Chetna + Miah: Two Cultures One Love

The June 2018 wedding of Chetna and Miah was a bright and vibrant blend of culture and tradition with a romantic modern twist. Their story of love and world travel culminated in a beautiful two-day wedding featuring two glorious ceremonies. The Friday night ceremony was intimate, surrounded by just close family and friends. Chetna chose a beautiful white lace dress and Miah wore a dashing grey suit. The first wedding affectionately described as their “Love American Style” wedding was sweet and intimate. The couple’s second wedding was full of tradition, bold color, and family. The ceremony took place beneath a mandap canopy where the families performed a traditional Indian wedding ceremony. Both Chetna and Miah dressed in vibrant, traditional attire and jewelry, paired with beautiful floral garlands. Chetna and her bridesmaids all were adorned with intricate hand-drawn henna art on their hands and feet. At the conclusion of the ceremony, the party was moved to our Historic Barn for dancing, food and a little bit of karaoke.

Megan and Teddy’s Halter Ranch wedding reins supreme

Megan and Teddy celebrated their wedding on a gorgeous spring day, May 12, 2018. Megan, a highly sought after equine veterinarian and acupuncturist, and Teddy, a famed bareback rodeo cowboy, shared an instant connection after meeting in the corrals at the Salinas Rodeo. Their special day at Halter Ranch commenced with a beautiful outdoor ceremony where the couple exchanged their vows in front of the wooden ‘Halter Altar’ that was adorned with romantic and delicate floral arrangements. Afterward, the newlyweds enjoyed a relaxed photoshoot at the ranch’s most scenic photography locations followed by photos with their entire wedding party in front of the historic Victorian homestead and throughout the lush, green barnyard. The reception design included intricate touches showing Megan and Teddy’s combined equine passion, such as the golden rodeo trophies adorning the bar, reception tables named for the couple’s horses, and a skillfully designed groom’s cake fashioned after Teddy’s championship belt buckle. At the end of the evening, the couple and their guests enjoyed a champagne toast, indulged in cactus cupcakes, and danced the night away under the glittering chandelier and twinkling lights on the Silo Barn Patio.

A wonderful wine country wedding

Bradley and Rodrigo both admittedly fell in love with one another on their first date. Based in North Hollywood, they frequently visited Paso Robles while dating to explore wine country and quickly became avid fans of Halter Ranch. The couple chose to hold a pre-ceremony cocktail hour on the Silo Barn patio, sipping glasses of rosé while basking in the early autumnal sunshine. The wedding reception was held in the expansive Historic Barn, allowing for a large dance floor where guests danced the night away.

Summer, Silos and Sweet Romance

Shauna and Scott celebrated their union on September 16, 2017 and were the first wedding to be held in our new Silo Barn venue. Halter Ranch is one of Shauna’s favorite wineries in Paso Robles and the venue was the ideal choice for the couple’s rustic and stylish outdoor celebration. The couple prepared for the day in the comforts of the bridal suite and groom’s lounge and enjoyed an extensive photoshoot throughout the barnyard, under the covered bridge, and around the ranch property. Guests arrived at 3 p.m. and were greeted with a glass of rosé at the entrance to the ceremony site. The ceremony, a stunning affair, included 10 bridesmaids dressed in shades of lavender and plum which perfectly complimented Shauna’s elegant florals. The reception was held under the stars on the Silo Barn patio with the rustic blush of the silos veneer as a striking backdrop to the wedding party’s head table. Dancing and merriment continued late into the evening culminating in the newlyweds’ glittering sendoff by guests holding mason jars filled with lights.

Halter Ranch Vineyard Debuts New Summer Concert Series

Halter Ranch Vineyard is excited for the lineup of its new complimentary Summer Concert Series, starting this Friday, May 19, where guests can pair award-winning wines with an impressive range of local music.

Guests can enjoy this series, which takes place one Friday night a month from 5.30 p.m. to 7.30 p.m., from the Tasting Room Patio, while taking in spectacular views of rolling hills and vineyards. To spice up the experience, food will be available for purchase by a different local purveyor each month.

Halter Ranch Tasting Room Manager Tony Quealy said the Summer Concert Series is something we have had in mind for some time. “When we built our new Tasting Room we had in mind these types of events. We hope patrons come and experience the relaxed ambiance of our patio, enjoy the music, wine, food, and beautiful views.”

The concert lineup includes:

Friday, May 19 – Beyond the Bridge (food by Torres Family Catering)

Friends Sam Keating Flynn, Kevin Finnesey, Christiana Newcomb, Aaron Kroeger met through music, bonded over music, and now play music together. Beyond the Bridge provides a lively collection of covers and original music.


Friday, June 16 – REWINED (food by Hurricane Kitchen)

Vocal duo Emily Smith and Rolf Gehrung deliver their craft effortlessly. Singing their favorite Country, Rock, and R&B songs old and new, REWINED is sure to transport you to the time that you first heard that song. Hailing from the Central Coast Wine Region, REWINED has established themselves as the must-see acoustic duo. Think of a cross between Bryan Adams meets Kid Rock singing with Sheryl Crow & Colbie Caillat in a folk/country/r&b sorta way and that’s REWINED.


Friday, July 14 – Kenny Taylor Band (food by What the Truck)

Kenny Taylor was born in the heart of Minnesota but grew his sound out of California making him one of the industries best-kept secrets! Bringing his songs to the West Coast and captivating audiences with his honest and infectious original music. The Kenny Taylor Band was formed in 2012 and includes Central California natives Chris Broemmelsiek, Albert Sanudo Jr. and Mr. Leigh Lossing.

His ability and style bridges generations! Being inspired early on by artists like John Lennon, Dave Matthews, and Ben Gibbard and having an intense immersion in loads of 90s pop.


Friday, August 25 – Bear Market Riot (food by Hurricane Kitchen)

In 2014 Kirk Nordby and Nick Motil met at a songwriter showcase in San Luis Obispo, CA. Over a bowl of gumbo the two conspired to busk together at the Baywood-Los Osos Farmer’s Market. Upon agreement that two beards are better than one, they became Bear Market Riot.

Bear Market Riot is Power-Folk Americana from the California Central Coast. A duo blending everything from folk to R&B into an infectious sound that could only come from two bearded men playing seven instruments while keeping the dance floor satisfied. Nordby and Motil captivate audiences of all-ages with tight harmonies, catchy originals, and an arsenal of high-energy originally interpreted covers.


Friday, September 15 – Burning, Bad & Cool (food by Grilled Cheese Incident)

Burning, Bad & Cool is a vocal oriented trio that performs southern fried soul, gospel and blues music dipped in thick, sweet harmony. Here is a band with two great lead vocalists and the perfect third complimentary voice. First, ‘Burning’ James Scoolis brings his soulful vocal style and slings lead, slide and rhythm guitar playing on his Stratocaster. Second, there is Jimmy “Cool” Conroy on his hybrid Taylor acoustic with his incredible deep baritone voice. Jim is so exceptional that he has been referred to as “the voice” in the press. And finally, there is “Bad” Billy Baxmeyer on bass and vocals. These three voices blend so beautifully that you can not help but take notice.
