The expansive grounds can accommodate an array of event themes, from rustic gatherings to elegant, extravagant receptions. Located less than 45 minutes away from downtown Houston, Balmorhea acts a picturesque retreat away from the fast-paced city life. Its various indoor event spaces and extensive outdoor areas can easily accommodate ceremonies and receptions of up to 320 guests. Each of the onsite structures boasts natural stone and cedar architecture, making for a stunning backdrop both inside and out. The main ballroom offers over 9,000 square feet of space, and boasts a bucolic, nature-inspired aesthetic with sophisticated touches. Exposed wooden beams and detailed chandeliers adorn the ceiling, while a robust stone fireplace stands with a deer head mounted on its mantle. For a more classically-themed ceremony, The Chapel features traditional pew seating, and a large window behind your altar. Their outdoor setting is surrounded by flourishing oak trees, and provides a clear view of the lake and fountains. You and your wedding party will have access to their dressing suite, which features lounge furniture, hair-and-makeup stations, and ample lighting.
