Sweet Briar Farm is a rural wedding venue situated in Linden, Texas. Dating back to the 1890s, this property once functioned as a cattle farm. Current owners Toni and Lewis Melton built their family home here in the early 2000s, building a barn for Toni’s mother to live in. This barn set the scene for their son’s wedding in 2017, and the facility has been hosting marital celebrations ever since. Nestled amid East Texas’ picturesque Piney Woods, this modern farmhouse venue can provide the backdrop for your entire once-in-a-lifetime event.

Facilities and Capacity

At Sweet Briar Farm, your nearest and dearest will surely be delighted by its combination of rustic charm and scenic beauty. You and your partner can tie the knot at the outdoor ceremony site. Surrounded by idyllic woodland, this open-air setting is the perfect place to say “I do”. Following your service, you can explore the grounds to find the best backdrops for your photography session. You can host your reception in the barn, a charming event hall that can comfortably receive up to 200 people. The barn is replete with bucolic details that pay tribute to the venue’s agricultural heritage, such as the barrels, wood panels, and stone walls. There are also many modern features that are bound to impress your guests, from the expansive floor-to-ceiling windows to the decorative chandelier. As you wine and dine with your friends and family, you admire the eye-catching views of the grounds.

    Wedding October 30th

    If you are looking for a venue look no further than Sweet Briar Farms. We llive approx 1hr away but Toni and Holly are so helpful and attentive with everything that distance should not deter you from checking this place out. The wedding venue itself is very pretty and can be dressed up or down according to your dream day. Toni and Holly are absolutely amazing with the flowers and decorations. Our daughter's wedding was absolutely perfect and we were able to enjoy the entire event and not worry with anything!

    Toni and her assistant Holly were amazing and made sure every detail was perfect.

    I sincerely cannot imagine a better venue! Toni, the owner, and Holly, her assistant, helped guide us through everything to make Joe and Maddy’s wedding so perfect. They took care of the flowers and decorating. Toni made suggestions regarding who, what, when and where. If we needed anything she had the solution. I can not brag on this lady enough.

    Sweet Briar Farm's reply:

    Glenda, thanks so much! I am so glad you were pleased, and we LOVED working with you and Maddy as well!
