Michigan Destination Wedding in Texas

Harry and Rachel – 10/29/22

Why did we love it? These two cuties live in Michigan! Harry came and toured EPW on his own while on a business/recruiting trip to Austin – he is the head tennis coach at Michigan State University. Rachel was busy getting her doctorate back in MI, and trusted him completely to choose a venue. It was between us or a venue in Montana (they really wanted a destination wedding) – and we won out!! Alllll of their family and friends from Michigan and around the country flew in for a wedding weekend.

Harry’s dad is from Pakistan so they had Indian food for dinner, his mom passed away when he was younger and him and his brothers wore Halloween themed felt pocket squares (his moms fav holiday <3) . They were so laidback and decided to do “family photos” amongst their cocktail hour guests. This was a first, but the results were AMAZING! So much less stiff than the traditional family photos. These two wanted to lean into Halloween being the same weekend with subtle nods, like pumpkins down the aisle. They also had a costume rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding in Comfort, TX.

Their Reviews:

“Elm Pass Woods truly was the most magical wedding venue for our Wedding in October 2022! My now husband and I were looking for a unique, laid back, outdoorsy wedding vibe and this venue fit our needs perfectly. We also live out of town which can make finding local vendors tricky, but Alex gave us a list of all of her favorite vendors which made planning a breeze! Alex and her family were so supportive during our entire wedding process. Our guests are still talking about what a unique and amazing experience they had in Hill Country!” – Rachel

“We had our wedding at Elm Pass Woods in October 2022. Alex and Mike were so gracious in hosting and organizing our wedding. They went the extra yard in everything they do. They took care of every single detail and made our special day a breeze for us!

All of our guests had a blast at the wedding and they couldn’t stop talking about how beautiful the venue was. The tipi tents and hand-crafted tables are such a great touch and give the venue it’s own unique vibe.

You will not regret having your wedding at Elm Pass Woods! We are so happy we decided to get married there.” – Harry
