Sunset Ranch Event Center is a BRAND NEW wedding venue in between Fredericksburg and Luckenbach, Texas! The owners built it after their daughter got married in the Austin area. They knew The Hill Country needed more wedding venues, and this was the perfect piece of property. Plus, it’s only an hour from Austin and San Antonio!
When I first saw it’s all-white interior with neutral finishes I gasped. It’s so so gorgeous in person, and I immediately started envisioning beautiful weddings being held here. The best part? You can get married here in the middle of Summer and not worry about your guests having a heat stroke. Their huge windows that overlook the hills is the perfect spot for an indoor ceremony. They also have side doors that can roll up to create a seamless indoor-outdoor area for cocktail hour and mingling during the reception.
They have BEAUTIFUL getting-ready spaces for the girls AND the guys (sometimes guys get left out–not this time!) and fun little details like a balcony that overlooks the reception space (scroll to the second-to-last photo) and a window for the bar.
I’ve had the privilege of photographing the beautiful venue a few times now, and I enjoyed putting together this venue highlight to show off its beauty!
Their outdoor ceremony location has SUCH a beautiful view. I love that the girls’ suite has plenty of getting-ready room and mirrors everywhere! The guys’ getting ready area is so inviting, I could have stayed there, too. haha! They can watch TV while they play poker and relax before “go” time. They also have this sweet garden White shiplap walls will always be my favorite. They make for such a nice and clean background. These beautiful chairs are a champagne color! Sometimes I look at them and I think they are definitely silver. Then I’ll look at them in a different light, and they look gold! It’s fascinating how they match whichever metal they are next to. They also have doors that roll up for when the weather is nice outside and a window to the bar (so cute!)
