Fabulous Venue and Staff!
I had my wedding here on 10/20/18 and worked with Carson during the planning process. She responded to all of my emails extremely promptly - almost always within a couple hours! - and was very patient with me and my millions of questions. The day went off without a hitch and everyone had an amazing time. I want to get re-married here every year!! Thank you, Salt Lick team!!Sent on 10/29/2018

We got married at Pecan Grove and had a wonderful experience working with this venue. This is a naturally gorgeous venue that is always well kept regardless of what season it is which allowed us to save money and keep decorations pretty simple...pretty much floral centerpieces, candles, some cute signs and family photos, done! Rachel was very responsive to all of our questions leading up to the big day and all the staff we encountered were incredibly helpful and professional. We had both the ceremony and reception here so were able to utilize the bridal suite. The space was perfect for getting ready and for being able to step away and have a quick quiet moment with my husband during the festivities. Some of our family has had salt lick bbq before so were already thrilled that they were catering, but it was a special treat for our family who came from out of town. We kept hearing how full everyone was and that they went back for 2nds and 3rds!! We actually had more food that we needed due to some last minute cancellations but they allowed us to take the rest home. being extremely picky if i had to say anything not so great... I could not for the life of me find a place to hang my gown in the bridal suite. There was a clothing rack that would fit regular length clothes but could not find a high enough hook to keep it off the ground. My guess is that maybe it was there i just couldnt find it, but if it wasnt there i would suggest they add that. I ended up handing my dress on the top of one of the french doors. It also got pretty warm in there, but not sure they could have controlled it that much as there was a lot of people coming in and out. the reception area was temp controlled and very cool though. This was the first and only venue we looked at. Love at first site! Would certainly use again in the futureSent on 11/06/2018
