Many of our couples enjoy having outdoor weddings. Although there are only a few months in Houston that are ideal for an outdoor wedding, it can be done when proper and early planning is involved. There are many wonderful outdoor wedding venues in Houston to choose from, but here are just a few of our most popular choices (listed in no particular order).
Houston Oaks Golf and Country Club
This special wedding venue features an authentic 15th Century French Chapel, giving you and your family a beautiful and unique experience. Weddings of any size can be held right outside the chapel doors, providing an elegant backdrop, or inside the chapel should the weather change on the day of the event. You can even make your vows beneath any of the gorgeous canopies of their century-old oak trees located throughout their 400 acres of property.
River Oaks Garden Club – The Forum
If you’re looking for a venue with breath-taking gardens, then The Forum at the River Oaks Garden Club is a great pick. Built in 1910, the Forum of Civics building is of recognized historical significance and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Its gardens provide valuable green space in the heart of the city. The Forum is only available for wedding ceremonies and receptions, rehearsal dinners, corporate, birthday or holiday parties, showers and photography sessions.
The Briscoe Manor located minutes from Houston offers their guests the flexibility of designing their special day using both indoor and outdoor venues. They have a variety of spaces that you can choose from including their chapel, outdoor courtyard, grand ballroom and lakeside grounds.

As one of Houston’s premier event venues, they feature their own courtyard and garden, giving you an intimate and romantic atmosphere. The courtyard and garden can be reserved individually or used jointly for your special occasion.
Agave Road is a magnificent private estate designed to transport you to “Old Mexico” – a time when life was just simpler and a place of calm and tranquility. The romantic retreat is nestled in the trees of this 30-acre wildlife sanctuary and lush greenery. Agave Road has an outdoor space with a patio and a romantic stone fireplace for your outdoor ceremony. If you choose to have an indoor ceremony, it can take place in front of the large wood doors for a rustic and intimate experience. Afterwards, you can dine and dance the night away inside or outside on the patio amongst the gardens.

We’ve already posted Morgan and John’s gorgeous wedding at The Houston Country Club on our old blog: Morgan and John’s Wedding. Her bridal portraits were just as beautiful so we thought we would share it with y’all!
If you have lived in Houston for just even a short time, you know that it is rare to come across days that are absolutely gorgeous – low in humidity, cool in temperatures, clear skies and rich in sunshine. It was one of those exceptionally rare, yet beautiful days when it came time for Morgan’s bridal portrait at the elegant Houston Country Club.
The superb weather and luxe venue supplied us with just what we needed for Morgan’s bridal session. Not only did we have great natural light throughout the morning, the Houston Country Club offered many wonderful indoor and outdoor settings to choose from, many of which featured vintage décor, antique furniture, bold bright colors, large and private spaces, and breath-taking greenery. We know Morgan really enjoyed every moment of her bridal session, just look at all the beautiful smiles!
