Our daughter was married at Balmorhea in September. We had an amazing experience. The staff was wonderful to work with and very accessible. It was wonderful to have the Bridal Cottage and the ceremony and reception in such close proximity. We will definitely recommend Balmorhea! More...

My husband I were married here this summer and we could not have picked a more perfect venue. We loved the grounds and the versatility in how we could choose to set up our wedding. The chapel is beautiful and was the talk of all of our guests. Even in the heat of the summer, there was plenty of shade and beautiful places to be outside. Our pictures look incredible! The outdoor ceremony was a great place for wedding party pictures. We also loved the bridal cottage which made the whole morning of getting ready feel so relaxing. Finally, the staff was a dream to work with. They were flexible with us coming up to view the property since my mother lived out of state and could only visit at odd times. Melissa was helpful and supportive and gave us great vendor contacts. Everyone who attended couldn't stop talking about how much they loved the venue! We're so glad we chose the Balmorhea for our special day. More...

Our daughter’s wedding was here 6/22/2019. The venue is absolutely gorgeous. Every detail in architecture and the grounds, is painstakingly perfect. They had a beautiful wedding that made wonderful memories for them to last a lifetime. What can I say about Melissa… she is the most bubbly, adorable woman. She is so helpful throughout the process. Look no further for a venue for your special day. This one outshines them all. From the parents of Leslie and Kerry, thank you so much Balmorhea. More...

Local business has never been so great! Balmorhea offers a classy venue with a stunning view...much better than the expensive and underwhelming venues as you travel closer to Houston. All this and right in our back yard, Tomball, Magnolia, Pinehurst, Stagecoach, Decker Prairie, and the Woodlands. Thanks for serving our community so well. I can’t wait to book all of our girls’ events with you. More...

Nicely designed wedding venue on beautiful grounds. Good air conditioning as well which is needed since you can’t go outside due to the heat/humidity this time of year.

Balmorhea was the PERFECT venue for our wedding last month! Melissa was so helpful, and made everything very easy. We booked 2 years in advance because we knew it was exactly what we wanted in a venue. The bridal house is awesome to have everyone getting ready in and all my guests could talk about was how beautiful the venue was. We did an outdoor ceremony at 530 in June and it was perfectly shaded, so it never got too hot. HIGHLY Recommend Balmorhea to anyone looking for the perfect venue. More...

Stunning is an understatement. Balmorhea’s ceremony and reception areas are beyond anything any other venue in the area can offer. It is spacious and so ornate that it does not require a whole lot of decoration and floral cover up to fill a space. I could not have asked for more in a venue. The staff at Balmorhea is so encouraging and made the whole wedding planning process a breeze. Melissa never fails to make a bride feel remembered and cared for as well, which was a pleasant surprise from a venue owner. More...

There are not words to describe how beautiful the Balmorhea is or how wonderful Melissa, Lynsey and their team are. No picture (even the ones taken by our extremely talented wedding photographers) can do the beauty of their property and venue justice. You must go visit and see for yourself! As we were looking for a place, my fiance and I had lined up a day full of venues, and The Balmorhea was one of the first we visited. We should have stopped there. No detail -from landscaping to decor - is left unturned. It accommodates small and larger guest counts alike without losing the feel of intimacy. Our guest count was near 275 and so many commented (raved really) on how gorgeous and yet small the wedding felt because of the privacy of the property and the layout of the venue. With a chapel and porch, we didn't sweat the rain that happened on our day as well. The outdoor fireplace added to the romantic feel and the lake and fountains provided the feeling of sweet hill country escape. We were in love from day one (and still are)! Furthermore, while the space is GORGEOUS, the team at the Balmorhea makes it all the more special. If it weren't already amazing (and it is), they take it next level and set it apart all the more. From our initial meeting, Melissa's sincerely kind, friendly, hardworking, and welcoming personality made a lasting impression. She and Lynsey were consistently available and responsive, and their extensive knowledge of the industry as well as relationships with premiere vendors made planning seamless. It may seem like a small detail, but when you're planning a wedding, it's amazing (and wonderful) to see everyone work together as a team, and Melissa, Lynsey and their staff spearhead that. They have a sincere desire to make sure your day goes as planned and is as beautiful as you've dreamt. At the Balmorhea, you meet as prospective clients, quickly become friends, and leave as part of the family. It's a truly unique place, and we could not be happier with our choice. They absolutely made our wedding day and experience!! PS...go to their open house! We found some amazing vendors there including a string quartet that was to die for! Thank you Melissa, Lynsey and staff for making our day the BEST day and for the mark you have all left on our lives! More...

