7 Reasons to See Each other Before the Ceremony

        When I consult with our brides and grooms I always ask if they want to see each other before the ceremony for what's commonly known now as a "First Look". This is where the bride and groom privately see each other for the first time before their ceremony and their photographer is there capturing the sweet moment and emotions. When I ask our couples this question, there is usually a very real and immediate reaction either way. There is no right or wrong way what-so-ever, but this blogger has some very good reasons on why it might be the right decision for you and your groom!

5 Years of Wonderful Weddings!!

This month The Marquardt Ranch rejoices in five years of weddings with our terrific brides and grooms!! We have had such a pleasure going through the planning process with you and getting to share in your joys! So many of you have kept in touch and shared your next steps in life with us - purchasing a house, landing the big job, having your first child. We couldn't have asked for better couples to have worked with. 

We've been through many changes throughout the last five years as we learn, grow and expand. We opened with a venue available for rental, one full time employee, and a boss man. We quickly realized the need and added an in house wedding coordinator. Two years later we developed our in house Floral Department and added a conference room to the property. Soon after in house DJ's followed and the addition of the beautiful staircases to the bell towers.  

We are now thrilled to announce the launch of our in house catering, Cypress Grille at The Marquardt Ranch!! We have partnered with a very well-known restaurant in Boerne, Cypress Grille, and built them a kitchen here at ranch. Bride and Groom's can now be assured the freshest food possible will be served for their wedding because it is made on site! The quality in product and customer service they have come to expect from The Marquardt Ranch can now encompass their catering needs for their rehearsal dinners, bridal luncheons, wedding receptions and post wedding activities. 

We cannot wait to see what the next five years have in store for us and for our future brides and grooms!!
