Imagine being married under the redwood tree the Stows received in 1873 for their first anniversary or on the steps of the Carpenter Gothic mansion beside it. Imagine strolling to Lake Los Carneros for a private moment or tossing your bouquet beneath the grandest bird of paradise your guests have ever seen. Imagine your wedding in the lovely gardens of Rancho La Patera. The gardens are perfect for events from intimate weddings to large receptions. You design your celebration, and we provide the most beautiful and serene place to make your history… The possibilities are endless. This charming, historic venue is available for daytime (until sunset) events. We do not allow events past sunset.
