The renderings are astounding! And the venue site is amazing! Its amazing to watch it all come together! Amanda and AJ are the best and I can't wait to get married here!

Let me tell you, AJ and Amanda busted butt to get it done and WOW, it was perfect! The barn doors were great to separate ceremony space from reception area, bride and grooms suites were gorgeous, and everything ran flawlessly! I can not thank everyone here enough! We hired bartenders through the venue, outside caterers, a DJ and a live band! we had plenty of room for our large guest list (230) and we had the best time! The worst part is that it's over and I don't get to spent any more time at this breath taking venue.

Literally have zero bad things to say about this place and I would recommend it a hundred times over.

Canyonwood Ridge is absolutely the most gorgeous venue! It's newly built and it's layout is designed perfectly for the functionality of a wedding.

It's airy and bright with such a good feel to it. The bridal suite is fit for a princess- chandeliers, plenty of mirrors, blush colors, and the coolest part is the windows are tinted.

I can't say enough good things. A big part of what made my day and this whole process special, was working with Amanda. She made this a breeze and was so detailed in making my plan come to life. She handled everything on our wedding day and made it run smoothly. Many thanks to Amanda and Canyonwood Ridge!

My advice - look no further! The facility is clean, well-arranged, well-equipped for any wedding. The view of the property from large windows in the chapel gives the appearance of an outdoor wedding without the weather risk. The high ceilings and lighting give the venue a... Read More graceful yet up-to-date atmosphere. The ceremony and reception area are attached so no one has to travel to a different reception destination. Coordinator Emily Gibbons was on point and often way ahead of our needs. She was gracious, calm and efficient throughout an entire day of rehearsal, wedding and reception and answering the many questions we asked throughout the day. You'll miss a lot if you choose a different venue.

I can't say enough about this place and the people that are behind it. We had ceremony and reception here and I would do it again 10 times over! THIS IS WHERE YOU NEED TO GET MARRIED! I was looking for something very specific for our wedding and this place had everything I... Read More wanted. You have and indoor and outdoor option to choose where you would like to have your ceremony take place and both are gorgeous. We got married in July so outdoors was not an option (Texas summers are no joke) but the indoor space had BEAUTIFUL windows that made for almost as good of a backdrop as being outside. BRIDES - the bridal and bridesmaid suite is stunning. The staff at Canyonwood Ridge is amazing to work with. Amanda is your go to gal. She is one of the sweetest, most down to earth person you will ever meet. She goes beyond to make sure you have the perfect day. Your guests are going to be so blown away at this place and they will have a blast. It is so beautiful and worth every dollar you spend. One of the most memorable days of my life. Highly recommended.

My wedding at Canyonwood Ridge was nothing short of amazing. From the beginning, Amanda (wedding coordinator) and AJ (owner) were very helpful. AJ and Amanda were always prompt in returning my emails and ready to answer any question that I had. I opted to have Amanda... Read More coordinate on the day of and I would recommend that for anyone because it made the day go very smoothly. Amanda and her assistant put out all of the decorations and coordinated where everyone needed to be for the ceremony and reception. Our approximately 170 guests were extremely comfortable and felt at home throughout the whole night. We were able to have the venue from 9:00 AM to midnight which allowed us to drop off decorations in the morning and allowed everyone to have a night filled with fun. We felt the price for the venue was very comparable to others in the area and there weren’t any hidden fees that came up throughout the process. What I really loved about the venue was that there was an outdoor ceremony site, but there was also an indoor ceremony site in addition to a reception area. This was great just in case there was bad weather. We really enjoyed getting ready in the bridal and groom’s suite. Planning a wedding can be stressful, but the people at Canyonwood Ridge made it a lot easier and our wedding day went off without a problem. I have Amanda and AJ to thank for that!

I don't have a single negative thing to say about Canyonwood Ridge, and working with Amanda Hepner.

Read More thought of everything, was so supportive, and made the seemingly impossible totally work! My wedding fit 300 people into the reception hall, and even did a Polish Grand March that got everyone out of their seats and following along! SO FUN!! I would absolutely recommend taking advantage of Canyonwood's breathtaking facilities, and especially taking advantage of their in house coordination. They are the experts at their own venue, and know how to get things done in the most cost efficient way. Always ask questions! The accommodating hours were especially relieving! We had the hall until midnight, which is surely something you don't find in all Austin area locations. The grounds are outrageously beautiful. We got married inside the chapel amongst floor to ceiling windows of the property. Guests were free to hang out in the reception hall, or take a walk outside to catch the breeze and the view while we were taking photos! Not to mention the adorable bridal and groom suites! I felt like I was getting dressed in a dollhouse for the day. It was perfect. In addition to the coordination and venue itself, I will HIGHLY recommend Uptown Drive for live music, The Bird and The Bear for photo and videography, Pink Avocado for delicious food, and STEMS for the most romantic, whimsical flower arrangements any bride could ask for! I can extend on the expertise on of the things I've mentioned if requested! Happy planning!! -Chelsea & Bryan Caffey

I just had my wedding at Canyonwood Ridge on September 17, 2016. I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful venue for my wedding ceremony and reception!

Our wedding was 240 people and we had plenty of room to have a stage for our great band (we highly recommend The Austin Nines!). Most importantly, this venue is amazing to work with.

Overall, we were very satisfied with the venue. They have only been open for for 6 months, max, so they're still working on getting a few kinks worked out. They ask if you will allow them to give tours the day of your event, which we allowed (prior to my arrival), but they ran... Read More over a little bit and it frustrated my day or coordinator, so if I did it again, I'd say 'no tours that day.' I'm told that the groom's room was a little small, but it worked. Only other negative is that set up is not typically included in the cost of the venue. They worked with me on that, and hopefully they will continue to work with couples in the future. The view is beautiful and because the venue is so pretty, there's not a ton of decorations required. (Unless, or course, you like a lot of bling!) We would definitely use this venue again and recommend it to any couple considering it. AJ & Amanda are both very helpful and will work to get what you need from them.
