La Bonne Vie Ranch Wedding Pavilion
Rustic vernacular, yet formal, comfortable, and memorable. These qualities describe the perfect wedding venue for Texas Hill Country. Located in Fredericksburg, La Bonne Vie Ranch Wedding Pavilion is a new venue on a private ranch offering wedding and event services on a serene backdrop of native terrain.
La Bonne Vie Ranch Wedding Pavilion provides all the amenities to host the perfect wedding, with ample charm and character on top. As guests follow a scenic landscaped path, they enter through a vintage reclaimed-timber porch into the entry receiving room, also built from vintage reclaimed-timbers. Upon the opening of double sliding barn doors, the space opens up to the main reception hall. The venue also includes private groom and bridal rooms, a catering kitchen, and a bar. Perhaps the most memorable features are the loft above the entry accessible via spiral stair, as well as the front balcony off of the adjacent bridal loft, all of which provide optimum photo opportunities.
The elegance of this venue is embodied in the design of the timber bow-string truss that spans the 30 foot center aisle of the reception hall. Traditional detailing and delicate curves bring a lightness to the heavy-timber structure. Indeed, the rustic qualities of the vintage reclaimed materials are balanced with smooth, white finishes elsewhere, and the whole building is illuminated with tasteful and creative lighting design, inside and out.
