As soon as me and my [now] wife stepped foot onto the property we knew we had found the perfect spot for our wedding. The location is far enough away from the city that it feels out in the country (and doesn't get the loud city noise) but is close enough that our guests were able to venture to downtown afterwards. The venue is gorgeous in every way and has the most caring and professional individuals running it. Anytime we had a question about decorations or things we could or could not do/bring to the venue, Chris and Katie were an email away and always very prompt with their response. Our guests had nothing but great things to say about the venue and loved taking pictures with the longhorns during cocktail hour. This is hands down the best place for a true Austin, TX wedding. -Blaire Mason
Chris and his team at Ranch Austin were AMAZING. They're prompt at answering emails and we were able to go to the venue for planning purposes many times. They're super flexible. My favorite thing about this venue is that it's so spacious. For our Oct 2017 wedding, we used the outdoor altar, the indoor ballroom and the outdoor reception space. Our guests had plenty of things to do and places to be, and it felt so seamless shuffling everyone around. I adore this venue and it's so close to a ton of Bee Caves amenities. Highly, highly recommend. -Sheyna Webster
Ranch Austin is a beautiful venue with great family roots. The owner, Chris and his family all do a great job at maintaining the property with care and communicating both kindly and clearly. The venue has several options for the ceremony site and can accommodate a large party. Our ceremony was by the windmill. There is already an arch there with bench seating and some flowers. Our wedding was small at about 50 people and our guests seemed to enjoy being able to utilize the indoor and the outdoor spaces. The string lights are beautiful. It's great that they are already installed as part of the outdoor venue space. The cows were a very cool touch as part of the atmosphere. I can't say enough good things. There are definitely a lot of options and privacy since they honor one event per day with several spaces to utilize during that day. -Charlene Donovan
Ranch Austin is a beautiful venue with a great family behind it! From our first visit there we knew we had found our venue! And the longhorns were a great touch! It was perfect and can't thank everyone at Ranch Austin for helping with everything along the way! And all our guests couldn't stop raving about how perfect our venue was! Highly recommend! -Gabriella Huerta
My husband and I just got married at Ranch Austin and we couldn’t have picked a better venue. The location is far enough from the city to have that all-to-yourself feel, but still close enough that we were able to stay in and experience downtown Austin. Ranch Austin had everything I was looking for in a venue: options for an outdoor ceremony and reception, gorgeous lawn and reception spaces, and that Texas vibe with longhorns hanging out so close to the party. It was absolutely amazing and even our vendors who had never worked there before kept saying how it was one of the most beautiful venues they’ve ever seen. We are a military couple stationed on the east coast so I was nervous about planning everything so far away but Chris and Katie were always extremely accommodating and responsive whenever I asked questions and made sure that the day of went off without a hitch. Everyone LOVED the venue and we were more than pleased! Thank you so much Ranch Austin for making our wedding day perfect! -Cori Barboza
My husband and I recently got married out at Ranch Austin. It was absolutely beautiful. Katie and Chris are extremely accommodating and made our day perfect. It rained early in the morning the day of our wedding and Chris was out cleaning off the patio area so that everything would perfect! The venue is the perfect setting for a hill country wedding without having to travel out of Austin. The options are endless for they type of ceremony you prefer. We used the windmill sight for our ceremony and the pictures turned out amazing! The backdrop of the Longhorns were also the perfect touch for our rustic wedding. I highly recommend Ranch Austin! -Lindsay Starkjohann
Ranch Austin is SPECTACULAR in every way! The property is absolutely gorgeous, with welcoming Longhorns:). It is incredibly spacious and so well planned out! Our daughter and her groom had the most glorious outside wedding ceremony, with an indoor cocktail hour, and the most fabulous outside dinner reception! The set-up and options are endless at Ranch Austin! The photography and videography opportunities are endless, as well! The bridal and groom suites are charming! Chris and his family were so very helpful and reliable...to have a lovely family that supported us was priceless! -Barbara Rachner
I fell in love with Ranch Austin venue when I photographed JC and Stephanie's wedding. The day was sheer perfection as the couple were married under the gorgeous arch and windmill. One spectacular sunset with gorgeous views added to the true Hill Country experience. The longhorns grazed in the nearby pasture as guests enjoyed cocktail hour on the spacious outdoor reception area. As the sunset the gorgeous lights trickled in the trees and lit the dance floor. Such an honor to have been able to capture a wedding here. Highly recommend for any couple looking for a true Texas wedding experience. -AL Gawlik Photography
I fell in love with this venue the second I drove through their property and saw the longhorns. This venue represented who we are as a couple so I didn't have to seek any further than Ranch Austin. I never had an issue with anything. They took care of everything and were readily available if I needed anything. We live in Colorado and my husband didn't see the venue till we came for the rehearsal dinner. On wedding day he told me I did a great job picking the place. Even from out of state Chris and Katie were so helpful. I loved that you have options in case it rains and you don't have to come up with a plan B. I got so many compliments on the venue and the day was just perfect. Vanessa Graves
This venue was absolutely perfect! It had everything we needed- a beautiful bridal suite AND groom's cabin (separate from the main building which was really cool). An amazing spot for the ceremony with beautifully strung lights that lit up the area at night and made it the perfect setting. we did the reception inside because we couldn't predict the weather. Our guests were both inside and outside (at the outdoor bar). The staff at Ranch Austin were very informative and proactive about keeping us informed about upcoming payments or things we needed to do. We couldn't have asked for a better venue and staff to work with!
