See What People Are Saying About Ma Maison….

Fabulous Staff

“What a gorgeous venue and what a fabulous staff! Ma Maison was the first place we visited and ultimately our first choice. Karen is a wonderful resource for vendors, ideas and inspiration. She has created a beautiful wedding venue with all of the amenities. My daughter and her groom had the most perfect wedding day. Karen and her team were there to offer support and to make sure the day ran smoothly. We are so grateful to Karen for helping to create the perfect wedding for our family. I would highly recommend Ma Maison as your Hill Country wedding venue.”~ Kara Kenny (Mother of the Bride) | Wedding Date: October 28, 2017

1,000 Times Over

“I can not say enough about how wonderful this location and the staff were! Karen is a joy to work with and has built an incredible venue with exceptional people. I would choose this place 1,000 times over and absolutely love the experience every single time! Thank you to Karen and the entire team for the wonderful wedding!”~ Kristen Kenny (Bride) | Wedding Date: October 28, 2017

Diverse Space 

“Ma Maison is a gorgeous venue. We are so glad we selected it for our wedding. We were drawn to Ma Maison because of the diversity of the space. There are so many options for your big day and your guests. We had a beautiful cocktail hour on the trellis and adjacent lawn. Thisgave our guests some exposure to the mystical outdoor ambiance that Dripping Springs has to offer. We then had a glamours reception with a plated dinner for 175 guests. The change is scenery was exactly what we wanted for our big day and our guests raved about their experience at our wedding. Karen and team were so easy to work with. We are so thankful we found Ma Maison.”~ Claudia Andrade (Bride) | Wedding Date: September 23, 2017

The BEST Wedding Venue 

“Ma Maison is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. Right when we drove onto the property it felt like we were entering a beautiful retreat area. The beautiful landscaping, views, and trees, combined with the tasteful architecture, makes you forget the outside world,even for just a peaceful moment. Everything about Ma Maison was built to be a wedding venue-the BEST wedding venue. But you know you’ve hit the jackpot when you meet the ‘Ma’ of Ma Maison, Karen. She is the most generous, compassionate and loving person you will ever meet! The perfect person you want to be interacting with when you are in one of the most important seasons of your life. Karen and her wonderful staff did everything in their power so that we had the best day of our lives on our wedding day. During the whole planning process, we never had to talk about something twice, once Karen understood what we were trying to do, that was it. It was then magical to see everything come to life that we had talked about without a single detail being missed. We are soooo grateful to God to have Ma Maison intertwined in our life story and we will never be able to repay what Karen did for our wedding day! Thank you! <3″~ Melat Fiseha (Bride) | Wedding Date: July 23, 2017

Incredible Experience 

“We had an incredible experience with Ma Maison. The entire process was very easy from our very first visit to our wedding day. Every guest told us that it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever been to and for good reason! Our guests loved how much space there was both indoors with every space being more beautiful than the next. The amount of beautiful locations to take photos is incredible – especially at the green cathedral! Not to mention, their in-house caterer was outstanding! Thank you, Karen, for a wonderful experience.”~ Stephanie Brown (Bride) | Wedding Date: May 13, 2017

We Knew Ma Maison Was It

“We visited 7 different venues to find the perfect place to have our wedding. Once we stepped into Ma Maison and saw all the different gathering places and Karen’s dog running around with her as she gave us a tour, we knew Ma Maison was it! Throughout the process, Karenresponded to my emails within 24 hours (I had endless questions), and her staff helped me think about much of the logistics. Our wedding occurred in March when the bluebonnets were in bloom – it was beautiful! The bridal suite and groom’s den were so comfortable and inviting. The guests raved about the outdoor ceremony area, enjoyed the trellis for cocktail hour, and had a blast watching us walk down from the 2nd floor of the reception hall to make our grand entrance. At the end of the night, we did a glow stick exit outside; it was a wonderful ending to a special night. Thank you, Karen and team!”~ Maricel Dona (Bride) | Wedding Date: March 31, 2017

Best Decision

“I cannot even begin to explain how perfect Ma Maison is. I will try to my best to summarize. #1. The Owner — SO….around 3AM the morning of the wedding, a good portion of the bridal party (including myself), all woke up with TERRIBLE food poisoning. I was worried about making it down the aisle. Karen, the owner, stopped in to greet the bridal party upon our arrival to the venue, and quickly learned of our food poisoning. As the hair and makeup girls went to work, Karen (who is also a nurse), immediately got to work to make sure that we were all taken care of. She could not have been more helpful, kind, gracious….she’s incredible. While we all remained sick through the evening, Karen continued to check in on all of us and had the caterer make us special meals. While I could go on and on about Karen, know this — she is the best. You won’t find a better venue owner. Period. #2. The Venue — Two weeks after our engagement, we toured venues (I had read online about how the best wedding venues in ATX often get booked more than a year out — this is true! Don’t delay!). We ended up touring 17 venues in one week/weekend. Because of the flooding that weekend, we had to change our route to Ma Maison and were running late. Since we were on such a tight schedule, we did not get the full tour. Karen gave us a super quick walk-through, but that was all we needed. We both knew the second we saw the property/venue that this was the one for us. It is perfect. Karen, who planned weddings for 20+ years prior to building this property, did not miss a detail. She knew exactly what the perfect wedding venue needs, and she executed it perfectly with Ma Maison. Every vendor loves working there, every guest loves visiting there, and I could not have been happier with our entire experience. It really is a picture-perfect venue with a fantastic owner and staff. I can’t say enough good things about Ma Maison. Best decision we made for our wedding.”~ Julie Frost (Bride) | Wedding Date: December 30, 2016

