About Us

Sweet Briar Farm is a rural wedding venue situated in Linden, Texas. Dating back to the 1890s, this property once functioned as a cattle farm. Current owners Toni and Lewis Melton built their family home here in the early 2000s, building a barn for Toni’s mother to live in. This barn set the scene for their son’s wedding in 2017, and the facility has been hosting marital celebrations ever since. Nestled amid East Texas’ picturesque Piney Woods, this rustic hideaway can provide the backdrop for your entire once-in-a-lifetime event.

Facilities and Capacity

At Sweet Briar Farm, your nearest and dearest will surely be delighted by its combination of homespun charm and scenic beauty. You and your partner can tie the knot at the outdoor ceremony site. Surrounded by idyllic woodland, this open-air setting is the perfect place to say “I do”. Following your service, you can explore the grounds to find the best backdrops for your photography session. You can host your reception in the barn, a charming event hall that can comfortably receive up to 200 people. The barn is replete with bucolic details that pay tribute to the venue’s agricultural heritage, such as the barrels, wood panels, and stone walls. There are also many modern features that are bound to impress your guests, from the expansive floor-to-ceiling windows to the decorative chandelier. As you wine and dine with your friends and family, you admire the eye-catching views of the grounds.

Sweet Briar Farm allows you to use the property for a whole weekend, giving you time to rehearse and decorate.

  • I cannot say enough great things about Sweet Briar Farm and the amazing owner, Toni Melton. Her talent and ability to transform her venue into your dream wedding goes beyond words. She is professional, she is kind, and she does her job very, very well. She went beyond just renting a beautiful venue. She helped bring our vision of an elegant wedding alive. Toni is incredibly easy to work with, kept everything positive and joyful, and worked well with the other vendors. With the help of Toni, my husband and I were able to enjoy the wedding planning process and our wedding day. Sweet Briar Farm is tucked away, surrounded by the piney woods of East Texas. It’s easy for guests to find, right off of a county road near Hwy 59, but it’s secluded, which offers you exclusivity. The venue itself is beautiful and hardly needs the help of any decorations. From the light fixtures, the outdoor patio and fireplace, to the huge sliding doors with floor to ceiling windows allowing a stunnin... Read more
