About Our Wedding Destination

Wind Dancer Retreat Wedding Destination

Opening the doors of our unique Texas wedding destination in January 2016, Wind Dancer Retreat went from a dream to a reality. When we first decided that we wanted to build a wedding destination and event venue on our property, we envisioned a small rustic (chapel-esque) venue that could accommodate around 30 or so people. Well, one thing led to another and we became the proud owners of a 5000 sq. ft. venue, complete with a covered terrace, open deck, fully equipped kitchen, and capable of seating up to 300 guests! If you’re looking for a wedding destination location, come take a tour and book your wedding today. Let Wind Dancer Retreat make choosing a Texas wedding destination the easiest decision for you to make during the wedding planning process!

Michael & Rayne Zingelmann, Texas A&M University Classes of ’86 & ’90, consecutively, are the proud owners of this rural estate. Home to the famous Wind Dancer Racing, this property houses some the fastest and most winning horses in the south. Michael and Rayne made the decision to share this beautiful homestead for special events such as weddings, parties, and retreats. Located in Texas, just 15 minutes north of Bryan/College Station, this countryside oasis creates an atmosphere of solace and tranquility, the perfect setting as a wedding destination.

Wind Dancer Retreat offers unique country sophistication for special events, corporate retreats, private parties and weddings and more. Our event venue offers two unique cottages that can be rented as part of your event or as a cozy getaway and a beautiful swimming pool ideal for family reunions or birthday parties.

Otter and Bella

Otter and Bella

We can’t call ourselves a pet-friendly venue without telling you a little bit about our favorite pups. Otter and Bella are the unofficial mascots of Wind Dancer Retreat. Often, the first question a bride asks is, “Where are the dogs that I saw on the website?” Bella’s little legs usually don’t take her far from the house, and even so, she’ll be exhausted for the rest of the day. Otter loves to give hugs and LOVES attention. Just try to pet Bella without Otter making his way in-between! If you ever need a flower girl or a ring bearer last minute, Otter and Bella would be happy to help you out. Call us today to book a tour at WDR. Otter and Bella would be happy to lead the way!
