About us

We would love to meet with you and talk about how we can make YOUR DREAM wedding happen!


Tequila Ranch

Tequila Ranch is a rustic wedding and event venue located in rural Taylor, Texas—just a 30 minute drive from Austin. It is the passion project of owners Joe and Stormy Krippelz, who painstakingly hand selected the reclaimed materials and spent countless hours creating the venue space, ceremony space and more. Tequila Ranch has a capacity of 100 seated guests, but can acommodate more if outdoor tents are utilized. We also have onsite lodging available, as well as event coordinating services.
