Book Your Wedding with 15 Acres
A BALLROOM IN HOCKLEY, TX
Couples enjoy the luxury of modern amenities and the freedom and peace of an entire large property when they book a wedding and reception at 15 Acres in Hockley, Texas. The venue only rents to one wedding party each day, so the couple and their guests can go where they please, when they please, anywhere on the property. With a capacity of 250 guests and 15 acres of land to explore, there is plenty of room for the party to stretch out on the gated property. Couples can choose their level of service, depending on if they are hands-on wedding planners or require a little help choosing vendors, decorations and more. The rustic waterfront location is surrounded with luxuriant trees and bushes, providing a serene environment with endless photo opportunities.
Banquet Hall . Located within the main house, the banquet hall is an ideal place to hold the reception. With all the comforts of an indoor reception area, the banquet hall is lined with generous windows to let in the sunlight and views of the lush landscape. The 5,000-square-foot banquet hall holds up to 250 guests.
Also located in the main house, the bridal suite has a private bathroom and dressing room so the bride can prepare for her grand entrance onsite. The groom's house is a separate building outfitted with a bar and large-screen television to keep him occupied before the main event, so members of the bride and groom parties can ensure the groom doesn't catch a glimpse of the bride before the ceremony.

15 Acres was a dream of a venue. The staff was so helpful before and during the event. The interior is elegant modern since it is new construction. Also the exterior grounds are beautiful and served for our wedding pictures. I would highly recommend this venue. Ari thank you so much for helping us having a dream wedding.
We are so glad we chose 15 Acres for our daughter's wedding on September 30, 2017! Stephanie and Ari were so easy to work with, answered all my questions and helped us make decisions as we were planning. This is a brand new venue - it was still being built when we booked it. The setting in the country is so pretty and peaceful. We had the ceremony outside and the reception inside the beautiful building. Fortunately the weather was perfect for us but the venue has a huge covered porch where an outside wedding can be held if the weather is bad. The Bride's room is perfect, with huge mirrors, salon chairs for make-up and hair and comfy chairs and sofas. The Groom and his friends had a separate cabin where they played pool and video games before dressing for the wedding. The bar is handled through the venue so that was one less vendor we had to worry about. Our guests were all impressed with our venue! The venue is really beautiful, but the best part is working with Stephanie and Ari!
My daughter's wedding was scheduled for December 17th, 2016 at a privately owned venue. On December 11th we were told that we could no longer use this location. Of course we were scrambling to find an alternative venue to house 250 guests. 15 Acres was one of the venues I called on Monday morning. Even though their Reception Hall was not quite finished they were willing to do what it took to make my daughter's wedding a reality for that coming weekend. Can you imagine the service you will get when the facility is up and running in full force? The grounds and reception hall are going to be breath taking when all is finished this January. Brides you really need to go check out 15 Acres. Stephanie and her daughter Ariel are amazing! They will do what it takes to make your day perfect!
My now husband and I, absolutely loved this venue. From the time the broke ground until the grand opening- they were completely accommodating and helpful every step of the way. The total experience was worth every penny. The entire evening and afterwards, we were getting complements on the beautiful venue we had picked and how did we find it. The owners and staff there were accommodating to our guest as well as the wedding party. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day! The surrounding area and pavilion where the ceremony took place were absolutely beautiful. The pictures the photographer took there were amazing. The grounds provided the perfect backdrop to the photos! If you are looking for a serene and scenic place for your marriage ceremony and reception, look no further! This is definitely the place. The lake looked beautiful in the photos, the surroundings provided a simple, yet elegant touch, and the customer service from the entire staff really made the difference to make this place a hidden gem. Just as they wished us nothing but happiness, sincerely, we wish them nothing but the best as they continue to make brides and grooms alike- feel out of this world on their special day. We can't thank Ari and Stephanie enough for making our dream wedding become a reality!
