About Cricket Hill Ranch

Cricket Hill Ranch is a one-of-a-kind event venue located in Dripping Springs, Texas. The sprawling views of the Hill Country are too beautiful for words.  The sunsets here seem to go on forever, and the peacefulness of the space is so quiet the only thing you can hear in the evenings are the crickets.

Once you pass through the 22 foot custom gate, you’ll immediately see why Cricket Hill Ranch is indeed a very special place.

Designed specifically for weddings,it offers amenities you won’t find anywhere else in South Texas. We like to say we cater to couples because we have something special for the bride AND groom. The Bride’s Room is luxurious with a gorgeous full bath, huge closet and three additional vanities for your attendants to use.

The Private Terrace off the Bride’s Room is a great place to relax and grab some fresh air while you prepare. For the groom, we have a Private Suite, a Terrace, and gave him the added bonus of the Game Room. The Game Room is complete with pool table and TVs to help him compose himself on the biggest day of his life.

We are not wedding planners, we don’t cater food or design wedding flowers. you can schedule all that with whomever you chose. We are here simply to provide you a beautiful, peaceful, stress-free environment for your special event.

We have nearly 13,000 square feet of facility that will make you feel like we built it just for you… because we did.

Our founder, April McLaughlin, a 5th generation Texan, recognized the beauty of the Hill Country long ago and decided it had to be shared.  After spending almost 10 years looking for just the right spot, we were finally divinely guided to what has become known as Cricket Hill Ranch or ‘ The Hill ‘ for short.  We have a great big family and even more wonderful friends, and we would ALL like to welcome you to our home, Cricket Hill Ranch. We know you’ll feel the sweet spirit of this special place in Texas and will want to begin your life together here.

Cricket Hill Ranch is a beautiful venue with both indoor and outdoor options! If you're looking for a place with scenic country views (think rustic and it's perfect for pictures) to tie your nuptials, this is the place. Dripping Springs and the surrounding areas have plenty of vendors that can help make your day perfect. Aubrey and April are awesome, too. They will listen to and help you with every need you have and on top of that, they know exactly what they're doing and don't miss a beat. They take the stress off of planning the big day, which is exactly what we were looking for. I highly recommend this venue for your wedding and we're so, so happy with our choice. Couldn't have picked a better place and we got some many compliments on the choice!

This place was amazing! April and Aubrey work so well together and were so helpful to us the entire time. The property was so gorgeous and they were so knowledgeable and respectful. They went above and beyond to make our day beyond amazing. We had a wonderful experience here, and are so grateful for their help and our time here!!!

French Inspired Floral has had opportunity to provide wedding florals out at April's Cricket Hill Ranch and are ALWAYS happy to refer this very lovely Hill Country venue! Their Bridal Suite is AMAZING! We look forward to seeing many more happy couples exchange their wedding vows out at this ranch! All the best Cricket Hill!

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!!
