DALLAS WEDDINGS

If you’re searching for the perfect Dallas wedding venue for your big day, it’s probably a little overwhelming!! There are SO many incredible venues sprinkled throughout the entire Dallas metroplex, which makes it difficult to know where to begin when sorting through them all.

And on top of it all, you need to know more than just the venue’s capacity, price and features: you need to know the VIBE. As a Dallas wedding photographer who has captured over 100+ weddings in the city – and perhaps more importantly, whose biggest life accomplishment was making a brief appearance in Taylor’s Reputation documentary (catch me screaming and crying at time stamp 1:14:01), I’m excited to share 30 of my all time favorite Dallas wedding venues and their corresponding Taylor Swift songs with you!

BEST BY CATEGORY

While every venue on this list has it’s own features that make it awesome, if I were giving out Grammys for certain “best of” categories, these would be it!

Downtown Dallas wedding at The Mason.


The Mason: Style (1989)

If you’ve got that James Dean, daydream look in your eye – or a red lip, classic vibe that you like, The Mason may be the perfect fit for you! With its convenient downtown location and a gorgeous, grand fireplace ready for you to say “I do” in front of, The Mason is a classic couple’s dream. It features large windows, a bright interior, and three floors that make getting ready, the ceremony, and the reception a breeze!

The ultimate fairytale vibes – feel like Romeo and Juliet in your own love story at Hillside Estate!

My favorite part is all the natural light throughout the entire venue!

All the windows at this stunning venue will ensure you and your guests are dancing under starlight during your reception, even while indoors! There are so many incredible “photo ready” spots all across their property that ensure gorgeous photos year round and regardless of the weather. The main reception hall is stunning, but so is the bridal cottage, suite, and ceremony space. I love its modern vibes!

Open air wedding ceremony at The Grand Ivory in Dallas with greenery and blush roses on arch.


The Grand Ivory: Call It What You Want (Reputation)

He (or she!)’s the one you’re walking to… down either of the Grand Ivory’s beautiful ceremony aisles! There’s actually two stunning ceremony locations on this property, one covered and one uncovered. Both are equally gorgeous – and don’t even get me started on their convenient bridal and groom’s suites, all just an easy walk from the main reception hall!

Classic and elegant Dallas wedding venue, the French Farmhouse.


The French Farmhouse: Paris (Midnights, 3AM Version)

When you visit the French Farmhouse you’ll be taken by the view – like you were in Paris! The little blue accents perfectly complement a variety of wedding color schemes, and the property currently boasts 4(!) ceremony sites, three of which are indoors. And honestly, every single one of those options is incredible! You and your guests will feel transported straight to the French countryside at this elegant venue.

Candlelit ceremony setup inside of The Emerson Chapel in Dallas for a wedding.


The Emerson: Mastermind (Midnights)

What if I told you your entire day will flow smoothly and that none of it, would be accidental because the first time that the team at the Emerson saw you they would know exactly how to serve you? The staff at the Emerson are truly masterminds! They know their space inside and out, and are always present and helpful throughout the day to ensure everything meets your vision. And of course, both their chapel and reception spaces are absolutely gorgeous!

Arlington Hall: Dress (Reputation)

Just like Taylor, you’ll be buying a special dress for a very special purpose on your big day! Arlington Hall is the perfect choice if you’ve been dreaming of a chic, timeless venue to go along with your wedding gown. Its classic pillars provide a beautiful backdrop for the ceremony itself, and the reception can either be hosted inside the hall’s beautiful walls or within a beautiful acrylic tent on the property.

Bride and groom dip and kiss at The Milestone Mansion in Denton, one of Dallas' best wedding venues.


The Milestone Mansion, Denton: Midnight Rain (Midnights)

“He wanted a bride….” and you were happy to oblige! The Milestone Mansion in Denton is one of my favorite venues in the area for its beautiful exterior and overall elegance. Once inside, you’ll be greeted by a grand staircase – followed by a ballroom large enough for 200 guests to join in on the festivities. With a spacious bridal suite and both an indoor and outdoor ceremony plan, wedding days here are relaxed and easy!

Ashton Gardens Corinth: Fearless (Fearless, Taylor’s Version)

There’s no need to dance in the rain in your best dress (unless you want to, of course!) at Ashton Gardens, because you’ll have access to their stunning indoor chapel. The best photo spots on the property are so easy to access from the chapel doors, and the tall vaulted ceilings of the reception space allow the entire day to be gorgeous and picturesque.

Bride and groom at southern style mansion Dallas Wedding Venue The Springs Rockwall.


