For our in-house catering team: "Dear Tiffany and Chef Rob, Oh my - the calls have not stopped! I must tell you that our guests have attended many weddings…and some in the most exclusive places in the country. Their feedback is that none have experienced a more beautiful venue with food that was as wonderful as you provided. Truly, everyone was blown away by your menu and could not have been more complimentary! I'm amazed at how you are able to make such a huge party run so effortlessly. Guess that's what you call professionals! You and your team put so much thought and hard work into making the wedding one that will be forever remembered - I am grateful!! Kind Regards, Elizabeth … P.S. gotta say one more time - food was outstanding and so are y'all!"
"From the minute my (now) husband, Tim, and I stepped into Camp Lucy over a year ago, we were in love! Every inch of the venue is so detailed and perfect. You will get a perfect picture no matter where you are standing. For us -- we wanted an outdoor ceremony and indoor reception in one location that would accommodate around 200 guests. And Camp Lucy offered everything that we were looking for and more. We couldn't have created a better location if we had built it ourselves.
"Tim and I were planning our wedding from halfway across the country in California. So, of course, I was anxious to get back to Camp Lucy to see it again after a year of being away. Our wedding coordinators and Terri Hawkins at Camp Lucy scheduled our rehearsal the day before our wedding day. And Tim and I were pleasantly surprised that not a single thing had changed. Every detail that we loved was even more beautiful after being away for so long. We envisioned how our entire wedding day would look and feel, and we were so excited!
"We had the most romantic and magical wedding day at Camp Lucy. Terri was absolutely amazing, she was attentive and helpful all day. Our coordinators executed every minute with perfection. My bridesmaids and I relaxed in the Bride's Cottage and Tim and his groomsmen hung out in the Groom's Quarters before all the festivities began. These were the perfect places to get ready for our big day. And we were so lucky to have perfect weather in the middle of October. All week weathermen were saying there was a 50% percent chance of rain! But sure enough, the rain held out until 11:05pm after we and our guests had left!
"It truly was the most special day, and Camp Lucy provided a gorgeous backdrop. I highly recommend this venue, and I'm hoping I get a chance to visit or attend an event at their new venue Sacred Oaks. From the photos I've seen, it's just as lovely!!
"Thank you so much Terri and Camp Lucy for giving us the wedding of our dreams!!!" - Amanda, wedding 10/12/2013 (via WeddingWire)
"I cannot rave enough about Camp Lucy! When I found it online I had to fly to Austin to see if this place really looked as amazing as it does online. Camp Lucy looks even better in person. Our wedding was a destination wedding and CL is the best spot to get married. All of our guests cannot stop talking about it. Their staff go above and beyond! Their floral team is AMAZING! They provided the flowers for my wedding and we were all just blown away. Special thank yous to Kim Hunt and to Sandy at Camp Lucy! Camp Lucy is gorgeous and you should pick Camp Lucy for your wedding." - Stephanie, wedding 09/26/2013 (via WeddingWire)
"Second best choice of my life! (Besides saying 'yes' to the groom!)...We had our 9/21/13 wedding at Camp Lucy, from the first time I stepped onto the grounds I knew I had found something special. I would have moved mountains to marry my best friend here and I'm so lucky we were able to have our beautiful and perfect day here. The ENTIRE process was smooth, welcoming and fun. I can't tell you how many guests commented on our wedding saying it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever been to, I know it was largely thanks to the magical setting that is camp lucy. Thanks to everyone there including Diane and the Camp Lucy floral team." - Wedding 9/21/13 (via TheKnot)
"Having a 'desitnation wedding' in Austin was a no brainer for me, but throughout the process not everyone was on the same page. It was during the reception people came up to me and told me they finally understood why I wanted my wedding at Camp Lucy. They were amazed by the peaceful aspect and gorgeous venue that Camp Lucy offered. Terri was an absolute doll to work with, and made sure everything at Camp Lucy ran so smooth. I can't say enough wonderful things about Camp Lucy, and I can't wait to get my wedding pictures back to relive all of the great moments we had that night!" - Stacie, wedding 9/14/2013 (via WeddingWire)
"I would highly recommend Camp Lucy to anyone and everyone! Such a gorgeous back drop for our wedding day! The staff is professional and on point, assisting with anything you need. The reception hall is stunning and even with minimal decorations, the place looks amazing! We had 300 people at our wedding and there was more than plenty of space to dance, drink, socialize, and eat. I can't wait to attend someone else's wedding at this location!" - Alissa, wedding 4/2013 (via The Knot)
"Our experience at Camp Lucy was fantastic! This is not only the most beautiful wedding venue on the planet, but the folks at Camp Lucy are awesome as well! They answered all of my questions from day one and they responded to my every worry and detail until the day of the wedding and even afterwards. I would recommend Camp Lucy in Dripping Springs, TX. to anyone that wants to have a Texas style wedding in the beautiful hill country. Well, let me not limit it to Texas style wedding because the venue is versatile as well. Make it a point to check them out! They are worth every penny and your guests will agree!" - Grace Ann, wedding 9/16/12 (via WeddingWire)
