Rustic eleganceReviewed on 10/16/2015 Jessica M
Absolutely stunning! I fell so in love with this venue, that I had no desire to go look at anymore. My fiance and I were hooked. This place provides rustic elegance.. Which perfectly describes us. We wanted that relaxing, home feeling all while having the perfect interior and landscape. The bridal suite was so perfect! It is fit for a huge bridal party. There is also a separate room for the guys. This place accommodates all needs. Not only did this venue have it all, but the oweners were there for any questions or visits you needed. We are so thankful for Nicole and Eric for going above and beyond for us. I am the type for person that needs to see and do, rather than invisioning it. Nicole was more than Willing to find time for me to come and look over everything there as much as needed. Even allowed for my bridal pictures to be taken there! I am so thankful we found d this little slice of heaven.
Amazing!Reviewed on 1/30/2016 Rhea E
Poetry Springs was the perfect place to have our wedding. If you are looking for natural beauty and an outdoor ceremony but still want all the amenities, this is the place for you! With every detail planned out, from strategic outdoor outlet, sounds systems, huge bridal suite...everything you need but without feeling like you are in a city "wedding factory" type place. Nicole and her staff were so easy to work with, allowing us to really make our wedding our own! Our giant mastiff as a ring bearer? sure! lawn games for 25 kids? no problem. bring in a made to order churros stand? absolutely. And our guests LOVED it! they couldn't believe what a beautiful gem was tucked away out there. Everyone remarked on what a beautiful and well set up venue it was! I was 100% happy with my choice.
Amazing VenueReviewed on 9/24/2014 Amanda P
Poetry Springs was the most amazing (and perfect) venue for our wedding. Not only did we find that it met our every need and desire, but our family, friends and wedding party continue to rave about how wonderful it is (weeks later). Nicole and her husband were amazing in helping plan, prepare, and execute our special day. More specifically, we made numerous visits before our wedding, and Nicole was always on-site ready to help, answer questions, or provide some pointers as to what she had seen work there before. On the actual day, everything was set up way in advance of our arrival, and everything was perfectly in place as we had planned. One of the best things about this venue is that you get to pick your own vendors, so you truly can create your dream wedding from scratch. Because the venue is so reasonably priced, it is actually possible! Coming from downtown Dallas (where we live) and comparing Poetry Springs with all the other venues we visited, we found that there was simply no comparison. Poetry Springs was much more reasonably priced, allowed for far more creativity, and provided a unique setting that was the "something different" we were looking for. From one bride to another, you can go on Etsy and/or Pinterest and find MANY decorations and wedding day items for a "rustic elegance" wedding, which fits perfectly with this venue. Nicole has also provided numerous pictures on her website to offer ideas if you don't want to start from whole cloth. She can also provide you with numerous vendors to choose from, many of whom we used and loved working with. Finally, the last "something different" I loved about Poetry Springs was the Facebook page that allows you to plan a seating arrangement. As someone very visual, this was extremely helpful in planning our special day and ensuring that the overall feel was perfect. We truly can't put into words how great our experience was here, but this is our best try. If you're looking for something all your own style and not your typical "Dallas wedding," you should check out Poetry Springs or, at a minimum, contact Nicole Nanyes for more information. I wouldn't change a thing about our special day, and it all started with this perfect venue!
Beautiful venue & loved Nicole! Very friendly & accommodating! Highly recommend!
So, so great! Wonderful staff and beautiful venue.
I absolutely love this venue. Everyone who works there is so nice and willing to help you out in anyway possible. The ceremony site is beautiful and the indoor reception area is setup with everything you need from a bar area to a buffet to serve food from. I wish I would have utilized the projection and screen to do a slideshow, but I love that it is an option. Any bride will love the bridal suite. It is equipped with a bluetooth stereo and the grooms room has a tv that we had a game console hooked up to. You will not be disappointed with this venue. I received so many compliments with people telling me it was one of the most beautiful weddings they have ever been to.
Our experience with the Springs Events Venues was fantastic! The day after I proposed, the now-wife and I planned a half day trip out to the Terrell/Rockwall location and instantly fell in love with it! We were thrilled with the beautiful interior space as well as the lovely scenery outside. It made for the perfect backdrop for our special day. The staff at The Springs in Rockwall were exceptionally helpful from start to finish and I highly recommend their services if you are looking for a great team, a gorgeous locale and peace of mind for your big day!
We absolutely loved this venue. The staff was really nice from the day we toured the venue to the day of our wedding. When we left the venue for the first time there was no doubt that it was for us! Nicole was very quick to respond to every text and email we sent. I highly recommend The Springs in Rockwall because not only is it absolutely beautiful but the staff will go out of their way to make your wedding day special!
This venue was absolutely beautiful for my wedding; very classy and rustic. Nicole was amazing to work with. Amazing venue with an even better staff! Only suggestion I would have is to change out the tulle and christmas lights they use for decoration hanging from the beams; we paid them to take it down, because it looks a little cheasy. Overall, couldn't have picked a better venue.
