Star Hill Ranch is a wedding venue located in Austin, Texas. A re-creation of a picturesque Texan Hill Country community, the ranch provides couples with an array of indoor and outdoor event spaces in a tranquil and elegant setting. A short drive away from downtown Auston, couples can escape the noise of the big city and enjoy the beautiful Texan countryside.

FacilIties and Capacity

The ranch can host the most luxurious and glamorous of celebrations as well as smaller more intimate gatherings. Couples who are seeking to make the most of the ranch's glorious grounds and the warm Texan sunshine, the ranch offers a number of outdoor event spaces, perfect for wedding ceremonies and receptions. The picture-perfect Arbor is a park-like ceremony area nestled amongst age-old oak trees and connected to the main building by a meandering stone pathway. The open-plan space can be configured in a variety of ways and is an idyllic setting for both small and large ceremonies. For traditional celebrations, the Little Chapel is a classic Texan Chapel accompanied by period lighting, a functional bell tower, and original pine floors. First built in 1899, the Chapel’s front grounds can also be used as an outdoor ceremony site. Couples can exchange vows at the chapel’s steps, with the bell tower overlooking proceedings. Additional event spaces include the Reception Hall, Fitzhugh Building, the Groom’s Quarters, and the Bridal Cottage. Other facilities at the ranch include the main street and plaza, a catering kitchen, and more.

We also have incredible Micro/Elopement Wedding spaces! If you just want to do a quick ceremony, or have a full wedding on a micro scale, we got you covered. We offer these spaces by the hour for DIY micro weddings and we have a number of inclusive packages. Let us know what will work best for you!

    Star Hill Ranch is a dream come true

    I am getting married in May at Star Hill Ranch. The venue is out of a story book and i feel in love the moment we went to tour it. Matt has been absolutely amazing. He is very easy to communicate with and honestly he feels like part of our family now. Renee (the wedding planner) is extremely thorough and has been brilliant when helping with my timeline and layout. I really cant say enough good things about this venue.

Adam Woolley
Founder/Owner

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 Woolley
Matt Woolley
Director of Everything Happy

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.

All Heart Photography All Heart Photography Wedding Photographers

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.
