DOVE RIDGE VINEYARD | FORT WORTH WEDDING VENUE

Kent Evans Photography     Last week I had the pleasure of meeting with Janan, one of the owners of Dove Ridge Vineyard, and I loved getting to tour the venue and hear all about its backstory and the unique aspects of this Fort Worth wedding venue.     Dove Ridge Vineyard is a brand new wedding venue located on 56 acres that opened this year in Weatherford TX. It is located just 30 minutes from downtown Fort Worth and is surrounded by 360 views of Parker and Tarrant Counties.  Not only is it located on a working vineyard (I mean come on the coolest thing EVER!), you can also see the rolling hills of Weatherford at every view.  It is the perfect fit for the couple that is looking for a wedding with a destination feel but doesn’t want to stray too far from the DFW area.

DOVE RIDGE VINEYARD - RECEPTION SPACE

   When you walk through Dove Ridge Vineyard's front doors you enter the foyer with beautiful tall ceilings, which leads you to the main event hall.  It's cathedral ceilings, light gray walls, large iron chandeliers, and dark beams it is seriously jaw dropping.  The front and back of the building are almost all floor to ceiling windows that bring in the natural light, and your guests can enjoy it’s 360 views. Dove Ridge Vineyards large interior allows for much variety in the floor plan and can hold up to 425 guests with a dance floor, but it is also perfect for smaller weddings of 150.  It has a large stone fireplace at one end of the room, and on the other, there is a large bar that is the perfect distance from your dance floor (Cause let’s be honest drunk be dance!).

DOVE RIDGE VINEYARD - GROOM AND BRIDAL SUITE

  Dove Ridge Vineyard has not only a bride's suite but also groom’s suite so the bride and groom can get ready at the venue.  The bride and groom’s suite both have a separate entrance, so the bride and groom don’t have to worry about seeing each other the day of the wedding.

DOVE RIDGE VINEYARD - CEREMONY SPACE

   As you walk outside Dove Ridge Vineyard, there are two locations for the ceremony.  One is under a large pavilion with a stone fireplace that has hanging café lights.  It is not only a great plan A option, but it also is a perfect plan B option if it starts to rain on the wedding day the couple can still have the wedding outside and still be surrounded by the gorgeous scenery.  Another ceremony option is an outdoor hilltop location where if you look closely you can see Fort Worth!

THE INTERVIEW

Shannon Rose Events: How did you get started?
Dove Ridge Vineyard: “ We always loved going to vineyards through Texas and thought it would be great to open our own.”  Janan, who worked in floral design for years in the industry also said, “building the wedding venue also felt like her way of paying it forward to all the wedding vendors she worked with in the past.”

Shannon Rose Events: What was your favorite client this year?
Dove Ridge Vineyard: “Since we started booking weddings last year, when the building was still under heavy construction, we built a great relationship with those clients.  They were trusting of the venue, booking in some cases with just drawings of what it was going to look like, and they would come back throughout the year to see the Dove Ridge Vineyard's progress. Those weddings I think have been our favorite so far.”

Shannon Rose Events: What is one interesting fact about the venue?
Dove Ridge Vineyard: “It is a three and half-year-old vineyard that has gone from a library of 500 plants to now 5,000.”

Shannon Rose Events: What do you have planned for the future?
Dove Ridge Vineyard: “In 2018 we will have a wine processing room and tasting room, and in a few years we would love to build cabins so people can stay on the property.  We love the idea of couples getting to celebrate their anniversary at the vineyard!”
