Testimonials: Staley Mountain Ranch Barn Weddings
Posted on Wedding Wire
We found Staley mountain ranch online after looking at many different venues in the Houston area. The minute we arrived on the property we knew we had found something special! After Edith gave us a tour of the venue we booked our date immediately! Staley mountain ranch was going to be the perfect place for our wedding.
During the planning process, Edith was nothing but helpful. She helped us with rentals, allowed us to meet with vendors on site that were unfamiliar with the facility, assisted us with vendors and helped us plan the correct locations for particular decorations.
The wedding could not have been more perfect. Many of the guests kept asking how we found this place and how breathtaking it was. The bridesmaids and bride got ready in the beautiful house. There was plenty of room for the five girls, the bride, the mothers, and hair and makeup staff to move around. The pictures from the inside were gorgeous and the outside deck is unreal with the view to Lake Livingston. The groomsmen got ready at the reception barn, where they were able to hang out and relax. Again, there was plenty of room for the six groomsmen plus the five ushers.
We got married under the small arbor on the lawn. We used the large arbor for the lemonade stand and the photo booth. The large arbor allowed our guests to mingle and have a few drinks before the reception. The reception was in the barn that comfortably fit over 130 people with a large dance floor, catering tables, dj and bar. The barn is the perfect setting for a rustic wedding with the wood paneled walls, dimly lit chandeliers and wood trusses.
We have nothing but great things to say about Staley Mountain Ranch. We could not have picked a better place and it was truly a blessing. Thank you so much for letting us have our special day here!

We recently had our wedding at Staley Mountain Ranch. I knew as soon as we pulled up on our first visit this was THE place. Edith was awesome to work with, very responsive to emails. Our wedding was just as beautiful as I imagined. My only recommendations would be if you are doing a lot of DIY to make sure you allow yourself enough time to decorate and to tear down. We were riding the shuttle with our guest so Edith did allow us to come back the next morning to pick up our decorations that we had to leave after the wedding. The other thing, if you are DIY'ing your drinks make sure you figure out how much you need. We had way too much liquor, soda and beer but not enough ice. Edith also has several items available for rentals that make it nice to have there already, such as dishes, table linens... She will also be your DOC for an addional charge. We did hire her for this service. She did a very good job making sure everyone was where they needed to be and that we kept on schedule with things, as well as work with the vendors when they arrived.

My Husband and I were married on May 31, 2014 at the beautiful Staley Mountain Ranch! Who would have thought you could find a "mountain" in east Texas. It was the most perfect day I could have asked for. Edith was so helpful in all the planning and had so many items that were available to use. Edith was the wedding coordinator the day of the wedding and made it so easy for me to relax because she was taking care of all of the details for me. She is such a wonderful person and such a hard worker to the success of each wedding. I definitely recommend Staley Mountain Ranch for venues or parties and especially recommend Edith and all of her creative ideas. :)

My Husband and I had our wedding on December 28, 2013. Edith and Blake made everything so prefect & beautiful. The view was unbelievable and the venue was great. She knew what to do at the right time. I definitely recommend having it there at Staley Mountain Ranch!
My Husband and I were married in July 2013 with the joy of having Edith as our planner/coordinator. She came in and blew our ideas out of the water with her creativity! She helped us come up with totally unique decor for the church and reception. She also made two large flower arrangements for us that framed our ceremony and were displayed at our reception. At the rehearsal, she was able to instruct my 18-person wedding party as to how the ceremony would go, and where they were to be positioned. The day of the wedding, she took charge of all the vendors and made sure that I didn't have to worry about one thing. She planned the wedding with such care and detail as if it were her own. When I entered the reception space, I was so amazed at the work that went on behind the scenes that had somehow transformed into my dream wedding! I don't know what I would have done without her that day. I would recommend her 100 times out of 100!
