DJ’s catering is the exclusive caterer for our venue, rancho de las Palmas so we had no choice but to go with them, and boy are we glad that was the case! The food was soooo amazing! All night long we got compliments on how delicious everything tasted. We went with the California buffet, which was tri tip, bbq chicken breast, for sides we chose Mac and cheese and mashed potatoes. It was sooooo yummy, we knew we wanted those choices when we had them at our tasting! The staff was also very nice and attentive. Our only regret is not eating more food!
A Bright Blue Travel Themed Wedding in Ventura County
From the bride: Jon and I met in Japan where we were both living and teaching English. There’s a tradition in Japanese culture that if you fold 1,000 cranes then your wish or dream will come true. So with the help of my friends and family we folded the blue birds (over champagne, a couple of at-home brunches, and many hours of Netflix) and strung them with beads on fishing wire...

We absolutely recommend RDLP
Laura (on-site manager/day of coordinator), and the amazing crew they have! We only went to look at this venue and loved everything about it..the palm trees, the amazing greenery, the ducks, the turtles, the rocks, and just everything..so we picked it right away! We chose to get married in the garden and the reception was to be held in the gazebo. It was decorated so nicely and perfect for our Christmas wedding! The ceremony was set to start at 2:30pm..and we had been watching the weather reports all month. Laura let us know that it was raining hard in Camarillo and headed our way and gave us option on what we wanted to do. We decided tent was only option and everything from the garden had to be moved under the tent in the rain. And the whole crew was amazing and got it all done so fast! The rain definitely changed things up a bit but Laura was so great and made sure things still turned out great! Laura and her assistant decorated everything beautifully and made sure everything on our timeline occurred and that helped us relax and just enjoy the night! DJs catering food was delicious and they were the kindest and funnest crew! They came up to our sweetheart table several times to see what we needed and were so bubbly and kind! RDLP is such a great place to get married. It is so beautiful. Sad our day is over but overjoyed with how it turned out! 🙂
This venue is amazing
All my guests were in awe! We got married a week ago, and people still keep talking about how unique and beautiful is was. Laura is a fabulous coordinator! I totally recommend this place to everyone!
This was an amazing wedding venue hidden in moorpark
It offered a get away of lush green plants and tropical flowers that you wouldn't expect to find in southern California. Laura did an amazing job as our day of coordinator. We had a bit of rain during our wedding and her and her team did an amazing job making sure that we didn't have any problems.
This place is beautiful!
Pros: Fairy tale like beauty Owner is great Great service Good price Cons: Have to use their caterer There's a lake with water works and turtles and ducks come out during the spring. There are water fountains everywhere, creating a serene water trickling sound and all the areas where the guests hang out are amazing (Groom Island in the middle of the lake is definitely a favorite place to be). We had Laura (the owner) be our day of coordinator and she did an amazing job. She was able to decorate and organize everything, herded the guests, gave us the cue to walk down the aisle... everything. She did cost $500 but it was worth it. The place was $1500 to rent on a Friday (Saturdays and Sundays are more), which is a really good price, but you also have to use their caterer. The catering service was cheaper than a lot of other wedding catering services and the food was delicious, so it wasn't a loss.
Having our wedding at Rancho de Las Palmas was a dream come true
I had attended my high school prom there back in 2002 and it was just as beautiful as I remembered it! The land manager Laura is very flexible and easy to work with! She ensured that all of our needs were met and that they "Big Day" ran smoothly. The grounds are very well maintained, and we greatly appreciated having a beautiful bridal suite on site to use in preparation for the ceremony! It truly feels like you're getting married in a secret paradise and we highly recommend it!
We had our wedding at Rancho de las Palmas in October
Laura (the on-site coordinator) was so easy to work with, gracious and generous. She went above and beyond to make sure our day was the very best. There are very ceremony sites available at the venue (we chose the garden for 120 people) that can accommodate various sizes of weddings and the reception area was gorgeous. We received so many compliments from guests saying that it looked just like a movie and the coordination between Laura and the caterer (DJ's catering) was seamless. I cannot recommend highly enough. The venue is way better in person than the website looks.
Rancho De Las Palmas is a hidden gem in Ventura County
RDLP cannot be beat in terms of beauty, professionalism, price, customer service, etc. Laura, our wedding coordinator and manager of the venue is amazing, she took all the stress off our shoulders and went out of her way to make our wedding the most amazing day ever. Our guests are still raving about the beauty of the venue, which you have to see in person! RDLP partners with DJ's catering, which offers the best food and service I have ever seen at a wedding. I truly believe we couldn't have found a better place to get married.
I can't even begin to explain how Amazing this place is
My wife and I just got married Oct 12, 2013 and had the most amazing experience. We cant even begin to tell you how many compliments we received about the venue. Best part is, Laura!!!! She is the venue coordinator and is above and beyond the most amazing, sincere person to be able to work with in a wedding planning siuation. She made EVERYTHING run smooth and fixed all problems that arose. She made the venue worth every penny and more. We truly cant say enough good things about this place, from the venue location all the way to Laura!!! We LOVED IT!!! And so did ALL our guests.
Rancho is a beautiful venue with a verity of options for your ceremony
Laura who is the event coordinator is absolutely amazing to work with she helped my special day run smoothly and made sure everything come together just the way I wanted xoxo Laura. The food was amazing it just was not your typical catering type food it was as if I was at a fine restaurant. Hands down if you are looking for a dream come true wedding this is the place and the staff to book with!!!!
