We absolutely loved our experience at Lotus Ranch! This venue has so many perks: Big, beautiful property, on site lodging for a big group, full service kitchen, and the wonderful event coordinator just to name a few. Our day was so special. I wouldn’t have wanted to celebrate our big day anywhere else! Thank you Lotus Ranch!!

The Lotus Ranch is a wonderful place to get married! The grounds are beautiful and the ranch itself is very nice and can fit about 130-150 people inside. The adjacent house sleeps up to 25 for a very reasonable $45/night/person. Our out of town guests were able to stay there and make their own arrangements with the ranch management. You also get the place for the entire weekend so everyone can hang out and have a great time. I also can’t say enough good things about Kayleigh! She runs the place and acted as our day-of coordinator. She is amazing, organized, and incredibly helpful! Our wedding went off without a hitch and mainly due to Kayleigh. This place is very reasonably priced and provides a perfect setting for a hill country wedding!

From day one when we met with Kayleigh we felt very comfortable working with her. She was responsive to all of our initial questions, thoroughly explained everything Lotus Ranch had to offer, what we could expect in planning our wedding there and what our experience would be like when the actual day arrived.  When we got to our wedding weekend, Kayleigh was amazing. She was there assisting with all aspects of the preparation and ensured that we had everything that we needed to feel ready to go. She went above our expectations in regards to her assistance in our preparation which went a long way in easing our anxiety prior to the ceremony.  On the day of the wedding, Kayleigh handled the craziness with ease. We had one minor problem with a vendor running late and it was basically taken care of before we even really knew about it or had time to worry that something was going wrong. Once all the festivities were under way, she did an OUTSTANDING job of taking care of our every need, ensuring our family and guests had what they needed, and made sure that things ran like clockwork.  The venue itself was everything we were looking for. We were able to experience a weekend celebration with our family, our wedding party, and some close friends. We felt the experience at Lotus Ranch enhanced our whole wedding with everyone staying together and really having the time to spend with one another instead of just going through the typical wedding weekend events with people going their separate ways through much of the process. It is a beautiful setting for the ceremony, an incredibly peaceful, quiet and relaxing retreat and the way the ranch lights up at night just makes for a beautiful celebration.  We cannot express enough how grateful we are to have found Lotus Ranch and Kayleigh and will look back on our wedding experience for years to come with such fond memories and cannot ignore the fact that the venue we chose had a huge part in contributing to those thoughts!

Lotus Ranch is a beautiful and affordable venue that made my husband’s and my wedding dress dreams come true. The venue offers a spacious lodge with many rooms and full kitchen for guests, it is adjacent to a beautifully decorated hall, also they have a cozy bridal suite that is tucked away and perfect for any wedding ceremony. The staff was tremendously attentive and helpful to our needs and helped to create our perfect day. Mike Turner, owner and founder of Lotus Ranch, served as our officiant for the day of our wedding and provided a service fit for our needs. He exhibited a thoughtful demeanor and superior professionalism throughout our stay at the ranch. Kayleigh Ziegenbein, director and coordinator, was a tremendous help from the time we booked our venue to the day our wedding occurred. She served as our day- of- coordinator and was a great help, along with her staff, offering ideas for decor and aiding to set the stage for a perfect day. Both Mike Turner and Kayleigh Ziegenbein are wonderful people who have given my husband and I the wedding we wanted and we could not have been happier. It was indeed a perfect day and we both would love to do business with them again soon.

The entire staff was amazing. Kayleigh and Mike are so friendly and helpful. At the last minute my photographer ended up not working out, but before I could go into panic-mode, Kayleigh stepped up and helped out by taking photos while Mike got a photographer for us at the last minute. I have not one negative comment for this venue. It is beautiful and affordable.

If anybody is considering Lotus Ranch as their wedding location, I promise it is the right choice. Not only was it beautiful and everythinng I’ve dreamed of but Kayleigh & Mike are extremely easy to work with. I recieved most of my vendors from them and was pleased with all of their recommendations. If there was ever a stressful moment for me as the bride she took care of it & made it seem so simple. Never did I feel pressure and everything went according to how I wanted it. Being able to have our friends stay at the ranch for the weekend was the best experience & truly worth every penny to have that time with everyone. I highly recommend this location. Thank you so much for all of your help and for providing the perfect place for a perfect wedding!!

Lotus Ranch is the best place in the Hill Country to have a wedding ceremony!!  The facility is capable of handling your entire wedding. A BEAUTIFUL ceremony site and a fantastic area for your reception. The entire staff at Lotus Ranch are so helpful and accommodating I highly recommend checking them out when searching for venues. This ranch is nestled in the heart of the Texas Hill Country just a few miles outside of Wimberly. The young lady that manages the ranch is so awesome, caring and ready to help at any moment. The Bridal Suite is Beautiful and roomy. The ranch house has several rental rooms for family and friends. The prices are also very reasonable.  Check out their photo gallery at lotusranch.org.  You won’t regret giving they a visit!! 10-03-2011  Thank You for making our Son & Daughter-n-law’s wedding so BEAUTIFUL

Mike and Kayleigh were a life saver! We did a large 170 person wedding that was planned and executed by myself, family and friends. They were more than accomadating to my difficult and rambuctious family. I had no real planner but Kayleigh stepped up and led us through the whole night.  The wedding was at the end of April, so very hot. We had the whole place to ourselves all weekend and all I wanted to do was swim even though the slow river did not permit it. Mike had his guys get bags of ice to cool down the hot tub enough to comfortably relax in. Now that’s catering to a bride!  Love this place!
