You’ve no doubt attended a wedding and watched the bride, all done up in her finery, go through multiple changes of footwear: One for the church, another for the outdoor photo shoot, and yet another for dancing at the reception.

At Blisswood Bed and Breakfast at Lehmann Legacy Ranch in Texas Hill Country couples are invited to dream as big as Texas and create weddings, small and large, where they kick up their heels in cowboy boots–and the more broken in the boots are, the better!

This bride featured in a cowboy wedding at BlissWood met on Match.com and discovered they have much in common, including a mutual appreciation for cowboy and cowgirl lore and lifestyle. Before they met, each had dreamed of someday owning a ranch. So a cowboy wedding at our Texas Hill Country bed and breakfast ranch was a perfect idea!

Blisswood is located just an hour west of Houston, in Cat Spring, Texas. Our bed and breakfast inn and event destination is on a 650-acre working ranch. Cottages, cabins, and other guest accommodations are scattered throughout the property.

Weddings are one of our specialties, and our elopement package (for just the two of you; starting at $699, plus the cost of accommodations) lets you take the stress out of planning a wedding.

Our owner, Carol Davis, wears many hats, including ordained minister. Carol is a native Texan who grew up on a farm and ranch not far from Blisswood, owned by her family since 1875. She raises South American Paso Fino horses and Angus cattle at her Lehmann Legacy Ranch in Cat Spring.

Carol married this sweet cowgirl and cowboy, and she and her staff helped with all the little details – including these adorable cowboy hat ring holders.

She also arranged for a photo shoot with Blisswood’s resident photographer, Pulitzer Prize-winner Skeeter Hagler (for an extra $450). 

Our Texas Hill Country Wedding Venue offers both elopement and wedding packages, all of which can be tailored to meet your individual needs.

Now that they are husband and wife, the couple married here, who once dreamed — individually — of ranch life are looking for a ranch together!

Friday, November 9th, 2012

Lots of people come to our Texas Hill Country bed and breakfast for romantic weekend getaways in Texas – or with a little advance planning, to set the stage for a lifetime of love and happiness with one of our proposal packages at our Texas Hill Country Wedding Venue.

And then there are those who drive to the Hill Country for a romantic dinner at Carol’s, a favorite Cat Spring Restaurant – AND pop the question.

This couple got engaged recently at Carol’s Restaurant. They met on an online dating site for Christian singles in April and quickly fell in love, according to Blisswood owner Carol Davis.

He surprised her by suggesting dinner in the country, and then surprised her again with an engagement ring.

Carol’s Restaurant is the perfect place for those in the mood for love – and for a memorable meal. The restaurant’s interior is Texas country, with appointments in cedar and cowhide. Tables are topped with white linens and votive candles, giving the room a warm glow. The menu offers Texas favorites like steaks and chops, as well as sophisticated seafood and pasta offerings.

As for the couple who got engaged at Carol’s: He is a Harley rider and his fiancé is learning to share his enjoyment of motorcycle riding.

“Oh, what love makes you do,’’ says Blisswood’s Carol Davis.

The couple is considering having their wedding at Blisswood Bed and Breakfast.

With its multiple cabins and cottages, Blisswood Bed and Breakfast offers several accommodations in a relaxing oasis on a 650-acre working ranch in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. We offer several “proposal packages.’’

One, designed for guests staying with us, includes a picture-perfect setting — and much more: Couples enjoy a guided horseback ride to Enchanted Lake; chilled Champagne and souvenir glasses waiting in the Gazebo; chocolate-covered strawberries and fresh flowers. After she (or he) says yes, a golf cart will whisk you back to your lodging. Prices start at $239 per couple, plus the cost of accommodations.

Our proposal package for non-guests includes flowers; chocolate-covered strawberries; cheese and crackers; and Champagne with souvenir glasses. The fee is $199 per couple, and includes the use of the Gazebo at Enchanted Lake.

All you have to bring is the ring!

Weddings at the BlissWood Inn

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

The BlissWood Bed and Breakfast at Lehmann Ranch is known for its quiet, country charm.  Many people believe that this is the perfect environment for romance, and even weddings.  I am happy to report that our Texas bed and breakfast was recently witness to another wonderfully beautiful and romantic wedding ceremony!

A little bit of parental matchmaking magic started this couple on their way to a beautiful BlissWood wedding.  Having met the groom at church, the bride’s father decided to introduce his daughter to this charming fellow.  The couple fell in love, and became husband and wife at a very intimate Ranch ceremony with just two others in attendance.  For this couple, the serenity and ambiance provided at BlissWood was the perfect backdrop for their big day, and I am happy and honored to have been able to make their nuptials perfect.

You too can have the perfect wedding day at my Lehmann Legacy Ranch.  Whether it’s just the two of you, or if you’ve invited guests, the BlissWood can accommodate weddings of all sizes:  packages are available for intimate weddings up to 50 guests, or contact me to plan a larger event.    The 650-acre ranch offers a variety of wedding settings to make your day perfect.  Choose the Gazebo at Enchanted lake, celebrate under one of the gorgeous and sprawling old oak trees, choose to have a garden ceremony, let the waterfalls at the Oasis provide natural music during your vow-taking, choose your own perfect spot anywhere on the property during a daytrip visit.

While our newly-wedded couple did not become engaged here at BlissWood, many believe that the Ranch provides the perfect place to “pop the question.”  Treat your sweetheart to a BlissWood getaway to plan the perfect proposal.  Stroll the grounds and let the oaks witness the event, have a proposal picnic among the Blue Bonnets, or choose one of our Proposal Packages to set the scene perfectly.

Rehearsal dinners, bachelor and bachelorette party getaways, and receptions can also be accommodated right here on the property.  If you’ve chosen another wedding venue, you can come to Blisswood for a wide variety of off-site engagement and wedding photo settings.  Romance is welcome at BlissWood in any way we can help!  Check out the rest of the BlissWood website for more wedding and celebration ideas.
