Best Place For Wedding Hands Down! – I've been a bridesmaid in 4 weddings in the last 16 months and had my own reception this last July at the Courtyard on St James Place. I don't know how anyone can say one negative thing about this place. the 4 other brides and I shared much of the same guest list and I had more compliments than all of them combined. I got so many "best wedding ever" and "oh my god the food" not a single detail was missed. From the very beginning my coordinator was on point and basically treated my like her only bride. On my wedding day she went out of her way to make me feel calm and pampered. I trusted her to follow though with all of our meeting notes which she did and then some. I could not have asked for better service. Thank you Lori for making my dream wedding come true and for working so hard SEVEN MONTHS PREGNANT! I can't say enough good things about the Courrtyard st james.
Dream Wedding – I had my wedding here on 6/26 and it was my dream wedding. Hedi was amazing and helped us through every part of the wedding from the planning to keeping us on schedule at the wedding. We had our ceremony outside and the reception inside the garden room. Everything was beautiful and ran very smoothly. The food was delicious and the drinks were awesome. The staff were professional and experienced. They even packed a to go bag for us to take home! Everyone who attended out wedding has complimented it highly as well as the facilities and staff at Courtyard on St. James.
I highly recommend checking this place out for any event. My husband's company had their Christmas party here and that was great as well.
Courtyard On St. James Wedding – Our wedding was Saturday April 10th, 2010. The morning started out rainy, but the sun came out perfectly on cue.
If it was not for the following one complaint I would have nothing but praise for the Courtyard on St. James.
When researching venues prior to booking our wedding we asked the manager of the Courtyard if we would have to face two weddings occurring at the same time (as they rent out three separate parts of the venue). She assured us that they would never book double weddings and went on to explain if there were two weddings the same day, one would be in the day time and one would be in the evening.
It was to my great disappointment to walk in the morning of my wedding and find myself lost in the mix of another bustling wedding. Taking my bridal pictures proved difficult because the larger wedding had taken over much of the venue. Twice guests from the other wedding barged into my bridal suite looking for their Bride. The groom and groomsmen had much the same experience, as men from the other party asked...who are ya'll.
We were lucky enough to finish our vows minutes before the other wedding which was also outside, just on the other side of an iron gate began to blast their music.
Once the reception began thoughts of the other wedding faded and I enjoyed the rest of a wonderful evening. However, I do feel a bit cheated, instead of a beautiful bridal prep with my family & friends...I had a stressful start wondering....What the heck, is that another wedding???
When I confronted the manager about the double wedding she advised, oh they are not at the same time they are an hour apart! It was our mistake to place trust in verbal conversations without ensuring every single item was outlined in the contract, it is sad but true we live in a world of fine print.
Awesome!! – I had my wedding at the Courtyard and it was more than I could have hoped for!! The lady who had been helping me was the best ever!! The food was great the wedding was perfect and it will be a night that I will always remember!
Intimate wedding and special-events venue with lunchtime restaurant service. – In Short
Gardens and New Orleans-style surroundings create an intimate venue for weddings, receptions and other social events. The Ballroom (up to 300 guests) has a reception area, bandstand and dance floor, while the ivy-covered garden room and patio provides an alfresco venue for larger wedding parties. Weekday lunch is also served from 11am to 2pm. For smaller gatherings, the wine cellar has room for 60. The catering staff will customize a menu.
FanFarkinTastic – This place is great. It has the best salsa (pico de gallo) and iced tea in Houston. Try the shrimp and scallops (plate or salad), it will not disappoint.
