Bride and Groom getting married at a rustic wedding venue in Oklahoma.

Dresses, and flowers, and catering, oh my. When it comes to planning a wedding, sometimes the details can overwhelm the larger decisions – and sometimes they work together in perfect harmony. While we love the specifics (more seating cards and dessert table décor, please) we’ve also found that it’s typically easier to make the detail decisions when you have the primary facts pinned down. And today, we’re talking about one of those primary facts – venues. Venues in Oklahoma, to be specific. And while this state has its share of beautiful urban and suburban venues, including the gorgeous Oak Tree Country Club and Cobblestone Creek Golf Club, today we want to focus on Oklahoma wedding venues with a rustic touch: ranches.

Tatanka Ranch

Located less than an hour away from both Oklahoma City and Tulsa, Tatanka Ranch’s 1,000 acres of practically untouched Oklahoma countryside are all wedding-ready rolling hills and western style accommodations. Whether you, your soon-to-be, and your favorite people are planning on using the ranch for your wedding day alone or making a destination weekend out of the event, you’ll be surrounded by the property’s natural beauty for the duration of your adventure. Couples can choose from a variety of outdoor settings, including a recently planted vineyard, for ceremonies, and the property’s barn makes for a sweet indoor reception location.

The Barn at Vive Le Ranch

Although not technically on a ranch (The Barn is instead located in the heart of Tulsa) this Oklahoma wedding location maintains every ounce of the charm and rustic appeal that you’d expect from a property covered in cattle – with a touch of French influence. The vintage log barn itself is a wedding venue to die for, and the lake, cottage, and grounds are a beautiful ceremony and photo backdrop. Casual, simple, or upscale elegance, this venue is pretty on its own and complementary of many styles of wedding décor.
