In-House Services

At the Marquardt Ranch, you can enjoy more than the Hill Country views and the beautiful Guadalupe River backdrop when you say your “I Do’s.”  With the benefit of in-house services, you can expect to work with a centralized point of contact for a streamlined planning process that puts the stressful parts of wedding preparation on us, so you have the good memories to look back on.  Getting to know our couples allows us to make suggestions that suit your style from food that will wow your guests, to flowers stylized to fit the wedding day vision you’ve always dreamed of.


Before the wedding, each bride takes part in a consultation with our floral team, allowing her to share her vision. We get to know each of our brides so we can bring their flower dreams to life.


Every dish is prepared fresh by our caterers in our on-site, commercial kitchen. Couples can choose from a variety of menu options and visit us for a custom tasting before their big day.


Our coordinators can take the planning out of your hands on the big day. We want to help make your dream a reality, so you can focus on making memories and your new journey as husband and wife.

Real Marquardt Ranch Weddings

Love From Our Clients

“There are not enough words to explain all of the reasons you absolutely have to choose The Marquardt Ranch for your wedding! First, the venue its self is hands down the most beautiful venue you could ever dream of! Not only is the inside of the Ranch gorgeous but the outdoor ceremony site overlooking the river is absolutely breathtaking! Numerous people commented after our wedding how incredible it was to hear the water from the river during the silent moments of our ceremony. With all of the planning and stress that came prior to our wedding, having those moments with only the sound of the river in the background was so peaceful and romantic! Onto the food and flowers provided by the Ranch - amazing! We served beef tenderloin with mashed potatoes and green beans and it tasted just as wonderful the day of for 150+ people as it did in our intimate tasting prior to the wedding. The staff served the salads and entrees in such a timely manner and it seemed as though no one was stuck waiting to get their table bussed and the next portion of the meal served. The flowers that the Ranch ordered and put together were my absolute favorite part of our day. The colors and arrangements were so unique and elegant and fit right into the vision that I had always dreamed of! The floral consult prior to the wedding allowed us to talk about everything I was thinking and really helped to turn my dream into reality!! Last but not least, the staff - Jessica and Sheryl. These two women, I believe, were truly put on this planet to help brides execute their absolute perfect wedding! The two complement each other so beautifully as Jessica handles all of the floral aspects of the day while Sheryl manages the catering portion. They both are so intelligent and knowledgeable and you truly can trust that they will do everything you've ever hoped for and even more. You absolutely, without a doubt will not go wrong in booking The Marquardt Ranch for your wedding day!!”


“I highly recommend this venue to any couple looking for a beautiful outdoor wedding, that has the hill country feel with elegance. However, this venue doesn't just receive five stars because of how beautiful it is. Sheryl, the coordinator is absolutely amazing. She cares about you and really makes every effort to make you feel comfortable and in love with every aspect of your day. They worked with us every step of the way, in giving us advice and meeting our every wish. They are a well run machine, extremely organized and great communication leading up to our day. Additionally, the food was incredible- from the appetizers to dinner. Nothing but praise from our guests. You will not be disappointed! Excellent venue!”


“The Marquardt Ranch is beautiful!! If you are looking for a nice intimate, not too big venue, that is just awesome, you should choose this one! The staff is awesome, friendly, and professional. Sheryl, my wedding manager, was just so helpful and sweet! I am going to miss her! The food is great! They have their own kitchen and chef, very easy to work with rather than having to find a caterer. I just loved my wedding here and I hope you choose this venue for your wedding!”


“If we could give The Marquardt Ranch 100 stars we would do it in a heartbeat. From the first day we visited The Marquardt we felt like we were at home, and after spending two hours with Sheryl and Jessica we felt like we were leaving old friends. We were beyond excited that we also happened to have found the place where we would get married. At the time of booking, Sheryl gave a list of vendors that they recommended, I used every single vendor and everything, I mean EVERYTHING went so smooth. Throughout the entire planning process Sheryl and Jessica were there to address any question/concern that we had. They truly were our wedding fairy godparents. They have enough experience and creativity to not only find a solution to your problems, but to also use your ideas/what they know about you as a couple to help come up with a plan that is a 100 times better than your original one. So, not only do you end up with wedding fairy godparents if you choose The Marquardt Ranch, you also end up with a truly STUNNING venue that is completely unique. Trust me, you will enjoy every minute that you are there. The views around the Ranch are absolutely breathtaking and felt like something out of a story book. Choosing The Marquardt Ranch was the best decision we made while planning our wedding , and if we were to do it all over again, we would pick The Marquardt Ranch every time.”


