Your Wedding Invitation

BobandGenieMy wife and I are honored that you are interested in having your wedding at our home place. Marriage is the most wonderful decision you can make. It honors God, your family, your future and America. It validates your genuine love for one another and sets the stage for a stable and loving home life.

My wife and I are committed to the home and family as set forth in the Bible. We believe God has ordained and created marriage to exist between one man and one woman. The Holy Scriptures set forth specific home and family values, which includes the distinct roles of husbands and wives, fathers and mothers, and children. It is our firm conviction that we uphold the dignity of each individual as we embrace the unchanging and longstanding principles of scriptural truth.

I grew up in this house. My parents were married 65 years and Genie and I have been married for 53 years. So you can see that we have relied upon the Christian vows that we made to bless our home. We want it to be a blessing to you.

At the Texas Forest Country Retreat, we can provide a complete array of services to make your special time the most memorable, significant and lasting event of your life.


Weddings in the Texas Forest Country!

We believe family is the bedrock of our lives together so we are excited to help you get a good start.   Weddings are our specialty! Whether you like an outdoor wedding by a beautiful lake shaded by a large oak tree, or an intimate elegant wedding in our chapel (that I converted from my mother’s wash house), your wedding will all come together to fulfill your wedding dreams. We can do it ourselves or arrange it with others – rehearsal dinners, dressing rooms, photography, horse and carriage, music, hair stylist, massage, places for the guys and places for the gals on wedding eve and a place you can put up your out of town guests. Finally, complete the event by spending part or all of your honeymoon in the very private and intimate Beaver Creek Lodge (just you and your new spouse with all the amenities of a fine home).
