  • Our wedding experience at Star Hill Ranch could not have been any better. From beginning to end, everyone went above and beyond to make everything perfect for our special day. We were worried about weather issues and guest numbers and were completely put at ease with all of the options available for both ceremony and reception. inside or outside.... so many great options. This venue and it's staff are truly amazing. Ture professionals and exceptionally friendly! We would book another wedding there in a heartbeat!

  • Of all the comments people had about our wedding day after the fact, the top one was "and we just LOVED that venue! How the heck did you guys find such a special place?" We booked the venue while living in a different state, after my parents scouted it out. They knew instantly that it was the perfect fit for us, and they were right. If you are looking for a charming, intimate, rustic, memorable space to get married or host an event, this is the place to do it. We can't wait to visit again soon, and Star Hill Ranch will always hold a special place in our hearts.

    Thank you so much for the kind words! Your Mom and Dad were absolutely instrumental in your wedding process, and in addition to counting you and Kaleb as family members, Wayne and Theresa will also always have a special place in our hearts! Hope to have you taking pictures at SHR soon!

  • Absolutely perfect! Our October wedding was everything we wanted an more. The weather through us for a loop but thankfully we had a rain plan. Which Matt and Adam so generously whipped up for me the day before. They left my mind at ease throughout the entire planning process. Matt was always readily available for any random questions I had in the planning process; tables, layout, caterers etc. on the day of I was blessed with Renee, day of coordinator. She helped take my vision and bring it to life. Except I didn’t have to lift a finger. She is calm, cool and collected. Definitely made the rain become an after thought on my wedding day. Me and the girls spent our day getting ready in the bridal suite which was a perfect touch and highlight that I absolutely recommend. It was spacious for me and my 7 bridesmaids and some family. Being able to get ready on site was really neat because we could take a walk and see the venue coming to life. I cannot express how AMAZING the ranch is in it... Read more

  • My husband and I got married at Star Hill two weeks ago and it was a magical experience. Not only are the grounds stunning and historical, but Matt and Renee Woolley are honest, salt-of-the-earth people that made our wedding so special. Matt accommodated our budget and worked with us to make sure we could still have a special experience without breaking the bank. Renee's wedding coordinator services on the day of the wedding were invaluable. She managed everything for us so we didn't have to worry about anything. Matt was extremely attentive for months, answering our many random questions with kindness and timeliness. Over the few months of planning, Matt truly became our family. I can't recommend Star Hill enough for a special, one-of-a-kind experience.

  • We had our ceremony and reception at Star Hill Ranch on 9/28/18 and I cannot speak highly enough about our experience working with them. The venue itself is gorgeous and offers a ton of options on where to hold events and how to set them up. Main Street and each of the buildings themselves are so picturesque they hardly need additional decorating. We already have a ton of pictures just from what has been shared with us from friends and family, and a huge part of that is thanks to how unique this venue is. There are so many details to take in, our guests were snapping photos all over the place. We worked primarily with Matt, who is so kind, upbeat, and reassuring. He offered solutions when I had questions and really put us at ease that our event would come off without a hitch. He's also super flexible, offering options for contingency plans and ideas to make the best use of the space. We also hired Renee as our day-of coordinator. She was absolutely fantastic--if there were any hiccu... Read more

  • I honestly can't say enough good things about this venue and the brothers who own it. It is an absolute gem of a place. We had a destination wedding in Austin, with the majority of our guests coming in from NYC. They were absolutely delighted with Star Hill-- an authentic old Texas town that makes you feel like you're on the set of Westworld. No one could stop taking pictures. There are so many locations for you to utilize on-site, from an old-time saloon to a big dance hall. It's really a creative playground, and especially for those looking to amp up the Texas vibes, it is the best venue out there. And that's just my review of the actual venue. When you book there, you get an insanely wonderful added bonus: the Wooley brothers, the owners and operators. These guys go absolutely above and beyond the call of duty. My husband and I worked primarily with Matt, and from the very beginning he was a ray of sunshine, warm and full of genuine passion for the amazing place he and his broth... Read more

  • My now husband and I found this venue on google search and we fell in love with it just from seeing the photos and reading the description. We flew in from Los Angeles to check it out in person and it absolutely exceeded our expectations. Star Hill Ranch is such an awesome venue with unique atmosphere and fun structures throughout which can be used for different purposes. We used the bride’s cottage, the groom’s quarters, the reception hall for a band and dance, the Fitzhugh for dining, and of course the charming little chapel and our guests loved it all. What made the place even more special was its co-owner Matt who is very passionate about his work and helping people through what can be a very stressful process. We felt he was truly happy for us and wanted to help in any way possible. He was always extremely generous with his time and had a great, can-do attitude no matter what issues we threw at him. Our wedding turned out perfect and we couldn’t have done it without him. We... Read more

