“I highly recommend The Venue for your wedding or next big event!”

September 13, 2019

Being from Fredericksburg, its so hard to find a place that can accommodate a big German family and still show the beautiful Hill Country, but The Venue was able to accomplish that! The views are breathtaking and the facilities were perfect for getting ready and the reception. Mary was very helpful and accommodating! I highly recommend The Venue for your wedding or next big event!

“We couldn't have asked for a better place to join our lives and celebrate together.”

August 16, 2019

The Venue was absolutely perfect for our wedding of 230 guests! The facility is gorgeous and the outside ceremony site allows guests to breath in the country side while enjoying the celebration. The owners are amazing and always ready to help or give advice! Mary is quick to answer any questions and is happy to work with you on special requests. We couldn't have asked for a better place to join our lives and celebrate together.

“The interior design of the venue was done beautifully”

April 15, 2019

This venue was a dream location to host our special day! It is located on a private ranch and provides a 360 degree view of Texas hill country. The interior design of the venue was done beautifully as we needed little decor, and the brides/grooms suite are spacious and provide a perfect place to get ready on the day-of. The Eckerts were a pleasure to work with and were responsive to any questions we had throughout the planning process. I highly recommend The Venue at Rafter E Ranch!

Mary stayed vigilant in all our plans throughout the planning and during the event. Her vendor recommendations were on point!!! It was a destination wedding, therefore, leaving all our guest speechless on the surrounding beauty of The Venue at Rafter E Ranch. Needless to say, everyone took advantage of the gorgeous scenery for personal family pictures!! Definitely recommend such an amazing hidden GEM!!!

“Nothing beats the view of the Texas hill country in the background as you say your vows to that one person you have decided to spend the rest of your life with.”

February 8, 2019

The Venue at Rafter E Ranch is hands down the best place in Fredericksburg to have your wedding! My husband and I were so incredibly happy with the whole experience; nothing beats the view of the Texas hill country in the background as you say your vows to that one person you have decided to spend the rest of your life with. Mary was wonderful, and so helpful on the wedding day. She went above and beyond to help us make our wedding wonderful, especially with the rain we had off and on all day. I’ll say the double rainbow we got after the rain was just the icing on the cake. You won’t be disappointed if you choose this venue, every one of our guests went on and on about how beautiful the location was.

“The views from the wedding ceremony are breath taking.”

November 10, 2018

“I signed my contract with The Venue at Rafter E four or five months before the venue was even done. I put all my trust into Mary and her husband to not only have the venue done, but for it to be as beautiful as they envisioned. My expectations were completely met once the venue was complete just months before my wedding in November. Mary and her family have done an outstanding job with this venue. They are hands on and SO easy to work with. I have highly enjoyed working with Mary. I am so upset that it's all over with. The views from the wedding ceremony are breath taking. I hosted about 270 guest comfortably. “
