I am so glad I chose The Woodlands

I am so glad I chose The Woodlands. Due to inclement weather days prior to the wedding the grounds were too wet to hold an outdoor ceremony. Maren and her team were able to pull it off last minute. Everything turned out perfect. My guests loved the venue and the food from Great Blue Heron. I would definitely recommend the Woodlands to anyone in need of holding an event or venue. Everything was taken care of, and staff took the stress away with their professionalism.

So happy with our decision to have our wedding at The Woodlands!

We are so thrilled in our choice to have our wedding at The Woodlands. Maren and her team are absolutley incredible. Maren is friendly, helpful, organized and really went above and beyond to make our day perfect. She was accommodating and flexible with the unpredictable weather. Her team had chairs set up both inside and outside, so that we could wait until the last second to make a call about where they ceremony would be held based on the weather. She made sure I had everything I needed, and that the day of timeline we provided to her was honored. The bridal suite and entire venue was clean and set up exactly as we requested. There were ample places to take pictures both indoors and outdoors. We are so happy with our decision to have our wedding at The Woodlands!
