Videre Estate

Wimberly, Texas


Nestled in the hills of Wimberley's countryside, just northwest of the town, lies a place of exceptional beauty: the Videre Estate. This Latin word, Videre, conveys the notion that its beauty is so stunning that it must be experienced to be believed. This luxurious ranch-style wedding venue covers over 500 acres of Wimberley's hill country, formerly known as the Rough Hollow Ranch until it was acquired and transformed into the Videre Estate in 2020. The estate is a dream come true for those seeking a modern, lavish wedding venue that also provides the enchanting Texas Hill Country experience. The Summit, situated next to the breathtaking Videre Lake, which spans eight acres, presents one of the most stunning panoramic views imaginable.

The Videre Estate offers you the option to spend a day or the entire weekend there. The stables have ample room to lodge you and your closest guests, while the serene lake and rolling hills present perfect opportunities for swimming, hiking, and other outdoor activities on Sunday. In essence, Videre Estate is not just a wedding venue but a place that fosters closer relationships with friends, family, and partners alike.

The Summit, formerly a ranch house, was transformed by the Collins family into a grand architectural masterpiece with multiple levels overlooking Videre Lake. The wedding and party deck offers a one of the most breathtaking views you and your guests will see of Wimberley. The Summit is one of the crown jewels of Hill Country, boasting marble floors, glamourus chandeliers, and a spectacular panoramic view of the rolling hillside.

Looking for a Videre Estate Approved Photographer?

That would be us!

If we had to describe the Videre Estate in one single sentence, we would say that Videre Estate is a luxury wedding venue that also thinks it is an elopement destination. We have been to over one hundred wedding venues in the Austin area. There is no view of hill country like the one you will see off the deck of the Summit. The hills just keep going and going as far as your eye can see. 
Another one of our favorite places at Videre Estate is the pond that is right by the Stables. The water is so blue, just as blue as the ocean in the Bahamas! With over 500 acres, the opportunities for epic portraits are endless!
Videre Estate also has a fantastic backup plan in case it rains. That is so important to photographers. There is so much beautiful natural light that pours into the Summit. Videre Estate gives us the peace of mind that no matter what the weather has in store for us, our couple is going to have their day captured beautifully.
Alisha and her entire team really make vendors feel at home.  They make their couples feel relaxed and cared for. The passion they have for serving couples shows so well when they speak to you. You aren't just another face to Alisha, you are family.
