Next up....The Barndominium!

Next up in our lineup of lodging options is also on-site! Just steps from the venue is our Barndominium (we have nicknamed it "The Barndo"). The Barndo is included in most Saturday packages and can be added to any package that does not have the Barndominium lodging included, even Sundays and extended stays before or after your big day, dependent on availability!

It sleeps 30+ between its 7 bedrooms, and each bedroom has a bathroom attached. There are even 2 downstairs bedrooms that have access to both the common areas and the outdoors which are great for families or older guests that might want more privacy. In the common areas, there is a large 80in television with cable, surround sound bluetooth speakers, dining table, and a full kitchen. We provide all paper goods and cooking utensils including plates, cups, a full coffee bar, and pots and pans to cook up a good meal to fuel up before the crazy day...or sneak in for a late night snack when the crazy day is over! 

Maryann and Miguel with San Angel Photography are the sweetest EVER and they took some awesome snap shots of The Barndo. Head on over to the newest page on our website to see the rest of these great pics.

Last but not least...Airbnb's!

When you fill up these 30+ sleeping spots, we can point you toward some great Airbnbs that are only about a mile away and a short drive to Peach Creek Ranch. These houses are great to rent if your family is out of town, and even if they are in town, it is so wonderful to have your friends and family as close as possible on one of the biggest and most special days of your life! 

Whether it is The Cottages already included in your package, The Barndo you would like to add to your package or have questions about, or these Airbnb's you would like to rent...these are all awesome options for you, your friends, and your family!

Feel free to reach out to us with any questions you might have. We are always here for any Peach Creek Ranch couple or any couple who has their eye on booking us for their wedding. 

As always, stay peachy!!!

Carrington + Grant

The Winkelmanns

{03.04.18}

Hi lovelies! Katie checking in here!! It has been such a fruitful season for us out here and we are so excited that it is nowhere near slowing down. We have had beautiful wedding after after beautiful wedding, a chunky six month old, and so many new developments going on around the venue. We are putting up a new fence, more parking, lights went up under our pavilion, and there are things we are cooking up behind the scenes around here...stay tuned for more updates from us! We had such a fun family photoshoot this week with Ashley Monogue and we cannot WAIT to share those pics with you. She is so talented and so so fun to work with. 

We also cannot WAIT to share our newest Real Wedding with you guys...the Winkelmanns! Carrington and Grant were overflowing with love for one another at their March wedding. They were so sweet to each other and everyone around them all day, and you could really tell they radiate that joy every other day of their lives too. They were a dream to work with and we are so excited to show their sweet story and gorgeous photos taken by the lovely Audrey Spiars with you.

Are you swooning as much as we are?! They are SO. PRECIOUS.

Before the ceremony kicked off the day's celebrations, Carrington and Grant were able to get ready in our cottages where they were able to celebrate with their favorite people. They ate, drank, and were so merry! The two love birds chose to exchange gifts on the morning of their wedding and their reactions were just the sweetest. Their awesome team helped them set everything up for their reception in our barn with the cutest decor!

Their bridal party was seriously so fun and were so supportive of Grant and Carrington all day! After the soon-to-be Winkelmanns and their team were done getting everything setup and getting pampered, it was time to get these two down the aisle!!! Due to a rainy forecast, they chose to have their ceremony under our pavilion. With our new string lights and their beautiful greenery, it was such a cozy ceremony overlooking our pond.

Grant and Carrington really know how to throw a great party! Their wedding reception was oh so fun!! Their families showered them with love over toasts, shared dances with them, and watched on as they cut their simply elegant cake,

This is what Carrington had to say about her wedding experience:

"Man, we don’t have enough good words to say about our experience having Peach Creek as our venue. Not only was the venue designed with every detail in mind to help make the day go smooth, but the people!! The people at peach creek were the most helpful, patient, servant hearted people in the wedding industry. Our plan A was to have the wedding by the lake but as the clouds blew in we moved under the pavilion and not a single bit of the magic was lost. We LOVED having our ceremony under the pavilion with the dreamy string lights. Seriously everything was perfect and we couldn’t recommend Peach Creek enough. Our guests have been raving about the place ever since."

This Sunday wedding was seriously dripping in joy and fun! It was truly a pleasure to be able to watch the love these two share on the biggest day of their lives!

{3.25.18} 

Hey y'all! Things have been picking up in full steam around here. We have our Open House in the works, a growing baby, and weddings on weddings! 

