Elevating Your Private Property Wedding: Your Ultimate Wedding Catering Partner

Elevating Your Private Property Wedding: Your Ultimate Wedding Catering Partner


When it comes to creating unique, personalized wedding experiences, there’s nothing quite like a private property wedding. As a Texas wedding catering team, some of the sweetest celebrations we’ve been a part of are at private properties. 

Wondering how to elevate your private property wedding with wedding catering, full-service support, and a personalized celebration? We have you covered.

Why private property weddings?


When planning a Texas wedding, there are many things to consider. From picking the perfect venue (there are so many options!) to making the seating chart, the to-do list is long. This is where private property weddings come in as a more flexible, personalizable option. 

Private property weddings create a beautiful opportunity for a specialized ceremony and party, whether you’re at a family estate or in a stunning garden — and we love helping our clients pull off magic with these types of weddings. They can be more intimate than larger venue weddings and you can have the option to pick places of sentimental value. 

However, the best part of a private property wedding is actually the lack of restrictions. Since you’re not at a large commercial venue, you’re able to use the vendors you want and celebrate longer into the night. 

Win, win.

Want some inspiration? Here are just a few private property weddings we’ve seen and loved — the opportunities are endless:

  • Family properties, from large estates to grandma’s backyards
  • Texas ranches
  • Beachfront homes
  • Historic estates and manor houses
  • Privately owned gardens and museums
  • Homes owned in the mountains, by the beach, or lakefront


Planning a Texas private property wedding? Keep this in mind

While we’re huge fans of private property weddings for tons of reasons (just read above!), there is something that you can often miss out on — and that’s help with the execution. Since private properties aren’t outfitted with venue staff and processes, you’re often on your own to coordinate things like tents, rentals, catering, and more.

We definitely recommend a wedding planner (reach out to us for recommendations!) — but here are things you’ll still want to keep in mind when planning your private property wedding: 

  • What logistics do you need to consider? As you already know if you’re planning a wedding, the logistics piece can be a beast. When you’re utilizing a private property for your wedding, you’ll want to make sure there is enough parking, signage, transportation, and seats. 
  • Who are your vendors? From your wedding caterer (hi!) and your florist to your DJ, lighting, and rentals, you’ll want to choose trusted partners — and then coordinate them.
  • What’s the weather plan? A lot of private property weddings are outside — it’s just the nature of most of those events. However, this makes them extra susceptible to weather fluctuations. 
  • What’s on the menu, and where is it being prepared? The most important part of a wedding is, well… the love part (of course)! But after that comes the food! No matter where your wedding is, you want to work with a team that will create a completely custom menu. From the cocktails and the hor d’oeuvres to the entree and dessert, our Vestals Catering team creates menus just as unique as your private property venue.

That’s where we come in.


How our wedding catering team helps with private property weddings


As a full-service wedding caterer, we specialize in catering packages that go beyond the simple plated dinner. When you choose us to cater your wedding, you’ll be paired with a wedding specialist who partners with you on everything from your custom wedding menu to your event logistical needs. We can manage your rentals — hello, gorgeous tablescape! — and advise on tenting to keep your guests chic and covered.

Plus, we specialize in off-premise catering. That means we can convert any space—whether it’s a private ranch or a family lakehouse—into a beautiful space for your wedding table.

There’s nothing more important to us than putting our couples at the center of everything we do, and we take great pride in being a trusted part of the most special day of your life. As long-standing Texas wedding professionals, we’re happy to consult on your wedding and create an impeccable experience for you in DFW, Austin, or the state beyond.
