With panoramic views of Lake Whitney and space to host up to 1,000 guests, the Bosque Resort Parsons Castle is the wedding venue every bride deserves. What began as a dream by owners, Stuart and Rebecca Parsons, has become a destination wedding spot that is unlike anything else in Central Texas.
“The owners had a vision to create a dream getaway, not only for themselves, but for people who visit the Lake Whitney area,” said Shelby Neal, sales and event consultant. “Their main goal was to build the castle, but they ended up building a restaurant, a motel, and a waterpark in the process.”
It took the couple 10 years to make their vision come to life, and now it is a palace that must be seen to be believed.
“The pictures don’t do it justice,” Shelby said. “To see it in person is a complete, drastic change. I know a picture is worth a thousand words, but in person there aren’t enough words to describe its beauty.”
Shelby encourages those who are interested in booking the castle for their wedding or event to schedule a tour with her as soon as possible because they are already booking up for the wedding season.
Not only does the venue offer breathtaking views of the lake, but it also offers the bride or anyone hosting an event at the Castle and their guests the chance to take advantage of one of the venue’s four luxurious suites. The suites are located on the second floor and can be rented for out-of-town guests. Each room is a little different, but boasts the same amenities: a king-sized bed, a jacuzzi tub and shower, flat screen TVs, and balconies with their own unique view of the lake. The Castle’s suites are exclusively for booked events only. There are also other rooms available for wedding and event guests at the owners’ nearby motel.
“We offer daily packages for weddings. The price of these packages varies in price depending on the day that you choose,” she said. “All of our daily packages include our tables, Chiavari chairs and the use
of our lawn.”
The Castle also offers an upscale catering menu and on-staff bartenders, security guards and parking attendants.
