Some of our client reviews
We found the Old Glory Ranch by a recommendation from our Church Pastor and from the moment we entered the gates of the ranch, everything felt right. Karen met us at the door and took us on a tour of the venue and took the time to discuss their small wedding package to us. We wanted a small intimate wedding with limited people due to Covid-19. They had a plan in place which worked well for us. Karen walked us through everything they could provide and gave us names of vendors who they work with. This was a huge help since we live about 3 hours away. We met with Karen about 1 ½ months out from our wedding and went through every detail of how the day would go. On the day of rehearsal, Karen worked with our Pastor and his wife (the organist) to make sure they were comfortable and ready for our big day. The day of the wedding, Karen and her staff were on hand to make sure every detail was handled and the wedding was perfect and came off without any issues. The venue is beyond beautiful and the back patio area was perfect for an outdoor reception. The weather cooperated and we could not ask for a better day to have a wedding. If you are looking for a beautiful venue with a rustic décor, this is the place for you. The chapel is elegant and large enough for a crowd or small enough for a small intimate group. We will always remember this special place tucked away in the Hill Country around Wimberley.
Joy & David – Bride & Groom
Although I had attended weddings and numerous event at Old Glory, having my own wedding there was amazing. Second time around for us but was so easy as the staff took care of everything and made it so easy and took away any stress! Cannot thank them enough as we were in the midst of a pandemic and having our wedding go off without any concerns was glorious! PS all the kids loved the donkeys!
Old Glory is hands down the BEST WEDDING VENUE EVER!!!! From day one, my now husband and I were greeted with so much kindness, knowledge, and care during our tour. Throughout the planning process, Karen made sure we always had our questions answered, and we could feel that the staff at OGR truly and whole heartedly cared about us and our wedding day. She went above and beyond to provide suggestions, communication with vendors, and reassurance through the pandemic. Even on wedding day she helped calm me down by talking me through every step up until I took that first step down the aisle! Suzanne literally made my floral dreams come true! My ideas were a little different, yet she knew exactly what I was going for and executed it PERFECTLY. We even dipped into the river after our ceremony and got some pretty amazing photographs! We have received countless compliments about how gorgeous the venue, florals, and other decorations were, as well as it being “the best wedding they’ve ever been to”. Carey made sure our day ran flawlessly, I literally cannot think of one thing that didn’t go as planned. Old Glory has weddings down to a T. In the end, everyone at OGR (Karen, Carey, Wade, Suzanne, etc.!!!) felt like family, and they really made sure that our wedding day was the best day of our lives. THANK YOU I wish we could do it all again!
Taylor – Bride
Feeling so blessed to have found Old Glory Ranch for my daughter’s wedding. Everything was just perfect! Karen was an absolute gift during the planning process. Her knowledge was extremely impressive and she blended that with a lovely calm and compassionate way of being particularly as we navigated Covid-19 considerations. OGR’s floral group are pure artists, the most beautiful and trendy bouquets I have ever seen. Our guests called this venue magical and it surely is!
Catherine – Mother of Bride
Old Glory Ranch is the best wedding venue I could ever imagine. They successfully navigated us through the coronavirus pandemic to help us have the perfect wedding! Everyone at OGR was so wonderful, Karen Smith was the wedding/site coordinator. She constantly communicated with us and all our vendors, updating them every time there was a change and when we had to change our date due to COVID. She was simply amazing and a life saver, not to mention just nice to work with. Suzanne McCord is the owner and also great and very supportive, and only wants the perfect wedding for you. Suzanne did all our flowers and many of our guests commented on how beautiful they were and that it was the prettiest wedding they had ever been to. Carey Millington was our ‘day of’ coordinator and equally wonderful to work with and helped tremendously. The entire Old Glory Ranch staff was nice and a well-oiled machine, executing the entire day perfectly. Many guests also commented on the amazing service. And, at the end of our wonderful day, the staff packed up our cars and once the wedding was over, we just had to get in our cars and leave. We have seen and helped at other weddings when the parents, friends, and family pack and clean up for hours or days and we didn’t have to do anything – SO nice! We also had the horse-drawn carriage and miniature donkeys, both of which were a big hit! The entire experience was more than we could ever ask for and if we had to do it all over again, we would do everything exactly the same (without a pandemic hopefully!) Would DEFINITELY recommend Old Glory Ranch for anyone considering a wedding or event!!
Teresa – Mother of Bride
This place is incredible. We had a Catholic ceremony at the church in town, so we just did our reception at the ranch, but the transition was seamless and I have no doubt that doing the ceremony there too would have been just as beautiful. Also, I had to do our wedding planning from California (though I’ll admit I had PLENTY of help), but when Old Glory says they’ll take care of the details, they mean it. I did not worry about a single thing for the entire weekend. Every staff member was kind, competent, and fun to be around; the music, flowers, and decor were perfect; the flow of the evening was flawless; and the tips, connections, and advice they gave in choosing vendors made sure that we had everything we wanted while still being conscious of our budget. Plus, our guests are still telling us all the different things they enjoyed about the ranch over a month later. We had a truly perfect wedding, and I can’t recommend OGR highly enough.
Words can not describe how truly blessed I am to have picked such an amazing and beautiful venue. From the very first visit, I knew this was the place for me. Just the first sight driving up onto the ranch was a breathtaking experience.
Old Glory strives to help every bride make their wedding dreams a reality, and they truly have accomplished this. From the design meeting with Suzanne, to April and Carey helping organize and run the big day, this made a huge difference to making my wedding experience fun and enjoyable . For me and my entire family, I appreciate all that Old Glory has done to make our day a glorious and spectacular occasion. Every design, and every detail turned out better than I ever could have dreamed of. If you are looking for that rustic but elegant setting, this is hands down the place for you to be at. from the bottom of my heart I want to thank the entire staff for making my day a relaxing and enjoyable time for me to spend with my husband and family.
Old Glory will always have a special place in my heart. The wonderful memories from this glorious day will live with me for years to come, and it is all thanks to the astounding individuals that helped make this day come true.
Old Glory is where you go to have your dream wedding done perfectly. Not only is the venue breathtaking, the staff are the kindest people that truly care about making your day the best it can possibly be. Old Glory is a well oiled machine that made all my dreams about my wedding come true. My day was perfect and Old Glory was a huge part in making that happen. I highly recommend Old Glory to any bride. This place sets the standard for how weddings should operate. I would do it all over again with Old Glory by my side! Thanks for the best day ever! I will remember it for the rest of my life!
Megan – Bride
This venue is just perfect! I have been in love with old glory ranch since I was young. I never dreamed of having my wedding anywhere else and they exceeded my expectations. It was the most perfect day at the most gorgeous venue. Having an on-site coordinator and all the staff made the day go so smoothly, I didn’t have to worry about a thing. They made it everything we ever wanted and more!
