Thistle Springs Ranch (TSR) - OMG where do I start?? There are just no words powerful enough to describe my wedding at TSR. Everything at this venue was to perfection!! We had our wedding outside under the arch and it was beautiful! Ann did our flowers. So if you get to be... Read More honored to have her she will not disappoint. The time and love she puts into ordering exactly what we wanted was amazing. The inside was stunning! The entire staff was so pleasing and all acted like it was a family member of theirs getting married. We have now made some life longs friends with Ann, Tom, Cason & Diana! We were afraid we would be crowded with our 250 guests, but they arranged the tables with plenty of room even for a large dance floor. Venue: Everything extremely clean, organized & property was beautifully manicured. Highly, highly recommend this venue - you will not be sorry.

Everything about Thistle Springs Ranch was perfect. Cason, his wife, our day of coordinator and the wranglers were so loving and calm. Their joy radiated to everyone around them and kept me calm throughout the entire day. They were always available and easy to contact when my... Read More husband and I had questions. The venue is clean, beautiful and tucked away from the busyness of the DFW metroplex. From the moment we went to tour the venue, we were sold. They gave us tips and advice but were open to any ideas we had. Everything is handled so well and it truly made it the greatest day of our lives. Our guests still talk about how perfect the venue was.

A lot of the reviews offer high praise on the execution of the wedding but getting to that point was short lived for my fiance and I on our venue hunt. My family is from Hawaii and his is from Texas so we are having to pick a state before we can pick a date and schedule. It... Read More seemed like the person on the phone was not interested in helping us in this search because she would not schedule a venue tour with us. My fiance mentioned we were finishing college before and she insisted we look at the pricing before booking (all of which we had already gathered). So I don't know exactly why we were not taken seriously, if it was an age or a financial guess, but it was extremely dissapointing to have one of our top venue picks be so rude when we tried to reach out. If you are considering thistle springs, I hope you don't have the same experience I did, but it sure does make our location choice easier!

Thistle Springs was the absolute best place to get married. I have so many good things to say about them. First of all the venue is gorgeous. It is so secluded and quiet out there. My pictures turned out so well, because there isn't an area that isn't stunning. It was a little... Read More drive, but so worth it. The distance didn't stop any of my guests from coming. Secondly, the staff is incredible. One of the staff members helped me down the stairs, puffed out my dress and put my veil on for me. They were always there to help and had everything set up perfectly. By the time my husband and I got to our seats at the reception, one of the staff members had already brought our dinner to the table. They were unbelievably wonderful!! Lastly, Lagniappe Desings was outstanding. I was speachless at the beautiful wedding Ann and her team created. I told her I wanted white and greenery and the results were incredible. She is truly gifted and a blessing to work. She is so worth working with! The flowers were the most beautiful I have ever seen and all of my guests are still talking about them. I even have people who weren't at my wedding contacting me about having Ann do their flowers. Overall if you're considering Thistle Springs -- do it!! My wedding day was perfect and I wouldn't do a thing differently!

Thistle Springs Ranch was the perfect venue for my husband and I! Not only because the location itself is beautiful, but also because the owners of the venue were a joy to work with.

I couldn't have asked for a better team of people to work with! I will be recommending this venue to anyone and everyone.

I cannot say enough amazing things about Thistle Springs Ranch. For starters it is STUNNING if you are looking for a rustic chic wedding . Its a barn but its more like a Ralph Lauren barn. The staff was so helpful during our process of finding all the vendors we needed since you... Read More bring in everything except the tables and chairs. The day of our wedding it was glumly and cloudy so we had our ceremony inside the barn. The decorator, Ann Wright, made the barn look AMAZING we didn't even miss having the ceremony outside. The site has so much natural beautiful all of our photographs turned out amazing. The staff during our ceremony was extremely helpful and always made sure my husband and I had anything we needed. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants a rustic wedding away from the city.

Two of my daughters have been married at Thistle Springs Ranch in the last two years. It is definitely a place near and dear to our hearts. When my family visited TSR a few years ago with our first little bride, we knew we had found exactly what we had been looking for: an... Read More intimate, peaceful, beautifully landscaped ceremony site, and a sophisticated, upscale barn perfect for our reception. We fell in love with the Wright family as well. They are so kind and caring and are determined to give each bride and groom a perfect day. We used Lagniappe for our decor and florals at both weddings. Ann Wright, the owner and designer of Lagniappe, has impeccable taste and talent. She manages to capture the exact vibe, look, and feel a bride is wanting for her wedding. Our oldest daughter's wedding had a vintage Texas charm feel, and more recently, this wedding had an organic, boho vibe with more natural elements. Ann used moss, succulents, and antlers to give us the organic feel we sought. She puts her heart and soul into her work, and we've been profoundly touched at each wedding to see how much effort she puts into making our special day stunningly beautiful. Two perfect weddings at Thistle Springs Ranch, and each of my daughters have described their Thistle Springs Ranch wedding as the best day of their life.

If you're looking for the perfect rustic venue for your wedding, your search is done. The owners of Thistle have done an amazing job. Everything on the property is extremely well kept and maintained. When inside the venue, it speaks for itself. We went with minimal decorations... Read More because we wanted all of the dark wood to truly stand out on its own.

Fast forward to the week of the wedding, we ended up getting married during the worst snow storm of the year. Needless to say, there were just a few things that didn’t go according to plan. The TSR team and Cason worked with us, and were in constant communication with us the entire time, even updating us on road conditions, weather, etc. Cason, Kathleen, and the whole TSR team were beyond accommodating, and made a normally stressful situation as stress free as possible.

We were absolutely blown away by their level of service. From the second you walk through the door, they make sure that any and all of your needs are taken care of. Kathleen is one of the sweetest people you will meet, and she goes above and beyond for you in every way possible. Everyone on the TSR team was so sweet and accommodating, we really can’t sing their praises enough. It seemed that even our guests and bridal party took notice of the exceptional service we received, as we had a multitude of compliments and thank you’s from our guests in regards to the accommodating spirit of the staff. Our hearts will forever be filled with gratitude for all that Thistle Springs did to make sure we had the wedding of our dreams. This truly is a one of a kind wedding venue with a level of service that is hard to match.
