It’s our Summer blog series “Friendor” Friday. Camp Lucy is a top our Dripping Springs Wedding Venue choices! I am honored to have been entrusted by the Whim and Camp Lucy family with their clients for more than five years. Some of my favorite weddings have been on these beautiful grounds, and this Dripping Springs Wedding Venue is second to none in my eyes. Let’s talk details.
Camp Lucy – A Dripping Springs Wedding Venue dream come true
Camp Lucy is seriously a Dripping Springs wedding venue dream come true. Whit and Kim Hanks considered everything when putting these beautiful wedding venues together. As a DJ, the room and acoustics are essential to sound quality. Ian’s Chapel, Sacred Oaks, and Whit’s Inn are all perfect in their own right, for the right crowd size.

Let’s talk options – because Camp Lucy offers the most.
About Whit’s Inn:
Do you have less than 100 person guest count? Consider Whit’s Inn for ceremony and reception.
Whit’s Inn, Camp Lucy’s more intimate luxe-rustic venue, combines a relaxed yet chic design aesthetic with world-class cuisine and service.
The venue is a brilliantly re-purposed barn nestled near flowing Onion Creek, surrounded by lush, mature trees dripping with lights. Inside, barn wood walls, picture windows, Old World brick paver floor, and a gorgeous bar area set the stage for your unforgettable event with all of Camp Lucy’s signature design touches.
In this relaxed yet chic Hill Country setting, you and your guests will enjoy amazing food prepared by our culinary team and served by our professional staff. Whit’s Inn offers a selection of thoughtfully crafted menus for every taste.
About Ian’s Chapel:
“Ian’s Chapel, the original venue at Camp Lucy, is more than just a chapel. This acclaimed venue offers multiple uniquely elegant and unforgettable settings.
Meticulously designed, thoughtfully planned, and built with heart, Ian’s Chapel at Camp Lucy features a restored 19th century French Colonial Chapel and antique bell from Vietnam, a majestic Events Hall created from a repurposed 1800’s Amish barn originally built from hand-hewn white oak timbers in Ohio and a dramatic, open-air Pavilion made from the ironwood timbers of a 1930’s French Colonial church and a Ludowici tile roof repurposed from the Bexar County courthouse in downtown San Antonio. The Great Lawn and the Stone Arch provide breathtaking outdoor ceremony site options.
Complimentary on-site event spaces include an enchanting bridal lounge and handsome groom’s quarters. The Old World brick paved courtyard, lavish Great Lawn, and Chef-inspired catering kitchen makes this venue the hallmark of Camp Lucy.
Ian’s Chapel is the perfect Dripping Springs Wedding Venue for large weddings and events. “
About Sacred Oaks: My personal favorite Dripping Springs Wedding Venue
Named Sacred Oaks to honor the venue’s remarkable setting, this breathtaking space expertly blends the impeccable design and enviable style that are the hallmarks of Camp Lucy with its natural surroundings.
Sacred Oaks features a Great Hall with dramatic timbers, spacious porch perfect for cocktails and Hill Country sunsets, enchanting Bride’s room and comfortable Groom’s quarters, built-in bar, chef-inspired catering kitchen, and lush great lawn. The ancient oaks themselves are the venue’s stars as their grand trunks and twisting branches are thoughtfully enveloped with thousands of perfect, tiny lights, creating a truly magical ceremony site. Sacred Oaks also features a soaring bell tower, separate from the Great Hall structure.
Dripping Springs Wedding Planners
I also want to shout out two of my favorite Dripping Springs Wedding planners from the Camp Lucy family that have helped me with so many of their couple’s weddings. Kim Hunt with KH Events and Tara Blackwell with Lotus Events have both been instrumental in my successful weddings at Camp Lucy. You can’t go wrong when choosing one of them to help plan your Dripping Springs or Austin wedding!
