    Rehearsal Dinner

    Gaby was amazing to work with for our son’s rehearsal dinner. She was available, helpful and accommodating! We had 90 people and the evening turned out spectacular. We had full use of the venue including the day before which made it easier to decorate. The food was delicious and the venue looked beautiful! We had a great singer named Josh Klaus and his brother in law who played the saxophone on the porch prior to the meal where the guests sang and danced. The stage was the perfect place for the toasts. I highly recommend this venue and working with Gaby made everything less stressful!

    Absolutely perfect! After searching high and low I happened upon the Welfare Cafe and Goat Barn by accident. I knew before I even went to see the venue in person that it was the place I wanted to get married. Price:For the price you get 24 hours. You will not have to rush to the venue right before the wedding to set up. Flexibility: Gaby the owner was extremely flexible with our needs. She allowed us to do a pre-set up and store decorations at the venue the day before. While this may not always be available (she may have other events booked!) It was great to work with someone who was willing to be flexible and help us create an amazing evening. She also allowed us to use the venue for our engagement photos for no additional charge. We were also able to rehearse the evening before! No Vendor List: you can use your own vendors for everything if you choose! Food:I 100% recommend using Welfare Cafe to cater your event. My guests are still raving about the food stating they have never had wedding food as good as ours. Gaby was extremely flexible with the menu and was able to accommodate food allergies and dietary needs. The pricing was very fair and plus it is made right at the venue! She was also able to create items that were not on her menu. Also can I say, FRESH FOOD! You do not have to deal with food being created hours ahead of time and then being re-heated. Atmosphere:Like something out of a fairy tale. The decor, landscaping and hill country atmosphere was perfect on the day of our wedding. Fireflies and a harvest moon even peeked out during the night. Dancing under the lights on the stone patio was unforgettable. For the price, flexibility, atmosphere and food you cannot find a better venue. Gaby was consistently one of our best vendors to work with and she went above and beyond to make sure we had the best day possible. Her advice and care truly made our day amazing! I'm an extremely happy bride.

    Gaby is amazing. She is casual, friendly, just like us. The venue is beautiful, and she does so much to make sure your day is amazing. Her food is the best, bottom line. It was raining on my wedding day and the ceremony had to be moved, she took care of everything, no worries at all. Everything about this venue is perfect. Highly recommend :)

    Thank you so much for the kind words!!! Was a total surprise. I love your venue so much and can't wait to photograph another wedding there in the future.

    One of my favorite venues in the Hill Country for the discerning bride. I've photographed many weddings here for the last ten years. The venue is nestled deep in the Joshua Creek Valley of the Texas Hill Country. Gaby, the owner, is a friendly, personable host. The Goat Barn was once a working barn in the 1890's and now beautifully restored retaining its rustic charm.
