The Grove Wedding Venue Entwines Modern Architecture with Natural Elements in Your Houston Wedding

Who knows your dreams better than you?! And trusting a place to turn your wedding dreams into a beautiful reality is not as easy as it sounds. But this is your first time, not venues’. Having documented thousands of love stories, wedding venues in Houston understand brides’ visions and leave no stone unturned while bringing them to life. They say, "Houston is a city of dreams that are bigger than Texas- as big as the world." and we know “Everything is bigger in Texas,” both real and imagined! So if you are relying on a Houston wedding venue, you are in good hands. Half the battle! But miles to go before you say ‘I do’ (Literally!). Site tours are one of the most essential steps you can take toward booking a venue, and it’s imperative to come to a tour with an aim in mind and a wedding venue checklist in hand with all these questions at your fingertips. But you get into your car and hit the site, we recommend you read what we are going to tell you about this amazing wedding venue in Houston, which is the latest offering of legendary Schiller Del Grande Restaurant Group for your one-of-a-kind celebrations with gatherings of all sizes and types.

Discovery Green is a treat to all your senses and spring is a great time to enjoy it. Brides who have already visited this charming park probably might have caught sight of The Grove. But did you know that The Grove is also an amazing place to have a foodie-friendly rehearsal dinner, engagement party, or full-on wedding? Yes, the 10,000-square feet glass, wood, and steel restaurant- designed by Larry Speck, former dean of architecture at UT Austin, with interiors by Schiller Del Grande Restaurant Group partner Candice Schiller - is a sight for sore eyes and holds your big day and wedding-related events. Psst... you might win a very, very nice dinner with your special someone in the site’s giveaways introduced from time to time. So all Houston brides, make sure to get on that if you haven’t already.

Let’s have a quick look at the event spaces, The Grove uses to make your ‘The Grove wedding’ simply dream-come-true!

Primavera Room: Enveloped by a spacious private deck that has a breathtaking view of the natural gardens of Discovery Green Park, which includes the shaded walkway featuring 100-year-old oak trees, the butterfly garden, the Maconda’s Grove and the 10,000-sq. ft. Grace Event Lawn, the Primavera Room is located at the end of the main floor. Perfect to hold an intimate cocktail hour followed by a lavish dinner, this lovely room is decked out with Brazilian IPE wood and designer artichoke lamps flooding the decor with a golden glow for awe-inspiring wedding portraits. Slip away from the hustle and bustle of your celebration for some time to take a stroll in the park with your sweetheart and have some Instagram-worthy romantic couple photos clicked by our Houston wedding photographer. They would love to capture some golden hour couple photography amidst the aged oak trees!

Second Floor: Host your cocktail reception of 300 people on The Grove’s second floor. Boasting the interior space- Vista Room and the exterior patio- the TreeHouse Deck, the second floor is the largest private event space on-site. Offering unparalleled settings, this unique space is adorned with high ceiling glass windows that open to a private balcony. Live oak trees all around the Vista Room will make you feel as though you are swaying among the treetops. With a beautiful view of the theme gardens around the Discovery Green Park, the Vista Room is a completely private space, with direct access to the park. This is the place where the most interesting chapters of your wedding story would be documented by our wedding photographers in Houston. From the ‘first dance’ with your BAE to the emotional daddy-daughter dance to bridesmaids dance and groomsmen dance. Have some group photography with your bridal party and wedding guests under the warm lighting of elegant crystal chandeliers and natural light pouring in through large glass windows. And once you are done with all the essential wedding shots take a step out to the terrace with your brand-new spouse and allow him to kiss you at the Treehouse Deck and let our wedding photographers in downtown Houston capture you both smitten in love in the most creative frame with a cityscape backdrop of the downtown skyline! This moment will surely make you float on the clouds above the buildings scraping the Houston skies.

Owned and operated by the Schiller-Del Grande Restaurant Group, proudly serving Houston for over 30 years, The Grove is a two-story, ultra-urban restaurant wedding venue that is one of two restaurants located across the street from the convention center inside Discovery Green downtown park. Being an incredible culinary hotspot in Houston’s urban core since January 2008, The Grove takes pride in redefining the downtown dining experience. Good for you as well! As we know it’s scrumptious food that breathes life in an event. World-renowned Chef/Partner Robert Del Grande and The Grove team have crafted an exquisite Rustic American menu that features rotisserie and grilled meats and proudly supports local farmers by serving a variety of fresh local produce. On the menu is elevated Gulf Coast cuisine highlighting local and seasonal ingredients crafted by James Beard Award-winning Executive Chef Robert Del Grande and Chef de Cuisine Ryan Williams. The Grove’s Catering Manager and Beverage Manager will help you create a custom wedding menu from their superb wine list and extraordinary menu. Service ranges from passed hors d'oeuvres to stations, buffets, family-style, and plated meals. Their gracious and personable staff will render service to your wedding guests with precision and style. This personalized service combined with The Grove’s phenomenal setting will ensure your wedding day stress-free, memorable, splendid, and thoroughly enjoyable.

We love that this gorgeous ceremony space happens to be among the most eco-friendly places in all of Houston, It’s quite evident from The Grove’s on-site tomato and herb garden, and the restaurant’s use of “eco-friendly materials made from corn, sugarcane or coconut fiber,” along with its commitment to strict recycling and composting practices. They proudly feature Nordaq Fresh Water, containing minerals generally lost in other filtration processes. By bottling in house, the carbon footprint associated with imported & domestic bottles is significantly reduced.

You might have a million questions about the space such as will it fit your guest list? Does the venue offer the look and style you want? Is it a full-service venue? Do I have to use the venue’s list of vendors? Will it compliment my wedding photography? And so on. Couples dream and wedding photographers’ delight, The Grove in Houston is the most suited answer to all your answers. You’ll get a PDF layout of the whole event space (including ceremony, gift table, DJ, cake table, place card table, etc.) and updates regarding the table placement according to the number of guests you are expecting. The wait and catering staff at The Grove are so professional and are at their toe to attend every tiny need that may pop up anytime during the day to make sure your most important event runs smoothly without any bumps on the way. Shocker- they don’t charge a wedding cake cutting fee (come with the event) and no event rental fee as long as you meet the food & beverage minimum.

From unbeatable food and drinks to the drop-dead stunning beautiful setting in the lap of nature, The Grove is a one-stop-shop wedding venue that too without burning a hole in your pocket. With its proximity to so many hotels, as well, convenience is key. Your wedding guests can easily walk to the wedding and not have to worry about driving or calling a Lyft or Uber. And the simplicity of the space allows you to create something truly magical. Whether you choose to book the whole second floor as to have the Treehouse Deck for the ceremony or Treehouse Bar/Vista Room for the reception, The Grove is all by your side to create the wedding day of your dreams. And the cherry on the cake is the contemporary style of the venue as it allows for minimal decorations as the natural beauty of the venue and its surroundings are enough to embellish the ambiance for your sweet ceremonies. And if you are in luck your guests might get a chance to enjoy the events like an art fair that happen in the park. Who knows you get a few special wedding presents from your near and dear ones bought from the fair! All in all, The Grove is a wedding location that is not only perfect for value-savvy brides-to-be but also for the city brides who want to add a really natural, elegantly rustic feel to their wedding day without having to be an hour outside the city!
