  • How much does the venue cost?
    The standard wedding pricing starts at $5,620 and includes everything you need for your wedding: use of our indoor Barn, Bridal Nest, Groom’s Hideout, as well as our outdoor Pavilion, Patio, oak tree Ceremony site, and lush lawn areas; tables and chairs set up to your specifications with linens; Security and venue staff; on-site parking; and more!
  • What is the venue capacity?
    Our indoor capacity is 250.
  • How long is the venue rental?
    Standard wedding rentals include a 4-hour reception. They begin at 11AM and end 1 hour after the reception ends.
  • How do I book a tour?
    You can book a tour directly on our website, via email, phone, or text! We can’t wait to help you plan your event.
  • Will you hold my wedding date until I'm ready to book?
    Unfortunately, no. We cannot hold wedding dates. Dates are booked on a first-come, first-served basis and require a completed rental agreement and applicable deposits to be successfully booked.
  • How do I reserve a date with the venue?
    Reserving a date at the venue requires a completed rental agreement, non-refundable deposit, and fully refundable damage deposit.
  • What is the payment plan/process for events?
    Upon booking your event date, you will pay ½ standard wedding pricing + $500 fully refundable damage deposit (total $3,310). Three months prior to your event date, you will have your 3-Months Meeting to finalize guest count, event schedule, and other details. At this point you will pay your full balance: the remainder ½ standard wedding cost + additional required and optional items/services, if applicable.
  • What payment methods are accepted?
    We accept cash, checks, money orders, and cashier’s checks. Credit/debit cards are also accepted, but a 5% processing fee will be incurred.
  • What if my date is not available?
    Think about what is most important to you: a peak-season Saturday or the memories of your event? Consider a peak-season Friday evening wedding. Your guests will have the remainder of the weekend to explore a bit of West Texas and you could add a following Saturday brunch for your closest friends to relax and talk about great wedding memories – maybe even open your wedding gifts. If you skipped Vista Cielo Rosa because the Saturday you wanted was not available, please consider a Friday evening event. We promise that a Friday at Vista Cielo Rosa will be more perfect than a Saturday at a lesser venue. Alternatively, imagine a different Saturday – maybe an elegant winter wedding. Wouldn’t you prefer a beautiful and memorable winter Saturday wedding where guests dress up a notch and gather for laughter at the cozy outdoor fireplace, rather than a peak-season Saturday night wedding at a non-memorable venue that your guests quickly forget?
  • Can we extend or change the hours of our event?
    Yes! We will review and finalize your event timeline during your 3-Months Meeting. After this, the timeline for your event may only be changed on a case-by-case basis.
  • Where can my out of town guests stay?
    There are several Airbnb accommodations and casitas in Christoval. Alternatively, there are many hotels and accommodations in San Angelo, just a short drive from the venue.
  • Are children allowed?
    Yes! Children are always welcome; however, we ask that they not be left unattended in the Nest or Hideout. Additionally, since our venue sits on nearly 21 acres of rustic, natural land, children should not be allowed to play outside without adult supervision.
  • Can my pet be in the ceremony?
    Yes! Fur babies are always welcome to be a part of your ceremony; however, with the exception of service dogs, pets are never allowed inside. Pets must be on a leash at all times. We recommend that pets be the responsibility of someone other than the bride or groom. Additionally, poop must be picked up in a timely manner
  • Will someone from your staff be available the day of our event?
    Yes! At least one staff member will be onsite the day of the event to ensure the venue is being maintained, rules are being followed, the bar is stocked, and questions are answered as they arise. Staff will not direct vendors, set up decorations, or assist with your set up or event process in any way. If you need assistance with these activities, you will need an experienced Day of Coordinator, which we highly recommend for a smooth and effortless day. You may opt to obtain one on your own, or you may utilize our Day of Coordinator at a reasonable additional cost.
  • Can we have a rehearsal or rehearsal dinner at the venue?
    If you would like to rehearse your wedding ceremony, a one-hour time slot the day before the event may be available (availability can be confirmed at your 3-Months Meeting) for a nominal fee. Alcohol consumption is prohibited during rehearsals. Rehearsal dinners are contracted as separate events
  • Do you have a designated smoking area?
    Smoking is allowed 50 feet or more from entrances and only in designated areas (parking lot and patio). Smoking receptacles are provided in each designated smoking area. Smoking (including e-cigarettes and vape pens) is never allowed inside the facility, including the private accommodations and restrooms.
  • Who supplies the tables, chairs, and linens? Do you have additional color options for linens?
    We provide tables, chairs, and linens for all rentals. White linens are utilized for dining tables and black linens are utilized for service tables. We do not offer additional color options currently, but you are always welcome to provide linens of your choosing. Table and chair set-up in the Barn will be completed before your event so there is no disruption between your ceremony and reception.
