Garden Weddings 31 May 2014, 6:38 pm

Have you ever been to a “Garden Wedding”?  For a Garden Wedding, imagine a smaller number of people, outside among greenery, flowers around, birds, a few stringed instruments, a harp maybe, and a shaded grove or area among the trees. They’re not the standard type of wedding. Garden Weddings are usually smaller intimate events with […]

A Family of Families 7 Mar 2014, 3:10 pm

When the two soon-to-be-married people come to Red Corral Ranch, they arrive as each others’ fiance.  When they leave, they leave as a brand new family – a new family of 2 or maybe even more than 2.  We, at Red Corral Ranch, get to witness what I could easily think of as a creation […]

Been gone awhile, have we? Not Really. 20 Feb 2014, 3:22 am

My fingers are a bit stiff from not typing in a while, so bear with me. Meanwhile, the peacocks are now in full bloom, or rather they’ve got their giant feathers in after having lost them during the late summer and fall.  The “train” as their long feathers are called, is part of their mating […]

A Useful Suggestion 29 Sep 2012, 7:34 pm

When planning a wedding there are so many details to figure out.  I’m going to try to help with one suggestion regarding one of the details – bathrooms. When you have over 100 guests, you can expect a greater need for more bathrooms – to the point of maybe needing to rent extra portable bathroom […]

Back in the Saddle 29 Jul 2012, 4:08 pm

Red Corral Ranch has been serving our summer weddings at the same time that we’re getting ready for the coming fall wedding season.  And part of that service and getting ready is spiffing up the place – cleaning the cob webs, battening down the hatches, freshening the décor, tilting at the windmills,… you know – […]

Hill Country Weather 4 Jul 2012, 7:40 pm

I’m trying to think of what to blog about, and all I can think about is the weather – everywhere.  The Hill Country weather started off hot, hot, hot in June with temperatures over 100 degrees.  With the beginning of July, it is pretending to rain – more like crying “wolf”.  Going into July we […]

Sweet Photos You Just Want to Eat 27 May 2012, 11:08 pm

I get to see so many unique cake designs that have been created for the Brides and Grooms.  We had one cake design recently that was decidedly British.  In addition, in their decorations in the Big Red Barn, they had a British flag and a Texas flag.  Of course, the Texas flag was bigger because […]

The Old West Returns 27 May 2012, 8:08 pm

We had a great time with Dennis Moore of the Blanco Buggy Barn Museum, who brought his chuck wagon and served our guests some great fajitas.  At times, Dennis also provides a white horse drawn coach ride for some of our brides & grooms.  He and his crew provide a great western experience for people.  […]

2 Million Years of Romance 6 Apr 2012, 8:43 pm

I’ve been hearing wild turkeys in the area for several weeks now.  At the same time, I’ve been hearing the peacocks, too.  I don’t know that they’d call to each other – it could be just a coincidence.  Or it could be springtime when a young man’s fancy turns to love.  And both turkeys and […]

Hill Country Weddings – in a word – Magnificent 30 Mar 2012, 5:15 pm

The Hill Country is becoming one of the premier places in the United States to get married.  It’s not just because of the scenery – the beautiful trees covering the hillsides, or the rolling hills themselves.  It’s not just the rivers and wildlife that fill the area.  It’s also not just the expansive big skies […]
