About The Condor's Nest Ranch
How We Do Weddings:
We are an Old California Ranch, called "The Condor's Nest Ranch", located in North San Diego, Pala, California. We are a small family run Wedding Venue. We enjoy sharing our Vintage Cowboy and Indian Decorated 6,000 Sq. Ft. Glass and Adobe Ranch Style Home and 2 bedroom Cottage (originally the bunkhouse) on a 15 acre Property. We enjoy Weddings, as we get to meet with the couples and their families and friends. It's a fun process, and quite low stress and low key, which allows everyone to enjoy themselves and use the property as their own, while we bring in all of the components to put on an Incredible, Magical, Wedding!
The Ranch started way back in 1862 and the Ranch House was later redesigned by Frank Lloyd Wright's Senior Apprentice Frederick (Fritz) Liebhardt, in 1962. It took 4 years to build by the famous Weir Brothers, and was finished in 1966. The Ranch House is built in the shape of a cross. It's truly unique and very special!
We try to keep the process very simple. We have an incredible team, who truly enjoys each and every Wedding! Our couples get to choose which Caterer they would like (included in their Wedding Package Price) for their Wedding Reception Dinner, at the time of our "Tasting" done in February each year, prior to the Weddings for that year. Other vendors will be at the Tasting in February as well, so our couples can find everyone they need at the Tasting if necessary! There will be photographers, videographers, bakeries, florists, etc..
We are an "All-Inclusive" Wedding Venue, and we include just about everything! The Ceremony & Reception Site; (completely private, no multiple Weddings for us, just 1 per weekend!). We have a full staff that does the Set-up and take-down / clean-up and we include all of the Wedding Furniture: We have Round Tables or Long, Gold Chiavari Chairs, White folding chairs with pad, we've got White Linens, Silver Flatware, Mismatched China, and we bring in for you: the Bar Service *YES! a Full Open Bar for 5 hours, including the champagne toast, the Glassware, and 5 hours of consecutive drinking; professional bar staff; we include the DJ / Master of Ceremonies for 5 hours and 1 sound system, he has the microphone, etc.! We include a day of Coordinator for you to run the day of festivities. She will meet with you ahead of time to go over all of the details so on day of you are just relaxing and enjoying each moment.
