Since the horrific Memorial Day Flood in 2015, we are proud to have been able to host numerous meaningful events at the Wedding Deck on our glorious stretch of the Blanco River. The Old Glory Ranch Wedding Deck has been a sacred place to many for over the past 20 years.
Just days after the tragic flood we were only expecting to see a barren landscape pilled with rubble. With a glimmer of hope for our splendid Wedding Deck Tree we walked closely to the river.
Although our peaceful paradise was unrecognizable, we spotted a hopeful site. Some Cypress branches were being pounded by the still raging river. We just knew it was the top of our “Giving Tree.” Feeling the emotional words of Frances Scott Keyes, “O say can you see, by the dawn’s early light, what so proudly we hail’d at the twilight’s last gleaming…..” The swaying branches were so gallantly streaming and ultimately gave proof that our tree was still there!
