The place(BALL-EDDLEMAN-MCFARLAND HOUSE) is stunning and the staff very helpful and polite. Its was just stunning and glad my money went to the Historic Fort Worth Fund to help keep places like this in the world.

Thistle Hill is a beautiful facility and a great option for the price, but don't expect one ounce of customer service from the staff. When I first started looking into Thistle Hill as an option for my ceremony, I exchanged a few emails with the venue coordinator. She answered my questions by telling me to look at their website, which I had already looked at and did not have the answers to my questions. I was also told at first that a rehearsal was included in my package, but was later told that a rehearsal was not included in the 4 hour package and I would have to pay for the 7 hour package to have a rehearsal there. While a little irritating, the real issue came the week of the wedding.
The Thursday before my wedding, I received a phone call to let me know the wedding the night before mine was using a tent out on the lawn and they would not be taking it down before my wedding. It was a huge tent directly next to the area where my ceremony was to take place and I was told it would not be in there way because there should be room next to it to fit my chairs. When I said I had not planned on a tent being there and wanted it taken down, they said according to my contract they were not obligated to take it down, but if I really wanted it down we could pay $600 to have it removed. After reviewing the contract myself later that day, I found that the contract actually said the opposite, that you have to have your tent taken down before the next event. It wasn't until the next day and the third phone call where we had them read the contract out loud that they finally agreed to take down the tent.
The mansion itself is beautiful and the day of the wedding the tent was down and my lawn ceremony was just as I had imagined, but their customers are not their main concern.

Fantastic venue! All the staff were really nice. We were able to bring in our own catering. We did a butterfly release when we were leaving since there are restrictions on rice and bubbles. All the pictures look beautiful because the venue is such a wonderful place.

Beautiful venue!! More than I could have asked for. Made gorgeous pictures, especially at sunset. At night the house is beautifully lit. It is a good venue for people who don't want to get married in an popular place where everyone else gets married. Very unique and reasonably priced. The only criticism I have is that the company that runs the house for rentals could have been a little more accommodating. But otherwise, a beautiful house!
