Dove Hollow Estate is an amazing, family-owned wedding venue in Longview, Texas

For any Austin couple wanting to escape the city for their wedding day, Nikk Nguyen Photo highly recommends having a Dove Hollow Estate wedding. This venue is located a few hours away from Austin in Longview, Texas, and it is completely worth the drive! 

This gorgeous wedding venue consists of a chapel, barn, covered porch area, and perfectly manicured grounds nestled in the woods,  and it can fit up to 200 guests. The style of this venue combines both the shabby-chic farmhouse look with a fresh, modern aesthetic to create something really unique and special. Nikk Nguyen Photo absolutely loves photographing weddings at this venue!

Another aspect of Dove Hollow Estate that makes it really special is that it is owned and operated by two sisters, who designed, built, painted, and landscaped everything on the grounds themselves. The sisters actually chose to invest in Dove Hollow Estate because it is on the property right next to their parents’ homestead, where the girls grew up. To this day, their parents still live next door and help their daughters run Dove Hollow. 

It is fitting to say that Dove Hollow Estate is both a major labor of love and a true family affair! 

Have your modern, romantic wedding ceremony in the moody, trendy chapel at Dove Hollow

Dove Hollow’s chapel is a stunning wooden and brick building painted completely black on the outside. It gives all of the trendy, moody vibes! However, the chapel does have huge glass windows and glass doors with golden accent pieces that provide a peek into the chapel’s interior. 

Inside the chapel, all of the walls are made with a light-colored wood, except for a dramatic black accent wall. One of our favorite details of this space is the flooring, which is made of patterned tiles that look incredibly cool and sophisticated. We love how the windows and doors make for the perfect soft, glow-y lighting to balance the dark tones of the building. With its golden lighting, romantic setting, and modern and classy feel, the chapel at Dove Hollow Estate is everything you could want for a wedding ceremony.

However, if you’re not sure an indoor wedding ceremony is for you, you can always get married outside at Dove Hollow Estate, under the property’s iconic and majestic oak tree.

Celebrate saying “I do” with the venue’s light and airy reception barn

Once you’ve said “I do!” it’s time to celebrate with all your favorite friends and family. Dove Hollow Estate has an awesome reception space for this: a covered porch and two story industrial barn. 

If you’re going to have a cocktail hour before your reception, we recommend having it on the cute covered porch area outside of the barn. It has a great atmosphere for mingling and snacking before the real party begins! 

The reception barn has an all-white exterior and a light-colored, natural wood interior, so the space is super light and airy. Its clean, minimalist aesthetic is wonderful because it complements any wedding decor style, from rustic to bohemian to classic. Plus, its mismatched geometric-shaped windows let in lots of gorgeous natural light, so you can get beautiful photos of the celebration. You will have the best time eating, toasting, and dancing the night away in the barn at Dove Hollow Estate!

Dove Hollow Estate has all the amenities needed for a stress-free wedding day

Another benefit of having your Texas wedding at Dove Hollow Estate is all of the helpful amenities they provide. For example, both the barn and chapel are climate-controlled, so you can comfortably use these facilities at any time of year.

On the day of your wedding, Dove Hollow Estate has everything you need so you can be stress-free and really enjoy your big day. The Bridal Suite (with its own private restroom) and Groom’s Lounge are the perfect places to get ready before the ceremony. While you’re preparing for your day, the team at Dove Hill can set up all of the tables and chairs for the reception, which they prove and include in their wedding packages. 

Plus, Dove Hollow Estate has a kitchen on property that your catering venue can use to store items, plate food, and keep it warm on your wedding day. 

One more benefit of this venue is that they allow you to choose pretty much any vendor you want, so you have a lot of freedom to really make your wedding day your own. The only exception to their vendor rules is that Dove Hollow does specify which bartending services they will work with. You can choose from their list of bartending vendors if you’d like to serve alcohol at your wedding.
