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! So when it came to wedding ceremony decor, they kept it “simple and elegant,” Claire says. “White flowers on the ends of the pews in the chapel, some white flowers on the altar, and windows all around.” Then, for the reception, “There were lanterns or small vases of white and purple flowers on each table, and the tablecloths were simple white,” she notes. “There was a fountain in the center of the reception hall that provided lovely background noise to accompany the music, and throughout the hall was an extension of the paving stones in the garden outside.” Searching for a wedding venue near Houston that is a short distance from the city, but feels like it’s an enchanted garden estate, a million miles away? You need to check out Heather’s Glen! And no matter where you wed, make sure you check out every nook and cranny of your venue for wedding photo opps, and give your photographer a list of all the places you want bridal portraits and couple photos shot. You’ll be so glad you did! Congratulations, Claire and Jesse; we wish you a lifetime of love!