We have been so looking forward to featuring one of our special March weddings on our Real Wedding series! Christina and Trey were married at Peach Creek Ranch in College Station on March 25th and their Aggie wedding was absolutely gorgeous!!! After Christina and Trey finished setting up and getting ready, they shared a "first touch" with each other before they said "I Do". This day was full of such sweet moments, followed by such a fun party! 

Christina & Trey spent the morning getting ready with their close friends and family in our cottages and Christina shared a sweet moment with her father and soon-to-be hubby!

They had the most precious little helpers to help them walk down the aisle.

One of our favorite parts of any wedding is watching the groom as his beautiful bride walks down the aisle. The love these two have for each other is so obvious!

These two definitely know how to have fun! They shared a sweet first dance, cut into their beautiful wedding cake, and spent the evening sharing their loved one's company as they partied the night away!

The night ended with the Aggie War Hymn, a staple down here at College Station weddings for us Aggies!

Christina shared with us her thoughts on her wedding experience at Peach Creek Ranch! We are so grateful to have crossed paths with this adorable couple, and we were so honored to be a part of their big day. We wish Christina and Trey so many more happy years to come! 

"Peach Creek Ranch was the first Wedding venue me and my husband toured and we were blown away by how gorgeous it was. Not only was the venue perfect but Katie and Ryan were such genuine people to work with. They truly cared about our big day and assisted us with any help we needed. I can't think of one thing that went wrong, it was a dream come true. Everyone is still talking about how beautiful this venue was and its been a month since the wedding!! I cant thank Peach Creek Ranch enough for making our day so magical"

Hannah + John 

{1.6.18}

Hey y’all!! We are so excited to be filling up this blog page again with another one of our GORGEOUS Peach Creek Ranch couples…Hannah & John! The holidays were a crazy season for us with Christmas parties, sorority events, and just having a NEW BABY right before Thanksgiving (who is so precious, by the way). Thank you for bearing with us and coming back for more from the Peach Creek Ranch team!!!

Hannah & John were a dream to work with from day one and actually signed at Peach Creek Ranch way before their wedding date when we didn’t even have a completed venue…the trust these two had in us was amazing! Hannah was even one of our interns in the early days, and one of our “friendors” (a vendor who has also become a dear friend) because she owns Vine and Branches Productions. She creates gorgeous wedding videos and comes highly recommended from us! In short, we love Hannah and John and have had the privilege and pleasure of watching their love grow through this crazy planning process. Being a part of their big day and seeing their affection for one another on their wedding day was truly a treat. They love so well, and not to mention their wedding was B-E-A-UTIFUL. We just couldn’t resist sharing them with the world!

Hannah & John were able to arrive the day before their wedding and make sure everything was perfect for their wedding day! Their wedding was adorable from the customized Nike's Hannah wore to the yummy donut tower and cocoa bar and all the decor in between. 

On the morning of their wedding, they both were able to relax, get ready and pampered, and enjoy a "first touch" with each other to calm their nerves. Not to mention Hannah's sweet family taking part in a "first look" with her...can you blame them for tearing up?! She's a vision!

Then it was finally time to get these two hitched!!! This handsome couple enjoyed a beautiful ceremony, and then were able to take some gorgeous photos....and some silly ones too with each other and their bridal party. What we love most about this couple is their light-hearted nature and how fun they were to be around! You can definitely see that in these photos!!

Then it was time to party the night away before we sent Hannah & John off with a sparkler exit! Their wedding party and guests were the BOMB and were so so so fun, partying the night away!! 

Hear what the new Mrs. Neville had to say about her big day!

"For me Peach Creek Ranch made me feel like I was right at home. Everyone is so welcoming and excited for your special day even though y’all host a wedding every weekend, the excitement is always fresh! I love this venue as a vendor as well because I have gotten to work a lot of events at the venue and I feel like the setup is perfect. Everyone that was helping to set up LOVED the fact that the 48 hour package allowed us to use all day Friday to set up the reception decor and made Saturday morning so much easier for us! My girls and I loved the bridal suite and loved how roomy it was. John and his guys liked getting to have their own space as well with the grooms suite! Everything was set up so perfectly and our guests cannot stop talking about how beautiful the venue was. I would rate PCR a 100/10 with how great everything and everyone was to us!"

--Hannah Neville-- 

All in all, this night was one for the books. The love was overflowing and the party was one we will never forget! We want to give a huge shoutout to all of their awesome vendors who made this day possible.

