    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.

    This venue is so beautiful for an intimate wedding. Kim was so great during the whole process leading up to our wedding day, and on our day We didn’t have to worry about a thing! Things went smoothly and our guests had a beautiful time. The decor was exactly how I had envisioned. Thank you so much for making our day so beautiful!

    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. She had great suggestions, and the set up was beautifully done Our server, Missy, was awesome!! You will not be disappointed in working with Kim and her staff.

    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.

    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.

    Chestnut Square was absolutely perfect for my daughter's wedding on July 10th. Kim was so helpful all along the way; responding to multiple emails promptly and patiently ;-). Kim knows I had a lot of emails....maybe more than the average mom, haha. I appreciate her humor. The wedding was beautiful and the setting was over the top perfect. I felt very comfortable knowing Kim was there, overseeing the reception. Food just appeared, plates were removed and I hardly noticed. It was absolutely wonderful to relax and enjoy our guests and the bride and groom. The whole day was a dream and I will cherish it forever! Everyone loved the grounds, the ladies loved the Johnson House, and the chapel is precious. Everything, and I mean everything was perfect for our family gathering. It was a day to remember.

    This is a really neat venue. The chapel was the first thing that drew me to the location and was the little white chapel we were looking for. With the rental, you get the whole venue all day, which was really nice. There are three building with a little garden area and pavilion: the church, reception building, and bridal house. The grooms can get ready in the chapel. Kim was great to work with. She was not pushy and was honest. It was definitely not a sales pitch of a meeting. They have great add on packages which were reasonable and I have a feeling Kim does a WONDERFUL job with. Chestnut Square really fit our budget and allowed for a complete DIY if you should chose. We chose not to do our wedding here only because we felt our wedding was growing too big to be hosted here (130-150) and wanted the option of having most everyone in the same room. Go look though, they sell out fast!
