Up the Driveway…
Sparks Ranch Resort Outdoor Weekend Weddings Private Resort
With "The Ultimate Wedding" package (Three Days) you and your guests will enjoy the exclusivity, beauty and amenities of having a private resort for your weekend wedding event. You and your bridal party arrive on Friday afternoon and prepare for one of the most exciting events in your life!

Sparks Ranch Resort is your resort now!
The rehearsal dinner, ceremony, reception, after-hours party and lodging all take place here at Sparks Ranch Resort. From Friday evening through Sunday morning you host your 'best party ever!'

Your Guest Quarters

You and your guests are free to wander over ten acres of "Nature's Magic". Meander down stone paths to a romantic gazebo overlooking meadows and creeks.

Breathe in the fresh air as you stroll through the shimmering shadows of the towering oak trees… some are 300 years old!
Sparks Ranch Resort was formerly an ancient Indian dwelling ground. Take note of the old grinding stone as you watch the wild quail dart through the field.

Admire the sculptured gardens and the waterfall created from rocks quarried here on the property.


Fun in the Sun!
Settle those "pre-wedding butterflies" with a relaxing outdoor poolside massage.

Soak and swim in our year-round heated, ozone-purified Swim/Spa… nestled underneath the shade of the towering pine trees.

Hook your iPod up to our indoor/outdoor surround-sound speaker system and listen to your favorite music while splashing in our salt water swimming lagoon with family and friends!

Friday Evening… the "Rehearsal Dinner"!

The party begins! After sundown, the Waterfall Gardens and Cabana are transformed with magical lighting as the sound of crickets fills the night air.

The Rehearsal Dinner is an informal barbeque event. No "pomp and circumstance"… just plain fun!!

The Cabana at Night

Rehearsal Dinner
The Poolside Cabana is a great place for indoor/outdoor entertainment. It has all the perfect party amentities… professional bar, tournament-sized billiard table, outdoor area for dancing!

Many bridal parties have said the Rehearsal Dinner was "the funnest part of the weekend". Relaxed and low-key. No tight-fitting formal clothes. Delicious barbeque and casual dining. Laughing, dancing and splashing in the pool.

Saturday … the "Big Day" arrives!

After brunch everyone gets ready as the rest of the wedding guests and relatives start to arrive!

The Wedding Ceremony unfolds outdoors under a canopy of centuries-old oak trees. A stone path leads to the wedding altar. The guests are seated under the trees in white chairs.
