Take a look through our database of preferred Northeast Texas wedding venues.

Fresh Ingredients

Fresh, local ingredients are always best when it comes to planning your menu. You can treat your guests to  delectable dishes with local flavor by calling on catering companies and restaurants. Let them know that you want your food and drinks to reflect what’s in season and what’s authentic about the Northeast area.

For a fine dining experience, head to Jack Ryan’s Steak and Chophouse where you’ll be delighted by surf and turf specials, sumptuous salads, and desserts to satisfy any sweet tooth.

You can also have the food come to you by hiring a caterer like the Adalante Catering Company or Traditions Restaurant and Catering.


There’s nothing like bringing the beauty of nature into your celebration, and what better way to do that than through flowers and greenery? Especially when they come from local florists who know the best types of flowers, what’s in season, and how to create gorgeous arrangements. You could even work with your florist to incorporate the state flower and/or other natural elements that are unique to the area.

Two of our favorite Northeast Texas florists are La Bella Blooms and Ann’s Petals. They are both fueled by flowers and will work with you to adorn your venue and yourself with arrangements that are out of this world beautiful.
