    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!

    Our dream wedding location!

    This venue was a dream location to host our special day! It is located on a private ranch and provides a 360 degree view of Texas hill country. The interior design of the venue was done beautifully as we needed little decor, and the brides/grooms suite are spacious and provide a perfect place to get ready on the day-of. The Eckherts were a pleasure to work with and were responsive to any questions we had throughout the planning process. I highly recommend The Venue at Rafter E Ranch!

    Top Notch in all aspects!!

    Mary stayed vigilant in all our plans throughout the planning and during the event. Her vendor recommendations were on point!!! It was a destination wedding, therefore, leaving all our guest speechless on the surrounding beauty of The Venue at Rafter E Ranch. Needless to say, everyone got in their family pictures done at the same time!!! Definitely recommend such an amazing hidden GEM!!!

    Beautiful Place

    We loved having our reception at the Venue at Rafter E. Ranch! We were able to set up the day before and it was a life saver. She was very accommodating to our schedule so we could meet out at the venue and helped everything run smoothly!

    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!

    I could not have imagined a better venue experience for our wedding day! The Venue is such a perfect place to get married and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a wedding venue. The Venue is very large so I was concerned that setting up would be overwhelming but it was a breeze!!! The owners are so helpful and quick to respond to any concerns and/or questions. Mary was a HUGE help when it came to setting up and arranging tables. The bridal suite is absolutely beautiful and made for remarkable 'getting ready' pictures. My favorite part of The Venue is its beautiful location. It is surrounded by breathtaking views - our sunset pictures were our favorite! I will recommend The Venue to all of my engaged family and friends!

    I have been to other Venues/locations throughout my life. I love this place! All the detail and thought that went into designing this place is amazing. We had a small friends party, around 200. The owners are so accommodating, they also were so good to reflect what the best table arrangements would be. The views are spectacular, sunset so beautiful! Parking can be an issue sometimes, not with this place! They have a huge parking lot right in front. You can wear your dress shoes with confidence, as you will not walk through precarious ground. I will highly recommended this place!

    Sincerely,
    Bonnie Beckmann
