About Elmwood Gardens

Elmwood Gardens is a historic farm venue in the greater Dallas, Texas area. This whimsical and romantic venue features country elements in garden spaces where couples can wed, dine, and celebrate. Gazebos, fountains, and greenery await at Elmwood Gardens, located a scenic two-hour drive from downtown Dallas.

Facilities and Capacity
This venue welcomes a maximum of 300 guests for a couple’s wedding. At Elmwood Gardens, couples have numerous scenic wedding locations for their event. There are four ceremony-specific sites at this venue. There is a Wedding Walk, where couples walk down the aisle beneath the beams of a rustic wooden frame to a garden gazebo. At this ornate metal gazebo couples can exchange vows and begin their lives together. There is also a Stonewood Garden. At this location couples will find massive stones and boulders as well as a stone-laden water garden with a waterfall as their backdrop. This is a beautiful natural space for a couple’s wedding, completely unique to these gardens. There is also an open-air chapel, with a wooden frame and bell as the backdrop, and the Doors to Forever at the Trees of Faith, that couples may choose for their ceremony. Following the ceremony couples can take photos throughout these picturesque gardens. Fountains, flowers and foliage all await.

This antique country structure includes wooden ceilings, hardwood floors, and romantic lighting for a couple’s reception.

    Best day of my life!

    I absolutely love the property and all the different options we had we ended up getting rained on but still ended up being the most amazing and most gorgeous wedding ever thanks to all staff and the owners who were very helpful and friendly and wanted us to be completely happy with our experience and I am literally overjoyed with my day and how it turned out!

    Michael has been the absolute most amazing person in helping us get exactly what we want AND MORE for our perfect wedding day! He generally responds within just a couple of minutes when I have a question or even if I'm just saying hi and telling him something about my day. When I first received a message from him reguarding Elmwood Gardens, I immediately felt that he truly cared that we were able to achieve everything we dream of for the wedding. He was very understanding when we had to bring our son, Kye, to our tour of the venue and even included him in the conversation. Kye enjoyed acting like one of the adults and even started trying to take over for Michael, which he thought was adorable. Michael is extremely accommodating and caring. He checks on us to see how we are doing every week. He has simply been the most amazing person, without him, I would probably have to wait a couple of years for a ceremony or get married at a place I wasn't happy with. He has made the impossible, possible in our near future. A beautiful ceremony with a gorgeous reception and at a cost that doesn't have me hyperventilating. Thank you Michael for all you have done and continue to do to make my (our) dream wedding come to life.
