Texas Hill Country Destination Wedding

Thursday, December 27th, 2012

Times have changed. There was a time, not so long ago, when couples rarely eloped and “destination weddings’’ were even more rare. Today,  “vacation weddings’’ are more and more common at BlissWood Bed and Breakfast, the perfect place for a Texas Hill Country destination wedding.

Photo by Skeeter Hagler

The couple pictured here got married at our guest ranch and event destination in the Texas Hill Country. But first – lucky them! — they got married in Jamaica.

BlissWood owner and hostess Carol Davis, who is also an ordained minister, shares this story: “They got married in Jamaica and decided that they wanted the real marriage to be in Texas.  So in keeping with the tropical scene, they chose BlissWood’s Oasis as the place to exchange their real vows with their real rings.  They had fake rings in Jamaica, and at the ceremony there, they actually forgot the fake rings!’’

BlissWood is a relaxing oasis on a 650-acre working ranch an hour west of Houston. Our accommodations include your choice of 10 houses and cabins on the ranch and six accommodations nearby at the Oasis.

The Oasis at BlissWood is lush and tropical – like Jamaica. The property is dotted with waterfalls and a pond, and the fragrance of orchids in bloom fills the air, depending on the time of year. The focal point of The Oasis is the Conservatory, which has a small, unheated pool.

The couple pictured stayed at The Oasis and said their vows at The Oasis. They have two sons roughly the same age who played a big part in the ceremony – and were given “promise rings’’ by their parents, to symbolize they would always be there for them.

The couple took advantage of BlissWood’s Intimate Wedding Package, for couples and up to six guests, and left all the planning and detail management to us. They also scheduled a photo shoot with Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Skeeter Hagler, BlissWood’s official photographer.

Carol Davis loves getting to know the couples who get married at BlissWood and sending them off to begin their new lives together.

Of this couple, she said: “They met when the bride was a patient of the groom, who is a chiropractor.  I said it must have been the shortest-lived doctor/patient relationship!  Both said yes — one visit!’’

Weddings big or small – and honeymoons – are our specialty at BlissWood. Visit our website or give us a call today at 713-301-3235 to start planning your special day.

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!

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.

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!

Texas Elopement Packages Found at Texas Hill Country Bed and Breakfast

Thursday, October 25th, 2012

Texas Elopement PackagesWeddings take considerable time and effort to plan, and many brides and grooms don’t want to say “I Do’’ to the stresses and pressures involved. Let’s elope, they say. Let’s avoid the hassles of planning a wedding.

To the rescue: all-inclusive Texas elopement packages offered and perfected at our Texas Hill Country Wedding Venue.

Our Romantic Texas Hill Country Bed and Breakfast is situated on a 650-acre working ranch an hour west of Houston in Cat Spring, Texas. With the Texas Hill Country as a backdrop, it’s a perfect setting for elopements, Texas weddings, or a simple romantic weekend getaway.

Richard and Joy didn’t have much time to plan a wedding. The bride is a nurse with the Air Force, serving in Afghanistan. BlissWood took care of all the elopement details: the flowers, the ceremony, the cake, the romantic accommodations.

The couple was married October 6, 2012, in an intimate ceremony at the Gazebo at Enchanted Lake. They exchanged their vows before BlissWood owner Carol Davis, who is also an ordained minister.

They enjoyed champagne, a gourmet dinner at Carol’s Restaurant, a Cat Spring Favorite, and a “tropical’’ mini honeymoon at Kit’s Bungalow, one of the options nearby at The Oasis at BlissWood. The Oasis is a tropical setting among the rolling prairies of Texas Hill Country. It truly is an oasis, with a waterfall, orchids in bloom and scenting the air and a small, unheated pool.

Skeeter Hagler, BlissWood’s official photographer and Pulitzer Prize Winner, captured many moments of the couple’s idyllic elopement, which they will have for the rest of their lives.

A wedding at BlissWood – from intimate elopements for two to elaborate events for dozens of guests – is an affair to remember.

Give us a call today at 713-301-3235 to start planning your elopement, wedding, or vow renewal event.

Celebrate your love with a wedding in Texas Hill Country

Monday, August 6th, 2012

We do a lot of weddings at BlissWood Bed and Breakfast Inn.

Love is always in the air here; our secluded location encourages it. And each couple married by BlissWood owner Carol Davis – who wears many hats, including ordained minister – has a special story to share.

This couple had a small ceremony with family and friends in the Gazebo at Enchanted Lake.

In the course of making arrangements, Carol learned the couple had dated in high school, gone their separate ways and made families.

When they were both single again, they saw each other at a baseball field where their children were playing. They rekindled their romance, and the rest, as they say, is history.

The couple’s children played a prominent role in their wedding at BlissWood, and the ceremony was followed by a cake and punch reception at Carol’s at Cat Spring Restaurant.
