When you plan a wedding, you want a venue that will photograph well. BlissWood is the absolute ideal setting for your outdoor wedding photography. We have a wonderful variety of locations and different types of scenery on our ranch. Here, brides can choose from intimate gardens, romantic vineyards, and lush meadows.

We have a long tradition of weddings here at BlissWood. The Enchanted Lake and gazebo were designed with a wedding in mind. We believe it was all built in preparation for the wedding of a previous owner’s daughter. And today, it’s one of our most popular wedding locations. Many couples choose to say their vows at the gazebo on the Enchanted Lake.

We also do weddings in our gardens and at our nearby tropical Oasis. There’s a lot that goes into planning a wedding, and there’s a lot to consider when choosing a venue. Our owner, Carol Davis, was recently featured in an online article about turning your property into a wedding venue. Check it out if you’re interested in all that goes into hosting a wedding!

Dream Small! Plan an Intimate Wedding in Texas

Monday, December 16th, 2013

Getting married is a big deal, but that doesn’t mean you need to have a big guest list! At BlissWood, we’ve done weddings of all sizes, from elopements to 200-person events. But small weddings are a trend on the rise. If you’re planning an intimate wedding in Texas, we’d love to show you around.

Our scenic ranch in Cat Spring, Texas is just right for a small, rustic wedding. Your big day can be stressful, but it’s easy to relax when you’re surrounded by nature in a quiet country setting. And isn’t that one of the perks of having a small wedding? You can relax. A lot of brides and grooms get jittery just thinking about standing up in front of hundreds of guests. If you decide to have an intimate wedding at BlissWood, you can feel at ease, surrounded only by your closest friends and family. It doesn’t have to be a huge production!

We recently hosted a small wedding for a lovely Houston couple. It was a picture perfect day and everyone had a wonderful time. Another advantage of having an intimate wedding is that you’re really able to spend quality time with your guests. It’s especially nice for people who’ve traveled a great distance to share your special day!

BlissWood has so much to offer. You can say your vows at the gazebo on the Enchanted Lake, in an intimate garden setting, or in our ‘tropical’ Oasis. Plus, we’ve got a great place for you to spend your first night as a married couple. At BlissWood, newlyweds can enjoy star gazing, sitting by the fireplace, and soaking in a Jacuzzi tub.

A Texas Trapshooting Bachelor Party

Wednesday, December 4th, 2013

You might not know it from watching movies, but a bachelor party doesn’t require a crazy trip to the Vegas Strip or Atlantic City. If you’re a groom-to-be, you’re probably looking forward to this rite of passage almost as much as the wedding itself. But maybe the casino scene just isn’t your thing. Perhaps you’d rather just spend some quality time hanging with the guys and enjoying the great outdoors. If you’re looking for some different bachelor party ideas in Texas, you can always plan a trip to BlissWood Bed and Breakfast Ranch.

You and your buddies can do something totally unique on our Texas ranch. Our last group of guys had a ton of fun trapshooting, and it was definitely a bachelor party to remember. Another advantage to a BlissWood getaway is that you can make sure to capture some memories. If you’re interested, you can book a photo session with our resident Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer, Skeeter Hagler.

bachelor party ideas in Texas

We offer plenty of onsite activities in addition to trapshooting. Depending on what the groom-to-be enjoys, you can choose from a wide variety of other activities that will make your BlissWood trip the adventure of a lifetime. We also have archery, horseback riding, golf, and catch and release bass fishing on the ranch. And once you’ve worked up an appetite, you can grab a nice dinner at Carol’s at Cat Spring Restaurant. Carol’s restaurant is a great place to enjoy a steak in a Texas lodge atmosphere.

But you can customize your visit with as much or as little as you want. Your BlissWood bachelor party can be as action-packed or as lazy as you like.

So get started planning your trip and call us today at 713-301-3225. It’s a great way to thank your friends for all their help as you prepare for your big day.

unique Texas wedding venue

Just last week, we made another bride’s wedding dreams come true. She told us how happy she was with the service at BlissWood: “Carol was very helpful from the beginning, allowing us to come tour the ranch from out of state on short notice. She and her assistant were also both very helpful to our families who were traveling quite long distances to the ranch for the weekend.”

This couple decided to get married in the Oak Tree Grove. After a beautiful ceremony and a session with our resident Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer, Skeeter Hagler, they walked away with lots of wonderful pictures. They also spent 2 nights in the Enchanted Cabin after the wedding, which was just the quiet and quaint getaway they were looking for.  The newlyweds, and their families, all agreed it was “the most perfect weekend.”
