Venue Review: Chateau Polonez | Houston Wedding Photographer
A couple weeks ago, I went to Chateau Polonez in North Houston; halfway between Tomball and Cypress and toured the venue and got some images for those of you who might be looking for your dream wedding venue. Basia also gave me some history on the location and answered a few questions.
"Chateau Polonez began as an idea from Ania that became a dream come true. Ania immigrated to the United States from Poland in her 20’s after spending a few years in France first. Upon Ania’s arrival to the States, she dove into floral and catering; she knew how to make a party come to life."
"After many years hosting small events, she wanted a beautiful place to call her own. Ania knew she wanted to have a European inspired building with a modern twist, and drew on her knowledge of European architecture for inspiration."
"After opening its doors in 2005, Chateau Polonez has kept with Ania’s original idea of one-of-a-kind events that offer delicious, freshly prepared food by our in-house caterer, Glorious Cuisine, in a warm inviting atmosphere. Ania’s daughters, Basia and Kasia, run the venue now and are keeping Ania’s dream alive."
"The meaning of Chateau Polonez is in two parts drawing from Ania’s European roots. Chateau can be interpreted as a castle in French. Polonez is a polish dance that originated in the 18th century and was always the first dance at the beginning of the ball that couples participated in. It is one of the five historic national dances in Poland."
What is your ideal bride and groom like? What qualities do they have? What are their interests? "All of our couples are unique in their own way. We like how every couple transforms the building into their style. We always love seeing the vision that they have for their wedding and seeing it come to life."
