Amazing to work with
I can’t wait to get married here. It’s beautiful and everything is built beautifully that I cannot find any faults with walking areas, scenery, photo ops, and overall design of the ceremony and reception area. Booking with them was a breeze and everything was explained to the last detail. There are no hidden fees or insane expenses and they include a lot in the service. Contacting them with any questions and other tours has been very professional and fast. We are getting married in two years and so far it has been an awesome experience working with them.Sent on 12/10/2019

Beautiful setting, excellent service
Willow Creek was just right for our daughter's small, intimate wedding! They offer a beautiful house where the bride and groom can get ready and hang out with their groups. The site offers many different settings for photos and has indoor and outdoor areas. The site staff was very helpful and very accommodating when we had to postpone the wedding from May to November due to COVID-19.Sent on 11/21/2020

Garden wedding dream come true
Willow creek was the most amazing venue I could have asked for in regards to my wedding. We got engaged February 2020 and quickly booked at willow creek early March 2020. It didn’t take us long to find a beautiful venue that fit our style and budget. We recently had our big day on April 11th. The venue managers and day of coordinator (Jenn) and bar staff were so lovely to work with, and honestly helped in every way they could. They didn’t charge crazy fees and weren’t picky about what vendors could or could not be at my wedding. This was important to me because I had a lot of friends and family doing things like floral, cake, sweets, video and more. The bridal house was a huge selling point for us, because we have large families and wanted to also give the groom a good space to hang out in all day instead of some small bedroom. Overall, the day couldn’t have been any more perfect when it comes to Texas weather, as we found ourselves in low 80s and mid 70s by nightfall. We were able to enjoy their outdoor Bar Betty trailer during the reception and have an indoor bar inside. The only negative side to the venue is it may be a little further away from the highways, or downtown Dallas, but I’m telling you it was TOTALLY WORTH IT! This made it quiet and peaceful. We kept hearing from guests that this was one of the most beautiful weddings they attended, and I give the credit to this beautiful garden like venue that made my dreams come true. Thank you!!!Sent on 04/22/2021

I love working at Willow Creek! They are constantly improving the facilities for vendors and clients--making for a truly easy wedding day experience. I especially appreciate the easy load-in and load-out when hauling large floral designs and boxes. Makes my job so much easier! Also, the outdoor space lends so well to great floral installs.
