WEDDINGS AND EVENTS
The Barn at the Silver Spur Resort
Located on 35 acres in the heart of East Texas, the Barn at the Silver Spur Resort is an ideal venue for your country wedding. With ample space for ceremonies, cocktail hours, receptions, rehearsal dinners, and more, the Barn is able to host weddings and events of any size, from intimate gatherings to larger ones of up to 300 guests.
Looking to plan a wedding weekend so your guests can stay a while? The Silver Spur Resort offers lodging, dining, and an array of activities to keep your guests happy, entertained, and well-fed from the moment they arrive to the moment you say your farewells.
Here Comes the Bride
Our event staff will welcome your guests to comfortable seating in the shade of mature Elm and Pecan trees, with a direct view of our serene lake and fountain. They’ll hear the soft sound of a running stream and spot cows grazing in the neighbor’s pastures in the distance. As the strains of the Wedding March begin, they’ll see you walking down a shaded path towards your beloved. Alternately, you can opt for a spectacular horse and carriage ride around the lake, with a drop off directly behind the wedding arbor. With a number of different ceremony locations available at the Silver Spur Resort, our team can help you plan the “I Dos” you’ve always dreamed about.
Introducing the New Mr. and Mrs.
Your guests will be ushered to our newly built rustic Barn for dinner and dancing. The Barn doors will swing open as you’re announced as the newly married Mr. and Mrs. and begin your first dance. Keep the barn doors open and let the party flow out into the surrounding grounds, or keep the event within the walls of the climate-controlled building in warmer weather.
The Silver Spur Resort has an extensive array of decorations in our inventory that you’ll have complimentary access to use at your event.
Want to leave the decorating up to us? Our event staff is available to decorate the space to your exact vision for an additional fee.
Every single guest who came to our special day commented on what a perfect location it is for a wedding, and how much it reflected us as a couple. The one thing we really liked was the peace and quiet, tranquility, and sense of being with Nature. The gardens speak for themselves as a stunning
back drop, and unlike so many other wedding venues, you don’t feel like you’re on a conveyor belt with the next wedding lined up after you. We really had a sense of exclusivity, and as if the place was our own. (we wish!!) Many of our friends said it was the best wedding they had ever been to, and of course we had to agree as everything was so perfect.

“The Silver Spur Resort made my wedding fairytale come true! The staff is so amazing and wonderful, I don’t think I could have ever asked for a better team. The ceremony area by the pond was beautiful along with the barn. I’m also really thankful for their vendor recommendations it made finding everything a piece of cake!”
