They are not a typical part of any wedding venue, but Terri Mouton, the owner of Canyon Creek Estate, assured me that they are often the highlight for guests that come to the property. In fact, one of the add-ons a couple can include in their rental package is a petting zoo featuring the sheep and goats that live on the property!
As unique as that sounds, it isn't the only thing that that sets this DFW Wedding Venue apart from the rest.
For one, the estate is located at the end of Canyon Creek Dr, a road that is far more developed than the ranch that the Estate resides on. Rather than being off-putting though, the friendly neighborhood feels protective of this hidden-gem, and after speaking with Terri I learned why...
Terri, the owner of Canyon Creek Estate, is one of those women who loves to build up those around her. She cares deeply for God, her family, her neighbors, and others, and as she has found success with Canyon Creek Estate she has in turn shared that success with her neighborhood. It was while she set a charcuterie board down in front of me that she casually mentioned the meat was smoked by her neighbor, a man who has won several awards for his techniques and now serves as the Estate's primary protein provider. (After trying the sample I had to agree it was the best I'd ever had!)
Terri also boasted of the fabulous baker his wife was, and how Terri recommends her to all the couples that come to the Estate. She then went on to describe the neighborhood boys whom she hires to help direct cars, and how other neighbors help with the prep and clean-up for events. It's clear from the conversation that Terri has cultivated a tight-knit community, which helps make the Canyon Creek Estate such a success.
And Terri has big plans for this Fort Worth Wedding Venue! As she drove me about the property she showed me where they plan on building a bridge that will cross over the creek that winds through the property. On their wedding day, brides will be able to use it to make their grand entrance at the outdoor ceremony (which would be held right in front of the small lake at the back of the property). In addition they plan to add on a large covered patio onto the back of the house to provide additional shade to the reception tables placed there.
Terri also loves problem solving and helping to make each wedding held at Canyon Creek Estate unique and special. She has a Wedding DIY channel in the works on which she plans to showcase Wedding DIYs so you can learn how to create all the Pinterest Worthy decorations you see on Instagram.
So if you are looking for a stunning, colonial-styled building, and a Wedding Venue Owner who will assist you in making your wedding dreams a reality, whether that is an outdoor ceremony, or a gorgeous white floral coffee filter backdrop (like, I said DIY Queen!), look no further than the Canyon Creek Estate located in Azle, TX!
