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!

Who says Houston couples can’t have the feel of an outdoor wedding venue but with the climate-controlled comfort of the great indoors?

If this is the wedding vibe you’re going for, we’d like to introduce you to Ashton Gardens, which seamlessly blends the beauty of nature’s bounty with classic ballroom wedding ambiance.

Ashton Gardens is actually two nearly identical venues (one in North Houston, one in West Houston).

Both offer a blend of forested splendor and romantic ballroom chic that’s a perfect fit for couples who want the feel of an outdoor wedding venue, but without the unpredictability of Mother Nature. Say, “I do,” in front of a backdrop of soaring windows looking out on lush trees, in Ashton Gardens’ lovely on-site chapel, with its country-church feel, and state-of-the-art technology. Then venture into the venue’s party space, enclosed in windows for wonderful sense of serenity, and accented with crystal chandeliers for an even more wonderful sense of…celebration!