Absolutely fell in love with Ranch Austin the second I saw it. It is a hidden gem and hands down the best wedding venue in Austin. Katie was always quick to respond to any questions we had (and we had a lot). Can’t say enough great things about Ranch Austin. It will always have a dear place in my heart. -Elizabeth Alper
What a wonderful venue. The wedding could not have been lovelier! Chris and his staff made every part of the evening wonderful.
Thank you again. -Leslie Ray
I love Ranch Austin! The venue provided the perfect scenery and ambiance for our wedding. We received compliment after compliment regarding the gorgeous venue. Chris and Katie were amazing both before and on the day of our wedding. Thank you for making our day magical and memorable! -Celina Mizcles Stubbs
My husband JC and I were married here and the venue was nothing short of perfect. They were so accommodating as we had to change our wedding venue just 3 weeks from our wedding date and they made the transition flawless. In all honesty, I am so glad we had to change venues because having our wedding at Ranch Austin was so much more than what we could have imagined. Indoor and outdoor venue, flexible and friendly staff, absolutely gorgeous scenery - it doesn't get much better than that. Thank you Ranch Austin and your team for sharing your wonderful space with us. -Stephanie Sabo
I got married here on 11/12 and the venue and staff are amazing! Chris is so helpful with everything and Katie was always prompt with the emails. All my guests loved how gorgeous the venue was! I can't wait to see all my pictures from the photographer. Plus the longhorns were friendly and were included in a bunch of pictures. -Kristina Smith Reinhold
Beautiful venue that provided a unique setting for our corporate event! Our guests loved being so close to downtown Austin, yet feeling like they were in the Texas Hill Country. Don't let the word "Ranch" fool you. While you do feel like you are on a ranch with green fields, beautiful oak trees, a windmill, longhorns, and no evidence that you are in the city, the building itself is very elegant. One of our engaged employees even left wanting to have her own wedding at Ranch Austin. We loved the fact that hosting our corporate seminar at Ranch Austin rather than a hotel ballroom meant that our catering options were endless. I highly recommend Ranch Austin to anyone wanting to add a special touch to their corporate seminar, client happy hour or other corporate party!
My son got married in April. Ranch Austin was the perfect venue. Melissa allowed us to come look over the facility with the caterer months before the wedding. I was amazed at how beautiful it was. The hill country at it's best. Windmill, lush pasture and long horns grazing. Beautiful and that was January when we toured. When it came to the rehearsal on the night before the wedding, it was raining so we set up to practice inside. The venue helped us organize the reception tables so that it could be set up so that we wouldn't have to move tables if the ceremony had to be inside. About 4pm on the day of the wedding, the rain stopped and the sun broke through. The venue helped us put out chairs outside and quick rehearsal for an outside wedding at 6:30. I totally recommend this space for any hill country themed wedding. -Shelia A.
Having my wedding at Ranch Austin was a dream come true! The owner and other employee's of Ranch Austin were always extremely helpful and accommodating. They always worked with us to make sure our wedding day was perfect! The features of the property are 5 stars as well! The outdoor space worked extremely well for my wedding. Having that space available in addition to the indoor space was the highlight. We had our reception inside, since it was still a little hot out. Many of the folks that do not enjoy dancing were able to hang out outside while playing some lawn games we had set up. We got so many compliments after the wedding was over about how much everyone loved the venue and enjoyed their time there as a wedding guest. I would recommend this venue to anyone and everyone! -Erin Gutierrez
What a true gem! I personally have never been to a more beautiful venue ever. It has rustic elegance in a picturesque setting. A 5 star rating is not high enough! -Pesci Wedding
I can't say enough great things about Ranch Austin. My son's wedding was here at the beginning of October. The staff was amazing to work with and the beauty of the venue is unbelievable. It is so beautiful, as a matter of fact, very few decorations were needed. We would recommend Ranch Austin without hesitation for your wedding venue! -Jeanette McDowell Wold
Beautiful venue for weddings or special occasions! Phenomenal layout with natural beauty at it's finest! -Eddie Trejo
My name is Gabriella and am very pleased to write this review. I have been out to Ranch Austin a handful of times. After researching online wedding venues this was the first my husband and I visited. It was also our last. We immediately fell in love with the authentic Texas land. It is an extremely rare and special property. The location is just enough outside of Austin where the feeling is open and peaceful. Mainly what gives the 5 stars are the people there. You couldn't ask for a better team to work with. The owner and staff are honest and accommodating. Just like everyone else we had tons of compliments from our guests and vendors. Thank you again, Ranch Austin! -Gabriella Askew
