Marquardt Ranch

Hill Country



The Marquardt Ranch was built specifically to celebrate Texas Hill Country weddings in style! A wedding at Marquardt Ranch is infused with Texas pride as this property is part of a historical legacy of early German settlers, and has been owned by the Marquardt family for over 100 years. The property offers a majestic view of the Guadalupe River. Surrounded by large cypress trees and the natural beauty of the Texas Hill Country, the river is the perfect spot for stunning photo opportunities. This venue has options for indoor and outdoor celebrations. The reception hall has an 11-foot glass cross that captures the sunset against a majestic rock wall and can be set up with chairs to look like a beautiful church for the ceremony and then transformed for a reception. For outdoor ceremonies, picture yourself walking down the natural stone paved aisle while your guests sit among the shade trees on the verdant lawn. The serenity you have always desired for your big day will be achieved by the peacefulness of a private ranch wedding and celebration.