MACI + RYAN

{07.17.17}

Hi lovelies! Today we have a stunning couple to show off. Maci + Ryan Kaiser were married at Peach Creek Ranch on July 17th, and we are obsessed with their decor, their photos, and THEM! We just had to feature them on our blog!

We could not get enough of Maci + Ryan, and we were just over the moon to hear from Maci about her wedding journey. We thought what she had to say was the perfect insight to the wedding planning process and her unique Sunday wedding experience!

Here's what she had to say:

     "So the first thing Ryan and I did as far as planning was scope out venues. We knew this would be crucial as far as setting a date and location and wanted to get it done ASAP. Our hometowns are about 2.5 hours apart, and we didn't want it to be too far of a drive for anyone. College station is somewhat in the middle of both of our hometowns and we are both graduates of Texas A&M, so a College Station wedding just made sense. We looked around at venues in the area, and PCR was love at first sight for us. It has the country with the barn while still being very elegant and just overall stunning. From the outdoor area to the chandeliers in the barn to the amazing cottage areas, it was all just perfect. Not to mention, the owners just make you feel like you are at home as soon as you step on the property. So, we eventually decided to go with PCR, despite having to have our wedding on a Sunday because the Saturdays were all booked up! Totally worth it!

    Then we went through the whole process of making a guest list and stressing about the guest list as it grew and grew! I found vendors for all of the big things and went wedding dress shopping.

    I got my dress at Weddings by Debbie in the Katy area and HIGHLY recommend it. They were extremely helpful and provided an overall wonderful experience.

    Ryan and I met with Petal Patch Florist in Bryan, with the intentions of meeting with others afterward, but we loved the owner and felt very confident that they would do a great job, so we didn't look anywhere else! Also Highly recommend them. 

    Whitney Gilmer was my photographer. I met her at Impact camp just before we began college at A&M. Although we weren't friends throughout college, we were social media friends (you know how that goes). She began her photography business while we were in college and I fell in love with her work. It's just my style. Her photos are bright, joyful, natural, and always tell a story! Although she was new to the wedding industry, I knew she would be perfect...and she was! She is the sweetest person and makes photo shoots natural and fun! 

    Vine and Branches was recommended to us through PCR. Hannah was very new and very young, but you absolutely cannot tell from the wonderful job she did on our video. And she edited so quickly!! Loved working with her!

    I found my hair/makeup artist through PCR's open house. Blush'd Beauty was there and had just had a wedding cancel the weekend of our wedding, so it was definitely fate! Makael and her team do amazing work for both hair andmakeup! All 9 bridesmaids were happy with how their hair turned out, which is a large task to accomplish!

    My amazing Aunt actually made my cake! She has been making my birthday cakes since I was a baby and I knew she would to a wonderful job on my wedding cake. Plus why spend money? It turned out AMAZING! It both looked beautiful and tasted like heaven! I had so many people compliment that cake! What's funny is, my aunt was apparently super upset during the wedding because on her way to the venue one of the layers fell over/ fell apart, so it was 1 layer less than what it was supposed to be! I didn't notice and no one else knew though, so really she had nothing to worry about! She also made the bobber cakeballs on the groom's table! They turned out perfect and were a hit!

    The delicious food was provided by family friends of mine who have been in the catering business for as long as I can remember. I knew that our wedding, with 275 guests, was going to be a challenge for them, but they worked so hard and made it happen! It was awesome!

    So as we got closer to the wedding, I actually got really stressed, which is so unlike me! But there was just so much on my shoulders, and little details that had to be taken care of. We took it one day at a time though and luckily I had my mom, Ryan's mom, and my MOH Heather to help when things got crazy! We were literally painting table numbers, making the seating chart, printing pictures and buying frames the week of the wedding!! CRAZY! Do not recommend! 

    The wedding day started out nothing less than stressful TBH. Other than the fact that my bridesmaids woke me up with coffee and some time of worship in our hotel room which was just what I needed! The stressful things was getting everyone to the venue in time for hair and getting people to help with setting up the barn. Thankfully PCR takes care of the chairs, tables and table cloths, but I honestly ran out of the cottage soooo many times to set stuff up in the barn myself... not ideal. I set up table numbers, pictures, signs, candles... when I would have liked to have been in the cottage enjoying the morning with the ladies. 

