Outdoor Venues and Gardens in the Dallas Area

Avanti at Fountain Place

Why buy flowers for your ceremony or reception when you can get married among the flowers of the Arboretum! There are eight gardens to choose from, and three reception venues. Ceremony rentals include chairs, security, and a hospitality coordinator and rehearsal time.

Sneaky Pete's on Lake Lewisville
