Since Katie's family heritage ties back to Schulenburg & Hallettsville they decided to look for venues in the area. Katie was born in Halletsville and attended kindergarten in Weimar. After a short search, they stumbled across the Barn at Piano Bridge Road. This venue is a Bed and Breakfast/renovated-barn combination located on 100-acres outside Schulenburg. Schulenburg is the hometown of Katie's maternal grandparents and great-grandparents, so it holds a special place in her heart.
Katie said "My grandmother currently lives in Hallettsville which is located about 15 miles south, and not-so coincidentally, is also where I was born. Even though I moved away from Hallettsville when I was 6, I will forever think of Hallettsville and Schulenburg as “home”.

" a beautiful Texas October evening, surrounded by 100 year old Oak trees, good food, good wine, and of course, your closest friends and family. Absolute heaven"!
