Perfect Hill Country Wedding! My husband and I got married 10/29/2016. Being from the hill country we wanted something that reminded us of home and Paniolo Ranch was the perfect spot. The grounds are beautiful with lush flowers and greenery. Paniolo Ranch is a hidden gem. Guests were asking how did we find this place?!? and how much they loved the overlook and scenery. The grounds make for beautiful pictures with the waterfountain, the fire bowls, the lights... everything was perfect. The Bridal & Groom suite were great to get ready in. The Bridal suite is decorated so nice and really treat to get primped and ready in. Lots of room and really beautiful views also. Everything was taken care of by the wonderful staff. Judy and her team were so kind and helpful during our wedding journey and it such a memorable experience for us. Paniolo Ranch is perfect for ceremony and reception. We loved our experience! Thank you Judy and all at Paniolo Ranch for making our wedding the BEST DAY EVER!
Paniolo Ranch is by far the best place to get married in the state of Texas. Judy, Kathy and the rest of the staff were so accommodating with everything! My fiancé called a few months back with interests in getting married at the ranch. They were so informative about everything that was offered in the package. We decided this would be the perfect place for us to get married because we were looking for something small and intimate for just the two of us. Leading up to the big day, I really appreciated the fact that they followed up with us to ensure that everything was still on schedule and so that everything would flow as smoothly as possible. So, the big day arrived and the morning started off with some unexpected problems. Kathy called to ensure everything was still on schedule. I explained to her that we were running a little behind schedule and wouldn't make it by the time we agreed on. They were so understanding and adjusted accordingly. I would totally recommend this beautiful ranch to anyone looking to have someone take care of the stressors of getting married. My fiancé and I literally showed up and got married. Everything else was taken care of by the outstanding staff and Paniolo Ranch.
My husband and I were married at Paniolo Ranch the first week of June 2016. We did the Bells and Banquets package deal which included everything but my dress, his tux, the D.J. and our photographer. They did the flowers, the bouquets, set up, clean up, EVERYTHING. We also added the Aloha package, which included accommodations for our family and wedding party. It was the most amazing weekend. Judy and her team made every effort to make sure everything was done to out liking. As part of the Aloha package, she included our rehearsal dinner which was fabulous. The food, the atmosphere, and the staff were amazing. They took care of everything, we just showed up and enjoyed ourselves. It was five star all the way. The wedding was absolutely beautiful. The team at Paniolo did an amazing job making sure everything we asked for was done and done beautifully. Our package included flowers, appetizers during the cocktail hour, catering, all the linens, tableware and glassware, bartenders and wait staff. My husband and our families were able to enjoy ourselves and relax because Paniolo took care of everything. The lights, the scenery and the amazing staff made it a night to remember. Paniolo is an incredibly beautiful property. Our wedding photos are amazing. The grounds are very well kept and make for wonderful photos. For what you get and the quality of the venue and service it absolutely a great deal. I would highly recommend choosing them for your big day or event. Therese Mellgren
Thank you for the memory of a lifetime! While the staff could be a little unorganized at time, everything went off perfectly. We couldn't have picked a better venue! It was a great place to become husband and wife. We also enjoyed the Honeymoon suite after the reception. It was HUGE. Helped us relax after a long week, and made us grateful we picked the venue. You can't beat the views this venue has, as well as the amenities and classiness.
We had such a great time at our wedding at Paniolo Ranch. Our family and wedding party rented the entire place out for the weekend and it was such a great experience! Hunter was the absolute best and helped us with anything and everything we needed, very accommodating! The grounds are so beautiful and make it a perfect place for a wedding!
I have nothing but good things to say about Paniola Ranch, the staff and the whole wedding experience. We trusted Judy with weddings for both of our daughters. We just could not find another venue that offered so much in a relaxing and beautiful setting. Our weddings were very different, even though they were identical in attention to detail, quality of services and overall great time for everyone. We are still smiling!
Beautiful location, poorly managed. We found the staff to be difficult to communicate with through out the planning process, we'd speak with one representative, but someone else was supposed to call us back, and they never would, or they'd never have an answer for you. Be prepared to scrutinize the bill, they charged us for multiple security guards when in reality only one was there on duty, our guests witnessed the bartenders drinking our adult bev's prior to the ceremony starting and when I, the bride asked for a drink after the ceremony they had "ran out". They charged us a clean up fee because rose petals were spread on the floor in the bridal suite. Coffee pot didn't work, Jacuzzi tub randomly sprayed water through out the night, and no one was available to do a final check out and run our CC with us on Friday evening during the rehearsal time or on Sunday morning prior to 9:30 am. We finally gave up calling and looking for someone and left. The grounds are beautiful but the staff is fairly hard to communicate, if you are going to go with them, make sure you keep copies of all contracts, communications, and I recommend you take photos of what the venue and room looked like when you left.
