You know that feeling you get when you walk into the cool hush of a big, imposing, historic library? Well, you get that feeling and then some when you enter downtown Houston’s Julia Ideson Library, with its sophisticated grandeur and ornate interiors. But here’s the thing: When it’s your wedding at the Julia Ideson, you don’t have to hush! Oh no, darling. Celebrate your nuptials inside this stunning 1926 structure, and you’ll get to dine, dance, laugh, talk and enjoy every moment of your once-in-a-lifetime event, surrounded by gleaming marble pillars, beneath the garden of gilded wood flowers that wraps around the ceiling.

As for the building’s Spanish-influenced exterior? It’s got plenty of places for gorgeous bridal portraits, couple pix and romantic photo ops, whether you opt for the magnificent column-flanked front steps, or a tranquil, tree-lined path on the library’s manicured grounds. Searching for a truly unique and ineffably cool place to say, “I do?” Check out this historic Houston treasure, let them know you found them right here on the lil’ ol’ Houston Wedding Blog, and start planning the urban-swank wedding you’ve seen in your dreams!

How’d you like to get married in a brand-spanking-new venue–one that has outdoor ceremony space overlooking a scenic pond, and indoor party space in a chic and contemporary ballroom with glittering chandeliers and massive windows, set on acres of verdant grounds? You can at 15 Acres–one of our fave new wedding venues, located a short hop northwest of Houston, in picturesque Hockley. What else we love about this versatile local-destination-wedding spot? We were just getting to that…

1.) New space, experienced owners. Mother-and-daughter team Stephanie and Ari have a combined 25 years of event-planning experience, so while the venue may be brand new, the team running it have established vendor relationships and extensive venue management expertise.

2.) Full flexibility or full service: your choice. Another rare find is the ability to select a full-service package, including everything from flowers to food to photo booths, or total flexibility when it comes to bringing in outside vendors. 15 Acres offers both options, as well as “in-between” services, where they can take care of segments of your wedding, and let you handle the rest.

3.) Pre-wedding prep space for gals and guys alike. Since facility rental at 15 Acres includes a full 12 hours of access, it’s nice to know that both the bride and bridesmaids, and groom and groomsmen, will have use of private, well-appointed, beautifully decorated dressing rooms/lounge space for the duration of their special day, ensuring maximum relaxation…and maximum impact when they make their way down the aisle!