The Springs Rockwall Manor: You Belong with Me (Fearless, Taylor’s Version)

The country romance of You Belong with Me is what reminds me of the southern elegance of the mansion at Rockwall Manor! I adore the stately white columns, gorgeous front porch, and the circle drive with a fountain focal point. The ballroom inside hosts up to 320 guests, with a magnificent grand staircase, and a striking brick fireplace.

Engagement session at Dallas Arboretum.

The Dallas Arboretum: Delicate (Reputation)

The Dallas Arboretum fits the vibe of Delicate in my book due to its elegant, natural feel and the attention to fine details sprinkled throughout the entire grounds. There are almost too many ceremony and reception location options to list! But the view of Lake Dallas from Alex Camp House is one I particularly recommend! (A mansion with a view, anyone?😉)

The Olana: King of My Heart (Reputation)

A King of My Heart venue screams royalty, and so does the Olana! If you’re searching for a venue that looks like it could easily be in Europe instead of Texas, you’ve found it here. From the stunning exterior to the beautiful indoor and outdoor ceremony locations, plus the bridal suite AND indoor pool – every inch of the property is breathtaking!

The Nest at Ruth Farms: Maroon (Midnights)

I choose Maroon for the Nest at Ruth Farms in honor of the absolutely spectacular sunset colors that often grace the property and provide the perfect backdrop for cocktail hour! The rolling hills and beautiful white exterior allow the entire venue to have a graceful, elegant and intimate feel.

Knotting Hill Place: New Romantics (1989, Deluxe Edition)

If you could build a castle out of all the bricks they threw at… well somebody… Knotting Hill Place would be it! Castle is really the perfect word to describe these beautifully landscaped grounds. The gardens out back make for a stunning outdoor ceremony space, and the ballroom inside has a gorgeous balcony for couples to pose/and or kiss on before making their full reception entrance.

D’vine Grace Vineyard: Christmas Tree Farm (Single)

D’vine Grace Vineyard is NOT a Christmas tree farm, but when I think about the line “where people would come to dance under sparkling lights”, I immediately picture their courtyard! In addition to their beautiful outdoor ceremony area and European inspired ballroom, D’vine Grace also features a courtyard that becomes totally magic after dark, draped with string lights!

Brighton Abbey: London Boy (Lover)

Brighton Abbey darling, I fancy you! Experience alllll the London vibes at this clean, stunning abbey in the heart of Dallas. Its European-influence brings together a timeless fusion of nature and architecture to create an unforgettable space for a fairytale wedding day. If you’re a Bridgerton fan, I promise you’ll be as obsessed as I am with the soaring chandeliers, picturesque balconies and the stunning event lawn!

The Schoolhouse Venue: Miss Americana & The Heartbreak Prince (Lover)

Throw it back to the days when you were “16, lost in a film scene waving homecoming queens, marching band playing” by tying the knot at the Schoolhouse Venue! This adorable and historic venue is a renovation of, you guessed it, an old schoolhouse. After it’s restoration in 2019, the venue now features vintage details and intriguing architecture, plus tons of natural lighting thanks to the abundance of white, clean walls. This historic landmark is one of my top picks for a venue and experience that is truly unique!

Except you WON’T leave your spouse at this hotel bar😉 The Adolphus hotel can host up to 400 of your guests, depending on the venue location! Their ballrooms feature barrel-vaulted ceilings, chandeliers, 10-foot windows and more. The entire hotel’s decor was inspired by a combination of a German castle and an English manor, and the results are spectacular!

Davis & Grey Farms: The Story of Us (Speak Now)

Next chapter, best chapter at Davis & Grey Farms! The Boyle family works hard to provide their couples with a place of peace and sanctuary to enjoy the love and laugher of families and close friends. The beautiful white venue features an abundance of natural light and a clean slate for your wedding vision! I also love that their 12 hour rental on the weekends allows the entire day to take place onsite, from getting ready to the exit.

The White Sparrow: Enchanted (Speak Now)

Every time I drive up to the White Sparrow, Enchanted plays on repeat in my mind! It fits the vibe of the venue so well in my opinion. The White Sparrow has a soft, elegant feel while the natural wood floors and whitewashed walls add a more cozy sense of charm. During the spring, their flower garden is the perfect spot for just married portraits!

Dance the night away like you’re 22 at the Hotel Crescent! Or potentially even multiple nights, since you’ll also have the option to host your bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, or post wedding brunch at this luxury hotel and spa. The whole property exudes elegance and romance in an urban setting, and their courtyard garden is one of my favorite ceremony spots in the city!
