Adam grew up in Austin. After graduating from The University of Texas, Adam moved to Houston to work for Exxon as an Engineer. Unhappy with living in Houston and working in the corporate world, Adam moved back to Austin and founded The Relic Source and Star Hill Ranch. The Relic Source is a movie prop, vintage rental and set decoration business. Adam leveraged his Engineering background and the skills learned being raised by an Entrepreneur to develop the 30+ acre site. Over the course of 20 years, Adam has led the restoration of 9 of the 22 buildings on the property, for the purpose of hosting weddings, corporate events, festivals, concerts and parties of all kinds. With his connections to the film industry through the prop company, Star Hill has also been the filming location for a number of movies, tv shows and countless commercials and music videos.
Adam has 2 beautiful daughters and lives in the Austin area.
Matt was born and raised in Austin. After a comical journey through 4 colleges, Matt completed the famous 7 year plan, graduating from St. Edward's University. Matt lived many of the components of the entire adult-life experience while chasing his degree - met a beautiful lady, had a kid and started a successful professional career. Matt spent over 10 years in the high tech industry, gaining valuable experience in operations, procurement and logistics. After getting weary of the highs and lows of the tech world, Matt moved into the retail and financial services industries for the next 10 years, working for a number of fortune 100 companies and gaining a new skillset in sales and marketing. Finally fed up with the corporate game (took Matt a little longer than his brother to figure out that his entrepreneurial father had the right idea), Matt joined Adam in Austin to help take Star Hill Ranch to a new level.
Since 2014, Matt has worked with Adam to grow Star Hill's presence, focusing on building relationships with couples and providing an end to end experience. Developing new approaches and programs, Matt has helped Star Hill become one of the premiere event venues in America, and he is excited about some of the new endeavors recently rolled out, including micro/elopement weddings.

This venue is absolutely amazing! The photos we took here made for some of the very best we have ever had the opportunity to shoot. This place truly is a must-see. Once you do, you won't book anywhere else.
I absolutely love Star Hill Ranch! The town they have built out there is amazing! I love the old-time feel at night with the cafe lights across the street. As a photographer, going through all the buildings is like I'm a kid in a candy shop. So many great photo ideas! And the management is fantastic, which is exactly what you want on your wedding day.
Star Hill Ranch Wedding Venue is one of the most rustic and beautiful locations in the West Austin area that we've had the opportunity of DJing. The venue screams of an old-time western feel. We look forward to helping deliver many quality weddings at this spectacular venue! The staff members are professional and very friendly.
