The greater Houston area is rich in biodiversity and blessed with a nearly year round warm climate, so it’s no surprise that many wedding venues in Southeast Texas are the garden variety. For nature-loving couples who want greenery and rustic vintage details to take center stage at their nuptials, these wedding venues in Houston and Beaumont wedding venues are definitely worth some serious consideration. But, couples longing for a bit more elegance, don’t click away just yet! While some of these venues in Houston and surrounding areas definitely don’t shy away from that quintessential Cowboy culture Texas is known for, other venues bring the sophistication of a ballroom to the outdoors. From wedding venues in Southeast Texas that are a stone’s throw from downtown Houston to Beaumont wedding venues that are closer to the Gulf, there’s something for every couple.

Broussard Farm/Sevenne Hall
While plenty of wedding venues have a family “feel,” Broussard Farm is owned and operated by an actual family — the Broussard family, to be precise. Built in 1857 by the owner’s great-great grandfather, it’s a working ranch and private home that makes for perfect country-inspired weddings. Sevenne Hall (pronounced “say-van”) is a newer edition built to look like classic Texas dance halls and offers a great indoor option for when swampy Beaumont humidity is too much to take.

With two locations in North Houston and West Houston, there are too many good things to mention about Ashton Gardens. Bathed in opulent white details that are perfectly set off by the wood paneling and flooring, Ashton Gardens kills it in the rustic-meets-chic department. For ceremonies, there’s a gorgeous chapel with exposed wood beams and white wooden pews that gives the feel of being outdoors because of the ample natural light pouring inside. Receptions take place in an equally gorgeous dining room complete with white linens and plush upholstered wedding chairs.

A historic home on Houston’s Westheimer Road turned entertainment venue turned wedding venue, AvantGarden’s enclosed, urban-country courtyard is one of the most perfect wedding venues in Southeast Texas. AvantGarden was artfully restored multiple times after a century of use — first as a private home that Hollywood producer Howard Hughes may or may not have played in before being turned a halfway house then abandoned. Equidistant from two of Houston’s trendiest neighborhoods, Montrose and Midtown, AvantGarden offers four event spaces and has a capacity to hold up to 180 wedding guests.