There aren’t enough words to describe the amazing experience we had at Balmorhea. Melissa was so easy to work with- always available and answered any questions I had. The property is absolutely gorgeous- you don’t need much to enhance it’s beauty. Everyone commented how beautiful it was too! It ended up raining right before our ceremony, so we moved our ceremony to the chapel. While I was soo excited for an outside ceremony, the chapel exceeded my expectations, and I even think turned out to be the better choice. You won’t be disappointed with this venue...absolute perfection! More...

My husband and I got married at Balmorhea on May 3, 2019 and it was an amazing day!I can’t recommend Balmorhea enough, not only for how beautiful the chapel, reception space and grounds are, but also for the staff and their efforts to go above and beyond. From the beginning, working with Melissa and Lynsey was great. From quick responses to great vendor recommendations, they were always super helpful! However, what really blew us away was the service and support we received on our wedding day. On our wedding day there was torrential flooding, tornado watches and road closures in Magnolia. Immediately after the storm cleared, Balmorhea staff was on site picking up debris, tidying the grounds from the storm, drying off walkways and rerouting our guests away from the flooded roadways. We cannot thank them enough for their efforts in making the day everything we had hoped for! The sun ended it up coming out during the ceremony and it was an unforgettable moment. They truly went above and beyond and I’d recommend them without hesitation to anyone! More...

Go for it! This place is absolutely amazing! I recently got married there and i chose this place for many reasons. 1. It’s Beautiful. 2. It’s a private place with a lot of space for everyone to enjoy. (All of my guests loved the place and enjoyed the open area which had a lot of spots perfect for pictures). 3. You can choose which ever vendors you want! It’s a plus because you don’t feel pressured to get anything you don’t want to ;) 4. Melissa is one of the sweetest persons I’ve ever met. She genuinely cares about you and does not pressure you to do anything you dont. She is very patient and honestly the best!5. The chapel is BEAUTIFUL. I wanted a venue that offered one and it honestly was worth it. It’s so beautiful inside with an amazing fountain view. And if you don’t want a chapel they have a beautiful outdoor ceremony area that also has a water view. 6. The groom/bridal “house” had a lot of space and was really fun to be in.Honestly a 5star place. Go check it out yourself to see what i mean -Sarah Herrera More...

Glad I chose Balmorhea for my April wedding! Melissa and staff were so helpful the day of and months leading up to the big day! The property as a whole is gorgeous, private and well lit at night. I was able to take my bridal portraits here as well which was awesome as the property looks so good! I would recommend this place to anyone looking to get married or have an event. More...

I don’t even know where to begin! Melissa is a complete doll. We met Lindsay but she’s just as amazing. They’re so helpful. All of my emails were responded to immediately with any questions or concerns I had. Melissa and Lindsay were always available via phone, email or text. They’re truly just a great management team.From the moment we toured Balmorhea we fell in love with her and the venue. It’s a stunning venue. The family built the venue and when your wedding is here you truly feel like family. Everything from communication, to payments and from set up, to break down was a seamless process. Their bridal suite is gorgeous. The lake is beautiful. The venue accommodated our 250 guests, with buffet and dance floor without issue. We have received TONS of compliments about how beautiful the venue was and to many it was the most beautiful venue they’ve been to. You have the choice of a beautiful outside ceremony looking over the pond or a wonderful inside the chapel ceremony overlooking the other pond. If we could do it all over again, we would choose Balmorhea 100x over. I can’t say enough great things about Balmorhea or the family that runs and operates it. We couldn’t have made a better decision to get married here. More...

Balmorhea was very professional, flexible, and helpful! We loved the venue from the beginning, when we had a tour and then we booked the same day. We made payments leading up to a month before the wedding. Which was very helpful! Anytime I had a question or anything at all they were quick to respond through email or a phone call. Luckily, we were able to drop off decorations the day before because they didn’t have an event. Melissa and Lynsey were a pleasure to work with!!!-Kirstyn S. More...