  • Do you provide glassware or tableware and/or is it allowed?
    We do not provide any glassware or tableware, but it is allowed. We do have chargers available on our Rentals List.
  • Do you have a kitchen or food prep area?
    We do not have a kitchen or a food prep area, so all food needs to arrive prepared and ready to serve. Caterers are required to remove all trash relative to their event services. Leftover pans of food or cake are not to be disposed of in the venue-provided trash receptacles. Food trucks are also a good option.
  • Are we required to use vendors from your Preferred Vendor List?
    No. We have an open vendor policy so you are free to use your choice of vendors. We offer a Preferred Vendor List because many of our couples ask for our recommendations.
  • What are the clean up requirements?
    Guests will need to dispose of trash in provided trash receptacles. Decorations, flowers, and leftover food and cake will need to be taken with you when you leave the venue. Our staff will handle all standard clean up and trash removal from receptacles throughout and following the wedding reception.
  • Can we bring our decorations and other items the day before the event? And can we leave them after the event to pick up the next day?
    No to both. Decorations and other event items may only be delivered after the start of your rental period. Then the venue must be clear of all items by the end of your rental period. We want to ensure that the space is beautiful and ready for the next event's guests.
  • Are any decorations prohibited?
    Table decorations and flowers are typically allowed but items such as nails, screws, staples, duct tape, tape, tacks, glue, paint, confetti of any kind (even if it says biodegradable), glitter, sand, gel-like substances, dark-colored fresh flower petals, decorations that will damage floors, ceilings, or walls, loose candies or items that will stain the linens, rice, silly string, and balloons for release are not permitted. One unity candle is permitted but all other candles need to be flameless/battery operated. Command strips and hooks may be used on the walls if needed. Bird seed, soap bubbles, and balloon arch spray may be used outside only.
  • Can we use sparklers?
    The use of sparklers is only permitted with specific written consent and only when Tom Green County is not in a burn ban. If authorized, sparklers may only be lit at the main entrance and parking lot. A sand bucket is also required with the use of sparklers.
  • Is security required? Do we have to hire our own bartenders and security or do we have to utilize your security and bartenders?
    Security is required for all events and bartenders are required if alcohol is to be served. Our staff bartenders are TABC-certified and we typically obtain officers with the Tom Green County Sheriff’s Department to provide security services. We take care of all this for you.
  • What is the alcohol policy?
    Our alcohol policy allows you to provide the alcohol for the event, purchased from wherever you choose and delivered to the venue). The alcohol must be served by our TABC-certified staff bartenders. Guests cannot provide their own alcohol (no BYOB). You may choose any beer (kegs, cans, or bottles are all permitted), seltzers, wine, or champagne you like and one option for a signature cocktail. Any unopened alcohol may go home with you at the end of the event.
  • Are bartender gratuities included?
    Bartender gratuities are not included in our rental fees but are happily accepted and appreciated.
  • Does Uber or Lyft travel to the venue?
    Typically, Uber and Lyft are happy to bring guests to the event, but they are less likely to pick guests back up for the return trip due to the later time. We recommend the use of a transportation vendor (ask about our Preferred Vendor List) to ensure safe and timely guest arrival and departure.
  • Is the parking lot included in the venue rental?
    Yes! Our parking lots, on venue premises, can accommodate up to 250 guest vehicles. For events with a capacity over 200 guests, our second-tier parking lot may be utilized, and we provide a parking attendant to direct traffic at no additional cost to you.
  • Can I leave my vehicle overnight?
    Unfortunately, we do not allow overnight parking since our property is gated. Please advise your guests of this policy and/or provide additional transportation options.
  • In case of rain, what is the plan for the ceremony/event?
    If it looks like rain is likely on the day of your outdoor event, we will transition to your Plan B (which you determine at your 3-Months Meeting). Plan B options will be either (1) moving the ceremony under our covered pavilion (150 guest capacity), or (2) hosting your ceremony in our Barn, completely inside. There’s no bad event location at Vista Cielo Rosa because all of them are beautiful in their own way – and there’s no additional cost if you need to transition to your Plan B!
  • West Texas is hot, do you have air conditioning?
    Yes! All our indoor facilities are air conditioned. We like for our couples and guests to be cool and comfortable.
  • Do you provide umbrellas, fans, or heaters in case of weather?
    We do not provide umbrellas or additional fans or heaters, other than those permanently installed in the venue and Pavilion. You are always welcome to bring or rent your own.
  • If something happens and we must cancel our event, can I get a refund??
    Damage deposits are fully refundable. Event bookings/payments are non-refundable. Extenuating circumstances are treated on a case-by-case basis.
