it’s all in the details
The Establishment Barn is a family-owned wedding venue in Terrell, Texas. We built this barn from the ground up. We spent much time, effort, and care to make sure that it was the perfect place for a bride’s wedding day dreams to come true. When you have your wedding at our venue, you can either choose to use your own vendors or use ours, bring alcohol and bartenders, and even have a one-hour photography shoot that is included in our packages. We have additional options that can be added onto packages with an additional fee, such as, day-of coordinator or flipping the room. If you have more questions, feel free to ask us!
