Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Acres of pristine farmland create a tranquil, nature-centered backdrop at this family-run ranch. With mature trees, a charming rustic-modern outdoor ceremony space, and plenty of room to spread out, it’s a fantastic option for your North Texas celebration.
  • The barn is simply stunning, with walls of multi-hued reclaimed wood, a floor-to-ceiling stacked stone fireplace, polished concrete flooring, and romantic, vintage-inspired lighting. Sliding doors open to airy patios, allowing the celebration to flow onto the pretty grounds.
  • The Master House and Guest House provide accommodation for up to sixteen overnighters. While away the days by the pool, play some games of billiards or ping pong, and gather together for meals on the inviting covered porch.



Micro Wedding Packages range from $1,980-$2,280 and are available Monday-Wednesday morning or Monday-Wednesday afternoon.
