Our venue is a 6500-square-foot white barn nestled in the middle of a grove of beautiful Texas oak trees. The barn rests on 100 acres of open fields and scattered trees. Whether you envision saying “I do” outdoors in the fields or in the woods, or indoors with air conditioning, we can accommodate either wish. Our 35-foot barn has a large covered porch adjacent to a 30’x80’ turf lawn with string lights hanging overhead.
The downstairs area is comprised of the 3600-square-foot grand room, foyer, a spacious prep kitchen, and beautiful bridal suite. Upstairs is the groom’s suite and office, as well as a balcony that overlooks the grand room.
This includes the grand room, foyer, spacious prep kitchen, bridal suite and groom’s suite.
The spacious prep kitchen has a stand-up warmer, a commercial refrigerator, a triple sink and an ice maker, as well as several stainless steel prep tables.
We are the only large wedding and event venue in the Waco area that has an all-white interior, which makes it perfect for photos on your wedding day. Even if you plan on getting married outdoors, should you have inclement weather on your wedding day, you can take photos inside and still have beautiful photos.
We also have ample artificial light, including two beautiful, large chandeliers. These lights are all dimmable so that you can have the perfect mood lighting during your reception.
We have four great houses near the venue to accommodate all of your lodging needs. The Bethany House and The Bethany Lodge are both walking distance from the venue. They sleep 8-12 people. There are two larger properties that are just a short drive away that can accommodate larger groups. Go to our lodging page to find out more information!
The bridal suite is perfectly light and airy for beautiful photos. There is a full-length mirror and ample seating. There’s also a makeup bar with chairs to sit in while the bride and bridesmaids get hair and makeup done, as well as a private toilet room. The bridal suite is connected to the main women’s restroom so that everyone can spread out with plenty of mirror space.
The turf lawn is 30 feet X80 feet and has string lights hanging overhead. This is an excellent ceremony spot, as well as a place to have yard games during cocktail hour and the reception. The great thing about turf is that even if it’s been raining leading up to your wedding, there will be no mud for your wedding guests to have to deal with.
The groom’s suite is very spacious and has all things manly. It is rustic with a large elk mount, and some deer mounts, too. There is a large smart TV if the groomsmen want to watch sports games during the day, as well as a shower, in case anyone gets sweaty outside.
We have a large covered patio that is 15 feet X 100 feet. This is a great place for cocktail hour. It’s also large enough to seat several tables, so if you’re planning on having a large wedding, this provides additional space for guests to eat dinner.
We provide 350 indoor cross-back wooden chairs, 350 outdoor white garden chairs, and 40 tables. We have 20 round tables (60 inch) and 20 rectangle tables (8 ft). For an additional fee, we also have gray linens with the same specifications. They can be rented for $16 a piece.
Yes. The role of the coordinator is to help ensure that the wedding day goes smoothly. This includes checking vendors in as they arrive on site, answering questions about the venue, and helping the ceremony and reception run smoothly. This does not include wedding planning, communicating with vendors beforehand, decorating, flipping the room, cleaning up, etc.
Yes! As an add on, we have event coordinating services available for an added cost.
Yes. If there are more than 150 wedding guests and/or alcohol is being served, an additional security guard is required. We will secure both of the security guards for you, but we only cover one of them. The second guard will be $40 an hour for the duration of your wedding. This amount will be taken out of your security deposit. We cover up to 6 hours for the first security guard.
Our setup team will have your floor plan set up before you arrive at the venue, but they will not be available on-site to flip the room during your event.
No, but we do have a preferred vendor list that we’d be happy to send you after you book.
Yes. However, in order to serve alcohol, you must hire a licensed TABC bartender.
Because we have weddings Friday-Sunday, we are unable to include a rehearsal in our wedding packages. However, one month before your wedding, if there is not an event booked on the day before your wedding, you can secure a two-hour rehearsal on the property for a fee of $400.