    Other than that though, everything just kinda fell together. I know it was all thanks to the the day of coordinators from All Things Planned. They had it all together and were such a blessing throughout the day as they ensured that everything was running smoothly and that Ryan and I had everything we needed. I would not suggest attempting a wedding without them. Whether it was running to the cottage to get my veil for pictures or letting us know it was time for cake, they were on top of it and we knew we did not have to worry about a thing and could enjoy our wedding celebration. 

    Because it was a hot July day, we were very thankful for the "rain plan" covered patio that PCR has. You get the same beautiful view while not having to endure the sun's scorching rays. And can you believe we were able to seat 275+ guests out there!? 

    One of my favorite moments of the day was when it was time to leave. Ryan and I are both redass Aggies. We love football games and the Aggie spirit. So, after our final dance, the DJ put on the song that the football team runs out to and we ran through the whole barn, holding hands, (so fun) and went through the doors where our guests were lined up outside waiting for us, waving 12th man towels. It was just the most fun and and joyous way to end the night! I LOVED every second of it."

We LOVED every second of having Maci + Ryan host their wedding at Peach Creek Ranch. Our couples truly make our hearts swell. They are reason we do what we do.

Another huge thanks to all of the Kaiser's amazing vendors. {Petal Patch, Blush'd Beauty, Whitney Gilmer Photography, All Things Planned, Vine and Branches Productions}

Until next time...stay peachy!

Tablescapes, settings, and centerpieces...oh my!

Hellooo beauties! We have had so many amazing table settings out at Peach Creek Ranch we just HAVE to show off!! Our brides have really done some amazing things with their decor with the help of our coordinator and their amazing vendors. We know sometimes you need a little inspiration to get those wedding planning juices flowing, so here are our some of our fave tablescapes to really stir that creativity!

1. Dark & Elegant

This wedding was right around Valentine's day and it was full of roses and romance. We love these tall, dramatic rose centerpieces surrounded by perfectly placed table settings wrapped in red. The dark shade of the table cloth really brings out those pops of color and hints of shine in the mirror and the napkin rings. We can't get enough!

2. A Touch of Sparkle

Chanel & Jon's wedding decor was so precious everywhere! Go check out our blog featuring their wedding from our "Real Weddings" series to see more! We especially adore their sweet tablescape. It had the perfect amount of pink and just the right touch of that gold sparkle with their table runner. They also had adorable wooden hearts strewn around their gorgeous floral centerpiece to add a touch of personalization. Those origami rose napkins and twisted chair covers really took these tables to the next level.

3. Green & Gorgeous

Kayla & Lane's tables were full of greenery and elegance. We are in LOVE with their sweetheart table adorned with those precious "Mr. & Mrs." block letters in between that beautiful floral arrangement. They used a long rectangular arrangement for their head table, complete with candles and more of that greenery we love so much! Their guest tables were simple yet decadent with gold chargers, candles, and smaller floral arrangements perched in the center. Kayla & Lane have also been featured on our "Real Weddings" series...go check them out for even more beautiful wedding inspiration!

4. Rosy Rustic Chic

We were floored when we saw the way these tables were transformed with this adorable decor. The wood slab centerpieces with mason jar floral arrangements bring the perfect touch of rustic while the gold plates and DIY re-purposed wine bottles give it a nice chic spin. The texture element from the sweetheart table cloth really brings the decor to a new level! And aren't those mason jars so cute...guests got to take them home at the end of the night!

5. Perfectly Personalized

Haley & Drew's wedding was beautifully designed from beginning to end, but we especially loved their table settings. Their head table, for starters, was absolutely gorgeous with that subtly sequined navy table cloth and beautiful greenery behind them on our barn doors and their centerpiece. They chose to use two of our vintage chairs to continue the hues of blue throughout their decor. The earthy feel carried over into their guest table centerpieces with the wood slabs and greenery. We were so in love with their personalized touches. Haley & Drew met in a college town, and each table was adorned with a different street name from that town. HOW CUTE?! The personalized touches didn't stop there, however. We were swooning all over again at the adorable picture at each table setting.

Thanks so much for stopping by our blog! We have loved looking back on these gorgeous weddings. Every wedding at Peach Creek Ranch is so different, and we hope that you have gotten some inspiration from all sorts of different tastes and types of table settings! Check back next time for another featured wedding!

Until next time, stay peachy!!!

