My husband and I could not have picked a more perfect venue for our wedding. The staff is incredible and very responsive to all your questions. The day of the wedding ran so smoothly due to our day of coordinators (Rachel and Gaby). The in-house DJ (DJ Brian) was AMAZING as well as the in-house florists (Wild Bunches)! We just can't say enough good things about this place. My family also loved the convenience of the on-site rooms. These were great for our immediate family to stay in! The venue has a beautiful hill country vibe as well. If you choose Memory Lane you will not regret it!

I cannot speak highly enough about Memory Lane Event Center, their coordinators and Wild Bunches Floral. The day turned out so amazing... so much more wonderful than I could have ever imagined!! This was due in large part to the coordinators at Memory Lane, their attention to detail and desire to make your day come out beautiful and just as you envisioned. From the moment we stepped on the property a year and a half ago to visit and view the venue for the first time, we knew Memory Lane was where we wanted to get married. We loved the ceremony and reception site, we loved the warmth and friendliness of Thalia and her team and most of all we loved that the venue came with a 22 hour rental and with sleeping accommodations for our family members. We are family oriented and loved this about Memory Lane! We rented the venue from Friday to Sunday so we could have the rehearsal dinner and a central place where our family could spend time with one another throughout the weekend and this was wonderful!!! I highly recommend this!! After a year and a half of wedding planning and countless emails, phone calls and meetings with Thalia and her staff ( who were always so helpful, patient and wonderful) the day arrived and it could not have been any more perfect. There were 3 coordinators working on the day of the wedding and Steven and I agree that the day flowed so smoothly because of the coordinators, and how they really worked with us both before the wedding but also the day of to ensure that everything flowed just as we had planned and hoped for. Memory Lane... thank you so so much for all you did to help make the day for us such a success. Rachel, Gaby, Uleda and Thalia each of you are so amazing and I am beyond thankful for how helpful you each have been throughout the wedding planning and the day of the wedding. Writing this review is actually bringing me to tears as i think about how flawless the wedding was and how thankful I am for the ladies at Memory Lane who were so wonderful and helped make the day as perfect as it was. Thank you!! Memory Lane is such a beautiful venue and is run by a team who love their job and help you feel so loved.

I really can’t describe how perfect everything turned out for our wedding. We went randomly to an open house at ML after being in Austin for a birthday weekend. This was the first place we looked at. I thought the area was just breath taking. Gabby talked to us the first day and we told them we were still looking but after a few weeks we knew that ML was the venue for us. The property is beautiful and the fact that you get the venue for 22 hours is a HUGE bonus. The extra time and sleeping space was really important to me when choosing this venue. I loved being able to have our wedding party stay on sight after the wedding with us to continue celebrating. Gabby was amazing. She worked with me through the months with any questions I had or forgetting anything important. I wasn’t very set on what I wanted with several things so she was able to give me the best options & her opinions on different areas I wasn’t too sure about. The day of coordinator was seriously needed. I didn’t do much and I think that is because Gabby & Rachel just took care of everything. If I needed anything, I told them and like little fairies they made it happen. They were great about keeping us on schedule with all the different events. We had a bottle dropped on the dance floor and they made sure it was taken care of and everyone was back on the dance floor in no time. The next day the whole ML crew was there setting up and getting ready for another wedding but they were so sweet to stop and ask about our night and if we had a great time. I would highly recommend this venue for anyone. It was really a perfect place for our wedding and the staff here is just phenomenal

Going with this venue was hands down the best decision I made throughout the wedding process. The place is beautiful and everyone was so easy to work with. Thalia was an amazing coordinator and without her help I would have been lost. I cannot tell you how many people have come up to me to tell me how smooth my wedding went. Literally, nothing went wrong, nothing. I owe all the credit to Thalia and Memory Lane for all their hard work and planning. They gave me the wedding of my dreams.

What can I say about Memory Lane? SO MUCH!
After months of planning our dream wedding, we can gladly say "We're married!", and it was all due to the massive help from Memory Lane staff. From the very beginning everyone was super helpful- and we needed a lot! From planning to final meetings to the big day, we were happy with how everything turned out.
Our wedding was perfect! No stress, all of us started on time, and the coordinators are LIFESAVERS! I would have had no clue when to walk down the aisle, when to first dance, how to throw a bouquet, without these girls. They helped us immensely throughout the day and we are so pleased with how everything turned out. Our families were so happy to be able to enjoy the day without running around for us- thank you to all of the Memory Lane family that made this happen!
We also used the in house florists, Wild Bunches, which was amazing and so easy. Our bouquets were colorful, exactly how I wanted them and they were really great working with our budget!
And after the whole shindig, we stayed in the residence after the wedding, which was ideal so our wedding party didn't have to drive back to hotels. I felt like a princess the whole day!
Thank you so so much, everyone at Memory Lane!

