Newly engaged and on the hunt for a beautiful wedding venue in Dallas? Look no further! As a Dallas native and a professional in the wedding industry, I know all the best places to say “I do” in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Keep reading to discover the top five most beautiful wedding venues in Dallas.  


Nasher Sculpture Center

As a Dallas wedding photographer, the Nasher Sculpture Center is definitely one of my favorite venues. That is because there are so many gorgeous spots for couple’s portraits at this unique venue. For those that don’t know, the Nasher Sculpture Center is a museum in the heart of Dallas’ famous Arts District. Featuring modern architecture and pristine gardens, this Dallas wedding venue has both indoor and outdoor spaces in which to hold your wedding. For example, al fresco weddings can be planned on the museum’s terrace or right in the gardens, surrounded by magnolias, ponds, and bamboo. Another bonus is that all menus for weddings held here are crafted by Wolfgang Puck Catering (Spicy Tuna Tartare in a Sesame Miso Cone, and Smoked Salmon on a Lemon-Herb Blini are just a few of the options you’ll have to choose from). 


The Ritz Carlton, Dallas

Tie the knot in one of Dallas’ most glamorous wedding venues: The Ritz Carlton, Dallas. This 5-star hotel boasts one of the most breathtaking ballrooms in the entire city. It features plenty of natural light and a muted color palette that can be transformed to suit any wedding theme. Plus, they have a whole team of expert planners on hand to help make your dream day a reality. From planning an afternoon tea bridal shower for you and your friends, or booking a Honey Rum Butterscotch pedicure for you the day before your wedding, you’ll be in good hands at this beautiful Dallas wedding venue. 


The Westin Galleria Dallas

If a lavish indoor wedding is more your style, then The Westin Galleria Dallas might just be for you. This upscale hotel in the heart of the city has a whopping three ballrooms on-site. This means that you can choose which one is more your style. Some are ideal for smaller, more intimate weddings, while others are more suited to grand affairs with hundreds of guests. Another thing I love about The Westin Galleria Dallas is they also have a private dining room called Privé that can be rented out for bridal showers or rehearsal dinners. Finally, the food here is to die for, so if you and your fiancé are self-proclaimed foodies, then you will fall in love with the menus crafted by award-winning chef David C. Smith. 


The Mason Dallas

The Mason is hands down one of my favorite wedding venues in Dallas. As a Dallas wedding photographer, lighting is everything, and The Mason Dallas is flooded with natural light. It’s also one of the prettiest historic wedding venues the city has to offer. The building was constructed in 1902 and almost all of its original architecture has been preserved. Today, it is a fully operational Dallas wedding venue with over 10,000 square feet of event space, including a ballroom with ornate chandeliers. The Mason can accommodate up to 200 people and is bursting with charm. My fave spot to take photos of couples is in front of the grand fireplace, which is flanked by two columns.


Hotel Zaza Uptown Dallas

The Hotel Zaza Uptown Dallas is one of the most unique wedding venues in Dallas. Depending on which room you hold your wedding in, you’ll find the venue to be artsy, glamorous, Mediterranean, or industrial chic. That is because this boutique hotel offers a range of different interior design styles. Couples have the option of tying the knot in the edgy Art House and Social Gallery, in the intimate Dragon’s Den, or in the lavish Uptown Ballroom. Of course, I also recommend taking advantage of Hotel Zaza’s gorgeous outdoor pool. You can even request to have the pool covered in lucite flooring so you can dance the night away on top of it! How cool is that?
