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.

English Couple Travels to Texas for an Elopement

Wednesday, December 14th, 2011

Here at BlissWood Bed and Breakfast, visitors from all over the world stop by to enjoy a little Texas hospitality and to enjoy the peaceful ambiance of this 650-acre working ranch. But we’re always surprised at how many of our foreign guests come from the United Kingdom.

In fact, just this last August, a young couple from England stopped by the ranch for a Texas-style elopement ceremony in the Gazebo at Enchanted Lake. They weren’t looking for anything big, just a quiet, peaceful ceremony in the country that they could share with their one and only guest—the bride’s angelic little daughter, seen proudly displaying her mother’s bouquet in several of the pictures below.

The wedding party stayed in the Log Cabin, a quaint 1800s-style cedar cabin complete with a wood-burning fireplace and antiques from the 19th Century. See the Log Cabin in the video below.

After the ceremony, the newly weds drove off in true American fashion—kicking up a cloud of dust in a bright red Ford Mustang convertible, their little girl in the backseat with her mother’s bouquet of pink roses held high.

All of us at BlissWood would like to congratulate this young couple and wish them happiness and contentment in their lives together.

Here are a few pictures of the ceremony:

Texas Ranch Wedding in the Rain

Thursday, November 10th, 2011

Kassy Echols and Garrett Nemcik dreamed of the perfect Texas ranch wedding—a quiet, peaceful celebration of their love for one another shared under a big blue sky in the Texas Hill Country.

Unfortunately, the weather had different plans.

At exactly 4 p.m., when their Texas ranch wedding was scheduled to begin, rain started pouring from the grey clouds above. It was a bride’s worst nightmare, right?

You’d think so, but Kassy and Garrett took it all in stride. Despite the rain, the young couple had a beautiful ceremony and created memories that will last a lifetime. Their love for each other, and a few encouraging words from Carol, made it all work out in the end.

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.”
