Wow! First of all, any place that has a dog named Prince and Elvis images hanging on the walls is something pretty special in my book. Even with that aside, this Wimberley wedding venue had everything… and I mean EVERYTHING going for it… even its very own love story.
Firefly Farm Venue Review, Wimberley Wedding Venue
I have got to get this piece of information out there first! If you are currently searching for a Wimberley wedding venue, or Blanco wedding venue, schedule a visit with this one quickly. This one is currently booking at introductory prices but as they add features and amenities, the prices will go up. You can almost steal this Wimberley wedding venue right now.
Payton and Dylan are the perfect hosts because they were the venue’s very first wedding couple. In their search for the perfect wedding backdrop, they stumbled across this gem—not yet a wedding venue. With a lot of hard work, determination and good planning, they muscled this ranch into what you see today for their October 1, 2016 wedding. Most couples’ wedding planning tasks don’t include “build a venue.” That should give you deep insight into Payton and Dylan’s work ethic, love and dedication to one another. Plus, if you just watch their five-star wedding highlight film by Oak & Cypress Films featured on their website, you can personally witness their total devotion for each other… and Firefly Farm’s sense of beauty and romanticism.
Just in case you can’t stop what you’re doing right now and get to the Firefly Farm, here’s the tour:

We’ll start with the Big Red Barn. It houses the indoor reception area, a caterer’s kitchen, the bridal room and a three-bedroom, two-bath apartment (bridal suite).
The Big Red Barn is a 6,000 square foot, climate controlled building that can be used as a wedding or reception space. It has beautiful, aged barn wood, rustic tin ceilings, stained concrete floors, and beautiful crystal chandeliers. There is a built-in bar and a stage with a dedicated entrance for the DJ or band.
The catering kitchen has six stainless steel, rolling tables and a commercial ice machine. It also has its own private parking, entrance and bathroom. There is 1,000 square feet of working space.
The bridal room is SWEET! It has a salon chair, make-up bar, and extra sitting. It has a full-length mirror, closet and its own private bathroom.
Just across the hall from the bridal room, is the bridal suite. There is a full kitchen, dining room, and lounging area. There are also three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. You can see for miles from this second-story apartment.
The rustic chapel is the cutest! It currently serves as the only outdoor ceremony site. However, plans are currently in place to build an additional covered, yet open, outdoor ceremony site. It faces the setting sun which allows the stain-glass windows to reflect beautiful, colored rays of light. And, it has antique church doors and a real steeple! There are 81 rustic, wooden pews for seating, and additional standing room.
The side doors from the Big Red Barn lead right to the outdoor reception area. There is an outdoor bar and several oak barrel tables. This space can also accommodate additional tables and chairs.
Okay, fellas… who wouldn’t love the spend their wedding eve in this? This solid limestone house is 2,000 wide open, square feet of fun! You have access to a kitchen (sink, microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker), a full indoor bathroom and four outdoor shower stalls with privacy, and a back patio with a grill. You also have access to a flat screen television, pool table, poker table, rustic bar and a large lounging area. There are four queen-sized beds with privacy curtains.
As if there weren’t enough features already, this Wimberley wedding venue also has six adorable, festive-colored, smaller guest cabins. Each features a flat screen TV and seating area, sleeping quarters for two, a full bath and a kitchenette. And, all the cabins’ guests can meet in the middle for a marshmallow roast around the fire ring.
The Green Room, pictured below on the right side, is a quiet and private room for the band and/or vendors—another reason I love this venue!! They thought of me… well, not ME, but people like me. And, this is the room with Elvis. This quaint little room is comfortable for up to ten people, has a refrigerator, microwave, coffee machine, and a flat screen TV.
Everything about this Wimberley wedding venue is so comfy and well-kept. You will leave wanting to plan every anniversary party here. Payton and Dylan have really outdone themselves They haven’t left any stones unturned… they have done everything humanly possible to create the perfect backdrop for a Texas hill country wedding. Again, if you are in the midst of planning your wedding and you’re lucky enough that you haven’t booked your wedding venue yet, get over here! Check this out the Firefly Farm! You won’t regret making this trip.

I am a San Antonio-based wedding photographer and I cater to outdoor-loving couples who prefer to have all the realness captured on their wedding days. I am the wedding photographer for the outdoor adventurers, the romantics, the laid back, the snugglers, and those who wish to capture all their realness.
I am absolutely in love with capturing the kinds of weddings where there are more hugs than handshakes, the dance floor rumbles all night long, and chairs are pretty much rendered useless after dinner. Whiskey bottles are passed around, most of the wedding party has been best-best friends since kindergarten, Grams is likely to lose her shoes and your partner is much more emotional than you are. These kinds of weddings are my jam!
I started Ata-Girl Photography Co., LLC in 2010. I firmly believe that the unique set of circumstances I have faced in life has prepared me to take a personal and genuine interest in my photography clients. I enjoy documenting the important milestones and captivating moments in people’s lives. I love being a part of people’s journey and consider myself privileged to document their legacies.
I am a WPPI-C certified professional, full-time wedding photographer. I specialize in a 10-day image delivery, same-day prints, same-day slideshows, Italian handcrafted wedding albums and I have a mobile meeting space.
When I’m not behind my camera, you can find me hiking, cycling, backpacking, camping, enjoying water sports, listening to music (Elvis and Prince), hunting for arrowheads, reading audiobooks, occasionally eating a few glazed donuts (my only weakness to sweets) and then re-starting my keto diet about every 10 days. The most important things in life are for me to see my two daughters happy and to create a family history my grandparents and grandson would be proud of.
