Conveniently located just minutes away from Dallas Fort Worth Airport in the heart of Historic Downtown Grapevine, you'll find the beautifully restored historic Palace Arts Center the perfect venue for your wedding. This multi-use facility offers more than 15,000-square-feet for entertaining in two separate areas: the Palace Theatre and the Lancaster Theatre. You can begin the day by preparing for the festivities in the theatre’s dressing rooms, making you feel like a true star! The Palace Theatre is a breathtaking space to exchange vows. This space boasts a large stage area for your ceremony to take place while your guests watch from the 432 theatre seats. After your ceremony, sneak outside to take unique wedding portraits beneath the historic marquee. For your reception, the Lancaster Theatre can be transformed from a theatre style seating into a banquet hall style room. The brick walls of this room create a cozy ambiance while twinkling lights hang from the ceiling beams adding an elegant and romantic atmosphere. This room is the perfect place to stage a live band or DJ. You and your guests will dance the night away on the rich preserved hardwood floor.
