You Won’t Believe How These Four Dallas Wedding Venues Have Been Transformed

See how, with a unique vision and the right decor, the same venue can be completely transformed.

Nasher Sculpture Center

Planning by Julian Leaver Events and floral by GRO Designs

On October 9, 2021, Megan Allen and Matt Meaders turned up the glitz factor at their Nasher Sculpture Center celebration (left), with white-and-gold chairs, black table linens, and brass starburst pendants hanging from the trees.

Planning by Social Graces Weddings and Events and floral by The Garden Gate

Meanwhile, Deanna Harney and Thomas Welch embraced a classic garden party vibe for their May 7, 2021, nuptials (right), incorporating white linens and florals along with bamboo chairs that echoed the natural feel of the venue.

Marie Gabrielle Restaurant and Gardens

Planning by Anna Eisenlohr Events and Floral by Branching Out Events

Brooke Koonsman and Jon Jessen were surely glowing at their April 3, 2021, reception (left)—and not just from newly wedded bliss. Their head table and ghost chairs s were framed in a canopy of string lights, giving a whole new look to the gardens of Marie Gabrielle.

Planning by Engaged Events and Floral by Venus & Co.

On October 31, 2020, Lauren Neu and Garrett Cayet went more traditional (right), with wood tables and chairs, cascading greenery garlands, and deep red accents.

Arlington Hall at Turtle Creek Park

Arlington Hall Wedding Venues

Planning by 1600 Events and floral by Garden Gate

This perennially loved venue went glam for Sydney Thompson and Chip Caraway’s October 23, 2021, reception (left), with gold chairs, graphic linens, and cherry blossom trees.

Planning by Events by Kristin and floral by Something Pretty Floral

Laura Israel and Ben Vonderhaar went a different way for their March 13, 2021, wedding day (right), with greenery-wrapped columns and a hanging display over the dance floor paired with soft blue details.

The Ritz-Carolton, Dallas

Ritz Carlton Wedding Venue

Planning by Caroline Events and floral by GRO Designs

It’s hard to believe that the lush garden you see here (left) is actually inside a ballroom, but Kalize Bauer and Clay Mauldin totally transformed the space for their August 20, 2021, “I do’s.” Blooms and birds dripped from every surface while faux grass covered the floors and tables. The event even had models dressed in floral attire to greet guests.

Planning by Allison Baker Events and floral by Branching Out Events

Just two weeks prior, the same space was a vision in white, when Carey Davis and David Lawrence eschewed bold tones for an monochromatic—but still floral-heavy—tablescape for their August 7, 2021, reception (right).
