If you’ve happened upon this post as a newly engaged bride or groom to be, what an exciting life phase you’re in right now!  You’re engaged and at the beginning of your wedding planning journey. If you’re searching for a stunning wedding venue in the Houston area, to host the party of a lifetime take a peek at this list of options that are sure to impress you!  

Houston is home to some of the most stunning wedding venues. With an abundance of options, you’ll find the perfect venue to suit your style and taste, no matter where you look. And If you love bright & airy or true-to-color photos like me, even better, all of these options will work to achieve that look! 

Here’s my take on some of the best wedding venues in Houston and other nearby suburbs!

Boxwood Manor

Where Southern Chic and Modern luxury forms a perfect union!  This gorgeous property features a gorgeous manor and a chapel conveniently set just a few steps away from each other. When you factor in the gorgeous bridal cottage and swanky groom’s suite to equation Boxwood Manor is as perfect as a venue can get. 

The Manor for your reception is truly a blank canvas and can be completely transformed based on the individual aesthetic of your wedding.  It’s one of the most spacious and refined manor-style wedding venues in Houston. The two-story reception space includes two full-service bars. With high ceilings and large windows, natural light floods into the manor as you enjoy your reception.

Sandlewood Manor

A luxury victorian southern chic venue housed on a beautiful and secluded estate that offers nine unique locations on its property.   The Manor House is a gorgeous space for you and your best girls to be pampered on the wedding day, while the groom and is crew have completely separate quarters to hang out in before the wedding festivities begin.   The gorgeous chapel or century oak offer amazing ceremony options and the reception hall will leave your guests in awe as they dance the night away beneath the elegant crystal chandeliers.  

The Homestead of Danville

Nestled in Willis, Texas just north of Houston, The Homestead will win you over the moment you walk through the sliding glass doors.   Everything in this gorgeous venue is Pinterest worthy.  The lobby is “Anthropologie meets RH” and it will have you and your guests swooning!!!   Boasting gorgeously appointed getting ready suites for both the girls and the guys, fun unisex baths, and the windows of the reception hall is what dreams and good parties are made of!

The Peach Orchard

Inspired by Northern European architecture and features three spaces perfectly curated spaces for an amazing wedding experience.   The high ceilings, exposed brick, and wood beams will transport you from The Woodlands area, where the venue is located, to a lovely chateau in the European countryside.  With 16,000 square feet of combined celebrations spaces, this venue space is the perfect space to celebrate even the posh affair.  It’s no surprise that why the Peach Orchard is becoming one of Houston’s most popular venue.  

There are so many amazing venues in the Houston area that it be nearly impossible to fit them all in one post. Stay tuned for a Part II and maybe Part III.
