NaKayshions’ four-venue setting offering outshines most venues in north Texas and beyond.


The Making of NaKayshions
NaKayshions LLC, located at 432 So. Clark Rd. announced its opening March 17, 2007. This is a family owned company operated by Nancy and Samuel Jackson, Jr. The idea to open a facility of this magnitude was a vision from God. Initially the objective was to renovate an old existing frame home at this present location, and to transform the entire site into a beautiful oasis. But with the many challenges and finances it took in doing so, it became evident it wasn’t cost effective.

Instead, a new structure called The Grand Hall was designed and built. The Grand Hall is a beautiful decorated facility adorned with chandeliers, stained glass, raised stage, disco ball and a wooden dance floor. The facility has been the chosen site for many weddings, receptions, award banquets, meetings, dinners, conferences, birthday parties, and more. The Grand Hall Facility seating capacity is 300.

The second objective was to build a lovely garden gazebo overlooking a tranquil lake, and within a few months it had gained popularity. The lovely Garden Gazebo at the Lakeside is surrounded by thick trees and knock out roses. The perfect place for a Cinderella Wedding. Various picnic tables and a pavilion area line the borders of the lake. The garden is suited for Mother and Daughter Teas, Fashion Shows, Garden Parties, Picnics and Family Reunions. The Garden Gazebo Capacity is 300.

Once that portion of the building was in operation, their third objective was to save an old historic 18th century church from demolition and to move it from Coit Rd in North Dallas to Cedar Hill, Texas. This quaint church had family ties founded by Mr. Jackson’s great grandfather, Mr. Moses Jackson and six other free slaves. Television stations and local newspapers captured the historic move followed by many written articles…”Dallas Woman Finds Purpose”

The Historic Chapel was originally constructed in 1890 and beautifully restored in 2007. The chapel has a large bell that’s perfect for a wedding day. The chapel is ideal for start up ministries, christenings, memorials, and workshops. Since it’s origin, the Chapel has filmed one Video, and included in the selection as a film location site by Governor Perry of Texas. The chapel has 16 pews, stage, podium, bridal room, restrooms, and a foyer. Seating capacity 100.

In 2013, the Newly Contracted Area called The Garden Terrace joined the other sites. It is very accommodating for a smaller intimate wedding taking on the characteristic of a destination wedding such as those on the Lakeshore of Galveston or Padre island.

​Samuel, a retired Electrical Engineer, with a strong background in mathematics makes him the go to source for the business management and operations. While Nancy, a retired Educator and Counselor for more than 30+ years is passionate and naturally gifted as a decorator and wedding planner. Together, along with their team seeks to be a company respected and admired for its values and standards…All which has contributed to the company’s growth and success.