Absolutely fantastic!! We had a corporate anniversary party here, not a wedding, and the whole time I was imagining how amazing it would have been to have my wedding here. The place is beautiful----you feel like you are in your own secluded world without traffic and normal life distractions. The main building is gorgeous----2 walls of windows overlooking the pretty pond (filled with fish---we had several kids catch their first-ever fish!!!). We had room to comfortably put 150 guests AND the serving area AND a photo booth AND a DJ/award presentation area AND a coffee station with dessert presentation AND an entire casino party set-up (which alone took up 900 square feet) AND several tables of products , give-aways, and prizes. The owners were AMAZING---super willing to work with us on everything (they even helped us decorate, and they were invaluable helping strategize the layout and coordinating all the inside vendors!). The front area had plenty of room for a welcome table without interfering with the flow. The grounds are beautiful---tons of space surrounded by trees (perfect for the outdoor games and bounce houses!), with a cute gazebo (perfect photo backdrop for you brides!) and a HUGE open concrete porch with the biggest ceiling fan I have ever seen. The porch made the perfect spot for some high tables and overlooked the pond. It was a hot day but it stayed cool on the porch. I have never written a review about a parking area, ha ha, but they have the smartest area out front---I can see where it a would be a perfect for a picturesque carriage or getaway car. We had two giant event tents set up out there and it didn't take away from the access to the building or porch in any way. Something else we considered an unexpected bonus for our corporate event---they have a separate little cabin about 100 yards from the main building (not so far it isn't readily accessible for even the elderly guests , but far enough that you can feel like you have your own space). They had a big tv in there and we were able to play a popular football game in there----several of our employees spent some time there playing pool, watching the game, and relaxing on the back porch area. It felt like a retreat. Full kitchen and game tables---we didn't need it, but I could imagine some fun times for the guys. They even had a bunch of DVDs in there! The bartenders were GREAT--- organized and friendly, nobody was ever left waiting. Overall, this was an absolutely amazing spot for our company event and the owners were heaven-sent. I have had SO many happy comments from attendees and even kuddos from my boss! I am very jealous of the future brides that have their weddings here, ha ha.
I'll try to keep this short. My wife and I were excited about our daughter's Big Day. Being a professional in the industry, they both began to make plans 1 year in advance. Of course, 1st on the list was venue. They decided on 15 Acres bc the proposed vision fit her style. My daughter sent out Save the Date to guest list with Dec. 26th wedding date. This had to be changed bc Stephanie said building wouldn't be completed in time. We asked her for time-line to base new date. We agreed on Jan. 21st. New save the dates were sent out. My wife and I visited with Stephanie 2 weeks prior to our daughter's Big Day. We walked the venue and it was obvious that it was still understand heavy construction. Stephanie said not to worry bc everything would be completed less a handful of minor items to which we agreed. I asked several times for a Plan B but she assured us none was needed. I told her my wife always has a backup plan.We went ahead and shared with her our backup plan in the event it rained. Anyways, we left the meeting that day with no Plan B and still worried. The vendors, as usual, like to visit the venue in advance so they can prepare their game plan. My wife received a call from a vendor and suggested that we visit bc it still didn't look like it was close to completion. Right away we schedule an appt with Stephanie, to which she gladly welcomed it. On Friday morning, a day prior to the wedding day, we drove an hour to face, what turned out to be a wedding planners nightmare. Stephanie welcomed us and walked us through the venue and said "it all looks great for tomorrow!" She said how the walls, although not finished (not painted, only tape and float), looked like a "beautiful pattern." This was the entry. We walked inside and no ceiling tiles were installed only the ceiling grids. Her comment was, "your guests won't even notice bc they'll be looking at the beautiful chandeliers." Long story short, we did not have our daughter's wedding here. Stephanie could not give us a solution while under pressure. My wife and I maintained our composure and kindly asked her to get on the phone and give us names of her competitors. It wasn't until 5 pm that we finalized on Agave Estates. Yes, we had to call EVERYONE with last minute change. I can go on but the point is that with such a major event as this and with so much at stake, we could not rely on 15 Acres to put a smile on daughter's face. Instead, we had major help from friends in the industry.
