We are native Texans that graduated from Texas A&M and had the opportunity to move to Waco with our two young daughters in 2015. We noticed this beautiful property just outside of town and felt a strong calling toward it. Many thoughts and prayers went into the concept of Gathering Oaks and the property was purchased in December 2016. With some inspiration from Chip and Joanna, we turned the property into a gorgeous vacation rental and venue. As guests began to arrive, it was clear that God had a hand in the property’s transformation. We love hosting weddings, as your dream completes ours!
