venue alert: camarillo's mccormick home ranch.

One of my best work gal pals just got engaged! Hooray. So engaging to talk to the newly engaged, isn't it? As I bask in her glow and toss around venue ideas, wedding blog links and Snippet & Ink inspiration boards, I was reminded of a beautiful ranch just a bit north of us that we visited for a family wedding at the end of the year.

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.
It made me day dream of our wedding day. Can we do it again?
