Everything was perfect!
I had my wedding at the Gin at Hidalgo Falls on June 27, 2020. Even amid all the Covid craziness, it was incredible! I was originally set to get married there on May 16, 2020. After hearing about all the venues that wouldn’t allow their brides to reschedule, I was worried. However, within minutes of texting Laura, she responded saying that there would be no date change fee. Shifting the date to June 27 was SO easy. Laura and Carly have been so accommodating, and really made this experience so much better for us. The Gin is also BEAUTIFUL and the layout is really conducive to events. The bathrooms, grooms suite, and bridal suite were all perfect. The bridal suite has excellent artificial and natural lighting, plenty of space for getting ready, and the little kitchenette is adorable! We also loved that there were plenty of beds available, as the flower girls desperately needed a nap on that long day! The fields around the venue were full of sunflowers, which was a huge hit with not only myself, but also with the gusts! The aesthetic was perfect, the employees were incredibly helpful; I’d choose to have my wedding there every time!Sent on 07/06/2020
The Gin at Hidalgo Falls's reply:Thank you so much, Darby! We're so happy to hear that you had such a wonderful experience. Your wedding was BEAUTIFUL and you were STUNNING in the sunflowers! We wish you and Scott the very best as you begin your new life together!

The perfect venue!
I had my wedding at the Gin at Hidalgo Falls on July 3, 2020. Everything about the Gin is absolutely perfect. The venue is beautiful all on its own and the bride/groom suites are to die for. From the first time we stepped foot in the venue, we knew it was the perfect place for us and our wedding. The location is so peaceful and secluded. We decided to have our overnight accommodations in College Station. The 25-minute drive was not an issue at all. All of our guests still can’t stop talking about how amazing the venue was. We were lucky to have sunflowers surrounding the property due to the time of year. They made for a beautiful backdrop! We decided to have our ceremony in front of the two old silos rather than the traditional ceremony site and it was a huge hit with our guests. The Gin at Hidalgo Falls is so unique and unlike any other wedding venue. It is also priced well! Laura and Carly were so sweet and helpful during the planning process and wedding day. I loved the All Seated program that allowed us to easily design our wedding layout with our coordinator. Overall, our wedding day was absolutely perfect and better than we had ever dreamed, even with COVID! I would 100% recommend The Gin at Hidalgo Falls. A huge thank you to Laura and family!!Sent on 07/14/2020
The Gin at Hidalgo Falls's reply:Cynthia, thank you so much for your feedback! It was our pleasure, and we're so happy to hear that you had a perfect day! The Silos ceremony turned out so beautiful!! Congratulations again to you and Austin, we wish you guys all the best!

Book This Venue IMMEDIATELY - They're Amazing
We got married on January 2nd, but we booked the Gin way back in 2018 (we were paying for our own wedding and had to save up for a bit!). The pricing was unbelievably reasonable and the fact we had it on a Thursday meant it was an even better rate! We were planning the event from way out of state, and Laura was absolutely incredible with how responsive, friendly, and flexible she was with our extended planning process. We got to tour several times whenever we could make it down there to visit, she set us up on All-Seated and let us customize our layout down to the tiniest detail.Sent on 01/11/2020
We tend to be on the creative side with things we like to do, and she rolled with every crazy idea we threw her way, helping us make each of them a reality. On the day of, she helped us rally through a torrential downpour, a switch to our rain plan, and a complete room flip in a mere 20 minutes. You couldn't ask for a better contact.
For the venue itself, we really appreciated that is was a beautiful blank slate for us to work with, from the wide open patios, to the main building, to the outdoor ceremony site options (plural), we had free reign to really make our wedding personal to us. Having the suites from the parties and our own private accommodations was EXACTLY what we needed the day of. We had 14 people in our party (7 on each side), and they weren't cramped and loved having their own private areas, especially showers! For us, we absolutely loved having our own space to get ready, to keep our dogs (away from the loud insanity that was the reception) and to just take a breather in when we needed it throughout the day.
The venue is just far enough away from civilization to give you some peace, quiet, and natural beauty, but not so far that shuttle services and limos cant get you/guests can't drive safely.
All in all, we couldn't be more happy with our experience with the Gin. They were an incredible venue and are the main reason our day was as incredible as it was.
The Gin at Hidalgo Falls's reply:Alex & Billy - thank you so much for your kind words. And for allowing us to be part of your love story. We're just so happy for you two and that you had such a beautiful (despite the weather!) day. Wishing you both all the best!
