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!

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

The staff at Little Hills Ranch was extremely easy to work with. They were quick to answer any emails and phone calls during the planning process. I felt very comfortable on the day of the wedding knowing that everything had been thoroughly discussed ahead of time. Everything was set up just as I had wanted it to be, and the staff made sure to check in with us throughout the event. This is the perfect setting for an outdoor event! The food was incredible and our guests had an amazing time. Thanks so much for one of the most amazing and memorable experiences!

I had my wedding at The Ranch at Little Hills back in September and everything was perfect! The planning process was so smooth and Vanessa was SO helpful. She was very organized and had all the details mapped out for the big day. She went above and beyond to make sure that the day was perfect. I highly recommend this venue for any bride who is looking for a rustic, casual, and relaxed venue with a great staff!

I was extremely pleased with The Ranch at Little Hills. The venue was amazingly beautiful! We had an evening wedding and having both the ceremony and reception in the same location was such a priority for us. Amy and staff was more than helpful and went up and beyond our expectations. I would recommend family and friends for future weddings to this location!

I grew up going to my fathers company picnics at the ranch. When I found out they were doing weddings I told my finance at the time that we ought to look into it. It was hard for me to envision the ranch as a wedding site initially. When we arrived for a tour we knew it was perfect! We met with our coordinator Amy who helped guide us through the process every step of the way. Everything turned out perfect. It was more than I ever dreamed. Our guests all agreed it was an amazing site and could not have been more picturesque. The food was amazing, the wine great and the staff was polite, and personable. The price was very reasonable as well in comparassion to other sites in the area.

We had our wedding at the Ranch at Little Hills, which we chose for a multitude of reasons, including (but not limited to) the ambiance, the professionalism of the staff, and the value. The Ranch at Little Hills is a jack-of-all-trades sort of site, but its location in the wooded hills of San Ramon give it the sort of natural beauty that my wife and I were looking for in a venue.

Our wedding coordinator (and the manager for the venue) Amy was always just a phone call away and was extremely patient when dealing with some of our last-minute freakouts. During the planning process, Amy really went out of her way to help us figure things out and offered some great insight on how we could best incorporate the plans we had for the big day. She knows how to run a tight ship and adapt to changing situations, and as a result, the wedding ran much smoother than we had anticipated.

Amy and the rest of the extremely helpful and courteous staff of the Ranch at Little Hills were always on-hand when needed and made sure that my wife and I didn't have to worry about a thing on our big day. Frankly, we're very grateful that we were able to work with Amy. Without her help, we would have turned into nervous wrecks.

Our wedding couldn't have turned out better, and all of our guests agree wholeheartedly. We're very happy we chose the Ranch at Little Hills, and we'd recommend the venue and its staff in a heartbeat.

My daugher had her wedding reception at The Ranch at Little Hills in July 2011. It was wonderful! Before ever selecting a reception site, she had a vision of exactly what her reception would look like. My daughter wanted to take a very "hands on" approach to every detail and Amy (the wedding coordinator) was very receptive to that. She listened to our ideas, made suggestions and together we came up with a plan, When we arrive on on the wedding day, everything was perfect! We used our own caterer so I cannot comment on the food. I recommend going to their spring Open House so you can sample the food as well as the wine and beer selections offered in their beverage package. If you are looking for a site where you can have your wedding with the beauty of nature surrounding you, I would recommend you take a look at The Ranch at Little Hills.

We decided to have a short engagement and were able to work with the Ranch at Little Hills to prepare our wedding in under four months and our wedding was wonderful. The location is truly beautiful (we had our wedding in the Oak Groves) so that we didn't have to include a lot of decorations and yet still hear from our friends and family how lovely it was. The staff at the Ranch were extremely helpful, professional, and let us define our wedding as we saw fit. They were able to respond to our specific requests and were not pushy in any way. The food was good - the DJ they recommended was great, and kept our guests dancing til late. I highly recommend the venue for a wedding.

The wedding planner was great to work with. She returned calls ASAP. The meetings with her went smoothly, and all directions I gave for my wedding day came out exactly how I asked ( table settings, staff uniform, clean grounds).
There are many food menus to choose from, good variety. Loved the food. I do recommend paying the extra charge for the glasswear, It gave the outdoor setting a touch of elegance.
