Our Wedding Venue

Each of our wedding couples has a wonderful story. Some of you met and fell in love at Cal Poly and want to share this special place with your friends and family. Some of you have been vacationing on the Central Coast since childhood, and returning to the coast for your special day feels like coming home. Maybe you’re looking for a place where you and your guests can slow down to savor a weekend that you’ll always remember. Or perhaps you’re local and you know that no destination wedding can compare to what we have right here at home. Whatever your story, your next adventure begins here at Pepper Tree Ranch.

The Bower ready room

The space you use to get ready on your wedding day, whether it's a hotel room or a hidden room at the venue, will be the headquarters for you and your wedding party. It's the place you'll stash your bags, use as refuge for a moment of quiet, and otherwise chill wearing cute outfits during the getting-ready process.
