We are consistently told “The pictures don’t do it justice,” and “It’s even better in person!”

What Makes us Special?

How many wedding venues have a historically unique clay block silo or over 500 Christmas trees as a feature? Well, we only know of one. 🙂 We have a beautiful tree covered property with many large oaks that impress all who visit. From the woods to the Silo to the Old Barn to the Christmas trees we offer many special touches to make your personal event unique.  The photo opps are fantastic!

We are very happy to offer a charmingly intimate venue in Temple Texas that can serve the couples who call Temple home, couples from the surrounding communities, or those looking for a beautiful and unique property outside of major cities. This is our home so the level of care and attention comes from a very personal desire to offer the best experience. We aren’t a big corporation, we are a family with years of experience in the wedding industry who want to use that knowledge to help you have a beautiful, joyful wedding.

Our goal is to provide a beautiful backdrop as well as provide an easy process to prepare for your wedding.  We don’t think you should have to set up or tear down tables and chairs and we also know sometimes there isn’t someone to cut the cake so we include that service as well.

We offer two wedding packages, our Complete Wedding Package and our Small Wedding Package, see below for details and pricing is at bottom of page.

Complete Wedding Package Includes:

12 hour rental
You select the 12 hours between 9 a.m. and a full exit by 11:00 p.m. (contact us about an earlier arrival time for a brunch wedding)

We have various decorative items you may use to compliment your design: 10 whiskey barrels (rental value $500), crates, vintage double washtub on stand, vintage bicycle with basket for photo use only, frames with chicken wire, antique trunk, etc.  Also, always hung and ready to enjoy are the Edison lights strung throughout the reception area creating a beautiful nighttime scene.
Multiple Ceremony Sites
We offer several beautiful options for your ceremony. In front of the towering clay block silo – using it as your backdrop; behind the silo surrounded by trees; under one of our amazing oak trees, or for winter weddings you may want our Christmas trees to be your backdrop. We have electricity run to various sites to make it easy for your DJ to set up a sound system.
Indoor Option/Rain Plan
We felt it very important to offer our couples an indoor option. While we always hope for perfect weather we know that sometimes it rains or is very hot/cold. Our indoor venue allows you to move your wedding and guests indoors.  This space has classic barn doors opening 12 feet wide for easy flow in and out as well as 3 large arched windows allowing views of the peaceful woods.

Add-Ons to Complete Wedding Package

Day of Coordinator
You have the vision, you just need a little help creating and executing the plan. For an additional fee, I (Tricia) will meet with you a month before your wedding and together we will create a detailed timeline for you and your vendors. I will be on site with an assistant during your ceremony to make sure that your wedding timeline is followed as planned and will provide an emergency kit for, well, emergencies. For ALL the details of what this service includes see our Day of Coordinator page.
The rate for day of coordination (which includes the detailed timeline) will vary based on the needs and complexity of your event. There is no one-size-fits-all bride or wedding, so there’s no one-size-fits-all price. The price for this service will start at $500 but can be adjusted based on the needs of your wedding. Contact to discuss your needs.
Wedding Officiant
The one vendor every couple must have to be legally married is an officiant. Otherwise it’s just a party :). Stephen Simmons, I Do Ceremonies, offers his services at a reduced rate when performing here at his venue. Visit his site (idoceremonies.org) to learn more about his extensive ceremony customization and the value of his service.
Decorating.
If you need help setting up you may hire our staff to assist allowing you to maximize your rental time.  Just deliver your décor the day before (typically at the rehearsal) and we will follow your detailed plan. $150.
Extra time for setting up
If 12 hours isn’t enough to decorate and prepare for your wedding you may want to add 2 additional hours in the morning the day-of your event. $200 per hour.  Ex. For an 11a.m – 11p.m. wedding you could arrive at 9a.m. if you add the additional hours.

Small Wedding Package

We know there are many couples who desire a beautiful wedding but may not have the time or budget for an elaborate event. They simply desire to marry the one their heart loves surrounded by their closest family and friends.  We want to make that possible.

We offer a Simple Wedding Package Monday-Thursday which still gives you access to our beautiful property and the same service, but for a reduced amount of time and number of guests.  This package accommodates up to 35 guests for 4 hours.

All rules and policies still apply.

*This package is also offered Friday-Sunday if available and booked within 60 days of your wedding.  There is an additional fee of $200 for Saturdays and $100 for Friday-Sunday. Up to 10 additional guests and up to 3 additional hours may be added for an additional fee.
