There are as many ways to propose a marriage as there are future brides and grooms. Sometimes proposals are spontaneous, born out of the sudden realization that you must spend your life with the person before you. Often, however, at least one person plans a proposal, selecting the location and time with great care. I believe there is a certain amount of superstition around marriage proposals – the belief that if everything goes just right, she’ll say yes and the marriage will be blessed.
We were happy that recently Joe selected our Texas Guest Ranch as the place to pop the question to Amy. Amy obviously knew about their weekend together, but Joe kept the proposal a secret until the moment he asked for her hand. Joe made some arrangements to help set the proper mood: wrangler Carol guided the couple on a horseback ride to Enchanted Lake, where a bottle of champagne and chocolate-dipped strawberries were waiting for them in the Gazebo.
Our Texas Guest Ranch offers several special packages for folks with marriage on the mind. There is a package for guests of the ranch, and another for couples who want a special location for the proposal, but plan to return home at the end of the day.
We understand how important this moment is, and we strive to create a unique and private experience for everyone.
