As I posted about earlier, Dallas and Fort Worth have so many incredible wedding venues! From ones right downtown, in the middle of the nightlife, to those set in the countryside, there is an option for every couple! As a Dallas Wedding Photographer, I have had the honor of shooting at so many venues! I often get asked by my couples what the top wedding venues are here in the Dallas area, and I love to help them pick the perfect one.

Located in the heart of Downtown Dallas, The Carlisle Room is perfect for the couple who want to be close to the nightlife! Located in the renovated Lone Star Gas building, built in 1931, this venue has art deco charm, with modern luxury. The main ballroom has marble walls, and 17-foot ceilings – your guests will be in awe of the architecture! There is also a bride and groom suite right on-site, so you can get ready steps away from your wedding. This venue is perfect for larger weddings since it can accommodate up to 200 people. It’s a stunning Dallas wedding venue!
Just 25 minutes north of Mckinney, The Grand Ivory is perfect for a bride who wants something clean and modern! This 18-acre venue features multiple buildings to chose from, so you can customize your wedding! First, there is The Grand Ivory Chapel, which has over 3,000 square feet of white space and overlooks the properties large pond. The chapel is finished in a rustic modern style with ivory wood walls, ceilings, white oiled floors, and french chandeliers.
The best part? In the warm weather, the sides can be open to the stunning views, and in the winter, the chapel can be enclosed! The barn is the signature space, that is perfectly modern and southern, with huge windows and a large porch, great for cocktail hour. Every single seat has incredible views, and your guests will love it! My favorite feature? The two cottages on site for the bride and groom! These intimate and private spaces are just for you on your wedding day, and both are on different sides of the 18-acre property, so you can have privacy from each other.
If you are dreaming of a French Inspired Estate, right in Texas, you need to see The Olana! This opulent venue has French baroque architecture and is unlike any other venue in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. The estate features lush landscaping, a tea room modeled after New York’s Tavern on the Green, an indoor and outdoor pool, a tennis court, a bowling alley, a basketball court, expansive private suites and more. The marble floors and gold plated elevator enhance the grandeur even more at this Dallas wedding venue. Guests will feel like they hopped on a plane to France!
The Statler Hotel recently finished incredible renovations, and is gorgeous inside! Located in Downtown Dallas, this is another great wedding venue for couples who want their wedding close to the action. Guests can stay right in the hotel, and walk downstairs to your celebration! The decor is retro-chic and pays a nod to its original build date in the 1950s. There are multiple spaces to choose from, including a huge ballroom, a rooftop pool, and views of the Dallas skyline from the rooftop.
