Better than i could've ever dreamed!
BOOK THIS VENUE NOW! You will not regret it!!!! La Bonne Vie was everything we dreamed of and so much more!! My husband and I got married last month and had our close friends and family stay at La Bonne Vie in the lodge and cabins that weekend and every guest told us they felt like they were on vacation! Carol and Justine were the best hosts- checked on us when we arrived the Thursday before and made sure all the vendors knew where to set up for the rehearsal dinner and wedding! Any request we had, they made it happen! Every bride talks about things going wrong with venues the day of their wedding but let me tell you, it was perfect!! They even drove us to different parts of the property when we took wedding party pictures and family portraits in their golf cart! There are so many amazing spaces and things to do at the venue, we did the rehearsal dinner, spent the morning of the wedding there, as well as a brunch Sunday morning and no spot was repeated! Our pups even stayed with us on site in their air conditioned kennels! And don’t even get me started on how beautiful the homestead is! My bridesmaids and I got ready there the morning of the wedding and when we left for our ceremony and reception, It was turned into an amazing honeymoon sweet!! And the cool cars they have on the property...they let us take our engagement pics and my bridal portraits with them! And one of them was our getaway car at the end of the night! Truly spectacular!! Our wedding weekend was magical (to say the least)! One we will never forget thanks to La Bonne a Vie! I am hoping that every year from now on we will rent a cabin at La Bonne a Vie to celebrate our wedding anniversaries!Sent on 05/02/2020

A gorgeous wedding venue!!
La Bonne Vie Ranch was the perfect place for our daughters wedding! From the first contact with Justine when she described the Homestead, their smaller venue, as a perfect place for a smaller, more intimate wedding to the last detail of the evening, the precious staff at La Bonne Vie were so helpful and kind. Erika was our venue coordinator for the evening and helped with every aspect of the event. They saw our vision and helped us and our wedding coordinator bring it to life! I would recommend La Bonne Vie Ranch to anyone who is looking for a gorgeous setting for their wedding and a professional, helpful staff to assist them in making their wedding dreams come true. Thank you Justine and Erika and all the staff at La Bonne Vie!!Sent on 12/26/2019

Wedding Weekend at its BEST!
Amazing! Beautiful! Perfect, and so much fun! La Bonne Vie has it all! We had the ultimate wedding weekend experience! From the time we pulled in on Friday until we pulled out on Sunday! One of our favorite parts of La Bonne Vie is that some of our family and friends were able to stay on the property. Some stayed at The Lodge, and some stayed in the cabins! Our friends and family were able to enjoy a weekend away in Fredericksburg and come together to celebrate our daughter's wedding!
The Homestead was a fantastic place to host the rehearsal dinner. Plenty of room to socialize, have a catered dinner, and enjoy the evening with the wedding party! After that, the Homestead was used to house the bride and her girls. Complete with plenty of space for everyone to get ready for the big day! Once the wedding started, the staff flipped the house into the honeymoon suite for the bride and groom to stay for the next two days!
The open-air chapel with stained glass and church pews was a picture-perfect setting for the wedding ceremony! The reception barn had everything you could ask for and more. The setting is beautiful and peaceful! La Bonne Vie spared no expense when it came to the details that make it so unique!
Everyone at La Bonne Vie is friendly, helpful, and just awesome! Justine worked with us from start to finish! Always willing to answer our questions, attend to whatever was needed,and always with a smile! She was the absolute best! I would highly recommend La Bonne Vie to anyone! To be able to stay on property, and experience a full wedding weekend, was an absolute dream!Sent on 12/30/2019