"We were just married at Camp Lucy this past Sunday and it was the best choice I could have made. The property is absolutely exquisite. Because the property is so beautiful it truly doesn't need much in terms of decoration as you find with many venues. It's a one stop shop with a chapel, pavilion and event center which allows you to keep your guests experiencing new things w/o requiring them to travel. The location is a bit remote and can for some be a bit difficult to find but the venue is well worth it. I can't imagine having been married anywhere else. The staff is wonderful and easy to talk to and they are always willing to work with you. Best venue in Austin and surrounding areas by far!" - Natalie, wedding 9/2/12 (via WeddingWire)
"Once I saw this venue, I knew that nothing else was going to compare, and I was right. Lucky for me, my fiance (now husband) and parents agreed. :) The beauty of Camp Lucy really speaks for itself...the grounds and facilities are just absolutely gorgeous. Our guests certainly agreed! There are some rules that they are not flexible on, but it is all clearly stated in the contract. So, just make sure you read and understand everything upfront, and, if you don't, just ask! :) During the months leading up to our wedding, our phone calls/emails were always returned in a timely manner (especially once additional staff was added). A couple of months before our big day, we were assigned a specific staff member who would serve as our primary point of contact and as our site manager on the day of the wedding. I think someone was looking out for us because we were assigned the absolutely BEST person possible! Kim Hunt was a dream to work with. She answered every question we had (usually within five minutes)! She worked with us to make some things happen that normally wouldn't even fall under her list of responsibilities. When my bridal portrait session ran longer than the time allowed by Camp Lucy, she told me not to worry about it--just to enjoy all the pictures that were being taken! She even got me bottled water and helped me carry my photo props from place to place. During the rehearsal, she was there to help in any way she could. And, on the day of the wedding, she arrived early so that we could get in and start getting everything set up. She helped me unload our u-haul full of stuff (yes, we had that much stuff! haha) so that I wouldn't get sweaty. She helped solve a last-minute issue with our ceremony seating. She checked in with me throughout the day/night just to make sure everything was going perfectly! I truly cannot say enough about how wonderful Kim Hunt was. As far as Camp Lucy goes, I can't imagine a better place to get married...seriously! - Amanda, wedding 8/4/12 (via WeddingWire)
"Camp Lucy was a wonderful site for my daughter's wedding which she had in the chapel. The reception was in the Event Hall. Andrea was so quick to get back with me if I had questions and was very accommodating. Kim, our wedding day coordinator, was great too. It was a wonderful experience." - Diane, wedding 6/15/12 (via WeddingWire)
"Camp Lucy is sooo beautiful. It is a great choice for anyone because the property is so versatile. My wedding here was like a fairy tale. Andrea and Robin are such a pleasure to work with!" - Ashley, wedding 5/26/12 (via WeddingWire)
"Camp Lucy is the most enchanting place in the Texas Hill Country. I have already had 5 people tell me it was the BEST wedding they have ever been to. Mainly because the grounds at Camp Lucy are just PERFECT for a wedding. Andrea was my main contact at Camp Lucy and she helped me ANYTIME with ANYTHING and was actually very flexible regarding a couple things that I asked for that were not stated in the contract. You can't beat having an outdoor wedding on a gorgeous lawn and with Texas weather there is always a risk of rain and the Chapel is a PERFECT Plan B. Couldn't imagine my wedding being anywhere else in the world." - Melody, wedding 5/15/2012 (via WeddingWire)
"Our daughter got married at Camp Lucy in August and if the were 10 stars available we would give it all 10 stars. The grounds are beautiful, the chappel is great, and the event hall is fantastic. The staff at camp Lucy, well you just couldnt ask for any better. Everything went smooth as silk. If your planning a Hill Country Wedding this is the place. Thanks to all." - Dewey and Debbie Fitzgerald, daughter's wedding 8/11/12 (via The Knot)
"Where do I begin? The minute I saw the website for Camp Lucy, I knew IT WAS THE PLACE FOR ME...However, as skeptical as I can be at times, I thought...surely, the pictures were edited and not a true representation of this place?? Well, the venue was even more beautiful than the pictures. I was sold on the location the minute I got off the car and smelled the hill country air...I want to live there! Camp Lucy's staff changed a few times on me during my planning however, who I ended up working with was Tammy Garrett and she was a "God Send." She was patient, professional and made me feel great about my choice and my decisions along the way (she was honest as well). The venue does have a list of caterers that are recommended...I chose to go with the in-house caterer Verdes Mexican Padilla. Another reason why this location as absolutely fantastic! The food and the service provided by Verdes (Joel and Allana) was extra special! Together, they made me feel like the "Queen" for a day! Again, I would pick Camp Lucy everytime!!" - Grace Soliz, wedding 9/16/12 (via The Knot)
