    Super smooth & pleasant!

    Our first experience catering at The Venue at Rafter E. Ranch was pleasant and very smooth! As a caterer, there is a check list of things we take into consideration when working at wedding venues. The Venue at Rafter E. Ranch made it super easy for us by being very flexible with our rental delivery & pick up times, giving us a clear list of our responsibilities, and taking care of set up & break down of tables and chairs. We can't wait to go back!

    If we could get married every weekend, we would pick Rafter E every. single. time!!! Mary and Bryan (the owners) went above and beyond to make sure we had the best time. They exceeded all our expectations and are just genuinely GOOD people. They were available any time we needed them the two days we had the venue. We really enjoyed having our rehearsal dinner there the night before the wedding and bonus that we were able to get stuff set up the day before the wedding! The views are INCREDIBLE! One of the many examples of Mary and Bryan being good people, they prayed for us to have a great sunset and we ended up with an unbelievable sunset the night of our wedding! On top of the stunning views of the property, the inside of the venue is outstanding! The lighting set the tone of the wedding so perfectly from cocktail hour to dance time! The brides room is gorgeous and made for unforgettable pictures and memories with all the girls! All DJs/musicians should know the sound system is out of this world and not to bother bringing their own sound system! The layout of the venue made for more great memories. From the bar being a great hangout spot (we played our rehearsal dinner video on repeat throughout the wedding at the tv there), to the huge covered patio that made the 100 degree weather feel like a breezy 80, the venue is perfect and gave all our guests an unforgettable night!
