Elegant barn weddings await Houston brides and grooms at The Carriage House, located a short drive from Houston and just minutes from The Woodlands.
At this charming rustic-elegant Conroe venue, you’ll find a romantic country-chapel ceremony space, lined with windows to let in the abundant natural light, and accented with glittering crystal chandeliers. Prefer the idea of outdoor “I do’s?” The Carriage House has got you covered, with a vine-entwined arbor for you two, and antique pews for your guests, all set upon a wooded backdrop that includes a pond and burbling fountain. The main event space, featuring 35-foot-high timber beam ceilings and brilliant crystal chandeliers, can accommodate up to 300 guests, for a celebration filled with relaxed elegance and true Texas hospitality.
Among our favorite features at The Carriage House: a vintage-inspired bridal suite, featuring antique vanities and classic white-leather styling chairs (there’s an equally well-outfitted groom’s suite for the groom and his guys).
The Carriage House also offers a super-flexible vendor policy, so you can choose vendors that fit with your wedding day vision or opt for an all-inclusive package that can include catering, linens and everything in between. Schedule your appointment now to tour The Carriage House, one of our favorite spots for elegant barn weddings near Houston, and make sure to let them know you found them at Weddings in Houston, for that little extra bit of VIP treatment you deserve!
Talk about a meet cute: When Ashley and Andrew both showed up a Halloween party dressed as Tom Cruise (Ashley as T.C. from “Risky Business,” Andrew as T.C. from “Top Gun”), it was only natural that they’d find each other and hit it off. That was in 2016. Two years later, the self-proclaimed goofballs–both of whom say that a sense of humor and ability to make one another laugh is what they love most about each other–tied the knot at The Astorian, in the presence of 200 loved ones. “We were raised to try and waste nothing, repurpose much, include those who are challenged, and when spending time or money, make decisions with love and prayer that support those efforts,” the couple tells us. And by taking special measures with their wedding planning, such as delivering their repurposed bouquets to senior assisted living communities in the Medical Center area of Houston, and choosing guest favors from Sweet Heat Jam Co., which sells products handmade by mentally and physically challenged individuals in Katy, the couple was able to achieve that, “and so much more, on the BEST DAY EVER!” Ashley says. We invite you to take a moment and enjoy this thoughtful and elegant wedding (including a GORGEOUS cake from local legend Cakes By Gina) as we wish Ashley and Andrew a lifetime of love!Click here to read the rest of this post »

Claire and Jesse’s wedding at Heather’s Glen is a perfect example of finding the right venue for your wedding, and then taking full advantage of it with your wedding photos. The couple, who chose idyllic Conroe venue Heather’s Glen for its “natural light and beautiful gardens,” didn’t want a ton of frills for their intimate wedding. But they did want to make the most of the wedding venue’s charming gazebo, white iron benches, lush lawns, blooming flowers, elegant bridal cottage and lovely country chapel…especially for bridal portraits!
