About the Owners


Lauren and Jeff Whitehead opened The Santa Fe after touring the former train station and immediately seeing it's potential as a special events venue. Says Jeff, "I walked in and saw the shiplap walls, the hardwood floors and the amazing details you only see in historic buildings and immediately knew that it would be perfect for big celebrations."

Lauren and Jeff live in Dripping Springs, Texas, often called the wedding capital of Texas, with their German Shorthair Pointer, Sammy. Lauren owns and operates nearby Greenbird Fitness, offering yoga, pilates, and barre classes, and actively works in the nonprofit world with a focus on bringing Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) opportunities kids. Jeff is a singer/songwriter based out of Austin, Texas and brings a creative outlook to the couples projects. Together, they are proud to bring the Austin area a place to gather with family and friends for those milestone moments in life.
