    Cricket Hill Ranch - So Much More Than a Venue

    On a cold and rainy January 2018 day with a list of 10+ venues to visit, we set out to Dripping Springs, the wedding capital of Texas. The wedding date was March 2019 and the venue selection needed to be made soon. Halfway through the list, it was clear there wouldn’t be a need to continue after meeting April and touring her property. She was genuine and her place reflected this.
    For my daughter, the bride, an extraordinary venue for an outdoor dream wedding was needed. We’d seen several venues that could provide a great location, but it was clear CHR would provide much more. Here, a true interest in her vision would be made a priority.
    For me, mother of the bride, her vision was important, but equally important was a venue that would demonstrate care, interest, expertise, and professionalism. It was critical that this be more than a wedding day; CHR would provide the wedding experience for not only the bride and groom, but also the wedding party, family, and guests. CHR exceeded our expectations - it provided peace of mind.
    The property is spectacular for a ceremony
    The ability for the bride-to-be and her girls to stay on-site the night before was beyond convenient
    The spacious, well-designed bridal suite accommodations for the bridal party, and hair and makeup artists was everything
    The spacious room for the groom and his best guys was so much more than a room – it was exceptional, allowing for plenty of space for dressing, visiting, a game of pool, and celebratory toasts.
    April and the CHR staff met every one of our needs and then some.
    Working with Aubrey, our coordinator, was such a pleasure. She listened, and never tired of our list of thoughts, wants, and needs. She continually offered valuable input. Throughout the year of planning, she always made herself available and was quick to offer exactly what was needed….advice, input, and more importantly, honesty. She was instrumental in my daughter’s vision becoming a reality for everyone to become a part of.
    The once in a lifetime wedding weekend experience went off without a hitch. And we, including many of our wedding guests, made two new friends in Dripping Springs.

    Evelyn,
    OMG! Look at those pictures! I mean, so beautiful, thank you for posting. We are so grateful to have been a part of such a wonderful event. We just can't thank you enough for kind words and the validation that all the little details really do matter, so thank you. We will miss working with you and hope that we get the chance again. If not, you'll just have to come by for a quick visit.
    Love, Love, Love,
    April

    Superb experience!!!

    Let me begin by saying I can not rate Cricket Hill Ranch high enough! Upon initially meeting April and viewing the venue, I knew I found my dream location for my wedding, and also a host that made me feel comfortable and relaxed every step of the way. April provided me an option for a wedding planner she works with, Aubrey, and that was the another great investment I made for the big day! Those two women know what they are doing and execute everything flawlessly! Not only is the venue itself beautiful, but all of the staff are friendly and helpful and make you feel at ease.
    My heels broke the morning of my wedding and April’s husband knew exactly what to do and fixed them on-site 🙌🏻
    If you’re looking for a top notch beautiful hill country experience, Cricket Hill Ranch is the way to go!

    I am officially forever in love with Cricket Hill Ranch. April is the owner of the venue and she is a rock star! As a planner it makes my life so much easier when not only the venue is awesome but the owner is as well! We had to move the wedding inside due to rain plan and it was still spectacular. I would be happy to work at this venue again and again!!
