About Us



Owners Suzanne and Ed Stegemoller

We would like to welcome you to Winding Brooks, a privately owned and operated indoor-outdoor event and photography venue located in Ellis County, approximately 40 miles south of Dallas.

Winding Brooks is a labor of love designed and built by Ed. His love of plants, flowers, the land and nature have inspired him to create our beautiful gardens. The park-like setting includes eight water features with winding streams that gently cascade to large water ponds. An abundance of natural rock and boulders, water lilies, lotuses, several hundred varieties of plants and flowers and unusually shaped trees line the gardens for everyone to enjoy. This gorgeous landscape is the backdrop for a 5,000 sq. ft. banquet hall that includes a spacious bridal suite.  A separate building accommodates the groom and his groomsmen, along with four restrooms.  Together the grounds and the rustic building provide the perfect indoor – outdoor setting and accommodations to make your event or photography session even more special.

We are honored that you would consider bringing your family and guests to Winding Brooks, where you will create ever-lasting memories and share in this labor of love!
