Best day ever!

We don’t even know where to begin with how fabulous The Pines was for our wedding! It was an absolute dream! Kylie and her team were so easy to work with and communicate with and they helped us to create the best day of our lives!

Not only did Kylie and her team keep a constant open line of communication with us, but she also answered any and all questions our coordinator had as well! We discussed the reception layout at our finalization meeting and when we arrived to the venue it was exactly set and ready for us to decorate! The packages they offer are such a game changer too, they help take some of the stress of the day away and allow you to fully soak up this special time!

The venue was absolutely gorgeous, the bridal suite was every girls dream, and even the guys had a comfortable groom suite to hang out in and watch football! I would highly recommend this hidden gem to literally anyone looking to have a wedding in the DFW area! Thank you again to the Pines for facilitating the best day of our lives!

Touring with Pines

Our touring experience was pleasant. The pricing is comparable to the area and employees are knowledgeable in answering FAQs

Exceptional service and amazing value

The Pines of Alvarado is a true gem! The staff was incredibly easy to work with and professional. The venue is stunning with a perfect rustic, chic vibe. Exactly what our daughter wanted for her special day. There are only two public restroom stalls which could be a challenge for a very large group, but it was fine for our medium sized crowd. There is an outside ceremony area and a cocktail area that both are wonderful spots for an outdoor ceremony. Due to the extreme Texas heat, we choose an indoor ceremony in front of the large barn doors and it turned out wonderful. So many of our guest commented on how great it was. I highly recommend this beautiful venue and would definitely use them again if the need arises.
