More Than a Venue, It’s an Experience

Posted: January 22, 2021 by Silver Spur Master

You may often hear us refer to The Barn as “more than a venue, it’s an experience”. But what does that even mean?

We pride ourselves on offering a complete experience when it comes to service and amenities for your big day. Our team doesn’t just hand over the barn keys and wish you well. We want to be there for you from the moment you tour our venue until the last song of the night is played. Wedding planning can feel overwhelming, and naturally, you’ll have a lot of questions along the way. It is our goal to create an experience as seamless as possible to help make your wedding dreams come true. Our team has created a venue your guests will love, and service to spoil you. Here are some examples of why we are more than just a venue!

The Big and Bright

Our Venue is a Blank Canvas Waiting for its Masterpiece

We provide the canvas, brushes, and paints and help you create the wedding masterpiece you have always dreamed of!

Start with the Barn, our blank canvas, just waiting for your unique wedding vision to come to life. Some couples prefer our beautiful rustic barn just the way it is. Simple, with picture-perfect details like large red barn doors, wood and tin paneling, and bistro lights. Others have a specific vision of the barn wedding style they have been planning. The fun part is keeping it simple or decorating to your taste- the options are endless!

Next comes the fun part! The brushes and paints are tools that when combined, bring your painting to life!

Whether you choose a venue only or platinum package, you’ll have access to our extensive collection of wedding decor. Couples love the option to use our wedding decor because it saves them time and money. There’s no need to worry about making wood rounds, or purchasing lanterns. We may have exactly what you are looking for in our inventory! Choose to use a few items, all of our decor, or mix and match with your own decorations. You may find a few key pieces that fit perfectly with your theme and colors, and there’s no extra charge. Paired with your wedding vision and creativity, and your wedding day masterpiece will come to life!

On-Site Lodging

Part of the experience of hosting your wedding at The Barn is the lodging and amenities we provide onsite. Start with Durham’s Roost Ranch House, a 2800 sq ft house situated at the top of the Resort steps away from the Barn. Although we offer a bridal room inside the Barn and a cabin for the groomsmen to get ready, some couples like to use the Ranch House for their bridal party or family members to get ready for the big day. With all the comfort of home, this house sleeps 12 comfortably.

Put your mind to ease knowing that your guests will find comfortable lodging when they stay in one of our cozy cabins. This lodging option is a perfect choice for a couple or small family to stay overnight or the whole weekend of your wedding. Cabins offer a small kitchenette, comfortable beds, and space to relax and enjoy all the amenities the venue has to offer.

Restaurant and Brewery

Couples appreciate having the Q & Brew onsite, the venue’s own restaurant and brewery! Guests won’t have to travel far to experience delicious smokehouse-style BBQ, and our craft beers are brewed right here at Silver Spur Resort. Lunch and dinner are available for dine-in or takeout, and food can even be delivered right to your cabin door! Menus are provided upon arrival so guests can start planning which menu item they want to try first! The Q & Brew also offers catering services for your wedding.

Things to Do

Brides and grooms want their wedding to be memorable. Along with a variety of factors like price and location, guest experience ranks at the top of the list. Even more so when planning a wedding weekend! If your guests plan to visit for an extended period of time, you will want them to have fun things to do while staying at the venue. Silver Spur Resort offers a variety of activities like an Escape Room, yard games, pool (opened seasonally), playground for kids, human foosball, and catch and release fishing ponds. Your guests can be entertained or find relaxation as they choose.

Knowing that guests are happy and well-fed during their stay are some of the reasons many brides and grooms choose The Barn at the Silver Spur Resort as their wedding venue. Read more tips on how to plan the perfect wedding weekend in East Texas.

Personalized Packages

We are not a one-size-fits-all type of venue. Yes, we offer both a venue-only and a more expansive platinum package, but our team prides itself on customizing a package that fits your wedding vision and budget.

The first interaction we usually have with couples is when you request pricing and packages, or a venue tour. Don’t be afraid to ask questions! We’d love to hear more about your wedding vision and what you are looking for on your wedding day. Our team can accommodate many requests such as rehearsal dinners, bachelor/ette weekends, bridal lunches, lodging, vendor recommendations, weekday weddings, day-of coordinator, and more!

Your wedding should be as unique and special as you are, and we can’t wait to learn more about it! Please talk to us about any special requests or ideas you may have. Our packages are just a starting point to build the wedding of your dreams.