Y'all....I had a hunch that this was the best wedding venue in the NW Houston area, and the planning process and my wedding day confirms that is TRUE! Melissa was great to work with, and truly seeks to celebrate with you as you plan your day. Besides her, the best thing about Balmorhea is its natural, classic, and timeless beauty. I loved that we could keep decorations simple and the ceremony and reception still felt warm, full, and inviting - not much you have to add! It's the perfect blend of down-to-earth with a touch of rustic + classy and beautiful. The design touches in the chapel and reception area are thoughtful and unique. My other favorite things:-The FIREPLACE - cozy and homey!-Plenty of space (we had 200 guests)-The outdoor patio - cozy and fun with hanging lights and a real fire! Perfect for our December wedding.-The bridal cottage - it has everything you need, from plenty of space to hang dresses/suits, mirrors and plug-ins to get ready, to bathrooms, to a kitchen for wedding day snacks!-The land - it feels like your own private place, with tons of possibilities for great pictures, indoor and out.-The chapel - simple beauty, vintage pews, great view, and the smell of fresh wood.You just can't go wrong with Balmorhea. This place is a gift and you definitely get a "bang for your buck." Pictures to come!Thank you all for making my day unforgettable.-Annee H#houstonweddingvenue #magnoliaweddingvenue #bestweddingvenue #topweddingvenue #northwesthoustonwedding More...

I got married in October of 2018 at Balmorhea and we LOVED IT!!! It was so beautiful and turned out to be our dream venue ! Mellissa is so amazing to work with! She is so nice and understanding, she worked with us in our ideas and was extremely helpful ! The venue has a very private feel the way is it on a large part of land and away from the the road. It has so many trees and has such a natural tuscany feel with all the rocks. So romantic and unique I urge you to check it out ! At lest plan a visit and the rest will happen on its own !

Thank you Balmorhea for providing a very beautiful space for our wedding. Melissa was very nice and responsive to us theoughout the planning and after the wedding. The venue was available to us from 9am-12am, which is very nice. My family was able to enjoy their time for the whole day at the venue. The fountain and the pond was a beautiful background for our outdoor wedding ceremony. My dream wedding was realized at this venue. Thank you! More...

I had a very short engagement (6 months) and Balmorhea was FANTASTIC at accommodating the quick turn around time. Melissa and Lynsey are both incredibly sweet but also very professional. There were several times throughout the planning when they made me feel like more than just a customer. The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous and well maintained, and we LOVED having the HUGE bridal/grooms suite. We received so many compliments from our guests on the venue and how beautiful everything turned out. My family and I really could not have asked for a better experience! More...

My husband and I got married at the Balmorhea July 28th, 2018 and it was truly one of the best days of our lives. The venue was absolutely perfect! The chapel had just been built but we stuck to our original plan of getting married by the pond with the fountain on. It was cool and shaded and the guests were surprised to be comfortable outside in July. We had our reception in their reception hall, the building fit our guest count of 185 just right and there was plenty of room for dancing. We all danced the night away and had a fabulous time! Melissa and Lynsey Carswell were our main points of contact, they were both easy to contact and willing to answer any questions I had about the big day. If I could do it all over again, I wouldn’t change a thing! -Amanda Zapp More...

I searched online for a wedding venue for months without any luck of finding something that really peaked my interest. I wanted a modern, rustic venue that wasn’t too far away and didn’t have outrages prices. I also wanted to have the ability to choose my own vendors. One day I stumbled upon Balmorhea’s website and instantly fell in love. From my first tour all the way up until my big day, Melissa and Lynsey were very professional, helpful and down to earth. I don’t have any complaints at all. My wedding was beautiful thanks to this venue! My wedding guests were in awe of how gorgeous the property is. Pictures really don’t do it any justice. I would recommend Balmorhea to anyone who is looking for a perfect venue near the Houston area. You have to check it out for yourself! - Briya Taylor More...

If I could give Balmorhea more than 5 stars I would. I knew Balmorhea was the venue I always dreamed of from the second we pulled in! My husband and I couldn’t have picked a more perfect place for the best day of our lives. Melissa and Ashton are amazing to work with; they made sure that all of my crazy visions were brought to life. While planning a wedding from another city Melissa kept us at ease by staying in touch with us and answering our very many questions throughout the entire planning process! It was so rewarding working with someone who is as equally excited for your wedding as they are! I can’t thank Melissa and her staff enough for making this day the best day of my life! More...

