Weddings and Special Events

Our Vision brings your dream wedding to life

Welcome to Gladewater Ranch, the most special wedding venue in Texas, where your dream wedding can come true. Our estate is owned and operated by two best friends, Blake DeWitt and Blaz Korosec, and their wives Kiara and Bolton, who share a passion for providing couples with the gift of a beautiful wedding. Kiara and Bolton share the same dream of having a perfect wedding venue, and their dedication to making Gladewater Ranch a family-owned and operated business is reflected in every aspect of our services.

What sets Gladewater Ranch apart is our commitment to providing a country charm that’s surrounded by tall trees, creeks, and fresh air, making it an authentic country life experience. Our estate is situated on 145 acres of ranch and forest, just below Lake Gladewater. The estate is filled with beautiful deer, and a creek flows behind the house, making it a picturesque location for your special day. We want to create memories that last a lifetime for our clients and their guests.

Gladewater, Texas, has a rich music history. The estate was originally built in 1975 and has a rich history of hosting weddings over the years. The original owner’s daughter was the first to get married on the property, being the daughter of an oil tycoon and local legend Jack Phillips, and she chose Gladewater Ranch as the location for her big day. At Gladewater Ranch, we have kept the estate’s mid-70s charm and design while making necessary updates that bring joy and an experience that is candidly timeless.

Located just beyond the DFW Metroplex, less than two hours east of Dallas and only 20 minutes east of Tyler, Gladewater Ranch is a hidden gem that offers an unforgettable wedding experience. We take pride in being a part of your celebration and ensuring that every detail is taken care of, so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy your special day. Book with us today, and let us help make your wedding day the happiest day of your life!
