The Gage Hotel made my dream wedding come true. We had almost all of our guests stay there, so it was awesome that nobody had to leave once the "party" was over. Ann Urban is absolutely incredible. ... Read more She will work with your budget, preferences, and any specifics you want.

When I first showed my fiance' The Gage Hotel, she immediately noticed what I'd seen visiting there previously on motorcycle trips - the place has a great vibe! Then when we met Ann there to discuss ... Read more our wedding, I found out just what an amazing place it is. Ann listened to what we wanted in a wedding - intimate, small, private, outside, and with amazing food - a celebration that would never be forgotten. She suggested a sunset wedding on the Kiva, with a private dinner on the restaurant patio next to the fireplace. Ann absolutely hit the ball out of the park! Following our first meeting, Ann arranged the cake (from a baker in Marfa), the flowers, and all the other details that wedding planners typically charge a fortune for. On wedding day, the Kiva wasn't blocked to outsiders, but we had the place completely to ourselves. Ann coordinated all the details on timing of the ceremony, arranged for champagne to be chilling on the patio for a post-vow toast, and made sure our dinner was spectacular. All our guests stayed in the historic hotel and my wife and I stayed in the carriage house. I can't say enough good things about The Gage. The wedding planning was perfect (and very reasonably priced relative to other places we considered), the staff were incredibly friendly, and the setting, with a beautiful historical hotel set in a part of the world that provides some of the best sunsets you'll ever see, was simply perfect. We've already booked our room in the carriage house for Valentine's Day next year - we'll be back every year to celebrate a wonderful union shared at The Gage.
