Just because you are getting married in “East Texas” does not mean you are limited to 1 of the 4,283 tiny Baptist churches in the area. There are some AMAZING venus around and they offer a lot of advantages when planning your wedding. They have a staff that takes care of little details, they typically have 1-2 sometimes 3 weddings per week so they know the ins and outs of a wedding day, and many of these places provide an on-site coordinator that help your day run smooth and let your mom/aunt/sister just enjoy the day rather than plan and worry up to the last minute. I can NOT recommend these places enough and if you are looking for a beautiful venue for your day these are just 2 of the ones nearby.
If you have ever been to the Villa di Felicita then you know there really is nothing like it in the area. It’s an amazing large venue that is hard to describe but impossible to forget. Finally, here is a bit of wedding photography from the last time i shot there.
How did you guys get started, How long have you been doing this?
We were wanting to start a family business and realized that Tyler needed a Venue that was specifically built for Weddings. We have always enjoyed helping friends and family with weddings and thought we should start a business so that we could help others with their weddings! We opened in April of 06 and have enjoyed it so much!
What is your favorite part about your job?
I love seeing when people are so in love and are so ready to spend the rest of their lives together! It is so rewarding at the end of a day when you know that you have helped two people celebrate one of the most important days in their lives!! oh, and I also like when there is left over Wedding Cake!!!
What is the craziest thing that has ever happened at your venue? (This of course does not mean that you were responsible for the crazy.)
Here are just a few that we remember well! A bride almost passed out before walking down the isle, my security guard had to take down a groomsmen for fighting, a bridesmaid was left stranded out on the curb at the end of the night (everyone left her), had a groomsmen punch a hole in the groom’s room wall! all kinds of fun and crazy stuff can happen at a wedding!
What are some things brides should look for when looking for a venue?
How accommodating is it to your needs? is there enough room, do you like the layout, do you like the decor? It helps when the venue includes a lot of stuff that you don’t have to worry about getting yourself. Do they have a coordinator to help you with the details? Do they provide the food? The more you don’t have to do yourself, the easier it will be for you to plan your perfect day!
What is something unique to your venue that you are extra proud of?
The beauty of our facility and the beautiful view outside is something that we feel is what we are most proud of. Our outside area is surrounded by 50 private acres with manicured gardens and a long walkway that leads to a beautiful setting for your ceremony. I also think that our reception room is unique for many reasons, but mostly for the star-lit ceiling with hundreds of fiber-optic twinkling lights.
Anything else you wanna say?
I would also like to say that we have a wonderful staff that works hard at making sure every detail is met for your special day. We are here to see that no detail is overlooked and we do all we can to make it as special as it should be!
