The Four States Area’s Best Wedding Venues
Selecting a wedding venue is not always an easy choice. Here in the Four States Area we have quite a few outstanding venues to choose from and they all have their own unique qualities. As a wedding dj, I’ve worked in them all and here are my favorites, as well as information about two new venues that I'm excited about. Note: These are MY favorites based on my experiences with all the different venue's around the area (and the people that run them).
Texarkana Convention Center and adjoining Hilton Garden Inn
Texarkana's newest wedding venue is now booking! How do I know this is going to be a great wedding venue? Because my friend Jennifer Montoya (formerly of Northridge Country Club) is in charge of events there and you'd be hard pressed to find someone more attentive to details than she is. This new facility will boast a 12,000 square foot ballroom, capably of seating up to a thousand guests, as well as other smaller event areas. No matter how big or small the event, they'll be able to handle it. Call Jennifer at (903) 792-1070 for more information.
So far, I’ve only worked in here once but I was really impressed. Not only with the owner and his passion for his new venue, but by how nice they’ve made this place. They took four falling down, crummy store fronts on Broad Street and turned them into a show place. The Silvermoon can host weddings receptions with up to 250 guests and has its own commercial kitchen behind the great hall, a courtyard, large restrooms and even a theater. There are a number of rental options based on your needs.
I’ve hosted many weddings inside the Horace C. Cabe Great Hall at the Arts Center and I absolutely love this venue. It’s classy, yet affordable, and the staff here is very friendly and accommodating. The Great Hall, which was once a U.S. District Courtroom, is ideal for smaller weddings and/or receptions (up to 180 guests). For rental information, contact Jessica Walker at 903-280-1834.
I'm just a tiny bit biased when it comes to Ramage because it's where I was married and my wife and I absolutely love this place. It's out in the middle of nowhere, it's a barn.. but it's one of the neatest places for weddings around. (Not to mention the Ramage Family are just really nice people and a joy to work with). There are a million different ways you can decorate the place. It's old and rustic, but I've seen some really creative decorators make that place look just as classy as can be. Brides: A word of advice though. WALK SLOWLY down the staircase.
Northridge County Club
I always enjoy working at Northridge. The staff is friendly, the facilities are nice and their food is excellent! Whether you need space for 100 guests or over 300, they have the perfect sized room. These folks go out of their way to take care of their clients and you just can't go wrong choosing Northridge for your wedding.
