I just had my wedding in the branch and it felt like a fairytale to me. The venue itself is gorgeous and is blooming with flowers and greenery. It is also a huge venue that gives you many opportunities to take fun or romantic wedding pictures. The bathrooms have just been remodeled and it looks amazing! We had our wedding in the Old Church within the venue and the church felt intimate and beautiful. It is teeming with so much history and character. It feels amazing getting married in a structure that so many other couples have been united in. The church has a piano one can use during the ceremony, and it is traditional for the bride and groom to pull the rope at the entrance of the church and ring the church bells at the end of the ceremony! Originally our plan was to have our reception in the beautiful gazebo area, but a storm the night before my wedding made that impossible. Although I was devastated by the storm, the team at the venue did everything in their power to make sure that my wedding remain just as special. Luckily the venue offers a backup plan for the gazebo area which is the Dodson House. The house is beautiful and cozy but pretty spacious for a small wedding. It is also air-conditioned which is ideal for wedding in the summers. Kim Chapman who is in charge of the area is an amazingly kind and patient woman. She walked me and my husband through the entire process, made recommendations for a wedding block at a hotel, and got us our sound permit at no additional costs. Multiple times she and the staff have given us tours of the venue so that we could show our parent and in-laws our vision for the wedding. At the wedding Kim Chapman, gave us a beautiful gift from the venue's gift shop to always remember our special day. Also, the venue gives you the options to buy and engrave a brick to be installed onto the venue so that you could leave your mark for only $50. The cost of the venue was affordable especially with the significant discount they give you if you do a room block in one of their listed hotels in Farmers Branch. My wedding did not go exactly as plan, but it was even better than I thought it could be, and in a place radiating with such beauty and history, you can't go wrong. Overall, I cannot imagine a better place in all of Texas to have a wedding.Sent on 06/04/2019

Perfect for a small second wedding, or any wedding for that matter!
We had a small ceremony and wanted a quiet, intimate spot. It was perfect! The staff was accommodating and kind. Having the handicap ramp was a huge help for my Mom. I loved everything about this place.Sent on 04/05/2019
