“A wedding day should be special. It is the love of two people becoming one. And for a bride, the months, weeks, and days leading up to that special day can be hectic, chaotic and stressful. One thing is for sure: having your wedding at the River Ranch will make your wedding planning much less stressful!
Our experience at the River Ranch was incredible! From the moment we called to inquire about the venue, the friendly staff over the phone was wonderful. There was never a “pushy-sales” moment and no question was left unanswered or thought silly to ask. When we visited the venue for the first time, again, the staff was extremely friendly and if you’re looking for that “southern hospitality” you’ve come to the right place!
I was honored to work with the staff they were fabulous! They communicated with me in a timely manner whether it be via phone or email and took time to work with me and help answer any (and all) of my MANY questions and gave great recommendations to help make our wedding perfect. Even on the day of our wedding, they were there cheering us on, making sure every detail was in place and our guests were well taken care of during the entire evening.
If you are looking for a rustic, feel-good atmosphere for your wedding location, we highly recommend River Ranch Stockyards! It is worth every penny you will invest on your special day. When you host your wedding at the River Ranch, you can be sure you and your spouse will have the best ceremony in a wonderful atmosphere, your guests will enjoy themselves and the memories will last a lifetime!
Happy Trails, Robert & Lora Ramirez”
“We had a wonderful experience at River Ranch for our wedding! We initially chose the space for its size – we wanted something large enough for our guests, as well as 2 buffet lines, photo booth, cakes, gifts, picture displays, etc. It worked out perfectly! The team at River Ranch was so helpful, encouraging, and accommodating! We met multiple times to go over every detail. They truly helped us bring our ideas to life. The actual day of our wedding was cold & rainy and everything still went perfectly! The space itself was gorgeous and we couldn’t be happier! Thank you River Ranch!
