Fora’s Take

The Sea Ranch, California is such a special destination for so many reasons. It is a great place if you are in the Bay Area and are looking for a weekend getaway to somewhere we could find tranquility. We could not have stumbled upon a more perfect place. The Sea Ranch is a picturesque, 10-mile stretch right on the Pacific Coast Highway. The community is located in Sonoma County, right on the border of Mendocino county. The sheer beauty of this spot captivated us and we decided a few months later to have our wedding at The Sea Ranch Chapel. This is a perfect spot for a getaway to relax in nature and enjoy unique architectural aesthetic. It is truly our “happy place."
