The Grove Houston Wedding Venue is a perfect spot nestled in the middle of downtown, right next to Discovery Green, and is perfect for a mid-sized wedding. I love how the park next door gives lots of options for photos, the option of nice hotels nearby for guests, and most of all their food is UH-MAY-ZING. If you're not getting married there, go have dinner downstairs on your date night.

The Barn at Swallows Eve in Fredericksburg is the quaint, quintessential Texas hill country wedding venue. The venue is family owned, has so many different spots to have your ceremony and a huge barn to dance the night away. Sara and Randy's patriotic military wedding was perfect even though their summer wedding had to be moved up to February (yay for ever changing military dates!)
