For Dallas brides and grooms looking for an outdoor ceremony location with an indoor reception, the choices are somewhat limited… especially if you’re looking to get married in the heart of the city. However, Marie Gabrielle Restaurant and Gardens in the uptown area certainly fits the bill. The restaurant that serves breakfast and lunch during the week to professionals in the neighboring office buildings turns into a special event venue in the evenings and on weekends, catering to weddings, rehearsal dinners and other special occasions. The restaurant sits next to a 1.5 acre European garden with a reflecting pool which makes for a stunning ceremony backdrop.
The indoor reception space features floor to ceiling windows and comes equipped with neutral tablecloths, iron plate chargers and nearly 200 candles to illuminate the space. And unlike many venues in uptown and downtown Dallas, Marie Gabrielle offers complimentary parking for guests.
The beauty of the gardens truly makes the venue, and any couple looking to tie the knot in a unique outdoor space should definitely check it out. Lucky for me, I’m working with a couple who will tie the knot at Marie Gabrielle in March 2012! Can’t wait!
