Start the party early!

Head out to Circle of Seven Ranch on the day before your wedding for your rehearsal and host your dinner here as well. You and yours can enjoy lounging in the Bridal Suite or throwing some darts and playing games in the Groom’s Hideout. You can also use this time to decorate, so you won’t be stressing on the big day. Then you and your bridal party can get a good night’s sleep in our guest house and be refreshed and ready for your special day.

“Vivian and David were attentive to what we wanted and made our dreams come true! They opened their property to us like it was our home away from home.”  - Reggie

The perfect outdoor ceremony

Include Mother Nature on the guest list with a meaningful ceremony while you say your vows under our gazebo overlooking our pond, fountain and longhorn pasture. And we always have a seamless and beautiful Plan B for you in case it rains.

Capture gorgeous sunset wedding photos

We recommend starting your ceremony about an hour or so before sunset. This will give you time for those daytime wedding party photos. And while your guests enjoy cocktails and the sunset, you’ll be capturing the “golden hour” with your photographer.

“This was not the first nor the last venue we visited. But we knew it was the perfect one.”  - Ashtain

  • Why is your venue called Circle of Seven Ranch?
    My husband, our five children and I went to Bastrop to select our first longhorns from a well-known breeder. It was later when we were trying to come up with our ranch name that we realized that we (the 7 of us) picked out a herd of 7 longhorns. Circle of Seven just clicked!
  • How long have you been opened?
    Our first wedding was April 2, 2021, and in April 2024, we will hit our 100th wedding!
  • What is your venue's capacity?
    We have tables and chairs for 200 guests though our venue space is rated for 330 people. This gives you plenty of room for everyone to be comfortable even at our max of 200 guests.
  • How big is your parking lot?
    We have over an acre sized parking lot behind our venue!
  • Do you have a get ready room for the bride?
    Yes! We have a bridal suite inside our venue that has a full kitchen, bathroom and sitting room!
  • Do you have a place for the guys to go?
    Yes! We have a "Groom's Hideout" where the boys can play darts, cornhole, foosball, air hockey, basketball, etc. And when they have to get dressed, we have a climate-controlled room with a full bathroom & tv!
  • Is your venue climate controlled?
    Yes! We have ac & heat in our venue, bridal suite & groom's hideout!
  • Do you have a place where we can stay?
    Yes! We have an on-site guest house that sleeps up to 7 people! It is a two bedroom and one bath with two queen beds, a sleeper sofa and a trundle twin bed. It has a fully stocked kitchen too!
  • I have more people that need a place to stay after the wedding, what do you have nearby?
    We have had several weddings where almost everyone came in from out-of-town! Even though we have hotels in all directions about 25 minutes away, we suggest using the AirBnb’s located in Wallis and/or Rosenberg/ Richmond. Some can accommodate large families up to 12 to 16 guests!
  • I do not know where to start in my wedding planning! Can you help me?
    Yes! When you sign a contract with us, we provide you a "Welcome Packet" that includes a helpful checklist, a recommended table layout, our preferred vendors list and accommodations around the ranch!
  • Wait! Do I have to use your vendors?
    No. Our Preferred Vendors list is a great place for you to start but we do not require that you use our vendors. Over the course of three years, we have seen some good vendors and some that were not so good, so we compiled our preferred vendors list from our favorites to share with you. We also ask our vendors to offer discounts to our customers!
  • What if my photographer is my friend? Or my "caterer" is my uncle?
    Not a problem. We know how much your family and friends want to help in your wedding! So, if you have a family member or a friend that is "working" on your behalf, we consider them a "Host Provided" service.
  • So, I really want an outside wedding. What happens if there's bad weather on my wedding day?
    We will work with you until that last minute to decide if the ceremony will be outside or inside. Our most popular venue layout allows for a ceremony space inside our venue if there's bad weather. You make the call!
  • I have a specific date in mind, but I do not know my guest count yet! What do I do?
    To reserve your date, we need the Reservation Payment and a signed contract. We realize that your number of guests at this point is really a best guess. We typically contract for a safe headcount of 80% of your estimated guest list and give you the ability to increase your headcount no later than 30 days before your event. This way you don’t have to commit to a specific number of guests until after you get your rsvp’s back and it keeps you from overpaying.
  • Is my reservation payment refundable?
    No, the Reservation Payment is not a deposit and is not refundable. It is the payment due for us to lock in and hold your date just for you.
  • How much time do I have on the day of?
    We allow an arrival time as early as 9 am so that you have plenty of time for decorating and wedding preparation. Then, we allow 1/2 hour for your ceremony and 4 hours for your reception and 1 hour for venue cleaning/ decoration removal.
  • 4-1/2 hours for my wedding & reception? Is that enough time?
    90% of our weddings choose to stay within the industry standard 4-1/2 hours timeframe. If you would like to add more time, you can add up to 2 extra hours. Please check our "Packages" tab for the rate. We do ask that your reception ends at midnight.
  • Why do you ask for an event to end at midnight?
    We often have either weddings or tours the next day so we need the time for us to deep clean our venue each night after an event and move in/out tables and chairs to get set for our next event before we head to bed. We learned from our first wedding that this works best for us to keep the venue clean..
  • What are we responsible for cleaning up?
    After your reception, we ask that you pick up or throw away what you or your guests brought in. So, all visible trash needs to go into the trash cans and all decorating items or anything else you brought in needs to be removed from the venue. We need everything out as we start our deep clean as soon as you are done.
  • What about the guest house? When is check-in and check-out?
    Guest house check-in time is 3 pm and check-out time is 11 am the next morning. If you want to have an earlier access, we will let you know if that is available. If you need a late check out, please check with us first! That will depend on if we have a wedding or tours the next day.
  • Do you allow summer weddings?
    It's safe to say it will always be hot outside in Houston for July & August. To help we do have a high-pressure misting system for our two patios as well as an air curtain for the interior of the main double doors. The venue is well insulated and air-conditioned as well. We also offer a reduced Base Venue Rate for July and August!
  • Who provides your catering?
    We are partnered with Ben's Chuck Wagon who we consider to be an amazing caterer that has been in the business for almost 25 years. He is a local favorite in our area and provides a vast menu with generous portions at reasonable prices. You will not leave hungry!
  • Can we take our bridals/ engagement pictures at the ranch?
    Yes! We allow for a one-time complimentary access to our venue and/or our grounds for pictures. We ask that these are scheduled on a weekday to not conflict with our weekend weddings.
  • What time do you recommend for our ceremony?
    We strongly suggest starting your ceremony 1-1/2 hours before sunset. In this way, you will have time for your ceremony and for your daytime pictures with your wedding party and your guests. Our venue has a distinct look in the daytime and a completely different look at night with our up-lights in our trees and in the fountain and with the twinkle lights inside the venue. So, by having your ceremony before sunset, you and your guests get to enjoy our venue in the daytime and at night! It's the best of both worlds!
  • So, what does a typical wedding look like at your venue?
    Typically, our bride & grooms & their wedding party take photos at the gazebo and in the garden area right after the ceremony. This first hour is also considered the cocktail hour for your guests for them to enjoy appetizers and drinks while they wait. Thereafter, the wedding party do their grand entrance, their first dances, their speeches and then start dinner. After the bride & groom eat, they go outside to take intimate photos at sunset along our tree-lined drive, on our dock and around our pond. Upon their return, is cake cutting and then the lights dim, and the party starts!
  • On the day of, what time can we come in to decorate?
    You can come in as early as 9am to start your day! We hope by having our venue decorated with string lights and accent pieces, you will find adding your personal touch can be as easy as you want it to be! And you will not have to worry about non-related tours interrupting your get-ready time. When you rent our venue, our space will be yours for the entire day!
  • Do you have a sound system and Wifi?
    Yes! We have had multiple weddings where music was provided by a friend or family. For your use, we have two portable Bose S1 Pro speakers that can be blue-toothed to a phone or laptop along with a microphone system. We also can provide a Wifi router.
  • Do you really have longhorns?
    Yes! We raise purebred registered Texas longhorns. We usually have a young herd in the front and our main herd in our back pastures and they can be viewed from our venue! You can also check them out on our longhorn website!
  • What about the bar?
    We required the use of TABC certified bartender(s) for all events. You are free to use the bartenders on our Preferred Vendors List or provide your own. The bartenders on our list provide the garnishes, cocktail napkins and straws. You will provide the alcohol, mixers, ice and cups. We allow for beer, wine and mixed drinks. We ask for no glassware for drinking. The pricing of the bartenders on our list also includes the tip(s) for the bartender(s).
  • Do you allow fireworks?
    No, we do not allow fireworks, but we do allow sparklers! We also have two large clay pots on the main patio that are perfect for disposing of the sparklers after your grand exit.
  • Are pets allowed?
    Yes! We are pet friendly and have seen some pups be a part of the wedding party!