Heather + Nick

{05.28.17}

Hi y'all!!! Katie here! We have been dying to show you guys our next featured wedding, Heather and Nick. They were married on a cloudy day in May but the love was surely still shining through for these lovebirds. The overcast skies made the perfect backdrop for their photographers at Two Pair Photography to capture these deep shots full of playful light and warm color. These two definitely didn't need any help keeping their spirits high and being lively and fun on their big day. I mean...LOOK AT THEM!!! So. Gorgeous.

Heather and Nick started their day by spending a relaxing morning with their families and their wedding party getting ready for their big day!

After they were pampered and prettied up, their photographer took them around the Peach Creek Ranch grounds finding the most perfect spots to snap these dreamy pics of their groomsmen and bridesmaids. We have some gorgeous natural areas on our property perfect for earthy photos like this one of Nick and his guys. But we do love those classic shots in front of our barn too!! How gorgeous are Heather and Nick and all of their wedding party!? We were swooning all day at the beauty of this wedding and the people in it!!!

 SWOON!!!

SWOON!!!

Before it was time to walk down the aisle, Heather and Nick paused in the midst of the wedding craziness to share this beautiful moment together. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and this picture definitely speaks for itself. We have so many great spots to share a first look or a first touch like Heather and Nick! Our barn doors at the reception hall made a perfect backdrop for this special moment. 

 We can't get over these beauties!              

We can't get over these beauties!              

Then it was time for one of our favorite moments...the "I Do's"!!! Heather and her father got to take a special moment before we opened the barn doors for her big reveal. These are the moments that make this line of work so worth it. Watching a father get emotional over his little girl getting married is oh so special and we love being silent spectators to these moments and so many more.

One of my absolute favorite parts of any wedding is looking at the groom's face as his bride is walking toward him. Just look at the look on Nick's face as Heather was walking down the aisle. PRECIOUS!!! This wedding was drenched in love and magic and that first kiss shows that for sure! Their ceremony was definitely worth celebrating, and Heather had to give a lil cheer as she walked back up the aisle with her new husband!!!

Then it was time to PARTAY! This wedding was dripping in gorgeous glitter and gold. This couple turned our reception hall into a stunning backdrop to party the night away! Everything was so tasteful and b-e-a-utiful...we have been daydreaming about this decor since June!!!

 So. Sparkly!!!

So. Sparkly!!!

 These table settings were simple but gorgeous with accents of peach (our favorite) and gold!

This couple and their wedding guests truly did know how to party. . .they totally danced the night away, played fun games, and shared in laughter and love. It was SO. FUN. We especially loved Heather and Nick playing the shoe game! They were asked questions like "who is messier," "who is a better cook," and other fun questions, and the bride and groom hold up the shoe for the person that corresponds with what they think the answer is. There was so much laughter, and we were definitely in stitches at this game!

Heather reached out to us after her wedding weekend and brought tears to my eyes! She is the absolute sweetest, and we just had to share her lovely words with y'all!!!

"Y'all made our big day so incredibly perfect for me and Nick, and all of our family and friends. The venue you created was our dream venue, and every detail that yall thought of did not go unnoticed. I am sure yall put in unimaginable hours to make our day perfect (and the days for all the other lovely couples), and we are truly grateful. Having yall there the day of the wedding making sure everything went smoothly was amazing. I didn't have to worry about anything that day except walking down the aisle to my husband! It was so evident that both of you truly care about all of the people and love that come through PCR, and I love and appreciate that. Y'all are amazing people, keep doing what you do!" -Heather Hermann

We just LOVED working with Heather, Nick, their families and their amazing vendors! We just want to take a minute to say "thanks and gig 'em" to all of the people who made this day so special!

Kayla + Lane

{06.04.17}

Hey hey everyone!!! We are loving our new Real Weddings Series on our blog, and we are so excited to feature one of our June weddings today. Kayla and Lane had a fairy tale wedding. It was truly beautiful from beginning to end! All of this magic was captured by the amazing photographer beauties, Marissa and Lauren, at ML Photo + Film.

Can you see why we are absolutely swooning over this bride and groom?! Kayla and Lane brought so much beauty and wedding magic to our venue, and it was such a joy to host their wedding at Peach Creek Ranch!

As Kayla was being pampered and Lane was hanging in the Groom's Cottage, Marissa took some shots of the details that made this wedding so gorgeous! We definitely recommend that you have these details captured on your wedding day. There is so much time that goes into planning for these little details, and it is so fun to look back at all of your hard work and your beautiful wedding.

