    Beautiful and Breathtaking.

    I left Don strange calling my then fiancé to tell him this was the one, this was the venue. Laura and the owner Natalie were so helpful and eager to answer my emails, calls and texts. There are two venue on property and we chose Kendall creek. The tables, linens and some decor were provided along with sanitizer and temp checks on our special day. I got so many compliments Nd would choose then all over again. Indoor or outdoor ceremony or bar locations. A list of vendors was given but I only had to choose one of their bartenders.

    Magical Wedding Experience

    We had a phenomenal experience using Kendall Creek at Don Strange Ranch for our wedding venue. Laura and Natalie were wonderful to work with, extremely helpful, attentive to detail and accommodating. The venue is a beautiful wood barn with rustic/vintage vibes and romantic strings of lights. Our wedding package included a longhorn feeding experience that our guests enjoyed while we took photos. At night they allow sparkler send offs. Our wedding was truly magical.

    Staff needs to let loose more

    So when we initially booked we had someone name Alyssa helping us out. She was awesome and basically was human. Then she left and someone named Laura took over and we just felt like we were micro managed the whole time. We had a lot of stuff come up. One of them being that my wife was fired from her job the day before our wedding. We explained that this happened and we were already stressing about the wedding. They said we can pay by the end of the month which was awesome. However, they acted like they didn’t trust us knowing that they had more then half of the money. I sent pics of the checks with tracking and still didn’t feel like that was enough. Also, my parents said she was on them like they worked for her. My coordinator ran late and so my parents were doing their best and she made them feel pressured instead of leaving them alone. Also the house was pretty dirty. The shower was gross the rooms looked like they were just picked up and not actually cleaned. We did NOT get our steers as we were promised. The venue is beautiful. Definitely a dream rustic wedding. However the staff needs to let loose a little. I’d pay good money to get Alyssa back. Also, don’t have it in the summer. Extremely hot not AC.

    The Don Strange Family Ranch & Event Center's reply:

    Hello Priscilla & Jennifer,
    It was a pleasure working with you both for your wedding.
    It was my job as the venue representative to make sure all the rules were followed and details were put in place so that the wedding day would go as smoothly as possible. I apologize that you felt I "micro managed" you. That was not my intention. I have found that trying to take care of as much as possible up front is better than having things pop up and go wrong on the day of the wedding.
    It is also our policy that the venue must be paid in full 30 days before your wedding date, as stated in the contract you signed. I worked to get the owner & investors of the ranch to agree to let you pay at a later time because of your particular circumstances. I apologize you felt like you were not trusted, but having "more than half the money" was still going against the contract as far as the bosses were concerned and I would have hated for y'all to have lost out on everything. I felt they compromised in your favor to allow the payments to come in later.
    I truly enjoyed meeting your parents, they are wonderful people. I apologize that my efforts to help them came off the wrong way. I always try to lend a hand on the wedding day as much as possible for all of my wedding couples, I did not realize that they did not want any help. I will be more mindful of that in the future.
    The house is historical and there are things in the house that are over 100 years old. I can understand how that might appear different than going into a brand new house/hotel room. We are in the process of slowly remodeling the things we can inside the historical home. I can assure that the house is cleaned several times a week, in addition to being cleaned after each event. I apologize for it not being up to your standards, we will be more mindful of that in the future.
    The steers were uncooperative on the day of your wedding and our normal handler was out of town. We tried all day the day before and all morning of the wedding to get them penned, but they were a little testy at that time and we felt it was better not to risk anyone's safety. This was completely our fault and I do apologize for that. It is very rare that we don't get them to cooperate.
    It is also our goal to get A/C installed, but until then the venue will be how it has been for the last 40 years, a beautiful indoor/outdoor venue. I would be happy to address any of your concerns with you directly, feel free to contact me at any time.
    I hope you and your family are doing well.
    Laura
