Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review

The Old Ranch Country Club enjoys a reputation for being a place that's easy to get to and easy to work with. With its comfortable clubhouse, it's also a place where guests feel right at home.

Situated at the northern edge of Orange County, Old Ranch is within a short drive to three airports and several major freeways, making it convenient for local or out-of-state travelers en route to your celebration.

Although Old Ranch has been a members-only venue since its inception in 1967, their banquet facilities are available to nonmembers for special events. As you enter, you're greeted by a huge mural of blue skies, trees and rolling hills—a tableau that mimics the club's pastoral surroundings. Framed by a stone arch, it provides a dramatic backdrop for photos, as well as a conversation piece for guests socializing here before heading into the spacious reception salon.

Once you're in the salon, prepare to be delighted by what you see. A wall of floor-to-ceiling Nana windows open like an accordion to an outdoor terrace with an expansive view of the golf course and lake, complete with a fountain. This modern 6,000-square-foot banquet space is large enough to accommodate both a wedding and reception. However, it's also divisible into four sections that can be used individually or in combination, depending on the size of your event. With its casual-yet-refined sensibility, the club atmosphere invites guests to relax with a glass of chilled Chardonnay as they drink in the landscape. Speaking of the landscape, there are a number of photogenic spots overlooking the fairways for some before- or after-ceremony pictures.

Perhaps the club's most popular area is its gorgeous bridal courtyard, designed especially for outdoor ceremonies. Ringed by flowers, palm trees and other greenery, it has a lush, almost tropical feel. As friends and family look on from their lawn seating, they have a breathtaking view of the lake and golf course in the background.

Old Ranch is not only conveniently located for your special event, it's also only a short drive to the beach for some fun in the California sun. The beach we're referring to is Seal Beach, a haven for those in search of a laid-back, small town atmosphere. Replete with suntanned surfers, a treelined Main Street and a colorful past, the town is packed with seaside delights and history. Between this appealing country club and its friendly coastal neighbor, you'll find all the elements you need for a wonderful weekend wedding.
