I've been a regular fixture at The Vineyards at Garden Ridge for several years. I sat down to try to count the number of weddings, proposals, rehearsal dinners, engagement parties and more that I've photographed there over the past few years and I gave up.
So I was saddened to read their announcement on their homepage last week. After 15 years they will be closing their doors. The owners have decided to move on to other adventures. So it's with a heavy heart that I write this salute to an amazing restaurant and the people who ran it. The food was so good my mouth waters at the thought of it. The venue was so beautiful. My hope is that some lucky individual or group of individuals will decide to take it on.
I'll miss Lindsey and her laid back but efficient approach to coordinating the weddings and events. I'll miss the guys who were so great about sneaking me a plate here and there when I got hungry or bringing me water during hot outdoor weddings. They were golden!
They'll close their doors at the end of this month. But the memories they created will live on. I was honored to be a part of their history.
