Couples planning a wedding start thinking of a ranch wedding to run away from the stress normally associated with urban venues and destination. Also, a wedding can hardly be more romantic than held in a vast open space, with big sky and majestic mountains in the background. There are ranches that offer wedding venues all over the country. Most are celebrating the American West, with the typical Western décor, often providing a replica of a Western town. But many ranches today offer luxury wedding destinations that take advantage of beautiful landscapes without the western vibe. A barn or a historic ranch house can be decorated in any style the wedding couple desires, luxurious and romantic or simple and rustic. What makes ranch wedding so attractive is so much open space and being able to do the ceremony and all other activities outdoors, in lush gardens, on the paved patios or on the banks of tranquil lakes. The ranch venues also make unforgettable wedding photos.
