Today’s venue walkthough is of Hawthorn Hills Ranch in Denton, Texas. We just love the rolling hills and the Southern Chic vibe! Here’s Amanda from Hawthorn Hills Ranch to tell us more:

Tell us a bit about your venue:

Hawthorn Hills is a southern chic venue with a one of a kind view and a modern style. Located on North Texas rolling hills just minutes from accommodations we allow our Bride’s and their guests to enjoy the moment and forget about the busy life moments away. We love that our couples are able to personalize their event and make it their own at our venue, and can welcome up to 250 indoors with tenting on the property allowed as well.

What makes your business unique?

Family owned, we opened our doors with a passion for helping other and with the experience of event planning coupled with the knowledge of running a business. We like to not only help our couple’s dream come true but to give them a reliable service with a personal touch.

Only allowing 1 event a day is just one of the many ways we  keep the focus on our Brides and the pressure off. With different packages available we meet the various needs of couples to provide them what they want and are looking for. Our venue itself is unique in the sense that it has a country setting but focuses on a modern rather than rustic style.

Do you target any particular niche?

One of the biggest goals we have is to welcome couples and let their imagination run. Our venue has multiple features that allows each one the ability to make it their own. With a view unlike any other, we offer a remote country setting with a polished modern style venue. This allows our couples to dress up or down their event as much as they’d like.

Our brides are typically looking for a getaway without the drive. A location that offers a beautiful backdrop to enhance their day and yet still allows for an elegant evening.

What’s your favorite part of the job?

We love meeting with our couples. From the first tour to our planning meeting and then of course on the day, nothing gets us more excited than hearing their plans and doing our part to make their dreams a reality. Seeing a smile on our couple’s faces is why we do this, being a part of a memory that will last forever is incomparable.

How do you help couples customize their weddings?

From our different packages to the options for decorating we love seeing the couple’s personalities come out in their event. Our venue has the ability to easily be transformed for the most modern or rustic styled brides.

With light gray walls, elevated ceilings and large windows our venue is a backdrop to make dreams a reality. Of course we allow our couples to choose their vendors, and encourage them to ask any questions in regards to decorations so that if it is possible we can make it happen.

What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned?

Being prepared is the best tool a couple and professional can use. Choosing the right fit in vendors and in a venue is essential for couples to enjoy their day. When it comes down to it, if you have chosen the right professionals for you then the only thing you have left to do after months of preparing on your wedding day is to enjoy & soak it all in.


Any tips for brides on the hunt for a venue?

Don’t be afraid to ask questions! We love when brides know what they want, or ask questions to figure it out. By knowing what is important to you (whether it is the ability to bring in your own caterer or to hand strung lights) we can help from day 1. When booking a venue if you know your most important features you can ensure you don’t have regret down the road – a beautiful venue may not be so perfect if it can’t fit your entire guest list in the doors.
