A Hill Country Venue

The hill country’s newest premier venue, Branded T Ranch, was built to provide brides with a one-of-a-kind experience. The ranch is comprised of an expansive 197 acres and there are multiple ceremony sites to make for a dream wedding. The 9,200 ft² Barn comfortably accommodates up to 220 guests and there are three (3) surrounding covered porches for additional seating. After the ceremony, guests can enjoy the view of the tranquil pond and the hand-forged fire pit. Our team is eager to meet with you to start planning your big day!

Facilities Overview

The Barn

The Branded T Ranch Barn is an English hay barn and was discovered in upstate New York. It was built circa 1870 and is one of the largest hay barns ever built in New York State. The Barn is 40 feet wide by 100 feet long.

In 2013, craftsmen carefully began dismantling the historic barn and shipped it to Texas where it has been cleaned, restored, and re-erected in its new beautiful Hill Country home of Kendalia. The Barn is made of Hemlock wood which once dominated the American forest but was decimated by loggers in the 1800s. The Barn was re-erected using the process in which it was originally built – an ancient method that uses only hand cut mortise and tenon joints to hold the framework together without metal fasteners.

The Barn’s second life will be as historic as its first as it hosts memorable, life-changing special events.

Bridal Bunkhouse

The Bride’s Bunkhouse is a lovely two bedroom, two full bath home. There is a comfortable living area and large kitchen where the Bride and her wedding party may congregate to prepare for the big day. Ladies may relax in the scenic backyard complete with fire pit and trellis.

The Bunkhouse is a short distance from the Barn and ceremony site allowing for the Bride to remain unseen until the special moment when all eyes are on her.

Groom’s Farmhouse

The Groom’s Farmhouse is the newest addition to Branded T Ranch. The Kendalia General Store and Post Office are just across the street giving the area an authentic 1950’s setting.

The Farmhouse is a rustic one bedroom, one bath home. There is a comfortable living area, full kitchen, and a gaming table on which a variety of games may be played. The Groom and his wedding party may gather in the backyard to relax and play horseshoes and washers. There is a large outdoor bar from which food and drinks may be served.

The Farmhouse is a short distance from the Barn and ceremony site allowing the Groom and his attendants to fully unwind and have fun before the big event.

The Covered Porches

The covered porches of the Branded T Ranch Barn provide ample space for guests to escape the activity of an event to relax and enjoy the Texas Hill Country. Complete with cypress furniture and ceiling fans, the porches offer comfort in which to take in the breathtaking scenic views.

The Ceremonial Lawn

The picturesque Ceremonial Lawn is anchored by two beautiful large oak trees covered in white lights overlooking the Branded T Ranch pond and wildlife. The footpath from the parking area is complemented by the rustic gift and sign in wagon and guests are welcomed to the Lawn by a homespun windmill. There is up lighting in the trees and a convenient walkway from the Barn to the Lawn for the wedding party processional. It may be used as is or decorated as you wish. Up to 500 guests may be seated comfortably on the Lawn for a ceremony.
