If you’ve been keeping up with Denton news lately, you may have stumbled across a familiar name: our Aubrey-based wedding venue, Hidden Springs.

If you’re curious as to why a Denton County wedding venue (or even the wedding industry in general) is making headlines at all, you’re not alone. If you’re anything like those original doubters, however, you’ll also be stunned to learn just what this region has to offer brides and grooms from all over.

Not too long ago, Denton Convention & Visitors Bureau, Dana Lodge came up with the idea to really put the area’s best foot forward and to show people what Denton really has to offer the Texas wedding market. She concocted the idea to contact high end wedding planners and those down in the Dallas region to just get them out of that city bubble and see firsthand that we’re not all just “country bumkins” down here, as Hidden Springs General Manager, Kathy McNaughton put it. Denton has what brides are looking for these days, and it was about time for us to prove it.

The most exciting part of all of this was that Hidden Springs was asked to host a luncheon after they visited venue after venue throughout the area.

Vizcarra Hospitality provided a delicious meal for everyone to enjoy and afterwards, the Hidden Springs staff took half of the group out on a tour of the venue while the other half mingled with the other vendors who had set up tables in our hallway.

So this begs the question: why us?

Why was Hidden Springs chosen to host the luncheon above all others? Truthfully, we can’t say for sure, but if we had to venture a guess, we’d say it’s because Hidden Springs (and all of our other venues) have an open vendor venue policy; not all of the other venues out there do that. Regardless of the reasoning, we were all too happy to welcome everyone!

By the time the event came to an end and everyone started to hop back on the bus, Kathy recalls a number of wedding planners coming up to her and saying, “Kathy, we never knew any of this was out here.”

What exactly were they referring to? What is it about Denton that has everyone buzzing?

Stay tuned for us to give you the inside scoop on what makes this area so unique, how to entertain out of town guests while you’re here and where to find the best local photo opt spots!
