Will other guests be staying at the ranch during our wedding?
No! The entire ranch will be reserved exclusively for the use of you and your wedding guests. The cost of the venue includes exclusivity of our property and all included amenities. This means the entire property, the full bar, the pool and jacuzzi, game room, and dining room will be solely for the enjoyment of you and your friends and family. Included in the venue cost is your use of the entire property and several locations for the ceremony, reception, and rehearsal dinner. The stables will still be open to the general public for horseback riding.
Can you accommodate guests with special needs or access requirements?
Yes! We can accommodate wedding guests of all ages, and will facilitate any special needs or access requirements they may have. We can also accommodate any dietary restrictions.
Are outside caterers permitted?
The Circle Bar B will provide dinner and breakfast for the wedding guests. We are eager and willing to work with the Bride and Groom to create delicious meals for your party to reflect your personal tastes and preferences. We do allow outside caterers and vendors to provide specialty items, late-nights snacks, and special treats. Some examples of outside food vendors from previous weddings include a gourmet ice cream sandwich truck, authentic taco stand, and specialty pizzas.
What type of food will be served?
Breakfast and dinner are included with the cost of the accommodations for the overnight guests and there is an additional price per person for other wedding guests for each meal. We are eager to customize our delicious meals to fit your tastes and preferences, and are able to accommodate any dietary restrictions.
