If you are looking for stunning, laid-back farm to host your Dallas wedding then look no further than the Mars Hill Farm just south of Dallas in Ferris, TX!
This 100 acre farm is just 30 minutes south of Dallas and sports a gorgeous little outdoor pavilion, barn, and view of their flower crop and ranch.
The grounds of the farm also sports a rentable Airbnb dubbed the 'tiny house' that can be used as the bridal suite or overnight accommodations for the newlywed couple.
If you choose their Full Farm Package they also provide:
-Trailer rides during the event -Firepit and farm games (cornhole, roping, etc.) -Animals moved for backdrop/ambiance (Longhorns, chickens, etc.) -Petting zoo (if desired) and, my personal favorite, during flower season you can have a flower bar or flower cutting for your guests so they can take home their own floral arrangements in mason jars at the end of the night! At $15/guest or family that's not bad!
The Couple I photographed at Mars Hill Farm held their Wedding Ceremony at the Dallas LDS Temple prior to coming to Mars Hill Farm for their Ring Ceremony and Reception. Below you will see some of the details of how they decorated the tables and pavillion for their reception.
It was such a beautiful outdoor reception! With the colors of the sunset painting the sky, a lovely breeze blowing across the farm, and a symphony of crickets serenading us it was a night that Texas dreams are made of.
Everyone had so much fun chatting and enjoying the outdoor games, you could tell that these families really cared for each other and the lovely couple they had come to celebrate. I had a great time photographing everyone in attendance, but I have to say my favorite moment I caught on camera was the faces of the bride and groom's parents and siblings as the couple posed with their nephews and neices:
