We are beyond excited to announce we have a new addition to the Walters Wedding Estates family! Formerly known as Champ D’Or, The Olana is our new luxury wedding venue located in the DFW metroplex. Our notable mansion is built on an expansive 40-acre estate complimented by its own lake. Inspired by French baroque architecture, our mansion was built as an homage to Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte in Paris. The estate features lush landscaping, a tea room modeled after New York’s Tavern on the Green, an indoor and outdoor pool, a tennis court, a bowling alley, expansive private suites and more.