So Organized and Super Helpful

I own Oh Happy Day Booth, a photo booth company here in Austin, and we were hired to work a recent wedding at Ma Maison. I cannot say enough good things about the venue and its staff! The coordinators are so organized and super helpful before and during the wedding. Everything went so smoothly and it was such a great experience not only for the couple that got married, but for all the vendors involved in helping make the reception a success. ~ Kelsey Harrison (Wedding Vendor)

Absolute Dream

“I believe that the venue is the most important part of your wedding (other than marrying the love of your life!) and Ma Maison made my wedding feel like a fairy tale. My guests came from 2 different continents and over 25 different states and a month later, I am STILL hearing from my guests from all over the world how Ma Maison was the most unique wedding venue they have ever seen. It truly is that special. If you are lucky enough to get a date here (this place is popular…book as soon as you get engaged!) do not even hesitate. There will be plenty of decisions you will make as a bride and believe me when I tell you this one is a no brainer. Venue: The grounds are stunning- it feels as if you have your own castle for the day. My guests were spread out over the beautiful trellis with string lights during cocktail hour, my mom and her friends relaxed near the large firepit, guests were taking pictures by the huge fountain on the lake and I was able to have a snow cone food truck come in and set up near the large oak trees in the grove. I had my ceremony at the Green Cathedral and it made wedding decor inexpensive because with the setting so gorgeous, you really don’t need to add anything. Other venues require you to spend tons of money dressing up the space to make it stand out, whereas my bridesmaids were floored when they walked into Ma Maison on the wedding day.. and that’s before we even decorated! Communication: Karen was absolutely wonderful. She was always quick to email me back (same day!) when I had questions, never got frustrated when I had a million things to ask, and offered up her favorite vendors to make my planning go smoothly when I had to push up the date 4 months early. She sees you as a person and not as a customer and does everything she can to make sure that this really is the best day of your life. I can not recommend this venue enough – it was an absolute dream!” ~ Tabeen Islam (Bride) | Wedding Date: August 13, 2016

Daughter’s Dream Wedding

“My daughter and her fiancee chose Ma Maison for their June 4 wedding. Just a lovely and elegant setting, inside and out. Gorgeous grounds, furnishings, accents and the Bride’s room was spectacular. Karen and her team provided a seamless and beautiful wedding event, in spite of turning to “plan B”. The Trellis did not disappoint! All was the perfect backdrop for my daughter’s dream wedding!” ~Diane Nelson (Mother of the Bride) | Wedding Date: June 4, 2016

Pinterest Worthy

Came here for a wedding and the atmosphere was impeccable. Outdoor wedding- beautiful, Pinterest worthy. Would love to have my wedding at a place this lovely. ~ Annie (Guest) | Wedding Date: May 28, 2016

Not One Detail Missing

“I got married at Ma Maison this May and I cannot say enough about this wonderful venue or about Karen and her wonderful team. As soon as I walked into the bridal suite, I knew this was where I had to get married-I even cried! Karen thought of everything; the flow of the venue is PERFECT, not one detail missing. Both bride and groom get  a private suite. Multiple ceremony site options, a beautiful built in rain plan. Every single corner of this place is photo opp worthy. And that is just the venue! What really sets Ma Maison apart is the support Karen provides. She is so knowledgeable and give amazing support and advice. She even collected some rain water from our special day for us to save–and yes, we did have to use the rain plan, and the built in option is so beautiful! She really does EVERYTHING. We had such a wonderful experience here, and our wedding was absolutely gorgeous. Thanks so much Karen and family! We loved sharing the beginning of the rest of our lives with you. XOXO” ~ Kristy Cline (Bride) | Wedding Date: May 14, 2016

Make Ma Maison Your First Stop

“My wife and I were married at Ma Maison in May of this year and can’t be more pleased with our decision to host our event in such an awesome location. We looked at eleven venues total in the Austin/Dripping Springs area, but after seeing Ma Maison, the fourth place we saw, I was sure it was the spot for us. My wife is a little more indecisive, but after seeing the other places, she was convinced  as well. The choice really was easy.  First off, if you’re looking for a great hill country setting, Ma Maison has beautiful live oaks, awesome spring wildflowers, and the rolling hills you’re after. Also, not only are the facilities brand new, but they’re well kept and always being updated (I can’t tell you how many places we saw that needed fresh paint). The flow of the facilities for guests to get from the ceremony to cocktail hour to reception are great as well for people looking to host a wedding and reception on site. With multiple ceremony sites, you’re sure to find what you’re looking for. The bridal suite and grooms quarters were the best of any place we had seen. Even down to smaller touches like super nice bathrooms and nice finishings made the place feel more homey than commercial. Of course, one of the biggest positives for this place is Karen, the owner,f who has wealth of knowledge about weddings and can give plenty of suggestions on local vendors  and even day of planning ideas. One of the biggest turnoffs of other places we looked at were owners/managers that were unfriendly or seemed aloof and clueless. Karen is both friendly and knowledgeable, and you couldn’t as for a better person to lead you through this process.  If I had any advice for people looking at this venue, I would say to make it your first stop when you’re scheduling appointments to see venues. If it’s your kind of place, you’ll know right away, and there won’t be any need to see anything else.” ~ Lawton Cook (Groom) | Wedding Date: May 6, 2016