 We especially love the shot of Kayla's wedding dress. Isn't it so gorgeous?!

Now, onto one of our favorite moments from this oh so special wedding day. Kayla and Lane chose to be traditional and not see each other on their big day. However, they opted for a "First Touch." This is such a sweet way to share an intimate moment with your partner before you make your vows. They read love letters and shared lots of love and laughs before they walked down the aisle. We love First Looks as well, but this moment brought something so magical to our venue.

How can you not fall in love with this adorable couple after those pictures?! After their First Touch, it was time to walk down the aisle for these two love birds. This couple shared their wedding day with a few rain clouds, but they didn't let that stop their fun. They opted to have their ceremony under our covered pavilion overlooking the lake, and it was as magical as ever.

The sun came out as they said their vows and shared their first moments as husband and wife. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful ceremony for Kayla & Lane Bannwart! Now, the most fun part of any wedding...THE PARTY!!! We are absolutely in LOVE with the way this couple chose to decorate our reception hall. It was full of soft tones, beautiful metallic accents, and rustic but chic decor. 

Kayla and Lane kicked off their reception with their first dance! We love seeing how the room comes to a stop when all eyes go to the bride and groom for this breathtaking moment. The night continued with more partying, including a special wedding rendition of the Aggie War Hymn! The night ended with a sparkler exit worthy of a fairy tale! 

We loved watching this wedding day from beginning to end and loved even more that we got to work with Kayla and Lane in the days and months leading up to their wedding! From the day they signed with us, we knew this would be a special one, and this magical day definitely did not disappoint! Even after their wedding, Kayla is still keeping touch with us. We were floored when she sent us these comments after her big day!!

"Peach Creek Ranch served as the perfect venue for our wedding! Part of what originally sold us on PCR, apart from Katie and Ryan's sweet personalities, was their rain plan. I am so glad we booked a venue that didn't just have a mediocre plan B, but offered a truly magical alternative. To be perfectly honest, I'm glad it rained!! It was such a beautiful backdrop to our ceremony, and it made way for a gorgeous sunset afterwards. 

From the very start of the day, Peach Creek Ranch went above and beyond my expectations of a venue. The cottages were beautiful, spacious, and relaxing, the ceremony site was breathtaking, and the reception area added to it all (hello, gorgeous chandeliers)!" 

-Kayla Bannwart

As always, this big day would not have even been close to possible without Kayla & Lane's awesome vendors!

{5.13.17}

Hi guys! Katie & Ryan here to show off one of our gorgeous Peach Creek Ranch couples. We love highlighting our amazing couples, photographers, and vendors that we have the pleasure of hosting out at Peach Creek Ranch. Chanel and Jon brought a lot of love, fun ideas, and awesome vendors out to our venue on their wedding weekend, so it only makes sense that they are our featured wedding for this blog post! All images featured in this post were taken by their AMAZING photographer, John, at All Heart Photography. The day was coordinated by our super star coordinators at All Things Planned. 

Chanel and Jon Hicks were married on May 13th, 2017. It was a magical day full of love, joy, and laughter. Chanel and Jon were the sweetest couple and it was so evident how much love they shared. The weekend was magical from beginning to end, and it began on Friday when the lovely couple and their family and friends began decking our venue out with the their decor, followed by a rehearsal dinner out at Peach Creek Ranch. We love all of the personal touches and adorable ideas Chanel and John brought to their wedding day!

 Adventure truly does await these two!

After Chanel and John were ready to get hitched, they had a beautiful service at St. Mary's in College Station. On their way back to Peach Creek Ranch, they made a quick stop on campus to take a few classic picture under the Century Tree. Aren't these Aggies way too precious?!

 The Century Tree on Texas A&M University's campus is very special to the students and alumni. Tradition says that if a couple walks under the special tree, their love will last a lifetime. We have no doubts about the Hicks.

Then, it was back to Peach Creek Ranch to party the night away! The newly wedded Hicks and their guests brought the fun to their reception. Guests were constantly dancing, the music was bumping, and Chanel and John were living it up on their first night as a married couple. It was such a lively night celebrating such a lovely bride and groom!

Even though the party was poppin', Chanel and John managed to sneak away for a moment to soak it all in as they sat by the lake and took some unforgettably gorgeous photos. These moments were surely the sweetest of the night. We always hope our Peach Creek Ranch couples are able to take a break to appreciate the wedding and the love they have created. We love that Chanel and John got to share these precious memories. Then, it was back inside to finish the night with a last dance and a classic sparkler send off.

