You may know us by our massive grand oak tree, but we also allow our clients to check out the entire oak grove to find their perfect spot.
This intimate spot, with the low hanging branch was perfect for the chandelier the couple wanted to hang. Closer to the water, but still in the shade.

One thing that is unique to both of our locations, is we have an ENTIRE suite for you and your girls to get ready. This makes for a more laid back environment on the biggest day of your life! I love how Jessica and her girls added personal touches to enhance the space. With so much room and so many different spots for photos, our Bridal Lodge really is ✨THE PERFECT ✨ place to get ready.

It's all in the details.
Infinite Focus Photography, LLC did a fantastic job getting some amazing detail shots of Kelly and Kade's personal items. Detail shots are super personal, and anything can be included. As a bride or groom, you want to pick things that are apart of your big day; rings, invitations, ceremony programs- things that capture beautifully well; shoes, jewelry, garter, perfume and cologne bottles - and any other extra details; ring boxes, letters, vow books, pictures of the bride and groom etc
We are loving this shots from Kelly Simcox and Kade Simcox wedding that Infinite Focus Photography, LLC snapped. They will be phenomenal in an album!

Good Morning and Happy Monday!
We may not be in our typical "full swing wedding mode" but we have been meeting with so many clients, working on their dream weddings and meeting a lot of parents. The behind the scene details to make weddings happen are a lot of work, but we enjoy every moment!
One thing that some of our clients have finally gotten to see on their return visits is the newest addition- the tongue and grove pine wall and barn doors we replaced the curtains with.
It is such a nice backdrop for your first dance, toasts/speeches and any other dancing you do inside. It provides a clean finish and matches the aesthetic of SFRR. Needless to say we love it!

We chose Santa Fe River Ranch as our venue for many reasons. One thing I looked for when choosing a venue was the "whole package".

There is something about portraits on our ranch property that is truly breathtaking.
There is no one perfect spot, we love them all. Oak trees with moss strewn limbs, ponds with tall grasses, or simply pasture.
Let your creativity flow and try to find your perfect spot during your engagement session or during your portrait time. We love each unique capture.
SGP Photography took these of Micaela and her husband Ross.

Our Story

At Santa Fe River Ranch we work hard to make your wedding stress free and truly the best day of your life. We are hands on throughout the entire process. Through tours of our facility prior to booking, engagement photos with your photographer after you have booked, wanting to show your family and bridal party the property and facility after booking, dropping off necessary items, and needing help the day of, we try to make ourselves available as much as possible. There will always be someone available throughout the entire day of the event. That way should anything arise, we are able to take care of it.

Being a working cattle ranch AND wedding and event venue gives us the opportunity to offer many unique experiences. Such as picture opportunities that other facilities and venues can not provide. Our sunsets are breathtaking as are our mossy oak groves. We have multiple locations for ceremony sites and have plans for inclement weather. Should you want to find out more information about our facility, or have questions if this is the right venue for you, please send us an email at [email protected]

We will be happy to provide you with what we offer as a venue, our pricing information and set you up with a tour of our facility.

This first look is EVERYTHING! Pieter started crying before he even laid eyes on his girl. All of the emotions of the day and the thought of seeing Lindsey and he was weeping. It was precious to watch his love for her throughout the day. A love he professed to her on their very first date...
