When it comes to finding the perfect wedding venue for you, there are multiple factors to consider. As a wedding photographer, I always recommend my couples consider these main things! Firstly, consider the size of the venue. Will if comfortably fit the amount of wedding guests you are wanting to host? Secondly, is it in your budget? In a city as large as Houston, you’ll no doubt be able to find a venue within your budget. Ask around! Thirdly, does it fit the theme of your wedding? I always recommend finding a wedding venue that has amazing lighting! Additionally, consider the amenities. Getting ready spaces, outdoor areas, and parking are important wedding venue factors to consider.
If you’re looking for a venue right in downtown Houston, consider the Sunset Coffee Building. Owned by the Buffalo Bayou Partnership, this venue is small but stunning. Additionally, not as many people know about this one! If you’re looking for a small to mid sized wedding venue, the sunset coffee building should be on your list! Although it only fits a small number of guests, the views are stunning! Check out this sweet wedding! I absolutely adore the golden hour from this venue’s rooftop! No doubt, I would say this Houston wedding venue is towards the top of my list!
