My Dream Wedding Come True!
The owners, Sara & Austen are two of the friendliest people you’ll come to know! Their energy and passion for hosting dream weddings was evident from day one. Sara made me feel comfortable and valued during our first tour. She understood that weddings are EXPENSIVE and IMPORTANT! She accommodated to all of our needs and answered my questions throughout the planning process. On our wedding day, staff was available to assist us when needed. Everything went so smoothly and it truly was the perfect day in the most beautiful venue! Having an outdoor AND indoor option was especially important to us as well. You will have that here! The bridal suite is a MUST SEE. It’s spectacular!! Sara & Austen do honor first responders AND nurses by providing a discount on your big day. This helped us tremendously. We would recommend this couple AND this venue over and over again!Sent on 10/11/2019

Amazing Venue - Hidden Gem One Hour East of Dallas
The Establishment Barn and Sara (the owner) are so wonderful, it’s going to be hard to put into words how perfect and amazing everything was for our wedding. If you are looking for a great wedding venue, look no farther than The Establishment Barn. It truly is a hidden gem and I can’t imagine having my wedding any other place.Sent on 06/03/2019
Our wedding was originally being held at a private home that is on two acres; however, due to the non-stop rain Dallas/Fort Worth had between March and May, we were forced to change our plans about three weeks before our wedding. It was very stressful, as I was convinced places were going to be booked. We also had to find a venue that would allow us to use all of the vendors we had already contracted with – caterer, photographer, musicians, rentals, etc. After doing some research, we found The Establishment Barn in Terrell. The day I went to visit the venue it was pouring rain and Sara still met me at the venue to give me a tour. But even with the downpour, I knew I had found the perfect place for our wedding.
The Establishment Barn is a hidden gem just one hour east of Dallas. The property is beautiful and the barn itself is amazing. There is a beautiful and very large bridal suite upstairs and the groom’s suite is downstairs. There is a large kitchen for the caterer and a spacious area for cocktail hour. The main reception area is large with very, very high ceilings. Our wedding was small; only 30 people total. But, the way the room was set up didn’t make it feel like we were in a huge space. But, if you have a large wedding reception, you will have plenty of room.
Another thing that we liked about the venue was that there were three places we could have the ceremony, depending on the weather. We were blessed and had perfect weather the week of the wedding, so we were able to have our ceremony outside on the grass. But, if it had rained the day before, there is a place to still get married outside and not be in wet or muddy grass. And, if it was pouring (like it was every weekend leading up to our wedding), we would have it inside.
After the ceremony, we took family photos with the barn as the backdrop and then we walked around the property and took pictures with the most beautiful backdrops.
Sara was so easy to work with and was very responsive anytime my wedding coordinator or myself had a question. She made herself available on a Sunday afternoon so my wedding coordinator and I could tour the venue together to discuss how everything was going to be setup. She was there during the setup up and our entire wedding, helping our coordinator if needed. She even texted me the day of my wedding saying congratulations and to savor the day because it’s going to be a day we will remember forever.
The Establishment Barn's reply:You are the best Mrs.Crow! I am so happy you and Brad enjoyed your wedding at The Establishment! You were an amazing bride and had some amazing vendors and guests. Be sure to keep in touch with me!