I love this venue and highly recommend it for events
I was married there recently in August. I had a great experience with Laura who was totally awesome, if I didn't call her she called me, she was also very helpful and had a list of vendors she had worked with in the past. She was flexible, attentive and responsive which is exactly what you need when planning a wedding because things constantly change. She's amazing after my wedding someone had left their wallet and she even came to my hotel to drop it off. The venue itself is gorgeous the grounds are well maintained. The place rescues turtles so you may see them during the day sunbathing while the ducks swim in the large pond. At night the place is lit up with twinkle lights and the pond is lit up by a water feature multicolored lights. This summer, especially in my wedding day it was pretty humid but it cooled down at night and was comfortable. Again, I highly recommended this place my only regret is I didn't get to walk around the property a whole lot on the day of my wedding and have more photos of the grounds taken. Looking back I wish I could be been a guest at my wedding!
Everything was perfect and beautiful
I couldn't have chosen a more perfect place to get married! Everything was perfect and beautiful. We have received many compliments from all of our guests about the venue. You almost do not need many decorations because it has its own charm. If you want a tropical wedding, this is the place! Every single one of our wedding photos looks as though we are in paradise, not one picture looks like a typical banquet hall and I love that! There are three different areas to have your ceremony and each one is beautiful. All the gorgeous scenery of an outdoor wedding, with the benefits of an indoor reception. We also had Laura coordinate our rehearsal and wedding day, and she was awesome! On my wedding day everyone was so helpful I really didn't have a care in the world. She really goes out of her way to make your day enjoyable for you, and at the end of the day you need to enjoy your special day! I would recommend it a hundred times!!
The only word that justly describes Rancho. It is the PERFECT spot for a wedding. You can choose to have your ceremony in three different gorgeous spots, I chose the grassy area, which was stunning. I fell in love with this place the moment I saw it, and there was no turning back. Laura is wonderful to work with, and knows what she is doing! She helped make my day absolutely wonderful, was so helpful with everything, and is just a fun person to be around! They work exclusively with Dj's catering- which could be good or bad. I liked it because I didn't have to go around worrying about finding a cater, and Dj's ended up being fabulous, but it also means you have a fixed price for your caterer. But I loved Dj's so everything worked out! Rancho is fabulous, and if you are looking for a fairy-tale, picture perfect, outdoor wedding, look no further!
Rancho de las Palmas in Moorpark was the perfect place for our wedding
There are several different places on site to have your ceremony, all of which are equally beautiful. There are palm trees everywhere and a lake with turtles, ducks, and fish. One of the greatest things about this venue is the site planner/event coordinator, Laura. She was so sweet and always willing to talk to me about different details, no matter what time or day. When the wedding day came, I didn't have to worry about a thing. She had it all taken care of so that I was able to thoroughly enjoy our wedding! I highly recommend this venue!
I thoroughly enjoyed having my wedding this past summer at Rancho De Las Palmas
From the beginning stages of planning a wedding - the who's, what's, when's, where's, and why's (because I love my fiancé - husband now - lol). As a first time bride this was a very stressful time. While driving up to my future wedding location and touring the beautifully groomed grounds I could definitely picture all of my friends and family having an amazing time there. After my initial meeting with Laura, Rancho's event coordinator, I knew that my weddings where's question was answered! My wedding day came and everything was what I had imagined it to look like. During the whole wedding process all of the staff were very professional and made sure my expectations were met. I would definitely recommend Rancho as an event venue for any of my friends!
Rancho De Las Palmas was a BEAUTIFUL setting for our January 29th wedding
It ended up being a wonderful and sunny day, although we were expecting wind and cold. Laura was always prompt and friendly in helping us through the planning. All my guests were amazed at what a wonderful venue we had.
My fiance fell in love with this place the first time we came
We put in a deposit soon after, and we didn't regret it. Laura was extremely helpful and very responsive in all email conversations and questions I had. Our wedding day turned out beautiful, and very organized. All my guests complimented how beautiful and spacious the venue was. I had 170 guests. The kids were having fun looking at the turtles & ducks.
The venue was amazing
Everything we had asked to be done for the ceremony areas was completed. We had no worries and everything was cleaned for us (some venues require that). They require security in the contract which I didn't understand and don't recall seeing which is really the only down side I saw. The place is truly amazing to be at.
Thanks for dealing with all our chaos
Between the Friday decorating, late arrival and the accommodating and easy to work with. We got so many compliments on the venue, the ambiance and the service from both friends and family. Beautiful remote-feeling location, but with the convenience of near a highway exit (easy to find). Hardly any decorating needed since RDLP is so lush and gorgeous! Great place for a wedding to entertain kids (there's a playground on site!) and beautiful, elegant backdrop. Oh, also, everything is paved, which makes a "garden-style" wedding without all the "garden-style" mess. Laura is a sweetheart and was always there to answer my questions.
This magical location is set back in the mountains
This magical location is set back in the mountains and gives the privacy one would want for such a special event. The different pockets of space, separated by gorgeous fountains and landscaping, allow guests the freedom to spread out and enjoy the wedding in their own way. A great location for both the ceremony and reception!
