About

On WeddingWire since 2008

Historic 512 is a wedding venue in downtown Fort Worth, Texas. Sporting a timeless, classic elegance, this downtown setting adds a one-of-a-kind aesthetic to any couple's big day. The onsite team works closely with couples throughout the planning process to help them achieve their vision.

Facilities and Capacity

Historic 512 is a landmark building that features a blend of 1920s architecture and modern decor. Soon-to-be-weds will have two separate event spaces to choose from to host their ceremony, reception, and prenuptial events. The Great Room can seat up to 160 guests. Its historic grand fireplace features intricate details that make for an eye-catching backdrop for the altar. Large windows and romantic sheer curtains surround the room, creating a bright, airy atmosphere.

For receptions, the Grand Ballroom can seat up to 160 guests around the large dance floor. Vintage chandeliers hang from the hand-crafted wood ceiling to cover visitors in a warm, sophisticated glow. An elevated stage stands proudly at the front of the ballroom and can be used to accommodate your live band, DJ or head table. Before the ceremony begins, couples and their wedding party will have access to the two get-ready suites, the Parlor Room and Bishop's Room.

Services Offered

Along with single ballroom rentals, couples are able to book the entire venue for a two-floor reception. Historic 512 only books one event per day, ensuring that each client has plenty of time to host a successful celebration. The onsite team will take care of set-up and clean-up, and can also provide bartending services and various event rentals.