Old Glory Ranch (“OGR”), the owner, Suzanne McCord, and her fabulous staff (especially Karen!) are amazing and helped make my wedding day the best day ever. We fell in love with OGR from the pictures online and seeing it in person did not disappoint and sealed the deal the moment we first saw it in person. All of the facilities are fabulous and the chapel is amazing. The grounds are beautiful and the flowers in the spring are gorgeous. The staff takes care of every little detail the day of the wedding and adds extra touches and helps tremendously leading up to the wedding with approved vendor list, vendor coordination, flower design, etc. Karen was the best venue coordinator ever and we could not have done it without her. Our day of coordinator, Carey, was fantastic as well. We had so many compliments from our guests about how friendly and helpful and professional the OGR staff were and how seamlessly the entire event flowed. We are beyond happy with our decision to have our wedding at OGR and highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for that country chic charm. And, the miniature donkeys are the icing on the cake! Thank you OGR!!
Valerie – Bride
If you want a magical Hill Country Wedding, contact Old Glory Ranch! Our daughters wedding was wonderful. Suzanne McCord has a fabulous staff that can help you plan the day you want. They helped me and my daughter with all of our questions. I was able to have a great time at my daughters wedding as everything went so smoothly.
Kay – Mother of the Bride
We were married here in November, it was wonderful! Karen and Suzanne did a wonderful job coordinating with my mom, (and myself remotely, as I was out of state). Couldn’t imagine a more perfect place, even with day of adjustments due to weather. Everything was so seamless and beautiful! Sweetest people and gorgeous venue. Everyone was impressed and had a WONDERFUL time
Kristen – Bride
Karen and Suzanne were so helpful in every way possible. I literally had nothing to worry about. If I had a question, I just emailed Karen and she responded very quickly. Sometimes even after business hours. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting a beautiful venue with everything included!
Carter/Sowders Wedding – Bride
We can’t say enough positive things about our experience with Old Glory Ranch. From the start of the planning process to the big day they absolutely thought of everything and made us feel like family. Our family members did not have to lift a finger and could just enjoy our big day because the wedding venue took care of things down to the last detail. Not only is this place gorgeous, the people are what truly make the difference. We are so happy we were able to say our vows and OGR.
Coker/Hevner Wedding – Bride

This is a great place for a wedding. Everyone one of the staff treated us well, and made our wedding a great experience.
Frank/Arenstien Wedding – Groom
Thanks again to both you and your staff for making Carrie and Danny’s wedding a most memorable event. Carrie was so pleased with the assistance she ……… from both April and Carey. Everything went so well and we were pleased with all. Wish the cold wind had not limited using the nice patio, but all ……… and had fun. Appreciate your attention to all of the organization in planning this memorable event for our families. Your facility was the perfect choice.
Thank you, Russel
Worley/Denton – Father of the Bride
I want to thank you for the …….. job you and your staff did for Carrie and Danny’s wedding. It was such a beautiful and extremely memorable experience! The venue and flowers and candles etc. were gorgeous. But most of all, your professionalism, attention to details suggestions and attentiveness are remarkable. Everyone was right there all the time to answer any questions and help. All of the quests were just blown away! Please pass on our thanks to April who was just great and the rest of the staff! It was the perfect wedding and reception.
Best regards, Drew.
Worley/Denton – Mother of the Bride
Our daughter got married there April 14, 2018. It was BEAUTIFUL and so well organized. They handled all last minute details with vendors. I was so relaxed on the wedding day and was able to enjoy spending that time with my daughter. Not only did the bride have fun at her wedding, but my husband and I had a blast too!! Our DJ was awesome! The flowers we amazing!! Event Site Manager, Karen Smith was WONDERFUL at handling all the details so I didn’t have to. Our Event Planner Carey Millington ran a tight ship and kept the day on track without making it feel stuffy and rigid. After the event was over, our car was already completely loaded by their staff with any items that were ours to take home. What a brilliant gift for us! My husband and I were able to go back to our cabin and visit with our family instead of spending an hour or so gathering our things. I would recommend this venue over and over again! Thanks for everything OLD GLORY RANCH!
Mooney/Perry Wedding – Mother of the Bride
Old Glory Ranch is a stunning wedding venue. They were a little hesitant to move some of the decor around at first, but ended up working with me to bring to life my design ideas – the flowers (in house floral design) and set up were BEAUTIFUL and the wedding day coordinators (included) did an AMAZING job making the whole day run flawlessly. They had people help with parking, they packed our car for us, they really were on the ball – Can’t say thank you to them enough. It was the best day and the perfect Texas hill country wedding spot!
Melissa – Bride
Old Glory Ranch and their staff helped create the most fun and memorable wedding for my husband and I! From the second we drove passed the front gate, I knew this was the perfect location for us. The beautiful chapel, the gorgeous river, the adorable mini donkeys…should I go on? The ranch is fabulous. Plus, the deal gets even better because the OGR staff are absolutely phenomenal as well. They are organized, punctual, professional, genuine, and kind. The staff are focused on helping bring your vision to life while keeping your budget (and reality) in mind. With all of these amazing attributes, I still thought my wedding night would be hectic and that I would not be able to enjoy the night to its fullest. I could not have been more wrong. The night flowed beyond smoothly and my husband and I had an absolute blast. I have received numerous compliments from our friends and family that attended saying that they also had an amazing time celebrating the night away. You cannot go wrong choosing Old Glory Ranch as the place you say I do!
Ali – Bride
Everything went perfectly was an amazing day for entire family. The venue was absolutely beautiful and my day and days leading up were completely stress free. Every detail was taken care of. I wouldn’t have change one single thing!
Lisa – Bride
If you want to be well cared for while you plan your wedding, meet wonderful, professional, down-to-earth, and exceptional wedding planners, go to Old Glory Ranch. That’s to say nothing of the classic, authentic, beautiful, and oh-so-FUN space. The property and whole experience was outstanding.
Erin – Bride
Our wedding went off without a hitch and the day was absolutely magical! Not only is OGR beautiful, and has the cutest mini donkeys, but the staff is amazing as well. Karen and Carey were wonderful to work with and had everything completely taken care of so I didn’t have to stress at all on my wedding day. This venue isn’t the cheapest but you get what you pay for… It is DEFINITELY WORTH IT!!! It really cuts down on a lot of worry and hassle due to the fact that the majority of things go through OGR and that they also coordinate everything with your outside vendors. Also, it’s nice that there are so many staff members available on your wedding day to ensure that everything goes perfect. If I had to do it all over again I would pick OGR without any hesitation!
Kelsey – Bride
Old Glory did an amazing job for our wedding, and I couldn’t have been more happier! I had the wedding of my dreams, because of Old Glory and the amazing staff. From day one of planning to the day of everything was taken care of and organized. April & Carey made our day so special, & gave us our fairytale wedding. Everything ran so smoothly! Thank you Old Glory Ranch for our special day! Suzanne the owner of Old Glory has an amazing venue, and makes everything special!
Katy – Bride
My daughter dreamed of having her wedding here since she was 9 or 10. She is now 25 and they made her dream come true. We couldn’t of had a better place with its rustic charm and a beautiful chapel. We had nothing but complements of how beautiful her wedding was. It all ran very smoothly and the flowers were amazing as they have the florist on site. They will make your dream come true.
Susan M – Mother of the Bride
Old Glory Ranch is the perfect Ranch Wedding Venue! Suzanne, April and Karen and the entire staff went above and beyond to make sure our wedding was perfect. They took care of everything and I was able to enjoy the wedding instead of worrying about details. We had a freak cold front in April come through and the staff got heaters all set up and made sure our guest didn’t freeze! We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding. The miniature donkeys, the carriage ride and the venue made our wedding stand out from all the others I have been too. I would do it all over again and not change a thing!
Carrie – Bride
My daughter Michelle got married Sept 15, 2018 at Old Glory Ranch. April, Carey and Suzanne were extremely easy to work with and walked us through the process from the beginning to the end . The staff was top class and professional! The flowers, which Suzanne takes alot of pride in, were the most beautiful flowers we have ever seen. Just amazing !The design package process was easily done with Suzanne and April. Everything was done with perfection and professionalism. Her wedding was exactly what we wished for and above what we wished for. Old Glory Ranch went above the call of duty . We Highly recommend Old Glory Ranch . If there were 10 stars I would have given that. Thanks again for making a dream come true! And we all became family and friends through the process.
Susan W – Mother of the Bride
Had an excellent experience with OGR and the entire staff did their part to make our wedding a wonderful event – for us and all of our friends and family!
William – Groom
If your son or daughter is planning a wedding and they mean the world to you….there is no other place like Old Glory Ranch in Wimberley, TX. Best venue in TEXAS! The attention to detail, along with the customer service is the example for others to follow. My wife and I were the brides parents and we felt like we were invited guests as well….it was a worry and stress “free” experience! Old Glory Ranch, was the first venue we visited and immediately realized, there was no reason to visit any others….Thank you for the wedding experience of a lifetime!
Louis – Father of the Bride
From the moment we walked into Chapel Hall at Old Glory Ranch we knew instantly that was where we were meant to be married. We met April and she was so inviting and made wedding planning look easy! Next, we met Karen and she was absolutely amazing in every way. She was very personable and made our dream wedding come true! Suzanne and ALL the staff family at Old Glory Ranch were so warm, accommodating, and paid very close attention to details! We can’t thank everyone at OGR enough for making our wedding day the BEST day of our life!
Amy – Bride
100% stop looking and book this venue, Karen Smith was awesome to work with. The staff was amazing and super nice, their vendors were over the top awesome and the price was great! If you want to DIY [I did] the pavilion is the perfect venue, you barely need anything as far as decorations. Old Glory goes above and beyond expectations. They helped make my wedding day the most amazing day I could have ever imagined. Even with going through me [a busy grad student who lives 4 hours away, with a tight budget, and only 3 months to plan the wedding] they managed to stay so professional and attentive to every question and need. They are so helpful beyond the contract, I would definitely work with them again in the future. Have a DJ bring lighting, and you wont need to go to the trouble of buying and putting up extra lights. Oh, and use the donkeys, they were a HUGE hit for my guests and awesome for pictures.
Victoria – Bride
I knew as soon as I walked into the chapel for the first time that Old Glory Ranch would be the place I got married. Our wedding was on 1/14/17, and it was the most beautiful, special, and unforgettable night ever. From a woman who did not know all that goes into planning a wedding and also decided to do it in 3 short months, the staff at OGR made it possible and stress free. They definitely know what they’re doing and go out of their way to help you with whatever you need, large or small. The place is absolutely breathtaking. Suzanne, the owner, really knows how to capture the look you’re going for. In my design meeting with her, I just gave her a brief description of what I wanted and showed her some pictures, and she far exceeded my expectations. My bridal bouquet was exquisite, and the venue looked better than I even imagined. Karen was my coordinator and she helped me every step of the way, and always responded quickly. She also contacted all my vendors so I didn’t have to worry about a thing, which I am so grateful for! Carey was an incredible planner! She made the whole night go so smooth. Any last minute changes or ideas, she made it happen. She really is amazing at what she does and made the night come together beautifully. The entire staff was great!! They really go above and beyond to make your wedding day magical…I would highly recommend this venue for a wedding. Thank you all for making my wedding perfect!!
Jackie – Bride
Everything about our day was just amazing! We fell in love with the venue immediately and only fell further in love with everything as our relationship with Old Glory grew– everyone we worked with was amazing. Every detail was important to the staff. Communication was excellent throughout the planning process, and our wedding day was the smoothest, happiest, most fun night of our lives! Thank you everyone at Old Glory Ranch for making our day even better than we could have imagined!
Jessi – Bride
From the moment we drove in and saw the chapel we were in awe. April took us on a tour and were hooked from there, not to mention BEER BURROS! The ranch is immaculately kept and just so beautiful. HUGE thank you to Suzanne, April, Carey and Karen for making our vision come to life, while still being mindful of our budget and working with us even though we were three hours away and dealing with a hurricane. All of our guests keep raving about how fun, beautiful and well organized everything was, you all truly made our day AMAZING!
Mariolein – Bride
Old glory made everything so easy- from beginning to end, all we had to do was show them what we liked and the show up and party! They made our day really special, and most importantly, they took care of every little detail amazingly so that we, our friends, and family’s were able to enjoy the ceremony and reception without having to lift a finger…they even packed our cars and included a after wedding snack for us in our car! If you want a beautiful wedding, custom designed for you with all the help and support you can imagine, this venue is for you! And who doesn’t want that?
Bonny – Bride
My husband and I were married at OGR about 3 months ago and it was our perfect day!! Suzanne, Karen, Carey and April were beyond amazing to work with. These ladies made the wedding planning process a breeze. They listened to all of our thoughts and ideas and the wedding was stunning! My wedding was in April and the bluebonnets were beautiful as well as the chapel and the grounds surrounding it. My husband and I have received compliment after compliment about how beautiful and fun our wedding was. Old Glory Ranch made our wedding day dreams come true!
Willow – Bride
Old Glory is a must see, must book venue if you want an outdoor or hill country wedding. I could not have found a more perfect venue for my daughter’s wedding. Not only is it gorgeous, but Suzanne and my onsite coordinator, Karen Smith, were so accommodating to all of our special needs. We had our first venue have to cancel about 3 months before the wedding, and Suzanne graciously made Old Glory work for us, even with our limited budget. Old Glory made EVERYTHING my daughter had imagined come true! We did DIY at the Pavillion, and I was nervous about pulling it off, but Karen was so helpful it seemed easy. Even with my being in Houston and my daughter being away at Dental School, Karen kept tabs on us and made sure we had a plan for every necessary detail (many we didn’t think of ourselves!). Then when the day came, their staff could not be more professional! They were behind the scenes making up for any ‘mistakes’ we made, so her day was perfect. I could not be more grateful. The pictures are gorgeous – the landscape and venue buildings are so easy for photographers to work with! And you must get the donkeys – huge hit with the guests and the photographers . If I could give 10 stars I would!
Mary – Mother of the Bride
My daughter got married at Old Glory Ranch in October. Our experience was wonderful. They take care of everything! So many of the guests commented on the beautiful venue and how well everything was run.
