our story

We have seen God use our ranch to be the home for innumerable special events and facilitate many memories.  Our desire is to provide a premier quality facility near the DFW metroplex, while maintaining the tranquility and beauty of the natural countryside. The venue has been designed to be flexible enough to host a Texas sized wedding and reception, as well as small intimate events.

We desire that your wedding be a true representation of your relationship and the covenant that you will both be entering into and want the setting to only be a beautiful accommodation of that. Our missions is to serve each bride and groom wholeheartedly and selflessly so as the spotlight remains on the celebration of the marriage. To many, Thistle Springs Ranch is just a “provincial, great place for a rustic ceremony”, but to us, it is far more. We pray that we are able to provide the same atmosphere and service that enables you to experience the start of a lifetime of memories together in the same way that we did.

We are a Christian family business that built Thistle Springs Ranch on Christian principles. We personally believe that the Bible is the infallible and inerrant Word of God that clearly states that marriage involves the union of one man and one woman in permanent sacred fidelity. Though various cultures and customs have evolving definitions of marriage, we believe that God alone has the ultimate authority to prescribe and describe the marital relationship as He has done repeatedly in Scripture.. (Genesis 2:24, Matthew 19:1-9, Mark 10:1-12)

While we personally disagree with the Supreme Court ruling making same sex marriages lawful, we understand that we are called to be obedient to the laws of our country’s governing authorities.(Romans 13:1)

Therefore, we want to extend the love of Jesus Christ to every person affording each the compassion, love, kindness, respect and dignity that Jesus loved us into His salvation with. All of us have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God and we are not called to be judge of anyone else’s sins. Jesus died on the cross to forgive our sins and it is by His grace that we are saved and not of any works on our own. Although, we want to be clear that we founded Thistle Springs Ranch on the Word of God to be used for His glory as men and women were joined together in holy matrimony, we are willing to accommodate all weddings as prescribed in our current legal system.

We hope that we have the opportunity to serve you during your wedding journey!
