Destination weddings don’t have to be barefoot in the sand or even in a far off land. If a slower paced stateside affair is more your style, then consider heading out to the land of the ten gallon hat, Texas! Ranch properties make wonderfully beautiful backdrops to say “I do” on and often create an itinerary of alternative guest fun! How about an all-inclusive working ranch!?! Now we’re talking…this Texas luxury property serves up top notch food paired with adventurous activities and five star service. Ding, ding, ding…we have a winner! Picosa Ranch is a luxurious 2,800 acre ranch in Floresville, TX and is a fantastic domestic option for your destination wedding, or even your honeymoon! If you know your group wants to have a little fun without leaving all the luxuries of a resort and spa behind, they’ll certainly enjoy this ranch which offers all that, and more for intimate parties up to 42 and ages 1 to 101!Who knew you didn’t actually have to venture to Africa for a few zebra sitings? That’s right, this Texan destination isn’t all cows, they have exotic animals roaming the property for a fabulously entertaining photo safari pre-wedding or a “WOW” inducing portrait backdrop. Horseback riding trails, skeet shooting, fishing ponds and archery are plentiful too. Nobody will be bored at this destination wedding weekend!Of course, for the guests that prefer the comforts of a resort: spa treatments, golfing, lagoon-style pools and 24-hour gourmet food and beverage are ready and waiting for them. And who wouldn’t want to feel like a kid again and end the rehearsal dinner evening with s’mores around the campfire!? All of the above (and everything else we couldn’t fit into a post) would make for quite the perfect honeymoon compromise if one wears the adventure hat in the relationship, and the other prefers cocktails poolside. Be sure to check out Picosa Ranch’s website for the scoop on all the activities, accommodations and so much more!
