There’s never a dull moment in the Lone Star State.
Alongside its scorching sunshine, live music and world-renowned barbecues, Texas is renowned for its spellbinding natural landscape.
Its rich geographical landscape encompasses the lush greenery of the Hill Country, the plains of South Texas and Panhandle, prairies, lakes and countless more.
The remote Big Bend Country is one of the most dramatic natural spectacles in Texas. This vast, rugged terrain is absolutely breath-taking, precisely because it is so unpolished. It feels like you’ve not just left the city behind, but the whole of civilization along with it. Weddings here feel utterly private - like it really has been made just for the two of you.
Or, if a sunkissed beach wedding is what you’ve been envisioning, the Texas Gulf Coast boasts 600 miles of picture-perfect coastline.
Along this spectacular coastal stretch, you can visit quaint little towns, trek across the sand dunes, or explore the area’s rich cultural scene.
With scenery like this, it’s no surprise that the Gulf Coast offers a wealth of stunning wedding venues. There’s the classical Kemah Gardens, the Rancho La Pergola, the Centurion Palace, or the Cinnamon Shore on Mustang Island. Each one has its own distinctive, unique beauty - so don’t settle for the first one you see, tempting as it may be!
Or, if a city wedding is more of your style, Texas’ cities are equally as dynamic. There’s the capital city of Austin, the river walks and fairgrounds of San Antonio, or the famous museums of Houston.
In fact, NASA Space Center, probably the most famous of Houston’s tourist spots, offers a lot more than a science lesson. You may be surprised to learn that this is actually one of the state’s most sought-after wedding venues. It offers over 250,000 square feet of space for you and your guests, which is framed by more than 400 authentic artifacts from the world of space and science. It makes for a pretty unforgettable occasion.
As you can see, there’s a heck of a lot more going on in Texas than the stereotypical tourist attractions (as great as they are).
