Every couple deserves the wedding of their dreams. But not every couple wants to deal with planning a big, formal production. That’s why we’re happy to offer packages for a rustic elopement in Texas, here at BlissWood Bed and Breakfast Ranch.
We recently hosted an elopement for a very special couple with a very special meeting story that proves that love often finds you when you’re least expecting it. Unbeknownst to the groom, his mother was playing Cupid. She created a profile for her son on Match.com and found a handful of eligible mom-approved bachelorettes. When she told her son there were five women who wanted to meet him, she had to own up to her secret matchmaking. But as it turns out, one of those lovely ladies ended up being the one for him. Which goes to show, sometimes mother knows best!
It was love at first sight and when the groom saw the scenic grounds of BlissWood Bed and Breakfast Ranch, he knew it was the perfect place to have an intimate wedding ceremony.
But, in love and in weddings, you don’t always get what you plan for. Thanks to some cold and rainy weather, the ceremony was moved from the Gazebo at Enchanted Lake to Carol’s at Cat Spring Restaurant. And afterward, the happy (and dry) couple enjoyed a romantic dinner at the restaurant.
Fortunately, the sun appeared the following day and these newlyweds were able to get some gorgeous outdoor shots with our Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer, Skeeter Hagler. In the end, this couple got the wedding they had dreamed of, and the lovely photos to remember it. We’re so glad we could make their day special, and they can’t wait to plan a return visit to BlissWood.
