Our wedding was fantastic! March is a great time to get married in Houston. The weather is just beginning to warm up without being too hot or humid. We did most of the planning and prep on our own; we were able to save a lot of money, but definitely had some stressful moments. Weddingmapper was a fantastic resource for organizing our guest list, presents, etc.
The service was fantastic! The eggplant parmesan and antipasti bar were delicious. The rest of the menu was very good. Great option without breaking the bank.
We were able to purchase all of our beer and wine from Spec's and saved quite a bit of money! The staff was extremely knowedgeable about the products, and helpful in determining how much to get. We ended up with the perfect amount!
Rather than having a massive wedding cake we opted for one cake for us to cut and to have a mini dessert option. We had mini cupcakes (5 different varieties), mini tarts, mini truffles, and mini stuffed canoli's. Everything was fantastic!
In the beginning this venue was perfect- you rent the building for the day and bring in your own vendors. It is a unique building with lots of character. But you can only view the property on Saturday mornings from 9-10am. They are very strict on what you can and can not do. The main contact is not very friendly. Also, it says it fits 128 people in the upstairs ballroom, but it is very cramped and does not leave much room for dancing.
