Facilities and Capacity
Tate Farms is one of the last family-owned working ranches in Rockwall County, raising everything from chickens to horses on the lush grounds. The team soon began hosting celebrations as a way to share the beauty of the farm with others. Multiple event spaces are present onsite, hosting elopements and lavish receptions alike. Couples are welcome to host their ceremony in the historic Smirl Chapel, which was first built in 1898 and carefully moved to the ranch. Inside features the original wooden walls and stained glass windows, adding a visually stunning touch to your vows. For an outdoor ceremony, couples can place their arch near the two metal silos and large budding tree for a one-of-a-kind view. After you say "I do," you can make your way to The Party Barn, which offers both indoor and outdoor settings for a versatile experience. String lights, wooden farm tables, and wagon wheel chandeliers decorate the barn, covering your celebration in a warm, welcoming glow. Also present is a spacious patio dance floor for you and your guests to enjoy the music. The venue is 35 minutes from downtown Dallas, giving couples a secluded, private atmosphere while still being near enough to the city. Parking is available onsite, with wheelchair accessibility to help everyone arrive at the venue safely.
Summerfield at Tate Farms offers all-inclusive packages to help couples have a seamless, stress-free planning experience. Event planning, furniture rentals, and bartending services are some of the many options the team offers. On your big day, the team will take care of setup and cleanup while you enjoy yourself to the fullest.
