Elegant Weddings at The Ranch at Laguna Beach Wedding Venue

History of the Venue

The Ranch at Laguna Beach wedding venue is known for its lush landscaping and beautiful greenery, making it an ideal spot for celebrations during the spring and summer months. The property has been around since 1871 when George Thurston and his family first settled here to build their homestead. It has changed hands many times since then – but not until entrepreneur Mark Christy discovered that one of his beloved childhood haunts was for sale.

Mark Christy purchased the property in 2007 and began working on revitalizing it into what it is today: a gorgeous golf course with beautiful landscaping and a historic building that hosts weddings year-round.
