Take a Look at Our Spaces
Upon booking, couples and their guests can enjoy access to any and all areas of The Gardens Venue. Check out all our different spaces on the property below.
GRIST MILL& BRIDGE
The Gardens is home to the iconic and only industrial-age water mill in the American Southwest. It not only adds charm and serene water sounds to events on site, but also houses a spacial bridal suite inside. Containing a gorgeous balcony overseeing the property and an exclusive view of the botanical gardens, it provides multiple ideal locations for photos.
Our grandfather tree was the largest in the grove of a 60 year old, established, 250 acre pecan tree orchard. Circled by green grass and limestone pavers, the grandfather tree is often the center of beautiful wedding ceremonies, table setups, or an array of various vendors. Sitting just beyond the tree are views of Pecan Lake and the rest of the property for a natural ambiance facing both ways.
Beyond just the beauty, naturalistic, and photogenic appeal of the venue, almost all of the plants in the themed gardens are edible －fruits, vegetables, herbs or edible flowers have been individually selected for their aesthetic style and elegance. These are harvested for our fully-operational industrial-age water mill and then replanted, making each season full of new colors, palettes, and plants to enjoy!
GRASS AREA+DANCE FLOOR
Adjacent to the grandfather tree, our 20x20 dance floor is surrounded by an expansive grass lawn and lush trees. This enchanting space ensures the perfect stage for vendors, table scapes, or even ceremonies, offering a stunning blend of natural beauty and a dance-ready surface.
This spacious bridal suite is discreetly placed within the charming grist mill building overlooking the gardens. Boasting plush couches, a large vanity with seating and mirrors, and a balcony offering scenic views of the property, this haven is perfectly designed for wedding preparations, leisure, and capturing timeless first-look moments. With ample room for hairstyling, makeup, and relaxation, the suite ensures that brides and their bridal parties enjoy every facet of their whole wedding day.
A sophisticated space nestled on the venue's edge, offering the groom and groomsmen a stylish on-site space to get ready before the wedding and lounge between events.
More photos to come! Positioned at the venue's forefront, this large pre-lit temporary event tent provides both shaded refuge from unpredictable weather on your event day, and a stunning setting that many use for banquets, receptions, or cocktail hours. The temporary tent has an enchanting twinkle-light entrance and panoramic views encompassing the lake, grandfather tree, and charming grist mill.
Near the venue's entrance, many guests use this circular gathering space as an area for savoring cocktail hours, intimate ceremonies, a lounge area for between events, or situating welcome and gift tables and/or vendors such as a band on the limestone tiles. This area has a close view of the botanical gardens and grist mill, with the grandfather tree and dance floor directly across Pecan Lake on the other side.
