The Sunset Ranch Event Center is a banquet hall on a farm for couples’ weddings in the Fredericksburg, Texas area. This venue combines rustic style with modern looks, for the perfect contemporary country wedding. The landscaping is stunning and offers many opportunities for photo and ceremony locations. The banquet hall features large glass garage doors leading to views of the surrounding property. Couples will find this venue approximately 10 minutes from downtown Fredericksburg.
Facilities and Capacity
Couples can celebrate their wedding at the Sunset Ranch Event Center with up to 200 guests in attendance. The main hall, a building of grey tones, wood, and glass, seats up to 200 guests. More room is available when the garage doors of this hall are opened to allow access to the covered terrace. The multi-functionality of this banquet hall makes it the perfect location for a ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, or any combination of the three. The interior of this barn-like reception hall is painted a bright, modern white. From the chandeliers to the shiplap walls to the air ducts, all is painted sleek white. Polished cement floors gleam in the light from oversized panes of glass. For couples seeking an outdoor location for their ceremony or cocktail hour, there is a lawn just outside the banquet hall where couples can marry in front of a modern fountain. There is also a landscaped patio space for lounging or gathering in celebration.
Couples can use this venue for a number of wedding-related events. In addition to ceremonies and receptions, it can also be used for elopements, engagement parties, and rehearsal dinners. Onsite parking makes transportation to this venue simple no matter the occasion. For wedding-day celebrations, couples can relax in the bridal suite and prepare for their wedding while guests arrive to find not only parking but wireless Internet as well. Staff at the Sunset Ranch Event Center can give couples referrals to trusted outside vendors, though couples may choose any vendor they’d like for their wedding at this location. During the fun, the venue staff can assist with lighting and sound services, and — when the party is over — can help clean up.

Amazing - even with COVID!
I can't say enough good things about Vicki and Sunset Ranch. We were one of the unlucky couples with a CoronaWedding - lovely. But when I say that Vicki and her team did absolutely everything they could for us, I mean it. We had to option to move dates, but decided not to. Vicki kept us informed on all changes and updates made to accommodate a wedding during these times. She listened to our concerns & ideas and made sure we were heard. She answered every single question we had - and I had a lot (I've never planned a wedding before, I needed to make sure I didn't miss something important.) She also provided many suggestions on highly rated vendors in the area - and ultimately we ended up using a lot of those suggestions. She was so kind and helpful which made the whole experience even better.
The venue itself is gorgeous and so well kept. Plenty of space for my bridal party to get ready (7 bridesmaids, me and 2 moms!) and enjoy our day together. The groomsmen loved their room too, and actually spent a good amount of time up there hanging out. Everything was set up exactly how we planned, and Vicki checked on us often to make sure we had everything we needed. The ceremony space was beautiful and set up with plenty of space for everyone to be seated comfortably distanced from each other, without looking empty (we had about 55 people attend). The reception area also had plenty of seating and space for all the tables, serving tables for caterers, a DJ, a dance floor and a cake table. Oh and the bar is so cute! A huge space with endless possibilities for your day. Overall, there is not a thing I would change about it.
We also ended up with rain in the forecast - and Vicki kept us updated on when we had to make the decision on if we needed to move the ceremony indoors. She watched the weather for us, and we ultimately decided to continue with the outdoor ceremony. The rain held off until later in the evening, and when it decided to pour, they had people sweeping the water off of the covered outdoors areas so guests could still enjoy it. Just an awesome crew!
Take a tour and see the wonderful venue - you will not regret it!Sent on 10/01/2020

Exceeded every expectation!
I cannot say enough amazing things about this venue! If you are thinking about booking it - do not hesitate! It was beautiful, clean, spacious, and exceeded any expectations. The bridal/groom's suites were beautiful and so FUN! The photos both in the building and out were full of natural light that made everyone glow! Vicki, the owner, worked with me every step of the way to ensure that my vision came to life and that my wedding ran as smoothly as possible. Communication was superb, as we worked together to make our COVID wedding as safe as possible. I truly do not know how I could've put my special day together without Vicki & Lisa.Sent on 11/30/2020

Platform for the best day of our lives
This venue was the platform for the best day of our lives. Vicki and her husband were more than accommodating and provided unparalleled support when searching for vendors and planning out the day. Their insight into the property and vision when developing the venue allowed our vendors to have creative freedom in design that accentuated the environment.
Vicki made the effort to address all my concerns and requests promptly by responding almost immediately via email and phone. She was in constant communication with all of our vendors and always made her interactions positive. What an amazing experience to have Sunset Ranch Event Center as the backdrop to such a pivotal moment in our lives. Thank youSent on 05/07/2019
