    I booked Willowood Ranch for my daughter's wedding site unseen! We visited many venue options around San Antonio and was put off by the "wedding industry" and their gimmicks. The popular venues booked weddings on top of each other. Many required you choose every vendor from their list. I felt like a pawn and not a customer. Willowood is a gem! The only requirement was to use Chef Roberts and everything else is free choice. This was a HUGE plus!! Caterers can be hit and miss, but b/c Chef Roberts has extensive experience and also has a popular restaurant, his cuisine is tried, tested and proven to be spectacular! Requiring his services is the best wedding gift! The food at the reception was gorgeous to look at and so delicious! There were no gimmicks. The prices were all reasonable! Everything was straightforward from the very beginning, so I had no doubts the place would be as stunning as they said. The customer service alone was enough to get me to book. From the very beginning, every single person from Marcy (Chef Roberts wife) to Tracie (Willowood Ranch owner) were so responsive and helpful. They were eager to please and did not have any off putting attitude that is becoming too common in the "wedding industry". On wedding day, everything, and I mean everything, exceeded my expectations! The church was magnificent and so charming. It was exactly like the pictures. The pictures were not photo shopped. It really IS that gorgeous! We rented every single ranch house too. All the houses (except the main ranch house) were very new. It made the whole wedding so much fun. The bridesmaid had a house, the groomsmen had a house. It made it easy to have everyone on property when it came time to do hair and photographs. I was given a site coordinator, Janet, who was at my beck and call and who had several other helpers who did everything I needed them to do. I could not believe the amount of customer service I received. The wedding was like a fairy tale!!

    What an amazing venue! Every picture turned out absolutely perfect. The chapel needs minimal decorations because it's already beautiful by itself (which is great on a budget). I highly recommend renting out some bunk houses for the family to stay on the property & for you & bridal party to get ready on the day of your wedding. Being on location was key and made it very stress-free.

    Willowood Ranch is a beautiful setting for your wedding. We've assisted with both indoor and outdoor ceremonies on the beautiful property. The Staff is very accommodating and Chapel and Ranch Hall are kept very clean. The property is great for out of town guests as well as they have many cabins onsite for family and wedding party after the big event. The onsite Chef is amazing!!!
