I love featuring snippets of gorgeous wedding inspiration that I find on the web, or details and pictures from events that I've planned or attended from time to time. But I've been wanting to feature more local wedding and party related stuff on the blog for a while. California's Central Valley really is home to so many awesome locations that are ideal for hosting parties and events and I feel like there really isn't a solid web presence for all of them. I thought today I would kick off the new series of highlighting great venues and vendors with a feature on The Vista Ranch & Cellars located in Merced, California!
The Vista Ranch & Cellars is an ideal location for hosting weddings and special events in the Central Valley. Their spacious venue consists of 20 acres and is home to 400 year old oak trees, lavish gardens, huge green lawns and even a private lake. They can accommodate 350+ guests on their outdoor patios and eye catching grounds.
Their large event center is perfect for indoor events year round as well! The facility also has a commercial kitchen, full staff and in-house caterer.
The property features a bridal cottage in a newly redecorated 1950's ranch style house that offers privacy for the bride and bridal party. It is furnished for relaxation and socialization before the wedding and even includes a salon area!
In addition to being a one-stop-shop wedding and special events venue, The Vista recently opened up their new wine tasting room! You can experience ten varieties of The Vista Cellars wine in a historic 1910 farmhouse that has been converted into a gorgeous, rustic style tasting room. They are open to the public daily!
The Vista Ranch & Cellars will also soon be expanding and opening up a farm market that will feature local produce including fresh vine and tree ripened fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains and dairy products. Coming later this year!
