Surrounded by sprawling, mature oak trees, a serene pond and open pasture, The Oaks at Williams Creek is a brand new, stunning rustic-modern barn placed perfectly on 100 acres in the East Texas countryside. Whether you are looking for an indoor or outdoor venue for your wedding, corporate retreat, prom, graduation, or family and class reunions, The Oaks at Williams Creeks offers all of the charm of country life conveniently just outside the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.
Accommodating up to 300 guests, our 3,500-square-foot rustic-modern barn features chandeliers hanging from the dramatic cathedral ceilings, whitewashed shiplap and a grand, metal and wood staircase that adds an understated elegance to any event.
With privacy and nature in mind, the venue is situated on the property so that you cannot see a road, house or any of the other reminders of day-to-day life. If you choose to take your venue outdoors, a grand wood and metal pergola frames our peaceful, picturesque pond, serving as the perfect backdrop for your event or photos.
Our stunning and large bridal suite features a walk-in shower and vintage clawfoot tub to soak in before your big day. Along with two salon-style chairs, quartz countertops, natural lighting, plenty of mirror space and private balcony, our bridal suite serves as the perfect headquarters for all of your Big Day needs. Our cozy groom’s suite also features its own private bathroom, large leather couch and arm chairs, a flat-screen television, and locker-style storage to help the guys kick back in style.
Whether you’re sipping a libation from our relaxing Adirondack chairs, playing a fun game of cornhole or gathering around the silo bar, our outdoor social spaces serve as the perfect reception or cocktail space for any event.
The Oaks at Williams Creek is proud to be the centerpiece for any venue or event you have in mind. See how our guests have utilized our grounds and reception area to create the event of their dreams.

“I had the opportunity to tour this venue for my daughter’s upcoming wedding. We met Kim and Hal and I felt like we had been friends for years! So kind and accommodating! I can’t say enough great things about these two wonderful people! I am almost speechless about the pure natural beauty of the property, but the work and additions they have made to this gorgeous, private, serene setting is incredible! They haven’t left out one detail. The barn is absolutely stunning. Rustic elegance! If you are venue shopping I highly recommend taking this tour. I am betting it will end your search, like it did mine! It’s good on the budget, but I promise your guests will think you broke the bank on this slice of heaven!
