Wedding Ideas & Event Venues

 

A Short List of Wedding Venues we Like

One of the great things about running a great wedding carriage company is that you get to go to weddings and events at some wonderful places. People ask me all the time about the best places for weddings and proposals in Sundance Square in Fort Worth. I want to share some of my favorite places for weddings along with ideas for proposals, anniversaries and having fun in Sundance Square and the surrounding Dallas Fort Worth area. 

This section of the web site is just for fun. We're not selling anything and no one is paying us for recommendations. The listings below are in alphabetical order. 

Thanks

Ashton Depot Catering & Events in Fort Worth

History - The historic Santa Fe Depot (now The Ashton Depot) was originally opened on March 1, 1899 in response to a growing demand for railroad service in Fort Worth. In 1938 the depot was renovated and modernized as part of an extensive program undertaken by the Fort Worth Union Passenger Station and the Santa Fe Railroad. The station served several lines until 1960. Amtrak operated passenger rail service out of the station between 1973 and 1995. Today, the Santa Fe Depot is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and was designated a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark in 1970.

Today, the neoclassical Beaux Arts-Style terminal has been restored to its original beauty and distinctiveness. The original stained glass windows, barrel-vaulted ceilings, and marble floors are stunning, emanating an atmosphere of timeless style and grace.