Nicole was a dream. The space was well beyond expectation in look and feel. I have to extend a special SPECIAL SPECIAL thanks to Eric who was a rock for us and a confidant and a great friend to my wife and I. I've never come across a venue staff member with so much genuine care and attention to detail as he. Eric you are an incredible man!!! I won't detail just what you did... But it was well above and beyond. Nika and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!! Give our best to the entire team!!! Best!!!
My husband and I absolutely love love love The Springs Rockwall. They made our day special. This venue is so beautiful and the people are so sweet. AMAZING!!
Most beautiful venue and the nicest staff that responds to all your crazy bridal questions!
I LOVE POETRY SPRINGS!!!! AND I LOVE THE MANAGER, NICOLE!!!! She is the ABSOLUTE BEST! She was so patient with my many questions and made my wedding planning process so peaceful!!!! I literally don't know what I would have done without her!!!! I'm never getting married again, but if I did ;) hahaha, I would absolutely do it all over again at Poetry Springs!
This venue is over the top gorgeous! They have the most accommodating staff ever. They worked so hard to make sure my husband and I had the wedding of our dreams. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day and without The Springs and their incredibly helpful staff, it wouldn't have been nearly as magical. The lady from their staff that took picture for their Facebook page captured an incredible sweet moment between my dad and I. No one else was in the room (we didn't even realize she was there). It was a very special moment that I now have forever. I was so grateful for it!
My husband and I couldn't of asked for a more beautiful place to have our wedding. It was perfect! Nicole and her husband did everything to help us on our day. We felt very special, which is definitely how it is supposed to be. Everything turned out better then we could of wished. All our guests gushed about how much fun and beautiful it was. I LOVE LOVE LOVED it! If only I could turn back time and do it all again :).
Poetry Springs was the only venue we visited, but we instantly fell in love with it! The venue was perfect, the bridal suite was perfect and the staff there at the venue helped out tremendously any time I had questions or concerns. Overall, we had our dream wedding come true here at this venue! My husband and I couldn't have chose a better fit for us! :)
Fabulous!!Reviewed on 1/26/2016 Hannah B
Loved this venue! We used it for both the ceremony and reception! It was beautiful! The staff was great and wonderful to work with! They answered all of our questions.
Perfect!Reviewed on 1/13/2016
Booking our wedding at Poetry Springs was the best decision we made! Everything about this venue is perfect, inside and out! And Nicole is the sweetest - Her and her husband did anything they could to make sure everything was perfect. I will recommend this venue to everyone I know getting married! :-)
PoetryReviewed on 1/13/2016 Justin B
Poetry Springs Event Center was an amazing venue with a beautiful outdoor and indoor site. The venue decorates itself. As the bride, I had to add very minimal decor to make the venue turn out looking great! That is one of the things I loved, you can add a lot of flare to really show your personality or minimal and the venue is still gorgeous!
Poetry Springs Event CenterReviewed on 12/07/2015 Jamie B
I could not have put on such a fun and beautiful wedding had Poetry Springs not been the back drop for the event. Nicole and her family at PSEC communicated and helped us for over a year and never once made me feel as though I was being a bridezilla (though I'm sure I was). The knowledge and suggestions given, whether vendor or décor, were very very VERY helpful. Each vendor she suggests were lovely to speak with as well. I truly cannot express how great of an experience it was!!!
Poetry Springs was a BEAUTIFUL backdrop for my wedding day! I was impressed with the landscaping and the cleanliness of the reception area which was wonderfully transformed for my style. Ceremony / reception chairs and a variety of tables are available for your use which proved to be really helpful! The only downfall would have to have been the gravel parking lot, especially for female guests in high heels, but this became the least of my concerns considering all the positives. The venue manager, Nicole, was extremely helpful to answer all of my questions promptly (and I had a lot of questions). I highly recommend Poetry Springs!!
Wedding ReceptionReviewed on 10/29/2015
Poetry Springs is a gorgeous venue to have a wedding, party, or any other memorable event at. Nicole was very accomodating and professional. I would recommend Poetry Springs to anyone!
Great Wedding Venue!Reviewed on 10/12/2015
Poetry Springs was everything I expected it to be! Great service and quality all around. The only thing I would warn brides about is in regard to the lighting (sun light). Make sure and have your reception early enough for your photographer to have good lighting outside. The trees make it somewhat difficult to take pictures. Other than that, I could not be happier with Poetry Springs!
My wedding was everything I wanted it to be and more!Reviewed on 9/15/2015 Adda M
Both my husband and I knew we wanted to get married at Poetry Springs as soon as we walked into the venue. We had already toured multiple venues and were so confused. As soon as we saw this place and met Nicole, we knew we were at the right place. Our wedding was absolutely gorgeous. All of our guests loved it! Nicole and her husband were beyond helpful. We feel very blessed to have been able to work with them. Thank you.
Mother of the BrideReviewed on 8/06/2015
What can I say about Poetry Springs....one word FABULOUS. When I first met Nicole, the General Manager, it was as though I had known her forever. The venue was exactly what my daughter and her fiance' wanted. Nicole and her staff were professional, courteous, friendly and made you feel so at ease. There was never a time when I had a question, that I was made to feel unimportant. If I had to leave a message, my call was returned promptly. If you chose Poetry Springs, you certainly won't be making a mistake!!!!