“This venue is incredible! It is in the most beautiful spot right on the river. My favorite part of our ceremony was hearing the river behind us. Sheryl and the rest of the team helped us every step of the way. They were extremely responsive and answered every question we had. We are still hearing from guests about how beautiful our venue was. We used their catering and floral service and were so happy with it all! The food was delicious and the flowers were stunning. Planning was so easy with Sheryl's help and everything that the venue has to offer. I would absolutely recommend the ranch to anyone considering it!”


“I don't think I could have chosen a better wedding venue. The Marquardt Ranch is absolutely stunning! The staff is also phenomenal. Sheryl was my day of coordinator (also my day to day point of contact) and let me say, she is AMAZING. Every step of the day flowed smoother than I could have ever imagined and she was able to adjust and bend in the blink of an eye without inducing any additional stress or concern. I had compliment after compliment on what a beautiful venue the Marquardt Ranch was and was told several times it was one of the best weddings people had ever been to. I was a little concerned at first as I felt the rental fee for the venue was a little steep, but in the end it was clear to see that it was totally worth it. Thank you to the Marquardt Ranch for everything!”


“This venue was perfect for us. Everyone there loves their job and it shows at the wedding. The food was good, flowers were absolutely beautiful and everyone was so helpful in making our day run smoothly!!!! And the place itself is gorgeous!!!!”


“We had the honor of being married at the Marquardt Ranch on April 22, and it was more than we could have ever hoped for. Outside of the one of a kind venue, the service was impeccable. Working with Sheryl was as easy and laid back as we could have ever hoped for. If we needed something, or had a question, her or Jessica were all over it. Their experience and understanding of current wedding trends made it easy for us to describe what we were after. Also, we used the onsite floral - WOW, beyond our expectations! We knew when we walked in that Marquardt Ranch was the one, and we've never regretted it for a second. Thank you Sheryl and team for an absolutely perfect day!”


“The Marquardt Ranch was the first and last venue we looked at when planning our wedding. My husband and I fell in love with the place as soon as we walked in! The overall beauty of the place is astonishing and requires very little decoration because it is already perfect! We had our ceremony outside in March and our reception inside afterwards and it couldn't have gone any smoother. Sheryl is amazing, incredibly easy to work with, and makes sure everything is exactly like you want it. The food was delicious and the wait staff was great! If you want to ease your wedding planning stress, this is the place to book as your venue. They are just so easy to work with!”


“The Marquardt Ranch is THE absolute perfect venue! It was everything we hoped for and more. I had done A LOT of research on different venues before we actually went to visit any. I looked at what each venue had to offer and the price for every detail. I contacted many different places, but none compared to The Marquardt Ranch. I told my husband that we weren’t going to make a decision until we looked at other places, but after our visit at TMR, it was such an easy decision, and the best one we could have made. Sheryl and Jessica are beyond amazing. They helped my mom and I put together the wedding of my dreams! Each and every email I sent was answered in such a timely manner, and they were always available to answer the phone or return voicemails as soon as possible. The day of the wedding, the staff was extremely welcoming and generous. Numerous staff members, including the amazing chef, came to check on me, and my bridesmaids, to make sure everything was running smoothly. Sheryl made sure we were fully taken care of on our wedding day, and we are forever grateful for her all of her hard work. Our guests raved about how delicious the food and appetizers were, and about how gorgeous the venue was both inside and out. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect place to celebrate our BIG day. My husband said as we were driving away, “We should come back and have our 25th anniversary here.” He loved it just as much as I did.”