Callahan/Blomstrom Wedding – Mother of the Bride
Wow, where do I begin? I arrived at this venue unexpectedly and the owner Susan happened to be there to give me a tour. When I say fate brought me here, I mean it. Susan welcomed me with open arms and I knew stepping into this venue that this was the place I wanted to marry my best friend. Her coordinators were so great at keeping me up to date with all that needed to be done, but what you really should know is they do everything for you. Literally everything. I had the BEST wedding, more than I could have dreamed of due to this venue and the staff. I was amazed on my wedding day on the outcome and not only that, I got to ENJOY my wedding day along with our family. Everyone that attended was so amazed. Thank you Old Glory Ranch for making my dreams come true!!
Koop/Calhoun Wedding – Bride
What a wonderful place to have a wedding. Everything was beautifully done and the staff couldn’t have been any better. Truly a turn key operation and they will take care of all of your needs. Everyone was saying that this was the most beautiful wedding they have been to!
Heyne/Law Wedding – Groom
Old Glory Ranch went above and beyond our expectations for our wedding venue. We first met with April and were sold on Old Glory from the moment we walked in. We worked with Karen and of course Susan and they were both more than helpful. They were prompt with all of their responses, so flexible with our meetings and amazingly helpful for everything we needed for our wedding day. My vision for our wedding not only came to life but exceeded my expectations. I loved working with Old Glory Ranch and would recommend it to anyone looking for a wedding venue or anything else!
Teatom/Mueller Wedding – Bride
What a perfect wedding venue! The staff were amazing. So wonderful to work with. The look after every last detail. We planned this wedding from Oregon and they accommodated us despite the distance. The guests said it was the prettiest wedding they had been to! Thank u!
Nielsen/Fan Wedding – Sister of the Bride
We got married at Old Glory Ranch at the end of September. As a bride you feel it is so important to have every little thing exactly the way you want it. Old Glory Ranch made the entire experience so much more enjoyable. Not only does the staff really care about you and your wedding, but they offer so much in their package it really limits the number of vendors you have to manage. You don’t even have to manage your vendors because Old Glory will work with them. They reach out and make sure everything is set for your event. The really strive to make your wedding yours. We still have people call us and talk about how amazing our wedding was. The guests all felt like it was smoothly run and had no down time, everything flowed into the next thing. It really put my mind at ease the day of to know that they had it all under control. If you are getting married in the Texas Hill Country I highly recommend having Old Glory Ranch as your venue. It was absolutely stunning and I can’t stress enough how the people that work there make all the difference. I loved my experience.
Christian/Hamilton Wedding- Bride
From the very beginning my experience as the groom of our wedding at Old Glory Ranch was great! All the staff from the planners to the actual coordinator on the day of the event were extremely pleasant, knowledgeable, and professional which made a very stressful time and process so much better. Our wedding day was amazing and their staff did everything possible to make all of it go off without a hitch. I still am getting comments from friends and family on how beautiful the venue was and how well the everything flowed from wedding to reception. If you’re looking to have a great wedding in the beautiful Texas Hill Country then look no further!
Christian/Hamilton – Groom
Old Glory is the prefect setting for a wedding. It felt right the moment we walked through the door of the Chapel. Our daughter got married there in April and we are still hearing from friends and family what an amazing night it was. Many, many thanks to all the staff for outstanding service but most especially to Karen, who goes above and beyond to help. We had definite ideas for centre pieces for the tables, which Suzanne hadn’t done before, but she surpassed herself. They were beautiful, as were all the flowers. The venue is unique, and the packages they offer remove some of the stress of organizing a wedding, from flowers to their eclectic choice of accessories. Thank you, Old Glory, for the most wonderful memories.
Junor/Williams – Mother of the Bride
I am finally getting around to writing this letter to you girls! I have been swamped ….but also I think it’s because I knew this would be hard to write. (I just don’t want it to be over! Want to relive it every day and don’t want to say goodbye!) Being a mother of boys, I never thought I would have an opportunity to plan a wedding like this! I LOVED every minute of it!!
You just can’t imagine how thankful we are for everything! We couldn’t have ever dreamed of a more perfect wedding! I knew it would go by fast and tried to take everything in. Everything that April told Willow and I about on our first visit did happen……and those were my favorite parts! You rang the bell and she stood in the doorway with sunset behind her (just like April said!) and it was perfect!!!
All of your hard work and attention to detail was amazing! The flowers were BEAUTIFUL!! The vendors you suggested were great! Thank you for the attention you gave to the family and wedding party! LOVED having those few minutes in front of the chapel after the service with beverages! That time to be together as a family before the party started was perfect!
Suzanne, the pictures you took are wonderful! Thank you!
Willow and her attendants have been in several weddings and they keep saying none compare to her wedding at Old Glory! The entire evening was seamless! You handled everything so we could enjoy our guests and party!
Thank you for giving us the perfect wedding and wonderful memories!
I wish all of you well and hope we stay in touch.
Much love, Rene’ Miller
Peppel/Miller Wedding – Mother of Groom
Carey & Karen,
I just wanted to thank you both for everything y’all did! You two are amazing at what you do and I can’t thank you enough. I’m sure you hear it all the time, but I’ve gotten about a million compliments on how beautiful the place was, how smooth everything ran, and how much fun everyone had. Thank you for making our wedding so perfect!!!!!!
Love, Jamie and Jackie Sutton
Petree/Sutton Wedding – Bride & Groom
Suzanne & Karen,
I am still on “Cloud Nine” from the beautiful and meaningful wedding that both of you helped create for my daughter, Meg…..It was simply magical and I have never seen two people that were so happy to be getting married…They both waited a long time to find one another, which makes it even more special!!! I have received so many compliments on how wonderful the property is at the ranch, plus raves about the decorations, flowers, donkey’s and your helpful staff. Once again, Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making my daughter’s dream wedding come true…A very grateful Mary Lou (mother of the bride 11.12.2016)
Pringle/Lowe Wedding – Mother of the Bride
I know some time has passed since the wedding, but I want you to know how truly grateful I am for all that you did to make it such a wonderful memory for Brent and I. It was the wedding of my dreams and I couldn’t have done it without you and the rest of the team. You definitely nailed it on the vision I had and everything (from what I knew) went flawlessly. Brent and I are truly appreciative for everything you did and the memory you created. Meg
Pringle/Lowe Wedding – Bride
Janna and I have enjoyed our wedding at Old Glory Ranch so tremendously. We are amazed at your commitment to excellence, your staff, your dedication, and attention to detail. It simply was without a doubt the most beautiful day of our lives. While we missed you on 7/30/16, we felt your presence in the details and the thorough care of your staff. Thank you for letting us start our life together at your property. It will always be in our minds, hearts and our memories, and its the loving, caring people such as yourself who make the biggest impact! We will look forward to seeing you again soon and will recommend OGR to all of our friends!
With Love, Tyler & Janna

“My entire experience with Old Glory Ranch and the incredible, personable and caring staff made my perfect day so enjoyable. The decorations and the flowers left me breathless. In all of my life, I could have never imagined such a perfect venue/day. We literally got to enjoy every moment of it and it was so perfect! My husband and I are so appreciative for the job that was done to make the venue so beautiful, making our wedding day absolutely perfect. We will remember this day for the rest of our lives and have made lasting friendships with the incredible staff members. My wedding was truly perfect, the venue was gorgeous and I would not change a thing. I will definitely be visiting this beautiful ranch often.”

