The Cross Creek Ranch is a waterfront ranch venue for couples’ weddings in the greater Dallas, Texas area. This venue has a vintage country barn and shining outdoor spaces for a couple’s wedding day. The ranch is located just 20 minutes from The University of Texas at Dallas.
Facilities and Capacity
Couples can celebrate their wedding with up to 325 guests at the Cross Creek Ranch. This venue features indoor and outdoor spaces for couples to use for the day’s events. An outdoor ceremony can take place under a wide wooden pergola. Couples can drape this structure with linens, flowers, or other decor for their big day in accordance with their wedding colors and style. The pergola stands on a small stage where couples will begin their lives together in front of their family and friends looking on. These guests can sit in white folding chairs placed on the lawn of freshly cut grasses. A paved stone pathway served as the aisle down which couples can walk. There is also a pavilion that can be used for more sheltered ceremonies. This open-air structure protects couples from rain or sun with a tin roof and wooden beams. The floor is a smooth paved concrete, and the surrounding pavilion area features wooden flooring not unlike a deck. Near the pavilion is a small gazebo, perfect for more intimate ceremonies. Inside the barn, couples will find polished floors, a wall of bright windows, and wooden panelled walls. Overhead, market lights are strung across the ceiling.
This venue offers all-inclusive packages for couples who don’t want to worry about the details or coordination of their wedding day. Instead, they can relax in the venue’s cozy bridal suite. Even couples who choose to be more hands on with their wedding planning can take advantage of the staff’s assistance with setup and cleanup on the day of the wedding.

If you are looking for a gorgeous, turn key wedding venue, look no further. Cross Creek Ranch is a *perfect* destination for your DFW wedding. I had my wedding at CCR in November 2020 (after COVID made me reschedule my original May 2020 wedding in New Orleans) – and I could not have been happier with my decision. Here are the top 4 reasons why I loved getting married at CCR!Sent on 11/28/2020
1) CCR is turn key – literally, Katie and her team do EVERYTHING! From florals, linens, decor, food, day of coordination, etc. As a bride planning wedding #2 due to COVID, this was super important to me as it helped with decision making. It was also cost efficient and allowed me to see the full picture with my wedding in terms of vision and decor (knowing one vendor was handling it all).
2) CCR provides options – there are three different spots to host the ceremony. I really liked this because my vision was to get married outside on the lawn, but I felt at peace knowing I could still have my "outdoor wedding" under the pergola should there be some bad weather. And then of course, if all hell broke loose, there is still the option to host the ceremony inside by their gorgeous fire place. There are also options to have cocktail hour inside or outside. Again, this was awesome because I was never worried about the weather.
3) Preferred vendor list – CCR has a slew of preferred vendors who are all familiar with the space. I booked my photographer, videographer, cake, hotel and alcohol all through their preferred vendor list – which again, made the planning process super easy. All of their vendors were a blessing to work with and had the same customer service as CCR.
4) Katie, Heather and Crystal – these three ladies are like Charlie's Angels. They kick ass and take names. While all three help you along the way with planning your wedding, you do get assigned one the day-of to help with coordination. Katie, Heather and Crystal were timely with their email correspondences and always made time for me, which I really appreciated. This type of 1:1 customer service is rare when planning a wedding, and something I think separates CCR from other venues.
Cross Creek Ranch, thank you for giving me the best day ever! I hope other brides are fortunate enough to experience the magic I felt on November 15, 2020.

So easy and beautiful!
This venue is BEAUTIFUL and nearly all inclusive! The ladies here literally do all the work for you, making your wedding day stress free! The vendor list they provided was life saving. I chose all my vendors from that list and they were all fantastic and worked really well together. Our wedding day was perfect and really couldn’t have gone any better. Thank you Crystal, heather and Katie!!!Sent on 11/17/2020

The Perfect Day at CCR
I cannot say enough good things about Cross Creek Ranch! Not only is the venue absolutely beautiful and charming, the staff is amazing and took tons of the stress of wedding planning off my shoulders. They do pretty much everything for you- catering, decorations, florals, and also provide a comprehensive recommendation list of local vendors to help you fill in the rest. We were forced to postpone our wedding due to the pandemic, but the CCR staff went above and beyond to help us re-schedule and keep us informed during really uncertain times. When we finally got to have our big day everything went off without a hitch thanks to Heather and her team’s experience and professionalism. All of our guests had an amazing time and I’m still getting comments about how lovely the ceremony and reception were. 10/10 would recommend this place!Sent on 11/01/2020
Beautiful venue, amazing staff !!
This place is by far one of my favorite wedding venues. The staff is great to work with and they go above and beyond to take care of their brides and other events. With everything on site at this venue, it is certainly a place that should be strongly considered for any wedding.
Love the Swingin D Ranch!!! The best staff in town! Katie is absolutely amazing and you get SO much for your money!! I photograph many weddings there every year but I also speak from experience because I was also married at the ranch. They cover every detail and it is a beautiful location! I recommend it over and over.
