  • What is the rain plan?
    We understand that considering a rain plan is not ideal, but we always want to be prepared for any weather changes. Fortunately, we offer a beautiful alternative option to host your ceremony under our tent in case of rain. Rain plan arrangements should ideally be made the day before the wedding once an hourly forecast is available. This ensures enough time for us to set up the new plan before your access time begins.

Dogs must be taken off-site after the cocktail hour, and to ensure their well-being and care, we highly recommend hiring a pet attendant.

    We are able to provide a list of accommodations sorted by mileage to the venue upon request. However, we highly recommend considering the Courtyard by Marriott, Holiday Inn Express, or Sleep Inn & Suites, all located in Dripping Springs. Additionally, there are plenty of excellent Airbnb options available in close proximity to the venue.

    We offer limited on-site parking and strongly encourage both carpooling and bringing compact cars to make the most of the available space. Upon arrival at our facility, you will find parking located near the tall silver silo. Please note that parking is strictly prohibited at the surrounding properties, including the church and community center.
  • Are rideshares easily accessible from the venue?
    Rideshares will sometimes drop off and pick up at our location. However, please be aware that our venue is in a remote area, so we strongly recommend pre-scheduling your pickup. You are able to pre-schedule your trip through the Uber, Lyft or Fetii apps. If you require a ride home last minute on the evening of the wedding, please make the request at least 30 minutes before your desired departure time to allow ample time for the rideshare service to arrive. Please be aware that even a pre-scheduled trip can be cancelled by the driver so it is not the most reliable form of transportation.

    We do not have a gate, and we allow cars to be left overnight to ensure a safe ride home for our guests. We kindly request that all cars are picked up the following day before 12 pm.

The restrooms within our reception hall are fully ADA compliant. If you have any specific accessibility requirements or questions, please feel free to reach out to us, and we will be more than happy to assist you.
  • Where can my guests smoke?
    Smoking is permitted only at our designated outdoor lounge area, located to the right of our main entry. It is strictly prohibited under our tent, next to our indoor reception hall, and by all doorways. We kindly ask that all cigarette and cigar butts be properly disposed of in the provided receptacles.
  • What type of shoes should guests wear?
    We recommend avoiding wearing skinny stiletto heels. The decking and certain areas with rocks and grass may cause your heels to get stuck or become damaged while walking. If wearing skinnier heels we recommend using heel protectors to provide a larger bottom to the heel.
  • What can kids do during the wedding?
    For events with a large number of children, we highly recommend considering hiring a babysitting service to ensure the kids are well taken care of. All children must be accompanied by an adult throughout the event to ensure their safety and well-being. To keep the kids entertained during the reception, we suggest converting the groom suite into a movie room (with a guardian present) or providing them with games and activities. This way, children can have their own designated space that is enjoyable and engaging for them.
