Our wedding was a dream!
I literally do not have the words to explain how grateful we are to have chosen The Orchard as our venue. Even with planning a wedding in the middle of a pandemic, Ashley, Kristi, Kevin, Lacey and the Owners were complete angels! We were originally suppose to get married on May 9th, 2020. At the end of March we decided to postpone to August 14th, 2020 (the hottest day of the year!) Even when everything else was so unsure, The Orchard made sure we would still have our perfect day regardless of the date we chose. Our Family rented the cabins and lodge for Thursday (rehearsal dinner) and for Friday (our wedding). This was such a game charger because we had everything and everyone right there. Since our big day our family and friends have done nothing but rave and praise how great our wedding was. This couldn't have been accomplished with out The Orchard and their team! I wish i could give the venue a million stars! Thank you so much for making our dream become reality!Sent on 08/21/2020

In the midst of a Pandemic - Paradise
The Orchard is beautiful with several different places to choice for a wedding ceremony. Has a large groom & bridal areas, as well as, large kitchen & bar area. However, the best thing about the Orchard was the staff. Their communication even through the COVID changes was superb. Our time in the venue was 12 noon to 12 midnight for our 6PM wedding. No hidden cost or surprises. Kevin with the Orchard was at the venue the whole time. He stayed out of sight, but must of been watching things closely. Because every time something was needed. He appeared and took care of it. Thanks to the outstanding place & staff. Made it a dream wedding.Sent on 07/22/2020

The orchard event venue and retreat is the perfect venue!! It was absolutely stunning!! Not only that but Ashley at the venue has got to be the most kindhearted and helpful people that I encountered throughout my wedding journey!!! Day or night she was there to answer her phone and help with questions or concerns, she payed close attention to detail and then went above and beyond to help us make our wedding absolutely perfect!!! Kevin was there the day of the wedding and was so helpful with our setup and made sure we had everything we needed from start to finish. I couldn't be more pleased with our experience and would recommend this venue to everyone!! Thank you Ashley and Kevin you made our special day truly perfect!!Sent on 02/22/2021

Next Level Entertainment endorses this venue as one of the best kept secrets in North Texas. The staff is amazing and always willing to help. The venue, scenery, and staff are all top notch. We get excited for the chance to come out and work at The Orchard.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about The Orchard and its amazing professional staff! I highly recommend this wedding venue to all North Texas brides in the DFW and surrounding areas!
