    Smoothest wedding planning

    As soon as we walked onto property we were blown away with the romantic and historic feel of the chapel, pavilion, and dining house. Looked like a lovely piece of history frozen in time. We had a small wedding (30 people) and this venue fit us perfectly. It was small enough to make our wedding feel intimate but also have plenty of room for dancing and catching up with family members. The coordinator, Kim, was amazing. She helped us from beginning to end. She answered every question we had (there were a lot) and she did so with a smile on her face! We highly recommend this venue to smaller weddings but can also hold more.

    Winter wonderland

    We had a beautiful ceremony and reception!! We did opt for the additional packages offered for decor and clean up and it was an EXCELLENT decision! I absolutely recommend getting them. It takes away so many “to-do’s”. Kim was wonderful to work with and knows her stuff! The venue was beautiful and the staff were so attentive. If you are looking for a location rich in tradition and personal touch you can’t go wrong by selecting Chestnut Square.

    I can not wait to have my wedding here. Everything about this venue is amazing in all that has to offer. Even though I still have a year I very excited to see what everything is going to look like. Kim is amazing and has been extremely helpful. We had to move our date and she was able to do it without any issues. Super excited for next year and see this venue in all of its beauty.. ?? Since I recently went to discuss my vision for decorations.. I can't wait!!

    Chestnut Square is charming with a small town feeling. The only thing that I would suggest is improved lighting in the bridal suite as it was a little dim for my 'old' mother of the bride eyes.

    We held our son's rehearsal dinner under the Pavilion. The night was magical. We cannot say enough great things. Kim was a joy to work with, always responsive and accommodating.

    We used the Dulaney House for our birthday event. It was great!! Kim was great and so flexible with our event! Would recommend to anyone! It would make a great place for a reception. The patio was perfect for everyone to hang out - but if the weather had been bad - we would have had room inside and on the wrap around porch to hang out.

    I honestly don’t think you can find a better wedding venue than Chestnut Square in McKinney. We looked at so many places prior to finding Chestnut Square (C.S.) and when we first laid eyes on the property, we knew it was for us! The grounds are laid out perfectly and you have the option of how you’d like to utilize the space. The venue is laid out over an entire block in historic McKinney. There is a beautiful Chapel that we were had our ceremony in, and they also have a garden outside should you prefer to get married outdoors. The bride suite was to die for; it was inside one of the older houses on the property and set up for the entire bridal party. The reception hall was a stone’s throw away from the chapel and Kim, the event manager and day of coordinator, guided guests there as we left to take our photos. They also have a covered outdoor pavilion that we utilized as our “party area” and danced the night away with our family and friends. Kim was amazing and honestly saved us from getting a wedding coordinator. Her services alone would be a reason to choose C.S. over other venues. She coordinated with our DJ, our photographers, our guests, our vendors, etc. to make sure everything flowed seamlessly throughout the evening; she even rang the chapel bell during our first kiss! We are so happy to have found Chestnut Square and we hope you will be too!

    Kim and her staff took wonderful care of us for my son's wedding last weekend. Kim kept me calm and organized. The venue was beautiful. The chapel is quaint, the Bevel House for the reception is beautiful and the guest really enjoyed the time outside under the gazebo for dancing and visiting. I would definitely recommend the Chapel at Chestnut Square for your McKinney weddings.

    This is such a unique venue! We were looking for a whimsical, non-stuffy, casually-cool venue to share with our special guests and we found it at Chestnut Square. Compared to other venues in the area we felt like this one represented our style without compromising our budget. Kim Ducote, the director, was very responsive anytime we texted her with questions. They truly are pros at Chestnut Square and know the venue well. They anticipate and correct anything that might dampen the spirit of the day. It ended up being unseasonably cold on our wedding day. No problem. The curtains were closed and a standing heater was installed so our guests could enjoy dancing in the pavilion. I think they could improve the flow to the Bevel House reception hall. I don't think all of our guests knew we would be serving dinner inside so many left early. If there is a way to provide a view from the Pavilion to the reception hall via a well lit window or maybe a glass door up the steps near the kitchen, I think that would help. More permanent signage around the Bevel House on the Pavilion side would be beneficial as well.

    Our ceremony was literally perfect. The little chapel was so quaint and charming. The ringing of the bells was really special during our kiss. It was all so lovely. Thank you, Chestnut Square.

    My daughter’s wedding could not have run more smoothly. Kim and her crew were amazing. Every detail was just as we had planned and the ladies attending to food and service were wonderful. Several guests specifically commented on how friendly and unintrusive they were as they cleaned. The bride and groom felt like it was perfect and the guests all felt it was over too soon. We chose to have Kim manage the entire event. I highly recommend her. We were able to fully enjoy the day knowing she had all the details under control.

    Our guests also loved being able to go directly from the chapel for the wedding to the reception on site. Having the option to do everything in one place was so much easier and relaxing for the wedding party.

    Where do I start! Kim was amazing to work with and even though we are currently living in Australia, she made it so easy to organise everything from afar. I was nervous that when the day finally came it wouldn't look the way we had planned over email, however when we arrived at the venue it was even BETTER than I had imagined. If you are looking for a personalised, no-stress, GORGEOUS venue with options to make it completely your own - look no further. Thank you Kim!

    We had a wonderful wedding at Chestnut Square. The chapel is beautiful - we had a family-only wedding, and the 1908 building gave us a classy, classic chapel for our ceremony. Kim was so easy to work with - returned calls immediately, gave good recommendations on flowers, was so helpful and professional. The Johnson House was lovely for the bride to prepare in. And the chapel bells as they were pronounced man and wife were beautiful! We couldn't have been happier with Chestnut Square and Kim.

    We worked with Kim from start to finish to make our wedding happen. She responded to my millions of questions so quickly in the months leading up to the wedding that it blew my mind! She was also there on the day to make sure there were no last minute issues and to keep us on track. I am SO happy that we got married at this incredibly beautiful venue, not only because of it's character, but because of Kim's character.
