If you’re looking for a wedding venue with a gorgeous mountain and lake-view setting, Conestoga Ranch is your place. For your Conestoga Ranch wedding, you’ll receive outstanding service and delicious food (the best part of it all, am I right?!). All weddings hosted at the ranch are required to book the entire ranch for a two-night minimum to ensure privacy and the freedom to celebrate under the stars well into the night. Conestoga Ranch availability fills up fast, so reach out to them here to reserve your dates! I had the awesome opportunity to speak with Chelsey from the ranch and get some answers to questions that you’ll run into as you’re booking your wedding at Conestoga Ranch! Let’s get to them, shall we?