This venue is beautiful. The first time and every time I drove up the long driveway up to the venue, I was always in awe.. . that “take your breath away” kind of feeling. Balmorhea was the first venue Steven and I had visited and literally the last because we booked them lol we fell in love and knew immediately. The outside scenery, the landscape, the venue, the bridal house and the new chapel is amazing. Don’t get me started with the bridal house, it’s a beautiful space for you and the bridal party to get ready and spend time together! We had so much space to work with and take pictures. There is nothing negative that I could say. Because of the location, Balmorhea just takes you out of all the hustle and bustle of the city and cars and you end up with peace, and quiet place full of just laughter for you and your family and friends. Melissa is the owner, and she’s just so chill and lovely, as well as the people who work with her. They are very accommodating and have great communication with their clients. They’re not hard to reach at all. We were actually very sad when the wedding and the planning was all over cause we had just gotten so close to them. I could go on and on about things in detail..just trust me, you can’t go wrong with Balmorhea wedding and events. More...

30 August 2018

This venue is absolutely gorgeous, and the property is breathtaking. My husband and I visited 13 different venues when trying to pick a location for our wedding, and Balmorhea was the only one that was even prettier in person than in photos. The location is great, only 10 minutes from hotels in nearby Tomball, and it's closer to Houston than many of the venues in the Magnolia / Montgomery area. We had our hopes set on an outdoor ceremony, and even though thundery skies loomed for much of the afternoon the day of our wedding, the rain held off long enough and we were able to have the ceremony of our dreams. The reception space is a good size, and thanks to the layout it didn't feel too big or too small for our 140 person wedding. Melissa was wonderful throughout the whole process; we couldn't have asked for a better person to work with! Choosing Balmorhea as the backdrop for our wedding was one of the best wedding-related decisions we made. More...

When my daughter's venue called on Monday afternoon to tell us that their facility had been affected by weekend rains and flooding and that they regrettably had to cancel our Saturday wedding we were in shock and panic! After a frantic search we happened upon Balmorhea Events who just happened to have had a cancellation. What a blessing for us! Balmorhea is absolutely gorgeous! We loved everything about this beautiful, rustic setting. The peaceful lakeside setting made a wonderful backdrop for an elegant and intimate ceremony. The bride's cottage was lovely and the reception area was so pretty that even our simple decorations were stunning. One would never had known this was not our original plan, although, had we known about Balmorhea earlier, it certainly would have been our first choice. More...

The beautify of the venue is breath taking and speaks for itself! From the perspective of the mother of the groom, there are two things that stand out above other venues I've been to. First, the staff is outstanding!! We wanted for nothing, were catered to hand and foot and above all encouraged to enjoy our time together instead of working. Secondly, the bridal suite allowed all of the bridal party and family to be together all day. We enjoyed precious moments with each other. Without the convenience of the suite, we would have missed out on those memories! Thank you to everyone of the staff for making our experience flawless!! More...

I cannot say ENOUGH about this venue! I love this venue and those who work there!!! Not only is it absolutely gorgeous and one of a kind they go above and beyond to make your day special and memorable for you. You have full access to the property and a nice size home on site with separate quarters for you and the groom. This allows everyone to get ready there the day of, which was amazing BTW! The venue itself is stunning without any additional decoration so we chose simple decorations. Melissa is such a sweetheart, she was helpful every step of the way, and made the process enjoyable and fun. Holly was with us that evening for our wedding and was very helpful and attentive. I wouldn’t have changed a thing that day, and loved working with such sweet ladies! More...

From the second I called to set up my tour all the way through the entire process I was treated like a princess, just like I was suppose to feel on my wedding day! Melissa was beyond accommodating, she worked around my schedule and made sure that everything I had every dreamed of could become reality. She is the sweetest and always has a smile on her face, not because she had to but because she truly loves what she does and loves us brides. You can just tell she is there to make you happy, and that makes her happy. The venue itself was also STUNNING. The entire venue is very well maintained and this also gives you amazing photo opportunities. So grateful the chapel was finished just in time for our ceremony because it is breathtaking inside and all the thought they put into every detail is what makes it absolute PERFECTION! You would not be disappointed going with Balmorhea as they didn’t even compare to other venues I toured. If you want a gorgeous venue, and someone to go above and beyond to make this the best day of your life, then this is the place and Melissa is your gal! � -Brittney C. More...

It was a very nice venue, the outside area was real nice lots of people moved out there when it cooled down. Either the get out of the loud music or to smoke. The only reason I gave it a 4 was due to the location, that's just my opinion! More...

