When it comes to weddings, it’s all about the ambiance, darlings — that total experience of sight, sound, fragrance, flavor, setting, landscape and design, all rolled together. And TBH, it’s hard to imagine a wedding location with more built-in ambiance than Agave Estates, Katy’s beautiful hidden gem, nestled into a 30-acre wildlife sanctuary that feels a million miles away from downtown Houston (in reality, it’s only 30).

When you first glimpse the terra cotta walls, wood arbors and curved archways of Agave’s private enclave, you may think you’ve somehow stepped back in time…and into an era of cobblestones and courtyards, the sound of a burbling fountain somewhere in the distance. But nope, no time travel here, honey. You’ve just found yourself face-to-face with a full-service wedding site designed specifically to create a sense of total escape and immersion for your outdoor wedding ceremony and unforgettable reception. In other words: You’ve found a little slice of Paradise.

For those couples seeking a true Spanish Villa vibe — and room to celebrate with up to 300 of their nearest and dearest — the estate’s Agave Road is a favorite. With towering oak trees, fluttering palms, huge hand-carved wood doors and 10,000 square feet of reception space, Agave Road doesn’t just offer ample space and great service, but some of the most gorgeous photo opps in the entire region.

For weddings on the more intimate side, Agave Real features natural stone and wrought-iron accents, glowing sconces, plus a lovely view of the lagoon-like reflecting pool, and is a superb celebration spot for groups of up to 200.

The newest member of the Agave Estates family is Agave Rio — a delightful patio restaurant serving up fresh seafood, steaks and Latin-influenced fare, along with classic, tropical-leaning cocktails, all in an al fresco environment that welcomes you to linger long, and savor the feeling of a relaxing oasis. It’s also a perfect place for elegant rehearsal dinners, engagement parties, bridal showers and day-after brunches. Want to try it out for yourself? Comment on our Agave-themed Facebook and Instagram posts, or email us your first and last name, fiancé’s name, wedding date and wedding venue (either booked or wish listed!) for automatic entry into our Agave Rio Dinner for 2 GIVEAWAY! One lucky bride or groom will WIN; winner will be notified on Tuesday, May 2 and announced on Facebook and Instagram. Shouldn’t it be…YOU?

WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON Spring 2015 | Real Wedding Feature

Holly & Elliot ~ September 1, 2013

Though they attended the same Fort Bend high school, Holly and Elliott didn’t actually meet until years later at a birthday party. “I saw Elliott playing giant Jenga, and instantly his smile drew me in,” Holly recounts. There were smiles all around when Elliott surprised Holly with his proposal in front of more than 20 family members and close friends at a Thanksgiving dinner the couple hosted at their home. And more smiles still when 180 guests gathered for the couple’s sunset wedding at Katy’s Agave Road, where, after a night of celebration, the newlyweds snuck outside for a last dance to Frank Sinatra’s “Fly Me to the Moon.”

Agave Estates Bridal Open House Wed. July 30

Monday, July 21st, 2014

Yearning to get away from it all…without really getting away from it all? We’d like to introduce you to an absolute treasure of a destination-wedding site (destination: Katy, Texas). Inspired by the landscape, textures and graciousness of Old Mexico, Agave Estates surrounds wedding couples and their guests with adobe hues and rustic wood beams, wrought-iron fixtures and the flicker of candlelight reflected in placid waters. Two unique venues set on two sprawling, wooded properties totaling 35 acres, Agave Estates features Agave Road, with capacity for 280 guests, and more intimate Agave Real, with room for 200. Both venues benefit from the talents and impeccable service of on-site wedding coordination and design operation Agave Brothers, which offers everything from floral design to ceremony and reception rentals to that tiered wedding confection you’ve envisioned in your happiest wedding dreams. Which means you can have your destination-wedding-cake and eat it too, without ever boarding a plane.

Experience Agave Estates for yourself next Wednesday, July 30, when the acclaimed Houston-area wedding venue throws open its gorgeous imported doors to welcome brides and their besties for tastings, tours and vendor meet-and-greets. The bridal event festivities start at 6 p.m. and go ’til 9:30, so even hardworking Houston brides who have a hard time leaving their work desks can get in on the action. RSVP today, and we’ll see you there!

Classic, Romantic Agave Road Wedding by Select Studios

Friday, March 22nd, 2013

Oh, how we love a bride who doesn’t sweat the small stuff. Of course, Liliana could have had a breakdown when she realized she’d forgotten the bag containing all her makeup, her spare shoes and her hair accessory back at the hotel where she’d gotten prepped. And sure, she could have given in to the frustration of dealing with a verrrry fussy bustle on her beautiful Pronovias gown. But, at she says, “At the end of the day, you just have to laugh and go with it!” We couldn’t agree more. Instead of focusing on glitches, our lovely bride decided to focus on Jesus, her handsome groom, and the 220 loving guests gathered at Agave Road to celebrate the couple’s union until 2 a.m., when the newlyweds departed for a few hours of shuteye before a 6 a.m. flight to their St. Lucia honeymoon. Thank you, Liliana, for the lesson in gracious bride-ing—and for sharing your picture-perfect Select Studios wedding photos, and joyful story, with us!
