For an unforgettable, beautiful wedding day, choose King River Ranch!
I am so happy that we had our wedding at King River Ranch. It was absolutely perfect. Amy was amazing and helpful all the way, and the location could not have been more beautiful.Sent on 01/19/2020
First of all, it made such a different to be able to stay at the ranch for the two days leading up to the wedding. We were able to do most of the decorating before the rehearsal, and for a DIY couple like us, having the extra time made our actual wedding day stress-free. We were also able to enjoy some really special time with friends and family who came from far away by having the extra time there.
The ceremony space was beautiful - all our guests had something positive to say about the beautiful grounds. The barn was beautiful and spacious, and overall we couldn’t have been happier with how the day went.
The last comment I have is about the awesome animals at the ranch! If you love animals, consider have your wedding day here. Our families and friends’ kids loved feeding the goats, horses, and ponies, and we got some great wedding photos with Cooper, the white horse.
Choose King River Ranch for your wedding - you won’t be disappointed!

You don't need to star in a Disney movie to feel like a princess, KRR will take care of that for your wedding day!
To put it simply, King River Ranch will make your Texan/ranch wedding fairy tale come true. My husband and I visited numerous ranches in the Texas Hill Country to find the perfect venue for the day we say "I do". When we arrived at KRR, David was so welcoming and friendly we were immediately comfortable and couldn't wait to hear details and take our tour. Words cannot describe how wonderful the team is at this venue and how their attention to detail is truly just impeccable. The venue is designed for the perfect wedding from how the ceremony site faces the river for the perfect sunset behind you while you say your vows, to the absolutely breath taking bridal suite and lounge for the day-of rituals, not to mention your reception will feel like something out of a bridal magazine with how beautifully ornate its designs are even before your florals and decor. David and his two sons did all of our florals and decor; I don't know how else to describe it other than magical. We had also hired Amy from Avenue Q Consulting out of KRR as our wedding coordinator and we couldn't have made a better decision. She knows the venue like the back of her hand, and is not only the sweetest person you'll get to know, but she is ALWAYS on her game with vendors. Amy will keep your mind at ease and keep you calm for your big day! KRR will accomodate to your every need and make you feel like you aren't just getting married there but that you've become part of their family. Our guests are still talking about how incredible and beautiful our wedding was and it's all because of the team at King River Ranch. Now that KRR has lodging on site (it wasn't quite ready for our wedding), I know my husband and I want to gather up some friends and stay there for another weekend to enjoy the scenery/wine country and get to see Amy again! Couldn't recommend King River Ranch enough, it will just make all of your dreams come true for your perfect wedding day.Sent on 11/29/2018

We loved getting to work out at King River Ranch for florals and rentals, the quiet country location makes for a great event! They have the perfect reception area that gives you a barn feel that you customize to your style!
The ultimate gorgeous Hill Country barn! This is no ordinary barn, but lighted by chandeliers, a sparkling pond in front, Hill Country hills rolling away, and then a river really runs through it! King River Ranch is magical, and the creative force behind it, is a joy to work and design with! This is definitely the premier wedding destination venue nestled not too far from Austin or Fredericksburg!