“Absolutely the best VENUE around! Our wedding was 7-7-17 and we had such an amazing experience. Beautiful place and best staff we could've ever asked to work with. This PLACE IS A MUST! Call them and go visit asap, they book quick. Great prices and food was outstanding! Altogether the perfect day, venue, memory!”


“The Marquardt Ranch was an AMAZING venue!! The ceremony site is gorgeous overlooking the river, there was plenty of room for all of out guests to sit comfortably (230+) in the reception hall, and the staff was absolutely incredible incredible. Sheryl and Jessica were there to answer all of my questions and never made me feel like I was bothering them, they were instrumental in creating our perfect wedding day. All of our guests raved about how beautiful the venue was and how delicious the food was at dinner. Choosing to have our wedding at the Marquardt Ranch was one of the best decisions we made. You will not be disappointed if you choose to have your wedding here!”


“We couldn’t have pictured a more beautiful ceremony and reception space for our wedding! The staff (especially Sheryl and Jessica) were amazing to work with and very professional. The food was just as delicious as it was during our tasting and we are still getting compliments about how perfect our venue was 🙂 Marquardt Ranch went above and beyond all of our expectations and I can’t recommend them enough! ”


“We absolutely loved our wedding venue and could not have been happier despite being married on a cloudy and misty day. We are so happy our photographers (Crystal and Sam) from Olvera photography recommended this venue to us. We kept getting compliments from our guests regarding the beautiful location and great food. Very happy to have gotten married here. This place will always hold a special place in our hearts!”


“We had our daughter's wedding here recently, and it was absolutely beautiful. The staff was very sweet and accommodating, a joy to work with. The food was delicious. We highly recommend the Marquardt!”


“The venue is absolutely beautiful and everything I ever wanted! The staff was friendly and answered my million questions in timely manner! Staff helped when I was setting up and made sure to follow my timeline so things ran smoothly. Food was a hit. The tower is amazing to take pictures but is slightly hard to get to!”


“This venue was the absolute best thing ever!! Every single person working there was so helpful and so nice! Sheryl, was just absolutely amazing and answered EVERY SINGLE questions we had! She never once said, I’m not sure about that. She was on top of everything and always responded very quickly. It was so helpful that the flowers and the food were on site! The flowers were my favorite part. They have an amazing florist. I still have guests commenting on “the best bbq they have ever had,”& “the best wedding food they have ever had.” I don’t have one single bad thing to say about this perfect venue!!!”


“May 2018-This Venue was a Blessing from above!!! The Staff, Jessica and Sheryl were so kind and amazing! They worked with us every step of the way. The design and that beautiful cross in the wall of the building was the topping to the cake. Our wedding was the BEST DAY EVER- I am just getting the pictures back and the Whole Venue made the pictures just amazing. Memories forever for sure. You will be in love with the venue just as I was. I would suggest this place for any wedding!!!! Thank you to everyone who helped make our Wedding memories to last For ever!!! Lots of Love to THE MARQUARDT RANCH!!!!”


“The Marquardt Ranch was the best option we could have chosen for our wedding. I have gotten so many compliments on the venue and the stunning backdrop. Sheryl and Jessica made the experience so easy and took my vision and multiplied it by 1000. The wedding turned out way better than I had pictured. I got tons of compliments on the floral décor we had provided by the TMR as well. I would not have changed anything about the venue. If your considering this venue, I would say 1000% your in good hands.”


“Absolutely stunning in every way imaginable! This venue is the one for a princess. To start off when I pulled up to the venue I started to cry and I called to cancel all my other appointments with any other venue. It was no competition that this was the place I was going to be married at. With in house catering, floral, and coordinator; this is the place to be. My day was everything I wanted it to be because of the staff here. They truly care about YOU the day of and the months leading up to your wedding. I live about 5 hours away and was able to talk with Sheryl or Jessica at almost any moment. They broke things down to very simple and kept it organized for you on pricing and if they had a question would not hesitate to ask for clarifications. I could not have asked/dreamed of a more perfect place to marry my husband. I love that they make sure YOUR dreams come true and wait to hear your final thoughts instead of everyone else's.”
