to me and said how great the space was and how well the ceremony and reception went.

Our wedding was so enjoyable and stress-free! Everything went so smooth from planning to the clean-up! Lauren & the staff were on top of the details and they were so helpful until the very end. We chose RLH for their positive attitude, as opposed to other places who tended to focus on what couldn't be done. We received lots of compliments about the venue too.

I am the mother-of-the-bride, who desperately wanted a 'country club' wedding reception; but, that was not my daughter's vision at all. The RLH had exactly the feel she was looking for, and I must say, it exceeded my expectations. We proceeded to the venue after a 4pm church ceremony. It was beautiful at that time of day, and just got more and more lovely as the evening progressed. Many guests were not from the area, so the venue showcased Northern California's natural beauty perfectly. The theme/decor she chose was not at all rustic, yet looked beautiful in the white tent and in the setting. I don't think there is a better wedding coordinator to be found than Lauren Maser. All of our guests had a wonderful time, and we received many compliments on the choice of venue.

I had my wedding here on Saturday June 7th, 2014. From beginning to end, it was an amazing experience. The wedding site is beautiful and the food was delicious. The customizable layout was a huge plus for my husband and I - as we wanted to incorporate the wedding theme in various areas.
In addition to everything this venue had to offer, I would have to say that we were most pleased with our time working with the site's wedding coordinator Lauren Maser. Lauren is absolutely AMAZING. She promptly responded to all of my emails (I had a ton), ensured our order with Pleasanton Rentals met our expectations, and made sure we felt comfortable through the entire planning process of our wedding. Lauren is a true professional who hands down made our experience with The Ranch at Little Hills an unforgettable one.

We LOVED having our wedding at The Ranch at Little Hills. Everything was perfect. Our wedding planner, Lauren, is SO good at her job and handled the details of the wedding (before and during) perfectly. Many, many guests told us that it was one of the best weddings they've attended. Definitely recommend this venue!

I just came back from my honeymoon a few days ago and knew one of the first things I had to do when I got back was give this place a fantastic review. My husband and I had such an amazing experience with RLH, and we literally were smiling about how perfect our day was through the entire two-week honeymoon. First of all, through the venue we were given the most amazing wedding coordinator, Lauren Maser, and I must say she is the absolute best. Everything from the months/weeks/days/hours/minutes/seconds leading up the wedding were completely under control, there were no surprises, and I felt SO much relief knowing I had a coordinator to help oversee everything. She was so much more than just a day-of planner, she was practically my maid-of-honor and I can't imagine doing this without her. We met with her several times before the big day, not to mention clogged her inbox with questions, confirmations, and other random chit chat that she was all so responsive, helpful, and organized with. She sat with my fiancé and I for hours helping us decide patterns for Japanese lantern colors, table arrangements, flower placements, and gave us so much advice and ideas that we used to the last drop for the big day. I honestly don't know how I could have stayed so calm throughout this entire journey had it not been for her amazing support along every step of the way.

The Ranch at Little Hills is a complete gem, I loved how hidden it was, the trees and lights and tent and everything felt exactly how I always wanted it to be on my special day. The staff was kind, professional, and willing to bend over backwards to see that every detail was perfect and just as expected for the big day. We chose to have our ceremony at the Wildcat location (which is up above in the trees), and it looked absolutely stunning in May with the sun streaming through the trees.
I'm so so happy with this experience, and I would recommend this venue and of course Lauren to anyone lucky enough to have her :)

If you are looking for a very reasonably priced, all inclusive rustic venue with an awesome coordinator and super helpful staff, then this is it. Wedding planning is definitely not easy, but Lauren definitely made it a lot easier and less stressful. While she is The Ranch's day-of coordinator, she had 3 check in meetings with us leading up to the wedding and was always available via email/phone. She and the staff took care of everything the day of our wedding. We didn't have to check in on set up, nor did we have to clean/pack or take stuff home with us after the wedding. They packed everything up nicely and stored it away for our friends to pick up the day after. For a nominal fee, you can also have the staff help with various tasks (instead of doing it yourself, they will do it for you -- loved this option as it relieved us of having to stress over additional details). They helped us string lights all around the gazebo area, set up and arrange decorations on the guest book table, dessert table, and s'mores table. You will receive a high level of professionalism and responsiveness, along with friendly and superb service. We highly recommend The Ranch at Little Hills