“The venue and staff are truly one of a kind! My husband and I were looking for an outdoor venue in the hill country for our April wedding that had a good “plan B” option in case of rain. I was set on having it outdoors until we walked into Old Glory’s chapel for the first time. Pictures truly don’t do it justice. The chapel (and adjacent stone patio) were like nothing we had ever seen. It’s charming, unique, vintage, and -to boot- has a very neat history behind the building of it.
The icing on top of a great venue is the staff. We worked primarily with April, Karen, and Suzanne. They were all tentative, helpful, personable, and professional. Especially the weekend of our wedding, knowing they were on top of everything allowed my husband, myself, and our families to relax and enjoy such a special time. A big thanks to OGR staff for giving us the best wedding we could have asked for!”
Lauren Melear – Lawson/Melear Wedding – Bride
“Bluebonnets and beautiful weather were just the icing of the most perfect evening for our son’s rehearsal dinner. Old Glory’s staff and the location were beyond what we had envisioned. Suzanne, Karen, and the rest of the crew executed an outstanding party beneath the old oak trees. We were able to sit back and soak it all in!”
Dawn Gibson – Bruce/King Rehearsal Dinner – Mother of the Groom
“We are still hearing about how amazing our wedding was and how awesome the staff was. It was truly a blessing working with Old Glory. They made my dreams come true… I never felt like they were planning any other weddings at the same time as mine. The focus and attention was on my wedding. I planned my wedding “by myself” but old glory held my hand the whole way and answered every phone call and email with great detail. I could go on and on about how wonderful this venue is and the staff that works there. ”
Lauren Neinast- Neeley/Neinast Wedding – Bride
Old Glory Ranch is a stunning Hill Country venue! If you have a vision they can make it happen. We were married on October 8, 2016. The wedding planning process is a bit overwhelming but with Karen leading the way you get a feeling of comfort and competence. We could not have done it without her. Thank you Karen! Our wedding day was perfect and the staff was there every step of the way pampering and guiding us. The floral decor was beautiful and the vendors they recommended were solid performers from the music to the catering to the photographer and the cake… it was all so well done. Close to the end of the reception we were having so much fun we extended the reception for another hour. We just did not want the day to end. One of my cousins from New York said it the best. “This is not just a wedding, this is an experience!”
Margie – Mother of the Bride
…I hope everything in Wimberley has been well. I have been keeping an eye on the [flood] clean up efforts and I love y’all’s new “Boot Scootin’ to the Chapel” boot!
Shelton and I can’t wait to come visit Wimberley again, I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect wedding day. We still have guests telling us how beautiful of a place Old Glory Ranch is and what a great time they had at our wedding. Thank you again for helping us make that happen!
And I love the pictures! Thank you for sharing them with us. My mom has finally made it up to visit “the newlyweds” and she brought me the photo discs. Thank you for sharing them with us.
Hope you have a wonderful week,
Claire Carpenter – Schendel/Carpenter Wedding – Bride
Suzanne ~ I wanted to thank you, Gina, Carey and your entire staff for all your hard work to make our daughter’s dream wedding come true! When we visited Old Glory Ranch, Nicole fell in love with Chapel Hall and the beautiful surrounding grounds. Even in the wake of the floods the staff took great care to keep us updated and at ease that everything would continue as planned, we couldn’t have asked for more! Our guests may have had to drive through the devastated area to get to OGR but once they arrived it was an oasis of beauty and our guests immediately felt at ease. Chapel Hall was a perfect setting for the wedding and our cocktail hour outside under the covered patio went off without one single hitch. Our guests were so amazed when they re-entered the Chapel Hall and saw it transformed into a beautiful reception area. We received many compliments on the venue, flowers, food and none of it would have been possible without your team and your vender recommendations, even from 13 hours away it made things much easier. Our guests had so much fun dancing the night away to the OGR DJ [Chris Heckendorn], he was great and kept everything flowing nicely all evening. Thank you again, we can’t say enough good things about OGR and I know it’s something all of us will remember for many years to come!
Donene Pollack – Woirhaye-McWain Wedding – Mother of the Bride
Gina ~ I hope you and everyone else at Old Glory are OK.
I wanted to thank you all for making our dreams come true! We had so many compliments on the chapel and the ranch itself. You all have a gorgeous venue and we could not have picked a better location. You and your staff were so helpful in guiding us through the entire process. From initial recommendations to the helpfulness the day of the event, we truly appreciate all that you and your staff did.
I wanted to let you know that the donkeys were a huge hit. I am so glad that you offer this unique feature.
I also wanted to thank you and Suzanne for accommodating our wedding on Friday. It really meant a lot to Rick to be able to honor his parents by getting married on their anniversary. I am sure they are looking down from heaven smiling.
The photos are amazing. The one that you took during our first dance is one of my favorites.
I could go on and on about how you all really made a special day in our life more special.
Rick and I thank you from the bottom our hearts and want you to know how much you and the Old Glory staff are appreciated.
Melanie & Rick – Zepeda/Newman Wedding, Bride & Groom
“Suzanne ~ It has taken me a few days to get over the adrenaline rush of the wedding. I am sure you are familiar with this feeling. I thought I was emotional before the event, I did not expect the emotions to continue this week.
It was simply amazing! I want to do it again! It went by lightning fast. In fact, I am not sure how much of it I even remember. Everything was beautiful and it was exactly what Sarah wanted. Her friends, who know her best, were so impressed with how well it match her and Bruce’s personalities.
Bruce’s family and friends were stunned. I am pretty sure they expected a ‘dude’ ranch and having to step over cow patties. The fabulous combination of rustic surrounding with 5 star service was clearly unexpected.
Karen was so patient with us, especially with Bill’s wine expectations. Every contact point we had with Old Glory was so efficient and easy.”
Sandy – Bryan/Hallett Wedding, Parents of the Bride
“Hi Gina and Carey ~
First of all, my apologies for just now getting this email out to you. It’s been crazy since the wedding and we literally just got back from our honeymoon. Stuart and I would like to personally thank you for everything. Our wedding was beyond perfect and we could not believe just how smooth everything went. All of our guests couldn’t stop talking about how beautiful the venue was and how much fun they all had. Every single detail from the floral design, the carriage ride, down to the flow of the ceremony and reception were everything we ever envisioned, if not more. You guys really exceeded our expectations and we are so grateful for all that you’ve done! Thank you so much. We are so happy with the service we received and will definitely refer you to anyone wanting a magical and majestic wedding in a gorgeous hill country! 🙂
Thank you again. We really appreciate all that you’ve done. Best wedding we’ve ever been to! :)”
Sheiryll Shoff – Shoff/Celauro Wedding, Bride
“Suzanne, Gina, and Karen, What a fabulous job you did with Kimberly and Jordan’s wedding. Our guests loved the ceremony, the reception, and the secret send off! So many of our friends and family commented about the beauty and majesty of the Chapel at Old Glory Ranch. You gals made it so easy for us to have a great time that evening. It was truly a night that is forever etched in our minds. Thank you for the working so hard to make this wedding so special for us. We are forever grateful for you.”
