El Rancho del Amor

First off, I have to apologize to you all for my absence from the blog for the past couple of months. I told myself I would write at least once a month, and here I am two months later.

I will say, however, there is good reason for the delay. We just ended Hamburger Farm a few weeks ago and of course that kept us busy. But while all that was going on, construction on a new area at the farm has been in progress. For me personally, this is by far one of my favorite projects we’ve ever done. Now you may be surprised by this, because we have done quite a few really great things, but this one is particularly close to me. Back in December, as my family and I started planning my upcoming 4th of July wedding, my dad took me out to a spot on the farm that he had a vision for. We sat by one of the oldest oak trees on our farm and talked about what we could do to the area to create a beautiful spot for an outdoor ceremony location. Now, 6 months later, my father and brother are creating the wedding ceremony location of my dreams.

When I was growing up I never thought that I would be getting married on the farm, I wanted to be different I didn’t want to do what everyone assumed I would do. I realized though, that it wasn’t about what people assumed I would do, it was about getting married at a place that was my past and is now my future. Thanks to my dad’s ability to imagine magical landscapes, we are creating a venue that not just my fiancé and I will get to start our marriage at, but hopefully many others.

For those of you who follow our Facebook, you probably remember a post about our new wedding venue services. I am happy to say that this new ceremony location will be available in that package for everyone to enjoy. We haven’t decided exactly what we will do with the space in the fall time, but you will all get to enjoy its view if you take a ride on the train. If you are interested in using this space for your wedding, stay tuned for pictures coming to you after the 4th of July. 🙂 In the meantime, here are some construction pictures for you to see our work in progress.


Happy wedding planning!
