This place is my absolute favorite location in Houston to photograph. Yes people, this place is in Houston! The grandeur of Cocomar is so amazing, that you hardly even need flowers or decor because the location is so stunning on its own with Venetian-inspired murals, crystal covered chandeliers, and marble floors. This place just exudes elegance and class! Here's a few drool-worthy photos to show you all that is Chateau Cocomar.

As you drive through the iron gates you come around to this. This beautiful and regal chateau that looks like something out of a fairytale - complete with a majestic fountain right in front. I think that's why it's one of my favorite venues in Houston - it reminds me of Cinderella's castle at Walt Disney World - all regal and old world feeling.

Older homes make me think of that Gilmore Girls quote, "Just sometimes, it hits me. This place had a long history before us, has a long future after us. I keep thinking it's apart of our lives, but, really, it's the reverse. For a little while. . .I don't know. . .it's like we're apart of its life."

If I got married here, I would take advantage of all this gorgeous sunlight I could by having a brunch wedding. That way, I could have loads and loads of photos with light radiating through the windows. Dreamy!
