A Special Day of Site Tours

Since you've heard from us last, we've been busy spreading the word far and wide about our brand new Texas Hill Country wedding venue! With the engagement season just around the corner (Thanksgiving to Valentines), we welcomed wedding and event planners and photographers to The Cedars Ranch for a special day of site tours, introducing wedding professionals from Austin, San Antonio and the Texas Hill Country to our unique new venue. 

Designed and coordinated by Kimberley Bentley, with Silver Thistle Weddings + Events, our special day of site tours also included a wedding styled shoot, which made the event really dynamic and super fun! 

It was a little chilly on the day, but with our gorgeous new custom-made clear wall and door panels from Austin Awning, we were able to keep everyone warm in our great hall (you can see the new panels in the photo below). It was also a great excuse to serve our guests some yummy hot apple cider!

Our styled shoot photographer for the day was the wonderful Amy Gawlik, Al Gawlik Photography. While we don't have the official images from our special event yet (keep an eye out for future blog posts and on our social media), we do have some behind-the-scenes pictures to share.

Meet Our Vendors!

A huge thank you to our amazing team of vendors who made this a day to remember.

"This unique venue is unlike any other in our area due to its sustainable core values. Watching The Cedars Ranch evolve has been invigorating due to the uniqueness of its architecture and wellness concept. Bill and Marilyn's vision of modernism that is organic and natural is such a refreshing vibe and one that our company thrives on." - Kimberley Bentley, Silver Thistle Weddings + Events

A special thank you to our fabulous styled shoot models, Caitlin Watkins and Max Daniller-Varghese. They are super adorable newlyweds who graciously agreed to be part of our day.

The theme of our tour and styled shoot was natural and organic, with a fun boho feel. It worked a treat!

Meet Our Guests!

We really enjoyed meeting our planner and photographer guests, and showing them around. We got so much positive feedback, with some touting The Cedars Ranch as "the hottest new venue in the hill country right now!" That definitely makes us happy to hear!

We also loved seeing our venue through their eyes. Here's some of our favorites from planners and photographers who visited and took photos during their tour.

"Congrats to The Cedars Ranch on the opening of their new venue! Eco friendly, sustainable, beautiful! Can't wait to have an event in your space! Genius idea to have a photo shoot during the open house!" - Julia Mechler, Native Roots Events

I have been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any
interesting article like yours. It's pretty
worth enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers
made good content as you did, the net will be much
more useful than ever before.

Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you're
using? I'm planning to start my own blog in the near future but
I'm having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs
and I'm looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic
but I had to ask!

Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up
and let you know a few of the images aren't loading correctly.
I'm not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
I've tried it in two different internet browsers and
both show the same results.
