FRENCH INSPIRED HOUSTON WEDDING VENUE
THE CREATIVE CHATEAU
When my friend Jessica, the owner and creative talent behind the Houston wedding hair and makeup team Adorne Artistry, purchased an amazing french architecture-inspired home, she had great plans for it- starting with the space for her business on the third floor of the home. Adorne Artistry’s space is amazing and so accommodating for her clients. The majority of her clients are brides who come in for hair and makeup trial runs before their wedding day, engagement session, bridal session, or boudoir sessions. It has everything you could possibly need for an amazing experience. There’s more natural light in her space than I knew what to do with, comfortable seating for family members or friends who come along with you to your appointment, beautifully and locally made hair accessories available to purchase for brides who haven’t settled on their wedding day jewelry yet, and more french antiques to feast your eyes upon than you’re ready for. Pure gorgeousness!
Beyond homing her amazing Houston wedding hair and makeup team’s home base, one of the functions she’d like for the new property to serve, is to host intimate weddings. This venue starts off on a great foot that most other venues might not- it has great, aesthetically pleasing bones to start with. It doesn’t need a ton of decor if you’re looking to have a timeless, European inspired, minimalistic wedding, but it could also be dolled up to match the French wedding vibes of your dreams (more inspiration for that idea to come to the blog in the near future ;) ). Every little detail has been thought out in this space, from doorknobs to mirrors to furniture to the stunning staircases, and let’s not forget all of the amazing chandeliers.
Beyond the blank European canvas provided by the space, the amount of light that floods the venue is amazing and ideal for those who want a naturally lit wedding ceremony. The Creative Chateau offers two ceremony spaces on the property: an outdoor ceremony space in the quaint courtyard style backyard with an amazing old oak tree, and an indoor space surrounded by windows. The outdoor space is timelessly designed. Surrounded by white homes, light is reflected into the cobblestoned, beautifully landscaped space. The indoor space offered provides the best of both worlds: indoor shelter from the elements with the convenience of the natural lighting provided by the many floor-to-ceiling windows surrounding the space.
It’s an inspiring and luminous Houston wedding venue for the discerning couple, and I can’t wait to continue to photograph there. They are open for business (both hair and makeup AND weddings) and now accepting clients. Shoot me an email if you’re thinking of getting married there- I’d love to work with you!
