Rose Chapel -If
you want a beautiful wedding chapel - but also are on a tight budget, we
HIGHLY recommend the Rose Chapel!
This is a WONDERFUL Location. A hundred+ year old church that is a REAL church - stained glass and great reception room PLUS a HUGE ballroom with bar in the back.
Thistle Hill -
Classic museum house
Thistle Hill is a premier wedding location and a Tarrent Co. Wedding hot spot. We have officiated over 100 weddings there. Feature? Beautiful stair case! Go look-see. This is NOT a discount location, but it is very beautiful!
Another beautiful classic home is the Eldelman-McFarlin House and
we have officiated about 2 dozen very beautiful weddings there.
Fort Worth Botanical Gardens: on N. on University off I 30 (A-)
We have officiated over 100 weddings at the Botanical Gardens and it remains a favorite outdoor site. They charge $150 with multiple sites to selection from (2 hour period) and last we heard the charge is $150. They do have restrictions more than some couples wish. (For couple only or small groups that do not want to pay $150, you can marry across the street at Trinity Park for free and then visit the Gardens for free.)
(817) 871-7686 - for the Gardens
(817) 247-1370 for officiant (minister or JP)
Fort Worth Water Gardens: located near downtown
right off I 30 (FREE!)
This location is free to use with many spots to select from. Have officiated dozens of weddings there. It is free to use.
Dallas Arboretum: (A++)
This is a very popular spot with many sites to select from - indoors, outdoors or gazebo. Overlooking White Rock lake. It is
possibly the most beautiful outdoor location in the metroplex. I grew up near this location and as a child used to play on the estate before made into an Arboretum. Even if you do not marry there, you really should see the Dallas Arboretum on Garland Rd. in Dallas.
There are too many sites at White Rock lake to name. Pick your spot. We have officiated weddings on docks, under trees, at the Dreyfus Club and Winfree Point (Hon. Mark Ovard's high school prom dance was at Winfree point back-when...) and the Big Thicket.
To reserve the Dreyfus Club or Winfree Point - contact the Dallas Parks Dept. in blue section of phone book or information. For other locations, just pick your spot! For officiant - (972) 445-1329
Heritage Park & The Garden Center - Irving
Lighted gazebo and we offer a special price for weddings we officiate there. You also can rent the small building (cheaply) for the reception. There also is the indoor Irving Garden Center on Senter St. between Shady Grove and 6th street - also cheap to rent. The Garden Center has a kitchen, chairs, stained glass and big trees.
North on Northgate (west of Story) is Victoria Park which has a rustic outdoor am phi-theater - couples have used this for torch lit night weddings and many others - duck pond at the back of the park.
For details, call Irving Parks Dept. For officiant to conduct the wedding - call (972) 445-1329
Arlington Lake House:
While not the most beautiful inside - the price certainly is right! Right on the lake and with a chitchatted in the back, you can rent this lake house for the entire day for under $200. We have officiated about 10 weddings there. Call the Arlington Parks Department for reservations.
MARRY AT ANTARI...
The Dallas skyline is defined by Atari - the dandelion of the downtown skyline. There are three levels - all of which rotate giving a full view of Dallas in all directions. The lower level has private reception rooms, the middle level has exquisite dining, and the top level is the bar.
Couples have married on each level - from small groups to receptions. The night owls particularly enjoy the lights of Dallas in the background... and forever after when you see the Dallas skyline, you can have fond memories of you special day.
|Big Costly Wedding or Quickie Courthouse Wedding?|
|Many couples think the choice is being a big, costly formal wedding OR a 1-minute quickie wedding in a government office after waiting in a hallway.|
LOOKING FOR THAT WONDERFULLY ROMANTIC
LITTLE CHAPEL OR CHURCH
with NO fuss, NO judgmentalism, and NOT draining your money and time?
|In the center of the Metroplex is a BEAUTIFUL old chapel for non-denominational, Christian or non-religious civil marriage ceremonies. No witnesses required, couple-only is not rare - or bring your small group of relatives/friends. No fuss, no questioning and the ceremony will be sincere, real, meaningful and truly your unique special day - for the rest of your lives together. You decide the nature of ceremony and vows you wish - in detail or just say whether you wish it religious or not. You can read the ceremonies and vows on the website if wish (not required) or may any changes you wish. It is YOUR marriage, not the courthouse's wedding.|
HUNDREDS OF FREE ALTERNATIVES TO
SITTING IN A GOVERNMENT HALLWAY...
...WAITING FOR YOUR NUMBER TO BE CALLED LIKE YOU ARE CATTLE
| In addition to this
wonderful and romantic little chapel in the woods, we can suggest
beautiful - and FREE - parks, gazebos and other charming locations you
can return to years later to reflect on one of the most wonderful and
should be more beautiful days of your life - or pick your location - you
new home or apartment or favorite spot - whether a park, at a lake or
the restaurant you proposed at or first met, some couples will pick
their parents or best friends house. And a Civil or Religious Officiant
for your wedding and marriage license. Witnesses allowed - but NEVER
required. It can just be the 2 of you. Make your wedding day YOUR
It really IS a very important moment of your life and the quality of the day will reflect in the quality of your marriage in wonderful ways.