Memory Lane was one of the first venues I looked at in the Hill Country area before booking my wedding. I toured and talked with many, many after but kept going back to Memory Lane for many reasons. First of all, booking a wedding from 5 hours away is hard, and the ladies were SO extremely patient, attentive and kind during the process. The service and staff if what ultimately led me to book at Memory Lane for our October 10, 2015 wedding. Rachel totally NAILED my floral vision, and Gabby and Thalia are just about as sweet as they come. The ladies did an outstanding job of making me feel so special and listening to all my special requests. I feel so blessed to have shared my day with these special people. Thank you again, ML ladies. You really are the best!

My husband and I got married this past October at Memory Lane and it was the best decision! A beautiful venue in the hill country of dripping springs, spacious set ups for all our guests at the ceremony, cocktail hour and the reception. Our wedding coordinators were perfect, followed everything I asked for to the T! I got a little behind on wedding planning but Gaby and the ML staff kept me on their radar with sweet phone calls and emails. So patient and so kind! The ML staff made our entire year leading up to our big day so easy and stress free! They even stayed on the phone with me the day before the wedding while I shopped at Hobby Lobby for last minute items and needed to know table sizes, number of benches, and last minute questions! The lodging is PERFECT for any wedding party. Great rooms, spacious living room/area for everyone to mingle and gather around. We hosted a brunch the next morning downstairs and their dining area held all of our guests comfortably. Our wedding day ran without any issues, and any changes my husband and I made they handled gracefully with a smile on their face. The venue on the hill top is perfect for any day with the constant breeze on top of the hill. Great for any season! Thank you Memory Lane for nailing our entire weekend. Forever grateful! To any brides considering this venue, make a visit--you wont regret it!

I want to start off by saying WOW, what an experience!!! This was the first venue my husband and I looked at and knew right from the start this is the place we wanted to get married. Most of my family lives in Louisiana so I knew when planning a wedding I had to accommodate the out of towners. Memory Lane has lodging for 15 people-- we had even more than that and everyone was really comfortable. We ended up renting out the venue from Friday- Sunday and had our rehearsal dinner there Friday night! I had my whole bridal party stay the night so we could all bond, open gifts, and have a good time without having to worry about waking up early the next day and driving out to Dripping to start getting ready. Everyone raved how gorgeous it was during the wedding and at the reception. The staff was there every time we needed them and kept everything going smoothly. I HIGHLY recommend Memory Lane for anyone looking to get married in the beautiful hill country! A++

Courtney & Adam

Memory Lane made our wedding day spectacular. The entire scenery is perfection and the lodging and accommodations are such a huge blessing. All of the girls on staff were so helpful and having the wedding day coordinator made my day of such a breeze and so much fun just spending time with my girls without worrying about ANYTHING. I am such a perfectionist and was SURE something would go wrong, but looking back it was absolutely perfect. I am so grateful we found Memory Lane and for all the ladies who work there to make life so easy on the brides ( and grooms). Being able to bring in so many vendors allowed us to save money where we were able and it all flowed so smoothly despite so many people involved. We lived in Houston the majority of our planning and they made long distance wedding planning a breeze. There is not a single thing we would change about our wedding day

First let me say, the coordinators are superb. They're attentive, organized, and just excellent at what they do. I chose to mainly communicate about the wedding planning by email and they almost always answered within a few hours that same day. I highly recommend that everyone signs up for the coordinator package. I did not hire a wedding planner, so this was a life saver. There are also additional decorators you may need to add on to your package (the need for more decorators is determined by how complex the decoration list is that you provide to the coordinator; I did not need any additional decorators) We also chose Wild Bunches as the florist, which is on-site as well. During the times we drove up to the venue throughout the year we were able to have a meeting with both the ML and WB right after, which is a bonus time saver. ML was a one stop shop for us and we did not feel we compromised on anything - we chose their on-site "deluxe" bartender package, DJ, chair and linen rentals as well. We had rented the venue for the whole weekend and all of the wedding party checked in that Friday. The day of the wedding, there were 3 coordinators on-site and they came to touch base with me periodically throughout the day. You may be mostly isolated in the bridal room until the ceremony like I was, so it's a relief for the coordinators to tell you everything is coming together swimmingly. Any questions/issues that come up can also be addressed during this time. Not to mention that my decoration list, which I had thought may be confusing or lengthly, was carried out masterfully. Right when the ceremony is about to start, all the coordinators and DJ are in SWAT team mode and are communicating through mics so the timing is flawless. The DJ did a great job of fading out any songs that were too long so there are no weird abrupt music gaps. If you are doing a sparkler exit (if there is no fire ban), the coordinators completely and efficiently carries out the handing out of sparklers, lighting, and proper disposal. No worries about the logistics of a sparkler exit here. Leftovers from the delicious dinner are packaged and placed into your honeymoon suite and was also left in the main house refrigerator. This is awesome if you didn't get to eat much for dinner or could be a very fancy breakfast/lunch for the next day. The coordinators also would make sure you had the drink of choice in your hand all night as well! I cannot emphasize enough on how wonderful and priceless it is to not have to worry about any unnecessary issues/details on the day of your wedding. All my worries were limited to simply looking my best.