Chris and Bruce – Curran/Blount Wedding, Parents of the Bride
“Hi Gina, I apologize for the delay in responding. So much has been going on and the time has been flying by. We checked out [Facebook] the link and loved the photos! Thank you so much! We also received the package in the mail that contained the CD with all of the pictures taken at our wedding. Gina, we could not have been happier with the way our wedding turned out. I truly feel that I had my “dream wedding”! I want to thank YOU so much for everything. You were always available and you always had the answers to everything! Thanks to you and Kellye, I was able to have an amazing time at my wedding and not have to worry about anything. Joe and I are still hearing so many good things about our wedding celebration as well as the venue and staff. Our families and bridal party were so impressed with the quality of OGR’s service, and so were we. You guys are amazing and I am so thankful to have found you! You can certainly count on my review very soon. By the way, we are expecting to receive our wedding video and photos by next week. We are going to get recap of our wedding (about 5 minutes) that’s going to be made available online. I will be sure to provide you with the link. I will also share some pics that I think you might like to see.”
Celeste [Salazar] & Joseph Ruiz de Chavez Wedding – Bride & Groom
“Dear Suzanne, It is so difficult to express the true measure of our gratitude for making Jon & Jessica’s wedding day a cherished family memory. It is quite a gift to be able to turn a creative vision into reality. You along with Gina, Kellye and all the Old Glory Staff brought it to life. I think their wedding truly reflected how extraordinary people they are and they love family and cherish friends and love being outdoors. The land at Old Glory has such a feeling of being honored and cared for as well as all of the old wagons and pieces of history. One of my favorite memories of the day was walking to the patio and seeing everything brought to life. It was such a feeling of peacefulness. I looked at all the little details and all of the flowers and the bride’s cake table and all the family photos. Your pictures captured that moment for me when I received the CD’s.
I wanted to tell you too, the guests told me how nice the Old Glory Staff was to them. I wish Old Glory Ranch much success in the future and individuality I wish you all many blessings.”
Kathleen McInnis – Felhofer/Caranto Wedding – Mother of the Groom
“Dear Staff and crew, Mark and I wanted to express our appreciation for the wonderful experience we had at Old Glory Ranch during Cole & Caroline’s wedding. From start to finish, you were prepared, attentive and professional. Even when it stormed most of Friday, you helped us set up for the rehearsal dinner at the last minute. So many guests told us it was the best rehearsal dinner they had attended.
Karen, thank you for coordinating all the details that made each event run smoothly (even squeezing limes for those endless margaritas & sending someone to the store when we were running out of tequila!). Wade & Gina, thanks for all your hard work and being so helpful and accommodating. You made it easy and lots of fun.”
Cindy McNair – Smith/McNair Wedding – Mother of the Groom
“Dear Suzanne and staff at Old Glory, Please accept my apologies for the tardiness of this thank you, the month of May was full with a high school graduation at the end of a wedding! I wanted to make sure you knew how much we appreciated everything you and the staff at Old Glory Ranch did to make Cole and Caroline’s wedding such a success. It was beautiful in every sense of the word. Everything ran smoothly and I didn’t have a worry the entire evening. The tables were stunning and the flowers, overall, were my favorite part, amazing!
I will definitely recommend your venue to anyone and have bragged about it often. I have one more daughter, so possibly our paths will cross again. Thanks again for helping make all of Caroline’s wedding dreams come true.”
Kelly Murley – Smith/McNair Wedding – Mother of the Bride
“Dear Suzanne, I am writing to express my heartfelt appreciation and thanks to you and all the staff at Old Glory. Everything was absolutely perfect! When Lauren and Zachary told us they had decided to be married at a ranch in Wimberley, I was a bit surprised. I knew then that Old Glory Ranch must be something really special. I had no idea how spectacular it would be.
I must admit, it was a bit difficult for me to relax and relinquish control of all the details to people I didn’t know and were three and half hours away. I can not tell you how many times I was asked if I was sure everything was being taken care and if I was nervous. What a relief to be able to respond to them that I had complete faith in you and everyone at Old Glory. Not one detail was overlooked and everyone went out of their way to be helpful, kind, and accommodating to us.
The staff was spectacular before, during and after the wedding. I would not change one thing. I have been told by so many guests that it was the best wedding they have ever attended. Hats off to each and every one of you for all your hard work and effort. We loved every minute of it! Thanks for making us look good and giving my daughter and son in law a fairy tale wedding.”
Many thanks and Blessings to you all,
Robin Lockhart – Lockhart/Smith Wedding – Mother of the Bride
“Dear Gina, Where do we even begin to thank you for everything you and your staff did to make our wedding day truly unbelievable? From the very beginning, every detail, accommodation, special request, and mini-emotional meltdown (on my part!) was handled with compassion, professionalism, and grace. You truly have a gift for working with people!
Our guests, almost all of whom had never been to Texas before, have been flooding us with compliments of the ranch setting, the staff, and the decorations. Thank you for making this a night to remember not only for us, but for all our friends and family as well!”
Jeremy & Amanda Fox – Bride & Groom
“Hi Karen, I hope all is well in Wimberley! We are still on a “high” from our BEAUTIFUL wedding! I can’t extend enough “thank you’s” to you, Suzanne, Kim and the entire team — everything was JUST PERFECT!!! Thank you again!”
Kellie Burris/Barnett – Bride
“Hello, Ladies. I intended to send this out to you before now, so please forgive my tardiness! I wanted to let you know how much we appreciated all the hard work you put into making this the perfect occasion.
There was some initial disappointment when Kellie learned that the wedding deck was “out”. However, I am hard-pressed to imagine how any setting could have been prettier than what you all put together in the chapel. Multiple guests remarked that “this was the best wedding I have ever been to”. A very large part of that success is due to you all.
Judy Burris – Burris/Barnett Wedding – Mother of the Bride
“Gina, I received the check thank you! And again, thank you so much for everything!! We will be talking about how perfect that evening was for years to come!!! Can’t tell you how many times people have told us it was the most beautiful wedding they have ever been to!
Allison & Benjamin – Jones/Benavides Wedding – Bride & Groom
“Dear Suzanne, we have received the deposit refund check and want to thank you for the Beautiful CD of photos!!! We will enjoy the memories for years to come! I want to let you and your staff to know how much y’all have impressed our guests!! We are still hearing compliments! Thank You again for making our daughters dream wedding come true!!”
“Dear Karen and Kellye, I left a message on your phone but I wanted to thank you both for all your hard work! Truly, you made Leslie and Brad’s dream come true! Everything was absolutely better than we could have imagined. You both were truly delightful to work with and made the process so easy.
Not only are you both professional and efficient but just a true joy to work with and to have the opportunity to get to know. Again I thank you for making our Leslie so very happy with the most beautiful evening I have ever experienced!!
