Luckily, many wedding venues in and around Houston are a one-stop-shop, where you can say I do in a lovely chapel, then head to your reception space just a few steps away.
Read on for our list of 10 Texas wedding venues with on-site chapels.
1. The Bell Tower on 34th
Kiss your groom in the Campanille Chapel, lofty space with terracotta accents, grand iron chandeliers and soaring windows that overlook one of The Bell Tower’s verdant courtyards, complete with a tranquil waterwall, making it simple to move your ceremony outdoors on a beautiful day. Choose from several ceremonies and reception sites at this old-world style venue – from intimate ceremonies in a romantic wine room to a grand celebration in one of the ballrooms.
2. Deep in the Heart Farms

After you say I do, join friends and loved ones in the spacious and modern reception barn, complete with a view you’ll have to see to believe.

3. The Peach Orchard
Tucked in The Woodlands, TX, this venue is full of peachy personality and is rich in history. The elegant white chapel is on the same grounds where a barn surrounded by a thriving peach orchard once stood. An ode to the original structure, the chapel’s framework is similar to the barn, including exposed wooden beams, crystal chandeliers and white brick, which adds a nice texture against the heirloom windows where mature oak trees and the outdoor garden are visible through.

In Texas, you can never go wrong with a rustic barn wedding; however, for the bride or groom looking for a more refined option, “the chandelier barn,” at The Carriage House is a fantastic option. The light and airy chapel features a wall of windows, highlighting the lovely view of sun-dappled trees and surrounding property. The chapel can comfortably seat 225 people with additional seating as an option, and the photo opportunities are endless, as this venue has many unique features to explore.