We absolutely loved our venue!! Not only is it beautiful but the staff is amazing and extremely helpful and accommodating! We have gotten so many compliments on how beautiful the venue and our wedding was. Judy and Hunter y’all have an amazing place! I am so glad we chose Paniolo and have already made plans to come and stay at the B&B!!
My wife and I looked at approximately 20 wedding venues before deciding on Paniolo Ranch. We were/are 100% satisfied with our decision. There is no better way to experience the Texas Hill Country and incorporate it into your wedding!!! Amazing staff!!!
Paniolo provided us the most perfect wedding location. Our family was able to stay on site in the houses, and we stayed in the bridal suite the night of the wedding. It’s a one stop place for all of your needs. Their preferred vendors (shout out to Perfect Events) are amazing. It’s convenient because the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception are all in one location and all areas provide a beautiful setting. I highly recommend Paniolo for your event!
My husband and I were married on June 24, 2017, at Paniolo Ranch and I am so thankful to the staff there for a wonderful experience. We booked all the rooms and turned our wedding union into a family reunion with a union weekend. The rooms were decorated beautifully and our families were very comfortable. Judy and her staff did a great job making us feel special and took very good care of our family. Special shout out to Kenny who not only was an amazing bartender but was a killer pyrotechnic genius. Our evening wedding under the stars included fire bowls, music, and even fireworks. Everything was perfect and we can't wait to return to Paniolo for our anniversary :) Thanks again to Judy, Kathy, Hunter, and Kenny for a wonderful wedding weekend!
Absolutely the best location for our Union/Reunion! My brother and sister-in-law have such a sweet story. Judy and her staff made the beginning of their next chapter in life extra special! True Texas Hospitality!
Wow! What an amazing venue! My sister got married yesterday at Paniolo Ranch. Judy and Kenny made everything so personal and it was an amazing day for my sister. We all stayed on site and spent the few days before the ceremony relaxing and visiting. I can't think of a single thing that could have been done differently to make my sister's wedding dreams come to life. Thank you Paniolo Ranch for making fantasy turn into reality!
We are so happy that we decided to have our wedding here. The venue was perfect, the property was gorgeous, and the staff was amazing. The accommodations were second to none, and Judy took great care of us from the second we arrived until the moment we left. I would recommend Paniolo Ranch to any couple planning their wedding.
I was so nervous up to the day of our wedding, but Judy and her staff reassured us all along the way that everything would be wonderful and encouraged us to relax and enjoy our time leading up to the big day. It became clear from the day of rehearsal that we truly had nothing to worry about. Judy took charge and made sure everything was as promised, and as it was supposed to be. Our package with Paniolo covered everything except the musicians, DJ, and photographer - and it couldn't have been more beautiful. The bouquets were perfect, the table settings and flowers were whimsical but refined, and no one left hungry. So many guests told us they had an amazing time. We stayed in some of the houses on the property and are missing the beautiful views already. We look forward to going back at a time when we can truly relax.
We were so glad we chose Paniolo Ranch for our big day! Judy and her staff exceeded our expectations. The Lover's Only package was perfect for us- the flowers, the dinner, the room, the massages were all wonderful. Being in the beautiful Texas Hill Country was breathtaking and Paniolo Ranch was the perfect place to exchange our vows and start our lives together! Our only regret was not being able to spend more time, but we look forward to going back soon. Thank you Judy and Paniolo Ranch for helping us have the perfect start to our forever! The Wassons
My husband and I were married here on Sunday April 9th 2017. We did the Eat, Sleep, and be Married package. I am AMAZED. First off, the venue was absolutely beautiful. We live 4 hours away and my family came in from out of state, and my husbands from San Antonio, so planning was pretty stressful as it came out to be more of a 'destination wedding'. Judy and her team were more than helpful. I sent what I wanted and they made it happen--my GORGEOUS flowers, the centerpieces (which were slivers of wood cut from their very own ranch), our rooms, the bartender (hired through the ranch), our food (BBQ was perfect), the cake (also decorated and ordered through the ranch), just every single detail was more than I could have ever imagined. Judy really made us feel like we were more than just another wedding, we were welcomed into her home for breakfasts with our families, and they helped us be comfortable in every way they could. I really had a lot of expectations to feel like a princess on my wedding day, and it happened. Thank you so much to the team for making my dreams come true!
absolutely amazing!Had such a great time at this venue and they made sure everything for the wedding was perfect. We stayed a day or so after and the housing accommodations are also amazing! I would definitely recommend this venue
Great venue and atmosphere. Would definitely recommend.
