Venue Features
The Scene:
Winding two-lane farm roads in Ponder, TX lead you to our property which sits on 36 serene acres of untouched farmland in Ponder, TX. As you pull in our large parking lot, you will feel a sense of calm and peace from the city that you can only obtain being completely surrounded by open fields. Our venue sits on top of a small hill which offers picturesque views of the Ponder Valley. 
The Nest is an 8,000 sq ft whitewashed romantic venue and chapel that serves as the perfect backdrop for any event or photoshoot. Upon entry, we have authentic gray barn doors that are used for photos. Stepping into the entry you will be greeted by large antique mercury glass French doors which are a favorite for photographers. Once you step into the main hall, you will notice our ornate gold chandeliers hanging from our 40' ceiling. Throughout the venue, we have beautiful marble countertops with touches of acrylic and nods to French romanticism. Our bridal suite is roomy enough to hold parties of 10-20.

Right next door, our brand new chapel that was newly completed in September 2022 serves as a stunning indoor ceremony space. Our couples enjoy peace of mind knowing that they'll have a beautiful climate-controlled ceremony option come rain or shine. The best part?
