Venue Setting

With a plethora of breathtaking natural vistas and backdrops for wedding events and photos, Slide Ranch is the ideal setting for couples who love the outdoors and want a laid-back atmosphere for their special day. Say “I do” with sweeping views framed by the stunning scenery of the California coast, then party into the night in our yurt or in our new Farm to Table Teaching Center. The natural lighting at Slide Ranch is gorgeous, particularly in the late afternoon when the sun is setting over the Pacific. There is also a trail stretching from the wedding ceremony area right down to the sands, which offers plenty of stunning natural locations for couple portraits and sunset shots, backed by the rugged rock formations of the coast. When you book Slide Ranch you have access to the sprawling wedding venue for you and your guests. Better yet, you can BYOB and use your own caterer. Because Slide Ranch is an environmental education non-profit organization, you know your money is going to a worthy cause.

Venue Features
The Scene:
Overlooking the rugged coastline of Northern California, Slide Ranch provides a beautiful, natural setting for your very special day. Located on 132 acres within Golden Gate National Park, choose your backdrop from a number of picture-perfect settings - coastline, pasture, Pacific sunset, garden, farm, or all of the above. Even thought we're only 30 minutes north of San Francisco, it will feel like a destination wedding. Hear the waves crash as you say 'I do'. Take your wedding pictures by our rustic barn or in the tidal zone. Party into the night in our traditional Mongolian yurt. Because Slide Ranch is a 501c3 nonprofit environmental educational facility for kids, you know your money is going to a worthy cause.
