Helloooooo there other Erin!

 

I am getting married at the Petroleum Club downtown in December which is very convenient for us because we live just outside of downtown too. It’s going to be here before I know it!

Where are you getting married in Sugar Land?

Hi ladies!  I live in Sugar Land, but I’m getting married in Vegas.  Let me know if there are any questions I can answer about Sugar Land.

Hello! I live in Houston, but I’m getting married in Galveston (where I grew up). It’ll end up being a "destination" wedding for most of our guests, so that’ll be fun!

My mom has the name of someone local for flowers.  I can’t remember it right now.  When she gets back in town next week I’ll find out.  There is a couple, the wife is a florist and the husband is a photographer.  She also has a name of a videographer she has used for business and loves. 

George Ranch is fun…I haven’t been there since I was a kid.  I am at SWCC a couple times a month for meetings.  They seem to have a lot of turnover in catering employees, but then again Sugar Creek Country Club also seems to have that problem.  

 And no, I don’t have a rhyming name. 🙂

ErinSea, the online pictures of Brisoce Manor are true to the look whether it’s decorated for an event or not.  That’s something that totally sold me on the place.  My mom was even impressed how true to real life the pictures are.

Both Jen (manager) and Rachel (BTB cater) are easy to work with and fairly go with the flow.  All of my vendors have worked there before and have nothing but great things to say about the location and the people so I’m really excited to have gotten it.  I’d be happy to send you the pricing structure and rental agreement if you are interested.

Hi, Ladies!

 I live in Houston and am getting married in New Orleans, LA.  However, most of my vendors are here in Texas and I’m paying a pretty petty to send them over to New Orleans (esp during MARDI GRAS!! EEKS!).  If there is anyone who is thinking of DIY invitations, table tents, menus, etc, please let me know!

 

I have a GOCCO!

I am a newlywed from Sugar Land and a wedding photographer.

Erin, we are photographing a wedding at St. Laurence right after the construction is done! Our bride decided to use their small chapel, though. She’s having her reception at Safari Texas Ranch. We’ve found that it’s a pretty popular place (we have 3 couples doing their reception there this year!), although a bit crowded. And I’ve heard really good things about Briscoe Manor, but have yet to check it out myself.

Anyway, we had our wedding ceremony at George Ranch and I really liked it. We had a few snags (which I can share in more detail upon request) but overall it was a really nice place to have a wedding. The coordinator Kristi really loves what she does. If you want to see photos of George Ranch all decked out for a wedding, let me know and I’ll send to you our proofing site. Also, they don’t advertise this, but they have a gorgeous treehouse nestled in a giant oak tree that you can get married in.

Our reception was at St. Arnold’s Brewery in Houston. This was probably my favorite aspect of the wedding. Grand ballroom it is not, but it looks great at night, was incredibly fun, and they’ll give you all the beer you can drink, included in the total bill, at a *really* reasonable price. And they are just plain nice people. It was perfect for beer geeks like us.

I used a florist located in SW Houston-Wendy at FJ Florist. She is hands down the nicest vendor we had! You walk into her shop, and you get a hug. When I stopped by to check out the trial run of our centerpieces, she sent it home with me. She even gave us a beautiful arrangement for our reception as a personal gift. She delivered both to George Ranch and St. Arnold (which are far from each other!) with no problem, and her prices were less than another florist I checked out. Also, she just knew what the hell she was doing. I highly recommend her, in case you haven’t figured that out by now.

Anyway, I’m happy to provide advice/reflections for anyone, as well as more vendor recommendations. Of course, I happen to know a great photographer, so you know what my answer is for that.