With sincere appreciation,”
Harry & Brenda Green – Green/Wray – Parents of the Bride
“Suzanne, Karen, Kim & countless others, Just wanted to say thank you once again for coordinating such a beautiful wedding! The Sunday evening was just magical really. Old Glory is an amazing property and venue and the chapel just took my breath away the first time I saw it!
Thank all the amazing staff behind the scenes. Everyone was so very helpful, friendly, smiling & excellent in their role. We appreciate all the thousands of details each one of you attended to. It will be an evening our family will remember and cherish forever. Please pass on our thanks and appreciation to all!”
Jeanne & David Pitts – Pitts/Kaspar wedding – Parents of the Bride
“Thank you so much for your hard work and making our day so special!”
Courtney & Tim – Cox/Smith Wedding – Bride and Groom
“Suzanne, Nick & I want to thank all of you who took part in making our wedding day the best day ever! From the Chapel and reception decor, to the lighting and flowers, everything looked absolutely stunning! We have had numerous compliments about how beautiful everything was! We couldn’t be more happy about the outcome of our special day! Gina and Carey – thank y’all so much for making everything run smoothly (even when we almost ran out of beer!). We are so thankful for you two. We hope all is well at the ranch! Thanks again!”
Nick & Amy Cronan – Sandel/Cronan Wedding – Bride and Groom
“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)
“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.”
Debbie Bowman – Bowman/Hildebrand Wedding – Mother of Bride
“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 – Godsey/Hickey Wedding – Bride
“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)
“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 groom)
“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 bride)
“PS. I guess the only drop of sadness in this whole thing is that I am really going to miss you guys and OGR!!”
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!”
Gina Cottom (mother of bride)
“Suzanne, Thank 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 fantastic wedding.
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!”
Cynthia Bryant (mother of bride)
“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!”
Cynthia Bryant (mother of bride)
“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 and help!”
“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 bride)
“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 end. Gorgeous.
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 meaningful. 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 drought conditions 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 patio area. 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 bride)
PS- 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.
Diane & Donnie (parents of groom)
“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 the ceremony.
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 my Blackberry 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 bride)
“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 did.
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!”
Terri Pointer (mother of bride)
“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!”
“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 her!
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 & Gina:
It was such a pleasure working with you this past weekend! Thank you so much for your patience
throughout the entire process. I look forward to many more opportunities for us to work together in the future!”
“Suzanne, you and your staff at OGR made the Loring-Ikard Wedding event a huge success, both for Ledlie and Will but also the gathered family and friends. We all had a wonderful and
stress-free time! Thank you for providing such a beautiful place and perfect weather. Thanks also for the most welcome CD of photos. In the hurly-burly some of the prettiest settings and arrangements may not have received the attention they deserved from the bridal party. Thank you for providing us with a second look. We appreciate your photographic record of an unforgettable occasion. With our best wishes.”
Steve and Hilary Loring
“Steve and I would like to thank you and the whole staff for all that you did to make our wedding perfect! We loved every minute of it and it was just as I dreamed. Everyone we spoke to after the wedding was so impressed with the location and how well everything went. Again, thank you for everything.”
“With the exception of the transportation issue (and I know that truly wasn’t your fault), everything went perfectly! Your staff is to be commended for the professionalism in which they handled every last detail. We thank you for everything!”
Robin Kehoe (mother of bride)
“Liz, your patience and assistance with everything cannot be thanked enough. I don’t know how I could have made it through the evening without you! You were there whenever we needed help and often before we even knew it! You are such an integral part of the OGR family and you and Suzanne complement each other beautifully. My parents and I had such fun working with both of you, and we wish you all the best.”
“Suzanne, I wanted to express my gratitude and appreciation for the wonderful picnic and wedding celebration at Old Glory Ranch. My parents, Glenn and I were so thrilled with every detail – all of the creative ideas, thoughtful planning and careful execution from yourself and the OGR staff. We were told time and time again how beautiful the location was and how much fun everyone had and they LOVED the green tractor, especially Glenn!
Thanks again for such great fun and lasting memories. We wish you continued success with OGR, and I hope our paths cross again in the future.”
“Thank you for a great experience at Old Glory Ranch. We were quite impressed with your facility and the professional staff. Everything seemed to go as planned and the guests seemed to be enjoying themselves. It was the first time as a musician I was offered valet parking and everyone was so helpful. Please keep us in mind for future engagements should the need arise. All of the Tone Rangers had a positive experience and we’d be happy to play there again.”
John Russell (and the Tone Rangers)
“Suzanne, I wanted to thank you and your staff for hosting such a fabulous event for our daughter Erica’s wedding. The months of planning really paid off. I appreciate your thoughtful approach to designing and delivery of such a beautiful event. I know you went to a lot of additional effort on our behalf and it showed in the finished product. It was truly magical to see it all come together! Also, your staff is awesome! I received many wonderful compliments from our guests. I can not say enough nice things about Kellye. She took such great care of us. I felt like I was in good hands and that every detail was covered. It allowed me to relax and enjoy the evening. Thank you for helping to make Erica and George’s wedding a memorable event for all those who participated.”
“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’”
Terry & Gail
“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.”
“Suzanne, Bob and I just wanted to thank you again for such an outstanding and ridiculously beautiful wedding! Our guests were in awe of the beauty of Old Glory Ranch and uniqueness of the setting. Courtney and Brian were thrilled with the entire wedding. Your staff was so helpful and we felt like the entire event went off without a hitch! We appreciate the great attentiveness to every detail throughout the evening. The planning process was so easy, and I was so thankful for all of your suggestions and help. Sandra and Carey were so gracious, and we appreciate their individual help on all matters. Thanks again to Old Glory Ranch and all of your staff.”
Luanne and Bob Lurvey
““It goes without saying that Old Glory Ranch is a jewel. Nature and design have melded perfectly in this outstanding venue. God blessed us with perfect weather throughout the wedding weekend so that we could truly benefit from the magnificent settings. All attending enjoyed themselves at the Pavilion for the rehearsal dinner and the Chapel for the wedding and reception. The staff knows how to perform and present expertly, but your dearest gem is Kellye Lawson. She merits special commendation, and we salute her competence and compassion.”
Barbara and Ernie Koy
“Logistics-across-Texas presents foreseeable challenges when planning such a special event. But we had confidence all would work because Kellye is in Wimberley! While designing the rehearsal dinner, wedding and reception, your attention to our needs 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 for everything!”
“Kellye & Andrea, I just wanted to tell you both how much we appreciate all you did for the wedding. Everything was beautiful, and it all ran smoothly. We had a great time celebrating with family and friends. They all loved the ranch! Thank you so much for all of your hard work.”
“Suzanne it is hard to believe it has already been seven months since the wedding. We can not put into words what our weekend meant to us. You and your staff created our fairytale. We dreamed about how we wanted our wedding to be and those dreams were exceeded. Our friends and family are still talking about it the best wedding they have ever been to in their lives. God bless you and the Old Glory Ranch staff!”
Will and Leslie Oliver
“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
“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.”
“We just want to thank you, Kellye, for 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!”
