I can’t even begin to describe how happy I am with my decision to hold my wedding at Kindred Oaks. The venue is so incredibly beautiful and romantic. The staff is so sweet, responsive, and wonderful. I never waited more than a day for an answer to any of my questions and they constantly surprised me with how on top of everything they were. The girls are enthusiastic and excited for you at all times, and a calming presence when you need them. Heather and Elaine were my day of coordinators and everything ran flawlessly. I didn’t choose to use their all-inclusive package, but I did use several of their vendors (ZuZu’s Petals, D&C Entertainment, Hill Country Events). There is a huge benefit to using vendors that are so familiar with Kindred Oaks, it just makes the whole thing even more effortless. I loved having ZuZu’s Petals on-site-no delivery fee or returns or any of that, and they did an amazing job. I love how spacious and open Kindred Oaks is as well. I just can’t stop thinking about how perfect everything is at Kindred Oaks. The dressing rooms are gorgeous and the honeymoon suite is such an awesome way to end your night there. When we got to the suite it had a bottle of champagne chilling, cake and cupcakes from the wedding, and a few of our centerpiece flowers. There is not a single detail that Kindred Oaks has not thought of. They take care of the little stuff too-like hiring the police officer. I just can’t say enough positive things about the staff at Kindred Oaks, the beauty of the venue, or the perfect night we had. One more quick shout-out: the outdoor dance floor is gorgeous and really gives a nice flow to the ceremony (outside for dancing, under the pavilion for drinks and talking.

Last night really was the most amazing night of our lives. We had so much fun! To us, our wedding will always be a perfect memory and you all were a huge part of it. I can’t imagine a more awesome wedding team to have worked with leading up to the wedding or a more flawless team during the wedding. We feel so lucky to have had such a beautiful wedding. The honeymoon suite was the perfect finish to a perfect night. We loved our moment of quiet all alone on the dance floor when all the guests had gone.
Thank you for the most amazing memories.

Kindred Oaks Staff & Team,
We had the time of our lives at our wedding. Everything was perfect especially each real and raw imperfection; even those were special! Ya’ll helped make our amazing night with friends & family one well never forget. Our guests raved about the venue and all the memories they shared with us afterwards are set in the stone work and air of the property. The staff and vendors kicked so much butt! What a team they all are working with each other.
So glad we shared our night here with so many wonderful people – team and guests! We couldn’t have asked for a more splendid night.
All our love,

Perfect wedding, perfect venue (according to us and all of our guests), everyone helping last night was so helpful and sweet. I knew from the moment I stepped out of my car back in October 2016 to check out this venue that I’d love it, and this experience absolutely solidified that. Keep doin’ what you’re doing!

We had a wonderful time tonight. The weather was wetter than expected, and I was relieved when I saw Kindred Oaks already set up the ceremony chairs both outside AND inside. It made me feel at ease to know I had options and did not have to feel guilty choosing one way or another.
Even though it rained the whole evening, I received so many compliments about how beautiful the venue was and how PERFECT the night was!!
We loved it and would like a re-do!

We are completely in awe of our entire experience with the Kindred Oaks family. Every single time we interacted with anyone, Ed & I would turn towards each other and say “they’re so awesome! I’m so glad we chose this place!” Fast forward to the big day and it couldn’t have gone smoother. We were completely taken care of and so were our guests. The friendliness, calmness and positive energy was the best gift they gave us. We cannot speak more highly of our whole experience. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! For giving us such a magical and memorable wedding. We love you guys!

Kindred Oaks was the best! It was an honor to be the first wedding of the new year. We kicked it off right with a nerdy wedding including R2D2! We had an amazing time! Elaine and Steve took amazing care of us. We got married the day after a family tragedy and the bride was so worried. Ya’ll took care of everything and put our minds at ease! There was no detail too small that the staff hadn’t thought of. The bride was even pleasantly surprised to find a makeup wipe in the bathroom! Our guests had a great time. Everything was beautiful. Thank you so much to the entire staff.

