Horses, Trees and Verdant Views: The Ranch at Bandy Canyon is the Ultimate in Outdoor Wedding Venues

When a piece of land is cared for for over 140 years it develops a soul and a richness from its history and from all the love that has gone into it. The Ranch at Bandy Canyon has been loved since 1870 when it was first settled on 144 acres by a family creating a new life in the San Pasqual Valley [home to wineries, rolling hills and lovely views - note: part of the Ranch's original parcel of land is now The Wild Animal Safari Park!]. And unless you have been living under a rock for the last few years rustic outdoor, barn and farm weddings are the absolute biggest trend in weddings. Having recently undergone a multi million dollar remodel, The Ranch at Bandy Canyon is the perfect wedding venue setting to create a love filled, joyous celebration with trees, horses, gorgeous views, and generations of love in every stone. 

Set deep in Bandy Canyon, this Southern California ranch is adorned with rustic cabins, a dramatic pool for lounging and entertaining and an authentic 1930’s adobe lodge with two kitchens, antique stoves, and multiple fireplaces. A charming terrace and wedding ceremony site are also available for wedding ceremonies, receptions, and special events. We just love the on site cottages too for an intimate getaway!

Lavender Blue dilly dilly, a charming outdoor wedding at Quail Haven Farm in Bonsall

An olde English song from the late 17th century goes:

"Lavender's blue, dilly, dilly, lavender's green, When I am king, dilly, dilly, You shall be queen. Who told you so, dilly, dilly, who told you so? 'Twas my own heart, dilly, dilly, that told me so."  

With satchels of Lavender lending a delicate element to the day, The Battaglia's wedding unfolded on a warm October day, with moody skies and turned into a love-filled celebration of lavender and gold worthy of a modern day king and queen. Lovingly photographed by Great Woodland Photography you can see the whole wedding here...
