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.
