Our daughter’s wedding was magical. The staff at Kindred Oaks is outstanding. From the moment we signed a contract to the actual wedding, every detail was looked over with precision. The grounds are gorgeous with numerous places to take wonderful pictures. I strongly recommend the package deal as it saved us money and allowed us to do things we might not afford otherwise. The day of our daughter’s wedding we feared it would rain and the staff was fully prepared for anything weather wise. We had a short rainfall but that allowed the photographer to take pictures with rain as well as the sun. I thought I would not hire a wedding planner but Donna Aleman came highly recommended and she was spectacular. Donna helped me decide where to spend my money and what to skip. She held monthly then weekly calls with us (we live on Galveston Island) to review the status of our tasks. She was patient beyond belief and worth four times her charge. I totally recommend Kindred Oaks to anyone seeking a romantic and beautiful setting. We spent four weekends touring all of Austin and surrounding area before we found Kindred.

We had my daughter’s wedding at Kindred Oaks after considering many many other venues and we were so happy to have made the right decision. The wedding was absolute perfection down to the very last detail. Elaine, Whitney and the entire team at Kindred Oaks could not have been more gracious, supportive and helpful in the planning and the final day. I cherish all of the memories from the walk to the altar, the ceremony with view of the lake and the lovely reception area with dinner and dancing. It was entirely an elegant and spectacular day. Elaine and her staff made us feel like family and worked so hard to make sure our day was special. Kindred Oaks is everything you would want from a Hill Country wedding and much much more.

There are not enough words for me to explain how much I loved working with Kindred Oaks. Booking Kindred Oaks for our wedding was one of the BEST decisions I could have ever made. The wedding packages with preferred vendors that they offer make the wedding planning process so simple, which was key for me as I was planning my wedding as a full time student in college while also working. Everyone there is incredibly friendly and professional and they are always willing to answer any questions you have in a timely manner. Besides all of that, there are so many small things that this venue and the staff have to offer that make it truly one-of-a-kind and so very special to get married at. You absolutely CANNOT go wrong with Kindred Oaks!

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,

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!

Thank you sooo much for being a part and helping create such a beautiful and fun day. We couldn’t be happier and are so fortunate to have such an amazing staff work with us.
