CAMARILLO RANCH weddings & special events

Danielle Bacon Photography

WELCOME to camarillo ranch

In the pastoral community of Camarillo, a historic mansion with peaceful, park-like grounds and a beautifully restored red barn offers a rare setting for special events - especially weddings. The product of a romantic gesture, this turn-of-the-century Queen Anne-style estate was built in 1892 by the city’s founder, Adolfo Camarillo, for his wife Isabel. The splendid heritage structure and its remaining 4.5 acres have been lovingly maintained. Today, visitors tour the ranch’s original stables, stroll through the serene gardens, and explore a living museum expertly reconstructed inside the mansion. Whether you envision a nostalgic Victorian-inspired fête or a sleek modern gala, Camarillo Ranch provides a flexible, scenic venue for a landmark celebration.

Set across our expansive historic grounds, we offer multiple outdoor ceremony sites all with their own unique features. At the East Garden, exchange vows on a manicured lawn surrounded by trees and luxuriant foliage in front of a bronze-roofed gazebo. On the opposite side of the mansion, the West Garden features its own fountain, a rose covered arch and a lush border of trees.

Beneath the scattered shade of magnificent mature trees, outdoor receptions up to 1,000 guests are held on the expansive Estate Lawn. A fabulous Moreton Bay fig tree displays an intricate root system, symbolic of a knot well tied! As the sun slowly sets, jewel toned sunsets set the scene for dinner and dancing underneath the stars.

If you prefer to bring the party inside, experience the rustic yet chic ambience of the Red Barn. Originally constructed in 1905, a recent renovation has preserved the look of the classic American structure, complete with a brick-red facade. The neutral dĂŠcor and soaring wooden rafters beg for your own elegant embellishments! Spacious enough to hold 250 for a reception and still allow room for dancing, the barn also boasts two sets of double doors and windows that can be opened to the warm evening breeze.

In 1998, the City of Camarillo established the Camarillo Ranch Foundation, Inc., as a nonprofit public benefit corporation. The City Council appointed a 15-member Board of Directors to operate the Foundation, which continues to meet the first Wednesday of every month. The Camarillo Ranch was gifted to the City of Camarillo by the Centex Corporation in 1997. Centex had acquired the property from a member of the Camarillo Family. Beginning in 1999, the Foundation initiated the renovation of the 4.5-acre property, including the 1892 Camarillo Ranch House, 1905 Mule Barn and stables, as well as the surrounding gardens. The Foundation is working to make the Camarillo Ranch a prominent Ventura County venue for community events, school field trips, weddings, private parties, and film shoots. All revenue earned from venue rentals benefits the maintenance and preservation of this historic property. Mission Statement: To preserve, restore, operate, and maintain the Camarillo Ranch as a historic site in partnership with our public and private sectors, on a self-sustaining basis; to foster its place in the rich history of California; to transform it into a focal point of the community for education, enrichment, and enjoyment; and to exhibit our diverse history and culture.
