The Big E
“Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Why the name THE EMERSON?
True Story: We were going to name the venue…wait for it… THE VENUE (at Coral Lane). Our good friend and one to always be a straight shooter, Ciara from BASH CO EVENTS, quickly shot it down by saying WHAT A BORING NAME, FOR A VENUE THAT IS GOING TO BE AWESOME. We wanted purpose and meaning. The quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson stood out. It was everything we had focused our brand around in the rental world – just being US. Has it been easy trying to be different, not at all, but it has been extremely rewarding and something that we are still working towards daily.
PS How amazing is our logo by the one and only ALLI K?!?
The Emerson Event Venue provides a customizable experience unlike any other that offers diverse event spaces for weddings, corporate and special events. Located just outside of Dallas – Fort Worth on 10 acres of East Texas land, we offer a transitional concept that compliments the trend of steering away from traditional and embracing classic style with bold design.
Meet Lindsey + Natalie
We have been friends FOREVER… literally since preschool. Coral Lane Specialty Rentals was an idea, turned passion that two best friends made a reality. We wanted more… more for ourselves… more for our families and to make a difference. As we started growing, so did our dream. The big picture was to eventually have a venue that housed all of our beautiful rentals, along with a customizable event experience. December 2017, we signed on the dotted line and THE EMERSON Event Venue was born.
Co-Creator + Owner
THE WHY: I’ve always said if you can have a career and actually enjoy getting up every single day to do it… then you’ve figured out something most people search their entire lives for and never actually get to experience. I love the event industry, the path God has led me to, getting to work alongside my BFF, meeting some amazing souls and getting the opportunity to create things only dreams are made of!
THE HUBS: Married to my soul mate, Chris… we love watching Football together (specifically AGGIE football), WE LOVE FOOD – give us all the Chips + Hot Sauce, and traveling… see below why we don’t do that very often!
THE BABES: Mommy to Grayson, Meredith ‘Blake’ + Piper Kate
Co-Creator + Owner
THE WHY: One word – PASSION! I was at a point in my career where I was losing it and wanted to DO something about it. The two companies Lindsey and I have created are about bringing things together and making them beautiful. In the process of doing that, I have grown into a woman I am extremely proud of. A woman who works hard for her dreams, whose faith has grown in dividends and the relationships that have blossomed along the way.
THE HUBS: College sweethearts turned grown-ups (Drew and I met freshman year) who love doing life together… we love random date nights, being involved in the community + church youth group and apparently starting businesses – Drew is the co-creator + owner of Jefferson Street Boxing Club.
THE BABES: Mommy to Keegan + Kyler
