The Grand Ivory is a beautiful, southern inspired gem hidden away is Leonard, TX. You can’t beat the scenic views from this brand new venue! The bridal and groom cottages are a great place to relax and get ready the day of the wedding. They have three areas for the actual wedding itself whether the ceremony be indoors or outdoors. We were lucky to get to hear about The Grand Ivory from Ashley, one of the owners.

When and how did you get into the wedding industry?

In 2016 we began building The Grand Ivory. It was always a lifelong dream and we feel blessed we were able to make it happen sooner than we ever imagined. We open our doors July 1, 2017.


Where is the Grand Ivory located?

We are based 25 minutes north east of McKinney in a small town called Leonard, TX. The properties views and character is what brought us to the town. From the moment we saw the property, we just knew it was meant for The Grand Ivory.

Why do you think your clients buy from you or what are some of the best compliments you’ve received from your clients?

Some of the best compliments received are when couples step foot on the property and say “I love this place” or when they tell us how much thought and detail was put into The Grand Ivory. It’s so special when the venue matches our client’s dreams.
