Peacock River Ranch is where my family grew up. The property was purchased by my mother and father in 1995 and we went from a small house at the bottom of the hill to creating a home that my parents still live in today. A lot has changed, but the love remains.
Peacock Ranch Then and Now
I remember a point where Abbey and I were 12 and were swimming in the pool above a concrete deck. That same spot is now where vows are forged in time. Dad made the best Big Red ice cream. Imagine candy turning into cream and exploding with juicy redness.

Over the years the property has changed from a childhood home to a place where couples begin their own futures. The recreation barn where we held Halloween parties and air hockey tournaments is now the reception hall where new families dance together for the first time.

For Abbey and my’s birthday one year, dad decided to build us a dollhouse, in life size. We slept there once and decided we liked our rooms at the house better. Later on, it turned into the pool house so it could have some purpose. Then, when the wedding facility grew, it turned into the Peachick Suite, where the bride now prepares for her wedding.
The pasture has not changed much. Except for the edition of Longhorns.
The memories created on the property turn it into a magical place to be. Coming home is like being part of a story, not just our families, but everyone’s that joins this small place of history.
