These two badass wedding venues in Houston are very different from each other, like in my previous blog. I love featuring venues that are totally different, so you get a good idea as to the variety across Houston. Both of these venues have a totally different feel, one in the downtown area and the other in College Station. I love them both for completely different reasons!
Peach Creek Ranch
Peach Creek Ranch is located in College Station, so it is a bit of a drive from Houston. But honestly, it’s worth the drive. It is a barn-style venue that has a ton of awesome amenities. My personal favorite is that there is a cottage for both the bride and the groom to get ready in. A lot of times, unless you are in a hotel, the groom gets the sloppy seconds when it comes to getting ready. I love that there is a designated space for him and that it is really nice. It makes it easy to capture pictures in that kind of atmosphere.
I also love the waterfront ceremony area that can be decorated in different ways, for different vibes. It’s a big space that can hold up to 275 seated people, which is great for big weddings. From my experience there, it has never felt overly crowded, regardless of the quantity of people invited. Also, the chandeliers in the barn are freakin gorgeous and make first dances look elegant AF. If a barn venue is your jam, you seriously need to consider this place!!
Nouveau Antique Art Bar
Pronounced “New-Vo”, this venue is one of the most unique in all of Houston! It has a huge collection of Tiffany lamps that are hung from the ceiling, and make photos look almost unmatched. This venue works best for couples who want a dark, more distinctive look to them. The walls are painted all black and there aren’t any windows, but when you add flash, it turns into badass looking pictures! Like the Dunlavy, Nouveau Antique Art Bar doesn’t have a place for the couple to get ready, all my couples have gotten ready at a hotel before the ceremony or reception. Although the website doesn’t say how many people they can fit, I can tell you the ceremony is 50 people or less but the reception can double that number.
Located in mid-town, this venue has a lot of cool photography areas around it, so you can nip away for fun photos, if you desire. If you aren’t totally into driving everywhere on your wedding day, there are lots of spots around the building for photos too. I truly love this venue and love how unique it is.