What a special place to have your most important day! Our son was married at Balmorhea to the love of his life! I can’t put into words how great the staff at Balmorhea is. Everything went smooth and they were all so helpful. Thank you so much! More...

Honestly I never dreamed I could ever have such a beautiful wedding like I did. When we pulled up the venue in was breath taking. So I looked at my mother and mother in law saying “I don’t even wanna see it. I know we can’t afford it, I don’t wanna get my heart broken.” Once we went inside we met Melissa who was so sweet and very helpful. She wasn’t pushy or trying to push a sale on us right away like other venues. The venue was beautiful all on its own. I knew I wouldn’t need anything super fancy to make this place light up. Once we got down to budget and pricing Melissa was very helpful working with our budget. So when I found out I could have such a beautiful venue within our budget I was jumping with joy. Throughout the entire wedding planning on process they were very helpful and even came out with perfect layout for our guest. Fast forwarding to my actual wedding day seeing how my actual ideas were brought to life all I could do was cry it was so beautiful. All of our pictures came out amazing because of the beauty of the venue. We loved having the bridal cottage for us to get ready in and to hangout in before the ceremony. Our outdoor ceremony was perfect! And my reception was even better! I’m still receiving texts from guests raving on about how that was the prettiest wedding they had ever been to. I wouldn’t change anything about Balmorhea and I’m so thankful I’m able to call myself a “Balmorhea Bride” More...

We had our wedding at Balmorhea last month and couldn't have been more pleased with the facility! Melissa was fantastic to work with, the indoor and outdoor areas are absolutely gorgeous and provide a wonderful atmosphere for celebrating and photos. We definitely got what we wanted, a hill country feel without the drive. Having our wedding at Balmorhea was such a great decision and we had so many compliments on the wedding venue by our guests. Thanks again to the Carswell family for providing such a beautiful wedding venue! More...

I cannot say enough about Melissa and her team over at Balmorhea. Our experience from when we first stepped onto the property until after out wedding day has been nothing short of incredible. Melissa and Lyndsey were always just an email way for any questions or concerns I had leading up to our big day. The warmth and welcome I felt from their team made it a very easy decision to have Balmorhea as our choice of wedding venue. More...

I knew I wanted to have my wedding here since I found the ad for Balmorhea in a wedding magazine. We looked at two other venues, but nothing beat the professionalism, kindness, and pure beauty of Balmorhea along with Lynsey and Melissa! My husband and I fell in love with the wooden cross overlooking the pond with fountain, but we fell even more in love with the chapel. It literally took our breath away and we ended up being the 2nd wedding in the chapel. After the ceremony and reception we heard so many compliments from our guests about the venue itself. It was definitely a night that our guests and my husband and I will never forget! More...

Balmorhea was everything we were looking for in a wedding venue! After two wedding venues fell through (the second when it was two months away), our coordinator got us in contact with Melissa. She was able to quickly schedule us for a tour, and before we were even out of the vehicle to tour the property I knew I this was the place! This venue is stunning and even better than our original two venues. The property is picturesque and everything is extremely well managed! Melissa and her team are so accommodating and sweet - which just adds to the lure of the gorgeous venue! In the end, we are so happy with how things turned out. Without the crazy series of events that occurred throughout our planning experience, we would not have been able to have our perfect wedding at Balmorhea! More...

First time for Grammy Cake to provide wedding and groom cake services for a bride! Excellent and beautiful venue! The grounds were very well maintained as well! The bride had all her own vendors and everything seemed to run relatively smoothly! Hope to be back again soon! More...

My best friend got married here in October. The venue is absolutely beautiful and was perfect for their big day! The house where the bride and groom can get read is perfect and there is plenty of parking for the wedding party at/around the house. The weather was perfect and their outdoor ceremony could not have been better with the lake as the backdrop. More...

I had the pleasure of working with the team at Balmorhea Events for a June 2017 wedding. Their facilities are clean and beautiful. We had a scorcher of a day, but inside was nice a cool throughout the evening. Their staff was responsive to emails before and after the event and during they were quick to assist as needed. The bridal cottage has tons of space - perfect for those large Texas bridal parties - and has natural light which your make-up artist will love. If you're looking for a upscale take on a rustic venue with stunning outdoor spaces and plenty of room to get ready, give the team at Balmorhea a visit! **Images from a Chancey Charm wedding at Balmorhea Events, photography by Jennifer Vera Photography.
