A Rustic Elopement in Texas

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013

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 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.

A Review from Happy Newlyweds

Impeccable service and the peaceful country surroundings combine to make your honeymoon truly unforgettable.

But don’t take our word for it. Check out this review posted by a happy newlywed couple at

“We could not wish for a more magical place to spend our honeymoon than Blisswood.

Innkeeper Carol Davis bent over backwards to make our stay very enjoyable. The rest of the staff was courteous and helpful but respected our privacy.

Reservations and all special packages were arranged online and could not have been easier, making this destination a wonderful surprise for my new bride.

Our stay included accommodations in the rustic and charming Log Cabin. Everything was beautiful and inviting from the heart shaped rose petals on the bed to the champagne and strawberries in the 1930’s style refrigerator waiting for my beloved and me.

The next morning met us with country cats lounging on the front porch and busy hens scratching about. A brisk morning bicycle ride was ever so refreshing and ended with a wonderful gourmet picnic lunch waiting for us at the back at the cabin.

There was just enough chill in the air for us to enjoy the rustic fire place and my bride and I appreciated the relaxing spa message I arranged for us later that day.

The next morning we enjoyed viewing the gorgeous grounds while horseback riding and later we wondered to our hearts content on golf carts that were available to rent.

All of the various dwellings have their own appeal and charm. One can tell that Carol lovingly puts her own personal touch into each on-site retreat. Truly a peaceful and relaxing get-a-way… and romantic destination. We were sad to see our time visiting come to an end but so contented with the precious memories we will keep with us always.”
