Get Hitched at Silver Spur Resort: 5 Rustic Wedding Ideas You’ll Love

Posted: June 14, 2023 by Silver Spur Master

Let your free spirit fly when you “get hitched” at the Silver Spur Resort! Picking a venue can be one of the single most defining moments of your wedding day. Our facilities are perfect for fun-loving couples who want to incorporate their love of the great outdoors into one of the most special days of their lives. 

We pride ourselves on offering our signature country flair to every wedding that graces our Resort. Allow us to share a few rustic wedding ideas, beyond the beautiful Barn weddings we are known for!

Imagine, a peaceful country sprawl at sunset in an intimate setting, peppered with hay barrels and campfires. Your guests are in their country best, (boots and all!), joining the celebration of your union in a beautiful, yet rustic-style venue with the wafting smell of a deliciously catered meal of the ever-so-popular Texas barbeque. 

It paints quite a picture of the rustic country wedding of your dreams, don’t you think? And there’s so much more that we offer! Here are a few of our favorite rustic wedding ideas that bring an extra flair of country fun and excitement to your event:

The Chuckwagon Dinner

Perfect for a rehearsal dinner, welcome party, or a micro wedding reception, the chuckwagon is a mobile catering option that can be wheeled anywhere on the resort! There’s nothing quite like a casual campfire chuckwagon dinner with the people who you love the most. 

Welcome your wedding guests as they set up at one of our many lodging options (browse through them here) to help you celebrate your wedding all weekend! Or, invite the wedding party to a private dinner after your wedding rehearsal to get ready for the big day. No matter who you’re looking to share it with, the Chuckwagon Dinner Experience is one like no other!

Micro-Wedding Elopement Package

Not every wedding is big, and that gives it the opportunity to be a more intimate event with your closest friends and family. We have a wonderful elopement package for our micro-wedding couples that includes the use of our popular outdoor ceremony areas, and large Barn to host your reception. However, having a smaller wedding also gives you the option to get creative with our scenic outdoor spaces!

Picture a beautiful secluded space surrounded by western-style Conestoga wagons. Twinkling lights adorn the trees around you with the warm ambiance of firepits and wooden lanterns lighting the way, creating a perfect environment for up to 40 guests. Could you imagine having a cozy outdoor dinner reception served here? Or perhaps an after-party complete with s’mores, blankets, and storytelling around the fire?

Not only a prop for decorations, these Conestoga wagons also have a spacious interior and are available for lodging! With plenty of space to set up additional glamping options such as yurts, teepees, or tents nearby, your guests will be able to celebrate with you for more than just one evening. Check out all of our glamping options here

The Western Ranch House

If you’re looking for an option a couple of notches above glamping, allow us to introduce Durham’s Roost Ranch House. This Western-style house is perfect for housing your wedding party during the hustle and bustle of the wedding weekend! With 5 bedrooms, there is room for the bride’s entire wedding party or family! Click here to take a virtual tour of the house!

Enjoy a delicious cookout on the cowboy grill with friends and family for a casual, intimate dinner during your wedding weekend. (Not sure what a cowboy grill is? It’s basically a fire pit and grill combined!) With plenty of room to grill up your favorites, you’ll be able to serve a fantastic feast to celebrate your wedding.

Horse-drawn Carriages

What’s more romantic than a ride in a horse-drawn carriage around a picturesque Texas pond at sunset? Go ahead, we’ll wait 😉 There can’t be a better intimate touch to add to your very special day than experiencing a carriage ride with your favorite person – it’s a classic scene straight out of a fairy tale.

Through our network of amazing vendors, we can help organize almost any wedding dream your heart desires- including a horse-drawn carriage bringing you directly to the wedding arch where your true love awaits to recite their wedding vows in front of your family and friends.

Speaking of animals- We are pet friendly! Are your dogs a beloved part of the family? We would love to incorporate your fur babies into your wedding celebration. Tell us your ideas, and we’ll do our best to make it happen!   

Country Western Engagement Shoot

When you book your wedding with us at the Silver Spur Resort, you gain the use of the property for engagement photos as well! Pictures are worth a thousand words, and you deserve to have a lovingly crafted, memorable engagement shoot to swoon over for years to come. 

Our beautiful country landscape offers several scenic options to capture timeless, classic photos of your very special day. With backdrops of our Conestoga wagons, the peaceful serenity of our country pond, gorgeous large barn doors, and the barnyard garden, you are sure to find the perfect spot to capture the love you share with each other. 

Take advantage of this option for engagement photos, wedding photos, or even a bridal session! There’s a high possibility that you spent maybe a little more than you should have on that wedding gown… you should photograph the hell out of it. 😉
