Wonderful experience

My husband and I got married here on Feb 10, 2024. I would highly recommend this venue. The staff were incredible and very responsive from pre booking to the wedding night. It was seamless. I had zero stress on the day and everything was taken care of. 10/10

Wonderful Venue

We had our wedding at the Cochrane Ranchehouse back in October! This venue was just STUNNING- and the fall colors were the cherry on top. The property had multiple outdoor locations for beautiful photos. The venue was free the day before the wedding so they accommodated an early set up and the rehearsal. Kattie was the contact person for organizing all the details and answering any questions- she was wonderful to work with and was very responsive. The staff who helped us unload the liquor and clean up were friendly, accommodating, and helpful. If you are looking for a rustic & romantic venue, you would not go wrong having your wedding at the Cochrane Ranchehouse!

Beautiful venue!

We had our wedding at the Cochrane Ranchehouse on August 12, 2022. The sales coordinator was always professional and prompt in responses throughout the planning process, answering any questions that I had big or small.
We were able to set up and decorate the day before the wedding which a huge relief. We were let in by the Ranchehouse staff and the staff member helping us was extremely friendly and checking on us if we needed help with anything throughout set up.
The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous inside and out, and our pictures turned out amazing. The background is absolutely breathtaking and there are many areas to take beautiful photos outdoors.
Not only is the venue beautiful but the price was fair as well. I would highly recommend this venue!

Beautiful venue with affordable options

The team at The RancheHouse were very responsive to all questions asked throughout the planning process. The venue was set up as expected and fit our needs perfectly. The planning coordinator can be a bit challenging to communicate with at times but at least did what was expected. Overall, would recommend!

Excellent Venue

This venue was excellent for both a ceremony and reception. It has excellent photo opportunities nearby as well so it eliminates the stress of having to move around during your day. Kattie and the staff were amazing to work with. Everything went smoothly with their help.

Stunning Locale and Supportive Team

We booked the venue for our son's wedding dinner in August 2020, an year in advance. Our liaison with Kattie Pochapsky during the intervening period and especially as the event approached nearer was very good. She kept guiding us on all the RancheHouse contract clauses and requirements so that we were not caught unaware. She changed the Floor Plans a number of times to accommodate our preferences. Manager Kristie Bell was following it throughout. She was there to oversee the preparations on the evening of the event. Paul, Patti, and Alec were at hand and tirelessly did whatever was in their capacity to help us streamline the event. Our sincere thanks to all of them.
The fabulous locale made it a memorable evening for all the guests. Almost none of them had been to the RancheHouse before and were absolutely delighted to discover it.

Amazing Experience!

We got married at the Cochrane Ranchehouse May 1, 2021 in the heat of the pandemic. There were many changes including 1 postponement during our wedding planning process, but the Ranchehouse staff were unreal to work with. They were understanding, reasonable and went above and beyond to make sure our wedding turned out so special. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a rustic venue with gorgeous views! Big thanks to Kattie and the rest of the Ranchehouse staff!

We were privileged to have our wedding at this beautiful venue this winter. Kattie made things easy for us while we were planning from overseas and the whole event went so smoothly, start to finish! Staff were helpful and quick to respond to questions, Gourmet 2 Go created excellent food and Kattie helped us make sure everything happened! Highly recommend this gorgeous venue

Event Centre Sales Associate

Hi! I'm Kattie, the Event Centre Sales Associate for the Cochrane RancheHouse.

I book weddings at the lovely Cochrane RancheHouse and plan the annual Cochrane Bridal Fair. I love meeting with engaged couples to witness their love and excitement for one another. The best part of my job is helping couples bring their wedding vision to life with our extensive amenities.

I have lived in Cochrane with my husband since 2014. We have a mini heeler named Copper and a young daughter that keep us busy. I love living in Cochrane due to it's small town feel and gorgeous landscape including the Cochrane Ranche, ample walking paths, and proximity to the mountains.
