Venue Spotlight | Vista West Ranch

Vista West Ranch

Located off the beaten path, Vista West Ranch would be an amazing get-a-way for a romantic wedding ceremony and reception for just about any couple. Even being a traditional Midwest girl, the beauty of this amazing venue had me re-considering what I have dreamt for my wedding day since I was a little girl. With its’ spacious and woodsy landscape, this family- owned gem emits an extremely welcoming feel the moment you walk into the high- ceiling, upscale barn.

This amazing venue brings in rustic, Southern decorations throughout the different areas of the venue landscape, creating a very homey, but classy, feel. And the great thing about this venue is that it is extremely flexible: 250 people capacity & DIY friendly to transform the space into anything you can dream of (just no sparklers, y’all!).

Like mentioned before, Vista West Ranch has several areas for guests to enjoy, such as the ceremony area, the reception area, a fire-pit, a biergarten, the private bridal suite (that actually overlooks the ceremony area, how cute is that?!), and an extremely spacious “man cave” for the groom and his men. The grounds also contain a beautiful rock waterfall and garden full of fresh veggies grown by the family.

Another cool detail about this family-owned venue is that the current owner’s wife was actually raised in one of the cottages on site, making it a truly family business where you can feel good about spending your hard earned money with. Joe (owner of VWR) makes all guests and possible clients feel extremely comfortable while going through the process, which is not always easy to find!

VWR truly wants to make your special day easy, so when clients sign to have their wedding here they have an abundance of things included in the price. Joe has folding chairs, tables, linens, 2 on-site bartenders, DJ keg taps, and even a margarita machine! One of the coolest details about this venue is that it is also fully wired outside, so no one ever misses a special moment just because they can’t hear, or maybe didn’t get the best seat in the house. For an extra charge, VWR also has on-site lodging for up to 28 guests, which is super convenient considering its secluded location.