After their wedding, we reconnected with this lovely couple to check in, and our hearts were overflowing with the love they gave to us and to Peach Creek Ranch. 

"We signed with PCR before construction had really begun! We instantly fell in love with Katie, Ryan, and their dream. Trusting them was the best thing we could have ever done in planning our wedding. Our Wedding Day was BEYOND perfect! Every detail was captured, and our day flowed stress free. Katie referred us to reliable vendors and was always an email away if I was unsure of anything. Being a type A bride, I put a lot of effort into planning and I know my planning would was only as good as PCR's ability to follow through. Everything stayed on schedule and nothing that I wanted to do was forgotten. The PCR team are friendly, personable, and reliable.  They made sure my needs, and our families wants were taken care of. Everyone had a wonderful time and also fell in love with our venue. It provided a great space outside for kids and adults to just relax.  

I remember seeing the finished PCR, and every time I visit it still takes my breath away.  PCR is a wonderful space  filled with southern charm, surrounded by nature's beauty, and built on Aggie hospitality! 

PCR gave us the PERFECT Wedding Day!"

-Chanel & Jon

None of this would have been possible without Chanel & John's awesome vendors. We want to thank them all for doing such an amazing job!

Styled Shoots—What, Why & How?

Hey Y'all!

Today we wanted to shed some light on one of our most favorite parts of this industry, styled shoots. Styled shoots are a great way to get marketing materials for a myriad of different vendors. They are normally put together by coordinators, photographers, or venues to showcase their skills and/or products. We have had florists, vintage furniture rentals, makeup artists, hair stylists and more come out to Peach Creek Ranch along with some of our favorite photographers to capture the day! You can style brides, grooms, bridesmaids, or models to fill any of the roles. Sometimes these shoots even mimic real weddings, elopements, or bridal showers to make them seem more relatable to those viewing the images. It also works as great inspiration for brides-to-be looking to kick up their wedding style a notch.

These images can be used as great marketing tools for a business! It is a very low maintenance way to produce new material for websites and social media platforms. They are so low cost because you are using your own materials and everyone on the styled shoot usually donates their services for the day to be able to use the photos to their advantage. With multiple vendors coming together, vendors get some really great images at a very low cost to them. They also don’t require a lot of time! Just give each other an afternoon of your time and get back priceless images. Even better, they are images that these vendors tailored to their exact liking, and therefore they are not wasting precious time and money on a shoot they do not prefer. One of the other huge reasons to do a shoot such as this is to also attempt to get published on a wedding blog or publication, which can do wonders for your image!

If you are a vendor and are interested in doing a styled shoot, we would love to have you out to Peach Creek Ranch! Step one would be to partner with multiple different vendors to set up the shoot that you have in mind. Choose what you would like the models to wear, what kind of florals will match best the venue and the subjects, and what type of lovely details you would like to incorporate. These all need to complement each other to make the most of the shoot for everyone involved.  Once you iron out those details the rest is just a wonderful creative session that can be a complete blast to be a part of. Then, you can contact us and set up a time that works for everyone and communicate with us the style you’re going for, and we would be happy to make it all work!  

Stay tuned for our next post. We will be updating you with our latest boho inspired styled shoot. We are sooo excited about this one! 

Love & Peaches, 

Katie & Ryan. 

The Peach Creek Ranch Experience

Hey PCR followers!

Katie & Ryan here, popping in to talk to you about the things that we feel make Peach Creek Ranch so special to us and to our brides.

There are some exciting changes happening out here, and we are SO excited to share them with you! You know about our awesome bride and groom’s cottages, but we have recently started construction to add additional lodging in our barndominium just steps from the venue. Our 2018 couples and beyond will be able to sleep 30+ people in this new luxury lodging. This is great for out of town guests or attendees that don't want to drive after two nights of celebration. Our lodging package truly allows each couple, their bridal party, and their families, to soak in the wedding the worked so hard to plan.

We are also over the moon about another big move we have made out at Peach Creek Ranch! We have partnered All Things Planned to provide each bride with a comprehensive day-of coordination package. This is included and paid for by Peach Creek Ranch to ensure that each bride and groom have the smoothest wedding day possible.

While each bride has all of All Things Planned at their disposal, Julianne Percy will be the lead coordinator designated to all Peach Creek Ranch weddings. We LOVE having Julianne on her team. She is a go-getter with a positive attitude who makes sure every moment of your wedding is stress-free and full of love!

