Our wedding was outside on November 23rd, 2013. Though it was cold, it was PERFECT! I told Kevin and Sophie in advance that if it rained, I wanted to get married in the rain, and luckily it let up right as the service was starting. Our wedding was delayed an hour due to my hair stylist arriving an hour and a half late to do my hair, but when we got there, everything had been taken care of and went very smooth. Kevin was great the entire reception, and our entire family LOVED the staff! Sophie made sure that my husband and I had drinks all night, and always checked with me before just announcing something. They made our day perfect! I will recommend people to use them for events for YEARS to come. What an amazing experience! Thank you guys so much for everything!

Seriously I can't even start to say enough good things about La Tranquila Ranch! I got married on a Sunday in November, and was cursed with horrible weather. I honestly was a little crushed. I had "dreamed" of having my wedding outside at the venue, but that wasn't an option anymore. The venue had told me they would have to do a "flip" using the reception hall for both the ceremony and reception. This was something I had been DREADING and the La Tranquila staff knew it. Working together we came up with a different plan. They let me use the other venue on the property for FREE for the Ceremony and WOW did they out do themselves!! It was PERFECT!! It was better then what I had pictured!! Throughout the entire day, the La Tranquila staff was there to help me with my every need, even when it involved a problem with a DIFFERENT vendor! The staff, setting, price, and personality of La Tranquila Ranch, really makes it the perfect spot to get married!

Everything was done beautifully and they did just about everything I requested! Ana was very helpful and a great day-of coordinator! Price was reasonable compared to so many other venues in Houston.

La Tranquila Ranch is where my reception took place. I used the ballroom and it was absolutely beautiful. Anel and Kevin are just so sweet. I asked to come by the day before my wedding to set up and they were completely okay with it. Kevin hung around and helped out a little and they were both so accommodating. The property was very clean and manicured. We used their caterer for the food and it was FANTASTIC. We had so many compliments on the food and the venue itself. Anel and Kevin were ALWAYS there when I had a question or if I was unsure about something. My phone calls were always returned very quickly if I left a message. I can't say enough great things about these two and La Tranquila Ranch. They allowed me to come to the ranch on several occasions to compare different colored linens on the tables because I was having a touch time deciding. These two are just great! Thank you SO MUCH.

The venue is so beautiful!! We got married on Nov. 3rd 2012. There we're several huge mistakes made that really kind of ruined my vision of the night and I really feel as if my parents should've got some of their money back.
1. I had table signs made to reserve the table for our bridal party and ourselves- 2 signs for the table as it was large- Well instead of following the sketch she had made while in one of our meetings Sandra had not only our tabe reserved but she put a sign on the table next to us as reserved so there was an entire empty table by us. People were standing because they had nowhere to sit until we arrived after pictures and i took the sign off..
2. Sandra- Had the DJ announce the champagne toast and we start looking around and literally not one person had any.. He had to announce that we'd be cutting the cake first in order to give their bartenders time to actually pour it and pass it out. She literally stood around all night in the corner doing nothing. So disorganized.
3. I decided to go with the provided floating candle centerpieces to save some money. They were described to me as 3 vases of different heights filled with river rocks and a floating candle on top. Well we walk in to our wedding reception and they are just empty vases- no rocks in the bottom. They looked awful and unfinished.
4. I bought custom dinner napkins from The Knot (which I was soo excited about! They came out perfect!) They are nowhere to be found! They had them in a pile on a table rather than at each place setting.
5. Cold dinner.
So overall if you want a stress free venue DON'T USE THEM.
- Best of luck to all you brides to be

I had to have my ceremony by a romantic tree and LaTranquila had the best place and for a very reasonable price. Sandra will work with you on every aspect to make sure everything goes as planned.
They have 2 venues so you can choose the best place for your size. I had 60 people and the villa was perfect. I could not have asked for a better place or better price.
The only thing I would have done differently was bring in outside food. Although nobody talks about it, I didn't care for the food. Everything else was great!
I even lost my earring and left one of my guests gifts and they called me to return the items. Fantastic!

We had an intimate reception at the Villa with pecan crusted chicken, garlic mashed potatoes, salad, and they even included hors d'oeuvres for our guests before we arrived. We loved the setting, the decor, the lights; they even let us drop off things we wanted on the tables and they set them up for us!

