Venue Setting

Seven Sycamores Ranch dates back to 1937 when our current owner Bob McKellar's parents bought the ranch & than later converted the property into an event space when Bob decided to host his own wedding in what is now known as the gardens. The venue is nestled in between 120 acres of a variety of citrus, one of which include the famous Cuties. We also house one of the first orange grove maze's which surely will spark the interest of your guests! Our sycamore and oak tree's provide shade during the warmer months and our ivy arbor creates an intimate setting for a ceremony or reception.

Venue Features
The Scene:
Upon arriving to our venue you will walk under a grapevine arbor that features vintage barn light pendants to light the path. When you walk through the gardens you will get a little educated on what a World War 2 observation tower looked like, which has been on the property since the ranch began. The barn venue also houses a piece of history, which is the vintage windows that were taken out of a local school and than installed into the barn.
Design:
The Gardens & The Barn venues create so many vignettes for portraits, most of which are private and out of the way of guests and wedding day traffic. The venue feels big from a guest's perspective, but is intimate enough that the wedding day party can easily move from place to place. Our venue also features the Hummingbird Cottage which makes getting ready very comfortable and entertaining family very convenient.
Standout Venue Features:
Our glass barn venue features a fire pit area to allow you and your guests to perfect that s'more recipe!
Extra Perks:
We house all of our tables and chair in house which are included with all of our packages.

Historic Seven Sycamores

32985 Rd 164, Ivanhoe, California, United States



In 1927, seven sycamore trees were planted in Ivanhoe, California, and the rest is history. The story doesn’t end there—in fact, it only gets better. That’s because, decades later, the orchard and farmland would become one of Central Valley’ premiere wedding venues. We're of course talking about Historic Seven Sycamores Ranch.

See, long before there were pergolas, brick paths, and ivy-laden trellises, there sat a warm and inviting homestead. Settled in the shadows of sequoias and surrounded by orange trees, the homestead remains gorgeously surrounded by its 120-acre ranch. History has remained a key component of the property, with its World War II observation tower and the barn's vintage windows being taken from a local school. New life has been no stranger either. Everything from olives to camellia flowers have popped up over the years. What may be most magical, though, is that current ranch owner Bob McKellar was raised on the property. His parents planted those iconic sycamore trees.