  • I cannot say enough positive things about Star Hill Ranch. The people, location, and flexibility offered by this venue really make it stand above the rest. We chose Star Hill Ranch because it fit our vision of a “fun but tasteful” wedding and because of how the owners cared for us. The People: From our first visit, co-owner Matt helped make sure our wedding was perfect. He even was there on the day-of to coordinate with our planner and help make sure things went smoothly! In other words, my husband and I were treated as people, not just another client. The Location: Star Hill Ranch is located in the beautiful Texas hill country, only 30 minutes west of downtown Austin. Whether you are a local or planning a destination wedding, Star Hill Ranch is far enough out to get away from city traffic but close enough for those who want to explore Austin. SHR is also conveniently located next to several different options for lodging and a small shopping area (for food and those last minu... Read more

  • I can’t say enough good things about Star Hill Ranch. In all honesty, when we booked our appointment to view the venue, it was our plan B. After meeting Matt and seeing the amazing venue, we called the other place and cancelled our viewing. Just the idea of working with Matt was so exciting and we were so overjoyed with how helpful & welcoming he was. We immediately felt like he was on our team and wanted what was best for us. Matt made the planning process so much easier; he responded immediately to my constant questions and gave us amazing advice that made the day so much more special. The venue was kind of the coolest place we had ever seen. We never thought we’d get married in an Old Texas town but it was absolutely magical.The multiple weather options in event spaces was so intriguing to us. I have to say, introducing us to Renee (the onsite day-of coordinator) was an absolute blessing. We didn’t have to worry about a thing and she really did bust her butt for us all day/nig...

  • As a very type A person, if I know I am about to drop some serious cash, I make sure I know what I’m doing. I researched 30 locations across Texas and painstakingly created detailed spreadsheets of all the amenities, costs, and requirements for my future wedding/reception venue. We visited the 5 top locations based on price, amenities, friendliness of staff, and location. To say that I am detail-oriented planner is an understatement; so, when I say that Star Hill Ranch checked all the boxes, I mean ALL the boxes. The location is beautiful and it is lovingly maintained with blooming flowers, outdoor spaces, and sun set backdrops fit for postcards. The space is set up to accommodate both indoor and outdoor weddings and receptions, which was a requirement for me, how unpredictable Texas weather can be. Case and point: I took 2 years to plan my outdoor wedding and reception. Guess what happened on the most important and likely most expensive day of our lives… why yes. Yes, it was spi... Read more

  • Matt Wooley of Star Hill treated us like family from our first visit to the sparkler send-off. He stayed in constant contact with us, answered all questions promptly and thoroughly, and was so incredibly kind and accommodating, it was as if we were old friends. He gave us absolutely every opportunity to set up early and made excellent recommendations on every level of the process. The venue is stunning, so beautiful and was the perfect setting for a supremely unique, beautiful, and utterly joyful day - it was the best party I've ever BEEN to, let alone thrown. I can't give any higher recommendation to Star Hill and their staff. I've been playing it over in my head for weeks - your guest will have a blast here (and so will you), and the Star Hill team will give you the royal treatment.

  • Star Hill Ranch I can't stop smiling when I think of our daughter's wedding at Star Hill Ranch. It was perfect. Perfection is not easy to achieve, but we did thanks to Adam & Matt Wooley’s unique venue, professionalism and true caring for the engaged couple & our family. We felt, from the first conversation on the phone late on weekday to the moment we were packing up gifts and decorations, 13 months later, that we were friends & not just another business transaction. Star Hill is special because of its unique setting, history & beautiful surroundings. But it's perfect because of these 2 brothers & their true desire to give brides & grooms & their family their dream day. Suggestions & guidance, great ideas & backup plans, a list of vendors that all strive for excellence at a reasonable cost, like awesome bbq (Railroad Bar-B-Que), to incredible photography by Mill Studio & the best Day of Coordinator, Renee - all come together to create the most magical day. ...

  • We had our wedding at Star Hill Ranch and it was such a great experience! We had so many compliments on the venue. Everyone thought it was so much fun that they could walk around and see the whole town, and they loved the amount of activities we had for entertainment around the whole venue. Matt is also fantastic to work with! He is super responsive and knows so much about the industry that we felt like he was always there to help us along the way.