This reception hall was close by the church and I received alot of compliments how people thought it was so beautiful. I'm glad I made this choice Sandra the wedding coordinator did such a great job helping me on the day of the wedding.

My husband and I used La Tranquila as our venue, we used the Villa and could not be more happy about our choice. The service and food were incredible! Sandra met with us, called us, and was available to us constantly before and during the wedding. When our cake was delivered to the wrong place, she personally used her personal vehicle to transfer it to the Villa! The Villa was beautiful and the staff were amazing! All of our guests loved the venue snd thought that the Villa was the perfect place for our wedding! If we had to do it again, we would pick La Tranquila Ranch again. I will constantly recommend LTR and Sandra to all of my engaged friends!

LTR is a gorgeous facility - rustic with tasteful touches of Texas. The staff was very attentive, and their presence was not overstated. Sandra, the facility coordinator went above and beyond her duties-- I forgot my garter, and would have gone without, but she sent a staff member out to pick one up locally without being asked, and had it discreetly placed in an armoire for me to slip on at my leisure.

Everyone was so nice and helpful with every step. They were so great on thethe wedding day to make everything perfect so we didn't need to stress! Thanks Sandra and Deb!

I had a wonderful experience working with La Tranquila Ranch to haev my big day be special. Sandra was always available easily by email to answer all my questions- no matter how big or small they were. She really took the time to make us feel comfortable with choosing La Tranquila Ranch for our wedding. We got married in the Villa and I love the functional atmosphere it provides. The only negative pointed out to me by some of my guests and family is that the carpet is in need of some updating. That was the only negative comment I heard- the rest of the feedback from our family and guests was phenomenal. Had a great time and would highly recommend to anybody.

Perfect venue for a perfect wedding. Initially I was skeptic about the price but after visiting over 15 different venues this was still my favorite and it was worth every penny. The ballroom is gorgeous and the exterior landscape makes it the perfect setting for a wedding.The staff was extremely helpful during the wedding planning process and even more accomodating the day of. Very pleased!

We had our wedding at the Villa & it was a fantastic experience! We had a lot of fun and the staff was very helpful throughout the planning process. The only problems were the bathrooms were in need of repair & there was a massive leak & there was brown water in the lower areas.
Other than that, i'd reccomend this place to anyone looking for a comfy, family-oriented space.

I had my wedding and reception at the Villa at La Tranquila Ranch on 3/11/2012, and it was so beautiful! Even though it rained the whole week, and originally our ceremony was supposed to be outside, Sandra made sure that everything was perfect. The centerpieces were so beautiful, and the windows made it even more romantic when the sun went down. Loved it!

This was a nice venue; however, there were a few things I would have liked to see different with this vendor. If you didn't use their one caterer, you were pretty much on your own with not only the food, but plates, silverware, glasses, and other things you would not imagine. Once I got over that hump, my caterer comes to realize that there is no functional kitchen, which was very inconvienent for cooking and serving a fresh meal. The place cost too much for all of these hassles. This venue has a beautiful location and the staff is nice, but there were a lot of issues to address during a stressful time.
We are sorry that you feel this way. You were given this information during your tour, prior to booking your date and signing your contract. This information is also on the information sheet that you filled out. We do allow outside catering and it i...

Sandra is the best!!! Our wedding was perfect! I was able to really enjoy the night and I trusted Sandra and her staff completely to take care of everything. She was very patient with us and was so great at communicating with my parents and my husband's parents. It was the best night of my life, and a huge part of that was because of Sandra. I feel like we are friends now! I would reccommend using La Tranquila to my friends for sure!

I am so happy we chose to have our wedding at La Tranquila, it was everything I wanted our wedding to be... and so much more. Sandra, the event coordinator, was very helpful throughout the process. She was very thorough in addressing all my questions and concerns, and also made great suggestions to assist in my planning.The gazebo where we had the ceremony was picturesque. It is not the traditional "aisle" that most brides imagine, which was a concern of mine but Sandra assured me that it works well... and I couldn't agree more! It is a modern version of walking down the aisle, and very magical over the water being surrounded by friends and family.We were also lucky enough to have a photograph with the horses in the background! The ballroom was so romantic and elegant! Some of my guests mentioned that they enjoyed strolling around the ranch because it was so beautiful. The night went very smooth. All of our guests had great feedback on the food. The staff was very helpful from the bar, to the servers, and of course Sandra! Thank you La Tranquila!