We attended a wedding at Panilio Ranch. The venue was beautiful. We stayed on property. Our room was very nice and clean. I would definitely recommend this place and would like to take the family again
I got married at Paniolo Ranch on 10/1/16. We fell in love with this venue after looking at tons of pictures online. We actually didn’t see the venue in person before booking it. (We saw it for the first time on our wedding day!) I had a lot of conversations with Judy (the venue owner) and had my MOH tour it, since she lives in TX. She loved it, so we booked it. Still…I had so many reservations and spent a lot of time worrying about this, since I was leaving so much in their hands. Luckily all of my worries were COMPLETELY unnecessary. I cannot recommend this venue enough. Of course, the venue itself is absolutely perfect. It’s breathtaking, serene, and has stunning views. The landscaping is impeccable. We went with a "modified" Aloha Package - the venue was kind enough to work with us since we had such a small group. As part of the package, they provided the reception dinner and a hosted breakfast the next morning. Both were delicious and the service was great. They even kindly accommodated some last minute dietary preferences. All of our guests stayed in the on-site rooms and they were all very happy with their accommodations. All of the rooms were luxurious and well maintained - a couple of the guesthouses even had hot tubs! The Paniolo staff constantly checked in and made sure to take care of our every need. Everyone that works there is awesome and SO on top of it - they thought of things I missed, pretty much took care of all of the decor (with only vague instructions from me), and kept us stress-free and on time the day of. Basically, it’s the staff that really makes this place as wonderful as it is. A HUGE thank you to Judy and C'Ne...you helped to make our wedding day perfect in every way.
I am so happy we choose this Venue. The views were absolutely breathe taking, the staff was accomationg and understanding, and I was able to safe money by picking my own caterer, Dj, and other vendors. All my guest had a wonderful time and complemented me on the venue. My guest also loved the photo booth and probs the ranch provided for a rental fee! My day was truly amazing and this venue and their staff helped make it wonderful!
My husband and I were married at the Paniolo Ranch on November 5th. We honestly could not be happier about how our wedding weekend went. Seriously, I can't thank Judy and her amazing team enough for the wedding of our dreams. The grounds are so beautiful, it's breathtaking. We reserved the Aloha package and had our closest family and bridal party stay on site for the weekend. We had our rehearsal and dinner on Friday and the meal was incredible. Our bridal party was a rowdy bunch, and we stayed outside on the patio very late and the Paniolo crew was so patient and gracious with my rowdy bunch. The day of the wedding everything went perfect! That took so much stress off me because I knew everything was being taken care of and Judy was right around the corner with anything we needed. Food and cake were so delicious, many of our guests commented how great the food was. We had the Sunday send off brunch the next day which was excellent as well to end our wedding weekend. I really can't thank Judy and the Paniolo crew enough for such an amazing wedding, C'ne, Cathy, Kenny, Hunter, Carli- you all were so patient and attentive to everything. Thank you. :)
We loved our stay at Paniolo! We were members of a wedding party for a wedding at Paniolo and guests at the Ranch during the wedding weekend. Our room (the Lennai room), was very spacious and comfortable, and the king bed was incredible. The wedding venue is gorgeous - beautiful scenery (Texas hill country sunsets are unbeatable!), and lovely reception site. We also enjoyed the hospitality of our hosts, with lovely, laid-back breakfasts each morning and all we needed supplied during our stayed. We highly recommend this as both a wedding venue and as a great place to stay! (-Elizabeth and Randall Korver-Glenn)
My husband and I got married at Paniolo Ranch on 10/08/16 and it was absolutely amazing! The venue itself is one of a kind, with all of the elements of an elegant, outdoor, hill country wedding incorporated. The staff was extremely helpful and super flexible with us! We also had our wedding party and some of our family stay out at the venue in the B&B's. They we're all impressed by houses and happy to be staying at the venue. I highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a relaxed and beautiful area to be married at. Thanks again to Judy and her team! -Katie S
