Wedding Venue: Esperanza Ranch

Located near Oklahoma City, Esperanza Ranch has become a premier wedding venue for those looking for a barn venue surrounded by exquisite and tranquil outdoor views. Named after the Spanish word for “hope” or “expectation,” the ranch boasts 50 acres of rolling countryside with a large, rustic 18th-century barn perfect for any wedding or event. No city lights, sounds, or buildings will trespass onto the grounds creating a setting perfect for the dream wedding accompanied by vibrant sunsets and starry night skies.

Earnest’s Wedding Day

Anna and Josh chose this Oklahoma City gem for their gorgeous wedding. Their 200-person May wedding received fantastically cool weather for the reception at the Esperanza Ranch’s wedding venue. They decorated the barn and surrounding countryside with whimsical decor that blended spring colors and lively stylings. After the couple walked down the aisle with their eight bridesmaids and seven groomsmen, they transitioned into a beautiful outdoor setting hosting a salad and pasta buffet for them and their guests to enjoy. You see the guests’ joy as they conversed with each other and celebrated the newly married couple through toasts, speeches, and eventually dancing.

Once the dancing began, many different sounds were heard, but it kicked off with the bride and groom’s first dance to “I’ll Be” by Edwin McCain. But Anna’s dad had an equally great showing during the father-daughter dance to Rascal Flatts’ “My Wish.” These memorable moments received company from cake cutting and a few “easter eggs.” At the reception, guests noticed a random cactus perfectly placed to add to the theme despite its enigmatic presence. This cactus’s fame will live in infamy for the couple’s wedding memories as it made an appearance in their reception picture. The story behind this plant’s positively preposterous presence is a connection to Anna’s The Sims gameplay and the continuous request by her groom to place a cactus in any of her houses within the game. So, the fun bride decided to bring those moments into their wedding day with a real cactus for their first home together, pleasantly surprising Josh.

The wedding honestly had a gorgeous and festive decoration that perfectly matched the ranch wedding venue. Oklahoma City is the only place to find such a great wedding venue like this one. A characteristic confirmed by the bride’s mother, Carla Felix, in her comments, “Thank you so much for all you guys did! The venue is off the chain perfect!! XXOO.” Such a wondrous evening is available for any couple looking for this type of wedding venue, but get started soon. The ranch’s fame is growing by the day and with each event is hosts.
