It was literally magic…

I can’t even express how amazing our wedding was because of this venue and Starr and Matt. I jokingly told Starr she could have my first born because of how incredible this day and process was for us. We planned this completely out of state and only had one visit to the ranch, which was the day we decided this was our venue. Starr gave us so much direction and so many tips to get us going, but we had complete freedom to coordinate whatever we wanted. Starr was always so responsive during the 8 months of planning. We did our rehearsal dinner at the venue, which was great for our most important people to lay eyes on this magical place ahead of time. Wedding day was so seamless. Starr and Matt were buzzing around and never once came to me with issues. They either figured them out behind the scenes or with my point person bridesmaid and everything turned out better than I could have asked for. Our guests have been raving out our wedding and we couldn’t have been happier. If you’re considering this venue, just know that you can’t go wrong. There’s such a personal touch when you work with these amazing people and this amazing venue that I truly feel we could not have gotten elsewhere. When we looked at other venues, they felt so cookie cutter and impersonal. I could go on and on, but basically there’s no doubt that this was the perfect day. I am so grateful to Starr and Matt for making a dream I didn’t even know I had come true!

Perfection!

One word...PERFECTION! Thank you to Star, Matt, Alex and Summer for making our day more than we could have ever hoped for! We hired Summer Star for their day of services and we couldn't have been more thrilled that we did. They handled everything and we just relaxed and enjoyed our day! And the venue was spectacular-gorgeous barn, gorgeous views and gorgeous pictures...It was our dream day!

Summer Star is AMAZING!

Starr, Matt and Alex go above and beyond for you on your wedding day/weekend. Matt and Alex worked their butts off Friday and Saturday to get everything set up perfectly. They both equally check in with you and make sure everything goes just the way you want it. HIGHLY suggest doing the day of service. You wont regret it. 1000/10!!
