Rustic romance in a rebuilt hay barn—with ocean views to boot!
Crashing waves against the coastline offer a picture-perfect ceremony backdrop. But the real gem of Spring Ranch is the 1840's hay barn that came piece-by-piece all the way from our maple-leaf-loving neighbors to the north.

Venue Features
The Scene:
Spring Ranch is located on the coast of Mendocino County, a land of dazzling seascapes and fertile wine country that is about three and a half hours north of San Francisco. Still relatively undiscovered, Mendocino has a rustic elegance all its own – combining natural beauty and centuries old buildings with a modern take on repose and luxury. Spring Ranch embodies this ethos. One of the oldest complete coastal ranches in California, the original property encompasses 350 breathtakingly unspoiled acres of meadows and forest along pristine Pacific coastline. The Victorian buildings have been lovingly restored and upgraded with antiques and indulgent amenities. An extraordinary value as a venue for a wedding or small event, 19 people total can sleep on site in a majestic Carpenter Gothic Victorian mansion and a renovated original Carriage Barn with treehouse-like views of the ocean. An 1860s Event Barn has been reimagined with soaring ceilings and room for up to 200 to dine (indoors only is 120 approximately). Open the massive barn doors to the expansive patio where twinkling lights and an enormous stone fireplace beckon.
 
The house and barns are ideally situated in the middle of Spring Ranch Agricultural Preserve. To the south and east of the house are organic farms where vegetables, flowers, and pumpkins grow in the fall. To the north soars a magnificent grove of ancient eucalyptus trees that was planted in the 1800s by the ranch’s original owners. To the west of the house is the Spring Ranch Coastal Preserve and some of the most untouched oceanfront on the California coast. These dramatic bluffs and empty white sand beaches are a short stroll from the Ranch’s gracious Victorian buildings. In fact, many couples opt to say their vows in this romantic seaside spot, with the jewel box village of Mendocino visible behind them.
 
Design:
The builidings have all been renovated with architectural salvage collected from around the world.

Spring Ranch

8475 Highway 1, Little River, CA, United States

Created in partnership with our friends at Spring Ranch.
 


Just as you enter the coastal town of Mendocino, you’ll see a sprawling 19th-century Victorian ranch that overlooks the dramatic northern California coastline. Spring Ranch features an awe-inspiring Victorian and two carriage barns from the 1800's that have been carefully restored and filled with architectural salvage and collected antiques from around the world. Massive eucalyptus trees fill the property, setting a scene that feels like you’re tucked into a private forest. This earthy, rustic setting in award-winning Anderson Valley wine country was the perfect backdrop for a recent steampunk style wedding.

Photographer Stephanie Fisher of From the Daisies recently filled us in on all the details of this vintage, bohemian wedding from the feel of the forests to the hidden whiskey bar and that gorgeous coastal sunset light. She's breaking down everything you need know about hosting a wedding at this coastal gem of a venue: Spring Ranch.
