This wedding venue in Houston has such a great vibe. Built in 1903, Station 3 was one of Houston’s first fire stations. Known as “The Stonewall,” we’re fans of it it’s original brick, wood floors, and concrete beams, giving it a vintage/urban feel that is definitely authentic. We also love how transparent the wedding venue is with it’s pricing on it’s website, and brides rave about the team working there.

Out of all this wedding venues in Houston, the Julia Ideson Library checks all our boxes. From the perfect location (the heart of downtown Houston in walking distance to great hotels) to the overall charm and layout, this wedding venue seemingly has it all. The only downside is that it comes with very little included, however given the beauty of the building you’ll most likely need very little in terms of additional decor.

    Thanks for the wonderful information. I want to add one more name to this list and it is HOUSE PLANTATION. It is basically in Texas and near to Houston and spread over 18 acres of land . It can accommodate around 325 guests. The speciality here is that it is an all-inclusive wedding venue and have all inclusive facilities like catering, bridal makeup, decorators etc.
