The owners of The Nest at Ruth Farms were raised in homes where spending time with family and celebrating all of life’s joy’s was naturally the overflow after their daily work. For LaWanna & Chris, home was the place where you could be your truest self and always know that you were surrounded by people who cared for you the most and would be there for you with all of life's ups and downs.

With love for hospitality instilled in them both combined with their love for hosting family get-togethers at their home, it was a natural “yes” when their daughter presented her idea of opening a wedding/event venue. Both loved the idea of being able to build a beautiful space for others to come and experience some of life’s greatest celebrations, and with that they got started on building their dream!

It was a natural and easy fit being that both LaWanna and her daughter Courtney are interior designers and own a design firm in DFW. Through The Nest Design Firm, both were able to quickly get contractors on board, make design selections, and in 2017 The Nest was built and open for business. Their intention in the building & design process was for the space to feel light, easy, beautiful, and functional, which has earned them a reputation in the DFW wedding industry as one of the most beautiful and accommodating barn style venues in existence today.
