"wonderful intimate setting", An Eventective User from Dallas
I had my wedding ceremony here in 2008, this is a lovely and quiet place for a wedding ceremony and reception. It feels quaint and charming but is actually very spacious and just 20 minutes from downtown Dallas. Excellent indoor/outdoor entertaining and event space, very reasonable rates, and friendly helpful people to deal with. Carol is great!
