My daughter had her wedding 4 days ago at the Chateau Cocomar! I almost hate to give the venue all 5's for fear that readers won't think it is a real review, but I couldn't possibly give this venue anything less than perfect! It goes without saying that the Chateau Cocomar is the perfect enchanted castle that every little girl DREAMS of for her wedding day! But beauty alone, doesn't make the day go off without a hitch! The Cocomar staff and wedding coordinators were the reason that I can honestly say that I cannot think of a single way we could have made it better. From the very beginning, our coordinator, Dede, just "got" my daughter's vision for her wedding day! Whatever we needed or thought of, she just made it happen! On wedding day, we had last minute adjustments to table seating that would have made me crazy, but Dede just took control and handled it and all with a smile on her face.. and all while keeping everyone on schedule! I cannot thank her enough! The venue is just exquisite! Attention to every detail makes this place a one-of-a-kind venue to hold your most important event!
As my daughter was running with her new husband to their Getaway Car, she stopped and said to her dad and me, "This has been the BEST DAY of my ENTIRE LIFE!" So, thank you to the Chateau Cocomar and the Cocomar Ladies for being a huge part of our daughter's BEST DAY!

We celebrated our wedding at Chateau Cocomar on 9/28/13, and this was the perfect place for our wedding. The venue is spectacular and stunning it is the place to have your Dream wedding. I am very happy with my experience and will always remember how beautiful my wedding was. Karen, Sherry and Amanda were all amazing and very helpful throughout the process. I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone looking for a beautiful and unforgettable venue. Thank You!

Everyone at Chateau Cocomar was incredible to work with and worked so hard to make every detail of my Wedding day absolutely stunning and flawless. The castle is absolutely perfect, and I truly felt like a Princess getting married to my Prince Charming at a dream fairytale castle. I would highly recommend Dede Raad and Amanda Hough to any Bride looking at Chateau Cocomar for their venue. I loved every minute of the process with them and could not be happier with how my dream day turned out! Dede was my day-of coordinator, but worked so hard the entire month before via meetings, phone calls, and emails to make sure everything went off without a hitch!

I saw the Chateau Cocomar booth at the Bridal Extravaganza in 2012 when we were planning my mom's wedding and I knew I had to get married here!!! So when it was my turn it was the only venue I looked at and toured and actually had our date available! From the beginning to the end, everything was fantastic! Lorena was an amazing coordinator and a tremendous help in the planning of our big day! Pictures don't do this place justice! All the details and decor made our pictures absolutely amazing! I can't say enough about the venue and I am so happy that I went with my gut!

I would have to disagree with the people who rated this venue under 5 stars. I booked my wedding at this venue when it was still under construction because even then it was still more beautiful than all the other vendors in Houston. At first it did take a few days to get a response but that is completely understandable considering there hadn't been a wedding there yet and it was brand new but I was never turned down or ignored at all. I was offered wedding coordination service which I prompted to go with and got Dede who we were extremely impressed with and loved and was extremely helpful and friendly. I only got the day of coordination package but she pretty much helped me the whole month prior to my wedding which helped me out tremendously. I had a perfect wedding and didn't have to worry about a thing because of the awesome service. I've had multiple people tell me it was the most gorgeous wedding they have ever been too. Most people don't get to have their fairy tale wedding in a castle but I did! I would highly recommend this venue to anyone planning their wedding and trust me you and your guests will not be disappointed!

I wish I could go back and do it all over again! Chateau Cocomar truly does provide a space for a fairytale wedding. The day turned out more beautiful than I could ever imagine. For weeks after, everyone raved about how beautiful the wedding was and couldn't believe a place like that existed in Houston. We booked the venue while it was still under construction so the responsiveness from them at the beginning was a bit frustrating. I assume they were still acquiring staff. However, as it got closer to the wedding date and I was offered a coordinator from Chateau Cocomar, I always received a prompt email or phone call. My coordinator, Dede, made the day go by so smoothly. Once I met with her, I did not have to worry about my vendors anymore. She took over and made sure everyone else did their jobs. Overall, my experience was a very positive one. I highly recommend Chateau Cocomar if you are looking for that grand, out-of-the-ordinary feel for your big day.

We were so excited to have our wedding here!Chateau Cocomar is a beautiful, elegant venue and we loved the ambiance and the romantic atmosphere it added to our special day. We especially enjoyed working with Lorena, who was a big help in organizing things in the months before the wedding and Dede took the reins and helped make our wedding day a success.
Be prepared to spend! With the cost of the venue and extras it could become pricey. But what's price compared to a priceless experience.

This is the absolute best place to get married! The owner and staff are very professional and helpful. This was the second venue that we looked at and knew immediately that we wanted to have our wedding here. The Staff and Owner at Cocomar are very friendly and helpful. They made sure that our wedding was everything that we imagined.
I also used Chateau Cocomars service for my Day of Coordinator. Let me just say that I didn't have to worry about anything! From arriving at the venue to start getting ready to the end of the reception, everything that day was PERFECT!
