The year was 2012 when my daughter came to me after having traveled across the state to tour a barn wedding venue for her upcoming wedding. As she arrived back and the ranch and walked into the barn I immediately recognized that look on her face. You know, the one that says she was about to ask for something big! She proceeded to announce that she wanted to have her wedding right here at the ranch! I wish I could have seen the perplexed look on my face as she said to me, “Mom, our barn is just as beautiful as the one I just visited so why not just have my wedding here?” ”Now mind you, we were a full working horse ranch at the time with horses everywhere, especially in the barn! So, I reluctantly agreed and secretly thought she had lost her mind. So then the transformation began… We cleaned and painted and then cleaned and painted some more. We planned and decorated and then suddenly whalaa!! Our beautiful horse barn was magically transformed into wedding wonderland! I had no idea how this one life event in our family would change the course of the future for our ranch.
Fast forward to today, as I look back over the years and the many weddings that we have hosted here and my heart is full! The honor of witnessing relationships move to the next level as they exchange their vows under the same old large oak tree that my daughter married under, is rewarding all in itself. But even years after our couples have ridden off into the sunset, I love to see the joy they experience when they have their first child together. The excitement and pride they experience when they purchase their first home, start a new career or get a promotion! And most of all, I love seeing them celebrate their anniversaries year after year as it gives me great pleasure to know that it all started here!

The Rocking L Ranch made our wedding day perfect. From the first visit I knew it was the place I wanted to have our wedding. Susan was incredibly friendly and explained all of the details of what we had to choose from and was very flexible in adding and removing services from the packages to fit our needs. Her vendors she uses are incredible as well, I can’t tell you how many people I had ask about our pastor, photographer, caterer, and florist. If you can, make sure you get Bonnie to be your day of coordinator. She makes sure everything is taken care of the way you want it and she makes sure the bride is doing good throughout the day of. Their staff they have working through the night is pretty incredible as well. I’ve had so many friends and family members get married who said it was the most stressful time of their lives. If you go with The Rocking L Ranch, you wont have to worry about anything except your personal touches. They take care of the stress for you. My guests who attended said it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to, and that the venue was amazing. You really can’t beat the value you get with this venue. Thank you Susan, Bonnie, and staff for making our day so perfect. -Kristen and Eric.
