“Mrs. Suzanne and Mr. Ed at Winding Brooks are absolutely amazing. From the moment we reached out to her inquiring about the venue, I knew this place was something special. After meeting her and seeing their beautiful venue, she made it easy to say yes. Mr. Ed takes lots of pride in his venue and his landscaping. It is so well kept and absolutely beautiful for an outdoor or indoor wedding. Mrs. Suzanne has great communication and truly wants your day to be how you want it and helps how she can to make it go smoothly. We are so beyond blessed to have found this beautiful place. Our guests had so many positive things to say about it and our night to remember wouldn’t have been possible without them.” (December 9, 2023)

Donald Kile

“I was the coordinator and officiant for Jose and Ashley at Winding Brooks over the weekend and just HAD to share how much I enjoyed both working with and at this venue. The owner, Suzanne, was friendly, quick to follow-up and answer some questions in prep for the Big Day, and went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect for the couple, their guests, and the other vendors. If you’re looking for the perfect venue in Ennis, you’ve just found yourself a great one :)”  (10/25/2021)

Amber Lee, Once Upon a Wedding

“Suzanne and Ed were a breeze to work with. They listened to my ideas and we were able to make them work! They made several upgrades since my brother got married there, and they are beautiful upgrades (beam color is gray, grooms suite addition, back patio. etc)! The back patio overlooking the land was a hot-spot during cocktail hour! I received nothing but compliments from our guests of the entire venue on how beautiful it was and “how did you find this place?!”. The landscaping and greenery are absolutely breathtaking, especially the weekend we got married (Nov 7th). We had those beautiful fall colors on some trees already! FYI, there is not good service out there (I had several Snapchat filters for the venue location – they did not work in the bridal suite but yes to the reception hall thank goodness). Ed was amazing to work with, especially the day-of. He was able to hang a few signs for me willingly that my dad and brother had made. The also let my husband and I come in a day before to set up our Edison bulb lights to make sure they would work for the wedding day. Suzanne and Ed are amazing owners that take pride in what they have built together for a venue. It’s absolutely beautiful. Thank you guys for making mine and Coleton’s day so special and memorable! ” (11/17/2020)

Heather Teplicek

“My husband and I got married here June 7, 2020. When we first came to view this place in 2019, we were blown away at the lush green oasis, with a gorgeous pond and breathtaking views. We also loved that they had a large reception hall (that they lovingly built by hand) and that it was large enough for us to have the reception and ceremony if we had to move things inside. You know, Texas weather is so unpredictable. Suzanne was very sweet and professional from the day we signed our contract to the last moment of our wedding day. She was so patient with our many questions and consistent with her communication to make sure every detail of our special day was taken care of. Even the day of the wedding, she and her husband worked tirelessly to make sure everyone knew where to go and even went to the extent of driving our guests from the parking to the ceremony site in their own golf carts. My husband and I feel extremely blessed to have had the opportunity to meet Suzanne and have our special day be celebrated here. If I had to do it all over again, I would choose this venue in a heart beat.” (June 7, 2020)

Catherine Coates

“One of the loveliest venues I have ever seen….clearly a very special place….and the evening was perfect!  Couldn’t have been better! Very memorable!!  We really couldn’t have asked for a better once in a lifetime experience for our son and daughter-in-law.”  (July 25, 2020)

Pam House   

“My wife and I got married at this venue on 4/27/19 and it was perfect. Suzanne and Ed were very welcoming and accommodating to us as well as all the guests. They made sure that everyone was taken care of and worked with us every step of the way up until the big day. Their venue is gorgeous inside and out. The bridal and grooms suites were amazing. The reception hall was very roomy (even for a guest count of nearly 200) and all of the guests told me how nice the place was. The outdoor area was everything the bride ever wanted and it made for a perfect day. This place gets 5/5 stars and I definitely recommend it to anyone looking to book a venue. The best part was that it was priced very fairly compared to many other venues that were charging ridiculously high rates.”  (May 10, 2019)

Tim J Meyer 

 “My wife and I just had our ceremony and reception at Winding Brooks and I have to say that it turned out so beautiful! Suzanne and Ed are awesome people and really made us feel at home. We looked at several other venues and none compared to beauty and layout of Winding Brooks, from the awesome rustic style of the hall and grooms room to the beautiful arbor and stone walkway (which is what we chose for our ceremony) to the huge open porches and beautiful waterfront view. It honestly doesn’t get much better then this. To anybody looking for a wedding venue, if you do not come see this place, you are missing out.”  (October 6, 2018)

David Ryan Courtney 

“Suzanne & Ed are second to none! They were so accommodating, knowledgeable and helpful from the first email until we drove off the property as bride and groom. From the moment you turn off the freeway the views are gorgeous. The property is a garden oasis. The venue is nothing short of breathtaking. Inside, the bride and groom each have separate dressing quarters, big enough for the whole entourage. The bridal suite is stunning. They coordinated vendors the day of and ensured our day went off without a hitch. They helped make our day perfect from beginning to end and we are forever grateful! We love Winding Brooks and you surely will too.” (May 15, 2018)

Sarah Renee Elledge

“It was the best experience ever! The owners are phenomenal!!! They’re helpful, on site the whole wedding, very responsive and available to chat or answer any questions before the event. The venue itself is breathtaking and perfect. The gardens and ponds add an unbelievable touch. I loved the bridal and grooms suites that they have. There are 8 bathrooms on site, two outdoor ceremony areas and the gorgeous indoor venue. I have a million wonderful things to say but, my best advice, BOOK HERE!!!”  (May 11, 2018)

Jacqueline Crane

“We absolutely loved this venue. The gardens are so beautiful, the two outside ceremony sites are breathtaking and the reception hall inside is stunning. We were surprised we could use the whole venue for one fantastic price, the best price we found to accommodate 225 guests. The owners were so helpful getting all our vendors and guests down to the venue in the rain on Saturday with the golf carts to keep them dry. The wedding was amazing and I would recommend this venue to anyone looking for a beautiful site.” (June 3, 2017)

Martha Brown

“Beautiful venue with gardens and a big pond. The facilities were rustic but very nice and the people running it were really nice.

We absolutely love this venue and the people who run it!  We had our wedding at this venue in October, after my husband’s cousin had her wedding the year prior at this venue. We were able to transform the venue into our fantasy wedding venue, which was amazing. We are so thankful for Ed and Suzanne, for making our big day effortless and convenient, not only for us, but for our guests as well. I’ll definitely recommend to any newly engaged couple for a venue. Thanks guys. (February 13, 2017)

“We’re so glad we chose this venue!!! Although, details didn’t go quite as planned on our end (like forgetting my bouquet in the hotel room- delaying our start time), the owners, the facility, etc. was still perfect and worked out for the best! It was freakishly too cold to get married at the alter outside as planned, but getting married inside turned out beautiful at the last minute after all. I wouldn’t change it. I loved that we had the option of plan b! The price is perfect, ability to have your day the way you want, use your own vendors is great!!! We recommend this facility to anyone for any event!!!! I plan to use them again in the future for a family event!!” (June 6, 2014)
