What You Should Know

Weddings at the Paniolo Ranch are unforgettable. The events team understands that every couple is unique and so the team has created various packages to provide a variety of service levels.

The “I Did It May Way” package is designed to give you the venue of your dreams for 12 hours between noon and midnight on your wedding day. With the flexibility to hire your own vendors for catering, flowers, photography and more, you have use of all venue sites on the premises. You also have use of luxurious dressing rooms for both the bride and groom. The venue provides tables and chiavari chairs to seat up to 260 guests, as well as rectangular tables for the reception. Your event also includes use of the on-site catering kitchen, an ice machine, a projector and screen, gas fire bowls, exciting event lighting, surround sound and a PA system. On-site parking is provided for your guests and a manager is on duty throughout your event. You also receive a two-hour engagement photo session.

The “Sweetest Nuptials” package is a four-hour all-inclusive creation designed by the events team. This package includes the outdoor ceremony site for a morning or afternoon event. The venue provides you with an officiant for the ceremony, the bride’s bouquet, the groom’s boutonniere and use of the surround-sound system. After the ceremony, a cocktail reception follows that includes buffet tables covered with linens and floral arrangements. The team serves a champagne toast, non-alcoholic beverages, cheese and fruit platters, pastries and appetizers and the wedding cake. The base guest count for this package is 15, but you are able to add additional guests for an extra fee.

A special destination-style wedding package is also available. This package includes overnight accommodations for up to 26 guests in the separate guest houses located on the premises.

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... Read More 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.

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... Read More 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.

Unfortunately, we did not have the best experience at Paniolo Ranch. It was our 4th stop of the day touring venues and we were really excited to see the place based on pictures and good reviews. Let me start by saying the facility is beautiful and we loved all the amenities... Read More Paniolo Ranch had to offer. We were extremely disappointed by the manner in which our tour was conducted. The young lady who showed us around looked like she had just rolled out of bed (messy hair, no makeup, sloppy clothes, etc) and did not conduct herself in a professional manner. When we asked if she was the wedding coordinator, she replied that she mostly bartends and is there "to make sure no one does anything stupid." This struck us as odd and raised questions in our minds about the professionalism of the staff at Paniolo Ranch. First impressions are everything, and unfortunately, the young lady representing the facility did not instill confidence in us about using the venue. While the venue itself is stunning, we were so disappointed in the manner in which it was presented, that we chose another facility for our wedding. There are many wedding venues in the vicinity of Paniolo Ranch that you would think they'd put their best foot forward for every tour, but sadly, every other venue we toured that day was head and shoulders above them when it came to professionalism. It really is a shame that's the impression we were left with of such a beautiful venue.

I had my wedding and reception here in September 2015. I also rented out the entire bed and breakfast for the weekend since I had a lot of out of town family. The venue itself is beautiful and all my guests raved about the wedding and reception. It was very convenient to have...

I particularly enjoyed working with the owner's son and his wife and the other staff at the venue. They were all very accommodating and friendly. I would recommend this place a reception and wedding venue. A few things to be aware of: They charge gratuity on the fee for using the venue. That gratuity is in addition to gratuity for any services that are provided such as alcohol service, security guards and maid service. I would confirm you can use something at your wedding or reception before you buy it. Ask for a list of things they don't allow prior to starting your planning. The venue decided they didn't want to allow kegs anymore after I already bought them. I was luckily able to return them and buy bottles - but it was way more expensive for me to buy bottles. I also bought confetti for the tables and they told me the day before the wedding I wasn't allowed to use it.
