Couples describe us as "Unique." As you move through the bridal suite and step onto the huge back porch, there is such a sense of peace when the pond comes into view. We consider every guest family because it's so important to feel at home on your wedding day. In addition, our brides love the untouched surroundings of the Sam Houston National Forest. Brides say At The Shire is "Bohemian" or "Rustic"; however, our couples find a subtle elegance as night falls and the fairy lights create a romantic glow.
Our uniqueness has made us one of the most in-demand venues in Texas. Aside from our authentic giant Nordic tipis, brides love the ability to DIY their wedding while getting a lot of support from us leading up to the big day and on the actual day itself. Our weekend price point for most months minus any specials is $7200 for a Friday, Saturday, Sunday. Our couples looking to save love the $4900 option for a Monday - Thursday. We make it easy to say yes by offering quick 20 min virtual tours, specials, discounts, and 12-month financing.
We have perfected the DIY wedding by partnering with talented vendors who will work with any budget to build your perfect DIY day. Couples book with us because we are different. Your wedding is one of the most important memories in life. Lovers chose our magical tipis because At The Shire was built with love and offers a rare aesthetic unlike any other venue in the United States.

    All around amazing experience

    Such a beautiful place! Both the At the Shire venue and staff were incredible from first booking till after the wedding was done. So many of our guests have reached out to us saying that it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to. I could go on and on, but I’ll keep it simple and say it was an all around amazing experience.

    Matt and Kim’s Wedding 4-3-22

    We had a blast wedding At The Shire on 4-3-22. My husband and I have to admit that this wedding venue is magical. For some reasons, this wedding venue brings good energy to our guests that we cannot explain by words. It makes us happy to see our beloved ones have a fun memorable night celebrating our special wedding day and had themselves beautiful photos at this heaven At The Shire. In fact, I had to invite 8 professional photographers to make sure that we can get every corners of the wedding in this dreaming place because we did not want to miss any corner of this beauty. Last but not least, we specially thank you to the manager Autumn to help us manage our wedding so professionally. In addition, it really satisfies our eyes to see the beauty of love from the owners Paul and Katy and how they work hard together to make our dreaming wedding come true. Our on-site coordinator Matthew says a wedding At The Shire is something our guests will forever talk about and he is right!

    At the Shire's reply:

    Thank you for the kind review, Kim! Your wedding was truly magical and glad we got to be a part of it! Thank you for choosing the Shire!

    Gorgeous perfection!

    My husband and I were married here a couple of weeks ago, and the experience was wonderful. The day of was incredible, and went off without a hitch. The venue is absolutely magical. It was beyond anything I had envisioned. I still have guests telling me how different, cool and beautiful At the Shire was. I cannot recommend them enough! Katy and her husband have created something really special here. I actually wish I could do it all over again because it was such an amazing night! Thank you so much to all of you!

    At the Shire's reply:

    Thank you for the lovely review! Your wedding was so beautiful! Thank you for choosing the Shire and come back and visit anytime!

Katy and Paul met in Los Angeles at their yoga teacher training. Paul went back to the UK and Katy back to Australia. They decided to meet up 14 months later at a friends yoga studio. They decided they wanted to take their yoga traveling and went around the world teaching yoga for 4 and a half years. It was when they were in Annecy, France for a friend's wedding they experienced the magical tipis. After they got married in Gilbraltar, they decided to move back to Houston, where Katy is from. Being nature lovers they are, they decided to move to the Sam Houston National Forest in Huntsville. Nestled in 33 acres they created this beautiful unique tipi wedding/event venue. They are excited to share this magical place with you. Stay tuned for a yoga studio and more accomodation coming soon to The Shire.
