Red Ridge Wedding Venue

I've been touring some of the local wedding venues in the past few months. Since Austin and I live out towards Bastrop, we thought it would be great to do weddings in our own "backyard". We even have a hashtag for it: #elopeinbastrop

Why not keep some of that wedding money local?

I reached out to Bethany at Red Ridge and set up a time to go out and visit. Thankfully it was early in the day and not sweltering because when I showed up, this tiny woman with the cutest baby bump welcomed me at the door! She looked like she was ready to pop! She and her husband, Chris, own and operate the venue. by "operate" I mean ... HANDS ON! Chris is resident DJ, Photo Booth operator, and tremendous carpenter! All the decking was done by him! It was beautiful.

Bethany showed me around inside the venue and I happily snapped photos. They can comfortably accommodate 150 guests. Here are the things that are included in the price:

  • One Hour Rehearsal: can be scheduled 30 days prior to your wedding (based on availability).
