Trying to decide where to have your wedding? The Texas House has a suggestion.
On Thursday, the House voted 139-9 to designate Dripping Springs “the wedding capital of Texas” for the next 10 years.
The resolution, authored by Rep. Jason Isaac, touts Dripping Springs as an “ideal setting for joyous celebrations of matrimony” and states that “countless couples have selected Dripping Springs as the perfect spot to exchange the vows of matrimony and embark on a new life journey together.”
The Hill Country hamlet located 35 minutes from Austin has plenty to support this distinction, including a bevy of unique venues, from barns, dancehalls and ranches to mansions and distilleries. The laid-back vibe combined with those spectacular Hill Country sunsets does indeed make for an unforgettable place to get hitched.
If you do get married in Dripping Springs, you might as well stay for your honeymoon. After all, there’s lots of stuff to do. In recent years Dripping Springs has become a hub for alcohol aficionados who can take their pick between 15 area breweries, wineries and distilleries including Deep Eddy Vodka, Twisted X Brewing Co. and Treaty Oak Distilling Co. The food scene isn’t bad, either, featuring standouts like Crepe Crazy, Drippin Donuts and Stanley’s Farmhouse Pizza.
Will the Senate agree with the House’s decision? We’ll know soon. And even if they don’t, Dripping Springs is certainly a place to put on your summer bucket list, especially with Hamilton Pool now open again.
Who knows? Next time you go, you might just fall in love.
