The best decision we made for our entire wedding process was picking Greengate Ranch as our venue. It is one of the most well run establishments I have ever come across and is absolutely stunning. My husband and I went to Cal Poly and wanted to get married back where we met years (many many many years) ago. Start to finish, GGRV was easy to work with and incredibly communicative. Jena runs an amazing operation and has put together an absolutely amazing vendor list to work with. We ended up booking the venue from Thursday to Sunday and then just the Bridle Suite until Monday. We had our entire bridal party stay onsite across the 4 homes. The homes have a 5 star resort feeling (unbelievable interior design followed by views in every direction). Jena and team were very flexible and allowed my husband and I to store and drop of wine and beer on Wednesday evening so that it wouldn't get spoiled in the hot sun while we spent a night in Shell Beach. They made the check in and check out process extremely easy. For the entire Thurs-Mon experience, it was money well worth it and well spent. ... Our family and friends who flew in from all over the country were amazed by Greengate, the beauty, and the magic that it creates. Thanks for such an amazing wedding experience.

Getting married at GGRV is an absolute dream. It goes without saying that the venue is stunning and the care and love the owners put into the property is second to none. Beyond that, the team at GGRV is above and beyond anything we could have imagined. They are kind, patient, responsive, accommodating, helpful - everything you could ever want and then some! We rented out the venue for a full weekend and hosted both our welcome dinner and Sunday brunch in addition to the wedding festivities and it really felt like we were getting married in our home. Our guests couldn't stop commenting on how picture perfect the venue was. It's honestly difficult to put into words how amazing this venue is - check it out for yourself and you will not be disappointed! :)

Greengate is one of those once-in-a-lifetime type places. Not only is it beautifully decorated and maintained, it is professionally staffed and such an easy place to either host a wedding, stay the week or host any sort of event. Our wedding was spectacular at Greengate and the pool made for an awesome day of relaxation afterwards.

We can't thank you enough for all you did to make our wedding day so special! We knew right away that Greengate was our dream venue and each of you made the planning experience easy, fun, and stress-free! Greengate is such a special place and we'll always treasure the memories we made on our wedding weekend. Thank you for all that you did to make August 19th the best day of our lives. We can't wait to visit again!!

Blake and I had the most perfect wedding weekend. The venue exceeded all of our expectations and the wedding day came together exactly as we had dreamed! We truly had the time of our lives celebrating with our family and friends at the ranch. Thank you again for everything! Greengate will always have a special place in our hearts!

I knew, as soon as I stepped foot onto Greengate's property, that I had found the perfect place for our dream wedding. And, boy, do I love being right! :) The property is stunning. Our wedding was at the beginning of November, and the foliage on the trees and in the vineyards were beautifully golden, perfect for our autumn wedding. The lawns were also gorgeous and green (my favorite color). It's a perfectly designed venue. Corinne and her staff are wonderful. Corinne always responded very promptly to my many questions throughout the many months of planning. And the staff who helped us throughout the wedding weekend (especially Jena!) were always available to help us and our guests with anything. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thank you, Corinne, Jena, and everyone at Greengate, for giving us the wedding weekend of our dreams!

Greengate is the key to the most incredible wedding weekend (see how I didn't say day) of all time. Corinne and her staff are helpful, accommodating and all around wonderful to work with. We loved that each part of our wedding (ceremony, cocktail hour, reception and dancing) all had different location. It really made it feel like we were progressing through the night. I loved having all our family and friends close throughout the weekend and it helped us get in all the time we wanted with our out of town guests. Thank you Greengate Ranch and Vineyard for making all our wedding dreams come true. Hopefully we can convince everyone for a 5 year renewal so we can come back!

"I just wanted to thank you so much for all your help and incredible hospitality during the entire wedding planning experience! You all were so wonderful to work with, and the venue was everything we could have ever hoped for and so much more. It was absolutely perfect. I can't tell you the number of people that were blown away by the Ranch House, the barn, the vineyard...everything. You truly have a magical, incredible place there! Ryan, myself and all our friends had the most amazing, amazing wedding weekend and it's do in large part to you!"

Ryan and I just wanted to say thank to Greengate Ranch and it's staff for not only making our big day special but our entire wedding weekend! The cottage house was the cherry on top to an already truly awesome venue! The house was beautiful, relaxing and so much fun! It was really cool to be able to sit on the front porch or just glance out the window and see the barn as it was being transformed for our special day. On the actual day of our wedding the Greengate staff made us feel sooooo special; you guys truly went above and beyond and we can't thank you enough! We honestly could not have picked a better place for our special day!!! We look forward to coming back and celebrating anniversaries for many years to come! Thank you again for helping make our big day such a special and memorable experience!
