Venue Setting

King River Ranch is a world-class wedding and special event venue on the banks of the great Pedernales River, a Texas treasure in the magnificent Hill Country on the flourishing Texas Wine Trail between Austin and Fredericksburg. Built on 25 powerfully diverse and panoramic acres in the heart of the Cowboy Country, the ranch sits directly upon land continuously settled by Comanche tribes dating back millenia, a story told by countless arrowheads and artifacts found here. K.R.R. is owned and was designed by global event designer of Willem-Aidan, floral & event design house to the celebrity lounges at the Screen Actor's Guild Awards, Cadillac and Audi. The ranch features magnificent backdrops in every direction; our River Terrace built into the Pedernales River Valley, dramatic black rock riverbanks, perfectly manicured grounds and our magnificent King Barn bordered by serene horse-filled pastures and a pond straight out of a Mark Twain novel, fireflies and all. This is the Texas the rest of the world dreams about.

Venue Features
The Scene:
King River Ranch is a true Texas experience deep within its very heart, quite literally. Located in the hometown of President Lyndon B. Johnson, two miles from the post office where he was inagurated and six miles from his Texas White House, the very land upon which King River Ranch is built has been continuously settled by generations of Comanche people dating back over a millenium, then settled by descendants of the Texas Rangers. And they chose this site for a reason. Surrounded by thousands of acres of uninterrupted rolling hills and longhorns, the ranch still lies only 1.8 miles from the famous 290 Wine Trail featuring approximately fifty cutting-edge wineries within minutes from us. Our gates are directly on the Pedernales River welcoming our guests with a charming winding driveway taking them past expansive lawns, perfectly manicured grounds, windmills, magnificent oak trees, and of course, the iconic river that feeds Lake Travis.  25 acres of incredibly diverse and picture-perfect vistas greets you in every direction. On one side of the road, the sparkling river straddles a quarter mile of the property. On the other, the King Barn sits majestically over a half-acre tranquil Tom Sawyer'esque fishing pond with boat dock. Further down the drive, the River Cottage and Lodge 39 are unparelled private wedding party quarters with direct access to the 2,600 sq. ft. River Terrace, built into the dramatic rocky banks of the Pedernales River Valley. On the other side of the cottages, an expansive pasture filled with horses, miniature donkeys and St. Croix sheep shelters the heart of King River Ranch, our beloved animals.  
Design:
This venue was expertly and thoughtfully designed by the C.E.O. and lead designer of Willem-Aidan, floral & event designer to the celebrity lounges at the Screen Actor's Guild Awards, Cadillac and exclusively to Audi since 2010, drawing from years of working in the world's most renowned hotels, resorts and exquisite venues. The King Barn is built of 100% Ponderosa Pine in a Great Western style and features dramatic rows of rustic chandeliers, wall sconces, full insulation/climate-control, electrical system for event lighting/entertainment, caterer's area. The River Terrace features a river backdrop, grand staircase, paved with dramatic Texas flagstone, 22' planters, beatufiul garden with oak trees. K.R.R. offers clients some of the most spacious and luxuriant private wedding party quarters in the industry. Our River Cottage and Lodge 39 offer both wedding parties world-class amenities and were exquisitely designed to be an important part of the overall event.
