Frequently Asked Questions
How do I Save The Date?
We require you that you sign a contract in order to Save The Date and provide us with a $5000 non-refundable deposit (which is applied against your contract amount).
I would like to take a tour of the private estate of Luna Bella Ranch, how do I do that?
Luna Bella Ranch is a private estate and ranch. Hence, tours/visits are by appointment only. You can book the appointment online. The tours last approximately 60-minutes to show you the private estate/ranch and allow time to answer all your questions.
Can we bring our own alcohol?
Yes, if provided to our third-party preferred bartender which we require that you use if alcohol will be served at your wedding. Our preferred bartender will work with you to select bottles of wine, champagne or beer to be served during the reception and/or Appetizer and Cocktail Hour. Bartender services during a private event typically cost $100/hour with a 4-hour minimum. Save a ton of money by buying your own alcohol at a discount store (we recommend BevMo) instead of many bar packages at other venues often ranging from $30-$40 per person. Hard alcohol is not allowed on the property. We only allow beer, wine and champagne to be served unless an exception for a signature drink has been discussed prior to contract signing. If the couple desires, we may compromise, and allow one mixed signature drink per person during the first hour of cocktail hour.
Note: We highly recommend the use of alternative transportation if alcohol will be served at the wedding due to unfamiliar country roads for guests and to keep everyone safe. We recommend First Student (school buses) for transportation of your guests from area hotels. Not only is the ride on the bus fun, it is all part of the experience of being together with friends and family, and being safe, on your wedding day.
Do we have to use your DJ?
Yes. We have two preferred DJ companies and are confident that we can provide a DJ that fits your style.
What happens in inclement weather or if it rains?
We are an outdoor private estate and ranch. If you desire to have your wedding or reception in our forest, we hold weddings in that setting from May till mid-November. If it is forecasted to rain on your wedding day, we will assist you in renting a tent and the location for the wedding would be held on our Upper Lawn, a beautiful 8000 square foot space with easy access and gorgeous views of Luna Bella Ranch and the hills behind. The responsibility for any charges for the tent rental lies with the client. Depending on what type of tent you want and the size determines the rental cost. Each quote will depend on your individual circumstances.
What time must the wedding end?
Riverside County noise ordinance requires outdoor events end no later than 10:00 p.m.