Courtney & Mark Frazier
“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 and also the San Antonio area were in total agreement that Old Glory 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.”
“I just wanted to thank you and your staff for all of your help. Kim was wonderful. Quincy was gracious. Your whole staff went above and beyond, and I appreciate all you did. You have a beautiful ranch. I am glad I was able to share it for a day.”
“Thank you Kellye for working so hard to make our wedding day a beautiful one. We cannot tell you how many compliments we received about the beauty of Old Glory Ranch. After our wedding, the population of Wimberley may increase greatly Everyone we know now wants to move there. Your sweet attention to every detail was so appreciated. Thanks again.”
Emily & Toby Mills
“The complete process from planning the ceremony to the reception was great. Kelly, you were great. The decor was fantastic and the guests really enjoyed the reception and all of the details. You were superb, and I really appreciate what you did to make the wedding a memorable one. Anjie is very happy the way everything turned out. It was awesome.”
“I can’t thank all of you enough for making Stephen’s and my wedding perfect! Suzanne – the flowers were exactly what we wanted and everyone told me how much they loved them and the chapel. Kim- Thank you for always keeping us up to speed on everything. You were always there to answer our questions with a smile on your face. Carey- You made the wedding run so smoothly. You handled all the guests so well and did a great job of keeping the groom and groomsmen in check. I can’t begin to tell you how many people have asked about renting your facility. After two weeks, I still hear people talking about the wedding and how beautiful it was. I will recommend ya’ll from here on out to everyone I can. Thanks for all the great memories”
Trish and Stephen Mogonye
“I just wanted to take a moment to thank you and your staff. For simply not only being some of the friendliest people I have ever met, but for truly being one of the only hands on venue that I have ever witnessed – flawlessly taking care of the client. You will always be recommended by me for anyone looking for the BEST hill country wedding.”
Fred Bishop, DJ
“John and I wanted to take the opportunity 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 you.”
Jo Ann Woodward, Wedding Consultant @ Woodward & Schwartz Houston, Texas
“Thanks to you and your staff for making Kim’s wedding such a memorable and successful event. The overall experience was truly a positive one and we would recommend your facility to anyone who asks. Thanks for the CD’s with the pictures. You and your staff did an excellent job.”
Jim & Kathy Spalding
“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 — perfect! The happy couple returns today from Cabo San Jose, and we are all looking forward to Key’s photos so that we can cherish the memories over and over. Many sincere thanks again to you and your entire staff. Best wishes,”
Pam and Jim Kirkland

Trenda Osborne, Disk Jockey
“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!”
“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
“We can never thank you enough for all of your help with our wedding. We just keep talking about how perfect it was and how much we enjoyed it. It was the wedding we dreamed of, and we thank everyone at Old Glory! Kellye, your calm personality and warm spirit gave us such peace of mind. It didn’t seem like any of us were nervous. We will be forever grateful for you and your help with our special day. There are only beautiful memories which we will cherish forever.”
Zach and Julie Burns
“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 party!”
Ron Tilton, Birthday Party
“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!”
“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
“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!”
“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.”
“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.”
“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!”
“Just a brief note to thank you for your part in Kevin and Elizabeth’s wedding. It was everything I had hoped for and beyond. Friends and family are still talking about it! You all did a wonderful job and run a very smooth event. Thank you again for all of your efforts. It was truly a pleasure meeting and working with all of you.”
“Just a little note to say a big thank you for hosting and doing so much to make the River Oaks Breakfast Club Wimberley Saturday 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.”
“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!”
“Joal and I want to thank you and your entire staff for helping to make our wedding such a beautiful event. It was such a wonderful evening. We are so very happy that we chose Old Glory Ranch.

We would definitely love to come back and visit some time.”
Erin and Joal Harper
“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.

“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.

Please thank all your staff again. It was so much fun for us.”
“A very belated yet none-the-less a huge thank you to you all. Our wedding was everything we had hoped for and more! The floral design was outstanding. I truly 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 so talented! We look forward to seeing you again us I feel sure other friends will choose Old Glory Ranch for their wedding.”
Amy & Rob Lauer
“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 for everything!”
“Suzanne, 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!”
“Spencer and I want to express our sincerest thanks for the impeccable job you did on our wedding. the flowers and decorations were exquisite and the ambience was everything we dreamed of and more! Not only were Spencer and I thrilled with the outcome, but our guests were as well. We have received raving from all of our friends and family. Your staff and yourself truly helped to make our wedding “UNFORGETTABLE.”
“I wanted to tell you again how wonderful the wedding was. It was like a dream. Bryan and I were very happy with the way everything went off. Kathy (OGR wedding coordinator) is great too. She stayed so calm and took such good care of us. It made me be much more relaxed, that is 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.”
“Just wanted to write and say thank you 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!”
“We had the time of our lives at Old Glory Ranch! It was fun, challenging and the best opportunity to show off the Texas Hill country, the Texas lifestyle and just bring our team together. Thank you for everything!”

“As a wedding professional for going on 8 years I’ve seen just about every venue out there. And for brides that are looking in the Central Texas there are a LOT of great venues! However, as I was compiling my list of top 10 venues for a blog I wrote a while back I could think of no better country wedding venue in the state than Old Glory Ranch. Their chapel makes you feel like you traveled back in time to a place when the local church house was at the center of town. It’s gorgeous back patio and lawn are the perfect space for the country shabby chic wedding so many brides dream of. And wether you have a large or small wedding, they have 2 amazing spots to get married on what is likely the most beautiful section of the Blanco River in the state. If you are lucky enough to land a spring date at Old Glory Ranch the wildflowers are better than anything you can find in the area. As a wedding photographer and film-maker gorgeous scenes like the ones at Old Glory Ranch make my job pure joy. The fact that the staff at Old Glory Ranch are always a blast to be around is icing on the cake. And the classic style of the brides that book Old Glory Ranch are the cherry on top. If you’re looking for a country wedding you might as well make Old Glory Ranch the first stop on your tour of venues. It’s likely the only stop you’ll need to make.”

Old Glory Ranch is by far one of the best wedding venues in the Texas Hill Country and one of my favorites to shoot at. Everything there is just plain gorgeous! The massive chapel and hall are unlike any other venue I’ve seen. The space is huge but it also has a very warm and inviting feel. It’s not just the size either, the details are just as good! Little things like gorgeous, worn steel doors matched beautiful wood doors. All the groovy light light fixtures, the window details, all the way to the tables. It sounds silly but everything is as it should be. I can walk into countless venues (great venues!) and you can almost always pick out something that needs to be fixed, that is a little tattered or is just off somehow but not at Old Glory. It’s beautiful from a distance and up close! It really is a photographer’s dream to be able to shoot there.
A pretty building with equally amazing grounds is only half the story. What really makes me want to come back again and again is the staff. They are top flight. I have shoot literally hundreds of weddings and the people you surround yourself with on your wedding day is so important. You don’t want just good, competent people; you want awesome! You want people that are really, really good at what they do AND you want them to be really, really nice and caring while they are doing it. This what sets Old Glory apart from so many other venues out there; their incredible team. I can’t wait to go back soon!
