Want to know why Julie and Sunset Ridge Farm is the best of the best? READ.Sent on 02/07/2019
My fiance and I started the hunt for a venue just two weeks after getting engaged. With a wedding date more than a year away, we weren't in a rush, but we were eager to start the process. Suffice to say, all of the venue options, bridal shows and venue visits had us beyond overwhelmed. But then there was Julie.
We took the drive to Sunset Ridge Farms after meeting Julie, a warm and welcoming woman with an upbeat personality, at a bridal show. The instant we arrived on her property we were in awe. This isn't your typical wedding, you all. The property is 50+ acres surrounded by the most beautiful lush green trees. The venue is a weekend booking complete with a 18+ person lodge with the most GORGEOUS interior design AND a private swimming pool. There two gorgeous ponds, both with docks and fishing possibilities. There are hiking/walking 'trails' around the property, as well.
Why we chose Sunset Ridge Farms:
1. Aside from everything mentioned above, Julie and her husband are building an incredible open-air chapel with a unique vintage vibe (to be complete ASAP). Look up the Texas Gruene Estate wedding chapel and tell me you wouldn't want to get married under that magical thing straight from a fairy tale! They're also building it in the middle of this small field surrounded by green trees. It's going to be JAW-DROPPING. AND the barn on her property is huge, yet completely cozy at the same time. She's adding luxury bathrooms and a caterers kitchen to the site, as well (also to be completed ASAP). This is not your cookie-cutter barn. It's raw. It's elegant. It's a blank canvas you don't even need to paint. Forget all the decorations you'd have to pay an excess of money for - this barn is the decoration. Now, if you want to add some decorations, that's fine too, because this barn is only going to make them look better - not the other way around.
2. The Lodge is different from what others advertise. It's not an obviously lived-in home that's just slapped on the advertisement so they can charge you more. NO. It is a wooden castle built by Julie and her husband themselves. There's a surplus of rooms decorated to the tens (did I mention that Julie is a professional interior designer?) and comfortable beds that look like they're calling you to take a cozy nap right then and there. AND THE KITCHEN. I'm a chef wanna-be and I didn't want to leave that room. State-of-the-art equipment, copper sink, gigantic fridge, any cookware/cooking utensils/dinnerware you could ever need! Excuse me while I come back down from the clouds. She's even taken into consideration ADA ACCESSIBILITY and has an entire bathroom built for that. Not gonna lie, it was my favorite shower of the whole place - straight out of a magazine, y'all. Pool table, kid-friendly, three grills on site, grand piano (maybe it's a baby grand? idk. Not the point. PIANO), porch overlooking a gorgeous field, windows SURROUNDING the living room for an all-natural feel, exquisite design, impeccable decor. You do the math.
3. Julie. I've saved the best one for last. She was the first venue owner that I felt was viewing Joseph and I as 'Joseph and Emily' not 'the next potential client.' She had a immense passion that not one of the other vendors had. She was excited to share her property and, most of all, she was transparent. Every other vendor made us feel like we were being nickled and dimed to use their decor and services. Julie gives you one price - all-inclusive. She also has that comforting servant leadership mindset. She's willing to make our day special - whatever we want (within reason, guys, don't be butts) and she wants to do it with a smile on her face. She has answered my 1,000+ questions promptly and fully - as open and transparent as possible! I trust no one else with our wedding day.
So there you have it. 1,001 reasons why Sunset Ridge Farm is unparalleled. So, go on a tour - you'll fall in love.
