"One of the BEST wedding venues in Houston! From the first time we toured The Sam and met with Michelle, we were totally set on having our wedding here! The Veranda is such a unique space in Houston, and if you're looking to host out-of-town guests, the hotel has very high-quality accommodations. Also, the convenience of having a venue that provides food and beverages was such a plus. They also provide a list of preferred vendors who are familiar with the space, which made it feel like a one-stop-shop! With COVID impacting our wedding, Michelle and her team were very flexible with the adjustments we made, and in the end our wedding was PERFECT and better than we could have imagined! Our guests are still raving about the food, which we were able to customize during our tasting. Michelle and her team are simply the best, and if you need a venue for a small/medium-sized wedding this is the one!" - Amy S. & Jon A. (Wedding 10/17/2020)

"Thank you so much for all your help, Michelle! You really made the whole process so easy and Adam and I both enjoyed working with you and the rest of the staff. We're so glad that you were able to come back in time for our wedding-it wouldn't have been the same without you. And please give our regards to the chef - everyone was completely blown away by the food and we heard from many guests that it was the best food they had ever had a wedding before!" - Jessica R. & Adam.

"I love love love the vibe at The Sam Houston Hotel. You can feel the history of the building even though it's completely remodeled. Michelle Scrimger was amazing to work with. She answered all of my questions and I asked A LOT of questions! She was amazing in helping us figure out the layout and just so patient. We got complimented on how great the food was at our wedding and how beautiful and classy of a place The Sam was. From the very start to the day after the wedding, the group at The Sam was just absolutely amazing. The venue itself was gorgeous. At the Veranda, you get an 'outdoorsy-rooftop' feeling without the mosquitoes or humidity that Houston has. It is completely enclosed. The greenery wall that stretches from one wall to the other was gorgeous. I didn't really need to do much decorating except for our sweetheart table. You will not be disappointed if you have your wedding at The Sam. We highly recommend! Thank you to everyone at The Sam for making our wedding so memorable!" - Donna C. & Jeson H. (Wedding 10/26/19)
