Central Coast Ranch Wedding Venues - Flying Caballos
The Central Coast has become a ideal location for many of our couples to plan their perfect wedding day. And why not? The picturesque landscape, beautiful weather, and charming San Luis Obispo town is unlike any other. We love how most weddings on the Central Coast are outdoors to show off the lush vineyards, endless hills, countless oak trees and open fields. Honestly, it’s pretty unreal and that’s a huge part of why we love what we do. Getting to photograph in this type of beauty with awesome couples is truly inspiring. Over the years, we’ve had the opportunity to enjoy so many different venues, so here’s a list of some of the gorgeous Central Coast ranch wedding venues that our couples have loved!
