When Alex and David said they wanted to get married at the family’s ranch in Page Springs, it came as no surprise. Alex had been raised going to a “ranch” with her family since she was a child, whether to a working cattle ranch or to the family’s Page Springs ranch.
The D.A.Ranch in Page Springs is divided into two areas, one a well-known wedding venue – The Lodge– and the second, a Petznick family getaway. The Lodge was not what Alex had in mind. Her vision became a reality and a venue was constructed in front of the old red barn and the ceremony was built in front of a beautiful tree, which became the theme of the wedding. The couple even “branded” the tree as part of their unity ceremony, adding to the very special day with family and friends.
