Balmorhea was amazing!
Four months before my daughters wedding, we found ourselves in the midst of a pandemic! Unchartered territory for everyone- including our wedding venue.Sent on 08/26/2020
Balmorhea turned out to be our constant!
They kept up with all the rules and regulations and all the changes that happened during those 4 months. I know this because I stayed in contact with Holly (our Balmorhea specialist :) and I even heard from Melissa a few times. Holly answered All of my questions and concerns. She was fabulous!
Balmorhea was everything we could have asked for- even during a pandemic! They felt our worries and shared in our joy! Balmorhea was the Best!!

The staff at Balmorhea as well as the appearance of the venue was absolutely stellar. Gorgeous scenery, and amazing photography spots. Would love to shoot here again!
I have had the honor of working with brides at Balmorhea quite a few times this year and last and it is a beautiful venue. For anyone looking for a beautiful landscape and a great indoor setting, this is a great venue. I'm so happy I get to be there the next two weekends in a row with my beautiful brides.
Great customer service! Melissa is so sweet and nice. Beautiful venue!!!