Once the party’s over

Spend your wedding night at the guest house and before you leave the next morning, take a walk and visit the Longhorns. It’s all part of your Circle of Seven Ranch wedding weekend.

“We even got a tour of the ranch the next morning, feeding the longhorns and everything!” - Elisa

No hidden charges

Planning a wedding can be pretty stressful, so we believe transparent pricing is the way to go. Our venue pricing is based on the number of guests, along with day and time of year.

“You won’t find another venue for the price that looks this elegant. It came with the bartender, caterer, and all of the linens. We got a lot of compliments on everything.” - Savannah

Answers to popular wedding reception questions

Whether you’re here for the day or the weekend, we want you to understand all aspects of planning a wedding reception with Circle of Seven Ranch. Here are three questions - and our answers - to help you decide on the right Houston area wedding venue.

What are 3 key things to look for in a wedding venue? Besides capacity and budget considerations, look for a venue with a beautiful outdoor ceremony space - and a Plan B that looks just as good. Work with a venue manager who offers collaboration and creativity. Most importantly, can you see yourself having the time of your life there?

Do you pick a wedding date or venue first? If you have your heart set on a particular venue, find out what’s available and choose a date that suits the time of year you envisioned. If the date has important significance, match the venue - and start looking as early as possible.

What is the best time of year for a wedding in Texas? With cooler temperatures, most couples find spring and fall the ideal times for a Texas wedding. These seasons also provide beautiful backdrops for outdoor wedding ceremonies and stunning “golden hour” photos.
