King River Ranch


An unparalleled riverfront ranch venue on the famous 290 Wine Trail just outside Fredericksburg, we offer awe-inspiring indoor/outdoor event spaces, luxurious amenities, 3,000 square feet of expertly designed day-of accommodations for your wedding party, and picturesque Hill Country backdrops, all surrounded by abundant world-class accommodations, wineries, attractions, dining and shopping.

This unique venue was created by the design experience behind some of the world’s most prominent wedding and events, exclusively for Hill Country weddings. Just one hour from both the State Capitol in Austin and the Alamo in San Antonio, King River Ranch is perfectly situated in the center of the highest concentration of wineries outside the Napa Valley.

Our King Barn can accommodate up to 250 guests for seated dining with enough room for a dance floor, bar and stage, and sits between an expansive horse pasture and an idyllic fishing pond straight out of a Mark Twain novel, fireflies and all. The River Terrace is a stone-paved open-air space built into the dramatic rocky riverbanks of our ¼-mile private section of the iconic Pedernales River, which flows majestically in the background.

In-house floral and event design is provided by Willem-Aidan, a globally acclaimed design studio whose client list includes Audi, Cadillac and the Screen Actor's Guild Awards.

Venue fees include complimentary tables and chairs, site manager/concierge, engineering staff, complimentary parking and parking assistance, a gorgeous dressing salon, hair and makeup studio, and easy guest and vendor access.
