Rancho del Cielo
is located in the hills above Paradise Cove, with a spectacular ocean view, an acre of gardens, olive groves, oak trees, rustic trails and an old California cottage, which all make for one of the dreamiest and jaw-dropping Malibu wedding venues we've come across. Think an California ranch house settled deep into a garden filled with roses, jasmine and lavender that looks out over meadows to the ocean. By day you'll see the Channel Islands – Santa Catalina, San Clemente, Santa Barbara and the distant blue hills of Rancho Palos Verdes. By night the moon and stars compete with the blazing necklace of lights around the Santa Monica Bay. There are three miles of trails through the chaparral below the olive grove and the gardens have spacious lawns and quiet romantic corners, outdoor fireplaces and breathtaking views.
