When unique matters…

Melissa and staff are amazing!! They are excellent at managing both the planned details and the little hiccups that are a part of every wedding so that your day is as stress-free as you choose for it to be. You arrive to find everything g set up in honor of the bride and groom. because they work so hard, you can focus on loving the bride, groom, and guests! You do t have to manage anything, just revel in the moment! The grounds are beautiful …like your grandmother s backyard…only none of your family had to labor to get that yard ready for the big day!! The food was delicious, decor was perfectly laid out, and every detail was smoothly managed by Walnut Tree staff. (Note: many special features that would cost extra at another venue are just a part of this venue! What a blessing!) It truly was the wedding of our kid’s dreams, and throughout the process, we felt like family to Melissa. I cannot imagine a more perfect venue, and I am so very thankful to have had the privilege of working with Walnut Tree Weddings!!

Dear Melissa,
I just want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the outstanding job you did on our son, Cody, & Jill’s wedding this past weekend! You made our kids’ wedding dreams a reality. Your venue there at Walnut Tree was like a little piece of Heaven nestled on Earth!

I have to tell you; you and your family and staff surpassed all expectations we ever could have imagined! From the moment we met you Friday evening at the rehearsal to the final moments after the wedding was over, you were top notch. Your attention to every small detail was greatly appreciated.

It is so obvious how much you are dedicated to what you do and it was reflected all through the weekend’s events. A wedding can be very stressful for the bride, groom and their families. You took that stress away completely.

The photographs of the wedding were phenomenal. Thank you so much for sharing those on Facebook. So many of our Missouri and Illinois family were unable to make it to the wedding, so you posting those helped me to share the amazing event with them! All I keep hearing is how spectacular the venue looked. I only wished they could have seen it in person to take it all in!

I pray your business continues to be successful. You deserve it. You are excellent at what you do!

God Bless,

Jessica Campbell

I just want to take some time to talk about my experience with all the wonderful people who ARE WalnutTree Weddings!! Melissa & Chuck, and Jacquie & Robin made my dream wedding happen!! Melissa was always available if I had an idea I wanted to share, or a question. She allowed me to personalize it in just the way I wanted. Early on, she told me that she had the ability to get inside each brides head and figure out exactly what they wanted! That couldn’t be more true. On the day of my wedding, I didn’t feel stressed at all! I was confident that she would take care of every last detail, which she and all the Walnut Tree staff did. It was like she waved a magic wand, and everything was done!! I truly feel like Melissa is a part of my family now, I just wanted to say “I love you” by the end of the evening. The beauty of the place is remarkable!! You certainly don’t feel like you’re in West Texas!! The reception hall was beautiful and very cool on a warm July evening. The food was so delicious, and the fruit was beautifully arranged!! We also enjoyed the Soda Shoppe, where we could order floats or sundaes!

I am so happy that I chose WalnutTree Weddings!

Dear lovely brides,

I know that you are approaching one of the most memorable days of your life! This time can be rather stressful, seeing that there are one million little details that go in to making your “special day” special! If you are looking for someone that can take care of the details for you, Walnut Tree Weddings is your place! My experience with these amazing people fell nothing short of PERFECT! Everything was exactly what I dreamed it would be. Actually, it was even better than I ever dreamed! I know that if I had to plan everything on my own, my day would not have been as calm, peaceful, and memorable as it was. It is easy to stress yourself completely out while planning your wedding, which can take the fun out of having a wedding! Nobody needs a bridezilla on their hands. That could make your sweet groom question where his precious little fiancé went! Walnut Tree weddings will take care of every single detail! I never had to lift a finger! Talk about peaceful wedding planning! The venue is the most unique place to have a wedding, you sure don’t feel like you are a mile outside of Olton, Texas. Your wedding can be a simple and quaint or as extravagant as your heart desires! I have never seen such beautiful flower arrangements as the arrangements that were displayed at my wedding! The wonderful people that operate Walnut Tree Weddings are not afraid to work hard to make sure that all you have to do is show up on your big day! I know that dealing with people who are planning your wedding can add another stress to your life, but not with the staff at Walnut Tree Weddings! They greet you with a smile and a happy heart and are filled with pure joy to meet every single one of your needs. Sound too good to be true? It is, but they make it a reality for every single bride and all who are involved in the big day! Your wish is their command! So, if you are looking for a place that is greater than a fairytale wedding, book your wedding with Walnut Tree Weddings! You will not walk away with a single ounce of disappointment!

Happy Planning,

Bonnie Kate Olson

Dear ladies,

I do not have the words to express how grateful I am to you for making my daughter’s wedding dreams come true! From the very beginning, you rescued us from a difficult situation with grace and kindness. When we left after our first meeting, we knew exactly what to expect from Walnut Tree. And did you ever deliver!! My girl had so many specific things that she wanted to have happen and you did every single one plus a few extras that made things even more special! I had the privilege of telling you what we wanted and then relaxing while you did the work. Instead of spending her wedding day working my tail off, I spent it with my daughter making memories.

The food. The food!!! It was so good. We had several people tell us that it was the best wedding food they had ever had. You used some of our family recipes to make it special for us and then you added some of your own. The day I returned home someone asked me for the beef tenderloin recipe – they were hoping that was my recipe. (Do you share?!)

Besides you two and your crew, the venue itself is perhaps the best thing about our wedding weekend. We enjoyed being able to say we were having a destination wedding…….in Olton, Texas. Then as people laughed, we showed them pictures! As people arrived at the wedding, they were astounded at how lovely the setting was and how delightful the buildings and facilities were. I know you weren’t in control of the weather, but to have an indoor option for an outdoor wedding scheduled in November was a relief.

Thank you so much for making our wedding absolutely perfect. It couldn’t have been better!

Thank you so much for making our day so perfect. You say it was so simple yet to us it was a fairy tale wedding that you helped come true. We can never thank you enough for the special touches you made here and there. Thank you thank you thank you…

Brandon Rowell

I will have to say people will have to try hard to beat the wedding that walnut tree wedding in Oltion Texas put on. For our daughter, I do believe it was the most amazing thing I have ever been a part of, and I’m mot saying this just because it was my daughter’s. I was truly amazed and I’m not easily amazed. But between the work that was put into it by all involved and the night God gave us, there is no way it could have been more perfect. I wold like to personally thank everyone involved and would highly recommend this place. Thanks and God Bless
