Elegant Fall-Colors Hill Country Wedding at King River Ranch

Wednesday, March 8th, 2017

“It was Jill’s smile, full of life and joy, that captivated me in her profile picture on Match.com,” Marina says. “We met for the first time at the Memorial Park running trails in Houston. She was so radiant, sweet, funny and smart. I was immediately besotted with her. The more time I spent with her, the more I saw that what most people would think are flaws are actually her perfections, just reaffirming over and over again that she truly was the one for me. I was most certainly going to marry this woman. And what a woman she is.”

As for Jill, well, “I had given up on love,” she says, “and then came Marina. She was so certain all along that we were meant to be. I was skeptical… could this be the real thing? Could love endure and grow into a lasting relationship? Marina’s love opened my eyes and kindled a fire in my heart. And she was right…we were in fact, meant to be. She’s beautiful, smart, funny, with a heart full of love. I am caught…forever.” And so are we. Join us in celebrating Houston couple Marina and Jill’s beautiful destination wedding at breathtaking King River Ranch, one of our absolute favorite Hill Country wedding venues.

Hill Country Spotlight: King River Ranch PLUS Exclusive Booking Offer

A private quarter mile of the rushing Pedernales River is the dramatic backdrop for ceremonies at King River Ranch. And that’s just the beginning.

From the first moment David Hahn set his eyes on the site of what would become King River Ranch, he was smitten with its spectacular natural beauty. He was also captivated with the ranch’s uniquely Texan history, first as the location of generations of thriving Comanche settlements, and more recently as a development undertaken by a former president of the Texas Rangers Foundation.

Hahn knew he had found the exact place he had been looking for—and set about creating, on the site, a wedding venue that countless couples have come to feel the same instant connection with, the moment they arrive at this stunning spot, located at the start of Hill Country’s famed 290 Wine Trail.

We, too, are smitten with King River Ranch, for more reasons than there are bluebonnets in bloom on a spring day on the venue’s sprawling acreage.

But here are just a few of our favorites:

  • The Barn, crafted from 100% Ponderosa pine, and bordered by a picturesque pond on one side, and an awe-inspiring horse pasture filled with friendly livestock out the other—a perfect spot for a rustic-elegant reception where dancing spins on late into the night.

  • The getting-prepped areas, with 3,000 square feet of luxurious space that includes a makeup and hair studio, a two-story fireplace, a veranda with river views, and, for the guys, plenty of diversions (large-screen TV, foosball, wet bar and more) to keep them occupied while the gals get ready for the big day.

  • The service offerings, which include floral and design artistry from Willem-Aiden, King River Ranch’s on-site decor firm, and a former event design provider for clients including the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards, American Idol, Cadillac and Audi (Hahn headed up Willem-Aiden in Los Angeles before setting his sights on a more easygoing Hill Country lifestyle).
