Riata Ranch


An Inviting Escape

Welcome to Riata Ranch, a little slice of paradise nestled in the rolling hills of Santa Margarita, California. We are honored to offer Riata’s majestic beauty as a backdrop for your special occasion or relaxing escape.

Originally part of the Santa Margarita Ranch, Riata is steeped in California history. The ranch was established as part of Father Junipero Serra’s famed Mission Trail in the late 1700s and has since occupied a distinct place in the history of the Golden State.

Today, this 1,200 acre working ranch combines the same breathtaking scenery that drew settlers long ago with modern and stylish spaces designed for your entertaining and enjoyment.

One of the newest wedding venues on California’s central coast. Our Ranch House provides a luxurious and remote venue that is a short 20 minute drive from the heart of San Luis Obispo’s downtown.

We offer a variety of packages to cover all of your potential needs. Rustic weddings under one of our many large oak trees can provide you with a traditional backdrop. Looking for something new and exciting rather than going for a cliche barn wedding venue? We have our one of a kind large scale tipi site that can easily cover 200 people.
