a unique country wedding weekend

The picturesque Bar SZ is nestled in the San Benito Mountains ~ accommodates a small intimate party of ten, or a big celebration of two hundred

We just spent a magical weekend at Bar SZ Ranch celebrating our daughter’s wedding. The ranch is such a perfect place to have a rustic outdoor wedding...hay bales under a big oak tree for the ceremony, arriving at the ceremony on a hay wagon, horseback riding and skeet shooting, so many animals for everyone (especially the kids) to enjoy, beautiful houses and lots of space for tent camping for all our guests. We were lucky to have a full moon and in the evenings the moon lit up those beautiful hills and fields and it was almost impossible to go inside and sleep because the silence and beauty of the environment was so enchanting. We did not want the weekend to end! Thank you Tim and Michelle, you are wonderful hosts and an inspirational couple!

Venue Space

With three separate houses and two glamping horse stalls the ranch sleeps 35 guests with ample room for RV and tent camping. 

Our honeymoon suite was once the art studio of world renowned artist Thomas Kinkade.  With a master bedroom overlooking the San Benito Mountains the room has a king sized bed and private bath.

Hold your ceremony in the barn or under a shade tree in the pasture as horses nicker in the background.  With plenty of room for your reception and no curfews or noise regulations your guests can party 'til the cows come home.

You and your guests can enjoy horseback riding, roping, hayrides, skeet and trap shooting, archery, seasonal creek walking, and hiking.  And when the sun goes down, relax as a rancher would with a BBQ, bonfire, and epic star gazing.

The Bar SZ Ranch is a venue for you to customize as you desire.  All supplies can either be brought in or ordered and delivered.

Bar SZ Featured Photographer

Hello, my name is Loïc, I am a San Francisco Wedding Photographer.

I capture weddings, without invading them.

The best moments of your wedding aren’t staged; they happen naturally, and they like to hide. You need a photographer who can blend in the background, and then pounce to get you that shot, Ninja style.
