Eddie and I danced our brains out in cozy Camarillo, smack-dab in between Thousand Oaks and Ventura as we celebrated his cousin's nuptials. It's a sweet little area with farmland as far as you can see, and somewhere in the middle of nowhere sits a quaint, colonial-style farm house that is just about the most perfect backdrop for an outdoor wedding.
The McCormick Home Ranch is an all-outdoor venue that can accommodate up to 250 for a seated dinner. They provide you with most everything you need; you bring in your own caterer and alcohol - which may sound like a lot of work, but it's such a great way to go if you're on a budget. And, aren't we all?
During cocktail hour, I escaped to explore the beautiful setting, lush gardens and found some farm favorites - their beautiful barn, plenty of chicken wire and rustic old ranch equipment.
