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... Read More 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

It was magical.... The décor inside the venue was also spectacular with lights shining down on the centerpiece of each table. There is a stage for the live band and the sound and acoustics were amazing! The bridal suite and bedroom was very spacious and again, designed with perfection and five star class!

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.

Wedding/Reception review

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... Read More everyone stay at the bed and breakfast and they all enjoyed their accommodations. Overall, everything went very well. 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.

The venue was booked for wedding on May 23, 2015. Judy and her staff are awesome. We of course planned for an outdoor evening wedding with a backup for inside in case of rain, of which both were beautiful. Unfortunately, the 30 year flood came that evening and delayed the wedding an extra day…luckily everyone was able to accommodate us the next day and it all came together. Judy, Hunter, and the rest of the staff ensured our daughter’s wedding day was a “bride and groom dream day”. I can’t tell you how many of our guests commented on how lovely the venue was. Despite the delay it was an absolutely beautiful wedding. I’m sure their first year anniversary will be spent there to really enjoy the many personal touches Paniolo Ranch has to offer. Thank your Judy and Hunter! One note – if you plan to use the onsite guest homes and change your mind ensure you cancel 14 days prior! Read your contract and go over all details 30 days prior to wedding so there aren’t any surprises.

My husband and I got married during a weekend of what could have turned out to be a huge disappointment. The weekend we chose to get married happened to be the same weekend that the skies opened up and flooded most of the Hill Country. The time of the wedding came and went and... Read More my, now husband, along with some of his family, who stayed out there, some of his groomsmen, and even the DJ, were stuck out at the venue. I was on my way out there with my Maid of Honor, but couldn't get through due to new rivers rushing across where there used to be roads. We weren't sure if we were going to be able to reschedule without having to pay for everything all over again. The owners of Paniolo Ranch, Judy and her son, Hunter, came to our rescue. They said if the weather got better, we were more than welcome to have the wedding the next day, without an extra charge. We called all of the vendors and one by one, they said they would be able to go back out there the next day, also without having to pay extra. The weather just so happened to be perfect the next day and a good portion of our guests were able to make it. Everything was perfect! So many of our guests complimented the choice of venue and how smooth everything went. A special thanks to Hunter, who was out there with everyone that night.

Let me start by saying that I'm so glad we chose Paniolo Ranch for our wedding. The venue is breathtaking, and it set the tone for the whole wedding. We had looked at a lot of other venues before we drove up to Paniolo, and the second we pulled in the driveway, I told my then... Read More fiance, "This is it." The only reason I'm not giving it five stars all around is that I definitely experienced some of what other reviewers have mentioned about the lack of staff responsiveness and communication. Though we always eventually got an answer, we frequently had to stay on top of the staff for days when we asked questions. This especially made me a little nervous when we rented our linens from them. The numbers changed several times and since we sometimes didn't get confirmation of receipt, I was definitely worried that we might show up and find we didn't have enough. This didn't happen, though. Everything went off without a hitch. My only other complaint is that because there was a wedding at the venue the night before ours, we didn't get access to the venue until 12:00pm the day of the wedding. I don't know what the policy is at other venues, but we definitely could have used some extra time to set up. I hadn't even had time to shower when the make-up artist arrived at 3:30pm. All this being said, I wouldn't have wanted to get married anywhere else. Several of our guests told us that it was the most beautiful wedding venue they had ever been to. To top it off, the fact that there is a B&B on site means that my now husband and I can go back and visit whenever we want, and we definitely plan to do so.

Wonderful Experience!

My Husband and I tied the knot at the beautiful Paniolo Ranch on October 24th and it was a huge success. The number one question I received from my guests throughout the night was, "how did you find this place?" Everyone was floored at how beautiful the venue is, from the... Read More natural beauty of the Hill Country as a backdrop, to the beautiful on-site landscaping and stonework. When I was originally looking for our venue, I knew that I didn't want the themey barn wedding that has become so popular, instead a place that showcases Texas' beauty without being so literally "country". Paniolo is just this. It has just the perfect amount of rustic touches to go with the elegant furnishings and finishes. The pictures on the website won me over but even the pictures don't do this place justice. It is even more beautiful in person and we didn't look further after our first visit to Paniolo. One of my concerns about going with an outdoor ceremony was having to move inside if the weather didn't cooperate but the indoor venue's walls open up so that there is an outdoor feel if the ceremony has to take place indoors. I would have been equally happy with the ceremony, had that been the case. In fact we did have the walls pushed up during our reception and it was a big hit with our guests. They loved being able to move from indoor to outdoor while still being part of the reception. Judy and the team are extremely nice and were very accommodating to us. Our families also stayed at the houses on the ranch and they were all very nice, clean, and comfortable. They too are beautifully decorated. If you are considering Paniolo, please go see this place in person, you will not be disappointed. I'm so happy we did!
