Red River Breaks Becoming a Wedding Destination

November 9, 2012

The BLCC has been developing a few new branches of operation over the past two years and Events are quickly becoming a popular activity here on the Ranch.  We started small in 2010 with facility rentals and progressed steadily toward parties catered by outside vendors.  In the Fall and Winter of 2011, we expanded to internally-catered events, hosting Muenster State Bank’s Chistmas Party and serving a custom-designed menu for the guests.  With each event, we learned new ways of improving the experience for our guests and, early in 2012, we started to book wedding receptions.

 Since the beginning of this year, the Red River Breaks has been the destination of five wedding ceremonies and seven wedding receptions, with one more on the books for November.  Couples and their families come in search of a unique, rustic, natural setting that balances class with home and the Ranch fits that bill exactly.

Removing the couches and chairs from the Great Room in the Lodge allows us to seat up to 75 guests indoors.

Wedding ceremonies have taken place in various settings on the Ranch, including the back porch, at the base of the front steps of the Lodge, at the Pond below the Lodge, and under one of our large oak trees here on the Ranch.  Each ceremony has been beautifully executed and unforgettable.

With Storybook Mountain and the valley below as the backdrop for the ceremony, the guests at this wedding sure had a visual treat!

 

The bride at this wedding was escorted down the Lodge’s front steps in grand fashion to her groom under the oak trees.

Receptions have ranged in size from 30 guests to 250 guests.  The versatility of the Lodge and the Ranch itself is remarkable and word of mouth travels fast.  The carport shifts beautifully into a dancefloor, where both live bands and DJs have played music long into the night.  The Lodge’s wrap-around porch and surrounding grounds offer a perfect balance between indoor and outdoor seating, eliminating concern for weather.   We hope to continue to expand our Wedding and Event operations in 2013 and if you or someone you know is interested in celebrating a wedding here on the Ranch, contact usto start planning today!

We have countless seating arrangements for guests, including this U-shaped, family style set-up.

 

With large groups, a buffet-style dinner service has been the most popular option. Although, we do offer served meals for smaller groups.

We offer a range of activities to the couple, their families, and their wedding parties during the weekend of their wedding.  Just this morning, a group of groomsmen went out on a doe hunt.  This afternoon, the entire wedding party is going out for skeet shooting.  We’ve also hosted a rehearsal dinner on the Red River Sandbar, complete with a bonfire, for a couple in September.

 Don’t forget, the Red River Breaks is perfect for any sort of party or event, not just weddings.  December is filling up fast with corporate holiday parties.  Contact us soon to reserve your date!
