Driftwood Venue

Upon entering the gates of The Ranch at San Patricio, taking an immediate left will bring you to Driftwood. The Driftwood Venue at The Ranch at San Patricio boasts beautiful views and wonderful, South Texas flair. The outside of the main venue has many textures that make it a great backdrop for engagement, bridal, wedding or quinceanera photography. The front of Driftwood is built with a white rock for which many Texas homes and buildings are known. The backside of the Driftwood has a rustic, tin veneer that incorporates an elegant, ranch touch to your wedding or event. It also serves as a beautiful backdrop to the Driftwood outdoor chapel.

 

Once you enter the large Driftwood venue, you will be met with cathedral ceilings and solid wood beams from which crystal chandeliers glow adding an old world, classic feel to the venue. Along the side of the large Driftwood building is a covered porch where family and guests can enjoy the outdoors and fresh air, or enjoy hors d’oeuvres or cocktails after your ceremony, or before your meal is served if you choose. Driftwood also contains an indoor, overlooking balcony, perfect for photos, toasts, or other presentations. Driftwood seats 200 people, and comes with 60 inch round tables and 200 brown chivari chairs with damask cushions.

Outdoor Chapel at Driftwood

Just outside the Driftwood venue is a quaint, outdoor chapel for a breathtaking outdoor ceremony with views of open Texas landscape and large oaks in the background. A series of stark white wooden pews and chairs are available for guest seating.

 

The outdoor chapel is the perfect location for your ceremony or vow exchange. After the wedding ceremony, step into the Driftwood venue for an elegant reception.

Driftwood Building

Many brides choose to hold their wedding in the Driftwood outdoor chapel and move the reception indoors. If there happens to be inclement weather, the indoor Driftwood is a great fall back option. You may not get to have your outdoor wedding because of rain or other weather, but the Driftwood building is the next best option.

 

Upon entering the large Driftwood venue, you will be met with cathedral ceilings and solid wood beams from which decorative lamps and cloth streamers can be hung. The multiple, rustic hanging chandeliers add an old world, classic feel to the venue. Along the side of the large Driftwood building is a small, covered porch where family and guests can enjoy the outdoors and fresh air. Driftwood also contains an indoor, overlooking balcony, perfect for photos, toasts, or other presentations.

Photo Ops

Next to the venue is a large, open field that is edged by Texas oaks with large, rustic flower pots swinging in trees overflowing with greenery, a rustic rope swing for couples to enjoy next to the rustic, round hay bales and the vintage, red wagon. Many couples choose to have their photography done in the adjacent opening next to our vintage 1946 Dodge Coupe Custom Deluxe, making for a one-of-a-kind photo op! Add a special touch to your photos by renting our vintage couches to complement the Texas backdrop.
