Rachael & Alec’s Alisal Guest Ranch Wedding Celebration

Blog, Real Weddings / 02.02.20195 comments

The historic Alisal Guest Ranch and Resort has been serving generations of families. What few don’t realize is that it’s not a typical resort: it is almost like a time-share where families have certain dates they traditionally come and stay every year, their favorite dining table and other unique aspects that don’t allow someone outside their regular clientele to typically just pick up and stay at the ranch on a whim for a quick overnight like a regular hotel. But when you’ve had the opportunity to stay at the ranch, you’ll understand why. And staying any shorter than 2 nights isn’t worth doing, truly.

Alisal Guest Ranch and Resort boasts some incredible backdrops for weddings and receptions.  From the popular Alisal River Terrace (no overnight accommodations are needed to book this beautiful space) to the main ranch property Creekside, Oval Lawn, Sycamore Room, lakeside, or the incredible Historic Adobe.

The Historic Adobe is another 20 minute ride via hay truck from the main ranch and the scenery on the drive is spectacular.  While there are many more complications involved with events at the Historic Old Adobe, it can be one of the most distinct wedding experiences ever, in a truly unique setting.

While many of my couples choose to have their wedding ceremonies

Blog, Real Weddings / 02.07.20160 comments

art-amy-and-jeff-at-alisal-main-entranceI instantly adored Amy and Jeff, who were fun-loving individuals and knew exactly what they wanted.  They were a wedding planner’s dream client, always in a great mood, gave timely responses that were indicative of a clear self-knowledge, which of course, makes my job easier.  Amy and Jeff chose to have their charming wine country wedding at Alisal River Terrace, a satellite location associated with the main legendary & historic Alisal Guest Ranch and Resort.

Jeff and Amy exchanged their vows in front of the intimate lake at Alisal River Terrace and afterwards guests adjourned up to the terrace for a delightful cocktail hour with sweeping views of the wine country hillside and as the sun set, and the stars came out, enjoyed the glow of fire bowls, italian fire heaters, dancing under the stars and making s’mores!  You can check out video highlights of their day here.

Alisal Guest Ranch Wedding at the Historic Old Adobe

Blog, Real Weddings / 04.26.20150 comments

alisal adobe3Alisal Guest Ranch and Resort has been hosting memorable weddings for generations. In fact, it has been the locale of celebrity nuptials starting with Clark Gable and Lady Sylvia many years ago.  Besides offering picture-perfect backdrops for the nature and woodland-inspired wedding, the main ranch offers exclusivity for wedding couples, their families and guests, with a ranch buy-out (or in some cases, a “partial” buy-out).  Alisal is not a typical hotel and because it focuses on a dedicated daily “program” for guests that is part of the Alisal legendary guest experience, all weddings require a “buy-out” of some kind, so Alisal can deliver the experience and service for which it is known.  There are several options for Alisal Guest Ranch weddings and receptions and one of our absolute favorites is

The latest trends include:
