"Gina, What wonderful pictures!
Sloan and I have just returned from Fiji and have not really had
a chance to see pics or talk with family and friends about the wedding
yet. This was so exciting to go through these and see some of the
details of the wedding that I never had a chance that night to see
- the flowers are AMAZING!!! Wow, ya'll did an incredible job and
I absolutely loved my bridal bouquet!! The entire experience was
so very special and I cannot thank you and the staff enough for
all you did to put on such a beautiful and unforgettable wedding.
I will def be sharing these photos with family and friends, so thank
you again for sending!!!"
Elizabeth Bowman-Hildebrand (Bride 5/5/12 - Ceremony and
"Carey, Gina and Suzanne, The wedding was fabulous! The bouquets
were stunning! The bridesmaid's bouquets were so beautiful with
the berries, succulents, roses and just the right amount of wheat.
Elizabeth loved her gorgeous bridal bouquet. I did not even have
time to see the flowers before the wedding began because I was hangin'
in the bridal room watching her get dressed. But when the wedding
was over and again when I came to pick up the flag I cruised by
them and they were all beautiful. In fact, I think the bouquets
were the prettiest I have ever seen and mind you I have been to
dozens of weddings, looked through many a wedding magazine and searched
the Internet. They were stunning beyond description and they blended
with the bright green dresses just fine. The size, the colors, the
flowers and the arranging were magnificent. Even the way the antique
lace hung was perfect. I must say the succulents were a distinctive
Texas addition and we loved the dusty greens. They should really
be in a magazine because they are unique and tasteful. We ended
up loving the bright green in the pictures and the girls appreciated
the short and strapless ....nice and cool and comfy they said.
This was really the first time I actually saw some of the outdoor
flowers and thank you Suzanne and staff for sending the pictures
today. The succulents were so classy! The avocado bar looked like
so much fun. The entire evening seemed like it lasted 45 minutes...wish
I could go back in time and go as a guest.
All of the arrangements were gorgeous! All of the details came together
for one beautiful evening. FYI, the cake was by Classic Cakes by
Lori and it was delicious. Again thank you, thank you.
The band worked out fine and the bridal party seemed to enjoy the
music and had a blast dancing. There was such an excitement in the
air starting with the first party Thursday night and it just kept
getting better and better. There were four things I insisted on
- the carriage, the donkey's, Oh Happy Day exit song and the avocado
bar. Although I did not have time to eat an avocado they sure did
look good ....the carriage ride, the donkey's were the best!
Although it was warm, a great breeze arrived as the guests left
the chapel...perfect timing. It was the brightest moon in 4 years
on 5-5-2012...and the rain held off until the bride and groom arrived
in their honeymoon house which was all glass and they watched God's
magnificent lightning show.
Everyone raved about the whole evening. I have some great pics I
will send you but I still have not unpacked! We are grateful for
each one of you and may the Lord continue to bless you and your
loved ones this year."
Oh Happy Day! Debbie Bowman (Mother of the Bride Elizabeth
Bowman/Sloan Hildebrand 5/5/12 Ceremony & Reception)
"My husband and
I recently got married at OGR on March 31st, 2012. The OGR staff
was more than accommodating in helping us to plan the perfect day
from afar. We had a fairly short engagement (6 months) and lived
out of town; however, we never once felt stressed because the OGR
team goes above and beyond to take care of everything, every little
detail. They helped with all vendor referrals and contracts (everything
from hair/makeup to transportation), provided their own incredibly
amazing floral team as well as the most talented and lovely wedding
coordinators, Gina and Carey.
Looking back now, I would not change one thing about our ceremony
or reception. The venue was stunning yet casual and the day went
on without a hitch (at least to our knowledge!). Our friends and
family are STILL talking about how fun, unique and beautiful our
wedding was. What more could a girl ask for?! OGR is everything
we dreamed of and then some. I would highly recommend this lovely
Texas Hill Country venue."
Lauren Godsey-Hickey (Bride 3/31/12)
"I am an "older"
bride (40+) and had pretty specific ideas about what I wanted my
wedding day to be like. I wanted a venue that was half way between
Austin and San Antonio and looked at dozens of wedding venues along
the IH 35 corridor. The minute I drove up to OGR, I knew this was
the place I wanted to get married. From the chapel to the patio/pavilion
and the beautiful hill country setting, it was simply perfect. I
had a wonderful team made up of Gina (Marketing/Artistic Director),
Carey (BASH Events) and Suzanne, the owner. They made sure every
last detail was perfect and they didn't push anything on us that
we didn't want. They were available to answer questions and always
responded in a timely manner. On the day of my wedding, everything
was perfect! The flowers were gorgeous and everything I asked for
was taken care of. Carey, Gina and the OGR staff were always near
to take care of any request or answer any question. I can't tell
you what a relief it was to show up on my wedding day and simply
enjoy every minute of it - I left the rest up to OGR and they executed
a beautiful wedding. Everyone I've talked to said it was one of
the most beautiful and fun weddings they've attended, and I agree
with them. Old Glory Ranch will forever be a part of one of the
best days of my life."
Rachel Wilson-Duer (Bride - Ceremony & Reception 3/3/12)
"When my son
called to say "she said yes" we were so excited we could
hardly contain ourselves. Then when he said they wanted to be married
in Texas, I held my breath! As the mother of two boys I didn't think
I would be planning a wedding, but with the bride and groom and
her parents living out of state I was asked to help! So, with a
list of venues, a friend and I started the visits. It was an easy
choice! Hands down, there was nothing that compared to Old Glory
Ranch! EXCELLENCE...from the moment we drove through the gate to
the night we drove away after the wedding. The venue is perfection.
So many of the places we had visited throughout Austin and the Hill
Country looked great online but when we would get there we would
see how poorly maintained they were. Not so with Old Glory Ranch.
The decor, the buildings, and the grounds are maintained with great
perfection. Suzanne did an amazing job with the design package creating
the country Christmas look the bride had dreamed of, complete with
twinkling lights, candles, berries and greenery. The list of suggested
vendors and their recommendations were superb. Carey helped us find
an incredible band that people are still talking about, pointed
me in the right direction for a vendor that helped us choose invitations
with the OGR flavor and people raved about the food and the way
it was displayed and served by a caterer they highly recommended.
At the last minute we decided to use a videographer, and Gina made
that happen! We were made to feel like royalty on the day of the
wedding. Every detail was taken care! They use headsets to make
sure everyone knows what is going on and it makes for a perfect
wedding! On cue, the violinist stopped, the bells rang and the bride
entered. I tear up thinking about it even now. When I say everything
is taken care of for you, I mean EVERYTHING! Carey even made a plate
of food for me when she noticed I had not had a chance to eat (
too busy visiting). When the evening was over we were handed the
keys to our car and everything we had brought there, along with
the left over cake, a plate of food for my husband and I, and the
left over alcohol was packed in there for us. My son and his bride
left in their limo; Carey had made sure their luggage had been placed
in the trunk, and plates of food and a bottle of champagne were
inside for them to enjoy when they got to the hotel. That's EXCELLENCE!
I could say so much more but I think you would get tired of reading
the word excellence! I am forever grateful to Carey, Gina, Karen,
and Suzanne. They were always there for us; answering phone calls
and numerous emails, giving great advice, suggestions and in general
calming me down in moments of panic or confusion. They made a dream
come true for my son and his bride!"
Deborah Berg (Mother of the Groom – Molly & Stephen
"Suzanne, I know
I thanked you Saturday night but I could not let everything go without
saying it in writing. You, and your staff, are hands down - AMAZING!
I know we "pushed the envelope" with our design requests
but you guys put your heart and hands into making them a reality.
I can hardly wait to relive everything through the photos and the
videos. Then I can really take in all the beauty and creativity
OGR put on display. Honestly, I cannot think of anything I would
have changed. I know when Amory gets back from Montana and we get
to share our memories of last Saturday night together, she and I
will once more marvel at the brilliance and efficiency of OGR!"
Mona Snelson (mother of the bride Snelson/Skaggs 10/22/11)
"PS. I guess the only drop of sadness in this whole thing is
that I am really going to miss you guys and OGR!!"
& Carey, I wanted to take a minute to tell all of you how professional
and caring all of you were for Maggie and Lee’s wedding on
October 1, 2011.
Suzanne, you and your staff never hesitated to answer questions
and seemed to always be right where they were needed most! Thank
you for making their wedding the most “magical” day
of my life. Maggie is my pride and joy – such a good hard-working
girl…she and Lee both deserved this day!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making Maggie’s
wedding the best day of her life. It was “magical!”
Sincerely, Gina Cottom (mother of the bride Cottom/Donovan
you isn’t a big enough work to express my appreciation for
all you and your staff did at OGR for Paige and Joey’s wedding.
I am still getting rave reviews from family and friends about the
From the carriage ride to the stunning flowers and beautifully decorated
chapel, to the delicious food, it was all perfect!! It was such
a well orchestrated event. All our planning, preparation and hard
work paid off.
Thanks again for making Paige & Joey’s wedding such a
special event. It was the day they had dreamed of made possibly
by you and your wonderful venue. Thanks also for the CD of the wedding
pictures. We are impatiently awaiting the photographs from Aves!
Hope you are surviving the August heat of Texas. I snuck away to
Montana where I am enjoying cooler temps and mountain scenery.
Thanks again for everything! We had so much fun!”
Fondly, Cynthia Bryant (mother of the bride Bryant/Bryce
"Gina, Life has
settled down now that the wedding is over and I can’t overlook
a huge thank you to you and Old Glory Ranch! All our planning, preparation,
and hard work paid off as the wedding was everything Paige and Joey
dreamed about – and more. It was perfect!! You and your staff
were a pleasure to work with and it was a well orchestrated event.
I am still getting rave reviews about the venue itself as well as
the stunning flowers, the delicious food, and the overall wonderful
wedding. Thanks for making Paige’s wedding such a special
event and a memorable day, not soon to be forgotten! Thanks also
for the DVD of the wedding day photos. We can’t wait to get
ours back from Aves!
Hope you are enjoying some down time in August. I am up north in
Montana escaping the Texas Heat! Guess I’ll see you in November
at the Dunn wedding.
Thanks again for everything!”
Love, Cynthia Bryant (mother of the bride Bryant/Bryce 7/16/11)
"Gina & Carey,
this is a VERY belated thank you for all of your help with Susan's
wedding. I am in New Mexico recouping from all the festivities (and
helping put a roof on our cabin!), and have just not taken the time
to sit down and email the two of you.
I can't thank you enough for everything you did for us. The wedding
was beautiful, the flowers were gorgeous, all went off without a
hitch. What a wonderful evening the two of you provided for all
of us. I heard many comments about how great everything was, how
beautiful the venue, etc., etc. We certainly could not have done
it without you!
I am still ready to go have a beer or margarita with the two of
you, but not until I get back in town! Please keep in touch and
thank you again for all of your kindnesses, compassion, understanding
Cary Tobleman (Cardwell/Sensat - Wedding & Reception
"A big thank you for the photo CDs from Erin and Marcus's wedding.
We really enjoyed looking at the lovely floral arrangements without
the drama of the wedding day. I don't think I can pick a favorite.
The alter arrangement was so gorgeous with the orchids, the baptismal
font was spectacular, the bright flowers for the bridesmaids were
beautiful with their dresses and Erin's bouquet was absolutely elegant.
Thank you also for the candid shots of Erin and her Dad and Erin
and Marcus after the ceremony. One of my friends said she heard
Erin say as she walked back down the aisle that it was perfect,
and I must say that is exactly how we all feel. My best friend,
who does many events in Austin including weddings, commented on
the beautiful details and the wonderful pieces that were used for
serving and for flowers. Your staff was amazing; we all felt so
indulged by such kind professional people. There was absolutely
nothing that went wrong.
Please use us as references at any time.
Pat Tracy, mother of the bride (6-18-11 Wedding & Reception)
"What a wonderful wedding we had at Old
Glory Ranch! When Katie said afterwards that "everything was
perfect just liked I dreamed," I knew she was so happy!! Others
have used the words "fairy tale wedding!"
Suzanne, I had no idea your place would be so beautiful especially
at night at the patio with the lights, oak trees, flowers and open
fields. It was beyond my expectations. Even though we had been planning
this for months, I never had a feel of how it would look in the
I don't want to do this again, but I wish I could go back to that
night and relive it and enjoy the moment more. I was overwhelmed
and didn't know where to start talking to my guests! Strange feeling.
Katie was beautiful and her ceremony was so special, unique and
She planned 100% of it and did such a great job. The wedding deck
was the most perfect setting. It took your breath away--even with
Many of my guests complemented your staff. They were always there,
so many of them and very helpful. Once again, I had no expectation
of such fine service.
Best money spent: the carriage!!! That was worth every penny to
see bride and groom show up at cocktail hour.
Katie said Carey was wonderful and very attentive. And Gina was
great at holding my hand through this process. I have no idea if
our tip was too little or standard since I didn't know how to judge
these things. I hope it met expectations.
Katie and Billy just got back from Belize and they ran into someone
that knows you. Small world!
I am so thrilled you took pre-wedding photos of the flowers and
The first question Katie asked, " did anyone take photos of
our things in the patio?" It was a whirlwind. We will look
forward to your CD. Very nice gift.
Sue McFarland (mother of the bride 5/7/11)
p.s. Loved the caterer Amy with Kurant Events! The food was great.
Lots if compliments!
Appetizers were perfect. That asparagus was the best:).
" Suzanne, We just got back from the
honeymoon, but I checked out all the pictures you posted on Facebook
and I LOVE THEM! Also, thank you and your staff for everything...
the wedding was PERFECT. I literally had the best night of my entire
life. I loved every single second of the entire day from beginning
to end. I felt like the whole night was one big fairy tale. When
I heard "Last Call" I almost started crying because I
didn't want it to be over. Everyone at Old Glory was awesome and
it could not have been a better night. Y'all are the best! Also,
I hope that Todd's party was a blast... judging by the pictures
it looked incredible! Thanks again for everything."

"Suzanne & Gina ~ Thank you both
so much for making our wedding a reality at Old Glory Ranch! Plus,
thanks for all of your help, assistance and patience!

"Suzanne ~ Donnie and I wantd you to
know how much we appreciated everything at Old Glory! Ellen and
Blake’s wedding could not have been more special. Kathy has
shared the photos you took and I have showed them to everyone. We
have received so many nice cards and emails also. You have such
a special place and we will have memories of it for years to come.
Thank you and your staff for everything. A special thanks to Liz.

"Hello Liz. Wow, what a wonderful time
we had last night. You and the staff were amazing. The wedding and
the whole event was perfect. Thank you for making Michelle's wedding
so incredible. Kim was amazing. She did an excellent job keeping
us on schedule and keeping us informed. All the guest were so impressed
with the whole event. We could not have asked for a better evening,
the food, the music was perfect. I could not have asked for a better
service, Gary is amazing. We were very blessed to have him perform
Thanks again for everything. The fire pits were a big hit."
"Hello Kim. Wow! What a great evening we had. Michelle's wedding
was perfect in every way; the food, the decorations, the environment,
the music, the service. We were so blessed to have Gary perform
the ceremony. He was amazing. A big thanks to you for all your help.
You did an incredible job. You allowed me to enjoy my daughter’s
wedding. I had so much fun. Thank you for wonderful memories that
I will always cherish. Everyone who came to the wedding were so
impressed with all the staff and the whole environment. You all
have created something truly wonderful. Thank you again for all
your planning and work."
"Gina, Just a short note, cause I'm on
Katie and Adam's Wedding at Old Glory Ranch was truly magical.
The facilities are gorgeous and the staff was professional, knowledgeable,
and "invisible.” "Invisble" except when you
needed us and we needed ya'll...then you were right there.
...And then you guys just let us celebrate. Thanks again"
Richard Bergfeld (Father of the Bride - Bergfeld/Sangle
"Liz & Suzanne,
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!
EVERYTHING was just beautiful! I can’t tell you how many people
commented on the venue and the gorgeous flowers throughout the evening.
Everyone loved the location and everything about the evening. You
two ladies are AWESOME and we appreciate everything it took to bring
Sarah and Brian’s special day together as beautifully as you
I want to commend you and your staff on the very well orchestrated
evening! You all went above and beyond and we greatly appreciate
all the effort that was expended so very much!
Thank you both again. It was fabulous!"

& reception, 7/24/10)
"Suzanne, Amidst the pile of wedding gifts I'm still
receiving and trying to organize for Jessica's move to Italy next
month, my heart and mind are still in Wimberley and at Old Glory
Ranch. To say that you and your staff made Jessica and Taylor's
day special would be an understatement. In so many ways, you've
made it much more than that. For a family that hasn't been together
in over 15 years, your ranch, your chapel, your staff, made this
day not only a fairy tale union between a young couple but one of
a family's reunion. For this, you'll forever remain a constant memory
that what matters most when planning a wedding isn't how much you
spend....it's how much you make it meaningful.
I could fill a book with everything that had significant meaning
regarding Jessica and Taylor's wedding at Old Glory Ranch.
I never could have planned this in three months without the enormous
help of you and your staff. You made it seem virtually effortless.
It's been the most fun I've had in years!! Everyone was more than
gracious and helpful whenever I needed guidance. I've heard from
many guests and the word is this was a wedding like none other.
They simply loved it! Even the bands loved being there!! I highly
recommend them both!
I regret not remembering to have you, Gina and Carey sign the "Texas
Hill Country" guest book. Maybe one day Jessica will get back
there with it. Again, thank you so much for making my "little
girl's" dream wedding come true. It was simply beautiful, simply
elegant, simply perfect.
I'd be more than pleased to have you include my letter on your website!
I wish I would have written more!! I forgot to tell you how beautiful
the flowers were, and that I noticed you added an extra, gorgeous
container of them on the patio! The chapel and patio looked exquisite
with all your arrangements!! So elegant!!
If there's ever a need for a Houston liaison to assist brides from
H Town, I'd be honored if you'd consider me. I spent many years
as an MD Anderson faculty spouse member planning some of their yearly
galas and had an interior design buisness for over 30 years. I loved
planning Jessica's wedding at Old Glory Ranch and would welcome
the opportunity to work with you and your staff again.
God bless you all!"
Kristin Tveit-Sawaya (Lacy/Franklin Wedding & Reception
"Well, I have a question! Have you ever, ever, ever seen a
happier bride?I know I cannot begin to express my gratitude to both
of you and to your staff for Sarah’s and Josh’s beautiful
wedding! Yes, there was shuffling; yes, there were weather concerns;
yes, there were all those beautiful flowers going unnoticed (and
I’m most sorry about that for all of you because you worked
sooo hard to make them so beautiful) but, in the end it was everything
Dan and I had hoped it would be for them and everything Sarah had
ever hoped for. And, yes, my marriage survived!Suzanne, that altar
was spectacular. Those orchids and the way you designed them were
breathtaking. The baptismal font was stunning and it was so thoughtful
and generous of you to surprise us with it. Thank you. Thank you
for the romantic chandeliers lighting those absolutely magnificent
trees. The music was wonderful. Jill Dally is so easy to work with
and did everything to make Sarah’s musical wishes come true.
I kept wanting the night to slow down so I would get the chance
to see all those touches that we planned and that I knew you would
make so special. I almost missed the “heritage” table.
I kept trying to stop and take snapshots in my mind’s eye
of each charming vignette. Liz, (I really mean this.) thank you
for answering all my question; thank you for trying to keep us on
track in those meetings, thank you for following up on the details
all the time. THANK YOU FOR BRINGING THOSE BOXES TO THE GATE!!!
I felt so confident that it would all go well because you don’t
forget anything! You are SO good at what you do!
Old Glory Ranch is a truly special place. You have created an absolutely
beautiful venue. You all were an absolute joy to work with. You
were patient, professional, knowledgeable, constant, kind, creative
and so caring. Speaking of caring, I want you to know that Carey
was an absolute joy to work with. She was calming and she was EVERYWHERE!
She was either checking on me or checking on Sarah. Thank you for
Your staff (EVERY single one I met) was so upbeat and helpful in
every way I needed them to be. Your communication that night was
so well done. I couldn’t have wished for it to run more smoothly.
Whenever I had a request or I needed a question answered, someone
was right there on a headset finding the answer for me?
You all get to live and work in such a beautiful part of our great
state! Wimberley is precious and all of our guests had nothing but
wonderful comments about Old Glory and Wimberley. Most of them have
told Dan, Sarah, Josh and me that it may have been the most beautiful
wedding they had every attended. I think it was too! That’s
lovely to hear. It’s great advertising for you. But, the best
compliment of all was from our daughter who told us that it was
absolutely the best night of her life. For that, I love all of you."

"Dear Suzanne & Staff
Terry and I will never be able to thank all of you for making our
wedding day so very special – it was indeed a fairytale come
true! The weather, the music, the gorgeous flowers, and the wedding
deck , simply by virtue of its natural beauty setting along the
gently flowing rapids – what a synchrony of perfection! Arriving
to chiming bells in the beautiful white carriage pulled by Diamond
& Pearl – what more could any bride ask for? I waited
such a long time for my Prince Charming – thank you, with
all my heart, for making May 29, 2009 such a magical memory that
Terry and I will cherish forever & 'Longer'”.

“Kellye we are indeed basking in the
glow of an AMAZING, EXTRAORDINARY, PERFECT WEDDING !!!!!!!
Old Glory Ranch was absolutely magical. The Riverside setting is
breathtaking, the patio and chapel hall are both beautiful. All
of you awed us with the flower arrangements and decor -- everything
was exactly as we had hoped it would be. The carriage and horses
captivated everyone. The bride and groom and both families are elated
with true happiness.
Of course we realize that what pulled it all together into the cohesive
amazing event it was, was the Old Glory staff. You all were so coordinated,
professional, thoughtful, pleasant and helpful !!!! That enhanced
the joyful experience for all of us. Even many of our guests commented
on how wonderful you , Carey, and the rest of the staff were!
Elly, Michael and I will always remember your kindness, sweetness
and ever positive approach to all aspects of our planning this exceptional
wedding for our daughter. Elly and Chris came to us at the end of
the evening to thank us for their "perfect wedding". So
I am thanking you for enabling us to give our daughter and son-in-law
such a significant gift of love.
Best wishes to you and all the rest of the Old Glory group for many
more beautiful moments on the ranch, and a happy Holiday Season.
We will remember all of you at Old Glory Ranch in our Thanksgiving
prayers because we are truly grateful for having known you.”

outstanding venue. God blessed us with perfect weather throughout

was enormously appreciated throughout the process. Having a matter
of months to weave the Lucy and Michael's dream wedding into the
tapestry it became required someone with your grace, patience and
understanding. You are knowledgeable, efficient, dependable and
attentive to the wishes of your clients. We, and the guests, enjoyed
a celebration par excellence! Michael and Lucy will cherish the
memories of their wedding weekend into the future. Thank you again

Everything was beautiful, and it all ran smoothly. We had a great

" Kellye, Carey, Kim and Suzanne, A big
thank you for the amazing day you shared with Gunnar and me. First,
we want to tell you what a tremendous pleasure it was to work with
each and every one of you. We feel like we made some dear friends
during the planning process, and we are sad we won't be seeing you
on a regular basis now that the big day has happened. I feel so
fortunate to have had my wedding at Old Glory Ranch. The day couldn't
have gone smoother, and even three months after the wedding I am
still hearing compliments from friends, family and vendors. It is
amazing how well you account for each and every detail that goes
into such a big day. You did such a great job bringing life to some
of our ideas and the set up was impeccable. Thanks for being so
accessible during the planning process. Every time I called with
a question, someone was available and knew the answer on the spot.
We were also appreciative of your patience as my family made some
impromptu visits to Old Glory Ranch. Kellye, you were so welcoming,
generous and always made us feel at home. Suzanne, thank you so
much for the picture cd you sent us. Your pictures captured so many
details, and I love that I can revisit them over and over. Old Glory
Ranch is a well oiled machine with the most graceful personal touches.
Because of that, our wedding day was a dream come true for us and
we are forever grateful to you!"
Candice & Gunnar Heinisch (Laymance/Heinisch Wedding
& Reception, September 8, 2007)

one of the most wonderful nights of our lives. You and your crew
made a wonderful evening for us and we will remember it always.
Thank you personally for all of your help and ideas throughout the
whole engagement. It was always a pleasure meeting with you. I just
want you to know you helped make my dreams come true, and I feel
blessed that we found Old Glory Ranch. We had a great time and so
did all of our guests!"

Reception, May 19, 2007)

about it…the best wedding they have ever been to in their
lives. God bless you and the Old Glory Ranch staff!”

was so appreciated. Thanks again."
Emily & Toby Mills (Harper/Mills Wedding & Reception,
March 31, 2007)
"Kellye - We wanted to say thank you
for the terrific wedding celebration. Your team was on point and
attentive to the guests. The wedding was choreographed down to the
most minute detail. You are right about the guests not having a
clue about the behind the scenes activity. If it is done right,
which in this case it was flawless, the guests never see a ripple
in the water. Thank you for your leadership and kindness."
Pat Gooden (Gooden/Frazier Wedding & Reception, May
"We wanted to say thanks to you and your
staff of professionals for putting on an absolutely flawless wedding
at your venue. The feedback from our friends who traveled from Houston

Ranch was the best venue they had ever been to for a wedding. Not
to mention their comments that the staff and service was impeccable.
Suzanne, thanks for all of your personal attention to this celebration."

what you did to make the wedding a memorable one. Anjie is very
happy the way everything turned out. It was awesome."
Ive Patton (Patton/Motal wedding & Reception, October

to thank you and your staff in assisting Amy and Rich to have a
memorable moment. As consultants, we go to many hotels and reception
sites and work with many different teams. I can not tell you what
a pleasure it was to work with your team. You run a well organized
team and everything was done in the most professional manner. I
don't think Kim or Peggy know the word "no"! Every request
was greeted with a can do attitude. This was our first experience
at Old Glory and we look forward to working with you again. Thank
Jo Ann Woodward, Wedding Consultant @ Woodward & Schwartz
"Thanks to you and your staff for making

"What can I say? Even after a week,
we are still in awe of Old Glory Ranch, its' staff, and its' beauty.
Thank you all so much for making Amy and Zach's fairy tale wedding
come true. We received so many compliments from our
guests about the building, patio, oak grove, flowers, cake,donkeys and,
of course, the BBQ! All of your recommendations were
excellent. I know I speak for Amy when I say that especially beautiful
were the bridal party bouquets. And the wall tins in the chapel

so that we can cherish the memories over and over. Many sincere
thanks again to you and your entire staff. Best wishes,"

"I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful
dream wedding come true. From the first day I walked into the chapel,
I fell in love with Old Glory. I have looked forward to getting
married there ever since that day. The flowers were absolutely perfect.
I was taken back when I saw how beautiful everything looked. Suzanne,
you and your staff have been exceptional to work with. Kellye -
you always had a kind word for me when I was stressed, and you made
time for my ten thousand questions! I really appreciate all the
hard work you all put into making my wedding day so delightful.
I also loved the McCord Riverhouse. I know you will be seeing us
again and again in the years to come because we loved staying there
and playing in the river. Your ranch is so amazing, and I know you
must be so proud of all of your hard work. Thank you so much!"
Brandi Beeler, Wedding and Reception, June 18, 2005
"You have the nicest staff and everyone
at Old Glory Ranch is so professional. You all made my wedding day
a fairy tale. Kellye made us stress so much less, and she really
took care of everything. Grant and I were so happy with our wedding.
Our guests always refer to our wedding as the most fun. Old Glory
Ranch is the epitome of class. Suzanne, you have done a wonderful
job with a beautiful place. Thank you so much!"
Grant and Lindsay Randall, Wedding and Reception, July 17,

your help with our special day. There are only beautiful memories
which we will cherish forever."
Zach and Julie Burns, Wedding and Reception November 5,
"I want to let
you know that our Saturday evening at the Pavilion was fantastic.
Everyone had a great time. The view just blew everyone away. The
decorations were great, the ladies running the hayride were absolute
characters and Salt Lick took such good care of us. Jill Jones did
a fantastic job, as you indicated she would. Even the birthday cake
was great; I just kept cutting until it was gone. Finally, my highest
compliment to Trent. He was a true professional, handling all of
our needs quickly and efficiently. He is a wonderful human being
and it was a pleasure getting to know him. Once again, thanks for
creating such a wonderful ambience. My wife will truly remember
her birthday for years to come. Please thank your entire staff,
including Liz, for taking such good care of us. Hopefully you will
be there in 50 years when I start planning for Kate's 100th birthday
Ron Tilton, Birthday Party October 9, 2004
"Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
Words cannot express my appreciation for all of your hard work.
You made the entire wedding process extremely enjoyable. You took
care of everything and allowed me to be at peace. Everyone that
you recommended - we used - and it turned out perfect. The entire
day was perfect! We are still receiving compliments on how beautiful
the wedding was. I had 110% faith in OGR. I completely trusted every
one of you. I have never been so calm or confident, and your impeccable
attention to detail allowed me to be that way. I greatly appreciate
all of your hard work.
P.S. To the flower team...Martha Stewart who??? You guys are unbelievable.
Heather Hutto, Wedding and Reception October 16, 2004
"Thank you all so much for the great
job you did! The flowers were beautiful and the service from the
staff was exceptional. Carey and Andrea were on top of everything.
We had so many compliments from guests and family about Old Glory
Ranch and what a beautiful place it is and what a "movie set
" appearance you portray. Thanks again!"
Ingrid Kent, Wedding and Reception October 23, 2004
"We do not know where to begin to express
our thanks for the amazing wedding and reception you provided! As
we left the wedding (exhausted), I looked at Chris and asked "can
we do this again for our five year anniversary?". We had the
time of our lives! Every bride has an idea of her dream wedding
and hopes that everything will be perfect on her big day. I can
honestly say that even with my active imagination, I never would
have imagined my big day being as beautiful and as special as it
was! The flowers, the decorations, the food, the music, the carriage,
the atmosphere and most importantly the employees were all wonderful!
Everything was organized perfectly (which meant a lot to me) and
every request I made was met! The ceremony went exactly as planned
and the reception flowed flawlessly! It was a perfect dream! Everyone
at the wedding wanted to know how we found such an awesome place,
and commented on how it was the best wedding they had ever been
to! Well, I have to agree it was the best wedding I have ever been
to and still cannot believe it was ours! Suzanne, thank you so much
for allowing us to celebrate our special day at Old Glory Ranch.
Old Glory is something really unique and we feel so privileged to
hav been able to share our wedding with you. You have given us a
lifetime of memories! Andrea and Kellye, people always tell scary
stories about their wedding planner, but I lucked out again - you
two were perfect! Thank you for all of the hard work you put into
our wedding to make it everything we could have ever wanted and
treating all of our family and friends so kind! The wedding was
so organized and everything was gorgeous! You are both so sweet
and it was a pleasure to be able to work with you. Thank you again
for all of your hard work in making our wedding day so unbelievable!"
Chris and Lesley Blanks, Wedding and Reception, May 22,
"I want to let
you know how wonderful your staff is.You all provide the best service
I have ever seen. Thank you so much for making my daughter's wedding
feel so special. I cannot emphasize enough how beautiful the wedding
was. Liz and Kellye are remarkable people and they compliment you,
Suzanne, so well. I will highly recommend Old Glory Ranch to anyone
planning a wedding. Thanks again!"
Teresa Schumaker, Wedding and Reception, July 17, 2004
"Cullen and I want to express our gratitude
for how wonderfully our wedding went on June 12th. During the engagement,
the bride is always warned that something will go wrong during the
wedding - but nothing went wrong for us out at Old Glory. In fact,
everything was perfect! (As a devoted perfectionist, that is not
something I usually say.) The flowers were beautiful, everything
went according to plan, the donkeys were wonderful, and above all,
your staff's professionalism and kindness were top-notch. Not only
did I feel like royalty all evening, but my friends and family -
especially our grandparents - were treated so well. I can not write
enough wonderful things about Andrea, and Peggy did a great job
of keeping everything organized and everyone happy. Everyone remarked
about how calm I seemed, but it's only because of the dedication
and professionalism of the Old Glory staff. Because of the beautiful
setting and incredible organization of people and skills that you
and Liz have created, my wedding will be a memory that I will treasure.
Cullen had a wonderful time, and as we were leaving the wedding,
he said "All that planning was worth it - that was great. Enough
said! Thank you so much for everything. Old Glory will always have
a special place in my heart."
Christi Moeller, Wedding & Reception, June 12, 2004
"Recently I attended the Carson wedding
and reception at your facility and was left in awe. You have a truly
wonderful facility and I was so impressed by the genuine kindness
of all of your staff. At the reception, I loved how beautiful your
serving tables were and your food was fabulous. Again, I am truly
impressed with all that you have to offer and will recommend you
to all my friends looking for a place for weddings or other functions."
Connie Oliver (Carson Wedding & Reception June 26, 2004)
"I just want to say that you and your
staff are wonderful. I will always recommend Old Glory Ranch to
anyone who is having a wedding. I know the effort it takes to work
as a team, which your staff does in spades. I also know that as
the leader goes, so goes the organizatiojn, so all of this is a
tribute to you. My only complaint is that the wedding went by too
fast. I loved every minute of it!"
Marty (Wedding and Reception, May 1, 2004)
"Just a brief note to thank you for your
part in Kevin and Elizabeth's wedding. It was everything I had hoped

with all of you."

evening dinner and dancing at Old Glory Ranch such a delicious and
fun time for all! Suzanne, you are a marvel and everything and everyone
compromising Old Glory Ranch is the best! Your staff are obviously
very proud to be a part of your team. That was the best band we've
danced to in years."
Andy (River Oaks Breakfast Club, April 24, 2004)
"This card is not nearly big enough to
express my thanks for all that you did - my Hill Country fairy tale
came true! From the day we met, I knew it would be a fun and whirlwind
experience... if I had only known! You and your staff did so much
to make me feel special and so taken care of. And Laura's natural
good taste was the icing on the cake. Thanks again for giving me
a perfect day at the most beautiful Texas spot I know!"

the lovely album and photos that you sent to us. They will help
us remember all of the special moments of that night. We would definitely
love to come back and visit some time."
Erin and Joal Harper (Wedding and Reception, December 13,
"Can one express such delight on such
a small card? I cannot tell you how grateful I am for your flawless
presentation, exquisite planning and amazing staff. The compliments
we have received are to the point of overwhelming. Yet I still feel
like I just showed up and it was handled. I really cannot thank

that you did for us."

"It's hard to believe that over a month
has passed since we said our vows at Old Glory! Jason &
I wanted to let you know how wonderfully happy we were with how
everything turned out at the wedding. Everything you did from
the beginning made us feel comfortable and relaxed about the entire
weekend. You and your staff acted in a truly professional
manner, had everything well organized and made the suggestions we
needed. From your lovely home on the River to the best wedding
band of all times (The El Orbits), the whole weekend was a huge
success! Jason and I had the time of our lives and will cherish
the memories from Old Glory for the rest of our lives! Everyone
who attended the wedding has commented on how wonderful your place
is and how much fun they had. From the bottom of our hearts......Thank
you.......for your personal touches in making our time both the
happiest and most fun of our lives!"

loved it, and the food. I had friends say, “this is the
best wedding food ever!” All of the details were superb
– no worries for me or my family. Thank you for thinking
of EVERYTHING and for making our memorable event joyous. Thank
you too for the lovely & thoughtful photo album – you’re

Amy & Rob Lauer (Wedding and Reception, May 3, 2003)
"Thank you so much for all that you and
Laura and your great staff did to make our wedding weekend so enjoyable.
Kelly and I spent the next day flying to the BVI talking about how
much fun we had, how perfect everything was, how stress-free the
entire weekend was, and how we would be willing to do it all over
again in a heartbeat (which you don't usually hear from newlyweds!).
Your ranch is spectacular and every detail was perfect. Looking
over the pictures and remembering back to all of the special moments,
we are constantly reminded of what a great weekend it was. I hope
y'all took the opportunity Sunday to sit back, pat yourselves on
the collective back and revel in the spectacular event that you
pulled off. I have been singing, and will continue to sing, your
praises to anyone who mentions weddings or similar events. Our guests
have had similarly glowing comments. Thank you! Thank you also for
the photo album. It just adds to the great memories. I love the
picture of Grant and Laura. The River house was wonderful and only
added to the "stress-free" nature of the weekend. Thanks
Ryan Anderson (Wedding & Receoption, Spring 2003)
I just wanted to thank you for the beautiful album you sent us.
What a wonderful surprise! We will not have our pictures back
from the photographer for some time and it is so nice to have some
pictures to show off. Everything went so well for the wedding,
we were very pleased at how it turned out. I want to thank
all of you for making our wedding so wonderful. Patrick and
I are so glad we decided to have our wedding at your beautiful facility.
Take care and God bless!"

for sure. ... Well, thanks again for all the hard work that
you and your staff put in. They are all wonderful, gracious
people and it was a blast. ... "
Michelle (Wedding and reception Nov. 1, 2002)

for an amazing wedding! I cannot count the number of guests
who came up to us and said things like "How did you FIND this
place - it's perfect!" and "This is the best wedding
I've ever been to!", etc...... Your legendary attention to
detail really made the difference. I was simply blown away
(and you know how picky I am, so that means something!) You
are truly a group of "event artists"! It is funny
- everyone thought I would be freaking out about the chance for
rain, and I was like "Nope, they've got it under control out
there, I'm not worried." Which was nice. We never
worried about a thing. In fact, JP and I were having so much
fun at the reception that we had to be dragged away."
"We are still getting lots of great comments
about the wedding and Old Glory Ranch. Again, we appreciate
all your help and expertise. it was a wonderful experience
for all of us. Thanks again!"

hope for. It was simply wonderful. Our thanks to you and your staff
for all the effort you put into making this such a wonderful occasion.
We chose Old Glory Ranch because it is such a beautiful place but

Womack Wedding & Reception November 17, 2001
"Perfection is a word I don't use lightly.
But I felt that way as we drove from our Rehearsal Dinner at Old

we do another event we will certainly have it at Old Glory!!!!!!!!!
You and your staff are to be commended for tending to details and
know what it takes."
Norma Scott (Rehearsal Dinner October 12, 2001)

want to tell you how much we loved the wedding and how well we felt

and eventful wedding that no one will forget."

unflappability and your rich sense of how to entertain and create
atmosphere. I felt as though all of our loved ones were sort of
taken in by the warmth, beauty and echoes of many precious times
in your house down by the river and throughout the town."
Renee' Starnes (Honomu, Hawaii)
"Verlyn and Dave have received lots of notes
from guests who thought it was one of the best parties they had
attended in Wimberley. The setting was perfect, the decorations
beautiful, and the lights and candles created a magical effect when
the sun went down. Suzanne, you did a fabulous job pulling everything
together, and your attention to detail, friendly staff and willingness
to accommodate our last minute wishes, made the party absolutely
perfect. Thank you, thank you for a wonderful party. You have a
