Its name is Spanish for “wood,” which is perfectly appropriate, considering Madera Estates’ majestic pine-covered acres located just north of The Woodlands. This Sunday, from 5 to 8 p.m., Conroe’s picturesque haven welcomes you, your spouse-to-be, and your closest advisors and opinion-givers for an evening of sips, bites, tours and intros to Madera’s preferred vendors. Wander Madera Estates’ lovely wooded grounds, snap a pic beside its iconic fountain, peek in on Madera’s gracious bridal suite, and take a few practice twirls in Madera’s beautiful ballroom, with its gleaming floors, twinkling chandeliers and handcrafted mirrors.
Best of all? You’ll get to experience a bit of everything this truly, totally full-service wedding venue has to offer, including fabulous floral displays, great entertainment and delicious food. RSVP here for Madera Estates Summer Open House on Sunday, Aug. 30 from 5 to 8 p.m.
Go. See. Love!
