I honestly don't know where to begin. I had my wedding at the Woodlands with over 300 guests. I am still getting cards and compliments that said that was the best wedding they've ever been to. Rick and his staff are simply incredible! My parents own Frankie Carll Productions and so we know the wedding industry. For my special day, I knew exactly where I wanted my wedding...no where else but the Woodlands for me! Every detail was exactly how I wanted it and the entire staff went way above and beyond. Our guests talked about how amazing the food was all evening. The entire presentation was beyond wonderful. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect venue. If you want a simply gorgeous wedding, look no further than The Woodlands. They really made our dream a reality!!! Thank you to Rick, Diane and the entire staff. You are the epitome of professionals!!Sent on 07/19/2014

Everything was perfect from the moment we started to plan our wedding. We worked with both Rick and Gail and they were so easy to work with an answered all of our questions. Even though our wedding was very small they still took care of us as if we had a huge wedding and gave us the wedding of our dreams. The actual rehearsal and wedding day was handled by Gail and she was the best to work with and made sure we had nothing to worry about. Our rehearsal was at Creszeno's and it was a perfect way to start of the weekend. The staff and food was great. our ceremony was held in grove and it was decorated so beautifully. I can't say enough good things about the woodlands and their staff!Sent on 05/20/2017
