An intimate setting for tying the knot awaits at the Star of Texas, a bed-and-breakfast retreat five minutes from downtown Brownwood. The elopement package is a no-fuss choice for guests, as the hosts (one of whom is a minister) do all the work, providing a flower-and-herb bouquet, wedding cake, sparkling wine, and photography. Even better, you’ll stay in one of three lovely cottages hidden within hilly, thickly wooded grounds, providing ample privacy. A nature trail on the property winds through the oaks, where you might see birds, deer, turkey, rock formations, wildflowers, and bottle trees, the latter perfect for hiding love notes. Each cottage has its own hot tub and kitchenette. Lounge on the porch and enjoy an elaborate breakfast delivered to your door. Inquire about spa treatments and wine and cheese platters, too.
