Everything was perfect! Our coordinator Angie Stubler was super sweet and very patient with everything we asked for. She did things for us without even asking.

From the moment we had our first visit, we knew this was where we wanted to have our wedding! They took care of everything down to the smallest detail, and continued to meet with us throughout the whole process on every detail. The food was delicious, especially the lamb pops...

Anything we needed, they supplied! I can't say enough about our coordinator, Meredith! She was so easy to work with and took care of us throughout the whole process! She dealt with any hiccups so that everything came off smoothly and seamlessly. I felt like she had become part of the family by the end of everything. All of the staff were professional and worked together perfectly! We could not have been any happier with how everything turned out! Thank you Meredith, and The Bell Tower on 34th!

Ashton Adduci was our event producer and we couldn't have asked for a better one! Ashton is so down to earth, easy to talk to and knows exactly what she is doing.

After searching through quite a few other venues, my husband and I contacted Donna at The Bell Tower on 34th and were able to quickly see the space. The venue is conveniently located with plenty of parking, has multiple spaces for rental, and an extremely friendly staff. Donna... Read More was so helpful in picking out the space, setting our menu, and helping us with each step of the way. She also gave us tips on vendors, a referral to our planner (Lauren @ Something to Celebrate, another rave review) and let us know if we were skipping any steps. I cannot say enough good things about the venue itself; it is very classy, quiet, and well-organized. The venue does not allow for outside food or liquor, which was the only potential downside we experienced, but it was very reasonably priced and their internal catering was excellent and well received by our guests. They have online payment and bookings for their tastings, so scheduling things was a breeze. We live in St. Louis, so we had my husband's parents attend the tasting in our place and even though Houston traffic made them late, the Bell Tower's staff was still able to help get things done. Again, highly recommend this place!!!

We had been to this venue before, loved it and naturally thought of it when planning our wedding. We met with Ashton, our coordinator, to start the planning. She guided us through a lot of the details that we could have overlooked and helped us plan the perfect day. Everything... Read More was very professional, from the menu tasting to the timing of the entire day. I arrived before the event a nervous wreck, thankfully Ashton reassured and convinced me that she would get everything taken care of and all I needed to do was get ready. There was a small, early hiccup involving flowers- Ashton quickly improvised and had things moving along again in no time. Once it all got under way I was able to just relax and enjoy the day. The food was good and many of the guests complimented not only the menu but the service and the entire venue. It would have been hard to find a more elegant place to be married and we were very lucky to have such an organized coordinator helping along the way!

This was an incredibly beautiful venue. Working with Meredith was a wonderful and stress-free experience. Our wedding at the water wall was amazing and the reception inside the ballroom was beyond anything we could envision. Our guests were excited to go to the place and...

Also, their preferred vendors made it easier to plan as I was able to find vendors I could trust that had experience at the venue. Also kudos to Chef Sergio as the food was incredible. I cannot say enough good things, except THANK YOU for making our wedding so beautiful and memorable.

I can't say enough great things about the Bell Tower. Leslie was our coordinator and she was awesome - from the time we requested a quote to the wedding itself, Leslie was extremely professional and her execution of the events and details of our wedding day were very precise.... Read More She communicated any potential issues with our requests timely and offered comparable alternatives (specific chargers and wines). Leslie took care of everything - we didn't have to lift a finger on our wedding day. She executed the timeline of the day flawlessly and kept everything running smoothly - we also had a couple of timeline adjustments on the day of our wedding and she took care of everything. Additionally, the venue itself is so beautiful. We had our ceremony in the Water Wall Courtyard, which is so scenic and beautiful on its own, we only added minimal decor. Our reception was in the Carillon Ballroom, which is also so beautiful. We did a seated dinner and gave the guests an entree selection (on the rsvp card) and the waitstaff carried out the instructions accurately and efficiently. The food was also excellent - we served the Caribbean Lobster, 8oz Rib Eye, and Vegetable Risotto. We highly recommend the Bell Tower for your wedding!

We had a great experience with the Bell Tower on 34th. Our coordinator, Millicent, was easy to work with and she was always extremely responsive and never left us waiting for anything. Because we live in Lubbock, TX, planning a wedding in Houston definitely had its challenges... Read More but Millicent helped take some of the stress off of us. We were planning on having our wedding in June 2017, but do to a wonderful surprise, we discovered that my wife was pregnant! We decided to move our wedding date to a sooner date (September, 2016) and the Bell Tower was extremely accommodating! Millicent also made sure that my wife had plenty of ginger ale and snacks in the bridal suite to help ease her morning sickness. The Bell Tower as a venue is beautiful (the pictures only do the venue a sliver of justice). Our ceremony and reception were held in the Contessa Room which was a perfect size for our relatively small wedding and the staff at the Bell Tower did a great job flipping the room from ceremony to reception. We decided to do a day-time wedding (11am-4pm), and the prices to use the venue and for the food were very reasonable. Because our wedding was in the day time, we were allowed to take our wedding pictures anywhere on the property since there were no other events in progress, which was great. The food was absolutely delicious (especially for wedding food!), and they even catered to a few of our vegetarian friends who had nothing but great things to say about their dishes. We had a few kids who were also very excited to get their own special plates of chicken strips and French fries, which was great. Some other friends also mentioned that the coffee was amazing. We don’t drink alcohol but we still wanted to do a champagne toast with sparkling juice. Millicent made sure that happened and it was free of charge too since we had asked for the drink package (tea, coffee, juice, etc.). The wait staff was good for the most part, except they forgot about a table of guest when serving our cake, so they ended up waiting for a while before having it. At the time we made our contract with the Bell Tower, they had an option for our buffet to be served Caruso style (meaning the wait staff plated the food for our guest so they didn’t have to stand in line) which was free. We later learned that the venue had begun to charge for that service but we were told they would still honor our initial contract. Unfortunately, in the end, they had told us that they would have to charge us for it, so we decided not to have Caruso style for our guest. We thought that seemed a bit unfair because it was in our contract as being free of charge but we just decided to forget about it instead of raising a stink about it. A wedding has so many different moving parts and there are so many mistakes that can be made and things can be easily forgotten. While there were a couple mistakes on our wedding day, Millicent went above and beyond in almost everything she helped us with. She was a great listener when we discussed how we wanted our big day to go and seemed genuinely excited to be helping us along. I highly recommend asking for her to be your wedding coordinator the day of if you are planning on using The Bell Tower for any event. Even 6 months later when we talk to our friends and guests, they still talk about how beautiful our wedding was, how great the food was, and a few still tell us how good that coffee was.

The Bell Tower simply cannot be beat on a quality-to-cost basis for an event.

She could buckle down when discussing the details, big and small. However, in her super cool and laid back manner, she really went above and beyond whenever we had ideas that were thrown her way, out of the blue! We had an impromptu performance, children's game and a still life setup, that she took her time to rearrange during our reception.
