If you’re looking for a romantic getaway that’s close to Los Angeles but feels entire worlds away, you won’t find anything more fitting than the Calamigos Guest Ranch. Nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains, it’s also no wonder why this picturesque property has become a coveted wedding venue. The private bungalows and cottages, set within 200 oak-filled acres, offer guests a place to decompress and reconnect with nature. Built in 1947 and family operated ever since, this rustic gem features a vineyard and organic garden that grows strawberries and herbs. Beyond exploring their three pools and five restaurants, you can make a quick trip (twelve-minute shuttle to be exact) to their five-acre beach club for all manner of beach activities.
