After years of assisting brides realize their wedding wishes and whims from planning to preparation and all wedding floral, a dream of a gorgeous venue where brides and grooms can be pampered on their big day began to blossom in our hearts. A dream so grand offering the rustic appeal of Aubrey, yet mere minutes from the DFW metroplex has taken root and grown among the 11 acres of our old stately oaks and trailing ivies here in the heart of Texas. An unforgettable place to link families and friends, to lay a firm foundation and to witness the voicing of vows awaits your wedding hopes and wishes. Yes, this is Oak + Ivy and this is where your dreams come true!
Oak + Ivy is here to enhance a bride’s vision, to assist in the comfort level of everyone involved in the preparations for the big day, and to provide ample space for even the largest guest list! Love of family drives us and our passion is fueled when we here at Oak + Ivy are privileged to share in the beginnings of two people and two families joining in a lifetime of love.
Our large white barn is ideally situated in the center of towering, mature oaks on one side and a sprawling meadow on the other, providing plenty of space for ceremony and reception options. This French Country inspired barn offers a large “Great Hall” with impressive 42 ft ceilings adorned with elegant chandeliers to capture the beauty of an evening soiree. Or if your dream is a morning or afternoon affair, the hall’s stately windows invite the sun’s light in illuminating the barn’s tasteful décor. Every bride’s creative vision will be showcased by our neutral color scheme and casual yet elegant backdrop.
The barn features a luxurious and spacious bridal suite, with a make-up counter and bathroom, to comfortably welcome a large party of women and all their accoutrements for the full day of bridal preparation. The groom and his groomsmen will feel equally welcomed in the groom’s suite for a day. The hallmark of this suite is the game room where the gentlemen will have plenty of room for entertainment and a full bathroom with a shower.
Oak + Ivy has two built-in bars, one up-stairs and one down-stairs, a large and well-functioning catering kitchen and plenty of bathrooms to accommodate every guest.
Another treasured feature of Oak + Ivy is our pavilion, complete with a spectacular stone fireplace. This impressive covered open-air space accommodates the desire for both an indoor and an outdoor experience and is positioned with easy access right outside the door from the first-floor bar area. Perfect for a sunset cocktail hour or a covered outdoor ceremony – the pavilion is a signature element of this grand facility that will be fondly spoken of in wedding memories soon to be made.
The expansive grounds of Oak + Ivy allow the bride and groom complete freedom to plan their ceremony either at sunset with the sun lazily drifting behind them, or under the stars of a limitless Texas sky, or perhaps in the shade of a beautiful Aubrey afternoon. With 11 acres of heavily canopied space and several ponds, a barn designed with a bride’s dreams at its essence and our hopes of making dreams come true, we invite you to come tour Oak + Ivy and chat with us about your wedding day dreams.
