Sherry and the team at Flying V are the most incredible people you will ever meet. The story of how the ranch came to be is sweet enough to make you want the venue in the first place, and then the quality of service accompanied with it is just a perfect match for any bride... Read More wanting a sweet southern wedding. The Flying V is quaint and precious. The staff makes sure you don't worry about a thing on your big day and you even get a day of coordinator who makes sure everything is where it's supposed to be. They are incredible and I cannot say enough about the venue and the people pouring themselves into it. I felt like family of Sherry from day one and so well taken care of. I could text her at any time and have an answer- which happened often. Use this venue. We got a ton of comments about how perfect our wedding was and it all starts with the perfect venue.

This was the easiest choice I had to make. The flying V Ranch was not only the most beautiful, unique venue I had ever seen, but the staff was the nicest I have ever dealt with.

In the 9 months that I was planning my wedding, I developed a great relationship with the owner, Sherry. She makes you feel as if you are a part of her big family and she gets you SO excited for your big day. Her and her daughter have such an eye for decor that in the year they have been open, they have transformed this from a ranch into a knockout venue that people from all over the state are talking about. My wedding day was seamless. I had no hiccups or last minute scares. With the help of Sherry and her staff, I was able to actually enjoy my wedding day and spend time relaxing with my bridesmaids. Pair this venue with Classic Florist & Gifts,Cakes by Leisha & 3 Birds Photography and I can promise that you will have the wedding of your dreams-within budget!

I can't put into words how much my husband and I, and our families, love this venue and Sherry & Celia. Truly amazing people who have found their calling! :)

We were the Groom's parents, and initially reluctant to have a wedding outside, due to weather factor. Our son and his bride chose the Flying V, because they "were not like a wedding factory". My son said the staff was much more personal, and genuine. They did not have... Read More stringent rules on the catering and beverage category. The price was more affordable than in the Fort Worth metroplex. The Flying V setting and decor is very popular among the young people (age 25-30). Things I remember about that night were, the East side of the venue, where guests gathered (after ceremony, before reception) was shaded at 6:15 ish, and very nice for our crowd to enjoy a cold beverage, and snacks outside, as they waited for pictures to finish, and to entrance to reception hall to open. People really seemed to enjoy the relaxed setting out there, even though everyone was dressed up. Before the nuptials, I saw the Groom's man cave, and it was very masculine, air conditioned to the max, and nice enough for the guys to sit down and just chill out until game time. The restrooms were also just fine for our crowd of 175 guests. They were clean, well-stocked, and cool as well. Our son's wedding was May 7, 2017. With all of the decorations, the reception area was just lovely. I was worried about the lower part of the barn (too short for tall people?). It dips down just a step; but, it wasn't too short, very roomy, and from what I remember. It accommodated our guests amply. There were lots of tables, but still plenty of room to walk around, not feel cramped. A nice sitting area was on the lower part, and it was just so convenient for us to stand, and greet a few guests who were just arriving, and didn't want to stand out in the sun. They had a couple of couches there, and you could put your lipstick on, check your phone and look out the window, have a nice hug and short visit before the celebration began. The upper area of reception hall was also very nice, and roomy enough for a dance floor with tables surrounding it. The food was outside, which I think helped make it much roomier, and didn't heat up the Reception Hall. There is a Shabby Chic atmosphere to this venue, and it just made it darling with all of the decorations, and lighting, etc. Our bride was on a budget, but it looked so precious, and fancy! Celia, the "Day of Coordinator" was very very nice and nurturing. As the Groom's parents, she came and introduced herself, gave us the cue for certain traditional parts of the reception. She was soft spoken, unassuming and just almost like a mom to me. (My mom wasn't able to attend due to her illness). I needed Celia that night! Overall, I think it was a complete success. I forgot to mention, that the ceremony outside was very sweet, and the church pews and stage worked out well also. I wish the very best to the Flying V!

The ranch was the perfect setting for my vintage bohemian wedding- white walls, white washed wood floor, vintage pews and the 100 year old bride cottage plus the many... Read More antique pieces available for use. My (now) husband and I were immediately welcomed by Sherry when we first visited the venue and loved hearing her heartwarming story and vision for this family ranch transformed into a one of a kind venue. It had so much character! We loved that It DIDN'T have this wedding factory feel where the goal is just to pump out weddings like other venues we visited. I can't even put into words how wonderful the staff was answering all my questions and reassuring me. I know I emailed Page at LEAST 100 times over the course of planning my wedding. Sherry even ordered extra glasses to accommodate my many beverage choices and guest count. AND the very detailed person that I am was so blessed by the 30 day meeting where we went over EVERYTHING for my day to make sure we were all on the same page. Celia is the sweetest and made me feel like an absolute queen on my wedding day. We did have some issues with the sound during the ceremony but nothing a longer rehearsal wouldn't fix. At the end of the day we felt like we have become part of the Flying V family. This place, these people, I will always hold dear and the best day of my life I will never forget.

Flying V Ranch is an amazing, full-service venue. The owners and staff went above and beyond my expectations and carefully handled every detail as if they were planning for their own wedding. If you are looking for a beautiful setting, with charming details and a reliable staff,... Read More this is the place for you. Here are a few specific reasons I'm glad I chose this venue: 1. I really wanted an outdoor ceremony, but was worried about rain since my wedding was in April. Flying V Ranch has an incredible outdoor ceremony space and two back-up options in case of rain including a covered pavilion or an option to flip the indoor reception space. 2. I didn't hire a wedding planner. The owners of Flying V Ranch are incredibly helpful and provide you with a checklist to go over all of the details you definitely didn't think about. They also provide a day of coordinator who you meet with 30 days prior to your wedding date to iron everything out. 3. The space has a ton of vintage details and charm along with a gorgeous chandelier and string lighting. You hardly need any decor because the space is so beautiful on it's own. When it comes to decor though, they have many options you can rent and the table cloths and napkins come in so many color options and are included as part of their package. 4. The outdoor space (covered pavilion and beer garden) around the indoor reception area is perfect for guests to visit and roam around in. It keeps people from feeling trapped at their tables all night. 5. They've recently made updates to the already awesome venue including new beautiful flooring and chairs along with a gorgeous arch and white pews at the ceremony site. I can't say enough great things about this place. My guests and vendors commented all night on how perfect it was and how nice and helpful the owners and staff were. Huge thanks to owners Sherry and Page and my day of coordinator, Karen!
