What to Expect

Our retreat is an experience for couples that incorporates presentations, videos, writing exercises, experiential activities, games, and discussion for the optimal learning and connecting experience. During this time, you will have the opportunity to connect with other couples, as well as have alone-time with your partner to explore: 

  • Strength and growth areas of your relationship

  • Understanding and meeting your partner's needs

  • How to support your partner

  • Conflict management

  • How to maintain a solid friendship

  • Vow writing with therapist and celebrant, Genevieve Saenz, LMFT Associate

Don't worry... we won't put you on the spot! You choose what you're comfortable sharing with others.

Benefits

Unplug and find space to connect with your partner

  • Take time away from the logistics of wedding planning, parenting, or daily life stressors to focus on building a strong foundation.

  • Enjoy the beautiful Texas Hill Country setting, sip on a refreshing beverage, and enjoy a catered lunch while connecting with your partner through exercises meant to enrich the bond you share with one another.

Invest in your marriage

  • Refocus and set the intention for the future of your relationship.

  • Develop a deeper understanding and learn things about your partner you may not know yet.

  • Gain tools to prevent and manage current or future issues in the relationship.

  • Walk away with meaningful vows to share with your partner during your wedding ceremony.

  • Premarital work is often overlooked as a worthy wedding planning expenditure. However, those who participate in premarital education report, on average, a 30% stronger marriage. Ultimately, the average wedding will cost $12,000-15,000. Our retreat costs less than 4% of that.

$60 Discount on marriage license and expedited filing

  • Couples who come to our Premarital Couples Retreat to complete our approved TwoGether in Texas course will receive a certificate for a $60 discount on their marriage license (if filed in Texas).

  • Presenting your certificate to the county clerk will also waive the 72-hour waiting period before getting married.

  • The certificate is good for one year before marriage.
