Saddlerock Ranch Wedding
Saddlerock Ranch is located on a huge piece of property in the Santa Monica Mountains. The ranch has five wedding/event locations and is home to hundreds of acres of grape vines and a collection of exotic animals including a Yak, Giraffe, Camel, and a Zebra! There’s also the Malibu Wine Safari Tour which provides tours of the expansive ranch and gives you the opportunity to sip wine at some of the most majestic spots on the Ranch. And if you love hiking and wine, you can check out their Malibu Wine Hikes experience!
The ranch also offers the Malibu Wines tasting area where you can reserve a table or space at the ranch to sample wine, relax, and hang out with your friends! They do not offer food, but you’re welcome to bring in your own picnic basket or have food delivered to you by Uber Eats. Their Summer Hours (May-October) are Mon-Thur: 11am-7pm, Fri-Sat: 11am-9pm, and Sunday 10am-7pm. Winter Hours (November-April) are 11am-7pm. The last wine tasting is at 6:30pm, but you can buy bottles of wine until they close.
A Saddlerock Ranch wedding offers the ultimate escape from the hustle and bustle of city life in Los Angeles. Once you arrive you’re instantly transported to a world filled with vineyards, rolling hills, oak trees, and a whole lot of peace and tranquility. But the best part is that you don’t have to travel hours away to experience it! It is so well known for its beauty and charm that it has hosted many celebrity weddings including Kelsey Grammar, Don Henley, and Lisa Kudrow!
My favorite thing about the Ranch are all of the unique photo opportunities scattered throughout the property. From a huge yellow frame in front of vine-covered hills, to a door that leads to nowhere, to vintage vehicles, and exotic animals, there is no shortage of locations available for unique, playful, and romantic images!
Saddlerock Ranch Wedding Locations
Here’s some info about the 5 locations at Saddlerock that can host your wedding celebration!
Chateau Le Dome
This is my personal favorite wedding location! It’s located on a hilltop so you and your wedding guests can take in amazing views of the vineyards and surrounding mountains. The Chateau provides the perfect location to get ready in and to take a little break from everything or to get some relief on warm days. Wedding ceremonies are held near the edge of the hilltop under a fallen oak tree arch and receptions are held on the beautiful lawn are next to the Chateau.
Oak Grove is an amazing location for large weddings because it can accommodate up to 450 guests! It is a large lawn area surrounded by Oak trees so you can really customize the area to tell your perfect love story. My favorite feature of Oak Grove is the custom made rock waterfall and the nearby wooden bridge because they make for perfect picture locations!
Malibu Hilltop Estate
The Malibu Hilltop Estate is similar to Chateau Le Dome in that it’s on a hilltop and has a similar layout. It is the newest addition to the ranch property and it’s also the most intimate accommodating up to 100 guests. The best part of this location is the gorgeous log cabin which provides the perfect rustic backdrop for a wedding!
Camp Cabernet is the perfect location for brides and grooms that want a bit of quirkiness at their wedding. This unique location features a large lawn area that sits below a majestic rocky hillside. And surrounding the lawn are airstreams, trailers, cars, and even a vintage taxi cab! You won’t find a wedding location like this anywhere else in Southern California!
The Garden area can hold up to 500 guests so it’s great for really large wedding parties. The Garden’s star attraction is the ceremony area that features a beautiful 250 year old weeping willow tree. I can’t think of a more romantic backdrop for a wedding ceremony!
Saddlerock Ranch is located at 32111 Mulholland Highway in Malibu, CA.
