We LOVE The Nest! The barn is absolutely breathtaking in person. You can definitely see how much thought, detail and love went into it's design. This gorgeous 8,000 square foot white barn is nestled on 6 beautiful acres. It was love at first sight! Whitney is not only a sweet...

My fiance and I took our engagement pictures here last Friday and this venue is absolutely stunning!! I fell in love with the white barn look from floor to ceiling and the beautiful hanging chandeliers! This place feels so bridal and makes you feel exactly like a princess!... Read More Whitney, the Venue Coordinator, was also fantastic! She was sooo easy to work with which I have come to realize is rare in the vendors world these days. One of my favorite things besides the chandeliers, is the twinkle lighted outdoor patio. My fiance and I took pictures of us dancing under them and I can only imagine how romantic it would be on our actual wedding day! Also, my fiance LOVED the groom's quarters and fell in love with their custom couch - so much that he made me ask where they bought it from lol. This place is such a gem in the beautiful North Texas Countryside and we couldn't be any happier with it!

The Nest was a fantastic venue for my daughter’s wedding on 3/3/18. The reception barn is truly impressive and the grounds are very nice also. Not only is the venue great, but the family running it is equally great. Whitney, Chris, and LaWanna were all super to deal with, very...

Our original venue, the Grand Ivory, had fire and water code violations which caused us to have to move the venue at the very last minute. The Nest was super accommodating and literally saved my daughter’s wedding. We can not thank them enough!!!
