Nearly 10 years ago Chris & Bethany Eppinger were standing at a north Austin wedding venue that was under construction and had just had a bad freeze. To say it was picture perfect was a stretch. Even with the bad weather and construction going on Chris & Bethany knew it was the place for them to get married and they trusted the owners vision of what it was all going to look like once the weather cleared up and the construction project was completed so they booked it. That same day while looking around at the venue, Chris looked at his future wife and said “I want to do this one day. How great would it be to be able to have a place like this where we could host weddings?” Not too long after Chris & Bethany were married they started making plans on how to achieve their dream on owning a venue.
Eight years ago Chris started C4 DJ Productions and the business took off more than he could have ever imagined. So much so, he and Bethany chose to reinvest and bring on other DJs to handle the double and triple bookings. After holding preferred DJ residencies at some of the most premier venues from Driftwood all the way up to Lakeway, Chris saw the need for professional & reliable staffing and bar tending services so he started Trust In Us Staffing. A year later, he started Keep It Classy Photo Booth.
In August of 2014, Chris and Bethany and their growing family made their 9 year old dream come true when they purchased Red Ridge in Smithville Texas. Both having backgrounds in customer service, they know to be successful their main focus should always be taking care of the clients. Not only do they bring a wealth of knowledge from their years of experience in the wedding industry, but they also have brought all of their other business ( DJ, photo booth, and staffing company ) in-house at Red Ridge and are able to offer wonderful package deals to their clients. Chris and Bethany’s vision has always been to make their clients feel ‘ at home’ . Red Ridge is family owned and operated and their clients truly do feel as though when they get married there, they become a part of the family.
