Welcome to Elmwood Gardens

Tucked in a quiet corner of East Texas, this charming 19th century homestead now serves as the premier wedding venue in the area. This unique facility was established in 2000 by owners Jim and Dee Dee Turnage. Elmwood Gardens was voted as the Best of the Best Wedding Location two years in a row by the Wedded Bliss magazine for 2010 and 2011. Elmwood Gardens also received the Bride's Choice Award for 2012 by WeddingWire.com based on our client reviews.

From the charming European-style cottage gardens to the replica of ancient stone gardens in Ireland, the venue offers the perfect setting to express your unique personality. The forty-two hundred square foot ballroom is perfect to feature your elegant, vintage-inspired or rustic wedding. Lights, vineyards, fountains, and statues provide the perfect romantic atmosphere. The century-old cottages serve as dressing areas as well as hair studios for you and your bridal party.