All Things Planned will contact each couple 6 weeks out from your wedding to create timelines and floorplans, collect information for all of your wedding day vendors, and make sure that there are no details that go overlooked. On the day of, Julianne and All Things Planned are your wedding day warriors! You will be taken care of every step of the way, and any need you may have will be filled by staff from both Peach Creek Ranch and All Things Planned.

Ryan & I believe that the entire weekend of your wedding should be a stress-free experience, full of celebration and memories made. This is why we offer our unique 48-hour package including on-site lodging for two nights and day-of coordination giving you plenty of time for decorating and preparing, rehearsal/ rehearsal dinner at the venue, and catching up with close friends and family.  This package is from Friday at 10 am to Sunday at 10 am to ensure that you have a memorable experience.

All of this is included in our package for just $12,000. There are no hidden fees, you can bring in whatever vendors you would like to use, and that of course includes lodging for 30 people on-site and the venue for a full 48 hours of peachy fun!

Booking your College Station wedding at Peach Creek Ranch. Part One. The Bridal Budget Blues Cured.


Hello Darlings!

If you aren’t familiar with us yet, I’m Katie and I am the proud owner (to be!) of Peach Creek Ranch. Right now I am simply the owner of a gorgeous pad of dirt- and next week a lovely piece of foundation! Never mind all those minor details, let’s talk about why booking with us during construction can “pay off” in the long run.

“But Katie! How in the world could I book a venue without it being standing yet?!”

Well, my blushing bride, don’t worry your pretty little head- I’ll tell you exactly why you should book your wedding at PCR during construction in this 3 part blog series.

I completely understand where you’re coming from. You’ve only been engaged five minutes and it feels like you’re already drowning in an expensive mess of photographers, caterers, DJs, bands, and maybe even crazy cool entertainment like belly dancers or magicians if you’re going all out. I know I can’t be the only one who likes magicians, y’all. Whatever your fancy, my first point to this blog series as to why you should book your 2017 College Station wedding at Peach Creek Ranch is Value.


Did you know that couples who live in College Station and have 200 to 300 people they want to party down with on their special day spend between $30,281 - $50,468 on average on their wedding ? I know. Crazy, right? For most people, that’s a generous down payment on a house! We’re here to make our part in that number a smaller percentage than most comparable venues. Our most expensive package, which includes having full reign of PCR from Friday to Sunday and lots of other delicious extras, is $8,000 for all of 2017/2018 bookings. Let’s say you we split that average wedding cost right in the middle at a healthy budget of $40,000. That leaves us sitting at around 18% of the cost of that wedding. And that’s for 48 full hours of Peach Creek Fun!! I mean really, you can’t put a price on that. Well, I guess you can, and that price is pretty ridiculously cheap at $8,000. (Introductory price only valid for wedding booked before May 2016 - does not include lodging for 30)

I probably do not have to tell you that this is a great value if you’ve been shopping around. We’re talking all tables included, all 600 chairs included (300 for reception & 300 for ceremony). We’re also going to do the dirty work of setting up and tearing down for you- that’s right. We’re going to pick up all of those empty shiner bottles after your uncle Steve left them out there on the dance floor, along with the other things he left on the dance floor- his ridiculously embarrassing version of the “Whip”, not the mention the “Nae Nae”. You go Uncle Steve, you do you.

 Everyone has an "Uncle Steve". This is mine. 

Everyone has an "Uncle Steve". This is mine. 

We are offering you this amazing rate for 2017 and 2018 because we want you to give us the benefit of the doubt. We may be at the beginning of this process, but for us this is the end of years of planning the perfect venue for our brides. We are making the sacrifice of starting out of the gate with low prices so that our brides can focus on a stress free, weekend long wedding with time to get every detail just right and not have to rush out or clean up at midnight. We believe everyone deserves the right to a stress free day.

Take the chance with our brand new venue- because with us it’s not a chance, it’s a sure thing. Plus, all these things make for happy brides and happy brides do not turn into Bridezillas, which works out well for everyone involved in this day.

Weekend-long wedding + no Bridezillas + lost cost= Bridal Bliss.

Peach Creek Ranch wants to start this journey with one goal in mind, getting you your perfect day. By booking early you can take advantage of these generous prices because we are the new kids on the block, but so eager to take this step with you.

Love & Peaches,

Katie.
