Great place to host a corporate event. When you walk into the space you can't help but notice it's pristine condition and how well kept it is. The smell was refreshing and it was comforting to see that cleanliness was a standard there. (Slate Staff) were an absolute pleasure to work with along with the rest of the staff. As a man who wears many hats in my company, it was paramount that I find someone who could streamline the planning process for me, and they did just that. If you need a place to host an event in the north Dallas area, look no further.

I had my wedding reception here and everything went perfectly! (Slate Employee) helped us think of details we didn't even consider and recommended great affordable vendors like Gus with Your DJ. The linen company and caterer were great as well!

We threw my parents a surprise party for their 50th wedding anniversary. Working with Sherry at Slate was so easy. The venue was absolutely beautiful. Paco and his team made setting up a breeze. They also made the flow of the party so smooth. I couldn't have don't it without their help. The party couldn't have been more perfect!

Thank you! The staff was amazing, we really enjoyed working with all of them. They were very helpful and the room was set perfectly when we arrived. Slate has always been a great venue and we will continue to spread the word.
The venue was awesome, the staff was awesome. The draping that BEBE did was magical. It absolutely turned around the look of the place. Once the candles were lit with the uplighting, it was absolutely fabulous. The place and wait staff were fantastic. You did a great job stepping in and helping as well as Paco. I sure hope you all pay him well, he was awesome.

I was the DJ for a May 22, 2016 wedding. This is the first time I had the privilege of working side by side with (Slate Coordinator). Not only is she so precise in the operation of the wedding day, she even helped with provide solutions when a vendor made a mistake and she did an outstanding job of taking all the stress off the bride and finding a solution for everything.
Watching her coordinate the ceremony was amazing. She was so proficient and made everything run very smoothly. I can't wait for another opportunity to work at the Slate and will be spreading the word to brides about this venue. Thank you for providing a 5 star experience to the bride and her family!

(Slate Coordinator) and her staff at the Slate Venue is top notch. From the beginning of the execution of the contract till the event day, we had no problems. She goes over and beyond to make sure your event is carried out with the most professional and least amount of stress possible. In 2015, my organization used Slate Venue for nearly all of our events and in 2016 we booked a few as well. We did small business workshops, vendor shows and a holiday gala. Thank you for delivering the best services. We love using the slates and look forward to having more events there.

Comments: (Slate), thank you very much for all your help with our wedding!. I have highly appreciated all your time and effort. Also, lots of thanks to Paco!!!
You were great in communicating with me and I would like people to know that. Staff members (especially Paco) were extremely helpful, too.
Thanks again for all your work in my wedding!
For future brides and grooms, here it is the poem Monica has sent me after my wedding:
"Let no sadness come to your heart
Let no trouble come to your arms
Let no conflict come to your eyes
May your Soul be filled with the Blessing of Joy and Peace"
Isn't it amazing!!! She has made my day!!!

I have spent the past five years throwing events in multiple different country clubs and hotels but as my volunteer program grew, my budget did not. We were outgrowing the venues in size and most of the menu offerings were outrageously priced, especially for a non-profit like us. I found myself desperate to find a space that was elegant but large enough to fit my group. Classy but not over the top in pricing or “minimum” orders. Thank goodness I found Slate! I came across Slate at II Creeks when I was shopping next door and decided to stop in. The staff was so kind. I did not have an appointment and they were setting up for a fairly large rehearsal dinner, but they immediately showed me around, explained the different rooms, amenities and packages that were available and answered all of my crazy questions. I immediately booked them for my party in 2012 and haven’t looked back. (Slate Coordinator) is so easy to work with and has the best ideas no matter what size event you are throwing. She helps decorate, will assist in choosing the menu and most importantly, get the best deals from the vendors that she is connected with. The name says it all…Slate…it’s a blank slate. You can do SO much with the room. I’ve done romantic, holiday, and even a Dr. Seuss themed party! The view from the great room is gorgeous and is a prime location for beautiful photos. Paco’s team are experts in events and customer service. I’ve had some pretty outlandish requests over the years and Paco always nods his head and says, “Absolutely, we can do that for you.” And he does! From making sure my microphone and sound system is working to setting up the most beautiful buffet and table settings, his team can do it all. I highly recommend Slate, not only for the amazing staff and amenities but because I truly feel this is the hidden gem of Richardson, Texas. I am forever grateful to their team for making my events special and creating memories that will last a lifetime. Seeing pictures of happy volunteers are worth more than gold…and THAT is priceless!

Thank you seems like such a simple couple of words but it is just where I have to start to express my gratitude for making the wedding reception so special. Everything was just perfect… if I didn’t look like it that morning, please forgive me—it was just that my mind was going in a million directions that day. But when we arrived, no detail was overlooked… everyone loved the venue and raved about it. I got lots of compliments about the reception… the room was the perfect size. I know Allison will also share her thanks when she gets home from the honeymoon…and I’ll share photographs as well when we get them from Lorena Burns, our photographer. The room was full of love that evening with our dearest friends and family there. Thanks to Paco and the whole staff for going above and beyond. Every vendor you recommended was top notch… from Gus to Josie to Gina. It all went off without a hitch.
Many thanks to you.
Subject: Our Experience with (Our Coordinator) and Slate
My husband and I would like to let you know that (Slate) and all the staff at your venue were amazing as we prepared for our wedding. Our experience was stress-free and (Our Coordinator) was willing, and did go the extra mile in order for us to have the wedding reception that we envisioned. She was patient, flexible, and willing to help us in any that way she could. I cannot express how blessed we feel to have had our wedding reception at Slate II at Creeks. Our family and friends were very complimentary on how beautiful the venue was and how professional, polite, and kind all of the staff were that night. We hope to have the pleasure of hosting another event and working with Monica and the staff in the future.