It has taken me 2 months to try to find the words to describe my daughter’s fairytale wedding at Kindred Oaks. I still don’t have adequate words, but it’s past time to recognize these folks for their outstanding service and beautiful venue. My daughter chose Kindred Oaks for several reasons. Initially, the natural beauty of KO drew her in. Just a few minutes from major roads, the venue is situated on a lush, green property. You feel totally away from the city and get some great views. Landscaping is perfect in accenting the huge shade trees. Upon meeting with the staff, we felt so comfortable, almost as if we had known them for years! Elaine, Heather, and Whitney obviously have lots of experience with weddings because each time we spoke with them, they had great suggestions and answers for us. Steve was available to talk to us about how he sets up the site for events, and to go over their reassuring plan in case of bad weather. Throughout our year of planning, every contact we made with the office was answered immediately, or promptly responded to with a phone call or an email. I had a few mother of the bride panic moments and Elaine was so understanding and always made me feel better. Even though I know KO has lots of brides they work with, we felt as if we were the only clients. Every single detail was addressed and we are still getting compliments from our guests. Thank everybody ay KO for a perfect wedding with memories we will cherish forever!

These ladies are absolutely amazing at what they do. I found out about this venue online. I live in Hawaii so I knew planning a Texas wedding would be no easy feat – or at least that’s what I thought. After we chose Kindred Oaks as our venue, Elaine, Heather and Whitney simply made planning our wedding a breeze. They had a quick answer for every question I had and were able to assist me with every request. Their response time was always within 24 hours and that is hard to beat. I felt at ease knowing they would be by my side on our special day. We chose the package deal for the venue and it was the best decision. They handled so much for us regarding communicating with our vendors to make sure everything was set. They are the real deal and know their trade inside and out. Fast forward to the day of our wedding and my smile when I pulled up to the venue said it all. Breathtaking, beyond perfect, more than I could have ever wished for – those are the words I use to describe how I felt. The tables were set up exactly how we requested them down to every picture frame and piece of decor. Our wedding guests described the venue as rustic/gorgeous and that’s exactly what it is. The venue is already beautifully decorated with shining lights and hanging chandeliers which eliminates the need to go over the top with what you bring in. Elaine and Heather didn’t miss a beat at the wedding. They directed our wedding party during the ceremony and made sure everyone was where they needed to be, they helped me with my veil before I walked down the aisle, if anything needed to be taken care of these ladies were already handling it. I couldn’t even tell you if something went wrong that day because they surely fixed it before it could happen. They are wedding superheroes and I am so happy they were there to share our special day with us and simply made it PERFECT. If you are still questioning what venue to use, stop now. This is it. You will not be disappointed.

I can’t say enough wonderful things about Kindred Oaks! They truly made our day perfect. The staff is in contact with you from the moment you book until you say “I do,” and they are ready to answer any and all questions that you may have during the planning process. The day of coordinating from Elaine and the staff made our wedding day stress-free, and you couldn’t pick a prettier venue. Everyone was going on and on about how beautiful it was! You can tell that everyone working there loves what they do, and they try to make each couple’s wedding exactly how they envision it.

We had a March wedding at Kindred Oaks and couldn’t have asked for a better wedding venue. We planned the entire wedding from out of town after visiting the venue once when shopping around for a location. Elaine, Whitney, Morgan and Heather and their entire team were always in sync with the planning and made the planning so easy. Our guests loved the beautiful outdoor venue and continually said it was one of the best weddings they had been to. While the venue itself was breathtaking and didn’t need much added decor, we worked with their onsite florist ZuZu’s Petals for bouquets and centerpieces. They did an amazing job and I got tons of compliments on my bouquet. It was so nice to be able to enjoy the location when all of our guests left and the Kindred staff left us with cake, champagne and a to-go box of our wedding meal. Plus, they brought us a great breakfast in the morning. I worked almost entirely with vendors from their recommended list and we heard nothing but fantastic things about Kindred Oaks from everyone. Because the vendors were all familiar with venue and wanted to maintain their status as a preferred vendor, they worked seamlessly with Kindred Oaks. We couldn’t have asked for more. Kindred Oaks and their vendors truly made our wedding day the best day ever.
